I grew up in a small Tennessee town near Memphis. Raised with a strong work ethic and value system, I believe you treat others as you want to be treated.
With a B.A. in Communication Design from the University of Tennessee, I worked as an ad agency art director, graphic designer, and in marketing and sales prior to making my career change into real estate. Real estate was a natural career move for me with my background, my passion for helping people and my love for houses and design.
I am doggedly determined to do the best job for my clients. I take them by the hand and guide them through the many decisions involved in selling or buying a house to put more money in their pockets with the smoothest, hassle free experience possible. What I enjoy most about real estate is forming relationships with people and having the privilege of helping them make wise decisions about the largest financial purchase of their lives. As a Strategic Pricing Specialist, I educate clients on current market conditions and competition so they have a pricing strategy to get the most net for heir house.
I’ve lived in Atlanta, Knoxville and Chapel Hill before moving to Raleigh and after thirty plus years I am proud to call it my home. This area is exceptional not only for career opportunities, but for our cultural, sports and recreational options available. My husband, Cary Strickland, and I enjoy boating and fishing on our wealth of lakes, rivers and beautiful coastline, all close by.
I support the NC Museum of Art, Convoy of Hope, and Wounded Warrior Project as well as local initiatives like Journey Bags for WAke County foster children. Youth missions are important to me and I support sending youth to help people in North Carolina and around the globe.
Very impressed! I'm beyond happy that we chose Carolyn Strickland as our buyer's agent. Expansive knowledge of not only the greater Raleigh area, but the home buying process and strategies as well. From the beginning, Carolyn was exceptionally prompt with responses and was accessible around the clock. She is up to date with computer applications/technology and made all document signature and processes beyond easy. As a Marine Corps officer that was about to retire, I had not only moved and utilized real estate agents numerous times, I was very particular. Carolyn not only exceeded my expectations, but she is by far the best agent that I've encountered or used. She has my personal utmost recommendation and I thank her for getting me and my family in our dream home!
Carolyn was such a wonderful help! I was selling my Dads house after he passed away, which was hard to do. She was so helpful and understanding of the emotions involved. And having someone who knew the real estate market was great!
Carolyn was such a great realtor who helped us purchase our first home. She was patient, knowledgeable, prepared, and hard working. She always had our best interest in mind, even if that meant we walked away from submitting an offer. I really enjoyed working with Carolyn and will definitely work with her again. I would recommend Carolyn to those looking for homes in the RTP area and for first time buyers.
