I am delighted to recommend Carol as both an agent to sell with and buy from. Integrity is a difficult trait to find in the real estate industry at times, but Carol has plenty of it! She is honest, communicates well and is able to establish a good rapport with her clients. I would highly recommend Carol.
We have now both bought and sold with Carol Jennings and both experiences were wonderful. Every agent in the area knows who Carol is and that is with good reason – her reputation precedes her. She negotiated a sale price on our home over and above our expectations. So pleased
Dear Carol, Regarding your representation and sale of our property at Steyne Road Saratoga 2251 Janice and I held you in the highest professional regard at all times with your excellent presentation, follow through screening of potential purchasers and without great expenditure the eventual sale at a price we accepted after spending an exceptional amount to at first advertise with another agent with no success. High Recommendation! Thank You Carol & Your Great Team.
Carol shows a dedication and commitment to the task at hand. She is a consummate professional and worked tirelessly to sell my property. Without the ‘pushy’ attitude commonly experienced in this industry, Carol found results through persistence and a genuine interest in me and my property. 5 star service!
Carol Jennings has a flair for bringing out the potential in a house, and I found all her suggestions relating to presentation not only helpful but spot on. She is also very committed to her work and tenacious in her ability to match a house to the right buyer, while negotiating the best deal possible for both the seller and the buyer.
I recommend Carol if you want an honest and committed person helping you sell your house.
”I would like to thank you for your unrelenting effort toward a successful sale of our property. You have been most active in your pursuit and in keeping us informed of progress throughout the process. This to us as vendors is very important, with honest feedback without embellishment. We are very pleased with the result and will have no hesitation in recommending Carol
We are SO happy we chose to sell our house with Carol Jennings. We interviewed three others and chose the best. She exceeded our expectations and we would strongly recommend her to anybody who is wishing to sell.
The best agent I have ever worked with. Great service.
We would like to thank Carol for her professional and personal service in the sale of our home. Her seamless teamwork, integrity and dynamic sales and marketing skills achieved an extremely favourable result. She was committed in her unique marketing approach, tailored to our individual needs, together with her outstanding sales expertise. Carol was exceptional. She kept us updated, advised us confidently and without intimidation. We would highly recommend Carol as an honest, mature and professional real estate agent
Carol is very dedicated to her mission of finding a buyer. Open homes were scheduled and took place irrespective of weather conditions. She in honest and trustworthy and her previous overseas real estate agents experience shows in her style and dedication. Recommended for any listing.
‘I recently had the pleasure of dealing with Carol Jennings with my new home purchase in Terrigal. Her professionalism and advice on particular properties I was considering definitely helped me make the right decision in the end. Carol understood my needs and was able to show me the properties available that suited my requirements. I am more than happy with my purchase and I can highly recommend Carol for all my buying and selling needs’
We have recently sold our house through Raine and Horne Terrigal-Avoca Beach with Carol Jennings and have enjoyed the experience. Carol had been diligent, engaging and terrific on following up any potential buyers on our behalf. I would recommend her to any prospective seller who wants an honest, complete and dedicated agent
”I cannot recommend Carol highly enough. Not only is she incredibly professional and honest, her dedication to making a sale knows no bounds, not only did she arrange and attend our contract exchange on her day off, she also opened our apartment for a one off inspection on Mothers day! She is amazing.”
Carol Jennings did an excellent job and made me feel very secure in the knowledge that they did everything possible to achieve the best possible result whilst caring for my home in my absence. I would have no hesitation in recommending Carol Jennings
We have sold with Carol twice and this time, Carol sold our property within 5 days of going to the market. Carol kept us informed through the whole process and we would definitely recommend Carol to anyone considering placing their property on the market
Not only was Carol Jennings a great agent and achieved a sale at a price we were happy with, her staff also provided an excellent service. We were kept fully informed at all times. Hardworking, honest and trustworthy, we felt secure and looked after and Carol achieved the best result… We would highly recommend Raine & Horne, Terrigal should you be buying or selling. Great Company to deal with.
If you want to ensure you are in good/safe/capable and honest hands when selling your property then you cannot go past Carol Jennings of Raine & Horne Terrigal/Avoca. Carol was able to achieve a price well beyond my expectations in only 9 days! The entire process was easy and stress free and this is entirely down to Carol’s hard work behind the scenes.
Carol was focused, efficient, hard working and honest – keeping us informed through every step of the process. With an outdated home on a very large block, she extolled the potential to every viewer, and we achieved a greater than expected result. Her local knowledge is exemplary, she put her personal stamp on the decorating and her integrity is second to none.
To all that are considering Carol. I found her to be hard working, true to her word and honest. Has considered our expectations and has delivered an outcome satisfactorily. Definitely worth considering having as your realtor.
My wife and I purchased a unit in Terrigal some ten months ago via auction. In the lead up to the auction Carol provided us with all the information we requested as well as answering honestly any questions we raised. The auction process was handled in a professional and transparent manner.
We recently purchased a house with the aid of Carol Jennings. We felt Carol was an agent that actually listened to us. We believe Carol was honest in her dealings with us and her level of integrity was of the highest. We are delighted to have purchased our new home with Carol’s expertise.
Carol Jennings was a pleasure to deal with. We had certain requirements in the purchase of a semi-retirement home and Carol exceeded our expectations. Not only could she understand our needs, Carol was very professional and an excellent communicator throughout the purchase. I would certainly recommend her services.
Honest, reliable, hardworking. Great knowledge of local area. Pleasure to work with!
We found Carol to be honest, efficient, hard working and persistent in following up potential buyers. Would recommend
We were very impressed with the professionalism and caring nature Carol displayed and at all times she was most helpful. Both buyer and seller were equally impressed by the high standards displayed and that caring genuine attitude. We shall certainly recommend to all we meet.
Carol was amazing throughout the whole process. She was extremely professional however also very personal and compassionate in the sale of my Mums unit. We felt no need in getting any other agent to look at the property after our initial meeting with Carol. We were always kept informed about any progress and she was available to answer questions or give support whenever needed. Will highly recommend her to family and friends and anyone looking to sell or buy a property. If we sell our property in the future we will definitely be doing so with Carol. Very happy with the entire process. Thank you Carol!
We would highly recommend Carol to any vendor looking to sell or for any purchasers (as is our case) looking for a great honest agent with excellent communication skills. Carol worked tirelessly (including showing us the property after hours on the weekend) to ensure that we could purchase the property we wanted despite our extremely short time frame.
From the moment we first met Carol she has done nothing but make life so easy for us. Always updating us with information throughout the process. Organised multiple visits. Reassured and helped us with everything we needed. Carol’s knowledge for the area is second too none! Carol is a fantastic agent and ill be recommending her too everyone. 5 stars!!
Excellent market knowledge; great communicator; very effective. Would recommend Carol without hesitation to anybody planning to sell property in North Avoca.
The process of buying our first help was such an easy and exciting process having Carol as our agent. Communication was excellent and nothing was ever too much. I couldn’t recommend a better agent!
In our search for a new home we encountered numerous real estate agents from the Lower North Shore to the Central Coast. It was not until we met with Carol Jennings that we realised what an attentive real estate agent is. From the moment we were introduced to Carol …we were treated with the utmost courtesy and attention and were immediately shown properties for sale in our price range and taken to inspect several. When we decided to make an offer on our new property, Carol handled the negotiations with the utmost professionalism and went out of her way to be of assistance,taking and making numerous phone calls to follow up the owner whose husband was overseas. These calls continued on weekends (Sunday) and a public holiday. Carol worked tirelessly to ensure we obtained vacant possession of the property,which was under rental lease. We can not thank Carol enough for her professionalism in attending to all our needs and ultimately ensuring we obtained possession on settlement which saved us having to rent a property for three to four months. We have no hesitation in recommending Carol to any seller or buyer of real estate . She would most definitely be our first contact should we need to use her services any time in the future.
We just had to write a review for Carol. As I’m a real estate agent myself out of this area ,we decided to give my property to Carol after reading reviews from other clients she has dealt with. Finding an agent in my area with solid results and access to a database full of buyers was important to us. As it turns out we had a preview for buyers from the data base, two strong buyers came forward from that and we achieved the price we wanted / far more than first expected . Carols communication and negotiation skills were outstanding. So a very big thank you to you Carol for this. Greg and Mischelle :)
We had a good experience dealing with Carol as a buyer. Buying from interstate is not easy and she made the process as easy as possible.
We’d like to let everyone know what a great job Carol did regarding the sale of our house in North Avoca. We live in Brisbane so it was really important for us to have a local, trust worthy and capable sales agent who would help us with the preparation for sale and keep us well informed. Carol exceeded all our expectations. The house needed a refresh after being tenanted for a number of years. Carol provided useful advice so we didn’t over capitalise. She also recommended a local firm to assist with furnishing the house and it looked stunning. After one open house, the house sold in 3 days. Carol also negotiated very well late Monday night to ensure we got the right price. We would thoroughly recommend Carol for her professionalism, local knowledge, strong performance as well as being very nice to deal with.
My husband and I have been in the market for over a year. I’m sure that many agents must have thought we are ‘time wasters’, but not Carol. Saturday after Saturday we bumped into each other… her sincere honesty and passion for finding the right home is what got us across the line! Carol is our agent, has become a dear friend and I will recommend her any day to anybody!!! 5 Star Rating does not do her justice!
Carol worked tirelessly to achieve a result, our sale price was in the middle of her expected range. She went out of her way to spruce up the home at her own expense and we are sure this had had some bearing on the result. Carol kept us informed immediately after the open house inspections and followed up potential buyers and overall the auction was a success.
Carol was helpful and quick to respond to all my queries through the entire process. This made a normally stressful time stress free !!
Carol was an excellent help with the purchase of our unit. We had a few issues throughout the duration and she was diligent, thoughtful and always happy to work through these concerns to find solutions. Her friendly, easy going attitude was refreshing and helped during some stressful moments. We rented through her agency as we had built trust and am happy with the service we have received. We would strongly recommend Carol.
As first home buyers, we knew very little about the process of purchasing a property, so we were incredibly grateful to have an agent like Carol. She was extremely patient, efficient, and easy to understand. She welcomed any question we had and was able to answer it immediately. The whole process was made easier and less daunting having an agent who was so experienced, proficient and professional. I highly recommended Carol.
Carol was very helpful in a number of areas and offered ongoing support which we have not as yet had to avail ourselves of but its nice to know it is there in the future.
Carol has been more like a friend over the years, she originally managed our rental properties then moved into Sales. She stayed in touch and always was super friendly, attentive, reliable and honest.
Carol has a huge indepth market knowledge of the area which when we came to sell was easy for us to choose her. 100% happy customers. We will certainly use Carol when searching for our next property.
Carol has been very efficient and approachable. She offered me her professional advice when selling my property in Narara. She has been constantly in touch with me to provide me the update during the process. Also she has a good team to support her. My property was settled smoothly without me putting much effort. Thank you Carol for your wonderful work!
Carol did a great job of auctioning my property in North Avoca. She worked hard and achieved a great result that was way above expectations.
Carol recently sold our house at North Avoca. Carol presents and acts as a professional. She presented her plan of our marketing campaign well and was confident she would try to acheive the price we wanted. Our house sold quickly with Carol negotiating a good price in a short time. Thanks Carol for a job well done. Regards Chris and Lisa
Carol and her team were a pleasure to deal with. Polite, punctual and professional as well as being friendly and generous with her time. Together we achieved a great result. Thanks Carol
Carol was a pleasure to deal with and made the process so simple. There were quite a few parties involved in this transaction which could have delayed the process, however Carol kept me informed every step of the way. She went above and beyond to assist in any way possible both during the negotiation as well as after the exchange of contracts.
As a purchaser we found Carol honest and very helpful through the process. She was always willing to assist with inspections etc and was extremely helpful and responsive to all queries we had. I would not hesitate to use her if I was looking to sell.
Carol delivered on our agreed expectations.
Efficient and very professional
We first noticed our unit in the display window of Raine & Horne Terrigal late on Sunday 14 October 2017. We immediately inquired in the office and were told it had just gone on the market. The office said listing Agent Carol Jennings was not then available but if we left out contact mobile Carol would ring ASAP. Carol rang back as we were leaving Terrigal and we arranged to inspect the unit the next Tuesday 17 October. We saw the unit then and commenced negotiations back at the Agents office. Carol skillfully handled negotiations back and forth between the vendors and ourselves and price was agreed. We moved very quickly to arrange all pre exchange issues and Carol was most helpful in ensuring a very quick exchange of contracts on Friday 20 October 2017.
Carol showed a great deal of confidence in selling my property. She knew what my home needed to prepare for sale; presentation, advertisement, contacts. She was honest and very professional and I may add made my life easier. I would recommend her skills, knowledge and professional approach anytime. Your home will be in good hands.
We couldn’t be happier with Carol. Carol did a wonderful job and such a quick and easy sale. Thank you very much, we really appreciate everything you have done for us.
I would give Carol 10/10 easy, after seeing her at a couple of open homes she understood what I was really after, I was not getting silly phone calls to suggesting to come and look at this and that, she only called me when there really was something that I would like which is great because she didn’t waste my time. Eventually I brought a property off the market after looking seriously for about 6 months. Even her assistant gave us really great advice about different suburbs around the areas that we were looking at, Carol and her assistant is the best team I have ever come across, they don’t come across as that pushy carsales man but as people that truely want to help you find that right place for you to call home and never want to leave.
Carol is a woman of integrity and this quality transferred to her real estate skills.
She had a fine balance between working for the vendor while working with purchasers.
We have no hesitation in recommending her as the best agent for North Avoca and surrounds. We were extremely happy with the way she handled our sale, not to forget the after sales assistance too
Very helpful agent with a large amount of market knowledge. Carol went out of her way for us on multiple occasions until we found the right property.
Approachable and straight forward.
Selling a property is stressful, with lots that needs to be done, and often the very best person to help make this happen is the agent. Carol Jennings and her team certainly helped us through this process with the minimum of stress and with all the matters arising well anticipated. And, of course, the whole purpose was to ensure that any potential purchaser was made aware of the opportunity: done with flair.
We chose Carol to act as our agent for many reasons but largely due to her communication skills. She is open, honest, extremely responsive and treats both buyers and sellers with the greatest amount of respect. Carol and her team worked hard during the entire process and were proactive in their approach to securing us a sale. We would definitely recommend!
Carol was great to deal with and I can’t ask for an easier transaction. Looked on a SAT Morning and finalized on SAT ARVO… Easy!!
Pleasure to deal with. Top Notch Agent.
Carol was the vendor’s Agent on our purchase of an investment property. She was a tough negotiator at that time and represented the vendor’s interests strongly. We selected her as our Agent on the sale of the same property based on her proven record as an effective vendor’s Agent. Carol listened to our views on the market and potential selling prices, provided sound advice on marketing and was diligent in feedback. The property was sold for a record price.
Fully armed with all the factual evidence CAROL separates the wannabe buyers with “we think you’ll have to come up with another 25k from that position” and zooms in on a real possible target with “another 10k please if you sincerely want this house.” One simply has to oblige under this very polite pressure. I hate to give away any more secrets but Carol simply has the knack of a war bomber going in for the kill.
Carol was keen, professional, friendly & easy to deal with. Always on hand to answer any questions or queries. Worked hard to get the highest price possible. She & her PA Liz were always friendly & efficient. Would recommend!!
Thanks Carol, my son and i are thrilled with our new unit.. Your expertise, knowledge and speedy negotiation, made it so easy for us.. No nervous anxious wait, just agreed, signed, sealed and owned. So thrilled with our purchase.. Many thanks Julie & Riley
I chose Carol to sell my property at North Avoca because of her proven record of achieving good results in all market conditions.
Carol’s vast experience ensured a smooth sale from listing to settlement. From personally rearranging furniture and even supplying decor for better presentation, through to organising a quick settlement necessary at the time, Carol was great value.
Together with her Personal Assistant Liz, who provided regular detailed written reports on all enquiries and inspections, they relentlessly searched for the most suitable buyer, who was then expertly managed.
Carol’s ability to politely talk sense to people, produced a very good outcome for all concerned. A first class agent in my experience easy to manage, charming.
What a pleasure it was dealing with you during the sale of our house. You made the experience stress free and so simple. Additionally, the after sales care and attention you provided was fantastic. Your opposition agents also spoke of you with high esteem which persuaded us to use you as our agent. We will definitely recommend you to anyone contemplating selling their home.
Carol was wonderful. Her knowledge of the process , area and necessary steps for settlement , were unmatched in the years of buying houses.
She also managed the seller well and moved the sale along quickly and efficiently. Thanks Carol.
Carol Jennings has, as always been fantastic to deal with in the recent sale of our property in Terrigal. From first meeting Carol some 6 years ago, I knew I was talking with the right agent for my property requirements. Carol is a specialist in the Terrigal and North Avoca bowls and is able to supply a very detailed perspective on which properties have done what, what work has been done, which ones have been ripped down and rebuilt and of course, the pricing history and expectations, beyond what can be found on the web. Carol is a realist when it comes to pricing expectations and is above all, a professional. Thanks Carol and team for a wonderful, trouble free experience.
We were delighted with Carol Jennings, and our overall experience of working with her & the team. Every recommendation was spot on, and gave us so much confidence as we moved through the process. The care and detail that Carol applies to her work is unrivalled. I was so impressed at the thoughtfulness and care that went into writing the description of our house, and the love that was put into the photos and determining the right audience as potential buyers. Carol was always professional, elegant and caring for both the vendors and the buyer. I truly felt that she and the team had all of our best interests at heart. Our house sold exceptionally quickly, and it was an easy experience. Thank you Carol and the team. Highly recommended!
I purchased a house at auction recently for which Carol was the agent. Carol was so helpful in facilitating the sale. She was easy to contact, quick to reply, gave a clear price estimate and good information so I could see how that price was arrived at and I felt confident in the information she gave me. Between auction and settlement she remained great to deal with, providing access to the property so I could hit the ground running with my renovation as soon as settlement concluded. I would not hesitate to use Carol if I was selling my property in future.
Carol is a great agent, friendly and efficient.nothing was a problem..would buy from her again
Carol from Day 1 was amazing. Great knowledge of the local area and great style/marketing advice. She kept us informed through the whole process and felt like we were part of a team. Excellent negotiating skills to get us the sale price we needed for our family. Definitely recommend Carol.
A true Professional. Carol’s calm, professional manner made the house selling ‘journey’ much less traumatic. Her market knowledge, communication skills, and dedication were invaluable.
We have found working with Carol Jennings and her team a very rewarding experience, particularly so in the current housing situation. We developed an effective marketing strategy with very good communication and ongoing feedback which resulted in a successful sale.
I found Carol to be a genuine, caring, and wise person to deal with. She had a thorough understanding of the market and my unique position. I will definitely use Carol again for any property engagements.
Here’s a few things I would like to say about Carol Jennings, the agent. Carol was very honest, supportive at all times, listened to us, always gave practical advice and changed that advice as the matter progressed and the market changed. She suggested things like a short video, which I believe proved a winner and talked about styling our home. Everyone thinks their home is perfect, but the small changes suggested made all the difference which was mainly just limiting our many precious keepsakes on display so the features of the house itself stood out. Everything was practical and moved the sale forward.
Unfortunately, we were selling in a hard market and Carol changing strategy was very effective. We felt Carol believed in our house and would even say “hello house” on arrival. Carol always kept us up to date and attended the open houses herself so we felt relaxed that a very experienced agent was at all opens.
I would also like to say that when you attend other open houses and mention any other houses you are looking at, if the agent criticises other properties, ask yourself whether that criticism is warranted or does it really bother you or is that agent just chasing a quick commission!!! If this happens, can I suggest you go back to Carol and discuss those criticisms as I feel sure she will give you an honest truthful answer.
Did I mention she is very very determined and I know why she chose real estate as her career. She has a 5-star rating that’s for sure.
Carol is very experienced, has a wealth of knowledge. She is straight talking about expectations when selling your house.
Looking for a buyer? There’s a recession? A world-wide pandemic? With everyone in lockdown and locked in? Not a problem!
CAROL at Raine&Horne is your agent for such a task. Within a fortnight Carol had the boards, the photographers, the multi-media advertising campaign and her personal files working their magic. Buyers were being SWATTED AWAY! “You’re too late!” she said, a good offer in hand, for my much loved villa needing a new chatelaine… The buyer was gleeful. And I was ecstatic. Less than half a dozen showings. And the house EXCHANGED! You wont be led astray with Carol. And old hand, by now, at this sort of thing, under any conditions the Universe cares to through her way.
We worked with Carol to buy a place in Terrigal. She went above and beyond. What a professional! Would definitely engage her to sell a place. No wonder she has won so many awards.
She made it easy!
I was a nervous buyer, always second guessing myself and overthinking – well, it is a big deal buying a home so I wanted to get it right! Throughout my search Carol was the only agent that I dealt with that I felt was actively working hard to make sure I got what I wanted. Even when I looked like buying elsewhere from another agent she was encouraging, pointing out the positives of the other property as well as a few negatives. This was huge, for her to be genuinely happy for me even when it looked like I was going to go with another agent won a lot of points with me. She is human first, agent second. In the end, the property she found me was the right one for me, and when I finally came around to that way of thinking (whilst she was on annual leave in Europe! Sorry about that Carol!) she took charge, taking all the daunting aspects away and made the transaction a breeze. Thank you Carol, I couldn’t be happier with my new home and I couldn’t be happier that the whole experience was made so easy with you steering the ship.
Very easy purchase.
Carol was helpful, not pushy, and our discussions were frank and honest when purchasing a villa in Kincumber. I found her very easy and transparent to deal with. Would consider her to represent me if selling a property in future.
I recently sold a property 7/20 The Esplanade Terrigal with Carol Jennings acting as my agent. I chose Carol as my agent because I was impressed by her market knowledge and forthright communication skills.Carol gave me a market appraisal which estimated a sale price higher than I had expected and well above that advised by other agents. I trusted Carol to get it right and I was very happy when she achieved a great price . I was impressed with Carol’s honesty ,strong communication skills, ethical behaviour and willingness to help with every detail.Carol also assisted with contacts for cleaning ,styling, removalists and conveyancing. I recommend Carol as a strong advocate ,trustworthy and hard working.
Great Local market knowledge.
Carol has outstanding knowledge of the local area and the community.
Integrity, honesty and attention to detail all come to my mind when discussing real estate agent Carol Jennings. I would recommend her without hesitation. She made the sale of our family home of 23 years, smooth and pain free with a fantastic result. Carol supported us, from our initial conversation till settlement day with great understanding and empathy. She’s had extensive experience in the industry and it shows. Everything was done to the highest calibre without wasting our time or money. I’m very grateful we enlisted Carol to sell our property. She is a one of a kind agent.
