My family has called Fayetteville home for 30 years. I love Northwest Arkansas & introducing folks to all it has to offer! I have 17 years of successful wholesale, marketing, and training experience in outside sales in Benton, Carroll & Washington counties prior to starting my real estate career in 2005. Real estate connects me to clients in a very personal way. Happy clients are more important than just "closing the deal". When I'm not working, I like to travel (preferably by car), kayak & hike. I work in my yard (a lot) and even make a feeble attempt at vegetable gardening. I enjoy cooking(but not baking), dining out and sharing a nice bottle of wine with my husband and friends.
My Client Reviews
Carmen was such a blessing to work with. As a first time home buyer, she answered all of the questions I had promptly and helped me to understand the process of purchasing a home. She was quick with getting paperwork turned over, responding to offer suggestions, and made recommendations on properties that I was interested in to help with the decision making. I cannot recommend Carmen enough as a Real Estate Agent. I will definitely work with her again on the next property I look for in the future.
Carmen is hands down the best realtor I could ever imagine. She worked with my wife and I for over a year to find an ideal house for us, and despite our pickiness, she never pushed us towards a house we didn't like or made us feel bad for the length of time it took us to find a house. Carmen was always friendly and kind. She's the kind of person who brightens your day whenever you talk to her. And not only that, but she's sharp as a tack. She would regularly point out elements of concern in houses that had them, and would ease my fears as a first-time homebuyer about things that I shouldn't have made me worry. She was also beyond amazing in the negotiation process. She was spot on every time we considered offering about whether the house was over or undervalued and would help us negotiate the price down (even though that meant less commission for her!!!) when the house was overpriced. I literally cannot say enough good about Carmen, and I have already recommended her to all of my friends. If you aren't sure about who to pick for a realtor, without question, you should pick Carmen.
Carmen was terrific! We could not have asked for a better agent. She helped us find our dream home even while we were still living in another state. She absolutely goes above and beyond for her clients!
Carmen went above and beyond in helping us find our dream forever home as first time home buyers, and we could not be more grateful for her expertise and professionalism throughout our entire home search and buying process. During the entire search we felt like she had our back in making sure we were not buying the wrong home, and she always gave us honest input about how much work a house would take to update. Even when we were away, she took the time to do remote virtual viewings, which we appreciated very much. She even helped us negotiate our final offer down 45k, which in this market is astounding! If you are looking for someone who will make sure to help you find exactly what you want, not pressure you into anything, and have your back the entire way, especially in this difficult market, Carmen is your agent!
Carmen was not only on top of things but also she was able to see the style house we were interested in very quickly and recommend houses. She is very kind and honest. Anytime I texted her about a house, she would rapidly respond and get us a tour of it. She made the process of paperwork and figuring out an offer easy and straightforward for first time home buyers. I would recommend her services to anyone!

Carmen was a gracious guide in a difficult marketplace. She has been doing this for many years and her experience was a great benefit to first-time homebuyers. Carmen was also accessible and communicative throughout the whole process. Thanks Carmen!
We relocated from Benton to Prairie Grove, Arkansas. We found Carmen through a referral and Iâm so grateful that we did!! She found us exactly what we wanted within our budget rather quickly. She is very organized, detail- oriented and responsive! Anytime I had a question about anything she gladly picked the phone up to talk to me!! Will be referring her as well as working with her again in the future!
Carmen was absolutely amazing! She knew the entire area very well and showed us exactly what we were looking for. Her knowledge of the loan process is unmatched. As a soldier in the United States Army I used a VA loan in the purchase of my home. Carmen knew all the in and out's of the VA loan process and even helped get me out of a loan with a company thar was trying to add unnecessary fees into my loan, saving me thousands. Truly is at the top of all real estate agents in this area and will only use her services in any future home buying or selling endeavors.

Carmen is fabulous. She is always two steps ahead and available to serve her clients. Carmen cares about her clients and prioritizes their best interests. Highly recommend Carmen!
We were beyond satisfied with Carmen's service. She has many years of experience in the NWA, and was very honest about things that she thought would be a red flag (both in the house and the location). Carmen has incredible negation skills! It really felt like she fought for us. She is professional, patient, and is a pleasure to work with. We recommend her 100%.
We have bought and sold many properties over the past 20 years and Carmen Hennelly is absolutely the best agent we have had the pleasure to work with. She is absolutely on top of everything from beginning to end! No detail is missed with Carmen on your side working the negotiation process, inspection - all the way to closing. Hope to be able to work with her again!
We are relocating from New York City and Carmen was recommended to us by a trusted friend. As you can imagine, Northwest Arkansas is quite a change from NYC. Carmen has invested a great deal of energy getting to know our family's needs, our hopes, and our aspirations. Carmen has been so generous with her time, educating us on the different towns and neighborhoods. There are so many choices here! Carmen's love of this community, as well as her pride and commitment to this community, is inspiring. Any trepidations we may have felt concerning this big move have turned into excitement. I strongly recommend Carmen to others relocating from out-of-town.

Carmen was absolutely amazing to work with! Her knowledge & attention to detail both within the home and of the area are unmatched. She was incredibly patient, responsive & beyond helpful throughout our home search and we would not have ended up in our dream home without her!
I would highly recommend Carmen to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in North West Arkansas. She helped us find our first home out here and was incredibly professional and detail oriented throughout the entire process. She is an amazing realtor who is very knowledgeable about this area which was a huge help when making those life changing decisions. She goes above and beyond to make sure her clients are satisfied.
Carmen was excellent to work with. We were first time home buyers and Carmen listened to our needs and was always looking out for our best interest. She was thorough and encouraging. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a home in North West Arkansas.
We had the pleasure of working with Carmen to help sell our home. She is a true professional that knows her business. She helped us through the process and was very responsive to our many questions. She has a great feel for the market and what we should and should do to help sell our house. If asked I would highly recommend her for any real estate need.
Carmen made the process of finding and buying our first home possible. We were thrown ever hurdle imaginable, including a global pandemic, and she stuck to her stride to make sure we were taken care of from start to finish. I appreciate her willingness to shoot you straight, communicating the truth the way a friend or family member would. She is easy to work with, dedicated to finding the perfect home, knowledgeable about every single detail, and will work tirelessly until the keys are in your hand. We are forever grateful to her!
Carmen is a wonderful realtor! She is so knowledgeable about the community and surrounding areas. She helped us so much and was able to point out pros and cons for us to consider. She is prompt and organized. You'll be so happy you called her to help you find your perfect home.
Carmen helped us find our home and when it came time to sell it we weren't going to use anyone else. She had our house on the market right away and we had three offers the first day! We sold our house immediately and she helped guide us through the whole thing. Carmen is nothing short of amazing and she will go to bat for you when and if you need it. She has your back every step of the way.
Carmen is fantastic! Not only is she an expert in her field, she is also fun to work with. She went above and beyond to help us find our dream home. Once we found our home she helped us make a fair offer and was persistent with the sellers to make sure that everything was done before we closed on the house. I would not have chosen anyone else to help us through this process.
Carmen sold an investment property for us in record time with multiple offers. Not living in the area, it was important for us to have a real estate professional who could be our legs on the ground there. She took care of everything and made it a very smooth transition from seller to buyer. Her knowledge, attention to detail and intelligence made selling our home a breeze!
Being a first time home buyer, Carmen made this transition extremely easy for me. She was there to answer all my questions and guide me to find the perfect house for me. She is extremely helpful, knowledgeable , and does not stop until she helps you find the house that you're looking for. If I ever buy another house I'm definitely calling Carmen .
Being that my wife and I were first time home buyers, we were very fortunate to have someone as experienced as Carmen to help us through the jouney. From finding the home of our dreams to closing on on it, she was there every step of the way to explain the process and answer questions making the experience easy and understandable. It was a pleasure working with her.
Carmen did a great job in helping me find a new home in NW Arkansas! She was very friendly, flexible, and knowledgeable about the area. She provided many great details about things to do since I am not from the area. She was also very knowledgeable about all the requirements to get everything done. She kept on top of the process from beginning to end and had many connections that were able to help get everything done on time. She did a great job negotiating the deal with the builder to ensure I had what I needed.
Choosing Carmen as our realtor was the best decision we could have made. She knows the area of Fayetteville, she has a strong knowledge of the ins & outs of different subdivisions and speaks with a great deal of experience. Her assistance didn't stop with choosing the house, it continued through the closing process with USAA and the sellers. We could not have asked for, or gotten a better real estate agent than Carmen Hennelly.
Carmen was very understanding and worked hard to make sure we got what we wanted in a house. She really advocated for our needs and on our behalf. Would definitely use her again!
Carmen knows the area better than almost anybody else. She helped us find a great starter home that set us up to put us in a position for upsizing to our next house. She was extremely patient andwalked us through every step along the way.
Carmen helped us find a dream home that was *literally* beyond our wildest dreams. And for first-time home buyers who knew very little about buying a house, I'll have to admit we were incredibly picky! She was so patient with us. Seriously--if you're looking for someone who has your best interest at heart and will conduct business with absolute integrity (and fun), she's your gal. She knew about the house we purchased before it ever even went on the market, and she knew it was perfect for us. It was a hot commodity, but she got us in to see it right away. In fact, we were the first to see it. We were able to buy it within 24 hours of it being listed! She is on the BALL! I really can't say enough good things about her as a realtor and as a person. Whether it's for listing or buying, just know that you won't be disappointed!
After a cross-country move, it was wonderful working with Carmen in my search for a new home in an unfamiliar region. She was completely knowledgeable about the real estate environment, and she supplied me with quick information about the houses that became available in a very hot market. Carmen listened to my needs and seemed to intuitively know what features I would like or dislike in a home. I am thrilled with the home I bought. It is the perfect size for me, with a convenient drive to work and shopping. The neighbors are outstanding. My first offer on the home was turned down, but a few days later, my offer was accepted. I am grateful for Carmen's determination and negotiating skills to help me get the home I wanted.
Carmen helped us find a home to rent upon moving from Dallas. We felt like we ran her ragged in trying to find a house within our price line and in a timely manner. She found us the perfect place, and after a year, she helped us buy a home. The only thing more stressful than finding a home is the process in the purchasing of the home.Carmen made both as painless as possible. With her experience in the area, she referred us to people that we felt were honest and working in our best interest. In selecting a home, she made us feel that we were her top priority, despite the volume of her work helping others. When we moved in, she was there to follow up on any issues, and even loaned us a wheelbarrow and a pickaxe! How do you properly thank someone for all this? If someone knows, please let me know. Carmen is the BEST!
I found Carmen on a fluke. I was working with another realtor that didn't have my best interest and I was frustrated! At work, I mentioned my frustration and a coworker gave me Carmen's name. I went to my realtor, sitting in his office, told him I was thinking about changing realtors. He allowed me to call Carmen from his desk phone, Carmen answered and I explained the situation. We were All on speaker, she was upbeat and said she would love to help me out. We hung up, I said my goodbyes to Mr. Realtor and in a half hour I was in Carmen's office. Carmen took me under her wing and allowed me to share my life changing divorce with her. She was knowledgeable, kind, hard working, dedicated, patient and most of all; a breath of fresh air. Buying a new home and transitioning in life is stressful and I was able to breathe and relax. Carmen helped offset most of my worries!!!! I am thankful she entered my life. If I ever need to sell or buy a home, I will only work with Carmen. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy or sell. It doesn't matter the challenges involved, I can assure you Carmen will meet them and exceed all expectations. Carmen will guide you to your dream home!!! Thanks Carmen.
We were in the market to find a small home close to campus for our son to live in while attending UofA and she listened to what we were wanting as far as size, location and price and within a couple days she had several options ready for us to look at. We made an offer that same day!!! Four years later we went back to Carmen to help us sell this same house. Holy cow she was amazing! We had an offer within 24 hours. Can't thank her enough for being so depending and extremely friendly, easy to be with and talk to.
If you want something done right usually you have to do it yourself! Not here, Carmen will treat any client like a family member and will make sure everything you need gets done. Great work ethic, always answers promptly and super business savvy. If you need to buy or sell, Carmen needs to be your choice.
Tim & Keena M.
We have bought 7 houses, two of them from Carmen. She also listed those same two, the latter when we moved out of state. I can honestly say that Carmen is, hands down, the best agent we have ever had. She is extremely communicative and keeps you apprised of everything going on. I never had to call her to ask where we were in the process or what to expect next. I have seen her go above and beyond for so many of her clients, from planting flowers to improve curb appeal to touch up painting etc. Whatever it takes to sell your house. She's not afraid of a long day of house hunting either. We like to look at everything we can possibly see in a weekend and then make a decision. She hung in there with us and was great to point out things to consider along the way that we may not have thought of otherwise. She's awesome!

As we impatiently wait for spring to arrive, we thought we'd spend our time exploring just how many things there is to do in Bella Vista. Fun fact, it is one of the most outdoor-oriented towns in NWA. With over 150 miles of mountain biking and multi-use trails, 7 recreation lakes, 6 golf courses, disc golf, pickleball courts, and much more, it is the perfect place for the active crowd to buy a home. Now something to keep in mind, these benefits are for Bella Vista residents so keep that in min...
