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.

Buying a house, whether for a home or an investment can be confusing. There is so much paper work and so many decisions to make about location, style, price, financing and a myriad of questions that come up in the home buying process.
I recently bought a new construction home from a reputable builder and yet I decided to hire a buyer’s agent to represent me and make sure my interests were protected.
The buyer’s agent I selected was Carl Johnson. I already knew Carl to be detail oriented and very professional in everything he does. He kept track of all the paperwork and made sure I signed everything in a timely manner. He was very responsive to my emails and answered all my questions very quickly. He helped me find a financing option I had not thought of and of course that professional was just as motivated and pro active as Carl. That is why he recommended her.
An unexpected and very welcome bonus to hiring Carl is his design expertise. He tactfully steered me to a more desirable lot and model than I had originally chosen because it would probably have better resale value. I am so glad I listened to him on that. I am sure that he was right and it really didn’t cost much more to get a better investment. Carl helped me with all the choices of paint palettes, flooring and decorative tile. He helped me design a beautiful new home. When I was at a total loss as to where to put the cable outlets he knew exactly the right spot in each room to put them. He really is a full service broker.
I decided to use the closing attorney Carl recommended and I have never had such a stress free closing.
Finally I must say that working with Carl Johnson was a joy and a blessing and I recommend him highly.

We had the good fortune of being put in contact with Carl through word of mouth, when we were looking to purchase a home in Chapel Hill. We could have never known then that we were being put in the hands of such a capable realtor. Actually, Carl turned out to be more than a realtor. He was truly our agent working on our behalf and going above and beyond for us each step of the way. We took someone else’s word for Carl’s level of efficiency and after having benefited from it ourselves, it is now our pleasure to pass it on (or spread the word) - he’s the best!
