"Are you looking for one of the absolute best real estate agents you'll work with? Look no further than Carter. He is wise beyond his years and hustles for you 110% all the time (even when life gets in your way and you're not able to make that one open house, he'll make sure to send pics, vids, and comments to make sure you don't miss out). Hate pushy sales agents? Hate agents that are only committed to you for the short run? Hate agents that are not dependable and think of you merely as a transaction? Me too! That's why I chose Carter; he is the complete opposite. He will give you his candid feedback and strategies for putting you in the best position to win an offer; listen to your needs; and never push you into something that you are not comfortable with. He will stand up for you during negotiations and will always have your best interest, never treating you merely as a transaction. I plan on continuing to work with Carter for years to come. If you are a discerning client and have incredibly high standards, Carter will exceed your expectations!" - Eric

"Carter is a consummate professional. He is extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and overall pleasant to deal with. I could tell that he adapted quickly to accommodate how fast our buying timeline was; every step of the way he kept things moving quickly with fast turnaround. I couldn't imagine there's a better agent in the bay than Carter. Cheers to the great work!" - Adam

"Carter is one of the best agents out there. He has worked with us for over a year, showing us homes and probing a daily feed of new listings that meet our requirements along with an explanation of why certain ones are better. He is easy to work with and took time to understand our changing needs and has access to a large pool of off-market properties." - Sabrina

"Carter is very thorough and patient and knows the neighborhoods across SF very well. He was equally responsive and timely throughout the process. We looked at a number of different areas across the city, and Carter was always able to provide thorough reviews of pricing trends and insight into competition during the bidding process." - John

"Carter has shown me dozens of homes in the past 5 months. As a first-time buyer, I had no idea what to expect…Carter walked me through the process and earned my trust immediately. Since the first contact, he's leveraged technology to make my home search as efficient and effective as possible. After our showings, Carter provided his honest feedback on each home and how they compared with other opportunities. He’s an absolute expert on the San Francisco market and has great insight into what the future holds. Almost every week Carter shares off-market homes with me that unlock properties most buyers don’t know are available. Had it not been for Carter, I would’ve given up on my home search long ago...I now consider him a good friend and my go-to resource for all things real estate." - Fen

His results-driven approach, analytical background, and genuine nature gives his clients an advantage in maximizing their return on investment.

Since calling San Francisco home for the past five years, Carter has gotten to know each neighborhood intimately, a critical component in matching buyers with their dream home. During his youth, he had the good fortune to experience living in many different parts of the country.

He is able to build a strong rapport with anyone he meets and enjoys connecting with others with different or diverse backgrounds from his own. Carter prides himself on maintaining authentic communication with everyone he interacts with, knowing well that transparency is paramount to building successful and lasting relationships.

Carter earned his bachelor's degree in Business Management from San Francisco State. As a student, he began working for a tech startup called Rinse. He quickly became an integral team member and respected leader within the organization. Although he loved his role as Operations Manager and helping to build Rinse into the industry leader in dry clean & laundry delivery service, he could not ignore his passion for real estate investment and development. Carter has carried these same management skills with him in real estate, and never allows his clients to make a decision he wouldn't feel comfortable making himself. His entire business is centered around building extreme trust and rapport with his customers. He goes above and beyond his job as a fiduciary to build lifelong relationships.

His social footprint expands far beyond the San Francisco Bay Area, Carter has a wealth of connections across the world to help make sure you're working with the best buyers and sellers in the market. His relentless perseverance, grit, and go-getter attitude help him negotiate the best sale for his clients and push deals through the finish line. As a fellow investor himself, Carter has a knack for seeking out the best opportunities and is able to align your investment strategy with specific neighborhoods and property types.

When not in the office, Carter leads a very active lifestyle. As an avid outdoorsman, he enjoys playing basketball, hiking with his dog Shiloh, or running along the beautiful California coast. He also loves to travel when he can and plans on visiting every country in the world.
