Testimonials (20)

Working with Carola was an absolute delight. We were uncertain about with our next home destination, and in consultation with Carola and her wonderful team (including Jane), we were able to narrow down our focus, look for opportunities we didn't think we had, and be guided to the right purchase at the right time. Carola could not have been more patient, more understanding, or more involved, because she was there with us the whole time, from the uncertain start to the wonderful finish. She is skilled, knowledgeable, easy to talk with and down to earth; we recommend her highly. As well, it was always clear that she had the superb support of her team at Julia B. Fee/Sotheby's in Larchmont, notably from Jane Murray. Bravo to Carola. If this allowed for more than five stars, she would get them easily. Will and Ali
Thanks so much for all your help! I finally have the place of my dreams after looking for what felt like forever. Carola is amazing! I am grateful to her for everything she’s done for me and my family. Thank you all for your help. Osaze Olumhense
Carola is a dedicated professional in this field. She understands the technical aspects of the business and pays great attention to customers' needs. She found the perfect apartment I needed for my mother 13 years ago, and she now found exactly the tenants I was expecting. Most importantly, Carola is warm and compassionate, ready to serve her clients. I hope she will be present at my future closings. Arangelo Lubrano
It is hard to believe I closed on a house on 3/18/22, just over two years after I first met Carola to check out what be the first of many, many, many homes in Westchester County. What works well about Carola is her indisputable devotion to clients, and helping them get what they want from their home. She is focused, determined, and fast. I never felt that Carola was just trying to sell me property as quickly as possible; she always had a balanced and thoughtful perspective about the different offers I extended. I highly recommend Carola to anyone who is looking to purchase a home! Anupam Samanta
Carola did an outstanding job selling our home we would highly recommend her. Jeff and Raelin Kantor

Great service, warm and thoughtful agents. Spirion Christoforatos
Carola Schonander recently represented us for the sale of our home at 42 Mayhew Avenue, Larchmont. Never in the numerous times that I have bought and sold houses have I ever had a sale or purchase go without a glitch - until now. From start to finish Carola was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Her marketing brought us our buyer within three hours of listing the property and she skillfully navigated some potential impediment s to the sale. Not to mention Carola negotiating an unbelievable sale price. In short, the highest evaluation we give in the Marine Corps is "Outstanding." This is not a word taken lightly or bestowed frequently.  Carola's performance was nothing short of Outstanding. Thank you for the great team effort. Jerome & Gail
Carola was very patient with me and my wife. We're a young couples moving from the city. We didn't know alot about process of purchasing a house. It was so stressful, there were days where we weren't able to sleep. We would call Carola for everything and she always had answers for us. Many things were happening at once and we weren't able to handle them and Carola was there to help us. We viewed 5 houses and she always said " if you don't like this, we'll move to the next." She wasn't presurring us into buying a property we didn't like. She was honest on each house viewed. We recommended Carola to my friends and I strongly recommend her to anybody who is looking to purchase any properties. She was a blast to work with and i'm sure you'll be too! Matt
We started working with Carola almost two years ago when we were looking for a place to rent in the Mamaroneck area. She found us a great temporary rental and when it came time to help us find a house, she took out a lot of time to show us many houses. We finally found a home we love, and we are moving in soon! Carola was very helpful to work with through the whole process, and we feel we have built a great relationship with her should we need her services again in the future. Thank you so much Carola! Akash and Nisha P.
Thank you for your participation in the completion of this sale. From the beginning I had little idea of what would be involved, I had the house appraised by a professional appraiser. The selling price you recommended was very close to that appraisal, and the price we got proved you to be accurate. Your presentations in print were admirable. Your presentations in person were not only admirable but considerate, always arranging them to be of no personal inconvenience to me personally. Considering the result, said presentations obviously did what they were meant to. I thank you for making this process, now completed, easy for me and well within the time frame I had set my mind on. Allan P.
Carola, besides finding a new friend, it was a pleasure working with you. As you know, selling or buying a home can be a very stressful experience. Your knowledge, expertise and especially your enthusiasm made selling our home a stress-free transaction. Cabrine and Michael C.
Thank you for all your great work! We really appreciate your help making the process as fast and smooth as possible. Cindy & Shane
Carola is a pleasure to work with! My girlfriend and I attended an open house hosted by Carola and fell in love with the apartment due to both its charm and location. Carola’s hospitality made making an offer day of an absolute no brainer. We then met with her and our landlord to sign the lease agreement. Carola ensured we had all the proper documentation necessary to comply with our buildings rules and regulations. She even scheduled our interview with the buildings co-op board. When we ultimately moved into our apartment we were greeted by a note welcoming us home, and telling us about a pre-made dinner she had left for us in the fridge to celebrate our first night in our new home. Truly five star service. We look forward to working with her to secure our next home. Sean L.
Would never use another realtor. Carola not only found us our first rental house, but she introduced us to the area and really helped us get up to speed with advice about schools and doctors etc. A couple of years later when we bought in the area she got us through a very tough sale, sticking with us throughout. Simon
Carola patiently helped us from realizing what we wanted with a house to identifying a house we wanted. She was especially patient with my wife who speaks English as her second language. Carola is very experienced and has a deep network of industry contacts and peers, along with Sotheby's resources at her disposal. Carola was supportive of us not only during the purchase process but also helpful in addressing our concerns after purchase regarding items such as painting, touch-ups, and alterations. Tak A.
Carola & Tina are a dynamic duo! When I met Carola, I said to myself this is the magical human who will help me find my dream house. I had 30 days to find the best rental for myself and four small kids. We spent one full day visiting a proper list of rentals. All wonderful options, in my price point, in my desired neighborhood, and within my aesthetic aspirations. When I walked into one of the listings I looked at Carola and said, this is it. This is my new home. Carola and Tina then teamed up and gracefully, but aggressively jumped leaps and bounds to get me not only approved but in my new home in less than 15 days! Simply amazing! Carola...Tina... Thank you! Nicole
Carola is the best! She is very knowledgeable, very charming and always there for your needs. Carola recently helped us find our first home. Thanks to her professionalism, the process was really smooth. She was on top of everything making sure things went on the right direction. We will definitely work with her on our next purchase. Ferreira C.
In 2010 when we moved to Westchester County, Carola helped us find our home in such a kind and helpful way. So much so, that we kept in contact over the 8 years we lived in that house. When the time came to move once again, we would not choose anyone other than Carola. From the very beginning of the sale to the end, she helped us define the best strategies. She managed all aspects of the sale and we are very happy that we trusted her advice along the way. We accepted an offer above our asking price within 9 days of listing. Her network of contacts and support structure also aided us for the closing since we had already moved away by the time all the paperwork was done. She helped us in every single aspect of the process and went the extra mile while we were away. We would wholeheartedly recommend Carola to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Westchester County. Erica & Miguel
We really enjoyed working closely with Carola to find our house. She understood what we were looking for in a home with a growing family, and it was easy to relate to her as a fellow parent. The process of finding a house can be stressful, but working with Carola made the process smoother. We would highly recommend her! Thank you! Nikki and Milos
