Home is where one starts from....T.S. Eliot
Highly energized, enthusiastic, and filled with unique gifts! My educational qualifications include a degree in Fashion merchandising, a Real Estate license, and a Masters of Theology.
Recognizing my diverse life experiences…i.e. selling shoes, clothing, houses, or God…I am committed to excellence. Engaging in this "up trending" market…what could be more uplifting than selling a home?
As a teenager, I assisted my grandparent’s in their small town shoe store, and discovered the joy of people. While selling clothing, in the big city, I was introduced to big business. From old fashioned cash registers to modern day computers, I embrace technology, without losing the personal touch.
I am dependable and results-oriented! I am conscientious, meticulous and organized! I have always created a professional partnership and ensured a team atmosphere. Retail, residential, or religion…my life has continued to offer a new dimension!
Thank you for your time and interest. I look forward to working with you.

"What a great experience I had working with Carol McGarvey! My family inherited my uncle's house upon his passing. I currently live in Indiana and was in charge of taking care of my uncle's will. Since I was out of state, I needed a great agent to work with more than ever. Carol fit the bill and then some! Carol was clear and upfront about her methodology for pricing the house and all the costs involved in the sale. She took great representative pictures of the house. She kept in touch with me and kept me abreast of everything going on which can be hard to do since I was located in another state. She was great at educating me throughout the process and letting me choose what I wanted to do. She gave great advice and teaching on the different kinds of loans that buyers may have, which ones benefit the buyer and seller and how, etc. She was a great intermediary between us and the buyers' and potential buyers' agents.
She fought for what was best for us, including when the buyers tried pulling a fast one at the end wanting us to pay for the extra visit their lender wanted for the appraisal. The buyers were trying to say that they wouldn't go through with the sale because of the appraiser's mixup. She calmly debated them and gave suggestions to them on how to rectify their situation appropriately. I would hire Carol again in the future if I ever had a house to sell in her area. Kind Regards, Kendra G.
"Carol, I just want to say THANK YOU again for your hard work. Knowing just over a month ago a piece of property we really liked had a restriction on it, is now ours. Who would have thought we would get through all these hoops. :) There were deer in the back yard last night and when you sit in the living room you can look up and see the moon and stars. It was beautiful! Thank you so much, you are awesome and you are very caring and you hold the best interest for your clients to heart. Unlike others who try to make a sweet deal for themselves. Thank you, thank you, thank you…..." Thank you, Julie G.
"Carol, Thanks for sending along the documentation for the generator engine. It'll get filed. Things going OK here at the new house and settling in. Plenty to do. It's wonderful out here and the house is awesome. Definitely keeping your card! Hope 2013 is a great year for you." Regards, Christopher P.
"Carol, Wow! The other day I got your voice mail and it mentioned something about your website. So, tonight as I was waiting to hear how the 'house hunting' went, I looked up the site and found ya! Now I know why you always look so nice! It's also more clear why you are so patient with me. Your life experiences and your faith have prepared you well to help and work with folks like us! (Something you said one day led Dan to think you were also a school teacher.) Anyways - I'm truly impressed with your credentials! Working with you actually has made me feel 'less stressed and more blessed'! Thank you for that, Carol, and also for all your time and effort." -Janet B.
