Barrett Sotheby's International Realty - Acton
Carole grew up in Falmouth on Cape Cod. She had the best childhood ever so it is no surprise that she developed a lifelong love of the ocean.
After graduating from Wheaton College in Norton, MA and getting married, Carole taught high school on the South Shore for 3 years. It was during those summer months that she bought her first house in her hometown. Having been influenced by her Grandmother who bought, lived in and sold multiple residences, Carole decided that owning a “piece of the Cape”, as small as it was, would insure she could always return. In reality she ended up renting the property for 30 years and doing a 1031 exchange for yet another property closer to Acton.
A year after buying her first house, Carole and her husband settled in Acton where they bought a home from Acton Real Estate. At that time there were only two choices to select from that they could afford, but the one they chose turned out to be a very happy home and one they lived in and eventually rented after building their current home. As it turned out Acton was a great location for her husband who commuted in a number of directions over the years.
While raising two young sons and substitute teaching in town, she decided to expand her financial education by studying tax preparation for 3 years and working for H&R Block during tax season. As her children grew, and she participated in their activities, she decided to begin a career in Real Estate Sales in 1987. After obtaining her license she chose to work locally at Acton Real Estate where she knew the owner.
She quickly discovered that Real Estate Sales is a very full time job, but satisfying helping others find their happiness in a home. Carole has a real desire to serve the best interest of her clients by respecting their budget, by educating them, and by keeping a close watch on the details of the transaction. She received her GRI (Graduate of Real Estate Institute) designation early on and continues to take courses relating to Real Estate to keep abreast in her field. Whether Buying or Listing residential or investment properties she will do her best to serve you.
Carole has the ability to clearly communicate statistics, graphs and common sense facts in teaching sellers and buyers what they need to know about current market conditions. She is a consistent award winning producer.
Happily married, mother of two grown sons and proud grandmother of five boys, Carole loves gardening, singing in her church choir, and traveling with her husband to the Caribbean and, of course, the Cape.
