"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, thank you so much for your time in helping me narrow down the search for my next home! You rock! XOXO" -
"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." -
"Karin helped us purchase our home in Rio Vista and she was great! She is very detailed oriented, knowledgeable, and responsive. She knows the area very well and can be a huge asset to anyone buying or selling a home. Highly recommend!" -
"Thank you so much Karin for taking me around town to look at houses - plus all the great advice you gave me!! You are the best and I appreciate the time I spent with you." -
"We had a wonderful experience with Karin throughout the entire process of searching for, and eventually purchasing out home. She was extremely professional and very knowledgeable about specific areas and neighborhoods we were interested in. Karin went above and beyond, always willing to help in any way. We wouldn’t hesitate to call on Karin in the future and highly recommend her services!" -
