Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in North Miami, FL.
Karen was recommended by our friends whom she helped to find and purchase a house. We were looking for our first home to buy and she walked us through the whole process from the very beginning till the end explaining every little detail and answering numerous questions. She is a true professional, knowledgeable about the business, understanding of her customers and very approachable. She worked with our budget and schedule. Karen helped us find our dream home. We are recommending her to all our friends and coworkers. Thank you very much Karen!

Showed home in 2014 in Bayshore, Miami Beach, FL 33140.
Karen is a true professional and has your best interest at heart. She is extremely responsive and provides feedback immediately. Karen treated us with respect and care, as if we were her family. Karen listened to our needs to present properties that were relevant to us. She did not show us options that were out of our budget and I appreciate that. Karen offered ideas, creative solutions and an expert team of mortgage brokers and title agents to help make the sale happen. I would confidently recommend her to anyone.

Found a tenant for a Single Family home in Miami Shores, FL.
Karen is an excellent realtor. We listed our home for rental with Karen, after having it listed with a different realtor who ate up 3 months of our time, and Karen rented it on the 1st showing. Yes, the FIRST showing, less than 12 hours on MLS. She's personable, professional and very accommodating to her client's needs. Thank you, Karen, for finding us such an amazing renter in record breaking time!!

Helped me rent a home.
I really liked working with Karen. 1. She replies very fast. 2. She gives you a variety of choice to decide 3. Though she specializes in Mid Muami Beach (North Miami), she showed me everything that was on the market everywhere else (sunny isles, bal harbour, etc), but pricing/interior made me choose Akoya and afterwards I bought an apartment in that bulding. Karen is offering good choices, that you'll never regret!

Bought a home in 2013.
I highly recommend Karen S. Alvarez. Karen’s professional expertise extends beyond Zillow’s categories. We live in another state and Karen showed us several apartments until we found a wonderful condo. Karen has extensive knowledge of Miami and the surrounding areas.

Her paperwork was timely and flawless. She had a great rapport with our loan specialist and made herself available for the inspections when we were unable to be there.

Putting all this together makes Karen a true professional. We couldn’t have found anyone better to find our home.

Thank you for your review Keith. I am so happy to now have you and Mitty in Miami. Through the process we have created a wonderful connection. I enjoyed working with you both. You both understood the challenges of this Miami market and ended up making an amazing purchase. Thank you also in trusting in me as your Realtor, basically buying sight unseen and using my eyes as yours.

Bought a home in 2013.
I highly recommend Karen S. Alvarez. In addition to the above skills, Karen worked with us until we found an apartment we loved. We live out of town and she made herself available for us to look at numerous condos per day. Karen’s knowledge of the Miami area and her tenacity are insurmountable. Karen is a true professional with a cheerful, energetic personality. It is clear to see that Karen loves her job. It was a pleasure working with her.

Thank you for taking time out of your day for the review. You found me on Zillow and read my reviews and called me. I enjoyed working with you and your lovely Husband. It was not always an easy task being the market and appraisal conditions today.. But as you know I never give up on my amazing clients and you never gave up on me. It really is team work. Plus a wonderful Mortgage broker and Title attorney. Thank you kindly.

Bought a home in 2013.
Our home buying experinece was a little bumpy, due to the fact that we had a verry low down payment, almost no money for closing and were buying in a time where there is not much to chose from. I was happy we chose Karen because we now have a beautiful home and we could not done it withouth her. We had to fight a appreisal and actualy won it and we got the house for a great price. Thank you Karen for all the hard work!
