Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $250K in Big Bear City, CA.
My husband and I would like to thank Karen for assisting us in purchasing our vacation home in Big Bear. We have never experienced working with such a quality realtor as Karen. Her professionalism and knowledge as a realtor in the Big Bear area was something we could not have imagined. She listened to our needs and worked diligently daily searching for that special home.

Her response time was extraordinary. No matter what time of the day or night it was, she always seemed to get back to us within minutes to answer any questions we had. Her recommendations were greatly appreciated and it wasn't long before we were making an offer on our new home. She worked hard to get us the price we wanted and within weeks were able to take possession just before Memorial weekend.

Karen and her team provided us with everything we needed to move smoothly through escrow and become a Big Bear resident. Her assistance with contact numbers for setting up the utilities, purchasing homeowner's insurance and referring quality repair companies far exceeded our expectations. We never dreamed we would get this type of service from a stranger.

Not only did I gain a vacation home,. I gained a "FRIEND." I would highly recommend Karen to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. Good Work Karen!

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 in Big Bear City, CA.
Karen is the most dedicated realtor we have ever done business with. We purchased a home November 2013. Karen's knowledge of the mountain and neighborhoods made this a very easy process. She not only made the escrow process easy, she went beyond what any normal realtor does. We wanted to put in a jacuzzi bath tub. Because we were out of the area she got all the estimates for all the workers needed and had the project started the second escrow closed. She provided us with a list of utilities and things you need to know to winterized your. After our move she provided a list of local vendors. Her staff is just as knowledgable and helpful as Karen. We feel so fortunate to have found Karen to help us with this new adventure.

Thank you so much for the kind words. My team and I strive to provide extraordinary service. I am committed to go the extra mile to provide truly great service. Our clients are usually not local and the extra support can mean so much. Client feedback like this is the absolute best way to know we have achieved our goals. It is Truly Appreciated!

Bought a home in 2013.
Karen Lavrouhin and her entire team at Boulder Bay Real Estate are just awesome!! They always make time for you, and are very professional and knowledgable (not just about Real Estate, but about Big Bear in general.) I have used Karen to purchase a home, sell that home, and purchase another home in Big Bear. On my recent purchase in November of 2014, Karen and team made the entire purchase process easy and worry free, and kept it on track so we closed on time. Once I moved in, any questions about where to go or who to use for any service, I just call Karen. If you are condisering buying in the Big Bear area, I highly recommend working with Karen.

Sold a home in 2013.
My husband and I would highly recommend Karen and her team. They helped us sell our home in the High Desert and our cabin in Big Bear City and also find a permanent home in Erwin Lake. Karen and her team went above and beyond working with us through some snags and bumps and with their help we found a beautiful home in a quiet beautiful treed area and we are beyond pleased. Karen is very professional and knows her business, yet she is very tuned into your needs and wants

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Sugarloaf, CA.
Absolutely the best we could've done for ourselves. Karen was absolutely phenomenal. Nothing like our prior experiences with real estate agents who call themselves professionals, Karen truly is a professional. From the moment we walked into her office to meet for the first time she was prepared with listings and had created a custom binder for us. She was attentive to our likes and dislikes and got to know our tastes quickly. We found a place that we loved and she went to work for us immediately. She handled so many things for us that just were not possible for us being that it was going to be our second home and we did not live that close. She made us feel at ease with the entire process and we did not feel any stress whatsoever. I must say that because we knew we had the best agent we could've asked for, we felt no doubts that she was doing the best for us. Everyone can appreciate that feeling I'm sure. We closed escrow late February and have been enjoying our Big Bear getaway ever since. Absolutely recommend Karen to all who are interested in having the best experience in buying (I'm sure she's a great selling agent as well).

Bought a home in 2013.
Karen Lavrouhin is simply the best real estate agent I've ever dealt with ... and I've worked with quite a few. I found the perfect home with her help. My budget was on the low side of the market (under $150k), but she made me feel as if I were buying a million-dollar house. She and her staff (thanks, Sara!) are amazingly patient. She has a thorough knowledge of the Big Bear area real estate market, and gave me wonderful advice and guidance. I now consider her a good friend. She was referred to me by another friend whom she'd helped, and I've thanked my friend for recommending her. If you're buying in the Big Bear-Fawnskin area (and you really should consider this area - real estate prices are embarrassingly low, and it's beautiful year-round), go to Karen at Boulder Bay Real Estate.

Bought a home in 2011.
Thank you so much for showing us homes and answering our questions 2 years prior to our purchase. By far you are the best realtor we have ever done business with “on the hill” and “off the hill”. You are a no nonsense professional in your field. Quite Refreshing! You say what you mean and mean what you say and you get the job done! Your gift of firewood kept our hearth and hearts warm through our first winter and we thank you for your thoughtfulness.

If anyone is looking for a realtor in Big Bear, yours is the only name we will offer.

Not only did we meet the greatest realtor we also gained some wonderful new friends.

Respectfully and with Lots of Love, Jeff, Renee and Sasha

Bought a Single Family home in 2008 for approximately $400K in Big Bear Lake, CA.
We searched for a home in Big Bear for nearly two years before finding the ONE. Karen was there for us through and through. She showed us properties that met our criteria, listened to our comments on each one and got to know us and our likes and dislikes. Karen is so knowledgeable not only about Big Bear and the surrounding area but also about homes, design, property values, etc. Her wealth of knowledge and experience made our home buying experience wonderful.

Karen is professional, kind, generous and smart. All the things you want in a realtor and a friend. Not only would we recommend Karen, we have! And our friends have been equally impressed.

I say Karen is the best of the best and that everyone should employ her services. But Karen, in her typically humble and professional way often speaks highly of her competition. There are no doubt other qualified realtors in Big Bear, but Karen is tops!

Have known Karen and family for over 5 years. Met on a walk with our dog Sasha. We came and enjoyed their Little Lake View Lodge after that time for 4 more years. We wanted to move to Big Bear then and we knew it wouldnt be for a while. Karen gave us all the info. we asked for and things we needed to know also. Karen helped my wife Renee and I find our Dream Home . She was there for us to look or to just ask questions at any time, with out pressure. We have seen what what service Karen will give you on Selling your home or Buying Your Dream home. Nobody I have seen does it better.To stage a house she has a house full of things to stage your house, even if its empty. Karen will go out or her way to sell or help you find your Dream house. We are great friends now, and have seen what they will do to sell or help you stage to sell. Ask Karen how to contact us, and I will be glad to share with you our experence. Jeff, Renee, and Sasha Draper.

Sold a home in 2009.
I challenge you to find a better full service representative for your property. We have bought and sold two property's thru Karen and have had excellent representation. Her marketing skills and knowledge of the Big Bear market are unsurpassed. Karen is responsive to your needs - we needed help moving a few items of furniture into our new cabin thinking she would know of a few locals that we could hire for help - she,Tim and Noodles showed up on moving day to help us. Who else does that?
