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.

I worked with Carl Johnson on a transaction in Apex, I was the broker on the other side of the table buying the property for myself and my wife from Carl and his seller. He was professional, kind, responsive and helped ensure a smooth and stress-free closing. I was amazed that the level of detail Carl put into listing the property for his client. His preparation of the home earned a bid from me well above list price. I can easily recommend Carl to anyone looking for an agent in the Triangle and this is coming from an agent in the Triangle.

We owned a home in Durham, North Carolina which we wanted to sell. Real Estate agent Carl Johnson was recommended to us. From the very start, Carl was knowledgeable and optimistic. After his inspection of the property, he had several staging ideas to help better market the property. He has an eye for design and a hands-on approach. He was able to list our property and get it sold for us in less time than we thought possible.
We enjoyed working with Carl and highly recommend him for any of your real estate needs. Thanks again Carl and we look forward to working with you again.

My wife and I recently completed the sale of our quirky Durham duplex in Trinity Park with Carl. Despite the COVID-19 situation, working with Carl and his team was an incredible (and profitable) experience.
I was referred to Carl by another real estate professional who thought Carl’s expertise, huge network, and attention to detail would be our best chance at achieving our goals, and from day one, the difference was clear.
Carl gave us comprehensive to-do lists, helped us to find and manage local professionals to polish the rough edges, and walked us through his aggressive pricing and marketing strategy. He had positioned buyers before we even put it on the market. When last minute things came up, Carl and his team were there to take care of them without hesitating.
End of the day, what matters is getting what you want from an investment, right? Carl and his team positioned our unique house to get 8 offers in 72 hours. Six out of eight offers were above listing price. We sold it for cash at 8% over listing price with a two-week closing. Talk about results.
All this was done, from our initial meeting over Zoom to closing, in about 40 days. Since that time, I’ve recommended Carl to everyone I know, and when I move back to the area, he’s the first person I’m going to call.
Thank you so much for everything Carl, you are literally the best.

I was fortunate enough to be referred to Carl by a friend to assist with the sale of my condo. Given it was my first time selling a property it naturally came with a good deal of anxiety. Carl was able to guide me through the process of selling my home and making my experience truly stress free.
Carl goes above and beyond when preparing a house for market, from knowing which repairs or changes are worth it and which are not, to staging your home so beautifully you might second guess selling.
When the day came that my condo went on the market, we had two offers the first day! I believe all of Carl's hard work and guidance enabled me to get a fantastic price for my home. It was hard to say goodbye to the first home I had ever purchased, but I will not be saying goodbye to Carl and look forward to working with him again in the future.

I first met Carl at an open house at one of his listings. I didn't get that house but I did get a fantastic realtor out of the meeting. I came to Durham for medical reasons and loved it so much decided to stay. I wasn't really sure where I wanted to live, I just knew that I wanted to be close to everything.
Coming from San Francisco, I was used to having a certain kind of lifestyle that included walking everywhere, really small spaces and being in a condo. Carl was great at helping me narrow down neighborhoods to focus my search by picking my brain to find out what was really important to me with the location, kind of property and function within the house; he got a good laugh at my hatred of microwaves over the oven.
When on house tours, he was great at asking me questions about the space, pointing out any potential issues or items that might need immediate attention and reeling me in when I started talking about making changes. Carl was also great at helping me stick to my budget, which I did eventually increase because I wasn't comfortable with making quick decisions about a house in such a fast-moving market.
Once I found my house, I knew it the moment I walked in and Carl could tell by my reaction. When we started the negotiations, I knew that I was in good hands; Carl was on top of everything. He and his staff made sure that everything was in line and that the process was smooth and easy for me. I am so happy with my decision to move to Durham and I owe Carl many thanks for helping me make that possible.
