Carissa Wright can’t remember a time when she wasn’t interested in real estate. Growing up, she often found herself buried in a stack of “Homes for Sale” magazines outside the local Blockbuster video store, scouring the offerings and studying the listings.
College sent her in a different direction – after graduation, she spent time in the banking industry, managing a team of 20 in addition to overseeing branch operations, and then into nonprofit management. As it turns out, these industries and roles honed key skillsets important in her next move, which came in 2015 when she pursued her lifelong interest – a career in the housing market and the opportunity to own her own business.
Wright’s realty business was born shortly after the arrival of her daughter. She wanted to be closer to home for her baby while still being in the business of guiding, helping and supporting others. The transition from managing a business to owning one, and providing excellent customer service at every turn, came naturally to Wright. She is a full-service realtor who takes pride in doing the heavy-lifting for her clients as they navigate one of the biggest decisions in their lives. When selling, she coordinates and manages all partners and vendors to get the home sell-ready. And when buying, she meticulously walks clients through the process from start to finish, ensuring they are comfortable at every turn and that they understand all their options.
“I want clients to let me take the stress and complications out of buying or selling the home for them, to feel taken care of every step of the way, and to be free to focus on their lives,” she said.
“I work day and night for my clients. I absolutely love what I do.”
Wright lives life to the fullest in the South Bay community with her two children. They enjoy keeping active and spending time outdoors exploring all that the South Bay has to offer.
