Karl was a great asset through the buying process. As my wife and I decided if and when we were going to list our house, he was able to maintain a steady, unemotional view of the process, market, and timing of the listing to make sure we could maximize the value we could obtain out of our home. From the beginning, we maintained an up front and open discussion with Karl so he was aware of our wants and needs and could balance those in trade offs throughout the buying process.
Secondarily, Karl also volunteered his time to provide consultative reviews of other real estate contracts we were considering and raise potential warnings and errors that need deeper consideration for us. This assistance was offered despite the fact that he was not involved in closure of those deals at all.
