Carmen J. Macias
As the only daughter of supportive and loving Mexican American parents who instilled into their children the” need to succeed” gene, I learned from a very young age that I would need to use my advantage of being a fluently bi-lingual Latina to assist others.
As a child I remember going to parent teacher conferences with my mother and having to translate what the teacher said to her, as well as in class with fellow students who didn’t quite understand or know how to express themselves to the teacher, I enjoyed the feeling of doing good for someone who just didn’t have the tools to do so themselves.
During my senior year at Bakersfield High School in Bakersfield, California I was hired as an Administrative Assistant in a Real Estate firm. There I assisted primarily the Broker, but also helped out all of the Realtors. The Broker who I assisted had enrolled me in many different sales classes. It was then that I learned that Real Estate was of great interest to me.
My family and I moved to Indianapolis, Indiana in 2009 and took what I had learned in Real Estate and applied it to my career in Leasing; there I had been accredited for Top Sales Consultant and Most Helpful Team player. I quickly advanced to Lead Leasing Agent.
I joined Kelli Membreño and her team at Libertad Real Estate. I decided that I needed to go for the goal and become a Real Estate Professional!
My decision to take this journey and begin a career in Real Estate has been an excellent one. It is truly rewarding helping those in need of finding their perfect home and current/future business owners accomplish their dreams of having the perfect location for success!

I think everybody comes to this world to accomplish a mission and I think my mission is to help my people.
My Husband and I, along with our children came here, to the United States approximately 10 years for business reasons and we fell in love with Indiana and the people here. We decided to stay, and without a doubt, I can say that it was an excellent decision.
I have a husband that I love so much and admire and his name is Luis and we have 3 beautiful children, Lety 15, Jose 14 and Natalia 9 months.
My career in Real Estate began years ago, I started as a Broker assistant, but my dream was to get my License to start my career in Real Estate. One year later I accomplished that dream (with God’s help) by earning my License and since November 2007 I been working for Libertad Real Estate. I am so happy with that decision and since then, my dream of representing and helping my people through real estate and translation has become a reality. I praise God for his help. Every day that I have been given is a blessing that I can help my clients. I love to see how happy they are to get their own home….just as my family and I were so grateful when we purchased our first home.
My motto is: treat each other as you want to be treated; everybody deserves to be treated with excellence.
