I'm a realtor who showed your Durham listing yesterday. Even though my buyers decided not to place an offer, I just wanted to tell you that your listing was the best prepared home for the market I've ever seen. Your notes on the wall were so helpful and often very funny.
My buyers especially liked the bird watching list. I just wanted to reach out because as an agent, I was really impressed with how hard you worked!
I hope it sells for the pie in the sky.
Byron and I want to thank you so much in the quick and timely sale of the property.
Everything was done in such a professional and informative way. Thank you for staying touch as the process was done. Especially since we are three and a half hours away in Little River, SC. The daily texts, emails, dotloop and calls were so helpful in the sale of his property.
Also, thank you for putting us in touch with the right people to clean out the house and have an estate sale. As all of Byron’s family are of an age that they could not handle the project.
Once again, thank you for all your hard work as the tedious sale took place. The stress was tough enough on Byron, but your constant contact helped ease his mind very much. Selling his home of 60 plus years was a difficult decision.
May God Bless you and your family,
- Carole & Byron (sellers)
I would like to thank you so very much for helping me with the sale of my house at Heather Glen and the purchase of my new house on Copper Creek.
Thanks for sending me suggestions for upgrades/repairs and for sending me people to contact to do some of the repairs needed. It was very helpful when trying to get the house ready and still work full time. Your knowledge of the market was very helpful. I really appreciate all that you did for me during the listing period. We had several offers and you were very helpful in discussing pros and cons about all offers. The house sold in 4 days! Also, when I needed someone to come in and clean my carpet at a short notice, you contacted your personal cleaning lady right away and she was able to help me out at the last minute and I really appreciated that.
You were also very helpful in the purchase of my new house – from sending me a broker to assist with financing to vetting the repair list with me from the inspection. That helped so much in figuring out what the seller should fix before the close. You pointed out things that should be repaired that I didn’t even notice and that was very helpful. All in all you were looking after me and making sure I wouldn’t have to deal with these issues on my own later. With this market as it is, your suggestions helped me in “winning” my new house.
I will always be grateful for the “little” things you did for me in this transition. This was a big move for me and you understood my situation and you were very supportive with my needs and wants. Thanks for coming by to my new house a few months ago with your special gift – I love it! I appreciate your comments on how my new house looks. I value your expert opinion in design. If anyone chooses you for their realtor they will have a friend for life. ☺

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your great help in finding my lovely new house. As you well know, I came to Raleigh not really knowing the area and I greatly appreciate the time you took guiding me through the many great neighborhoods here in the triangle and helping me zero in on the perfect place. Since I was coming from out of state, you were invaluable in tutoring me in the very different North Carolina real estate process and helping me understand local procedures that were very different from what I was accustomed to. Being that I am a very picky person you showed great patience in my extended search process and were always there for me suggesting new listings and graciously responding quickly to any property finds that I came up with.
Finally, you and your associates handled the closing in record time, I'm still kind of astonished that it all went as smoothly as it did
Thank you so much for all of your hard work, I so appreciate what you have done and look forward to working with you again in the future!

Carl Johnson made selling my home super easy and I received more $ than I ever expected. I have known Carl for years. I knew he operates with the highest degree of integrity and has a great eye. So, it was not a surprise that he laid out all potential concerns about marketing the home. It was impressive how easily Carl overcame any hurdles along the way. His creativity and flexibility were critical to closing the deal.

Yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised when I visited your listing and I wanted you to know how much I appreciated showing it. You definitely understand how to present a listing to the market.
For the past 16 years, I have been a full-time realtor in Washington, DC Metro. Since moving to the Raleigh/Durham area, I have shown many homes and you should know that your listing was a rare find for me. Not only did you provide an electronic lockbox to access the home, but your listing was well lit, clean, and there were fact sheets! The Sellers should know that they are very fortunate to have you! I wanted you to know that all the work that you put into presenting the home is very much appreciated.
The seller is fortunate to have a listing agent that understands how to present a home to the market. A job well done!
I am a firm believer that agents deserve to be recognized for doing things right! Thank you!

I highly recommend Carl Johnson. Carl gave me easy, specific options for increasing both the value of my property and the traffic it attracted. He has considerable experience in marketing, sales and the art of staging that positively affected the sale. He is extremely responsive and moved the sale process along quickly and efficiently. He was comfortable providing both in-person and remote services as needed throughout the entire process. He has an array of outside services to recommend, and the ones I used were excellent. My property received multiple offers and sold in three days for much greater than asking price thanks to Carl and his team.

If you are looking for a real estate agent, I highly recommend Carl Johnson with Coldwell Banker HPW. I needed to sell my Mother’s land quickly and had no idea where to start. I called Carl and he immediately got started. From start to finish was less than 3 weeks. He is talented, media-savvy, and knew exactly what was needed. The listing was on MLS for 1 hour before we had 4 offers. Carl’s knowledge, patience, and guidance will always be much appreciated.
I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did in expediting the sale of my house at 202 W. Carver Street in Durham. To have a contract in four days after you listed it on the market was phenomenal! I attribute this expediency to your remarkable marketing skills as a realtor! Showing the house twenty times in four days demonstrated your commitment to selling my house.
In addition I want to thank you for finding the electrician and plumber to repair the items requested by the buyer. If these repairs had not been completed in a timely manner, the house could not have been sold by the contract date.
Again I thank you for keeping me informed of every step involved with selling my house!
If you ever need a reference ask the seller to call me.

Working with Carl Johnson and his team was a pleasure. I had to sell my Mothers home, which was unique property. Carl was very aware that this was a special property and brought his knowledge of the local market to find the right buyer. He had a marketing plan that worked and worked fast. His presentation of the home in person and the media that he used to market it made it look as good as possible. The photos were professionally done. The in home staging looked wonderful. His advice for my preparation of the property was spot on. Whenever I had questions he was very responsive. I would definitely work with him again.
