I'm sure glad I found Carolyn and Kristi! Of course I knew Carolyn's work in Long Beach and had met her in open houses over the years. I had already come to respect her hard work and ethical conduct when I contacted the duo to list our home of over 25 years. Due to their efforts, the house was listed, and sold, at a price significantly higher than I had anticipated. Every aspect of their work was masterful. If I had seen their portfolio of our home before deciding to sell, I might just have decided to stay!! It was a pleasure dealing with Carolyn and Kristi, who continue to be involved with us long after the sale was completed. I hope you are lucky enough to find Carolyn and Kristi!

Buyer & Seller

This is our second time working with Kristi Vento. She helped us buy our first home. Then she helped us sell it and then purchase our second home. Kristi was such a pleasure to work with both times. She was always available to answer any of our questions no matter the day of week or time of day. When we bought our first home, we had a very small understanding of the home buying process. She was patient and walked us through all of it. Then when we were ready to sell then buy our current home, she was there to help us navigate that process as well. She never missed a step. When new homes were listed, she let us know ASAP! We would hands down recommend Kristi to anyone we could! Her knowledge of the business and endearing personality are hard to top!

Very professional, reliable, dedicated and eternally upbeat. This is the third time Kristi Vento (and Carolyn Faber) has helped us with "sealing the deal." Amazingly enough, on two of the occasions she managed to find us the PERFECT pocket listings, saving us the hassle of increased competition from the MLS, and ultimately brokered GREAT deals. In addition, having vast experience from the mortgage industry she is able to intelligently navigate you through the loan "jungle" something I have felt has been lacking with other agents. This knowledge proved imperative for us as we have been living abroad for many years and credit history was initially an issue. I'd also like to mention that we were impressed by her comprehensive support team who can quickly get you the service you need.. when you need it!! Everything from loans to electricians. All in all, you really get so much more than just a realtor with this lady and I therefore give her my absolute highest recommendation! Thanks Kristi!!

When we called Kristi on the phone back in March, we had no idea how amazing Carolyn and Kristi were as realtors. We checked their credentials and read the reviews. Nothing prepared us for the attention to detail, the professionalism, the unwavering good spirits these two great women give all their clients. Together they are a formidable team and they complement each other very well. They were accurate in their presentation of the market at the time, and of the need to repair certain things around our house before selling. They work with an experienced stager who worked wonders with our furniture and had very useful tips to show the house in the best light. They recommended painters, electricians, movers, etc. and everyone they recommended was responsible, polite and professional. Kristi and Carolyn were there every time we needed information. They answered our text messages and phone calls immediately with good humor and knowledge. They transformed what is normally an onerous and stressful project (buying and selling a house) into an interesting and enjoyable experience with minimal amount of stress. We always felt they were on top of things, working hard so we wouldn't have to. We would warmly recommend Carolyn and Kristi without any reservation. They are extremely professional, reliable, responsive to their clients' needs, hard working, diplomatic when needed, fair to all involved and a pleasure to spend time with. They even catered a housewarming party for us once we moved to our new place. After having heard such terrible stories about real state agents, we are now fans of these two successful and intelligent women who will work tirelessly for their clients, and do their jobs with a smile.


We contacted Kristi and Carolyn because it was obvious they were two of the top agents in the Long Beach and surrounding areas based on the number of exclusive listings and buyers they represented over the last few years. Once we started working with them, we realized why. They are well connected and extremely knowledgeable about the areas they represent. Some agents say "they are not in it for the money". Kristi and Carolyn proved that they really are not. They simply want to find their clients the perfect home. They did just that for us. To top it off, they are wonderful people who do everything with a positive attitude and a smile. Buying a home can be stressful. Kristi and Carolyn make it as easy as possible. We ended up with a "double win" - they helped us buy our dream home and we made two very good lifetime friends. We will definitely work with them again and strongly suggest that you give them a call if you are looking for the best.


Words can't describe what a great job that Carolyn and Kristi did for me and my family. First of all they found us the house of our dreams. This is because they are experts in the Park Estates neighborhood and always have their finger on the pulse of what is going on. The whole process was smooth and I was updated and kept in the loop of what was going on at all times. Their services didn't end at the sale of the house. They went above and beyond by recommending other professionals (Lender, Appraiser, Home Inspector, Interior Designer etc) and all have been fabulous. I can honestly say that if it wasn't for them my family and I wouldn't be in our dream home. I highly recommend Carolyn and Kristi for all of your real estate needs.

We met these two at a couple of their open houses in the Long Beach area. The most wonderful thing about both of them was that they took the time with us to discuss and implement a strategy in order for us to purchase a home in a most coveted and exclusive area!

Buyer & Seller

In my opinion, the best real estate team in the Long Beach / Huntington Beach area. Kristi sold my home, found me a great rental within days and has now found a new home for me. Carolyn and Kristi will go out of their way to make your real estate buying or selling experience pain free and enjoyable. Thanks again for all your hard work and for making our move to Long Beach a truly enjoyable experience.

Buyer & Seller

You will never meet 2 more honest, hardworking and professional women in the business. Kristi helped me to sell my house in a time where the market was pretty tough. She worked so hard day in and day out to get my house as much exposure as possible. When my house did sell she was right there by my side to find me my next home. She took the time to understand my wants and needs and in the end I was able to move out of one house right into my new home without the hassle of using storage or paying rent while trying to find a home. It was a great experience and I was so impressed by her honesty and integrity.

Lori Dunn

The Faber team helped us sell and buy our home in Orange County Calif. They are truly top notch agents with full knowledge in all aspects of real estate. They are honest and a pleasure to work with. There was never a question they couldn't answer. They made the sometimes emotional buying and selling process go very, very smooth. I highly recommend Carolyn Faber and Kristi Vento for al your real estate needs.
