Hi! I’m Carolyn
I’ll MEet you where you are
Carolyn is an inherent believer in honesty, transparency, working hard, and working smart. She generously shares vast knowledge, prudent guidance, and creative advice with her clients. She navigates with purpose and a calm demeanor to get you where you want to go. Skillful in contract knowledge, she’s a keen strategist, negotiator, and excellent in communication…all while making the process of buying or selling enjoyable!
Carolyn has worked in the real estate industry for over 30 years and has an excellent reputation with her fellow Realtors. Her knowledge and fairness in the industry has helped her “win” deals just because of her reputation of hard work and high ethical standards amongst her peers. With a background in marketing & advertising real estate, Carolyn, for three years, worked with a partnership of investors who built several spec homes in Marin County. Most recently she is focused full-time on her award-winning real estate sales and also serves on the Board of Directors of Marin Realtors®.
Carolyn has lived in Marin County since 1986 where she raised her three sons. Always on the go as a mother/ homemaker/ businesswoman/ artist/ gardener, an elderly neighbor nick-named her “Martha Poppins” many years ago and it suits her well! When Carolyn is not working with her clients, she stays active hiking Marin’s hills, doing home projects, creating art, cooking, and her favorite: sharing food, drink, and conversation with friends & family al fresco on her patio or gathered around her dining room table with a cozy fire and candlelight. Home IS where the heart is!

“Working with Carolyn on the sale of our home was a pleasure. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional. Working with her was a true partnership — a give and take of information and perspectives. She is extremely reliable and responsive. She proactively gathered critical market and prospective buyer insights which resulted in us getting our desired asking price and a full price offer within days. Closing was prompt and virtually flawless!”
“Carolyn Moren is the best! I never felt that her concerns were to earn a commission — she kept my best interest at the forefront at all times. Carolyn treated me like family and worked far, far beyond the call of duty to help get my parents’ house ready to put on the market. In the end, we received an off-market, over-asking price before painting and staging which suited me perfectly. I can’t recommend Carolyn highly enough for real estate assistance.”
“Carolyn was an amazing partner in my home buying journey. I’m a single, first time buyer that works too much and I literally couldn’t have done it without her. No matter what happened, I knew I could count on Carolyn – ie me falling out of Escrow on the first place and having to start all over, meeting inspectors for me so that I didn’t have to take too much time off work, following up with my non-responsive lending agency, and finding the right contractors to make renovations post-purchase. Plus, she’s fun and extremely positive.! I love my house and I’m so glad that I worked with Carolyn. 10/10 recommend!”
