Get To Know Me

The best real estate agents in the business have the distinction of being highly knowledgeable – and no one knows the San Mateo area like Carly Seiff. Outgoing and friendly, Carly is known for her intelligence, industry savvy, warmth, and drive. A proud San Mateo County native, Carly possesses a unique and intimate knowledge of the Peninsula. From San Bruno to Menlo Park, downtown areas with stunning culinary scenes to hiking destinations and pristine parks, Carly knows every street, every corner, and every neighborhood, making her an ideal choice for young couples and families looking to level up from their first home.

With an impressive lineup of awards and honors, it’s hard to imagine Carly in any other career, but she originally began in the legal field. After realizing being a lawyer wasn’t for her, Carly made the switch to real estate and found her true calling. It’s been said that when you love what you do, you never work a day in your life, and this adage rings true for Carly. A mainstay on “Best Of” lists, Carly has consistently ranked in the top 10% of San Mateo County realtors since 2013 and is in the top one percent of realtors nationwide

Approachable, easy to work with, and fun, Carly has certainly made an impression on her clients, many of whom have become lifelong friends. This kind of close connection is one of Carly’s favorite parts of the business, and clients love her seamless mix of responsiveness, honesty, and sharp insight into the market. Carly’s style is all about transparency and demystifying the buying and selling process. While she handles every step of the sale, she also educates her clients along the way, empowering them with knowledge and confidence. This sincerity and care make Carly a friend to her clients, a top-performing agent, and her proudest career moments are those when past clients refer family members and friends to her. Respected industry-wide, Carly is also well-connected within the agent community.  

When Carly isn’t guiding clients through the buying and selling process, you can find her hiking San Mateo’s beautiful parks, sweating it out at OrangeTheory, or taking a quiet moment to meditate. Baking is also a passion for Carly, and clients rave about her banana bread – a secret family recipe. If you’re in the Hayward Park neighborhood, you’ll often see this wife and mom of two boys out for a walk with her fluffy Samoyed pup. Carly is always happy to stop and chat, so make sure to say hello – she may even offer you a slice of that famous banana bread.
