Ten Million Dollar Producer
Top Sales Agent in Lake Toxaway
Top Listing Agent in Lake Toxaway

Carol, a Ten Million Dollar Producer, joined the Lake Toxaway Company in January 2005 and has performed as a top producer ever since. In 2009, she soared to the highest sales of any broker in the Brevard Board of Realtors of the Western North Carolina Regional MLS after achieving the second position for the previous two years. Carol is the premier listing agent in the Lake Toxaway Company and has earned that distinction for three years.

Carol excels in customer service and delights in matching her customers with exactly the right property. Her hard work, attention to detail, and dedication have earned her a loyal customer base. Carol develops and implements an extensive online marketing program to target buyers and advertise her clients' listings. Her web presence, 21 years of advertising experience, and love of photography help gain maximum market exposure for her listing clients.

Born and raised in Mexico City, Carol is fluent in Spanish. She attended DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Nursing. After several years of practicing nursing in labor and delivery, the operating room, and a post-renal transplant unit, Carol retired from nursing to begin raising her family. She lived in Houston, Texas for several years and then moved to Charlotte, NC to raise her daughter, Virginia, and her son, Kevin.

As a new mother, Carol began a successful career in advertising and promotions which lasted over two decades. Her many clients included NBC, NBC News Channel, Duke Energy and various non-profit organizations in the Charlotte area. She became a real estate broker in 2003 and has flourished in this career choice. Carol has achieved a GRI designation from the Graduate Realtors Institute, is a Certified Short Sale Specialist, and is currently completing her Certified Residential Specialist designation.

Carol discovered Lake Toxaway in 1990 while taking her children to summer camp and subsequently bought property in Lake Toxaway Estates. She found, "It didn't take long to realize that just spending weekends in Lake Toxaway was not enough. I yearned to be here and call this glorious place home." Carol did just that in 2001.

Carol relishes traveling, especially with her two children, and has experienced countries around the world. Her interests include photography, hiking, scuba diving, new adventures such as hang gliding, and the Toxaway Falls Garden Club, for which she served as a previous president, and is a trustee for the Transylvania Regional Hospital Foundation. Carol lives in Lake Toxaway Estates with her two cats, Chulo and Mille.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.275M in Lake Toxaway, NC.
    The period of time of our ownership, and on thru the sales process of our home on Lake Toxaway was like a season of episodes from the old TV show The Twilight Zone, yet for one marvelous realtor called Carol Watkins. We chose Carol because she is a full-time Professional Realtor committed to excellence. She is extremely helpful before, during and after the sales transaction is concluded. She is tenacious, very well connected, accessible 24/7 with a team that could make anything happen, and Carol has great follow-thru skills to ensure that the “Loop” gets closed. Her flexibility in having to work within & around our “circumstances” was significant. The fact that we had so many “circumstances” made it even that much more challenging, from the recovery due to a major organ transplant for one of us (the sellers), right thru to the sale of our multi-million dollar home in a market period that was very scarce of home buyers in that price range.

    That was the beginning and the end of the story. There were numerous potholes & avalanches along the way, and Carol was right there to provide a resourceful, creative, & problem-solving approach to the many “issues” that arose in the process. She listened, was detail-oriented in all aspects of the process, and took what was the epitome’ of a bowl of lemons, and made some great NC Mountain Lemonade!

    If we ever buy or sell another property in all of North Carolina, it will be with the assistance of Carol Watkins. That’s the best recommendation I can make, I would use her again, above ALL!

    PS-Carol is NOT a relative of mine, just a Great Realtor!

    Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.675M in Lake Toxaway, NC.
    Carol is truly one of the best things about Lake Toxaway. She was professional yet caring from the moment we first spoke over the phone. The amount of up front time she spent prior to our in person visit to Lake Toxaway very much eased the burden of 'shopping' for a vacation home (with 3 young children in tow) and allowed us to zero in on the perfect home for our family. We are thrilled with our new home as well as the friend that we've made in Carol Watkins. She is such an asset to the Lake Toxaway Company and community! I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the Lake Toxaway area.  MoreLess
