Are you looking for a new home? Wondering how much yours is worth? Or are you hoping to move to a city where there’s a small town feel and mountain air? Make Carter & Roque Real Estate your first call. Carter & Roque is a full-service real estate and appraisal company dealing in both residential and commercial property located in beautiful and bustling Downtown Frostburg. They sell homes, do appraisals, provide property management for rentals, and more!
Donny and Meg opened the company in 2011 after working together at The Goodfellow Agency and have been running the business at 6 S. Broadway for two years. The company sprang from Donny and Meg’s mutual desire to run a business where the owners are known in the community and approachable, rather than at a faceless corporation. Meg explained, “We didn’t want to be part of a franchise where decisions were being made by people we didn’t know. Our employees and customers know us and our door is always open.”
The staff consists of realtors and owners, Donny Carter Jr. and Meg Roque, 14 other realtors, training and performance manager Diana Iman, and marketing coordinator Bethany Doyle. Six of the realtors regularly conduct appraisals as well.
During the past few years, the business has grown immensely. Carter & Roque realtors and appraisers cover areas of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia all the way to Morgantown. Their next step is to spread their business East to Washington and Frederick counties.
The owners and realtors at Carter & Roque are able to work with property owners and potential buyers in Allegany County because it’s their home and a place they are all passionate about. “Everyone in our office seems to be busy out in the community!” Meg stated. “From serving on City Council, or the FrostburgFirst Board of Directors, to coaching local sports teams and teaching Sunday School. We all love Frostburg and enjoy giving back to the community that gives us so much.”
Meg can’t imagine running their company and selling homes anywhere else. “We love that small town feel [of Frostburg] and the comfort of knowing your neighbor, but we also love the creativity and spirit of growth that you find in the local businesses and community.” As the Carter & Roque website states, “The mountains of Western Maryland are an ideal place to settle down.”
