Ratings & Reviews

Karen helped us sell our home quickly at the worst time of year! We learned of a job transfer just after prospective family buyers were settled in for the school year. We really thought we'd be stuck paying our mortgage from afar until the next spring buying season. Karen had great advice for us, helped us price our home correctly, and secured a buyer and closing date by the end of the year. Karen stayed on top of paperwork, repair requirements, and various scheduling issues to make sure the house closed on time and everything went smoothly. We were very pleased with her services!

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $250K in Fitchburg, MA.

My wife and I were referred to Karen by our listing agent (also a Re/Max agent) from our previous house. I was being relocated by my company from out-of-state to Massachusetts. My wife had purchased our old home before we were married and I had never bought a house before. Although we did have some experience owning a home I would say we were far from seasoned veterans in owning or buying a home.

With being transferred we had one week to find a home and start the buying process. Not being familiar with the area Karen was great in recommending favorable towns/cities and directing us away from areas that didn’t fit our lifestyle. She also took the time to educate us on what to look for in buying a home, things you can change and the things you cannot. During the week Karen showed my wife and I approximately 12 homes.

At the end of the week, when we had found our home-to-be Karen sat down with us and thoroughly explained the home buying process and worked with us on drafting our first offer. During negotiations Karen went back-and-forth many times helping us to get a fair price. Following the offer Karen provided contacts for the home inspection, a closing attorney and a mortgage lender, who got us a better rate than through our bank. Since each of the parties knew each other so they were able to work together helping to facilitate paperwork.

My wife and I truly feel that Karen had our best interest at heart. Buying a home and moving nearly 1000 miles can be very stressful, Karen and her “team” made the process as smooth as possible and very enjoyable. I would highly recommend Karen for anyone moving (or listing) whether it’s local or half-way across the country.

Being “semi” first-time home buyers I am glad we were referred to Karen. It may sound clichéd but my wife and I are living in our dream home and we couldn’t have done it without Karen. Thank you

Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $375K in Tyngsboro, MA.

I would highly recommend Karen Earnest to anyone interested in Selling or Buying a house. I used her for both selling my house in Tyngsboro, MA and purchasing a house in Townsend, MA. Karen was very patient and understanding with my situation at the time. She always responded quickly to answer any questions, e-mails or calls I made to her. Karen was very knowledgeable and priced my house appropriately in today's market, my house sold in 5 days because it was desirable and priced accordingly. Karen also helped me find a house to buy in my time line of my buyers so I could move in as soon as I moved out. She had great recommendations for Home Inspectors and anyone else I used. I give Karen 5 Stars!  More Less
