  • About Carol

    Not all real estate agents are created equal. Each brings unique skills, experience, and personalities to the table, with the goal of helping clients achieve their buying and selling objectives. Carol Carruba is positively different—and her results show.


    Experience Matters

     Got experience?  Carol Carruba certainly does. For nearly 40 years—39, to be exact—she has successfully helped clients turn their real estate dreams into reality. With a unique combination of industry expertise, market knowledge, and highly personalized service, Carol is a sought-after agent for buyers and sellers in the San Francisco Bay area. In fact, since 1978 she has closed more than 190 transactions, reflecting her results-oriented approach in meeting each client’s needs. Working for Compass, she is a member of the Estates Division, which focuses on luxury properties throughout the Bay area.


    Home is Where the Heart Is

    A native of San Francisco, Carol has never left. Having been born and raised in “one of the most beautiful cities in the world,” she is motivated to help others find their place here. Beyond her personal devotion to the area, Carol has first-hand experience as both a buyer and seller of properties in and around San Francisco. She has owned condominiums, a multi-unit income building, and single-family homes, and she currently resides in Pacific Heights. This translates into unique local market insight for her clients.


    What’s more, Carol is an active member of the community through her membership at Calvary Presbyterian Church, where several of her clients also attend. In addition, she is a member of the San Francisco Education Committee and participates in the Compass Community Fund. She also has helped serve organizations supporting abused women and children and breast cancer awareness. 


    All Kinds of Kinds

    Beyond her intimacy with the local market, Carol has vast experience with all types of properties. She represents buyers and sellers of single-family homes, condominiums, and co-operative apartments, as well as residential income. She is well familiar with all of San Francisco’s unique neighborhoods, providing clients with a real perspective on their potential home or property. Carol also has been a designated Senior Real Estate Specialist the past 10 years, helping many seniors successfully downsize and relocate to senior communities.


    Strongly Recommended—Only

    Carol takes great pride in that 100% of her business is through client referral, a testament to her exceptional rate of customer satisfaction. Her commitment to extraordinary personal service comes through with each recommendation. So does her organization, attention to detail, strong listening and communication skills, savvy negotiation tactics, and effort to exceed every client’s expectations. A highly educated professional with a B.A. degree from San Francisco College of Women, Lone Mountain College—as well as an elementary school teaching credential—Carol turns complex and sometimes stressful real estate transactions into smooth, pain-free experiences for her clients. Just ask, and they’ll tell you.

    Beyond the Sale

    But perhaps what separates Carol most is her ability to develop and sustain long-term relationships with her clients. She believes her job is less about the “deal” and more about real people with real dreams and desires. Carol is single-mindedly devoted to helping clients achieve their goals, whatever those may be, and following up on a regular basis to address any changing circumstances or opportunities. The result is not only an extremely satisfied customer base, but also many strong personal relationships and lifelong friendships with her clients. Known for operating with honesty and integrity, Carol is a real estate professional you can trust.
