"Karin, We can’t thank you enough for all of the help you have given us over the last couple of months. When LS was first connected with you, I remember him saying, “Karin is the right agent. She will be great to work with if we decide to move.” You certainly did not disappoint. We said countless times that you were so patient and we never felt rushed. You went above and beyond to get us into the properties you thought we would like, whether it was a ‘zoom’ call or last-minute in-person appointment. You are very professional, kind, and hard-working. Thank you for helping us find a “Southern” style house that we can make our new home. Thank you as well for all the guidance you provided along with house contacts and contractors. We also can’t thank you enough for all the goodies for the kids. You certainly did not need to spoil us, but it made a very welcoming arrival to FL!"

"Karin Gillette was exactly what I needed when I decided to list my home. She gave me some great decluttering tips and painting recommendations. We also decided to stage the house, which she handled from start to finish, in the end, was money well spent. She had beautiful pictures and a video taken for the listing, and my house sold very quickly (multiple offers), in spite of the global pandemic. Through the process, Karin kept me informed on all the necessary details and was extremely responsive. She made the process super easy, as she is knowledgeable and straightforward with her clients. I highly recommend Karin for all of your real estate needs."

"Karin was a pleasure to work with on my new home purchase. This is my second transaction with Karin, and she did not disappoint. At every step of the buying phase, Karin was on top of every detail and made sure all parties involved followed a strict timeline to coordinate a timely closing. She works very diligently to get the best outcomes for her clients, and it shows. Thank you so much, Karin, for your expertise, kindness, and professionalism. It was a pleasure working with you again!"

"Working with Karin was not only a pleasure but she made the whole process of selling one home and buying another seamless. Karin knows Fort Lauderdale inside and out. She is detail oriented and takes care of things you never even thought about! Karin not only sold our house quickly but she helped us find the new perfect home! We have worked with many realtors over the years and Karin is by far the BEST! Always going the extra mile, always detailed oriented, always thoughtful, and always there for you. Thank you Karin!"

"My wife and I were new to Florida and did not have the knowledge of the Fort Lauderdale area. After deciding to find a location in Fort Lauderdale to build and retire, we met Karin Gillette. We had never met and had only spoken briefly over the phone. On our initial visit she was extremely accommodating. Without asking, she took the initiative and toured us all around Fort Lauderdale, showing us all the hot spots and entertainment areas along with the different residential communities. After spending the day with Karin we had a great understanding of the city. We were able to locate and place an offer in 3 days. Through her professionalism and easy going personality we were able to navigate and close on escrow on the house after a difficult negotiation. She made the entire process very comfortable and much less stressful. Also us being out of town, Karin, without being asked, was very generous and helpful in volunteering her time to make sure the house was secure in advance of hurricane Dorian. We recognize that she went well out of her way to be a good person and very helpful to others. We are grateful to have Karin Gillette as our real estate professional!" - Dennis and Judy

"Karin helped us find the right home, under difficult circumstances. We had just sold our home in Canada as part of a work relocation and needed to find a home in South Florida. We had some health issues arise during this process and Karin was incredibly patient and diligent in finding us the right homes to visit and ultimately the right one to purchase. Karin is very professional and a good listener. She never pushed us, which was refreshing and appreciated! She worked hard on our behalf and we would strongly recommend her as an agent!."

"Karin, we can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us. Your help was invaluable to us during our relocation move and we could not have made our way through the process without you! It was such a pleasure working with you and we can’t wait to get settled and explore all the area has to offer."

"Karin is a consummate professional. She is incredibly reliable and a great resource. I purchased an investment property with her five years ago. She did the market research and the investment has been extremely successful. She found me tenants within a month and they are entering their fifth year as tenants. I could not be happier with her work. I will be using her again in the future without question."
