"Karen is well connected and active in the local community in the Northwest suburbs. Karen is professional, yet friendly and down to earth. All the other real estate agents we received feedback from during our home selling process love her, which helps when it comes to negotiations. Combined with her solid experience as a real estate agent and her law degree background, she is well rounded and dedicated to helping her clients buy and sell homes. Our home selling process went very well with Karen and I would recommend her to anyone who needs an agent."

I highly recommend Karen. She is truly a PROFESSIONAL realtor."

"Karen's law background is a added benefit to her sales approach. I felt extremely comfortable with her knowledge and experience in selling and purchasing in Prospect Heights and Arlington Heights.
Karen is quick to respond and made herself available in very short notice. I have recommended her services and will continue to do so!"
