“Karen is a true professional. She’s worked in the Bay Area real estate market for many years (especially San Francisco), and the knowledge and connections she’s accumulated always works to her clients’ advantage. She helps her clients navigate through the most competitive circumstances, and she gives honest, unbiased advice, which allows her clients to accurately set their expectations, which I found very valuable. She’s extremely kind and genuine, and lots of fun to work with. I can’t recommend her enough.”

“Karen sold our house….and … later helped us buy our current home…She is truly a person with integrity and her honest approach to her work is what makes her a successful agent, as well as human being! We trust her completely to recommend close friends to her. She has a unique blend of holding on to her own authority/knowledge while never foregoing her client’s needs…”
