Carolyn is a native Texan who grew up in the Park Cities area of Dallas and then graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2002 where she obtained a Bachelor of the Arts degree in Sociology. She is now an established broker associate at Compass Real Estate with the Skyles Smith Luxury Group combining over 21 years of experience with her local market expertise to always serve the best interests of her clients. The key to Carolyn’s success lies in her philosophy: real estate will always be more about people than property. Listening to her client's wants, needs and concerns come first, and the right property will follow.
She is passionately committed to delivering luxury-level service to all of her buyers and sellers with the ultimate goal of exceeding their expectations. Her collaborative yet competitive approach to negotiating enables her to garner the most favorable terms for her clients, while still achieving a “win-win” for both parties in a transaction. She has an extensive social network and utilizes creative out-of-the-box thinking and cutting-edge technology to effectively and strategically market properties. Whether buying or selling, her clients appreciate her enthusiastic hard-working nature, patient dedication, and genuine desire to place their dreams and goals above all else. Although Carolyn specializes in selling luxury properties in West and Central Austin, her broad curated knowledge of numerous neighborhoods qualifies her to represent clients throughout the entire city.
Being actively involved in her community is very important to Carolyn as she has previously co-led her daughter’s Girl Scout troop and has been a member of numerous organizations such as the Ballet Austin Guild and the Women’s Symphony League, and helps support the Breast Cancer Resource Center of Austin. Carolyn lives in downtown Austin and enjoys traveling, biking, lake activities, and spending time with her daughter, friends and her dog, Winston.
