Both Mike and Chris handled all aspects of the sale with extreme professionalism and I would not hesitate to recommend them to a friend or use their services myself. As an absentee owner, Mike coordinated several needed repairs and advanced his own money to pay for the work. He made numerous trips to the property to make sure all was well and communicated all of the details. Chris handled the four offers received in a logical and analytical manner. She took the time to discuss the pros and cons of each offer and helped me to achieve the highest sale price in the shortest time with the least amount of risk.I have been buying and selling residential and commercial property for over 40 years and have not found Realtors anywhere who are close to their expertise and professionalism. I hope that Allen Tate Realtors appreciates the gems they have in Mike and Chris Carlin!
Mike and Chris made things so easy, plus you will not work with anyone better than Chris. She is very detailed, organized, and kept me informed of each and every step. Mike was very pleasant and is detailed and works hard to learn details about the home. They made a great team and sold my home in 2 days. I was very, very happy.
We had the chance to work with both Chris and Mike on a rather complicated buy-sell transaction. Mike helped us with the purchase of a new home in a very tight sellers market and was able to get us a very good deal. Similarly, when it came to selling our old house, Chris was able to set us up for a successful sale on the very first day. They both bring decades of real estate experience, and the advice they gave on several occasions was really on point. On more than one occasion, their advice saved us from incurring additional expenses amounting to several thousand dollars. They really know and understand every strategy in the real estate process, and bring that expertise to the transaction. This was particularly helpful during the negotiation processes.
Chris and Mike Carlin are TOPS! I have known Chris for over twenty years and am a repeat customer of hers. She is professional, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market and how best to prepare your home to sell. She makes herself available any time you have questions or concerns and takes care of every last detail. Mike is great at offering practical solutions to any repair issues, and is also professional and friendly. I would not go to anyone else for my real estate needs - I just don’t think it gets any better than Chris and Mike.
Just a week ago, I sold my house through Chris, She explained well , when ever I have questions I can touched her got the quick response. I have very satisfaction....thanks...
Hands down best realtor ever. I worked with Chris to buy a house. Fast response times with email, phone calls, and text. She sets everything up for you for a streamlined buying process and explains everything so you understand what your options are. She is very trustworthy and I knew she had my best interest in mind. I will continue to recommend Chris Carlin to everyone I know.
We have worked with Mike for the purchase of two homes and with Chris for the sell of one. I can not say enough good things about them. They are both extremely knowledgeable and treat you like a part of their own family. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
From the moment we starting working with Chris and Mike Carlin, we knew we were working with best in class professionals. Mike helped us find the right house in the right neighborhood for the right price, but to be honest, while that is all that most people could want and need, Mike didn’t stop there. Mike has quite literally rolled up his sleeves to help in any way that could benefit us, prior, during, and even after the transaction was completed. Our expectations were far exceeded by his generous, knowledgeable, and friendly engagement. Mike drilled down to uncover our needs, both spoken and unspoken, to create the most positive experience possible. He maintained his availability to work with us and our schedules as we were relocating from out of state. He shared an expertise in multiple categories that proved to be invaluable. We cannot recommend this team enough to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Charlotte/Lake Norman area.
Mike and Chris are amazing! Mike will do anything from repairing a window screen to walking a piece of land in the rain. Chris is smart and just makes things work! I have worked with them in the sale of 2 houses and will use them again!

I loved working with Mike and Chris Carlin. Mike and I instantly became friends. He was someone I could trust and definitely served as a mentor. Since purchasing my home in 2014, Mike and I have stayed in contact and have remained friends. I feel like he had my best interest in mind the entire time and I have recommended him to both friends and family. When you are purchasing a new home, going through change, or doing something you don't normally do, you want to be in good hands and feel confident in your decisions. This is what you get if you work with the Carlins.
Mike and Chris are the bar for all real estate professionals. They went over and above to secure the sales of our house. As it can be an emotional time, they kept everything calm and supported us through the whole process. They are best in the Lake Norman areas without a doubt.
Chris represented us in the sale of our old home and Mike represented us in the purchase of our new home. Somehow, though, that statement doesn't seem to really sum up their service to their customers. They supported each other and us every step of the way during the entire process. Their knowledge of the area, their years of experience, their recommendations and help during the process of getting our house ready for market, their ability to ask the right questions and give honest and helpful feedback, all while maintaining a professional and calm demeanor - are qualities that you can't quantify, but have meant the world to us during these last few months! Moving can be a stressful time, but their warmth and responsiveness and "can do" attitudes made it seamless and as stress-free as possible. If you're looking for realtors with professionalism and humor, who always make you feel like you are the most important client to them, don't look any further than the Carlins. They truly are the best.
Mike and Chris are the best realtors we have ever had. We have sold 6 houses in Canada before relocating to Lake Norman and even though we had great realtors in the past we have never received the level of support, value and knowledge as we have from Mike and Chris. They have gone above and beyond, always held our best interest at heart and found us the most amazing home. They are simply the best realtors and and on top of that they are really great people too. They are honest , knowledgeable yet down to earth and passionate about their business and helping their clients. These people know their stuff!
Chris and Mike Carlin were way above our expectations! They get the job done! They are very friendly and easy to work with. Chris has a comprehensive marketing plan and brochure/booklet customized for your home. She communicates several times per week. Her suggestions created a successful sale in 4 days with multiple offers. They have necessary service providers lined up on short notice and can head off home problems in the sales process. Mike offered on site help and notary services. Thank you, excellent job!!
I really can’t say enough positive things about Chris. She was professional and on top of the process every step of the way. She listened to what we wanted and offered valuable guidance along the way. She works hard and knows the industry well.
Chris and Mike are really buttoned up and are well versed in the nuances of residential real estate. They gave clear guidance from start to finish. I highly recommend their buy and/or sell side services to everyone in the Charlotte metro area.
I had the pleasure of working with Mike and Chris with the sale of my home and purchase of a new one. Every step of the way, they were there for me and gave me sound information for both transactions. I honestly never knew if you had the right realtors, it could be this easy. They answered all my questions (I had many), Chris gave me comps that were relative to my home (incidentally - after closing, we set a high mark for a townhome in my neighborhood). I did not expect to get that much for my home, but Chris had a gut feeling! Mike spent countless hours with me at different new construction neighborhoods and let me know all about them. When it comes time to sell and buy again, I will definitely use Mike and Chris!
Chris Carlin has done a wonderful job selling our NorthStone home. She is well organized, creative and very pro-active in her approach to the overall sales process. Chris' attention to detail is amazing. Anyone who would like to deal with THE professional, here is the person.
Another Happy Home Seller
Now that the sale of my house is completed, I'd like to thank you again for all of your very professional help. Your advice on strategy and pricing was just what I needed. You never hurried or pressured me, and you did a good job of keeping me informed of any new developments.
Happy Home Seller
We so appreciate your marketing expertise, networking resources, and incredible negotiating skills.
Hampton Ridge Seller
Sandy and I would like to thank you very much for helping us sell our house in Huntersville. We both feel like you are the hardest working, most involved, most knowledgeable, and most effective real estate agent we have ever worked with.
Being both a buyer and a seller, I have worked with Chris over several real estate transactions. From a seller’s perspective, she seems to have her finger on the pulse of the real estate market because knows how to price a house to sell. I’ve listed two houses with Chris and both have gone under contract in less than a month. From a buyer’s perspective, she knows how to help negotiate a good deal. In both cases, she knows the contract process and will work with you every step of the way. She has always made herself available at times convenient to me even if it is just to answer a simple question. I put my trust in Chris for my real estate needs; time-after-time she has delivered. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
From the moment we met Chris, she was very professional in her approach to selling our home. She was the detail oriented and responsive agent that we wanted representing us when we listed our home. The Marketing Plan that Chris developed provided an awesome brochure for prospective buyers, and it was just what was needed to sell our home so quickly. Chris kept informed from day one until well after the closing so that we always knew what was happening. She provided her expertise to guide us through the sales process, and made it a very enjoyable experience.
I've known Chris for over 20 years and she is the only realtor for me. She is hard working, dilegent, very knowledgable, and very professional. She gave us tops on how to stage our house and it sold to the first ones to look at it. She took the stress out of this move and Craig and I are forever grateful! A big thank you to Mike too! Team Carlin rocks!!!
I always thought that Chris would do a great job since I have been receiving her newsletters thru the years. Chris brings a high caliber of professionalism at all times. Her preparedness and communication skills along with her marketing strategies and track record speak for themselves. The personal attention at all times and always making herself available to me demonstrates how she goes above and beyond to satisfy her clients. All realtors should take note of her style and process!
I have had the pleasure of working with Chris on two sells and a purchase. She is a true professional and was always looking out for my interests. She helped immensely with needed repairs on a home being sold while I was out of country. I highly recommend her to anyone in the market for an agent.
Awesome job all the way through process. Chris is very detailed orientated. She sold it for more $ than I thought we could get for house and made sure everything went smoothly and exactly. Also sold house in about 6 weeks including closing. WOW...Thank you Chris....
Our experience with Chris was terrific. She was very knowledgable about pricing, comps and the market for our area. Chris was able to connect us with contractors and each recommmendation was exceptional. I can't say enough positive things about how she handled the sale of our house! We are so glad that she was our realtor.
Chris is a very professional and is the best I've seen at what she does. I was very impress with how thorough and organized she was and we never had to worry about any part of the process during selling our house. She is a very dedicated real estate agent and I would highly recommend her to anyone. She will be our choice again when selling and buying our next home!
Harold & Louise
Chris went beyond the efforts of an average agent. Her attention to the details in listing our home was what got it sold. If there was anything we needed help with, from repairs to staging, Chris was able to direct us to the best in the Charlotte area. For a successful outcome, we would highly recommend Chris to anyone thinking about listing their home.
David and Danelle Higgins
Chris did an excellent job representing us selling our Lake Norman home. It was a rental property, and we live in south Charlotte. Chris made many excellent remodeling suggestions which we took. She then expertly marketed our house which generated many showings before we accepted an offer only 21 days after listing. During the remodeling and then a few corrective items following the inspection, she was a big help identifying and coordinating with vendors to perform the work. Chris was excellent with staying in regular contact with us. When there was a decision to be made she always provided her opinion about alternatives. We will certainly use Chris in the future.
Melvin and Lisa Taylor
Chris was great to work with, she took excellent photos of our home, she promoted our home very well. Our home sold in about twelve days so we are very happy with the results. She was always available for any questions we had. I will recommend Chris to anyone who is ready to sell their home. Thank you Chris for everything!
Chris is extremely knowledgeable and made the experience of selling a house a pleasure. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Steve & Deanna Wolz
Our experience with Chris Carlin was "10 stars" out of 5! We have used Chris twice now and won't even think about using another realtor should the situation present itself again. Both times, Chris has helped us sell our home rapidly. The first time was in a very sluggish market and our home sold at just below asking price in 3 weeks. The second time was a strong market and our condominium sold in 2 days -again, at near asking price. Chris is extremely professional, knowledgeable, thoughtful and detailed. She is a great listener and also has excellent ideas and suggestions from her wealth of experience. One of the things we most appreciate about Chris is her willingness to explain things in a clear, understandable manner. The process changes continually based on new laws and Chris is always up-to-date on those changes and able to explain them. She is very well networked within the real estate community as well as respected. We highly, highly recommend Chris.
Chris Carlin is probably one of the best agents in Charlotte and the surrounding areas. I'm sure her professionalism and knowledge of the real estate market are hard to match, always available, guides and advises expertly and will walk you through the process from start to finish. Chris sold my home promptly and above the asking price! What more can be said! She is simply the best, a very kind and savvy lady.
Dick & Linda McDonald
Chris did an excellent job selling our home. She is very professional and knowledgeable. Our home sold within a week at full list price. I would highly recommend The Carlin Group.
Mike & Kathy Sansone
Chris Carlin went above and beyond as our realtor! We used her to buy our home and then several years later to sell it. In both our transactions, Chris was extremely attentive, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. She really did an outstanding job for us and we would recommend her (and have!!) to all our friends and family looking for a realtor!
Jim and Bev Forrester
We could not have been more pleased with the decision we made to have Chris and Mike Carlin as the team to sell our home and help us to purchase a new home. We found that the years of experience they provided as successful realtors were evident in every aspect of this very daunting experience. We sold our home in record time and are totally pleased with our new home selection. We highly recommend the Carlin team to anyone! You will also be making an excellent decision by choosing to work with them.
Lanre & Olusola Ladipo
I really enjoying working with Chris Carlin during the time she represented us as our Agent in selling my house at 10529 Old Bridge Lane, Charlotte, NC 28269. She did everything within her power to make sure my house was sold as quickly as possible, despite all the challenges we encountered she never get frustrated that's what I really like about her. I will recommend Chris to any of my friends who are willing to sell their house.
Chris made such a positive impression on me when she worked with my realtor to help us buy our home in Claiborne Woods in 1997 that she was the first realtor I considered when I decided to downsize to a smaller home last fall. My first impression was spot on. I contacted Chris in the fall of 2015. She came prepared with a report about my home versus sales in our area. I've always heard you should contact at least 3 realtors but after my first meeting I felt I had honest and unbiased information. She did a walk through the house and pointed out what she thought would help to show the house the best, what needed updating and how to de-clutter. I appreciate that Chris did not pressure us to get the house on the market right away. She worked with us at our speed. Yet, you can count on Chris to always return calls and keep you current on what's transpiring with your sale. I've sold three homes in my life and my experience with Chris was by far the best one. She is the best!
I want to give a big shout out to my realtor, Chris Carlin. I chose her long before I was ever ready to put my house on the market. I read her newsletters and helpful tips throughout the years that she and her husband (also a Realtor) would send out to our community periodically so when the time came to put my house on the market, of course I called Chris. When we met I knew I had the right realtor because it was important to me that the realtor knew our community and was honest, helpful and cared about the client. Chris is friendly, personable and passionate about what she does and very knowledgeable about the industry and our area market. I think the key here for us was that Chris and I was more like a team for the common goal-sell my house. She gave great advice and because I trusted her and also agreed that was the right choice, it paid off tremendously. I also like that Chris was right there to answer any questions and she kept me informed every step of the way. The pictures she took for listing my house blew me away! I couldn't believe it was my house. I feel that I have been blessed over the years in working with Allen Tate realtors and since my former Allen Tate realtor retired years ago, I feel I made the right choice with choosing to work with Chris to sell my home, which sold in just days after being on the market with 5 offers. I want to wish Chris continued success and I will definitely refer her to my friends and family when needed in the future! Chris you rock!
Chris Carlin represented me with the sell of my third house and she was by far the best agent I have worked with. She was professional and knows the market. Also, she kept me informed of the process and answered my questions fully. She was attentive and dependable. She has a great personality and sincere. I highly recommend her!
Joe and Ann Bitel
Chris Carlin was very thorough, personable and made us feel reassured that we chose the right person for the sale of our home. She explained any and all questions and always with a smile. We would not hesitate to recommend her and we did choose to recommend her to our daughter. Thank you Chris for your dedication.
After interviewing 4 realtors, there was no doubt that Chris Carlin was my very best choice. She is extremely knowledgable of the marketplace and I trusted her very capable experience in her advice. Chris was there for me as the seller. The house showed to 18 people in 3 days and the final offer was very close to asking price. She was effective in every aspect of service and was available to answer many questions throughout the process. I would highly recommend Chris to others who are in the process of selling their home. Confidence in her attitude, her eagerness to assist in every way, and always moving forward toward the sale and closing of my home made me comfortable having chosen her to do the job. Above all, professional in every way
Chris is very knowledgeable of the market and knew what simple upgrades (lighting, etc...) to do before putting my house on the market.
Chris's advise is also very important to you and she also has a team available to help out when any issues may arise. My house sold in TWO days (28078) with multiple offers at full price and closed in 30 days.
Thanks Again Chris!
I had the pleasure of working with Chris as a buyers agent for one of her listings. Being a fairly new agent, there is plenty I've yet to learn but Chris was amazing working with me throughout this process. She was a wealth of knowledge and always available to answer questions for me and my clients about the property. It's not often you run into an agent with such a professional and sunny demeanor. Moving forward, I know if I EVER have Chris as an agent on the other end of a deal, it will go smoothly, professional, and be a pleasant experience!
Walt, Doreen and Ellie
Chris, Thank you for all you did for us over the last year in helping us both sell and buy our homes. Your help and advice was priceless and we could never truly express how grateful we are for all the time and effort you put in for us. You are truly a blessing to us.
Rich and Cindy
My wife and I have been acquainted with Chris Carlin for many years, and have been through the purchase and sale of three different homes with her. Chris is extremely knowledgeable, offers great, sound advice, and consistently gets the job accomplished with exceptional results! We trust Chris implicitly and have the utmost confidence in her abilities. We will continue to choose Chris to represent us in any future home transactions. If you want the best in expertise and knowledge, this is the real estate professional you need on your side!!
Robert and Doris Anderson
The selling of our house went very well and faster than expected. Chris did a wonderful job marketing our house and keeping us informed throughout the sale.
Five Stars!!!! Chris helped me sale my father’s home and the home I grew up in after he passed away in June. With the house in Charlotte and me in Atlanta, I knew this would be very difficult. Chris made the many adventures this sale took so easy. Chris is so professional, compassionate, and a very experienced realtor. I would highly recommend her as a very confident and knowledgeable realtor.
I highly recommend Chris and Mike Carlin of The Carlin Group! They are so knowledgeable of the housing market, professional and ethical, easy to work with and very personable. They took great care of me and walked me through the house buying/selling process.
Chris is a tried and true professional and a pleasure to work with. She was our seller’s agent and handled every little detail with excellent judgement. She’s very savvy and has an intrinsic sense of fairness so we trusted and appreciated her recommendations and guidance. She’s also very detail oriented and proactive. She has a lifetime of relationships in the area, which came in very handy during the sale process. I wish we still lived in North Carolina so we could keep working with her!!
Working with Chris Carlin was a pleasure! Chris helped us through every step of the home-selling process, making the the entire experience "drama-free" and uncomplicated. Chris is professional, honest, and industrious. I highly recommend Chris to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.
Chris was professional, thorough and very responsive. I would definitely work with her again and refer her to others.
Jack and Bobbie Penninger
Selling our home after 26 years, Chris confirmed we had selected the right agent following our first meeting. She came well prepared providing us with comprehensive information about the Carlin Group at Allen Tate Realtors. Her presentation was thorough providing the latest in comps, marketing materials, and guidelines for deciding on a list price. Chris leads you through the process step by step. To say she is detailed in her communications is an understatement. No matter day or night, we felt she was available to answer any questions or provide guidance. We truly felt Chris had our (the seller's) best interest at heart by supplying clear explanations which aided us in accepting the "best" offer.
I just experienced possibly the very best customer service of all time. I am so impressed! What a remarkable person Chris Carlin at Allen Tate Realtors Charlotte NC. Chris is very knowledgeable of the areas in Charlotte, extremely professional and attentive to the sale of my home and what the market value was in the area. She was extremely accessible and helpful if I had any questions or concerns. I was very happy with her services and would definitely recommend Chris to anyone who's looking to sell or purchase a home. Thank you Chris.
Jim and Kathy Roush
Chris was awesome and really covered every angle in getting our house sold. We moved to Oregon so not only did she aggressively market the property but she also handled getting repairs done identified during due diligence. Moving across country is stressful enough but at least I knew Chris was there to handle that side of it. She is a great negotiator and provided really valuable advise and support. Thanks Chris!!
Jim and Dawn Roth
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Chris. We have never had a realtor work so hard to sell a house for us. Her marketing skills are incomparable. We will definitely call her when we are ready to sell our rental property.
Joe and Barbara
Chris did an awesome job helping us purchase our dream home for our family. She went above and beyond in my opinion. Chris had brought light bulbs to test if there was an electrical issue or just burned out bulbs. She also went to the house and hauled away debris the seller was supposed to have hauled away and didn't and she did this without me asking. She helped with a plumbing concern and even purchased the part needed with her own money. Chris has to be one of the most honest people I know. I can tell she takes pride in her work and she really listens and cares about her clients. I will be hiring Chris shortly to help me sell my current home once we move into our new home. If you are looking for someone who will work hard, honest and really listen to what you want and need, then Chris is your person.
Patti and Charlie Ganci
Our niece recommended Chris to us. We are so grateful. Chris was prompt, professional and went above and beyond her responsibility to assist us in the selling process. She was
always available to answer our questions and address our concerns. We definitely would use her services again and highly recommend her. Thank you Chris for making our experience a great one.
Mike and Chris are excellent partners for buying and selling the home. I bought my first home with Mike - I was on vacation when we finalized the deal. I had to do nothing and Mike took care of it. 8 years later, I decided to sell my home and I had no hesitation to call on Mike and Chris. Mike made extremely valuable suggestions about upkeeping the property. We more than recovered the amount invested - the house sold at list price, in less than a week. Chris has been phenomenal in sorting through all offers, dealing with relocation company. She reminded me at right time for things to be done by seller. She followed up with relocation company regularly. All of it went smoothly. My only regret is - we moved to Texas and I can no longer have them as my realtors.
I want to let you know that your sage advice and hands-on approach were exactly what Catrina and I needed. For all that you did, I’m deeply grateful.
This was our second home we sold with Chris and both experiences were top-notch. We highly recommend her in the buying or selling of your home. She is an award-winning industry vet who is extremely knowledgeable about not only the industry but the local market. We used Chris to sell my mom's home this year and then I hired her again to sell my personal home. Her first email that contained the market analysis of my neighborhood and the surrounding area was extremely thorough, blew me away, and sealed the deal. You will have a smooth experience beginning to closing with Chris!
You are a selling Superstar and we are lucky to have you as our agent. Thanks.
Chris Carlin came highly recommended to me and indeed, she rates 5 stars for professionalism, knowledge, integrity and caring! She understands the current housing market and what the #'s mean in your particular situation. She also comprehends your needs and goals because buying or selling a home can also be an emotional adventure and she personally is with you each step of the process. So, if you are ready to select a realtor, do yourself a favor and call Chris!
