Get to know Carole Jacoby
Let me begin by telling you a bit about myself. I was raised here in California's great Central Valley, so I know the Fresno/Clovis area as well as just about anybody. Like many Valley residents, I come from a farming background. I also attended local schools, married and raised my daughter here in Fresno.
Representing the consumer in buying and selling is a matter I take to heart. You will never find me taking a listing and then simply moving on to the next one. When folks place their trust in me, I take it upon myself not to disappoint them. With the multitude of details going into a purchase or sale, I strive for excellence in making sure my clients receive the best service possible. With VIP treatment in mind, each detail is properly attended to. Excellent negotiating skills are critical, and you will find that my years of experience have helped me learn how to negotiate in your best interest.
As a "boutique" Realtor, I not only give my full attention to every client, but I'm able to offer the best commission rates possible. Best of all, it will cost you nothing to give me a call. Let's visit and see how I can help you. No obligation, of course.
As a relocation specialist, I can be of great service if you are planning a move into or out of Fresno. I will begin by sending you homes to view prior to your arrival. Once you're here, you will receive my full attention until we find the perfect home for you and your family. I belong to two relocation companies, which means I can locate the perfect Realtor to help you in your destination city. Most importantly, this service won't cost you anything. You deserve a reliable, experienced Realtor to help you with your housing needs, and I can provide just the right person.

Testimonials for Carole Jacoby

Carole Jacoby, Owner-Broker of a small, real estate service office, offers hands on, personalized service with years of experience, which took us through the listing and sale of our home as well as the purchase of our new home. Our daughter, Lisa, used Carole's website to show students how to gather and evaluate information on buying homes. Lisa, after reviewing other sites, found Carole's had the best mix of specific properties and links to other relevant Realtor® sites. It was consumer friendly and easy to navigate. Lisa referred us to Carole and a fellow church member, who had used Carole's service, highly recommended her.
When we began to explored the possibility of relocating, Carole met with us to get acquainted and gathered general information regarding market conditions, the sale process, what we needed to do in preparation for listing our home. We were laboring under a heavy mix of work, church and family obligations. We completed those items she suggested and placed our home in the market at a much higher price than we thought and it sold immediately. (At full price).
Carole had assured us that she would find that perfect relocation home for us within our 40 day escrow period and she DID! There were 3 escrows involved. She negotiated elements of the escrow and they closed within the contract date with all parties happy. She coordinated everyone's special interests, loans, inspections, negotiation, etc. All Lenders, including our Cal Vet, cooperated beautifully (with a few gentle tugs and encouragements).
Carole performs like a one-person football team: Coach, Quarterback, Blocker, Runner and Receiver. Carole looks at what is best for her clients, not herself. We believe she acted in the very best tradition of the Realtor® profession. We highly urge everyone to use Carole Jacoby. You will not be sorry. Real estate is comprised of hundreds of small details; she will follow through on every one for you.
In three days, Carole got me a deal that made me money on property I thought would never sell. She proved not only to be extremely knowledgeable -- which was very helpful to me -- but incredibly responsive. Any time something needed to be done or there was a question, she was on it immediately.

We cannot say enough about how fantastic a Realtor Carole Jacoby is! From start to finish, Carole explained the steps we would have to take to sell our house. When we had questions, she was always available. And I do mean always! We never felt alone and unsupported at any point. Carole's professionalism and complete honesty made selling our house possible. I recommend her highly to anyone who needs a Realtor.

Let us take a minute to add our testimonial for the most professional service we have found with any Realtor®. Carole takes the time for us, she showed us homes until we found the home we wanted. She negotiated in our best interest and opened the home for us on several occasions as we were preparing to redecorate. She communicates with us on a daily basis and pays careful attention to every detail of the transaction. Use Carole for any of your real estate needs. You will be happy you did. We were transferring into Fresno and needed that extra time and attention. This was not just a business transaction. We look forward to a long and happy friendship with Carole for years to come.
I've purchased four homes and sold three in the past and never once dealt with such integrity, deligence and patience that Carole Jacoby offered, not even with my first home purchase in which my good friend was the Realtor®.
In this busy market, Realtors® don't seem to have the time to pamper their clients, especially, picky clients, like myself, and they seem to sleep in late. Carole is the exception to the Realtor® world. She worked hard for me on a daily basis, she was ready to go every day by seven in the morning and worked late, sometimes til ten o'clock in the evenings, until she found me the PERFECT home.
Because of her number of years of experience and knowledge in real estate, my escrow went quickly and painlessly. Carole made sure the Title Company, Loan Company and inspectors were on top of things so that I closed escrow on time and without penalties. I would highly recommend Carole to any client purchasing or sellling their home. There is only one negitive thing that I can think of about Carole... she works too hard!
Thanks Carole for you help, my beautiful home and your wonderful friendship!

When we met Carole, we were delighted to meet such a gracious and wonderful person and a very wise Realtor®. With over 30 years of experience behind her, Carole pays attention to the whole package, taking care of all the details. She also knows the area very well and will give you great tips on the subject.
Carole listened to what our needs were and took care of us. With Carole, she made us feel like we were the top priority on her list at all times. Carole took care of all the behind scenes and events that came up. She was always up front with us on everything. We didn't have to worry about anything at all.
Carole made buying our house a very enjoyable, exciting and smooth transaction. We highly recommend Carole Jacoby for all your real estate needs.

Where do I begin...When I found out I would be moving to Fresno (from near Laguna Beach)...in a very short time frame, I went right to the internet. Right there was Carole's website. Never did I look any further. I called for Carole the very next morning and the rest is, shall we say, history....
My wife won't be joining me for another year, but I needed a house and, in this place, I wanted a pool, too! I made arrangements to meet with Carole as soon as I could get to town. Carole showed us around town. We decided on an area we wanted and, not only did Carole start looking for houses for us, she took us by apartments that had short term leases, sat with us while we took care of those details and the drives around town began! Boy, did they begin...I distinctly remember telling Carole,"I want to find a house in that neighborhood"...pointing out of the window of her car, never thinking it would happen.
Well, I got a lot more than a house in that neighborhood. Yes, you guessed it, it has a pool and jacuzzi. On top of all that, we made a life-long friend that still today we keep in touch with and enjoy our visits...if we can ever get her to stop working!!
Thanks for everything, Carole.
Selling a home and moving into another one in another city can be a daunting experience. Carole Jacoby greatly eased my anxiety by collaborating with me from the marketing of my home through the complexities of the escrow process. Carole took care of the details representing my interests as her client expertly and in a very professional
I greatly value the tips she gave me regarding certain real estate transactions, and I passed on the knowledge to my children. For all that Carole Jacoby did, I thank her very much.

First, Thank You for being such a great friend and second, Thank You for doing such a great job with the sale of our house. We happened to be in a stressful situation with trying to sell a house and build a home at the same time. Thanks to you and all of your experience, everything fell into place and our timing couldn't have been better. We don't know what we would have done without you. You are and will always be recommended whenever we hear or know anyone that is looking to buy or sell a home. Again, Thank You so much for everything!
