Carolyn & Merilee - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Being new to California, my wife and I needed a realtor who had strong local knowledge and would guide us through local norms and advocate for us.

Carolyn came highly recommended from a family member, and she did not disappoint! From communication, to real estate insight, Carolyn was a 'pro's pro'- I would definitely use her again in the future and recommend her to friends or family looking to buy in the area.

Caleb, Newbury Park

Carolyn did a wonderful job in guiding me through my first home-buying experience.

She was incredibly understanding, patient, helpful, and knowledgeable. She was always more than happy to answer any questions I had, and was very encouraging in times when I felt completely clueless. Carolyn worked around my schedule and always made me feel at ease, even though we had quite a few road blocks on the seller's end. She guided me through each step of the process while offering advice, but always listened to my concerns and made adjustments accordingly. Carolyn made me feel more like family than a client, and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or sell a home!

We heard of Carolyn online and got to 'meet' her via Zoom.

Despite COVID and the market being absolutely insane, this process was pretty straightforward, and we felt very well taken care of by Carolyn. Any person in the future who is looking to purchase a home, I will recommend her with warmest regards! What a great experience!

Carolyn and Merilee are probably one of the best teams in the business.

My wife and I have worked with Carolyn and Merilee for several house purchases from our first started home to our sale and upgrade recently. I would not want to work with anyone else because of just how well they listen and how well they work to make sure we were happy with our purchase. They are very easy to work with and very smart and knowledgeable.

Carolyn and Merilee were a pleasure to have as my real estate agents.

They are very professional, attentive to detail and very easy to work with. Carolyn never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. She was extremely helpful and knowledgable and gave great advise during the inspections. Carolyn also helped me on another purchase 3 years ago that was very difficult and complicated. I have been highly recommending her to friends and family. She deserves the highest praise.

Sandra Loffredo, Camarillo

Carolyn and Merilee go above and beyond finding real estate that meets my needs.

In addition they both are so accommodating handling the "little things" that are not really their responsibility to handle but they do so that the transaction and all circumstances needed to complete it go as smoothly as possible.

Carolyn and Merilee were incredible agents throughout the entire process.

Lauren Pyle, Camarillo

When I worked with Carolyn before, she really knows the area and really understood our needs.

I was so happy to work with her again:). She is never pushy and so responsive. She is so wonderful to work with! No stone left unturned! I will and have referred them to friends and strangers. Couldn’t ask for a better team! Carolyn even helped us find local realtors with Dilbeck for my parents in law in Norwood, MA and Lisbon Portugal! Above and beyond helpful!

Meaghan Camarillo

Working with Carolyn and Dilbeck Real Estate was a fantastic experience.

My father-in-law moved into assisted living and we needed to sell the house on short notice. Because of the family situation and because of the condition of the home, there were many issues that could have become difficult obstacles. With her great experience - Carolyn made an otherwise impossible situation run smoothly. She got us a great price with an offer just a few days after listing. She juggled family personalities skillfully and kindly and escrow closed without a hitch. A+

Peter Schink, Camarillo, CA

Carolyn has an amazing knowledge of the local real estate market.

She also has experience in 1031's and Probate transactions which was crucial for this transaction. In this crazy market we were able to close the deal for almost $50,000 under ask. How can a client be more happy than with that! We will continue to use Dilbeck and Carolyn for all future investment and personal real estate transactions.

Debbie Foucar

Carolyn and Merilee are agents whom went above and beyond standard realtor services during our recent transaction for our second home.

What was supposed to be an easy scenario changed day to day with unforeseen circumstances. Fires, evacuations and mudslides could not keep these professionals from doing their best to ease the process. Personal issues on our side that created issues getting our mortgage approved did not damper their efforts, and with their help we were able to obtain an amazingly low mortgage rate with a creditable lender. And sellers that dreamed of high priced closing were negotiated down to a realistic sell price that we as buyers deemed fair. We appreciate all that this team did to navigate us through all of the above, and always we could feel that they were working hard to make the deal go through with our (the buyers) best interests at heart at the same time working effectively and professionally with the sellers. Thank you Carolyn and Marilee!

Karen & Jim Borchard, Camarillo CA

Thanks so much Carolyn.

Excellent work!

Steve Carter

There was no contest, we knew we wanted to work with Carolyn and Merilee again in search of our next home purchase after selling our condo in 2019.

They always go above and beyond every expectation we could possibly have when it comes to a realtor team. Extremely grateful for these women and their hard work and diligence. (And not to mention PATIENCE.) We always felt extremely taken care of during the course of the entire purchase process. We will of course highly recommend Dilbeck, but especially Carolyn, when anyone ever asks us for a realtor recommendation. Can hardly put into perfect words how wonderful our purchase experience was. Saying thank you just doesn't feel sufficient. We are extremely grateful and ecstatic to be homeowners in our hometown, all thanks to Carolyn.

Jeffrey&Lindsay - Camarillo, CA

Carolyn and Marilee are simply the best.

They are always available for their clients. They are realistic in all their assessments and are effective in all they do. Top of the line people. Would use no one else. Period.

George Erb

Coming from another city up north our agent up there went through their referral list and suggested Carolyn.

We were extremely happy with her. As this was a combined family effort to buy our home it was important to take all parties into consideration. She was patient with my daughter and her husband as they are first time buyers. Her advise always steered us in the right direction. She was a pleasure to work with.

Rita zvidrine, Camarillo, Ca

Carolyn and Merilee are so sharp, informative, and so supportive.

I felt like they had our best interests at heart throughout the entire process. They were constantly available to help answer any questions and to walk us through everything. I learned so much from them and felt very confident in every decision we made because of their expertise and guidance. I can’t recommend them enough!

Lauren Pyle, Camarillo

Both were attentative to our needs.

Communication was great and we were both very comfortable with their availability and proximity in transacting business. Their personalities were very open and they resolved any issues dealing with our property to our satisfaction. It was a pleasure working with both of them.

Tony and Gloria Lopez, Camarillo, California

Amazing experience with 2 outstanding brokers.

I would highly recommend whether you are on the buy side or sell side. Very attentive to our changing needs and were exceptional at standing in when we couldn’t be onsite.


Just want to thank Carloyn and Meriliee for another great real estate experience.

Our personal situations make it complicated -- they never expressed anything but help and professionalism and met and exceeded all of our needs.

Karen & Jim Borchard

Carolyn and Merilee are the actual best professional realtor team in Ventura County.

From start to finish of our sale, we were taken care of in every aspect of our process. They made it easy in any way that they could for us without question. Incredibly easy to communicate with, experienced in their field, no doubt that they love what they do, and sincerely care for their clients. Thank you so very much to these two amazing women! We plan to work with them again in the near future!

Lindsay Kooker, Camarillo CA

Caroline and Merilee were so easy to work with and fun!

My husband and I actually interviewed them and another agent to see who we were most comfortable with and they were it. They explained the market of today versus the market of 20 years ago which was the last time we bought a house. Both were very honest to let us know we needed to trim down our possessions in the house. As much as I didn’t like it they were right. We feel that the two of them we’re always there for us any time. If we were still in the California area we would definitely use them again. Carolina also took the time to find us an Agent in North Carolina. The Agent Lora was a great fit . And one more step future she helped us find a terrific college student by the name of Brett to help us move and pack boxes at the California home which sure saved our backs. We can’t thank Carolyn and Merilee enough for all their hard work and dedication to us the clients. Once again thank you, Stuart and Sandy Seeler
