My family had an elder member move into assisted living facility and was forced to sell his Eureka Valley home of 40 years to pay for expenses. Karen was faced with a challenging situation as the home also had a long term protected tenant living in an unwarranted in-law. Most buyers were not willing to take on the tenant so the home had to be priced perfectly and also marketed to right buyer. Karen could not have been more knowledgeable of the minefields we faced and how to negotiate our way through them. She was able to sell the home to the right buyer who was willing to take on the tenant and she also got a sales price 20% more than asking. I could not be more impressed with her service and results.
Karen was a pleasure to work with when buying our first San Francisco Home. We found her by luck online and could not believe how great of a fit she was for us and our personalities. We had a difficult transaction because it was a short sale, and she would anticipate problems before they would occur and have a solution ready to go. She was on the ball, great at keeping us informed, and we really felt like she was our personal advocate. I would definitely use Karen again for our next purchase and I will be giving her number to all my friends who are looking to buy a place.
Karen is an amazing agent: she's a straightforward, no nonsense personality who will bend over backwards to help her clients find what they're looking for. She knows the City inside and out and went out of her way to help my husband and I navigate the current real estate market to find a home we're thrilled to be living in. She's very good at interacting with sellers' agents to find out important details about different properties - we felt like we had as much information as we possibly could about any property we considered, and that gave us much more confidence as we considered putting in offers. I definitely plan to work with her again in the future. Can't recommend her enough to anyone seeking an agent in SF. - Lorraine
The sale of my San Francisco property was going to be challenging and I needed someone who could think out of the box and really dedicate some effort to it, especially since I was planning to be out of the country during much of the time the property was listed. Let me say again, there was nothing easy about the sale of my property.
Karen's persistence, creativity, availability, intensity and ability to work well with her team of realtors led us to a sale that was unlikely. She juggled my own requirements and preconceptions as well as the real estate community's to produce a sale of a challenging property with a challenging buyer in a challenging time for real estate in general.
I chose Karen because she comes from competitive business background and has a strong grasp of San Francisco real estate market.
I'm happy to give Karen my highest recommendation for her work in the sale of my property and am happy to give it to you individually too. - Devin K.
Karen was my real estate agent during my first home purchase and walked me through the entire process step-by-step. Karen managed to make the process go as smoothly as possible. She was creative in her solutions and never pushy, always putting my interests first. She was trustworthy and made good referrals for home inspectors, etc., and was highly knowledgeable across multiple areas. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone looking to buy a home.
Karen helped my wife and I purchase our home. She tirelessly worked with us for eight solid months before we found our home. She spent so much time with us that it is very possible she had a better window into our marriage than anybody else we know! Her feedback and advice was invaluable and we couldn't be happier with where we landed. Beyond the work in helping us get our home, Karen has continued to help us. Whether it is an update on existing market conditions or finding a reliable contractor, Karen never fails to provide assistance. I couldn't recommend her highly enough.
