20201 Village Green DrWhat more can you possibly ask for when looking for a realtor? Passionate, knowledgeable, experienced, friendly, patient. All those describes Carol Gilles. She helped me purchase my first home a few years back and from the very beginning when I first met her, she made every conversation as comfortable as if you’re talking to a long time friend. All relevant information was presented clearly and concisely. Fast-forward to 2016, I made the decision to sell my home and without any hesitation, I contacted Carol to help list and sell my home. I had the same expectations from Carol and she didn’t disappoint. If you’re looking to buy/sell and want a low stress experience, I highly recommend Carol to anyone.
