About

EXPERIENCE

Carol Bennett is a Chemical Engineer with an MBA. She has successfully applied her extensive project management and mergers & acquisitions experience in all of her real estate transactions. This has enabled her to meet clients objectives - which she pursues with diligence and enthusiasm. She knows clients want results - whether finding buyers for their current property or finding their next home.

PERSONAL INFORMATION AND HOBBIES

Carol was born in New York and has lived and worked in various countries. She lived in Switzerland for 10 years where she managed a team of mergers & acquisition consultants for a major Swiss International company. She relocated to the Bay Area with her husband in 2004 where they reside in Palomar Park.

In 2018, Carol and her husband completed a demanding sailing race across the North Pacific where 50 foot waves and 80 mph winds created for an exciting experience. Carol places the same energy and enthusiasm required for ocean racing into her real estate work - and thoroughly enjoys working to meet her clients objectives.  Within the mid-Peninsula community, she is active with the "PCC", Peninsula Community Center, Masters Swim team and enjoys taking in many of the wonderful hiking areas around the Bay Area.

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home. I work diligently to understand your criteria, bring you up to speed on market information and identify real opportunities.

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. With my years of transaction experience I have a proven track record of successfully leading the efforts in this important process.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast. My years of project management experience have equipped me with the necessary skills to lead such projects relying on a broad network of qualified contractors in the area. 

What Clients Are Saying

We are so grateful to be introduced to Carol Bennett and have her on our side as our realtor. As first time home-buyers with very little knowledge about how to find the right place, Carol is a knowledgeable and friendly guide in the local market. We started our search only on Emerald Hills, Woodside or Portola Valley. Carol introduced us to Palomer Park and the neighborhood is exactly what we wanted plus more. She took us to many showings, but we never felt forced to make an offer. When she found us our dream house, she guided us in a bidding war without going over our budget. After we secured the deal and win the house, she helped us negotiated with seller during disclosure and saved us tens of thousands of dollars.

Carol is smart, savvy, honest and have a very hard working ethic. What I appreciate the most about Carole is that she always looks out for the interests of her clients and we really cannot thank her enough for all that she has done for us. On some instances, when we were just tired of the incompetence of seller’s agent and was about to give in and absorb the extra costs, Carol would negotiate and get credits for us. Every sales is unique, but ours, in my opinion, is messy beyond belief, but Carol handled it with so much grace and ease. We highly recommend Carol Bennet to my family and friends looking for homes or selling a home. In fact, we have decided Carol will be our realtor for life. I expect my children to use Carol when they buy a home in the area. She is THAT awesome.
