A full-time real estate professional since 1992, Caren’s philosophy is simple: Do The Best Job Possible. Trustworthy, honest, and committed, she strives to deliver results that exceed expectations. For her work in 2016, Caren was presented the International Sterling Society award from Coldwell Banker Realty.

Caren has been awarded several designations, aiding buyers, sellers, investors, and relocation clients alike. Chief among these are her Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Graduate Realtor’s Institute (GRI), Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource (SFR), Certified HAFA Specialist, and Certified Negotiation Expert (CNS) certifications.                                                                               

Here are some of the things she can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Caren was highly recommended to me by some good friends who had sold houses with her help, so I was glad to call her when I was ready to start the process of selling my house. She was very knowledgeable from the first day we met last July, and guided me along the way, even though there were a couple delays I hadn't expected (I needed a small surgery in the fall, and our kitchen developed a mold problem in the winter, which worked out for the best, since we had new cabinets and floor installed). So the whole process was about a year, and I was so glad to rely on her for all the professional advice she gave about pricing, accepting which offers, negotiating with the buyer, etc. She answered all our questions, and was an encouragement all the way, with my house selling for higher than listed!"

"WOW! Do not hesitate to contact Caren. You will be glad you did. She knows her field inside and out, works above and beyond what is required of her to protect your interests, is skilled when working with other realtors and individuals (seriously, she could be a diplomat), is always responsive even when she's away on vacation, and is a genuinely nice person on top of it all. I've purchased and sold 4 homes and she is THE best real estate agent I have ever worked with. I cannot recommend her enough. My only problem? How do I ever sufficiently thank her for all her care and expertise?"

"Luck doesn’t come my way that often, but luck surely did when I found real estate agent/broker, Caren Connolly. The task of finding a skilled associate to collaborate with, on time sensitive real estate endeavors, is difficult these days; to find an honest, intelligent, skilled associate, with a remarkable work ethic; is almost impossible. Caren Connolly is that person. Caren met and exceeded my expectations on every step necessary to complete the sale of my property. Caren brings insight into the current real estate market and an extraordinarily helpful knowledge of area craftsmen and their skills; which helps to present real estate property at its best. She listened to me, she analyzed, and then gave me the vital feedback needed to make the crucial decisions I encountered when selling my real estate. If you are looking for an individual to join forces with on your real estate venture, if you are looking for an honest, skilled agent with great work ethic; I highly recommend her!"

  -Kari H., Client

"In the past, we missed out on the purchase of the home of our choice due to the inexperience and lack of knowledge on the part of our realtor. When we decided to list our home for sale, we wanted an agent that was tops in the field and possessed the CRS designation. If you don't know the importance of that designation, Google it to see the qualifications required to receive it. Karen is knowledgeable in all aspects, including legal aspects. She is a go-getter, detail-oriented, and very responsive to all phone calls, text messages, questions, and concerns. We were involved in a very difficult escrow. Caren and her assistant navigated through the whole process with good relationship skills between other agents. While Caren is a go-getter, she is not high pressure and is very personable. During difficult times, she has the ability with her calm demeanor to settle nerves! With Karen, we had confidence in her and her ability and knowledge, and that really helped us."
