My Real Estate Career...

Currently serving Manatee and Sarasota Counties, I've been a licensed REALTOR® since 1981, previously on the Virginia side of the Washington DC area. I received my Broker's license in 1986, and co-owned a Re/Max franchise at one point in my career. The Northern Virginia Association of Realtors gave me the title of "Lifetime member, Top Producers". I also served on their Awards Committee and their Ethics Committee during my tenure in Virginia. I have taken numerous classes and attended seminars of nationally known speakers in Real Estate Marketing, Sales, Negotiation and Communication.

The designations which I've earned are GRI (Graduate REALTOR® Institute), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) and CRP (Certified Relocation Professional). The CRP designation is valued because very few agents have it and it is sponsored by the Employee Relocation Council. The most recent designation I've earned is e-PRO which is a community of highly skilled and continuously trained professionals who provide high quality and innovative online-based real estate services. Plus, it is particularly beneficial for relocating families. I am a member of the Manatee Chamber of Commerce.

Additionally, I was a mentor, informally, for other Weichert agents in my VA office. When the program became formalized, I was the Lead Mentor for 16 Mentors in our office of 120 agents. In 2005, I was inducted into the Weichert Hall of Fame. Candidates are chosen based on tenure, productivity and recognition from peers.

Your Relocation Expert...

I have realized a lifelong desire to return to my native state of Florida and practice Real Estate in the beautiful central Gulf Coast area. I selected Bradenton as my home and the highly respected local company, Re/Max, as my new real estate home. I will help you find the home of your dreams and promise to always provide all the information that you will need to make informed decisions. If you are selling your home I will expertly guide you through the entire process, always working to achieve your goals.

You can have the confidence to move forward under the guidance of a pro whose goal is to provide you with knowledgeable, personal and efficient service. It is my distinct pleasure to offer you a full range of services, before, during and after the sale.

Client Testimonials

Carol VanDoren has been providing our family realty services for close to two decades. During that period she has not only advised us on the purchase and/or sale of several homes, but she has been a true friend.

Carol’s strong business ethic and dedication to her client always made for a positive experience. Her advice was balanced, covered the issues and made decision making simple. And most important Carol always kept her client’s needs, desires and limitations in perspective.

Carol VanDoren is truly a one-of-a-kind realtor. She is the consummate realtor, a true friend, and a trusted advisor. All of which are rare to find in this very complex, highly competitive and particularly dynamic market called housing.

You will find no one more honest, forthright or dedicated. Buying or selling a home without Carol by your side means you didn’t buy the right home for the right price in the right area! It is that simple.  -  Mike and JoAnne Moe

But, with your help, the experience was way better than I've imagined. I've met numerous realtors and worked with many before, you are a pro and you are very special! "  Iris Pan
