Carol Marin is outstanding. She helped us buy our first property in Asheville in 2015. Since then, she has also helped us sell that property and buy 2 others. During these 4 successful transactions, Carol has operated with the highest level of service, integrity, expertise, and a caring heart. She understands the importance of attention to detail, follow through, and is an excellent and timely communicator. Several of our transactions involved significant repairs during the due diligence period. Carol knew exactly who to call to get the work done professionally, on budget, and on time. This was a great relief. We are so grateful to have her as trusted resource for our family’s real estate needs.”  S. Christofalos

“I’m putting out a HUGE recommendation for the BEST realtor in Asheville, NC, bar NONE! Whether you’re thinking of relocating to and/or selling a property here in Asheville, NC, and/or the surrounding communities, you MUST reach out to Carol Marin. She worked VERY hard to procure our home for us here in Biltmore Forest a couple of years ago. We not only loved living here, but did a complete renovation on the property and, given the market conditions, decided to test the waters and sell. WOW! We got within 5% of our asking price…ALL IN LESS THAN ONE WEEK! She hired the best photographer, videographer, marketing promotional materials, hosted a Broker’s Open House and assisted with our neighborhood Holiday Open House. I have nothing but praise for her work and thorough professionalism. So, if you need to know what your home is worth, have any questions about market conditions, what renovations you might want to make that yield the highest returns, or are looking to purchase here, CAROL’S YOUR PERSON! You will NOT be disappointed!” J. Olson

“Carol, thank you for getting our home SOLD (in just 4 days) and getting us into the new home we had wanted for a long time. You again demonstrated your great understanding, experience, caring and follow through that has helped us buy and sell 5 properties.  I highly recommend your services.” T. Good

“I must say, if you are looking for a GREAT real estate agent in the Asheville area you must contact Carol Marin. She is truly a professional, has an arsenal of contacts, and goes above and beyond the call of duty by guiding you through the process. This is especially helpful when you are not familiar with the North Carolina Market. She is patient, understanding, thoughtful, knowledgeable, but most of all she is organized. Carol hooked us up with all the right people to make our two closings seamless. My husband and I would highly recommend her.” M. Legros

“Carol exceeded our expectations in every way. She went above and beyond and when we ran into challenges or curveballs she came up with solutions. Her communication was exceptional and she worked quickly to get us what we needed. I don’t think we could have had our offer accepted and completed the purchase successfully with any other realtor!” D. Cormia

“Carol is simply the best! Easy to work with. Clear communicator. Knowledgeable. Our house sold immediately.”  C. Bohanan

“Carol helped us find our first house in a fast moving and competitive market. Our ideal date to close by was a quick turnaround from when we first began looking and we wouldn’t have been able to pull it off without Carol’s expertise and ability to keep things moving forward.  She knows the right moves to make and is always incredibly quick, communicative, and on top of things as they pop up. She is well connected and we had a great team of people helping us with every aspect of the home buying process thanks to her. She is also an Asheville native and brings an extensive knowledge of the area to the table. We would definitely recommend Carol to others in search of a new home and if we ever decide to move, she will be hearing from us!” A. Garvick

“We have worked with Carol twice now, once when we bought our home in Weaverville and then when we sold it four years later. Carol really guided us through the whole process and is extremely knowledgeable about the greater Asheville area. We continually relied on her sound judgment and expertise in making decisions about pricing, negotiating with buyers, etc…Her advice ensured that we got a competitive price for our home. We would certainly work with her again in a heartbeat.”  S. Russo

“Carol was very easy to work with.  She has wonderful communication skills and I never had to follow up with her for information. Though I had added complexities of selling a home from out of state and working with a property manager, this was the smoothest real estate transaction I have ever had.  I highly recommend Carol to care for all of your real estate needs!”  S. Johnson

“With Carol’s guidance and knowledge of the North Asheville market, we were able to have our home under contract in four days. She is a great teammate to have as you navigate the often thorny issues when selling your home.” V. Lane

“Best realtor ever! It was a pleasure working with Carol. She was professional, knowledgeable and took care of every detail throughout the process of selling our home in just six days. We were comforted knowing that she was on our team as the sellers rather than playing a dual role for both parties and continually gave us feedback. We would definitely recommend Carol.”  L. Haller


“CAROL ROCKS!!! She helped us sell our home and find and buy our new home. She was on top of everything from the beginning to the end, and even offered information and suggestions to things that we didn’t think to ask about. She is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and processes. A true professional and very thorough with every little detail. Carol is also a great resource for other professionals needed in the buying/selling process. We feel that she went above and beyond what we expected from an agent, making sure that all of the steps we needed were accomplished in a timely manner. Always patient and kind, even in difficult situations, we would highly recommend her to anyone”. L. Crivaro

“Carol was truly an amazing person to work with for buying a new home! I have worked with a few realtors in the past, and none of them compare. She was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. I am a first time home buyer, and I know without a doubt, that I would not be in the home I am now without Carol’s help. She went above and beyond what I have seen many realtors do. She helped walk me through the process and was always there for me. If I had any questions, concerns, and needed recommendations for anything, she immediately was able to provide me with an answer or at most a few hours to find out. I recommend her to anyone I know. Truly a joy to work with”.   K. Miller

“Carol is by far the best real estate professional I have ever worked with. She understands that selling your house is really selling your home. She has great advice and ALWAYS responds promptly to questions. She was invaluable to us in our recent house sale and I can recommend her without reservation!”   D. Cauley

Carol Marin did a masterful job of first, locating potential properties for us to visit and consider and secondly, handling the negotiations with the seller. All properties we reviewed were excellent choices and we are delighted to have successfully purchased our first choice. Once negotiations were finalized, Carol made recommendations for closing attorney and prospective lenders. She also followed up with inspections. We’re very pleased with her efforts and professionalism and would gladly recommend her to others.  D. Creel

Carol went way above and beyond what I would expect from a Real Estate Agent. She knew the market, gave us insightful guidance during negotiations and was a pleasure to work with. Living out of state we had to rely on Carol to manage many of the logistical issues during the inspection and close process. She went above and beyond and made sure everything was taken care of for a successful close. I would highly recommend Carol for your real estate needs.  D Rothstein

We worked with Carol for over two years and finally had the opportunity to both sell and purchase with her. She’s professional, caring and does her best to communicate all the necessary information during the process of selling and buying.  P. Martino

It was a pleasure to work with Carol. Adjectives to describe her would include: professional, communicative, helpful, knowledgeable, patient and kind. Our family recently moved to the Asheville area from out of state. Despite this being our third home purchase, it was our first in North Carolina. Carol was attentive in guiding us through the buying process here, and we are thrilled with our new home. Carol was thorough and followed through with all the details. She made this home buying experience a smooth and pleasant one; many thanks to her.  D. Kardos

I feel very lucky to have met Carol Marin. She surely must be the best real estate agent in her area. She listened carefully to what we were looking for and found quite a few houses that met the criteria. We saw two houses the first day we arrived in town, and many more after that. Carol was never impatient and was always searching for other houses for us to see. She was knowledgeable about the various areas in which we were looking, about the process, about the nuances of making an offer and negotiating, and about what needed to be done and when. Carol kept on top of things, made appointments for us, never forgot to do what she promised to do, and kept in touch by phone, text, and e-mail. We finally found the perfect house. We highly recommend her. If you work with Carol, I think you will be sure to find your perfect house.  A. Dacuba

Carol was very knowledgeable and responsive. We had a first class experience from start to finish. We highly recommend Carol to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Asheville.  S. Christofalos

Carol is a lovely lady with great skills. She is very easy to work with and we enjoyed the time we spent with her. Carol is honest and worked very hard to find the right place for us. We are now getting moved into our new home and loving our North Carolina vacation house. We hope to be here often in the coming years. Many thanks to Carol for taking such great care of her Alabama clients.  R. Herring

Working with Carol was such a wonderful experience. My husband and I are both busy working professionals and we keep long hours. Carol was always more than willing to work around our crazy schedule. She went above and beyond to help make finding the right investment property as painless as possible. She understood our needs and did not waste our time with properties that would not work for us. I can’t say enough good things about our experience.  L. Thompson

We are first time home owners, and working with Carol was incredibly helpful. We attempted to buy a home without a realtor a few months before we began working with Carol, and it was a very overwhelming and frustrating process. Carol was consistently patient and prompt in all her interactions with us over the months we searched. We visited numerous houses around our area, and Carol worked hard to tailor the houses to our interests. She helped us compare and contrast the merits of properties, and answered copious questions about features.When we finally decided on a home and began the buying process, Carol was a tremendous asset. She helped us contact reliable and affordable inspectors, make reasonable offers and counters, and coordinated much of the inspection and repair work on our behalf while we were at work. She’s also maintained support with us after purchase through mediating with the other agent to have signage removed and recommending contractors for future projects. We couldn’t have made it to homeownership without her.  M. Greener

Carol recently helped my Husband Paul and I find a beautiful home in Black Mountain, NC that is perfect for us. She listened to our needs and did not push us into a different price range. She was in contact with us via e-mail, text, and phone. Carol went out of her way to make the home finding enjoyable and we found our home quickly.  M. Hadnagy

Carol took time to deduce what type of house we were looking for, showed us several, rethought her strategy, nipped and tucked our original search and voila! We found a home we loved. Then she walked us through each stage of negotiations with the sellers using her years of experience and knowledge. We were able to purchase the perfect house for us. And, she is our first friend in the Asheville area. L. Casperson

“Carol, I feel sure that you think you were just doing your job as you always do – but your efficient, thorough, and pleasant ways of resolving potential issues went far beyond the call of duty. I want to convey our sincere thanks for making a complex home purchase seem simple, allowing us to concentrate on family.”   N. Waldman

“Carol Marin was extremely kind and helpful with our search and ultimate purchase of the property. She knows the Asheville area well and she takes time to learn her client’s interests and needs before introducing them to the many different types of properties available in the area. We strongly recommend Carol as your realtor; she is extremely patient and has a sweet and wonderful personality”.    J Murphy

“Carol is fantastic – honestly, if you’re considering an agent in western NC, she is the way to go. She’s honest, helpful in any capacity whatsoever, and willing to be available at just about any time you need her”!   K. Gaylord

“As I was an absentee owner I had many reservations about the selling process; however, Carol’s knowledge of the area and process put my fears to rest. She presented a professional listing packet including lovely descriptions and pictures of the home. Her expertise ensured this was a painless and even pleasurable event. Needless to say I had multiple showings and offers. I was able to complete most of this process from 800 miles away with few concerns. Way to go Carol”   L Simmons

“Our new home was listed for sale in Beverly Hills on a Monday.  We were under contract 24 hours later.  We searched this area for two years and could have missed this opportunity to buy if it wasn’t for Carol.   She’s miles ahead of other realtors.”   P Mack

“Carol, we are THRILL.LL.LL.LED!!!!!!! We will always be so grateful to you for your professionalism, support, humor, and all-round wonderfulness. Thank you!!!!!”  The Cortes

“When I decided to move to the Asheville area in 2010, I was drawn by both the beauty of the mountains and the city’s cultural diversity. But I knew very little about the many local communities and what they had to offer. Carol gave generously of her time to educate me about the area, while listening carefully to my own personal goals and preferences. I have worked with many realtors over the years, but Carol is the best! With her able assistance, I was able to find the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood. I could not be better satisfied!”  S. Stewart

“Working with Carol was a pleasant surprise. I felt that she really was interested in knowing my wants and needs for my future home. She was a good listener, excellent communicator and advisor on the technical details on the financial end of purchasing a home. It didn’t take her long to find the perfect community and home that fit my requirements. She is a role model for what a good realtor should be. If you need a Realtor that knows their business and the Asheville area, then Carol is the person for you.”  J. Roth

“Carol Marin is very knowledgeable about Asheville real estate and works hard to find the right fit for her clients. She helped me find a wonderful mid-century home in Asheville, guided me through the long-distance negotiations and final documents, and, as I had not yet arrived, and helped coordinate the renovation”.  R. Teller

“As first time homebuyers, my husband and I approached this process heavily relying on Carol and she did not disappoint. To us the most important and impressive thing was that even when Carol had helped us find a home, she only increased her involvement and helpfulness throughout the Due Diligence period leading to us closing on time. She went above and beyond in her assistance to make this process as easy as possible and we would strongly recommend her to anyone who asks!”  The Rennies

“Carol walked me through buying my dream home and when I started renovations was a big help in referring me to the appropriate people for the job. She has quite a network of people who can get the job done. She also helped me sell the house I was living in. Besides the qualities listed above she is very personable, calm and patient. She’s great”!   D. Greene

“Your dedication, professionalism and commitment to “going the extra mile” were demonstrated each time we met or had discussions over the phone during the selling process. I could not have asked for a better relationship or working arrangement with a realtor. I thank you deeply for your commitment, support and most of all for selling my house in a timely fashion and at the price I needed. Carol- Thank you so much for giving me my life back”!   C.. Hamachek

One thought on “Client Reviews

  1. The Herrings

    It would be difficult to find an agent as engaged and helpful as Carol. She is a professional in every sense of the word. When selling our home in
    Asheville, she relieved us of so much stress as we had to return home during the selling process. There were a number of showings and Carol
    made certain that the lights were one and everything was in perfect order for the next agent. We are so very grateful and would recommend Carol for your selling and buying needs. She became a wonderful friend and we will always treasure her friendship. Don & Rochelle Herring
