Carolyn Gwynn did an outstanding job finding a home for us during an unpredictable and fast paced time in the market place. We moved to the San Ramon/Danville area from Dallas Texas and thankfully a good friend from graduate school referred us to Carolyn. Carolyn is easy to communicate with, professional, an expert in real… estate and an overall pleasure to work with. Carolyn has a unique, keen sense of what’s needed to make a transaction work and was able to guide us in a way that accomplished all of our goals and still obtain the home we wanted. It was Carolyn’s knowledge, experience and thoroughness that gave us our beautiful home. You will most definitely want Carolyn to be your Realtor whether you are buying or selling your home. We highly recommend Carolyn Gwynn. She is the best of the best. Read more “Carolyn Gwynn did an outstanding job”
If we could give Carolyn 100 stars we would. As many know, once you decide to buy and/or sell a home, you quickly start to spend a lot of time with your realtor. After several false starts with a handful of realtors in San Francisco and the East Bay, we were put in touch with… Carolyn. We were in the process of looking for a house to purchase and were overwhelmed by the process as well as by Bay Area real estate in general. Enter Carolyn, who was the mentor, coach, confidante, partner, and friend we needed. She is whip smart and was able to work with my quantitative, detail-driven husband with patience and thoughtfulness. She knew when to push us along and when to step back. We never felt pressured or uncomfortable. She was unflappable in navigating a somewhat stressful and ongoing negotiation process so that we ultimately were able to purchase the home of our dreams. She went above and beyond the call of duty 100 times. She’s proactive, uber-responsive, detail-oriented, thoughtful, and a master at managing a myriad of personalities. She made us feel like we were her only client when I’m sure she had many more just as needy as we were. We cannot say enough amazing things about her. In sum, you know you’ve found a good realtor when you are literally sad the home-buying process is over because you will miss your time together! She’s that good. She made a scary and daunting process not only tenable, but enjoyable. Note: While Carolyn is based in Danville/Alamo, she was an expert as we looked at homes all over the East Bay (including Alameda, Oakland, Piedmont, Orinda, and Lafayette). We ultimately ended up buying in Orinda. Read more “If we could give Carolyn 100 stars we would”
Carolyn is beyond brilliant! Simply put, she is the most competent and detail-oriented, the most proactive and responsive, and the most considerate and patient real estate agent we have ever worked with, let alone some cultural and language gap/oddities that she’d have to deal with… … Most agent shied away after a few fruitless rounds… of showing and sporadic communication, but not Carolyn, she took it head-on as challenge… We worked together better and better, closer and closer, as she made significant effort in trying to understand us, our needs/desires and the reason behind them… Furthermore, operational-wise, Carolyn’s impressive attention to detail, time and task management skills and abilities to negotiate and to be assertive when needed really made the very quick escrow (our own choice) seamless and very productive…. Long story short, we have since moved in, highly satisfied and very very happy. Read more “Long story short, we have since moved in, highly satisfied and very very happy”

She really took the time to understand what was important to us in what we were looking for, and did an extremely thorough job in previewing everything in the marketplace … She also went above and beyond what many realtors would do in taking care of us, right down to stepping in to take care… of removing the previous owners’ junk that they should have cleared out themselves. She is truly committed to making every step of the process as easy and enjoyable as possible for her clients. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Read more “Carolyn was a godsend…”

There is so much to thank you for…your invaluable guidance, support, encouragement, honesty and knowledge during the purchase of our new home, the marketing of our former home, and the complete change of our life. It has meant more to us than we can adequately express.
From the moment I met Carolyn Gwynn I was completely at ease. Carolyn is professional and knowledgeable as well as being warm, patient and attentive. Selling my home as a single woman I didn’t have a partner to bounce thoughts off of during the preparation and selling process. Carolyn filled that need for me; always… available to answer questions and bounce ideas off of. She was mindful of my budget for getting my home ‘showcase ready’, spent ample time with me reviewing and refining decisions, and was able to provide me with the names of vendors and experts when needed. She was thorough in presenting comps to help me set a price that would attract buyers. And she was spot on in her recommendations. My house received multiple offers within the first week and was sold at a price over asking. The entire sales experience was easier because of Carolyn’s business acumen and calm demeanor. Never once did I feel that I was not in superb, competent hands. Would I work with Carolyn again? In a heartbeat!! Would I recommend Carolyn to others looking for a realtor? Without a moment’s hesitation. She is the consummate professional, with fine attention to detail that made me feel well cared for every step of the way. Thank you, Carolyn!
