This was our first home buying experience and Carmen made it extremely smooth and simple. Carmen always made himself available and answered all of our questions with honesty and full transparency. 
 
Throughout the house hunting process, Carmen was able to share his vast knowledge and experience which helped us stay clear of certain homes and focus on others. Once it came time to do the paperwork and work through financing, Carmen put our minds at ease. He took his time to explain every detail. 
 
The whole process felt like we were the only ones working with Carmen! There was never a moment where we felt forced or “sold.” It truly felt like Carmen wasn’t interested in the sale but in making sure we felt cared for and found the home of our dreams! 
 
I will continue to utilize Carmen’s services in any future real estate I purchase!

A big Thank You to Carmen for all the work he put into selling my home in McKinney. He took care of every detail and kept me in the loop on everything. I live out of state and when I needed something done at the property 

Carmen went above and beyond to help me get things arranged and taken care of. When paperwork needed to be signed he walked me through the process answering all my questions no matter how many times I asked the same question. 

I felt that I could contact him on anything and he would always respond. Whether you are selling or buying a home, he is your guy. You can be confident you are in good hands. I would definitely recommend him as well as use him again!

We first met Carmen when we were looking for a new rental when we first moved to Dallas in the summer of 2023. From the very beginning we could tell that he always had our best interests in mind when it came to finding a place to live.

So fast forward a year later when it came to buy a place of our own, we knew that Carmen would be the right choice.

Carmen is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market and he was always available to answer any and all of our questions. We felt like Carmen had our back during the whole process and we knew that he would fight to get us the best deal possible. From the inspection to option period to the appraisal to the closing, everything was seamless! 

Without reservations we recommend Carmen as your next real estate agent. You won’t be disappointed!

We’ve wanted to buy a home for a while, but these days it seemed like a daunting thought. To say we wanted a home but dreaded the process is an understatement. However, we approached our friends and family for recommendations on a real estate agent. We had several recommendations, but Carmen’s came from a friend of a family member, which was a plus for us. From our initial call, Carmen was kind, attentive to our questions, and authentic, which we appreciated. Ultimately, we decided to look no further. 

Once we started looking, thank goodness for Carmen, whose knowledge about homes, home values, and location helped us see things about houses in ways we hadn’t before. He helped us pinpoint what it was about certain properties that didn’t feel like “home.” He’d say, “We can find something better.” We are so glad we listened to his advice and genuine feedback on each house because he found us our home. 

Carmen’s support has meant everything. He demystified the home buying process for us by always answering our questions and calming any nerves we had. Trust him, because he has a plan and a strategy for every step in this process. He advocated for us. We cannot stress enough how much he cares about his clients. He always communicated with us possible outcomes and ways we could approach every scenario. His expansive network of contractors and inspectors is amazing and such a relief because this ensured the safety of our future home, which also helped during negotiations, which Carmen dealt with and navigated with ease and expertise. 

Through every step we felt well taken care of by Carmen and his team. We always felt Carmen had our backs and truly cared about us and our home! We will be recommending him to everyone. To anyone reading, Carmen is the best choice, he’s an experienced professional who genuinely connects with people. He will advocate for you and your needs. He is THE person you want on your team.

Carmen helped us buy our first house. He was very patient throughout the process, encouraging us to wait for the right home to be put on the market to ensure we would be happy in the long run..

He was honest with the quality of houses.  Always letting us know the good ones from those that were not of high quality. 
 
He was highly responsive, frequently getting back to us within minutes if we called or texted with a question. 
 
He did everything in his power to make the process as easy on us as possible. We had a complicated buying situation and Carmen helped advocate for us and navigate us through the steps that needed to be taken. We knew that Carmen wouldn’t allow other entities to take advantage of us because he had our backs. 
 
We would definitely recommend Carmen to our friends, and we look forward to continuing working with him in the future!

We were referred to Carmen by our daughter & son-in-law who had previously  purchased a home in Dallas.  

We actually started working with Carmen when we had decided to make the move from KS after a lifetime there. Carmen guided us through this entire process for 3 years until he found us the absolute perfect home! We really had no idea of where we should live but Carmen always seemed to know.  
Throughout the entire process, Carmen was always quick to return phone calls, emails & texts.  He would counsel us on homes that we thought we wanted, but would point out reasons why he felt it wasn’t for us. Carmen is never pushy or in this job for a quick sale. He is truly passionate about his work.  He knows Dallas and the suburbs so well and knew what was right for us.  
 
Carmen continues to still check in on us and provide valuable resources for our home needs. 
 
We will be forever grateful to Carmen for finding us our perfect  Dallas home.

Carmen is a complete PRO. Not only is he an expert in the Dallas metro real estate market, he became an expert in what we were looking for and helped guide us through the process in ways that resulted in a better outcome than we imagined for ourselves. He steered us away from problems we wouldn’t have noticed ourselves and when the right house became available he navigated the closing phenomenally, calling on a team of contractors, arborists, inspectors, and other professionals to ensure that 1) the property was solid and 2) we got money back for minor repairs and cleaning. We trusted Carmen so much that we closed on our house SIGHT-UNSEEN from across the country – and we couldn’t be happier to feel at home now. We’d recommend Carmen 100 times over.

Carmen DiPenti lives his Core Values:  Honesty, Integrity, Loyalty.  I became associated with Carmen and his wonderful team in 2021 at the beginning of the first of our three transactions.  I am not putting an end year (2023 purchase) given we (husband and I) will remain clients should the need arise.

Carmen was the selected realtor for my best friend, a 42-year IBM executive turned realtor upon retirement.  I calculated my friend Kathy’s intensity level and knew her positive feedback reflected the enthusiasm and dedication to craft that Carmen represented to her over several transactions past and present.  “After the Sale” newsletters and Carmen’s personal cell phone proved Loyalty in addition to Honesty and Integrity.

Our forever home had been remodeled one year prior as a forever home for a widow who unexpectedly fell in love and moved.  The remodel 40+ y.o. home came with challenges that appeared easily addressed by a plethora of qualified professionals in Carmen’s Rolodex.  From the expert inspector to plumbing and HVAC, Carmen had our backs and not only initiated the contacts but followed up, and continues to do so.

I hope I don’t have to call on Carmen’s Rolodex again but am confident Carmen will be there for me.  As a former hospital CFO and Arthur Andersen consultant I heartily endorse the professionalism and guiding principles lived by Carmen DiPenti.

When we started our first-time home-buying journey, we received multiple referrals from friends and family. Admittedly, we tried other realtors before reaching out to Carmen. Those previous realtors merely echoed our opinions without really helping us understand what we wanted in a house. On the other hand, Carmen took the time to understand our long list of desires for a home. Carmen assisted us in navigating the complex real estate conditions of the time and demonstrated remarkable patience. He attentively listened to our wants and needs, diligently ensuring that we did not settle for anything less.

Once we finally found the perfect home, Carmen called in the calvary with his network of inspectors, engineers, and contractors to truly understand the house we were about to purchase. That knowledge has proven to be invaluable. 

Carmen’s market expertise and attention to detail made our home-buying journey remarkable. He was genuinely invested in helping us find a home that met all of our needs and desires. Carmen was always available to answer our questions and provide guidance, and he helped us find the perfect home and negotiate the best possible deal for our first-time home-buying transaction.

We highly recommend Carmen to anyone looking to buy a home. He is a true professional and a pleasure to work with.

We had the pleasure of working with Carmen as our real estate agent, and we couldn’t have asked for a more dedicated and professional partner in our home-buying journey. From the very first day we met Carmen, it was evident that he was committed to making sure we found the perfect home.

One of the things that genuinely set Carmen apart was his approach. He never pressured us to settle for anything less than what we truly wanted. He had an exceptional eye for a good house and was patient in helping us explore various options until we found our dream home.

Carmen’s extensive knowledge of the real estate market and his network of resources were invaluable. His team was exceptional and made the entire process smooth and efficient.


What we appreciated most was that he had been there for us, answering all our questions, no matter how small or big they may be. His dedication to his clients is unwavering. Carmen’s support didn’t end with the closing of the deal. He checked on us after closing, and we know he is there for us if we need anything in the future. 

In the end, we couldn’t be happier with Carmen’s services. He made the process of buying a home a positive and stress-free experience. We highly recommend Carmen to anyone in need of a real estate agent who truly cares about their clients and goes above and beyond to ensure their longtime happiness. Thank you, Carmen!

Carmen has now helped me buy/sell two homes in Dallas. As an out-of-state investor, Carmen and his team handled everything both times, from staging to organizing an online notary, and I was so happy with both outcomes. Carmen is always reachable, gives great advice and cares so much about getting the best outcome for his clients. Thank you so much Carmen and team and I can’t wait to work together again!

Carmen is simply the best and only real estate agent I partner with or recommend in the DFW area. He is the most consummate professional I have met across any industry, and he surrounds himself with a network of experts that makes the real estate process complete and enjoyable. Partnering with him as a first time home buyer and then as a first time home seller, Carmen works fast, thoroughly, and walks you through each step of the process with compelling data and insightful perspective. He is a tireless advocate for his client, and those I’ve recommended and I have remarked that when working with Carmen, we feel as if we were his only client, even though we know his workload spans the metroplex and beyond.

I cannot say enough good things about Carmen and his team. Working with him puts you in the best of hands and relieves a tremendous burden from what could be an otherwise stressful time. Thank yourself later and reach out to him now – you too will be singing his praises to anyone and everyone with a DFW real estate need.

Carmen and Frances are the best. My wife and I first met Carmen when he helped us buy a condo in downtown Dallas. We thought we might want a house so he set up a search for us and stayed in touch. His search turned up the perfect house 8 month later. No detail is too small for his attention. He even found someone to take an extra washer and dryer I had. Highly recommend!

Carmen knocked it out of the park in a really tough market with all of the factors working against us – low inventory, high prices, and high interest rates. Thanks to Carmen, I ended up getting a fantastic place off-market in exactly the neighborhood I wanted to be in and at a great price! I really could not imagine a better result.  With Carmen as my agent, I knew I had someone very solidly in my corner from start to finish.  At the outset, he really listened to me and understood what I was looking for, and then worked hard to deliver the outcome he knew I wanted. He was always patient and never pushy.  It’s abundantly clear that he knows the Dallas market at a granular level, including the history of individual neighborhoods, which meant he provided me with relevant advice and great perspective when selecting properties. When it came to negotiating the contract, Carmen was a zealous advocate for me. You can tell he has the respect of other agents, earned through his professionalism.  I’ve bought and sold homes before, but this was my first time working with Carmen and it was the easiest, most stress-free experience.

Carmen has been an amazing agent for this first time home buyer! He made the entire purchasing process clear and smooth from beginning to end. He also spent extra time teaching me everything I wanted to know, from what to look for when touring a property, to describing in detail each point of the offer contracts that we submitted. Carmen also has a deep network of expert professionals who I have and will continue to rely on for future upgrades to my home. I have already recommended him to friends of mine who will be entering the market for the first time and I will absolutely be using him for my future real-estate endeavors going forward. He has become a friend and someone I trust deeply.

As a first time home buyer, I could not have felt more supported and comfortable than with Carmen as my agent. Not only was he very knowledgeable about the Dallas area, but he was always available to answer questions and alleviate any concerns I had. I trust his advice implicitly and appreciate the complete honesty he had during the entire process. I will continue to use Carmen for any future home purchases and would refer him to anyone else that is looking.

Carmen and Frances were incredible in helping us understand and navigate the homebuying process. As first time homebuyers who are not originally from the area, their deep experience in the market and ability to recognize quality across all the various aspects (location, building quality, upkeep, schools, etc.) was absolutely pivotal in helping us determine the best neighborhood and ultimately find our dream home at a great price. I am certain that without Carmen and his team we would have never been able to move as confidently as we did – from his expertise in navigating the buying, inspection, closing, and all other processes to his well-regarded reputation in the market, each and every piece was needed and we are thankful for it.

 

Carmen truly sees the long term value in relationships with his clients; we never felt pressured to see a house or put in an offer, in fact he was always the levelheaded part of our decisions and helped us navigate the highs and lows of home buying. We will fully recommend Carmen to anybody that we come across who now or in the future may be looking for a realtor in Dallas –  Carmen and his team are highly professional, incredibly knowledgeable and detailed, and helped us stay on course and in control of every

Carmen and his team are experienced realtors that are knowledgeable of the current housing market. His expertise made the stressful housing market a breeze. Due to his relentless work ethics I am walking into a home with a significant amount of equity, which is unheard of in the market. His personal touch and ethics gained my trust early on in the process. His philosophy of real estate is more than just matching a client with a property but more of finding a solid investment that feels like home. He studied my style of home and went to work. His ability to learn the client’s personal needs gave him the ability to screen houses that I would not prefer. Carmen worked with my lender to ensure that I was completely comfortable and all fees were transparent. Their relationship gained the trust of the seller by making all parties feel at ease. He over communicates the next steps so I didn’t experience any surprises. My connection to Carmen has afforded me a beautiful home that my and I will enjoy for years to come. I have purchased several homes in the past but Carmen’s methodologies are proven and can support clients of all economic levels. He is fair, firm, and consistent and I strongly recommend him.

Carmen was referred to us by a friend of ours and we are so glad he was! He was so helpful to us as first-time homebuyers and walked us through every step of the process. It really couldn’t have gone any more smoothly. We really appreciated Carmen’s dedication and responsiveness. He was always very honest with us about his thoughts on potential homes, and was very proactive, even making sure we were prepared for things like turning on utilities and working with the HOA. We would definitely recommend him to anyone

Carmen went above and beyond to help me secure my home. His expertise and knowledge of the market led to him finding the perfect home for my situation in an ideal location. In addition to that, he simplified the buying process more than any realtor I’ve worked with. Never have I been less stressed about a home closing than when I worked with Carmen.
 
P.S. – His colleague Frances is top-notch as well. She assisted with the entire process and helped things run smoothly throughout. All around a great team!

Carmen helped me buy the home of my dreams! Carmen is extremely responsive, and he understands the DFW marketplace. He kept me informed every step of the way, and overall made the experience enjoyable. He took all of the stress away! Frances is just as fantastic – they make a great team together. I would one-thousand percent recommend them to my friends and family!

Carmen is an excellent agent. He brings the perfect combination of warmth and professionalism into his work. Carmen was able to get me multiple offers and I accepted an offer above asking price. I wouldn’t have been able to get such a great offer without his hard work and attention to detail. Whenever I needed a recommendation for a maintenance person or a cleaner, he had one readily available. He surrounds himself with the best team, especially Frances. Not to mention, my dog loved Carmen. I would absolutely recommend him to any friend or family member

Carmen and his team do not quit. He was patient, yet persistent with finding the right home for me. In a turbulent market, he found calmer buying opportunities for me. Carmen was there for me every step of the way and found coverage when he was out of town so that I never missed a walkthrough of a property that I was interested in. As a first time home buyer, he helped me understand the entire process up through getting the keys, and after the fact.

Carmen is an outstanding realtor that will attack any challenge that you are faced with in ALL aspects of the home buying process. From the initial offer, inspection, loan transaction, appraisal, and closing, Carmen took every discussion and negotiation very seriously. No detail was left out and every ounce of energy was used when it came to negotiating for the best price, savings, or deal. When I decided to submit an offer in a very competitive area of Dallas, Carmen first helped draft an extremely strong offer and then maintained close contact with the Seller’s agent even when the house went back on the market. Due to his dedication in agent relationships and staying on top of the market, I was able to land a condo right off the Katy trail in Dallas. 

With this being my first home purchase, Carmen coached me through the entire transaction and would take the extra amount of time to explain all the intricacies of the contract, prepare me for future negotiations, paperwork or other decisions that would need to be made. This level of service and communication along with being extremely organized and responsive is just some of the qualities that both Carmen and Frances provided which set their team apart in the industry. Carmen kept me at ease during what is often considered a very long and difficult process and I truly enjoyed working with him and highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. Carmen was originally referred to me by multiple friends in DFW that have had wonderful experiences of buying and selling houses with him, and as they say – the best kind of business experiences come from referrals.

I feel like I won the lottery when Carmen was recommended to me by a friend. His laid back, authentic communication style was a great fit for me, and I always felt like he had my back. Even when negotiations got tough, his expert representation gave me the assurance that everything was being handled well and in my best interest. His whole team was first rate from start to finish. In the end, I got my dream place, and he was even able to steer me in the right direction for starting my remodel. I would highly recommend Carmen and his team for any real estate transaction.

I highly recommend Carmen DiPenti for any real estate transaction. I recently purchased my first home and he made it as seamless and easy as possible. He showed a high level of expertise and attention to detail, which allowed me to feel at ease and comfortable that he was in control of the entire process. His negotiation skills were impressive as he was able to arrange for all the major repairs, and even minor ones, to be made by the owner and finished in a timely manner. He responded to all of my questions and inquiries immediately whether they were important or not so important. I never knew how busy he was because he made me feel like I was his only client. Carmen displayed honesty and integrity and my experience working with him was nothing short of extraordinary. Whether you are an experienced buyer or it’s your first home, you will be in excellent hands.

Carmen helped us buy our very first home in 2015. We had less than a day to see the home and make an offer. We weren’t familiar with the neighborhood, but Carmen gave us the information we needed and we took the plunge. We ended up in the most amazing location, and were incredibly happy with the home and Carmen’s work as our agent. I know for a fact that his relationship with the seller’s agent and his relentless work were the only reasons we beat 5 other offers (including one all cash).
 
When we were ready to buy our second home we had a long list of demands. For over 5 years Carmen showed us dozens of homes without complaint or pressure. He responds to communication immediately, day or night. When we saw the listing for our second house, we were on vacation. By that time, Carmen knew our taste and needs so intimately that we were completely comfortable with him viewing the home on our behalf. Once again, his reputation and relationships with other agents won us our home. In the crazy 2021 market we beat a cash offer and paid under asking. 
 
Naturally, we turned to Carmen to sell our first home and we had offers over asking on the first day. I was so impressed by the amount of work Carmen put into preparing our listing. From planning, staging, photos, and marketing, he had every base covered. It’s very stressful to buy and sell a house at the same time, but I knew we could trust Carmen and rely on his professional experience. At the end of the entire process, I realized that Carmen’s advocacy in 2015 had the single biggest impact on our family’s financial success. Our first home was the best financial investment we’ve ever made, and the profits from that transaction paid for the remodel of our new house.
 
Most importantly, Carmen values family, relationships, and people. He will fight hard for you as a client, but he treats everyone with respect. Carmen’s integrity and grounded values are the reasons we’ve trusted him to guide us again and again through these life-altering transactions. We can’t recommend him highly enough, and are happy to call him a friend!.

Carmen is by far the best realtor I have ever used.  This was the 8th house we have sold, so we are very familiar with the process.  My husband and I feel very fortunate to have worked with Carmen DiPenti because this sales experience has been unlike any we have had before.  None of the other realtors we had used spent even a fraction of the time with us that Carmen did.  From the very first visit to after the sale and beyond.  Carmen was honest, detail oriented and willing to push up his sleeves and help with anything we needed.   

Starting with the first meeting at our house, Carmen knew exactly how to get the house ready and stage it perfectly for it to show like a model home.  Every room was discussed and arranged just so.  I welcomed the advice and the help because I wanted my house to sell quickly, and it did.

Due to his advice, attention to detail, and his expertise in knowing the best time of day to photograph our house, the advertising pictures were stunning.  Everything was perfect and so many people were interested.  We were under contract within a few days and the rest is history.

Carmen was extremely hard working, never pushy, always available, and completely willing to give us any amount of his time that we needed.  He has become a friend as well as a realtor and we definitely will be calling him in the future if need be as well as highly recommending him to all my friends and family!

When I say that I was anxious about starting the process of selling my house, I mean I was in full shut-down-crawl-under-the-covers-act-like-my-relocation-isn’t-actually-happening mode. However, thank goodness a couple of friends urged me to give Carmen a call.

He came over and was oozing genuine excitement to help me get out from under this house and onto my next big risk. Before he left that day I knew I had to pick him over the other realtors that I had talked to earlier in the week. Carmen is passionate and serious about his craft. He pays attention to the details so much so that when he walked into the house he immediately knew my living room paint color and what lighting makes it look best. He gave me a detailed, personalized list of items that I could do to enhance my home selling experience as well as coordinated amazing help for getting all of these things done with a very quick turnaround. We listed within a week, sold on Monday, and closed that Friday. It was truly amazing.

Carmen and his team gave me their undivided attention and support through this process and empowered me during this time that I had melted into a scattered ball of anxiety. If I didn’t have them to lead me through this process, you could likely find me still hiding under the covers and ignoring the inevitable. They are all incredibly authentic, professional, and personal. They have a knack for reading people which they use to provide a personalized service while going above and beyond the call of duty because they genuinely care. This team is clearly known for their integrity and pure excellence, and are really the only logical choice to buy or sell your next home.

Thank you, Carmen, Frances, and team, for guiding me through this process! I sincerely could not have done it without you all.

Buying and finding a home at the top of the Dallas market was quite the process. As an experienced investor of real estate in the Southern California market, I wasn’t expecting the same level of demand in Texas. After a trial with an agent that assisted me with three all cash offers that were not accepted, I quickly realized that I needed to partner with a top real estate agent that was experienced and connected to the community that I was targeting.

That is when I was introduced to Carmen Dipenti. Our first conversation was extremely enlightening. He explained to me his knowledge of the market; plus, his personal experience with the different areas that I was targeting. I appreciated his honesty and straight-forward attitude on steering me away from neighborhoods with crime issues and depreciation potential. This was exactly the qualities I needed to form a long-term relationship for investing in this market.

Upon finding my first property to actively pursue with Carmen as my agent, he made the connections with the sellers agent immediately. We agreed on submitting an offer after careful consideration and research. Our offer was accepted and the deal was in full swing. Carmen handled every aspect from start to finish. He went the extra mile with a plumbing issue that happened right before closing. He represented us with a level of customer service that is hard to find these days. Needless to say, we found our partner in real estate moving forward from here on out. We cannot wait to find another investment with Carmen leading the way. Carmen and his team are amazing and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a property.

Carmen is the most dedicated agent in the DFW real estate market. He was referred to me by a friend. She spoke high praises of his hard work and representation. Needless to say, my friend was right! I am so glad that Carmen represented my best interests in selling and purchasing of a home.

Even during the pandemic, Carmen pushed harder and harder to get the best buyer for my property. He was dedicated around the clock to represent the value my home had to offer. His attention to detail was very apparent in the marketing of my home. Through his connections in the market, he brought in the very right buyers. All negotiations, transactions were handled in the most professional manner. The purchaser of my home is very happy.

I have never come across a person so passionate about their work. Carmen is the best agent in Dallas region.

Carmen, aligned the sale of my home with the purchase of a new home for me. He went to bat, to get me a fair value for the home I wanted. During peak demand, Carmen negotiated and closed on the new home for me, He connected me with professionals in the market for opinions. He really has a solid network for individuals who trust him and are willing to help his clients.

I am very happy with the results of selling and buying a home. All of the credit is due to Carmen for his persistence, dedication and hard work. His work ethic and standards are outstanding. I got to know Carmen through business and today I am proud to call him a friend.

Honestly, there is no one better to represent your best interest in the real estate market than Carmen. I hope all future buyers and sellers will be elevated to the experience; Carmen has to offer.

I always like to think of Carmen as the James Bond of real estate. He’s top of his class, always well spoken, well mannered, a gentleman in every sense of the word. He’s also incredibly detailed, follows thru on every job and always delivers what’s promised no matter how many obstacles or challenges he endures along the way.

Carmen is incredibly personable, easy to talk to and always goes the extra mile in making sure the client feels completely at ease. He’s always up for cool locations or listings and never misses an opportunity to show a house that you are interested in…even if he knows its not right. That’s because he will not settle for anything less than the best.

Carmen is also incredibly patient – he knows that its not about the destination but the journey to get there. I can personally attest to this – because having been a friend to Carmen for 15 years, a client for 7 and someone looking for a house for 5, dealing with me is much like James Bond dealing with Goldfinger – high maintenance, opinionated and throwing curve balls left and right. However, you know how the story goes…

And much like 007, Carmen is also incredibly well respected among his peers in the field. Which only helps the client when networking and searching for new listings, off market opportunities and easy closing negotiations.

And where would James Bond be without Q? Well, look no further than to Frances. Aside from being an amazing real estate agent herself, she has an uncanny knack of dissecting each listing. With her indomitable triple finger tap on any floor, tub, countertop or wall – she can tell you what’s real, fake, decent or just really bad. Its like the best gadget 007 can have and just can’t be beat. And much like Q, Frances excels at thinking ahead and helps make sure that any closing with Carmen goes without a hitch. The partnership between the two of them could be said in one phrase – a seamless experience.

So – aside from not being British (yet Italian) or apart of MI5, don’t hesitate – Camen DiPenti is the man for the job.

You won’t regret it. I certainly don’t.”

Carmen DiPenti is far more than a realtor: he is my trusted advisor on how to lay the foundation for my family’s future; he just happens to work in real estate. I have never worked with any professional who works harder to not only deliver results … but to understand the deeper why that drives me. He understands that a house is more than a building and he intuitively understands how to align properties with my often-changing priorities.

I have used Carmen four or five times over the course of my family’s journey, buying and selling multiple homes (some of which had multiple uses outside of being a place to live). In every case, he supported me through even the tiniest details of the transactions. And he has remain involved as small issues arose after the sale, doing everything from recommending furniture to helping me find the right contractors.

He is my agent for life and, even better, my friend. I could not recommend a single professional more strong than Carmen DiPenti.

As a real estate investor, working with a like-minded agent who understands your needs is crucial. I worked with Carmen and his team on the purchase of two houses and I always felt an enormous support during the entire process. He will be in the trenches with you fighting the same fight. I trust him, and his excellency in delivering results speaks for itself. I highly recommend Carmen and his team whether you are an investor or first-time buyer. He will get things done!

Being new to the Dallas market, and busy with careers, it was most important that we found a realtor who could make home buying simple and efficient. We wanted to find someone who knew the market well and could take the hassle out of the homebuying process. We could not have been more pleased with Carmen DiPenti.

Carmen takes the time to really listen and understand the needs of his clients. He will always put the client’s interests ahead of his own while being completely candid and transparent. Carmen has the honesty and integrity you want in a realtor. If there are areas of concern or he has any hesitancy at all about a home, he will not be shy about bringing it to your attention. It is hard to imagine anyone more passionate and driven to find the perfect fit for a client.

There are a ton of moving parts to a real estate transaction but Carmen makes the process simple and enjoyable. He was with us from start to finish and every step along the way. We highly recommend Carmen and look forward to working with him again in the future.

I first met Carmen 6 years ago when he helped my parents find a rental property in Dallas. My parents were from out of town at the time, so it was important they found a realtor with knowledge of the area and whom they trusted to be their eyes/ears. He exceeded their expectations and Carmen is now my family’s go-to guy for all things real estate. Since then, Carmen has helped me and my husband buy our first home AND my brother buy his first home in the M-streets.

Being a first-time homebuyer in this crazy market, I can honestly say we could not have done it without Carmen! My husband and I had very little knowledge of the home-buying process and we asked A LOT of questions.

Carmen does an excellent job at making sure buyers understand the process, stay on top of deadlines and make smart decisions. He also knows a lot of people and has a connection for everything you might need pre-post purchase. We highly recommend Carmen!

Carmen DiPenti is truly the consummate real estate professional.  His knowledge of the marketplace, strong work ethic, responsiveness, high energy level, and eagerness to exceed his clients’ expectations clearly put him in a league all his own.

Using advanced technology, he marketed my downtown Dallas condo in such a way to differentiate it from others.  His efforts yielded a beautiful presentation of the amenities of the condo, building and surrounding areas, generating interest from buyers in not only the property for sale but also the “lifestyle” of living in the city center.  Carmen also showcased the property with impressive high quality website and 3D virtual tours, measuring internet activity with statistical data.  Having bought and sold many properties, Carmen’s expansive marketing was unparalleled! 

Carmen is a good listener, highly attentive to his clients, dedicated, and results driven.  He is an excellent communicator and eager to ask for feedback in an effort to continuously improve “the client experience”.

Above all, he’s got a cool vibe!  He’s the guy you want by your side, on your team, and at your table.  I can’t say enough about how impressive he is … in a laidback, down home, kind of way.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED … Carmen DiPenti, and his associate, Frances!   You will not be disappointed.

Carmen excels at every aspect of the real estate business.When I started working with Carmen I was a first time homebuyer and was new to the world of owning real estate.Carmen was thoughtful, patient, and responsive as he led me through the process of buying a home. He helped me find a good condo while connecting with a competent team that made closing a breeze.

While owning the condo Carmen was a frequent resource helping me find trustworthy  contractors and informed me of  important deadlines while reminding me to keep up with basic maintenance to maintain and improve the value of my home over time.

When it came time to sell my condo Carmen went above and beyond and convinced me to trust his expertise and experience. We ended up painting, making minor updates, and staging the home and ended up selling the condo well above my expectations. He even went out of his way to connect me with a competent team in the city in which I moved.

I would without a doubt recommend Carmen to anyone who is interested in buying a home in Dallas.

Carmen DiPenti is a reliable professional who will do everything he can to get you exactly what you want. My wife and I recently purchased and sold a home with him and recommend his services highly. His real estate expertise helped us get through the process quickly and well informed.

When showing homes, Carmen does a phenomenal job of seeking out issues that a buyer needs to know about. He will get a great understanding of what you are looking for and help you avoid properties that do not align with your needs. In a situation with multiple offers we were able to count on Carmen to ensure we got our dream home. Throughout the home buying process, he was there every step of the way with prompt communication and solutions to every problem.

Before selling our home with Carmen he gave us a long list of items we needed to do in order to maximize the value. It was clear his main goal was ensuring we got the most money possible from the sale. The staging company he brought in did an incredible job and helped our home sell for far more than we ever thought possible.

Even now Carmen is someone I can call on for help. He is someone who understands how to make a connection with people and treat them like more than a client. We had a few small issues after moving into our new home and Carmen was there to help us deal with the home warranty company. On moving day he was nice enough to send us a few pizzas to keep us going. He went above and beyond for us every step of the way. You will not regret working with him.

A few years ago we had a bumpy first time home buying experience with another realty group and were shortly after given Carmen’s business card from someone with glowing recommendations. While we weren’t in the market at the time, we held on to it and are so thankful that we did when trying to buy and sell in the 2021 market. From the beginning he was very knowledgable, attentive, welcoming, and eager to assist us in any way possible. This meant coaching us on prepping our home for sale to visiting an embarrassingly high number of houses to ensure that we found a home that we could potentially live in for decades. He is truly unique and genuine in not trying to “just sell you a house” and is very honest in details that could impact the resale value or whether we would outgrow our home too soon. We never felt rushed during the experience and truly believe Carmen had our best interests in mind. Carmen far exceeded our expectations and we would absolutely recommend him to any one of our friends or family.

David & Jenifer Shinpaugh

As first-time home buyers in a competitive market, we knew we wanted to work with someone we could trust to give us honest opinions and valuable insight. We were new to the process and looking for a lot of guidance when it came to neighborhoods, floor plans, lenders, inspections, etc. Throughout our home-buying process with Carmen and his team, we were never lacking answers.

Carmen heard us and understood exactly what we were looking for and was always candid and transparent- which we greatly appreciated and helped our decision-making process. We always had an endless list of questions for him, none of which were unanswered. We knew that when our offer was accepted, there were still quite a few hurdles to jump through to get to closing. But they never felt like hurdles in the end because Carmen and his team made the process extremely efficient and seamless. He helped us navigate the inspection and appraisal process to get us to an amazing end point.

We are very proud of our first home, which we could not have secured without the help of Carmen and his team. We know we have a trusted ally as we continue in our new home process and lean on his endless list of resources. We look forward to working with Carmen again for many years to come, and have (and will continue to) enthusiastically refer him to anyone we know that is entering the buying/selling process.

It is my sincere pleasure to recommend Carmen DiPenti as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home, in this crazy market now more than ever. We were comfortable in our small one-bedroom apartment until COVID-19 forced everyone to start working from home. We were still fine for a while working in the kitchen and dining room, but at a certain point we just needed more space.

Carmen listened to our needs regarding our specific needs and preferences, and desired area, as well as our budgetary limitations.  He immediately gave us access to the portal and added me to a mailing list for homes that fit all of my individual criteria.  He did not waste our time with homes that were out of our price range or not in line with our needs.

A master with the contract negotiations, Carmen came up with a deal that was good for us, that the seller was willing to accept.  His recommendation for an inspector was extremely valuable as well, and I feel like throughout the negotiations he fought harder for me than I was fighting myself.  I wouldn’t dare have anyone but Carmen represent me.

We found Carmen to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were his only clients, although we know that was not the case. He was hyper attentive and supporting throughout the entire process before, during, and even after the sale. We never felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality.  I have already recommended Carmen to one of my friends who was looking to purchase and would strongly recommend him to anyone else in DFW.  Carmen can’t be beat!

Carmen DiPenti and his colleagues, especially Frances, at Compass are terrific at what they do.  Carmen recently arranged to sell our condo before it was even listed and at full ask price.  Carmen was able to leverage his experience and contacts within the marketplace to find a ready, willing, and able buyer.  From deciding to sell through the consummation of the sale contract, Carmen patiently answered questions and provided thoughtful and really helpful advice.  For instance, he gave great advice on how we could work with our tenants as we transitioned to readying the condo for sale.  When an unexpected repair issue just before sale, Carmen researched the options and piloted the resolution.  He made the entire process so much less daunting that it otherwise might have been.  We are really grateful that our friends told us about Carmen after they had such a smooth experience with him selling their home over three years ago.  Carmen is very good at what he does.

Tom and I met Carmen at an open house one day about 7 years ago. We had been looking to downsize and move closer to the city. When we met Carmen and chatted for quite a while, we realized how dedicated he was to his clients. We decided to use Carmen as the realtor to sell our house in the Lake Highlands Area.

Carmen did a great job, particularly from a communications standpoint and following up on details. While he demonstrated professionalism, he was also very caring and personable. We did decide to lease a condo but always kept Carmen on our minds.

Now today, six years of living in a condo we decided to purchase a town home in a different neighborhood and needed more space particularly for grandchildren. No hesitation on our part to engage Carmen! As usual, it has been a great experience, particularly in todays market. He and his assistant Frances took care of basically everything and made our job much easier!

I have referred Carmen in the past and will continue to refer him to friends or family that might be needing his services. Once you meet Carmen—you will be hooked and not regret your choice for an amazing realtor.

When we met Carmen we were in the 13th month of unsuccessful house hunting, we were so tired and leery of working with another “agent”. After a productive, uplifting conversation with Carmen, we knew we were in good hands. Carmen is one of a kind, and definitely on top of his game. He is thoughtful and gets to know his clients so that he may provide them with fitting properties to view. He is always on point and truly listens to what you have to say.

Meeting & working with Carmen was one of the best decisions we made. He is absolutely the most genuine, honest, hardest working agent in the city. In the shortest amount of time we found the perfect home. He walked us through each step throughly and informed us of what was going on at every turn. He and his team set up the easiest timeline in their client portal with dates and deadlines to remember. He & his team also offer dependable contacts for everything, from Home Warranty to Repair Services to Housekeepers, they cover all the bases.

Carmen is someone you can depend on and makes home buying joyful. He and his team are knowledgeable and always on point to answer any question or concern. Not to mention his email newsletters are on point, offering current real estate facts, ideas, and fun places to grab a bite.

We will always recommend the DiPenti Team to anyone in need of a fabulous agent.

We got to know Carmen while visiting several of open houses in his portfolio over the years.  He always seemed to be the perfect blend of likable and professional.  The more we talked to him, his expertise and passion for real estate really impressed.  When it came time for us to put our own home on the market, we definitely wanted to partner with Carmen.  That turned out to be a very good decision.

While we’ve bought and sold several houses over the years, working with Carmen exceeded our previous experiences and expectations for the sale. We relied on him to set a sale priced based on his experience, which turned out to be quite a bit higher than our own thoughts of the market.  Supported with exceptional professional photography, Carmen worked hard on creating a compelling marketing story with thoughtful and strategic descriptions showcasing all the home’s features and upgrades.

We teased Carmen that he’s the James Brown of Real Estate – the hardest working man in the business.  He worked through three different buyers and their agents, trying to close on accepted contracts in very difficult market and financial conditions during this Pandemic.  We trusted him completely.  Through his expertise and hard work it resulted in a sale slightly above list price!  Carmen absolutely earned our highest recommendation.

Robb & Aimee Hicks

My family and I have now trusted Carmen to lead us through the journey of selling and buying twice.  We hope to not move again for a very long time but if we do he will be our choice the third time around as well.

He was very patient and helped us as we looked at multiple houses and explored several different neighborhoods.  Then after all of this we decided to switch gears and build!  Carmen didn’t miss a beat.  He became our go between with the builder, helped us make decisions that could potentially impact resale value in the future and in general was there to support us in any way we needed.

He also helped us get above market value for the home we were in and he and his team helped us find a nice interim place to live while the home was being built.

We cannot think of anybody else that we would rather work with.  Carmen and his team are second to none.  Not only is he our agent but we also consider him a friend.

Working with Carmen was wonderful as he gave us incredible insight and guidance as we were buying our first home. He was consistent and supportive, always taking time to answer any questions we had no matter the time of the day, showing his drive, passion, and respect for his clients. He always went above and beyond for us, and his knowledge and experience were invaluable for helping us navigate the difficult terrain of finding and purchasing our first home!

There is no one out there who works harder, gives more to their clients, or is as helpful and honest as Carmen Dipenti. His keen eye and depth of knowledge during the home buying process helped us at every turn and his reassurance helped keep us at ease during a stressful time. Working with him was also fun and enjoyable since he had such a deep understanding of what we liked, what we wanted, and our future goals as a family.

I would absolutely recommend Carmen to anyone looking for a fantastic realtor who was invaluable throughout the entire home buying process and have already recommended him to friends and family!

My wife and I have worked with Carmen as both buyers and sellers, and there are myriad reasons we’ve continued the relationship.  Above all,  Carmen is the consummate professional.  He knows his market, is great with his communication, and is confident in his ability to provide the best product.  The buying and selling process is one of the more challenging ventures people can undertake, but Carmen makes it much easier with his approach.  More than anything, the best compliment we can give Carmen is that we wouldn’t hesitate for a second to refer or recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.

Luke & Liesl Hlavacek

Carmen made me feel like I was his only and most important customer at all times. He made me feel at ease during a very stressful time and coached me through every step of the way. I felt he genuinely wanted to take care of me and had my best interest in mind. 10/10 I would recommend a family member or friend to work with Carmen.

CJ Billera

If you’re thinking about buying a house, you should get Carmen on your side.  His dedication and knowledge got us a house that we still can’t believe is our own.  His availability allowed us to be the most competitive in a very competitive market, many times viewing houses the first night they were available.  Carmen’s flexibility made the demanding and stressful process of buying a house manageable; we never felt like we were overwhelmed by any part of the process.  Not only is Carmen an astute professional, he also has a network of others who clearly value their quality of service.  This allowed us to have an end-to-end seamless experience for the multitude of inspectors, financiers, and other individuals that were required.  We absolutely would and already do recommend Carmen to our friends and family.

Kyle Stanley & Jessica Lesser

I felt I was on to someone I could trust the minute I met Carmen at a random open house… the way he communicated and his expertise and knowledge of the market quickly became apparent.  He proved himself invaluable once I had communicated what we were looking for.  When he got back to me with an idea or opportunity, he listened well and helped me an my wife consider the opportunity and refine our focus.  Ultimately, he helped us find and purchase exactly what we had hoped for and gave us the confidence to move quickly and negotiate a “win/win” for us and the Seller.  I look forward to recommending Carmen and his team’s services to friends and family in the future.

Working with Carmen was an absolute joy.  We were initially trying to find a house that checked all our boxes but there was nothing out there that we could see ourselves purchasing. We eventually settled on a plot in our desired location to build a home. My husband a I were extremely nervous about the whole process as this was unfamiliar territory to us.

However Carmen literally held our hand through the whole process. He attended every single meeting we had with our Architect/Builder.  Now this is something he really didn’t need to do. It was a great security blanket to have him there, as we trusted him implicitly. He sought out answers to all our silly questions and even took it upon himself to communicate with the builder. So we really Thank you for that.

Carmen also managed to sell our home during the COVID 19 pandemic! Again, my husband and I were both nervous during this time period, but Carmen reassured us that there would still be buyers out there.   He was right yet again and we had a very smooth transaction with our buyers.

If you have the pleasure of working with Carmen, he will make the whole process as stress free as he possibly can.I particularly loved the fact that we were able to contact him any day and at ridiculous hours of the evening. He goes out of his way to let you know he’s there for you.

We would definitely without a shadow of a doubt turn to Carmen again if we need his services in the future.

And we would most certainly be recommending him to our friends.

Being a first time home buyer, during Covid, I was very nervous. The world seemed to be completely shut down and I felt so lost in the process. Carmen came in and shined a light on what was best for me. He seamlessly guided me through one of the biggest decisions I’ve ever made. Not only is Carmen incredibly knowledgeable but he is also compassionate. Carmen took his time and patience to make sure I received everything I needed. Thank you Carmen, you are the best!!!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Carmen for the purchase of my new condo in Preston Hollow. Carmen’s display of professionalism and knowledge during the homebuying process was invaluable. I live out of state and due to Covid restrictions I was unable to travel to Texas. It was reassuring to have a realtor with Carmen is expertise. His attention to detail me the remote transaction effortless. I would highly recommend Carmen.

Carmen is our go to for all real estate needs and questions (Home buying/selling, leasing, and land). Recently Carmen sold our house in Argyle in one week. He is knowledgeable, dependable and his attention to detail is incredible. You won’t find a better agent. Thank you Carmen for everything.

Mark & Elisa Waugh

My husband and I have used Carmen for 4 transactions thus far (one buy, two sells, and a lease). He is our realtor for life. There are some people who are good at details and organization, but may fall short on the communication or “people” side of things. Then there are some who are good with the people and customer service, but may lack in attention to details or the cumbersome paperwork side of real estate. Carmen is rare in that he embodies both sides of the coin. Real estate can be a stressful process as a client- its a large monetary transaction, complicated with lots of moving parts, and often has many natural bumps along the way. Carmen strives to make sure his people don’t feel any of this and has been successful 4 times out of 4 for us.  We need to come up with a new word other than “recommendation,” as it really doesn’t convey how much we would love others to experience him for themselves. He has our absolute highest recommendation. Please feel free to reach out to me if you’d like to discuss our experience(s) with him and his Team, or would like to go over specific examples.

Robb & Scott Sames

Carmen helped us buy our first house and we can’t recommend him enough! He made the whole buying process so much better for us and was very enjoyable to work with. If you’re looking for someone extremely honest, hardworking, and reliable, this is your realtor. We can’t wait to work with him again in the future, and we will definitely be recommending him to our family and friends.

Carmen is truly a master of his craft, and I would most certainly recommend his services to anyone in need of an expert real estate professional. He helped my wife and I purchase our new home and sell our old home. Both processes went seamlessly thanks to Carmen’s experience and guidance.

Real estate contracts can be quite complicated, but with Carmen on our side, he explained every detail to ensure tactful negotiations and that the client (us) received the best value. His meticulous attention to detail gives him a thorough understanding of the fine print of every deal, which gave us tremendous peace of mind, both as a buyer and as a seller.

Additionally, Carmen was fantastic to work with and is quick to pick up a call or respond to a text at any hour of the day. Carmen is sharp and personable, and after working together, I consider him a friend.

I don’t even know where to start with Carmen. After a break up and in dire need of a new place as soon as possible, Carmen was there to immediately get the ball rolling, showing me houses that week. In this market, a good realtor is a necessity. Carmen is not just a good realtor but the best out there. He went way out of his way to make sure I got into houses I wanted to see, was very upfront on repairs and any items he believed would cause issues down the road and also to note the positive items I would have missed. I truly believe the reason I was able to get the house of my dreams is because of all his work in the background. When the appraisal can back $15,000 under offer, he took it on himself to review comps and build supporting documentation for the selling price. In the end the appraisal came back at bid and saved me a large amount of money. If you want the best, look no further than Carmen.

Carmen is the most dedicated agent in the DFW real estate market. He was referred to me by a friend. She spoke high praises of his hard work and representation. Needless to say, my friend was right! I am so glad that Carmen represented my best interests in selling and purchasing of a home.

Even during the pandemic, Carmen pushed harder and harder to get the best buyer for my property. He was dedicated around the clock to represent the value my home had to offer. His attention to detail was very apparent in the marketing of my home. Through his connections in the market, he brought in the very right buyers. All negotiations, transactions were handled in the most professional manner. The purchaser of my home is very happy. 

I have never come across a person so passionate about their work. Carmen is the best agent in Dallas region. 

Carmen, aligned the sale of my home with the purchase of a new home for me. He went to bat, to get me a fair value for the home I wanted. During peak demand, Carmen negotiated and closed on the new home for me, He connected me with professionals in the market for opinions. He really has a solid network for individuals who trust him and are willing to help his clients. 

I am very happy with the results of selling and buying a home. All of the credit is due to Carmen for his persistence, dedication and hard work. His work ethic and standards are outstanding. I got to know Carmen through business and today I am proud to call him a friend.

Honestly, there is no one better to represent your best interest in the real estate market than Carmen. I hope all future buyers and sellers will be elevated to the experience; Carmen has to offer.

My husband and I met Carmen at a showing, pre-pandemic. He worked diligently with us over the course of a year to identify exactly what we wanted in a new home and exactly we needed to do to sell our previous home quickly and at the best value the market had to offer. He was also very sensitive to our personal needs as we were buying and selling during the pandemic with an immunocompromised child in the household. He is a consummate professional that operates with a degree of skill, integrity and compassion that is rare in a hot housing market like Dallas. We highly recommend him and look forward to working with him in the future.

We had the good fortune of meeting Carmen almost seven years ago while he was conducting an Open House. We initially partnered with him to search for a house for our college kids, which turned out to be a wise decision. Flash forward seven years as we recently completed our family’s fourth real estate transaction working together (three buys, one sell).

Carmen is an exemplary professional with his integrity, work ethic, patience, and dogged pursuit of providing the ultimate experience for the customer second to none. Furthermore, he is a wonderful, extremely kind person and we are proud to consider him our friend and honorary family member. We give him our highest possible recommendation.

Hello to all who read this,

I felt it necessary and at the risk of sounding dramatic, morally required to communicate and appreciate all that CARMEN DIPENTI accomplished for my household and I while we were purchasing a home. It was my first home purchase, and as overwhelming as that can be, CARMEN made my family and I exceptionally comfortable. Educating, leading, advocating or just a few words to describe the overwhelmingly positive experience we had with using CARMEN as our realtor.

My family and I had attempted to use several other realtors prior to selecting CARMEN and after a brief interaction with him I knew unequivocally this guy was in our corner. Again at the risk of sounding melodramatic, if you’re looking to purchase or sell your home and you were looking for a realtor who is personable, punctual, educated, experienced, coachable, knowledgeable, extremely hard working and ultimately someone who has your best interest at heart. Then CARMEN DIPENTI is the realtor for you.

My household and I went from windowshopping homes on Zillow in Southern California to living in our newly purchased home In less than six weeks, and a massive thank you goes to CARMEN. We could not have done it without you, thank you.

Joshua Rael

You should work with Carmen over any other agent is based on 5 key strengths that differentiate him from most real estate professionals.
First, Carmen will listen carefully to what you’re looking for and help you identify your priorities – what’s a must-have vs. a nice-to-have? He helped us prioritize homes based on (1) our vision for our family, (2) the aesthetic we preferred, and (3) the functionality that matched our lifestyle. My husband and I joked that it was like having a couples therapist, because Carmen really knew us that well and helped us navigate to the right area and the right house.

Second, Carmen will not let you waste time on properties that do not align to those values.  He never pushed us to pick a property. In fact, he often told me, “No, we’re not seeing that. It doesn’t fit the bill for you and it’d be a waste of time.” By doing so, he saved us a lot of effort and heartache in finding our home.

Third, he is incredible at negotiating and helped us save a lot of money in a quick turnaround. We expected a $2K concession from the seller but instead, we received $8K. And we were able to close on our property in a matter of days! This is where we really saw Carmen’s deep knowledge of real estate come into play, as he advised us on what to ask for after our inspection.

Fourth, Carmen has the most incredible work ethic. I received a response within 30m of every text, email, or phone call – no matter the time of day! When we attended weekend open houses and found a property that we were considering, Carmen was often available within 20m to come by and validate our interest. He was incredibly patient and thorough in explaining every step of the process and every line of our contract. He was hands-on and represented our interests at every step.

Finally, Carmen does not treat you like a customer alone- he really becomes a friend. He generously gave us a gift and champagne on our Closing Day, ordered us a large pizza on Moving Day when we were bone-tired, and sent us hand-written notes in the first week we lived in our house. He’s demonstrated a vested interest in our happiness and I cannot imagine working with anyone else.

I could go on and on, but I’ll leave it at this. Buying a home is most likely the largest purchase you’ll make in your lifetime, and you deserve to feel like you’re working with someone who really understands you and helps translate that into the best home that you can afford. I’ve met with many real estate agents in the last few years and Carmen DiPenti stands out from them all.

Personable, hardworking and always willing to go above and beyond – these are qualities that are hard to come by on their own yet Carmen has all of them. We entrusted Carmen with the sale of our modern townhome in Uptown in the midst of the pandemic and he quickly stood out to us with his technology-enabled and neighborhood-focused approach to selling and his “always on” work mentality. He helped us navigate a difficult environment as sellers and we were able to close quickly when the market rebounded. With the sale behind us as happy customers, we knew that Carmen was the agent we needed to help us find our next home to build our family. Again, his “always on” work ethic and the relationships he has cultivated in the Dallas real estate market enabled us to navigate a competitive offer situation and close on a house in Kessler Park that we are excited to grow into and renovate.  He truly did exceed our expectations and helped us find our dream home. He guided us through significant life changes as sellers and buyers all within 3 months, and we knew we were in good hands every step of the way.

Wow, Carmen truly embodies the qualities of a great realtor! I had such a great experience buying a house from him a few years ago and I knew I could trust him so he was the first and only person I went to when it was time to move out of Dallas and sell my house. He turned a potentially stressful experience of moving and selling a house from across the state, during a pandemic, and in the wake of one of the biggest ice storms in Texas history into a remarkably pleasant experience. Truly incredible. Carmen goes out of his way to work for you and always with your best interest in mind. Not only does he have unique experience and intimate knowledge of the Dallas market, he provides a premium, top-shelf service and invests time and energy to make sure you get the best deal possible and have an enjoyable experience doing it! I would recommend Carmen to my friends and family without reservation. I hope Carmen enjoys working with me, because he will forever be my realtor!

My partner and I got referred to Carmen from a good friend of ours who had great success selling his condo a few years back. From the moment Carmen responded to our text introduction, to the first time we met with him in person at our Dallas condo, Carmen’s positive hopeful energy radiated throughout — even while wearing a face mask. Being somewhat anxious first-time sellers, we didn’t know what to expect or how to begin — especially during a pandemic. But Carmen assured us not to worry and we really didn’t worry much having him as our realtor. Carmen knows what he is doing being a seasoned realtor and the myriad of successful real estate deals secured — like the recent Airplane Hangar real estate deal. Impressive.

Our experience with Carmen began by him thoroughly assessing our condo’s condition pointing out items in need or repair before listing. He connected us to his longstanding repair guy who resolved all of our issues at a decent price point. With repairs completed, he enlisted his seasoned staging stylist to transform our 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 820 square foot condo into a tastefully, simple, elegantly modern home ready for photographing and showing. As part of his plethora of real estate services, Carmen’s team creates a 3D virtual tour affect that takes any potential buyer and virtually transports them into “their new place” when viewing the MLS listing before even stepping foot on property. This added feature gives buyers a realistic vantage point of life living in our condo. I almost wanted to buy it because it was so good and real. It made me smile every time I played with the 3D virtual rendering because of how life-like it was.

We were listed only for a week with a handful of offers coming in before we accepted one. Carmen patiently guided us through the offers weighing their pros and cons. We of course had certain parameters an offer must include which Carmen fully understood and agreed to. With an offer accepted, Carmen and his team kept us up-to-date as well as checked in every other day via text and voice mail as we progressed through all of the buying phases. Carmen has a wonderful over the phone voice that is calm, soothing and reflective. His attention to detail and many years of experience helped us feel at ease the entire time.

We happily recommend Carmen DiPenti of the Carmen DiPenti Group to any potential seller out there. In fact, we’ve already recommended Carmen to a friend of ours when they are ready to list their condo. I will say that if we lived or moved anywhere in Dallas in the future, we would seek Carmen’s buying guidance at first chance. Carmen is very special to us because he sold our first condo. And the first time selling experience with him and his team was a really good first time.

Carmen is an outstanding agent to work with. He is an excellent listener and negotiator with a very in-depth knowledge of the local markets. I contacted him about a house purchase and we were able to close within three weeks. At no point in those weeks did his dedication and professionalism to help me to achieve my goal waiver. He is extremely competent, he has quickly responded to all of my questions and concerns, and his knowledge of the entire process from beginning to end is outstanding. Without a doubt, I would seek him out immediately for any upcoming real estate transaction in the future.

Carmen is not only a fantastic realtor but a wonderful person, and we were so lucky to have found him!

We met Carmen at an open house at the start of our search. He wasn’t overbearing like other realtors we met and after a couple meetings knew he understood us and the perfect house we were looking for. We must have previewed 40 homes in the M streets area starting in the spring of 2020. He was so patient with us as well as realistic and knowledgeable of the area. With a crazy market he wanted us to make sure we were making a good choice and investment. He would drop everything to meet us any day or time to view a house and make sure we were the first people to see a home even before most were hitting the market. He offered his assistance with contractors, painters, etc during the process for pricing and quotes if needed.

We found our dream home and made a great friend in the process! He has been extremely helpful and responsive well after the home was purchased.

We couldn’t recommend Carmen more, he knows the DFW market and has great resources!

My family has known and trusted Carmen with home buying decisions in the Dallas area for six years. As a first time home buyer, I knew I could trust Carmen to guide me through the process with patience and integrity. To no surprise, Carmen did just that. Having a trusted agent proved to be such an integral part of the purchasing process in today’s market. Carmen was there every step of the way with an impressively calm demeanor; that said, he expressed a steady urgency when necessary to get the deal done. Additionally, I was very thankful to have Carmen’s expertise on my side when making concessions in this seller’s market. Carmen protected me as his client and showed sincere regard for my best interest. Carmen was a great sounding board in vetting out the good versus the bad. Nothing has changed about my positive opinion of Carmen since meeting him six years ago. However, I have now personally experienced Carmen’s genuine and professional actions, which have me excited to include him in all my future real estate ventures.

The only thing scarier then purchasing your first home is purchasing your first home as an out-of-state buyer in a seller’s market.

We were connected with Carmen through a family member and immediately felt at ease and understood why their recommendation was so enthusiastic. Carmen is attentive, responsive, and always answers questions in a detailed and easy to understand manner. As out-of-towners moving to Irving, he spent a whole weekend helping us tour the area and attending home showings. At the showings, he was candid and straightforward about the pros and cons of the property. He pointed out important aspects of home buying and things to look out for that, as first time buyers, we would not have otherwise considered.

Carmen even went above and beyond and, after our visit, continued to attend showings and sends videos walking us through the pros and cons of properties that fit our needs. This is how we found our new home! Without Carmen’s tireless work, it would not have been possible to find such an amazing home in the timeframe that we did.

Carmen’s services continued through closing and beyond. He and his colleague, Frances, diligently walked us through the steps and paperwork needed to finalize the process. Given that we were buying from a distance and our busy schedules, this process could have easily become a nightmare, but thanks to Carmen’s comprehensive understanding of the process and skill at working with other agents, it went more smoothly than we ever could have imagined.

Thank you so much, Carmen and Frances, for all of your help. We couldn’t have done it without you! If/when we are ready to sell our home, Carmen will be our first and only call.

Working with Carmen was a very pleasant and enjoyable process. As first time home buyers He was available day and night to answer any questions we had and keep us updated every step of the way. He made us feel comfortable and taken care of the entire way.

Carmen also had great recommendations for home inspectors, movers and other home necessities that we could trust.

Not only did Carmen put us in our perfect home, but he got us everything we asked for, under budget and on schedule. He is a tough negotiator and works hard for his clients.

I feel very comfortable saying I would definitely recommend Carmen to any of my friends or family looking to buy or sell. We plan on using Carmen again in the future for any and all of our real estate needs. 3 months later he still regularly checks up on us!

We are appreciative of all he did to find us our dream house and could not have done it without him.

Carmen represented my family in the purchase of our house in Plano. I have been investing in real estate for several years and have been dealing with real estate professionals for a very long time. I can honestly say Carmen is one of the most professional in his presentation, follow up, and follow through. Even though we dealt with a difficult seller, and several obstacles through the process, he did a tremendous job of guiding us along. I would highly recommend Carmen to anyone buying or selling real estate.

Bill King

We would definitely recommend Carmen as your realtor for these reasons:

He consistently balanced our input about our property and other personal ideas with his professional knowledge and experience, which we respected, reaching a mutual agreement about its marketing and resulting in a smooth sales experience.  (First, down came all those family pictures–aargh–but creating the correct impression.)

He was super-responsive to communicating with us via phone or e-mail on any issues or questions that arose, along with giving us helpful updates on market feedback and comparable area marketing results.

He was proficient in handling the buyer/seller negotiations and in coordinating all the steps necessary to close the deal.

My wife and I ran into Carmen at an open house while we were in the initial phases of looking for a house. Carmen was very helpful and had a very solid handle on what was in the market. He also was not pushy, which we liked. Over the next couple of weeks Carmen was incredibly responsive and scoured the market for us. He had a quick grasp of what we were looking for. Once we decided on the house above, that is when Carmen’s service went to the next level. I am pretty demanding of my employees that they be responsive and I can say that Carmen’s responsiveness was outstanding. He also offered what I would consider a concierge level service right to the closing. Even post-closing he stays in contact with us giving us information that leads us to believe that we made the right choice. He also has a great network of like-minded individuals. He had great recommendations for everyone from lenders to “handy persons” who can fix things for you. I highly recommend Carmen whether you are selling or buying a home.

My husband and I would give Carmen ten stars if we could. He really floored us with his attentiveness, professionalism, kindness, instinct, effectivness, promptness, network…really, I could go on. Most importantly, he can close a deal, which proved to be absolutely invaluablewhen we found our home. It had been on the market for less than a day when we viewed it and it already had two offers. He worked with our lender to develop an offer that was both competive and reasonable. And we got the house! Not many people can say that their home buying experience was actually joyful. My husband and I can. Buying our first home was a special milestone in our lives that we think back to with fondness. We are so grateful that Carmen was representing us. He remains a great friend and sends market insights to us often about our neighborhood. He is always responsiveand willing to freely share his expertise and recommendations as we navigate our way through homeownership.

Carmen was with us through our house search from start to finish.  He made sure we got the best house for our needs and was always available to answer any questions or concerns.  We benefitted from working with Carmen because he did not stop until we found the perfect house for us.  He also worked quickly and efficiently to make sure we got everything we wanted and was extremely thorough throughout the process.  I would highly recommend working with Carmen for any of your real estate needs.  He is attentive, reliable, and passionate about each and every client.

I had run into Carmen DiPentia Dave Perry-Miller sales associate, at a function I was hosting. Carmen and I struck up a conversation about house hunting and Carmen followed up the next day with a series of listings for me. It was obvious to me he had listened carefully to what I was looking for because his recommendations were spot on.  Carmen worked tirelessly and in the end actually went door to door for me, searching for potential sellers where I wanted to buy. I can’t begin to count the properties we looked at. Carmen was polite, thorough and determined every step of the way.  After I finally bought my new home, Carmen followed up with extensive financial and resource information that was invaluable.

I don’t know to this day how he did it, but Carmen even got the closing done in almost record time, to fit with my work schedule.

I appreciate people who work hard and I’m grateful that I have a public way to say thank you to them.  I hope that if you are considering buying or selling a home in the Dallas area, my recommendation will lead you to Carmen…

We were new to the Dallas area and Carmen really listened to our needs. He provided reliable, real-time, invaluable data on the housing market. We were given the flexibility to navigate homes via the MLS portal; while Carmen consistently provided recommendations and upcoming listings.  He was able to identify a pending property before it hit the market, get in to see the place, make an offer and close – while maintaining professionalism. He was available 24/7: meeting when and where we needed him. Overall, our experience working with Carmen was awesome! We would absolutely recommend using his services!

My boyfriend and I were recently looking for a house in the Mid-cities area, and were feeling very discouraged. Once we finally met Carmen, he guided us to find our dream house in Grapevine, and he made it so simple and enjoyable. Carmen was so incredibly thoughtful and went above and beyond when he really didn’t have to. Working with him was so seamless and he truly had our best interests in mind. It’s easy to tell that Carmen really loves what he does and always puts his clients first.

Katy Simmons & Marshall Kimbro

Working with Carmen as our realtor was successful for several reasons.  First, Carmen is a consummate professional who never balked at meeting us at odd hours (as late as 10 PM), showing a house via Skype, or driving an hour out of his way to show us a property.  He contacted us regularly, and sent us properties the second they were listed, which was critical in a market low on inventory.  More than anyone else we worked with, Carmen was willing to go above and beyond to help us find a house.  Additionally, Carmen’s professional network proved to be vital to our home search.  Even though we scoured online listings several times a day, Carmen found our house from a tip in his office.  We would never have had access to that information on our own.  As we progressed through the process, his personal recommendation led us to our loan officer who helped us close on our house in under a month.  I am positive that his network was essential to our success.

After failing to find a home in almost 6 months with three different realtors, Carmen helped us find our house in under a month.  Additionally, in a market where buyers were offering above list price, our home’s estimate came in higher than our offer.  After losing several bidding wars using other realtors, Carmen helped us make a winning bid that was also a good investment.

We have already recommended Carmen to all of our friends who are buying or selling homes, and I would recommend him to anyone.  In addition to providing great results, he is a wonderful person to work with and brought a positive and earnest energy to a stressful and tedious process.  Carmen is an effective and driven professional, a genuinely kind person, and we are happy to call him our friend and realtor.

Without Carmen’s help it would have taken months to find the right home.  Our search would have been much more difficult as we were not living in the Dallas area when we began our search.  It was invaluable to us to have someone in the Dallas market that we could trust to protect our interest while we were involved in the process of moving here from another city.

Carmen was able to keep an eye on and visit properties that we were interested in when we were not able to be in town.  He took the time to Skype us with his appraisals of properties we were interested in.

Having a real estate agent that you can trust is everything.  Not once during the process of finding the right home did we ever get the impression that Carmen had anything but our best interest in mind.  He not only took time to visit each and every property with us but he followed through every detail after the deal was complete.  He continues to off his support and that is not only reassuring and comforting but a great blessing to us.

Carmen was always excited to help us and make our needs and wants his priority.  He did not try to steer us in any direction but listened to our comments and developed property suggestions based on what we were looking for not what he was trying to sell.

Mark & Kirby Brower

Looking for and buying a home can sometimes be stressful but I knew from the start that Carmen had our best interests in mind.  He really listened to our needs and made us feel comfortable every step of the way.  His responsiveness and tireless work ethic was above and beyond our expectations.  We knew we made the right choice with him and he proved us right.

We benefit every day when we come home and enjoy where we live and our neighborhood.  We are minutes from the Bishop Arts District and enjoy short commutes to work.  We aren’t stuck in traffic on the tollway for hours every day so we feel like we made a wise choice.

I’d say, Carmen works tirelessly until you get what you want.  There is no pressure, tactics, rush or bias involved with him.  He is the consummate professional with deep rooted values that will always work for your end goal.

As a first time homebuyer I was extremely nervous about the entire process. I’m a businesswoman so my time is valuable. I wanted someone who could not only appreciate that, but was willing to accommodate and work with my hectic schedule. After much research, I looked no further than Carmen DiPenti.

He was fabulous from the first phone conversation. He didn’t waste any time with getting right to the point of what I wanted and needed. We looked at several houses over the course of a week and I went from house shopping to closing on my first home in 40 days.

The entire process was quick and painless! I attribute that to Carmen’s knowledge, professionalism and work ethic. He held my hand every step of the way and a year later he still checks in on me and the house. I’d recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. Carmen will honestly make you feel like you’re his only client when you know he has several. That kind of service is hard to find!

Carmen is a brilliant hard working young man that you can trust to represent you as client with the same honesty and determination that he would for himself. His expertise is in both residential and commercial investment properties along with residential.

I worked with Carmen on my first ever home purchase. Carmen was professional, competent, thorough and extremely thoughtful. He made what could have been a very stressful process into an enjoyable. He gave me sound advise as we sifted thru different inventories, neighborhoods, and types of homes. From beginning the search all the way thru closing – Carmen was by my side and my ally for anything I needed. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Having Carmen as my realtor made the whole house hunting process an easy one. He always took the time to offer research, guidance, insight and knowledge on various areas and properties around town. His follow thru and commitment to excellence make him stand apart from others in the field – especially when bringing a fresh, unbiased approach to the Dallas real estate market. He also has the patience to make sure you as the buyer (or seller) get exactly what you want – just like I did. I couldn’t have done it without him.

Carmen was very helpful in finding a new home for me and my family. He was able to answer our questions and concerns night and day. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home that wants an agent who not only cares about your home search but about your family too.

Carmen is not only one of my closest friends but an incredible real estate agent.
He helped sell our home for top dollar by advising us on different items to fix/update, how to stage the home, and then negotiated a top dollar sales price for our community.  He did all this while simultaneously finding us a home in our desired area and patiently worked with the difficult seller.  I recommend him beyond.

Buying a house for us was a very emotional decision with tremendous financial implications.  What complicated it more is we (my wife, 9-year old son and I) recently relocated from MI, a place we’ve called home for several years.  Finding the right house in the right community is very important to help us, particularly my son, transition to our new life here in TX.  We were very fortunate to be introduced to Carmen DiPenti.  Carmen is the best realtor you can find in the Dallas, Fort Worth TX area.  He is extremely professional on how he worked with us.  He has this unique ability to connect and communicate well to both my wife and me.  He sympathetically listened to our concerns during the emotional roller coaster and provided us with well thought out advice.  He was always there when we needed to contact him, responding to our text messages in a matter of minutes and calls back the moment he gets a free time.  Having Carmen to talk when we needed to, helped minimize our anxieties.  He is very knowledgeable with contract terminologies and can interpret it in practical layman’s terms.  He was very patient going through all the documents, from making the initial offer, working with the home inspector to understand the inspection report, to signing the final contract.  He worked directly with our loan officer and insurance agent to iron out issues, this really helped facilitate the process.

To sum up how we feel about Carmen, he is a realtor who genuinely cares.  We will definitely work with him again in the future and have already been recommending him to our friends, that’s how much we trust and vouch for him.

We were looking for a second home in Dallas, and knew far more about what we didn’t want than what we wanted. After working with a different agent for a while, we switched to Carmen on a friend’s recommendation. Carmen lined up dozens of places for us to look at online, and asked for our candid feedback on each one. We kept narrowing the list and arranged a visit. Carmen showed us nine different places in one afternoon – and we didn’t like any of them! While we were discouraged, Carmen just told us that we had narrowed down his search and that the right place would come.

One afternoon we got the phone call. Carmen told us to look at the listing he had just sent us – and it looked perfect. He rushed over to meet the listing realtor before the sign went up and FaceTimed us on a virtual tour. We wrote an offer on the listing and flew down a few days later for a walkthrough. Without Carmen’s hustle and initiative we would likely have missed this unique townhouse entirely.

Carmen was proactive and thorough every step of the way. He reminded us of important deadlines before closing, advised us on home warranties, followed up with post-inspection items, and kept us on track through the holidays and even while we travelled out of the country. After the sale closed, Carmen has followed up with us continuously, even offering to drop by the house to take in a package that came before we moved in. We can’t recommend him more highly.

Carmen was great to work with.  He took the time to ask questions to understand our needs and help us to understand the sales process. His professionalism and expertise resulted in excellent advice to help us to stage the house appropriately.  His advise and collaboration with a talented photographer resulted in beautiful pictures to feature online and on his social media channels. In addition, the printed materials were of very high quality, featured not only the property but also highlighted the advantages of living in the area.  We would be happy to work with him on either sales or purchases.

Carmen went above and beyond what most realtors would do and far exceeded my expectations for what a realtor can do to help in the home buying process! In a tight market when houses go quickly it is important for someone to be on your side to help you find the right place for you, and Carmen did just that every step of the way. The place I eventually bought was one that came on the market while I was halfway across the country and Carmen was able to show me the house and secure the deal before I even got back to Dallas, of course with the appropriate options for once I got back into town, and made the whole process almost effortless for me. He really set the bar high for what to expect your realtor to do for you. He always went the extra mile and even was able to meet people at the property and schedule people to come out when I was unavailable. In a market like this I think it would’ve been nearly impossible to close on this deal as quickly and easily as I did without Carmen’s help. Carmen is also my advocate all along the way, never pushy, and just great guy all-around and I now have a new friend in Dallas! I would definitely recommend Carmen to my friends, colleagues, and loved ones if they want an outstanding realtor when the time comes.

What is the true sign of a happy client?  They keep coming back to you years after the first sale.  That’s what we did.  Carmen helped us find our first home in Dallas and we were so happy with how he operated that when it came time to find a new home for our growing family, there was no doubt in our minds he was our guy.  Integrity, trust, commitment.  His core values are what kept us coming back to him.  He is always on your side and works tirelessly behind the scenes.

When friends or coworkers need help buying or selling their home, I don’t hesitate in referring Carmen.  I rest assured knowing he will give it his all to make things happen!

I worked with Carmen in the September-October time frame of 2017.  Because of personal reasons, I had to sell my downtown condo right after the peak season of August had concluded, and I needed it to move fast.  After our first meeting, he was able to get a professional photographer over in just a couple days (after I finished my thorough cleaning) and get the property on the market quickly after that.  We priced the property on the top of the market, and had an offer on the table at asking in about 2 days.  Carmen was extremely responsive and helpful through the whole process, even when I had to leave and work with him remotely from out of state.  I would confidently recommend Carmen to friends and family; he is a smart guy that is committed to building and maintaining a reputation as a top agent in the industry.

I recently closed on a property with the help of Carmen Dipenti. I’ve dealt with a lot of very good real estate agents and I have to say that Carmen went beyond what’s expected of a great real estate agent. He guided me and informed me accurately through the whole process helping close on a great property at a great price in a very short period of time. I intend to recommend him any opportunity I get.

I have never know a professional to work as tirelessly for his clients as Carmen does! My husband and I were first-time home buyers coming out of a disappointing situation with another realtor, hoping for the best but not knowing what to expect. Our expectations were shattered with Carmen. From the time we had our first meeting to closing on our house took 2 1/2 months in a highly competitive market and price point. Along the way he had our best interest in mind and it obvious that he cares for his clients.  He goes above and beyond the ensure that you get a home that works well for you and that it’s a smart investment. I recommend Carmen to anyone looking buy or sell!

As a first time homebuyer, I was fortunate to have met Carmen at an open house.   After working with him over the span of a few months, I can’t say enough about his depth of knowledge, professionalism, and responsiveness.

Early in the process, he could have easily advised me to accept a counteroffer and been done with the transaction.  However, he continued to show me other properties and encouraged me to be patient, and we ultimately found a property that was more suitable and valuable.  During the inspection process, he worked quickly to investigate all the potential issues, which ultimately helped in the negotiation.  At no time was Carmen ever pushy, and he always gave the pros and cons at each step along the way.  Without hesitation, I would recommend him for your home buying and selling needs.

Since moving to Dallas last year, my husband and I tossed around the idea of buying a house. We’ve moved around A LOT, but knew Dallas was going to be our permanent home. Coming to a brand new city can be hard because you don’t know anyone. Who can you trust? Buying a home is a HUGE deal and trusting a random stranger with a task this important was a tough pill for my husband and I to swallow. But, my mom was visiting, so we thought it would be fun to at least see what was out on the market…we didn’t even really know for sure if or when we’d actually buy.

We met Carmen at the first open house. We were so impressed right away with how easy going and honest he was. It was like we were becoming great friends! The house wasn’t really what we were looking for (only had 2 bedrooms and we definitely needed 3). Carmen wasn’t pushy at all. He didn’t try to make us love a house that wouldn’t work. But he did offer to take my information and send me listings on houses that fit our criteria. In any other situation, I probably would have said “No thank you.” Getting spammed and pressured is not something I enjoy, but I knew from our short conversation that Carmen was different so I gave him my information and we went on our way.

We had our eye on another house that had just came back on the market. I sent a message through Zillow and received a call back from the listing agent so we met him an hour or so later. The house was AWFUL! The floor was so uneven…if there was snow, you could have went sledding. All the agent said was “Well, with a house this age, you’ll have some settling.” We quickly said our goodbyes and got out of there! That confirmed what we were already thinking… we wanted to only work with Carmen!

We started contacted him about other houses we liked and he was always so quick to respond. I’m the type where I can easily get excited about something but Carmen was always the voice of reason! He’d point things out I didn’t even notice and would explain everything so we could easily understand.

After several houses, we found our dream home! This is the really tough part! Making bids…waiting…inspections…paperwork. I thank my lucky stars to this day that we had Carmen to walk us through it. I was emailing, calling, and texting him all the time! He was ALWAYS there to answer my questions right away. He made the complicated process of buying a home easier and much more enjoyable. To be perfectly honest, as excited as I was when the process was over and we could move into our very first home…I was also sad. I knew we’d miss Carmen! Not only did we buy a home, we met an incredible, knowledgable, caring, and honest person who we most definitely consider a friend. We can never thank him enough for his help and his honesty (I cannot stress his honesty enough!) I usually don’t write reviews, but I’ve never been so passionate about recommending someone! If you are looking for someone to help you navigate through the difficult world of real estate, trust me…Carmen is your man!

First, we feel like we benefited from working with Carmen because he not only kept us informed along the way, but also told us the “why” behind every action taken and ensured us that we had complete knowledge of each transaction and communication that took place. At no point did he ever make us feel confused or unsure about a situation and was knowledgeable enough to know when that might happen, and took a proactive approach to thwart it.

Working with Carmen was a success because he made us feel like we were his only clients. He did a phenomenal job at making us feel he was available around the clock and that we were his sole clients. We never felt rushed nor did we ever need to make a decision based upon quick or rushed information relayed to us. We also believe working with Carmen was such a success due to his knowledge of the Dallas area, and examining and relaying statistics and patterns to us to help us make informed decisions. He knew exactly what we were looking for and made certain he was going to follow through with the exact residence. We truly believe we closed on the perfect house for us, which, in such a multiple offer situation most houses become in right now, Carmen’s experience helped us obtain the best offer!

We would and HAVE recommended Carmen to everyone we know so far. He made the buying of a new home a very enjoyable experience!!

My wife and I recently purchased a house after looking for the perfect place for about six months. Our needs were fairly specific as we needed room for us along with our two kids and fairly large dog. In addition we wanted a pool and it had to fit our budget.

We are so thankful that Carmen Dipenti represented us not only in the purchase of our new house but also in the sale of our old house. He really took the time to listen to our wants and needs. The whole time he kept our budget in mind and offered helpful tips along the way.

Through the search for a new home we probably changed our mind at least a dozen times. Carmen was very understanding and was always willing to update the search and show us what we wanted to see as well as anything he felt we needed to see. If we saw something on paper that appeared ok but a problem stood out to him he wasn’t scared to call and share his concerns. He was looking out for our best interest all the way.

Once we found a home and made an offer Carmen carefully explained the process. He told us everything that possibly could happen and prepared us for any curves that may come our way. This came in handy as curves did get thrown at us and we were ready. We even managed to use some of those curves to our advantage during negotiations. In the end we walked away with the exact house we had hoped for at a much better price than we expected.

Carmen patiently waited for us to move into the new home so he could list our old one. He made recommendations on what repairs we should make and then again waited patiently for us to make them. When it came time to list we had a whirlwind of offers. The house was booked solid with showings for an entire weekend. Offers begin to come in faster than we ever could have imagined.

Once all the offers were in Carmen sat down with us and went through each one. He helped us select the offer that made the most sense for us and our needs. Once again we profited because the price we were paid for our house was much higher than what we had originally thought. Had it been up to us we would have listed much lower but Carmen was diligent in research and studying comps to make sure we got what our home was truly worth instead of what we thought it was worth.

Carmen was professional, prepared and knowledgeable. He truly cared that our family found a home that suited our needs. We are still over joyed with our home but when the time comes to move again we will definitely use Carmen as our realtor.

My husband and I were first-time homeowners for two years.  We lived in a transitional neighborhood in East Dallas and casually decided we wanted to plant our permanent roots in North Dallas someday.  The real estate buying/selling process has morphed over the last decade with the advent of technology and real estate websites and our story and time with Carmen reflects this evolution.  We knew what we wanted in a house and what area it needed to be in, and like most people, we had access to look at homes from the leisure of our couch with various real estate apps, before we ever even had a realtor.  Before we knew what hit us, we found a house that we both fell in love with.  It was so fast and unexpected, but we loved it! We knew how hot the Dallas market was and had lots of fear and questions. We had never sold a house and bought one at the same time.  How does it work?? What if our house doesn’t sell?? What if we lose the house we love??  We asked a friend who recently purchased a home who they would recommend and they emphatically SHOUTED at us, “Carmen!”  We trusted their judgement and decided to call him and tell him our situation.

Absolutely, from the beginning, we never had a doubt we made the right decision.  Carmen encouraged us to view other houses besides the one we liked.  It was important for us to be clear and have options and houses to contrast against the one we loved.  He even found houses that weren’t on our real estate apps.  Like most house-hunters, my husband and I tended to be emotional. Each one we visited, Carmen was objective and honest in his critique.   At the same time, we never once felt pressure or a preference from Carmen.  This is a fine line to walk for a realtor and Carmen does it naturally.

When we decided the original house was the one for us, we had to act quickly to put our house on the market.  We had a unique and tricky house; lots of renovations and upgrades but in a questionable area.  We were afraid it was unpredictable.  Carmen came in confidently on the high end.  He prepared the house to go onto the market in record speed.  There was an amazing glossy informational collateral center, a photo tour, and he helped simplify and generalize our décor.  We put the house on the market on a Friday.  By Monday, we had 10 tours and 8 offers. He navigated and negotiated this absolutely to perfection.  We ended up with an all cash offer, over asking, and closed in 7 days.  Now that I know the process and complexities, trust me when I say, ONLY a true real estate professional could accomplish this feat.

We took a while to write this review because we wanted it to be perfect.  Not just because Carmen exceeded our real estate expectations, but because now Carmen is personal to us.  Carmen is a friend.  Real estate buying and selling has changed drastically in a short amount of time.  Gone are the days of looking in newspapers and real estate magazines.  Things are faster now, a little more hectic.  In the past a realtor’s value came from providing options and access to information consumers didn’t have access to.  In 2016, realtors need to be service-minded.  They need to help navigate the process and make it as seamless and easy as possible for their clients.  While Carmen can navigate both these models with ease, we think he is shines as a contemporary.  We could not have asked for a better experience with a realtor, in all aspects. Emotionally, financially, pragmatically.  Carmen has it all.  I don’t want to put my phone number on here, but please don’t hesitate to reach out to Carmen to ask for our info or a more direct referral.  He has our permission to give it out and we would love to talk about him!

Shortly after reaching the decision to purchase a house in the Dallas “M Streets” for our two college students, we had the good fortune of meeting Carmen at an open house. We really liked his friendly personality and “no pressure” approach and decided to call him to arrange an appointment to view a prospective house. He was willing to work within our tight schedule, as we live two hours away. At this appointment, we received a wealth of education from Carmen and instantly felt comfortable making the decision to select him as the professional to guide us through this complicated and financially significant process. What a good decision on our part!

This was the beginning of a seven-month process of working with Carmen, and having the pleasure of getting to know him and developing an appreciation for his expertise, commitment, ethics, professionalism, and the fact he is a great person. He always listened to our needs and made our best interests his top priority. Through this time period, our discerning and frequently “perfectionist” nature would have certainly tested the patience of most realtors, but not Carmen. He always remained upbeat and optimistic, even when a deal fell through or we opted out.

One of many outstanding traits is his availability, promptly responding to phone calls, emails, and texts, along with meeting us on literally a moment’s notice. His focus on making our house-hunting visits to Dallas as efficient as possible by learning what we wanted and needed in a property, prescreening houses, and not being afraid to say when he knew a property was not in our best interest.

After months of looking and a great deal of time, effort, and hand-holding from Carmen, we did find a great property at the right location and price. He provides his clients with recommendations for inspectors, mortgage lenders, and other professionals with which he has personal experience. We used a recommended local lender, who provided a seamless loan acquisition and closing process.

The downside of purchasing our house is that we no longer get to see Carmen frequently. The considerable amount of time together led to our friendship, and we really miss running to Dallas to look at houses with him. We are excited to recommend Carmen to anyone for their real estate needs.

It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Realtor, Carmen DiPenti with Dave Perry Miller for his impeccable service in assisting us with selling and buying a new home (Sold 3/15/2016 Bought 3/17/2016).   After four exhausting interviews with other realtor companies that had sale fast agenda at any cost; we knew this gentleman would be perfect to sell our home of 23 years, and assist with the purchase of our new home.  On our initial call we were scheduled an interview for the next day.  During the interview we were presented with an impressive portfolio of our home including all the demographics of the area, WOW! Carmen with his knowledge and expertise answered all of our questions and provided us with outstanding advice about how to prepare our home for sale. The possession and exhibit of his professionalism was top notch, OH this was just the interview!During the process of selling and buying Carmen was very hands on. He provided a profile on the house for people touring. He promptly returned all phone calls and had advertising in place as soon as possible. He worked hard, illustrated a great understanding of contract details, negotiation etiquette, and documentation.

After an inspection revealed deficiencies with the house that we were selling, Carmen’s calm reassurance and expert advice was outstanding; making this nerve-wracking negotiation a wonderful success!  Carmen also has a solid knowledge of home construction. He was quick to notice where the builder of the new home we bought (or more likely the “do it yourself” owner) had taken some shortcuts that could have potential problems down the road.

We can’t say enough about his professionalism, true caring nature, and extensive knowledge/connections. He brought all these qualities to the table, and it didn’t stop at the real estate transaction. We were provided with very helpful information on transitioning to our new home/community.

This guy is our Real Estate Superhero!! He was truly faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!!!Any day all day, we would recommend Carmen as a great Real Estate agent, willing to go beyond the expectations of a potential Real Estate buyer or seller.

A young couple moved to Dallas and had Carmen as their realtor. They highly recommended Carmen to her father, a realtor I was using outside of Dallas. He recommended Carmen to me and what a favor that was. After being retired and living in my condo in Dallas for 20+ years, Carmen was an unexpected joy to work with. He explained every process, arranged all necessary work to be done. and kept me comfortable throughout the entire process including closing 4 weeks later!. I could not, would not recommend anyone else, if you are looking for the best. So, anyone considering an agent in your future, call him now or get in line to take a number. That’s how good he is!

Carmen is one of the most dedicated, hardworking and trustworthy Realtors.  His extensive knowledge, persistence and attention to detail is never in doubt nor will he disappoint.  If you are looking for resolution in a home buying or selling process, I highly recommend Carmen as your residential Realtor.

Carmen DiPenti is a dedicated, hard working, and honest agent. My fiancé and I weren’t necessarily looking to buy a home in the immediate future, but we saw a few houses online that peaked our interest. Even though we let Carmen know that we were in no rush to buy,  he was very willing to show us all the homes we wanted to see and answered all of our newbie questions. He showed us many homes and gave his honest, professional opinion on each, pointing out the pros on cons at the different listings.  We ended up falling in love with a home and decided to buy. We couldn’t have asked for an easier, more pleasant experience, and Carmen got us through closing quickly and without any problems.  Even if you are only starting your search, call Carmen! I couldn’t recommend him more.

Tawney Carter & Jordan Bailey

We were very lucky to meet Carmen at an open house and have him help us with the search for our new home in Dallas. We recently moved to Texas and knew almost no one and very little about the area. Carmen took the time show/explain the different areas to us, find out what we wanted and what was important to us, and help us find just what we were looking for. He made himself available on practically no notice so that we could see any listing we wanted to see.

Once we found the right place he knew just how to handle the offer so that we got an acceptance quickly, before/over competing offers, and still below list.

Carmen’s service and attention to detail didn’t stop after the offer was accepted. He helped handle every aspect of the process including, finding financing that could close very quickly, evaluating comps to make sure we were making a good purchase, helping us find inspectors, designers and contractors, and making sure everyone was on track for the scheduled closing date. Because of his knowledge, focus on every step of the process, and relationships with others involved, we were able to go from offer to closed in 30 days. I’m sure this helped us get the home over other buyers in a very competitive market.

Obviously, based on our experience we would recommend Carmen if you are looking for someone to handle your real estate purchase or sale. But even if you’re not looking to buy or sell right now, you couldn’t ask to meet a nicer person.

When our elderly parents needed to sell their long-time family home,   Carmen DiPenti was recommended to list the property.  We couldn’t have asked for a more professional, caring, and attentive agent.  He was always available, either by text/email/phone, and kept us updated and informed throughout the process.  We felt like he worked extremely hard to see our parents receive the maximum gain from the sale of their home. It was clear he had compassion for our family’s situation and wanted to do an excellent job for us!

Without hesitation, we would recommend him to any friend or family member who was in need of an agent!

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.

Randi Jacobs
Preston Hollow

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.

David McFadden
Preston Hollow

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).

Jimmy Taylor
East Dallas

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.

Shane Rooney
East Dallas

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.

Cody Faulkner & Sadaf Sadr
Little Elm

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.

Joe Milazzo
East Dallas

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.

Will Lanier
Portland, OR

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!

Ben & Rebecca Yarborough 
Lakewood

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!

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!

Gianluca Zanigni

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!

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.

Matthew Jordan

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!!
