Personal Profile

Being a Lowcountry local for over thirty-two years, Carla has witnessed the tremendous change and growth that's transformed the area into one of the East Coast's most sought-after destinations. Carla's vast knowledge of the area and her creative, enthusiastic and caring nature is perfect for matching each client's desires as well as skillfully featuring a home's unique presence and character. Born and raised in the farmlands of Ohio and graduated with honors from the University of Akron, she escaped the long winters and began a career in the insurance industry when she first came to Hilton Head Island. She later worked extensively in the medical field and went on to excel in pathology laboratory sales covering South Carolina. An active volunteer history with the American Heart Association, led Carla to accepting the position of Development Director. She has grown the local chapter the past five years with her passion for the mission and has achieved national benchmarks for fundraising. During her son's Bluffton High School JROTC participation, she served as a Booster Club officer and helped with the numerous activities in the community. Before traveling in sales, she sang with the Praise Team at the Church of the Cross and hopes to one day have time to pursue music again as a hobby. You might have heard her voice on the radio in Ohio singing jingles in the eighties. Carla prides herself in her passion and heartfelt drive to serve her clients' best interest. Her extensive contacts and her local residency leverage her enthusiasm and energy, enhancing her client dedication and insuring satisfied client experiences. "I love the Lowcountry lifestyle and it would be a pleasure and an honor to work for you."

    Carla was amazing and always went above and beyond to meet our expectations and finding a house. She always made sure to be straightforward with us about any things that may stand out that we weren't OK with. And even when Carla was out of town she made sure that we were still well taken care of. I just want to thank Carla for helping us find our forever home that we can now begin to be our family of three. If we ever need to buy property again anywhere Carla will be our go to person. We also have already recommend her to others that are looking. Thank you so much Carla for all your hard work and dedication!

  • Buyer review
    Carla was amazing from the beginning to the end of the home search and purchase process (and is still providing support with some lingering issues). She stayed on top of every detail and kept me informed often, and as necessary, even though she may not have had a final response or explanation from other parties. She is the individual one can count on, who will be there to provide the expertise and guidance during the purchase (or sale) of what may be the most expensive investment one can make in one's lifetime. She has all the attributes one would love to find in a realtor, having the "it" factor few have. Her deep knowledge of the Low Country, her highly-honed negotiation skills and her drive to achieve the goal on my behalf are what makes her an authentic real estate professional. Her wonderful personality and "people" skills are the icing on the cake. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate Carla a 20!!!! No matter how busy she was, she made the time and went above and beyond to support me. Thank you Carla!!!
  • Seller review
    Carla was attentive to my needs. She understood the time I needed to prepare the house to place on market. She offered assistance to help with preparation of the home and she did an optimal job in pricing and listing the home. She was cofident during the sale process and she handled everything expertly before, during and through the final closing. I enjoyed working with her and she made the process simple. All went flawlessly as Carla mediated all interactions with the buyer's sales agent and attorneys. She was an outstanding seller representative.
