Carter Sweet recently helped me with the purchase of my first home.  I just closed on my house March 31, 2015 without any problems at all. I am so thankful and satisfied that I had Carter represent me for this endeavor.

I highly recommend his real estate expertise!!!  5 Stars!  Vendetta

Carter did an excellent job in selling my Berkeley duplex. Since I had already moved to the East Coast, he made every effort to communicate with me via emails and phone calls several times a week on the status of the sale. I was very concerned about living so far away from the duplex while it was on the market. Carter was able to sell the duplex at an excellent price and in under sixty days. Carter is very professional and has a vast and current knowledge of the Berkeley real estate market. Working with Carter was a pleasure and I recommend him to any sellers seeking an honest and professional real estate agent.

Carter specializes in short sales and we are very pleased we chose him to deal with our short sale. Initially, he met up with my husband and I at our home to explain in great detail the process and we felt instantly comfortable with him. The rest of the process we mainly communicated via email or phone. It is clear Carter is very knowledgeable and experienced with this specialty. During the various times we were thrown confusing language from the bank, Carter answered all our questions clearly and in layman's terms, reassuring us every step of the way during this process.

Carter was very professional with all my dealings with him regarding the short sale of my home.  He was very responsive via email, phone and text.  His up to date knowledge, experience and technology used made my experience in short selling my home not as  cumbersome process as I had thought.  I never once had to meet with him in person to complete my short sale as everyhting was done on-line or over the phone which was great because of my busy schedule.  I definitely recommend him to anyone interested in a short sale.

Carter recently helped us complete a Short sale on our house in Oakley, Ca. He told us it would take about 6 months to get it done and that's almost exactly how long it took. We never felt ignored and all of our questions were answered promptly and thoroughly.  

After hearing stories of how short sales can go bad, we were very happy when ours went exactly as Carter had described.  Carter was very professional and outlined each step of the process in the initial phone call.  We highly recommend Carter to anyone considering a short sale.

Dear Carter, we cannot thank you enough for all your work throughout this very lengthy process.  There is no doubt that we would not have been able to sell our house without your engagement.  I am confident that no other agent would have been able to successfully assist in our particular situation. Thank you for all your efforts.

We researched and even talked to a couple agents before finding Carter, and we're very glad we did. He is very experienced in and knowledgeable about short sales, and was able to explain the process and answer questions in a very clear and concise manner. He made a deliberate decision years ago to specialize in short sales, and that made him stand out from the others who didn't seem to understand the complexities and differences with short sales. 

Carter came across as a partner and consultant in the process, and was never sales-y, pushy, or vague. Other critical factors that made us comfortable working with him was his high success rate, his understanding of how the banks operate and what they're looking for, and his ability to answer often confusing questions concerning liability and applicable California laws. 

The process took a little longer than hoped for, but was still in the time frame of what he said we could expect. Even when giving the banks everything they need their response can be slow, but he relayed this to us and managed our expectations really well by giving us a best case scenario without overselling it, as well as slower scenarios and their likelihood. Carter kept following up so that nothing from our side would slow down the process, maintained good communication, and called us back promptly when we had a question or wanted an additional update. 

The end result was a smooth and successful sale. Even after doing a lot of online research about short sales, we still had a lot of concerns and questions in the beginning, but Carter was able to address everything and we're thrilled with the process and result. We highly recommend Carter Sweet as a specialist for short sales.

Carter is such a professional, more than 5 stars! He assisted my husband and I with the sale of our condo and the process was effortless! What we appreciated most was he was calm, efficient, thorough and very easy to communicate with. He works with a sense of urgency and he always made our phone call or email a high priority. We also appreciated the pace at which he closed the deal and his style of keeping us up to date on every step of the process. Carter is just awesome and we highly recommend his real estate expertise!!!

Carter, thank you again!  We are thrilled with the sale and have tenants ready for move in.  All seems to be falling into place just in time for the holidays.  We will, of course, keep you in mind for any friends who may be looking in the future.

We decided to do a short sale and found The Short Sale Group in Emeryville.  We worked with Carter Sweet and he was good at explaining how it all worked before we started, and then it went like he said.  It took a long time but we got it done and if you need to do a short sale call Carter.

Excellent Realtor.  We had a complicated home sale situation in Albany, California.  Our escrow closing probably would not have been successful without the knowledge and experience of Carter Sweet.  We would highly recommend him to anyone.

Carter was very helpful, and it was a relief to finally meet an agent who listened to us.  He only showed us properties that met our specifications in location, price, size etc. and we were very happy to be able to buy the perfect house quickly enough.  Everything went very easily, and since we'd both bought houses before we'd seen how it could be difficult, but Carter answered all our questions and made everything happen just right.

In this down real estate market, we were suprised and very pleased that Carter sold our house in only nine days, and for more than our asking price.

He did the first open house event with two other agents, and got a lot of people to show up with all the advertising he did.  He had his entire office tour the house before that, to get their opinions on price and market.  We only did two open houses, two Sundays in a row, and boom the house was sold.  We couldn't have been more pleased, because these days most houses in our area seem to take months to sell, or have to sell at a loss price.

Carter was prompt, professional, and very organized.  I recommend him to anyone who needs a real estate agent.
