"Karen Scott has worked on BOTH sides of the deal for us several times. Also several times for people I have referred her to. Quite simply, she is the best. I say that from the perspective of knowing pretty much every realtor in town, given I have lived in Westport my entire life have interacted directly with most of the best realtors. Karen is in a league of her own. She works TIRELESSLY on your behalf. She goes at it 24/7. She is relentless. She doesn't give up. She is an amazing presenter. She knows how to sell. perhaps most importantly, when you get close to the finish line, she is a world-class negotiator she does not lose a deal at the last minute which happens many times with other realtors. She knows how to cross the finish line in the best way possible for you. On top of all of that, everyone who walks away from a deal with her has good things to say about her, whether on the buying side or the selling side. She is as tough as it gets, but she is also extremely likeable, that is a very rare combination."

★★★★★
"Karen is a true real estate professional. I have worked with Karen for almost 15 years over that time, we have successfully transacted over $15 million residential real estate. Karen has a cogent understanding of even some of the most complex transactions. She is also extremely competent and thoroughly understands all ranges of products. She under promises and always over delivers. She is also committed to the process and has her client's best interests at heart, ensuring that they are always well represented"

★★★★★
"Karen is THE BEST. She helped sell my mother's home. Karen is very honest, amazingly knowledgeable, quite articulate, and passionate about what she does. She gave us the good news and bad news with warmth and directness. She never tried to sugarcoat things, but always worked diligently to find new ways to market a difficult-to-sell house. Karen is fun and funny. She's warm and "cool" (as in great to hang out with). I am so glad Karen was on my team."

★★★★★
"Karen is an extraordinary broker. She knows Westport inside and out and never makes you feel pressured to make a decision you're not ready for. We spent the better part of a year looking (with very specific and fairly narrow parameters) and we never felt as though we couldn't have taken twice as long and lost her attention. It's also 100% true to say that we, literally, never would have found the house we did without her. The house I'm writing this review from at this very moment was never on the market. She ran into some colleagues of hers at her office, caught wind of a house she thought could be perfect from same, and had us in there within a day or so. When our initial offer didn't get it done, she supported us without question when we held on it. Later, when we began negotiating a bit more freely locked a deal, she remained a passionate advocate on our behalf, ensuring that we got not only the best deal we could, but also were treated with respect fairness by the outgoing owners. I would recommend Karen to anyone looking for a home in Westport enjoy knowing her to this day."

★★★★★
"Ten years ago when I was working with another broker, Karen told me that she saw the perfect home for me. When it came time to sell that home, I knew Karen was the perfect broker to sell that house. Karen is the consummate professional : extremely knowledgeable about the market, insightful & adept at managing the sales preparation process, sensitive to her clients' needs, skilled at the art of negotiations, always adding excellent perspective & guidance, diligent on researching a home's history a master at managing all the details that arise up to after the closing. In addition to Karen's incredible professionalism, as a client, you gain the the assistance expertise of the great KMS team. They are simply the best town!
