We highly recommend her to anyone kicking off the home search process." - Brian W.
"Carlen Sheer made looking for properties in Westchester a breeze. I was supposed to be transferred to the area for a job, and was very unfamiliar with the area. She educated me on the area and showed me tons of properties. She made the whole process easy and worry-free. She sat down with me for a thorough initial consultation to evaluate my needs and wants, and then worked hard to find everything I wanted at a good price. She was a pleasure to work with, and I didn't feel pressured to find a house quickly. Unfortunately, after all her hard work and effort, the job transfer did not happen, but I appreciate all that she did. If a move to Westchester becomes another possibility in my future, I will definitely hire Carlen again. I highly recommend Carlen to both new and experienced home buyers." - Jorden

She also has such a nice, genuine, friendly demeanor." - Stephanie

"Carlen assisted my family in purchasing our first home in 2018. Carlen took us to see quite a few properties, and always was able to provide us accurate and helpful information about each location. As first-time buyers, Carlen's knowledge and experience was of utmost importance to us. Carlen provided us with honest, timely information and earned our trust very quickly.
Carlen was able to negotiate a deal that we were very happy with when we placed an offer (which was accepted) on our new home. Even after we went into contract our apartment, Carlen helped us through the Co-Op Board application and interview process, as well as making sure we were well-informed and well represented for the closing process. I will be sure to recommend Carlen to anyone I know looking for an agent.

endlessly patient, and incredibly generous with her time (including
mornings, evenings, and weekends over the course of several months). She
answered every question and explained every form and every part of the
process clearly and thoroughly. Buying a home in this market is
challenging, but working with Carlen made it as painless and

"Carlen has been amazing to work with! She was personable and easy to talk to from the start. My husband and I were a little all over the place on what we were looking for and she really took the time to help us narrow down and focus on our needs. She was extremely thorough with us on everything and timely in her responses. She also helped us envision what we could do for the different spaces we were shown which was super helpful as it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Carlen has a great eye and we really valued her opinion. Not only did she help us find our first home but she helped us sell our current place and ensured it was a seamless process. Highly recommend her to anyone."
"Carlen has worked really hard to get out our first home in Yonkers, New
York. We were looking to buy a house in Westchester County and she showed
us plenty of houses during our search. She has never pushed us to commit to
any house and always very knowledgeable about the area. She was very
responsive and professional during the whole process. I would highly
recommend her if anyone looking to buy a house in Westchester." - Maggie
"Working with Carlen was such a pleasure. She made looking for a house non
stressful and quite fun. She showed us things in our price range that we
could afford, which was a godsend since many realtors in the past have
shown us apartments that were well out of our range which wasted a lot of
time! Any time I had a question, she always answered my text, email or
phone call very quickly. She was able to also recommend an attorney and
helped guide me through the entire process. She found me the perfect co-op
that I absolutely love and can’t believe that I now have something that I
can call mine. She was even so excited for me, she came over to see how I
decorated my new home. I highly recommend her if you need a realtor! " -Cathy M.
"Carlen was so helpful and wonderful in helping us find our home. We
couldn't be happier! Admittedly, we weren't the easiest clients and always
changed our mind with what kind of home we wanted. Finally, we found the
perfect home for us after about a year later and looking at over 70 houses
with her and we have Carlen to thank for her professionalism and great
patience!" -Jessica C.
"All I can say and my husband would agree is that Carlen Sheer of Houlihan
Lawrence is an asset to that office. She's amazing and articulate and gives
100% and more of time. Whether through phone calls or texting she was
always there for us. Our journey with her is coming to an end because she
found us our wonderful and beautiful home. Thank You Carlen for everything
did for us!!!" -Lorraine C.
"My name is Jacqueline C. My wife and I, happened to meet by Carlen by
chance. She was at a listing of her own. We were so impressed by her
honesty and her knowledge we asked her to be our agent. She has not let us
down. We text or call and she answers our questions almost immediately. If
she doesn't know something , she will research or find an answer for us.
She also make things very personalized and would only send us exactly what
we wanted. She would not bombard us with "what about this" type of
property. She never referred us to anyone else even when it came to our
applications for coop/condo questions or help filling anything out. She
also helped with a list of licensed appraisers, Inspectors and
electricians. She had no loyalty to anyone one person. She just suggested
because all on the list were reliable and professional. If we ever decide
to sell our new home, Carlen will be the listing agent for sure" -Jacqueline C.
"I recently started working with carlen to purchase a coop. Carlene from the
beginning was very knowledgeable and patient with me and my husband, she
answered all our questions. Carlen is also very reachable and always
available if we have questions about the property. She is honestly a very
nice and kind person and the kind of agent that you want working with you.
I would definitely recommend her to all my family and friends because I
have no doubt that they would be satisfied with her as an agent. I can’t
express how happy I am to be working with her" -Suela
"I have nothing but positive things to say about Carlen. She helped me and my husband find our dream home and we are not exactly the easiest people to work with. Picky is an understatement. She took us to every showing we wanted (there were A LOT) and showed us each property with both knowledge and enthusiasm. This was not a quick process for us as it took us almost two years to find our home. She is friendly and kind always greeted us with a warm smile. I would recommend her to anyone looking for their dream home" - Allison
"For the past two years my wife and I have been looking for that perfect
house to make our home. After an exhausting search all over Westchester
County we finally found it in Chappaqua. Carlen was extremely patient and
understanding during our search and was excellent in putting us in touch
with the right people and guiding us throughout the closing process. I
would recommend Carlen for anyone looking for their dream home in
Westchester County" -Eric S.
