Bought a home in 2014.

Karen is a pleasure to work with! We had such a wonderful experience purchasing our first home with her that there was no question who we would turn to for the purchase of our second! She is extremely knowledgable and well versed in her trade but she takes the time to explain the process in a way that the average person will understand. She is easy to talk to with a very like able personality, makes herself available and makes her clients feel that they are a priority by responding promptly and going the extra mile. Some important qualities that we appreciated were her effective communication skills, her professionalism in written and verbal form, her willingness to accommodate our hectic schedules, giving her honest opinion when we asked for it, and being more concerned with our benefit than her own. She also has very thoughtful little ways of expressing her gratitude for your business and/or making your first time home buying experience extra special (but I won't ruin the surprise with specific details!). Overall Karen is very professional with just the right amount of congeniality that makes her more than just your agent but a trusted ally in this crazy real estate world!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Santa Rosa, CA.

Karen is amazing. She helped me sell my home before losing it to foreclosure. She is a brilliant agent and delt with some very difficult situations with great professionalism and confidence. She has a thorough knowledge of the real estate market as well as extensive lending and financial knowledge. Karen also has a great eye and told me exactly how to stage for the best possible results. She truly had my best interests as a priority and helped me through a very stressful situation. When I purchase my next home I wouldn't think of using anyone else!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $400K in Santa Rosa, CA.

Karen is awesome! She worked very hard and non-stop on a difficult sale recently. The property was a short sale and had several other issues along the way. In my case she really went to bat for me with the lenders, making sure that the sale would be approved. She had so many details to attend to and each was dealt with immediately and even in advance at times. Her knowledge of the entire process was extensive and quite impressive. She went above and beyond in her commitment to the sale, never failing to keep in touch with me at each step of the process. She has a wonderful cheerful attitude and can handle any problems or issues that arise very tactfully and professionally. I would not hesitate to recommend her she is the best in my book.

Bought a home in 2009.

Karen Maxwell is the quintessential agent working for you. She gives 100% effort in all phases of the Real Estate market. We looked for a home for many, many months, submitting numerous offers before Karen found the one we decided on. She worked tirelessly searching for homes to meet our criteria, never giving up.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $600K in Sebastopol, CA.

Karen worked quite hard to negotiate the best selling price for our home and helped of find a home in Windsor. She is always prompt and makes herself accessible. I would recommend Karen to any buyer and seller.

Sold a home in 2013.

She was tireless in her work to assist us with our short sale. She came well recommended and lived up to those recommendations. I have no hesitation recommending her.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Forestville, CA.

I have known Karen for four years. Initially, we met when she helped my husband and I purchase our first duplex. Karen was very knowledgeable, helpful, explained things thoroughly and always had a smile on her face. She made the whole experience positive and we learned a lot from her. I have recommended Karen to others; she is a true professional.

A few years later, Karen also helped my Father sell his home of 40+ years, and at the same time was able to help him buy a mobile home. Of course, my Father of 80+ years was hesitant and nervous. Karen was able to calm his nerves by being so positive and reassuring. She answered all his questions thoroughly and at times had to explain things two or three times. My Father would not hesitate recommending Karen to others.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $300K in Forestville, CA.

I don't lie when I give 5 stars commendment. My fiance' and I had gone thru several brokers over a year of looking for a new home to purchase and none of them really understood what we were looking for. When we finally found our dream home, Karen very carefully explained how the process will begin and what she will require of us. She kept in contact with us every day and processed our documents within 24 hours if not immeditaly. She made the agonizing process seem easy and breezy. When we came to a hick-up in the middle of the loan process, she worked every angle to push our docs through for approval. Negotiation worked wonders. Karen is is an amazing person and broker. I have recommended her and will continue to recommend her to friends in the future. Thank you Karen!

Sold a home in 2013.

Karen is the bomb! she put us at ease with the whole process step by step, she explained how everything worked, what to expect, and guided us though it all. Karens knowledge of area's was priceless, she knew exactly the right price to list for, without under-bidding it to get the most interest going, and with-in a week we were offered $30,000.00 over are asking price. Karens knowledge of the financial end helped to guide us into a solid escrow, which in turn made this sale go fast and easy. Karen is a no nonsense negotiator that will stand toe to toe against any of the big guys and go the extra mile for her clients, I honestly don't know how she does it all, but she does well! If your looking for a realtor, you need to call Karen Maxwell. Rick and Wendy Singelmann.

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $175K in Santa Rosa, CA.

Simply thee BEST!!!! I will never work with or recommend another agent. She is honest, hard working, kind and truly a God send to the industry. I worked with Karen in 2008 when the housing market crashed and rules and regulations were changing almost daily. It seemed as if each day we woke up to a new challenge, BUT everyday we persevered, hung in there and in the end my children and I were blessed with a beautiful home and a beautiful life long friend... :) I can't say it enough, she truly IS THEE B E S T !
