Carol showed me some houses in the area. While my family eventually decided that it was not time to buy a home. We will definitely be calling her again once we decide it is time to buy, knowing we will get the best possible representation.

Although I had great success listing with other agents in the past, I took a chance on listing my house with Carol because of her 5 star rating and her connection with Long Island and New Jersey. It turned out to be the wrong decision for me, Communication was fair at best and she seemed to portray an attitude when I asked a question. I should have listed with the agents I knew.

Home buying is a stressful experience, so we considered ourselves very fortunate to have Carol's knowledge and expertise throughout the process. Even when we choose to take a year off from our search, Carol was able to jump right back in when we finally found our house and provide the valuable guidance we had come to rely on. We highly recommend her.

Ms. Olsen was a pleasure to deal with. She was honest in her assessments, her projections proved to be right on, she made herself assessible for issues and questions at all times. We had our house on the market two previous times and we had little responses from prospects and no results. Ms. Olsen provided us with research, data for us to understand the market in the area and educated us in the process. She is a great lady, a professional in every sense and made our selling our home effortless and with minimal stress. Use her as your agent, you won't be sorry! Less ... More

Carol did a great job of quickly selling a property that had been previously for over a year with another agent. The entire transaction was done via email for my convenience, as I lived in another state at the time of the listing and sale. She is a pleasure to work with and I would absolutely recommend her and use her for any future real estate needs I might have.

While interviewing potential realtors Carol really stood out from the rest. We expected that selling our home in the winter would be a tall order. Additionally, we knew our home needed to be marketed to buyers outside the area. Carol explained why the winter was a good time to sell. Days after the interview in late November she had a showing scheduled. This showing led to the sale of our home in February! We are very happy with our experience with Carol and would recommend her to other buyers and sellers. Less ... More

Carol was a great pleasure to work with on the purchase of our house. She was extremely knowledgeable of the area and was willing to answer any questions we had. She made the process such a pleasant one and worked diligently to keep it all moving forward. We will certainly keep her in mind if we have any further needs for her services or if we know of anyone who can use her expertise in real estate.

Helped me buy home
We had never met her before, but she carefully listened to every word we said about what we wanted. She showed us pictures, inside and out, of a lot of homes, one of which she kept bringing up although for some reason it did not set right with me. I refused to look at it. Over the next few weeks she took us through some beautiful homes, but none seemed to be the one. Then, one day while we were out with her, looking at property, she said I know there is one you are not interested in, but I am taking you there. She took us through it.....................we bought it!............... Enough said...............Carol is an AWESOME sales person. Less ... More

Our experience with Carol Olsen was outstanding. Carol helped us every step of the way in selling our property and buying a new one. We benefited from Carol's expertise in real estate and relied heavily on her professional recommendations and knowledge. Not to mention, Carol sold our house for top dollar in a very difficult market. If you're in the market to buy, sell or both I would decidedly endorse Carol as your agent.

Carol did an excellent job. She showed us the house a few times. She helped us through the buying process and was just wonderful in keeping in contact with us. She made sure we were getting through the process and that we understood and had all the information that was needed. Would definitely use her in the future and I would refer her to anyone needing a realtor.

We had our home listed with other agents and during the sumer of 2010 the agent we had NEVER brought one person to our home. We switched the next summer to CAROL OLSEN and we had more people come and look at our home than ever before. We did find the perfect buyer through Carol. Of course, in this market, we didn't get the price that we would have liked but sold our home. The people who bought it are thrilled with their new home. I am so happy to pass it on to someone who will love the home, the flower beds, the hummingbirds, the stream and the beautiful mountain views. Thank you, Carol, for making this process of selling our home a bit less painless. Carol was the best agent I had and we had 3 agents. Carol surpassed all other agents. Less ... More

It was a struggle for us to find a home, it took 3 years. Due to budgetary limitations and what our expectations were Carol really listened to us and would try to find houses that fit both, but we never felt pressured. If it wasn't rght for us, she would find us another one to look at. Carol afforded us the respect and guidance we needed every step of the way. I never felt intimidated by Carol as so many agents in the past had made me feel. I knew also if I asked her questions she would give an honest answer without sugar coating it and if she didn't know the answers she would find out and let me know as soon as she could. I never had to keep bothering her to get the answer or made to feel that we weren't as important as all of her other clients That means alot! Thanks SO MUCH Carol for your patience and perseverance. I will recommend Carol to anyone I know who is buying/selling a house. Less ... More

I had met Carol online & then spoken with her on the phone. She had helped me with the sale of my property. She's very pleasant, thorough, knowledgeable and very resourceful. I am from out of town so she had arranged everything that was needed to complete our transaction while keeping me informed with weekly phone conversations. I would absolutely recommend Carol Olsen as a realtor.

We were located 6 hours from upstate New York, and we had Carol handle looking into homes for us , and she did an amazing job! She kept us inform of available homes and set up appointments so we could view them.Why we liked having her as our realtor, she was always available to contact. It's hard to find an good realtor where their job is to sell real estate, but Carol Olsen makes you feel like you are family. Highly recommend her for all your real estate purchases.

The past few years the market has change considerably for selling a home. You need someone that is proficient in all areas of the reality system to sell your home. Carol Olsen is the person that is able to accomplish a sale in the present day market. Listen to her advice on listing prices and other important factors about the current market that could close a sale on your home, as she did for us. We highly recommend Carol Olsen to handle the sale of your home. Gary Allen

Carol is the best! She is a pro in her field and an expert in social media. I knew the moment I interviewed her that she would sell our home. Her honesty was refreshing and I truly trusted her judgment. She was on top of everything especially giving us feedback after each showing. She knows her business and her advice was spot on. Aside from being a professional in every way, she is also a delightful and upbeat person. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a top real estate agent. Kathleen Keefe Less ... More

It is hard to sell a house in the market right now. Carol was always patient and directed us to the end....selling our house. She is readily accessible and willing to do what you need to market your house. A real contender in the Otego/Otsego county market. I would recommend her as a person of patience, and the willpower to deal with anxious sellers. Thanks to Carol and her marketing skills (not to forget St. Joseph) we sold in our six month plan. Thanks Carol.....Jeanne

Carol worked very hard to move our properties in a poor market. She always kept us informed of the showings and the responses for we were not living in the area. The only reason we responded average for local knowledge is we choose an agent from a town that was not the same as the property for sale, since we had heard encouraging comments on her abilities. She was aware of what was going on with the main businesses in the village to help with selling trends. Carol always spent time to answer all of our questions with lots of patience. She actually sold two homes for us. Bill and Deb Barnes Less ... More
