What my Clients are Saying...
"Karin was/is FANTASTIC to work with. We found her randomly when she showed us a unit on Silver Strand in Marina del Rey. We didn't pull the trigger since it was the first one we had seen in our search, but we did pull the trigger on Karin. She KNOWS the area. She knew what properties are worth, and she actually WANTED to know what worked for us and didn't. I never once felt pressured by her (as I have by so many agents before her), and at a couple points actually predicted properties that we wouldn't like, saving us a ton of time and headache. She ended up finding the PERFECT place for us, got us accepted UNDER asking (unheard of in 2020's market) and was a great guide through the whole process. I recommend her to anyone and everyone that asks, no matter where they're looking. But if you're looking in the Marina del Rey / Venice / PDR adjacent areas, she is without a doubt the right choice in an agent."
~ Michael, Marina del Rey
"Karin has helped me sell my house, buy a new house and helped guide me with an out of state property sale. Every single transaction has been done in a very professional manner. She's highly competent, knowledgeable, and works hard to make sure her clients are happy and get what they want. Outstanding service as she does a lot of legwork and research so her clients don't have to. Best decisions I've made this year in having Karin represent me in all of these real estate transactions!"
~ Vicki, Westchester
“As co-trustees of our deceased mother's estate, my brother and I engaged Karin to sell Mom's condo in Marina Del Rey. Karin demonstrated knowledge of the Marina Del Rey market and carefully guided us on how to prepare the property for sale for optimum return. She made herself available to grant access to vendors and repairmen on short notice during COVID. She was professional throughout the process and very pleasant to work with. My brother and I are grateful for Karin's patience and guidance during the process. We were especially pleased with the sales price and Karin's efficiency in resolving problems. Our mother would be pleased with the outcome! I would highly recommend Karin to sellers and buyers alike!”
~ Denise, Marina del Rey
"This is the second time Karin has helped me to find a place to live. She first helped me find a rental when I moved to L.A. and has now recently helped me purchase my home. Karin is incredibly professional, proficient, kind and helpful. I never felt pushed or pressured by her in the least, and always felt she had nothing but my best interests in mind."
~ Julia, West Hollywood
"Karin's dedication to making the home buying process as smooth as possible was evident every step of the way. Whether it was coordinating with various parties involved in the transaction or addressing our concerns promptly, she displayed a level of professionalism that left a lasting impression on us. Thank you so much!"
~ Jayson, Beverly Hills
"In an extremely competitive, and often stressful, environment like real estate, there is no one I'd rather have in my corner than Karin. She is professional, experienced, and 10 steps ahead of any situation that could go wrong. (Things will go wrong.) Karin helped my wife and I buy our first home. We had a lot of questions and Karin answered all of them at all hours. She couldn't have been more patient and friendly. We weren't the highest offer but we moved into our dream home because of Karin's ability to build relationships and gather intel. We could not have done it without her. My Dad referred Karin to us because she helped him with his home, and I will easily refer Karin to all of my family and friends."
"Karin helped me buy my first condo in Venice. It was a long and emotional process for me, with lots of back and forth with the seller. Karin was here for me all the way through, offering her presence, time and advice anytime I needed it. She went out of her way to make sure I was happy with all aspects of the purchase, including things that she was not responsible for, yet did so that I would be happy and comfortable: for example, repairs that the seller should have taken care of. She even looked into the details of the properties surrounding mine, and went to a meeting to gather more information about a homeless shelter that is under construction in my neighborhood, so that I would have all the information I needed to make a decision. Finally, she connected me with excellent contractors for inspection, home remodel, etc. It was all around a great experience for me as a first time buyer, and I highly recommend Karin for all your real estate needs!"

Karin stuck with us through thick and thin. She showed us a lot of great houses, pointing out the good qualities and the issues of concern. We grew to respect her opinion and knowledge of the real estate/loan/escrow process. She knows so much about the area and traffic flow, which was important since we were so new to the area. She took all of our questions and concerns …

I have known Karin for several years as she and her husband own a condo in the same complex as I do. When I put my place up for sale I pondered who to give the listing to. As we all know, there is no shortage of agents out there who want your listing. After considering several I finally decided on Karin because I thought she would do the best job overall. Karin …
