Chad Carroll - Making Waves
From Luxury Mansions to Mega Yachts, Chad Carroll is Reeling in Record Deals and Living the Lifestyle He Sells
On any given day, you can find leading real estate broker Chad Carroll at his “second office” - a Sunseeker Manhattan 52, cruising through South Florida’s waterways. The founder of The Carroll Group at Compass has elevated the luxury home sales game by taking clients out on his yacht to see the latest multi-million-dollar waterfront listings and give them a taste of the Magic City.
“I am selling more than just a home, I’m selling a lifestyle. I want my clients to experience what South Florida is all about,” said Carroll. “Boating is a big part of my life and when I purchased my first boat in 2015, I naturally transitioned to taking clients out for the day to show them our amazing waterfront listings. Seeing South Florida from the water gives you a different perspective of what it would be like to really live here.”
This blend of work and play, combined with Carroll’s reputation for expert deal-making and a non-stop mentality, has set the top-ranked agent apart. With an impressive $400 Million in sales in 2021 alone, Carroll is breaking records and raising property values across the coast. His recent sale of a $29 Million Mediterranean mansion in the private gated community of Tahiti Beach shattered sales records for the area, and in Miami’s Bay Point neighborhood he achieved the highest price ever with the sale of a $17 Million modern new construction home – trophy properties sold within weeks.
South Florida is on fire, with a surge of high-net worth individuals from around the country moving their businesses and laying down roots here,” says Carroll. “This surge in relocation has been a long time coming. Tax benefits aside, there is no place better to live.”
More than a decade into his career, Carroll says the velocity in which deals are going under contract is something he has never seen before - and has made navigating deals more complex. From Miami Beach to Fort Lauderdale, Boca and Palm Beach, the increase in demand has created a shortage of inventory for luxury single family homes, and prices have skyrocketed.
“I have to work harder than ever before to match my clients with off-market deals and explore areas outside of where they initially thought they might purchase. We get calls every single day from buyers and agents asking for homes that aren’t listed yet. They come to us because my team is tapped into the market. If anyone is going to get you a deal, it’s us.”
Once they find their ideal waterfront property, luxury buyers are looking to accessorize with toys catering to their new lifestyle. The well-connected Carroll is leveraging his unrivaled experience, network and love for the water to broker mega yacht deals, including the recent sale of a $9 Million Riva Argo.
“I’m a connector and I have a deep understanding of what luxury buyers are looking for,” says Carroll. “I thrive on helping my clients and friends find the homes, and now boats, of their dreams.”
