8 Florence Ave. Arlington

We had an excellent experience with Mark Carter for a rental two years ago. When it came time to look for our next home, we contacted Mark and Paula Carter first. We were really impressed by Paula's connection to the local community and how much she really cares about her clients. She went above and beyond to make sure the process was as seamless as possible.

- Stephanie & Chris, 2023

Paula was amazing! She went above and beyond to find us the
perfect house and we are super grateful for her help and support!

Paula worked extremely hard to make sure that everything was exactly how it should be prior to our closing. She was extremely precise and checked in with us every step of the way. We can't say enough excellent things about Paula!

I knew that the sale of our home by four siblings was going to be a challenge.

Paula provided the needed support and went above and beyond in helping us prepare the home for sale.

- The Lyons Family, 2022

This is our second time working with Paula and I would have no hesitation about working with her again/referring her to others. With Paula's help, we were able to both sell our current home and buy a new home that is perfect for us. Paula is not only hard-working and dedicated to helping others through the real estate process, but she is trustworthy and it's clear that she is looking out for her clients best interest.

Paula Viglirolo Carter was a pleasure to work with. She was very professional and made the whole stressful process of selling a home easier. Paula was very knowledgeable about the area and market value. The advertising was impressive and the condo sold quickly.
I would highly recommend Paula Carter to anyone looking for a realtor.

- Marta, 2022

Paula & Mark Carter were excellent. The Carters work very well together - as if they were not married 🙂 (joke) - It was a pleasure for my brother and I to work with them. Thank you!

Paula and Mark did a fantastic job helping me find and close on a home within my budget quickly (even during the COVID-19 real estate market!). They walked me through every step of the process as a first-time home buyer, and helped me feel confident in my decision. I will definitely be recommending them to friends and family in the future.

- Elizabeth, 2021

I felt extremely comfortable and didn’t have to second guess any advice given to me by Paula and Mark Carter. I couldn’t have imagined having better people helping me with such a difficult process of buying and selling a home. They really went above and beyond to help. Paula was available practically 24/7 and was on top of every question I had. Overall I couldn’t be happier with the exceptional service from Paula and would gladly recommend her to anyone searching for a new home!"

- Mark, Claudia & Kaia, 2020

Paula was TERRIFIC! Can't say enough positive things about her - was helpful in every step of the process, incredibly supportive and knowledgable, and made the process so easy!

- Collyn, 2020

We were on many agents lists during our search but Paula was great at setting our expectations and understanding the market. She stood out and we were very happy we committed to her. Once we found our home she was on top of every detail. So happy with her work and our new home.

- John, Terri, Nicole, & Sarah, 2019

Paula worked with us for 3 years, first when we were considering selling my mothers home, and in 2019 with us as we were looking for an opportunity in that neighborhood. She was very helpful.

My wife and I were married in May of 2017 and between the summer and winter of that year spent countless hours calculating, researching, and saving before we even set our sights on a realtor. We jumped into this world of real estate after renting for some time, unaware of all of the hoops one had to jump through, all of the codes, inspections, and checklists a buyer has to be aware of when they set foot in an open house. Needless to say, we felt overwhelmed. Then, along came Paula. Paula was the voice of reason; a crutch that we relied on throughout our search. She was reliable, warm, welcoming, and incredibly knowledgeable. Paula was honest and sincere and genuinely wanted what was best for us. With daily emails, texts, and Facebook shares, Paula expressed true dedication to us.

From the moment we signed on with her, we felt we were going to find our home and without her who knows where we would have ended up. Paula was there at every turn. She stuck with us at our most aggravating moments (quarrels regarding whimsical scenarios in we envisioned turning a fixer-upper into an episode of extreme makeover), and she celebrated with us at our highest of highs: when we finally found our home. Quite simply, our search was an overwhelming success, our home is everything that we could have asked for, and we cannot express how grateful we are for Paula Carter. She is simply the best.

- Dan & Erika, 2018

Had a great experience working with Paula to find our first home. She was always available to answer any questions we had as they came up in the home-buying process. Paula was always looking out for our best interest through the whole process, from when we were looking at houses to when we were closing on our current house. Would definitely recommend her to a friend 🙂

- Kristen & Colin, 2018

Dear Paula,

I want to thank you for all the work you did to help me get my dream home. There were a lot of ups and downs, but at the end of the day, I am very happy with my decision to buy.

I really appreciate everything you did to seal the deal, and also your patience and professionalism throughout the entire process.

I also wanted to thank you for the beautiful gift you gave me! I have no doubt that I will become a grill master very soon.

Not only were you my broker, but you also became my friend. I look forward to spending many fun times with you in the future.

When the time came for my sister and I to buy our first condo Paula was immediately the first person to come to both of our minds. She explained the process in and out and made sure we understood every single detail as first time homebuyers. She is very thorough and always professional - you can tell she loves what she does! We will absolutely be calling Paula for every future real estate endeavor we both have! 

- Karina & Liana, 2017

Paula & Mark were AMAZING! Very attentive to all of our needs, and were always available to answer our questions. This was a huge process for us as we lived in our first home for 25 years. They made it all seem so easy , and eased all of our worries and anxieties. We highly recommend this duo to help with ALL of your real estate needs. 

- Mike & Karen, 2021

Paula was absolutely instrumental in helping me find the perfect condo. She helped me narrow down the areas I wanted in the beginning, went to every open house with me, knew exactly what I wanted, and used her expert knowledge to help me buy an incredible condo in a very competitive sellers market. I am so grateful to Paula for the advice, professionalism, and care that she showed me throughout the entire process!

In April 2016, I decided to sell my Cambridge, MA condo. I knew I wanted to work with a local real estate group that had its finger on the pulse of Cambridge. My search led me to Channing Real Estate and ultimately to Meg Shea and Paula Carter.

They have a wonderful team approach and I knew as soon as I met with Meg and Paula, that I had a terrific team on my side. They were invaluable in helping set a realistic price and always prompt and professional when we met. I was confident they had my best interest at heart and knew their guidance was sincere. They were tireless behind the scene and happily took care of every detail that might have made me anxious. Meg and Paula were thoughtful of and empathetic to any concern I raised and always quick to respond.

Bottom line, I could absolutely count on them. They earned my trust immediately. A trust that was reinforced with every detail they handled. They took the time to get to know me as a person, my hopes and dreams and future plans. This is a true gift and a testament to their sincere interest in people, not just the sale. Channing Real Estate should take great pride in Meg and Paula. They are representing the agency with their highest standard. I am very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with and get to know them both!
