More about Carol

Since 1981, Carol Coe-Vokes has been a major player in the Cadillac real estate market. With her outgoing personality and unique style, she owns any room she enters. For Carol, sales was a natural choice, not just because she’s perfectly suited for the job, but also because she’s a Cadillac legacy “My parents owned Admiral’s Pet Shop in Cadillac,” said Carol. “So it was pretty natural for me to go into sales.”


Carol founded Advance Realty in 1981 in the midst of a booming Cadillac housing market, and it almost immediately became a family effort. “My husband, my brother, and one of my daughters were licensed agents during that period,” she said. “Sales were booming.”

Despite continued success, however, Carol has become a one woman show and points to her guiding principles and unique skill set as part of the recipe

I’ve been in sales for 37 years with continued referrals which speaks to my knowledge and integrity.” While loved by her customers, Carol has also been honored by her colleagues. Carol began the Women’s Council of Realtors’ Cadillac Chapter and was President for the first two years; also in 1987 Carol was named “Realtor of the Year” by her local Board of Realtors which was truly special.
