Carol was groomed from an early age to be an entrepreneur, an expert negotiator and an award winning real estate agent. Originally from Philadelphia, Carol was raised in New Jersey, but chose to spend her weekends in "Philly" assisting her grandparents who emigrated from Italy. Carol's grandfather was a shoemaker and her grandmother a seamstress. At the age of 8 she watched both grow their respective businesses from the ground up without speaking a word of English. She watched them masterfully negotiate the prices for the necessary piece goods to run their small companies. Due to her admiration, respect and fascination, she knew then that she wanted to enter a similar business. Carol decided she would become a part of the fashion industry, which she didn't realize at the time, would continue to hone the necessary skills that she would later use in the frenetic and competitive real estate business in what she considers to be the greatest and most energetic city in the world.

After graduating from Rowan University with her business degree, she attended FIT and earned her degree in fashion. As a buyer, Carol worked for the most prestigious retailers in Manhattan -- Barney's New York, Bergdorf Goodman and Macy's Herald Square. After transitioning to the sales side--- she became the #1 salesperson in her showroom and was quickly promoted to showroom manager.

During her fashion career, Carol encountered several unique real estate opportunities. Being a true entrepreneurial Aries, she jumped into these opportunities with both feet. Carol completed coursework in architecture and interior design at NYSID to make sure she was fully prepared. She proceeded to buy and flip multi-million dollar properties in such diverse places as Key West, FL, Westport CT, Westchester, NY and Rhinebeck, NY in the Hudson Valley just to name a few. Because of her discriminating eye for detail, she was able to restore everything from farmhouses dating back to the late 1700's, historic carriage homes from the 1850's, mid-century modern homes and pre/post war apartments. Due to her unique skill set--an expert negotiator, 20 plus years of real estate sales experience and first-hand knowledge of interior design and architecture, Carol is the consummate real estate professional.

Whether you choose to work with Carol representing you as a buyers or sales broker---you can rest assured that her diverse experience and education will be put to good use whether you are buying or selling a home. The foundation of her business is a work ethic that her grandparents instilled in her-work hard, be honest and treat everyone with respect and as an individual. After all, selling property is a transition in a person or family's life, not just a transaction.

In her spare time, Carol focuses on her other passions-- food and wine. As a culinary enthusiast, she attended cooking classes on agrio-tours in Italy and was the First-Place winner of a national cooking contest sponsored by All Clad cookware and The Gourmet Garage. Whether making homemade pasta, baking biscotti or creating interesting toppings for her artisanal pizza, Carol finds cooking very relaxing.

Carol is not only your best resource regarding the real estate industry, but can guide you in the best dining and shopping experiences as she helps you find your perfect dream home in the "Big Apple".

Carol is also fortunate enough to work with her best friend, husband, and broker, Patrick Hellwig who adds his own personal skill set and business acumen. Both in business and their personal lives they make an excellent team. She and her husband Patrick reside on the Upper East Side and travel to their Fort Lauderdale home to help their Manhattan clients find homes in Florida.
