Expertise. Intuition. Ingenuity.

I provide exceptional real estate services that are customized to your needs. 

I have systems in place to support your success and adapt to your needs, timing and style.

This focused approach provides me with the time to elevate my education and experience,

so I can provide a fully professional level of service to you.

(While most agents spend most of their time trying to find their next client, I work almost exclusively by referral.)

My clients note that:

I keep in mind the big picture…and the long term.

I am calm, supportive and highly organized…devoted to your needs.

I don't hand you off to an assistant at any stage.

I do have a complete team available to assist…making it convenient for you.

I limit my clientele so I can deliver world-class service!

I am frank, honest and confidential so that I may earn your trust.

I am usually available six days a week, generally from 9am to 7pm.

I have an extensive real estate legal background so I work well under pressure—-and avoid possible difficulties.

I taught mandatory REALTORS’ Ethics for New Agents for several years.

I want to be your advocate and so I will not perform dual agency (represent both the buyer and the seller).

I provide full service to out-of-the-area Sellers and Buyers, in a fiduciary capacity.

I have the experience, the resources and the disposition to ensure seniors and their families experience a smooth transition to their next home.

I am committed to community service and involved in a variety of organizations, projects and ongoing volunteer responsibilities.

I am a firm negotiator, a deal maker; cooperative, not combative.

At close of escrow, I provide complete documentation of your purchase or sale…saving you aggravation and wasted time.  I enjoy helping you settle!

I provide the A to Z real estate resources you need---Appraisers to Koi ponds to Zen gardeners!​


My goal is to build strong, lifelong relationships so

you are delighted to send someone you care about to someone you trust…​

Accessible information...Practical knowledge...Shared understanding...

I believe in starting with why*

Do you know the Palladium Rule?  Beyond the Golden Rule:  I believe in treating you as you wish to be treated...

​I believe in co-creating a client/professional partnership devoted to your needs.  

I believe in maintaining a calm and positive mindset. 

Every property tells a story.  I believe you are entitled to

the most comprehensive research and complete disclosures.

I believe your real estate professional should anticipate turbulence and strategize options.

I believe it is important for you to have the resources you need and the options you want.

I believe your Realtor should not hand you off to an assistant;

but remain with you every step of the way...

When you work with me, you should expect a highly-effective collaboration---

one co-created with  transparency and consistency.

I discern your values and then deliver what is important to you.

p.s.  My clients don't need another app. 
They need a negotiator, a designer, a data analyst, a mind reader
and a resourceful ally who is devoted to them.  All at the same time.

"When we met...I had no idea how fortunate the Dillon Family would be to have your expertise, experience and integrity in the process of preparing the California home for sale."  Richard C., Trustee

"I consistently felt that I was her only client...Suffice it to say, she went far, far beyond the call of duty and exceeded expectations on every front...What also helped to smooth this challenging project was Carolyn's unflagging energy, positive and upbeat attitude and calm, reassuring personality." 
R. Cohen, Esq.

As for us, we're so happy with our home and also grateful to you for your incredible help to find it.  Thank you very much again and again.  Olga and Oleg P.

Carolyn Lenert was recommended by one of my customers who thought Carolyn would be the best person to find us a house in Marin County.  When I told my wife about Carolyn she thought I must be out of my mind to hire someone who does not even speak a word of Chinese. But we are glad we did hire Carolyn to be our Realtor.

She was wonderful from the start to the end. She listens carefully and asked all the right questions. She spent countless hours finding the house that fit our budget and needs. There were many days of negotiations on the offer and counter offer. Even when she was on vacation she made sure all the inspections were done right and on schedule!

When our house came on the market, a few agents appeared who were….ahem!  - ethically challenged.  Carolyn dispatched them in her fierce, calm and completely gracious way.  A last minute crisis appeared out of left field that I was absolutely, 150% sure would kill the deal.  It did not, but only because of Carolyn's resourcefulness and determination.  Mary & Gordon

Endless Opportunities

I am very impressed with the care you take with the area and neighborhood.  You're a real advocate for the public good...Looking forward to being a good neighbor and getting to know you

Mary M.

Awesome.  That is all.

I thank God every day that Carolyn is our Realtor---The process is actually quite complicated and Carolyn is totally on top of the details.  At the last minute, a crisis appeared out of left field that I was absolutely 150% sure would kill the deal.  It did not, but only because of Carolyn's resourcefulness and determination.  Carolyn's motto is "Avoid regret."  If you want someone who looks out for you and your interests WITHOUT FAIL, Carolyn is the one.

Julianna & Richard

Impressive and Exemplary

You were completely available to us at all times during the sale process, and in all ways did everything you said you would, when you said you would do it.  This meant a lot to us.  We do not say this lightly, for it is rare these days to find someone who is as dedicated and conscientious as you are.  Your performance was exemplary in every way.

Thank you for letting me earn your trust.  No spam...ever.
