"She responds quickly and always seems to have a back plan if she can't make it somewhere. She listened to what I was looking for and consistently gave me good advice. Her guidance allowed ne to purchase a home in about 6 months even though I hit a couple of bumps in the process."

"Karen from the very first meeting was very helpful and made the whole process a very positive experience.
Every single time we had a doubt or question she came up with easy solution.
We took her advise and it paid off.
I would highly recommend her to all that want their house purchase to go smooth."

"As first time home buyers, we need a lot of help! Karen exceeded our expectations, graciously walking us through each step of the process. She was so quick to reply to emails and phone calls and got us into houses we wanted to see very quickly as well. We always felt like we were being taken care of and that we were a priority. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone looking for a realtor!"

"Karen is amazing to work with and I'd highly recommend her for both your real estate and legal needs. She's the total package. She was available when we wanted to go look at homes and when we decided instead to build, she took the initiative to help identify available lots. Responsiveness is something that's really important to me and I was able to reach Karen anytime we needed something. She's earned a customer for life (though we're building our dream house, so I'm hoping not to move any time soon)..."
