Karen actually helped my parents first and they recommended her to me. She really gets to know you as a person and finds exactly what you are looking for. She found me the perfect little house I was looking for in the perfect location. She is truly devoted to her position and works hard to get you what you want. I highly recommend her to find you your next great home.

We worked with Karen over a 5 month period to narrow down our search area and then eventually make an offer. Every thing was in speed up mode, as we did offer to close in under 28 days! Karen always looked out for our interests, was patient and very knowledgeable about the area, which is now our new home. Constantly professional and persistent, we'd highly recommend Karen!

Karen went above and beyond to help me buy a house. She negotiated with the seller's realtor, worked after hours and weekends, and even while she was out of town. this is my second experience with her and both were excellent

I highly recommend Karen Leonard as your real estate agent. She was most instrumental in the acquisition of our property. Our first concern was that we were not from the area in which we were looking for our retirement home. Karen assured us that she often represents buyers from out of town, state, and country. Indeed, the buying experience was seamlessly executed from the right location, right price, and right outcome.

OK What Can I Say!!!!!! Fantastic!!!!! Awesome!!!!! Professional!!!!! Exceptional!!!! Educated!! If there were a Doctorate in Real Estate she would have one. We are a professional couple. My family has been in Dunedin for years and moved out of the area 10 years ago, however resided there on the weekends. We went through several unprofessional and unknowledgable Realtors. We saw numerous homes to use on the weekends and eventually move back home to Dunedin. We then found Karen. She interviewed us, found out what we wanted and she found us our home in 3 property shows. You can trust her!!!!!! We live on the other side of the state during the week and Karen took care of everything. I mean everything. She was right on with the appraisal. Actually it appraised for a little more than what we offered. And negotiated hard with the seller. She is great. We will be using her in the next 18 months when we relocate back for a larger house. Use Her!!!!! You won't be disappointed. Dr P Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
Karen provided me a list of homes in the communities I specified, and we began the process of communicating via email to discuss properties. I was reluctant to engage the mortgage broker she recommended as I had already received a approval letter for a sum twice the amount I had set as a limit. Karen provided me one MLS detail file on a home, and I wrote back listing several others that I was interested in. I included a caveat in my email that I didn't want to over-extend my use of her services since we had not yet met. I have sent two subsequent emails over a two week period with no response. I feel I must have asked too much, but don't understand why she couldn't simply tell me the limits of her services pending our formal introduction. I felt this lack of communication was unacceptable as all buyers need questions addressed, so will take my purchase elsewhere. Less ... More

Karen was wonderful in helping us find a condo. She anticipated our needs, handled all the paperwork, and even caught a mistake in the closing papers. Overall I would highly recommend her! PS This was a short sale, so she is proficient on that aspect as well.

Karen Leonard was a pleasure to work with. Selling property located in one state and residing in another can be stressful at best. She made it happen. I appreciate all her help from start to finish. I would recommend her to anyone who was interested in buying or selling property. Thanks for a job well done!

As first time home buyers we chose Karen based on the reviews here and we can say that she is worthy of all the glowing recommendations. She is extremely knowledgeable and patient. Her relationships with local service providers made the home buying process quick, smooth, and painless. If you are in the market do yourself a favor and give Karen a call.

Ms Leonard was a great help to me. I tried to contact several agents on this site and Ms Leonard was the first and only to reply. She took her time to help me with all my needs including contacting a lender. As it turns out I did not purchase a home, yet, and it will be at least a few months until I do. They looked out for me and offered advice and answered my questions to make sure I understood and was comfortable with my buying decision even if it meant losing an immediate sale. Her professionalism is TOP NOTCH and she showed that she cares more about helping people then making sales. Less ... More

Karen is AWESOME!! She was there every step of the way. None of my ferquent questions bothered her, and she answered all communications almost instantly. She is very knowledgeable about the area, and was extremely honest about the homes we looked at. She didn't try to sell me on anything I didn't like, and there was never any pressure. When it came to the purchase, she was constantly on top of everything, and worked hard to negotiate the deal I wanted. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!

Karen was awesome!! Our first house we put a offer in fell through, and we were out the next week looking at more homes. Glad we had Karen by our side for the purchase of our first home. Definately goes beyond the call of duty!

I couldn't recommend Karen Leonard enough! My wife & I started are home search 2yrears ago but due to some unexpected job changes it halted our endeavor. Karen was so supportive during this time & stayed in touch with us with out being annoying. Karen new what we where looking for & continually went out of her way to not waste our time on properties that didn't meet our criteria. When we finally found our home.Karen negotiated a price that I didn't think was going to be negotiable! Karen is truly a professional that cares about her clients needs & is willing to go that extra mile for them! Less ... More

The first time I met Karen Leonard she represented a buyer for a property I was selling; she did such a great job for the buyer that six months later when I had a second property to sell I immediately called Karen. In both cases representing the buyer and as representing me, the seller, she was the ?deal maker? always on top of all the details and always pushing both sides to the next step, closing the deal. Her persistence and attention to details during a very difficult market period is what made it possible to close both properties in record time. I will never hire anyone else again; I now consider Karen ?My Realtor?. Tom Monahan Less ... More

I would highly recommend Karen Leonard. Karen is extremely professional. She has a very comprehensive understanding of the real estate market. She is exceptionably responsive and goes above and beyond the call of duty. My specific situation involved a high contested divorce and Karen had to deal with a number of unique issues that commenced with the listing of our home and continued through the closing. She attended a number of court hearings related to the listing and marketing of our home. She was able to address all issues and treat all parties with respect and dignity. Karen is unique - truly one of a kind. My only hope is that the commission Karen earned was not the hardest commission she had to work for. Less ... More

I totally enjoyed working with Karen in the purchase of my condo. She was personable, professional and very knowledgeable about the real estate market. I had been working with several other agents and none of them were showing me homes that I could afford until I found Karen. She listens to what you say and follows through. I will definitely use her for my next home purchase.

Karen was wonderful in helping me find just the right condo. I was unsure of exactly what I was looking for and she did not hesitate to show me all kinds of different properties. She walked me thru the differences of all my options and without losing patience, helped me find just the right property for me.

If you want to make your home buying or selling process easy, you must use Karen Leonard. She is honest, aggressive and caring. My husband and I had a hard time finding the home that met all our needs and price. Karen stuck with us and never seemed annoyed or to pushy. When we used her to sell our home we almost gave up but she pulled through and got us a great deal. I recommended Karen to my friends and they share the same experience!

An extraordinary, ethical and gifted professional with the highest personal integrity and standards. I will never buy or sell another property in this area without her calm and diligent expertise. Working with Karen was by far the BEST professional and personal experience I have had in all my years of architectural design and home restoration. I seldom make recommendations, but I am now and you can take my solemn word - there is NONE better than Karen Leonard in every aspect of her job.
