Carol lives in Deerfield with her husband, Steve, and raised two children, each who has moved back to Deerfield to raise their families. Her children, Susie & Tom, went through the Deerfield Schools, where Carol was an active member of the PTO. In her spare time, Carol enjoys her family, including her six grandchildren, their Lake house, boating and travelling. She has been a long time, dedicated supporter of Lungevity, CB Charitable Foundation, Ronald McDonald House, and many cancer charities.
What I liked best about working with Carol was that you could count on her to tell you exactly what she was thinking. She is a great person to go to when you really want to know what is the best way to handle something. She does not go along with a crowd. She stands by her convictions, while being respectful of others' opinions.
Carol both helped us find our home and sell our home many years later. She is very knowledgeable about the area and the real estate market. I would not hesitate to have her sell or help purchase a home as she's a class act!
Carol marketed my home with full attention to every detail, from listing to closing. A true professional.
Carol is the Ultimate professional!! Her warm personality welcomes any prospective Buyer or Seller. Her attention to detail and fine art of negotiation gets the job done!!
