About Carmen

For almost 30 years, Carmen Miranda has been assisting buyers and sellers of San Francisco Bay Area real estate. A seasoned veteran with multiple awards for her exceptionally high-level service and production achievements, Carmen does not measure her success by sales volume and accumulation of awards, but by the steady stream of referrals she receives from her clients. Carmen believes that good, long-term relationships are built on a foundation of trust and mutual respect. She considers it an honor and privilege to serve individuals and families who have chosen her to guide them through a process that can often be complex and emotionally charged. She understands that buying Bay Area real estate can be one of the largest investments a person will make in their lifetime. She knows the importance of listening; of open and honest communication; she understands the responsibility that comes with being a knowledgeable and trusted advisor throughout a complicated legal transaction. Carmen takes her role whole-heartedly. Known for her integrity, strong negotiation skills and extensive experience, Carmen’s philosophy is simple: treat others as you wish to be treated. This fundamental principle is why Carmen serves her clients personally, one-on-one. When needed, she draws from her handpicked network of industry professionals, who she trusts and respects, to provide expert advice and services during stages of a transaction. As a Mid-Peninsula native, Carmen has in-depth and firsthand knowledge of the trends and nuances that make up Peninsula communities – particularly, in San Mateo County. She holds degrees in Business Management and Computer Science, which provided her a good foundation for life as an entrepreneur. She continues her education today by studying market trends on macro and micro levels, staying in front of industry technology, and keeping up-to-date on legal issues that may affect her clients. Carmen is a verified member of Top Agent Network (TAN) in San Mateo County (top 10% of SMC agents), has held the Diamond Certified Award for ten consecutive years for her exceptional service in San Mateo County (only 6 agents of 2200), and has won the Five Star Professional award for outstanding service in 2014, 2015 and soon…2016 (only 151 agents of 2200). She is a Relocation Specialist and consistently is a top 10 Realtor in her Alain Pinel Realtors office in Burlingame. She is a member of the California Association of Realtors (CAR) and San Mateo County Association of Realtors (SAMCAR). Carmen leads an active and healthy lifestyle. She loves the great outdoors and is an avid hiker, SUP boarder, camper, kayaker and fisherwoman. She enjoys vacationing in the Hawaiian Islands and travelling to the UK to visit with family. But when at home, she finds great joy in the simple pleasures of preparing nutritious gourmet meals and walking her Frenchie and cocker spaniel around Redwood Shores and at Fort Funston. Giving back to the community that provides her so much, Carmen supports individuals, families and veterans who struggle with self-sufficiency and homelessness by donating a percentage of her commission to LifeMoves – a San Mateo/Santa Clara County nonprofit committed to ending the cycle of homelessness.

What should you look for when interviewing a real estate agent in Foster City?
When you sell a house, your real estate agent becomes your business partner, financial advisor, and emotional support system. It’s crucial to partner with someone you trust, so make sure you’re looking for an agent who can answer all of your questions with confidence during the interview. During this process, you want to get to know the agent’s business and find out how well they know the area. You’re listening for things that signal experience, expertise in your community, and workload.

When is the right time to hire a real estate agent in Foster City?
The best window to contact an agent to sell your home is anywhere from three to six months in advance of your list date.

And since it takes around 3 months to close on a home, you should list in February. We recommend that you hire a real estate agent as soon as you're thinking of selling your home. Generally speaking, that's anywhere from 3 to 6 months prior to your desired move date.
