Carin Lundahl - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Dear Mr.

Malesh, Two months ago we were served so well by one of your representatives, we felt we had to bring her to your attention. Her name is Carin. My wife and I had heard one horror story after another about being badly represented by realtors much of our adult life. Carin distiguished herself from the "pack" by being willing to do a little homework for us and make it convenient for us. While I am no stranger to transacting business on the net, Carin's willingness to get the information for us plus temper it with her insight caused all our anxieties to disappear. She went out of her way to get us help with a superb loan broker as well. Consistently throughout the process she was always willing to do the little extras. I do not believe we could have gotten better service from having a devoted relative take care of us. We now go out of our way to recommend her and place her business card with potential buyers. Privately, we hope to refer $1,000,000 in sales to Carin within the year. She made the trauma of buying a first home a delight. Mr. and Mrs. Bruce A., Fountain Valley  

With todays quick changing market conditions I needed a full service marketing expert to represent me in a real estate transaction.

  Carin was just that person, with expertise in all facets of buying or selling a home.  What a positive pleasure to work with her and get the job done. Thanks Ron and Susan, Long Beach  

I appreciate your sound advice; hard work and patience while helping me buy my new home.

I never felt like just another paycheck, but you truly listened and assisted me in exploring all my options. I have already referred you to friends, confident you'll take great care to find them their next home. Thomas A., Garden Grove  

Dear Mr.

Sire: We recently had the pleasure of selling and purchasing a house using the services of Carin Lundahl, who works out of your office. We use the word "pleasure" intentionally, as Carin made what could have been a most frustrating experience, given today's market, into one we look back upon with happiness and gratitude.   We first put our house in Fountain Valley on the market in January, and put a bid on a house at the same time. Carin worked closely with us and gave us great advice and guidance during the process. Unfortunately, during that process, the market began to change; bidders on our house turned out not to be serious, and after a period of time, we had to cancel escrow on the house we were purchasing, and eventually took our home off the market. The experience was emotionally draining for us, and Carin was always supportive, and understanding to our decision at that time.   After two months of sitting out and regrouping, we re-entered the market armed with a fresh attitude and Carin's energy; we are pleased to say that last month we not only closed the sale of our house, but on the purchase of the house we had originally wanted some eight months ago - at a net savings compared to the price levels existing at that time. We now are settled happily in our new house, and owe that to Carin, who was persistent in her efforts, but always respectful of our desires and our state of mind. She is a rarity in today's business world - a true professional who sincerely cares about her clients, not just a potential income, but as real individuals.   We trust you are aware that you have such a person working in your office, but we just wanted to share our thoughts and feelings with you. Anybody we know who will ever be looking to buy and/or sell their house, you can rest assured we will refer Carin's way. Gary and Laurie O., Fountain Valley  

Your help and support made this process so much easier.

Thank you for helping us find someplace that went above and beyond our expectations! Sherly and Nathan, Bellflower

Great thanks!

Jeff just finished his residency and we plan 4-6 years in this house. So keep in touch because we would 100% want your help again, you were such a godsend. I intend to write a letter of recommendation that you can show people. You probably have like 1500 of them! Tabbie and Jeff N., Fountain Valley  

Carin is a PROFESSIONAL.

Smart, consistent, determined, honest. She has helped me purchase 2 properties over the course of 15 years and both were executed flawlessly.

Marieanne Burley

We had a great experience working with Carin.

She is a dedicated professional, honest, patient and personable and she truly knows her business. She followed through and kept us informed of what was happening each step of the way. She was always available to answer our questions and from our first meeting we felt we could trust her to have our best interest at heart. Josh K. and Denise F., Desert Hot Springs  

Just wanted to thank you again for all your hard work in finding and assisting me in buying my first townhouse!

It takes many different real estate professionals working together to acquire real estate in Orange County. Without your constant monitoring of each professional's progress, I truely believe I would not own my townhouse today. It was extremely easy to work with you as you were always there. I knew the house search was being taken care of as you constantly updated me on the progress through both emails and voicemails. I appreciate your dedication. Thank you so much for your hard work. Erik H., Costa Mesa

Carin, we really appreciate all that you have done to help us purchase our first home.

You went beyond the call of duty. I feel like we've become friends! Thank you! Stacy and Brad, Huntington Beach  

Dear Ms.

Cardullo, In addition to the review we placed on Zillow, I would like to add that, after my initial phone call to Carin Lundahl, whose warmth, knowledge and passion for helping people were, immediately, apparent, there was a lengthy period in which my husband and I wavered as to whether we thought we wanted to sell our condo rental at Bixby Village. A long term tenant and flood to our unit, in addition to us being out of town owners, were complicating factors. Carin never pressured us to sell but assisted us past the flood with her wisdom and reassurance and continued to keep us updated on the market. What a wonderful feeling it was to know that, whether or not we ever listed our property, Carin's first priority would always be what was best for us. Carin was immensely helpful in choosing the timing for our listing and pricing it perfectly. We were so impressed with how she negotiated for us when offers came in. She was a fierce advocate, protecting us from adverse contractual contingencies and gaining concessions for us. Her hard work, dedication and integrity over the years earned her the respect and admiration of buyers' agents, as well as the buyers, themselves. Carin was a dynamo in employing total marketing efforts, following up with us and pouring hours of her time and energy into accomplishing a hugely successful sale and close. We were amazed at her grace and finesse at every turn and, especially. how she inspired our tenant to release us from the bonds of the long term lease we had with him to allow for a, practically, miraculous result. We would like to mention, also, that Carin's colleague, Miriam Mann, took care of our listing while Carin had to be away on personal business. Miriam, too, is a delight, and kept us updated and, like Carin, was very encouraging at a time when we were facing some daunting challenges up here on the Monterey Peninsula. We can see why Carin and Miriam are close friends. There is one more comment we would like to make: Talented agents like Carin and Miriam are very selective about the real estate firms with which they associate. These two agents speak volumes for the excellence of First Team Real Estate, Inc. Thank you for "loaning" two of your incredible agents to us. What Carin accomplished for us has been a major and priceless step toward financial security for my husband and me and, to borrow, in essence, what another ultra-satisfied client reported on Zillow, Carin seems "... like a treasured friend to us" over and above being an unparalleled real estate agent. Blessings and gratitude to you, Carin and Miriam and your outstanding company, Hershel and Andrea Harrod

Hershel and Andrea Harrod

Thank you so much for the card, the lucky tree, the cute tiger, and especially all of your help.

  There are so many thanks for all the things that you have done for us, for our family.  Xuan and I are very appreciated.  Without your help, we will not be able to get this house, nothing will happen.  Now, the kids have a place to live, a nice back yard to play, and a good school to go to.  I like your work, very aggressive and very professional.  I would highly refer you to any one. Xuan and I wish you and your family a lot of good health, happiness, and prosperity.  We wish you have a great trip on your vacation to visit your family back home.  May God bless you and your family. Hien Nguyen and Xuan Ho, Garden Grove  

Once again Carin as proven to remain a knowledgable and trustworthy realtor who always has her clients' interests at heart.

Carin did an amazing job for us, she guided us though the process of selling 2 homes and buying our new home/ Thee were so many moving pieces and she mastered them and made sure none o the pieces were dropped.

She if professional, knowledgeable and very fun to work with. We would use her services again (although we are now in our dream home). Hopefully you will also choose here so you can know how easy and enjoyable a difficult process can be. THANK YOU CARIN!!

Gary Payne

Carin has been absolutely wonderful to work with during our first house hunting process in the Orange County.

She made it so easy, stress-free, and actually enjoyable! This was both mine and my husbands first time being a house, we had no idea what this process consisted of except the horrible stories we heard from friends and family. But our experience was far far from that, all thanks to Carin! She was very knowledgeable with the current market rate, she always gave us her honest opinion, and we valued her opinion very high! I can not say enough nice things about Carin and her expertise! She is purely dedicated to her work, and no matter when or where, she will be there ready to show you a house! She is so thorough when it comes down to writing an offer, and spent over 2 hours explaining every single detail on the contract in which I loved, making me feel 100% comfortable in signing the documents. Thank you so much for helping us find our dream home!!

Kishan and Beenal Patel

Carin is the best Realtor in Orange County, hands down.

She was AMAZING every step of the way. We love Carin and would recommend her to anyone. My wife and I have worked with her on three different transactions. We wouldn't even think of contacting anyone else.

Your help and patience have been invaluable to us. Thank you for making it easy and almost painless! Brian and Kimber G., Long Beach

Thanks for going out of your way!

We appreciate everything you do - selling the condo was a breeze for us! Deb and Phillip C. , Huntington Beach  

I met Carin as she was walking around my neighborhood.

We talked for awhile, I liked what she had to say and I found her ver friendly and knowledgable. She helped me decide on the price I should sell at, and it sold for that price, mimusic the fix up cost. I was very pleased with the sake and her performance. I'd recommend her to any of my friends who are thinking of selling or buying. Yours, George Pugh
