About Me


As a Chicago real estate broker on Chicago's north side, the communities Carole specializes in are Bucktown, Logan Square, Lincoln Park, Lakeview, Lincoln Square, River North and the North Shore Suburbs. She is committed to making her clients' real estate dreams a true reality.


Real estate is in her blood!


Her mother was a real estate broker for 25 years and she grew up learning the importance of being an expert in the market, being totally accessible to clients, and matching the clients' need to the property.

Owning and renovating three homes in the past 15 years, Carole personally knows the challenges of buying and selling a home on all levels.


Her love of working with first time or move-up buyers, and upper bracket sellers are her passion. Her primary goal is to make her clients happy.


As a key member of the Crate & Barrel executive team for over 30 years, Carole brings her tough negotiating skills, enthusiastic can-do attitude and eye for design.  Her unlimited energy, enthusiasm, and proven collaborative skills give Carole the edge in the residential market. 


My affiliation with the Kevin Wood Group, a boutique team of Chicago real estate brokers with over 60 years of combined experience, provides me access to a team that has been involved in hundreds of transactions of single-family homes, condos, co-ops, multi-unit buildings and investment properties in many Chicago neighborhoods. The group ranks among @properties™ top producing teams, and is consistently recognized as being one of the most highly regarded brokerage groups in the Chicago real estate market.


Carole appreciates and welcomes your inquiries, real estate needs, or referrals. 


Clients are saying:

"I met CC through a good friend and from the moment I connected with CC, I KNEW things were on the upswing. CC has the positive, aggressive, no messing around- but kind, attitude that makes real estate easy. She worked her magic and really helped coordinate getting the condo listed and ready to show. Living out of state, CC went above and beyond to keep me in the loop and even extending herself further to help me out just because she knew I wasn't in Chicago. She is on the ball, informative, knowledgable and overall, just a great woman to work with. I would recommend CC to buyers and sellers with no hesitation."
