I would recommend Carmen and her staff to anyone and everyone! Among other wonderful attributes, she never lost patience with our indecision and constant change of criteria, she is incredibly knowledgeable about the area, and she never tried to pressure us into anything. She was and remains constantly accessible – no message remains unanswered for more than five minutes! We always felt that Carmen CARED about us and wanted to ensure that we made the decisions that were right for us. She truly is a gem in a field where they are often hard to find.Allen and Marilyn Sigal
Thanks so much for all of your hard work in finding us the perfect home in Scottsdale. As you know, we started with another agent but it quickly became obvious that he didn’t know much about Scottsdale golf communities. It was such a refreshing change when we switched to you. I know you put in many many hours searching and previewing properties on our behalf. I appreciated your insights and comments about the properties we were considering. You were very frank and truthful about the pros and cons of each property.Rick and Brigitte Franchuk
Working with Carmen’s team was a fantastic experience. Being a buyer from Alberta, Canada, I was not familiar at all with the differences in the Phoenix areas and communities. They were so helpful in narrowing down our choices after hearing our criteria. When we arrived in Phoenix to view properties, it was like spending the day with good friends. The closing process was also very easy with Carmen’s team and all my questions were answered quickly. I would recommend Carmen’s team to anybody!Mark Bateman
Carmen is a true professional. She approaches her job with the precision, dedication and excellence you’d expect from a highly trained legal professional – which is exactly what she was in a prior life. And unlike a lot of lawyers I know, she always makes you feel welcome and is happy to help. What I like best is that she offers very high content, high quality information about sales trends and home prices which is invaluable to someone like me that’s not from the area. In one day touring homes with Carmen, I felt like I took a graduate course in Real Estate and was able to tender my first bid with confidence.
My wife and I were lucky enough to select Carmen to be our realtor in Scottsdale Arizona. We are from Kansas City and did not know the area or details of purchasing a home in AZ. Carmen led us with great expertise from the selection process through the purchase of a home in Troon North. She handled all the details of inspections, walk-through, appraisal, and selection of a great closing agent. She and her excellent team kept us informed on a daily basis through phone calls and e-mails. We were able to complete the transaction quickly and without ever flying to AZ except for the home selection. This saved us a great deal of money and expedited the purchase process. She and her closing agent even arranged for us to close in KC. Carmen oversaw many items along the way that we never thought a realtor would consider their job. Every few days we would say to ourselves that we can’t believe she took care of that and what a difference it made. We would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in Scottsdale.Jeff and Terri Shaw
We wanted a home in Scottsdale but didn’t know where to start. We found your web site and were impressed with the wealth of information that was available. We contacted Carmen and described what we wanted. Rather than trying to “sell” us a home, she partnered with us to find the perfect home for our lifestyle and needs – an amazing deal on foreclosure in a great location. She made the buying process extremely easy and was incredibly helpful. We trusted her knowledge and expertise and appreciated her attention to detail. After we took possession of the home, she continued to provide outstanding service by referring us to numerous service professionals (insurance, cleaning service, decorator, property check, etc.). Carmen is a true expert and we can’t thank her enough. We are so happy!Dean and Lori Johnson
Carmen was extremely helpful to us in finding a home in Phoenix. As Canadians, we relied heavily on her extensive knowledge of the different communities in Phoenix. She skillfully and patiently guided us through the process of buying, explaining how it works in the US so that we understood the entire process. One of the things I really appreciated about Carmen is her quick response time. She was very quick to respond to emails and almost always answered her phone. Overall, Carmen was very thorough, accessible and very knowledgeable about all areas of real estate and the local area. I’d highly recommend Carmen Brodeur if you need a Realtor in the Phoenix area.
Carmen acted for a group of five couples in helping us find a house in North Scottsdale for $1.325MM. The location was exactly what we were looking for and the house and yard exceeded our group’s expectations. Her knowledge and expertise of the Scottsdale market and her recommendations throughout the negotiations were very helpful. It is clear Carmen has her client’s best interests in mind throughout all of her dealings and her professional approach to her work was evident throughout. Sometimes it is difficult acting for a large group of people and Carmen was able to do so ensuring all participants were given the chance to express their views.Our group was impressed with Carmen’s attentiveness to detail and would recommend her to anyone looking for a property in the Scottsdale market. Regardless of the size and value of property you are looking, I am sure Carmen will find you something suitable.M. Brown
Carmen is an excellent realtor and provided detailed, attentive service to help me find my home. Her legal background and extensive knowledge of the Scottsdale real estate market gave me an advantage in finding my ideal property at an excellent price. I would highly recommend Carmen to anyone looking for a personable, detail-oriented realtor with a high level of expertise in the local market.

I would highly recommend Carmen and her team to anyone buying or selling a home. I came across Carmen’s profile on Zillow after looking at many. I was planning on relocating from the east coast and needed someone experienced as both a buyer’s agent and relocation expert. I chose Carmen based on her specialties and highly positive reviews.My purchase process was seamless from the start with the set up of a personal search portal we used to narrow the home choices. I preferred to make a few trips to see the homes in person, but Carmen and her team were willing to do the home viewings on my behalf. Each time I came for the showings, everything was well planned and executed. The entire team was very responsive, organized and helpful in guiding me through each step of the process. The house I chose had a very short purchase timeline which could have been an issue if the process had not been well planned and facilitated. I could not have asked anything more from the team.Cheryl F.
We had talked for a long time about buying a vacation home in a warm climate to have an escape from our cold winters. However, buying real estate can be a daunting task for those who are not familiar with the intricacies of the market and legal contracts. Marc and Carmen were extremely proficient and gave excellent advice in all of these areas of the buying process. We corresponded easily by email and phone prior to our trip to Scottsdale to make sure we had everything in place to make a decision quickly if we found the right property while we were there. By the time we arrived Marc and Carmen had narrowed our search for homes that met our requirements and we made an offer on the 4th day of our 5 day trip. Our new vacation home in North Scottsdale is everything we had hoped for and more. We couldn’t be happier!

We just happened to ask Carmen to help up find a condo in Scottsdale. It was a completely random selection. We were impressed from the get-go. She has a legal background so understands the ins and outs of the real estate business and has a good handle on the financing options. She also knows the area quite well. We were able to make our purchase remotely. She made sure that everything was done in a timely manner. She is definitely top-notch!Kathy Oberlin
My family and I would just like to take a minute to thank you for all of the hard work you put into making our home buying trip successful. Although the process isn’t over, we are very appreciative of the care and attention that has been paid to us. We would like to let you know how accommodating and professional we thought you were throughout the weekend. You explained the pros and cons about buying in certain areas, but didn’t discourage us, or try to impose your personal opinions. You worked very hard to find us many exciting places to view. We look forward to the remainder of the process and will be talking to others about our experience.

Thank you so much for helping me find the perfect home for my son and I. Lisa is a true professional. It took quite awhile to find our home, since I knew just what I wanted and what area I wanted to be in. Lisa never gave up on me. She was very patient and never pressured me. I felt she truly wanted me to be happy with the purchase I made and not just anxious to make a sale. She was very on top of everything and if other agents or the escrow company were not, she was on them until they came through. Lisa made sure I had everything I needed done and helped me, so much, through the process. She made it easy! Even after I closed she has continued to give me referrals and help me in any way that she can. She is a true gem!!
Carmen, Lisa and team were exceptional to work with. At the beginning of our search, we found the web portal very efficient and useful in narrowing things down, given that we are Canadian buyers. Our viewings when we were physically present in Scottsdale were very well organized, and the lead up to the closing process spared no detail. Carmen and her team went above and beyond expectations through the final walkthrough and even following closing. We would highly recommend Carmen, Lisa, and their firm to anyone exploring the Scottsdale market, and wishing to work with a professional, responsive team.

This was my first home purchase and Ariel Bierl from Trillium Properties was professional, knowledgeable, courteous and patient from the minute we first spoke. Even those she referred me to for an inspection and for finance were exceptional; the mortgage broker, Lillian Wong of imortgage saved me thousands.
Ariel took the time to explain things I wasn’t clear on and walked me through the process for a smooth and seamless home purchase. Her knowledge of all the communities was impressive and she pre-screened the properties to the extent that I did not feel a minute of my time had been wasted. She went way above my expectations in too many ways to list here, but she was attentive, prompt and intuitive at every stage. She took a genuine interest in my purchase and offered honest and candid criticism of each and every property we viewed. At no point did my full trust in her professionalism or candor wane.
Her support team and title agency was equally exceptional, again supporting me through this stressful time. A sincere and heartfelt thank you to Ariel and her team on a wonderful job!
We used Trillium Properties to buy our new home in Scottsdale. We received excellent and incomparable service from Carmen, the owner, and her team. We initially chose Carmen because we saw on the internet that she had received her law degree in Alberta, Canada. As Canadians this appealed to us because we knew she would have the expertise of buying from the Canadian perspective, especially in the legal field . Since she now lives in Arizona, her knowledge is also applicable to her U.S. clients
Our personal agent was Ariel. She was not only extremely knowledgeable and pleasant to work with, but accommodating to our every need – excelente servicio! As well, support staff did an excellent job being attentive to every detail.
I would highly recommend Trillium Properties to anyone considering the purchase of property in Arizona.
We had a wonderful “shopping experience” with Lisa Kemper at Trillium Properties. Lisa is very helpful and knowledgeable about the Scottsdale community. She showed great patience and professionalism with our many questions. Lisa went above and beyond in assisting with the closing process. We were out of country during the closing and Lisa frequently made visits to the condo in our absence. She was our eyes and ears during the closing. I would highly recommend Lisa if you’re considering a home purchase in the Scottsdale area.Sandi and Jost Rittershaus
