What Our Clients Say
"Carla and Karen have helped me find tenants for ten years and in the end they helped to sell my house. They are fantastic professionals. The tenants were perfect over the ten years. I was renting an addition and it required finding the right people, which they did. Selling the house was also a challenge. We had an occupied addition and this made it an unusual situation. Once again, they were perfect and I was able to walk away with what I had asked for. These are professional and warm people and you can't go wrong with them."
"Carla was amazing to work with. From the very beginning I could tell how knowledgeable she was about my community and the surrounding market. Then to see how hard she worked in every aspect of the process was truly incredible. She was excited to show people how great my place was. After I moved Carla was at my place at least twice a day turning the porch light off and on, picking up, texting pictures of and forwarding my mail, checking to make sure everything was secure. She was there before the tropical storm putting outdoor furniture in the garage and sweeping up debris afterwards. All of that was in addition to showings, caravans and open houses when she would show up prior, turn on all the lights, turn on the air conditioning and the electric fireplace. She really treated my property as if it was her own. Carla also had great ideas and creative thinking in marketing the property. That helped so much in finding the right buyer. I’m so grateful for her hard work, experience and caring. She has an enthusiasm that is so wonderful and that makes her a joy to work with. I will always appreciate everything Carla did from listing to closing."
"Thank you for once again helping me out."
"To Carla & Karen- two who gave us another life. Read this with my appreciation."
"Thank you so much! It was a pleasure working with you on Arvinels. I absolutely enjoyed working with you. My clients love the house and they are very happy. You were truly very professional and a pleasure. Thank you so much!"
"It has been our pleasure to complete a transaction with you. We thought we would take a minute to communicate what a pleasurable experience it was. Carla was pleasant, professional and punctual in all aspects of our dealings with her. She would be a delight to work with at anytime in the future. We do hope we get that opportunity. "
"It is with pleasure and great confidence that I recommend Carla LaPorte as a skilled, caring and highly principled real estate professional. Carla has displayed vision and creativity in marketing properties, as well as finely tuned communication skills necessary to work effectively with buyers, sellers, and their representatives. She is hard working, conscientious and professional, having many satisfied clients. "
"Buying and selling a home is a stressful experience, but you made it go very smoothly. Thank you for your hand holding and many kindnesses."
"We needed to find a realtor to sell my aunt’s home in Del Mar. We spoke to some of her neighbors and friends in her community and one name kept coming up, “Get in touch with Carla LaPorte at Pacific Shore Properties!” We called her and she came over to look at the place and gave us recommendations and a game plan for selling the place quickly and for top dollar. We signed her up and she took over, helping us at every turn, answering all our questions, and making things as easy as possible…especially since we were doing this from the east coast! She helped us with everything from the estate sale, and the stuff left over afterwards, repairs needed after the inspection, sound advice on the offers we received, and navigating the escrow process. This story had a happy ending for both the sellers and the buyers! We couldn’t be more satisfied with Carla and Pacific Shore Properties and will join the ranks of many others there who would recommend her highly! "
"It’s hard for me to say enough good things about my dealings with Carla!! She is truly professional, she knows her market very well. Her communication skills make her very easy, professional, and pleasant to work with. She handles all the hurdles of completing negotiations and sales without adding any stress. After the sale of my property, there was a problem and Carla again handled the situation as only a true professional in her business could. She has integrity and a true interest in making the process as stress-free as possible. She cuts no corners. I hope you use her and she becomes your new friend. "
