Team reviews

Carol is extremely knowledgeable and professional. She helped my husband and myself to buy our first home. As a first time buyers, we had many options and even more questions. Carol provided us with an awesome experience thanks to her support and patient. She facilitated a team of professional who helped us form the get go. She listened to our needs and delivered the best results. Most important she is honest! Our search process was short thanks to her knowledge. But not only had we worked with Carol on obtaining our first home but also on selling a different property. We moved out of State and we needed to sell a different property. We did not hesitate to contact Carol as we know she is an outstanding agent. She went above and beyond in selling the house even though I was located in a different State. We are looking forward to work with Carol in the new future as we have decided to sell our first home. She is to us more than an agent she is our friend!

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Urbancrest, OH.

I was very impressed with Carol the very first time we met at an open house . She was extremely knowledgeable about home buying. She had quite a few tips to ensure you were getting a nice home. She was not pushy or overbearing. She knew I had a realtor and she respected that. I was so impressed though I decided to use her to help me find a home. Carol was wonderful , she gave me a binder filled with information . She set up a search that were the type of homes I was interested in, and was ready to look at homes when I was. I liked the fact that she drove us to each home which allowed me to evaluate the area instead of trying to figure out where I was going. She definitely knew how to negotiate ! She knew what questions to ask to get the information needed to make an informed decision about the house I was ready to bid on. Carol also made me feel at ease and I completely put my trust in her . I highly recommend Carol Shear to anyone who wants a successful home buying experience.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 in Forest Park West, Columbus, OH.

Working with Carol was fantastic. We were looking for something very specific and Carol worked tirelessly to get properties in front of us to review. She was always energetic and committed, even when we felt like we were never going to find the right fit, and then suddenly she pointed us at something new and we found exactly what we needed. Carol was with us every step of the way, through our negotiations and the close. I was thrilled with the outcome.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $175K in Brookhollow, Columbus, OH.

Carol helped us sell our first home and find our dream home! Carol did an amazing job of guiding us through the process of selling our house. It was our first time selling a house and we felt very comfortable with the process before officially putting our house up for sale, which was a good thing because Carol had our house under contract in less than 36 hours. After our house was under contract we began the process of looking for a new house. Carol showed us nearly 2 dozen homes until we made an offer on a house. We were under contract and things were moving along extremely well until we got the inspection back. The results were unexpected and ended up being a dealbreaker. We were less than 55 days away from closing on the sale of our house and didn't have a place to move into. This is when Carol went into super realtor mode. Houses in the area we focused on were going under contract the day they went on the market. Carol sent us listings the second they came on the market and was available at the drop of a hat for showings. We looked at several places but didn't find the one until Carol suggested a few homes that were "outside the box". We immediately fell in love with 1 of the homes Carol suggested and we were back on track. Carol was able to negotiate the timing of both transactions to close on the same day and eliminate our worries. Carol masterfully guided us through one of the happiest, and at times stressful, processes there is. Carol was always available and met any adversity we faced head on. I can't imagine navigating this process without Carol.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 in Tri-Village, Columbus, OH.

Carol is the definition of going above and beyond. In my experience, I had little knowledge of the home buying process going in. She went out of her way to explain all the different terms and processes to help me successfully navigate the treacherous waters that is buying a home. There was no one else I would rather have by my side through the entire process, Carol was professional, knowledgeable, and down right good at what she does. She made a point to discover my needs and help me, not force me, into my new home. Her ability to navigate the real estate market here in Columbus along with the before mentioned characteristics makes it an easy choice for me for who I will turn to for all my home buying and selling needs.

Sold my house in under a day. Worked with my family to find the perfect house. Knew the market and the demands that would be necessary in order to win the bidding war in a sellers market.

Carol was there all of the way for us. From learning what I like to narrow the searches and making life easier to being there and guiding me through closing. She was absolutely outstanding in every way.

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $725K in Dublin, OH.

Working with Carol was a great experience. Carol and her staff were always there to answer questions no matter what time or how irrelevant. She is very good at making you feel like you are her only client no matter how busy she may be. We know that she gave our property as much attention as she would give her own,we would definitely work with her again.
