Carmen,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your time, assistance, hard work and help in selling our Vancouver house. You and your entire team have imprinted a very professional impression on me from since we first met up to today when the property transactions concluded. Your articulate and detailed work helped us sell our Vancouver property quickly. Also you were very considerate in working around our schedules. Appreciate your effort.
I will surely look forward to work with you whenever I am ready to transact again in the Vancouver realestate market.
Best regards,

From the moment Carmen walked into our suite she shared our enthusiasm and excitement. Carmen understood our needs and worked tirelessly bringing potential buyers through our Vancouver condo.
A few tense moments, and sellers’ anxiety, but Carmen was able to quell the nerves. A few weeks later we were in the notary’s office signing the sales papers and happily moving on with the next phase of our lives.
Thank you Carmen.

There are stellar, professional real estate agents and then there is Carmen. We have bought several Vancouver investment properties with Carmen's help and she is always available, always willing to put in the extra effort and take us the full journey from presenting a successful offer to being there til the day we take possession and our first renters enter the premise. The energy, patience and willingness to help, and always with a smile, is very much appreciated. Carmen is our Vancouver realtor for life. Look no further, Carmen is here.

"After several efforts in trying to sell our house with other agents, we were not sure which direction to take. Our long time neighbour strongly recommended Carmen. We immediately found out that Carmen was different from the previous agents from her positive attitude/mindset, creativity in her marketing and sales approach and very professional . Her team prepared fantastic photos and film for the house (I wanted to buy after seeing the photos/film). Carmen got our house sold in less then 2 weeks. I would strongly recommend Carmen for any of your real estate transactions."

Carmen worked with me for over a year to find a suitable Vancouver home for my family. The search process was time consuming as we had very precise needs. Carmen was patient throughout the process and was not frustrated with our detailed requirements. I would recommend her to any of my friends for a Vancouver home purchase.

We didn’t know Carmen before we found a Vancouver office unit from her listing. Her quick response and manner impressed us tremendously from the beginning. What impressed us even more was the fact that she maintained the same level of professionalism throughout the purchasing process. She was thorough, fair, genuine, and accessible. We will not hesitate to recommend her to our friends.
Cheers,
Samson

We made a great choice in a Vancouver realtor when we chose you as you always made an effort to communicate and gave us plenty of choice when we were looking for property in Vancouver downtown area.  We felt very comfortable with you and felt confident that you could get us the best possible choice and price for potential property.  We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anybody who is contemplating selling or buying and wish you all the continued success.

As a friend of one of Carmen Leal's clients I stood by and observed how well Carmen conducted herself while selling my friend’s Vancouver apartment. At all times courteous, professional and focused, Carmen was readily available to address my friend’s concerns, offer suggestions and give support when needed. My friend was able to sell her Vancouver apartment for a very good price, in a timely manner aided greatly by Carmen's charm, dedication and hard work.

Carmen Leal has been my realtor for some time now and I am happy to give my feed-back regarding my experience as a seller. Carmen worked diligently with clients whom she deemed, correctly, as potential buyers of my Vancouver property. My Vancouver listing got a lot of response and was sold for close to asking price. Carmen's work ethic is inspiring, actually. She loves her profession, and it shows.
I am now anticipating a fruitful and pleasant journey as a potential buyer with Carmen at the helm. I feel confident in her ability to find me my new home sweet home.

Carmen has a tremendous 'grasp' of the market and possesses that intuitive feling as to what a house is really worth and how well it will sell.

“We are grateful to have met Carmen and there was a comfort zone to her personality, and how she presented herself in a professional manner. Having engaged her as our agent there was no regrets. We are pleased with the time that my wife and I spent with Carmen on searching for a new home, without her this wouldn’t have been possible. I would highly recommend her. Thank you again, Carmen, and if there is any need in the future, we will be calling on you.”

We had previously tried to sell our Vancouver house a few times, but with no success. We went though a couple of Vancouver realtors trying to do so. Then a friend introduced us to Carmen. Right from the start we realized we made a right decision. She was very articulate, patient and professional. We love the creative marketing that she created for our home, which included a cinematic film, gorgeous daytime/twilight photos. Best marketing in town!! During the offers and counter offers, Carmen turned out to be not only our Vancouver agent, but also a very good negotiator, by getting us over our asking price. We are extremely happy and highly recommend Carmen Leal to anyone.

"As a first time home buyer, we have been fortunate to have bought a Vancouver condo through you. In fact, we actually bought a Vancouver penthouse that was within our budget and in an ideal location! We felt very comfortable with you because you are a very experienced and professional Vancouver realtor who always has a pleasant smile on your face. You always kept us up to date and provided practical comments on what were available in the Vancouver condo market. Thank you so much for making our first home purchase successful!"

Carmen made a tremendous commitment to us as we pondered purchasing in Vancouver or White Rock…condo vrs house… She was very patient and persistent, and helped us find the "home of our dreams!" We appreciate her time and effort tremendously!

Highly professional, personal, energetic, knowledgeable, accommodating, and reliable. These are characteristics one looks for in a good realtor. And this combination is Carmen Leal. Best of all, it’s easy to tell that she is really invested in her work, and this means an enjoyable experience for her clients.
We are US citizens who love Vancouver and have dreamed of a part-time home here for many years. When we finally found ourselves in a situation where we were able to make that dream come true, we needed help understanding the Vancouver market and finding the perfect place. We met Carmen, started working with her, and have felt we made the right decision ever since.
Carmen patiently helped us understand the Canadian real estate buying process, worked with us to pinpoint the neighborhoods that we found attractive, and targeted the types of home that we had in mind. From there, she was constantly available to show us many homes as we narrowed our search. She provided insights as to the quality of the homes, investment possibilities for each, and characteristics of the neighborhoods that make a real difference in day-to-day life.
When the time was right – when we found the perfect place – Carmen brought together all the resources that we needed to make it our new home. She worked with her contacts to pair us with an independent mortgage broker who specializes in out-of-country buyers. As a result we were able to secure a very advantageous mortgage that made buying even more satisfying.
Throughout the whole process Carmen’s greatest value to us was her personal touch. She spent a great deal of time with us up front to truly understand the type of home we imagined for ourselves. She was in constant contact; always available. She was interested in us, and what we wanted from our buying experience. And most importantly, we never doubted that she had our best interests in mind. A realtor on your side – that’s Carmen!
