"I wish I could give Karen 25 stars, but 5 is the limit on this site. My girlfriend and I had been browsing through listings in the neighborhood knowing that our lease was going to be up in less than a year. [...] I had very little info to offer her about when we'd be ready. While some agents may have heard this and dismissed us as not being serious or a solid opportunity, Karen followed up with us diligently EVERY TIME a unit became available. She remembered exactly what we were looking for and wound up showing us a total of 4 gorgeous apartments over the course of about 4 months. She made sure to always touch base with us. It was never aggressive or pushy, but always extremely helpful and informative. We wound up closing on the fourth apartment she showed us, an AMAZING space that checked every single box on our list. It is literally PERFECT for us. Not only was Karen extremely diligent in providing us info on upcoming openings, she was always so wonderfully pleasant, friendly and honest. If you're in any line of business you know the importance of trust, and I had immediate confidence that Karen was someone I could put my trust in during this process. [...] Her response time was lightning fast, and her ability to answer all of my questions made me confident in her expertise. If there was ever a question she couldn't answer, she did what she had to do to get the answers for us! Karen is a fair negotiator, and I am completely happy with the deal we ultimately agreed on. If there was any wiggle room she could find or extra to throw into the deal, believe me, she found it! She didn't disappear once the deal was done either. She guided us throughout the entire process from start to finish. She chatted on the phone with us (even if we needed her late at night) to walk us through the application process, help us with documents, and to ensure everything went as smoothly as possible (and it did!). I could go on and on about Karen to be honest. She breaks the mold in what it means to be a real estate agent in New York City and is just a down to earth, great human being. I felt that she was less of a salesperson, and more of a trusted consultant for us. Finding your new home in NYC can be a very difficult experience (trust me, I know)...but Karen made this easy and enjoyable. If you're in the market, call her... you won't regret it!!!" - Danny

"Karen was extremely helpful and knowledgeable to guide my fiance and me, as we found and purchased our dream apartment in NYC! As first time homeowners, she always made herself available at any hour of the day to answer our questions and was always there to walk us through every step of the process. She helped make sure we had a seamless and smooth transition through our closing. We highly recommend Karen for her friendliness, enthusiasm, and professionalism!" - Jamie T

★★★★★
"Karen was incredibly helpful with the house hunting process. She had a good understanding of what I was asking for in my search and was up-to-date on listings as my we narrowed down and adjusted my preferences. As a first time home-buyer, she talked me through the necessary processes and paperwork of co-op purchasing and had contacts at the ready for mortgaging, attorney, move-in, insurance, and cleaning. She also went out of her way to help submit the application package to the building's co-op board when the necessary mortgage forms were received late." - Ritvak S.

★★★★★
"Karen is the nicest real estate agent I ever dealt with. She is thorough and very responsive. She immediately answered every question I had, even the silly ones. If she didn't know the answer to my question she quickly found out and got back to me. I recommend her highly to anyone looking for a kind and knowledgeable real estate agent." - Michael

"Very knowledgeable, personable and smart. We did many real estate transactions in the past. Karen DeMeco was the best realtor we ever had. she listed the property, was always available to show it,Guided the other realtor, and communicated with the layer. We live in a different state and would not be able to sell the condo without her help." - Varda
