My husband and I have had the pleasure of working with Carmen on two occasions. As a newly engaged couple and first-time home buyers in 2010, she helped us find our dream condo–a 2 bed/2 bath unit in North Bethesda–and made the home buying process truly enjoyable by educating us along the way. Five years, a dog, and an active toddler later, there was no question who we would call when ready to sell our condo and purchase a single family home for our growing family. Beyond Carmen’s profound knowledge of the real estate market, Carmen embodies professionalism at its core. She listens to and is respectful of her clients’ needs, wants, and capacities–and she does not waste anyone’s time. Carmen’s unparalleled energy and positive attitude allow her to work equally hard for all of her clients, regardless of her bottom line. Accessible when convenient for us, Carmen remarkably maintained the ability to make us feel as though we were her only client. As for specifics on our recent transactions, Carmen’s recommendations for listing and showing the condo led to multiple offers in just days, and we purchased our single family home following a thoughtful and fair negotiation. Carmen’s work does not go unnoticed. At the closing of our new home, the sellers themselves went out of their way to compliment her professionalism and proficiency. If we ever choose to move again, Carmen will certainly receive our call! In the meantime, we will continue to confidently refer Carmen to friends and colleagues, as there is no one better with whom to work.
