Hi, my name is Carina Woolrich and I'm here to help you with all of your real estate needs. I'm licensed as a real estate broker in North Carolina and an associate broker in Georgia. I've worked as a commercial photographer since the 1980's, mostly in San Diego, CA. My husband and I left San Diego in 2004, moved to St Croix in the US Virgin Islands for a couple of years, then came to Hayesville, NC in 2006. We've decided to make this our permanent home, we love it here and so do our dogs!!!
My husband, Joe, and I have always enjoyed fishing, but our experience was limited to deep sea fishing and lake fishing. When we came here we took up fly fishing for trout. Wow!! I've never enjoyed fishing so much. It's the most peaceful thing to do, feeling all alone in such a beautiful environment, just you, the water, the trout, the blue heron, the geese, the ducks, and an occasional deer wading by.
Through the process of buying, refurbishing and selling our homes, I realized how much I enjoy real estate. After leaving the city, I finally found the time to get into real estate professionally. It seemed to make a lot of sense since photography is probably the most important part of marketing homes and land. I took it one step further and opened a real estate virtual tour company, Woolrich Photo Tours, but after getting busy with real estate I found I no longer had the time to photograph properties for other Realtors, but my listings still get the very best photography and virtual tours, updated on a regular basis.
I've been working full time as a Realtor now since 2010 and have received The Circle of Excellence Award every year since 2013. I have the experience behind me now but I haven't forgotten what it's like to be on your side of it. I try to look at all transactions from the client’s point of view as much as from the Realtors.
I specialize in Clay County NC and Towns County, GA including the communities of Hayesville, Brasstown, Warne, Shooting Creek, Hiawassee, Young Harris. I also work in Cherokee County NC and Union County GA, including the communities of Murphy and Blairsville, but my website gives you access to the MLS for 7 counties in 3 states. Please feel free to use it! My goal is to guide you through the process of buying a new home or selling the one you have, whether or not you're ready at this time.
