Cara grew up in the northwest suburbs and has been a resident of Barrington for 23 years. She joins her mother, Kerry Franze, a top-producing agent, as part of Franze Golec Real Estate with @properties. Cara brings over 10 years of experience with successful network media sales in downtown Chicago and the North Shore, followed by 10 years as a senior producer in experiential marketing, where she managed and executed high-profile events throughout the country on behalf of Stella Artois.
Cara's versatile background – her expertise in marketing, her ability to manage large-scale projects, and her personalized approach – make her a perfect fit for the real estate industry. She understands that every client has unique needs, and she tailors her approach to ensure that the client's best interest is always her #1 priority. To Cara, working with clients to achieve their goals is both a privilege and a reward. This client-centric approach allowed Cara to sell her first home in only 4 days during her second week as an agent. By using strong negotiation skills along with the cutting-edge resources provided by @properties, Cara helps her clients navigate the real estate market with one aim in mind: to make buying and selling property a seamless experience.
As a trusted advisor for clients in the Chicagoland area, Cara is also a proud member of NSBAR (North Shore Barrington Association of REALTORS). She is committed to involvement in both the local and global communities, supporting Chicago-area businesses while at the same time raising funds for Hands of Hope, an organization that works to improve education, agriculture, and health care in Africa.
Clients are saying:
"We are so lucky to have worked with Cara Golec of the Franze/Golec Real Estate Team, she made selling our parents home an easy and seamless experience. Our house went under contract 4 days after we put it on the market and was able to achieve our target price which was substantially higher then the last comp sale in the area.
Cara was always available to answer our questions (and the buyers). She was so attentive and responsive making sure everything was handled correctly.
I've recommended Cara and the Franze/Golec Real Estate Team to everyone I know. She’s a true professional and a genuinely nice person. I think you'd be hard pressed to find a better Realtor."
