BOUGHT A HOME IN SOUTH MILWAUKEE 2022

“Our experience with Karen exceeded our expectations! She found us our absolute dream home and guided us in selling our current home, all during a intense real estate market. Her suggestions and expertise in what to look for in a home, how to stage a home, how to negotiate a contract and write an offer were superb. She really gives the white glove treatment- going above and beyond to be present, answer questions, provide reassurance, give a reasonable and objective opinions, and even provide emotional counseling at one point!!! lol. Buying and selling a home can be stressful, but working with Karen made it fun. I would highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell a home!

Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Milwaukee, WIMilwaukee, WI

We have known Karen since we bought our first house with her almost 10 years ago, and we just worked with her again to buy our new home in the same Bay View neighborhood. Karen is awesome – she has a ton of experience and knowledge about the houses and market in our area. We really appreciated her honest advice, and how quickly she responded to our texts or emails. She even stopped by while walking her cute pup one evening to answer a question that I had about our offer. Karen was great at helping us navigate the whole process from the showing, through our offer and counteroffer, and our successful closing. We would definitely recommend working with Karen!

Bought a home in Greenfield, WI 2021

Working with Karen has been an absolute delight from start to finish! My husband and I are first time homebuyers with an FHA loan and we sure chose quite the intense market to buy in. Despite that, we managed to find the home of our dreams in less than 2 months from when we started touring houses and we just moved in last week after an incredibly smooth contingency and closing process!

Karen was incredible at guiding us to hone in on exactly what we wanted, needed, and maybe what we didn’t need. She kept us realistic about what was affordable for us while also guiding us on what is worth investing in. I cannot express our appreciation enough for keeping our desires top of mind while simultaneously balancing out our budget and loan restrictions. Ultimately, we only ever ended up putting offers in on two houses, the first one deciding not to sell, and the second one being the winner! She is an aggressive finder and closer, and she works her magic with kindness and thoughtful consideration. I cannot stress enough how easy she made this process for us – we experienced none of the horrors of homebuying that everyone always tells you about and I firmly believe that is because of her, as well as our mortgage broker who she referred us to. She knows her stuff, just sit back and trust her to take care of it!!!

So much love and thanks for everything!!

PS – another super sweet touch : she made sure to get gorgeous photos of us for our accepted offer and closing days, and it just adds to those little details that she pays attention to! Now we will have those photos to look back on and smile 🙂

Karen Helped Us Find a New Home in 2021

My wife and I were interested in selling a house and moving into our future home.
Karen was recommended by a friend and helped us navigate this absurd housing
market (2021). She knew the neighborhoods and had several suggestions and
strategies as we worked towards finding our new home. Karen helped us land
competitive offers as a seller and located a home that is everything we were hoping
to find.

MILWAUKEE WI 2020

When I was searching to buy a duplex to owner-occupy in Bay View, Karen was the natural fit! As a landlord herself, she knew the potential pitfalls to look for and was very helpful throughout the entire purchasing process.

As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, it was important to me to work with a realtor who understood my life experiences and I’m always happy to support members of the community in their business endeavors, especially easy for Karen since she’s an amazing realtor!”

I HAVE RECOMMENDED KAREN TO MANY FRIENDS

I used Karen to buy my last two homes in Milwaukee. In both instances, she was responsive, hard-working, and did not stop until we found the best home for us with in our price range. She also recently helped my parents sell their Milwaukee home and they were very happy with the result. I have recommended Karen to many friends and every one who has used her have reported back to me that they were very happy with the experience.

Karen’s Skills and Experience are the Reason I Was Able to Win on the Home That is Just Right For Me

Deciding to buy my first house in 2022 was part of my five year plan. However, the pandemic and other forces sure didn’t make it an easy time to wander into a new home. Karen’s skills and experience are the reason I was able to win on the home that is just right for me.

Karen patiently walked me through every step, empowering me to understand the process and ultimately craft a winning offer unique the market conditions and my financial circumstances. She answered calls late into the evening and first thing in the morning. She patiently met my whole family and politely considered their opinions, too. And ultimately saw me through a deal with a unique seller.

I’m glad I didn’t give up! I haven’t moved in to my new home yet but I’m working on making it a stunner. Karen helped me see it’s potential, including the beautiful hardwood floors hiding under the carpet. Karen’s experience working and living in Bayview was the perfect fit for me.

I highly recommend her!

THIS WAS OUR FIRST TIME PURCHASING A HOME…

“We had a ton of novice questions and fundamental misunderstandings about what we actually wanted in a home (turns out a bungalow is the opposite style of what we actually need in the layout of a home).

Karen has been exceedingly responsive- she’s always available. And she’s super flexible working around our “normal business hours” schedules. She walked us through every step of the process- steps we didn’t even know existed until we got there (she was there during the inspection, at closing, and through all the back and forth with the sellers).

She’s even followed up after closing- it’s really refreshing to work with someone who is doing their job because they love the work. She is a great Realtor and an expert in the Milwaukee area.  Her Real Estate expertise helped us get the perfect home for us.

Katy and Cody W.

WE LISTED WITH KAREN BECAUSE…

“We knew that she was THE realtor in Milwaukee. After contacting her, she came over and gave us a few tips of things to do to make our house more sell-able.

We fixed those few things, then Karen came over to take pictures for our listing (she is an awesome photographer!).

Just four days after the house went on the market, and just one open house later, we had three offers, all over asking price and two were CASH offers!  

We went from listing to closing in EXACTLY three weeks!  Karen is the ultimate professional and made the whole process less daunting.  List with Karen…trust me, you will not be disappointed!”

Karen is an experienced realtor who took time to gain knowledge and history of the property. She was kind and knowledgeable while explaining the process. She has a great personality and knows the market. In addition to Karen, she has a great team and they all give regular updates and make sure the client knows what to expect next.

INTERESTED IN FIND US “OUR” HOME!

Karen was excellent throughout our whole buying process. She kept us informed and explained each step of the way! She took the stress out of the entire process of buying a home. She was easy to reach whenever I had questions about what was going on. She was very knowledgeable about the homes we walked through and seemed to know what myself and my husband was looking for. She was not trying to just sell us a home but was more interested in finding OUR home. The best part is she found one so close to our family!

KAREN UNDERSTOOD OUR DESIRE TO REMAIN PATIENT TO FIND THE RIGHT HOME…

“As first-time homebuyers in the 2020 housing market, we were glad to work with Karen. Karen understood our desire to remain patient to find the right home while balancing the need to act quickly in the real estate environment we were in.

We appreciated Karen’s work ethic, especially when we needed to schedule showings and make offers the day that houses were listed. Karen was great at facilitating conversations about features of homes we saw and helped us refine our preferences over time.

As a final testament to Karen’s expertise and client focus, she persuaded us to see a house that we initially didn’t have interest in but had features she knew were important to us. As soon as we stepped inside, we knew we had found our home!

We were guided smartly through the offer and negotiation process and are loving our new home!”

Alexander J.

I would recommend her for ANYONE looking to buy a home!!

“Karen has helped me purchase 2 homes since 2010. In a market where homes were selling in less than one hour Karen’s knowledge, commitment and connections were crucial to our success in purchasing a home. I would recommend her for anyone looking to buy a home.

I’VE WORKED WITH KAREN OVER THE PAST TWO YEARS…

“and she has the three P’s:  Passion, Professionalism, Persistence.  Karen knows her stuff and works very hard to keep her clients happy.

She is an expert REALTOR® in the Metro Milwaukee area and I highly recommend working with Karen for any of your Real Estate needs!”

KAREN WENT ABOVE-AND-BEYOND ON MULTIPLE OCCASIONS…

“Karen was honest, knowledgeable, and quick to respond throughout the entire process. There were no surprises during the entire process.

In addition, Karen went above-and-beyond on multiple occasions. We had to get a few electrical and plumbing quotes after our inspection. Karen handled everything. We didn’t even have to take off work to be there.

We had a last-minute service call at the house the day before closing. My wife and I were both an hour away. I called Karen, she was at the house in minutes, and she took care of it. We are moving into our new house In Bay View neighborhood of Milwaukee this weekend! We couldn’t be happier. She is the best real estate agent we ever worked with. Thanks, Karen!”
