Carrie Trimmer is an experienced agent with a wealth of knowledge about the intricacies of buying selling real estate in Oakland and the surrounding areas. Carrie specializes in working with buyers, sellers, and investors approaching real estate from a right-and left-brain perspective, as comfortable suggesting remodeling ideas as she is with crunching numbers. She’s a no-nonsense realtor who doesn’t tell you what you want to hear, she tells you what you need to know to be successful in a market that’s fast-paced, challenging, and competitive. A product of two educators, she’s eager to help Real Estate students get a successful start in their businesses, as mentoring and teaching are important values for her.
Prior to obtaining her real estate license in 2014, Carrie was a licensing executive at a top 10 cable network and a marketing director at a Fortune 50 company. She negotiated contracts and worked closely with companies such as Activision, Audible, Victoria’s Secret and Donna Karan to bring licensed products to market.
Originally from the East Coast, Carrie has lived in the Bay Area for nearly 20 years, and it’s now her permanent home. She enjoys helping other transplants as well as locals find their “right place”, whether that’s buying a first home or selling a home that’s no longer the right fit for her clients.
