Beginning in real estate in 1978, Carolyn’s wealth of knowledge and expertise of the industry and its evolution – as well as long-time experience in the Osprey area – allows her to get to the heart of what her customers need and want. Valuing honesty, patience, perseverance, tenacity, respect and thoroughness in all things, Carolyn commits herself to provide the highest caliber of customer excellence. Keeping... more. the ball in the air requires timely and trustworthy communication among all parties and listening, according to Carolyn. She takes a personal interest in her customers' goals by making herself available and willing to take steps other agents perhaps do not have time for. Carolyn wants her sellers and buyers to know that they can rely on her through the good times and the not so good times of the real estate experience.

Carolyn’s love for historic and vintage homes, architecture, and antique furniture add to her abilities as an agent. She couples her interests with her professional passions of languages and linguistics – she has her BA in French and minor in Spanish, and MA in English – and enhances her expertise with CIPS and CRS designations to reach and connect with international customers. Having lived abroad in France, Argentina, Paraguay, and done extensive traveling, Carolyn has a healthy respect for foreign markets and what buyers from around the world need and expect in an agent seeking a second home along Florida’s southern Gulf Coast.

Originally from Kentucky, Carolyn moved to Osprey in 1997, falling in love with its laid-back atmosphere and proximity to Casey Key. Throughout her real estate career, there have been occasions Carolyn took breaks and explored other professional interests such as becoming an executive assistant in the aviation industry; was a legal assistant for a time; owned and operated three retail antique businesses; taught French and English; helped manage a bakery and breakfast café owned by one of her sons and his wife. She credits these experiences to be able to function in a social and business atmosphere while relating to customers from all walks of life.

First joining Michael Saunders & Company in 2004 until 2017, Carolyn earned numerous accolades, including the President’s Circle, Circle of Excellence, Women’s Council of Realtors High Production and numerous MSC Title referral certifications.
