Carmen is wonderful to work with - she was responsive and always made time for questions and requests. We wanted to move quickly, and she worked diligently to ensure everything was aligned for a speedy close. She thought through a lot of details so we didn't have to, and the entire process from house viewings to close, was very well organized. I would certainly recommend working with Carmen!

This is the second time that we worked with Carmen on a real estate transaction. Again, she was very conscientious, knowledgeable, and enjoyable to work with. We moved very quickly on the deal, from making the offer through acceptance and then through escrow. All in all, a great experience.

Carmen did an amazing job assisting us in our home-buying process. From our initial property search until we received our keys, Carmen was right there with information and answers. Her strong network of relationships expedited the process and made for a smooth transaction. She is always available for questions whether by phone, text or email. Carmen is genuinely a pleasure to work with. She made us feel like we were her only clients, which we know is not the case. We look forward to the next opportunity to partner with Carmen!

It was a pleasure having Carmen Carr as our realtor for our purchase of a new home and sale of our condo. She always made herself available to us, demonstrated a good knowledge of the market and worked hard to make our transactions happen in a very short time frame. Additionally we are impressed with her commitment to the local community. She invests herself in making it a better place for all. Thank you Carmen.

Carmen was referred to us by a good friend and we were so glad we followed their advice!

From the first moment we met Carmen we knew we had made the right choice. She clearly explained the intricacies and nuances of selling a home in Truckee. He knowledge of Tahoe Donner (including previous sales and future listings) was extensive. She clearly communicated her plans and processes she would use to sell our home. She was so on the ball!

We could not fault Carmen's drive, her professionalism and her ability to stay on top of every issue that arose. Her commitment to making the selling process stress free and simple was exemplary. She really did us proud! Thanks Carmen!

We just completed a sale, our third transaction with Carmen. As in the past she was thoroughly professional and a pleasure to deal with. Carmen is very detail oriented and handled every aspect of the entire process with promptness and skill. The sales literature, photography, and preparation of the property were all first rate. Carmen accurately priced the property and as a result we had two offers at list price within two days of listing.

Carmen led an outstanding process for us to downsize from our large home on Skislope Way to acquire and move to a smaller, more right-sized new home for Sue and me. I told Carmen what we were looking for, she found it, and arranged the purchase. She also facilitated the selling of our previous home. There was a lot to this process. Carmen was patient with us, encouraged and informed us when we were uncertain as to what to do, and kept a positive, upbeat attitude throughout the experience. If you need a very competent realtor who is a joy to work with I highly recommend that you work with Carmen.

For anyone looking for a wonderful realtor in the Truckee area, I would whole heartedly recommend Carmen Carr.

Carmen came highly recommended to us, and we are thankful to have met her because she was a tremendous ally in the process of purchasing our home and continues to be a great help even after the sale has closed.

Our journey to purchase a home spanned probably a whole year. Yet Carmen was always so patient with us. We truly felt as though she was motivated to find the right house for us - or nothing. She’s not out to simply close a sale.

My impression of Carmen is that she really does take the long view of embracing that what’s best for her clients really will ultimately be best for her as well. She not only takes this to heart but she takes it to the next level. She was always available to us via phone and text. She proved time and again to have great insights and knowledge of the Truckee market. And when we finally went into contract, it really was a seamless process with Carmen paying the utmost attention to detail. She’s a total pro.

Last but not least, Carmen is a wonderful person and is a joy to deal with!

Carmen is THE BEST!!! My wife and I first met Carmen back in 2011 while looking for a "home away from home" in Truckee, Ca. We were so blessed to have met Carmen during this time. Carmen was the agent for the seller and we were SO IMPRESSED with her!!! We found her to be completely attentive to both the seller and ourselves, the perspective buyers. She made the whole process easy and smooth. We have since sold our home, after enjoying for 7 years, and Carmen made this possible. My wife and I couldn't have asked for a more professional, attentive, and simply AMAZING person to work with! Carmen will be the ONLY agent we will ever want to have in any/all of our future real estate transactions in the Truckee/Tahoe area for as long as she is the area/business!!! Thank you so much, Carmen!! ~ John and Candi Gimroth

Carmen Carr is an affable and thoughtful real estate advisor and consultant. Her thorough and professional efforts in assisting us find our mountain home were most welcoming. She was diligent and resourceful in her actions with us.

The search for our mountain home took us thorough three offers. Carmen remained very dedicated in finding us a property that was reflective of our interests and budget. While there were some minor bumps in the road during the search, we find found and successfully purchased a beautifully remodeled one story home.

We thank Carmen for her efforts and believe she could assist many others in their pursuit of finding a home in the Tahoe vicinity.

I can't recommend Carmen enough. If she was honest and and supportive throughout the entire home search and home purchase. She connected us with a great resources in the area which was so needed given we had just arrived! Even a trip to Germany didn't stop her support and involvement! She even stayed up to the wee hours of the morning to ensure our escrow closed properly. Upon her arrival back to the states, she dropped a sweet gift at our front door. I would recommend Carmen over and over again for anyone's home buying or selling needs!

We were very pleased with Carmen as our realtor who helped us find the perfect vacation house for our family. I met Carmen when I, Virginia, flew up from San Antonio to see this house and others that she wanted us to see as comparisons. She was great with our two grandsons who were with us and eager to find the areas of the houses that appealed to them. Carmen was warm, obliging, and eager to find answers to all our questions. Other than receiving emails requiring our electronic signatures, Frank, our son-in-law and the other buyer with our daughter, Allyson, had more contact with Carmen regarding closing etc . We are sitting in the house now enjoying our vacation home! We are so pleased to have been able to buy it with all the furnishings which we love. Both of us love our vacation home and are grateful to Carmen for helping to make it happen!

We have had the pleasure of working with many real estate consultants, and Carmen certainly stands out as one of the BEST!
Her response time to any question or request was almost immediate. Throughout the purchase transaction process she did a terrific job of keeping us updated on an almost daily basis. Our purchase transaction turned out to be rather challenging one, but Carmen stayed the course and negotiated some larger than expected credits from the seller. Once the property had closed she mailed us an electronic copy of the fully executed documents. No other real estate consultants has ever done this for us. She was pretty generous in her ways by sending us flowers and visiting us in our new home to make sure that we were comfortable she even made a donation in our name to a local charity. Carmen did a great job of holding our hands throughout the real estate transaction. She is a true gem in the real estate world. Thank you Carmen.

'It only takes one' is what Carmen would tell us (my mom and I). It may have taken 3 attempts but the ONE did come thru and closed within 30 days. Carmen's patience with us was exceptional. I would work with her again and recommend her for her market knowledge, ability to work with brokers and workable demeanor.
