I take after my father, whom at the age of 73, is still remodeling homes for friends and family members. When he comes to visit my family, I need to have a “project” ready for him. He works circles around me, but everyone tells me I am the same. He has taught me that there is always something to learn, almost always a “work-around” to discover, and hard work will always pay off. I work hard for my clients because I love being a Realtor® and I truly care that they are protected and prepared to purchase or sell what could be the largest investment they will ever make in their life.
My clients give me 5* reviews because I make them my top priority. If I do not answer the phone immediately, I am calling back shortly after. I do this because I remember being a first-time homebuyer and seller. When I got nervous, I wanted my Realtor® to help guide me when I needed it, not the next day when they “find the time.”
Prior to real estate, I worked as a federal employee paying travel and commercial accounts. The contracts and regulations were long and tedious, but that is where I first learned to never accept a “no” for an answer, until you’ve tried every alternative route.
I served in the Army National Guard for 10 years. My last job was Explosives Ordinance Disposal. I have used the VA loan for both myself and my clients. I am well versed in the VA’s disallowable’s, and I will re-assure any seller that is hesitant to accept a VA offer.
I have been married for 12 years with 2 children, Alyssa and Mason. We push our children to be open-minded kind people. I was extremely proud that my daughter was the recipient of the American Legion Award for her elementary school, because that summarizes our family’s main core values: Courage, honor, and service to our community.
And that’s who I am in a nutshell! But now, let’s talk about you!
Give me a call today, 832-915-8401
Born and raised in the Clear Lake/Friendswood/Pearland area with over a decade of experience in the real estate industry, helping clients find a home is a privilege and experience I treasure.
I am committed to providing my clients with dependable, honest and first rate service making buying or selling real estate an enjoyable and stress free experience.
Carolyn Sprouse began her real estate career in early 2000 when she decided to make a career change from an outside sales manager in the environmental industry to a new homes sales counselor for a builder. Carolyn’s passion for real estate became obvious within a couple of months of starting her new career. The experience she gained working in new home sales encouraged her to obtain her Realtor® license so she could expand her business to include sellers and rental properties.
Buying or selling a home is a major life decision which can be very stressful at times. Carolyn understands these stressors for both buyers and sellers, so she works diligently with each client to provide them the tools and resources they need to make good decisions. She works hand-in-hand with her clients from beginning to end.
Carolyn is very dedicated and loyal to her clients. She loves helping buyers find their dream home, and loves when sellers identify the contract that fits their needs. She looks forward to the opportunity of being your Realtor®.
I have lived in the Pasadena Area for over 35 years and have worked in the Clear Lake Area for 20 years working as a court clerk. My hobbies are cooking, walking, boating and family. I have had my real estate license since 2006 after finishing school from Champions School of Real Estate. I love helping people buy or sale their home and helping their dreams come true by making the process easier for you and worry free. Whatever your needs are I will use my knowledge and work hard to help you find the perfect location for you and your family.
I have been a real estate agent for seven years. I work with my daughter and son-in-law who are also realtors. We love to help people sell their homes so they can move on to their next home. We also like to help people find just the right home that fits their family. I also enjoy doing volunteer work and have recently become a CASA volunteer to help abused and neglected children find a home they can thrive in.
