    Sold a singleFamily home in 2020 for approximately $325K.
    I have used Karen for all three of my home purchases and sales. There isn't anyone I would trust more than her. She is honest, caring and quick to respond to every single question, at any time of the day.

    Sold a singleFamily home in 2020 for approximately $250K.
    Karen is an experienced, responsive, and organized professional. From the beginning, she came prepared with all of the information we needed, provided clear steps for the process of selling our home, and was always there to answer questions and provide guidance along the way. Everything she touches turns to sold, she is simply excellent!

    Karen has helped with the purchase of our first home and now with our second. She is very knowledgeable, patient and went above and beyond to help our family get into each of our homes. I cannot recommend her highly enough! Thank you Karen for making looking for a home and buying one such an easy and stress free process!

    Karen was great to work with! Super helpful guiding me as a first time home buyer through the process. Always easy to communicate with, answer my questions, and provide any information I needed. Recommended a great home inspection company to use as well. I highly recommend Karen!

    Bought a singleFamily home in 2019 for approximately $275K.
    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 singleFamily 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 singleFamily home in 2018 for approximately $150K.
    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 singleFamily 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 singleFamily home in 2018 for approximately $200K.
    - 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.
