"Carol was great - couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. We were looking for a home in Evanston and Wilmette and Carol was able to get us early looks and helped negotiate a home price within our budget."

"Carol Hunt with Baird & Warner does a great job representing sellers and buyers on the North Shore in the Chicago area. Carol is passionate and extremely knowledgeable about real estate. She is excellent at listening to clients’ needs and preferences, which translates into a better and more efficient journey. She is discerning about using time well and focusing on clients’ priorities. Her insights enable her to clearly analyze which solutions most closely align with clients’ preferences. Carol has a good temperament for working with people and reducing as much stress as possible that can be associated with buying or selling real estate.

Carol has a tremendous referral network across the country as well; she is happy to connect people with a realtor in other markets who is a good match. Every friend who has worked with Carol to either sell or buy a home, or who was referred to a realtor in another market by Carol, has thanked me for recommending her. I’m grateful Carol has paved the way for me several times.
— She referred me to a fabulous realtor in WA in the 1990s.
— In the 2000s, Carol helped me with a purchase in Chicago. I couldn't have been happier!
— Carol found a rental for us during a transition.
— Now, she is going above and beyond as the realtor representing me in purchasing a home.

Even if I wasn’t related to Carol, she is the agent I would choose for buying or selling residential real estate. I’ve heard it said that Carol is a “real pro.” I couldn’t agree more!"

"Carol helped us prepare our home for sale, came up with many creative ways to market the house, and brought many buyers through the house. She worked with us as offers came in to respond in a way that was respectful of all involved. Her excellent negotiating skills meant a fair transaction for all involved. I would highly recommend her."

"Carol is, without a doubt, one of top real estate agents in the North Shore area. She has helped us sell a home, then buy a home and, 14 years later, sell a home. Once the sale/purchase is in play, she is on the case almost 24/7. She draws from deep expertise having been involved in many purchases/sales. She know how to help through the negotiation process. -Very satisfied."
