I thought of you first because I think of you as someone who takes the job very seriously. I also believe you have a high standard of ethic. That combined with your work ethic make choosing you a slam dunk in my book.
Working with Carmen was a pleasure. He not only sold my house quickly and with great ease, he also found my family the perfect house to move into. Carmen has meticulous taste and it shows in his marketing skills. Everything went smoothly, especially the closing. I highly recommend Carmen and will use him exclusively for all of my future real estate needs.
This was my fourth home purchase and my only regret was that I had not used Carmen for the preceding three transactions. The entire experience of working with him was a pleasure — which was a stark contrast from my experiences with other realtors.
Carmen was incredibly patient as I started, paused, and restarted my search several times. He helped me to determine the parameters for my search in a way that accommodated my unique needs (which did not lend themselves to an easy MLS search as my main priority was a particular layout), and he found the perfect home for my family.
Better still — he found a home that was under my budget, and he then expertly negotiated the transaction to make it an even better for me. In my prior transactions, I often felt that my buying agent was on the seller’s side; by contrast, Carmen doggedly fought to get me everything that I wanted. He even helped me to find contractors after the sale, and has remained available to help me with answering questions, following up with contractors, and more.
Carmen is an incredible advocate for his clients, and he is exceptionally talented as a realtor. I have recommended him to several other people and will definitely be using him in the future — although, since he did such a great job finding me a home, that may not be for many, many years.
We are so grateful for Carmen DiPenti and all of his hard work in helping us sell our house. It was a huge weight off of our shoulders knowing Carmen was there to literally do everything necessary to get a house sold. We were living in California and asking Carmen to sell our house in Texas so he did everything down to personally changing the air filters. The trust we have in Carmen is beyond any we have ever had in any realtor and we would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Carmen was such a joy to work with! We used him to buy a new home and also to sell the one we were living in which made the whole process so much easier. It was so seamless and he kept us in the loop on every aspect of both transactions. Carmen fought for us when we were dealing with difficult sellers and their agent, and was relentless on getting results! He was friendly, flexible, professional and hard working. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!

There are not enough words to express how grateful I am to have had the opportunity to work with Carmen. It was an emotional journey finding my perfect home and Carmen was a constant support with his guidance and knowledge every step of the way. He truly wants the best for his clients and it shows!!
My wife Cathy and I have engaged Carmen to both find us a house to buy in the Dallas area and also to sell our apartment in Dallas. We could not be happier with the results. We looked at several available homes as shortlisted by Carmen and as we were looking for a specific house (downstairs master bedroom) within a specific neighborhood (Lakewood) it was not an easy search. At the end of the day Carmen assisted us in making an offer for what we perceived as the perfect house for us and we were able to negotiate a fair price with Carmen’s assistance. On the sale of our condo, we were able to get a contract and sale completed within about a one month period. The price we were able to get was above our expectations as well. We would definitely use Carmen again if we were in the market to buy or sell again in the Dallas area.

My husband and I were referred to Carmen by my sister, who had been referred to him by a close family friend. From the beginning we were impressed with Carmen’s professionalism and attention to detail. We never once felt like we were being pressured into buying a home, and honestly, Carmen stopped us from pursuing more than a few homes when he could tell we were “settling”. He spent over three months with us, often viewing homes multiple times a week. He got to know us so well throughout this process, that when he found the house that we now call our home, he texted us and insisted we view the home that day. And he was right.
Carmen’s instincts and insights assisted us to purchase a home that not only did we absolutely love, but serves as a good investment as well.
You won’t find anyone more honest or hard-working than Carmen, we have and will continue to recommend him as a real estate agent!

I had the distinct opportunity to work with Carmen on a property purchase. I had a particular building that I wanted to be in and it took three long years to close a deal. Between seller’s issues, few condos for sale in the building, my pickiness and timing issues I feared I would never find the right place. There were times when I was afraid Carmen would tell me to get lost but he was patient, professional and my voice of reason throughout the process. Rather than encourage me to buy as the impatience mounted he steered me away from a few units that he knew would not be the right choice. I would absolutely recommend Carmen to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the DFW Metroplex.
Let me enthusiastically recommend Carmen Dipenti if you are looking to acquire or divest a home. Admittedly, I was fearful of the stereotypical Real Estate Agent, fast talking, eager to deal, perhaps lazy.
I was delighted to find exactly the OPPOSITE in Carmen. His knowledge of the market, his broad-creative marketing strategies and tactics, his professionalism-class, tireless work ethic and exceptional follow up skills sold my house quickly in a soft market.
I am convinced that without him, my home would still be listed. I am also convinced that without him, the premium price my home was able to command versus neighborhood comps would not have been possible.
I have only run into one friend who is in need of Real Estate representation. They are now ecstatic clients of Mr. Dipenti. I have fully endorsed him to family and co-workers.
If you need a fact based, objective conversation about him as a possible agent for you, please have him give you my contact information.
Carmen was amazing throughout the entire process of buying my first home. He was extremely patient in both the search and execution of the purchase. He is one of the hardest working and most detail oriented people I have ever met. I have never taken the time to write a review of anyone or anything, but I can not recommend Carmen highly enough (though I try often).
Carmen made the process of buying a home so easy and stress free. He is extremely hard working and always available. He is also very knowledgeable about the whole process and gives prompt and thorough responses to all of your questions. He is professional, thoughtful, honest, and most importantly he is someone that you can trust. Even after I closed on my home he has stayed in touch. I would recommend him to anyone and without a doubt he will be my realtor for any other house I buy or sell.
As first time home buyers, my fiancé and I didn’t know what to expect. Carmen came referred to me by two of my co workers who raved about their home buying and selling experience with him. I will be one to say, they were not lying. I’ve never met someone so knowledgeable and so dedicated to truly going above and beyond for his clients. He held our hands every step of the way, and answered any question we had before we even had a chance to ask. Trust me when I say, you are in the BEST hands if you choose Carmen DiPenti as your realtor.

We were recommended Carmen from a good friend after going through a bad string of realtors that were too pushy on getting us to buy a house. Carmen was exactly what we needed. He doesn’t pressure or guilt trip you if you back out of a house, is very respectful and what sets him apart from all the rest, he works for you. He will go through listings and put comments based on what we want. He will call out a house for what it is, a flip, issues you wouldn’t expect (like being 2 wire), etc.
We were overly impressed with his work ethic, non-pressuring attitude and how he handled our purchase of our house. He isn’t just an agent, he is a friend. I would highly recommend Carmen to any and all of my friends and hope you give him a call if you’re looking for a house too.
Gosh I could sing Carmen’s praises from the rooftops!
Here we go…
Carmen’s business acumen and professionalism was a breath of fresh air. He knew the answer to every question I had and was always available for me when I needed anything. Carmen was able to get me an offer over asking price and such a smooth closing. I recommend him to every single person I know in need of a Realtor.
Start to finish, Carmen’s service, conscientiousness, and genuine devotion were unmatched.
We bought and sold with Carmen and could not be happier with the level of care he gave us. At every step of the process, Carmen proved to be our advocate, working tirelessly on our behalf to ensure we were able to maximize both sides of purchasing and selling.
Carmen brings a substantial business acumen and knowledge of the market, but his personal touch and sincere commitment to his clients stand out in a sea of otherwise knowledgeable agents.
Seriously, if you are looking at buying and/or selling, give Carmen a call. Not only will you walk away after a great experience, you’ll walk away with a friend.
Completely ignorant to the world of real estate, I started a condo search in early 2017. I interviewed a bevy of agents and got the feeling the Dallas market was pretty saturated with amateurs and poor service. I was eventually referred to Carmen by a mortgage broker who vouched for him. FINALLY, a referral that was true down to the last compliment!

Four words: diligent, attentive, frank (honest), and PROFESSIONAL. We met in person for our first set of viewings and I instantly felt at ease. He showed great vision for the good properties, but was very quick to tell me which ones to avoid. I knew nothing and it would’ve been easy to just pitch each one for it’s merits to get me sold. But where he didn’t see value, he was very up front about it. Right away I knew he was the right choice.
Life changed in a big hurry for me and my partner just as we were nearing an agreement on a $120k condo purchase. I became unsure about it and expressed this to Carmen. With everything to lose and nothing to gain, he told me that this is a huge purchase and it should FEEL right. So we killed our progress on the deal.
All of the sudden, my little condo search turned into a full blown 3BR home purchase. Carmen had one conversation with my girlfriend and she agreed—this was our guy. Every inspection, every meeting, every phone call with the structural engineer, every interaction with the broker, there was Carmen—day or night. Here’s what I really appreciated—this was the case whether it was for the $120k condo or the much bigger house purchase. He was always the same, and I truly appreciate him for that.
With Carmen’s help and advice, we finally closed on an amazing home and got a fair price in a crazy market. After we hugged it out, Carmen and I chatted about our long journey together and the how the ending couldn’t have been any happier! Nothing but gratitude for this guy, I would highly recommend him to my best friends, siblings, grandmother, or perfect stranger!
