Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $750K in Silver Spring, MD.

We wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the wonderful talents of Carmen Fontecilla. We have worked with Carmen for many years in the sale of two properties and the purchase of our current home. This is our third testimonial, as we wanted to truly express our thoughts of Carmen, not as a real estate agent, but Carmen as our friend. While we do not have any current real estate transactions with Carmen, we are still in touch with her after three years. She is always eager to help each of her clients in a very personal and professional manner. Carmen is very knowledgeable and dependable. She takes time out of her busy schedule to consult with her past clients about any concerns they may have about their home. She genuinely cares about each of her clients and does her very best to address their needs even after the real estate deal is done! As to her personality and charm, she always greets her clients in a very personably way that makes the homeowner feel very comfortable. As to her warmth and kindness, I’m always surprised with the yearly greeting cards, and /or her magazines informing each homeowner of the newest kitchen designs and trends on the market. It’s the extra special things and care that Carmen does, which makes her not only a successful agent, but most importantly, a wonderful human being. As to her unlimited generosity, I know she is always a phone call away, eager to lend a hand to help others in need. I do not know of any real estate agent that goes the extra mile after the sale is done! When you invest in the talents of Carmen Fontecilla, you are investing not only in a real estate agent, you are investing in a true friend. Thanks Carmen for all that you have done, and for all the efforts you continue to make, even after the sale of the home is complete!  More Less

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Silver Spring, MD.

Working with Carmen and her team was a thoroughly enjoyable and efficient process. Not only did I end up with a wonderful home that was exactly what I wanted and in my price range, I gained a friend and a home-owner watch dog. Carmen respected my limits, choices and requests. She was available from the early morning until the evening. My calls and emails were answered in a prompt and professional manner. Carmen's assistant, Heather Ness, created schedules and to-do lists to keep the whole team on track. Carmen empowered me in the sometimes scary process of buying a home. She always did her research on the homes we would tour and knew the neighborhoods I was interested in buying a house. It is rare to have have someone so knowledgeable and so personable in one attractive woman! Carmen connected with my young children, my parents and is still friends with my colleagues that recommended her. Her success in the real estate business has made her great connections in financing, inspection and repairs. She has style, taste, personality, and most of all, ambition with killer instinct. Carmen and her team are the people you want working to find you a perfect home!  More Less

Bought a Vacant Land home in 2014 in Shaw, Washington, DC.

Carmen was a delight to work with. After spending one afternoon with her, she knew exactly what I wanted and was able to help me find it. She knows all of the DC neighborhoods really well and has a great sense of where the market is going. Carmen patiently walked me through my contract and smartly negotiated some cash back for me for closing costs. As a first time homebuyer, it was so nice to have someone who is responsive and experienced to walk me through the process. I would strongly recommend Carmen to anyone looking in the DC area!  More Less
