    Sold a Single Family home in 2018 in Niskayuna, NY.

Carolyn had been very professional and helpful through out the process of my recent deal. We had visited more than 10 properties before we made up our mind to take my current home, during which she was very patient and never pushed me to make any decision in rush. Instead she would explain me the pros and cons of the property and the potential value of the property in a re-sale market. She is a very detailed agent who will make every effort she could to make every visit to property an impressive one. It actually became a learning journey for a new home seeker like me.

While searching for properties, I continuously got short listed properties that fall within my budget from Carolyn. The experience actually helped me a lot to build a sense of the market quickly. After I put my offer, Carolyn recommended a house inspection and attorney service to me, both of them are pretty helpful and none of them pushed me to any extra service that I don't think is necessary. After the closing, Carolyn also updated me about a lot of helpful info, such as handy man for minor fixing. Appreciate, especially for a new home owner like me. In summary, I am pretty confident that Carolyn would be a good choice for you to help you to find your dream home! 03/05/2018 - duanzhy

Bought a Single Family home in 2017 in Delmar, Delmar, NY.

Carolyn Luke loves helping clients with relocation needs and works with both buyers and sellers. Her expertise in property management is a bonus for buyers interested in investment properties, too. Carolyn likes to simplify the buying and selling process, which she understands can be overwhelming and is there every step of the way to help clients through it. She would love to help you find the home of your dreams and make it yours. Carolyn is very nice and easy to work with. She is also very responsible and honest. She often pointed out the issues with the houses that we might overlook during house showing. She helped us with the concerns we have before making offer. She didn't push us to make offers. After three months house hunting, she finally helped us to find a house within our budget. And we love it. I would definitely recommend Carolyn to anyone who is planning to do house hunting in the Albany Capital region.

Carolyn is the sweetest, but don't be fooled- she is assertive and gets you what you want. She listened very carefully to everything I wanted and made sure I got it, always keeping my best interest at heart.

I can't say enough about how grateful my wife and I were for having Carolyn by our side. She was quick to respond to our emails, texts and phone calls. She provided us all of the information that we needed to make an informed decision, and she was never pushy at all. She made it very clear that she wanted what was best for our family.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Delmar, Delmar, NY.

Carolyn recently helped us find a new house for our family. I had a long list of things I was looking for in a new house which made finding the perfect house very difficult. Carolyn was so patient throughout the entire process. Carolyn not only helped us buy a perfect house for our family at a great price, but she sold our house in 5 days for over the asking price. It was a win win!!!

Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $375K in Schenectady, NY.

I can tell you that being a first time home buyer can be extremely confusing and stressful if you are not working with the right people. With that said, being completely lost in the dark in the early stages of looking for a home, we found Carolyn who took us under her wing and with honesty, integrity and superior intelligence, helped us find the PERFECT home based on our criteria. There were times in the early stages due to excitement that we were ready to pull the trigger on a few houses that thanks to her honest guidance we did not. She could have easily sold us a home that would have benefited her commission greatly, but from the very beginning she laid it out for both me and my wife, told us she was going to find us the RIGHT home and that's exactly what she did. If you are looking for a new home, selling and old, or both. Get in touch with Carolyn now, she will literally go above and beyond for you. i NEVER write reviews, but i would be re missed not to in this case. Top Realtor in the Capitol Region, hands down

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $225K in Cohoes, NY.

Negotiated three homes for me. Two purchases (one fell through, which was ok because found an even better home) and a quick sale. Great agent to work with through the process. Not pushy. Very calm and easy.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Cohoes, NY.

My husband and I worked with Carolyn Luke for two years to find a home that we really wanted. During that time she showed us the utmost respect via prompt communication, very personalized care, even on weekends, to answer our questions. My husband and I both have unusual work schedules and she was amazingly accommodating with our schedules, even helping us find a home in Saratoga County when she primarily works out of Latham.

I found Carolyn through a friend who also purchased a home with her help. As first time home owners in New York State, Carolyn's knowledge and expertise gave us many valuable insights into buying a home. She also has the experience of knowing the area and many references for other home buying services that are necessary, such as who do you choose for septic service, how do I find a lawyer who takes care of real estate law or who would you recommend to do your home inspection? We could not have found the home we were looking for without her help!

I will admit I am a very picky person when it comes to where I'm going to live and how I'm going to invest my money. I thought that Carolyn went above and beyond to help us find the home we really wanted. In my opinion it's not just about selling real estate to Carolyn. It's about helping someone to create their dream into reality by patiently listening to what the customer wants in a home. I am very grateful we met Carolyn Luke and if you choose to utilize her services, you will be too.

Bought a home in 2015 in Huletts Landing, Hague, NY 12841.

Being an out of town buyer I had to count on Carolyn to do almost everything for me such as attending the inspection, dealing with the small and extra negotions, doing the walk through, etc. Carolyn was always there for me and responded immediately when I had a question or issue, even the sellers loved her and bent over backward to accommodate our needs.I would recommend Carolyn to my friends if they needed real estate help. As a matter of fact a fried of mine who purchased 2 homes using Carolyn recommended her to me. She is a real estate treasure which is hard to find.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $275K in Lansingburgh, Troy, NY.

Carolyn came prepared starting with our first visit... with facts, figures, and comps from our area. She hit the nail on the head with her pricing, and ultimately negotiated and got us the best price for our home. We were under contract with in a week and a half and her follow up was immediate on every detail. I Highly recommend Carolyn for ANY of your Real Estate needs in the Capitol District.

Sold a home in 2014 in Haynersville, Wynantskill, NY 12180.

What is there, not to say, about Carolyn Luke, she has the ability to know when to move forward; and yet, move back at the correct time during negotiations. We have purchased two homes from her ; and she found for us an excellent tenant for the first home we purchased when we decided to purchase a second home. We highly recommend anyone looking for their dream house to seek her out.

Sold a home in 2013.

I would recommend Carolyn to anyone in the market to purchase or sell a home. She handled both selling my home and helping me to locate a new home in the capital district. Buying and selling a home are two of the most stressful events I have ever had to go through and I can honestly say that without Carolyn I would not have been able to survive. I had heard many horror stories about real estate agents from friends who recently went through the process. Carolyn exceeded my expectations and went above and beyond what would be required. She always responded to emails, texts and phone calls immediately, even when she was out of state! She assisted behind the scenes to assure smooth closings and was ALWAYS concerned with my best interests. She made a really stressful process not so scary and I could not have done it without her.

Carolyn is all about looking out for your best interest whether you are selling or buying. She is always accessible and is willing to work around your schedule to accommodate today's busy lifestyles.

Showed home in 2014 in Town of Colonie, NY.

Carolyn worked hard to get our house sold. She did an excellent job of marketing our house and we ended up with a tremendous number showings. One of the ways she accomplished this was to take her time when she photographed our home. Many brokers quickly take a picture and don't spend the time figuring out the best feature of each room like Carolyn did. She makes sure your house looks its best online and in her brochures. This is important since many potential buyers search online. She is dedicated to her clients and is in frequent contact with you. I would recommend her to friends and family.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $300K in Rensselaer, NY.

Carolyn was a Godsend! My wife and I used her services in 2011 when we purchased our first home together. The process was harrowing -- not made easier by the fact that my nervousness is enough to drive anyone crazy! -- but Carolyn was there with us every step of the way. We have recommended her to everyone we know who is in the market to buy a home.

Carolyn Luke is a great Realtor, but even more importantly, a good friend. We can't recommend her highly enough!

Bought a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in East Greenbush, NY.

Carolyn was kind, compassionate, and patient with me as we searched for a home for me in this area. She understood how worried I was about selling my property in RI and was always upbeat. She searched all properties for months and we looked for months. When my home in RI sold we hit the ground running and found the perfect place. She was with me every step and I will never forget her. I have recommended her to many. I am happy to call her my friend.

Carolyn Luke did an excellent job selling our home during the worse selling market. She worked hard highlighting the features of our home to potential buyers. She followed up with everyone that walked through, obtaining feedback. Once we had a buyer, she kept everyone on task to ensure a smooth transaction.

We highly recommend Carolyn Luke as your selling agent.
