Clients are saying:
"Karen is one of those rare agents who does not pressure your purchase. When we were relocating from Arizona to Chicago, we were very picky about the home we were looking for, but we were also on a sensitive time frame. In one weekend Karen showed us 19 houses and I never detected frustration. In the years since we relocated, Karen has always been available for ANY real estate questions I had. Karen is not just a one time resource, but your real estate resources for years to come."
"Karen is fantastic. Her help was of paramount importance during the whole process. I cannot say enough to thank her for all support. She is a great professional and I highly recommend Karen and @properties"
"Karen provided outstanding services throughout the sales experience with @Properties. She fulfilled every expectation expressed by the firm, and Karen delivered services far exceeding her role as sales representative which concluded in a sale within 10 days of listing. I would not hesitate a second to recommend Karen White to anyone who has property to sell."
"Karen White went above and beyond too work with me and make sure my house sold in a timely manner. It exceeded my expectations, I had a contract in one week from listing date. I can't thank her enough! Thanks again Karen. .sincerely Jeff Buttera"
"We were so lucky to find Karen. She was approachable, flexible, responsive, and sweet! She made the buying process a breeze. We were able to close on a Fannie Mae home in less than a month from offer acceptance! It can be a tricky process, but she handled everything for us quickly and professionally. We hopefully will never need to move again, but if we need to buy/sell again, we'll reach out to Karen again in a heartbeat!"
