We decided that we wanted to build a new home but we were intimidated by the process. We had to sell our former home and build the new home at the same time. There was an ocean of paperwork and details that we needed help with, and Karen knew exactly what needed to be filled out and we never worried once. We knew that building a new home would take months (5 months in our case) and Karen was there every step of the way. She looked out for our interests and when our builders gave us trouble, she was the one to go to bat for us. Never once did I feel out of the loop or confused. She sold our former home, negotiated us staying in the home until the new home was finished, and then helped us close on the new build on the same day as we closed on the former home. Because of that, I have no reservations about recommending Karen for your real estate needs.
!! She’s not only very knowledgeable but I love that she is honest!!! Highly recommend her!
Through a number of complications that Carolann had no control over, we spent five years fixing up a property that was donated to us and eventually placed on the market. It seems that everything that could go wrong did but Carolann was very patient and helpful as we worked through every issue that came up. We joke that Carolann gained a lot more experience working with our property than our commission paid her. Carolann will listen to your needs and help you get the best value available
We contacted Carolann Newton by phone, and talked with her about a home we were interested in. She was able to meet us the next day. Carolann did a great job advising us through the offer process. In addition to the great service we received we were impressed with the professionalism demonstrated. She provided expert guidance at every step of the home buying process. My husband and I felt completely confident with Carolann every step of the way. We are now home owners! Thanks Carolann Newton
She walked through the steps with me several times and provided useful references and additional homeowner information. Carolann never pressured or swayed me to make a decision. She was quick to follow up on details even through the holidays and while she had the flu. I liked how Carolann was not afraid to climb through crawl spaces and through the woods to help answer my questions. The closing for both properties went smoothly and I am happy to be living in my new home.
She never rushed me and never got frustrated with me when she sent me house after house to look at. I respected her opinion and her willingness to negotiate with my best interest at hand.
She goes above and beyond when helping you find your new home. I wouldn't go to anyone else!
Mr McKee negotiated with buying realtor to get a fair price. He kept us informed about negotiations, other potential buyers, the housing market in Anderson, etc.. He informed us about inspections, closing process, etc..
I have recommended her to my friends and they were also happy with her services! She does a great job and I would not hesitate to use her in the future!!
She is very professional and fast. You know you have a good realtor when she cares to get you in a house as much as you do!
She listened to what my interests were in a home as we started our search. She will not allow you to settle on your purchase... she observes your reactions as you're viewing a couple home... she starts to visiualize what you're looking for, even though you haven't put in words yet. I knew when I first met her, she had passion in what she does. At the time of our first encounter, I wasn't fully prepared to buy... but that time was coming very soon... and just like a home, I wanted to get the right fit with a real estate agent. Karen is the most down to earth person you can meet. She is ALSO determined to make things happen for you, if it's truly what you what. BUT, trust me. She nails it!! Don't get confused, she WILL NOT make empty promises or provide false expectations. Karen responded to all questions I had and has stated she will still here to answer any other that may come up. She has definitely made loyal client and I will market her services to anyone I know in the surrounding upstate area. Thanks Karen- nothing less than amazing!
It took us over 3 months to find the right home but Karen never pushed us or made us feel like a bother to her. She was flexible with her hours and was quick to get us into homes we requested to see. We also had to bring 4 young kids along for most of the showings but Karen just welcomed them in and worked to form a relationship with our kids as well. She took care of helping us buy and sell houses and made the process as pleasant as it could be. We would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a laid back but knowledgeable and reliable realtor.
We were very impressed with her abilities and professionalism
We had already relocated while our house was on the market and she made selling the house so easy! She went by the house to check on it, and after it was under contract she was there when people were coming and going and scheduled everything for us. She made the selling process easy! I would highly recommend her if you are buying or selling your home!!
She held my hand and guided me towards finding my FIRST house, and followed up with me consistently to make sure I had all my ducks in a row, and led me right through closing with a smile on her face (and mine). My kids and I will be grateful to Elaine for the rest of our lives. ????????????
She was flexible with our schedule as we were coming from out of state, working with us over several weekends on our wide-ranging search around the Upstate. She was also very patient with us and gracefully waited during my methodical approach to the search. We are glad we contracted with her and would not hesitate to recommend her to others
Both of them highly recommended her. It was only natural that I called her to sell my house and help me find a new one. Selling my house was an emotional process, as it was following my husband's passing. She was supportive of my fragile state and yet direct with providing information. She kept me on track throughout the whole process and was always responsive. We were presented with some new challenges that she tackled head on. She handled all the details throughout every step of the process, from hiring the photographer/videographer to providing contractor information when needed. Carolann was even responsive while on vacation. In the end, working with Carolann was the best realtor experience I've had and I now consider her a friend as well. I highly recommend Carolann Newton and her Team!
Would definitely recommend!
Hal McKee with Jackson Stanley Realtors was a superb choice as our realtor during our home buying process. His experience in the business provided us with great references for our needs, as well as additional insight in regards to the home buying process. Hal was very responsive to any questions we had during the process, and he was exceptionally quick and understanding of our time crunch. I would definitely recommend Hal McKee though Jackson Stanley Realtors, and would request his services again in the future with no hesitation!
The next day we got an email from Carolann offering her assistance with helping us find our first home. Within 2 months, we found our dream house that Carolann found for us within our price range & closed on the house. I don't have experience in realty, but Carolann is truly a wonderful, caring & professional woman. We thank God for her & her assistance. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy a home. Thank you
Thanks to her hard work we our back in Ohio with our family. Couldn’t ask for a better agent & now a friend!
Gives good advice and gets the listing sold!
I have used her from a buyer’s and a seller’s standpoint, and she surpassed all of my expectations each time. She kept me informed throughout the entire process and always responded in a timely manner. She was a strong advocate for her client and she made the process painless and easy. I was most impressed by her efficiency and execution. I would recommend her as a realtor over and over again.
She was caring, very timely in her responses , patient with all my questions, helpful and fought for what I wanted every step of the way!! I would highly recommend her to anyone and her mortgage lender that she works with !
She really helped us to find the right home for us and was extremely patient and flexible in the process. We appreciated her hard work! ????
She listened and delivered and we even closed within 30 days. I know there are a lot of realtors to chose from but if you are looking for someone who cares about you it is this girl!!
We would recommend her if you need a home.
Carolann Newton is the epitome of what a person wants in a realtor. Carolann went above and beyond our expectations, and truly had our best interest, as buyers, at heart. She was thorough in explaining the home buying process, what to expect, and the best way for my husband and I to achieve it. I can’t rave enough about the communication (calls, emails, texts, etc.) between us, which is imperative when purchasing or selling a home. All questions were answered promptly and professionally. Spot on recommendations were provided when external experts were needed – all of whom were very qualified and knowledgeable contributors. Overall, Carolann made us feel like we were her number one priority by keeping us informed and constantly involved. Carolann provided us with an outstanding home-buying experience that was personalized down to last minute of closing!! We are so pleased and confident with Carolann’s performance, we will continue to use her services to market existing properties and homes. Kudos and job well done!
My family and I were very happy with our choice to work with Carolann! We were not easy buyers given our family situation, both having full time jobs with two young boys (3 yrs. and 6 months), so we really got to see Carolann perform in all aspects of real estate; local knowledge, expertise, responsiveness, negotiation skills and care. I added care, because not only did Carolann possess all of the skills we were looking for, she really cared about my family's best interests. We found the perfect home for us and this would not have happened without Carolann. I would highly recommend Carolann to friends, family and anyone looking for an exceptional realtor. Less
She constantly had a new list of properties to look at that would meet my needs and style. She is very knowledgeable and was helpful throughout the whole process from the very first day, while looking at houses, all the in between paperwork, up to the day we closed on the property. I would highly recommend her professional services.
As a young couple searching for our first home and our first time making a "BIG" purchase with lots of decisions i thought it was going to be so stressful and i had no clue what to expect! Carolann made it such a smooth process and took her time showing us many houses for months and months til I was 100% satisfied. She was avaiable anytime to show us any house, even on weekends she would make time to meet with us. She made the experience wonderful and we worked with her from January 2009 to October 2009 looking at houses til we found the perfect house that satisfied me, my husband, and our price range. We have been in our house for almost 3 years now and it was one of the best decisions we ever made! Carolann will be the only person we recommend and will use her again if we ever move or sell!
He was always upfront and honest and helped every step of the way. Verified by RateMyAgent
Loved how assertive they were in our process.
She really looks out for her clients, and has their best interests in mind! I appreciate everything she did to help me! She was on top of every issue that arose, and was very quick to respond to our questions and needs. I would recommend her to anyone who wants an agent who will make sure everything is right!
She has even called months after to make sure you are satisfied with your new home and to make sure everything is going ok. She really cares about the people she serves, helps, or whatever name you would like to call it. Carolann is awesome! Couldn't have asked for a better person and experience!
We were looking for a larger home, as we have had to move a parent in due to health issues. We were living in a two bedroom, one bath home. We have one teenage child, Moving in the mother was suppose to be temporary, but has become permanent due to being on oxygen and her becoming worse in health. We had to clear out our dining room, and create her a bedroom. We were so cramped in a home that was less than a 1000 sq ft. I told Carolann what we were looking for. The home we bought is so much more than we ever could have imagined living in. We went from less than a 1000 sq ft, to 2300 sq ft, and on 4.5 acres, in a very nice subdivision. The home was a foreclosure, but in very good condition. We decided to go USDA. It is a nightmare. But, with Carolann knowing the “in's and out's” of how USDA worked, she made us feel at ease through the whole process. She was there for us every step of the way. Buying a home is stressful, but if you have a good realtor, it doesn't have to be. I have had several co-workers who have been looking at buying, and watched us as we went through the process, and said they want Carolann as their realtor when they do buy. There are many steps in the process of buying. There is financing, termite inspections, home inspections, appraisals, negotiations if something comes back on an inspection. She helped us through it all. We have had a realtor before, but they can not hold a candle to her. She is upfront and honest. She tells you your options, and lets you make the decision. We learned a lot from her. She knows the laws of real estate. There is no gray area for her. If you decide to list or sell, you can't go wrong with Carolann. She will work hard for you and earns your business and respect.
if we decide to every sale this house we will be calling Karen stokes we try several realtor an they gave us the run around Karen found the right home for us in a timely manner
! Very helpful motivated and trustworthy! As soon as I would call her to let her know I was interested in a home she was on the phone scheduling a viewing! If I ever have to sell my home and buy another she will be the first person I call!! I have recommended her to several of my friends and will continue to do so!
I am incredibly impressed with your knowledge, professionalism and amazing attention to detail. You have presented many alternatives, suggestions, and ideas to increase the exposure of our home sale. I have complete confidence in your ability to efficiently manage the sale of our new construction home in Conyers, Georgia. You have been very responsive keeping us informed with potential buyers, offers, and even comments that can be used to improve the appeal of our home. You did a fantastic job keeping everyone on schedule and ensuring that I received all of the necessary paperwork to make the sale smooth and painless. You were extremely helpful in arranging for the builder repairs, termite inspection, appliance installation, and even general “watch” on the house - anything that needed to be done to complete a sale. Since we live out of town, without your help in these arrangements, things would not have gotten done. I think one of your most impressive attributes is the willingness to do anything to complete the sale for your client… your time, and volunteering to paint the house yourself to please the potential buyer. You have been a joy to work with and feel we’ve made a friend in the realty business. I enthusiastically recommend you as the only choice for a great realtor. Thank you again, Warren and Donna Colorado
She told us everything we needed to know and gave us tips on selling our home. She had our home sold in 1 day!! And we closed in less than a month. If you are looking for a realtor call Elaine.
She works hard to get you a home as soon as possible and doesn’t mind answering questions.
I would recommend her to anyone she has a great personality, very friendly, very nice and will be straight forward with you if she thinks something is wrong she will tell you but will not pressure you into doing something you don’t want to do like some realtors! Thanks, Ceceli!
We felt she was personable, knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile. She did a great job!
During and after the purchase she helped us settle in while we were traveling from Alaska. You won't regret it! Best of luck to all!
When everyone else turned their back on us, she came around and helped us through. She found a way for us. Even when my husband and I wanted to give up she wouldn’t let us. She told us “ I would do anything to get you guys into your dream house “ and she did. And for that we would forever be grateful to Cynthia. And we do plan to continue working with her in the future. Thank you Cynthia!!!!
I have used several Realtors and Carolann is the best. She knows the selling cycle well, knows what gets attention like tours and decorating ideas. The most recent home sold in less than 90 days and went very smooth. Carolann and her team were very responsive and had several showings early.
From the very beginning process to the very end Cynthia was a professional and efficient agent. All aspects of selling and purchasing were explained with precise detail. Cynthia used a variety of resources to get us what we were looking for. She was also keenly aware of all of our must and needs. The entire closing process went very smoothly considering we were out of state purchasers. Her ambitious ethic represents the integrity and commitment to all of her clients and I strongly recommend Cynthia for all of your real estate needs.”
We looked at a house near my current home that had bullet holes in the windows and she wasn't shy about telling me that it was most likely someone in the neighborhood
She was amazing and made our process less stressful and confusing.
