Caron Schwartz  was wonderful to work with regarding the sale of my home. She helped us find a new home in the  Wilshire Corridor. I wanted an experienced real estate agent to represent my Beverly Hills home, and Caron delivered! She is very professional and  knows the market well. In addition, she is also an educated and trained interior designer, so she “staged” my home and made it look absolutely stunning and professionally designed. Caron Schwartz has a trained eye for design and this coupled with her experience in real estate makes for a formidable combination. I would HIGHLY recommended Caron Schwartz for your real estate needs and design. Most importantly, she is refreshing in her wonderful and upbeat attitude and disposition. She is genuine and really cares for her client’s needs. Caron Schwartz  has deep integrity, honesty and is driven to do her best!!! We spent many days looking along the Wilshire Corridor for a new home. She really knows all the buildings along the corridor. I highly recommend her for this area if you are thinking of buying or selling  or leasing a condominium on The Wilshire Corridor .   Testimonial from Ray A.
