    Helping Transitions Go Smoothly...Thank you so much for the lunch on moving day. It was so helpful and thoughtful of you and really meant a lot to us. You were a dream to work with for selling our house. It was a long journey for us to start thinking about moving and then be where we are today. It went a lot more smoothly because of you.  Jerry and Sharron Renfroe
    Short Sale Successes...I'd like to thank Carrie Montellano for selling my home and making the transaction so smooth and efficient. I was a first time home seller and she helped ensure I was comfortable with the process by taking the time to explain what to expect and answer all my questions (especially since the sale was short sale)...She is very knowledgeable about Orange County areas, is quick to follow up and is so easy to work with. I feel I've made a friend whom I'd recommend to anyone needing her knowledge, thoroughness and service.  Aleece Noujaim  
     Time Saved...Carrie,  don't hesitate to send us properties as we are still undecided, and I want you to know that your follow through is unprecedented by any realtor I have ever dealt with.  I know this task is time consuming but it sure puts you at the top of someone's mind when it comes to this need or desired home.  All the Best                     Jim Johnson   
    Great Relationship and Communication  Thank you for making this tough experience a good one. We totally trusted you and will also miss talking to you!   Thanks for everything!  Sara and Terry
    Seller Kudos......With feedback like this and your constant communication, just reassures me that I made the correct decision on who I choose to help me sale/lease my home.  I am so very impressed!  Thank you Greg
    Relocation Made Easy   Last year I was presented with an opportunity to relocate from Orange County to Seattle for a new job. It was an exciting prospect but I was very concerned about selling my condo in a depressed real estate market. I interviewed several well regarded and experienced real estate agents. Ultimately I decided to work with Carrie Montellano. It was the best real estate decision I ever made. Carrie is a great communicator and a creative marketer. She developed a very attractive web posting pictures and text of my home. When potential buyers came for a viewing Carrie was always available and very enthusiastic. In a depressed real estate market Carrie created a bidding competition for my condo and sold it in nine days for more than the listing price! I would recommend Carrie to anyone buying or selling real estate with full confidence.   --Andrew Moskowitz, Seattle, WA
