Carrie is the best! She went out of her way to show us homes or answer texts whenever something came up. She helped us to quickly sell our home and successfully find a new one that we love. At all times she always had our back, even after the closing. Highly recommended!


I would highly recommend Carrie if you are in the market for an agent that will give you the best possible attention and detail to selling your home or are considering the purchase of a new home. She is very knowledgeable regarding the current housing market…


Carrie Hatfield is a top notch professional realtor! I would highly recommend her. She handled the selling of my first home and was very knowledgeable about all aspects of home selling/buying, and was quick to always keep me informed or respond when I had questions…
