About Carla Salazar-Holmes
My philosophy is to go beyond my clients’ expectations by providing my best, personalized service and professionalism with the highest of ethical and moral values.
I earned a degree as an Industrial Engineering in 1992 in Peru, where I am originally from. I have a background in financing in two international Banks in my country, working as a Loan-Sales Supervisor and a Loan Officer. I have also worked in International organizations in Washington DC since 2000; the Organization of American States (OAS) and the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) in the Education Department and Human Resources Department respectively.
I started working as a Real Estate Agent in 2003 and have consistently been part of the Million Dollar Club and Top Producer in the Prince William Association of Realtors.
I am a blessed mother of two children. In my spare time I volunteer for the PTA and different activities in my children’s schools and the day care in my Church in Woodbridge. My fun activities include arts and crafts and sewing projects for my family and my home. In addition, I enjoy working and sharing with people from different cultures and backgrounds. Building lasting long-term relationships is my primary goal. I am a true believer that success is a journey, not a destination. I love to help people to be successful buyers or sellers. I have learned that Real Estate is my passion where I can combine my creativity from having been an Engineer with my vocation in sales to provide my clients the best path to the homeownership.
Buying or selling a house is not only signing a contract or a loan application…It is more than that…It demands time, effective negotiation skills, attention, service, integrity, knowledge of the Real Estate Laws, market knowledge, and high quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work. Tell me where you want to live and I will help you to find the home that fits your family’s needs. If you are selling your home, I can guide you through the process and give you the best tips to make more profit in less time and take the stress out...Do you want to buy a house? Do you know where to start? …Call me, I have the answers. The distance between you and your new home is only a phone call.
In my experience as a Real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home, please contact me.
Give me the opportunity to demonstrate my knowledge and ability, as well as earn your friendship and trust, so you can do business with someone who values your dreams as much as you do. Put my service and ethics to work for you and you will see the difference!
