We chose Carlo Bustamante after interviewing a total of 5 REALTORS. We found Carlo to be very responsive to our queries, professional in his demeanor and overall, extremely pleasant to work with. Our experience with Carlo was amazing and we’re ecstatic with the results. He didn’t settle for anything less than what we wanted, and gave us honest opinions when he thought we could do better. Long story short, he sold our condo in 4 days for more than we expected and found our dream home under budget. Be it selling your home or searching for a new one, we give Carlo our highest recommendation!

I have worked with several real estate agents in my life. But working with Carlo was truly an exceptional experience.
Not only was his demeanour professional at all times, he worked exceptionally hard at making our decision to purchase an informed, comfortable and easy one.
He is incredibly knowledgeable about the Sunstone properties and this made us very confident in working with him.
I would absolutely recommend him as an agent who will go out of his way to ensure your experience in real estate, is exactly what you deserve and want.
- Mita Naidu
Working with Carlo as our selling agent on our home at Sunstone was the best decision.
We have nothing but positive things to say about our experience in dealing with him; he was confident, organized and enthusiastic from day one. What really made a difference was the dedication Carlo showed by being at every showing, open house and even to answer our questions. His professionalism was second to none. The excellent rapport he had with potential buyers and other realtors ultimately sold our home in record time! We would recommend Carlo as a realtor to anyone and everyone.
- C&C Premack
Carlo SOLD our home at Sunstone. Carlo has been a pleasure to work with, going above and beyond to ensure the stresses of selling our home was kept to a minimum. He was very prompt to attend to our questions and updated us on a regular basis, all with a very honest and optimistic outlook. He was able to sell our home in a very quick time frame and was a great advocate for us as the seller. We would highly recommend Carlo as a reputable, professional and very personable Realtor!

I would like to tell you how fortunate I was to have met and hired Carlo Bustamante to sell our home at Sunstone. Right from our first meeting Carlo exuded the professionalism one would expect and hope for when making such am important decision like looking for and purchasing/selling a home. Carlo exceeded our expectations in the manner he conducted our business with him and with the other realtors involved. Always courteous, understanding and efficient. It was not a pleasant experience dealing with the other realtors but Carlo maintained integrity and professionalism all the way. When I was feeling nervous and worried about purchasing and completing the deal, Carlo alleviated my fears and assured me everything was going to work out...and it did. I will say we had no hesitation in hiring Carlo for both the purchase of my new home and the sale of my home at Radiance. In all honesty, had it not been for the effort, creativity and commitment to our goal neither deal would have happened. We are so happy in our home and will continue to refer our friends and family to Carlo. We consider him not only a great realtor but a friend.
- Gail Moizis
We chose Carlo because of his professionalism and enthusiasm. Carlo was hard working and we were impressed by the fact that he responded almost instantly to any questions or requests. We found him to be sincerely concerned helping us find the perfect home and his tireless efforts were instrumental in our success. We will be definitely recommending Carlo who wants an honest, hard working real estate advisor. Thanks Carlo.
- Simon and Supipi Duffy
After no offers from our previous realtor, we decided to deal with Carlo based on a referral. The service and personal attention we received from him was exceptional. He is an individual who is competent, personable, committed, and professional from start to finish. Carlo’s ability to effectively market made the difficult task of listing and selling our unit a very pleasant experience. His willingness to go above and beyond is appreciated. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling I would highly recommend Carlo to help you with this life-changing move. We could not have asked for a better realtor.
- Trevor and Chantele David
Carlo was the perfect realtor for us as first-time buyers. He was incredibly patient and understanding in helping us understand everything about the process. Something that was very important to us was finding a realtor who was honest and down-to-Earth; Carlo was great about never making us feel pressured and always gave us his honest opinion. It was a pleasure to have Carlo be a part of finding our perfect home.
- Andrew Kumar + Lauren Ufford
We chose Carlo Bustamante for his energy, his attention to detail and for listening to what it was we wanted and needed in both buying a home and selling our existing home. He came through for us on all counts. When we bought the townhouse of our dreams, Carlo helped us find all the details we needed to put the winning offer on the table. In selling our home, Carlo quickly arranged for great photos and an HD video tour and two sharp looking flyers — one for canvassing and drops to other real estate offices, the other for the open house hosting. The open house weekend attracted scores of families — big crowds that he managed very well. He followed up with every prospect. Carlo gave us updates, emails, phone calls and personal visits along the way. Our sale was quick. His negotiation skills were great and his commitment to us was his top priority. Check out Carlo Bustamante for your buying or selling — we think you’ll like him as much as we did.
- Bill Marshall and Kate Smith
Positive energy and lots of patience is how we would describe Carlo but we realized that the best trait was that he understood us and our requirements right to the point. Carlo would only recommend houses which he thought we would like and which had features from our wish list and discussions. He always gave us space and time to think about our options which is very essential in this tiring, lengthy and at times disheartening process. Small things like pointing out the negative features of a house or giving us a few minutes alone to evaluate our thoughts at each viewing added up to an extremely professional yet very personal experience.
We also realized how important it is to have not just a realtor but a good realtor in the biggest purchase of our lives. Thanks!!
- Parul and Rohit
Carlo was not only a great real estate agent, as well as a huge help in our family’s search for a new home, but also a reliable source for advice and support during this stressful search. Carlo was always readily available to answer questions and offer advice as well as suggestions relating to possible home options. He was patient, well informed about the various properties, and quick to find new listings when the old ones proved not to be quite what we were looking for. We would like to thank Carlo for his assistance, and would recommend his services to anyone looking to find their dream home.
One more time, thank you so much for your help and everything done for us!
- Jeremy, Lorena and Malina Hapchina
Carlo’s personality and enthusiasm made buying our first home such wonderful and positive experience. He displayed an exceptional dedication to helping us find a home that suited all of our family’s needs. Always readily available to answer our questions and concerns, his patience and understanding made us feel comfortable through every step of the way. We value Carlo’s knowledge and expertise within the industry and look forward to working with him again in the future!

We had the privilege recently of meeting Carlo Bustamante during our search for a townhouse in Burnaby. As we were new to the area we needed someone we could trust and rely on to find us the perfect space for our family and dogs. Carlo immediately got to work on showing us different properties, fully taking into account our price range and specific needs and wants. He also suggested other areas we hadn’t even thought of which may have been suitable locations. Within a very short period of time he hit the nail on the head; and subsequently negotiated a fair price for a unit which checked off every item on our wish list. During the entire process he kept in close contact, answered all our questions and concerns promptly, and went out of his way to meet us in convenient locations closer to our home and work. On delivery of the keys he even offered to help unpack the van (and I’m sure he would have gladly followed through if we had accepted!). Carlo has a very pleasing personality and we found him to be very sincere. We were very impressed with his after-sales service and follow-up calls. We have engaged the services of quite a few realtors over the years, but have honestly never had a better experience than with Carlo. We definitely recommend him and he’ll be the first person we call when we sell this house (which won’t be for a long time though:)

This being my first house purchase I have to say I felt very fortunate to have found and worked with Carlo Bustamante in this important endeavor. Not only was he professional – well informed and reachable, he was always calm and reasonable. He didn’t allow me to get caught up in any hype and I always felt that he had my best interests in mind. Oh, and Carlo clearly loves his job, works hard and I’ve already recommended Carlo to all of my friends in search of their next home and will continue to do so.
- Junaid Elahi
As a first time homebuyer, my first weeks of searching certainly didn’t amount to the kind of experience I was hoping to have. From home visits marred by lack of honesty and homeowner gimmicks, suffice it to say we were less than enthused. It was at this point that we turned to Carlo Bustamante. Having a real estate agent on our side at the caliber of Carlo was a godsend and changed the entire tone and even speed of our house hunt. One of the biggest differences we saw was the quality of properties that Carlo managed to find for us. My busy schedule mixed with my lack of knowledge regarding new developments led to a paucity in the amount of housing I was finding that matched the qualities I desired. With Carlo on board, we had many more properties that were more our style and we ended up buying a house that Carlo had sourced for us. This “on the button” sourcing of properties also made it possible for us to find the perfect home for us in just under a month of house hunting. We didn’t think that time line was even possible until we met Carlo. Carlo was also wonderful at booking appointments that matched our busy schedule, when our house hunting got serious he was always able to book us appointments even at short notice. With the real estate market as it is, timing certainly is everything and we never had to worry about timing when it came to appointments. When it came down to final negotiations and contract signing, we were most pleased with the availability of Carlo to have things done within 24 hours and any questions answered in the most diligent nature. With the negotiations themselves, Carlo was able to negotiate not only the best deal but also helped us get final adjustments made with the house, that we thought perhaps would be turned down. Carlo worked his magic and made things happen for us. At the end of the day, we have a new home that we couldn’t be happier with and with Carlo standing by our side, house hunting became a pleasure from first meeting to final hand over of keys. I therefore with no reservations whatsoever recommend Carlo as an amazing real estate agent who will make your house hunting an enjoyable and successful one.
