Carol is an excellent realtor and helped us with getting our first home. A friend of ours had recommended her to us. Carol understood the type of house we were interested in and set us up well to get what we wanted. While we were hesitant to look at houses outside of our price range, she encouraged us to see a few. We received an email a few weeks later that one of the nice "out-of range" houses had a price that dropped within our range. Since we had seen it already, we were able jump in immediately with an offer that the buyer accepted- without having to schedule a time to see it first. She was also great at navigating us through the buying process when the sale turned into an unexpected short-sale. We stuck with Carol because she was down to earth, pleasant, practical, understood our needs, and didn't push or pressure us. We felt like we were looking for a home with a friend and by the end we were.
