We called other realtors that never returned our calls, Carol got back to us right away. I love how she allows you to view the property without preasure or hovering. She said, "you know what you are looking for, just let me know if you have questions". We are still looking for the right property, and we will be calling Carol again when we want to see another property. I know we will buy from her as well.

WOW! These three little letters describe Carol Staats of Elyse Harney Real Estate. We needed a house and what we got was a wonderful home that fits all our needs and wants. We contacted Carol on the recommendation of a friend who had just purchased a house sold to them by her and we feel like the luckiest people around to have met a realtor like Carol Staats. Carol stood by us every inch of the way and provided support, information, guidance, and a genuine concern for our situation. She showed us a house which has turned out to be perfect for us. We've enjoyed transforming it into our home. Our mortgage experience was unbelievably stressful but we held on and everything came together in the end. Carol must have an EverReady battery because she just keeps going and going and going for her clients. We will never be able to thank her enough for all her efforts and patience. Carol Staats - we nominate you for Realtor of the Year!
We encountered Carol's name with a property we saw on Zillow. We had been searching with other brokers for over two years and had been unable to find anything despite a very clear set of criteria. When we contacted Carol, she immediately responded, and upon our first phone call and a few questions, she stated that she had a property in mind for us. With a good portion of doubt, we went to see her for the showings she had arranged for the following weekend. Lo and behold, the first property she showed -- the one she had had in mind -- was the one we ended up buying. Carol guided us carefully through our negotiations with a very idiosyncratic seller and her difficult selling agent. With a lot of patience and Carol's warm coaching, we arrived at an agreeable price. Because Carol has lived in the area for so long and seems to know everyone, she proved indispensable in guiding us toward not only the right property, but also the best people to help us reach the closing with no drama or hassle. We cannot recommend Carol enough. She is knowledgeable, honest, forthright, and a great person to know.
I would recommend Carol to anyone-she was truly a blessing. We were first time home buyers and had contacted two other realtors (if only we knew Carol first) with no luck like they didnt really want to help because we were first timers. We had found Carol on Zillow and she got back to us right away. She was great really listened to what we were looking for and easy to talk to. She is straight forward, honest, and knowledgable. She says it like it is and will tell you if this house isnt right for you not just try to make a sale. She went above and beyond the call of duty on several occasions to help make our dream of owning a home a reality. There were so many up's and downs in this process but Carol was there every step of the way. By the time the closing came Carol felt like part of the family. She truly is a professional and great at what she does. If you need a great realtor then call Carol you won't be disapointed!

We could not have been more fortunate to have Carol as our agent. She is a wonderful person, straight forward and honest. She knows the area like the back of her hand, took the time to understand what we were looking for and gave us sound advice. We recommend her without hesitation.
I have been most pleased with Carol's expediency, constant follow-through and she honestly and directly answers questions. Carol brings warmth, professionalism and determination to the process of selling a home
Carol has brought potential buyers to view the home four times a month on average, has kept us apprised of market trends in our area that pertain to pricing. We chose the firm that Carol represents because we were dissatisfied with the previous Realtor.
Carols firm uses state of the art technical innovation to enhance web and media exposure
for the buyer and seller.
Hello. I would like to say that in a world of ping pong balls, Carol is a pearl! A gem of all gems! She is intelligent, kind, witty, and HONEST. She will tell you, "No. You DON'T want this house," even when the price tag might be in her favor. In short, there are not enough people, let alone, realtors, like Carol! She shoots from the hip and is as smart as a whip!
