Our experience with Karen Tabler was outstanding! My husband and I were first time homebuyers and quite picky/thought we knew what we wanted—but didn’t. During our initial consultation, Karen asked all the right questions to lead us to our own decisions while being straightforward on where we needed to look based on our wish lists. She followed up so quickly and scheduled some home tours. She also immediately had recommendations for all the other moving parts (lender, inspector, etc.)
The process of looking at homes was so personal and strategic. If you are looking for someone to “get you” and take you on the self-discovery journey of finding your dream home not just a nice property, Karen is your agent! We got to see a varied sampling in various areas on our very first outing! Karen is all about rolling the ball along, not wasting time, and getting the job done. We fell in love with the 4th house we saw!
Throughout the whole process, Karen made us feel like we were a priority. She was available on text, call, and emails whenever we had questions. The lines of communication were always open and there was great trust and honesty. In the midst of challenge, Karen was calm and encouraging. We were the back-up offer on our dream home, but we ended up earning the primary offer due in part to Karen’s guidance in handling the situation and the great relationships she develops with all parties of the deal.
When negotiating our contract, Karen was both reasonable and aggressive. She “went to bat for us” and we got exactly what we wanted/needed while keeping all parties feeling great about the transaction.
Karen gifted us with the most personal and thoughtful housewarming gifts and continues to follow-up with how things are going now that we’ve settled into our home. We have gained a forever friend, not just a person who helped us find a property. As first time homebuyers, Karen made something that seems very stressful very enjoyable!
