Bio

I love working in real estate. It's a very rewarding career, and I'm so grateful to be a REALTOR®. I thoroughly enjoy taking care of my clients, and love the connections we forge during the home buying and selling process. I strive to be positive, patient, and persistent in all aspects of life, especially business. I will work hard for you, and hope to make your real estate experience a wonderful one.

I'm a Southern California transplant, but I've been here over 15 years, so Sacramento is now officially my home, and I love it. I grew up in Palmdale, which is in the High Desert of SoCal. My husband, Brian, is from Citrus Heights, and our relationship is what brought me to Sacramento. I'll be the first to admit that it took me a while to get settled here, but now I couldn't imagine living anywhere else. I love the people, the pace of life, and the way that Sacramento has such a small town feel, with full access to anything one could need. I especially love the weird dichotomy of urban-suburban-rural life (where else can you randomly see wild turkeys crossing the road in the middle of a busy intersection?!). I'm also very grateful for our music and theatre scene here. I'm thankful everyday for the decision we made to live here, and love it more, the longer I live here.

Now that you know a little about me, I'd love to hear about you! Feel free to send me a quick message to say "Hi!" Also, please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have regarding the current market, even if you're just curious about your future possibilities.

This has been such an easy process selling our condo, we never had to leave our home here in San Mateo, Carla had all the paperwork done via the internet and since our son was here to help us it made it better for us. Carla has done a exceptional job and we would definitely recommend her for future. We enjoyed having Carla as our agent. We are very satisfied with Lyon Real Estate Fair Oaks Very satisfied

Carla Martin is an excellent realtor and becoming a good friend of ours. Lyon Reaalty should be happy to have her. Carla's attitude, follow up and plan execution are beyond reproach. I wish I could offer feedback for improvement but how do does one improve on excellence. I have never had a better real estate transaction experience.

Stay awesome Carla! It was a blast to have you as our Realtor cause you understood us and knew how to interact with us (especially me). You really listened to what we wanted and took our feedback seriously on our wants and needs in a house. Happy to have you help us out so much!

Carla was an excellent listener and gained a quick understanding of our potential foreclosure and short sale situation. She offered excellent options and advice. She was up front to let us know areas in which she did not have expertise. However, Carla was the one who always found the subject matter expert or a resolution to any barriers. She was able to take control of situations through effective oral and written communications, but never was rude or condescending. Carla was always timely and explicit with timeframes. She exceeded out expectations. Did not have much interaction with the other staff members, but when we visited the office they were always friendly and professional. My wife and I would strongly recommend Carla Martin to our friends, family and others who are in need of a reliable, honest, trustworthy, super efficient, timely and GET THE JOB DONE real estate agent. Thank you Carla for all you did for and with us.

My daughter recommended Carla Martin to me when I needed a real estate agent. She has know her for some time and felt she was honest and would be a great help selling property owned by a family trust that I am trustee for. I was not sure how to go about selling property in the trust, but Carla knew just what to do. From the start she was extremely helpful and I could could tell that she was very knowledgeable. After the first meeting, I felt that she was the right agent for me. I trusted her right away. We had an offer within the first month. However, the buyers were very difficult to deal with. Carla did a great job dealing with them and keeping me calm and confident that she would take care of everything. She did take care of everything that came up and we closed escrow with no problems. I know that she had to put in a lot of extra time and effort to deal with the buyers and their agent. I felt bad that she had to work so hard dealing with them. I trusted Carla and she really came through. She did a great job for me. I have another property to sell and I know Carla Martin will do a great job. I look forward to working with her again.

Carla was always patient with our uncertainties and clearly explained matters to our satisfaction. She was always prepared and efficient, especially with those god-awful forms!

Carla was patient, very patient with me. She spent more than 2 months showing me places, to make sure I found the perfect home at the perfect price for me. I really appreciated this. She called me back promptly, responded to emails, and provided professional feedback. I had tried dealing with a few other real estate agents before her, and all of them were quite disappointing. I am glad I chose her at a time I was ready to give up buying. Thanks Carla Martin!

I honestly couldn't have asked for a more amazing and helpful person than Carla. Carla and everyone she recommended were a pleasure to work with, and made this very big and scary step in my life feel very safe and enjoyable.

Carla went above and beyond in what I consider to be the craziest real estate transaction ever! Between the seller's agent quitting, and my lender being challenging, Carla kept us calm and on the right track. She was awesome!

Carla was absolutely awesome to work with and I would highly recommend her for your real estate needs. She was extremely dedicated to stick with me to find the perfect property, which was a little challenging considering I lived in the bay area and was searching for a property for my son in the Sacramento/Carmichael area. She researched properties for me, so when I did travel out to Sacramento I was not wasting time looking at properties that were not what I was looking for. Thank you Carla, and my son Mark said he loves the townhouse!

Thank you for a wonderful transaction. I'm so happy everyone is excited and worked so well together to get this closed. I needed a transaction like this, and this was perfect for all. The sellers were so grateful for your buyer, it's nice to sell your home that you love to someone who feels so good about it as well. Carla, you were a blessing and it really makes you appreciate transactions like this that go so smooth. I hope to do another with you sometime in the future.

I enjoyed working with you and hope we'll have the pleasure to work together again soon.
