    I have known Karen for many years and knew she would absolutely be the one for me. Her caring nature, drive, willingness to go over and above, her personality and genuine goodness were all what made me pick her. Karen made this so easy for me in difficult circumstances - I feel she had my best interests in mind through all of this process. I couldn't have sold and bought a new house without her knowledge , work ethic and help. I will recommend Karen to anyone I know. I'm a happy camper because of Karen!

    Karen worked as hard as she possibly could for me. I could call her at 10 PM and she'd have a contract offer written by 10:15. She is a tireless asset for any buyer and I'd assume the same for any seller. Karen is and will continue to be the go to agent for my family and I. And I will strongly recommend her to any friend that may be in need of her and her team's hard work.

    Karen Barker was referred to us by a trustworthy friend. I am glad I made that phone call. She is now part of the family. She always looked out out for our best interest and went beyond to find what we needed. She now has our complete trust and we will always use her in the future. Trust is a big thing to us especially in this world today. Karen will always do what's right and my family is now glad to call her a friend.

    Karen was a referral from a friend. We were moving from 1000 miles away and desperately needed someone who was not only a go-getter but also very connected to the community and didn't mind going the extra mile . Karen went above and beyond for our family. I never had to ask her to go look at a property. If we sent her one via text or email, she was on it. Even if I hadn't asked her to go look at it, being 1000 miles away, sometime she would let me know a couple hours later that she had already gone and looked at it and knew that it wouldn't fit our family or it was promising and had taken a video already and was ready to do a FaceTime walkthrough. She was knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and fun. Karen not only knows real estate thoroughly but also knows houses. See saw things in houses that we hadn't even considered.. She was exactly what we were looking for. Assertive, go-getter that wasn't bound by typical business hours I can't say enough about this agency and Karen Barker as an agent. I would recommend to anyone and plan on using them in the future. Karen was a belling to our family. We were a difficult sale and Karen never made us feel as such.

    I think my answers states my feelings and experience with Karen Barker.
  • Seller review
    When it came time to sell my house I knew Karen was the only agent I needed to call. Her hard work and dedication combined with her extensive knowledge of the area has always proven to be a winning match. Karen had my house under contract in 2 days!! I would not hesitate to call her again should I ever need to sell any other property, residential or commercial.
