“Sometimes selling a house is a fun and exciting time.” -- May 2016


“Sometimes selling a house is a fun and exciting time; the beginning of a new chapter for a family, a great new journey. And sometimes the need to sell a house is born from a negative situation that is filled with stress and strife among various family members. We had the distinction of the latter.

The need to sell this home was a difficult decision for the family, but Carol helped make it less painful in so many ways. She went above and beyond in selling this property; she worked quickly and efficiently, she helped us secure a great price that went a long way to ease the worries held by some of the family members, and she made sure that everything went smoothly.

There were so many other things to worry about during the sale of this house, and Carol knew that and did everything she could to make sure the sale was not one of them. She’s responsive to the needs of her clients; she got a few requests for things that I’m sure were tedious for her to do, and probably completely unnecessary, but she did them with a smile, and in a timely manner. She understood what everyone was going through, and she just wanted to make it better any way that she could. I can’t say enough about how kind and patient she was throughout this process.

I highly recommend Carol for anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property. She is a savvy real estate professional, who knows how to handle her business, and yours! If you team up with her, she will always have a smile, she will always listen to you, and she will always give you 110%.”

“Carol, Thank you!” -- Oct 2014

“Carol, Thank you! We would like to thank you for helping us find our (beautiful) new home and selling our other property. We really love the old home. It was tough to leave our first home, wonderful neighborhood and friends. This is new beginning for our future. I have attached a copy of the note I will leave in the Huntington Lane home for the new owners. It gives some instruction on the Jacuzzi, heater, and alarm. I hope they enjoy the property as much as we have over the last 8 years.”

We are grateful for the hard work Carol put in to get us into our new home. Thanks again Carol. You are the best!

“You proved to be a tireless and determined guide!” -- Oct 2014

“You proved to be a tireless and determined guide! We depended completely on your knowledge and expertise to guide us through the jungle of paperwork and swamplands of legalese and bureaucratic mumbo-jumbo. You proved to be a tireless and determined guide, putting in long hours and going beyond the call of duty.”
Gary & Judy Brooke

“We liked that you kept us informed on a weekly basis at minimum.” -- Oct 2014

You Were A Godsend! The sale process with you as our agent was truly an easy experience. We liked that you kept us informed on a weekly basis at minimum, we liked that you always returned our phone calls promptly and your were always happy to answer even the silliest of our questions? You were a Godsend and we were glad we had your knowledge and expertise.

“I will be forever grateful.” -- Oct 2014

“I Will Be Forever Grateful! I want to take a few minutes to ‘thank you’ so much for being so professional and efficient in walking me through the “selling” ordeal. I don’t think I would have survived such a strenuous situation. I will be forever grateful.”
~ Lilia Wong

“We couldn’t have done it without you!” -- Oct 2014

“These past eight or nine months have been so crazy, with the birth of our baby girl to Ed changing job, to the whole emotionally draining process of buying a home. We couldn’t have done it without you, Carol!” “Thank you so much for your hardwork, and even more than hardwork, your emotional support through it all.” “Thank you so much for staying up late to put in offers, for always responding to our messages quickly, for being patient with our often indecisiveness and of course, your must thank your husband for us for his wonderful babysitting that Sunday afternoon!” “We would refer you to anyone looking to buy a home in a heartbeat!”
