Happy Clients…

Carmen, you did so many things to make this work out for us!

Now that the dust has settled, we wanted to let you know how happy we were at the way everything turned out in the selling process of our home.

“Thanks Carmen for all your assistance on the Purchase and Resale of my first home

in San Mateo. Your Team (Inspectors, Handymen, Escrow to Loan Brokers) was fantastic the first time around. Your assistance on selling it before I moved to the east coast again was ‘hassle and stress free’! You knew exactly how to guide me through both of my experiences in purchasing and selling. I will always be Thankful to you for all… Read more ““Thanks Carmen for all your assistance on the Purchase and Resale of my first home”

“Dear Carmen, I just wanted to give you a hearty recommendation on the wonderful job you did

in preparing and ultimately selling my home at 653 Celestial Lane. Your knowledge of the market conditions as well as your experience in knowing how to prepare and position a property were essential for the rapid ~30 day sale of my home.

“We have really enjoyed working with you.

You did an extraordinary job selling our house. Your work marketing was exceptional and really paid off dividends in terms of buyer interest and finally, the number of offers we received. Thanks to your efforts, we were quite overwhelmed to receive 12 offers that we reviewed in the end. My wife Aruna & I feel you were always very helpful… Read more ““We have really enjoyed working with you.”

“Kim and I truly appreciate the effort you put into selling our old home & helping us find our “forever” home.

Not only was the whole process tricky & complicated since it was done almost concurrent with each other, but the transactions themselves gave us something that could not be quantified, and that is peace of mind. Peace of mind for me is knowing that we got the best price for our home when we sold it, and that we bought… Read more ““Kim and I truly appreciate the effort you put into selling our old home & helping us find our “forever” home.”

“Dear Carmen, On behalf of the Swanson Family I would like to thank you for your expert services.

I never expected you to sell our parents home in two weeks and also have an excellent back up offer. This was a great time of sorrow for us as a family, with the loss of our 89-year-old mother and selling the home we all grow up in. We all had to deal with the 64 years of happy memories… Read more ““Dear Carmen, On behalf of the Swanson Family I would like to thank you for your expert services.”

“HI Carmen, A big thank you once more for the incredible mix of grace and steel in obtaining 143 Palisades for us.

The home warranty insurance was already too generous, and today- you also want to buy me fixtures from Lowes. Thanks Fairy Godmother! I just posted my review on yelp, see below.

“Dear Carmen I would like to thank you for all of your hard work in selling my condo at 1687 Bayridge Way #116 in San Mateo California.

We met with numerous realtors and you were the most confident and organized of them all. The sale of my condo has helped me achieve my goal of having my wife stay home with our new daughter. The stress of paying two mortgages and an im- pending pay cut made it impossible to even keep the condo as a rental.… Read more ““Dear Carmen I would like to thank you for all of your hard work in selling my condo at 1687 Bayridge Way #116 in San Mateo California.”

“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… Read more ““I recommend Carmen very highly.”

“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… Read more ““Carmen is absolutely amazing!”

“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.”

“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, handyman, and home staging companies together and had the house ready on market in amazing one week!

The house sold in 13 days and at our asking price in this very difficult market! In looking at all the other listings in our area, we haven’t seen that anywhere else.

Carmen provided the initial due diligence, and as the market weakened provided us with continual timely updates. Her team was instrumental in the sale of our house at a reasonable price. Carmen has exceptional skills in marketing strategies, and price negotiation. There is no doubt if we were to do another transaction on the peninsula we would use Carmen.”

our apologies to Carmen! We first met Carmen several years ago at an open house she had and had a good impression of her.

She managed to get me the price and terms I had requested. She stayed on the other realtor who seemed to be slacking on his end. Time was of the essence.
