"I started working with Karen in spring, and went into contract and closed on a home in Oct/Nov. She was extremely patient with my open timeline; I was in no rush and preferred to wait until exactly the right opportunity arose. She was meticulous in learning about my preferences and which aspects of a home were more or less important to me (e.g. private outdoor space, parking, square footage, natural light) and was able to prevent me from jumping into a few bad scenarios where homes were either poorly laid out or poorly maintained. She also cautioned me to not stretch my budget needlessly - an excellent call since I didn't need to find something immediately and the market was hot and fast moving. I really appreciated her expertise, perspective, and ability to help me stay relatively calm in the traditionally stressful home buying process. Karen was a great advocate for me when communicating with others (agents, lenders, insurance agents) on my behalf and also taught me to navigate that process better. She has good local contacts to other agents and lenders, which I ultimately benefitted from. She was super responsive over text and email. I would recommend her to anyone, but especially to first time buyers because she'll be really invested in helping you find the perfect home and keeping you sane in the process." - AyeshaBajwa
"Karen Ng is an amazing agent. We just bought our first home in the Woodstock Co-op community and Karen was with us every step of the way. She got us to ask and answer the really tough questions about where we wanted to live and what we were looking for in a forever home. If we had questions that she didn’t know the answer to, she researched it and got back to us immediately. She never guessed and I was greatly appreciative of her honesty. If you aren't familiar with co-op's, Karen knows how to assist with this particular home purchase. Even though we have closed and she handed us the keys, she’s still checking in on us as we’re packing and moving. I highly recommend Karen to everyone." - chinndeanna59
"Karen was and is one the most caring and compassionate individuals I know. She taught us so much and guided us though the whole process, asked us questions, found out who we are as people and what we truly were desiring in a forever home. Karen is also super smart and was always one step ahead." - rogerachandler
Bay Area is where I call home. It is an amazing place to live. Besides the beautiful weather, incredible opportunities, rich cultures, the ocean and the mountains… we also have one of the most dynamic and competitive real estate markets. You will need a knowledgeable guide to navigate this market and get the property that you want.
What I offer:
For those who are selling, relocating within the Bay or from another area, upgrading to a new home for your growing needs or selecting an investment property, you can expect the highest level of customer service from me.
As a member of Team Schuler, my clients and I benefit from a deep wealth of resource and expertise. We have many off market listings and can negotiate very effectively on your behalf because of the relationship we have with area agents.
I started my real estate career during COVID to adjust to my families’ changing needs. Before real estate, I was an estate manager for a high net worth family in Marin County and Chicago. Details related to homes, people and transactions are a second nature to me. My proactive approach will put your mind at ease during the buying and selling process.
Having lived in Marin county, Alameda and now Berkeley, with extended family in South Bay, I can provide practical evaluation on how a neighborhood will serve your lifestyle.
As a 17 years old, I immigrated to the US from Hong Kong. Then in my late twenties, I moved to Chicago for an urban experience, and then to the Bay Area to plant my root closer to family. Now more than ever, as a mother and a realtor, I understand the importance of a smooth transition for my clients.
As a single parent who have to manage the fine balance of work and family, I am empathetic to families with school age children and elderly parents. In my spare time, I enjoy working out and spending outdoor time with my twins.
