    Karen is the kind of realtor who always have your best interest at heart. Karen is great! Very helpful and made the process easy to understand and work through. She knows her values of homes and knows how to write great offers and get offers accepted. We highly recommend Karen for any real estate transaction. You will not be disappointed.

    Karen is very knowledgeable in her field as a real estate agent. After working with her to sell homes, I can honestly say that her work ethics went above my expectations. She always made herself available anytime I called with questions or concerns. Karen works hard to sell your home, If you are looking to sell or buy. I highly recomment Karen Ko.

    Karen Ko is a knowledgeable real estate pro! My home selling process went smoothly and Karen wasted no time at all. There are too many good words I could say about Karen, but here are a few quick highlights:
    1. Effective and Responsive Communicator – I normally receive her responses within 5 minutes via my preferred communication channel, text message. Her responses are short & sweet and right to the point. None of my questions was left without clear answers.
    2. Active Listener – Karen listens carefully and meets or exceeds my needs. In my initial meeting, I briefly mentioned that I’d like to prioritize investor buyers since the property was tenant occupied. I didn’t need to repeat myself even once, and a group of investors were invited on the first day of the listing.
    3. Knowledgeable Pro – At the minute Karen started talking in our initial meeting, I can tell she knows what she does well. She setup my expectations on property selling price range and final closing date estimation. Karen also showed her expertise many times during the escrow process and avoided a few potential delays.
    4. Efficiency – This is what I felt the most throughout the overall selling process. Karen is very fast in terms of preparing all required documents. She coordinated with the buyer’s agent and moved everything much faster than my past listing experience. My first meeting with Karen was on April 7th and the property was closed on May 18th. Karen managed a couple of unseen situations on the buyer side and close the deal very quickly giving the situation. I’m sure there were many communications with buyer’s agent and the escrow team behind the scene.
    5. Go the Extra Mile – Towards the end of the sales, my tenants decided to move out, which could be a dealbreaker according the contract. Karen reacted right away and handled the plan change. She negotiated with the buyer’s agent and jumped the huddles quickly. In addition, she went the extra mile and helped my tenants with many things that exceeds her responsibilities, e.g. refer rental agents to my tenants, look for rental properties for my tenants, etc.
    6. Flexibility – Karen is flexible in terms of in-person meetings. She is very accommodating to my schedule and location.
    Overall, I’d highly recommend Karen Ko as your realtor as I enjoyed my selling

    Being first time home buyers, Karen really helped us understand the process and helped ease our anxiety. She made us feel like we were only clients when it came to showing houses and responding to questions. She was always available through text or calling. Karen is extremely hard working and responsive to questions and concerns. I was very pleased with all the help that was provided. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone looking to buy a home!

    She helped us find the right house for our family twice !!! The first house we wanted more then ever she made sure we got to the right number to win the bid and made sure she went over and beyond to win us the house but always made sure that we loved the house first and it was the perfect fit, With no fault of our own or Karen our agent we fell out of escrow and it was for the best because Karen was on it found us a bunch of new listings and found us a better house so much better we forgot about the other one. As soon as we seen it we knew this was home she worked her magic with selling agents she has amazing negotiating skills and won’t take no for an answer and once again did it won the bid and our dream house is ours!! She was never pushing us into a house we didn’t love. Karen has been such a blessing in our journey for finding a new home. She has been very professional and personable at the same time. She is so helpful and helped us with any crazy request we threw her way in looking for the perfect home in the fastest and most efficient manner (no matter what time of day)!!! If we went to see a house and wanted it she made sure we got it !!! I would recommend her to family friends or anyone looking for the perfect home!!

    Karen is awesome!! We first started out with a different agent from another company he was a nightmare and horrible and didn’t listen to what we wanted had to find our own listings we were done so fired him and found a house we wanted to look at. Karen was the selling agent she was nice enough to call us and tell listing had a pending offer and if we were interested in looking for similar listings keep her in mind,Karen is not our agent yet and was listing agent for a property we had called to inquire about, she asked more questions and was more helpful then our agent at the time ! A week later we fired our agent for a lack of help and first person came to mind was that agent that followed up with us and Was interested in helping us find what we needed . It was a no brainer me and my wife called Karen back hired her as our agent and never looked back she is so helpful knows exactly what we’re looking for and does all the hard work!! I never thought the process could be so easy. Thanks to Karen she turned a nightmare experience into a dream come true . Me and my wife found a great house that checked all the boxes on our list. We could of never done it if we didn’t find Karen as our we are now in escrow with the house our family loves and throughout this process she has been amazing doing all the hard work keeping us updated and informed of every step of the way ….. Thanks Karen for making our goal of owning the perfect home our new reality !! I will refer her 100X she hasgreat work ethic, great communication and very satisfied with the experience of working with her!

    We are very thankful we met Karen from our friends referral. She made our home selling much easier then buying home. We’ve received multiple offers within only 1 week on market. And of course above asking price. In this shifting market, that’s incredible result with her magical!! Because compare with other home next street in the same community, they are still on market and lower the price with no offers at all. Karen is a true professional and very knowledgeable in her business. She answered all our questions and concerns. She went the extra mile to make sure all our needs are met. She kept us on the loop during the whole process. Kept us updated and well informed about everything. We would highly recommend Karen to everyone!!
