Ratings & Reviews

Karen helped my fiancee and I buy our first home together in Virginia. From the moment we met her, she was a real pleasure to work with. There was no presssure at all. She was very professional and gave us excellent advice and guidance. We are so very glad we reached out to her. Some day, when we are ready to sell, without the slightest hesitation, Karen will be the first call we make. As such, I most definitely recommend Karen. I would also add, that over the few months that we looked at properties, multiple realtors that we came into contact with, had heard of, or knew Karen, and so her solid reputation will help you in the Virginia area, whether buying or selling, as other agents would prefer to work with her over many other realtors in the area. That's a reputation you want on your side!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $750K in Donaldson Run, Arlington, VA.

Karen was the most thorough and experienced agent I've worked with across multiple real estate transactions in both the DC and Boston metro areas. She was able to get us into every property in our price range before the wider market saw the house and knew right away whether a house was priced correctly or not (and therefore how fast it would move). When we finally found the house we wanted Karen was able to get us in the door and press our offer with the seller's agent to make sure we got responses before anyone else could come in and bid it away from us. I would not hesitate to recommend Karen to anyone searching for a real estate agent in Northern Virginia.

Sold a home in 2009 in Ballston-Virginia Square, Arlington, VA 22203.

I have known Karen for years and worked with her on many occasions either in purchasing or selling a home; she is absolutely top-notch! She is incredibly helpful, extremely well-versed in all real estate "ins and outs", is wonderfully personable and just an overall joy to have by your side thru the entire process. I highly recommend her; she's a consummate professional who will go the extra mile for you, has your best interests in mind and is a true delight to be around.

Sold a Condo home in 2011 for approximately $575K in Alexandria, VA.

Karen worked with us to sell our townhouse in the Overlook in Alexandria. It was a very, very positive experience. She worked with us to price the home competetively and then to make sure the home was showcased properly. She arranged for more photographs than we ever expected and was proactive about getting all this onto the her website and on the MLS.

It all must have worked exceptionally well. We sold our house in 10 days after three offers. The best offer was 2,000 under the listing price. She worked with us after the contract all the way up to closing, providing advice and guidance as we worked with the Title Company to come to closing.

I highly recommend Karen. There was no presssure here, just very professional and sound advice and guidance.
