Making her way from Alaska in 2003 to attend Santa Barbara City College, Carmen instantly fell in love with Santa Barbara's natural beauty and year-round warm sunny weather. She later went on to complete her education at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Global Studies. Her penchant for meeting new people and exploring new places led her to pursue extensive travel overseas, ultimately leading her to tour thirty-six countries in the past ten years.
Carmen strives to make every client feel confident about buying or selling a home. Her dedication to providing exceptional service, professional guidance with integrity and expertise, and honest and consistent communication are the keys to her success, and what makes her a vital part of the Calcagno & Hamilton team.
In addition to helping her clients successfully navigate the world of real estate, Carmen is a volunteer with the Girls Inc. Boost tutoring program, which offers one-on-one help with homework and study skills, aiming to "boost" each girl's abilities to succeed in school. She also has the honor of being a mentor with the Big Brother Big Sister organization.
Carmen recognizes the natural splendor, vibrancy, and strong community here, and in her free time can be found enjoying Santa Barbara's waterfront and all the beauty our area has to offer.
