Cari is the best agent we’ve worked with over two decades’ worth of real estate transactions, both buy and sell side. During our search for the right income property, she provided particularly valuable insight worthwhile improvements for each candidate property, negotiated with our interests at the forefront, and remained responsive throughout the search and purchase, and post-closing.
Negotiations are where agents most often fall down in our experience, when the desire to close on a transaction can have a hugely distorting and frustrating effect on client interest focus. Cari really excelled when we found the right property, from opening offer through inspection objection. She consistently provided grounded advice, even when it could cost her the deal, and I believe her friendly and diplomatic demeanor were key in helping us secure a deal with which we are very satisfied. Cari’s negotiating style clearly shows the strategic patience and goal-oriented focus that helped make her an elite competitive athlete.
Cari really goes above and beyond by providing her experience-based insight on renovations, which she puts her personal time towards offerings freely. So not only did we do well on the purchase of the property, but Cari helped us to improve it and save money in the process.
Cari’s sharp, strategic knowledge of the industry and the Boulder county real estate market combined with creativity and compassion is a unique skill set that distinguishes her as a top realtor. This combination of talents allows her to work effectively to find her clients the right fit and negotiate for their interests. And she has an impressive network of colleagues in the finance and other supportive sectors to help buyers and sellers move easily through the process.
She helped us find a fantastic starter home in a neighborhood that was still up and coming her intuition was spot on and she helped us win out over other buyers through smart bidding. She provides continued support through her newsletter full of useful homeowner tips ands continues to provide us advice as we look to perfect our fixer upper.
We could not be more pleased with her service and highly recommend her to everyone.
Cari knows Boulder like few others. We had a very short timeline and several difficult factors in selling and buying a new home. Cari handled it with speed and grace. Can’t recommend her highly enough.
My mother passed away, and we were moving my father to Boulder. We needed to sell our house in Martin Acres and find another bigger house in Boulder while on a short timeline. We had 4 dogs and 2 cats so selling our house and renting a place while we looked wasn't an option. We needed to sell and buy within a period that worked for all parties. Cari's handled all the things that came up with "rent back time", inspections, offers and counter offers perfectly to make sure we could move out of one house and right into the other.
We moved our little family to Colorado from New Jersey for a change in lifestyle and if a move across country is not stressful enough, we had to navigate tons of options to set up our new life. Cari immediately zeroed in on who we are and what we need, she just "gets it". Juggling neighborhoods, budgets, schools, and house types, Cari makes it seem easy. She was always on track, on time and nice to hang with while we looked around. We highly recommend Cari.
Cari has been a wonderful and patient partner during the 1-2 years it has taken us to dream, search, and purchase a new home. While we have lived in Boulder long enough to understand the market, Cari's advice about location and neighborhoods was still quite helpful. She was patient with us while we spent months browsing, and she was instrumental in helping us to craft a winning offer once we found the home that was our perfect match. We highly recommend Cari based on her positive attitude, enjoyable demeanor, and tenacity to get things done.
Cari was instrumental in helping our family find temporary and permanent housing when we decided to move to CO from Virginia. In a tough housing market she helped us find the perfect house in our budget even as I was losing hope that one existed. Her knowledge of the market and the area, coupled with her professional network and creative problem-solving makes her the perfect advocate for her clients. Cari listens and truly cares about meeting the needs of her clients, she does her homework and delivers.
Over four months of shopping, Cari became my housing market confidant. Along with her responsiveness and pro activity, what I appreciated most about working with her was how well she got to know my priorities and my style as a home buyer. She never made me feel any pressure to act when I wasn't comfortable, and when I eventually went to see the home I bought with her, we both knew it was the right fit for me.
Finding an income property around these parts is no easy feat, but thanks to Cari's hard work, diligence, enthusiasm, and patience, my husband and I closed on a duplex on April 7th. Cari was always a gracious tour guide, no matter how many houses I wanted to see, she would find a way to make it happen, and she was always available to answer questions. She made the whole process, dare I say, enjoyable. Thanks Cari.
As first time home buyers we did not even know where to begin. Cari was absolutely the best at taking us through the process and going out of her way to show and find us homes that we were interested in. I attribute our success in finding a home and getting our offer accepted to Cari's unique strength, local knowledge and connections. She is simply the best.
We had Cari Higgins sell our condo about a year ago, and it was a fantastic experience, and frankly the only positive experience with an agent I've ever had. She puts your needs and wants first, and will fight tooth and nail for what is best for you, not just what is easiest for her.
Cari is wonderful, very knowledgeable, and works really hard! She was the selling agent on our home and had our house under contract in two days. She worked closely with us on staging the property and was a pro at marketing. I highly recommend working with Cari.
As an out of state buyer I really wanted someone who knew the area and was responsive. Cari was GREAT to work with. I had complete trust in her knowledge, market understanding and ability to find a good value. I'd work with her again in a heartbeat.
My commitment to professionalism, my enthusiasm for this community, and my unique experience in the business fuels results for my clients.
