About Carol DeFelice
    First and foremost let me say - I LOVE real estate. It became my passion when I began buying, fixing up, and flipping homes in my early 20's. In 2003, I decided to turn that passion into a career in real estate and began helping others to realize their dream. By 2004 I'd already been awarded the Circle of Excellence Award - Silver Level - and I was excited to be on my way to a highly successful career.

    My specialties include the marketing and sales of luxury waterfront properties in the Toms River and Brick NJ beach communities, 55 and older adult communities, and seasonal summer rental properties. Whether buying a first home, moving up, retiring and downsizing, or relocating, I have the knowledge and care to assist in all aspects of the real estate transaction process: working with attorneys, mortgage brokers and banks, inspection companies, home improvement companies, etc. I will guide and advise you during the entire process to ensure the smoothest transaction possible.

    Over the past several years, I have formed a team of 6 agents who I have mentored and motivated to be successful. This team further ensures that all aspects of your transaction will be as seamless as possible.

    If you ask my clients, they will tell you that I have patience, care, vast knowledge of the real estate market, the home sale process, and am a problem solver and confidante. I am also a supporter of the Children's Miracle Network - which means every time I sell a property, a portion of my commission is automatically sent to this organization which supports medical care for children in need. I truly love what I do, and I would love to do that for you as well!

Real Estate Awards
    Since I began my career in 2003, I'm proud to say I've been a consistent top-producing Realtor - achieving the Silver level of Circle of Excellence award in my first year. Quite an accomplishment for a new Realtor. Since 2004, I've consistently been within the top 5% of NJ agents every year. Here is a list of my awards:

    - NJAR® Circle of Excellence Sales Award®: 2003 - 2015
    - NJAR® Circle of Excellence Sales Award®: 2015 - Distinguished Sales Club (10 years of awards)

Personal Background
    Originally from Pittsburgh (go Steelers!), I moved to the Toms River NJ in my 20's. I've been a single mom throughout my real estate career raising two sons - adults now, and I could not be more proud of them. My daughters - in the form of adorable canines - are Bentley and Lucy. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking, entertaining family and friends, and of course spending time on or near the water - boating, beaching, and swimming. I work 7 days a week but love to travel when time allows (not often enough.) And sometimes... I just like to do absolutely nothing at all!
