Carla Giustino has consistently been ranked as a top producer for 23 years, previously with Frank Howard Allen and currently with Coldwell Banker in Marin and San Francisco Counties. She has been recognized as one of the "Top Ten Agents" for Coldwell Banker and was awarded International Presidents Elite. She has sold everything from condos to luxury real estate and multifamily apartment buildings in Marin, San Francisco, Sonoma and the East Bay. In 23 years Carla has sold every property she has ever listed, all close to asking price or above, and has listed and sold "challenging" properties that previous agents could not sell. 

Carla lives and breathes real estate and attributes much of her success to her strong family background of real estate investors. She purchased her first home at 20 years of age; therefore, she walks the walk and talks the talk. "Having personally invested in Real Estate for the past 40 years, I have experienced the ups and downs of an ever- changing market which has taught me how to sucessfully sell a home, whether it is a Seller's market or a Buyer's market."  

Carla is a committed and passionate real estate professional who prides herself in putting her clients satisfaction above all else. Her determination and attention to detail allows her clients to receive first class service with the utmost integrity. Carla is a member of the Marin County Top Agent Network which places her in the top 10% of Realtors countywide. This relationship enables her Buyer clients immediate access to properties not yet on the market and provides her Seller clients exposure to an expansive network of buyers.

"People have different opinions on how a real estate professional should represent their client. Honesty and integrity should go without saying. I am a firm believer in exceeding expectations and enhancing my client's quality of life. To me, being a Realtor means more than selling homes, it's about you, your hopes and dreams. It's a relationship based on trust, knowledge and expertise. I will go the extra mile to give you the best possible experience when buying or selling real estate. "My passion is real estate, and my performance reflects that!"

Personal Background
Carla Giustino is a long time Marin County resident and a Realtor since 1996. Her passion for real estate "is in her blood." She remains a managing partner of her family's San Francisco apartment buildings which keep her in the know on current values, opportunities and challenges for investors.  Although she resides in Marin County, she loves the beauty of what both counties have to offer. Carla enjoys hiking and biking in Marin, and the culture of San Francisco city life. 

"I highly recommend you to anyone contemplating the sale of a property. You gave our home maximum exposure, which included Realtor magazines, the Internet, local and San Francisco papers, and many open houses which were well attended. You networked well with other Realtors, who also spoke highly of you. Again, I highly recommend you. I do not feel anyone could have managed the sale any better."

  -Pat F., Client

"You are amazing! People like you give Realtor’s a really good name! We thought we were going to be in for a huge challenge – putting our house on the market right after the horrible events of September 11th. You are a true professional. You gave us some good tips on staging our house, helped us price our house correctly, and promoted our house well. We are convinced you are the BEST REALTOR in all of Marin County. We will always feel good about recommending you to all our friends – we know that your winning ways will always bring great success."

  -Mark A., Client

"You served as my real estate agent for my first home purchase which recently closed escrow. I’m sure you had more lucrative deals pending but you went the extra mile and within a week found me a very suitable three-bedroom townhouse that has already increased in value by $30,000. I’m very proud to be a home owner and I couldn’t have done it without your encouragement, energy, and know-how."

  -Steve M., Client

"Excellence deserves recognition, therefore, I must comment on your stellar performance. You acted as my Realtor in the recent sale of my San Rafael home. The experience was a totally positive one, thanks to you. You were constantly accessible for questions and was consistently helpful. The result was immediate sale of my home, well over the asking price. Needless to say, I am delighted with the outcome and extremely appreciative of your hard work and know-how."

  -Renee S., Client

"It is with pleasure that we provide this reference/testimonial for Carla Giustino. We met her to invest in some properties in Marin San Francisco, since the first day, it has been a wonderful journey…. she is professional, very efficient, and delivering a high quality service every time without fail. Her recommendations are always within our budget and expectations, she has all the qualities that someone looks for when selecting a top notch real estate agent, she knows the market very well and very dedicated to get the result done. We are based overseas and she does not mind to stay back late to communicate with us and by the way, she is also very accessible and is always available to answer"

  -Nanan T., Client

"Being first time home buyers,we were overwhelmed with the entire home buying and financing process, beginning with searching for and visiting numerous properties in addition to our busy lives. We are so fortunate to have worked with Carla in finding our home. She distilled the numerous homes in the geographical area in which we were looking to a few gems, and at no point did she waste our time with properties that were not worthwhile as potential homes. She was efficient, effective and very understanding throughout the process."

  -Marysia O., Client

"Not only did Carla Giustino find me my dream home, she sold my home in the hills, which is no easy task. From start to finish, her professionalism and years of experience selling in Marin County made the process of selling and buying during one of the most difficult periods in real estate history so much less harrowing. After selling my home in Larkspur, she found me the deal of a lifetime with a short sale in San Rafael and stuck with me during the whole process. I would not hesitate to recommend Carla Giustino to anyone interested in buying or selling."

  -Antoinette S., Client

"Carla has many strong points…as a buyer I would say her strongest is matching the person to the property. I was initially intending to purchase in San Francisco, but when she found the PERFECT property for me in Marin, that’s where I ended up and couldn’t be happier. From a seller’s perspective, her strongest point is pricing the property correctly and then staging it for a quick sale. From both perspectives, she makes the process as smooth as possible and is always there with a smile!"

  -Gloria P., Client

"If your looking for an agent that gets it and has a genuine interest in what you are looking for, I highly recommend working with Carla Giustino. I have worked with Carla twice and found both experiences to be excellent. The first was when I relocated my business headquarters to Marin. I was seeking property that had a view and a private tranquil setting. Carla was able to immediately find my dream home with only showing me two properties! Perched on a mountain top in Ross with 360 degree views it was beyond spectacular. I lived there for many years, until I had a set back on my health. Again, I called on her for my real estate needs, and she came through for me and found me a home to fit my health concerns. She is a genuine professional and will always look out for you whether buying or selling!"

  -Bud H., Client

"Carla Giustino was my realtor on my first home purchase several years ago. I love my home and could not have done it withour her since there were several challenges. I still live on the property and it has gone up in value exponentially, while most homes lost value in the past few years. Since then, Carla has been there whenever I have needed advice on how to grow my real estate portfolio. I highly recommend Carla and encourage you to consider her as your real estate agent. She has outstanding experience, a great work ethic and is an absolute talent in the industry."

  -Michael, Client

"I highly recommend Carla Giustino to anyone considering investing or selling San Francisco or Marin County Real Estate. I have been an investor in San Francisco Real Estate for over thirty years. I have worked with several agents who had no integrity and only thought about their commission. I hired Carla twelve years ago to represent me on selling my apartment buildings in San Francisco. She was able to sell my buildings for full price. In a recent frenzied market, I once again hired her to represent me in the acquisition of apartments buildings out of my exchange in Texas. Under a tremendous amount of pressure (sometimes with twenty offers on a property) she was able to find the exact properties I was looking for. She was available to answer calls beyond the regular hours and weekends, and I never had to talk to an assistant. She understood the pressure I was under and took on the task one-hundred percent. She persevered and never lost sight of my goals . If you’re looking f"
