I can’t say enough about the professional service that Carmen provided during my recent home sale. Whether you’re an experienced property owner or a first time home Buyer, the importance of having a Professional Real Estate Agent on your side can not be understated, and to that end I would highly recommend Carmen to anyone.

Faced with Covid-19, Shelter-in-Place, tight timelines, and all of the additional complications that come with an overseas move, Carmen was right there to help make this a smooth transition from start to finish!

Extremely dedicated to the needs of his clients, it was obvious from our first meeting that Carmen was willing to go over and above with his time and effort to ensure we had a successful outcome. On our return move to Dallas, I’ll look forward to working with Carmen again!

I have to thank you twice. First, you helped me to find my dream home which I enjoyed for three wonderful years. Then, you also helped me selling the same house in the middle of the Covid-19 outbreak in TX in a matter of weeks. I don’t have enough words of appreciation for all your professional services.  I wish you were here in NY to help me finding my dream house again. Wish you the best and more success in the near future.

Carmen is the real deal!  My husband and I were referred to Carmen by multiple friends, and he absolutely exceeded our expectations.  We were not only purchasing our first home, but we were doing so from out of state, and during a global pandemic!  Despite those challenges, Carmen made the process painless and kept us updated at every step.  He took the time to really get to know us and understand what we were looking for in a home, and was incredibly patient as we navigated the home buying process for the first time.

We could fully trust that he had our best interest in mind.  We never felt pressured to purchase during our many months of looking, but when the right house came along Carmen knew the market and helped us to quickly and seamlessly submit our offer.  Carmen’s expertise and great rapport with the selling agent helped get our offer accepted despite multiple offers from other buyers.

Carmen referred us to many contacts throughout our process (from inspectors, to engineers, to loan officers), and each of the people we interacted with was incredibly thorough, trustworthy, and kind—he never steered us wrong.    Carmen has definitely become our friend and our realtor for life!   We are so grateful to Carmen, Frances, and the Compass team.

I have worked with four different realtors in my life… and none are better than Carmen DiPenti. He found me an amazing house a few years ago, and when my life changed he helped me to list it…. and we got asking price within two days! He is more than just a real estate guru: he is a wonderful life advisor, an endlessly energetic worker, and a great friend. Best of all, I trust him implicitly. If you’re looking to buy or sell a house in Dallas, trust me: you can’t do better than Carmen DiPenti. #Kudos

I have bought and sold 24 homes in my life. I have never had an agent as dedicated as Carmen. Not only did he represent us well in the purchase, he made sure we had everything necessary to move in. Not just utilities, but curtains, plumbers, HVAC contractors, furniture and literally everything you may need when moving. And he is available like all the time. No matter when I texted him, I got an immediate response. He was absolutely amazing.

We heard of Carmen through a trusted family friend, and we are so happy that we were introduced and got to work with Carmen and Frances to buy our first home together. They were diligent in their search to find us a perfect home, responsive and gracious to our many questions and phone calls, and fought for us to get the best deal possible. We couldn’t be happier with our home purchase and the service that Carmen and Frances provided to get us here. We highly recommend working with Carmen and his team, you will walk away with both a realtor and a friend!

Without exaggeration you’re the best realtor I’ve ever dealt with and will gladly refer you in any opportunity.  Please feel free to use me as a reference.

Working with Carmen was great. We met him at an open house for a property he was showing, and knew immediately that we wanted to work with him. His knowledge of the Dallas market was a big help, and being so connected into the community meant we could always get the answers and information we needed. Throughout the entire process, he always made himself available and would look into anything that we asked, no matter how big or small the item. Being first time home buyers, we had a million questions– Carmen guided us through step by step and made it as easy of a process as possible. Though our search ended up taking the better half of a year, Carmen remained patient and encouraging until we found our perfect home. Even after finding our house, Carmen checked in regularly with an updated list of items to keep in mind and made sure we were taken care of. If you are a first time buyer, new to the market, or just looking for an agent, we couldn’t recommend Carmen more!

As first time home buyers, we felt very vulnerable entering the home buying process. From our first interaction with Carmen and Frances we felt at ease. Carmen was very personal and easy to talk to, in addition his knowledge and attention to detail furthered confirmed we were in good hands. As the process continued our expectations continued to be exceeded, Carmen was always ahead of schedule and in control of every situation. Coming into this process we expected a certain level of stress, but working with Carmen proved that the home buying process can be fun if you have the right people on your team. Carmen and Frances were very honest and professional and we would absolutely recommend them to all our friends and loved ones.

Susan and I wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was to work with you on our latest Dallas real estate transaction. You were extremely professional and detail oriented which not only made us feel better, but I’m sure allowed us and the buyers to avoided issues of time and/or money. Also your ability to communicate and negotiate between the two parties helped to make the process pretty painless.

We wish you continued success and will look forward to passing your name along to our friends who are considering buying or selling a home in Dallas.

Carmen’s knowledge of the Dallas Real Estate is very extensive.  My wife and I met Carmen at an open house while  we were  planning a second floor remodel.  His advise helped us  increase the value of our property by $30K.  During the 4 years of knowing Carmen we have referred several of our friends to him and everyone was very pleased with the services he provided .  My wife and I  have recently sold our home in Dallas using Carmen and we received an offer within the first week of showing the property. which we took after a couple of weeks.  Overall very pleased with the services we received from Carmen.

We moved to Dallas and didn’t know the area, and Carmen came recommended by a colleague – and that proved incredibly valuable. He found us an amazing place to rent – and a year later when we were ready to buy, as novice first-time buyers Carmen’s help was phenomenal in navigating the buying, inspection, and closing processes. He made the whole normally complicated, frustrating process of buying a home as seamless as possible. I have actively recommended him to anybody I know looking for a realtor in Dallas. Carmen has been phenomenal.

We can’t say enough positive things about Carmen DiPenti. From our first meeting to even after buying our house, Carmen has been readily accessible, quickly responsive and incredibly knowledgeable.  His professionalism was impeccable throughout the process of buying our house.  All of this set Carmen apart, but additionally he is honest and straightforward, which was invaluable.  I actively try to recommend Carmen to anyone in need of a realtor- we couldn’t have asked for more from him.

If you’re in the market for a home, look no further than Carmen Dipenti to help you throughout the entire process. Carmen is reliable, honest, and knowledgeable. He will do whatever it takes to find your perfect home. My husband and I bought our first home this past December, and we honestly could not have imagined a better experience. Carmen was patient and diligent with us for almost two years while we searched for the perfect place. We were extremely picky, indecisive, and at times I felt we would never find the right place. However, Carmen reassured us every step of the way.  He was thoughtful and straightforward as we debated pros/cons of different options. Not once did we ever feel pressured to buy. My husband and I have a very busy schedule and Carmen was always available to show us houses – even at last minute’s notice. Carmen took the time to get to know us as people and as a family, in order to help us find a suitable home. If it wasn’t for Carmen, I honestly believe that we would have either settled for the wrong home, or we would still be in the market! Lastly, Carmen was indispensable in guiding us through the closing process once we did find the perfect place.  He was a firm negotiator and thorough process-manager.  You will not regret choosing Carmen Dipenti for your real estate needs.

We were setup on MLS to continually see options that fit the criteria that we were looking for.  Carmen did a great job of asking questions and listening to our needs and wants.  Carmen never rushed us and treated our needs as though they were his own.  Through the process, Taylor and I were able to build a great friendship and partnership with Carmen, which was very relieving during such a stressful time.  Carmen was great at being patient and encouraging throughout the entire process.  We genuinely felt like he only wanted the absolute best for us, so he was beyond accommodating throughout the process.  We spent nearly a year looking for our home, and we are so glad that we did because we found the perfect home.  Without Carmen, we feel that we would have settled or quit our search, and we are so thankful that we did not.

Carmen treated our home search like it was his own home search.  I sometimes wondered how Carmen could have any other clients other than us because we were so high maintenance.  Carmen was patient and helped us through the whole process including after we closed.

We already have recommended Carmen to various friends and acquaintances.  You can’t go wrong with Carmen.  He’s responsive, thorough, passionate, and genuinely cares about his clients.

I closed on my new condo a few weeks back and wanted to comment on how incredibly easy the process was with Carmen. He walked me through the process not just from start to finish but also came to closing AND sent me reminders on future task completion regarding this recent purchase. I would rate his service 12 out of 10 !! Thank you Carmen!!
