"Karen was great to work in selling our townhouse!! She started by talking with my wife and I many times in advance to first understand to our changing situation, and then by performing a detailed walking through to identify upgrades that would provide the most return but also would be within our budget, and to help sell our property more quickly. Karen carefully staged our properly to look and feel very desirable and approachable to a wide range of buyers. Then Karen hired a good photographer to come out with her directly, and we were very impressed with the photos and excellent brochure that was published for both online and paper copy. Also, Karen had a successful open house by generating interest with a wide network of real estate connections. My wife and I were very satisfied, and we would recommend her to anyone selling a home."

"Karen gets the job done! She is a true professional- honest, ethical, knowledgeable, and with you every step of the process. Her feedback for staging was so helpful, the language used in the listing was detail oriented and really captured the essence of the home and neighborhood. Her team of professional photographers provided potential buyers with a true sense of the home. She is prompt in responding to her clients, too. She pulls out all of the stops to make a listed house sell and treats the sellers with kindness and her full attention."

"Karen Gatta did a super job in helping to sell our home. From start to finish she was spot on with her recommendations to prepare our home for sale, the listing price, the photo presentation, internet listing, and recommending qualified attorneys upon our request. The result was multiple offers within 10 days at the best price and closing within 40 days of listing. We highly recommend her services."

"Karen Gatta is a very sweet knowledgeable lady that made the process of buying a house much less stressful. My husband and I are up in age and this is actually our 1st home purchase. She was great at showing us homes and because we saw so many before we found a good fit she kind of got to know what we were looking for. She would notice things as we were inspecting properties and quickly point them out, which was wonderful. If I had questions at any time she was very informative and when she wasn't available she set us up with an associate Deborah Hathoway who was equally competent and pleasant. I would highly recommend Karen Gatta if you are in the market to buy a home. You will not be disappointed. It is not always easy to find a Good Fit but both of these beautiful ladies did their best to accommodate us in any and every way they could. Happy House Hunting ??"
