Kate Towler and Norm Hawkins (2018)

"Karen was a great help in both the selling of our old house and the purchasing of our new house...In our experience, some realtors like to have tons of listings and then sit on them while other realtors do the selling. That is not Karen. She loves matching prospective buyers with your home. In tough times she managed to sell our house in 42 days at 96% of the asking price. She did this by holding 4 open houses and really took a hands-on approach to selling...She actually helped before we even had an agreement to list as she went through our house and made suggestions as to how to properly showcase our home. Not so much 'staging' as easy-to-do things that cost very little...She also did a lot of research to help us arrive at an asking price. Of course, as sellers we want as much as we can get. But Karen did not inflate our value just to get the listing. She was very reasonable in her approach and was able to show us recent selling prices in the area. We did not need the dreaded, "Price Reduced" sticker on our listing...Where Karen really shines is in helping you look for a house. She loves taking you around to find just the right place. We gave her our specifications of what we were looking for and we went together to look at many different places in different neighborhoods. She also sent us new listings that just came up based on our criteria. It took some time but she was very patient with us and we narrowed it to a specific area and a specific type...She made a pretty stressful time a very pleasant experience. Because of Karen's diligence and guidance, we were able to "pounce" on a house when it came up and now own a home in the area we wanted with the features we were looking for". 

Rachel Malahay (2018)

"In a city where realtors abound, I found a true gem in Karen Patterson. Karen was very patient and respectful of the way I process decisions. Yet she provided professional advice to keep me realistic within my restate goal. As a parent herself, she didn't miss on giving me advice about schools and nearby facilities suitable for my family. She made sure I understood when it came to numbers, comparable markets, prices and represented me in a professional manner during negotiations. She listened to my wants and needs and helped me decide on a neighborhood to choose my next home. Karen truly listens to try and understand her clients. I've purchased other homes in the past with many other realtors and with confidence I can that Karen is an honest and true professional who genuinely cares about her clients; qualities that are hard to find in a realtor, Karen Patterson's got it."

Krystal St. Germain (2017)

"Karen went above and beyond my expectations. She was very friendly and efficient in her communciations and actions. I was always made aware of any viewings, given feedback and weekly e-mails of 'hits' on my property through reatlor.ca. Living in Victoria, BC, I trusted Karen completely to handle everything from Calgary. I highly recommend her for your realtor needs!" 

Peter Klingvall (2017)

"Karen was very helpful in providing support through a number of her extensive contacts that really helped our sale move forward. This included contacts for legal, yard and painting as well as coordinating and meeting with these contractors! Very helpful considering I was often out of town during the sale. I would encourage clients to feel free to lean on Karen for her support!"

Rick Hilton (2017)

"You did such a great job for me. Thoughtful, huge effort, prepared for every viewing. You gave me good sound advice and it was a pleasure working with you. In fact in did not feel like work at all. Thank you again for being such a great agent. I would not hesitate to refer you to everyone.  Thank you again for helping me find my own home for the first time in my life, thank you!". 

Erin and Joe Palashniuk (2017)

"Working with Karen to sell our home was a seamless experience. Selling a home can be stressful and Karen minimized any potential stress for our family during the sale of our home. She looked after making sure the pictures were done by a professional and stayed on top of showings while we were away on vacation. We would not hesitate to recommend Karen to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."

Tim Ackerman and Alexis Bustemante (2017)

 

“The process of selling your house can be daunting but Karen was able to guide us through everything seamlessly. Choosing Karen to represent us was definitely the right choice. Her personal attention, professionalism and communication were instrumental for getting our house sold quickly. Thank you so much for everything Karen.”

Angela and Chris McQueen (2016)


“We met Karen through her website and invited her over to our condo so we could meet her.  We wanted to see if she would be a good fit for us in our upcoming real estate transaction. Karen arrived as a stranger, and though the whole process has left as a friend- we couldn't be happier. Karen guided us through everything from pricing our current home to helping us secure our next dream home with class, respect and humor. She is very professional, very knowledgeable and has been an absolute pleasure to both sell and buy a home with. Karen is wonderful for following up and through, she's very honest and has provided excellent advice and support every step of the way through the transaction.  We have and will continue to   recommended Karen to our friends and family- and although we love our new house, when it's time to move, we will certainly be calling Karen!”

Owen and Samantha Wright (2016)

"Karen was so helpful and informative during the house buying and selling process.

She was extremely supportive and made us feel at ease during what is supposed to be a stressful time but it wasn't in the slightest. We have no hesitation in recommending Karen to others. We will certainly be asking to work with her again in the future"

Audra Zawada (2016)

"What started out as just a call, turned into a wonderful experience for my family selling our home in Calgary. Karen promptly responded to our request and had all the details we needed to get moving. We met with Karen and signed with her immediately.

Our home was listed for 50 days - and during this time, Karen went above and beyond what we expected. Pictures were taken, listing details approved and open houses were scheduled immediately. Touch base and follow up emails were clearly documented and statistics from our area and communities close were always provided.

An offer came in with only 6 days left on our contract - while I was away in the States. Karen made this process seamless and took a lot of pressure off us during the negotiation. After 2 days, we had the house SOLD!I would, in a heart beat, recommend Karen to any family or friends looking to sell or buy a home. They will be treated fairly and with such respect.Thank you, Karen, for all that you've done for us"

Mostafa and Rim Atir (2015)

"Our first contact with a real estate agent was with Mrs. Karen Patterson, who did really professional work. She helped us a lot to make a better decision to buy our first new house. She delivered a high level of service, transparency and knowledge.

From our first search to our home closing, she gave us personalized attention while we were outside of Canada. She was always replying to our emails quickly even during weekends. She also attended the home inspection process, too.

Karen, we would like to thank you for being so honest to work with us for your time, assistance, hard work and help in buying our new house.

We highly recommend Karen for your real estate needs."

Lisa Gaumont (2015)

"Thanks again for all of your time and efforts in helping me find my new home. You stood by me through the highs and lows, and when I found my dream home, you dropped everything on your BIRTHDAY for me to see it and help get this deal done. I was so appreciative of that - signs of a GREAT realtor, and I will be sure to pass your name onto anyone that is looking to purchase. I really couldn't have done it without you :-)"

Jeannette Seegobin (2014)

“I wanted to share the success story with you and the impact that Karen Patterson had on my quality of life. Yes I am certain we can all agree that Karen is good at her job. The reason I am writing is to ensure there is awareness that Karen goes beyond that… Time was irrelevant. No matter what time I sent a message there was a reply within hours (outside of ‘work hours’)… Software technical difficulties were never a barrier, Karen found a way to send me files that I could upload onto my smartphone (no PC available during the move)… Details were followed, when I provided the needs and wants list Karen immediately was able to find possibilities. She never did she say ‘ohhhh, that could be tough’… Delivery, Karen not only found a rental, she found us a home in an area that suites us…"
