“Moving out of the area now, we've used Carole's services again. All went really smooth, without surprises and very fast. Whatever buying or selling.” Roberto Colnaghi Jr
“Wow!!! Carole was absolutely the best! We have bought and sold a number of houses. She was far and away the most amazing person. Carole set us up with a plan to put the house on the market, set up the photography, placed the home on the market and closed the deal in a few days. She was able to get us substantially over the asking price and closing was a breeze. No issues whatsoever. We couldn't be happier with her and would use her again in a minute. I recommend Carole without reservation. If yo...” Andy Tucker

“Carole is both an exceptional realtor and person! During our real estate transactions Carole conducted herself professionally and was extremely personable. I would find myself chatting away with Carole at length as she is so charismatic and knowledgeable. Carole is pro-active and kept me informed of real estate trends, staging ideas, paperwork needing signatures, showings, interested parties, the escrow process, next steps, etc. She arranged for photographs to be taken of both properties an...” Kelly Fried

“One Word: Excellence! Carole confidently walked us through a tricky time in the market! Not only is she a wonderful realtor, she's also a lovely person, making a stressful time feel calm and secure. She gave astute advice about showing our home to maximize its price. She's always available, always prompt and -most excitingly- she sold our home in less than a week! ” Alex Turco
“Working with Carole was a great experience. Starting with my first phone call with her, to my last phone call. She was so nice and comfortable to talk too about my situation with selling my moms house that was in a trust. With her advice and knowledge throughout the process , she was there to answer all my questions and gave us much needed advice. We accepted a offer from a buyer after the house being on the market for only 10 days. She responded very quickly to any questions I had. Carole kept ...” Terri Mosley

“Great agent, we listed and had 9 offers in a few hours. Carole advised to take an offer that wasn't the highest but was basically a cash offer which turned out to be wise advice when the high offer fell out due to financing. We sold units for $35k over the asking price.” Al Hossack
“Carole was the BEST agent I have ever worked with, by far! She was extremely knowledgeable and professional from the start to finish of the sale of my home. I especially like that she was readily available during the process. If she couldn't take my call she returned my vm/text in minutes!! Amazingly, I can't recommend her enough.” Donna Beck
“Carole is extremely personable and genuinely caring, while maintaining top professional behavior and expertise. My situation was very tricky to handle because I live 500 miles from the property I was selling, and never even took part personally (in person). Carole had to handle everything remotely. Also the house was being leased to an elderly couple who needed help relocating, which Carole did. I would recommend her to friends and family for sure. She absolutely goes the extra 100! miles for yo...” Patty Matheny

She is very personable and professional and was prepared with neighborhood comps and knowledgeable about the market we were in at the time. She has excellent communication skills and kept us updated and calm every step of the way. There were multiple offers in a week from listing. We could not have been happier with our experienc...” Pamela Smith
