I had a great experience with Luis. He is very knowledgeable and reliable. I liked that he is always available and still values his clients before, during, and after the whole process. He truly cares about his clients and I would refer anyone to him.

— Nancy R.


Luis Carlos helped us get our first home. He explained the process and made it easy to understand as we were first time buyers. He guided us every step, and responded every question. He is very professional and therefore we highly recommended him to a couple of friends. Truly great experience.

— Veronica A.


Luis Carlos is one of the best REALTORS I have worked with, professional, caring and focused on the customers needs. The pictures taken and the open house activity moved the house quickly.

— Mathew M.


Our experience with Luis was amazing! He was attentive, honest, direct, and reasonable. His availability allowed for multiple showings and we were able to sell at our price point. He did for us what our other REALTOR could not do, and that was to sell our home. Luis is highly recommended.

— Dorys V.


We worked with Luis twice and we highly recommend him as your future REALTOR. He is a true professional and hard-working individual, but most importantly gets the job done. Because of him we are able to move on time and not have two house payments. Couldn’t be more happy with his service!
