Caroline dinsmore top real estate expert

1. Proven Track Record

Together we’ve successfully sold hundreds of homes which means we understand the market dynamics and strategies to get our seller’s homes sold for the highest possible price with the best possible terms in any market.  Our buyers benefit from our very high acceptance rate.  Our buyers rarely write more than 3 offers.

2. Local expertise

Each realtor on our team was born and raised on the Peninsula.  We know every area, neighborhood, street and block like the back of our hand.   

3. Advocacy and Education

We are relentless in our pursuit of the best deal for you, as a buyer or a seller.  We will always ensure that your interests and investment are protected. That may even mean telling you when to walk away from an overvalued property or to wait to sell your home to get the best ROI.

4. Powerful network

We use our powerful local and national network to bring qualified buyers to our seller’s homes, well before any open house.  We have access to listings before they’re available to the general public, giving our buyers a clear advantage.
