As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:
Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home
Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.
Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
"Where do I begin? My husband and I were brand new to the area and looking for a unique property (large acreage and small home). From the beginning, Karen was so knowledgeable on the area, ALWAYS available and an excellent communicator, and truly always had our best interest at heart. We had some heartbreaks and frustration along the way with several properties, but Karen encouraged us and always fought for us when it came to negotiation and making sure we were getting the best deal possible. This woman is an ALL-STAR! We are one week away from closing on our dream home- WAY under budget and I know the only reason we got there was because we chose Karen as our realtor. I know she was working with multiple clients at once- but we always felt like we were a priority and that is special. Whether you are looking for a big home on a small lot, or a small home on a big lot, or any home in the area- consider working with Karen. It is clear she truly enjoys what she does. "
-Sarah Booth, Client
"Karen marketed our condo at Mariners Village for us and was completely professional throughout our association. She did her research, was honest in her assessment of the property and stayed in touch with us every step of the way. In a tough market she was just what the doctor ordered. I have 18 years of experience as a realtor in New York and know exactly how good Karen is. We thank her for everything!"
-Susan Rosen, Client
"Karen has worked very hard for us selling our home and then again on the purchase of our home I highly recommend her. She is very professional. I would use her again Thanks Susan Poe"
-Susan Poe, Client
