I couldn't be more pleased with Kara. Selling a home is a very stressful process, especially for people that don' t have a lot of experience with it. Kara was there every step of the way assuring us at every point of the process. She even fielded those late night panic phone calls. I would recommend Kara to any and everyone looking to sell their home. Thanks Kara, we are so happy!!!

The entire process except the short time at the closing was a phone and internet experience.

My experience was more difficult than it had to of been and there was a huge lack of communication between both parties. I am not pleased.

As a first-time homebuyer I couldn't have asked for a better experience than the one Kara provided. Kara was great about working around my schedule (I travel during the week so I could mostly only view houses on weekends or odd hours), and really helped me through the process. She struck a perfect balance between staying involved without smothering/pressuring. I'm now in a house I am thrilled with, for a price I think was a steal and I don't think I'd be in this position without Kara's help.

Not pushy - let's you decide how fast/slow you want the process to be. Excellent knowledge of what is possible when you walk into a place (i.e. potential half-bath here, open up this closet there... etc). Honest about whether a place will work given your parameters. A+ recommendation.

Kara did a wonderful job of getting to know us and then understanding what we were looking for. She was helpful in identifying homes that fit our criteria and was also helpful in walking us through the process and evaluation of the various homes was viewed and levels of maintenance or remodeling that might be required. Her insight and assistance was just what my wife and I needed during the process. Her knowledge of what it took to close the deal and her negotiating skills also played a huge part in sealing the deal with the sellers. Thanks Kara!

To whom it may concern. Kara is a wonderful agent and I was lucky to have her through the whole process. I'm a very difficult person, I ask questions; a lot of questions. Kara didn't mind to answer all of them. When she doesn't have the answer right away, she tells me that she'll get back to me, and she always did. Kara fights for her clients. We put down 1,000.00 dollars on a house that we were interested in. My wife saw a second house that she likes better. I liked it better too. We told Kara and she didn't mind to take us the same day to view the house. After numerous e-mails to the previous seller from Kara, I have my 1,000.00 dollars back. I would never hesitate to recommend Kara to anyone. Thanks to her my dream comes true. Thank you very much! Sincerely, Harold/Nadine Jean

Kara was helpful at the beginning of our home buying experience. She showed us houses that mostly we picked. When we found the house that we wanted to buy, she did not want to be part of the process anymore. She did not even show up to our home inspection. She misled us on numerous times. Thanks to our lawyer that we saved ourselves some trouble and did not follow her wrong advice. We would never work with her again. We wish we chose somebody who is more professional and who is into details more, not mainly motivated by the money she will make right after signing the purchase and sale.

Kara was very helpful with the entire process of home-buying, from taking me to open houses, suggesting possible homes based on my preferences, and aiding with the purchasing and closing. There were a handful of minor questions that were not answered promptly by Kara, but overall, all the important issues were taken care of her in a timely manner.

Kara was the first Zip agent assigned to me. I went on the site and found a few houses that I wanted to visit. Kara emailed me to say she was setting up the visits and would get back to me with the times. The day we were supposed to go I never heard from Kara. I called her multiple times and eventually she returned my calls. She told me she had an unreliable car and would not be able to view properties with me that day. If I hadn't adamantly called Kara, I do not think she would have followed up with me. I immediately changed agents.

Kara was extraordinary! She was helpful and knowledgeable but always let us make the decisions that were best for us. She went above and beyond with her time and efforts. We were very fortunate to have her as our agent!

Having Kara assigned as our Realtor was like winning the lottery. She is so knowledgeable about so many different areas, she put us at ease immediately. She gives great advice from start to finish! She was extremely patient with us and our lack of experience with the process.

As first time home-buyers faced with an uncertain and potentially volatile real-estate market, we approached our purchase with caution and some anxiety. Kara was both patient and helpful; without her assistance we probably would not have successfully located and purchased the property we did.

There was an issue with the expedition of the P&S. Not sure where the hold up was ... the Seller's agent said they sent it over on a Thursday and we didn't see it until the following Tuesday. This issue could have been with the Attorney, we just felt this fell through the cracks or the communication could have been better. We felt rushed to sign and return the P&S once it finally got to us. Also, the rebate check took several weeks and went to the wrong address (our "old" address). Our Agent did stay on top of helping us get the check, so this dissatisfaction is more a reflection on ZipRealty than on our Agent. Overall, Kara was helpful and responsive to our questions. She has a talent for remaining calm when tensions run high.

She was very knowledgeable, showed us a TON of houses, got to know our taste, and helped us buy the perfect house! She even (subtly) helped my fiancee talk me out of what would have been the wrong one. After we closed, I recommended her to my sister.
