Dear Karen,

Thank you for all you have done to make our family feel comfortable and welcome not only in our new home but in all of Oconomowoc! You stuck by us for 9 long months with many homes toured while we commuted from Chicago and more often transacted business via phone and email!

You were always there to answer the call and many times the voice of reason. Additionally you always returned every phone call - and promptly I might add! You were knowledgeable about the area and the market and took the time to understand our needs and wants! The home we purchased was the 1st you showed us hitting on every point and requirement we wanted and longed for in our new home, however you stuck by us as we toured almost 50+ homes ultimately purchasing that 1st toured home as it was a PERFECT fit for our family!

Our Relocation was seamless and easy with help from you and the Shorewest Relocation Assistance Team! We HIGHLY recommend you to anyone looking for the "BEST in the BUSINESS" to sell their home! You truly have the customer's best interest at heart from the moment you meet them until the job is done!

We value your professionalism, expertise and most of all friendship!

Karen did a wonderful job assisting us in both buying and selling our homes. She was very professional, yet her personal interest and kindness helped us feel confident she was looking out for us.
Jeff and Emily Kroening

Karen made us feel at ease with each step of the buying and selling process. She took care of every detail--from staging our home to maximize its potential, to finding qualified buyers, to negotiating a satisfactory deal. This particular transaction required after-hour conferences and time-sensitive paperwork and Karen never missed a beat. Her guidance assured our success in buying the property we wanted, and her diligence resulted in a speedy sale of our existing property. From both the perspective of buyers and sellers, we highly recommend Karen as a dedicated, professional real estate agent.

Working with Karen was a pleasure, and we relocate often. She took the time to get to know our likes and dislikes, and how we want to live in our home. She knows her market very well, and took the time to show us everything possible in our price range. She went as far as following through on a property that she thought would be perfect for us that was not listed. She persevered and got us a single buyer listing and she was right, it was the house we bought. Karen goes the extra mile and looks out for your interests as a client. She was also instrumental in helping us get referrals for work to be done on the house, as well as designs for future projects. We would recommend her without any hesitation.
-Paul and Susanne Way
