Christina K., Realtor

“I have been working with Carissa for over a year now and I regard her highly as one of the best I have to recommend. Always active in the Sonoma County community, Carissa is vigilant in keeping up with the industry and being sure to read up on potential changes in lending requirements and making sure clients are as versed with the changes as she is.

She listens to the needs of the borrower and she carefully matches the right loan product to accomplish the desired objectives. She communicates throughout the process to guarantee that there are no surprises. Most importantly, she carefully monitors each and every transaction to ensure that everything is delivered in a prompt and accurate fashion. The result is a smooth closing every time. I can personally attest to the fact that her closings are truly pleasant experiences. With every transaction, the borrowers are fully informed, the loan products are as promised and the closing are timely.

The clients that I’ve sent to Carissa for a mortgage have spoken highly of her professionalism and dedication. I have no doubt that any future clients I send her way would say the same! In our business, we cannot steer a buyer to a specific lender, but I offer prospective clients lenders that I can trust and am always sure to let them know Carissa Abazia will get their mortgage for them!”

When we finally found our home, the process went relatively smoothly, and fast. We truly felt we had someone on our team that wanted us to win.  Thank you!”
