She is well versed in San Francisco’s luxury real estate market, and has been a consistent top producer. She earned the distinction of #1 producer at Hill & Co. for 2011.

A seasoned expert, Caroline has weathered a variety of market conditions. During the past three decades, she has experienced six recessions and the effects they have had on the real estate market. She has found each market climate to be unique and challenging, and believes it is important to be able to modify sales and marketing techniques, and to remain competitive through continuing education and experience. Caroline understands that to manage any market condition requires the skills to expertly handle listings and counsel buyers.

People and community matter to her, and Caroline’s reputation is sterling as a result. She is renowned for her attention to detail and powerful negotiation skills. She consistently treats real estate as a service business, and her success is directly related to the ongoing attention and thoughtfulness she provides clients. Her strong relationships with clients and colleagues make complex transactions run smoothly.

Caroline believes that marketing, negotiating, and financial skills must be precise, fair and highly competitive in a sophisticated atmosphere such as San Francisco. Her high ethical standards, strict adherence to confidentiality, and careful protection of clients' privacy have made Caroline a trusted agent and sought-after advisor.

Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, Caroline earned her B.A. in English Literature and Religion from Indiana University and studied at Western College for Women in Oxford, Ohio. She is married to Larry Werboff, a well-respected physician in the San Francisco community and Chief of Urology at California Pacific Medical Center. Caroline and Larry have two sons.
