There really is not enough that I could say about Ryan!! I think Ryan Karns is an amazing Realtor and is very knowledgeable in his profession. As a single parent he managed to make this as painless and stress free as possible and was patient enough to explain everything that was happening as the process went along. He returned all my calls promptly and made me feel like i was his only client no matter how busy he truly was. He showed that he had my best interest at the at heart through the entire purchase process. Ryan is also very well connected with a network of reliable home inspectors, mortage lenders and has a crafty way of getting things done even when its not his responibility. I HIGHLY reccomend him to any seller or home buyer, (and i did, to a very happy co worker as well) . I will continue to reffer him and use him again if life so permits. <br/><br/>Thank you Ryan!!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Federal Way, WA.

Ryan took the time to take me to each house I was interested in seeing. He came up with a few lists of homes that I might be interested in and we looked at ones that I found online. He's very patient and seems to lean towards finding you the house you're interested in as opposed to hurrying up and getting as profitable a sale as possible. That's the main reason I chose Ryan based on other reviews. I noticed some agents appear to be in a rush and get annoyed when you don't buy one of the first houses you see. He also replied to each of my emails and phone calls within a day. I ended up buying a nice house with 2 garages which was something I was really hoping to get. It was a house he suggested in an email. This house has everything I need.

Bought a home in 2013 in Meredith, Algona, WA 98001.

We started looking for our very first home this year with a bit of a time constraint as we were expecting our first baby. We found Ryan online after seeing how many great reviews he had and we can see why! Seriously, from start to close he was brilliant and incredibly diligent in making sure to accommodate our every question and request to see a home. It didn't matter what time it was he was available. His knowledge of the industry and of housing in Washington state in general was flawless. We were limited by our budget in a market that has become a sellers market again but we were able to get a brand new home with his guidance in a safe, family friendly neighborhood. Ryan is not only a realtor, he becomes your friend and adheres to your needs. A great guy, a wonderful family man and an absolute pleasure to deal with!! I would HIGHLY recommend Ryan for any home purchase no matter your budget!

Sold a home in 2013 in Prairie Ridge, Bonney Lake, WA 98391.

We had a very unusual circumstance with our lender and Ryan was steadfast in his dealing with them. He navigated the process unbelievably well, and i am certain that we would not have realized the results we had with any other Realtor. He is a true professional and gets results!

We connected, but it did not work out. Looking in Lakota, Federal Way, WA 98023

Ryan is personable and professional. He responded immediately to each telephone call and then met us at the precise time of our appointment. His follow-up, knowledge of local real estate and his personal demeanor is impressive.

Ryan gave us his honest opinion, and then, although we decided not to list the home for sale, told us step by step, what to expect and then how to proceed. We appreciated his integrity and sensitivity to the situation that was at hand for our family member.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in New Tacoma, Tacoma, WA.

I will definitely work with Ryan again. He handled all of my requests promptly and very professionally. I gave him a next to impossible task and been very difficult through the process, and eventually we found something even I could not resist, and at a very good price. His local knowledge is outstanding, right away he told me the good areas to live and what to avoid. He prevented me from making mistakes by buying in areas that are not good, prices that were too high, and houses that would be hard to resell. I was tempted to buy some of those and he did not just go along with me and collected the commission. I highly respect that. It took many attempts before we arrived at something everybody has agreed on, and Ryan was very patient with me. He is very responsive, and most of the time I could just give him a call or write an email and he got back right away. Negotiation skills are excellent too, we handled a difficult foreclosure transaction with a seller that wasn't very responsive to our needs, learned about it right away and got better than published price. The only reason he gets four stars for process expertise is we did have a hiccup, mostly due to the seller's slow speed, and the closing date was delayed for a working day. Which, in the end, turned out to be a good thing because I got a refund and I was able to reschedule the move date. If it was all perfect, I would be suspicious reading the review.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $275K in Puyallup, WA.

As a first time home buyer, I was unaware of all of the intricacies of the buying process. Ryan made me feel at home and that no question was too small. He was quick to respond to my questions and provided me with everything I needed to feel comfortable in such a major purchase. We found the perfect house in a great neighborhood that I am sure I will enjoy for years to come. Thanks again Ryan for all your help and guidance!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Auburn, WA.

We cannot say enough good things about Ryan Karns and Sheila Elwell! They were extremely instrumental in getting us into the home of our dreams. We greatly appreciated their patience with us, as we were first-time home-buyers, and really had no idea what we were doing. They were always willing to answer any questions we had and were always happy to show us any homes we were interested in viewing. Sheila was especially helpful when it came to some last minute requests to view homes. She always made herself available. We would HIGHLY recommend Ryan and Sheila to ANYONE looking to buy a house.
