"Karen was extremely helpful with helping my husband and I buy our first home. She was very patient with us and very honest. She was always willing to answer our questions (which we had a lot being first time home buyers) I would highly recommend her and couldn't imagine selling our buying another home without her help." - Michael and Kendra
"I've bought and many homes my past. But, Karen was absolutely the best Agent I have ever had that helped me purchase a home! Karen found out my wants needs helped me locate a home. The process can be very time consuming. But, with Karen's knowledge of the area what I was looking for.... We looked at ONE HOME she was the piece of the puzzle the negotiations that got the deal done. Thank you Karen all the best the future!!!!" - Paul
"I highly recommend KAREN ANDERSON! If you want sell a home...call KAREN! She our house over one weekend!!! Karen listed our house on Friday...had one open house on that Sunday...we received "the offer" from our house buyers early Monday morning!!! We ended up financially getting more than we realistically thought we would get. Her gentle manner efficient negotiation skills made this deal a reality for us! Karen was so easy to work with. She is very personable I was shocked at how quickly she responded to our texts calls. I know that that can be very frustrating when you are waiting to hear from a agent. She made sure that both my husband and I were informed of the facts and various steps during the house sale process even though we were separated at the time. We felt so fortunate that Karen was so experienced and knowledgeable. She alerted us several times when we needed to contact our lawyer with specific questions... and we would not have known to ask those questions of the lawyer, had she not prompted us. Karen was on top of each step of the entire home sale process. Now that I have found such a fabulous agent, I will look to partner with her again on any of my future real estate business!!!"
"I met Karen at an open house. I hadn't really started working with a realtor at that point because no one had gotten to me. Karen was ready to help always available if I had any questions. She really made first time home buying fun painless. Even when I walked away from a house after home inspection didn't turn out well, Karen was ready to take me to a litany of other houses. She was very flexible worked around my schedule so that I never had to take off work. She truly gets to know her clients wants to make their dreams, reality. She knew where I wanted to be, remembered my deal breakers helped me visualize a house turn into my home. I would recommend Karen to everyone!"
"After a few "let downs" from past realtors, Karen was the only one that made our dream come true. She works with you from beginning until the very end. She's extremely knowledgeable, professional, understanding and 100% ready to get her clients what they are looking for. She goes above and beyond what is expected of a realtor. She really goes that extra mile. We are now happy first time homeowners!" - Keila
Prior to moving to Illinois, our family was relocated throughout Canada and the United States at least a dozen times. Through this process I became a great researcher of neighborhoods. Most of the homes we have owned went through a remodeling process, of which I took a “hands on” approach.
Prior to my real estate career, I worked in the start-up tech industry. There, I honed my skills in marketing, branding and negotiating.
