Contact Carlo Bustamante:
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!

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.

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 :)

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 which 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.

Carlo assisted me through my very first purchase. As one might expect,
I was quite nervous. It was obvious from the start though that Carlo was
genuinely concerned with me finding a place that would suit both my needs
and my budget. I highly recommend him to friends and strangers alike."
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.
Special thanks to Carlo on a great job being our realtor. He found us the house of our dreams. His ideas on how to sell our old place put us over the top ahead of our competitors. Call you again in a few years for the next step up the property ladder. Thanks again.

As a first time home buyer, 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.
We met Carlo at an open house and liked his very friendly and down-to-earth personality. We asked him to help us with our search for a great starter home and he helped us...patiently...find it! As well as patient, he was also very open and trustworthy and so we had him sell my property as well! Definitely a good choice!!
