Listed home, but didn't sell
Very knowledgeable. Not a hard sell - but a smart sell. Highly reccomend. After we met with her re: listing our home, events occurred that led to us not listing our home - but when we do,it will be with her.

From the very beginning Karen King was as helpful as she could possibly be. During the first walk through she pointed out many of the things that needed to be done in order to sell the house and also recommended very professional and reasonable contractors to do some of the work that we were not capable of. Karen and her team handled all the necessary paperwork and they guided us through the permitting process also. Karen kept us informed on every step and was also always available at the end of the phone with any questions we had. The house sold within a day of listing and we believe this happened because of Karen's and her team's expertise. We would recommend the Karen King Group to anyone looking for a realtor. Less ... More

I would highly recommend Karen and her group. She is knowledgeable, dedicated, and provides exceptional service. I was a first time seller, selling my Mom's house. Karen was sensitive to my Mom' feelings, and to family issues. Karen's support, guidance,and encouragement was greatly appreciated. I had one deal that fell through at the last minute, Karen and her team immediatedly scheduled an open house, and I had another offer. Due to a break in just weeks before closing, I was on a deadline with insurance issues. Karen went above and beyond in faciltating the closing before the insurance was canceled. It was a difficult and stressful situation, and Karen was there every step of the way. Karen and her team are true professionals and they care. I am extremely grateful to Karen and her team and I would highly recommend them. Less ... More

It was a pleasure working Karen and her group. They did everything to help us sell our home in 2004 and also helped find an agent in Anderson, SC to help us find a home there. I can say without a doubt that the Karen King Group will leave no stone unturned in representing you either find or sell a home.

Thank you! Hope your enjoying your "new life" in SC! Karen

I would recommend Karen King for any realestate transactions you might need. Not only does she have a wonderful personality. She keeps you informed on what is happening daily with your property and gives you insight as to what people look for in a home. Yes there are homes that need some work before selling, but she will point out things that are inexpensive to correct especially when a house becomes a liability. In my case it was. I had to deal, as others, with the tornado in rebuilding a new home. Which we all know was a harrowing experience. Just after that my dad passed away. Now I'm dealing with two homes. Karen lifted a lot of weight off my shoulders just by taking the reigns of my dads house and keeping me informed daily on prospective buyers and what they were looking for. The house sold. And the price was not far from what I was asking. She was also steadfast on getting that price. I commend her dedication and will be forever grateful that she could make my life a lot easier for me and my family. Less ... More

We tried to sell our house by ourselves in the spring of 2012, and we were getting very little response. We contacted a couple of realtors. Karen's office responded immediately, and Karen visited us within a few days to look at our house and explain her services. Although we had not agreed to list with her, she offered several suggestions to help make our house more attractive to a potential buyer. These were not major renovations, but primarily small things that we hadn't thought of. She explained how her company did business, but did not pressure us to list with her. After a couple of days, we called her back to tell her we wanted to do business with her. After her ads appeared, we had several showings within a couple of weeks. Some went better than others, but there were many houses for sale in our area and the right buyer didn't come along right away. We left for an extended summer trip, and without complaint, Karen agreed to take care of several things the seller would normally do. While we were gone, the right buyer did see the house. Karen handled all the negotiations. We were firm on our price, and Karen respected that. After conceding a few minor points and adding some appliances and lawn equipment to the deal, we reached agreement. Because we were leaving the area, we had no place to stay after we moved out of the house and wanted to leave Massachusetts. Karen and our attorney agreed to handle the closing without us, and it went smoothly. I gave Karen top ratings in all categories because I couldn't think of anything she could have done better. In addition to being very competent, she was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her as a sellers' agent. Less ... More

We were very pleased with the professional service that Karen and her team provided when we sold our home in Monson. She made suggestions on things we could do before putting it on the market and once on, we had an offer within two weeks. She kept us informed of every step along the way and made the process of selling our home easy for us.

Karen was wonderful to work with and offered excellent advice. With her help, I sold my home quickly and painlessly. She knew where to set the price, what up-front repairs were needed, and was always available whenever I had questions. I highly recommend her.

Karen King has represented my wife and I with three real estate transactions over the years. In 2005 she helped us with the sale of our Monson residence and the purchase of our East Longmeadow residence. In 2010, she was instrumental in negotiating the sale of our East Longmeadow residence at a time when buyers were scarce for homes in the high end catagory. In addition to getting the buyers to stretch a little for the home they wanted, she educated us and got us to be realistic in our pricing. She is always responsive, helpful and understanding of the emotional issues that go with selling one's home. She is always proactive with advising sellers as to how to prepare a home for sale so that it presents in a positive setting. I have no qualms recommending Karen King a the realtor of choice in the market that she serves. Less ... More

We sold a house and purchased another through the Karen King Group. From the initial meeting until the closing, we received first-rate service. Karen's team were all extremely helpful and willing to assist us with the entire process. We always felt that our interests came first and that Karen was in our corner. It was a pleasure working with Karen and her team and we highly recommend them.

The multiple snowstorms of 2010-2011 did me in. Karen took pictures of my home on Sat in mid-Feb, put them on her website listings that day. On Sun and Tues, the house was shown. On Wed, an offer was made and accepted. My home was sold in less than a week! Later, when I decided to rent an apartment, she found one in the area that met my needs a day after I asked her to look for one. I am very happy here. Karen listens and is very responsive to my needs. Karen helped numerous people following the June, 2011 tornado and the Oct, 2011 snowstorm. She has a generous, kind, and insightful heart and spirit.

After working with some other agents in prior transactions,(with negative outcome) it was a pleasure to work with Karen and her staff. They were beyond fantastic when helping my wife and I sell our Wilbraham Condo. Karen?s team is very personable, knowledgeable, and realistic and the best real estate agents We have ever worked with! I have since moved out of state, but if I was ever to return she would be the only one I would contact for any and all my real estate needs.You will not be disappointed should you choose to use her services!! We only wish we could have brought her with use when buying our newest home! Less ... More

Karen is an outstanding professional. In my case she was a life saver. She handled every issue that came up with during the sale and did it very quickly. She has resources that can take care of anything that needs to be addressed in order for the sale to be completed. I would highly recommend Karen. Her communication with you is always there with you taking the stress out of what can be a stressful situation.

Karen's office sold our 1st house and helped us purchase a new home in Monson MA. Kim and Karen were both very helpful. They were both available via telephone and email, they communicated well with our bank and kept us well informed about where we were in the process. Overall we have been very pleased and would highly recommend Karen's group.

I have worked with Karen for the past 15 years, She helped me sell 1 house and purchase 5 properties. Karen is very helpful with advise and expertise, she always picks up the phone (even when she is on vacation). She and her team have helped negotiate and complete some very difficult purchases, she is very diligent and persistent. I have recommended her group often and plan on many more years of working with Karen and qualified team.

Karen is a complete professional. Even when she is in Hawaii, she answers emails within a few hours. When things go wrong -- as they inevitably do in real estate -- she makes them right. She has the expertise to weed out inappropriate buyers and steer the seller to the proper party. And, for First Church at least, her generosity was overwhelming. I would unquestionably use her in my private life the next time that I buy or sell property. Suzanne Kelley Chair, Board of Trustees First Church of Monson Less ... More

January 2011 The Karen King Group did an amazing job selling my property. Kim McCloskey went above and beyond for me. I was living out of state and she took care of everything! I felt confident in her ability and her professionalism. I would highly recommend this group of wonderful people if you are in the market to sell or buy a property.
