After finding no success in selling my home, I decided to work with Carlos. He helped me understand every step of the process. I was given an offer after only two weeks. I highly recommend Alvarado Real Estate Group.

We are very happy with their service, and their community service. We had good help in pricing, staging and all the other details of selling our home. The result was a sale in 2 days.

- D Carlson (Madison)


My wife and I worked with Carlos for over a year to find the right house for us in the very-competitive 2021 Madison housing market. From the beginning, Carlos listened and really cared about what we were looking for, even though we didn’t have the biggest budget. His knowledge of Madison and its neighborhoods was a huge asset. We also really appreciated his patience and support as we went through the process of making many offers that were rejected. We’ve now happily lived in our house for about a year and are thankful that Alvarado was the right firm with the right knowledge and resources to help us get it. Definitely would recommend.

Eliza & Chris

I had an amazing experience working with Carlos and Cristina at Alvarado Real Estate. My partner and I are first time home buyers and they did a great job of explaining everything to us and making sure we were getting exactly what we were looking for. They were kind, honest, and always had our best interest in mind. They never pushed us toward any of their own property’s either. I would go back to them for any services in the future.

Kevin, Madison

Carlos Alvarado and the Alvarado Group were everything I was hoping for in a guide to walk me through the process of selling my home. They were incredibly responsive and on point from the first call to the last text — providing smart advice at each step.

I’d recommend Carlos, Nilda and this team to anyone. That’s why I’m writing my (possibly?) first Google Review right now.

- Kevin, Madison

Janna, Madison

I picked Alvarado Real Estate Group because of their commitment to contribute to the “Own it-Building Black Wealth” initiative and am so glad I did! Every Realtor should join this network/initiative. Carlos Alvarado went above and beyond and was patient and thorough in guiding me through the process.

- Janna, Madison

Jesse, Madison

My partner and I worked with Carlos for almost 6 months to find a home in Madison, and he worked tirelessly to help us bid on houses in an amazingly difficult market. Without Carlos advocating for us, we never would have been able to buy a home! Once we had an accepted offer, the transaction coordinator helped us with all the details we needed for closing and made the whole process a breeze. I highly recommend Alvarado Real Estate Group!

- Jesse, Madison

Adam & Brianna, Madison

Carlos was absolutely wonderful to work with. Being first time home buyers and trying to buy a house in Madison when we currently live in NC was quite intimidating and sounded extremely stressful. Carlos was able to do personalized home video tours and thoroughly explained all the details of the house. His experience really gave us confidence in his opinions about the homes. We truly trusted him in finding a home for us, and he did it in a matter of 2 weeks! He went above and beyond to help us get our home, and for that, we are very thankful. We will be referring everyone we can to him.

- Adam & Brianna, Madison

Steve & Beth, Madison

We are grateful for all of Carlos’ help in selling our two houses. He gave us all the time we needed to explore our options and gently guided us through preparing for sale. He was able to get both houses sold at the same time, making it super easy.Thank you, Carlos!

- Steve & Beth, Madison

Jan O’Neill, Madison

Buying a rental property can be a nail-biting experience, but with Carlos’ guidance, we were able to navigate smoothly through the whole process. He is deeply knowledgeable about the rental market, being a property owner himself, and saved us a lot of time by running the numbers for us BEFORE going to see properties. His patience and calm, coupled with his attention to detail, let us know we were in good hands. We recommend Carlos unreservedly to others!

- Jan O'Neill, Madison

Costanza y Ivan

Carlos and his team were great! During the process of looking for a house, Carlos was always very helpful and available to answer all of our questions and help us make an informed decision. It was our first house so we had thousands of questions and Carlos was always happy to help. We never felt pressured to make a decision and felt more confident having a knowledgeable agent like Carlos. We are very happy with our new house and the entire home buying process that Carlos helped us with.

- Costanza y Ivan


Carlos Alvarado at Alvarado Real Estate Group, and all of his colleagues I have worked with, have been amazing! I had a very complicated legal sale of an investment property, and Carlos has been a wonderful partner and advisor in the process. I am confident that without his guidance and help, I would not be successful in my sale. He has been a pleasure to work with on my next owner-occupied investment property purchase as well! His team is responsible, friendly and very helpful! Thank you all!

Buying a house is more than just finding a place to live…it’s finding a place where you feel at home. Having an agent by your side who is kind, patient, understanding, and who is always looking out for your best interest is crucial. Carlos Alvarado has been an amazing agent in helping us find our perfect home! Good communication is so important during the process of buying a house. Carlos was always present with prompt responses.  He always made sure our questions and concerns were addressed and taken care of. Thank you Carlos and the entire Alvarado Group for all your hard work and professionalism every step of the way! Thank you for helping us accomplish our dream to become homeowners.

- Buyers


Carlos went above and beyond my expectations. I felt as though my best interests and what I wanted were always on the forefront, and Carlos strived to fulfill both. Hehas a vast knowledge and was able to bring in consultations if I needed anything else. Carlos negotiated the best deal, and I couldn’t be happier in my new home.

- Nora


I am a realtor myself. I have practiced in Eugene, OR for about 5 years. When my wife and I decided to relocate to Madison, WI we contacted Carlos on the recommendation of one of my wife’s colleagues. Having completed many transactions in Eugene, as a broker, I felt I knew the process well, but there were many differences between how real estate in Oregon and Wisconsin is done. Also I had only a shakey understanding of the Madison area’s real estate market. Carlos was terrific in helping us learn the area and the process in a short time window of 3 days. I have worked alongside many agents and have seen a broad range of professionalism in the process. Carlos is a great agent. He is patient, knowledgeable, professional, and stays on top of the process throughout the purchase. He helped negotiate a number of closing extensions and kept our transaction amicable with all parties. His company is tremendously helpful with recommendation of contractors and professionals in the trades. In short, I learned a lot about how to be a better agent. If you’re looking for local expertise, a steady hand, and patient counsel then Carlos and Alvarado Real Estate Group are the folks I would recommend.

- Troy


We highly recommend Alvarado Realty Group! Carlos was so knowledgeable and encouraging throughout the process of selling our home. Cristina gave great advice for staging. Both of them were so responsive and made sure we knew what to expect at every step. We worked with a real estate lawyer to review documents, who said that while he usually finds at least small errors in closing documents, everything was exactly right. “You found a good broker,” he said…but we already knew that!

- Sarah


Thank you Carlos, for the time and work you put in to ensure this process went smoothly. I don’t think any other company or agent would have guided us with such care or consideration for our situation. I will recommend The Alvarado Group to everyone I know!

- Katrina


We had a fabulous first-time buying experience with Carlos. He is patient, incredibly knowledgeable, and makes the experience as stress-free as possible. Thank you!!

- Ariana


Very little feels normal in 2020 but with help from Carlos and his team we were able to sell our childhood home from start to close in about two months time. Carlos gave us recommendations about work that we could choose to do to maximize the sale price and connected us to specialists who could help us. We invested in some straightforward updates and made a significant amount over what we spent. Perhaps the best part is the home was sold to another young family eager to build their own memories in our old neighborhood

- Jim


The Alvarado Group did a wonderful job selling my home — Carlos and Cristina were great to work with at every stage of the process. Providing great advice, organizing services for minor repairs, cleaning and maintenance, and respecting my priorities. The listing price they suggested seemed reasonable and I still got offers significantly in excess. I would highly recommend them.

Jess W

We had a great experience working with Carlos as buyers. He was communicative, encouraging, positive, and professional. We felt like he listened carefully to what we wanted and prioritized our needs. The market was extremely competitive. Carlos had innovative ideas about how to get our offer to the top of the pile, and with 9 other offers for the sellers to consider, ours was the one they accepted! We felt informed, prepared, and confident throughout the process of buying our home. We highly recommend Carlos and his team!
- Jess W


Carlos and his team have been so good to work with! So accommodating with our specific needs and schedule, so efficient and prompt with communication, and so sensitive with the complex emotions involved in home buying. I couldn’t recommend them any more highly.

BJ and Gary

We think Carlos is great and a fantastic person and realtor who has organized his business well! He has hired a wonderful staff who has met our requests and needs. Selling a house is NOT a painless process for people who have lived in a house for 35 years but Carlos and his staff have eased our way and addressed our concerns each step of the way. We are very grateful we contacted him and that he was part of our selection process when interviewing potential realtors to select the best one for our job.

Grant & Ana

Our experience with the Alvarado Group could not have been better. It was our first time buying a home in a very competitive seller’s market, so we were expecting a very stressful period before we started the process. From the beginning, Carlos was very calm and reassuring. He was always available to discuss the many questions and concerns we had while looking at homes and weighing our options. Carlos always had our best interests in mind and gave us great advice. What we valued most about the whole process was that Carlos gave us fantastic advice and assistance in preparing our offer to purchase, and during the negotiations following the home inspections. Everything was done quickly and thoroughly and we ended up with much more than what we expected to find within our budget when we began our search for a home. This was due to Carlos’ hard work and expertise. Finally, Sarah helped us with timely information about the preparation for closing, and these steps went very smoothly. In sum, we highly recommend Carlos and the Alvarado Group to any potential home buyers.

- Grant & Ana

Kathryn and Dominik

We worked with Carlos on the purchase of our home and he is an incredibly kind and knowledgeable agent. Since we were relocating from Seattle to Madison, he was very accommodating on all of our needs for questions and concerns on the process. When we got to Madison he was quickly able to show us the houses we wanted to see and narrow down our search. He helped us find and purchase the perfect house for us and we are so grateful for his expertise. He is incredibly patient and compassionate, just what we needed for this process. We highly recommend Carlos.

- Kathryn and Dominik

Brad & Lydia

Carlos and the Alvarado Group were fantastic at guiding us through the home buying process. They made themselves available to answer questions and shared their knowledge with us. Carlos made us feel comfortable with our decision to purchase our home. He made sure we knew what we were getting and it never felt like it was just a sale for him. Carlos and the Alvarado Group were very personable and made us feel as though we were their only client. We could not have bought our first home without Carlos and his team!

Thank you for providing such a great experience for us!

Brent & Kristin

The team at the Alvarado Group went to great lengths to ensure that our home-buying experience was worry-free and enjoyable. Julie, Carlos, Sara, and Kathryn were extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Someone was always available to answer our questions, show us another listing or give us advice. In such a stressful real estate environment, their down-to-earth, honest, non-intimidating approach was very much appreciated.

Manuel, Abby & Isaac Vasquez

Thanks to the Alvarado Group, we enjoyed our home-buying experience. Carlos adjusted to our busy schedules and maintained his positive attitude and great energy throughout, even on those days when we visited 10+ houses. Thanks to his good advice, dedication and patience, Abby and I found the perfect home to welcome little Isaac to. We’re extremely happy with our new place and we’re glad we contacted the Alvarado Group to help us find it. !Gracias!

- Manuel, Abby & Isaac Vasquez


Thanks to all at the Alvarado Group I was able to find the perfect place for me. From the time we started looking it took us less than two months before I closed on the property. Carlos didn’t waste my time showing me places that were outside my price range or outside the location where I was looking. He would also pick me up at work and off we’d go house hunting. Carlos was always cheerful and upbeat and made the process very pleasant. Even after the closing Carlos helped out with a problem I had and made it go away. I couldn’t be happier with my new home or The Alvarado Group.

Pa & David

We were very fortunate to have worked with Carlos Alvarado. Carlos was always available to show us homes that we were interested in. He answered our question honestly and when he didn’t have the answers, he researched them for us. After multiple offers had failed, we started feeling that we would never purchase a home. But Carlos never gave up on us and every week he sent new listings. Just when we were about to give up on becoming first time home buyers, Carlos encouraged us to put in one last offer. We were skeptical because the seller preferred a cash offer, but went ahead anyways. Surprisingly, our offer was accepted and we closed two weeks later. The Alvarado Group was organized and completed necessary documents to ensure a smooth closing. We had never been so stress free through what was supposed to be a tough process. It was an amazing experience how everyone worked together to make our new home possible. Thank you The Alvarado Group.
