Born and brought up on a farm in Pembrokeshire and with her family being one of the oldest in the County, Carol’s in-depth knowledge of the area, property market and people of West Wales is second to none.
Since she and Rayner returned to live in Pembrokeshire in 2004, Carol has spent 10 years running the West Wales office of The County Homesearch Company, one of the UK’s leading property housefinders and the principal homefinder for Channel 4’s popular TV programme, Location, Location, Location.
During this time she was proud to have won the Best Property Finder Wales Award in the Daily Mail Property Awards in 2007, 2008 and 2009, together with both the UK Property Finder of the Year and the International Property Finder of the Year Bloomberg Awards for 2010.

Having helped her to establish the business Rayner went on to manage a number of building developments and then act as the Sales Director of the West Wales office of Fine and Country Estate Agents for several years.
With the sale of The County Homesearch Company to American company, Dwellworks, Rayner and Carol felt the time was right to break out on their own and so founded West Wales Property Finders in the Autumn of 2014.
In 2015 Carol was invited to join the judging panel for the LSL Property Press Awards.
