Carla Barnard taught a business newbie, like me, how to spot an up-and-coming commercial district, as well as the benefits of a current business hot spot. She taught me to check the adjacent businesses to see if they would bring in my type of customers. She kept my rental limit in mind and when she showed a property; and she could look around and immediately give me a list of pros and cons. She asked pertinent questions from the landlords that we met. Her communication was clear and timely. In other words, she took care of me. Her experience was evident. It’s been well over a year since I worked with her, but she reached out at the beginning of the COVID shut-down and helped negotiate payment with my landlord. She took care of me again. Carla builds true customer-centered business relationships and I can trust her.

Carla & Company Testimonial | Hannah Cosner

We could not have found a better commercial real estate agent than Carla. Her abundant charm, quick wit, and brilliant negotiation skills are the triple threat that all business owners dream of. She is earnestly invested in our well-being and has held our hand through the entire process of building our restaurant. We honestly would not be where we are today if it were not for her.

Helped us negotiate two leases and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Her attention to detail, ability to pick up subtleties that might be overlooked by an untrained eye, and willingness to work at any time, anywhere are all reasons we trust Carla and her team at every step of the way. Carla is willing to help you push to get what’s fair. We couldn’t have done any of this without Carla’s help and she will continue to be the first person we call with questions in the future.
