What do Clients Say?

Karen worked with us to find the right home. With her help we found a great place and were able to negotiate below asking price and close within a short period of time, since she sold our house in one week and 5% over our asking price. She kept us informed every step of the way. We had bid on and had accepted offers for two other houses, with Karen's help. Both of those houses we backed out of due to the other owner and their realtor not disclosing issues that we found unacceptable. We were very picky about what we were looking for and there weren't many houses on the market, that met our criteria. When we started looking, we had several towns that we wanted to look in. Karen was very patient during the 7 months we worked with her and it paid off. Karen never pushed us toward one house or another, she advised us on the houses we liked and provided good information for us to make informed decisions.We had worked with another realtor many years ago who became inpatient with our desire to explore many houses and after many months did not make a purchase. We found Karen to be invaluable to our house hunt and purchase.

We had the pleasure of working with Karen for the sale of our Lynnfield home, as well as the purchase of a new construction home in Reading. Karen is professional, knowledgeable in regards to both the local market and market conditions, and was able to negotiate fair deals on both sides. I would highly recommend considering Karen for any level of real estate services.I would also be glad to speak with anybody directly regarding our experience.

My husband and I worked with Karen two years ago when we purchased our first house. Being first time homebuyers we were both overwhelmed by the process and nervous about making such a large financial investment. We were looking for an agent who we could trust to help guide us through the process. Thankfully we found Karen, who came highly recommended to us by several of my husband's coworkers. We were in the market for a house at the beginning of the spring and given the price point we were interested in, houses were coming and going from the market within a few days. While it was at times stressful, I was amazed at Karen's dedication, responsiveness and willingness to meet with us and get us into properties as they came on the market. When we finally found what would one day be our house, Karen advised us through the bidding process (the same day the house went on the market!) and worked with the seller's agent to negotiate a sale that won us the house (there were multiple bidders!). As part of our offer, we had a long closing period and Karen keep in close contact with us throughout the duration and even connected us with home inspectors and mortgage brokers along the way. She was incredibly supportive and helpful - we couldn't thank her enough!Overall, Karen was a pleasure to work with and a wonderful buyer's agent. From the first time we met with her I remember feeling more at ease and confident with the process. She is truly knowledgeable about real estate and gives sound, objective advice. We still keep in contact with Karen and give her regular updates on the house. We would recommend her services to any of our family and friends and will absolutely be giving Karen a call when we decide to sell our home and buy another.
