Clients are saying…
Kara is AMAZING!!! She sold our house in six short days on the market, and listed it higher than other realtors recommended. The services she includes as a sellers agent (stager, pre-listing inspection, professional marketing package) are far beyond what other realtors bring to the table... 

Kara sold our last home in ten days - we consider her expertise and professionalism to be outstanding. From the largest details such as staging - utilizing your own furnishings - to the smallest detail like a cheerful bowl of lemons, Kara is always on call offering the most positive encouragement! To say Kara Keller goes above and beyond is definitely an understatement...

I am a commercial real estate professional and attorney and I have worked with many real estate agents over the last 20 years and Kara is among the best if not the best I have dealt with...

"Kara is wonderful. She is very supportive and knowledgeable. She has good connections locally and was able to provide the references and information that we needed. She did an excellent job staging our sale and the listing pictures were beautiful and accurate."

"Kara is fantastic!

Our first experience with Kara was when we were purchasing our house and she was the listing agent. She did an amazing job marketing the property and we eventually purchased the home. From then, we knew we wanted her to represent us if we were to sell our house.

Most recently, we did use her to sell our house and we're grateful we did. Kara is expertly knowledgeable with the area; she provided details on real estate timing, comps, etc. - but where we felt her most valuable was her keen eye on our property and how to sell it. She suggested staging our house differently and took pictures which really accentuated the beauty of our house. We sold our home well within the typical market sale.

Now that we've sold our home, Kara continues to help us find our new home. And though we missed out on some places because of either timing or dealing with uncompromising owners, we completely trust Kara with our next purchase."

"We were looking for a pretty specific housing situation as far as location and price - the types of opportunities that do not come along very often. Each time, Kara made herself available basically at the drop of a hat to help us get exactly what we wanted. She is not only an expert in the housing market, she helped me with tons of information on schools, daycares, restaurants, transportation, etc. Being new to the area, she has been a tremendous resource!"

"Kara was an absolute pleasure to work with, and went way above and beyond to help us find our dream home. There is so much you can do on your own with Zillow and other sites, but there is no substitute for a great realtor. Kara has excellent local knowledge of locations as well as additional information on properties. She really listened to our needs, pre-screened every home and gave us good insights on each. She has a strong network and was actually able to help us find the home home we eventually bought even though it wasn't currently on the market. She was with us every step of the way through the home inspection, to the final walk through and beyond. When it came to negotiating, she gave us good guidelines, reasoning for a price range and worked hard for us to get the right price. The sale would not have happened without her negotiating skills. I can't say enough good things about her. I would recommend her 100% to anyone looking for a home in her area."
