Carol took the time to understand my goals and her strategy, which gained me $500,000 over previous offers. I value Carol’s local real estate knowledge and perspective.

Hands down one of the most amazing realtors my husband and I have ever worked with. We have made several real estate investments over the years and I can honestly say Carol’s level of expertise and professionalism was supreme! She was not interested in just selling us “any” house but made certain we...

Not only did Carol take the time to understand our unique requirements, she was able to negotiate through some very difficult logistics issues to get us the house we wanted on terms that were better than we imagined possible.

We searched for the perfect home for 9 months. We found Carol about 6 months into the process and she led us directly to the home of our dreams. She continues to be a resource and I can’t say enough good things.

Carol is such a great agent to work with… we bought our first home last year with her help & she had worked with us for years before that till we found our dream home. She was very patient, active and knowledgable… I definitely recommend her as an agent to hire to help sell/buy your next property.

I could not have hoped to work with as friendly, knowledgeable or patient an agent. Carol was only concerned with my best interests throughout the entire process, and really what more could you ask for in a Realtor? Thanks so much Carol!

We had 3 main areas to explore and a challenging list of requirements. Carol broke it down into manageable pieces, so we looked at one area at a time until we understood the options there and could move on. We ended up buying a beautiful, large, custom home in San Juan Capistrano that fulfilled our...

Carol Lee is by far the best realtor in Orange County. She has great business savvy to understand market trends. But she also has a rare talent in listening. If you tell her what you want, she’ll make it happen! It is a joy to work with such a talented and lovely woman.
