Sold a home in 2014.

The first time Karen met with us, she spent over 90 minutes going through each room in our house with us and made respectful, thoughtful suggestions on what we could change or move around to make our house more appealing. Our previous realtor had not done that with us. So right off the bat, Karen showed us that she really valued her clients and gave us her time and attention. She also would get back to us right away if we called with questions, and she gave us feedback from the showings within hours. We highly recommend Karen to anyone looking for a house to buy or trying to sell their house. She has a wealth of knowledge and treats everyone with respect and kindness. She doesn't hide anything and is honest with what is going on in the process. She was absolutely wonderful as our realtor and we are grateful we were able to have her expertise and help.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 in Oskaloosa, IA.

We worked with Karen long-distance. It was all good. She put in a lot of time on a complicated issue - dealing with my dad's estate. She helped us out with little details, and was able to lead us through closing with no problems. She was familiar with what the market was like, and what a realistic asking price was.

Karen did an awesome job helping us find & purchase our new property. I would highly recommend her! She always promptly returned our calls. We had contacted around 12 different Realtors between Des Moines & Iowa City. Karen did a great job for us.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in New Sharon, IA.

Karen did a great job for us. She found the perfect home for us to buy, after checking out what we waned in a home. She had to work between the seller and us, to make sure all of the problems was solved. Karen helped us get a painter to get the house inspected. She even asked for an extension with he weather was so bad that we couldn't get the paint and roofing job done on time.

Thank you Joyce for your kind review. We had a lot of issues to deal with in your home purchase but in the end things fell into place. I always check out your house as I drive into New Sharon and think about how much I enjoyed working with you and Richard on the purchase of your new home. Thanks again! Karen

Bought a home in 2013.

We were extremely impressed with Karen's ability to get the job done. Karen went above and beyond all of our expectations on a lengthy and deeply involved process on buying a forclosed home. From negotiating with lenders and sellers to setting up inspections, Karen worked tirelessly and communicated with us continuously. Even when things got difficult, we wanted our house. Karen did everything she could to make sure our dream came true.

Bought a home in 2013.

Karen was excellent in helping me find a home. She is professional, knowledgeable, conscientious and a caring person. She went out of her way to show me any properties I wanted to see in a very wide area in the vicinity I wanted to locate. Karen is very friendly, a people person and works well with other agents. She kept in mind what I was looking for and called each time she found something for me to see or I could call her and she was always available to help even though she is a very busy person. It was never a problem for her to find out and answer any questions I might have about a property and get right back to me on emails or calls. She also carried through helping me with all the things I needed to know and do when I closed on a property.She provides a very helpful folder to use during the time of looking and for afterward. I am so glad she was my agent. I highly recommend her!
