Ratings & Reviews

The purchase of our second home was flawless, quick and easy. Karen was very helpful through out the process. I would use Karen again if the need arises. I would recommend Karen to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Palm Springs area.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $450K in Palm Springs, CA.

Karen is what every realtor should strive to be. She does not push you into something that you aren't ready. As a matter of fact, Karen maintained our relationship for nearly 3 years before I was ready to buy. She sent me listings even though I wasn't ready to purchase. And when I was ready, she took me to all kinds of homes, listening to what I liked and what I didn't. Her vast knowledge of Palm Springs was very helpful. She pointed things out on homes that I didn't see. She truly cared about me as a person, not just a commission. Because of her dedication and my excellent experience, I have since referred her my mother and she purchased a home as well. If you want a realtor who will listen to you, care about you as a person, and really work as an advocate for your best interests, Karen Stearns is the one you contact.  More Less

Bought a home in 2015 in Carefree Mobile Village, Palm Springs, CA 92262.

We were referred to her by our son (whom she sold a home to recently). We only had a few hours on a Saturday before we were due to leave town. Karen made time for us and within the couple hours she was able to understand what we wanted and showed us the perfect home. We bought it on the spot. She's such a caring and professional person. During our 30+ day escrow she walked us through the process (hadn't bought a home for over 31 years) and make the cumbersome process a delight.  More Less
