Amazing experience for findding the perfect home for the right price. I have been in real estate for 30 years so I know what good service, responsiveness and negotiation skills mean and if I could would bring Carissa to every home I have ever purchased, I would. All I can say is that I was completely satisfied in every aspect of the transaction! She also listed the same house I purchased and got me top dollar within 3 weeks of listing the property. Beyond thrilled!
Working with Carissa McMahon was an exceptional experience. Her professionalism far exceeded any expectations I had about the marketing and listing process. The attention to detail, the expert guidance, the creativity in making my home listing a standout was extraordinary! Carissa brings a genuine love for real estate and people to each client and home. Her vision of how best to price and market a home resulted in my property receiving multiple offers and being sold for over asking price in 4 days. This reflects the amazing service and heart Carissa puts forth for her Clients. I will always have her represent me and I HIGHLY recommend this DYNAMIC agent to everyone looking to buy or sell.
Carissa is fantastic to work with. We became remote owners during our listing time, and she was incredibly helpful going way beyond the normal services. At one point, our alarm system went off, and she actually went to check on the house and make sure it was secure. We could not have asked for more. Once Carissa listed our property, the marketing efforts were second to none. She invested in our sale and produced exceptional marketing materials including videos and printed brochures and extensive web listings. I have never seen this level of commitment from a listing agent. Beyond the typical business relationship, we felt like they truly became our friends and our guides. We have sold several homes, and this was by far our best realtor experience.
Carissa is fantastic to deal with - friendly, helpful, and always going above and beyond. We've worked with Carissa twice over the last ten years and wholeheartedly recommend her.
Carissa is the best agent in the business! She is always available, always knowledgeable, understood our problems, helped with all aspects of selling our home, and was totally ethical and honest. I could not recommend Carissa more highly!
I wholeheartedly endorse Carissa, she is an outstanding individual and unhesitatingly recommend her professional services. She consistently exhibits thorough attention to detail and unwavering commitment to deliver a truly caring and personable experience. Carissa gennuinely cares about assuring excellence and I know that I'm in good hands with her at the helm. Carissa is among the very best in real estate.
Total expert who goes far beyond expectations. Carissa is with you every step of the way at 100% at all times. So many times in selling a home, one wonders at the complications and frustrations but Carissa was the best of friend and a pro through the process even after the sale closed. Wow.
I highly recommend Carissa McMahon when you are buying or selling your next property. She listened to our needs as a seller still living in our home, helped us to stage the house but recognized that we needed to still live there. We were able to honestly discuss comparable homes and set a fair price. Because our house was very unique it required specific marketing. Carissa did a wonderful job capturing our home and property on video and pictures and provided us with wide exposure. She also did an excellent job of engaging potential buyers who walked through the door. Finally, and a critical step, Carissa ushered us through the negotiations and inspections keeping the sale moving along to the closing. On top of all this, Carissa is extremely nice, so that made the process much more pleasant.
Carissa was extremely professional and courteous throughout the whole process. Her knowledge of the business was beyond impressive. The whole experience was pleasant and stress free.
I can definitely say it's very professional in every way. there are no words that can describe all the qualities. always very clear with the necessary answers. was always available from the beginning and even after it closed.
Carissa was an absolute pleasure to work with in finding our perfect home! Not only was she very knowledgeable about the area, the houses, the market and the process, but also came with a full team of professionals ( to make the process a breeze ). She patiently answered all calls and emails, and truly cared about keeping us in the known. She negotiated and maintained all communication with the sellers making our lives much easier. I can't recommend her enough! If you are looking for a house in CT, Carissa is your gal!
Carissa was an absolute dream to work with in my experience of finding my very first home. She was extremley responsive, smart, resourceful and compassionate the entire time. She answered all the countless questions I had about real estate and the home buying process. Carissa made my home buying journey a total breeze, because of her knowledge and skills in her job. She was overall just lovely to work with and I'm fortunate to have found her. I highly reccomend her to any first-time home buyer!
What’s there to say about our experience about Carissa? Well, for starters, Carissa constantly went above and beyond for my wife and I when we first contacted her about buying our first home. She was always willing to work around our schedule and kept in constant contact with us two as the search began. She really knows how to find the perfect home, that’s for sure. After visiting multiple houses, we had finally found the “one.” When the process began in purchasing the home, it felt almost too easy. Again, Carissa was on top of her game. There was constant communication between us all, and the entire process, closing included, went as smooth as can be. I 1000% would recommend Carissa to anyone looking to buy a home, no matter the location, and I can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed.
Carissa is a God-sent angel. When relocating from out of state, she was warm, knowledgeable and very easy to talk to, always addressing our concerns and going the extra mile to make us feel comfortable. Once we were ready to move into a new home, once again she provided all the support we needed to sell our current home and buy a new one. She has an expert eye for decor, keen on details that matter in the market. She also tackled our concerns as if they were her own, clarifying any concerns or addressing issues right away. She is professional, courteous and thoughtful, which can make all the difference during a stressful period where one sells and buys a house. We love Carissa!
Carissa helped to sell and buy our new homes for over 5 years. She is extremely professional and skilled negotiator, honest and reliable, someone who is supportive and trusted during quite hectic and stressful buying / selling experience. We work with Carissa even when we are looking for a home further away from our residence, because of her valuable advice starting from the research through the closing.
Carissa, we cannot effectively express our deeply felt gratitude. 5 Watering Lane was only possible because of your extremely professional and personal expertise. We're very happy to have made a lifelong friend.
