PRAISE FOR KARA
"Kara’s approach is incredibly authentic and kind! The way she approaches her business is truly about building a relationship with her client first…building that trust and understanding our beliefs was most important to her. She was not over the top pressing in any fashion… just real. If you are looking for an agent to help, you should definitely connect. Real. Kind. Intelligent. And there to help you and your family make the best decision. "
-Jenna & Ryan S.
“Kara was the absolute best agent to work with! Not only was she knowledgeable she was so helpful and a great support system for me. I'm a single mother and having her to lean on and ask questions at any time of day was a blessing. She was there for me from start to finish and I couldn't had done it without her. Thank you, Kara!”
“I listed my home with Kara, and it sold well within my time frame and at a price point that I was thrilled with. Kara was extremely responsive, knowledgeable, and was tirelessly dedicated to marketing my house to the proper buyers. She was a joy to work with and made staging and showing my home (despite having two kids and a dog) as effortless as possible.”
“Kara is a delight to work with! She is very knowledgeable and professional yet makes the process fun! She showed me many, many homes and was very responsive to my desires to see houses as soon as they came on the market. She worked very flexibly with my schedule. I highly recommend her!”
“We have had the pleasure to work with Kara Stringer for the second time in one year. Due to a recent relocation, we sold our primary residence and a rental house. We interviewed 2 other agents before hiring Kara to sell our first home. The price she suggested we sell for was 25k higher than the other two agents recommended. We were under contract within 3 days! Kara took on more than what was expected of her, finding contractors for inspection items and even negotiating lower repair prices. We can't say enough about Kara's extra efforts, but we would definitely be remiss if we didn't also complement her on her knowledge of the market-an aspect of home selling that can't be overlooked. We can go on and on but will sum up by saying Kara is knowledgeable, always professional, very personable and was more than generous with her time when we needed. Without reservation, Kara gets our highest recommendation!!!”
-Sandi K. & Theresa K.
“Kara is a dream real estate agent! We went through many, many different houses and finally found our dream house. From starting our home search to closing in 6 weeks. We could not have been happier to have Kara on our side through our home purchase!”
-Samantha & Billy S.
“Kara was fantastic to work with - she made the experience go smoothly and was so helpful. She was super communicative and had great advice during both the buying and selling process (we used her services for both). I would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent!”
-Kate & Trace W.
Being a first-time home buyer can be a stressful and competitive process but not if you have Kara as your realtor. She was able to provide excellent guidance, had deep knowledge of the market/neighborhoods, and very pro-active on communicating. Kara was able to help me find my condo much lower than the selling price. I would recommend Kara in a heartbeat—she’s a true professional in this industry and genuinely cares about her clients.
