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 worked very hard to make sure we got exactly what we wanted on our house. She is very honest, hard working, attentive, and gets the job done! Her attention to detail is exquisite!
My fiancé and I are first time home buyers and worked with Carolyn this summer to buy a townhome. Carolyn was instrumental in helping us determine what was important to us, and was patient when we started to look for homes. She was very really proactive in contacting builders and agents to find out more about the home, to clarify any confusions (particularly with new builds) and to answer our tricky questions. Carolyn did a great job with explaining the home buying process and talking us through "what comes next". Carolyn did a great job with market value research which allowed us to confidently negotiate with the seller. Carolyn also helped us through the inspection process and next steps there. I can't recommend Carolyn enough, especially to first time home buyers!
Carolyn Strickland did an excellent job navigating the sale of my mother's home. She kept my brother, sister and me well informed. She was always available, answering all of our questions through out the process. Wonderful lady!
