My first showing was a series of misadventures involving a sick client, a GPS that died on a stretch of Texas farmland, and a stray dog that traumatized everyone involved. (Great story, not for now.) Suffice it to say I moved on, fueled by burnt office coffee and rookie chutzpah, to build my own brand and close more than double the national average for deals closed by agents in their first year.
Later I moved to Virginia Beach and became Marketing Coordinator for a real estate team. It wasn't long before other agents — struggling to find truly classy, modern branding with 1:1 support — started contacting me about my work. Meanwhile, I longed for life beyond the cubicle.
And BLUEPRINT was born.
I worked on my laptop out of our spare bedroom for months before taking the plunge to quit my 9-5 and make the studio my focus. I focused on a few key clients who put trust into my company and made sure not to let them down.
Along the way, I shared project stories on Instagram...and grew an audience quickly through the sharing. Organically, other Realtors (even whole brokerages) started to take notice of my high end style and strategic, lifestyle-driven approach to branding for this niche.
Things grew by leaps and bounds and today, not much has changed since those early months. My team and I still share project journeys closely with clients and each other. Working and reworking designs + content until we get it just right.
Now based in North Carolina with my engineer husband, Joe, I lead all client projects while managing my small-but-mighty BLUEPRINT team in a remote collaborative space.
When I'm not working hard for my clients? You'll find me obsessing over paint swatches for my home, clipping overpriced decor inspiration from West Elm, and running after my sweet baby girls, Olivia Rose and Naomi Grace.
As a Realtor, you do better and want better. You’re the agent with the good taste, the deeply rooted core values, the intolerance for low bars and poor reputations. It’s in your nature. Ours, too.
You’re in this for the long haul. For your family, your wealth-building, your community. Your brand can reflect something both modern and timeless, so you can look back with pride.
The human connection behind "marketing," the power of story, is where we all thrive. Our brands ditch the sales script, take a stand, and tell your real estate story the right way.
Presenting your business beautifully has never been more important. We help show you at your strongest, most strategic self in real estate, authentically beautiful across platforms. (Take that, industry stigmas.)
The work you do matters, so we're out to showcase your value. You CAN feel seen and honored at your best in real estate. You just need good brand listeners and creators who can articulate and celebrate your difference, your way.
We are designers. Writers. Consultants. Marketers. More than a team, we're the kind of friends who actually get what you do and how you do it.
We are boutique by choice — a small team doing big things — creating thoughtful, high end brands for brave Realtors looking to stand apart from the pack. From handcrafted branding to tailor-made content, we've leaned in deeply to the industry we most adore.
We believe in good listening, organized rule-breaking, impeccable presentation...and a splash of great wine (Riesling, please) + humor in just about everything.

"I am amazed at the attention to detail, the quality of the photos and the valuable content in each template. These resources have made my life so much easier. Caroline has thought of everything we need to put our best marketing foot forward."
- FATIMA AFTAB
"It's only been two days since purchasing and I've already customized and sent out three Buyer Offboarding Magazines and a Listing Proposal. Your designs are exquisite.
I can't wait to customize the rest!"
- GUY CHRISTIE
"FINALLY! Beautifully customizable templates that I'm proud to show off. Creating these types of marketing materials can take so long and usually gets pushed off my to-do list. These are high end, elevated designs that will work for any Realtor. Wish I had these when I first started in business!"
- GINA BOURNE
"I'm simply blown away once again. I was able to easily customize the templates using my own fonts, brand colors, and patterns, bringing it all to life. I already sent materials to my clients who are closing this week and immediately received wonderful feedback. WHOO HOO!"
- JANIE SCHMIDT
"My goodness. This is the most beautiful marketing suite ever! Something I've always wanted for my business...something that really captured MY brand aesthetic, but I was never able to properly present it. I can't tell you how excited and grateful I am."
- GIGI MALLAT
"Being able to offer such a polished first impression with a beautiful PDF has been key to converting new leads across all platforms. My clients give us so many compliments, and it's such a confidence-building touch point for even the most skeptical of clients."
- STEFANIE LUGO
"My brokerage offers pre-made presentations, but they feel like they're straight from the corporate office. Your templates are so personal and intentional. You've done 90% of the work, and all I have to do is make a few tweaks to personalize it and make sense for me and my clients. So the amount of time they've saved me is worth every penny.
"I am so looking forward to incorporating elements from my own brand into the templates, to make it really something that is distinctively 'me.' If I want to make the most of my business, my presentation is the core of what I do.
"These templates, just more polished and professional that I could ever accomplish, are giving me so much confidence. It's exactly what I need and as a busy single Mom, virtually learning two kids, and trying to provide excellence service to my clients...I could never accomplish this myself. Thank you!"
- KATY GALLOWAY
"Caroline is a force. I'm over the moon with the finished product. The value she's brought to my business is so much beauty. Can't say enough good things about the experience. Executing everything in print and on social media has been a breeze, too. I just keep getting compliments on everything she's created...can't stop thanking her."
- CARLO BUSTAMANTE
"When we saw Caroline's work, it struck a chord that we could do better. She and her team bridge the gap between graphic design and brand identity, making the process fun and collaborative. We felt like we were working on something much larger than a real estate logo. We were outlining the framework for who we are as a company."
- MARIELLE & BUDDY QUAID
"Before I met you, I had zero consistency in my business and wasn't proud of my content or marketing materials. Things are flowing so much better for me. ...I have been screaming through the rooftops now that I have my brand...everyone knows how much I have enjoyed working with you. The time and effort you put into your clients is immeasurable."
- JANIE SCHMIDT
"Caroline thinks beyond the logo. She starts at the very beginning to understand the 'why' and the 'who,' then crafts a truly unique brand strategy. Her work offers a level of detail, quality and personalization you won’t find anywhere else. With so many channels out there for Realtors, this brand identity has become my foundation, my filter."
- CHRISTINE DOUGLAS
"This branding experience inspired me to return to the heart of why I am a Realtor. Through the process, Caroline sussed out my values. She got my local roots and aesthetic, she pinpointed my joy and enthusiasm for clients. She valued my voice and brought it through in print and digital form. I can't recommend her highly enough."
- BETH SILVA
"Caroline struck me as someone that knew branding, knew real estate and knew exactly what she was doing.After going through the process with BLUEPRINT, I truly believe we have formed an identity that speaks to our brand history, our values and most importantly, to the target client we are looking to do business with."
- KATIE JO SCHMITZ
"When we saw your work, we knew you delivered something special and we just HAD to have you. You didn't have just one linear style or obvious aesthetic, but a variety of clientele...all elevated, cohesive, high end, attention-grabbing.
"We couldn't look away. And now, what you've delivered is truly exceptional. We so appreciated that you took the time to learn who we are, and with great detail delivered our story on point in imagery. The emotional reaction it evokes has truly been everything.
"You promised, and way overdelivered. In an industry that is saturated with the 'typical' and 'ordinary,' it was our mission to differentiate ourselves. With our new brand, we can deliver."
- SUSAN SINE
