"Karen was a huge part of our home-buying journey. She was referred to us by our lender and we are very grateful with her support and advice. Being first time home buyers can be daunting but she walked us through multiple properties and identified problems before we even noticed them. We bought the house she had initially suggested for us and are so happy with our new home. Thank you so much, Karen!"

"Karen was fantastic. I knew trying to buy a home during COVID was not going to be the easiest task. I had looked at several houses and had submitted several contracts, only to be out-bid by $10-15k over the asking price. I was starting to feel rather desperate. There were a couple houses which were not really what I wanted to put an offer on. Karen could have easily made a sale on these houses with me (they had been on the market for a while). However, that was not Karen’s goal. She kept telling me we’ll find your home. Let’s not settle. How right she was. I’m now in my dream home in a great area. She made the whole closing process seamless. She’s wonderful!"

"It is difficult to capture the level of absolute dedication and professionalism of Karen Nelson in a review. If you value your time, it will not be lost with Karen. Our very first meeting began in Nov 2019 and she specifically stated she would "work the hardest and return the best value". We accepted that challenge and despite a year long search, 30+ viewings and numerous offers, historic weather, and a world-wide pandemic, Karen delivered as promised and we found our match in Dec 2020. Her commitment to us never faltered or failed during our search. We are an active veteran family with decades of overseas service, multiple property purchases in various states, and over 11 moves across the globe. We believe Karen is the only reason we finally found our home and not a house. If you want peace of mind, Karen should be your only choice."

  -John P., Client

"I was referred to Karen following a cross-country move to Baltimore with virtually no knowledge of the surrounding neighborhoods. She did a phenomenal job listening to our wants and needs and adapting our search quickly to help us find an ideal home, in the best location for our family, within a tight timeline, and under less than ideal market conditions. Where Karen really flexed her skills and experience, however, was once we were under contract and hit a few bumps in the road. Not only did she do her own job exceptionally well, she went above and beyond to ensure the listing agent was performing as well. The deal most certainly would have fallen apart multiple times without Karen's hard work and quick thinking, and she'll be the first call I make the next time I need a realtor. "
