See what clients have said about working with Carolyn.

Conrad T.

Working with Carolyn was a seamless process whereby she brought her decades long years of experience and contacts to the table. I was floored particularly by her ability to get me in to places within even an hour of asking her to show me a place and the fact that she knows everyone - front title, loan, inspectors, etc. it made what is usually a very stressful process so much easier. Her uncanny ability to make me at ease and pressure free when other agents would just want to close a sale as quickly as possible made me feel like I had the room to make the right decision versus a quick one. She loves what she does, and it shows based off of how easily it comes to her - cannot stress enough how much I would recommend Carolyn to future clients. She is a class act and a true professional. Thank you, Carolyn, for finding me my dream home (for now) and so looking forward to working with you to find my next.

I would like to offer my utmost recommendation of Carolyn. You would expect a real estate transaction, while living in another state, to be complicated, but that wasn’t the case with Carolyn’s guidance. Her expertise of the market was evident from our first contact and became instrumental in our ability to navigate the process from afar. She was patient, clear in her communications, and quick to respond. Additionally, she helped us make decisions, stood in for us at appointments, and provided great contacts for services that were needed. Carolyn will be our first call the next time we have any real estate needs in the Austin area.

I met Carolyn at an open house last fall. Although I wasn't in the market at the time, I knew I would ask her to be my agent when I was ready to start looking. I recently began my search and couldn't be happier with the results. I knew I would need the help of an expert while negotiating the difficult Austin market, and Carolyn came through with flying colors. Her honesty, intelligence and in-depth knowledge of real estate are the reasons that I was able to buy my dream home. I look forward to living there for many years to come and believe that I owe it all to Carolyn's expertise and considerable experience. I will always recommend her to anyone who is looking for a dedicated and knowledgeable Realtor.

Jordan and Samantha C.

Starting the search for a new home in Austin was a daunting prospect, I wasn't sure at that point if we definitely wanted to move. After speaking with Carolyn Skyles, a realtor referred to me by a good friend, my mind was set at ease, and I was super excited to start our next adventure. Carolyn, right from the very first conversation, has been nothing short of amazing. She's calm, level headed, knows the market like the back of her hand and guided us through the process with an honesty that is often lacking in this market. Carolyn took the time to really understand what we were looking for, and guided us to houses she knew we would really love. She has impeccable taste, she's super smart, and she helped us so much during the negotiation process. We thought she was so amazing, we have already recommended her to our family, and they've loved working with her too - they found their dream home! I can safely say that I would recommend her to anyone, she's fantastic!

Janie and I want to thank you again for helping us sell our townhouse on Steck Ave. I have never known a multi-faceted transaction to proceed more smoothly and in such a remarkably short period of time. You can be assured that we will call upon you in the future when the assistance of a Realtor is needed.

Tony and Gina S.

When I think back to the challenge we put before Carolyn, her performance was nothing short of rock star material. We arrived from out of state to a location we have never seen and asked her to find and negotiate a house in under one week's time. She cleared her schedule and thoroughly made us feel like we were in great hands with her wealth of knowledge of the area. She was extremely responsive which meant the world to us given our tight deadline. On top of that, the owners of the home we were interested in were living abroad and the seller's agent was extremely hard to reach. Carolyn worked diligently through what must have been one frustrating detail after another to make this happen for us. She came through for us in such a big way! We will absolutely be working with Carolyn again on our next move.

Stephen and Amy M.

We could not have asked for a better agent! We were not living anywhere near Texas when we started our house hunt, but that proved to be no issue at all. Carolyn took the initiative to visit properties we were interested in, and she would send thorough videos to us, allowing us to get a good feel for the layout and flow of the house. If we wanted to see more detail, she’d promptly head back to the property to record more footage or get us on FaceTime for a live walk-through. Carolyn was proactive every step of the way, and she was always looking out for our best interests. She would email the lender or the seller updates and important questions before we had the chance to think of them. She helped us navigate some precarious situations and was always our steady advocate. Furthermore, she was readily available whenever we felt the need to discuss something - whether we had questions or needed to talk through various scenarios. We felt that she treated our needs as a top priority, and she believed that every question or concern we had was valid. She was a fantastic partner to help us search for our Austin home!

William and Rebecca C.

To say that Carolyn was an excellent Realtor is an understatement. She was always responsive when we had questions and kept us thoroughly informed throughout the process. We feel incredibly fortunate to have had Carolyn representing us. She’s caring, knowledgeable and fought for our best interests every step of the way. Thank you, Carolyn!

Not only did Carolyn sell my previous home (in six days), she also helped me through the process of buying a new home. Decision-making is not my forte, and it took me 18 months to find the home of my dreams; Carolyn never wavered. On the contrary, she was patient and determined. She is an incredibly hard worker, meticulous, and professional. She guided me through the process of buying and selling, making potentially arduous situations almost palatable. I highly recommend Carolyn.

I am writing this letter to let you know about the wonderful experience I had using Carolyn Skyles as my Realtor. She was my listing agent and helped me look for another property to purchase before I decided to move to Houston. From start to finish, Carolyn proved to be extremely knowledgeable about the Austin real estate market and how to best present my property to prospective buyers. She gave me a good idea about where the current prices were while still allowing me to draw my own conclusions and set the marks. She really went above and beyond in guiding me through the staging process (it looked so good I almost didn't want to sell!) Her marketing materials were top-notch. I felt like the property tours, “word-of- mouth" marketing, mailers, open houses, etc., really exposed my property to the widest range of potential buyers. Additionally, when a few issues arose with the home warranty repairs prior to closing, she stepped in and made sure that everything was taken care of properly. She was able to sell my property at the level I had hoped for in a shorter period of time than the others in my neighborhood. When I'm able to move back to Austin, she will absolutely be receiving my repeat business!

Carolyn Skyles is a small package wrapped with a complete and trustworthy professional appearance inside and out. Her professional approach in all aspects of the selling process from presentation and negotiation resulted in a speedy and smooth close. We have bought and sold numerous homes while relocating to different parts of the US. She stands out as a diamond in the rough among the other realtors who we have worked with. Thank you again, Carolyn!

Mark and Beth W.

Carolyn, thanks for being our “Realtor Extraordinaire!” I don’t think I would have survived this last purchase without your help. We are so glad we’ve partnered with you on the last 3 purchases- here’s to more!

I recently sold my property in Austin, TX with Carolyn Skyles as my listing agent. I would like to share with you the experience I had and provide feedback on the impressive results and capabilities delivered by Carolyn. I actually met Carolyn 3 years ago before my international assignment move with my company, IBM, to China. At that time I had decided not to sell (due to financial reasons) but was still very impressed with the preparedness and thoroughness of my introductory meeting with Carolyn - compared to the other realtors that I interviewed. So when I decided to sell 3 years later, Carolyn was the first person I called. Since I was still in China, Carolyn supported me in selling my home remotely - quickly responding and clearly communicating with email, helping to qualify painters & carpenters and inspecting their work afterwards, providing advice and recommendations from very far away (with 12 hour time difference), ensuring the buyers who did not have an agent delivered as needed- and meeting all deadlines and milestones on time and with quality. Carolyn went above and beyond what I expected and could have even imagined. I was incredibly impressed with Carolyn Skyles. Thank you. An extremely satisfied client, Sara E.

Richard D.

Carolyn patiently worked with me as I look for a reasonably sized home at a price that was right for me. She was always readily available, incredibly patient with tours and questions, and eventually helped close on my condo without a hitch. I couldn't have asked for a smoother process.
