“Carla made our first home buying experience a breeze! She was constantly updating us and easily to reach when needed. She was full of knowledge and took the time to explain everything and suggest helpful tips. Highly recommend Carla!”
– Christina & Wayne
“We began working with Carla in January 2020 to relocate from Virginia for a military move. She was so accommodating to carve out a few days to show as many houses as possible during our house-hunting leave. Using her network of realtor connections she was able to show us a house that was not yet on the market but that would soon be listed. It was not an area we originally would have considered but the house and neighborhood ended up being perfect for us. When the pandemic hit right as we were in the final stages of closing, Carla was such a calming presence and kept the process moving smoothly while everything was shutting down. It was such a stressful time and I continue to be grateful for her professionalism and caring personality that helped see us through.”
– Amanda & Andrew
“Carla is the best! She helped us with buying our first home. Her communication skills are great, she answered every question we had quickly and thoroughly. Carla made the experience for us being first time buyers easy and she was there for us every step of the way.”
– Karen & Tyler
“My experience with Carla Alvord was fabulous! Carla listed a home my sister and I owned in Saratoga Springs, NY, our childhood home passed down from our parents. So this is always a delicate situation that can be an emotional roller coaster. Being one of the sellers of the home while living in Florida, I wanted a Realtor that would provide me with the comfort in knowing she is working for YOU. Carla shined with her professionalism, honesty and negotiating skills. She knows the market and has her finger on the pulse. I had all the trust and confidence in Carla that she was doing everything possible to get the house sold while keeping our best interest in mind. She listens to what your concerns and needs are, guiding you through the process of your transaction. I highly recommend Carla Alvord for all your real estate needs. She is like family to us now. We love you Carla!!”

“Carla is the most knowledgeable and experience individual concerning her job that I have had the pleasure of dealing with since I can remember. She is realist and I joy to deal with – I would consider her the only person to deal with involving sell / buying a house and property.”
– Marilyn & Jim
“We had a great experience working with Carla. I couldn’t believe how responsive she was to all of our requests and questions, and she knew far more than we ever hoped to about the process of buying/selling a home. Carla has been our real estate broker as a buyer once and a seller once. Carla is knowledgeable, understanding, honest, fun and extremely thorough. On our most recent transaction, I relocated before our condo went on the market. We were confident from previous experience that Carla would take care of everything and communicate throughout the process. We highly recommend Carla!”
– Shirley & Jim
“Buying my first home was exciting, after almost a year of looking, the home for me came on the market, Carla knew immediately. Five years later, my perfect home needed fresh eyes and new owners, so I called Carla. Through both exciting and stressful transactions Carla was there to help me navigate with grace. She remained calm in face of my overwhelm and was always available to answer my questions. Her thorough knowledge of real estate is comforting and streamlines the process. All that aside, Carla has a personal investment in her clients and my happiness was always her greatest priority. She will celebrate victories, small and large, and her genuine joy for her clients is palpable. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else and I’m grateful to have such a sweet soul in my corner.”
– Sarah H.
“There is no other realtor that I would chose than Carla! Her professionalism, negotiation, and guidance is top notch. My significant other and I had no idea how to go about purchasing our first home, Carla was there every step of the way. Answering my texts and calls at random hours of the day providing any updates/insight. We are so blessed to have the opportunity to work with her! I recommend everyone does, she will find you what you are looking for within your budget.”
