Carolyn joined Terra Firma’s Santa Rosa Office in 2016. With over 15 years of providing a superior level of personalized customer service, she knows the key to success is carefully listening to her clients needs and then finding solutions to fit their unique situation.
Originally from Santa Barbara, California, Carolyn’s first career in commercial aviation blessed her with the opportunity to meet her husband, travel the world and experience living in many different environments including overseas. Buying and selling a home can be an emotional time. Her personal experience, allow her to empathize with her clients given the number of times she has relocated herself. Carolyn quotes: As a greek philosopher once said, “Change is the only constant in life” Amen! I can attest to that. We are all constantly evolving and changing. As our needs change so do the places we call “home”.
Post 9/11, Carolyn took early retirement from her airline career returning to school to earn her degree in Interior Design. With her long standing passion for architecture and design, this path was a wonderful opportunity to further explore those areas. She first worked with an award winning Scottsdale AZ interior design firm that specialized in high end residential and model home merchandising before forming her own design studio in 2005.
After years of designing the interiors of clients homes, the progression towards real estate seemed like a very good fit so in 2013, she embraced the challenge and added “Realtor” to her resume. ”My goal is simply to provide the best personalized service whether my clients are buying or selling a home” says Carolyn. To do so, she treats every client as though they were her only client. She provides open communication throughout the buying or selling transaction. She oversees the details, anticipates any potential problems before they arise and makes sure each transaction runs as smoothly as possible with the least amount of stress for all parties involved. Carolyn believes the best part of her job as a Realtor is that many of her clients become friends after the business is closed.
When not working on real estate, she enjoys spending time with family (including their adopted beagle, Betty). As aviation is a big part of their family, she loves to travel. Carolyn speaks fluent French, takes pride and pleasure in cooking & entertaining, likes bike riding, golf and long walks with Betty at her side.
