About Me

Carrie began her sales career shortly after graduating from college. Working for numerous start-up companies and managing major accounts taught her the power of connecting with people and honed her problem-solving skills. In 1994, Carrie obtained her real estate license and applied her skills and passions to selling homes. She discovered it required a lot of hard work to be successful, and successful she has been, working in the Redwood City-San Carlos office of Coldwell Banker for almost 26 years before joining Golden Gate Sotheby’s International Realty in February 2020.

Carrie is a 24-year resident of San Carlos, where she has raised three boys with her husband, Grant. She believes deeply in investing her energies into the community and has long been involved in volunteer work, starting with the Junior League of Palo Alto-Mid Peninsula. A passionate advocate for education, Carrie has served as president of the San Carlos Educational Foundation and as a school board trustee since 2005, when she was elected to the San Carlos Elementary School District Board of Trustees. That same year, she was named San Carlos Citizen of the Year.

Carrie's desire to advocate for high-risk youth, blend communities, and improve outcomes for all students led her to run successfully for a seat on the Sequoia Union High School District Board of Trustees in 2011. Among other important accomplishments, Carrie has helped to stimulate community conversations about mental health and trauma that affect student learning.

Carrie’s true gift is working with people. She finds it deeply satisfying to use her extensive knowledge of the community and the local real estate market to help others find their place.
