Carole Laydon McElrath

Carole has been a Realtor since 2005 and thinks of her involvement in real estate as a way “to show a variety of homes and introduce families to New England culture.” A New Haven native, Carole's expertise is in homes of historic and architectural distinction.


A graduate of SCSU with a degree in Fine Arts and an undergraduate degree in education, Carole also completed graduate studies including UCONN Management, Fairfield University Training and Development, Yale School of Organization & Management, and UNH.


She was director of the Talking Books program  of the Library of Congress  Educational Services for the Blind and was Executive Director of Recording for the Blind of CT. Further, Carole served as a Department Head at the Easter Seals Rehab Center in Bridgeport coordinating education and corporate programs in the public and private sectors.


Carole's great grandfather lived in an historic Brownstone at Wooster Square, and thus, her love of historic homes began. She is co-founder of the Ward-Heitmann Museum & Foundation, dedicated to the preservation of West Haven's oldest surviving building. Carole was also instrumental in the preservation and restoration of the historic Benjamin Richards and Poli Houses in West Haven, along with many other historical homes in the  New Haven area for which she has received national recognition.


A resident of Hamden, Carole and her husband have a combination of 9 adult children which she affectionately refers to as the "Brady Bunch".
