"We chose Carol as our realtor after meeting her on a walk in our Leisure World neighborhood. We liked her immediately and had a positive experience both selling one property and purchasing another.
Carol was responsive to phone calls and texts and when she didn’t have answers, she researched the issue and responded in record time. She never pressured us and and kept us informed of new listings.
We highly recommend Carol for either selling or purchasing a Leisure World property. You will be pleased with the results."
"Carol knew her stuff. She pretty much handled every aspect of the sell. I only had to be informed, decide, and sign!"
"Great handling of the transaction - very professional and helpful - would recommend Carol to anyone in need of such services"
"I just wanted to thank you for handling the sale of my mom’s property. You truly made the experience seamless and after losing my mom, my thoughts were not on the details of handling the estate so I’m grateful for you taking the reigns and relieving one area of and otherwise grieving experience.
You're the Best!"
"Thank you for being an amazing realtor for my sister, Freddie Hawkins. You have been an amazing blessing. You were the perfect person to guide my sister and me through a very difficult process of selling her condo. You were so patient and courteous and very professional throughout this process. You went beyond the "call of duty" to make this process easy for us but I'm sure not so easy for you. I would recommend you to absolutely anyone who needs a realtor they can trust. You are a woman of integrity and great character. You navigated us with calls to help explain every part of the process."
"Carol was a knowledgeable and dependable representative in our real estate transaction involving a Leisure World unit. She worked tirelessly to make sure that a rather complex buy went through without a hitch. We are grateful for the time she spent and how she kept us informed every step of the way. Go Carol!"
"Thank you again for everything you did in getting my Uncle’s place in Leisure World sold.
You made the entire process so easy and we are absolutely amazed that you got it sold so fast.
It’s taken a huge weight off my Mom’s shoulders and for that, I am eternally grateful.
Thank you over and over!!"
"My place had been on the market nearly six months with another company. Nothing was happening. I canceled the listing and listed the property with Carol. She priced the property correctly, staged the place (beautifully, I might add). She even tidied up the patio, etc. as I had moved out of state. We had an offer in no time. She was very energetic and worked hard to find a buyer for my property. She saw to it that escrow ran smoothly and she was on top of the paperwork at all times. I highly recommend Carol."
"Carol did a wonderful job as our agent. We had some very difficult situations arise that were out of her control and she hung with us and worked diligently until we were in our home! Every now and then, someone comes along that leaves your life better than they found it, and Carol is one of those people. We appreciated her as our realtor, but will cherish her as a friend!"
"We used Carol Gasper to buy my mother’s home in Leisure World. She was the realtor that all the other realtors I know had recommended for a Leisure World purchase. Carol was on top of every aspect of the purchase while being kind, helpful, understanding and extremely patient to my 85 year old mother and I. During a very integral point in the transaction Carol experienced a family tragedy. She had every right to hand over the work to someone else. Instead, she was there for US and she quickly finished the purchase. We were extremely happy with Carol to help us through all the red tape of a Leisure World purchase. We would highly recommend her to anyone purchasing or selling a home there or anywhere! She was phenomenal!"
"I was looking for a place to live near my daughters who reside in Seal Beach and Long Beach. At the age of 85, Leisure World seemed to fit my needs. With a few setbacks, Carol reassessed my situation and I ended out purchasing a one bedroom unit in Leisure World. I appreciated all her efforts despite her personal tragedy within her family at the time I was actively in the middle of negotiating for a two bedroom unit. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in purchasing a unit within Leisure World."
"My first contact with this team was a few years ago, through Steve Marsh. This year when I was ready to do business, he informed me he was retired and referred me to Carol Gasper. Carol was excellent from start to finish, responding to the simplest or most complex questions timely and knowledgeable. Through challenging times, she remained encouraging and confident."
"Working with Carol was great. I would highly recommend her. She is so very responsive to calls and concerns. She is especially knowledgeable about Leisure World, Seal Beach. Great experience."

"Carol Gasper Knutson has represented my husband and I in both a purchase and a sale of our homes. She is the only realtor we will ever use in the future. Having been in the business I know how important it is to find someone you can trust, someone who picks up the phone, or return phone calls in a timely manner. Carol is all those things and a lot more. She is honest, knowledgeable, and an expert in this field. If you want someone who will walk you through step by step, making sure you understand everything and will make sure your process goes as smoothly and timely as possible, look no further."

Carol handled the whole process start to finish seamlessly. She explained in detail every step of the process and was available whenever I needed her guidance. Anyone buying or selling would be lucky to have Carol by their side representing them! She is caring and compassionate and on top of every detail. And the best part, she got the house sold quickly!"

"When I chose Leisure World, Seal Beach for my next home I knew I needed somebody who knew all the "ins & outs" of becoming a resident there. My instincts led me to Carol Gasper & First Team. I was in a hurry, wanted to be in before the holidays. Carol knows the procedure so well, guiding me every step of the way through it, my request was granted. Choosing the right unit out of so many was the difficult part, but once I did Carol did a brilliant job of seeing everything through so we got everything right the first time. I would not hesitate to recommend her to friends, her experience is priceless."
If you were to ask me to rate Carol Gasper-Knutson on a scale from 1-10, she would rate a 15! Carol helped my father find the perfect property as well as helping us with a gazillion other things that were out of her job description. She is kind, humble, professional, knowledgeable, and extremely quick with response times for calls, texts and emails. She was there for us whenever we needed her.
You would be lucky to have Carol as your Realtor!
