"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 & 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! " - Stephen and Amy
"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 two purchases- here’s to more!

"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.

"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!
." - Lorraine
"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 processes of buying and selling, making potentially arduous situations almost palatable... I highly recommend Carolyn.
