meet Carla

With my background in engineering, project management, and residential home loans, I offer tailored real estate services and problem-solving solutions to meet the unique needs of each individual I serve.

Guided by my passion for helping others, my mission, captured in the slogan 'Home Ownership Made Easier (HOME),' is to ensure a seamless experience for all clients, whether they're first-time buyers, sellers, move-up/downsize clients, or investors.

My focus lies within the greater Sacramento region, particularly the northern areas including Roseville, Rocklin, Granite Bay, Citrus Heights, Orangevale, Antelope, Lincoln, Loomis, Auburn, and more.

After earning my BS in Mechanical Engineering from UC Davis, I began my professional journey in Silicon Valley as a manufacturing engineer, new product introduction engineer and later as a Project Engineer overseeing new large-scale projects. In 1998, my family and I settled in Roseville, where I worked as a PMI-Certified Project Manager within the tech sector before venturing into residential lending and real estate.

My philosophy centers on building a dependable, professional team as a cornerstone of exceptional service. With unwavering commitment to honesty, integrity, and reliability, I strive to exceed expectations and uphold the highest standards of customer care. As a full-time, full-service Realtor, I’m dedicated to guiding clients through a successful and positive experience with their real estate needs by being there for them every step of the way.

In addition to my professional experience, I am proud to hold various certifications and affiliations, including CRS (Certified Residential Specialist), GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute), SRES (Senior's Real Estate Specialist), Placer County Association of Realtors (PCAR) Masters Club-Outstanding Life Member, Global Luxury, and Five Star Award.

I look forward to the opportunity to serve as your local HOME Girl and exceed your expectations in all your real estate endeavors.

What My Clients Say

Eli and Jennifer Chen

"Carla was an exceptional realtor. She was always friendly and approachable, making the whole process enjoyable. With her keen eye for good taste, she guided us to find a home we truly love. Carla is hardworking and offers strong opinions, which we found invaluable. Her knowledge of the neighborhood is impressive, and she pays meticulous attention to detail. Throughout the escrow period, she followed through on every task, and her support didn’t end with the sale. Carla continued to be helpful even after we had moved in. Highly recommend her services."

Lana Fenech

Best of the Best!

"Carla Layton is more than a realtor. She goes above and beyond for each and every person with whom she works, always with kindness and professionalism. You expect a realtor to show you homes, but Carla wants you to have the right home. She takes the time to listen to your preferences, and internalizes them. She honestly explains all of the pros, and the cons of each home she shows. She won’t waste your time by taking you to homes she knows aren’t right for you. She strives to make your forever home a reality.

Once you are ready to purchase your home, Carla walks you through each and every step of the process. She is easy to reach at a moment’s notice to help explain any questions that you may have. She is more than a realtor, she is a friend who is there by your side. My mortgage broker was most impressed with Carla’s work as well. He stated, “She knows her stuff! Carla is a great person to work with.”

Even after the home is sold, Carla does not dismiss you as a former client. She is a wealth of information. I still reach out to her for advice on many topics. She is always happy to hear from you and offer any help. She has an abundant list of contractors and contacts to get any job done. These recommendations have always been top notch and great to work with. The work has always been more than expected at a reasonable cost. Even the contractors have nothing but great things to say about Carla.

I have worked with other realtors in the past, but Carla will be my “Forever Realtor” going forward. No one exceeds her personal attention to clients. No one gives the kind of service and care that Carla Layton gives. She is by far, the Best of the Best!"

Carla Layton: A True Real Estate Professional

"When we were re-locating to Sun City Lincoln Hills, we were blessed to get Carla as our agent through USAA’s referral service. From the moment we met her until today (almost 8 years later), she has helped us select our perfect “last home”, secure a great mortgage, and care for our home by having a ready list of professionals who can skillfully and competently up-grade or repair our property. We never hesitate to refer Carla to our friends who are planning to move into the area. Carla is truly a “housing angel” who cares about her clients and finding them their perfect home."

Patrick Massenburg

"Carla and I initially met in 2011 and she has been fantastic from the word Go! I was a first time home buyer and she was patient with me in helping me find the place that fit my wants and needs and the home buying process. She steered me away from a bad decision or two. (i.e. living near a railroad track or in an area with high mello roos) When I needed work to be done on the house she always had a list of super people for me to choose from and after the sale was closed, she has stayed in contact with my family and I. She has also picked up and returned my phone calls quickly through the years whenever I had a question related to my house. With the relationship that we've built, it was a given that she'd be the agent I chose when selling the house and she has been absolutely stellar. She is the ideal agent."
