My experience with Karen was nothing short of excellent. She is very knowledgeable of all areas in Chicago and the greater Chicago area and was a great asset in helping me find the right place to fit my needs. She was very easy to work with and she was a great asset to have for a first-time home buyer. She is extremely patient and I never felt pressured at all to settle on a place. After about 10 property visits, it was clear she really began to understand what I was looking for and helped identify properties to look at that would not be a waste of time. She consistently would inform me of things to look out for, be careful of, or to consider which I would have never have thought of on my own. Out of all these things, the one thing I appreciated the most about Karen was her honesty. She was always available to work around my schedule and always had my interest in mind. At one point, we had entered into contract with a home. I began to have some reservations and Karen helped navigate me through the process without ever making me feel uncomfortable in any way. Afterwards, I found a new place that was more suited for me needs and I was so thankful that I did not get the other place. Then, during the negotiation phase, she helped me to get a price that was less than I had anticipated with more incentives than I could have asked for.I recommended her to a friend of mine and we both agree that she is one of the best to work with. If you're looking for someone who is knowledgeable, great to work with, smart, and very honest, then I would highly recommend Karen!
