Carolyn A. Smith has been a real estate agent on the North Shore for many years. Early in her career she discovered she possessed a knack for matching people to homes, as well as for successfully marketing even the most unique properties. Carolyn understands the emotions that accompany selling a home and the nervousness of purchasing one. However, her in-depth knowledge of communities, her superior customer service, and her keen negotiating skills have put thousands of buyers and sellers at ease.
