Owner / REALTOR®
Washington, DC 20002
Many people go into real estate as a business. For me, it's a passion.
I am committed to helping you navigate the complex DC real estate market with confidence. Having bought and sold investment properties for many years myself, I see the potential in every property, and understand how important it is to have an agent who takes the time to understand your motivation for buying or selling, and makes your priorities theirs.
I will fight for the best deal possible and make sure no detail is overlooked. Every neighborhood and market is unique, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
As a California transplant, I offer expert relocation assistance for anyone moving to Washington DC. Whether you are in the market for a luxury condo, an investment property, or a place for your family to call home for years to come, I will be your go-to resource to make your move a breeze. I take the time to do a comprehensive needs analysis with every one of my clients to maximize our time together and find you the right home at the right price quickly. My goal is to help make your relocation to Washington DC as smooth and headache-free as possible.
I have built deep ties to the DC community and bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. I also have first-hand experience owning historic properties, overseeing renovations, and managing income properties, and can help you understand what to expect. Together, we can find you the perfect home to fit your lifestyle.
Sell a Home
Homes that are priced right in this market are selling quickly. When it's time to move, you need someone who can help you get top dollar for your home and manage the entire process from start to finish.
I utilize the latest technology and online marketing strategies to get your property in front of the right buyers and get your home sold quickly, while keeping track of every step to make sure no detail is missed on the way to closing. My aim is to win clients for life, so your satisfaction is my #1 goal.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Often, buyers can't visualize living in your home the way you do. I work with you to make your home attractive to its ideal audience and help you get top dollar. Things like staging, making repairs or minor improvements, or even a fresh coat of paint can make the difference between a home that sits on the market for months and one that sells fast.
"My fiance and I used Carolyn as first-time home buyers to find a home in DC that fit our investment interests and future plans. She was highly professional and highly knowledgeable of buying trends, especially in up-and-coming neighborhoods with the potential to make a healthy return on our investment that we were looking for. We purchased a home that had some challenges, and Carolyn fought hard with us to get what we needed from a frustrating seller. We feel like we ended up with the a great result, and are very happily living in our home and getting to know our new neighborhood. I'd recommend Carolyn to anyone looking for their perfect home."
