Karen was a very professional, diligent, and overall reliable agent when working through the process of buying my home. As it was a first home for me, there was definitely some hand-holding along the way (which was necessary). I gave her the specs as well as the area(s) I wanted to purchase my home, and she was readily available with recommendations/opinions. Not only was she able to provide apartment advice, she had a long list of preferred attorneys/architects/contractors/banks etc. for the closing process. Without her expertise, the process would have been quite a bit more stressful. I highly recommend her for any purchases within Manhattan as it was a very seamless process.
