Hear from my Clients

I just wanted to thank both you and Mark Strickland for taking such good care of me through the process of selling my dad's home. You were great to work with, and I've really enjoyed getting to know you. Many thanks!


I want to thank you for all of your time and effort in helping get us into our new home! As first time home buyers it can be incredibly daunting, but with you guiding us we felt truly supported. Thanks to you, we are now the proud owners of the perfect home in a beautiful neighborhood. You really took us through the process step by step and made sure we were comfortable and understood everything. It was amazing to see everything come together, and we are so very thankful for your guidance, dedication and support. We couldn't have done this without you guys!

I found Carol and Mark to be totally professional, doing what they said they would it. Carol assisted in advice on how to best stage the house. We had many showings and multiple offers, with a firm contract in 48 hours. Their marketing and brochure were outstanding. Recently I told a friend that I could not find one thing to change in the whole transaction.

Hands-on, attentive, and supportive in a very difficult market for buyers - Mark and Carol made purchasing our new home a great experience. They joined us on many last-minute house showings, gave expert advice during the highly competitive bidding process, and supported our family after the inspection with contractor recommendations. Thanks to their efforts, we got our dream house.

For those of you asking or in search of a realtor, I give Carol Strickland the HIGHEST recommendation for sell or buy. Promise! Personal experience through a few decades with selling/buying my homes with her help. Always on point with success for all involved. We’ll see served, Carol Strickland!!


We cannot say enough good things about our experience working with Carol. Because we were relocating from another city, we relied on Carol’s deep knowledge of the Austin area to help us find the right home. We also relied on Carol’s ability to help us feel connected to the Austin area through her use of technology - she took us on FaceTime tours of a few homes we liked! Not only was she easy to get in touch with, but she was also quick to reply to our many questions about neighborhoods and homes. Carol was proactive with sharing listings she thought would be of interest to us to make sure we didn’t miss out on potential homes. There are a lot of things we looked for in a realtor and we found them all in Carol - not only did we find the perfect house for our family, but we also made a new friend!

I can not say enough good things about Carol! I have had the pleasure of working with Carol in the sale and purchase of two homes in Austin and can not imagine going through another without her help. Carol goes WAY beyond listing and collecting a commission. She is in your corner from day 1 and represents your best interest, is highly knowledgeable, and has such a vast network that she can leverage in even the most unique selling or buying circumstance. She just gets it and gets it done. On the Selling side, we had our first house on the market with another agent for many months during a downturn and a "buyers" market. We relisted with Carol and the house sold in less than a month, and even better than the selling price we initially listed. She knew how and where to market to the right buyer and even helped stage it for showings that made it much more enticing than ever before. In the second home sale, I had life changes that made the sale very emotional and scary. Carol was able to help me maneuver through the emotions and successfully focus on the task at hand, getting things in order ahead to list with a quick turnaround in getting it on the market. This was no easy task as I was in the home, with kids for over 16 years. Carol went above and beyond with her ability to think outside of the box and market it through not only traditional but many non-traditional channels that resulted in the house selling in 3 days of being on the market AND at asking price with minimal negotiations. Carol's knowledge, solid work ethic, and positive, energetic energy made this life transition so much easier and pain-free. On the Buying side, Carol brings a wealth of knowledge of neighborhoods, schools, community programs, etc. across the Austin metroplex. She listens to what you want and is your strongest advocate. She does her homework on any updates in a given area you express interest and goes above and beyond to find out things that you or your family might have a special need or interest. Carol was able to accommodate my hectic work/family life schedule and keep me informed every step of the way. She has a keen sense of finding what you want (or think you want) and offering other ideas that you may not have thought of and could benefit your search for the right home for your taste, interest, needs, AND offers good resale value. Additionally, she continues to provide a useful network for things such as home improvement vendors, neighborhood community contacts, among other neighborhood interests. I continue to recommend Carol to clients I have that are moving within or to Austin, several of which have successfully bought homes with her help. Her finesse in knowing the emotional and business side of buying and selling a home is second to none and always results in your ultimate success. I can't think of anyone else in the world to represent me in a home sale or purchase or recommend to others for the same. HIRE HER, you won't regret it!

I have had the pleasure of working with Carol Strickland multiple times, buying and listing homes for sale. She is and always has been such a professional. Carol is truly dedicated to her craft, continuing to stay ahead of the industry, understand the market conditions, and provide the best advice and direction for her customers. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a home to buy or sell.

Carol was recommended to me by mutual friends and she truly made my journey to homeownership perfectly easy in every way. Let's be clear: Carol knows the highly aggressive Austin real estate market. Before we even began to discuss what I wanted in a new home, she recommended that I get my ducks in a row and go through the pre-qualification process so that when I found my dream home, I would be competitive in a multiple offer scenario. She recommended that I take a look at the available homes via the web site so I had the time personally to review what was out there. She spent as much time with me as I needed to visit homes and was brutally honest about everything from the house foundation to the neighborhood vibe. When Carol and I walked into my dream home, I knew immediately that it was "the one" and sure enough--I was one of six buyers interested in the property. Carol wasted no time in getting my offer submitted that day with all of her suggestions to make my offer the best it could be and it was accepted. I've just celebrated three years in my forever home and thank Carol so much for the important role she played in getting me here. If you want the best, call Carol.

We relocated to Austin in 2016, our 5th relocation in 16 years. We are no strangers to agents and brokers, good and bad. What we didn't realize is that there is a great one out there named Carol Strickland. Carol was referred to us by a mutual friend. She immediately went to work, drawing on years of experience and expertise, in finding my family an area in Austin that fit us. We had a very short window and Carol paid close attention to our needs and listened to what was important to me and my wife. In short, our 5th move was our best move and it was all because of Carol.

We have had the true pleasure of working with Carol for over 13 years. We first began working with her to find our home as we relocated to Austin. She inherently understood the needs of our family. Through the years, Carol has helped us find investment properties. Each time, diligently finding properties that fit our investment needs. Carol is more than our agent, I am honored to call her our family friend.
