Client Referrals for Realtor Karen Aulino
“Karen was extremely diligent in her preparedness and activity to sell my home. In a tough market she advised me on the right price to list my home, had it listed on multiple real estate web sites, made sure that she had information prepared for potential buyers that proved the home’s value and held multiple open houses to provide maximum exposure. She really did a great job to sell my home quickly and at a good price. I would highly recommend Karen to handle any real estate needs and would not hesitate to use her again.”
“Karen is an ideal realtor. She’s interested in helping you sell or buy a home that’s right for you, and not just to complete the deal. She truly goes out of her way to help with every aspect of the sale. She protects you from any unknown problem. She communicates with you regularly in person and by email. She treats you as both a friend and client. She is completely dedicated to the sales process. She doesn’t just sit by the phone or rely on the multiple listings. She truly cares about each and every one of her listings. When others couldn’t sell my home, Karen stepped in and wouldn’t rest until it was sold.”
“Karen was able to figure out exactly what we wanted and gave us a number of good choices. Never a wasted visit. All suited our needs.”
“Karen provided the perfect balance between getting the job done and keeping us in the loop. Every call, email or contact was meaningful and her negotiation with buyers agent was effortless.
Highly recommend Karen. Great personality and respected by her peers in the industry.”
“Karen is the ultimate real estate professional. She is knowledgeable, responsive and personable. We would definitely ask Karen to be our real estate agent should we decide to sell or purchase another property.”
“I have been home shopping with Karen over the past year. I referred Karen to two of my friends who were selling homes and both sold quickly and commanded premium prices. In one case, a condominium that had been previously listed with a different broker for six months and had no offers was sold within days of Karen getting the listing and actually ended in a bidding war. Karen recommended improvements to the owner and had photographs taken by a professional photographer. I highly recommend her.”
“Karen is currently working with me in the sell of my house. She keeps me informed as she shares the feedback from the showing of my home. Karen is always ready to listen and give suggestions when asked. I am pleased to be working with her and would highly recommend her to those looking for a realtor who is very knowledgeable and caring .”
