Karin knows the market. Karin knows what upgrades appeal to prospective buyers. Karin knows how to price your home to drive traffic to your open house and knows how to sell a house at the best possible price. Our sale had more twists and turns than most, Karin held our hand and guided us through a process that ended better than we could have ever expected. We can’t recommend highly enough.

Nancy & Tim K. ~ Buyer & Seller

Even when things go well, buying and selling a house can be an experience filled with angst. I can imagine no one better equipped than Karin to be at your side through the process. She acted as our advocate, sounding board and was tireless in her pursuit to help us get the best price both as buyers and sellers. She is tenacious without being pushy and is a consummate professional.

Karin, thank you so much for your help with this wild and crazy process. Not only can I say that "we couldn't have done it without you”. I know it it’s possible that we wouldn't have done it without you. You have really been there as a source of sage advice, support and patient attention to detail since we started the journey of selling our home, a few years ago. Thank you for being an amazing realtor, and a great friend throughout the entire process.

Mazarakis Family ~ Buyer & Seller

Karin is truly amazing. She not only found the perfect house for us, she kept us sane as we packed up and moved in the middle of Covid. She knows the local market and was spot on in recommending the timing & pricing of the listing of our home. She made our old house look fantastic, resulting in a stunning number of offers and a selling price that we only dreamed of. She was calm, honest, pragmatic and fun throughout everything! I couldn’t recommend anyone more highly.
