Clients are saying...

"Karen provided a friendly and professional service. We really appreciate her quick work in finding a home that was right for our family."

"Karen was kind, caring, thoughtful, pleasant, good-humored and very much available to me whenever I needed information or advice. She was great about coordinating with lawyers and other agents, and never refused to provide assistance when asked. She also is a great resource for finding trustworthy and reasonably-priced professionals to help with repairs, financing, moving, design services, et al. My interactions with her were always positive. There were a few times when I thought perhaps she wasn't as aware of details in negotiations as I expected, but then I was really busy and distracted during the period between making an offer and closing, and perhaps I expected too much of her when it came to reading and retaining all the information in property inspections, disclosures, etc. Our team of lawyer, lend, agent and I managed to navigate some rough waters along the way with good collaboration and communication. Karen is clearly a creative and caring person who wants to have a positive impact on her clients' lives, and I really appreciate that about her."

"knows what people want. Her sense of humor makes what could be a very stressful time , more lighthearted."
