"Not only is Karin superbly professional, but along with her knowledge and experience she provides a unique calm milieu that is really useful during the often stressful real estate process.

★★★★★
"Karin knows the market. Karin knows what upgrades appeal to prospective buyers. Karin knows how to price your home. Karin knows how to drive traffic to your open house. And Karin knows how to sell a house at the best possible price. Our sale had more twists and turns than most, and Karin held our  hand throughout, guiding us through a process that ended better than we could have ever expected. We can't recommend her highly enough." - Joe

"15 minutes after meeting Karin I knew she "got it". She is totally professional, very knowledgeable about the real estate market and attentive during the entire selling process. More importantly, she understands and grasps the emotional and physical stress one experiences when preparing their home for sale. I don't hesitate at all to recommend her services. She totally stood out among the 4 other agents I was considering.

"Even when things go well, buying and selling a house can be an experience filled with angst. I can imagine no one better equipped that Karin to be at your side through the process. She acted as our advocate, sounding board and was tireless in her pursuit to help us get the best price both as buyers  and sellers. She is tenacious without being pushy and is a consummate professional. It's no wonder she's one of the top  producers or Sotheby's not just in Montclair but throughout New Jersey. Congrats to Karin and to us for choosing her as our realtor."

"My wife and I were in the process of selling our condo as we began house hunting in Montclair. Our sale was going through fine but, much to our chagrin, we learned the hard way how cut throat and competitive Montclair real estate can be. As the clock ticked down to our condo close we were outbid on  several homes, and our anxiety about were we were going to live, and send our son to school, grew by the week.
That’s when we thankfully met Karin Diana-Toder. She tirelessly showed us dozens of properties, expertly pointing out the pros and cons of each, while providing straightforward answers to all of our questions. And while our previous agent was rarely available after 7 PM, Karin made a dozen calls on our behalf one weekend while she was on vacation in Europe! Her expertise, professionalism, and personable personality provided comfort and confidence when we needed it most. Thanks to her hard work and efforts we bought the house of our dreams at a price that was within our budget!

"Karin is a resilient, relentless and committed agent. She helped my family and me move from Brooklyn to Montclair in late 2019. She takes the time to know you and exactly what you want- with an eye on the future rather than a quick transaction. She’s the kind of straight forward, no BS friend you’d want on your side to give you some clarity, honest feedback and look out for you and yours. She can read a house like a book but also see how it fits your family. She doesn’t sell or push but is instead invested in you and your search. Failed bids, crowded open houses, and competition don’t shake her. That confidence is contagious especially if you’re buying your first home. " - Larry
