We've worked with Carmen a number of times as a renter/buyer. Most recently, she helped us buy our first house in Rockville.
In all of our interactions with Carmen, she has been incredibly responsive--I can't imagine someone being more focussed on her clients. She worked very hard to help us get the house we wanted. She went so far as to be in regular communication with us even when vacationing with her family out of the country!
We had seen the house we ended up purchasing early in our visits to open house, before we started working with Carmen. Several months later, when we began looking seriously with Carmen, this was still on the market, at a reduced price that we thought we could afford.
At this point there was another low offer in that the sellers were considering; Carmen worked with us to quickly create a proposal that appealed to the sellers while protecting us--in a difficult market, we still ended up getting the house below asking price in a competitive bid situation.
Throughout the entire process, Carmen was there to make sure things moved smoothly. I couldn't imagine how much more difficult it would have been without her by our side.
We have and will continue to recommend Carmen to friends who are looking to buy a house. In this tough market for buyers, Carmen knows the tricks to help you get the house you want!
