Choosing a realtor to either buy or sell a home can be an intimidating decision. You probably don't know any of these people but their descriptions of their working experiences do a better job of describing me and my approach to real estate than anything I can say.
"Karin is extraordinary. Her deep experience of the marketplace helped her craft an original strategy for our sale, with an unexpectedly great result. We felt safe in her hands, including in terms of engaging with international buyers. Watching her at work during the offer process gave us enormous respect for her professionalism and skill. She is a perfect partner and leader for your real estate objectives."
Tracy Proke & David Vogt, Pt Grey & Strathcona
"Over the past four years I used Karin to sell one property and to buy two others on Vancouver's West Side. I found her to be knowledgeable, conscientous, & calm under pressure-all very important attributes in a realtor. When any issues arose, she acted with speed and integrity to resolve them. I have been thrilled with the two properties she got me into. She has a way of advising without dictating and it certainly paid off for me. I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend her. In fact, I found her through word of mouth from a friend who was also delighted with her work. Her reputation is one of excellence."
Susan VF, Kerrisdale & Kits
"We really enjoyed working with Karin on the purchase of our condo. We appreciated the time and effort she took to understand our needs and provided helpful, informed advice. When our plans changed throughout the search, Karin was quick to adapt and lead us in a new direction. She truly wanted us to find the right unit in a good building. Thanks again Karin, we love our new place!"
Sarah L & Mike S, New West
"Karin we want to thank you re the sale of our condo in Kerrisdale. Although the condo was desirable, the market had changed considerably. You were professional, courteous, & punctual. You kept us well informed after each showing and you valuation proved correct."
Bill M, Kerrisdale
"I have worked with Karin for almost a decade, having bought and sold two homes with her assistance during that time. Karin is extremely knowledgeable about the market and takes a very professional approach to working with her clients. She is a great listener and communicator and endeavours to understand your needs (and what is behind them) which she translates into an approach to working in Vancouver's often volatile housing market. That means you don't waste a lot of time looking at properties that aren't suitable and that she is frank about any shortcomings that she sees, based on what she knows of your needs, as well as opportunities.
I worked with Karin in two very different housing environments. The first time I bought/sold in a very fast market period, selling even before holding an open house with multiple bids over asking price. The second time was during a much slower market in which we looked over a period of time for a new home and in which it took several months to sell my home. Karin was persistent in bringing prospective buyers and we happily found a match in the price range I was seeking. In both cases she put my interests first and managed the situations at hand to successful conclusions.
Karin is very accessible, responsive, and personable, and I know is well respected in her field. I have recommended her to several of my friends who have become her clients and they would echo what I am telling you. I can unreservedly recommend her to you."
Paula M, Oakridge, Kits
"Karin thank you so much for your knowledge, persistence, and availability in helping me hunt down a new home. You did a great job of keeping on top of the very particular townhouse options I wanted and arranging showings. The bidding wars were a challenge, but in the end I have the perfect place. I couldn't be happier. Thank you so much. I couldn't recommend a realtor more highly."
Dr Gary C, Kits
"Karin helped sell our long time family home very quickly for more than asking price & got us a condo with a marvelous view for less than asking in a week. Highly recommended."
