The purchase or sale of a home is one of the most important financial decisions a person will ever make.
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work. I developed these skills through my years of being a Registered Nurse, Teacher, and Transferee.
Being a REALTOR® for over 20 years I bring a wealth of expertise and knowledge to every real estate transaction I’m involved in. Experience, knowledge, flexibility, and versatility allow me to help my clients achieve their goals-whether it’s buying or selling a home, or investing in a property. Setting out with one goal when I transitioned into the real estate business: Provide top-notch customer service to my clients by taking the time to listen to their needs and concerns. “Being able to maintain my sense of humor during the pressure of real estate negotiations, being diplomatic and tactful makes the real estate transaction more successful.”
I feel it is important to provide excellent communications, professional and concise marketing presentations, educate buyers and sellers in the current conditions of the real estate market, and have a strong sense of ethics and integrity. Additionally, being well versed in the diverse housing market of Lake County and northern Cook County. My clients state that my exceptional negotiating has provided for them a better return on their investment. Having moved over 5 times in a short period, I understand what my clients experience.
Relocation and Transferee Specialist.
Most importantly, I am committed to personalized customer service to each client I assist in buying or selling real estate.
"Carolyn helped us to set a realistic price based on the comps in Libertyville. She was very knowledgeable about what was on the market and what was selling at what prices. She helped us get top dollar and sold our house in 4 days. The photographer that she selected did a great job of showing the best features of our home."
