What Our Clients Are Saying About Us


Thanks for all Your Hard Work . . .

...on the closing of my condo. I appreciate everything you all did for me. Everyone was wonderful to work with. I absolutely love my condo and the location as I was able to train for the Dopey Challenge 4-day run at Disneyworld on Grants Trail! I love having the trail in my "backyard".

- Kristin Werner

Carole and her sons were excellent in all aspects of this transaction.  I would not hesitate to use them again.  I have referred them to friends.

Prepared and Professional!

Carole was well prepared and professional in all aspects of the sale making it easy for me to get through. 

Carole went out of the way to work with my moving company "Home Sweet Home" in getting house ready for the market and staged it surely worked for a quick sale.

- Frederick Houser


Paul Was Just Wonderful

Paul was just wonderful.  Being in NY and having to buy a house in MO, so far away, Paul was the best in coordinating all the necessary documentation.  Simply the best.
-Antonio and Ana DaSilva


Couldn't Have Asked For More! 

Carole found a house for me when I moved to St. Louis.  When the time came for me to sell the house due to a job related move, I did not think of calling anyone but her.  She and her team are terrific.  Everything went well, could not have asked for more.

- Patricia Jamison


All Transaction Aspects Were Great! 

Carole, David and the rest of the Bernsen Team were tremendous.  We will definitely recommend them to all our friends in the Kirkwood area. 
- Jeffrey and Heidi Klco

A second handwritten note from the Klcos read: Thank you so much for all your help, advise, and kindness through this life-changing process.  We are so happy that the Sears family recommended you to us.  Thank you! 


Keeping It All In The Family . . . 

The nightmares of home ownership?  We’ve had a few but I don’t want to talk about that.  I’m trying to repress those memories but I can tell you how to avoid a few.  Work with the Bernsens of Coldwell-Banker Gundaker.  My wife and I bought our first and third homes with Carole.  I don’t know what happened on the second house because I am repressing that memory.  My son Noah bought his duplex from Carole’s son David.  My son Jake bought his duplex from David.  That’s the whole family!

My wife recently dragged me out to look for our “last house”.  I have successfully repressed all the recent viewings excepting the one where we met Matt Bernsen.  As with Carole and David we felt that Matt was more interested in what we needed than selling the property at hand.  The Bernsens bring a wealth of experience to the table and work for you in finding the right place for the right price.  They take great care and work hard to navigate you through the whole process.   And in the case of our first house, Carole did a great job of crafting our marketing plan.

So whether you are buying or selling, give the Bernsens a call and get a good night’s sleep.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
We absolutely love our home and obviously you are to thank.  Thanks for being so patient with us and educating us along the way.  You were our saving grace.  When in doubt of something our standard line was "Let's ask Carole."  We feel so blessed that we had you to guide use.  Thank you for everything.  We can't wait for you to see the house once we are finished! 

-Molly and Brad Bommarito


In the Best Hands Possible!

We just wanted to thank you for all the work and time put into selling our home.  We always felt assured that the house was in the best hands possible.  You did such a thorough and careful job, taking our needs and concerns seriously.  We never hsitated to call you with thoughts and questions because you were so open with us from the beginning.  So, from the buying to the selling, we thank you tremendously for all your help!  

-Jim and Amy Shroeder and Family


Ellen O'Brien recently nominated Carole Bernsen for a company award and these were her thoughts . . . 

I feel she exemplifies the meaning of a very caring agent, having her client’s best interest always at heart.  Carole has been an agent with Coldwell Banker since 1989 and I continually receive praise for her attentiveness to her clients.  Carole's father was in real estate with John Armbruster for 20 years.  His mission statement was to always sell someone a house that was good for them.  Carole went into real estate because of how much her dad loved the business and how he helped so many people with buying and selling their homes.    

Carole now has a team of helpers supporting her with her philosophy of 100% attentiveness to her clients.  Her son, David, is a full time agent working exclusively with Carole and Terri Diliberto is her marketing director.  Carole believes in having a very positive attitude with all sales transactions and David and Terri support her with this and help her accomplish this goal.

Wonderfully Thorough

“I have a policy that I will ONLY surround myself with people I enjoy working with in my life…and Carole is indeed a person who always maintains her patience AND her persistence FOR me, as my advocate AND my advisor, whenever I have been in need of her great expertise over more than 10 years of working with her.  I can’t imagine letting anyone else help me to navigate through the area of real estate, and I would encourage anyone to benefit from her wonderfully thorough yet warmly-embracing style of work ethic.”  

- Dr. Sandy Jost, Ph. D.


You Care Greatly for your Clients

"Thank you for all you've done to bring my property to closing 3/5/08.  I knew I needed a professional to handle the house once I left town.  It required taking the listing from another company and giving it to the "Big Gun".  But Carole, you are so much more than a company.  Your professionalism is without contest, but it is your spirit that brings you far above the crowd."

"You care greatly for your clients.  Everything it took to manage this sale including dealing with a "high maintenance" buyer, the things needed to be fixed and all the family members posing as players to bring this all to fruition was handled with poise and graciousness, but also with tenancity required of a true professional."

"Not only Coldwell Banker/Gundaker but the entire Kirkwood Community is blessed to have you living and working in their midst."

- Carole Baker
