For Carla Giustino
We initially tried to sell our house at 4 Lagoon Court ourselves and did not have any luck, that is when Carla came to our rescue. I have very high standards from a real estate agent and for customer service. Carla exceeded our expectations on all levels. She is a true pro. She is very attentive, returned all emails and calls promptly and stayed on top of everything. She brought our buyer to us and the transaction was totally smooth and stress free. She was very good about hearing our needs and got us the best price we could have gotten. I had other agents tell me our house should have been priced way lower than what she sold it for but she believed in the uniqueness of our home and got us the exact price we wanted. She has set a number of records in our neighborhood, our house included. I highly recommend her and would use her for my next purchase or sale without question.
Carla is the best! Her advice and specific performance with every issue and challenge was terrific. For example, other agents we interviewed claimed that advertising in the San Francisco Chronicle was a waste of time and money. But contrary to such advice, Carla placed an ad in the San Francisco Chronicle which produced the best three competing offers. The hot seller’s market drew dozens of interested buyers but all three of the final pre-approved buyers who bid on the property resulted from Carla’s ad in the Chronicle.
The other agent that we almost signed with advised that staging was a waste of money, but not Carla who engaged a terrific stager who had the job done with only three days’ notice, which really influenced the selling price. These are just two specific decisions that made Carla so great. Over the twenty years that Carla has been an agent she has earned the respect and works well with the complexities of inspections and title company processes. Carla is Personable, Efficient, Devoted and has great warmth and personal integrity.

Carla was everything you would want in an agent, taking the time to educate me about the specifics of the Mill Valley area, as well as taking me to homes that fit my criteria to make the most efficient use of both my time and hers. She was also a very good advocate when it came to discussing and working through the details of offers/counter offers, etc. All of this was done easily in a remote fashion (I was living in So Cal and relocating to No Cal). I always had a very strong sense that she was watching my back and protecting my interests, and gave me invaluable recommendations for contractors/inspectors/etc. I highly recommend Carla to represent you when purchasing real estate!
It is with pleasure that we provide this reference/testimonial for Carla Giustino. We met her to invest in some properties in Marin and San Francisco. Since the first day, it has been a wonderful journey … she is professional, very efficient and delivering a high quality service every time without fail. Her recommendations are always within our budget and expectations, she has all the qualities that someone looks for when selecting a top notch real estate agent, she knows the market very well and very dedicated to get the result done. We are based overseas and she does not mind to stay up late to communicate with us and by the way, she is also very accessible and is always available to answer

By far the most professional and more importantly the most trusting and credible real estate professional I have met or dealt with in 25 years. Very hard working and displayed an exceptional talent for detail which is so important in business transactions. I will work with Carla again and also pass on her name to my trusted friends as she made the whole process simple, and a pleasure. I wish all brokers had her skills and personality and professionalism.
I have worked with Carla Giustino twice and found both experiences to be excellent. The first was when I relocated my business headquarters to Marin. I was seeking property that had a view and a very private, tranquil setting. Carla delivered everything I wanted and more with the second home she showed me. Perched on a mountain top with 360 degree views, it was beyond spectacular. Carla immediately understood my vision and my needs and took only days to find the perfect home for me. Carla's passion for real estate, professionalism, and her genuine personality made both experiences very enjoyable. I highly recommend working with Carla.
Carla Giustino found and helped me secure my first home purchase several years ago. I love the property and Carla was instrumental in making the deal happen even though there were several challenges. I still live there and it has gone up in value exponentially. Since then Carla has been at my beck and call whenever I have needed advice or support regarding real estate. I now own three properties in California and my net worth has gone up nicely. I cannot recommend Carla more highly and encourage you to consider her services. She has outstanding experience, a great work ethic and an absolute talent for this industry.
Not only did Carla Giustino find me my dream home, she sold my home in the hills, which was not an easy task. From start to finish, her professionalism and years of experience selling in Marin County made the process of selling and buying during one of the most difficult periods in real estate history so much less harrowing. After selling my home in Larkspur, she found me the deal of a lifetime with a short sale in San Rafael and stuck with me during the whole process. I would not hesitate to recommend Carla Giustino to anyone interested in buying or selling.
