Carmen was amazing to work with from the first contact until the moment of closing. My husband and I were on a tight timeline to find a place and Carmen got that immediately and shared our sense of urgency. When we were discouraged she kept us going. The neighborhoods that we had initially identified didn't have the right places for us but Carmen encouraged us to look further afield and we ended up in the perfect place. The Seattle housing market can be tough. I recommend Carmen as the person to help you navigate it.

A true professional who is highly organized, and detailed in her process. Carmen has great local knowledge, and an ability to truly "listen" to what you are asking for in terms of buying your dream home. She is able to comprehend your request (in my case, she knew what I was looking for, better than I could explain in words), and then delivers a set of homes for you to consider. If it doesn't work out, she will continue to refine the search based on your input, and produce another set of homes to check out. Carmen is one of the most patient professionals that I've ever worked with (in any industry). She has a great "can do" attitude, and works with you as a trusted advisor for real estate needs.

With Carmen you will learn about neighborhood history, annual events, the good and the bad at the neighborhood level, as well as a deep dive on a homes history that you may be interested in pursuing.

Why am I so excited to tell you about Carmen? It's simple really, she saved me about $50,000 off list price! This is in addition to the outstanding customer service approach which I received both before AND after the transaction. An example of this is her follow up call with me and my wife. Our kitchen cook top broke shortly after closing, and she personally called the warranty company (she personally paid for a home warranty out of her pocket for our home appliances due to a unique circumstance) and had them come service the appliance! Who does that, after they've completed their transaction?!

Again, a true professional, with a lot of patience, and great ability to zero in on what you are looking for. I highly recommend her.

Best hunting,

Mike

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Arbor Heights, Seattle, WA.
My husband and I felt very lucky to have come across Carmen Gayton, and have her help us find our first house. We were very new to the process, and needed a lot of educating. She was extremely knowledgeable of the whole process, and very patient in answering all of our questions. She worked day and night to help us find a home, and when we found the one for us, worked tirelessly to help us acquire it. There were a few bumps in the road, yet throughout it all she kept our spirits high, and expectations realistic. In the end, we were able to purchase our dream home - a feat that looked impossible at times, and might have been without Carmen! Her professionalism and expertise are second to none, and we still greatly appreciate all she accomplished for us.

I cannot say enough about how wonderful Carmen Gayton was as an agent. My wife and I were first time home buyers and had to explore a number of finance options to get into our first home. Not only did Carmen patiently work with us through the process, but she found the perfect house for us that fit our price range and was beyond what we could have hoped for.

After our offer was accepted by the seller, our loan fell through (not her fault, an inexcusable error on the part of our loan broker). Just when we thought we were going to lose the house we had fallen in love with, Carmen came to our rescue. She calmed the seller's frustrations, and convinced him to give us a chance to secure a loan through a different company. After getting a new loan company, we were able to get the house. None of that could have happened without Carmen's calming influence and incredible knowledge of the industry.

If you are looking for a real estate agent, Carmen Gayton is definitely someone you should consider. She is a skilled professional with a compassionate heart. She is completely worthy of trust and has made us clients for life.

I will certainly go to her for future buying and selling needs and will recommend her to my friends and family.

Carmen was a amazing resource. She helped my wife and I find our first home. She was extremely helpful and patient. She walked us through the home buying process from beginning to end. I recommend Carmen to everybody. When my wife and I ever decide to sell our home, we will certainly use Carmen and her office.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Sammamish, WA.
My husband read about Carmen on Zillow and we gave her a call - what a wonderful decision! We met Carmen on a Wednesday and we put in an offer on a house that following Saturday. Carmen listened to what we were looking for, provided a number of options for us in our new home purchase and then rearranged her schedule to take us to look for homes on Thursday and Friday. Once we decided on a property she really represented us well, following up with the seller and making sure that our best interests were included in the negotiation (even asking for more than what we thought was possible!). I highly recommend Carmen to anyone buying a home in the Seattle area.

We reached out to Carmen after a short sale had fallen through and we were on a tight timeline. My wife was 9 months pregnant and Carmen worked around our schedule to find us a great home. She showed us several homes in different locations pointing out obvious flaws and cover ups and guiding us to ultimately what would become our home. She looks out for you and that's something I can't say for other agents I have worked with. Carmen is great and I will recommend her to anybody I talk to.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Leschi, Seattle, WA.
We view Carmen as our 'team leader' in getting our house sold. She provided guidance and advice based on her experience and expertise. She included details and offered opinions but supported our decisions throughout the process. Carmen is personable & compassionate while always responsive & professional. Keeping us informed and 'calm' even during the most anxious times. I especially appreciated her online saavy & 'showingsuite'. We would look to Carmen for future needs and recommend her highly!

Bought a home in 2013.
Carmen was an amazing person to help me navigate my first home-buying experience. She went above and beyond what I would expect from a real estate agent, from picking me up from the airport when I flew in to look at houses and then dropping me off at the place I was staying, to picking up my keys for me once the house was purchased and letting the carpet cleaner in before I moved to Seattle. It was a stressful experience to purchase a home while being out of town for almost all of the process, but Carmen was patient, understanding, and did everything she could do to make my move to Seattle and my home purchase the smoothest possible. She is also a great negotiator but does so in a respectful manner. I highly recommend Carmen to anyone who is looking to buy or sell. She knows what she's doing and makes the how experience as pleasant as possible!

Carmen Gayton is a superb realtor. Her professionalism and expertise were vital in the relocation of our family to Seattle from Washington DC and our decision to purchase our first house. She was easy to reach and communicate with, even from the East Coast. Four months prior to our move, we came to Seattle for a week to look for a place to live. We did not know the area and had many questions on the different neighborhoods around the city. Carmen was very patient with us, showed us around and gave us a tour of the greater Seattle area. She was very responsive to our desires, gave sound recommendations, didn't let us rush in to anything, and helped us find our ideal home. Not only did she help us find our home, even after we closed on the house, she continued to check on our property until we actually moved in. Additionally, she provided us contacts and recommendations for everything we needed to get settled in. We loved working with Carmen and thanks to her we now own a beautiful home in a great location.
