Story of my life- balancing two jobs – Real Estate Agent and Mommy. Here I am feeding both babies on the way to a closing. Most contracts are negotiated while rationing goldfish to keep my toddler reasonably quiet. Showings involve opening the lockbox with one hand while holding a baby carrier in the other. My car is packed with a days worth of snacks for spur of the moment showing requests, the trunk holds a stroller and “For Sale” listing signs. Days revolve around emails and naptimes. It’s not always easy/pretty but I strive everyday to try and make it work. This is my story. This is me.
“Selling Homes and Momming Around the 904”

“When Closings Groove, the Car Seats Move!”- Caitlyn Hawkins
When I’m not selling gorgeous homes or taking advantage of all that North Florida has to offer, I enjoy seeing the world through my children’s eyes as we travel. Travel with kids IS possible and always an adventure. There are so many incredible places to visit directly from Jacksonville, stay tuned to see where!
If you give a girl a hammer…
I’d consider myself to be a very handy woman. My father was a master carpenter and Real Estate Investor, so I’ve had access to just about every tool under the sun since I was old enough to hold a hammer. When I was home alone as a child, I’d often take the furniture apart and put it back together (but please don’t tell my mother!). I use those skills acquired through the years to assist my customers make educated decisions when it comes to home repairs and maintenance, along with creating interesting projects in my own home.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
My Career offers me the privilege of viewing some of the most stunning homes in the country firsthand. This opportunity inspired me to become a RESA Certified Staging Advocate, and is why you will see a lot of Interior Design styles on Closings And Car Seats. I have become a purveyor of all things aesthetically pleasing and love to share them with all of you.
