The Wish List

Everyone has a wish list for their ideal home.  For some it is a fenced back yard, for others it is maid’s wish-list1quarters with a separate entrance, which my listing on Weddington currently has.  The point is that wish list is uniquely suited to your families needs and as a Realtor that is what I’m interested in, your needs.

When ever I meet with new clients I like to spend time with them getting to know what their dreams are as well as what their concerns are.  I know there are Realtors who are on a more conveyor belt time line, so they can create more volume.  I’m not interested in that kind of real estate.  I’m interested in matching real people with the real estate of their dreams.  That can’t happen unless I know what the dream is.  Dreams don’t belong in a volume business. 

Call me old fashioned but I still believe in good old fashioned customer service, I like to pair it with state of the art technology to give my clients the best real estate experience available.  I’m Carol Wolfe and nobody does it better.

Times have changed and so has business.  Like any other business the real estate business has evolved with growing technology.  It’s important to have a real estate agent who has also kept up with the technological advances.  But how do you know if your realtor is technologically savvy? Simply ask them if they are e-PRO certified!

e-PRO is a distinction reserved for realtors who have completed a specific course designed for real estate professionals and endorsed by the National Association of Realtors.  The course is tailored specifically for realtors to keep them abreast of the technological tools and advancements available to realtors.

Working with an e-PRO offers significant benefits for a home buyer or seller:


An e-PRO certified internet professional is adept at keeping your information safe from internet piracy.  They respect your privacy and have the tools to keep your valuable information safe.


A trained e-PRO can provide you instantly with extensive data on neighborhoods, property listings, up to the minute market updates, referral networks, on-line home tours, and faxes by email.  All of this information is available to you as a client, on demand both in the office and on location.

Cost Effectiveness
An e-PRO can maximize your home’s internet presence to effectively market your home in less time, using less paper, and less travel.  With on-line tours clients can effectively tour a home from another city or country saving valuable time and resources to narrow their search.

Working with an e-PRO is the best way to ensure that your real estate transaction is smooth, efficient and effective. I am Carol Wolfe a registered e-PRO realtor.  Nobody does it better.
