Carolyn Stromberg went into real estate because a local broker once told her, "you're friendly, outgoing, know lots of people - you should sell houses." That was 15 years ago, and she's still grateful for the suggestion. Her work has not only enabled Carolyn to meet many terrific people, but to help clients buy and sell wonderful homes in the market she has known and loved for decades. "I want to find the right property for my customers, and have the patience to work with them over time so they can feel confident of their decision," says Carolyn. "Yet if the situation requires a quicker move, I provide all the necessary information to `take the plunge' and be happy with their investment." Carolyn's main goal, first and foremost, is for her buyers and sellers to feel well informed, well guided, and treated kindly and honestly in all their dealings with her.
Aside from her incredible dedication, knowledge and loyal service, Carolyn is happy to introduce her customers to what they'd enjoy on Shelter Island. She makes sure renters are aware of all the goings-on during summer, the great children's programs offered, reliable babysitting lists and more. For buyers or sellers, she connects them with whomever they need to get whatever they need done to ensure a smooth closing process. A real enthusiast for the "hunt," Carolyn loves her work and thoroughly enjoys finding that dream home match for every customer. If it's out there, she will find it, and in the process really likes spending time with the people she represents. Carolyn finds just as much contentment working on beautiful Shelter Island, which she fell in love with on ferry rides she and her husband would take there every summer. "We came to the East End 30 years ago. While living in Manhattan, we bought an 1820's Captain's house in Sag Harbor, and one day 21 years ago, following up on a real estate ad, looked at a home on Menantic Creek, made an offer and listed the Sag Harbor house by 4:00 that day!"
The couple is still awestruck looking at the gorgeous sunsets from their back deck overlooking the water. They take as much pleasure in the island beaches, golf course and lovely people they continue to meet. Carolyn also loves flower arranging and spending every spare minute in her flower garden. She served as the past president of the garden club, plus has volunteered at the local school and library.
