Years before real estate became this huge, exciting part of her life, Carrie Courtney founded, developed, operated, and eventually sold two profitable businesses in Central Florida. That entrepreneurial spirit led to Carrie earning her real estate license in 2006. She soon became a top RE/MAX agent and recipient of multiple, coveted industry awards.
In 2012, Carrie and her husband, Dave launched their boutique-style brokerage: Changing Latitudes Real Estate & Property Management. As COVID closed the country in 2020, Carrie was chosen as a HomeLight Elite Agent, a new standard of excellence in real estate that recognizes agents ranked in the top 1% of their respective markets. This status remains a highly sought-after and rare achievement, even more so as Carrie was a founding member of this region´s Elite Agent launch group, an honor of its own.
Originally from Michigan, Carrie has lived in Central Florida for more than 30 years. No matter the project, Carrie is passionate about marketing and providing quality experiences for each one of her clients. Over the years, Carrie´s formed relationships with some of the most dependable, honest affiliates in the real estate industry. In combination with her persistent negotiating and problem-solving abilities, (one big reason why most of her business stems from repeat clients and personal referrals!), these relationships helped build Carrie into one of the top-producing agents in the market.
Carrie is very selective about her company's growth. Her agents are sometimes recruited pre-license and are chosen based on their self-motivation, willingness to learn, and passion to serve others. Having an innovative, quality team dedicated to serving clients with care, consideration, and knowledge is truly Carrie´s primary focus.
Carrie embodies customer service and believes it is her duty to deliver a client experience several levels higher than simply excellent service. It is not unusual for her clients to become good friends, which helps explain our Team motto: “Carrie Courtney & Company – where clients are like family – come join our family.”
When not hard at work, Carrie makes sure to enjoy the Florida lifestyle (living life just like a Jimmy Buffett song!) She loves traveling the Sunshine State and creating amazing memories with her best friend and husband, Dave, and their seven grown children.
