We worked with Carolann for an extended period of time due to market conditions. In this overall challenging environment, we were very fortunate to have such a professional on our side when we were selling and also when we were buying. Carolann guided us through every step of the way with her experience and elegance.

Carolann managed to find a great buyer with great speed for an older house with less promising prospects. She had a team of great people to assist me with the clean-out of furniture and portable property. The sale went seamlessly. I highly recommend this realtor.
Selling in this market is a real challenge. Carolann is a go-getter that goes above and beyond to ensure her clients get the best deal. We had a particularly challenging transaction and if it had not been for Carolann, it never would have happened. I have seen her in action for many years on many deals. She is an A+.
