Carol is a University of Alabama grad with a BS degree in Commerce. After college Carol joined her family's business and was active in management for several years. Carol resided in Mountain Brook, Alabama with her family. She became interested in Birmingham's Ballet and worked in fund raising events. After the family business went public and was later sold to an international company, Carol created & managed her Mountain Brook Interior Design Firm for several years. She fell in love with Florida while visiting her parents while they wintered in Key Biscayne, Florida. Florida became a second home to Carol for several years until she decided to make it her primary residence in 1989. A move to Hutchinson Island was her first introduction to real estate. Carol studied and received her sales licenses and started to work in luxury waterfront properties. While enjoying the beach and her real estate profession, she became restless and decided to look for more adventure. Carol preferred an Old Florida lifestyle of living rather than the hustle of the city but did not want to be to far from the city. Palm City had what she wanted and gave her Town and Country Living. Carol's real estate profession goes back to early 1993.
Carol became interested in an equestrian lifestyle in early 1996. She purchased farm land in Palm City Farms and, along with her husband, built an equestrian breeding farm for Warm bloods. After the construction of the equestrian farm, Carol acquired her Tennessee Broker's licenses and formed, Carol Barron-Cross Realty, in 2008. Carol continued her work in Florida Homes and Equestrian.Later she was asked to sell one of Palm Citys most pristine equestrian facilities, Quail Hollow Farms. She used her technology, negotiating and marketing skills to find the buyer for this large estate. In 2009, Carol brought her buyers to her sellers for a bilateral contract. This was Palm City's highest sale for the year. January of 2011, Carol became Owner/Broker of Sunflower Homes & Equestrian, LLC in Palm City. Before long Carol found herself into the upper percentage of sales in her area. Carol allows her heart to direct her in her real estate profession. She laughs about her style. "I am an open book. What you see is what you get". Hard smart work goes into her routine. She is constantly upgrading technology and moving with the rapid pace of change in the real estate business. Specializing in homes, country life, equestrian properties and beautiful waterfront properties just comes natural. "It takes one to know one." Equestrian living is a little different. The requirement are much different. Selling homes is a natural skill for Carol. Carol has been very fortunate to be recognized for her work in equestrian properties and home sales. She knows her business. "I love what I do. I do what I know best. I do not mind working extra. My success is my client's success. "I have a simple company theme. "I deal with people the way I would like those to deal with me." Good ethics and honesty is high on Carol's list. Find me on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin,
