She is extremely knowledgeable of the region and  experienced with high end transactions. She nailed every detail of the process and made it seem effortless. We recommend her without reservation!

Carol is an outstanding Realtor! First she listened and took the time to understand what we were looking for, and then thoughtfully, and yet determined pointed out possible properties. Her approach enabled us to quickly get a good overview of the market, then make a decision.
Carol is a pure pleasure to work with. She is straightforward, has patience, and always puts the customer first. When the first property we put an offer on did not work out for us as we progressed through due diligence, she searched for new options, without hesitation. She clearly understood our concerns, and honored them immediately. It can be stressful to buy a home. Not with Carol’s guidance, advice and professional experience. She is just excellent, always stays calm, and yet was determined to deliver the home we were looking for. She always had a solution, a way forward, no matter what the challenge was. She has a broad and wide network, and can quickly recommend a contact that can help. She managed through the process in an efficient manner, always communicating, always keeping us informed. Carol is very business savvy, gives great advice and negotiates effectively. We would recommend her anytime.
We are so happy, as we found our dream home. Thank you Carol!

Carol Sebastiani is a world-class Realtor! My wife and I have moved many times across all parts of the country; Carol is simply the best realtor we have ever dealt with. She patiently worked with us to find our perfect home and than stayed with us through the entire process, including our actual relocation. Since than she helped us find an investment property and has counseled us on other real estate issues. I have recommended Carol to family and friends all of whom have been thrilled with her performance! Knowledgeable, driven, understanding, thorough and fun; that’s Carol.

Having worked with a number of realtors over the years, I can honestly say Carol is, by far, the most outstanding partner we’ve had in real estate transactions. Aside from her deep knowledge of the markets, her approach to the business is what sets her apart. It never took Carol more than about 5 minutes to answer one of our emails or texts. She took a very realistic, but aggressive approach to our negotiations with the seller, which resulted in a good-value purchase price for us. Carol brings a rare combination of intellect and “street smarts” — she offered clever, nuanced strategies at every decision point along the way. Lastly, we appreciated her listening skills and her genuine desire to help us reach an outcome we felt great about. We hope we are in a position to use Carol many times again in the future.

Carol Sebastiani found us our dream Sonoma wine country home. She is by far the best Realtor we’ve ever worked with. Carol knew exactly what we wanted and helped us with everything.

I give my highest recommendation to Carol Sebastiani and have referred her to friends and family as the only Realtor to work with in wine country. She was able to sell my house before it went on the market and sold my brother-in-law’s house in a week! Her knowledge of the market helped us set a realistic selling price and her years of experience showed in how smoothly we transacted. She is an absolute PRO!

Carol is superb. She listened closely to really understand what we were looking for and diligently (and patiently) scoured the market to find the perfect property. At no point did we ever feel pressured or anything but her most important client. She is absolutely the best.

Carol was a stellar agent and worked with us through all of the details and nuances of a challenging purchase. The property was our first vacation property purchase and is on well and septic and an older property; all reasons that had us concerned. She advised us of all the options and gave us the information we needed to make educated decisions. She knows the market extremely well and has a real down to earth and approachable personality with just the right amount of grit and tenacity mixed in.

Her support staff (Charlie) was excellent and responsive and added an extra layer of calm and professionalism to the whole process.

We were on an extremely tight turn around for the closing and had to make many decisions very quickly. Carol and Charlie guided us through the process very smoothly. We needed to secure a variety of professional contractors for inspections and ultimately repairs and renovations. Her network of real estate associated vendors were all top notch, responsive and very professional.

We’ve been enjoying our getaway spot now for half a year and are very happy she was there with us to make this dream come true!
