Client Testimonials

"Carla Whitten made our first house buying endeavor a success and absolute pleasure. Carla took the time to get to know us and learn about our preferences. She was incredibly patient with us as we learned about location, availability of houses, and all the steps involved in the process. Her depth of knowledge on almost any related topic never ceased to amaze us. Carla has excellent interpersonal skills, which not only made working with her so easy but also made for extremely smooth engagement with the sellers. As out of town buyers, she went the extra mile to help us manage the process throughout. We are thrilled with our purchase and credit Carla for her outstanding professionalism, dedication, expertise and local knowledge."
Ms. Karine W.


"Carla is the best realtor ever! She always think about us and help us find the best solutions. She is also good at communication. I would strongly recommend Carla as your realtor."

Mr. Godtoyliu


"Carla has a thorough knowledge of the market, sage advice, and also goes above and beyond in assisting her clients. I have recommended her to colleagues and they have all thanked me for connecting them. We recently asked Carla to help with the purchase of a one-bedroom condo for our daughter (she was our real estate agent for our own condo purchase several years ago). There were some complexities created by my work travel, but Carla kept things moving so that we could close in time. We couldn't have done this without her!"
Ms. Karen Mossberger


"Carla is a wonderful agent to work with! We have a rental property and have been working with Carla for the past five years. She always finds us excellent, well qualified tenants. She knows the market extremely well and handles everything for us in a very professional manner. We couldn't ask for a better agent and highly recommend Carla for any real estate transactions you may have. A+++"

Ms. Kim C.


I have worked with Carla for more than a decade and in each case, she has performed at the highest possible level. Her strong suit is a dogged determination that leads her to stay on top of every important item, step or detail in the selling/buying process. Among other laudable qualities: she listens patiently to your concerns, is not afraid to offer direct advice that will benefit a client, works well with all other parties (agents, brokers, loan officers, title companies), jumps in to handle physical work when necessary, and offers constant assurance that things will work out to her client's advantage. And they do! I highly recommend her professional services. - Michael Bartlett


We were referred to Carla from a professional colleague. We were moving from Denver, CO and had no idea where to begin. From the beginning Carla was so helpful and informative. We began our search in February and worked with her until we closed on our house in June. She guided us every step of the way. We began our search by narrowing down areas and cities that were convenient for both our jobs. She was so patient and walked us through the locations that would save us time on our daily commute to ensure our time was spent with each other at home and not on the road daily. After narrowing down our first search we began to look at properties that met our needs and were a good fit. After looking at several homes, sometimes twice. We are happy to say she helped us find our dream house! She was always available for our phone calls and emails and responded promptly. She always explained what was happening throughout the process and made sure we understood exactly what was happening at each step. I can truly say she made this process as easy as it could be. We are so grateful for all of her help. We highly recommend her if you are looking to purchase a new home. She really is genuinely interested in helping her clients and ensuring they get the best house for them! Thank you Carla!

Working with Carla was a wonderful experience. She is helpful, hard-working, and exceptionally detail-oriented. She helped me stage my home for sale and deal with some repairs - she has a wonderful list of contractors and service people, all of whom were fantastic. She worked hard to sell it and guide me through the negotiations and paperwork. She explained all of the steps in both buying and selling. She helped me find the perfect new home. She really knows the area and understood exactly what I wanted in a new home and neighborhood. She also saved me from buying a home with major hidden problems by doing some thorough checks on the property. And she kept my spirits up during the sometimes challenging process! I will definitely work with Carla in any future transactions!

-Client of Carla


I was so very fortunate to have been referred to Carla Whitten from the beginning… She has a GREAT crew who prepared my home for sale, and very shortly thereafter I had a great and motivated buyer. Desert Ridge is a very familiar area for her. My new home was the first house I looked at. I made an offer the same day and 2 days later, it was accepted. Carla was there with me for every single step of both transactions. She knew the importance of getting my original home sold quickly and worked feverishly to do just that. Carla even helped me to update a few things in my new home. Carla is not only an incredibleRealtor, she was such a huge help in finding plumbers, painters, granite installers, anyone I needed to help me feel at home here. I feel my transition from one part of my life to another would not have been the same without Carla's help. I highly recommend her for all your realty needs. She takes the time to work with you and understands your needs.

I have been working with Carla Whitten for the past year to find a home in Scottsdale. She has been an invaluable tool and a wonderful friend. She is a pleasant person with whom to work and she is so very knowledgeable of the area she presents. If she is unfamiliar with something I asked about, she found out and was able to give me an answer. She showed me the full range of places in the section in which I was interested as well as other areas I had no knowledge. She immediately grasped what I wanted and gave me ideas. She has been so very helpful. After I decided and made a down payment, she continued to stick by me following it through to the end. She is excellent. I have worked with many agents over the years, having purchased four homes, and she is the best I have had the pleasure to work. I cannot recommend her more fully. By the way, I had been through two other agents before I found her. I am not an easy person with whom to work.
-Ellen Shreve

We are currently involved in our 5th real estate transaction with Carla so that in itself is a huge recommendation. In preparing to sell our 1st house in North Scottsdale, we decided to call Carla based on continually hearing and seeing her name. What we found was a professional who knows the area and the business literally from the ground up. Carla listens to your thoughts and your goals in buying or selling. She will share her knowledge not to correct you but give you all the information to help you make the best decision . I have never worked with an agent who knows the trends of the market and the financial ends as well as Carla. If complete awareness of the area, being a great mathematician, and a fabulous negotiator isn't enough, consider her thorough understanding of construction and what makes a house more than a "pretty face".
-Pam VonSchoeler

It is our immense pleasure to recommend Carla Whitten as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. The birth of our son made us realize that we needed a larger home and fast. Carla had an initial meeting with us and took notes regarding our specific needs in a single family home along with our budgetary limitations. She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find us a variety of homes for sale that met our criteria. She knows Scottsdale like the back of her hand. Once we found the home we wanted to buy, Carla came up with a deal that was great for us and made the seller happy as well.

We found Carla to be a highly attentive agent and detailed oriented. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality. We are pleased to recommend Carla Whitten to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice in real estate agents.

-Jessica and Colin Rice

My husband and I are both picky and idiosyncratic. Carla took the time to listen to us, and did an amazing job identifying possibilities for us. Then, as we gave her feedback on the basis of those online choices, she further refined her search on our behalf. The result was that when my husband and I flew in to find a house, we were able to find our dream house in one day. The owners wanted a fast turnaround: Carla was also very helpful in guiding us through that process as well.. I do not hesitate to recommend her enthusiastically.
-M. Gaughan

Dear Carla,
This is a letter of appreciation. Monica and I have worked with realtors many times in the past and they have generally been helpful. However, we have never worked with a realtor who even came close to the quality of service you provided during our recent purchase of our new Tempe home. Your technical knowledge and understanding of local conditions was incredible. You consistently went out of your way to be helpful, even providing important information about questions that I did not know to ask. In addition to your remarkable level of expertise, we were also very impressed with the people you suggested for other roles, such as mortgage broker and home inspectors. Most important, we are extremely pleased with the outcome, finding a house we like very much from the thicket of 18 or 20 we looked at in your company. I am not sure we would have “won” our bidding war with four other buyers had we not had your skillful assistance and advice. On top of all this: a consistently pleasant, friendly and upbeat demeanor.
Thanks so much for your help! You can be sure that you will have our strongest recommendation to those who in the future ask us about real estate professionals.
-Barry Bozeman, Tempe

I’ve had the pleasure of referring clients to Carla Whitten and experiencing her amazing professional approach to every detail of both the listing and the sale. She is the agent who “makes it happen”, start to finish. My clients have been very impressed with her technical skills, making sure to keep everyone fully informed through the transaction. I’m looking forward to our next opportunity. Thanks, Carla, for your outstanding efforts.
-Sandy Mills

Carla Whitten goes above and beyond for her clients. She has handled our out of state sale with detail-oriented professionalism. Not only did she coordinate the repainting, carpeting, and staging to sell our home, but once we were under contract, she scheduled and met all of our repair people to complete our inspection punch list. Carla is warm, efficient, and dedicated. We have very much appreciated working with Carla, who is by far the best we’ve ever used.
-Karen and Steve Boswell

We found Carla extremely knowledgeable of the Scottsdale and surrounding areas which was very helpful to us being out-of-state buyers. She quickly narrowed down our home search based on our communication with her and her knowledge of current home inventory. Carla had excellent follow up with our sale, both during the negotiation process and during the final document/closing process. We highly recommend Carla to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent to assist them with a purchase in the Scottsdale area.
-Chuck Kirkham & Lynn Blair, Scottsdale

We first had contact with Carla in 1991 when we were searching for a lot to build our home in Scottsdale. Mission accomplished! Fast forward to 2009 and we hired Carla to sell our home as we wanted to downsize. We signed the papers, photos were taken, and the MLS listing went up over that following weekend. The very next Tuesday she had an open house for all their Russ Lyons agents. A lady from Canada and her agent from another agency were driving by and saw the activity. They came back alone and came back again w/ the husband. Home sold within a week! KUDOS to Carla for all her work and advice. She even had a stager come in who told us to ‘declutter’ which we did, then Caroline immediately pulled things back out and put them in different locations – what a difference that tiny change can make. Your smile can light up a room. Your knowledge of the market and area are invaluable. Carla, thank you so much for doing a great job. Should you be looking for a reputable person, I would highly recommend Carla.
-Mary Ann Glazer, Scottsdale

Carla is outstanding in every way as a real estate professional. She is the most knowledgeable person we have ever worked with and is exceptional in her attention to the details of the transaction. We have also introduced Carla to many friends who have used her services. Without exception, everyone has been extremely satisfied. We cannot recommend Carla highly enough as a real estate agent and as a person you would enjoy working with.
-Lloyd & Edite Robinson

Last year Carla helped us buy a home, sell a home and buy a lot in order to build in Estancia, she was always willing to help with details, to ensure a hassle free move into our new surroundings. Carla is bright, educated, articulate and efficient. We would not hesitate to recommend her to friends, we already have! Our friends have nothing but praise for Carla’s integrity and professionalism.
-Susan & John Kaiser, The Estancia Club, Scottsdale

You were responsible for finding the “perfect” lot for us. Your attention to detail even after the sale will not be forgotten. Thanks again for “going the extra mile” but the best thanks is the thanks we get from people to whom we have recommended you.
-Peter & Susan Baker, Windy Walk Estates at Troon Village


Carla Whitten came highly recommended to us and after our experience with her, we well understand why. Carla not only brings depth of knowledge and experience to the job, but great integrity. She is completely focused on the needs of her clients and this does not stop after the deal is made. She has remained a constant source of information, ideas and advice, always available when we need her.
-Susy & Bill Entringer, Glenn Moor at Troon Village

We found Carla Whitten to be most helpful in selling our house in exactly 60 days. She brought a skill set that included real estate expertise, attention to detail, great communication methods that included listening to the client, understanding the full process involved while having a positive attitude throughout. I think the outcome was especially positive as we took her advice on pricing our house, getting it ready to show, responding aggressively in handling issues brought forward by the buyer, and followed her suggestions during the negotiation process. Overall, it worked out very well.
-Bob Dalton


Carla was able to accurately translate my husband's and my (sometimes conflicting) wishlists to identify candidate properties for us to review. As out-of-towners moving from the East Coast, Carla set aside large blocks of time and efficiently coordinated marathon house visits during our brief visits to Phoenix. It was reassuring to know that she was looking after our interests and we could rely on both the responsiveness and quality of her advice. She smoothly guided the process from beginning to end, going beyond what we expected. Carla also knew so much about the Phoenix, Tempe, and Scottsdale areas! I can't imagine a better real estate experience.

-Client of Carla 


Carla was referred to us through a work colleague to help us find a rental property that met the needs of our family as we transitioned our careers from NYC to Phoenix. We needed a landlord that would take two 60# dogs as part of the lease agreement for a family with an infant and toddler. I flew to AZ in May 2015, and Carla picked me up at my hotel and took me to view list of properties throughout the Valley. She has a deep knowledge of the rental and for-sale market that made our move across the country easier. When it came time to purchase our own home, we didn't have to think twice about who we wanted as our buyer's agent. After dealing with only broker's and seller's agents in NYC, it was a relief to find someone who had our best interest at heart. We must have viewed over 50 homes over a period of more than six months before settling on a house that met our needs (SF, good schools, average commute, low crime, etc.). Carla was patient and informative as our interests shifted from the Encanto area of Phoenix to the Kierland area of Scottsdale. I would recommend Carla without reservation.
