About Me

 

 

   


Behind each of my "Sold" signs is an educated client.  I take the time to explain the details of each real estate transaction, ensuring my clients feel informed, valued and respected.  Together, we determine the best strategy to get you to the settlement table. 

From first-time homebuyers, to clients looking to sell and purchase their next home, I have the knowledge and experience to ensure your next transaction goes smoothly.  Over 98% of my business is referral based, many of whom were previous clients themselves.
 
As a native Delawarean and graduate of the University of Delaware, I have the area "know-how" to help you navigate the local market.  In addition to Delaware, I hold licenses in Pennsylvania and Maryland, ensuring that my clients have access to a wide-range of homes and locations.
 
I'm a proud supporter of Compassion International, Faithful Friends and The Blood Bank of DE.  Professionally, I hold the designations of CRS and e-Pro, distinctions held by less than 4% of all REALTORS nationally.
 
What is a CRS?
The Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) is the highest designation awarded to REALTORS in the residential sales field.  This designation recognizes professional accomplishments in both experience and education.

Since 1977, the Council of Residential Specialists has been conferring the CRS designation on agents who meet its stringent requirements.  There are currently only 34,000 active CRS designees nationally.

Realtors who receive the CRS designation have completed advanced courses and have demonstrated professional expertise in the field of residential real estate. 
Home buyers and sellers can be assured that CRS Designees:
-  Are specialists in helping clients maximize profits and   
   minimize costs when buying or selling a home

-  Subscribe to the Realtor Code of Ethics
-  Have access to the latest technology
-  Have exposure to superior educational opportunities
 
What is an e-Pro?
Only 4% of all Realtors hold the e-Pro certification which is offered exclusively through the National Association of Realtors.  Graduates of this course have the tools and expertise needed to provide superior quality and innovative, online-based real estate services.  This designation is specifically tailored to provide real estate professionals with the technology tools needed to assist consumers in the purchase or sale of a home. 

Customer Reviews

My agent, Betsi Carey, was very knowledgeable, courteous and professional.  She kept me apprised of all feedback from all showings, as well as updates with the sale of my home and even afterwards.  I would definitely recommend Betsi to anyone who is in the market for buying or selling their home.

I have utilized Betsi Carey's real estate services to sell 2 homes and to purchase 2 homes over the past 6 years.  Betsi has continued to be consistent in her professionalism, experience, legal understanding, dedication in looking out for the best opportunity for the customer and her personal touch to make the customer feel they are special and important.  I have appreciated working with Betsi and will continue to recommend her for future real-estate ventures.

Mrs. Carey was fantastic!  There was nothing else we could have asked from her.  As first-time home buyers we came into the process knowing nothing and Betsi walked us through every step of the way.  We have already recommended her to all of our friends who plan on looking for houses in the near future.

Betsi went above and beyond to look for a house that met my criteria of selection.  She knew exactly what I was looking for based on my requirements.  She made it very easy for me by explaining the process of searching and buying a home in detail.  She guided me through the whole process with ease and clarity, answering all my questions and making me aware of things I wouldn't have known otherwise.  A work of excellence!

Betsi was incredible.  She was always looking out for what was best for me.  She explained every detail and answered every question no matter how big or how small.  At one point I felt like she was part of my family and you know what, she is now!  If any of my family or friends are looking for a home, I will proudly recommend with high praise, Betsi Carey and Patterson-Schwartz.

Betsi is the best!  She was very patient during a long process and was incredibly thorough.  I felt she listened closely to ensure she understood our needs and gave us great advice / representation throughout the entire process.  As we approached closing day, she made sure everything and everyone was in order for a smooth closing.  You can tell she cares about her clients.

I know a few other agents at your company and I signed with this agent.  I would have picked her no matter what agency she worked for.  She did her homework.  A company is only as good as the people that work there.
Celeste C
 
Betsi Carey is absolutely amazing!  She is extremely friendly, honest, trustworthy and responsive.  She went above and beyond in this sale by resolving last minute issues the day to and of closing.

Several years ago my husband and I were looking at houses with a real estate agent. I do not remember who it was, but it was not Patterson Schwartz. The experience was not a pleasant one. We both felt rushed and pressured. Needless to say, when the time came for us to look at houses again, we were wary of working with a real estate agent again. Betsi changed our perception and our expectations entirely. She was always available and never once did she make us feel like we were wasting time. The entire process of looking for a house was an absolute joy. Neither my husband nor I can express fully how much we appreciate the time she spent with us. There is no way we would ever recommend any other agent. We can't thank her or Patterson Schwartz enough for helping us make our first home purchase. This first house is of particular importance to my husband, as it is the first home his family has owned. Betsi made the experience special, and words fail to express how grateful we are to her for that.

Betsi Carey was extremely helpful, professional and easy to work with.  She made the sale of my mother's house such a  pleasant experience.  I would highly recommend her to friends and family and would definitely use her in the future.  We have used Patterson-Schwartz for the sale of our past two homes but the agents did not compare to Betsi.  We are so glad she was recommended to us.  Thank you.

I would like to thank Betsi for all her expertise on selling my townhouse.  She did an outstanding job promoting the house in various marketing channels, provided accurate and timely updates when buyers were going through the house and provided valuable insight on what needed to be fixed to ensure the sale of the house.  She went above and beyond to provide contractors to help fix and repair several items in the house which made it easier for me.  Even with the struggling economy, Betsi remained positive and was determined to sell my home...I knew she was the right person to make it happen.  I have already referred her to a friend of mine and will continue to praise her hard work.  Thank you for doing an amazing job!

Betsi was very professional!

Although Betsi is a friend, I have to say that I was very impressed with the way she handled my business.  Betsi was very much on top of her game and didn't allow anything to slip past her.  I felt very secure knowing she was looking out for me.

We expected excellent service and received the same from Betsi!

Cannot say enough good things about Betsi Carey! She's caring, honest, hard working - she put me on her wing and I flew smoothly from the beginning of my house search to the end at settlement. Will highly recommend any of my friends, co-workers, etc. who are in search of an outstanding realtor. Thank you, Betsi, for a job well done!!!

We don't think there could be a more trustworthy person on your staff.  We made a dear friend in the process.  You should consider her golden.  We will work with Betsi as long as she is a REALTOR - there is no substitute for integrity.
Jeff and Alison

We would like to commend our our agent for going above and beyond the call of duty for us.  She was more than an agent - she's a dear friend!

It was a pleasure working with Betsi.  She made it possible to sell our home within 2 weeks because of her honest feedback.  She took pride in her job and she made it reflect in the appearance of the home she was selling.
