She appreciates being an integral part of the transaction whether it’s with a first-time homebuyer who is excited and sometimes emotional or closing with an experienced real estate business professional.

Carolyn has been married to her husband Steve for twenty-one years. She actually met him while being his escrow officer when he was buying a home. They have a daughter Nicole who is a sophomore at The University of Missouri and also a son named Christopher who is a senior at Grossmont High school.

When Carolyn isn’t working, you can find her with her family enjoying the outdoors. They enjoy hiking and camping in their motorhome. Her two kids continue to keep her very busy with school, sports, church, volunteering in the community and entertaining with friends. When her daughter is home from college they enjoy family time which includes games, puzzles and cooking.
