About Us

Just like a “native son”, you will soon feel at home in Groveland. It’s a small town where people still smile and wave to strangers. Traffic is minimal and people move at a slower pace, leaving behind the hustle and bustle of their urban life, even if only for the weekend. If this lifestyle appeals to you, I’d like to take you through a unique real estate experience. This time it is all about you– your needs, your desires, your dreams and long term goals.

About Us - Planning

I recognize that as a consumer, this could be one of the most important financial decisions you will make in your life time. Such an important decision requires the best possible representation.

Whether you are buying or selling real estate, your needs will become the blueprint that I will operate from throughout our transaction.

Eleda Carlson

My name is Eleda Carlson. I’ve have been around real estate and construction all my life. Born in Sonora and raised just outside of Columbia in Shaw’s Flat, I’m a Tuolumne County native. As a youngster and the eldest of five daughters, I tagged along behind my father watching him work. Dad was a general building contractor with a reputation for building a quality home and an eye for detail. A pick-up truck full of lumber and ladders was our family “recreation vehicle”. I guess you can say that real estate is in my blood. I didn’t become a general contractor, but I did inherit my fathers love for buildings and his attention to detail.

My areas of specialization lie in residential properties, homes, acreage & building sites. As I often handle the marketing of real property for lenders, investors and estates representatives, unique opportunities for buyers do come our way. With a solid background based upon nearly 30 years as a licensed real estate salesperson, I have been able to help thousands realize their dream of home ownership. There is a great personal satisfaction in being part of this adventure in real estate. I try to keep an eye on the present while looking forward to the future.


My clients benefit from the teamwork shared with my personal assistant, Miriam Martin. Miriam holds an active real estate license and works exclusively with me in representing buyers and sellers of real property. Her primary responsibilities are in the areas of communication, escrow co-ordination and marketing. She is also available to show properties when needed and has a special talent in highlighting the best features of a home by “staging”.

Thinking of selling?

Be assured that experience, a proven track record and innovative marketing strategies do count. Most sellers want to get their home sold quickly and for top dollar. Friends and family may give you direction, support and advice, but selling in a buyers market will take a professional full time real estate agent. What we bring to the table are professionalism, critical knowledge, marketing skills, negotiating experience and risk management procedures that protect your investment and bring results. I don’t promise miracles, but working together, we will get the job done!

Looking to buy?

Tuolumne County has always been and continues to be a great place to grow up and a great place to live. If you are just beginning to investigate our area, I hope that you’ll let me guide you along the way. I would love to introduce you to the vacation home, residence, home site or acreage that will be so important to you. a place that will contribute to the creation of new traditions and upon which new memories will be based. We will watch for the perfect fit and keep you informed.
