Hey there…

I'm Karloc (Carlos) Paden, REALTOR®

Prior to that, I spent seven years as a mortgage lender, gaining valuable insights into the financial side of real estate transactions. My journey in the real estate industry has been marked by passion, dedication, and a relentless commitment to helping clients achieve their real estate dreams.

My primary focus has always been on assisting clients in selling, buying, relocating and or investing in properties.

My satisfaction comes from seeing the joy on my client’s faces when they find the perfect home or successfully close a deal.

For nearly a decade, I have been the preferred agent for this organization, aiding their new and current employees in relocating to the vibrant Tacoma area and securing new homes. This partnership speaks to my reliability, trustworthiness, and ability to deliver results consistently.

Additionally, I have had the privilege of working closely with the Pierce County Housing Authority, serving as their listing agent and overseeing the sale of their real estate portfolio. This experience has allowed me to gain unique insights into the intricacies of public housing and property management, further enriching my skill set.

I am a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, a testament to my proficiency in handling high-end real estate transactions. I understand the unique demands of the luxury market and can provide the exceptional service that clients in this segment deserve.

One of my standout qualities as a real estate agent is my tenacity. I never shy away from a challenge and will go to great lengths to find solutions that benefit my clients. My negotiation skills are strong, ensuring that I secure the best possible deals on behalf of those I represent.

In addition to my real estate credentials, I hold certificates in Mediation Training and Collaborative Law. These skills enable me to navigate complex negotiations and resolve disputes with finesse, ensuring that transactions proceed smoothly.

Pet Peeve


Duh, you priced it $200,000 under market value.

The Hood I Call


I currently call Sunnylea home. Some of my favourite places include place 1, place 2, place 3, place 4 and place 5.

My Real Estate


I’m a sucker for craftsman style, cape-cod type homes. Cedar shakes, board & batten siding, subway tiles & shiplap walls make me swoon.

After Hours


When I’m not working you’ll find me playing tennis, taking a boat ride or trying to herd my 4 children in 12 different directions.

My Happy


There’s no place that helps me unwind better than spending time with family & friends at my beach house.*

*provided of course that everyone rinses the sand off their feet before coming inside. 🙂
