For over 60 years, San Carlos Agency has been a family-owned and operated real estate and property management company located in Carmel, California. Established in 1954 by Jack and Ione Miller, the company is now in its third generation of family ownership under the leadership of Jeff Britton. We are the top property management company in the Carmel area as well as a full-service real estate company. Unlike our corporate competitors, we do not feel pressure to simply generate high sales numbers. Instead, we focus on what is best for each of our clients based on their individual situations, even if it means advising them to not purchase or sell. We provide our clients with the information and advice to help them make the best decisions. We have found over the years that our honest approach to real estate results in satisfied clients who become repeat business and good sources for referrals.
Our agency manages one of the largest housing inventories on the Peninsula: over 400 combined furnished vacation rentals, long term unfurnished homes and condos, as well as commercial spaces for lease. Our expert staff is the best in the business in the fields of real estate sales, vacation rental management and reservations, long term rental management and leasing, commercial property management, maintenance operations, and accounting.

"I have used San Carlos since 1997 for summer rentals. I purchased a home in Carmel Valley with San Carlos as the procuring agent in 2007, and they have acted as the property manager for that property since purchase. All of my dealings with this agency have been excellent.
Importantly for me, they are a long time locally owned company who have always been there when I have had a question or a need. Terry, Mark, Jana and their overall team are delightful folks with whom to do business. They are dependable, hard working, and honest. The best real estate company with whom I have ever dealt...."
