Team reviews

We had the pleasure of working with Karen Smyth and her team on both the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home. We were interested in moving to Brookhaven and a friend had recommended that we give Karen a call and it was the best thing we did during the whole process. Not only was Karen a complete delight to work with (we felt like we were shopping for our house with a true friend - albeit an incredibly knowledgeable, talented and savvy friend who was incredibly responsive to all of our questions and requests), but we can't emphasize enough what a difference it made to work with someone that had such a breadth of local knowledge about the area, as well as the inherent connections and street smarts that come with being a regional specialist like Karen is. Karen is such a charismatic and sincere 'people person' that can instantly make any person feel at ease and that skill has clearly helped her to be well-liked and trusted by not only her clients but her peers in the industry. With it being such a seller's market with rather limited inventory of homes for sale, we have no doubt that the only reason we were able to purchase the home that we did is because Karen represented us and we had the benefit of her keen insight and experience. <br/><br/>Karen also did a wonderful job selling our home which was outside her typical cachment area but she was diligent and dedicated to getting the job done and we were thrilled to close on our old house only a few days after purchasing a new home. We strongly recommend Karen and her team to anyone looking for a realtor -- she is one of the top agents in Atlanta for a reason and you can be assured an extremely pleasant and professional experience if you work with her!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $575K in Chamblee, GA.

Karen was terrific. She showed us a ton of houses and was always available to address and questions or concerns that we had about the process. I would recommend that anyone considering buying a home in the Brookhaven area strongly consider using Karen.

Bought a home in 2014 in DeKalb Highlands, Doraville, GA 30360.

Karen is an amazing agent who will go above and beyond all your expectations. She is very knowledgable and fast to respond to your questions. My wife and I bought our second home together with her and will surely go with her again when the time comes.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Atlanta, GA.

Karen Smyth will go above and beyond to get you your dream home. She is upfront and honest and always is available for questions or concerns. As a first time home owner I was nervous but it couldn't have gone smoother. She truly is the best in the real estate business!

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $100K in Smyrna, GA.

Karen was top notch. She responded quickly to getting my condo listed and negotiated on my behalf with the offers received. These offers were received within 10 days of listing...can't ask for more than that.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Virginia Highland, Atlanta, GA.

We met Karen at an open house one afternoon and instantly connected with her. My husband and I had just moved to Atlanta, so we were not ready to purchase a home just yet, but Karen kept in contact with us. When we were ready to start look we knew who to contact. Karen is now our friend. We worked with Karen in the purchase of our first home and used her again to sell it, seven years later. Everything came full circle. Karen and her team are a joy to work with and make everything comfortable, effortless, and quick. We highly recommend her and her team for buying or selling your place!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $500K in Brookhaven, GA.

I highly recommend Karen and her team! I came to them after a disappointing experience with another realtor, and they went above and beyond to make sure that my experience with them was entirely different. My work schedule made it difficult to see houses during the day, but someone from the team was ALWAYS available to show me houses in the early evening/weekends. This was a huge plus in a market where houses were going under contract within 24 hours of listing. Unfortunately, we got out-bid on several houses early on, but Karen and her team were very helpful in navigating the difficult process of "final and best offers." In the end, I found an amazing house with them, and they helped me aggressively negotiate the price. The whole process in preparing for the closing went very smoothly and they also recommended a great mortgage broker. I would use them again!

Highly knowledgeable, good team player, proactive. Did a good job of preparing me for the sale and helped me locate a new place given short turnaround from sale to move.

I highly recommend Karen..can do, proactive attitude.

Bought a Single Family home in 2010 in Chamblee, GA.

My wife and I were out-of-towners wanting to buy an investment property in Atlanta. Karen was super-patient with our whirlwind schedule (we could only fly in for a couple of days at a time) and showed us a bunch of houses. When we found one we liked, she helped us negotiate the price down.

We'd definitely use her again!
