Testimonials

Hear why Carrie Benuska is considered one of the top Pasadena realtors:

Choosing an outstanding Residential Realtor in the active Greater Pasadena real estate market is of supreme importance.  After facing the negative effects of the national financial crisis, Greater Pasadena real estate has been on the rebound.  The market is brisk, competitive, and complex.  You will need a wise advisor to help you through the process each step of the way.

Buying or selling a home is also an emotional process that deserves the utmost of respect.  For many of us, our home is our biggest investment and our favorite place on earth.  The sales process can be filled with stress and strain, but it leads to big rewards.  You deserve an advocate who has your best interests at heart, works hard, and never gives up.

This is why others have enjoyed the process of working with Carrie Benuska:


The entire experience was highly professional.

We could not have been more pleased with Carrie’s responsiveness to all of our concerns and with the spectacular result in the sale of our home. From the time we signed the listing to the date we opened escrow was a mere 15 days. The marketing of our home was next to perfect. Carrie gave very useful advice on preparing our home to be shown. The open house process was flawless and was completed with a minimum of disruption to our daily lives. Carries guided us through the tricky process of considering multiple offers and selecting the perfect young couple to purchase our home. The entire experience was highly professional.

Fred – San Gabriel

We got almost 20% more than our asking price!

Carrie was fantastic! Time came to sell my mother’s home and Carrie was recommended to us, couldn’t have been a better referral. She was easy to work with, great and frequent communications and we got almost 20% more than our asking price! Selling a home is not something I do on daily basis, like hardly ever, and so I followed most of Carrie’s recommendations with regards to updating the interior/exterior of the home along with staging. Well, results speak for themselves and the family home was sold for more that expected and in an extremely short time frame. Carrie knew how to market the house to create maximum buzz and excitement leading to multiple offers and entering into escrow less than a week after listing. I would without hesitation do business again with Carrie and have already recommended her to friends.

Mark – San Marino

Real Estate Agent Extraordinaire!

Real Estate Agent Extraordinaire! We were out of town buyers and needed someone with inside expertise. My husband recalled her column in the local San Marino newspaper and said let’s try her! Responsive, personal, tireless, determined but mostly, wise. We endured a couple of disappointments and due to her intuitive and honest opinions of our circumstances, we now have the perfect home for us! Carrie, we are forever grateful for your professional care and personal touch.

Sheree – Sacramento

We could not have done it without her expertise and local knowledge.

Carrie helped our family look for and FIND the perfect home! She took the time to share with us specific homes in specific neighborhoods that she knew we would find attractive because she took to listen to EXACTLY what we were looking for. She was patient when we had troubles with our lender and actually even gave us a few other options (although it ultimately became unnecessary) to procure our loan. We could not have done it wihtout her expertise and local knowledge.

Sean – San Gabriel

She is a joy to work with. We highly recommend her.

Shane – Los Angeles

Carrie is very responsive, helpful, and has a great personality.

Carrie helped me and my husband find our first home in Los Angeles. We had just moved back from New York, and were looking to buy a home. We looked all over the LA area. West LA, Miracle Mile, and then Downtown LA. She was very helpful and knowledgable about all the area. She ended up finding us a beautiful brand new loft in Downtown LA that we fell in love with.

Carrie is very responsive, helpful, and has a great personality. It was so fun to work with her. I would really recommend working with Carrie, whether it’s to sell your home or if you need to buy. She’ll listen to what you want and not stop until you are happy. She even sent us a bottle of Champagne after we closed. So thoughful!

Stella – Los Angeles

I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Carrie was amazing at helping us (finally) get a wonderful house. Our purchase was contingent on the sale of our house – which almost never happens anymore. She was a champion at negotiating our deal and was incredible at managing the timing of both our purchase and sale. She was prompt at getting signatures and very responsive in her communication. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Cynthia – San Gabriel
