"Kara is such a professional! Experienced, honest, kind, a great negotiator and really passionate about what she does. She helped us so much with buying our new home in Berkeley - we absolutely loved this house but thought it was out of reach. Kara was always available, gave great advice on market conditions, strategy and financial matters. She knew when to step back and when to push forward... and understood exactly what we were looking for from the start. She is very knowledgeable and guided us through all the closing paperwork and made some great recommendations. Such a great experience - we will always be so grateful to Kara." - Claire

"We interviewed lots of agents before choosing Kara to represent us in a tough market. We are very picky with what and who we do business with and Kara came through with patience and diligence to find us our perfect home. Then her skills on negotiating and follow through and being able to compete with multi other offers to get us our dream home - well I really can't say enough about her. We HIGHLY recommend Kara for any buyer or seller. There are lots of choices out there, she's the obvious choice." - Adrienne

"We were referred to Kara by our landlord while we were still renting in SF. We decided to work with Kara after interviewing several agents. Kara was amazing from the get go. She was very sensitive to our needs and also very flexible with her appointments. She is very thorough with her due diligence when it comes to evaluating a prospective real estate property. It was a joy to visit protective homes (sometimes along with her lovely kids) and understand the nuances of real estate purchase. If you are looking for a true partner who would help you cross the finish line as your search for your "home sweet home", my wife and I can vouch for Kara who is just awesome and the BEST. Thanks Kara for everything and helping us find our lovely home." - Brooklyn

"I had the great pleasure of recently working with Kara for the purchase of my first home. She is very knowledgeable, patient with all my questions and resourceful. She has a great sense of what is going on in the current market and being able to give options and suggestions. This was very helpful for me. Highly recommend Kara as your Realtor." - Carole

"Kara was recommended to me by a friend when I was ready to buy my second home. I had had a negative experience with my previous realtor so I was a little bit wary of anyone else but Kara was a life saver. Kara was available day and night to answer any of my questions and always made me feel like I was her #1 client. I can admit now that I am a bit of a pain when it comes to my high expectations but Kara did not flinch. She is so kind and displayed such patience when guiding me and answering my 12,000 questions. Her professionalism left me feeling so at ease with what would otherwise be such a stressful process that I am happy to recommend Kara for anyone considering purchasing a home!" - Stephanie
