Highly knowledgeable and experienced. Provided guidance and counsel and researched numerous aspects of prospective purchases. Tirelessly searched for homes for us to purchase, showed us a number of properties, and finally represented us in the purchase of our home.


I have worked with Carol for close to a year to find my perfect dream home. She found many beautiful homes in my price range. She showed me many different types of homes so that I have a very good understanding of the real estate market in the area. I was very picky since this was to be my retirement home, and Carol listened carefully to all my “must haves”, “nice to haves” and “definitely don’t wants” and kept showing me houses that came closer and closer to my dream. Carol hung in there with me through the good times and bad times, and never stopped finding homes to show me. Eventually, Carol showed me and helped me buy my dream home in Portola. Even after the sale closed and the house was mine, she continued to support me with advice on the road, heating, and service people in the area. I now consider Carol a friend, and anyone who is looking to purchase a home will be lucky and feel happy to work with Carol. She’s the best!

Carol Murray was a true pleasure for us to work with regarding the sale of this home. She was very committed to us, followed through on every request and used good business judgement based off her experiences. Our home was somewhat of a challenge, as we live over 1000 miles from the location of the home that we sold. Carol could have easily put us at the bottom of her list, but she did not. I have no doubt she treats everyone the same and that is with the utmost respect for her clients and makes everyone a top priority. We would definitely recommend Carol and would use her again if an opportunity came up. Thanks to Carol, she made our experience very enjoyable and valuable!

Carol Murray has been our real estate agent for two properties here in Portola, CA. In late 2009 she represented us in the purchase of our home and was our agent again in late 2010 for the purchase of a undeveloped lot. Carol was efficient and effective in both transactions. The key to our relationship has been rooted in her attitude and dedication toward her job. In both transactions, we ran into several minor problems and although they seemed larger to us than they were, Carol never let us think that these could not be solved in a timely fashion. She never left us out on a limb or on our own; she always took the position of being in the front line of any situation and bearing the brunt of anything that came along. As she puts it, “That’s my job.” And regardless of day of the week or time of day, everything was always addressed immediately. Carol knows her business and that knowledge ranges from personal interactions to the most recent legal requirements. She provides guidance and advice based upon legal and honest research. She’ll let you know what is and isn’t in your best interest. To have an agent who is straight forward, pleasant, and trustworthy is a real blessing. She is a good friend in whom one feels comfortable with a very high level of confidence. We would not hesitate to recommend her without reservations to anyone seeking a top-notch real estate agent. She is the BEST.
