First and foremost we absolutely would not have been able to purchase our home without the help of Mrs. Karen Thomas. We were faced with many challenges in purchasing our home and she was there with us every step of the way. Our first lender walked away from us four days before closing. We thought our dream was not going to happen. Mrs. Thomas encourages us to speak with a lender in our neighboring city and we were able to close on our home shortly after.
We were going to give up after our first lender but Mrs. Thomas helped us to realize our dream was still in reach. We cannot thank her enough for all her efforts. Our goal now is to provide the most positive feedback we can to potential buyers of her performance. She is truly a Professional in her field. Sincerely Pete and Kim Scott.
I had the honor of meeting Karen about 3 or 4 years ago while searching for farmland to purchase. I was highly impressed with her. She is, without a doubt, the best agent in the world! Century 21 is extremely fortunate to be associated with Karen. We have purchased other properties since our initial purchase and would not consider even speaking with another agent.
Through our business relationship Karen and I have become good friends. This is due to her great professionalism and winning personality. Mike J Wynn
