Carol provided in-depth knowledge of the area and she showed us only houses that we wanted to see. She was also able to help us get a better price on the condo we bought.
I live in Ohio buying in Florida!
Carol was ‘beside’ me every step of the way. She’s very professional and knowledgeable of the entire process. When I needed help or had a question, she was my ‘go to’ lady. She became not only my realtor but my friend! Outstanding Lady and Realtor!
Carol takes total ownership of the process, she is always available, has a full knowledge of the areas she serves, and reaches out proactively. In my experience, she has demonstrated knowledge about local covenants and always knows whom to contact if there is a question or issue. She negotiates in good faith and has always demonstrated that she has her client’s best interest in mind. As an aside, I was unaware that some agents do not participate in the home inspection process either in selling or buying. This was a great shock to me, as Carol has always been present throughout entire inspections for the properties that I have purchased and sold. She is a kind and lovely person as well as being an exemplary professional, and I recommend her without reservation!
Very detail oriented, always timely with follow up. Sound recommendation and advice on contract review. Very knowledgeable on current marketplace and local selling trends. A realtor that truely cares!
Attentive and energetic, provided timely feedback on all showings and followed up with potential purchasers. Helpful in providing guidance to assist in showing the home.

I highly recommend Carol Marra as a broker, if I had to use one word it would be “Outstanding”. Several months ago my wife and I started working with Carol in the Bradenton area and another broker further south in the Venice area. Both brokers over a few months sent us listing in each area. My wife and I picked the properties we wanted to see in both areas and made the trip from NY to do so. We found the properties in Bradenton far better for what we wanted. We settled on River Strand in Heritage Harbor. The complex offered us golf, pools, beautiful clubhouse, very nice people, walking trails, great value, awesome beaches, area shopping & restaurants and so much more. There was no comparison in value between the two areas. This would not of been possible without the hard work of Carol in finding what we wanted. The next step was the contract, inspection and closing. We were able to do all of this remotely thanks to Carol. Whatever we needed Carol took care of. The whole process could not of been any simpler. Anytime I had a question Carol provided quick responses. Bottom line, if you want a very dedicated broker who cares and I stress who cares Carol is the broker you want. We have been here several months and truly love it, all of visitors are so impressed by what we have here. Thank you Carol. I would be more than happy to answer any questions anyone has. Mike & Janis
Carol did an exemplary job in selling my home; I’ve never had an agent who worked harder. The pictures on the web site were great and the listing was available to buyers within a couple of days. She answered emails and phone calls in a very timely manner and she knew what she was talking about. She’s very pleasant and personable and very easy to deal with. The house sold within two weeks. She is very patient and helped me deal with a difficult and picky buyer.

We are British clients and therefore seek a calm approach with information and help which is not overwhelmed with `marketing bias’ and/or too much `hype’!
Although foreign nationals we are experienced USA home owners, having had eight previous homes in the USA and having also lived there for a while. We know what to expect and what is happening and wanted assistance and support `not sales’!
We found Carol by ringing her number from one of her listings.
After meeting Carol we immediately warmed to her and made the decision that this time we would use her services for our property search. We may add, that we shall be using her again when we come to sell or buy in Sarasota.
Carol Marra did an outstanding job representing our family in the sale of our home in Florida. She supported us through every step from researching comparable sales to closing day. We followed her recommendations and sold the house in less than 48 hours to a qualified buyer! I would not hesitate to recommend Carol to represent anyone who is selling or buying a home in the Bradenton area.
Carol is extremely thorough and has a great “feel” for the community. She seems to love her work, is always available for questions/concerns, and is actively involved in all phases. She was present for the entire home inspection. She has a great eye and does a “magical” job of staging a home. Her photographer is ‘top shelf.” After seeing the video he created, I thought I wanted to stay in my home! But I didn’t, it sold in about 9 days!
