Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $550K in Montclair, NJ.
I recommend Karin wholly and without reservation. She was patient, thorough, and reliable during our entire process of casually viewing homes to bidding and closing. She was integral in helping us avoid common first-time buyer pitfalls and was beyond informative in assisting with our transition from city-dwellers to suburbians.

Bought a Single Family home in 2009 for approximately $625K in Montclair, NJ.
I could just echo what is written in other reviews. We looked for a house in Montclair and Glen Ridge for eight months, and Karin took us through seven bids. We refused to bid over asking - and we were under asking several times. Karin was uncomplaining, even though she warned us that we should expect disappointment. We really made her work - and despite having our newborn and two-year-old with us ever time, she never seemed exasperated with us.

I've recommended her to friends and acquaintances many times over the last three years, and everyone has been happy and thankful. She behaves as a buyer's agent despite not being one. Also, we met her because of the wonderful listing she set up. We were impressed with her choice of photos and the presentation of the property. She can perform well on either side of the aisle.

If I had been our broker, I’m sure I would have quit and told us to get somebody else. We were so picky, and when we didn’t both just dismiss a house out of hand, it was usually just one of us who wanted it, and the other had some kind of problem with it, often intangible. On the rare occasion we agreed on a house within our range and submitted a bid, we lost, because the winning bid turned out to be out of our range. We often doubted we would ever find a place in Montclair. Fortunately, Karin Carson was our broker, and here we are, proud new owners of a house in Montclair. She stuck with us until we actually found a place that we could agree on and afford. Karin was unbelievably patient, as well as persistent, thorough, professional and, ultimately, effective. She devoted weekend after weekend to us, and never got discouraged when we turned out not to like anything from that day’s offerings. She was always eager to move on to the next set of possibilities, and her enthusiasm was infectious. At our daughter’s school on her first day, I ran into the broker from another real estate company who had been the agent for a seller whose house we had bid on. “She worked sooo hard for you,” he told me, referring to Karin’s persistent communications with him in her effort to glean any insight that might help us bid successfully, within ethical boundaries, of course. One of the admirable things about Karin was that she never, ever pressured us to bid on a house. She also never hyped a house, and never showed a trace of false enthusiasm. In fact, she sometimes surprised me at how completely objective she could be about places my wife or I had obviously liked. My wife and I often disagreed about the places we saw, and Karin skillfully and sensibly never took sides with one or the other of us. In fact, her cool-headed common sense approach to the task at hand probably helped keep our marriage from fraying during the process. Karin’s knowledge of the market, and of municipal and state housing-related requirements, was exhaustive and up to date. She also had the kind of feel for Montclair and its schools and other institutions that only a resident and someone with genuine affection for the town could possess. Beyond all that, Karin is also a lovely person who made the sometimes stressful house hunting experience infinitely more enjoyable than it would have been with someone of less compassion, humor and warmth. Having Karin as our broker gave us a built-in friend in town, and it’s no surprise that she has become a personal friend of so many of her former clients. Likewise, even after the closing on our house, Karin continued to be an invaluable guide, recommending contractors, painters and services of just about every kind. We cannot recommend Karin highly enough, as a broker, as a human being, and as a new neighbor.

Sincerely, Steve and Heidi Montclair, NJ

Karin was very helpful throughout the process. She helped us figure it out when the deal got complicated and even helped watched our two young children while we were doing the house hunt. We would definitely go with Karin again in the future and recommend that others do the same.

Sincerely, the Wilder family
