Karen Borden represented us in both the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new construction home. Karen has a tremendous amount of experience and we felt like we were in great hands. Karen's responsiveness can't be matched. We would definitely recommend her to any friend who needs a real estate agent. If Karen could help us get into our dream home, she could help you too!

My husband and I recently had the very positive experience of working with Karen Borden. Relocating to the area from Iowa, it was extremely helpful to have someone like Karen guiding and assisting us. She was willing to share her knowledge of the area, complete with tips and advice. We were grateful for her insights and took her words to heart. We recently bought a house with her assistance and couldn't be happier. It is our hope that Karen will remain our friend in the coming years.

Selling a home is an extremely stressful experience. Karen made it so much easier. From her infectious enthusiasm to personal demeanor to professional guidance, she was invaluable. She provided realistic guidance and it was very clear she was not willing to accept any offer that came our way. During the closing process, she was able to provide objective perspective regarding items of concern and recommendations that resulted in swift resolution for rapid sale. In addition, we conducted our sale from out of state with little inconvenience. We recommend Karen without hesitation or reservation.

Karen aggressively follows up on leads until she receives a response from the agents that have shown the property, whether positive or negative. Residing out of town when the contract was actually signed, she was instrumental in organizing and completing various tasks including scheduling contractors to repair items discovered during the inspection. As the primary point of contact for our closing, she kept everyone involved on track to complete the closing flawlessly and on the original date and time. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone in the Huntsville area wishing to have their property handled professionally and promptly.

When looking for an experienced and dedicated realtor, look no further than Karen. From putting our home on the market to closing, she was always there to address any questions or concerns we had come up. She made the whole process smooth and relatively stress free. I would recommend her highly for any buying or selling needs. Thank you Karen for getting our home sold & for keeping up with us after to!

I decided to purchase my first home about six months ago. I started asking around for recommendations for realtors and was referred to Karen. I have never looked back. She is truly amazing! Since I was a first time home buyer, it was a bit overwhelming with the amount of information being shown to me. Karen simplified this information greatly and walked me through the process step by step. She knows all of the ins-and-outs to the home buying process and is very thorough. I would definitely use her again.

Karen recently helped us find our first home. I wanted to write a review because we used reviews to find an agent when we started our search. Karen did a fantastic job. She was easy to get ahold of and flexible working around our schedule. She was patient with our pickiness and never pressured us about any of the homes we saw. She gave us great advice about locations and prices. She's knowledgeable about the market and well established in the industry. She was able to recommend other great professionals for everything from the inspection to the mortgage. On top of it all she was a joy to work with! I've already recommended her to friends and will definitely be calling her first if we are looking for real estate in the future.
Karen made the entire process of selling our home so easy for us. She advertised on the internet and locally. She handled all negotiations. We were able to sign documents through email. It was so convenient!! She even attended the closing in our place. The absolute best part was our home sold in 3 days at full asking price!! Thanks to Karen!!

We got in touch with Karen after numerous colleagues from my work had recommended her. She was extremely responsive throughout the process and provided straightforward, useful feedback that helped us decide on everything from pricing to staging. We were able to sell our place for a decent price in a slow market after only two months, which was great. We'd absolutely use Karen again if we find ourselves in the Huntsville market
