Carmen was wonderful to work with in the land buying process. She has extensive knowledge of the area and the laws. She stays current with changes to local codes and laws, which was extremely beneficial when we had to determine if the lot's septic approval was still good with the county. She made it easy for us to determine what areas were a match for us and which were not. She was always prompt in responding to any questions or concerns, and she demonstrated great negotiation skills to help us secure the property we wanted to purchase. We would highly recommend Carmen for any real estate needs, and we wouldn't hesitate to use her services in the future. Cara Owens, Whitefish, MT
