“We first worked with Carol at Bed and Breakfast Inn Brokers when we purchased Amber House Bed and Breakfast in Sacramento back in 2004. More than 10 years later, when it came time for us to sell, it was an easy decision to choose Bed and Breakfast Inn Brokers as our broker again. Carol is a good communicator- direct and forthcoming- and knows the buying process well. Whether you are a first time buyer looking for guidance and counsel, or are an experienced buyer looking for savvy and nuance, Carol delivers.”

“Carol Balliett provided the best service imaginable during the sale of the McCloud B&B Hotel. While it was a lengthy process, she was right there every step of the way to assist, recommend and suggest as needed. This was a first-time sale process for me, and Carol provided the information and directions that was required to go through the maze of documentation required by the buyers, their lenders, the title company and other government agencies. She is extremely knowledgeable and worked diligently at all hours to see the sale through. I truly appreciate all that she has done in seeing this transaction through to completion, and would certainly recommend her services to anyone who may be considering to either sell or purchase an inn. Thank you, Carol, for all that you have done for the McCloud B&B Hotel sale.”

“Carol Balliett is the consummate professional, but better: she's both passionate and compassionate. And she doesn't quit, ever. We had a very long and complicated sale which came about in spite of nearly insurmountable problems, and this was all BEFORE the escrow. Carol kept us on track, on task and on time. It simply would not have happened without her.”

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Carol Balliett for making our dream come true. I cannot believe that there is anyone that works harder for her clients then she does. These transactions are not always easy but Carol never gave up and always had a positive outlook. Because of her expertise and determination we are now the proud owners of The Arbor Guest House in Napa. Thank you Carol for representing us and more importantly becoming our friend.”

“We can not express how fortunate we are to have had Carol Balliett as our Lodging Specialist! She was the ultimate professional throughout our search for our perfect property. She guided us with patience as we together looked endlessly all over the state, finally finding the property of our dreams. Her professionalism and knowledge throughout the entire buying process was invaluable. She worked tirelessly (and all hours!) to help us reach the finish line. No matter what the problem or obstacle, Carol had the answer, and helped solve any dilemma that came up. She has a wealth of knowledge on the entire process, and we couldn't have done this without her!
Soon after the purchase of our property, we invited Carol to our onsite wedding, and we were more than honored to have her attend! She has become a friend and trusted advisor. We unhesitatingly recommend Carol as Lodging Specialist.”

“Carol Balliett was a total superstar on our transaction. She knows this business inside and out and she did an amazing job protecting us throughout the process. We are so pleased we chose to work with her and we would recommend Carol to anyone getting into the lodging business. The follow up Carol provided and the many late night phone calls go above and beyond. Carol has become a valued resource to my partner and I and we are grateful for all of her guidance and friendship. She really knows how to oversee the transaction to the end. Thanks Carol for everything. Can’t wait for you to stay at our place! “

“This letter is a testimonial for Carol Balliett and all the hard work she put into our purchase of the St. George Hotel, located in Volcano, California. To this day, my wife and I continue to hold a friendship with Carol. She continues to demonstrate the highest integrity and honesty which has carried over from what started as a professional relationship to our current friendship.
We purchased the St. George in May 2006. The Hotel has 21 guest rooms, fine dinning restaurant, bar, conference center, and a garden area for weddings and other large outdoor events.
From the start in early 2006, Carol proved her skills to put "the deal" together where both my wife and I thought we could never own such a hotel as the St. George. We thought it
was just too far out of reach for us financially. Carol's analytical abilities to look at the financials of the Hotel and her assistance with building the relationship with the bank showed the sellers, bank and my wife and I that it was feasible for us to buy the St.”
”It is my strongest recommendation if you are buying or selling a property that you utilize Carol's many years of experience and all of the relationships she has built to assist you with your transaction. You will find that she will be able to guide you through the entire process. And, if you have only purchase a house, her experience will be invaluable to you.”

“I cannot thank you enough for making our dreams a reality, thank you so much for helping us get this property. You have a great knowledge, have been a great teacher to me and gave me much support when I needed it. You were able to assist me with financing, licensing and ultimately directing me to my first profitable business. Thanks a lot.”
