She has received 11 Awards of Excellence from the Montgomery County Builders Association (MCBA) from the Montgomery County Builders Association including the 2016, 2017 and 2018 Award of Excellence for Outstanding New Home.

An article in Washington Life magazine featured a Bethesda Too home in its September 16, 2016, issue. The article included pictures of the spacious kitchen with two dishwashers and 48" Subzero refrigerator, the wife’s "to die for closet" with a wall for shoes, the "glam room" with hair washing station, and the family room.
Bethesda Magazine's May/June 2017 issue included an article on "Closet Control," noting that Carole's "company specializes in new-build homes with jumbo hers (and good size his) closets, usually with an island that has drawers and space to fold clothes. In women's closets, she includes vanity tables that have outlets and well-lit make up mirrors." The vanity table outlets are in a drawer in the vanity so a hair dryer or other appliance is easily accessible, yet hidden from view.
The Washington Post featured a Bethesda Too home as the "House of the Week," with the headline “Builder Brings Her Unique Style, Intuition to Bethesda Home.” The September 14, 2013, article described Carole as “one of the few women in the United States in home construction.” Click here for the article
Carole is actively involved in designing beautiful homes with superior construction and providing responsive after-purchase service to buyers. Typically, spending 6 to 8 months working with the architect at the beginning of each project, she is always looking to add luxury features and finishes while never losing sight of the importance of also making every aspect of the house functional for the owners. During the construction process she is onsite every day supervising the construction and improving on the design.
Carole provides buyers with unparalleled after-purchase service as indicated in the written comments of homeowners under “Testimonials.” Living within minutes of each house she builds, she is always available to meet with homeowners to answer their questions and offer assistance.
Concentrating on design, quality and value, Carole and her team of experienced craftsmen strive to make each home a masterpiece.
