Before I entered the Real Estate profession, I was a Yolo County Analyst and, before that, a Housing Analyst for Sacramento Housing and Redevelopment Agency. With a background in Planning and Housing, I have knowledge of how to create subdivisions and special districts, as well as landlord and tenant rights. Furthermore, I have served on multiple labor contract negotiating committees.
Not all Realtors are Brokers. Brokers have passed the State of California Broker's Exam-- and it's TOUGH! To become a Broker, one must pass classes in advanced Real Estate topics such as Real Estate Law, Ethics, Appraisals, Escrow, and Financing-- to name just a few. In addition to advanced education in Real Estate, I've gathered skills learned in my previous occupations, especially analysis and negotiating. I have a college degree with a background in Social Work. This often comes into play since the home buying and selling process can be stressful. Recognizing how to help people cope with change and stress has been invaluable to my clients.
I am a Sacramento Association of Realtors Life Masters Club Member (we are the TOP 5% of agents in the Sacramento Valley), recognized for outstanding achievement in Real Estate. I am RETI certified (Real Estate Training Institute). A small fraction of active Realtors have earned this certification which offers in depth training in the following topics: Listing Agreements, Ethics, Offers and Negotiation, The CAR Purchase Agreement, Financing Programs, Title and Escrow, Natural Hazards Disclosure and Essentials of Structural Pest Control/Home Inspections.
My goal as a real estate professional has always been to help families find the right home for their lifestyle and needs. If selling, my goal is to get sellers top dollar in the shortest amount of time possible, with the least disruption to their lives. I want the buying and selling experience to be a positive one that leads to bigger and better opportunities. In other words, I enjoy helping people make their dreams come true! In turn, my dreams come true.
It is so meaningful to assist families and individuals with their real estate needs, whether buying a family home, vacation home, investment property or raw land. It is my pleasure to get acquainted with the many wonderful people I meet in this business.
Housing affects everyone, as well as the economy. I specialize in Residential Sales in Sacramento, Yolo, and Placer Counties. I emphasize win-win negotiating. With years of valuable experience as a Labor Contract Negotiator, I consistently help buyers and sellers get the best price and terms possible.
The most important aspect of the real estate profession is educating the public-- about the market, the process of buying and selling real estate, investing in real estate, building wealth and stability using real estate as an investment tool, leveraging resources to create wealth and a balanced portfolio.

|Cari is amazing! She is very knowledgeable, responsive, and great to work with. She sold our home, as well as helped us find a new home - we could not have asked for a better agent.. We were very impressed, and so was everyone else that worked with her!|
