Purchasing property in New York City is a tough endeavor, let alone for someone out of town. Having a real estate agent is just not enough to navigate the obstacles that seemingly arise at every corner. In today’s world you need an agent, advisor, mentor and all-around real estate guru to guide you through the process. Basically, that is Karen all wrapped-up in one. She is amazingly patient yet aggressive when needed, hands on, but not pushy, and goes above and beyond of what is expected of a traditional real estate agent. From locating the perfect apartment, to negotiating a great deal and recommending the perfect attorney, to taking care of the finishing details such as installation of custom closets and designer blinds, Karen made my arrival a seamless journey. So, if you are looking for a modern real estate agent, one that anticipates rather than reacts, then Karen should be your first call.
