Her Philosophy: House = Home = Family = Lifestyle (a place where you grow)
She began my Real Estate career 19 years ago, after nine rewarding years in the retail banking industry. She enjoys the challenge of matching people to their homes and helping them through, what most people consider as, the biggest investment of their lives.
People often say Carol's strengths include vast experience, dependability, and a strong work ethic. Her academic background in design is a huge plus point for her clients as she can help prepare their house for sale or offer ideas for the new homes interior décor after purchase.
Her clients know that she can always be relied upon for great service and complete follow through.
Whats immediately apparent and endearing about her is her passion, humility, sense of humour, and limitless patience. A seasoned professional, she is accommodating and attentive to her clients' wants, needs and aspirations.
She has a genuine understanding of what is important to people. The buying/selling of a home can be stressful, but, in Carols mind, it should be your most enjoyable experience.
Helping people move forward on their real estate plan, is the first vital step toward fulfilling their dream lifestyle.
Carol is married to Alex Tong, a Mortgage Advisor for CIBC. His financial advice serves as a great resource for her clients. Carol and Alex share a son named Hugo and also have two rescued dogs, Sage (now 12 years old) and Bowser (who reached the rainbow bridge on Good Friday, 2018)
Carol is fluent in English, Cantonese and Mandarin which prove as a great asset in our diversified real estate market.
