About Cara

Originally from Pennsylvania, Cara has been living in Charlotte since 1998 and began selling Real Estate with Helen Adams Realty in 2004.  Cara’s professional underwriting background with a top insurance company provided her the necessary skills for successful negotiations, proven marketing techniques and superior service which helped to launch her real estate career.  She earned the prestigious Rookie of the Year Award for her sales volume in 2004 and quickly became a successful agent within the company.


Cara has assisted buyers and sellers with local moves as well as relocation in and out of the Charlotte area. She has a background in both old and new construction, condos and single family homes, working with developers and representing clients throughout the Charlotte region including South Carolina. 


Currently a resident of the South Park area, Cara has previously lived in Dilworth, Plaza Midwood, Uptown, Myers Park and South Charlotte.  She enjoys running on our beautiful streets in her free time as well as a variety of outdoor activities, yoga and volunteering in the community.  After selling real estate for over 12 years, Cara now acts as Broker-In-Charge for our Randolph Road office.

Cara Shields made every effort to clearly understand our needs and was very patient throughout the buying process. Once under contract she was thorough and helpful with all the details which insured a smooth closing.
