What would you like potential clients to know about you?
I will take good care of them; they have chosen the best agent in the area. I will work relentlessly to make sure my clients get the best possible results. My slogan is “Nobody Does It Better.” For five decades, I have been striving to provide clients with an unparalleled level of service based on integrity, honesty and a commitment to excellence.
What does it take to be the best in the real estate business?
What I bring to the table is outstanding client representation, detailed market knowledge and high-tech marketing solutions. I have always been on the cutting edge of technology. I am very good at negotiating the best price for my clients and great at problem-solving.
How do you help clients beat the competition?
My strong reputation means that I am viewed as a top professional who will make sure the sale goes through. Other agents like to work with me for that reason. Sellers know that my marketing program is far superior. Many of my sales are homes previously listed with another agent. When I take over the listing and implement my marketing program, the property sells. I have strong negotiation skills, tools and resources to achieve the best results. Many of my clients are referred by business managers, attorneys, CPAs, real estate agents and past clients.
What do clients say about you?
“It was clear from our first conversation that you were the SME (subject matter expert) in our area and went about your business with focus and professionalism. Within the week we decided to market our property, your photo crew had captured pictures and a drone’s-eye view, printed brochures in stunning color and posted them all to social media. Your long professional relationship with the buyer’s broker was key to engineering the sale. Throughout the process you told us not what we wanted hear but what we needed to know. Sixty days from our listing date the movers were packing the last of our belongings, and we bid our home of 35 years a fond farewell. Bravo!”
— David and Nancy Meshulam
“We want to thank you for the wonderful job you did representing us on our home sale. Your years of experience, depth of knowledge and hard work got us to the finish line. You were always very responsive—even while on vacation. We can’t imagine using any other Realtor in the San Fernando Valley. We are sure that no one else would have gotten us the same results.”
— Alan Jones and Tim Lignoul
“We have lived in Encino for the past 27 years. We knew of Carol Wolfe by reputation. She has the reputation of selling homes that other agents could not sell. Carol was extremely professional, knowledgeable and efficient in selling our home. She went above and beyond on every level. She had wonderful sources to recommend to make our move easier. Carol was always there to answer questions and to calm our nerves. We knew we were in very good hands. We highly recommend Carol Wolfe if you are looking for a Realtor to sell your home.”

“My escrow just closed today, and I am very pleased with how Carol handled the entire process. We had multiple offers, and we accepted a cash offer at $200,000 over the list price. The house sold in two days! The escrow process was a breeze, and all details were handled in a professional and efficient manner. I highly recommend Carol if you need a real estate agent to sell your property.”
— Mike Kluba

I had the privilege of working with her in selling my home, and I cannot speak highly enough of her skills, dedication and expertise. Carol is not just a real estate agent; she is a true strategic partner. Her commitment to achieving the best possible results for her clients is evident from the very beginning of the process. Throughout the entire journey, she was consistently on top of every detail. Her communication skills are exceptional, ensuring that I was wellinformed at every stage of the selling process. Beyond her professional excellence, Carol is a pleasure to work with. Her friendly and approachable demeanor makes every interaction enjoyable. She genuinely cares about her clients’ needs and works tirelessly to meet them. If you are seeking a real estate professional who can deliver outstanding results while making the process enjoyable, Carol is the perfect choice.”
