Fred Ensminger recommends Carma Godby

Carma is the best real estate agent for the job. This is the third transaction she has handled for my family members (2 sales and 1 purchase). She understands the Central Ohio market, understands the business details, has lots of connections, and she understands people and how to the navigate the customer through the process from property preparation to closing. Carma has years of experience and will cut through the BS to get the job done without wasting your time or money. She has lots of energy and is very responsive. Thanks again.

FERN ENSMINGER HUNT recommends Carma Godby

Carma Godby sold my home by the end of the day it was put on the market. It was a good house in a beautiful neighborhood and had been well maintained. She priced it fairly, and it went for well above the asking price. I think much of her success was due to her skill in presenting the house and her businesslike, genial manner.

I had a lot of belongings to move or dispose of and felt pressured to get them cleared out to meet the deadline for showing the house. It was hard but Carma worked with us to have everything done rigjht. She had high standards and it paid off for us.

Dan and Libby Kopec recommends Carma Godby

Carma is an amazing realtor!!! She helped us find the perfect house during the craziest housing market in history. She was patient with us and embraced our long list of “must haves.” We were so impressed with her strategy and unique ideas during the closing process. We highly recommend her!

Dan Kopec recommends Carma Godby

When meeting Carma, she immediately went to work and tirelessly sent us listings day in and day out until we finally found our house. We really felt that Carma was working hard for us finding leads and being aggressive as houses came onto the market. With the housing market being as crazy as it was in the first half of 2022, timing was everything.

Carma’s many years of experience also was a bonus as she was able to provide guidance when it came time to put an offer on the house. We felt Carma helped put us in the best possible position when it came time to submit an offer.

Overall Carma’s hands on approach and years of knowledge within the realtor business are great selling points and would definitely recommend others to pick Carma as their realtor.

Teresa and Bryan Adams recommends Carma Godby

Working with Carma Godby, at NextHome Experience, was a perfect match! She assisted us in knowing how to prepare for the sale of our home and was with us the entire journey. I was expecting it to be a difficult and time consuming experience. Carma walked us through the process, fully explaining each step. She calmed my nerves, reassured us and OUR HOUSE SOLD IN TWO DAYS! Above our asking price! With multiple offers!
If you are selling or purchasing a home you can feel confident that Carma and the team at NextHome Experience will take great care in assisting you through the process. She is a go getter and works hard for her clients.
We will soon be closing on our new home with the help and guidance from Carma.

Words can’t describe how great Carma was!! She was knowledgeable, honest, always available and easy to work with. She gave us a lot of great leads and gave us great information and her honest opinion before, after and during all of our showings. All our questions were answered and she walked us through the particulars, even when she was on vacation in Florida, of the mountains of documents required to buy our dream home. Through the entire process she assured us she would take care of us .......and she ABSOLUTELY DID!!!

Todd Edwards recommends Carma Godby

I tried to sale our family house at Buckeye Lake unsuccessfully for 4-5 months. I had many lookers but no takers. Carma happened to be one of those lookers. She gave me a few tips and even provided us with a lock box to keep a key in. Carma kept in contact with me and offered her help. I finally had reached my limits in trying to sale this house and turned it over to Carma. Carma was very committed and confident is getting this house sold. She had it under contract in two weeks and sold for the asking price. I can recommend Carma without hesitation. It was good "karma" for us in choosing Carma Godby to sale our lake house!

Carma is the BEST! This is the second time I have used her in finding a new home. She is quick to respond. Always available. And will work hard to get you the best deal and hose of your dreams. I have recommended her to many friends and family and they always have great reviews as well. Can’t wait to have her help sell our house in the Spring.

Dustin Fulton recommends Carma Godby

Carma helped us with a relocation from out of state (900 miles away) and through a very difficult situation with the seller. We found exactly the house we were looking for, and most importantly, she went to bat for us and worked through a very sticky situation in order to get us in our house and make things as smooth as possible.

Carma's knowledge of the greater Columbus area and real estate trends here is deep. She could tell us about pretty much any neighborhood and builder. Whether you are local or an out of town buyer, she'll treat you well and help you find the right home for you!

Carma did an excellent job finding homes for me to look at. When I found the perfect house she helped me negotiated a good price.

Her help leading me through the sale was very helpful. Even after the closing she is still helping.

Christina Knightstep recommends Carma Godby

I am a first-time home seller, and Carma's skills as a seasoned agent relieved my anxieties. She was realistic and direct when it came to preparing my home for staging and showings. Explaining the nuances of buyers' offers and my role as the seller is second nature to her. Scheduling the closing and interpreting the legalese of the process went a long way in making me comfortable with an unfamiliar and somewhat intimidating task. The best part is Carma is timely and responsive to all modes of communication: email, text, and phone. I have no reservations in my recommendation of Carma Godby. Additionally, Luke, the Next Home mascot, is a nice touch to the signage. My friends and neighbors told me so!

I have recently purchased a very complex property through Carma. I cannot speak high enough of Carma's work. She worked with two owners and myself as the buyer. She went above and beyond to get information on this property. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again. I will be sending all of my friends her way.

Carma was a joy to work with while I was selling my condo. She is so professional, knowledgeable and experienced. In addition to knowing the nuts and bolts of the businesses, Carma was “there” for me and so helpful during my “million questions” phone calls.
If ever I find myself looking to relocate, I would definitely give Carma a call ❤️

Sam Gamertsfelder recommends Carma Godby

Carma has now helped my wife and I with our first purchase, our first sale and our second purchase, and has absolutely met all of our expectations. She helped us sell our first home and find our new home by the deadline she had stated when we started, and got us moved into our home ahead of the birth of our third child, which was exactly what we hoped for. She is awesome.

Joseph Nusairat recommends Carma Godby

Carma was amazing, i was only in town for a few days to arrange selling a condo that had a renter in it. She was able to quickly meet, organize with the renter to get photos and tours of the place to happen while she was gone. The house was quickly sold for more than I thought we'd get and closed with zero issues.

Kelly Collins recommends Carma Godby

Special thanks to Carma Godby, our realtor, for helping us find our new home. We looked at a LOT of houses, after each house we discussed what we liked and didn’t like. That helped Carma get a better understanding of what we really wanted in a house. She monitored all new listings and invited to see the ones she felt most met our needs and she helped us find the perfect house! Since we were looking at water front houses on Buckeye Lake, after showing us houses, she would take us out on the lake in her boat so we could see them from the water too. Her background knowledge of the lake was extremely helpful as we were trying to decide which area would best meet our needs. She also guided us through the buying process clear through closing.

Virginia Yandrich recommends Carma Godby

I can highly recommend Carma Godby as a realtor. Anyone who has ever had the opportunity to have her help you buy your perfect place know how diligently she searches to find just the right one. She has been my realtor twice and both times I have found her to be very professional and honest in her evaluations of the homes. She will let you decide on your buy, but is experienced enough through the housing market to give her years of advice. If you want someone who will get you the best....use her for your realtor.

Virginia Lee Yandrich recommends Carma Godby

I think Carma Godby was an awesome agent from her company Next Home. She was constantly checking new listings to find the exact Condo for which I was looking. When it came up she called me on a Friday and we went early Saturday and I now own it. I highly recommend her years of experience.

Carma was awesome while guiding me through the process of buying my first house. She was very patient with me and answered every question that I had and even provided me with extra information. I felt very confident and comfortable with the information that she provided me and that helped me to be comfortable with the decisions I made during the process.

Dale and Susan Dixon recommends Carma Godby

It was a great experience working with
Carma Godby of Next Home Experience in the selling process of our home.
Our journey was effortless, from the first day we signed to list until the official
“SOLD” sign went up. Several emails, text messaging, and multiple phone conversations affirmed our questions and concerns regarding the sale of our home in this volital market. Carma Godby and her company represented my husband and I with great integrity and sold our home within weeks ! YES ! Within weeks !
If you are looking to “make that move”, without a dought we would totally recommend Carma Godby of Next Home Experience as either your selling or buying agent.

When we first met Carma she carefully reviewed all of our needs and found the perfect house for our family. we used her both buying and selling, the selling process was extremely smooth and we sold our property at a record setting price in our development. Carma is a winner! She makes things happen. From the sale price negotiation to the inspection process, her experience was very valuable through the entire process

Eve Lapolla recommends Carma Godby

Carma and I go way back to the time she sold my daughter and her husband their home in Sunbury. She stayed in touch with me and when I was ready to sell my home that I had lived in almost 49 years she was the first person I thought of to represent my property.

This was a challenge to both of us, and that is putting it mildly. I had a wonderful, very old, home that needed upgraded and a "loving touch". Carma never gave up on me or the house and it was a difficult one to sell. I would recommend Carma anytime that you have a property that you want to sell and she will give 110% all the time. She always took or returned my phone calls, kept me up to date on what was going on and gave advice to me when needed. She was very attentative and exactly what you would want from a good real estate agent. Way to go Carma, finally signed, sealed and delivered. Thank you for all your hard work.

Jennifer Shicks recommends Carma Godby

Carma is an expert in her field. Very helpful, supportive, caring and professional from the first time we talked.
She listened to all of my “needs” and the “wants” I was looking for, and took extra care to make sure she found houses that fit the bill.
With each showing and conversation we had, she gained more and more insight into what I wanted in my new home. Things I didn't even know I wanted!
She was constantly observing me and my reactions while we went from house to house, taking mental notes when I would get excited or show particular interest in a feature or element and then showing me another house that had my initially requirements PLUS an aspect of the new.
When I would get a little anxious or think that I’d never find all of the things I wanted in a house, she showed compassion and understanding while reassuring me it could be done. I think she knew, better than I did, what I was looking for and then she found the perfect house. It checked all the boxes and more! She made the experience as fluid and easy and fun as it could be.
If I ever buy (or sell) another house, I will only request her as my realtor.
I will be recommending her to everyone I know. In fact, during the process of finding my new home, I referred my mom who was selling a property. Carma had it sold within days for the asking price.
She is a gem!

Carma was recommended by a close friend and was helpful from day one. She took our long list of what we thought we wanted and were looking for and provided listings to match our requests. She even offered listings that differed every now and then to make sure we truly knew what we were looking for. Carma was flexible and helpful throughout the process from sending listings, to showings, all the way to closing. Furthermore, Carma made sure post-closing we were taken care of on any outstanding requests found during the inspection. Our closing date was moved around due to scheduling issues but Carma stayed firm with the seller and had our best interest in mind.
