"Amazing!!! We would have not gotten our last house without her. Great to deal with, great negotiator and a great person to have on your side. Kara is more than our realtor, she is a friend."

"My first impression of Kara is how flexible and easy to work with she is. Our schedules are constantly changing and she was flexible and understanding when it came to showings and made sure we were still able to see homes when she was unavailable. Once we were able to get showings she was clearly very knowledgeable of not just the market, but homes and property in general. She pays attention to the details and points out things I would not have caught. She made a point to understand what was important to us and found homes for us that fit our needs. When it came to making an offer she was incredibly helpful explaining how it worked and how to make a competitive offer, which ultimately got us the home we wanted. I would work with her again in a heartbeat and have already been recommending Kara to others.

With this being our first purchase it was great to have someone that is so on top of every aspect, very professional, easy to get a hold of, flexible, extremely knowledgeable, explains how the process works clearly so we knew what to expect, and just all around easy and great to work with. Kara got to know us and what are needs were, helped us find and get exactly what we were looking for, and made the purchasing process easy even in a crazy market.

"She was always responsive and had a broad knowledge base to find the right home. Worked quickly and was able to accommodate my own personal needs. She was professional and worked to ensure that I had the best first time homebuyer experience possible" - Alexander

"Helpful, friendly and otherwise awesome. She helped me sell a home back in 2013. From listing to close it was smooth. Also helped me find a home in 2019 and it couldn’t have gone better. I always recommend Kara whenever someone I know needs an agent." - Jayson

"We not only used Kara Jess to purchase our home but since we were so happy with her work ethic and professionalism we also reached out to her to sell that home a few years later. She went above and beyond as a selling agent just as she did as our buying agent. Always awesome to work with !!"
