Seamless Palo Alto Home Sale: Carol Borison's Dedication
We would highly recommend Carol Borison as a realtor. We wanted to sell our home in Palo Alto while living remotely, which was no easy task. Carol went above and beyond to make the entire process truly seamless. It is seldom that you come across a professional who truly cares about her clients. Carol Borison has that rare quality. She took care of all the details related to the sale, including the truly unnecessary, such as helping our current tenants find a new place to rent. She went out of her way to get multiple quotes for gardeners, stagers, etc. Finally, she has an excellent sense of the market trends in the area. She suggested a list price,and our place sold within 2 weeks. Overall, we had a really great experience working with Carol and would recommend her to anyone.

Master Of Off-Market Sales
We wanted to sell our home in Palo Alto off-market and needed to keep it under wraps for a while. Discretion was essential, and yet, we needed to get a competitive price. Carol gave us her full attention and used several effective strategies to determine market price and to find interested buyers while keeping it off market. We frequently reviewed strategy with her and in the end received an offer we were happy with. She supported and advised us through every step of the process and was truly a pleasure to work with. She knocked this one clear out of the park. We would highly recommend Carol.

The Renovation Expert
I highly recommend using Carol as a real estate agent. She worked tirelessly and did a fantastic job on the home that I sold that needed a fair amount of renovation. It came out looking great. The work was done for less than I expected to spend, and the result and subsequent sale price exceeded my expectations.

Carol Borison: A Stellar Realtor
Carol was a great resource and partner in helping us market and sell our San Jose home! She's a true professional and started off with a thorough presentation as to current real estate market conditions while also helping us face the challenges presented when Covid-19 hit. Both social and market conditions were uncertain and no one knew how things were to transpire. With her guidance and expertise, we worked together to achieve our desired outcome and goals. Carol incorporated every marketing tool including a virtual showing of our home to attract buyers. She also provided valuable feedback and help in ensuring both the inside and outside of our home was most appealing and occupant ready. Our original strategy and plan of selling our home proceeded smoothly despite Covid-19... we would highly recommend Carol and her Compass Team!

Highly Recommended: Carol Borison
We are very happy with the services provided by Carol Borison. We indeed found her to be very knowledgeable and professional, and also a very nice person. Carol did a great job representing us throughout the entire process, and especially after we moved away and she became solely responsible for running the sale on our behalf. She skillfully managed all aspects of the sale from staging and preparing the property to negotiating and completing all the paperwork. When we stumbled upon some problems caused by our move overseas, she promptly and efficiently resolved them to the satisfaction of all parties. We will be glad to recommend Carol to our friends and acquaintances who may need a great Realtor.

The Best Realtor Ever
Just a note to say that Carol is the best realtor I have known in my 68 years of living. I have bought or sold about 15 properties in my life, and she is the most knowledgeable and honest one I have encountered. I cannot say enough good things about her. Please contact me if you have any questions.

Relocation Made Easy: Thank You, Carol!
Today we took a giant step in relocating from one end of the country to the other in closing on our new home. This move came as a huge surprise to us and we never could have done it without you. During an emotional and chaotic time, with my husband on one coast and me on the other, you managed to smooth over so many of the complicated details, make all those pesky question marks melt away and always be there with your supportive smile and helpful advice. And on those times when I was able to pop out to California, usually with almost no notice, you always managed to be there to show us homes, fitting into our crazy schedules and never making us feel that we were imposing. Thank you thank you for being our first and best contact in our new world!

Making Dreams Come True
Carol, thank you for all of your help during this process. You have successfully helped another client become house poor, which was our dream since beginning our search in October. Seriously, thank you for catering to my schedule and discussing strategies and solutions to address the various bumps along the way. Also, a special thanks for being so responsive, especially when we found our condo. I truly believe that the key to getting our place was our ability to extend an offer so quickly. Without the quick issuance of the pre-approval or the midnight signing of the offer package, I do not think our offer would have been selected. These two moves were especially key to our success here. BIG THANKS! As my wife says, you're the best!!!

Making Dream Homes Happen
Yaffa, many thanks for helping us find our dream home in Palo Alto. Thank you for being so very accommodating throughout the entire process - from your patience when touring various homes (especially rushing to see 4 homes in 2 hours of free time my husband had); to coming over to sign the offer documents; opening the home to use so many times prior to closing so we could arrange for carpet, blinds, etc. to be ordered prior to closing. As first time home buyers, we also really appreciated your insight into all the ins and outs of the Palo Alto real estate market. Your expertise really gave us confidence that our interests were being protected and we were making an informed decision. We couldn't have made this purchase without you!

A Dedicated Partner In Your Home Search
Carol Yaffa Borison helped us find a home. She factored our requirements into her search process and continually optimized the search parameters based on our feedback. She patiently took us to see homes and never once pressured us into making an offer. She was completely committed to helping us find a home that we would love. Based on her expert advice we were able to put in an appropriate offer for the home we were interested in. She was very meticulous, explained all the complicated documents and ensured that everything was completed/signed correctly in a timely manner so that we did not have to worry about these details. She was a very efficient liaison between all the concerned parties and made sure that nothing fell through the cracks. It has been a pleasure working with Yaffa and we are very happy her to refer our friends looking to buy/sell a home.

Your Personal Homebuying Partner
We highly recommend Yaffa Borison as a real estate agent. As first time home buyers, we really needed someone who knew every detail of the process and had the sensitivity to address all our questions and concerns as if we were family. Yaffa was exactly that person. It was clearly more important to her that we be happy and comfortable every step of the way than for her to make the sale. She was incredibly professional, but at the same time so personal in her guidance before, during, and after we closed on our home. We are especially thankful to Yaffa for having the knowledge and expertise to renegotiate the terms of the contract before removing our contingencies when we realized that some of the information in the disclosures had been misrepresented. By renegotiating for us, Yaffa saved us a substantial amount of money. We couldn't be more appreciative!

Yaffa: Your First Home Guide
Yaffa walked us through the process of buying our first home, and made it easy, understandable and exciting. She helped us find our dream home and successfully negotiated it for an excellent price on our first try! She was also accessible whenever we needed her, and efficient in taking care of the myriad details that needed to get done. On a personal level, Yaffa is friendly, upbeat and straightforward. She is also very knowledgeable about the market and about all aspects of home ownership and maintenance. I highly recommend her services. Yaffa was just great!

Yaffa: Your Caring Realtor
Yaffa was caring, authentic, hardworking, and always had our best interest in mind. She was always available to answer questions, show us properties, and made us feel like her top priority despite her busy life. If you?re looking for someone with positive energy and extremely knowledgeable in her field and the Bay Area housing market in general, then Yaffa is the right agent for you. We loved working with Yaffa so much that we referred her to my mom because we knew she would take great care of her too. Yaffa has a wonderful attitude and is always a pleasure to work with.

Carol: Your Real Estate Advocate
Carol adds significant value to any real estate search. Carol is quick to spot hidden value and properties that met our specific needs. With her extensive knowledge of the local market, Carol was indispensable in helping us evaluate listing prices and formulate a bidding strategy. Thanks to her assistance, we were able to identify, bid on, and successfully close on our house in a short time frame, notwithstanding the limited inventory in the market. I'd highly recommend Carol to anyone.

Trustworthy, Organized, Results-Oriented
Yaffa is honest, trustworthy, hardworking, not pushy, organized & focused. She was great at getting us pre-market leads, market trend data, and getting the inside scoop from sellers/agents. We moved here from Hoboken and enjoyed working with Yaffa -- none of the BS and drama we'd encountered in New Jersey.
