CARLOTTA MORRIS

Realtor®

I have 29 years experience helping families buy and sell homes in the Woodlands and surrounding area. I view the realtor experience as a partnership between my clients and myself to achieve the desired outcome smoothly and with a dash of fun thrown in. With extensive knowledge of The Woodlands, Conroe, Spring, Magnolia and Tomball plus surrounding areas I will work tirelessly on your behalf to make your next home buying or selling experience a pleasant and successful one.

When choosing your Realtor, extensive experience and knowledge of the community, strong negotiation skills, and a commitment to providing excellent service are all crucial elements.

For sellers, it is my commitment to sell your home or property in a timely fashion while helping you attain the highest possible price for your real estate. If you are interested in receiving a free home valuation or a consult on your home, contact me by phone or email. Preparing a home to go on the market is as important as setting the right price.

For buyers looking for homes or other real estate opportunities, I will work with you to find your ideal home. I will provide you with all of the necessary tools for finding the right property. From setting up a personal search for your specific criteria in a home, everything I can possibly provide will be at your service. In addition, once we've narrowed down what you are looking for, we can begin the home showing process so you can get a closer look at the homes that should be a good fit. I’ve spent 15 years selling new construction so I can add value to that as well, by understanding blueprints, frame walks, lot fits, etc. I am certified as a skilled negotiator so I take pride in providing you with the best price, whether it’s the sale of your current home or the purchase of the next.

Nothing excites me more than a successful real estate transaction. Making my clients happy is my #1 goal. I want to be your realtor! I want to earn the status of “Carlotta Morris is my realtor”.
