Get to Know Carolyn Upton

I was born in New York and have 40 first cousins!!  How's that for an opener??  I love Golf and being the champion at games like darts and pool.  I love Guitar Hero and my Sharpei mix, Max.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Dance from George Mason University and have performed on stage over a hundred times.  I'm that girl that passes you on the highway who is bopping around in her car singing and dancing as much as you can in a car while seat-belted in.  I have lived in Charlotte since '02 and have lived in NY, Apple Valley, MN, Miami, FL, Boston, MA, Houston, TX, and Myrtle Beach, SC.  Oh, and I lived in the DC Metro Area for 10 years during the High School and College years.  So, where does that leave me?  Charlotte!!  The BEST place to live!  Why?  From my experience, the people are nice, the weather is moderate, the beach is within a few hours, the mountains are too, and it is a GREAT place to be since it will grow and prosper!  Don't you agree??  ;)


Where do I start??  I guess selling Girl Scout Cookies??  So I've been in Sales for a while.  I started at Baskin Robbins scooping ice cream, worked in retail, waited tables, then started photographing and selling photos, oh, then the newspaper subscriptions, finally, the New Homes!!   I stumbled upon this business as I was always intrigued by Real Estate and thought I should probably buy a house.  This was back in 2002 when the builders didn't have enough sales people to cover their model sales centers.  I was given a key and was told to be a "rover."  After finding a different builder that actually wanted me to know what I was doing, and cared that I was trained and wanted me to succeed, I became an assistant with Westfield Homes (AKA Standard Pacific).  I worked in a number of their neighborhoods all over the Charlotte area.  Maybe you've met me at...  The Villages of Avonlea? Baucom Ridge? Riverbend? CallonWood? Glen Grove? Ridge Pointe? Whitley Mills? or Water's Edge PERHAPS??  Well, if not, that's ok, hopefully we'll be closing lots of deals together because now I work with the BEST RE/MAX team in Charlotte!!!  I am the newest Buyer's Specialist with Leigh Brown and Associates at RE/MAX Signature Properties!  I am so excited to be working with such an enthusiastic team!!  Leigh is phenomenal in every way and I can't wait to see what each day brings!!
