Last year we moved from Germany to the Charlotte/Waxhaw are and Cara was our Realtor Agent. She helped us from overseas via phone calls and emails to find a rental home in the school district we wanted to be. She did such an excellent job and was amazing throughout the whole process. We couldn't have done it without her.
We knew that we only would rent for 1 year and than buy a house in the same school district.
When it was time to start looking for a house to buy, it was clear to only go with Cara as our Realtor Agent again.
She always listens to what your wishes and needs are and makes sure she will find the perfect home for you. Cara was always right on when a new listing came up. Cara is very experienced, has a lot of knowledge and guided us through the entire home buying process with an ease. She knows her business and is also a wonderful person with the heart in the right spot. Cara was always helpful and got back to us in a short time.
We couldn't be happier with our experience working with her. She also referred us to our mortgage lender. Cara knows also a lot about the area.
We always would highly recommend Cara to anyone who is looking for a house you want to call home. She definitely found the perfect home for us!!!

Cara is amazing to work with. She look for houses for us daily and would call with the latest and greatest ones and advised us what would work best for our family. I was so impressed with her and her knowledge of the ever changing housing market and how she guided us along the path to just the right house for us.

We moved to the Charlotte NC area in November 2018. We were assigned with Cara through our relocation company and how lucky we were to get her! Cara was very proficient in assessing our want and needs. She knows Charlotte and the metro very well. She made suggestion on areas and neighborhoods that fit our style and personality. She was very instrumental in wrapping up everything up for a fast seamless three week closing, a major plus! With that we found a fantastic home in our new city and couldn’t be move happy with Cara Bailey. Cara is a go to realtor!

Homemaker / Head of Sales
We were relocating this summer from Germany to the Union County area and wanted to be in the Marvin Ridge school district. We are so thankful that we got a recommendation to go with Cara. She really is the best real estate broker you can ask for. Moving from a different country is already stressful enough, but working with Cara made finding a home and not only a house so much easier. She was a tremendous help for our family, she goes above and beyond to find the house for you and your needs. After letting her know what exactly we were looking for in a house, she was able to quickly narrow down the selection of homes and neighborhoods for us. Even when we were still back in Germany and had questions or concerns, she always got back to us in a very short time (email or phone calls) and took care of details in our absence during the transition. Cara spend a lot of her time helping us in any matter regarding our home search, school information and even with checking in on us during and after our move. We are very thankful for all her support. She truly is a wonderful, kind person, very knowledgeable not pushy at all and you always feel in very good and expertise hands with her. We couldn't have done it without her. We will definitely go with her again with our next move and highly recommend her.

We’ve sold two homes with Cara. She makes valid suggestions on what will and won’t sell a home. We thought on our last house we needed to do some improvements to get the price point we wanted out of our home, but she knew the market for our area and talked us out of doimg expensive upgrades. In fact, she didn’t want us to change anything! She recommended a selling price that was spot on and drove interest. As a result the house sold very quickly and above asking price. Cara was always available to discuss things, answer our questions and prompt with follow up. The entire selling process was smooth and easy. I tribute that to Cara’s work ethic, organization and open and honest personality. We would not hesitate to work with her again!

Looking for our "Forever Home"
After looking online for homes that met our criteria that would "make us move," we found a home that truly peaked our curiosity. My wife and I reached out to Cara and asked if we could set up a time to look at that house. The house was a wreck and needed a great deal of work. We decided that we wanted to submit and offer and Cara was such an amazing counselor and guide throughout the entire process. She is truly a subject matter expert and very well connected with all the people, agencies, and companies you'll need when you decide to buy or sell a home. She is quick on her feet and stays in constant contact throughout all the ups and downs each day brings. You'll want someone like Cara on your side, representing you and your interests, when you are ready to buy or sell. She helped us do both and we are so thankful we did!

Senior Account Manager

Cara helped us find a beautiful family home in the Weddington area when we were relocating from out of state . We have moved several times and Cara was hands down the best realtor we have ever worked with. I liked working with her so much that I recommended my sister use Cara when her family was purchasing their first home in Mecklenburg County. My sister, and her family also had nothing but rave reviews about their home buying experience.

Cara was familiar with the many Union & Mecklenburg County neighborhoods that we explored, always providing additional insight on local restaurants, shopping, or family friendly events. She quickly understood exactly what we were looking for after one day out together and was able to narrow down the selection of homes she showed us.

Cara was easy to work with, honest and professional throughout our home buying journey, and consistently went above and beyond our expectations. After closing on our home, she continues to maintain contact with us- sharing vendor recommendations (painters, plumbers, etc.) or just to check in.

My fiance and I were first time home buyers, so we were very nervous about starting the house hunt for the first time. We had no idea what we were doing, but Cara held our hand throughout the entire process and made it all seem very easy. She helped us find our dream home in Charlotte and we couldn't be happier with our experience working with her. She even referred us to our mortgage lender and has continued to be a helpful resource even after we've moved in. Cara clearly knows a lot about the area and helped steer us in the right direction. I would highly recommend Cara to anyone who is looking for a home in the Charlotte/Ballantyne area.

I rarely post online, but in this case I am glad to do so. Cara delivered exceptional service for my family during our recent corporate relocation. While we all know moving can be stressful, Cara really went the extra mile taking care of details in our absence during the transition. I not only recommend Cara, but absolutely plan on utilizing her expertise on our next move.

Cara was honestly the most efficient and patient realtor that we have ever worked with.
She was instrumental in helping find our current home. Cara spent plenty of time doing home searches, and reaching out to peers to see if anything would be coming to market that fit our pretty specific parameters.
If there was a home I wanted to see, she was very giving with her time and made that showing happen within 24 hours or less.
Cara always had our best interest in mind, and never once did I feel that she was pushy or trying to "close a deal", which I had experienced when I lived in Illinois & Oregon.
Cara guided us easily through home inspections, follow ups with the sellers, and closing. Her attention to detail was superb.
If we decide to move in the future, I would absolutely call Cara to be our listing agent.
Cara is a knowledgeable realtor who I would not hesitate to call for any realty needs.
