Carmela Lummis is a specialist in luxury real estate in Houston including expertise in luxury high-rises. “Real estate was a natural career move for me,” Carmela says. “My first career in banking and wealth management involved identifying clients’ needs, problem-solving, and helping clients to achieve their financial goals. As a real estate professional, I use those skills to guide my buyers and sellers to successfully achieve personal lifestyle goals by helping them purchase or sell a home.” In addition to luxury single-family homes, her sales record includes new construction condominium sales in the River Oaks area. This involved collaborating with developers, architects, designers, contractors, attorneys, marketing specialists, and public relations firms and negotiating with top REALTORS in Houston. Her expert guidance helped buyers through this complicated new construction process from negotiating the contract all the way to completion and closing.

She builds strong rapport putting her client’s needs and concerns first. Carmela’s great attention to detail and tenacity puts her client’s minds at ease as she guides them to the closing table and beyond. “It takes hard work and diligence to get a transaction from offer through closing,” Carmela says. “I love helping my clients find the lifestyle they aspire to.”
