Message from Carolyn:  Sure, the above designations are great to have, but for me... it's the chance to learn so much more about my craft... being a Realtor in today's real estate market.  Things today are so different than they were just a few years ago, and the knowledge I have gained in earning my designations has helped me help my buyers and sellers immensely.

I look forward to helping you achieve your real estate dreams, as well.


Why Carolyn Can Help:

Carolyn is committed to providing her clients with the best service and assistance in selling or buying their homes and properties. 

Her passion and love for what she does has given her the motivation and incentive to continually look for new ways to ensure that the home buying or selling experience is a pleasant and profitable one for each client she represents.

Carolyn's expert knowledge continues to benefit both her buyers and her sellers.  For example, mortgage financing is one of her passions.  There have been so many times when buyers have come to Carolyn... thinking that they could not get mortgage financing because of some problems in the past.  Carolyn's extensive knowledge of the mortgage market, and of what a buyer can do to qualify... has changed many frowning home-dreamers into smiling home-buyers.  Carolyn just might be able to do the same for you.

The same can be said for Carolyn in regard to her home-sellers.  In today's real estate climate, expertise in all aspects of home marketing, including those moving up to second or third homes, as well as those sellers who now find themselves as "empty nestors" and needing to find a smaller home that better fits their current needs. 

Also... Carolyn's vast knowledge in the areas of short sales and home loan modifications is needed more than ever.  Today's market is not the time to let an inexperienced agent practice on the purchase or sale of your home.

Carolyn understands that selecting the right Realtor can make a tremendous difference in customer satisfaction and the final sale price.  Not all Realtors are alike and every sale requires a lot of work on the part of the Realtor.  When they do their work in marketing the property effectively and keeping the seller updated and briefed, the seller benefits from a volume of qualified buyers.  For buyers, a good  Realtor will listen and respond with a wide range of choices of homes for sale that fit their needs.
