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.
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.

As a realtor myself, when it came time to sell my personal home of 20+years I knew I would need a very "special agent" to handle what would be an emotional and important transaction. Carolyn Strickland brought not only professional proficiency but personal sensitivity to the entire process. From beginning to end her attention to detail in photos, disclosures, and due diligence was impressive. Her assessment of the property, her research of comparable homes and on-target pricing resulted in a smooth, hassle-free experience.
We were new to the Raleigh area and worked with Carolyn in finding the perfect home for us. She asked many questions to narrow down the search to fine the right home for us. Carolyn will "go to bat" for you as her client and make sure all your questions are answered and addressed in the whole process. We were very particular and stood by us throughout the whole process. She has been in the business for many years and is very educated. She is honest with you and will look out for your best interest. I highly recommend using her as your agent. I consider her a friend and not just my agent :)
