"Karen has an excellent feel for the market. She answered any questions we had about all of the areas we looked at. When we were seriously interested in a property she did the research immediately to find answers to our questions. She responded right away when we wanted to put in an offer on the home we bought. I would recommend Karen first and foremost for your next real estate purchase."

"We had an amazing experience with Karen. She was very respectful and professional. She did such a great job of setting up appointments for us to look at houses. I'll contact her again whenever we are selling or buying house from now on. Also I would recommend her to anyone."

"Karen Gatta is very knowledgeable in her field. We underestimated how much we could get for our town home and because of Karen's marketing skills, we had 6 offers in under 24 hours of our home being on the market. We closed for more than we expected and the transaction went very smoothly. Karen grew up in the NW Burbs and is familiar with all of the neighborhoods. Karen had a very quick response time to all of our questions via email or phone and has very patient and kind personality to boot."

"Karen was very helpful in assisting us in locating a property that was affordable, and checked off a lot of the items on our wish list. Once an offer was made, she was there every step of the way throughout the closing. She provided us insight and knowledge that was helpful for a new homebuyers such as ourselves. I highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell your next home!"
