Carol Ann Cardella - a Profile

Carol Ann was born in Suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as a second-generation Italian and schooled there in liberal arts. Her father was a Master Chef, restauranteur, and seafood purveyor and broker. This is where and how Carol Ann became instilled, as a child, with her love of food preparation, in a family of chefs and fine restaurant owners and operators.

Later, Carol Ann moved to up-State Rochester, New York where her first son was born, and then 2 years later moved on to Cincinnati, Ohio where her second son was born. And there, while she raised her family, earning her reputation as an “Italian Mama”, she first became acquainted with the real estate development industry. Carol Ann obtained her real estate license and practiced in Cincinnati, Ohio while studying for her GRI at Ohio State in Columbus.

But in a few years, despite some success, it became apparent this was not the time to practice real estate brokerage because Carol Ann’s interests in business development, together with the application of her gifts in the arts, tugged at her, commanding her enthusiasm and growth.

Carol Ann’s first career began in the role of an advertising agency’s account executive and eventually as a consultant specializing in multi-family and single-family builders and developers operating nationally, but primarily in the Midwest, South, and Southeast.

Almost 30 years later, on the East Coast of Florida and in Southern Ohio, Carol Ann was developing large scale mixed-use Planned Unit Developments as President and CEO of a large development organization, a former consulting client of many years.

During this period, one of Carol Ann’s sons moved to Denver, Colorado and began a family. Exhausted and entertaining early retirement, the “East Coast Italian Mama” couldn’t resist buying a second home in Summit County, Colorado. After a few years, the second home became the primary home where Carol Ann was experiencing a renewal engaged in developing small scale projects in Frisco until the Great Recession.

This event forced her to relocate down to Jefferson County at the close of 2009 where she started her second career, finally practicing as a real estate broker, this time in Colorado. An entrepreneur at heart and a manager by experience, Carol Ann launched Real Estate in the Rockies, LLC at the close of 2011. The intention was to create a boutique real estate brokerage focused on empty-nesters and no-nesters, but not exclusively. She is, after all, innately an “Italian Mama” who gravitates to family and has been known to cook for her clients, adopted as extended family.

Carol Ann is in Denver Metro because her family is here. That’s what has brought and will continue to bring so many empty nesters to Colorado — FAMILY. And forever conversations about her family’s exciting Colorado adventures.
