"Karen is a realtor like no other. She definitely goes the extra mile for her clients. I will share with you my personal experience with her. I arrived to Florida last year and was looking for a house to rent. I wanted a house in Golden Gate Estates or Presidential Estates and my budget was $5000. There were no houses on the market that I liked for rent but Karen did not stop at that. She called every house on the market for sale to see who would consider renting and eventually found me the perfect house at the price I wanted. She was professional during the entire process of visiting the house, writing up the contract and delivery of the house, always giving me the best service. She is gracious and friendly and makes the whole process easy. One year later, now I am looking to purchase a home. Karen has been extremely patient with me. She has taken me to see at least 15 houses, and we speak daily to discuss new houses that come on the market. When looking at houses, Karen has a particular talent, which is remodeling. She should have been an architect! Karen walks into a house and her mind starts racing as to how easy it would be to make changes to the house to accommodate to my needs, which she already knows so well. In her mind, she tears down walls and recreates spaces with an amazing talent and suddenly the house that did not have enough bedrooms or bathrooms, or closets, suddenly they appear in her imagination as to where and how it can be done. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a home to do this search with Karen. She is professional, punctual, efficient, and will always treat you with respect and a gracious friendly smile."-Diana Grimberg
