Carol's welcoming approach to the home purchase process is ideal for first time home buyers. We chose Carol based on a consistent selling/buying record for homes within our price range. After the initial meeting, we felt comfortable in choosing her for the process based on her calm, honest demeanor and quick response to questions that arose on any given day. By the closing date, Carol had provided frequent assistance and useful knowledge to make the home purchase seem like a simple process. Highly recommended.

Carol is very knowledgeable and competent in the Franklin county market. She sold our land amidst incredible problems and setbacks external to the sale. I had no transportation so Garth took me to closing (30 mile trip) and brought a bag of dog food for my pets. They are still sorting out the situation I left there after moving. I made my money in real estate and have never worked with a realtor as kind and helpful as Carol -- and her realtor husband Garth.

Carol was wonderful to work with. She was quick to act when we found our home and wanted to put in a bid. Our home is a renovation loan and took quite sometime to close with several extensions needed. Carol stayed on top of everything, keeping us all on track. I cannot express how grateful we are to her for always answering our questions no matter what, explaining things to us (how the process works), and always being patient and kind. What a wonderful experience we had buying our first home! We are so blessed to have met Carol and worked with her during this process!

Carol is a pleasure to talk to and work with. She listens to what you really want and need, and helped me over the course of several months to make sure I was looking at, and ultimately purchasing, the exact property that fit my needs the best. She does not hesitate to do research and gather information, answer any questions you have, and she was always available even when I thought she wouldn't possibly be working. Carol is quick to respond, REALLY listens, makes you feel that she is on your side as a partner, and she makes you feel that your needs and decisions are the most important thing to her.

Carol made selling our house a breeze. We sold at above what I thought we could in 3 days. She did all the paperwork and even helped me close from another state. She will go the extra mile for you.

I recently moved to Frankfort from Idaho. I received Carol's name and number from a realtor in Idaho. He was looking for someone in the area with excellent credentials and experience. I met Carol once and then the rest of our time was handled over email and phone until we met again on closing day when I arrived in Frankfort. She was completely professional and helpful as we ran into a couple snags along the way. She handled everything with professionalism and totally had my interest in heart during the transactions. I would and do recommend Carol if your are looking to buy or sell a home. By the way, I love my
new home and the city of Frankfort! Thank you Carol!

Carol has been the most helpful, most patient realtor we could have had the pleasure of working with. She listened to what we wanted, and showed us every house in which we were interested. Once we found the house we wanted, she helped us from making the offer through the inspection process and all the way through closing. She was available throughout the process to answer all our questions. Carol was everything we wanted in a realtor. We'd highly recommend her.

Carl did an outstanding job helping my wife and I find a home. Every time we said no see would come back with another to view. All I can add is fantastic.

We highly recommend Carol Smith for any real estate representation. She is very efficient; detail oriented and did not talk but left us to walk through property uninterrupted. When we asked a question, she answered. If she doesn’t know, she’ll do her research and quickly respond by email, text, or phone call. She is very professional in handling any problem that arises and was most willing to meet contractors and service people when we were not available. We just bought a home long distance with multiple seller issues, contingencies, and closing documents. Carol stayed on top of everything; never dropped the ball and was never rattled. We are so pleased to have engaged her services in relocating to central Kentucky.

Thank you Carol Smith.

I was in the market to purchase a home and it was a pleasure working with Carol. She was very prompt in responding to me, either instantly or within minutes. She was readily available to schedule viewings of houses and accommodated my schedule. Carol was very knowledgeable about the buying process and gave me tips and advice along the way. She's very professional and personable as well. I wouldn't hesitate to use her again and to recommend her to others!

Carol was amazing. She was very patient, worked around my crazy schedule and was very helpful but did not push. I truly believe she was surprised when I finally found my home. I appreciate all of her assistance not only helping me find my home but with the closing process as well. I highly recommend her!
