Listed home, but didn't sell
Karen and her team went above and beyond. My husband and I had already had to move from our home in Leland, NC., to Houston, Texas, which created so much more work for them. They were great on every level. I would highly recommend Karen to friends, family, and acquaintances.

Karen was very easy to work with. Responded quickly, kept me informed of all activity, and was very organized. Most importantly, she got my property sold quickly and helped advise me during negotiations to get a satisfactory price.

Helped me buy home
We used Karen Schwartz to help us purchase our home. We were very happy with Karen. She was very knowledgeable, patient, and easy to work with. We worked with Karen for about six months before finding the perfect house. Karen showed us a large variety of homes and at different price points. Karen was able to guide us through the purchasing procedures as we were from another state. Karen returned phone calls quickly and answered all of our questions. I can't imagine a real estate agent that is easier to work with. We send all our friends and family to her. Less ... More

Karen does her homework; works tirelessly; possesses unrivaled knowledge of the Wilmington-Leland area. She sold my previous home and helped me purchase the home in which I now live. I've already recommended Karen to a family member who plans on relocating to the area within the next couple of years. There's no one better!

Karen has handled 4 transactions for us over the last 5 years. She is dedicated to her clients bar none, stays up-to-date with an ever-changing market and executes a flawless transaction. We cannot recommend her highly enough!

After having bought and sold 5 houses in the last 10 years, Karen Schwartz is hands down the BEST agent I have ever worked with! She is extremely professional and on top of her game! I was stunned at all the technology and tools she uses in both selling and assisting in the buying process. Her advice and experience are priceless! She was truly a joy to work with! She was able to negotiate almost full price on the sale of our home during a terrible market slump and helped to make it possible for us to purchase our new home as well! She goes all the way for her clients! I would never work with anyone else again! Highly recommend! Less ... More

Karen is hands down the best real estate professional with whom we have ever worked throughout ten real estate transactions. She is personal, professional, efficient, knowledgeable, and tends to every detail to provide a smooth transition from "for sale" to "sold." She is realistic about market value, but was willing to "run it up the flagpole" when we opted for a higher asking price. She then had a good sense of timing as we ended up selling for her original suggestion! We have also used her as a buying agent and appreciated her patience and understanding as we worked through the process, for example asking her to let us be while we sorted through some financial decisions. Karen is immediately responsive at all hours of the day and night, but unobtrusive when appropriate. I highly recommend Karen as a real estate professional! Less ... More

When I chose Karen as my agent, I knew my decision was the right one. Karen possesses all of the critical attributes that set the stage for a successful and quick sale. Her presentation was thorough, well planned, accurate and targeted. We discussed market conditions, comparables and her research was poignant and precise. Karens knowledge of our local market is superb and her knowledge of the process impressive. I don't plan to move any time soon but if I did, I know who to call! Would I recommend Karen, oh yes...she gets the job done! Less ... More

Karen was awesome to work with! I can't wait to work with her again on our next home! The fact that Karen lives in Brunswick Forest made it so convenient to meet with her when needed. She was even able to set us up with neighbors to get some minor home repairs done quickly- and they did a great job too! She is also very tech savvy- she kept us in the loop with texts, emails, calls, and we even signed our contract electronically from out of town. She was so patient with all of our questions from start to finish and ALWAYS got us answers when we needed them. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
We were thinking about purchasing a vacation home and I first contacted Karen after seeing something she had written in a city-data.com forum and was impressed with her and her non-pushy manner. Before coming down and working with Karen I requested a list of references from the past year. I received a list of about ten and I called three -- who all gave me absolutely glowing and positive comments about their transactions with Karen. There were a number of comments about how she went above and beyond what she did for her clients. Beyond her technical expertise and professional manner, she is a lovely person to work with. We did not buy when we visited initially as we were called home early due to a family issue. However, we worked with Karen over the course of the next ten months and ultimately purchased a townhouse that Karen was the listing agent and she served in a Dual Agent capacity. We understood the ramifications and elected to not take Karen up on her offer to have another agent represent us, since she was the listing agent. I had become very knowledgeable about sales prices in Brunswick Forest, so I felt confident about pricing. Since we did not actually utilize her negotiation skills in the offer amount (I made that determination), I just gave four stars to that category. From our dealings with Karen, we found her to be honest and looking out for our best interests rather what is most financially beneficial to her, If I was buying or selling another house here I would definately deal with her and recommend her to family or friends.

We had the pleasure of working with Karen when building our home in Leland, NC. We couldn?t be happier with our experience! We first met Karen 2 years ago at a party. We told her we were thinking about moving from New Jersey to Leland to be closer to family. Over the next 18 months, Karen would meet us when we came to town and even put us on her mailing list to keep us updated on the area even though we were 500 miles away. What made our experience so wonderful was Karen herself. Her follow up and attention to detail is remarkable. She is very knowledgeable about the area, and the local resale/construction market. I?m not sure how many clients use a realtor for new construction but we are so glad we did. Karen was able to deal with the developer and our builder to make sure our best interests were upheld.
