Carroll and her husband, Bill, moved to Yoakum in 2002.

Their Realtor with Cornerstone Properties led them to a “love-at-first-sight” country home in Lavaca County that offered plenty of room for three old horses, four dogs, and a troublesome donkey!
She will tell you, “We adore this community and the people who live here. You can be as involved as you like, or just sit back and enjoy the lifestyle.
