Karen should get 20 out of 5 stars. She absolutely helped us determine what we should set as an asking price by having the data analytics showing what past, current and homes being built in our neighborhood are going for. Her recommendations / suggestions on what would maximize the appeal of our home by highlighting what would be a priority and minimize preparation costs for the showing. On top of all these critical functions, Karen helped by personally staging our home for open houses. She was always available to physically help with the preparation of the home for showing (eg. making runs to remove unneeded/ unnecessary items, getting additional plants / flowers to improve the street and backyard views) Just an overall impression, Karen made us feel like we were her only client and very very special. I’ve recommended Karen to all my friends who are either considering or about to sell their home. Karen’s involvement helped us sell our home in less than a day, way over our asking price AND with NO contingencies Karen is just what you hope your realtor will be. I’ve asked her for recommendations for realtors in our new area for buying our new home. Selling or buying a home, I 200% recommend working with Karen Martin

Karen was amazing to work with, she went above and beyond for us with selling our home. She was not only incredibly knowledgeable, and helpful to us, but was there for us during a health crisis that my husband was going through. I would highly recommend her to everyone!!!Thank you Karen for your hard work and caring nature! Sincerely, Erin Bakke

Karen represented us in the purchase of our new home in Palo Alto and I would strongly recommend her to others. She went above and beyond in making herself available on our schedule, and made navigating COVID related complexities a breeze. I find Karen to operate with a high level of expertise and a high level of integrity. She chased down answers to our many questions and worked her network to get us the experts we were seeking to help us evaluate the house. She's direct in her communication but also always quite pleasant, and was a pleasure to deal with. We'd absolutely work with her again.

As first time homebuyers, we could not have been more pleased to have had Karen as our agent! She navigated us through a purchase that was rather tricky (due to the pandemic and tenants in the seller’s property) with a calm and professional demeanor. Karen had the unique ability to truly listen to us, negotiate on our behalf, and went the extra mile to ensure that our needs were met. We found Karen to be enthusiastic, responsive, hard working, and thorough in all she did. We highly recommend Karen, and would be happy to work with her in the future!

Karen helped us with both buying and selling our house, she did great job both times and we had a very good experience with her as our agent. She is a hard worker, honest and made buying/ selling an easy process. We highly recommend her.

Karen did a thorough and steadfast job of marketing our house through the early parts of the pandemic and getting a fair market price (multiple bids) for it. The process was timely and well executed; I heartily recommend her services and will not hesitate to work with her again.

Karen has more energy than any other agent I have worked with in the 39 years that I have been buying and selling properties. She is assertive, open minded, honest, tenacious, and upbeat – even when the chips are down. Her business acumen is good and she is approachable about new ideas. I never had a problem reaching her and she always responded to my texts and picked up my phone calls even when she did not have an answer. I highly recommend Karen for listing your home. She also knows the area extremely well and would be an excellent choice to help you find a home in the Morgan Hill, San Martin and Gilroy areas.

Karen is a pleasure to work with. She literally put on her gloves to assist with the preparation of the property. Karen recommended improvements for the home and property to increase the sales appeal. She followed through by recommending and securing the various contractors required to complete the project. Relocating an aging relative to a retirement home is stressful enough, let alone having deal with the additional burden of property sales. Karen fully understood our situation and made the whole process much easier that we could have imagined. Thank you Karen!

Excellent team member and professional partner. Karen navigated a very difficult sale to a fair and right completion. The sale was difficult due to unethical methods of the buying agent. Karen faced each of the numerous morally suspect acts with courage and strength and always took the high road and pushed the transaction towards a fair exchange... well done!

Karen's calm, pleasant, respectful approach during our stressful home sale was brilliant. Not only was she helpful and thorough but she was able to successfully complete our sale despite challenges from an interfering neighbor. She has been a total professional.

Karen was more than outstanding at helping us find a home. We couldn't be more pleased. She was always responsive and available to show us property, answer questions and get the job done. She was professional and a pleasure to work with. Highly, highly recommend.

I cannot recommend Karen enough. She made selling our home such a smooth and easy process. Her constant communication, right connections, and sensitivity to navigating our own personal matters (we sold our house in the midst of a divorce) make her a wonderful realtor and person to work with. You can't go wrong with Karen!

Karen Martin is the only name you need to know in Real Estate. She's amazingly through and driven. Her breadth of knowledge when it comes to the local market - the micro and macro forces at work - and her ability to line up all the right players, make working with her an amazing experience. She secured for us a high quality offer that we were able to close in 2 weeks. Exceptional work all around and an absolute pleasure to be in business with. Thanks Karen!!

Karen took the worry away from us in selling our home. She handled all the inspections, painter and any county planning issue. She staged our home beyond impressive. She is enthusiastic and pays close attention to details.
