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!
We were looking for places to move to from Jacksonville, FL to Charlotte and had no idea where to begin. We happened upon Mike when we wanted to look at one of his listings. It wasn't for us, but we looked at more places with him and finally decided on building in a newer subdivision. Since we were out of town, he really saved us in keeping checks on the progress, hiring inspectors, you name it, he was there every step of the way. We'd HIGHLY recommend him to anyone as he's extremely knowledgeable and really a hands-on guy to work with.
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.
We had the pleasure of working with both Chris and Mike on the sale of our home and in buying our new home. We could not have asked for a better experience! Both of them were extremely knowledgeable and always had our best interests at heart. When it came to selling our house, Chris provided us with a tremendous amount of research of the comps in our area, a variety of marketing avenues and advocated on our behalf to get the best price we could for our house. Mike has been such a huge help in representing us in the purchase of our new construction home. He's been with us every step of the way asking questions we wouldn't have known to ask, scheduling inspections and even climbing on top of counters to help us when finding things needing to be repaired prior to closing. He's done a lot of work behind the scenes as well working with the builder to ensure we get what we want and things are done according to schedule. Both Chris and Mike were always in constant communication and there any time we had a question no matter day or night. We highly recommend them both to anyone looking to buy or sale a home. They are great people that you will enjoy working with!

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.
I lived in Colorado at the time. I sent out a search in April 2018 and was contacted by four realtors. I gave them all the same information and set them on the search. What I was doing was interviewing them for my upcoming move to NC. It was very apparent within a week that Mike was our realtor. With that being said, not only did he hear my request for a future home, but he in fact was listening well. I arrived in June and by this time had informed the other three prospective realtors that I had chosen Mike with Allen Tate. So he and I set out for our future dream home. We looked at approximately 30+ homes. Within 10 days we had found it.Mike is very personalable. He has great knowledge, gives advise and points out things that I would have never thought of. He is patient and has a great sense of humor. Mike is in my opinuon top notch in his field. I highly recommend him. In fact if I could by 100 houses I would choose him each and everytime.Thanks Mike for another job well done. Wishing the most sucdess to you!!If you are looking to purchase real estate, this is your guy!!!
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 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!!
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.
We hit the jackpot when we met Mike and Chris. We relocated our family from Canada and the Carlins not only made the process easy and efficient but also made it enjoyable and worry free. They worked diligently on our behalf to find the perfect home and provided us with advice and valuable information we needed to navigate this process in a new country. They are not only amazing realtors but also honest down to earth people and we are so thankful we had them in our corner.

Mike and Chris are the experience you want and need. They are efficient and knowledgable and will be there for you until the end. We couldn't be happier with our decision to hire The Carlins to sell our home. They pay particular attention to detail and cover all bases. You won't be disappointed.
Mike. Is. The. Man.

Mike and Chris are the best realtors we have had or have known anywhere. They are always helpful in a timely and very personal way. We had used to have doubts if the realtor we were using truly had our interest in mind, but such doubts never occurred to us when we were recently with Mike and Chris. We would recommend them to anyone we know. Thank you, Mike and Chris.

We LOVED having Mike Carlin as our realtor. He is very friendly, easy to work with, and knowledgeable about the homes in general. He offered to drive us around to many different properties and discussed with us great opportunities for our financial needs. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a real estate agent that is willing to go the extra mile and look out for human beings best interest. Mike is a great guy to have on your side!
Richard & Marjorie Gledhill
Mike Carlin came highly recommended from several previous clients. He is very professional and hard working. He has many resources he referred us to which helped us make decisions on how to make our purchase a dream home! He is knowledgable about the area and follows up on all concerns and questions. Thanks Mike
Mike Carlin was referred to me by a friend in January of 2016. I was relocating from Austin Tx to the Charlotte area When I first spoke with Mike my intentions were to locate a rental. Mike encouraged me to check into purchasing as opposed to renting. Mike facilitated the contact with a lender and I found out that i qualified to purchase a home. When i was informed what my price range would be Mike was diligent in keeping me updated on the availablility of homes not only in my price range but in my comfort level as well. He listened to my wants and needs and guided me from Texas up until i was able to come to the area and view homes. When i arrived in March with 36 hours to secure a home Mike had lined up a variety of homes for me to tour. Mike helped me keep my thoughts and reactions in check. After seeing many homes I finally walked in to "the place" that felt wonderful to me. I knew when i walked in the door. Mike then held my hand through the entire process of making the offer, negotiating and accepting the terms and conditions of the offer. Once the offer was in place we made contact throughout the inspections and I was even able to close from a distance so that I would not have to take time off of work. Mike has a great organization and a fabulous attention to detail and pride in what he does. I am very greatful for all that Mike and his team has provdided me in the 4 months that i have worked with him and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home.

We have not only used Mike's experience in buying our home in Mooresville, but in selling it four years later. He is professional and knowledgeable, returned calls and texts in a timely manner. We never felt like we were in the dark on anything. My son also used him in the purchase of his first home. A class act AND a nice guy.
He is trustworthy, honest, and has been a great help in our process of buying and selling. We would not consider anyone else but MIKE CARLIN.
Mike was outstanding in helping us buy a home in Mooresville. He followed through on every detail. Even after closing, he helped us with getting the floors refinished. We have bought 15 homes, and Mike is the best agent we have used.
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.
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.
Always goes out of his way. He helped me purchase my first home 10 years. When I decided to buy again, he was the first person I went too. Always helpful, has a referral for all your needs. I couldn't be more pleased. Mike is the best!
