We were looking to invest in a home in DC, and chose Eng Garcia for it's reputation of being extremely knowledgeable, experienced, and thorough. Carlos and Aaron were fantastic - patient, detail-oriented, and also very kind and warm. We ended up deciding to postpone our housing search, but when we take up the search again, we will absolutely be going back to Eng Garcia. We highly recommend them.

Carlo and his team actually did most of the work while my wife and I were caught out of town because our first baby was born early. So thankful they knew what to do and helped us get a great price for a condo we really cared about.

Carlos and the EngGarcia team are absolutely tops in providing an end-to-end solution for me as a buyer and landlord for my 2-unit residential property. They are smart, honest, experienced, aggressive, and detail-oriented. They possess--either in-house or via their professional network--every kind of service provider a homeowner needs, from mortgage consultants, appraisers and insurers, to architects, contractors, and building managers. Most important, Carlos and the team collectively served as a trusted advisor during all parts of my decision-making process, including neighborhood and property selection, financing, renovation, property management, and leasing. This comes as no surprise, given that he and his partner/wife Lucinda are a lawyer and interior designer, respectively, and collectively have close to 40 years of real estate industry experience between them as investor, landlord, and agent.
I met Carlos over a couple of years ago, after he sold a neighbors house in the same building. We wanted to realize a profit after being in the condo a few years and we refused to take what the market would bear. So we placed the unit on the market and crossed our fingers. There were a few challenges, and after lowering the price, we finally pulled if off the market. The following spring we decided to try again, and there had been major issues in my life and Carlos stuck by us. We got our asking price plus his smooth delivery eased us though what might have been a tough sale. Carlos not only knows his business and the market he understands people.

We enjoyed working with Carlos and Aaron and thought they did a great job understanding our needs and providing us with options that suited our requirements and budget. Carlos was a great help when the seller made some poor calls in the closing process. Carlos and team helped guide us through it smoothly and we ended up with a home we are happy to call ours. I recommend sitting down with his team and seeing what they can come up with for you.
Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $625K in Near Northeast, Washington, DC.
It was a pleasure to work with Carlos and his team at Eng Garcia Properties. As first-time homebuyers we were a bit in the dark about the house-hunting process. Carlos took the time to help us decide what neighborhood we were interested in by picking out some great options to show. Once we had narrowed things down, he and his associate, Aaron, were attentive and responsive to get us out seeing properties. When after just a dozen houses we found “the one”, Carlos and his team moved fast to ensure that we could offer a competitive bid. With just one bid, we got our home! The best part about working with Carlos was his patience and know-how to guide us smoothly through the bidding and closing process. His team is highly professional and experienced and everything went through without a hitch. We are incredibly happy with our new home and highly recommend Carlos and the whole Eng Garcia team.

Carlos is a strategic partner in real estate who is highly responsive to his client's needs, whether your interest is in purchasing from an investment perspective or a lifestyle perspective, such as location, type of housing, etc. He works hard to understand your needs and to focus on delivering efficiently to get to the outcome your desire. As we were new to DC, Carlos spent time with us to help us quickly move from a broad survey of the DC landscape to a very focused search for a location and a property that is truly perfect for us, and we could not be happier with the outcome. From a financial perspective, he helped us understand the very special DC market and to negotiate effectively to ensure our purchase was a good decision. And, above all, Carlos is a very nice guy who became a friend over the time he worked with us. I highly recommend Carlos as a strategic real estate professional and partner!

The entire team at Eng/Garcia was professional, knowledgeable, and dedicated. They were consistently determined to give my property great exposure and it was sold as a result of their activities. I recommend them without hesitation.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.175M in Cleveland Park, Washington, DC.
Carlos Garcia is the ultimate professional. He is extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market, mortgages and processes involved in buying a home. He was not just instrumental in helping find our new home, but also in helping us set up our previous home as a rental property. He is responsive and always found the time to go and view properties or discuss our concerns regarding the buying process. His ability to see the potential in a house, identify its problems and clearly articulate them was invaluable. More importantly, after we closed on the new house, he stayed engaged helping us find a contactor and connecting us with an interior designer who work with us, at no charge, to create a space we can call home.

Thank you so much for the kind words! I truly enjoyed working with you and am happy to hear that you're enjoying your new home! Cheers, Carlos
Bought a Condo home in 2013 in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC.
Carlos was extremely professional, helpful, and knowledgable. We had originally planned on a much longer timeline because I had several months before I needed to purchase. However, when a property went on the market and we needed too move very quickly, Carlos dropped everything, shifted gears and worked tirelessly to get the deal done. He kept me informed of everything that was happening and ultimately let me make the decisions. He even kept on top of everything during a Christmas family vacation as the deal was closing. I would highly recommend working with Carlos as I couldn't have been happier with the experience.
