"Karen is a true professional. We worked with Karen in both selling our condo and purchasing our new home. Karen's level of attentiveness really made us feel like we were her only client, which I know was far from the case as she was representing pretty much every house on the market in our neighborhood. She came in, did an assessment of our condo, and told us exactly what we needed to do to get it ready to sell. We followed her directions and had an offer in 3 days! This was our first time selling a home and while we were a bit nervous as the process can be cumbersome, she was so reassuring and guided us through every step making sure we were prepared. She worked with the Buyer's agent to make sure protocol was followed such as the inspection and appraisal, and kept everyone on a timeline to make sure we were able to close on time, which we did. She made the whole process so easy for us and we couldn't have been happier.

Now that we had sold our place, it was time to start looking to buy. We are so impressed with Karen's knowledge of the real estate market in Chicago as well as her knowledge of home construction and interior systems, such as water, heating/cooling, etc. It was so helpful to have her point out things that could be problematic in the future when we did our walk throughs as we definitely would have missed them and could have ended up making a costly mistake if we had purchased the home. Karen helped us narrow down our search and really hone in on not just what we thought we wanted, but what we really needed in a home for our growing family. After a month or so of searching, we found our perfect home. Karen helped us negotiate a good, fair price and made sure that every inch of the home was reviewed and inspected so we wouldn't have any surprises. The process moved quickly and again Karen guided us through every step so we felt very confident in our purchase. We are so thankful to have found Karen and highly recommend her!!"

"Karen really knows her business. She gives great advice and speaks from a deep base of knowledge and with integrity. She's a great agent for both buyers and sellers."

"Karen is the consummate Real Estate professional. Completely dedicated to her clients, unwavering in her commitment, steadfastly ethical and unflinchingly honest. She and her team are a singular pleasure to work with. Karen has represented me personally and my firm in dozens of transactions over the last decade in multi-million dollar deals as both seller's and buyer's agent. I wholeheartedly and unconditionally recommend her."

"Karen went above and beyond assisting us in the sale of our home. Our home sold sooner than planned and she helped find us a rental in the city during our search for a new home in the North suburbs. She had no problem making several trips from downtown Chicago to show us several properties in the suburbs. Thanks to her, our transition and closing went smoothly. Couldn't be happier with her. We highly recommend her as a realtor as she holds a wealth of knowledge in the housing market. Thanks Karen!"

"Karen was professional, and extremely knowledgeable on all fronts. She not only helped me sell my current condo which I loved (I needed to be out of a walk up and into an elevator building.), but helped me find and purchase another one that I loved every bit as much. Karen would not let me buy anything til I found something I loved. She went above and beyond her duties as a realtor to help me find my perfect place!! She is " hands down" the realtor to use whether selling or buying! Karen definitely has her hand on the pulse of Chicago real estate."

"While Karen was not my agent for the purchase of my house, she represented the seller, I can clearly say she was very instrumental in making my comfortable with my decision to buy. When it came to sell, she was the only agent I talked with. The entire process was flawless. The next time I look to buy, I will only consider Karen. She is outstanding."

"Karen was our real estate agent when my husband and I moved from Hinsdale into the city. Karen was very knowledgeable of the different neighborhoods, not to mention many of the buildings in the city. She was courteous, patient, we looked at many co-ops and condos, some several times. She helped with the right questions, and was honest with her assessment of their responses. At times, she discouraged us from buildings she knew were problematic. We selected a beautiful condo in the Gold Coast and she negotiated a very fair deal for us."
