CSC 34 Caroline Carter:  Leading Home Owners to Make Smart Moves While in Transition

CSC 34 Caroline Carter: Leading Home Owners to Make Smart Moves While in Transition

July 15, 2020
Watch Now:

Caroline Carter is founder and CEO of Done In a Day, a Washington, DC and Palm Beach, FL-based home transition and move management company that has helped more than 2,000 families prepare their houses to sell for top dollar and avoid the chaos and stress of moving. Regardless of price point, the home transition process is the same for everyone, and it is an emotional, financial and physical roller coaster.

Caroline’s reputation of being able to get the job done quickly, easily and with fiscal responsibility is hard-earned. After facing a divorce that upended her life and family home, Caroline - then a newly single mother of three - built her business from scratch over 15 years into one of the top real estate service providers in the Nation’s Capital. Her extensive experience with homeowners - at their most vulnerable - led Caroline to develop the Total Home Transition™ process.

Caroline is passionate about pointing out landmines and sharing her unique approach when assessing and redesigning a house to sell quickly and at top dollar while organizing and supervising the marathon of moving to help homeowners save both time and money.

In her first book, Smart Moves: How to Save Time and Money While Transitioning Your Home and Life, Caroline walks readers through her approach, sharing expert advice designed to empower homeowners as they make decisions regarding their largest financial asset. Preparing and designing a house to sell doesn’t have to break the bank. Empty, evaluate, execute is her decluttering method, and it is aimed at bringing in top dollar. Cleaning out is not only about joy with Caroline, it’s about money, too. Yours.

Her expertise was built through partnering with sellers and top-producing real estate agents in two of the most expensive and competitive markets in the country. She has worked with everyone from the Who’s Who in politics, business and the media to busy families making a major life change. 

Caroline is regularly invited to share her “Smart Moves” with a variety of audiences, including real estate agents seeking advice for clients, relocation providers, adults helping aging parents downsize, baby-boomers, empty-nesters and millennials wanting to right-size their lives.

A frequent guest on television, radio and podcast shows, Caroline is a sought-after expert for her pithy, practical advice, entertaining stories, and money-saving home design to sell and moving hacks. She has been featured in The Washington Post, The Washington Times, the Washingtonian, HGTV, Good Morning Washington, The Wall Street Journal, Real Estate Today, Realty Times, HerMoney with Jean Chatzky and numerous other podcasts. Caroline is a member of the Forbes Real Estate Council.

Caroline recently relocated to the Palm Beach, FL area after undergoing her own total home transition as her children finally left the nest. She recently packaged and sold her own house of the last 11 years in 8 days.
