“We called Carey after my father passed away this last Christmas. We were so relieved to find a realtor who was so professional and kept us very informed of all the details even though we lived far away. We were shocked at how high of a price we got for our Menlo Park home and feel Carey’s negotiating skills had a lot to do with that.”                                 --Paul and Linda Kawasaki

"I was struggling with cancer and did not have the energy or the money to get the house ready to sell. I had a realtor knock on my door who gave me an all cash offer.  I called Carey and asked her what to do. She said the offer was way too low. Carey ended up selling my house for over $100,000 more than what that realtor offered, and she negotiated that I would get four free months rent back. That meant I had the money to buy my next home and four months to move my stuff. With limited energy, this extra time was a Godsend. I can't thank her enough. Now I live close to my daughters in a home that is totally paid for." -- Rocky Rhoades

After years of frustration trying to purchase a house in the Bay Area, we met Carey, who helped our long awaited dream of owning a home come true! She looked out for our best interest like no other agent we met before, and from day 1 she was always encouraging and positive about our search. When we found the right place, she jumped on the opportunity like this house was to be her own. We got to see our house a day before the open house, and her negotiation skills got the selling agent to agree to cancel the upcoming open house and consider our offer, which she wrote in detail for hours on the same day. We saw the house, right after we left, once we knew this was the one we wanted the most. Not a second was wasted! For a house being sold "as is", she managed to get the seller to sign the offer paying for multiple repairs, which amounted to around $20K! She was also an amazing help when it came to recommendations for inspections and had contacts working with bank mortgage loans, to provide us the best options in everything! This was our first time buying a house and she helped drain most of the stress away from the process. We had met and worked with multiple agents before, who always had a negative view on our opportunity to buy vs. the market in this area. Not Carey! She was ruthless helping us find the right thing, and not allowing us to settle for less (as other agents had done to us). The day we found our home, we looked at houses with her from morning until late afternoon, along with a 7 month old baby, and by late night we found out the seller was considering our offer. Amazing! On top of her skills as an agent, we appreciated to be treated like real human beings, and not like just another client in a list, especially when our budget might not have been as high as some of her other clients. She is a pleasure to work with, has a great sense of humor, and knows how to be realistic and positive at the same time. We recommend Carey to everyone we know, especially if this is your first time buying a home! If we ever buy another house, or sell ours, we will definitely be working with her again."       -- Karen & James Isaacs

"I called Carey to sell my mother’s house after she passed away. I could not have picked a better Realtor. Carey was professional, compassionate, helped us pay attention to details, and most of all, I am convinced, got us the highest possible price for our home. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a Realtor. Her negotiating skills are excellent!             -- Patty Hora

"We are writing to say how impressed we are with Carey Mitchell. Not only was she completely professional and answered our endless list of questions, but she turned out to be an incredibly ethical person. In the future, we would not hesitant to call her first for our real estate needs." -- Jacqueline and Jim Phillips

"I can't believe how high of a price we got. I am very happy." -- Sam and Akiyo Toba

Carey's personality immediately told me she was the right realtor to sell my home. She genuinely cared about me, and worked like a dog to get multiple offers. She got a MUCH higher price than I expected for the home, beyond what I could have imagined. I would recommend her without question to anyone looking for a class act. Plus, her signs were a huge hit!!" -- Bill Hammer

"We are so thrilled that Carey worked with us. We got the house on the first try, all because of Carey. We are more than happy to recommend her to our friends. She was attentive to all our needs, available when we needed her and was a huge help."                                     -- Geoff and Michele Phelps

"My home was about to be auctioned off and I would get no money. Carey stopped the auction got an all cash buyer and I walked away with a significant profit. I can't thank her enough. Now I have money to live on and am so relieved. I can't believe how hard she worked to help me." -- Lola, 86 years old

"Carey definitely cares about her clients. She sold our home for a very high price and we have become such good friends she is visiting us for Easter this year. My kids LOVE her."    -- Linda LeSeur
