I fell into this business by chance as a recent college grad from the U of MD. I had been attending college full time as a Journalism major and working part time for General Electric Co. Upon graduation, I interviewed within GE and was turned down for a sales position selling washers and dryers to builders and appliance stores. I was told that they didn't think I was sales oriented enough! Well, that was a big mistake on their part but it opened the doors for me to a successful 20+ year career selling real estate. What they didn't know is that I was the little girl who was the top Girl Scout cookie salesman, I was the girl who sold Christmas cards in the broiling heat in July to save for a 10 speed bike, I was the girl who at the age of 5 sold home made pot holders! If it didn't walk, I would sell it!! So at the suggestion of my Dad, I took the real estate classes. As a recent college grad I could memorize an encyclopedia in a weekend and before I knew it I had passed the state licensing course the first time around. I dove in and started selling like crazy and haven't looked back since! So the ending of the story is....I did bump into the GE executive that didn't hire me years later and he asked how I was doing and where I was working. I told him I sold real estate for Re/Max and his jaw almost hit the ground. He knew, like most others, that you have to produce to be a Re/Max agent. So call me... I will sell, list or rent your property. And if you are a Girl Scout selling cookies...go get 'em! It's great training for a successful and rewarding sales career.

Ratings & Reviews

Carol was incredible. She made great suggestions for showing. She has a person for anything you need to make your house ready to sell, ie painters, carpet suppliers, house cleaners. She always answers her phone, or returns your call the same day. She sold my house in 11 days.

Helped me rent a home in Frederick Village, MD 21228.

Carol Tinnin is a realtor extraordinaire! Carol is more than willing to come up with solutions to any problem or situation you may have. She is extremely knowledgeable about properties and legalities. She is very approachable and patient and will do her level best to help you through your buying/selling/renting experience. She's business minded but also a friend at the same time. Highly recommended!  More Less

Bought a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Odenton, MD.

My daughter has just closed on a beautiful townhome in Odenton, MD and Carol was absolutely invaluable to her in my daughter's search for a wonderful place to live. Carol demonstrated great understanding of my daughter's needs and limitations and showed her many great choices. Last month, I drove down to Maryland to help my daughter finalize her choices and Carol spent a great deal of time with us seeing almost 10 different properties in one day. After an offer was accepted, everything seemed to be going smoothly. Then, two days before closing, there was a snafu that occurred where the mortgage lender was balking at closing because of a heretofore undisclosed litigation against the local homeowners association. Even though the litigation seemed to have no bearing whatsoever on the townhome being purchased, it was appearing like the underwriters would not grant the loan. Carol quickly researched the issue, saw that this was a solvable problem and used her local knowledge and contacts to educate the mortgage lender and lead them to the correct conclusion that this was a non-issue. I am convinced that, without Carol, my daughter would not be in that home today. Thank you!

I heartily endorse Carol Tinnin!
