Courtney was born and raised on the Monterey Peninsula. She attended local schools Santa Catalina Lower School and Robert Louis Stevenson Upper School. She has always been surrounded by real estate as her mother, Stacey Golding, worked for the Mitchell Group (now Sotheby’s) and her husband is a commercial real estate agent.
Courtney attended Santa Clara University, graduating Cum Laude with a major in finance and a minor in art history. She then spent the next 8 years in San Francisco working as a finance and accounting recruiter for a nationwide firm, Kforce Professional Staffing. She was a top ten income producer, nationally.
Courtney moved back to the Monterey Peninsula in early 2007 and joined Sotheby’s International Realty. Her team ranked in the top 5% of Monterey Peninsula Sotheby’s International agents for 2009, and top 20% for 2008. In March of 2010, Courtney joined Carmel Realty. Since joining Carmel Realty, Courtney has sold $14.82M in sales. In 2010, she ranked in the top 4% among members of the Monterey County Association of Realtors and was also awarded the Who’s Who in Luxury Real Estate’s “Rookie of the Year.”
Courtney enjoys supporting the Monterey County SPCA and Monterey Bay Aquarium and she is a member of the Beach and Tennis Club in Pebble Beach. Courtney is enthusiastic about this area and proud to sell real estate in her home town. She believes her strengths lie not only in her knowledge of the Monterey Peninsula, but also in her dedication to her clients and her unwavering commitment to integrity.
“Courtney was a wonderful realtor to us…what makes her a good realtor is that she listens to her clients and goes the extra mile to find the right home for you. She went above and beyond…and is incredibly organized and detail oriented. Because of the strong skills she possesses, she made the purchase of our very first home as newlyweds a much easier and successful process. We would highly recommend Courtney to anyone searching for a home on the Monterey Peninsula.”

We highly recommend Courtney. She knows the area, is highly organized and did an excellent job finding and showing us homes that met our criteria. We live primarily on the East Coast, so our time on the Peninsula was limited. Courtney showed us 12 homes during our first two days and, by the fourth day, we placed a bid on the home that we now own. She gave us sound advice during the bidding process and continued to do her job effectively through closing. It is all too rare to find a realtor who is the full package, but we found that Courtney fits that bill.
