I spent significant time researching and deciding on a real estate professional to make a high value home purchase in Potomac, MD from many states away while our family was looking to relocate to the area. During a very competitive market and with limited inventory, Caryn managed to secure us our dream house, off-market, in our ideal neighborhood, and while she had to play point on everything with us in another time zone. There truly is no better choice than Caryn Gardiner for real estate in Montgomery County (she also knows every street in Potomac like the back of her hand). Caryn quickly became a friend, taking all the pain and complications out of the process, always communicating with total frankness and when in negotiations she is both brilliant and creative. Caryn has a vast, twenty year network of peers, lenders, tradespeople, stagers, the list goes on and on. Caryn is kind and funny - a sincere pleasure to be on the real estate journey with, but has the ability like few professionals I've met to achieve remarkable outcomes with deep industry knowledge. - lorettahlandry

Caryn Gardiner’s knowledge of the area, contracts and connections elevate her to the next level of real estate agent in Maryland. We value quick transactions and availability and she consistently answered questions, had documents ready and connected us with services many times before we even asked. If you are looking for personal service and professionalism she is #1 in my book. - Kristin Lee

If you are planning to buy or sell a property in DMV area, Caryn is THE BEST. We bought our home at our dream location with Caryn's help in the craziest time possible for a buyer. She knew and understood what we were looking for. Being real estate investors, we have dealt with many real estate professionals in past, thus have a fair amount of experience. She does not push her buyers or sellers for something which is not in their best interests. Very patient, knowledgeable, and a pleasant personality. I recommend Caryn, 10/10. THANK YOU, CARYN!!! - richatyagi1

We had worked with Caryn previously on the sale of a home in Rockville where we had been impressed by her prompt responsiveness and resourcefulness, work ethic and can-do attitude. Several years later we suddenly decided to purchase a pied de terre in Bethesda and contacted Caryn out of the blue. Despite being out of town on a family matter she arranged for a same day showing of properties, guided us through writing a strong contract. Within 48 hours our offer was accepted, followed by settlement 3 weeks later. We continue to be impressed by her all around customer service and knowledge of the industry. She is just the advocate you want in dealing with other realtors. The responsiveness and diligence of both Caryn and her assistant Steffi is unbeatable, which is so critical in calming nerves, attending to detail and ensuring that every aspect goes smoothly. We could not have been more pleased with the services delivered. - swantiques2

Thank you, thank you, thank you Caryn for all of the hard work and effort you put in to help us sell our house. Our house sold for much more than we expected, and we owe it all to Caryn's focused efforts and extensive networks. She worked with us to get everything ready for market - she had a long list of service providers that helped with yard work, power washing, and general maintenance. She also went above and beyond with extensive marketing and staging. In short - she's awesome! It is truly in your best interest to have her sell your house. - jphilibotte0

Caryn was an absolute pleasure to work with. Being from out of state, she knew the area very well and helped us decide where would be best for our family. She also knew how to keep us competitive and get into a home during an uncertain and difficult market. We would work with Caryn again and can’t recommend her enough! - Charlie Eberly

We had an incredible experience selling our home with Caryn. From beginning to end of the entire process, Caryn walked us through every step with her knowledge of the market, her expertise in staging, her empathy and compassion of our 20 years in the house, her physical presence and availability along with her strong negotiation skills. We recommend her highly and are so happy we literally had her in our court. - Tracie Levine Saltzman

As a first-time homebuyer I approached the process with a fair deal of trepidation and uncertainty, but I found the perfect guide and teacher in Caryn. From scheduling showings to creatively negotiating to close on my property, she was an incredible teacher throughout the process. She's also the most responsive person I've ever met, which mattered a LOT. For important life decisions like homeownership, seconds can feel like an eternity. Whenever I was uncertain or unclear about an issue, especially as we were putting in offers in such a competitive housing market, Caryn promptly provided perspective, directness, and a great deal of creativity which allowed us to move forward with the process and allay my many concerns. She's also just a great person with immense knowledge about the local market. I couldn't put a price on that, and I can't imagine working with anyone else. Highly, HIGHLY recommend. - falsificationism
