"Karen has been an exceptional advocate for me in finding the right property, working with knowledgable lenders, understanding market conditions and landing the right price to get a deal done. With her team of professionals, the escrow was smooth and we closed on time. Her experience and vision for transforming space and helping quantify the cost to make improvement early on when evaluating the property was helpful in managing expectations and understanding the process and pricing."

"Karen has been helpful in getting my investment properties more up to date by suggesting a number of upgrades and improvements. As a result, I am getting more money/month and they rent immediately. Karen is great to work with and I am now considering the idea of selling properties that I have owned for a very long time in a 1031 exchange as a tax strategy. I am looking forward to simplifying my life one day at a time and also having a long term plan to manage my real estate and eventually pass on to my heirs."

“I met Karen at an open house and I appreciated her knowledge, delightful personality and follow through to help me clarify what I needed to do to get my house sold and move closer to family. Me and my wife had lived in our Menlo Park house for over 40 years together and I was overwhelmed after she dies with the amount of work and upkeep. Karen helped me and my son, who lived out of state, to find the right attorneys, accountants, estate team, moving professionals, housecleaners and gardeners to prepare both my home and condo for sale. Both transactions were a huge success and set new record highs in their respective areas. My son and I were not overly excited to pay the huge capital gain taxes generated by the two sales but at the end of the day we were excited to get multiple offers on both transactions and a great price. It was a smooth move and it made my son and I both feel confident that we had taken the overall best strategy. We can not thank Karen enough for her patience, guidance and understanding in helping us through the process.”
