Bought a home in 2013.
We are first time home buyers and when we decided to start looking around, we didn't know where to start, or who we could trust, or just how much information and knowledge is necessary to smoothly navigate this process.

We came across Karen Anderson when we wanted to see a specific house in San Pedro we had seen online, and she was the only agent to respond to our email, and quickly.

She knew more details about her area than other agents we had talked to before, clearly and carefully listened to what we wanted / needed, and was thoughtful and honest about her feedback to us. She never tried to pressure us into anything, and let us know what the pitfalls were at every step.

After putting up with us for several months and taking her time to answer any questions we had, she helped us find a place we wanted to put an offer on.

Being first time home buyers, we were cautious and uncertain about every step of the process from financing to getting inspections to negotiating offers.

She introduced us to a finance company that was able to get us a better rate, locked in, than our bank, credit agencies and any independent sources we found.

This is only the first of many invaluable connections she was able to provide us with during this process.

We specifically requested a mold inspector, and the person she recommended gave us a discount as well as excellent service.

The home inspector was extremely efficient and thorough, and after living in our new home for the past 6 months, his inspection and the repairs and all the other detail, all managed by Karen, have worked out perfectly.

Our friends in other states said they had to have an Attorney look over their documents. In California, the Agent can do this part, but what that means is that your agent needs to be as knowledgeable about the law, and rules and regulations as a lawyer.

Karen has that knowledge and the patience to make sure her clients understand the absolute details and spent the hours it took to make us comfortable.

We strongly recommend her because of how encompassing her knowledge, connections, and understanding of all the aspects so important related to home buying (the area, the process, financing, bidding, repairs and negotiating) and the fact that she's patient and not interested in pushing a client into a decision.

If we ever sell, we'll go back to her for help on that as well.

All-in-all, she helped us through the largest purchase commitment either of us have ever made, and earned our respect and loyalty in her grace under our millions of questions at all times of the day and night, and is a person I'd recommend to friends and family with ABSOLUTE confidence.

Sold a home in 2012.
This probably sounds dramatic, but Karen saved me. I was facing financial ruin and I felt completely paralyzed. I didn’t know what to do with my underwater mortgage. I was in an adjustable rate mortgage that I could not refinance because I owed $150,000 more than my home was worth. I had tried multiple times to work with the bank to refinance and to modify loan to no success. My husband and I had grown out of our townhouse as our child had grown. We were miserable. Waking up every morning was a struggle. I hated coming home to my place. Tension ran so high in my house. My husband, my daughter and I were all unhappy. We felt totally trapped. Then came Karen. Picking up the phone was the hardest thing. She came over that day. She was so supportive and gave me hope for the first time. She made me feel like I wasn’t alone. She helped us through the process of a short sell. With her partner, she sold our home in less than 30 days. She worked tirelessly with the bank and was able to work through what I thought was an impossible situation. She even was able to get tax liens removed. Now, we have moved to a much larger rental space. I can start rebuilding my credit. She helped me through such a difficult process in such a professional manner. She knows her stuff. She knows the market, the players, real estate inside and out. She is an expert. I plan to use Karen for the rest of my life! And, I would recommend her to everyone I know.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Wilmington, San Pedro, CA.
Karen is an outstanding real estate agent-5 star all the way! I was impressed with her professionalism, demeanor, and enthusiasm at our very first meeting. She has the patience, tact, and diplomacy that were essential to a successful sale of a home in a family trust. She surely deserves a medal! I highly recommend her!

Bought a home in 2010.
She sold me a duplex in San Pedro and we had to have relations for over a year. She put up with a LOT OF MY BS as a 1st time home buyer but never gave up. She was always available any time of day. She went above and beyond her "call of duty" in almost an unnatural way, but that is the good in her. Even after the fact, she helped me with the process of my tenants at no charge. Is still here for me no matter what I call her for. She knows her stuff and I highly recommend her.
