Carolyn is a wonderful person to work with! She is is so nice, knowledgable, and full of life! If you want to buy a house Carolyn will do everything in her power to find you exactly what you are looking for with absolutley no pressure. If you want to sell a house she will make sure you sell it hassle free! She is a very enjoyable person to be around and will shoot you straight on any questions you have. She is an extermely hard worker because she strives to make her clients 100% happy!We have had a few realtors in the past and it wasn't so pleasant. Dont go down that road! Just give Carolyn a call and she will take care of you. Carolyn has one trait that tops all others. She is trustworthy! She will do right by you no matter what! She helped us buy a house we loved and she helped us sell it for a profit after only being on the market for 6 days! What else can we say...? She is the best!
I was moving from Oklahoma to Texas when my relocation company put me in touch with Carolyn. She immediately asked questions about my preferences and set to work sending me options. During my visits to Texas to look for homes she made optimal use of my time showing me homes that fit my needs. Given I was out of state she did many of the visits with inspectors (my first house failed inspection) and kept me informed at all times. The house I finally purchased had issues on the day of closing. Carolyn masterfully negotiated a resolution instead of walking away, which the other agent seemed happy to do, and it's because of her I'm in a home I absolutely LOVE. She's amazing and was recommended by a friend of mine - not only would I recommend her, I'd recommend her to my family and friends.
Highly recommended! Very professional and highly trusted. True honor to work with.

Happy clients, R + C Garza
My Wife and I were first time home buyers. We were very uninformed about the process of buying homes and what we should look for. Carolyn was masterful at telling us what was good or bad about the homes we looked at. She was very available and responded in a timely matter every time we reached out. If you are a seasoned home buyer or a new home buyer, I recommend that you call Carolyn. She will find you the home that you really need!
I know it seems difficult to believe that anyone deserves 5 stars, but Carolyn is wonderful to work with. She is always available and responsive with helpful information. She knows the real estate business and the Austin areas extensively. We trust her so much that after working with her for a week, we returned to MI and depended on her to make decisions on properties based on her expertise and understanding of our tastes and needs. She called us as she walked through homes we were interested in, sent numerous pictures, and provided honest feedback. The result has been the purchase of a home we are extremely happy with. I strongly recommend Carolyn to anyone that is interested in a professional who puts the needs of her clients first and fulfills her obligations with both integrity and efficiency!
We emailed Carolyn as a Premier Agent for a rental listing we saw late on a Sunday afternoon just 2 weeks ago. She contacted us within 15 minutes and thus the search began for our rental home. Email notices began arriving quickly with available rentals in areas we discussed as possibilities. She is professional, honest, friendly and the most knowledgeable agent we have dealt with. We highly recommend her and look forward to working with her in the future.
Carolyn is the best realtor we've ever worked with! She helped us sell our house quickly and for the price that we wanted. She helped us find a new home that we love. She really knows the Austin area well, and showed us lots of properties in the area we wanted to live. She assisted us with our VA loan process and made sure we closed on time. Carolyn is a very honest and knowledgeable realtor. She's also a really nice person!
When moving back to Austin, we needed to find a home for rent quickly. Carolyn found us a great home that we lived in for 3 years. Then, when it came time to buy, she continued to work with us and in our behalf. She found a home for us and made the stressful process of buying, virtually pain free! I not only would recommend her...but I have recommended her. Feedback has been nothing but positive from friends and colleagues. She has given us excellent advise on improving our home and continues to be an invaluable resource!
Carolyn is the best realtor that I have ever dealt with!!! She is a top notch realtor, but she always makes you feel like you are her only client. She is unbelievably responsive, extremely knowledgeable, and always goes the EXTRA mile. She helped my wife and I buy a foreclosure earlier this year. We could not be happier with the house and the OUTSTANDING job that she did in negotiating a great deal. Carolynalways knew what needed to be done and made it happen.
I've bought three and sold two homes through Carolyn and Rob and they have always taken great care of me. They were tireless through the whoe process of searching, finding just the right home, and getting the daunting approval process completed. They made the whole process easy and worked with me to ensure all my VA paperwork just right. I'm so happy with my home!
We were first assigned Carolyn Abbott through a company relocation program back in 2001 and since then we've used her to sell and buy houses as recently as June 2011. The first time she sold a house for us her detailed staging tips made our house look like a model home. The house sold the second day it was listed to the second people who walked through. We used her to find our next home and her instincts for what kind of house and neighborhood we would be happy with was totally on the mark. The second time she sold a house for us in June 2011 we were skeptical that we would be able to sell at all with the market being what it is, but the price we got for the house was fair and it sold in about a month. We would absolutely recommend Carolyn to anyone who is looking for a good real estate agent.
I have purchased 2 investment properties with the help of Carolyn. I met her once in Austin and she took me around to look at a bunch of properties which all matched my initial definition and constraints. I found her to be very honest, experienced, helpful, thorough and above all else, trustworthy. I even purchased my second property completely based on her recommendation, without even physically seeing it. I would recommend Carolyn without any reservations to owner occupants or to real estate investors.
Carolyn has been one of the best Realtors we've ever worked with. My wife and I live in California so it's especially important to have an expert on the ground in Austin and Carolyn is certainly that and more. We flew out for one day only, and in that time Carolyn took us literally all over Austin and the surrounding areas. She showed us each area and described its history and where it was heading in real estate. We were able to make a very informed decision and have been completely happy with our purchases. We've bought two houses with Carolyn and they've both been doing very well. (We also have both houses with her husband Rob who is the property manager, and Rob is also a godsend.) We were first referred to Carolyn (and Rob) by long time good friends of ours who had bought properties from Carolyn a few years prior. They in turn, had been referred by friends who had bought properties with Carolyn years prior. My wife and I bought our properties approximately 6 years ago. We in turn referred Carolyn to good friends, and they also bought a couple of houses. That right there is 4 generations of referrals and great property buying with Carolyn (and managing by Rob) spanning well over the last 10 years. We couldn't be happier. Results speak for themselves. 4 generations of referrals - multiple houses purchases each - great buying experience with super knowledgeable realtor - (safe and secure manager taking care of our assets -Rob) Being long distance owners, we couldn't have asked for more. We sleep well at night knowing we bought good properties in the types of areas we targeted, at the price we wanted, that have consistently appreciated as we expected. Thank you Carolyn! (and Rob!)
My husband and I have bought 5 homes in 5 different cities in 14 years, and we are currently shopping for our 6th house in yet, another new city. Carolyn was our agent for our 5th house in Round Rock, TX and we wish that she could help us with our California purchase! Other realtors have been ok, but they have failed in comparison to Carolyn! She always answers her phone, returns messages, dots every “I” and crosses every “T”. Her level of service surpasses that of our other realtors by a landslide!Carolyn and her husband Rob now manage our rental property in Texas and they have handled that with their usual care, professionalism, & excellent level of service. In summary, I can't say enough good about them!
Carolyn helped us find and buy a house in the Austin area. Friends recommended her to us. Working with Carolyn, we felt that we have a trusted advisor that has the knowledge and resources to help us make the right decisions and has our interests as her top priority. This feeling was based on facts; on few occasions she researched and found info that killed potential deals but protected our interests (including one case where it happened after we put an offer on a house). Carolyn is fun to work with. She very quickly understood what we are looking for and zoomed the search on qualified houses. We know we will work with her on our next purchase and would strongly recommend her to others.
Carolyn is AWESOME! She showed us a lot of homes in several different areas to help us choose a location that was right for us. She not only showed us homes, but provided a great deal of information regarding the areas and schools. We looked over an extended period of time and Carolyn always kept a look out for new homes that we might be interested in. Not only did she help us find and purchase a home here, but also helped answer questions we had dealing with the sale of our home in another state. She was always available for any questions we had. I could list example after example of the ways Carolyn helped us. She went above and beyond what any other realtor we have had has done. if you want an AWESOME realtor, and an equally incredible person, choose Carolyn Abbott!!
My husband and I were referred to Carolyn this past year when we were looking to purchaes our first home. We had to find our house and tie up all loose ends in roughly one month, as we were in a time crunch. Carolyn was more than we ever expected of an agent. She worked to help us find what was right for us, regardless of price. She didn't steer us into a more expensive property or an area we didn't like. She was willing to show us whatever we wanted to see and spent so much time with my family. She is diligent, masterful in what she does, and dedicated to working passionately for her clients. After working her magic, we found the perfect home for our family and she answered every question along the way. She was present throughout the entire process. She will make herself available to her clients long after the papers are signed. Carolyn is more than an excellent agent, she is a person anyone would like to know. She is warm, friendly, and giving. She is the kind of agent that buyers can trust and rely on. Use her for your agent and thank me later.
HOW MANY REALTOR'S WOULD STAGE YOUR HOME
FOR YOU? CAROLYN DID FOR ME! SHE HAD EXPERT ADVICE AND WHAT MAKES A HOME SALE.
SHE KNEW WHAT CLIENTS WOULD BE LOOKING FOR IN THE PRICE RANGE MY HOME WAS SET.
SHE WANTS SATISFACTION ON BOTH SIDES OF THE TABLE. I HAVE USED HER WITH SEVERAL
REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS IN THIS RECESSION AND SHE'S ALWAYS PROVEN TRUSTWORTHY
AND DEPENDABLE TO EVERYONE INVOLVED. SHE'S IN FOR THE LONG HAUL AND WAS
SUCCESSFUL IN SELLING MY PROPERTIES TO MY SATISFACTION. I WAS VERY FORTUNATE TO
HAVE MET HER FROM MY NEIGHBORS WHO ALSO HAD GREAT SUCCESS ON THEIR SELL.
CAROLYN IS TIRELESS AND GETS RESULTS.
Rob and Carolyn, Just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying our new home and thank you for the part you played in making it happen. From returning phone calls, to answer all my questions, we couldn't have asked for better service. You made what can be a very scary and stressful time in our life's pleasant and enjoyable due to your expertise and commitment. I would highly recommend you (and I do every time a get the chance) to anyone buying or selling a home. Thanks again, Kevin and Gina Dill
I've known Rob and
Carolyn for several years, starting with their assistance with purchase of an
investment property in Austin to subsequent property management service, and I
have come to totally trust their local knowledge and respect their professional
advice. They are easy to work with, bring the highest level of professionalism,
very attentive to your needs, and are really nice people. And did I mention
that I'm in CA? I'm able to sleep at night knowing that they're taking care of
my property. I highly recommend Rob and Carolyn.

Thanks for everything, I appreciate all your support &
understanding. I will keep you in mind if and when I need a real estate
agent for when I move, I will also send you referrals. It feels great to work with someone that is professional and has integrity. Very hard to find these days!

"Rob Abbott is a great property manager, he is reliable, honest
and someone both the tenant and the property owner can trust. I would
highly recommend Rob Abbott as a property manager."
E. Friedman, Homeowner & Investor
Thanks again for all your professionalism & extra effort you put into
this. You don' know how much I/we appreciate you rising to the
occasion. Actually you probably do know which is why you rose to the
task at hand which is, taking care of clients as Realtor partners.
After all it take 2 of us to make things happen.
Occasionally I have clients that need management companies. I will
suggest you as an option not only to my clients but also to our team
(if you'd like). Your systems are obviously in place as is your care
