Carri Wall

I have been in the real estate business for two years and I handle both residential sales and property management. After receiving my real estate license, I started out working part time and I learned many aspects of being a Realtor and a property manager with Weichert, Realtors- Mark Thomas Properties. Prior to becoming a Realtor, I worked for eighteen-plus years as a dental hygienist. I grew up in the dental world and started working with my dad in the summers when in high school. I was born and raised in a small rural town in Henderson, North Carolina. I met my husband in 2002, in Henderson, and we married in October of 2004. We have two boys, Carter (15), and Coleson (10). We have experienced various moves in the last ten years and these moves sparked my interest in real estate. I understand that the process of moving can be a very stressful time in life and I realized I would like to help people in this process. As a property manager it is much of the same, helping owners and tenants feel like they are heard and help resolve any issues that may arise. In my spare time I enjoy decorating, watching my boys play sports, coaching volleyball, and spending time with my family.
