    Caran did an excellent job guiding us through the sale of our home. I would highly recommend her.
    Chloe gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran is hands down the best realtor! She goes above and beyond to help you. My husband and I looked at several homes until we found the perfect one for us, and Caran was so patient with us throughout the process. She stayed on top of everything for us, and she made it so easy. Caran was such a blessing to us, and I would recommend her to anyone. She will help you find your perfect home and continue to help you all the way through the process.
    James gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran was great we think of her as one of the family now!
    Wendy gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Working with Caran is like a breath of fresh air in the real estate business. Always responsive, so positive, returns calls in hours not days, never makes you feel rushed or pushes too hard. She found our perfect lake home and we found the perfect realtor.
    Jay gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Spring and summer of this year were probably the worst buyer's market in memory. Caran made the process as painless as possible and was always willing to schedule viewings of new houses on very short notice. She was always accessible and responsive, and worked closely with my wife and I, our loan officer and maintained open communications throughout the process.
    Kari gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    We enjoyed working with Caran. She has a vast knowledge of the market but shares it in a quiet comforting way that keeps you from feeling that she is trying to control the situation. This allows for a quality experience because she just let's you find your own way instead of pushing for a decision. She was the most responsive realtor that I have ever had as she was prompt on communication and extremely helpful in solving the minor hiccups that one encounters through both the negotiation and closing process. Perfect realtor for someone who knows what they are looking for and just needs help in finding their dream home.

    Carran was great to work with!
    jeanne gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    I cannot say enough good things about Caran, both as a realtor and as a person. I have purchased and sold a home through Caran before, and never even CONSIDERED using a different realtor. She goes even further than the extra mile, doing everything she possibly can to help her clients. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
    Jacalyn gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Was great working with Carin again. My daughter did the house hunt with her and was able to find the ideal location! Carin also sent me a lot of helpful links and about local utilities.
    Mike & Charlotte gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    When we decided to sell our beautiful Smith Lake home we knew there was only ONE realtor to call - Caran Wilbanks! Her professionalism, extensive knowledge of waterfront property and "can do" attitude exceeded our every need. One call did it all - CARAN, Thank You for making our dreams come true! Michael and Charlotte Dougherty
    Tony gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran is awesome! Her attention to all the details and persistence is why we have always looked to her for all our real estate sales and purchases for the last 23 years.
    Warren & Karen gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Our home buying and selling experience was completely unplanned. Our home was destroyed by storm damage and we suddenly found ourselves homeless. Caran was there for us in our dilemma and shock. She tirelessly helped us look for a new home for us and our 2 dogs. Throughout the entire adventure she was so kind, knowledgeable and helpful without overwhelming us. We found our perfectly beautiful home in our desired neighborhood with a gorgeous view. We are forever grateful and would definitely recommend Caran to be your Realtor.
    Pam gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caren found our home that we bought 20 years ago on the lake. We also moved our furniture store to Pell City at that time. She is a strong supporter of local businesses and with her recommendation to clients and friends to shop us we thrived . When it came time to move to a larger home we of course called Caren!!! She knows the area well, listened to what we wanted and here we are in our forever home. The process of selling our home and buying another was seamless as she walked us through each step of the way. The girl stays on top of things and moves quickly and proficiently . Caren loves her career , she loves people, and the Pell city /Logan Martin area! THANK YOU CAREN for being an amazing person.

    George & Betty gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Would highly recommend Caran for your real estate needs. Very personable and professional. She went above and beyond to help us with our sell of our home. She helped with a difficult buyer situation that was completely out of the normal sell of a home . Again we would highly recommend her for all your real estate needs.
    Brittney gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    I couldn't ask for a better realtor. I was most impressed with her knowledge of the area and her responsiveness. She went out of her way to accompany our work schedules and was always available when we needed her. She kept us informed throughout the entire process and always kept our best interest in mind. She is a fantastic realtor!
    Casey gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    I can not even begin to express how great Caran was! Her knowledge was the best, and if she didn't know, she worked to find the answer that moment. She was always available to answer my concerns, questions, and walked us through the entire home buying process!! I HIGHLY recommend her services for all real estate needs.
    John gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Having known Caran since our school days, I have always known her to be a person that you could believe would do the right thing, even if no one was watching. Her character is always showing. She did what we asked her to do in a very professional manner. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a real estate professional. You won't be disappointed!
    Anna gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran was available and responded to every request we had, and she sold our property quicker than I thought possible!
    Carol gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran is an excellent realtor who truly cares about her customers. She goes above and beyond to make sure that her clients purchase their dream home and sell their homes for the best price. She is in constant communication from the beginning to the end of the transactions and responds very quickly to calls , texts or emails. She treats her customers as if they are the only ones she is working with by giving them her total attention at all times. She is active in community organizations assuring that she is very knowledgeable of what is happening in the area. She has a large network of associates and suppliers making sure that she can offer advice and recommendations for anything her clients may need. She is highly respected by her associates and clients alike. her personality makes it easy and fun to work with. Her "can do" attitude makes everything seem possible and nothing too difficult to get done. She makes sure that every detail is covered prior to closing, making it go smoothly and quickly. She makes suggestions for making your house more attractive to buyers which I appreciated. Caran is the best realtor I have ever worked with and should be awarded "Best Realtor in Pell City" every year, in my opinion. Thank you Caran for helping me sell my house and buy another one. I appreciate all of your time, patience and understanding, especially when I was impatient and frustrating during the process. You never lost your cool or professionalism when fighting hard for me. I really appreciate you and will always refer anyone to you as the best in the business..
    Kenneth gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    When I think of Caran Wilbanks the first word that comes to mind is Integrity. She did a great job of communicating all the way through the process. In selling my 85 year old mothers house she went above and beyond. We could not have ask for a better experience. If you want some one that is honest with you and does everything she says she will and more then you need to call Caran.
    Charisse gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    I highly recommend Caran If you are buying or selling a home! She helped us find our first home in Pell City when we moved here 2 years ago. Recently she sold our home quickly and helped us find our dream home on the lake. She is extremely knowledgeable of the area and always available for questions! Her level of service is outstanding!
    Trey gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caron was a dual agent who from the beginning, was extremly responsive to all of our needs. She was easy to reach by phone and had the answers we were looking for. She has a lot of knowledge due to being in the industry for at least 30 years.She was on top of all the inspectors such as termite, home and septic and gave us several options to choose from. We were lucky to have her, she was a joy to work with.
    Tony & Abby gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Mrs. Caran was absolutely wonderful. We had a ton of question as we were first-time buyers. She answered all of our questions and gave us peace of mind. If and when we ever are ready to purchase another house we will definitely use her again. She also made my children feel welcome which was a HUGE plus to us. She is 1000% recommended.
    David & Lala gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    We are David and Lala Randle, and we recently sold our home which was listed with ERA King Real Estate, Caran Wilbanks. She has a high level of experience which shows in her guidance of the entire selling and buying experience. She is extremely detail oriented and helped us to prioritize what needed done, in order to put our house on the market at a great price. We listed our home based on Caran's recommendation. She responds pretty much immediately to important and not so important inquiries. In fact, we never had any idea how busy she is because she made us to feel as if we were her only clients. Caran is very honest and realistic which nowadays is a wonderful trait as too many people tell you only what you want to hear. Whether it was during the day or late at night, Caran was always very prompt in answering emails/calls/texts. Throughout the entire process we were super impressed with her professionalism. Overall, our experience working with Caran Wilbanks was Wonderful and we highly recommend her, in fact "we just love her to pieces"!
    Andy gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    We were first impressed with Caran not as our agent as sellers, but as the buyers agent. The review that she wrote after a tour of our home was impressive, leading to the sale. So, with an undeveloped property that we had on the market for some time, we turned to Caran to list it. And she came thru once again. During the process one thing that made a big impression was her quick response to any calls or messages.
    Susan Hutto gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran was great to work with. She goes above and beyond what is expected of a agent. She truly cares about her clients. I would definitely work with her again.
    Cindy gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    It was a pleasure working with Caran on the recent sale of our home. We listed our house FSBO. Although Caran represented the buyer, she was very responsive to our requests. In what turned out to be a lengthy time period from the signing of the contract to closing, Caran kept us updated on the progression of the sale. We appreciate her professionalism, and are pleased to recommend her to anyone who is in the market to buy or sell a home.
    Martha gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran Wilbanks was very professional and very interested in helping me sell my home. She listened closely to my concerns and she gave very good advice on ways to make my home more appealing. My home was sold within roughly a month of listing. I definitely recommend her service!
    Faye gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran Wilbanks was very professional and efficient in the selling of my home. Prompt and made the whole process as easy as possible. Very helpful with all the "little details" that need to be worked through. Caran was amazing. I would recommend her to anyone that is in the real estate market for buying or selling. Thank you, Caran.
    Nancy gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    It is my pleasure to write a great review for Caran Wilbanks. My husband and I have been looking at Logan Martin Lake property on and off for 10 years. Because of the advice of a mutual friend and through her website, we asked Caran to assist us to locate the perfect property. She was professional, responsive and detail oriented. She was the perfect fit for our personalities. Caran is a good listener and worked hard to find the properties that met our specifications. We asked her to revise the search criteria several times and she did so gladly and with positive results. She carefully stayed within our parameters and didn't push us to make decisions. She allowed us to move at our own pace and we are grateful. We happily recommend Caran Wilbanks if you are looking to relocate to Logan Martin Lake or surrounding areas.
    Ginger gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    We had a great experience working with Caran! She was prompt and made communications easy. We are very happy with our new home!
    Don gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Great experience with Ms Willbanks as a listing agent. Very, very knowledgeable of local real estate market and up to date trends in market. Very prompt, punctual and professional. She made everything smooth and stress free from listing to closing. We would not hesitate to use Ms Wilbanks in any other real estate matter.
    Gloria gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran is exceptional! From the moment you reach out to her until the sale closes and beyond, she has your best interest at heart!! I absolutely loved working with her and will always use Caran in the future as well!! Thank you so very much!!!
    Tom gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    What a pleasure it was to have Caran Wilbanks as our Realtor . She is always willing to give 100% effort in selling her clients home. This was the second home that Caran has sold for us.. Caran was able to sell our home within 30 days of listing. Thanks for all your help, Tom and Wanda Emerick
    Lauren gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran was a wonderful agent. We moved to the area from a different town and she made us feel right at home. We wanted a 2nd showing and she didn't bat an eyelash and met us on a weeknight. She is warm and friendly and we will turn to her in the future, should the need arise. I love that she was willing to work with us via text, email or phone call. Flexibility is her strong suit!
    Glenda gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    I knew nothing about the process of selling property, so when I reached out to Caran for help she willingly rose to the challenge. She is a genuinely nice person, friendly and caring towards everyone in my family. Many times she went beyond her job title to make the experience easier for me. She treated me like a friend rather than a client. In addition to her strengths listed below, Caran possesses a enormous amount of patience. Although it took quite a while, she persevered to find the buyer who will enjoy our property as much as we did.
    Kerry & Christie gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Getting to know Caran, and dealing with her during the sale of our existing residence and purchasing our new home was a very smooth transition. Caran always responded to my questions and concerns with a very diligent and professional way. Thank s again to Caran for everything you did !! We will always refer Caran and ERA Kng when we can.
    James gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran made our home buying experience wonderful and easy. She even picked my wife and I up at the Pell City airport while searching for properties in the Pell City area. At closing time, she drove us from the airport to the attorney's office and then took us to the offices to have our electrical, water and cable turned on before driving us back to the airport. She was constantly on top of everything and helping us with any questions or concerns. It was by far the smoothest and easiest buying experience we have had. Thank you Caran!
    Lindy gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran found the perfect buyer and did it quickly. She sold my house in only 4 months. She also sold my house for the exact price I wanted. I would highly recommend her.
    Larry gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran's service during our purchase process was extraordinary. She communicated very well and was on top of all the details. She rolled with punches from the seller agents and always had our best interest at heart. We will definitely use her services again. I would highly recommend her to both buyers and sellers. She is a true professional.
    Kerry & Amanda gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    After Caran looked at our house she insisted that the new buyers look at it and they loved it. I would use Caran again because she knows the area very well. Thanks Caran The Hatchetts
    Penny gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Ms.Caran Wilbanks is very professional and gave me her full attention. I signed my contract to sell my house for 1 year because I only wanted to work with her. She made helpful suggestions to help sell my house. In my opinion she made me feel very important. If I would have another chance to work with a realtor I would select her. Penny
    Larry gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    This is an agent that gets it done and makes the process as easy as it can be. My wife passed away and I needed to sell the house by another house and have an estate sale all in the month of August. Thanks Caran for going the extra mile to help me and even pushed the closing up before I left for Europe.
    Danny & Tara gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    In our experience buying real estate can be a painful process depending on the team you choose to work with on your journey. Working with Caran was amazing and refreshing. We never had to track her down to ask questions, never felt like we were a burden to her, never had to worry about anything. She was driven from day one to make our new purchase happen as fast as possible. The whole process was seamless and pain free. I would highly recommend Caran to anyone who is in the real estate market.
    Ransom gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran went over and beyond for her clients on the foreclosure we worked on together. She was always there to help assist us in getting to the next milestone each time in order to close on time. I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase or list a home.
    CRAIG. Curt gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran went above and beyond anything I could need or want. She showed me properties in 3 counties, miles and miles of driving, hours of her time spent finding me what I wanted, and worked with me from 4 states away to get me in a new home, in a new state, and a new time zone, and at a great price! I highly recommend her for her dedication and professionalism!

    Rena gave Caran 4 stars out of 5
    Enjoyed working with Caran in selling my deceased father's lake property. This was my first experience with any real estate agent. Caran was patient, kind, and very responsive to my requests. She listed the property on September 30, 2017, and our closing date was December 15, 2017. Overall, an excellent experience.
    James gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    I live in Minnesota and had a house to sell in Cropwell. I checked out realtors and I selected Caran. I needed some one to handle all of the details and be my boots on the ground. Caran willingly fulfilled all of my needs. Some repairs were needed before the sale of the home and Caran found contractors for me to work with so everything went very smoothly. Caran keep me abreast of all activities we needed to get done. Caran is a true professional with many years of experience. I highly recommend Caran. With Caran's help we priced the house right and got an offer after very few showings.

    Priscilla gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Have sold 2 houses with Caran and very satisfied on both occasions. She has a very even-keeled demeanor and was very helpful in the negotiating process when we wanted to take things too personally. She is very trustworthy and honest and we would recommend her without hesitation.
    Kyle gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Excellent. Caran stayed in touch with me during my real estate transaction and provided prompt assistance when needed. I was able to get an offer on my property the next day after she had placed signs on the property that I was selling. We closed immediately after one counter offer and I was very pleased. Could not have asked for any better service. Caran has always been top notch with both of my dealings with her when selling property. That really means a lot.
    Emily gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Karen was extremely helpful and knowledgable in assisting me with my real estate purchase. She made my experience stress free. She worked well with the other agent involved and allowed me to visit the home that I was purchasing multiple time to assess furniture placement.

    Marie gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    I have used Caran twice in selling my house. The first time was ten years ago. I had used another agency (which did not work) and tried selling my house myself. That did not work too well either when someone suggested Caran. I called her and she showed my house a lot, and I sold it soon after that. So when I wanted to sell my other house, of course, I called Caran. She sold it within three months. I would always recommend her.
    Ashley gave Caran 5 stars out of 5
    Caran is very professional and dedicated to what she can provide in customer satisfaction. She is always keeping you updated with changes in the market, looking for the best option for you and your needs and wants and never disappoints in her delivery. I couldn’t have been more satisfied with my experience. She is just so delightful to work with and I look forward to keeping my relationship with her for years to come! A++++ for sure!!
