Bought a home in 2016 in Kennesaw, GA:

“We cannot even begin to explain how blessed we were to have had Carol Cowan as our buyers agent. We are the pickiest of buyers and her resolve and patience never ran out throughout our more than year long search for a house. Carol is absolutely on top of her game. Nearly instant responses to text messages and phone calls, she was always available to us, we don’t see how she does it! Carol has a keen eye for issues in homes, is always very transparent, will always inform you if she sees problems. We will always use Carol Cowan for all of our future real estate purchase/sales needs. We cannot say enough about how happy you will be to have Carol by your side throughout the process off purchasing your next home!”

Sold a Townhouse home in 2015 for approximately $125K in Acworth, GA:

“Carol did an awesome job selling my house. A short sale is a tedious process which she handled like the professional she is. If I had not moved out of state, I would definitely use her to purchase a new home.”

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $200K in Acworth, GA:

“Carol is everything you would want your real estate agent to be! It was a pleasure dealing with her and our special needs as we are out of town and purchasing this property in GA. A great go-between, between locations. We are still in touch with regard to little piddily things and she is still eager to help even tho the deal is done and over-with.”

Sold a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $300K in Kennesaw, GA:

“Dear friends,

We chose Ris and Carol for selling our home and we went under contract within 3 weeks of listing. Choosing Ris and Carol was one of the best decisions we made.

On the day prior to deciding for the agent, I checked again with the two top local agents who sold many homes in our neighborhood. And they still gave list price which was 25,000$ less than what Carol was confident to list our home for.

I have to tell that Carol and Ris did a lot of homework before deciding on price for our home, and that was the key to generate interests from potential buyers. Other agents were simply interested in selling our home quickly by listing it at lower price in the market. Ris and Carol did not force on doing unnecessary upgrades in home to make it easy for them to sell the home. I was open to some upgrades (about 2000$ worth), but they simply said it is totally not necessary. Such an honest thing, which saved bit of money for us.

We had about 8 showings during three weeks and got a very comparable offer at the end which we accepted. I was very impressed with their responsiveness even while they were on vacation. They amazed us at every step during the selling process. I sincerely recommenced them to all of you to take the benefit of their service.

Thanks and all the best.”

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Powder Springs, GA:

“Carol’s professionalism and expertise were tremendous assets in the purchase of my new home. Carol’s advice was straight forward and helpful in her assessments of the homes we visited, and I appreciated that. Carol was prompt in responding to my text messages, emails and phone calls. One would be hard pressed to find a better agent, if you are a buyer. I would highly recommend Carol as a great buyer’s agent. Thank you Carol!”

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $400K in Marietta, GA:

“I’m a first time home buyer and Carol was with me every step of the way. Carol was responsive and no matter what time of the day or night she was available….which really made a big difference. Carol’s knowledge and experience in real estate really made all the difference. Just to give an example….. my wife and I really fell in love with a particular house but the sellers were being difficult because they felt like their home was worth more than Fair Market Value. Carol’s negotiation skills and experience helped because she was able to put her skills to work which led to the sellers eventually coming down on the price of their home. I would highly recommend Carol as a Premier Agent in real estate transactions.”

Bought a home in 2014:

“Carol was very easy to work with. There was a time in our home buying experience that Carol was out of the state. This did not stop Carol from being 100% helpful in our home search. She operated from many states away as if she had never left. Carol facilitated home viewings without any delay. The team that Carol suggest during the home buying experience is also first class. I would highly recommend Carol for anyone looking to buy a home.”

Bought a home in 2014 in Lebanon, Woodstock, GA 30188:

“Ris and Carol Cowan are a delightful couple who helped my Mother find a perfect home to maintain independent living. It is wonderful when you find kind and supportive professionals these days!”

Sold a home in 2014 in Ruden, GA 30143:

“Carol found my late husband’s and my home in Jasper two years ago. After my hubby’s death this past August, all I wanted to do was to move to Acworth GA. I want to help save the depot in that darling town. So I called Carol and asked her to help me sell my home and find me a new home.

Carol is the kind of realtor who is there for you when you need that cool head and warm heart and believe me, I gave her all the emotions. She always made me feel that it would happen. When I sold the house in Jasper the first week and then two months later the buyer had to back out. So we had to put the house up for sale again and it seemed like forever, but eventually it sold and we moved toward closing. Oh my, what an ordeal it was jumping through the hoops for the mortgage lender. This was compounded by the fact that I did not have a fax machine or scanner, so I kept go up to my bank and my banker would fax the paperwork for the underwriter. Finally I closed on Dec. 30th and moved New Year’s Eve and right now, both my daughters and their families are at my new home in Acworth I really think another realtor would have dropped me early on. Carol stuck by me and I became confident that I would be able to achieve my goal of living in Acworth and helping to save the depot. My sincere thanks to Carol for her patience and caring and professionalism.”

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Acworth, GA:

“I worked with Ris, Carol’s husband and was delighted with the service provided. Ris stayed on top of things and was very thorough in explaining anything that I did not fully understand. He went above and beyond to negotiate not only the best price for me, but also to negotiate all needed repairs that I overlooked so that the house was move-in-ready for my Fiance and I. A huge plus for me was the fact that Ris went out of his way to consistently drop by the home once it was in contract to make sure everything was kept up with and all needed repairs were sufficient and on schedule. Very happy with my first home and the overall experience, due in large part to Ris and Carol. Would highly recommend. Thank you guys!!”

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Canton, GA:

“As first time homebuyers, we had a ton of questions. Carol was always willing to explain the process and what we could expect. She worked around our schedules to show homes, and was very receptive to our “wants” or dislikes about a particular home. She worked quickly to get a backup offer in place on a short sale that we had our hearts set on, and again when the original offer fell through and we were able close on the home we thought had gotten away. We are very happy with Carol’s services, and would recommend her to anyone without hesitation.”

Bought a home in 2013 in Rowland Spring, GA 30121:

“My wife and I have been looking for a new home for our expanding family for a long time. On a whim, I sent an email from Zillow to Carol about a property. She was very quick to respond and while that property and many others turned out not to be the “one” for us, she never gave up looking for our perfect place. We looked at several homes over a year, and learned a lot from our agent about the home buying process. Anytime of the day, any day of the week, we could get a quick response about any concerns we had. We when finally found our home, she negotiated an incredible deal for us. I would highly recommend Carol Cowan for any of your real estate needs.”

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 in Canton, GA:

“Carol helped my wife and I purchase our first home. She made the experience enjoyable and was a good source of knowledge for a first time homebuyer. She worked to find out just what qualities were most important to us in a home and found us a house that met all of our “must haves”! Carol was pleasant to work with and was very low pressure about making a sale. Her focus was always to make sure we were going to be happy with our decision, no matter how long or how many houses we needed to look at. I would definitely recommend her for first time home buyers like us!”

“If you are looking for someone who is attentive to every detail, then Carol Cowan is the realtor for you. We just closed on our new home in Jasper GA and this being our 13th home purchase, she was by far the most wonderful professional throughout the process. She was very knowledgeable about and responsive to the many humps that were a part of this process for us. Her positive attitude and encouraging words got us through the hard times, like the seller being so stubborn about sooooo many things. We were so happy with having Carol as our realtor and the professional manner in which she handle every challenge, it was so fun to have dinner with her and her hubby tonight to thank her for her dedication and service. The whole experience was so worth it, but Carol made it a joy. We ended up with the house we wanted and new friends. I take pleasure in recommending Carol as your realtor and wish her many years of great success!!!”

Bought a home in 2011 in Carns Mill, Talking Rock, GA 30175:

“Carol is awesome! Moving up here from south of Atlanta we really needed someone with the local knowledge to steer us towards our dream house (and away from the chicken houses). It took us a while to find that “perfect” combination of house and land, but she was great. She showed us so many properties and was always upbeat and encouraging. When we finally found the one, she negotiated the price down to an AMAZING price. Needless to say, we were ecstatic! We are now happily ensconced up here in the beautiful mountains and just love it!”

Bought a home in 2011 in Worley Crossroads, GA 30107:
