Usually I do not take the time to write reviews, unless I feel that the person providing the service deserves a recommendation. Unfortunately, this was not the case with Mrs. Karen Choate. Not only she showed up 35 minutes late to show my husband and I the condo we were interested in buying, but she was really pushy about us signing the papers to hire her as our realtor. Days later she got in contact with my husband to verify if we were still interested in the property. My husband proceeded to tell her that we had decided not to buy the condo. This was when Mrs. Choate proved the most to be an unprofessional realtor. She wrote to him that she felt very sorry that we were getting a divorce or that I had died in an accident and that explained why we would not buy the condo. Her lack of good taste really leaves a lot to desire. I will not be recommending Mrs. Karen Choate as a realtor to anyone I know and I will be sure I tell this story to everyone willing to listen because there is definitely something wrong with that woman. Luckily, there are plenty of other realtors here in Austin and we are in the process of purchasing our first home.
