    11/25/2014 - zhana kukova
    Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Silver Spring, MD.

    We lived into our condo for 8 years and we followed Carmen all this time and when it was time to sell and move to a house, we did not even think about any other agent. She knew the market, the area and our building very well. So, she gave us the information we needed to price to sell. She also gave us ideas on how to spruce up the condo and helped us find contractors to do that inexpensively but still very well. Carmen organized several open houses at the right time to allow people to more easily see the condo. She was available any time of the day to answer our questions. All in all we are very happy with the experience we had with Carmen selling our condo.  More Less

    11/14/2014 - Very Happy Client
    Sold a home in 2014.

    Carmen represented us in both selling our condo in downtown Silver Spring and purchasing a single family home. The level of professionalism exhibited by Carmen and her staff exceeded my expectations. They were always very prompt in addressing any questions, concerns, or issues that we had.

    One of the best benefits of using Carmen to sell our home was her vast knowledge of the local market. Her insight into what buyers were looking for helped us prepare our condo for sale and attract buyers. She used her expertise to help us get both top price and a very fast sale. We could not have been more pleased.

    I would recommend to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home to contact Carmen Fontecella and her team to expertly guide you through what can be a complicated process. You will be glad you did.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $750K in Rockville, MD.

    Carmen Fontecilla is by far the most wonderful real estate agent our family could ever have hoped for. She completely guided us through the process of selling our condo and buying our first house. We of course had dozens of questions and in the beginning felt overwhelmed by the extremely competitive nature of the home buying business in our area. Carmen helped us understand everything and when we found our dream home, she helped us brilliantly get the house even though we were competing against 5 other offers.

    We looked at over 50 homes and in each case, Carmen was super honest with us about whether or not she really thought it was a good home for our family. We never felt pressured into putting in an offer and when we found the right home, we really knew it was the right place.

    From the moment you meet Carmen, you can tell that she is incredibly busy...but, she always makes time for her clients and ALWAYS calls or texts you back almost immediately . I dont know how she does it all!

    Carmen is truly a gem. Even after we closed on both the condo and house, Carmen still stays in touch and even came by to give me her opinion on design choices when we started remodeling our home. She goes above and beyond and everyone would be lucky to work with her!
