Carolyn is one half of the McGowan/Joy Team at Brown Harris Stevens. Clients profit from her tireless work ethic, patient tenacity and rare ability to find a solution before there is a problem. The McGowan/Joy Team offers a “hands on” approach to representing Sellers with a strong emphasis on creativity and design and Buyers benefit from their skilled analysis and keen understanding of value.

Fluent in Portuguese as well as Spanish, Carolyn began her career at a Brazilian real estate firm learning the art of negotiation in two languages, then she quickly moved to open her own boutique firm, representing clients drawn to her business model of personal and intelligent guidance. In 2003 she joined Brown Harris Stevens, recognizing the firm’s superior resources, exclusive affiliations and global reach would enhance her ability to serve her growing client base. Dual licensed, Carolyn balances her time between New York and Westchester, where she is one-half of the Platinum Tishelman/Joy Team at Houlihan Lawrence, a member firm of the Leading Real Estate affiliate network along with Brown Harris Stevens. Her unique perspective and cross-market knowledge have served her clients well; she attributes much of her success to enduring relationships with agents from other markets.

Carolyn is a graduate of the University of Michigan -- Go Blue! She believes in giving back, supporting organizations from City Harvest and Meals on Wheels, to Amnesty International and Doctors Without Borders. She is exceptionally proud of her children: Julien, studying at Harvard’s Kennedy School after serving in the Peace Corps; Genevieve, working in sustainable development in London; and Philip, a drummer enrolled at the School of Jazz at the New School in New York City. Carolyn is an avid skier, tennis player and runner.
