My experience was great with both Jacqueline and Lisa. I am in the mortgage business and worked with them both on a Purchase for another buyer and had a great response so when I went to buy my new home I used them.

Working with the Carpe Diem Group was wonderful when purchasing my first home. I was fortunate enough to work closely with Anne Salvino who was incredibly helpful and exceeded my expectations. Going through the process of buying a home was very daunting but Anne made the entire experience smooth.

Bought a home in 2014 in Lake Hills, Bellevue, WA 98008.

Jacqueline Nguyen and Andrew Maglalang are the BEST real estate agents we have ever had! As a full service agent, they impressed us every step during our new house search, bidding, negotiation, mortgage comparison, closing as well as helping rent out our previous residence. We got connected to Andrew and Jacqueline when we inquired about a listing. At that time we were not quite sure if we were sure to purchase a new house as the market was already heated up and very competitive. Andrew politely yet persistently kept in touch with us. His professional manner and perseverance impressed us so much that we decided to go with them two months later when we finally decided to purchase a new house instead of our previous agent who is also experienced. After that, it took us another 6 months and 69 prospective houses to finally find our dream house. Yes, 69 houses! The market was so competitive and we were both confused about our needs after searching for a while as well as frustrated after we lost bid. Andrew and Jacqueline always met us with smile, and patiently shared with us their thoughts and never rushed us to make a decision. I must point out that in our previous experiences with other brokers, they usually slow down their frequency of communication with us after a month+ in the process once we combed through what's on the market. But Andrew and Jacqueline NEVER did that to us. In fact, had they not kept us engaged and helped us to revisit our criteria every a while, we would have given up probably. After we found our dream house. Jacqueline and Andrew continued to impress us with their knowledge about mortgage and negotiated effectively with the seller who had seller's remorse. At one point, it seemed that we were not able to close the loan in time in which case the seller was likely to take the house back and relist at a much higher price. Those were highly stressful times for all parties involved. Jacqueline and Andrew worked closely with the mortgage agent and thought of creative ways to get things done. At the end we closed a super jumbo loan in just 20 days! If not for Jacqueline and Andrew, we would not have been able to find our dream house at such a great price in such a hot real estate market. We recommended them to our friend who was considering agent that were willing to give them kick back for commission. After engaged with Andrew and Jacqueline, our friend were so impressed with their services that they chose Andrew and Jacqueline and bought a new house as well. From the very beginning, Jacqueline and Andrew told us that every client is a life time client for them. They most definitely worked hard towards this goal and have our highest recommendation!

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $125K in Puyallup, WA.

The agent Andrew Maglalang (who works under Jacqueline Nguyen) was the one who listed and sold my townhouse. Andrew was able to get a cash buyer with top dollar offer so the closing was quick and fast. I was skeptic at first because that was the time of the market where it was hard to sell and would be lucky if i get a good offer. There was a lot of units at my place that was short sale and on foreclosure but Andrew found a buyer. I also used Andrew Maglalang to purchase another property so it all worked great. Thanks to Andrew Maglalang and Jacqueline Nguyen.

Bought a home in 2013 in Frederickson, WA 98375.

Andrew was very responsive in helping us find a home in a short amount of time. He responded to all our emails quickly and got us appointments to view homes right away. When we found our home we needed to move quickly. He gave us expert advice on offering and what to include in the documents. When our financing person was not responsive or helpful Andrew had connections to get things done right and in a timely matter.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $325K in Judkins Park, Seattle, WA.

Jacqueline was very responsive and informative when helping us purchase our home. As first time home buyers, we were completely unaware of the process, but with her help, it was a breeze and we feel that we got everything and more than we asked!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Pinehurst, Seattle, WA.

It's been a little over a year since my husband and I bought our house through Andrew Maglalang and we couldn't be happier! What I appreciated most about Andrew was his communication, flexibility and enthusiasm for realty. He knew about all the neighborhoods, were honest to us about the houses, and really went out of his way to show us a house whenever we asked ... even if it was at 8 PM on a Tuesday night!!

Because his motivation and determination matched ours, we were able to find our perfect home in about a month. All of our paperwork went smoothly, and we were in our new home in no time. Highly recommend Team Carpe Diem!

Bought a home in 2013 in Martha Lake, North Creek, WA 98012.

We worked with Jacqueline and Lisa and had a fantastic experience. We were very picky and saw upwards of 35-40 houses in a week and a half. When we brought homes to Lisa's attention she gave us honest advice on which houses may be right for us. For the home we ended up buying, we competed against 6 other offers. She gave us advice on the best way to formulate our offer for best success yet stay within our comfort zone during negotiations. She presented our offer in person and, although we didn't present the highest dollar amount, we still won the bidding. We are forever thankful and will absolutely recommend Lisa's services.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $450K in Phinney Ridge, Seattle, WA.

Everything went smooth and painlessly, I couldn't have asked for more from Jacqueline. I'd work with her again anytime. She was a great facilitator.

Bought a home in 2013 in Big Lake, Mount Vernon, WA 98274.

Lisa and Jacqueline were extremely helpful with our home buying experience. Being first time home buyers, we had tons of questions and they were very patient and quick to respond. Their local knowledge helped us find a house in a great neighborhood. They were able to negotiate a great price for us and we can't thank them anymore for the great service!
