"I worked with multiple agents. But non of them was like Karen. She was persistent.she never became tired. I put my house for sale with another agent from very famous agency but she couldn't sell my house and I know now why!! But with Karen I had multiple offer, then I wanted to rent my house again I had multiple offer too. I have to tell you agency is important but agent is more important.karen is also from very famous agency but also my previous agents were too but because of Karen I had multiple offer . I can not explain how much she was better than other agents.you will see after you try this agent." - Jennifer
"Karen Harberg and Perry MacAdams (Karen's assistant) is my "go to" team for residential real estate. They are professional, communicative, and so knowledgeable about the Houston real estate market. Karen and Perry come totally prepared to the first meeting. And they listen to what you have to say.
As the process continues, they are available to answer all questions. Karen helps you through the entire process: feedback, property comps, negotiations, through closing.
If you want to sell your house as quickly as possible for the highest price, I suggest hiring Karen Harberg. And you get her amazing assistant - two for the price of one!" - Abbe

more questions to her answer and gave me a full picture of what I asked. She is knowledgeable and was concerned about all my
