"Karen is extremely knowledgeable about the area and the possibilities for the property we purchased. She continues to be involved in the process as we rehab this house into an updated home.

She was also able to negotiate a lower price and credits quickly so that our time from first look to closing was 3 weeks.

Thanks Karen!"

"Karen made the whole process from listing to closing simple and easy. Best of all our condo sold much quicker than anticipated. Thanks so much."



"Karen was terrific as was Amy Harris. I am buying another property with Karen as my broker."



"Our experience with Karen Pence has been exceptional! She is not only a rock star realtor, she has great knowledge in decor and knows what will and will not sell a home...from the color of the exterior siding, curb appeal all the way to the interior walls paint color she knows her stuff! The photography she uses is second to none! Our house sold in less than 12 hours!!! Look no further! Karen Pence with @properties should be your #1 choice! She is truly delightful to work with. We look forward to a continued long lasting business relationship."



"The Karen Pence Property Group has been an important part of my business. Their attention to detail and extensive knowledge of the industry have proved to make each of our deals proceed through closing(s) without a glitch. If a member of the team is unavailable when I need them, the others are there to cover and help in any way they can. They are a truly dedicated team and their synergy is unsurpassed."



"Karen knows the neighborhoods extremely well, sees the market trends and is very thorough. She has a great eye for detail. I would definitely work with Karen again.

These are just three of the properties she's sold for us:
2754 Hampden Ct. Units 2106, 1603 and 1208 in Chicago"



"Karen is a very knowledgeable and energetic agent who is not only good as what she does, but she is passionate about her work and clients. Karen assisted in every facet of our townhouse sale ranging from coordinating repairs/remodels to property marketing/showing to sale negotiation/closure. I highly recommend Karen to anyone looking to sell or buy a home in the Chicago area."



"We have worked with Karen a few times now. Once when we purchased our condo and once when we sold it, four years later. When Karen suggested the listing price for the sale I was surprised she thought we could get it but went with her expertise. We settled just under the listing price and got much more than I anticipated when we set out to sell. She and her team did a great job marketing the property and I would highly recommend her and the @Properties team."

"Karen is the best. Another positive experience. Karen helped us purchase our first property in Chicago 8 years ago and was instrumental in pricing and selling that property in less than than 24 hours. She also searched tirelessly for our most recent purchase in Evanston. We are more than pleased with the outcome and look forward to her expertise when we are ready to sell/purchase in the future."

"Once again Karen knocked it out of the park for us. Not only did she help us find our first home 4 years ago, but then turned around and helped us sell it! I sure wish she was licensed in Michigan (where we relocated) because I am sure going to miss having her as our guiding light."



"Karen Pence is a miracle worker. We had 4 offers within 24 hours and she managed to push up the closing date 2 weeks. I would highly recommend her for any real estate transaction."



"As always, Karen comes to closing fully prepared to facilitate a seamless transaction."



""We didn't have a typical home sale and it was certainly a new experience for us. If it hadn't been for Karen Pence guiding us throughout the process, we would have probably been lost and full of anxiety every single day until closing. Karen was not only a consummate professional, but she had genuine sympathy and empathy for our particular situation. We always felt confident that Karen, and any associate she recommended, would manage our affairs beyond expectations. We are so grateful that Karen was our real estate agent and delighted to call her our friend.""


"Being first time home buyers, we were looking for someone to guide us. Karen truly met our expectations. She went above and beyond her "realtor" role and explained pretty much every step in detail to us. Additionally, we found it very helpful that she was able to recommend reliable financial brokers, lawyers, and inspectors. Karen is responsive, pleasant, trustworthy, and knowledgeable. Not to mention, she makes killer holiday cookies! We definitely plan to recommend her realtor services to others. We are glad @Properties paired us with such a great person."


"To me, the true value of a real estate professional is access she provides to insights and knowledge that can only come from hard won experience in a complex industry. But it's how the realtor puts that expertise to work on behalf of the client that distinguishes her in a crowded field. Karen Pence is just such an agent. Her remarkable work ethic and perseverance together with a keen sense of the market provided us a clear competitive advantage as we sought, then negotiated for, a property that perfectly fit our criteria and needs. That was no easy task and it took a realtor with Karen's patience, skill, and enthusiasm to do it. When it comes to navigating the turbulent waters of today's housing market you want Karen Pence to be your captain. There is no one better"


"Karen and I worked together for a year and a half finding the right place for me in a difficult market. I know I was a very demanding buyer and she handled my numerous questions and requests very patiently and intelligently. I would definitely recommend Karen to anyone who wants an agent that will work hard to find what you want and not just get you to settle for a place."


""Karen made our purchase and transition to Chicago smoother then we could haveimagined. The support and compassion as we acclimated to an unfamiliar city wasamazing."



"Karen provided invaluable service support and assistance in all phases of the property sale, including property assessment, repairs, and sale negotiations. Karen provided timely status communications and frank advice. To top it off, Karen is also an energetic and fun person to deal with. I highly recommend Karen to anyone seeking broker representation for housing sale or purchase."



"Karen Pence is excellent all around, you are blessed to have her at your company!"



"Karen was extremely helpful and patient with us in our search for the perfect condo. It was a pleasure working with her."



"Karen has gone above and beyond what is expected of an agent with this and other properties we have purchased with her as our agent."



"Karen is the best. I have utilized her services mainly on a professional level and she has been always accurate and on the spot when it comes to assessment/marketing of your real estate. I recently utilized her services to sell my condo and her assessment of what I would receive for it was dead on in addition to procuring a sale contract within 30 days of my condo going on the market."



"I'm in the business of purchasing homes. Karen Pence is one of the best real estate professionals with whom I've ever worked. Her dedication and support through the entire process is 2nd to none. When it comes time to recommend a real estate expert, I will recommend Karen every time.T.B., Campbell, CA"



"Karen is a top-tier professional. Like others, Karen knows how to talk the talk. What's different about Karen and what made us so deliriously happy was how expertly she walked the walk. Karen was intrepid and courageous in her advocacy and I can say without hesitation that we could not have done it without her. We are forever grateful."



"Karen was incredible. She knew exactly what we wanted and respected our priorities and limitations. Of all of the condos we looked at, our favorites (and the one we ultimately purchased) were ones that she found, ones that if we had just been looking at internet websites we never would have found. She had helped up find an attorney, contractors for painting and repairs and answered every one of our questions with a smile. We will be giving her a call when we are ready for our next big move."



"Outstanding service! Would not hesitate to use Karen again and/or recommend her to my friends."



"Karen Pence was professional and prompt doing business with this transaction. I will use her on the next property that i buy and sell. Thanks Karen!!!"



"KP is too fabulous for words!"
