When I first spoke with Carol about selling my house in Davis, I explained that I valued highly the great knowledge of real estate she has acquired in her career. I feel that I got the full benefit of that knowledge. At numerous points, Carol explained things to me, outlined possible courses of action, and provided excellent recommendations. I cannot imagine doing a transaction of this importance and complexity without a comparably knowledgeable agent.
Carol has helped us buy and sell several houses over the years. Each time, Carol has exceeded our expectations. Carol knows how to market aggressively and sell a house -- whether it's a buyer's market or a seller's market. Carol also knows how to help buyers find a home by learning in detail their lifestyle and tastes before selecting potential homes to tour.
Carol does an excellent job of solving the problems that inevitably crop up during the escrow period when buyers need to secure financing and sellers often need to take care of repairs. Carol is effective, because she knows how to tackle issues quickly, and she has a broad network of contacts among mortgage bankers and brokers, home repair contractors, inspection specialists, and others who can assist to ensure a successful and on time completion of the sale/purchase.
We would highly recommend Carol Coder to anyone thinking about buying or selling a home.
Carol Coder is one of the best real estate agents I've ever worked with. She was listing a property for me which was far from my home and thus difficult for me to manage. The sale was not a particularly lucrative one for her. However, she handled every detail of making sure the property had curb appeal and passed all inspections, even though we started with some challenges (like mold). She worked very hard, didn't just sit and wait for offers to come in. I wish she could list all my properties!!
Since this was my third home purchase (but my first in Davis), I went into the home-buying process assuming I knew what was going to happen. Instead, I was unbelievably pleasantly surprised by the level of care and coordination Carol put into my purchase. She made me feel like I was her only client. She listened incredibly closely to what was "behind my words" and helped frame options for me based on her 30+ years of experience in this market. She was on top of every part of the transaction-coordinating inspectors, disclosures, communicating with the lender and responding immediately to my emails, calls or texts. I felt so supported and confident through a process that ended up being much more complicated than I'd anticipated. If you work with Carol Coder, you can have complete confidence that every part of your purchase is being carefully shepherded by someone who is a friend, a consummate professional and incredibly passionate about her work. Highly, highly, highly recommend (and I'm picky)!
I want to convey my personal thank you for your kind efforts in the sale of my mother's house. I know it had its challenges and you are a powerhouse when it comes to dealing with family foibles. I wish I could express how grateful I am to you for your patience and understanding while we were trying to find our way through this process. You are very talented in your profession.
