Karen knows the area well. She was also very helpful in getting us in contact with home inspectors and in identifying contractors and vendors for home repairs and improvements.

Karen was so patient in our search for a home in Greensboro. She was always available to answer our questions or to meet us when we called about seeing a particular house. Her knowledge of the area/schools/home values helped us decide on a location for a good investment for our retirement home. We met by chance but she played a major part in our future. Thanks, Karen!

Helped me buy and sell homes
Karen worked with us as we debated buying a new home locally and selling our current home. She was absolutely great with helping us through all the steps as we did purchase a new home. Now as we ready our current home to sell she has offered much advice and help through that process. Karen knows the area inside and out, and her previous experience with contracting is invaluable as she has insight into what renovations are possible and likely to involve. She is always available, and always calm and personable. We highly recommend her. Less ... More

I was so pleased to have Karen's help as a first-time home buyer on a budget. She was thorough, attentive, reassuring, and maintained a great sense of humor throughout the whole process (which was essential to me, as I was very worried it wouldn't work out). She was responsive, even when I asked silly questions or changed my price range and my wish-list, and I ended up with a lovely home in a perfect location for me. I couldn't be more satisfied, and I know she'd do the same for any client. Less ... More

My wife and I moved to Greensboro in May 2013 and were first introduced to Karen through a rental we were interested in at the time. Karen went above and beyond to help us view two rental properties late on a Saturday evening and enabled us to secure our first home, albeit rental, in the Greensboro area. Throughout the year that we rented, Karen stayed in contact to see when we were ready to start looking to purchase. We were so impressed with her personal touch that we made a decision early on to work with her in finding our new home. In March of 2014 we started looking for a home to purchase, and Karen was with us every step of the way with helpful advice as well as extensive knowledge of the process. She was "johnny on the spot" during the actual negotiation, which I believe is the main reason we were able to secure the home with so many other interested parties. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Karen as an agent to work with in finding exactly what a person would want! The greatest thing about her??? Her personal touch and the importance of a relationship within the confines of a business transaction!!! Less ... More

Karen's performance under the conditions that we put her under was outstanding. She had to show us numerous houses in very different locations and wrote multiple contracts. She was stayed in contact with us and worked diligently to keep the process moving along.

My husband and I have bought and sold many houses. When we relocated to Greensboro we had no idea who we would call. I just happen to find Karen's name on a listing....from the very first phone call we just knew Karen would be great. Working with Karen has been the best experience we have ever had. All of our phone calls, emails and texts were answered promptly. She always had a list of houses that fit what we were looking for, and she always had a copy of paperwork for our files. Contracts were signed, delivered and returned within 24 hours. We will always recommend Karen to anyone considering selling or buying. If we find ourselves in the market again we will definitely call Karen. She was so great to explain what all the inspections. She stayed with us up to, through and after closing just in case we needed anything. We cannot thank her enough. THANK YOU KAREN!! Less ... More

My Husband and I are very pleased with Karen. She was just amazing. We had not been in the area very long and drove by our house on a regular bases. (my husband passed it twice a day). And when I drove by it I would also look at the house and then one day Tim (My husband) says hey how would you like to look at the house. Then from then on. Karen was just amazing was able to meet with us right away. Worked with us every day until we finally were able to close on the house. And now 3 months later first of the year she had closing paper work that anyone could of lost in the move. I absolutely love Karen. I would recommend her to anyone thats looking for a house. Thanks Karen Foster for all you do! Tim and Victoria Hughes Less ... More

When we had decided to move to NC, we looked for houses thru REMAX, Karen contacted us immediately and we conversed for a few months before we finally sold our house and looked for a home here in NC. Within a month from the time we moved to NC, looked at the property, made a purchase offer and went thru the purchase we owned our new home. Karen has kept in contact and has helped us thru the legal hoops and even now a few months later is still helping with info for our upcoming income taxes. I have kept her card on file to refer to friends when the time comes that they might need her services. Less ... More

Karen knows her stuff -- she knows the market, the city, the neighborhoods, even the guys to fix your gutters or touch up your paint. But most of all, Karen is someone you can trust, and there's no way to put a value on that when navigating the real estate market. Selling our house was a long and sometimes frustrating process, but Karen never let us lose faith. Her work ethic is amazing. She is tireless in pursuit of the sale. She follows every lead and makes her own leads. She combines a positive attitude with creative marketing ideas to keep your property where buyers can find it in a crowded MLS field. Karen will not only be your agent, she will be your friend. Thanks for everything, Karen! Less ... More

Over the years we have bought 7 homes and sold 6. Karen is as good or better than any of our previous agents. She instantly created a comfortable relationship and as we proceeded through the actual purchase of our home her high level of professionalism minimized the hassles of negotiating price, dealing with inspections and repairs, and closing. Karen kept us informed with phone calls as well as documentation throughout the process.

Karen was most helpful with our transition from another city to Greensboro. Although we had an existing house to sell before purchasing a house that we love in Greensboro, she waited patiently with us, giving good advice. It helped that we found her personable, giving us the feeling that we had always known her and that she definitely was by our side. I highly recommend her. Sincerely: Robert Fine

Karen was very attentive to details. Always willing to meet to discuss status/progress of selling the house. She was always reassuring and was positive with remarks as to completing the sell. Karen was good about keeping us informed of appointments at the house.

Karen is an extremely valuable person to have when you're looking for a home. She is extremely knowledgable about the whole process and has amazing contacts for any questions you may need more information on. She took the time to listen to what we were looking for in a home and was able to guide us to the right place as well as walk with us through the whole procedure.

Karen was wonderful to work with!! We moved from out of state and she was so great to educate us so much about the city and the different areas we looked at. She listened to our comments and concerns and was helpful to point out things we might not notice. She worked with the seller and did a great job negotiating. She was helpful and informative through the entire process and after the sale was complete. She was great!!!

We were first time home buyers and Karen made it such a fun experience! Not only did she know her stuff about the house, but she knew all the local areas including stores, short cuts for work, school districts and and helped us make all the right choices for us. She was available anytime we needed her, very accommodating with changes, and very tolerant of all our questions, mind changes, and first time jitters! She even has checked in with us since after our move to be sure we are happy with our purchase, which we are beyond happy with! If we were ever in need of moving again, Karen will absolutely be our choice! Less ... More

Karen was extremely helpful from start to finish. She listened to my needs and researched houses that fit those expectations. Even when I changed what I was looking for, from old/historic home, to downtown townhome, to brand new construction, she remained patient with me. Being only 25 when we started the home search process, she was able to apply her experience and knowledge to help me make the right decisions and she even made sure to include my parents in the process so that I felt comfortable. Karen went above and beyond in my eyes, I told her at the beginning of the process in June how awesome it would be to close on a house, on my 26th birthday in August. Luckily we found a brand new home that was scheduled to be finished building in the middle of August and we made an offer on it July 31st. From that point on, she negiotiated for me to ensure I was happy and she did everything possible to make sure my loan was processed timely and made sure my 26th birthday wish came true! Most people say purchasing or closing on a house is the most dreadful experience but Karen made it feel too good to be true for me during the entire time, not only was I impressed but so were my parents. They were very happy that I was in good hands while purchasing my first home. We ended up closing and signing on my house August 26th on my 26th birthday with Karen by my side! Karen was a huge asset to why my dream came true and I will forever be grateful. Less ... More
