Meet our Team
Prior to becoming a Realtor®, my career began as a general contractor and a mortgage broker. With this specific background, I was able to create a robust database of professional contacts, which helped make me uniquely qualified to oversee your transaction from end-to-end. I have spent many years cultivating this network, all of whom assist me in streamlining the buying and selling process for my customers.
Whether you are buying or selling, the process can be challenging. I work with first time home buyers as well as very experienced investors, and both can be intimidated by the process. Choosing me to assist you in your home buying journey can take a lot of the pressure off, no matter where you are in the process.
In Portuguese, Carvalho means “Oak.” The mighty oak tree is meaningful to me not only as a Realtor®, but it carries a lot of meaning in my family, too. My logo was inspired by a painting by my mother, Goretti Carvalho. I have spent my career developing strong relationships built on a foundation of hard work, dedication, and integrity.
I take pride in promises delivered. Trust the OAK. I look forward to leveraging my experience, knowledge, and resources to serve your real estate needs.
