Carissa is an incredible realtor and overall person. As a first time homebuyer, I had no idea where to begin and Carissa was extremely helpful every step of the way making the process exciting and less stressful. She took the time to get to know me and what houses would fit my needs best as I had quite the laundry list of requests. I remember her saying that there would be this “ah-ha!” moment when I walked into the perfect home and she was absolutely right. We both had this gut feeling on a newly listed place and put in an offer right away… she kicked her competitive spirit up a notch as she negotiated to get me into this residence that I now call home. She is knowledgeable about the market, what to look for, and is honest from beginning to end. I cannot say enough about how great it was to work with Carissa. If you are in the market for finding a realtor to trust with this journey she’s the one you want to work with.
Carissa was fabulous. I was a first time home buyer and very unsure about what to do and how to make the right choice. She walked me through every step multiple times, and happily answered every detailed question I had. She was quick to respond and available to help with whatever I needed. Carissa was a true partner in this from day 1 by being a firm but fair negotiator and dealing with many parties to make sure I was comfortable. She really went above and beyond, continuing to advise me and provide resources after the house closed. It’s such a blessing to have a true partner on your side through such a stressful process as buying your first home.
Carissa was amazing as realtor – she provides a wealth of knowledge, educated me on the home buying process and dissolved any fear I had into a feeling of empowerment. I am extremely happy with how communicative, attentive, and passionate Carissa was with me through the process as I was a first time home buyer. My favorite attribute that Carissa has is her intuitiveness about a home aligning perfectly with what I expressed my vision to be– that had all of the characteristics I wanted, and she fought diligently to make it come to fruition. I cannot recommend her enough, as she made what is a stressful process, so much less stressful due to her organization, motivation, caring, and professional nature.
Our experience with Carissa was amazing. She made the entire home buying process easy and stress free. She first met with us to gather our must haves and nice to haves to understand what we truly wanted. During the process she was very responsive to our emails, texts, and calls. Before putting in an offer, she researched comps in the neighborhood to make sure we did not submit too low or high of an offer. After our offer was accepted, she kept us up-to-date on the weekly tasks and answered any questions. The entire home buying process was smooth, I would recommend her to anyone.
Carissa recently worked on a sale of a townhouse in Mesa for us. Carissa has a mastery of skills and knowledge associated with real estate and more importantly, she is very honest in all her endeavors with all the people she works with to achieve goals. Carissa goes above and beyond to dot all the “i’s” and cross all the “t’s” with all concerned parties in the real estate process. We highly recommend her on any concerns and work having to do with real estate and achieving your goals.
My experience with Carissa was a little unique in that I found her via Instagram and was immediately drawn to her passion she expressed for her clients, most specifically in the (spoiler alert…) personalized, hand drawn sketches of her client’s dogs given as housewarming gifts. You can’t go wrong with anyone who recognizes the value of a dog in each family and gives such a meaningful gift to appreciate that. It was also unique because I contacted her from Utah as I was preparing to relocate to the Phoenix valley. She was extremely responsive from the very first email, accommodated my tight timeline by making herself available to me at each short trip into town, and she coordinated all the necessary pieces of the puzzle for me while I was wrapping things up in Utah. After the general inspection turned up some indications of the roof reaching end of its life, she negotiated a brand new roof, making me that much more confident in my investment decision. This is my first experience relocating away from home and very easily could have been an overwhelmingly stressful process. Having Carissa on my team made all the difference!
Carissa was excellent to work with. She helped us find a great home and was very knowledgeable throughout the process. I would recommend using Carissa for your real estate needs.
My wife and I recently used Carissa to sell our house in Arcadia and buy another one in the area. She was a great guide through the process. She is very knowledgeable and offered great insights as to what would help make our house sell quickly. Carissa did a great job of marketing our house and we received and accepted an offer within a week of going on the market. Carissa listened to what we wanted and took us to see a number of houses, helping us find the perfect home. She answered texts, phone calls and emails in a timely manner. She handled the negotiation process with great skill. Even though we weren’t her only clients (I think she closed three other deals in the same time frame) I felt like we were her only clients. If you are in the market to buy/sell a home I highly recommend Carissa. She loves what she does and it shows in her work.
Carissa was very knowledgeable and responsive in getting things moving. When anyone in the process started lagging behind, she was there to crack the whip and ensure that all the wheels were turning in the right direction. We were dealing with a less than responsive seller, and I believe that because of Carissa we were still able to close on time. She was also great at helping me find good properties, and as a first time home buyer she helped me understand certain pitfalls and problems that I could encounter.
Carissa Vivirito did a superb job handling the sale of our home. She was thoroughly involved in every step, and kept us appraised of what to expect at each step before it was needed. She was more than eager to answer any questions we had and put us at ease every step of the way. We are thrilled to recommend her reality services to any of our friends. Carissa, keep up the wonderful work that you do, as we know, you well do. It is who you are. Thank you Carissa. God bless you.
Carissa was very helpful and willing to assist with any questions or concerns during the property buying process. She helped me a lot by walking me through and explaining everything so that I was comfortable and ready to move forward. Carissa knows the area (Phoenix Valley) and keeps her head on a swivel in regards to new properties that just came onto the market. Highly recommend her services.
Carissa was recommended to us by our son. Let’s face it…buying or selling a home is STRESSFUL! But having a real estate agent who really knows and understands the current housing market/trends and who really CARES about their clients – can and will – make all the difference in the world! Carissa’s EXPERT ADVICE, PROFESSIONALISM, and attention to every detail of this process were exactly what we needed. From beginning to end, Carissa made this experience pleasant…keeping us well informed of where we were on the timeline of events…what had happened and what still needed to happen. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND her for any and all of your real estate needs! Thank you, Carissa!
Carissa was the best! We needed a place to move into quickly and she really went out of her way to help us! We had a tricky wish list and a strict budget and she had us all signing contracts with in 2 weeks!!! She got us all the information quickly, was organized, and really paid attention to what we wanted. If you are looking to move I would 10/10 highly recommend Carissa as your real estate agent! Will not move again without her.
I never really write reviews but I am one of those people that reads them all, so I’d definitely say Carissa was amazing and very helpful. I wanted to take the time to review her because I’d absolutely recommend Carissa for anyone looking to rent, buy, or sell their home. I was looking to rent and was under a huge time crunch. We were moving from Tucson to Phoenix for my new job and we needed to find a place as soon as possible. Carissa approached me by email and immediately sent me 42 properties to look at around the area. We narrowed our search and she met with us to look at a few properties. She prioritized our needs, which were finding a safe neighborhood and a house that would take our three dogs. Carissa was very approachable, engaging, respectful of our needs, and understood our time sensitive situation. I am very pleased with her extremely fast service and I am very thankful we found a good place that would fit all our needs.
Carissa was excellent to work with, and I would highly recommend using her as your agent! Our situation was complex with a sale and a purchase and navigating the challenges of aligning closing dates and other key milestones was something we couldn’t have done without her. Among many other characteristics that make her successful, Carissa’s strongest attributes are her attention to detail, excellent follow up, and constant and clear communication. She helped us with a number of hiccups that were outside of our control and was professional and dedicated to helping us find our perfect home.
Carissa did a fantastic job helping me sell my house. She made the process so easy. She was knowledgeable and available anytime for questions or concerns. I would recommend her to anyone looking to sell or buy.
Thanks to Carissa, we were able to go from renting a home to buying a home in less than 2 months. She was thorough and knows how to negotiate. The home we bought had another offer and the owner was about to counter that other offer, but she convinced him to let us submit ours and bam we got the verbal agreement that night and papers rolling the next morning. Very grateful for her hard work and patience with us since we are first time home buyers.
Carissa was excellent. As a first-time home buyer, she guided me through the process and was very responsive. During the home viewings, she quickly understood what I was looking for, and helped me prioritize my search. She was helpful in the negotiation process to make my offer competitive. During close, she worked with my lender to keep things on track. She was great and would highly recommend.
I am a first-time home buyer and Carissa helped me throughout the entire process. She is incredibly knowledgeable and is not afraid to say what a buyer needs to hear. I Highly recommend especially if you are a first-time home buyer!
Carissa was nothing shy of absolutely phenomenal throughout the entire home buying process. She is everything you would hope for in a real estate agent from her local knowledge, responsiveness, negotiation skills, and expertise throughout the process. Whenever we had any questions or concerns Carissa was prompt in addressing them and was always quick on her feet to provide a solution or recommendation. It is safe to say that I will DEFINITELY be using her again in the future for all of our real estate needs.
My first home buying experience was a nightmare. My second was so easy it didn’t feel real. The difference? Carissa. Without her guidance and her natural instinct for understanding what people want, I wouldn’t be moving into my dream home tomorrow. She’s incredibly organized. She anticipates every piece of the puzzle. She made something that had seemed so daunting to me previously, seem like it was a piece of cake. And now I will have that cake in a home I hadn’t thought I’d be living in only a month ago. I spent years fantasizing about owning a home in a certain historic neighborhood. When an unexpected opportunity arrived, Carissa helped me seize it. Her advice is why my offer won against others. Her manner and way of communicating is why everything about this transaction seemed painless. Honestly, she’s so smart in every move she makes, that I actually learned from her and gained tools I can bring into my own life. This was more than a home buying experience for me. There is no other person I’d trust for my future sell or buy, and that probably makes a lot of my friends upset, because I know too many realtors. I just can’t go back after this. I’m sorry, friends. Please don’t hate me.
In one word, Carissa was amazing! Home hunting and buying is stressful enough as is, especially during a pandemic. But Carissa couldn’t have been more patient and responsive to my process and needs. She really listened to what I wanted in a home and never pressured me to push my budget. At the showings, she was highly informed and she provided research to help me compare homes of interest to others in the neighborhood. When it came time to make an offer, she was a great negotiator and got me the home I wanted! She kept regular communication throughout the entire process, and sent clear weekly “what to expect” and delegated “to-do” lists–which was exactly what a novice buyer like me needed. Suffice it to say, when it comes time to buy or sell again, she will be my go-to. Thanks, Carissa!
Working with Carissa has been a great experience! She’s very knowledgeable, great at negotiating, and is so patient with me as a first-time home buyer. She was extremely helpful with any questions I had, and was very responsive if I had any issues or anything going on. Would recommend her to anyone.
Working with Carissa was my best experience yet, as I previously owned a home using another realtor and while they were good, Carissa was great! She has a unique way or rating a home from 1 to 10 that I found so helpful. She is very good at what she does. 100 percent recommend. She is very prompt and helpful with understanding each and every process.
If you’re in the market for an experienced realtor, then look no further! Carissa can help you get that dream house. She helped us get a house in less than 15 days and her negotiation skills are out of this world. Don’t take my word for it just reach out to her and find out how amazing she is, thank me later!
Carissa is a true professional and everything you’d hope for when looking for an agent. She’s fast to respond, knowledgeable, and watches out for her clients’ best interests. I can’t wait to purchase more homes with Carissa!
Carissa was absolutely amazing! I can’t thank her enough for her help in finding my perfect first home. She was extremely easy to communicate with and available whenever I had questions or wanted to check out a property. Since this was my first home, I didn’t really know what to expect with the process but she blew me away and completed exceeded them! I will definitely be going to her when I’m ready for my next home and will refer any friends or family to her without hesitation!
Can’t say enough good things about working with Carissa. I was lucky enough to be referred to her and had a great experience from start to finish. Carissa understood my timeline, what I was looking for in a home, provided open and honest feedback, answered all of my questions (I had a lot), suggested creative ways to make my offer(s) stand out, and made me feel safe and comfortable all the way through closing on my new home here in Phoenix. I would 100% work with Carissa again. A+
Carissa is an amazing Realtor! The amount of help that she was throughout the entire process was astonishing.
