In his long tenure as a real estate expert, Carmine has been involved not only as a salesperson but was a Broker/Manager of a large franchise office, and was a successful owner of his own Century 21 office in the area before he decided to return full time to sales.


“I enjoy helping my clients, many of which, have become friends, find the perfect home or sell their home at the best possible price”.
