Carla was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and came to the City of Brotherly Love in 2010 where she fell in love with the Fishtown area, which due to its Brooklyn-but-even-better vibe (ask me why), just felt like home.

Carla’s first foray into Philadelphia real estate ownership came with the purchase of 2 investment properties, twin historical trinity homes that needed complete renovations on an unassuming block in the heart of Fishtown in 2012. Shortly after, Carla moved onto a commercial investment, now the sight of the bustling and soon to be expanding Ramona Susan’s Bakeshop. Due to her experience with both renovation work and dealing with the city of Philadelphia Municipal Departments, Carla is a wealth of knowledge and resources for her clients.

Prior to moving to Philadelphia full time in 2019, Carla worked as an institutional equity trader for Wells Fargo in NYC, a career that spanned 20 years. Working on a stock trading desk is the ultimate proving ground for skills such as: sales, negotiations and financial know how. Carla has taken these skills and parlayed them into her real estate career, where she represents everyone from first time buyers to experienced real estate investors to renters just dipping their toe into the world of Philadelphia. Being an experienced homeowner and investor herself gives her a unique edge in the world of real estate, in addition to her deep understanding of all financial products from her time at Wells Fargo.

Carla lives with her family in the University City neighborhood of Spruce Hill and enjoys spending time with family, gardening, walking shelter dogs, promoting Philadelphia’s public schools, house design and running outside (Rocky Run anyone?). Carla is committed to leveling up our community, creating a life of fun and abundance and bringing people with her. If you’re looking to work with a realtor who is dynamic, creative, patient, and into making dreams come true, call me.

Testimonials

Hear it from those Carla has helped.

“I worked with Carla Brandoff and I cannot say enough things to convey how amazing she was throughout this entire process. I relocated from out of state and was unavailable to do any in-person tours, so she would go in my place. Her tours were EXTREMELY informal and any questions I had she answered and or solved them very quickly. She is what made this process stress free and actually enjoyable. Thank you Carla!!!”

 

“I had a great experience finding my new apartment with Carla! She was so helpful from beginning to end, from multiple days of touring apartments to facilitating my application and lease. She was communicative, always available to help and so patient with all of my questions. It made the moving process infinitely easier having her support. Thank you Carla!”

“Carla has been absolutely the best agent we could have asked for. My daughter was a ‘First Time Buyer’ and I live 1000 miles away. Carla stepped in, explained all of the intricacies of a Sales Agreement, Down Payment, mortgage application, credit, everything! She answered every question, responded to every email, walked her through the inspections and finally, settlement. We could not recommend Carla higher! She was the calm in the storm!“

“Realtor Carla Brandoff helped us find the perfect one-bedroom apartment for our daughter, who is studying in Philadelphia. Our priorities were finding a place that was safe, accessible to her program, and affordable. After showing us over a dozen units one morning, we had a good idea of what we wanted and what we didn’t want. We settled on one apartment and then Carla and her team went to work on drafting the lease, sending it to us for review and revision, and then finally signing it. All of this took place between one stifling hot Thursday in July 2023 to the Sunday. Very satisfied with Carla and would be very happy to recommend her as an realtor to others.”
