If you want an honest agent with only your interest in mind? You must choose Carl. His balanced approach is very unique in this industry and his negotiating skills are through the roof. I did meet Carl on Zillow and hope you will too!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $125K in Douglasville, GA.
Carl is amazing! He showed us so many homes we lost count! It seemed like we would never find the right home for our family. Carl and his assistant would compile lists of homes in the areas we were searching that met our family's requirements for price, size, bedrooms and school districts. He was always very prompt at returning emails, texts, and phone calls. He was great with my wild children who came along to see 60-70 houses. He pointed out flaws in houses that I would not have noticed, searched for local comps before recommending a good offer, helped find homes that we never saw on our searches, and was just pretty much outstanding! He set us up with a great inspector, lender, and closing attorney. With his help, it was literally easier to close on our house than it was to buy a vehicle! All of my family and friends have agreed that if they decide to buy a house, they will be calling Carl!

Bought a home in 2012.
If you want someone to go above and beyond to help find you a home, Carl is the agent! He has helped my family and me out tremendously in finding our perfect home! When we got "discouraged" because we could not find the right one, Carl would send a list of homes to us that he personally searched so we wouldnt have to do the searching! He will show you a home no matter how far nor what time! He is a very dedicated agent and will make sure that you are happy with your home and will not rest until that happiness is achieved! We loved Carl and you will too! He is very patient and pleasant to work with and he WILL find you a home!

Carl is an excellent agent…. Currently, He is helping us find a home in Henry County many miles away from his office, territory and home… He goes above and beyond to keep us informed of homes that would be of interest to our family....& we are a “picky” family. We gave him a long list of what we want in our new home. He’s done all the work for us.

I called Carl on Friday evening and told him that I wanted to “home shop” on Sunday. With him being in the Canton area, I was sure that he would request for us to set up an appointment… But to my surprise, he immediately asked what time should we meet.

We shopped the entire day last Sunday, I am sure we wore him thin. However, he brought a list of homes that were exactly what we were looking for…He also had several that he suggested that were in our price range we fell in love with. One home that he suggested to us, which we were very spectacle of, is now Number One on our list ….

Carl takes a personal interest in his clients… He listens to you, and then works hard at finding the perfect home for you…. Several times we have contacted Carl very late at night, not once has he missed our call or not returned an email within minutes…I would suggest Carl Hawthorne to anyone that is in the market for buying a home. It’s been a true pleasure shopping the market with him as our agent. I know that he will find us the perfect home! He will do the same for you!!!!....

Finding a realtor like Carl who is totally committed to helping you buy or sell a home is rare. He not only has a wealth of knowledge of the area we are interested in, but his engineering and home building experience and talent has proven invaluable as he guided us on our search and negotiations. Carl is honest and easy to talk to and a great listener! If he does not know the answer to a question he will research immediately to provide it. We are pleased that Carl is our agent and he has our highest recommendation!

My experience with my first Realtor was quite painstaking. The Realtor had poor communication skills, didn't return calls or texts, and did not accurately focus on the fine details to sell my home. After a couple of short months it was obvious this person saw my home as just another listing. Carl Hawthorne renewed my faith in an otherwise dismal market for selling my home. His attention to detail, prompt communication, excellent work ethic, endless drive and dedication has made the selling of my home an exciting process!!! I have been extremely impressed with the format in which Carl has presented my home and has focused on the important aspects that made my house a home to begin with. Being someone who works long hours and out of state pretty regular, I have great faith and comfort in Carl as my agent.

The website will not let us proceed with this review without assessing each of the above categories, but to be completely honest, "Negotiation skills" should be ranked "Not Applicable" because negotiations have not yet taken place.

Carl Hawthorne was very pleasant in our phone conversation to set up the appointment, was absolutely prompt in arriving for the viewing, and manifested thorough knowledge of the home and of real estate in general. He answered all our questions with ease and a base of experience in the market. On one issue that he did not have figures in hand, he complied them afterwards and e-mailed them to us. In addition, he pointed out a potential structural problem in the home--but, with his experience in home-building and an engineering background, he explained how to correct the problem.

Carl has been a blessing to our family. Our first agent was not personable,didn't ask questions about what we were looking for in a property or offer to show us any properties. The level of client service you get from Carl is a breath of fresh air. Carl asked all the right questions about our needs and desires concerning what type of property we are looking for. Then immediately he went to work looking for a home that he thought was what we were looking for, and it was like he was a mind reader. If you are looking to purchase your first home or your tenth home Carl will make your buying experience personable and exciting. From my family to yours Thankyou Carl. Will,Maddie& Bennett Evans.
