Carla’s path to the RE/MAX Distinctive Properties Team has been a unique and rewarding journey. Carla is a practicing Board Certified General and Trauma Surgeon who works with the underserved population in the Bay Area. Carla became a Realtor after realizing that while she is talented at caring for sick patients, she also thoroughly enjoys acquiring, owning, and managing real estate. It is an interest that first began when she got married and has grown over the years.


Carla’s background in medicine has helped her foster trusting, long-standing relationships with her patients. Many of the same skills that she acquired while working with sick patients are also very important for Carla when working with clients, and for all people that she meets: respect, honesty, and commitment. Colleagues who know Carla know that she has the unique ability to be incredibly organized, tenacious, and dedicated. She is constantly available and is an outstanding communicator. Clients have also expressed to her that she is very perceptive and can easily identify the home that suits them best.


Carla holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Villanova University, a Master’s Degree in Public Health from the University of Illinois at Chicago. She received her Doctor of Medicine (MD) from Rush Medical College in Chicago and completed her residency in General Surgery at Temple University Hospital. She then completed Fellowships in Burn Surgery at Cornell and Surgical Critical Care from Stanford University. Additionally, Carla was a Fulbright Scholar to Mexico in 2000-01.


In her spare time, Carla enjoys spending time with her two little girls, Maya and Jessica and her husband John K. Ratliff, MD. She also enjoys running and wine tasting in Napa. After growing up in Chicago and Connecticut, Carla is now proud to call Palo Alto home.
