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... 

As a multi-million dollar producer for over a decade, Kara has vast experience ready to share with you. She is also a constant learner, keeping current on latest technologies and marketing tactics.

"Kara was great to work with! I moved out of state and needed to sell my condo. Very helpful and was able to work around my renters schedule and pet, she made everything go smoothly. Got the place sold for a great price!!"

"We used Kara to sell our home and her knowledge of the area and how our unique home fit into it was invaluable! We were kind of high-maintenance, high-anxiety clients and she was so good at managing our emotions, fears, and expectations. She guided us through this sale (our first) effortlessly and we felt so much trust in her.... she helped us to relax about the whole process because she showed us she knew what was going on and she had it under control. I want her on my team for everything I do in the future!"

"Kara was incredibly helpful, proactive, and professional. She recommended various workmen and movers to help us get the house ready for sale and then emptied out. She was incredibly responsive to questions and concerns. She helped us set the asking price and was spot on in her assessment of the local market. Our house went on the market on a Friday and we were in contract by Monday. Kara is an excellent realtor and I recommend her without reservation."

"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."
