I grew up in a small Tennessee town near Memphis. Raised with a strong work ethic and value system, I believe you treat others as you want to be treated.
With a B.A. in Communication Design from the University of Tennessee, I worked as an ad agency art director, graphic designer, and in marketing and sales prior to making my career change into real estate. Real estate was a natural career move for me with my background, my passion for helping people and my love for houses and design.
I am doggedly determined to do the best job for my clients. I take them by the hand and guide them through the many decisions involved in selling or buying a house to put more money in their pockets with the smoothest, hassle free experience possible. What I enjoy most about real estate is forming relationships with people and having the privilege of helping them make wise decisions about the largest financial purchase of their lives. As a Strategic Pricing Specialist, I educate clients on current market conditions and competition so they have a pricing strategy to get the most net for heir house.
I’ve lived in Atlanta, Knoxville and Chapel Hill before moving to Raleigh and after thirty plus years I am proud to call it my home. This area is exceptional not only for career opportunities, but for our cultural, sports and recreational options available. My husband, Cary Strickland, and I enjoy boating and fishing on our wealth of lakes, rivers and beautiful coastline, all close by.
I support the NC Museum of Art, Convoy of Hope, and Wounded Warrior Project as well as local initiatives like Journey Bags for WAke County foster children. Youth missions are important to me and I support sending youth to help people in North Carolina and around the globe.
Carolyn was always there for us in the selling process. She met with our whole family, as we were 3 adult kids and an elderly mother selling Mom's home. She was full of ideas and recommendations, she was patient, and respectful navigating the 4 of us adults. She was always willing to find out more for us even as we transitioned the house into a trust agreement. She made sure we had the home in move in condition for any prospective buyer and that it would show well. Carolyn found resources for us to utilize for items that needed to be resolved, improved, and enhanced before selling, as well as while on the market. She always knew what our competition was and kept us well informed. Carolyn was there for us through the entire pre sale to closing process. She is very dedicated to her clients and I highly recommend her.
As this was my first experience selling a home, Carolyn really broke it all down for us and was so helpful from beginning to end. She was there for us every step of the way and was very understanding and took all our questions and concerns to heart. I believe the best measure of her work would be that when the buyer had the home inspected the inspector found nothing of note and the home sold rather quickly.
I purchased a house in Raleigh with the indispensable assistance of
Carolyn Strickland. Carolyn is the ultimate professional. She is friendly, caring and fun to work with To say that she went "above and
beyond" is truly an understatement. I highly recommend Carolyn to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a house in Raleigh.
