This is not the first home Carmen has helped us sell or buy - she has been a trusted friend and realtor for over ten years, and there simply is no one more professional and knowledgeable than Carmen. Her ethics are unquestionable. She gets a double diamond recommendation from me!

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Brisbane, CA.

when our jobs transferred us to Southern California we had little time to prepare for the selling of our home. a client of mine highly recommended Carmen. now we know why. her expertise, knowledge and negotiating skills sold our home in less than 2 1/2 weeks. we just handed her the keys and she took care of the rest. lining up her contractors to prepare the home, stage it, advertising in multiple media and holding and hosting multiple open houses. great on follow up and keeping us informed and a pleasure to work worth. thank you Carmen, Gene

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $1.375M in Belmont, CA.

Carmen has provided absolutely impressive end-to-end service for our first home buying experience. First, she helped us navigate an incredibly difficult market, giving us realistic expectations on how list prices converted into actual sale prices and how to appropriately over-bid without wasting money. She was incredibly detailed in going over all the inspection and geological reports and explained all the home issues that we did not fully understand. She provided quick, rough estimates of how much things would cost to repair to let us have a mental estimate of the amount of money we needed to set aside for repairs. Once we were able to get a place, Carmen provided references for some of the best contractors I have ever seen. The people Carmen knows did stellar, highly detailed work for repainting our house and doing some repairs. Last but not least, Carmen was always on top of everything. She did a great job in organizing all of our contractors. She was detailed focused and made sure we were able to get our place on time.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $325K in Twenty-Fifth Ave, San Mateo, CA.

Carmen is absolutely amazing! She handled the staging of my rental condo and I didn't even go there. I live 140 miles away and she did everything from overseeing tenant move-out, repairs, staging and the sale. The best part is that the was able to negotiate a sale price of 15% higher than the listed price. WOW what a gal. I can't say enough for her talents. She's the BEST real estate broker in San Mateo County. This is the second property she's sold for me and each sale was incredible! Thank you Carmen.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.175M in San Carlos, CA.

I recommend Carmen very highly. In this extreme seller's market, a buyer needs to have a knowledgeable and connected Realtor, and Carmen is both. She was indispensable in helping us buy our house in San Carlos (on our first offer!), and is now actually walking us through the remodel process with her various connections. She is there 24/7 for her clients, and made the stress of Bay Area home buying a lot easier to handle. Please give her a call!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $825K in Southeast Hillsdale, San Mateo, CA.

This was our third transaction with Carmen (buying and selling) and the reasons why we continue to work with her are:

- Frequent and regular updates. We've never been left wondering about the status.

- Very hard negotiator who has your best interest in mind rather than her convenience.

- Great team of trusted advisors and experts (such as contractors, mortgage brokers, lawyers, etc)

- Knowledgable about the cities along the Peninsula. She knows which schools are good, what the 'typical' demographic of the neighborhoods are, what the features of each neighborhood are.

- She creates a customized plan for each client. She doesn't waste your time.

Carmen has represented me for homes anywhere from <$500K - >$800K and she gives each and every sale the same respect and attention regardless of the price tag. She treats you as a client, not a $ value.

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $1.125M in Redwood City, CA.

We had seen Carmen's real estate skills in action with other homes in our Redwood Shores market, and had been favorably impressed. Carmen listed our house, and immediately walked through the house with us pointing out areas which might cause buyers to think twice. She has a handyman available who does excellent work at reasonable cost. She also suggested staging services which enhanced our house greatly. As a marketing tool she uses "Don't Tell Me - Show Me" which is an internet slide show of the property which enables the potential buyer to visualize how the house flows without visiting the property. She was always responsive to any inquiry we might have. In a difficult market she did an excellent job, and I highly recommend her!

Sold a home in 2012 in Millbrae Meadows, Millbrae, CA 94030.

Carmen is very professional at what she does. We gave her a short notice to sell our property and she put together her team of gardener, house cleaner, handy man, and home staging companies together and had the house ready on market in amazing one week! Carmen's service always goes beyond our expectations as she keeps us updated and transparent about the situation. She continues updating us about the surrounding housing markets and trends and provides us with valuable insights and advices on our home selling strategies. We are very happy that we are able to sell our place at our targeted price within a month! This is our second time working with her and both had been great experiences for us!

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $975K in Redwood City, CA.

Carmen was a godsend! We couldn't be happier.

We bid on a short-sale offer and it took more than 3 months to close. During those times, Carmen was always responsive to inquiries, and helped us tremendously in getting through the uncertainty that comes with the transaction.
