Carol Whitley

32 years of experience have given Carol Whitley the skills and negotiation tactics necessary to best serve her clients and their individual real estate needs.

For over two decades, Carol has successfully identified key differentiating factors and innovating positioning strategies for diverse new product launches on behalf of prominent Fortune 500 corporations such as Nike, Lincoln Mercury, and Hewlett-Packard.

Originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Carol has been a resident of Santa Monica since 1999 and has also lived in Brentwood.

Clients appreciate Carol’s outstanding reputation for representing and protecting their needs. Sellers are impressed by Carol’s strong negotiation skills, award-winning sales and product-launch experience, and by her ability to boost a property’s selling power through her keen positioning and marketing expertise. Buyers understand that Carol always puts her clients’ best interests first, examining each purchase as if she were evaluating the property for her own portfolio

Carol’s interests and experiences outside of real estate run the gamut: she’s studied both acting and singing and is a certified yoga and spinning instructor. Additionally, Carol has continually given back to her community by producing comedy and theatre, co-founding a Real Estate Investment Club, and founding and leading several mentoring programs. Carol also enjoys skiing on both snow and water, watching movies, and spending time with her friends and family.

Clients benefit directly from the uniqueness of Carol’s career and experiences. Her sales and communications skills, attention to detail, financial expertise, and negotiating prowess combine to ensure successful and agreeable real estate transactions for her clients.
