    Bought a Single Family home in 2019 for approximately $275K in Okemos, MI.
    Karen was incredibly helpful throughout the entire home buying process and went out of our way to make sure we understood everything and felt comfortable with our decisions. Her communication was truly exceptional, especially since we were long-distance buyers.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $125K in Greencroft Park, Lansing, MI.
    We met Karen when another realtor we had contacted was about to take some vacation time. So we really didn't know much about her, but she turned about to be an excellent fit for us. As first-time home-buyers, she answered our questions, worked with our schedules, and helped us to know what to look for when seeing homes. Would highly recommend!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $150K in Laingsburg, MI.
    We had an extremely positive experience with Karen. She sold out house in Laingsburg (after 2 days of viewing we had an accepted offer and backup) and she helped us with buying a house in Dewitt. She was extremely responsive, honest, professional, and knowledgeable. We couldn't have asked for a better realtor!

    Sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $125K in Groesbeck, Lansing, MI.
    Karen was great. She followed through on every step of the selling process. She has lots of experience and a ton of contacts to help get the house set to sell. We sold the house in less than a week....will recommend her to everyone.

    Sold a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $200K in Dewitt, MI.
    - First, we don't give bad reviews, but this can't be overlooked. Maybe it will help others and/or help Karen remember what's important.. like the clients! Karen was hired by an irate sibling to help sell a home that was an inheritance property on acreage in a strong market and area. To us, she took an easy deal and made ALOT of money for the little / no work she did ON BOTH SIDES of the transaction (she had power to negotiate). We had no choice or input (due to irate sibling), which is not her fault. However, she unfortunately, did not agree to find other buyers to get the top price (nor explain anything to us), plus had the aid of 2 attorneys (we had to pay), nor agree to take a lesser commission as the broker on both sides for the little work done; Afterall, the tenants were buying the property! We even gave her needed info and made sure she got it timely w/her few responses or help i.e. title. She could've been more explanatory even with attorneys in the background. We feel she could've done much more to help us honor our parents home with the inheritance left for their family that one sibling already had made selfish choices on. We truly support good realtors who want to serve their clients best interests and should be paid for such. However, from our perspective it was business for top dollar without even a "thank you" for the $$$ she received! To us, the deal mattered more then the people. I'd never hire her or refer her.
    ***After the 2017 appraisal that we ordered, we got $40k more because the MARKET shifted this year. Not due to her work.
    Response from Karen on 8/15/2018
    Dear irate sibling, I am so sorry you feel this way, this was a complex transaction and I believe you received the highest and best deal on this property, as it sold for over $40,000 above the appraisal you had done before I listed it.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2018 for approximately $200K in Groesbeck, Lansing, MI.
    Karen was great to work with, very professional, and such a go-getter. She is knowledgeable about the Lansing area and home buying. She gave great advice to us as first time home buyers. We had a large search area and hadn't narrowed down all of our wants/needs, but she was very patient and flexible with scheduling. We highly recommend!

    Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $275K in Dewitt, MI.
    Working with Karen was the best decision that my husband and I made when moving to Lansing. She was always helpful and accommodating. On our first day in town, she drove us around for hours looking at homes and telling us all about the hot spots. When touring homes she was honest which made her trustworthy. We felt comfortable around her from the very start. She never made me feel like I was bothering her and answered my calls and texts right away. She truly seems more like a friend than a realtor! Karen went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and to walk us through the process. We are first time home buyers so we had tons of questions, concerns, and confused moments. Karen helped us to fill in all the gaps. My husband and I had a great time working with Karen and will miss her. If you are considering who your realtor should be you should choose Karen because she is the best realtor around.

    Bought a Single Family home in 2017 for approximately $175K in Bath, MI.
    Karen was professional, personable, and highly responsive to my needs. She knew what I was looking for in a tough sellers market and was proactive and aggressive in finding the perfect fit for my daughter and me. I began looking at homes before I was in a real position to buy but Karen took the time to show me the properties I was interested in viewing regardless. She cares about her clients, she's knowledgeable, and has excellent communication and follow through!
    Response from Karen on 10/18/2017
    Thank you Jennifer! I appreciate your kind words and it was a pleasure to work with you and your daughter!

    Karen was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. She is extremely knowledgable and really delivered on every aspect throughout the process. My favorite is she's really the perfect balance of personable but extremely professional. She very competent at what she does and speedy fast on responding any questions you may have. Would use her again to sell/buy a house in a heartbeat. Thank you Karen for all your help!
