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.
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.
