"Karrin is a seasoned, professional, responsive, knowledgeable and all-around super star agent. I have used many agents in the past and she is among the best I have ever worked with on either side. She recently sold our home during a pandemic and utilized every marketing tool available to ensure it was done promptly and at a great price. She handled every call, every showing, every open house and was present for every step along the way. Karrin diligently followed through on every lead, is aggressive (but not annoying or off-putting) and constantly communicates with her clients. I am pleased to give her my highest recommendation."
