Professional Experience

California native Carolyn Shears moved to Charlottesville in 1985 after graduating from San Jose University. She has been active in commercial real estate since 1986 when she joined the Appraisal Group, Inc. as a commercial appraiser where she served as vice president. In 1993, she attained her MAI designation through the Appraisal Institute.

Carolyn made the transition into commercial brokerage when she joined Edward H. Brownfield Inc. in 1995.  Drawing on the expertise and knowledge gained during her 10 years as a real estate analyst and appraiser, she quickly achieved success as a leasing and sales specialist.

She joined CBRE | Charlottesville in September 2007 and continues to excel in brokerage services by helping businesses and nonprofits find suitable locations and thereby enhance their ability to achieve their missions.
