Luxury Properties

Specialist: Luxury Properties

When choosing an agent to sell a high-end property, it ’s crucial to select someone who is familiar, comfortable and experienced in dealing with this sophisticated market and with sophisticated clients.


Carolann Clynes has extensive knowledge and experience in the highest levels of the Summit Area real estate market.  She has had numerous high-end listings in not only Summit but in nearby places like Short Hills, Tall Oaks, Countryside and others.  Many of these sales have been record-setting or “market-making” transactions, starting new trends in area property prices and thus creating a new local, high-end selling market.

The number of real estate agents and brokers who deal in this highly specialized market on a regular basis is very small; additionally, many listings and sales take place outside the “established” system and are not advertised or listed in the regional multiple listing service.  Whenever an agent has one of these “pocket” listings, he/she shares the information with only a handful of agents who he/she thinks may have potential buyers.  Carolann Clynes is invariably one of the agents other brokers call.  Being a member of this inner circle is invaluable.  It not only provides numerous strong sales leads, but also provides real knowledge about this highly specialized market that’s simply not available from any other source.  As a result of having relationships with every top-producing agent in the Summit Area, and of having access to the most up-to-date information on unpublicized sales, Carolann has exceptional knowledge of local real estate markets, particularly Summit.

I create for the buyer a vivid picture of home ownership.  I find out what the buyer’s needs are and help him visualize having the “dream.”

I ‘m familiar with a vast mental inventory of homes currently on the market, both comparable and not comparable, in terms of style, value and pricing.  I also know whether these homes need updating, so that the buyer clearly understands the value of the property compared to what else is currently available.

I carry in my head the past and present inventory of sold homes to share with the buyer so that he understands area trends, value and pricing.

I have thirty-five years experience and have seasoned negotiating skills that I use to protect and position you.  I can agree to compromise to get the job done without compromising your interests.

I have extensive experience in handling objections and smoothing over difficult situations.  My clients think I’m a strong advocate to put forward their interests.  I can be particularly careful in assessing the financial strength of the buyer and whether he can purchase without the need to sell other real estate first.

I have a solid reputation in the brokerage community of integrity, trustworthiness and fairness at all times.

I have a support team that always looks out for your best interests and will deliver outstanding customer service in all areas – including marketing, transaction updates and inspections.  My team and I operate from a position of always providing the necessary information to the cooperating Realtor at the same time using discretion to protect our client’s interests.


Fast, speed, moving, angling...results. Effort is for 12 year olds. You deliver results. That's the difference. That's what you're about Carolann. Love it.

Carolann managed to find a great buyer with great speed for an older house with less promising prospects. She had a team of great people to assist me with the clean-out of furniture and portable property. The sale went seamlessly. I highly recommend this realtor.

We could not have asked for a better agent than Carolann Clynes. She is extremely knowledgeable, particularly about the area we were looking in, professional, always diligently protected our interests, patient, and never pushy or overbearing. She is very personable and her warm personality made it a delight to work with her.

Selling in this market is a real challenge. Carolann is a go-getter that goes above and beyond to ensure her clients get the best deal.
