"Karen always makes the home buying experience a pleasant one, whether you're buying or selling. She's always willing to help in any way she can, and is very responsive whenever I have questions, which is many!
I appreciate Karen's ability to think outside of the box and come up with unique ways to handle a negotiation, situation, etc. She definitely helps make what can be a stressful situation more of an enjoyable one."

"Karen and her team were really helpful from beginning to end. She gave us her honest view and advice which helped us taking informative decision. Would definitely work with her again if we are buying new house or selling our another house!"

"Very knowledgeable of real estate markets and current values. I have used her services on both the buying and selling side of transactions and both negotiations and closings went smoothly. Super fast to get back to me with any questions or concerns. Felt like I got the best deal possible both selling and buying homes.
Will recommend her to all my friends and family."

"My husband and I used Karen for three separate transactions in a two month period of time. One transaction was particularly difficult as it was a condo in the city that had been combined with another unit, creating the need for a new plat of survey, tax ID etc. As a lawyer, Karen was able to help us navigate all the bureaucracy and necessary filings. She sold our condo, rented another condo we owned and found us the new home of our dreams - three transactions I didn't think possible in such a short period of time. She was extremely responsive, honest and pragmatic."

"Karen's guidance and expertise allowed us to get top dollar for our parent's home. In particular, her recommendation of a stager made all the difference. The home was spacious and on a large lot, but needed a lot of work. We were at a loss as to how to even begin. Her stager made some recommendations for fixes that were inexpensive and easy for my husband and I to complete by ourselves. Those easy projects combined with eye-popping furniture staging made the house shine. Karen is a shrewd negotiator and really knows her business."
