After Carl listed and sold our multi-family home in 10 days, we were in search of our new home but had specific family requirements. We were initially concerned about finding what we needed. That fear quickly vanished when we found a home that was perfect for our family. We were so excited, that is until we learned there were already multiple offers on the property. We all loved the house and were so worried it was too late. No need for worry! Thanks to Carl’s expert negotiation skills, we were able to secure and purchase our new home, with favorable terms. Carl worked diligently on our behalf. He is an experienced professional and it shows.
Finding the right real estate agent can be challenging, but happily we had Carl on our side (again)!I highly recommend Carl – his service is superb with unique marketing, skillful negotiating, easy accessibility and priceless experience. Throw in a friendly, can-do attitude with a bit of humor – what more could you ask for?
Thanks again Carl! We are forever grateful.
Matt & Jill Jolicoeur, Scituate, RI09/26/2014
We were initially hesitant to list our home with another real estate agent after such a disappointing experience with our first agent, who had our home on the market for 6 months, but was unable to get it sold. Upon discussing our frustrating real estate experience with our neighbor, he referred us to Carl Passarelli. Our neighbor highly recommended we contact Carl citing his own personal experiences enlisting Carl’s service on three separate occasions.
Thankfully, we listened to our neighbor and called Carl. He listed and SOLD our home in only 42 days, for full asking price – AMAZING! Equally important to a fast sale is experience and understanding. This is where Carl shines. He is a true professional with 15+ years experience, a unique marketing plan and very skillful negotiator.
Carl’s friendly manner and obvious knowledge immediately put us at ease. He never made us feel silly for asking questions, and always took the time to explain in detail. We were so impressed with Carl, we promptly enlisted his assistance in purchasing our new home in MA. Carl was there for us every step of the way…pricing, inspections, terms, etc. – always negotiating for our best interest. We’re so grateful to our neighbor for the referral, and we’re so grateful to Carl for everything!
We truly couldn’t have done it without him.
Thank you Carl – you’re the best!
Danny & Maria Paiva, Providence, RI09/03/2014
When we finally decided to sell our multi-family home and become part-time snowbirds, Carl came highly recommended through a longtime friend. Within 10 days of listing our home, Carl had it SOLD for 95% of asking price and negotiated our 3 month rent free stay in one of the units. We’re so grateful for the referral; working with Carl has been a pleasure. He’s a true professional and extremely knowledgeable. We were so impressed, we immediately enlisted Carl to assist us in the purchase of a single family home.
Thank you Carl! You patiently answered all our questions along the way (and we had quite a few since the home we were selling was purchased 40 years ago!), and made the process easy and understandable.
Paul Obuchon, Burrillville, RI06/20/2014
After my home sat on the market for six months with my first Realtor, I didn't think it would ever sell. I received a call from Carl and agreed to meet with him to discuss the possibility of getting my home sold. Carl asked what was important to me and I could tell that his marketing and no nonsense approach to Real Estate was different. I listed with Carl and was impressed with the number of showings that I had as soon as my home hit the market. My home sold for FULL PRICE in less than 10 days. Carl provided constant communication throughout the entire the entire sale process. My only regret is not calling Carl initially.
Jason MacLaughlin MPA/H, Pawtucket, RI07/31/2009
Our house was on the market for a year without any real consideration and my wife and I were getting frustrated. Our original agent offered suggestions but with little to back them up and seemed like she was throwing ideas against the wall hoping something did the trick. After our contract with her ended, we didn’t go right back on the market as we wanted to explore other options, be they another realtor or renting. We started receiving mailings from Carl very consistently during the weeks following our contract expiration. We got mailings from a few other agents, but usually only one per agent, and they lacked in presentation and focus. There wasn’t a day where we didn’t get a letter from Carl, and we felt that this guy really wants our listing, so we decided to meet with him. We were instantly impressed. His no B.S. approach was refreshing and his marketing was aggressive and hit all of the areas where buyers were looking. If Carl had a suggestion, he always provided his reasoning in a clear and concise manner—making sure that we understood the decision was ours. In this market a seller needs a realtor that does this professionally and not just as a side job or hobby, and Carl is a pro. Thanks for all your help and hard work!
Steven & Ellen S., Johnston, RI05/21/2008
Carl was very responsive and went above and beyond in regard to inspections, smoke/CO2 and running paperwork–all greatly appreciated. The buyer’s agent needlessly dragged his feet and was unresponsive, which led to some frustration on our part. We wished you could have applied more pressure to the Buyer’s agent. Still, in the end, you sold our house, and we are VERY happy that you were our Realtor. In fact, we purchased our next home with Carl!
Brian & Suzanne Blais, W. Warwick, RI08/25/2006
After a disappointing experience with our first realtor, who had our home on the market for 180 days with no offers, we were hesitant to choose another real estate agent right away. Carl Passarelli eased our concerns with his offer of an Easy Exit Listing Agreement, a feature that after getting to know Carl and experiencing his marketing approach became unnecessary. Carl sold our home in just 68 days thanks to his aggressive advertising campaign. We also had open houses on several different occasions. Throughout the entire process, we found Carl to be very receptive to our suggestions and genuinely interested in discussing any details that concerned us. We appreciated being able to contact Carl directly because his accessibility had a very calming effect on us during what could have otherwise been a very stressful time in our lives. After working with Carl for awhile, we concluded that his promotional claims were surprisingly valid and paralleled what was actually taking place during the marketing and sale process. Carl promised results and he delivered. Overall, we are extremely pleased and satisfied with Carl Passarelli’s professionalism and aggressive marketing style, which resulted in the successful sale of our home. Thanks again, Carl!
K. Baker, W. Warwick, RI01/31/2006
I had my house on the market for 90 days with another realtor with minimal results. After the expiration, I listed with Carl Passarelli and immediately began receiving a positive response. The advertising and promotions of my property were great. I got immediate results, and was able to choose between multiple offers. I would like to thank Carl for his individual attention, and making sure I got the most for my property.
