Client Testimonials

"I have bought and sold many homes all over the country. Karen in Kona was masterful, courteous and on point at all times. I highly recommend her services." - Dianna

★★★★★
"My wife and I were new to the Big Island real estate market . . .we certainly hit the jackpot when Karen Ferrara reached out to us . . . about the property we now own. From the very first conversation, we could sense just how warm and genuine of a person she was. Throughout the entire process, even during the most stressful of times, Karen remained warm, personable, enthusiastic and extremely responsive. She took the time to help us thoroughly consider our options so that we were confident with our choice. She struck the perfect balance of listening to our needs, staying within budget and not being afraid of telling us when we our expectations were unrealistic. Along the way, Karen put us into touch with top-notch professionals who efficiently facilitated the purchasing process. The fact that we were able to close from abroad in 60 days during the pandemic is truly a testament to Karen’s capabilities and connections. Karen has also put us into touch with some of our new rs and even helped us find tenants for our property. Working with Karen feels like collaborating with an extremely resourceful friend on an exciting new project. We hold Karen in the highest regards and can’t wait to celebrate with and thank her in person when we’re finally able to travel to Big Island. We now consider Karen not only a professional contact but also a friend. We enthusiastically recommend Karen!" - Vinodh

"Karen helped me find a great condo in Kona that I closed on in Jan 2015. She's knowledgeable, responsive, and efficient and did a great job for me. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for property on the big island." - Daniel

★★★★★
"Karen was referred to me by a very close friend (also realtor) in California. From the moment we met there was a connection and trust established. Immediately there was alot of activity with qualified buyers. The house sold for the asking price (approximately $500K cash) and had another buyer in line should it fail to close escrow on time. It is a very unique 2400 sqft house in Kailua-Kona. She was extremely sensitive to my personal connection with the house. Four generations of my immediate family had lived in the home over the last 30 plus years. So many memories for me to part with. The buyers agent was very aggressive with negotiations. Karen handled it all professionally with class. I can not recommend her higher than to say I would use her again without a moments hesitation. As an added bonus, i have made a true friend in the process." - Kathaleen

★★★★★
"We were given Karen's contact information prior to our House Hunting in January. We met with her the day after we arrived. She had planned out a very good selection of homes for us to look at. She stayed pretty much in our price range and we found a beautiful home. Karen was great to work with and have already referred her to friends." - Mark
