Carol Swanson began her real estate career over 20 years ago working part time as an office manager for an agent. She always loved houses and decorating so after her last daughter was born, she decided to go to work as an assistant for Cecile Montgomery (who is now our very own agent here at Burt Ladner) and Paula White at William Rigg. She worked for them for 5 years before deciding to get her own license, in 2000, and the rest is history!
Carol always puts her clients first. Her favorite part about working in real estate is that whether you're a seasoned buyer, seller or a first-time buyer, she finds it so fulfilling to really know her clients and help them to achieve their goals.
Carol has several favorite neighborhoods in Fort Worth but the TCU/Westcliff area would have to be at the top of her list because she has lived there for over 15 years! She grew up in Fort Worth and that general area is home to her. Recently, she has become very fond of the Benbrook area, as it is a growing suburb and a fun little city with great housing and schools. She also loves Granbury because it has so much to do and there are many beautiful areas around the lake.
When Carol is not selling houses, she loves to eat out with friends and family and explore all the new growth in Fort Worth. She says, "it has changed so much since I was little and there are so many wonderful features about our beautiful city."
Carol has 2 cats; Pixie, who was rescued about 5 years ago as a tiny kitten and Rosie, who was rescued just last year after Christmas. Rosie follows her around like a puppy and is the sweetest most affectionate cat she has ever owned.
Vacation: Europe and/or North of South Carolina
Dessert: Strawberry Cake
Drink: Iced Tea
Things you didn't know
Carol used to run track and set the state record in the 100 yard dash when she was 12 years old.
A perfect date would be dinner at Ellerbee's and then off to the movies to see a romantic comedy.
We are thrilled to have Carol as part of the Burt Ladner family!
