What Our Clients Are Saying
I’ve known Grace for seven years. She has helped me find two rental properties, helped me buy a house in Beverly Hills, then managed to sell it at a time when the market was at an all-time low. I’m getting ready to engage her for my next house purchase. No one knows the west side of LA, particularly Beverly Hills, the way Grace does. She has relationships with all the other brokers in the area and is universally respected. Her background as a lawyer in Europe is apparent when she reviews contracts. She understands the complex psychology of both the buyer and the seller. She is careful, discreet, sensitive, realistic. She will help you achieve your real estate goals, no matter what they are. And if they don’t make sense, she’ll let you know that. Grace will put as much effort and care into buying or selling a small townhouse as she will into a multi-million dollar listing. To her, it’s all about providing the best possible service to the client.
Grace Carelli is one of the most knowledgeable and experienced Real Estate Agents I have worked with in the past 22 years across the Country. I have known Grace since I moved to CA in 2005. She has helped me finding homes and selling them with the utmost professionalism and kindness. She has never put any pressure on me and took time to adjust her schedule to mine in order to show properties. She is very flexible and understanding. Additionally she has always the client’s best interest as her top priority ( either as a buyer or as a seller) and her advise has been proven extremely valuable on so many different aspects of the transactions. In the current market is difficult to find an Agent with comparable honesty, experience, knowledge and dedication as Grace. I highly recommend anyone who is interested in buying or selling a property to contact Grace in order to have the best possible help. She is a true gem.
Grace is an incredible listing agent. She is extremely detailed oriented, an outstanding communicator and honest. She manages her business with integrity. Grace provided a comprehensive evaluation of our home value and the neighborhood. She priced it accurately and sold it quickly. She made our entire sales process run smoothly and stress free! She was also exceptionally helpful in helping us find a new place to live!
I have known Grace for over two decades. Right after I married my husband, Grace found us a fabulous house off Mulholland Drive for us initially to rent. Within 7 months, we wanted to buy the house. She was a masterful agent. She negotiated every little detail and took such good care of us. Her knowledge of the neighborhood was incredible and she supported us in every way possible. Grace is a very special person – professional, first class, warm and understanding. This is why we have remained friends all these years. I would never work with anyone else
We would not hesitate to use Grace again. We had used 2 real estate people and we were very very picky and on a specific budget. Grace was hardworking, creative, flexible, and really a wonderful person with good listening skills and a vision for us. She was recommended to us by the chair of our department at Cedars Sinai – I was a junior faculty member at the time and she did not treat us any different, always responsive. She found a rare find in Beverlywood, something that fit our restricted budget. There were offers that were above ours but Grace was able to convince the sellers that we were the best choice. Grace moved escrow very quickly for both parties, and was able to negotiate for us further, and get us an even better price. Not only did she not get frustrated as our house was listed as a conventional sale and then ended up being an estate sale, and this was a huge headache for everyone, but she was able to pull on her resources and get us through the legal mumbo jumbo and really watched out for us and protected our best interest. Finally, she also had an amazing vision for transforming the place, which really helped us to see the vision. We are so happy with our place now, we could not be any happier, and we have her to thank.
I highly recommend Grace’s real estate services to anyone who’s in the market for a house. She listens carefully to your needs, lets you down gently when you find out the housing market is very unforgiving, and finds a house that will make you happy — and all with eventual resale in mind.
Grace is not only a first class real estate agent, but also a wonderful person. I met Grace at an open house of hers while I was searching for a home in the Beverly Hills area. I knew after that open house that I wanted her as my real estate agent. When I found the house I wanted to buy, I called her and she negotiated the deal in days. She was there for every step of the process: from offer to inspection to move in. Now she is one of my dear friends and my real estate agent for life. I highly recommend her to everyone looking for a place to call home.
