Carlton Realty was recommended to me from an online forum about Raleigh. I was looking for someone who could help my husband and I find a home in the area he loved, at a price I loved. Things moved very quickly, because when the housing market is hot, you have to move fast! Having Carlton Realty guiding us through the process helped put us at ease and kept us on track with our move date. Kate was great at getting us into each new listing quickly to give us the best chance, and it paid off in the form of a beautiful home we expect to enjoy for years to come. I would recommend for anyone looking to buy in the Raleigh area.

We have used Kate Carlton twice now. First for our very first home purchase and second, seven years later for both a home sale and purchase. We love her and would never use anyone else. She is very responsive and communicative throughout the whole process and everyone at her office makes the process as easy as possible. If you work well with a low-pressure, laid back personality then Kate is your woman! She will never make you feel uncomfortable or badger you. She’s truly listens and takes your thoughts and opinions to heart. She takes charge and will help you make your house as beautiful and marketable as possible. We got amazing feedback from our house showings and ended up getting well over asking price. We are grateful to her for taking most of the stress out of the process. Highly recommend!

This was our second time working with Kate and I truly cannot recommend her enough. Not only did she negotiate the most incredible deal (ever??), she was supportive and offers the best guidance. Homebuying can be a very emotional experience and Kate handles it with ease. Kate is a true professional and it is no wonder she is as successful as she is.

We went through 2 other realtors before going with Kate. She was extremely patient with us and the tons of questions we had due to moving from out of state. All our texts and calls were answered in a timely manner and at very least with a “I’ll find out” to ease our minds rather than leave us hanging. We ended up purchasing a home that she did a video showing for and couldn’t be more happy. If there is any doubt about who to choose in NC when you’re looking to purchase I hope this review gets to you. Kate is the ABSOLUTE BEST!!!

Highly recommend!! Kate is outstanding. She was super helpful throughout the entire buying experience, always quick to respond, and going the extra mile for her clients. Buying my first home - I had no clue where to begin. Kate walked me through everything from start to finish. She listened to what I was looking for and found the perfect home. She’s passionate, knowledgeable, and committed to her clients. If you’re buying or selling a home, make your life easier and contact Kate! I can’t thank her enough for everything. Even after the sale, she still goes out of her way to make sure I have everything I need in my new home.

I moved out of the area prior to listing, so I relied heavily on Kate during the sale of my home. She never missed a beat! She communicated with me frequently so I never felt like I had to ask questions. She is great with social media marketing and heavily marketed my open houses and the home in general. She had it under contract, with multiple people interested, in just 1 week! I would never use another agent in the area.

Kate is very professional and helped us through a difficult property sale while simultaneously assisting us in purchasing a new home. We got top dollar for our sale (multiple offers came within the first 24 hours of our open house with an offer accepted within 48 hours) and beat out multiple offers on our purchase without going above our budget or fair market value of the property.
