Carl carefully listened to me as I went over details of what I was seeking, made thoughtful suggestions, and worked within the box of my unique circumstances and limited budget. When things didn't work out, he took it in stride and was willing to jump back in a year later and try again when options were better.
As a first-time homebuyer with absolutely no idea what I was doing, I was ecstatic that Carl would answer all my questions, even the kinda dumb ones I'd send him at weird times. I was able to make an informed purchase decision and I never felt like I was being led along into something more advantageous for someone else than for me.
Thanks to his advice, guidance, and patient assistance, I'm moving into my first home this week and I'm enormously happy with how it has turned out. Thank you a million times over!

Your listing was in the best shape and staged better than any resale home I have ever seen in the 30 years of my career. Your listing showed like a brand new construction home. I particularly liked your house talk cards as we walked through the house and how they pointed out the special features. Well Done !

It is our pleasure to recommend Carl Johnson to any potential client looking for a highly professional, knowledgeable and caring real estate agent. In fact we cannot recommend Carl highly enough.
We worked with Carl on a complex purchase in downtown Durham - he made the process as smooth and painless as possible. It was a complicated 1031 situation and the logistics were a nightmare; the deal would not have happened if not for Carl. He painstakenly shephearded it to the finish line through a maze of obstacles and was always on top of the game.
He was proactive and creative in his approach, going an extra mile to explore multiple angles, to ensure the best outcome. We were thoroughly impressed with Carl's deep knowledge of the real estate business, with his unwavering attention to detail, and with his committment to his clients.
Carl is truly an advocate for clients' interests, and he takes great care to understand their needs. Carl is a great communicator and kept us informed on all matters involving the property. He was always available to us and we relied on his expertise frequently and extensively.
We feel we've been getting "white glove" level of service from Carl, and he's set the bar really high. In fact we enjoyed working with Carl so much that we joked we'll clone him and have him represent us in all our other transactions, outside of NC. Thank you Carl -- you exceeded our expectations in every way, and you were so much fun to work with!

Carl was great to work with and I would suggest working with Carl to anyone looking for a realtor. One thing we really appreciated about Carl was his excellent communication. We started with an initial meeting where he listened and wrote down everything we were looking for. He always answered or returned calls and on top of sending us new listings he thought we would be interested in. Carl is also very organized and had everything running smoothly from planning house viewings, to scheduling inspections and finding the right lender, through closing. If you're looking for someone who will work with your best interests in mind, talk to Carl.

Carl did a great job helping me sell my rental home, paying great attention to detail. He accepted nothing short of perfection in making sure the house looked just right before going to market; even lending staging items from his own collection to add the finishing touches. His hard work paid off with multiple offers over asking price which resulted in a quick sale.

My wife and I were new to the Chapel Hill area and we were renting a home while we learned a little about the place. After living here for seven months we began to go to Open Houses with the intention of looking to buy in a particular school district, as education of our two sons is important to us. Luckily we ran into Carl Johnson at one of the first Open Houses. We had met a lot of Agents at that time but Carl seemed to us to be on his game and very familiar with the area.
We decided to sign up with Coldwell Banker Advantage and Carl after meeting at his offices a second time. We sure are glad we did this. My wife and I had particular points of interest in what we wanted in a house, besides the school districts, and it wasn’t easy for us to find what we wanted. In no time at all, it seemed, we had seen several places that were right for us, thanks to Carl. Not only did we find a primary residence but we also found an investment property that fit us as well! That’s the point at which Carl really helped us.
From strategies on bidding to getting the right due diligence people and negotiating some abatements, Carl was there for us the whole way, meeting face to face, on the phone or texting each other as the need arose. We were successful on both bids! Carl then helped us through the Closing Process and he even had lists of vendors for some repairs and/or changes we were contemplating.
Best of all, Carl is a very affable person, very helpful and really friendly. We had fun! In what is usually a very anxious process of buying a new home. Carl has even offered to host a Housewarming Party once we get settled in to our New Home later this Summer!
If you’re looking to buy a home in the Triangle Area look no further than Coldwell Banker Advantage’s Carl Johnson. You’ll be happy you did.
