Caroline Watkins

This is probably the hardest thing for me to do, talk about myself. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE to talk. But I divert to talking more about finding home for clients, client needs and success stories from those efforts. Probably because I LOVE what I do!

However, I am a wife and mom to 2 beautiful daughters. Being an animal lover, we share our home/small farm with our 3 dogs, 2 horses, and 1 awesome barn cat. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, walks with our dogs, and hanging out at the beach during the summers. While I wish I could say I love going to gym, we will just say that continues to be my work in progress.

While my time in college was focused on property and land management and development, my years following college took me on a highly successful advertising and marketing path.

Today I am fortunate to be able to take foundation principles of development, combined with my marketing knowledge and apply it to working with clients for the best home buying or selling experience.

Many times I am ask why I am with a small company and not part of one of the big real estate companies in town? The best answer I can give is that I am not about titles or corporate logos. I am about working Smart…..and Hard! I am about educating myself in this ever changing market and asking when I don’t know. I am about good ethics and following the NC Real Estate Commission Guidelines. I am about sincerity and integrity.

So the only title I need is Caroline Watkins, Realtor, and a company that stands behind (and not in front) of me and my clients. My work ethic and tools that I have equipped myself rival many agents that I work alongside from larger companies.

have a great respect for all the real estate companies in this market, but I chose to call BlueCoast Realty my home.

Ashley & Josh

"Caroline Watkins was a complete joy to work with, she made me feel as though I was first, she returned all calls promptly, and emails. Extremely helpful in finding my new home, simply the best."

Ernest A.

"Buying our home with Caroline was great! Caroline was very patient with us; we must have looked at 25+ homes. She was willing to meet us at our convenience after work or on weekends to look at houses. Caroline went above and beyond to make sure we got all our repair requests met and to insure we were in the right house for our family. I would recommend Caroline to anyone looking for a home."

Morgan F.

"Thank you for all the extra effort in getting us settled in NC. You went overboard to help us find accommodations and storage, personally taking us under your wings. Making everything less complicated and always being patient and understanding. You were a blessing to us."

Nora & Ramsey

"Caroline recently helped me sell some commercial property I owned, she then helped me buy a patio home. Caroline works hard to find the best outcome for you in negotiations in selling and buying. She even managed to move up my closing date on my home when my circumstances changed. She stays in touch and responds promptly to phone calls and texts. I would highly recommend Caroline for your real estate needs. She is the best!"

Elizabeth C.

" Thank you!! I had been using a company that I dealt with while previously living here 3 years ago. But in the three years I have been looking, they did nothing to help. So I think you for your quick response and especially introducing us to Caroline!"

Charlene B.

"Caroline was the most thorough realtor we ever worked with. Every question or concern we had, you got the answers for us and we LOVE our house!"
