Bought a home in 2014.

Karen was very knowledgeable about the My Home Program. As a first-time home buyer, I needed someone with expertise in FHA loans and government programs. She was willing to go above and beyond to make me comfortable with the process. Her pleasant demeanor helped to ease my fears. I would definitely work with her again.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Bowie, MD.

Karen is the perfect realtor for first-time homebuyers. She is patient, responsive, accessible, and does what she says she will when she says she will. Karen takes the time to explain each step of the home buying process and the documents you are required to sign. She took me to see the same properties on multiple occasions when I was uncertain about putting in a contract. Karen also has an excellent reputation amongst fellow reputable realtors. Her professional relationship with the seller's realtor enabled me to get into my home within 3 weeks from seeing the home. I highly recommend Karen to first-time home buyers.  More Less

Bought a home in 2013.

Karen was an amazing realtor. She assisted my husband and I with everything from locating a property securing a loan from a financial institution that could close on our property in two and a half weeks.She purchased a home warranty for our new home. Our AC broke less than one month of moving in and the warranty company would not cover the repairs because it was not properly maintained and that was an unknown issue. When we talked to Karen about this, we were confused because our home inspection didn't say that our AC wasn't in disrepair. She went above and beyond by following through with both the inspector and the warranty company. We have been in our home for just over two months now and she is still there for anything we need including getting us our full refund for repairs to the AC!!! Thank you SO much Karen! Your dedication and hard work got us into our home and continues to help keep it in working order!  More Less
