Carrie Benuska has been refining the art of real estate sales for more than a decade successfully helping a long list of buyers and sellers reach their goals. Drawing on her background in industrial engineering and her gift for developing and enacting strategic plans, she works diligently and effectively to help her clients reap the financial and emotional benefits of home ownership.

Carrie delights in helping buyers make smart purchases that will help them meet their long-term goals as they profit from home ownership. Her knowledge of Pasadena and the surrounding communities, combined with her passion for home improvement, are valuable resources for them. Even in a challenging seller’s market, Carrie knows what it takes to write a winning offer and persists until her clients have successfully bought their dream home.

Carrie’s strategic skills are on full display when she helps sellers navigate the process of preparing, marketing, and selling their homes. Her skill in packaging a home to appeal to its target buyer pool leads to quick and profitable sales. While Carrie and her dedicated team roll up their own sleeves for this task, they also collaborate with local artists, interior designers, and staging professionals to ensure every listing looks fabulous. Then her creative and data-driven marketing gets maximum exposure for her listings and creates a buzz in the marketplace.

After overseeing so many successful sales and renovating several homes of her own, Carrie has a passion for home improvement with selling in mind. She regularly consults with area homeowners to help them develop plans for a future sale. With an eye to minimizing costs and maximizing impact, she creates a room-by-room plan, along with suggested resources, that can be enacted over time.

Outside of work, Carrie is passionate about children’s literacy and partners with organizations like the Pasadena Unified School District to encourage kids to read. Each year, she recruits nearly 100 Realtors to read aloud to PUSD students at an event she founded called Realtors Read Across PASadena. In addition, she has twice raised funds from the local real estate community to buy a summer reading book for every second grader in the district.

Carrie’s energetic personality and commitment make her a constructive member of the community she shares with her clients and a valuable resource for anyone looking to successfully buy or sell a home.

Reviews

Real Estate Agent Extraordinaire! We were out of town buyers and needed someone with inside expertise. My husband recalled her column in the local San Marino newspaper and said let's try her! Responsive, personal, tireless, determined but mostly, wise. We endured a couple of disappointments and due to her intuitive and honest opinions of our circumstances, we now have the perfect home for us! Carrie, we are forever grateful for your professional care and personal touch.
-
Carrie helped our family look for and FIND the perfect home! She took the time to share with us specific homes in specific neighborhoods that she knew we would find attractive because she took the time to listen to EXACTLY what we we were looking for. She was patient when we had troubles with our lender and actually even gave us a few other options (although it ultimately became unnecessary) to procure our loan. We could not have done it without her expertise and local knowledge.
-
Carrie did a fantastic job for us in buying a loft downtown. She found exactly what we wanted and helped us get the right price! She worked with us closely throughout the process. She is a joy to work with. We highly recommend her.
-
Carrie has represented my wife and I for over 8 years on three separate transactions and each carried out flawlessly to our satisfaction. Carrie is very responsive, innovative, and always had our best interest in mind. She was professional and used her experience in negotiations as we purchased and sold properties in down and up markets - all of which done on time and closed without any issues. I would highly recommend Carrie to others and let her show you what she can do. Carrie is the best.
-
Carrie helped me and my husband find our first home in Los Angeles. We had just moved back from New York, and were looking to buy a home. We looked all over the LA area. West LA, Miracle Mile, and then Downtown LA. She was very helpful and knowledgable about all the areas. She ended up finding us a beautiful brand new loft in Downtown LA that we fell in love with.Carrie is very responsive, helpful, and has a great personality. It was so fun to work with her. I would really recommend working with Carrie, whether it's to sell your home or if you need to buy. She'll listen to what you want and not stop until you are happy. She even sent us a bottle of champagne after we closed. So thoughtful!
-
We had been renting for years and Carrie walked us through buying our first home. Carrie was great!! I'd recommend her for anyone in and around Pasadena for buying a home. She's so great, responsive, and authentic. I appreciated her candor and honesty most. We're very happy and her negotiation was flawless.
-
Carrie was amazing at helping us (finally) get a wonderful house. Our purchase was contingent on the sale of our house - which almost never happens anymore. She was a champion at negotiating our deal and was incredible at managing the timing of both our purchase and sale. She was prompt at getting signatures and very responsive in her communication. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
-
Carrie Benuska is a wonderful realtor! Buying and selling can be very stressful, however Carrie is great at putting you at ease and problem solving to no end!!! An amazing communicator, always available and trustworthy! She seeks the best for her clients and goes the distance.
-
Carrie helped both sell and buy our home and was fabulous to work with. I'd highly recommend her. She was patient, creative, and met our unique situation with lots of ideas and hard work.
-
Carrie was fabulous to work with. She understood our needs and was honest with us about what was available to us and what was best for our growing family. I would recommend Carrie to anyone looking for a home in the Greater Pasadena area.
