We've done a total of 4 transactions with the help of Carolyn, the last one being a custom home build with all the problems associated with it. She was there with us every step of the way, at times changing her own plans and showing up with very little notice to make sure she was representing us and having our best interests protected. I think anyone should consider themselves lucky to have found her. A true gem.
Words can’t express how much my husband and I enjoyed working with Carolyn to find our home! Coming from out of state, we were a little lost and Carolyn went completely above and beyond to orient us to Nashville and guide us through the process. She made working from afar entirely seamless and we couldn’t have trusted anyone more. From start to finish, Carolyn was available and on top of EVERYTHING. She is an incredible realtor and human being— my only disappointment is that now we won’t be talking every day lol. We are so happy that Carolyn was recommended by my department and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell in Nashville without hesitation. Thank you!
To say Carolyn went above and beyond the call of duty to help us with some issues in our purchase of a house would be an understatement. On top of that, she is very knowledgeable about the Nashville neighborhoods, which we really appreciated as out-of-town buyers. It was a great experience working with Carolyn and I would recommend her to anyone buying in the Nashville market!
Carolyn recently helped us purchase our first home (woo!) and far exceeded our expectations in a realtor. She was communicative, honest, and a fountain of insight both about home buying & Nashville neighborhoods. When we were searching, she was able to quickly get us into houses to view in person. She had no issues seeing 5 or more houses in a day with us, and maintained angelic patience while we walked around and asked her any number of inane questions we could come up with. She really excelled during the most critical phase: the buying process. She's a smart negotiator & has no problem jumping into difficult conversations on your behalf. Regardless of what we thought of our own asks, her question was always the same: "What exactly is the best case outcome here in your mind?" She achieved the best case outcome every single time, and made it seem easy though I'm sure it wasn't. Even after the sale she has continued to check in and ensure everything is going well as we move in. We definitely feel lucky to have wound up with her, and would recommend her to anyone.
We cannot thank Carolyn enough for everything she did for us while finding a home in the Nashville area. She worked with us every step of the way even when we were out of state and out of the country. She took extra time to make sure we were comfortable with every decision. We are so happy to have worked with Carolyn and would recommend her to everyone!
We cannot recommend Carolyn highly enough. She has gone above and beyond on every step of the way. She truly understands the Nashville market and worked to match us to our perfect home. She helped us find the dream location for our family when we moved to Nashville 10 years ago. Recently when we had to relocate, she knew the best companies to get our house ready to sell, and it sold quickly - no doubt because of Carolyn’s excellent advice and service. We had to close remotely, and she facilitated the process to make it simple and stress-free. We are so grateful for her expertise and kindness. She’s truly a wonderful person and a fantastic realtor! Nashville is lucky to have her.

With a wealth of knowledge and experience, Carolyn was a lifesaver in navigating the tumultuous Nashville market: we could not have asked for a better experience. Professional, kind, and an advocate for her clients, Carolyn made the intense process of finding a home as seamless as possible. She really went to bat for us, and was truly masterful in handling negotiations. We will absolutely use her again, and could not recommend her enough.
We recently closed on our 3rd house with Carolyn as our partner. She has walked with us every step of the way over the past 14 years when we moved out of our starter apartment. Her knowledge of the Nashville market along with the home-selling and home-buying process has made each transaction a breeze. And don't let the warm smile fool you, she is not afraid to get in the trenches when negotiating for her clients.
Carolyn helped sell our home in Woodbine and during the building process of our new home in Lenox Village. She stuck with us through the troubles of building a new home with a smile and a laugh. I can't say enough about how wonderful it is to have a real estate agent on your side. We'll be back for the next one!
Couldn't recommend her more! Super reliable and helpful. 10/10.
Carolyn was great. Her knowledge of the Nashville area real estate market was apparent from our initial meeting. Carolyn listened to our requirements and preferences for a new house, and directed us only to houses which met (or could meet) our requirements and most of our preferences. Carolyn has a cheerful, honest, and direct personality, which makes her a joy to work with. As buyers from out of state, her quick responses via phone, email, and text were very important in keeping us informed and comfortable that things were on track during the purchase of our Franklin home. I highly recommend Carolyn to anyone wanting to buy or sell real estate in the Nashville area.
There are not enough positive words we could use to explain how fabulous Carolyn Akins is to work with as a realtor to not only sell a home but also to help you find that perfect home. We have purchased and sold multiple houses in Nashville and the surrounding areas, after using other agents prior to engaging Carolyn, we know we would never use anyone other than her moving forward. The amount of professionalism, attention to detail, knowledge of the areas and responsiveness is comparable to none.

I could not be more grateful for Carolyn! I was extremely nervous to be a first-time homebuyer but at our first meeting she calmed my nerves and then went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly. I’m not exactly sure of every minute of work that she put into helping me, but I know that when I had any questions or concerns, she was available and either had the answers I needed or immediately took steps to find them from the other realtor. After we had made an offer, I mentioned to someone that Carolyn was who I went with and they responded with letting me know how well she takes care of her clients; I already knew that I had made an excellent choice in choosing her but it was really nice to hear that she had such an awesome reputation! I’ve already recommended her to my friends who are looking to buy and will continue to do so =)
Carolyn put my trust back in hiring a realtor. Not only did she help us sell our home and get us exactly the amount we hoped for, but she helped us rent our home back from the buyer while our new home was being built. It takes a lot of patience to go through a 5 month process with a client and she made us feel comfortable and calm the entire way! If you're looking for someone who will answer your questions honestly, give input, and get you through the process of buying or selling (or both!) your home - I recommend Carolyn Akins! Her experience in the business shows.
Carolyn is by far the best realtor our firm has worked with. We have made several purchases through Carolyn. Not only is Carolyn an exceptional realtor but she is a great person who genuinely gets to know the client and the clients needs/wants. Carolyn is a long term resident with close ties to the Nashville community and has a lovely family.
Carolyn was great! She was prompt in getting back to us and accommodated us in anyway possible. Her online software is great for people on the go too. I strongly recommend her to anyone wanting to sell or buy a home. Great level of service and thoroughness.
My husband and I recently bought our first house in East Nashville with the help of Carolyn and could not be happier with our decision to work with her! We interviewed several realtors in the Nashville area but ultimately chose Carolyn due to personal recommendations, her attention to detail, her experience, and knowledge of Nashville real estate, and her upbeat personality (all of which were extremely apparent the first time we spoke with her). We were first time, out of state buyers and completely unfamiliar with the Nashville housing scene, as well as the process for how to actually go about buying a home. Carolyn walked us through the entire process and proved to be communicative, knowledgeable, professional, honest, and extremely competent as a realtor, not to mention, always available to answer any questions we had that came up. She is very client-centered – there was never any pressure to see or buy a home or make any decisions that were not in-line with what we wanted, and she was always willing to tour homes we were interested in (FaceTime tours were crucial as long-distance buyers), and give us her honest opinion. She had great instinct and advice - all of which we needed as first time home buyers in Nashville’s fast-paced market - and truly was a joy to work with. I can’t recommend her enough.
Carolyn helped us buy multiple properties and I would definitely use her again in the future. She was extremely well prepared and very professional. Would highly recommend!
Carolyn was outstanding. Very positive experience. Professional, reliable, awesome follow up and great client service. Would work with Carolyn again.
