What do Clients Say?

“Residential real estate is a long-term part of our life as Max is a retired broker. We have been following Nevada County single-family residential transactions for 20 years. A number of our observations led us to contact you. You are active in our area and list houses in a range of price levels. Houses you list almost always sell more quickly than the average, they rarely fall out of escrow and sellers we know who have worked with you enjoyed the experience. Moving is one of the highest ranked stress experiences for all the people involved. Having you as our agent reduced the tension because you provided consistent feedback information, property advertisement included excellent flyers and open houses. We enjoyed getting to know you through the process and have already referred a friend to explore listing a house with you. Thank you very much for your excellent professional work which included the rapid sale, short escrow and satisfying sale price for our home.”

-Max & Ann, Grass Valley

“We are so excited to be homeowners in Grass Valley! Thank you for all your guidance, advice, and assistance from the house-hunting phase through the close of escrow. It was our good fortune, indeed, to meet you, as you were the perfect realtor for us. You made the house-hunting phase an enjoyable endeavor. We appreciate your depth of knowledge about the area and your guidance to neighborhoods that were right for us. Your wealth of information about such things as propane tanks, septic systems, and wood burning stoves was especially helpful. Being from Southern California and having no prior experience with such things, we so appreciated your input and observations as we looked at the houses for sale. Your good humor and patience also made house hunting a great experience. You made yourself available to us, spent hours and hours driving us around, and helped us analyze what we liked and didn't like about the various homes we saw without pushing us in any particular direction. Even though we looked at the new listings every day, it was you who discovered the right house for us. We will be forever grateful that you suggested we look at the Birch house. Once we were in escrow, we came to understand and appreciate what an outstanding realtor you are. You and your assistant, Devon, were in constant communication with us, you connected us with excellent service providers, and you ensured that events, such as inspections, occurred according to the necessary time frame. We have bought and sold several houses through the years and we can honestly say this was the smoothest transaction we have ever experienced. Thank you! We have told all our friends what a wonderful experience this has been. If any of them decide to move to the area - and we hope some of them do - we will gladly put them in touch with you!”

Jay & Claire, Grass Valley

“Thank you for taking me through the buying a house process. You negotiated a fair price, showed up at the house for repairs or inspections, handled the mounds of paperwork, didn’t let me panic even when I phoned on a Sunday, and gave me names of repair people that I can rely on later. I almost forgot, you also gave me the name of an insurance provider that wrote a policy on the house. And more, you came with me to the title office to make sure the paperwork was filled out correctly, you were timely in phoning me back. If you were not able to talk with me that moment, you have a wonderful assistant, Devon, that emailed important documents and encouraging notes. Devon also made herself available for any questions that came up and offered her assistance in the future. As you know, I wish I could clone you for any other house transactions in my future. Carol, you are the sweetest person and I am better for meeting you. Thank you! Look down, I’m still clinging to your ankles!”

-Teresa, Morgan Ranch Buyer

“Linda and I are delighted to describe our experiences working with you in acquiring real estate, and helping us to complete our life’s plan. Working with you, Carol has truly been a joy. With your help, we have just completed the purchase of our third property in the last three years. You have gone out of your way to make sure you have identified our interests, and used that understanding to uncover properties and opportunities that are ideal for us. Your calm and wise counseling in potentially emotional negotiation situations has kept us from making the mistakes that can cost an investor dearly. We are appreciative of your insight and guidance in negotiating with sellers to help us find win-win solutions. In addition, your understanding and insight into the development of the entire area has been an incredible resource for us. But most of all it is really a pleasure to work with a dear friend, whose professionalism and integrity are unsurpassed in this industry.”

-Dave & Linda, Grass Valley

“There are many real estate agents, but there are few who put their time, abilities, staff and concern “at the service” of the seller. I recently had to sell a home in Nevada County from a distance of 1500 miles away. That kind of situation could be problematic but it was more than a perfect choice to have Mrs. Carol Willis and her staff member, (Devon) serve our extended family. I was always updated, text messages were responded to quickly, our needs were always considered, advice was 100% correct, and in the end, we benefitted from her skill, her team, and her location to the region. She has a great grasp of the local homes, areas, building codes and more. I cannot speak more highly of Carol and the team she leads in serving you for the sale of your home or finding you the perfect home. Her team is not just Coldwell Banker, but Carol has a terrific network of handymen, inspectors, roofers, and a wide group of service industry people who will respond to her calls quickly and with care for the seller. Thank you, Carol and Devon, for being there every step of the way, and for even taking out the trash when I could not be there! We were able to get the full price we were asking for the house to benefit my mother and the closing was so smooth and we even closed early! May I recommend to you the service of Carol Willis and her team. You cannot go wrong… in fact, you cannot find a better agent to serve you!
