We just closed the sale of our home and I wanted to make a strong recommendation for Jennifer Jones and Carrie McAlister of Calia Homes for anyone who is planning to buy or sell in the Bay area. Carrie was our realtor in 2019 when we bought our home and was such a fantastic partner that we never considered working with anyone else for the sale. She and Jennifer were an incredibly effective team in managi...

Carrie and Jennifer were instrumental in helping us find a dream home in Oakland, and we highly recommend working with them! They are knowledgeable, trustworthy, well respected in the realtor community, realistic, and fun. They helped us explore different neighborhoods that aligned with our top priorities and were a great sounding board and teachers throughout the process. They also flagged and went to b...

After moving our parents into assisted living, my siblings and I were selling our family home in the Oakland Hills. This was a long-distance affair since we live in Southern California. We came to the Bay Area and met several real estate agents, and Carrie was the only one who arrived with a list of comps, a marketing plan, a timeline, and a wonderfully warm personality. She listened to our concerns and ...

Carrie McAlister is a phenomenal real estate agent! After parting ways with another agent, we started working with her a few months ago. We were looking for someone knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly, someone who would go the extra mile to find our dream home. My husband and I are busy professionals and have a young baby. We didn’t have time to scour listing sites or MLS several times a da...

I would recommend Carrie McAlister to anyone selling a home in the bay area. My husband and I were living in another state while trying to sell our North Berkeley home, and she did a fantastic job. We only came out to the house once – she took care of everything else and coordinated with all the contractors/service people without needing anything from us. She is by far the best Realtor® we’ve ever used, ...

We are extremely pleased with our decision to contract Carrie as our listing agent. She made the experience of selling our condo effortless and stress-free. At our very first meeting, she planned a timeline for the entire process from escrow to close. We took a two-week vacation and left everything to Carrie. After less than two weeks on the market, we received multiple offers well above the asking price...

"Carrie's core professional capacities for negotiation, diligence, objectivity, and clear communication -- combined with an excellent general business sense -- clearly distinguish her from most agents.

Carrie is quite remarkable for her confidence, social grace, and thoughtful human interactions.

In short, she’s just good people. She built a strong rapport with our two-year-old son, which made things that much easier for two working parents. Without reservation, we give Carrie our wholehearted endorsement."

Marciana & Stephen, Oakland


"Carrie helped us to get through the complex sales process, and was a pleasure to work with throughout. 

We received multiple offers and the home was sold at well over the asking price. The process was smooth from beginning to end. We are certain that this success was due to the expertise of our agent.

We highly recommend Carrie McAlister to anyone looking to list their home for a professional and dedicated Realtor."

Theresa, Rockridge


"Throughout the pre-sale preparation, pricing and marketing processes, she helped us to focus on projects that would help us maximize the sales value of our home. In the end, we attained multiple offers and sold notably over our asking price. We attribute our successful sale to Carrie’s business acumen and negotiating skills.

We continue to call on Carrie’s know-how and resources with questions about local ordinances and contractor referrals. She has always been readily available to assist. For this and much more, we highly recommend the services of Carrie McAlister."

Stacey & Michael, North Berkeley


"Carrie was an absolute pleasure to work with. In preparing our home for sale we had very tight deadlines for all parties involved (stagers, contractors, inspectors) and she made sure that all proceeded in accordance with our set schedule.

Our first (and only!) Open House was a great success and brought in multiple offers. She kept us informed and up-to-date throughout the various stages of selling our home which put us at ease and kept the process going along very smoothly. We were very happy with the outcome and wholeheartedly would recommend Carrie to anyone who is looking for a very professional and dedicated Realtor."

Andreas & Naru, Berkeley


"I recommend Carrie McAlister without qualification. She was extremely professional, good humored, stayed in touch by email and phone, and was great to work with.

Do yourself a favor and hire her."

Josh, Berkeley


"I give my full endorsement to Carrie McAlister, the real estate agent who helped me find the house of my dreams.

Carrie patiently walked me (a first-time home buyer) through the process. During the search I was most impressed with how well she listened to my needs regarding location, size, amenities, etc. Carrie was professional, thorough, and a pleasure to work with."
