My husband and I began looking for our first home when our daughter was a newborn. The market was starting to pick up (July 2012) and we knew that with a modest budget, and a competitive housing market, we needed to find a home fast. I found Karen through an internet search, and was immediately drawn to her highly organized website, family friendly demeanor, and no-nonsense approach to real estate. She was helpful in explaining the terminology, rules, and process of home buying to these sleep deprived parents, and came with solid recommendations for Lenders, Home Inspectors, and Home warranty for our first year. While it took nearly 5 months to purchase our first home (which we love!), Karen was diligent and supportive the entire time. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a home in the area.
