"From the minute I met Karen until the last time we shook hands at settlement, she packed more work & effort into selling my house than I believed any agent would ever offer. I was, as an absentee owner, at the mercy of many factors that determine whether the house would sell. Her cheerful, "no problem" response to diminish those obstacles was not only reassuring, but, in fact, a commitment to me to look out for my interests, and she did it in a way that is rare today: she made me feel that I was her only client!"
"Karen is an absolute delight to work with and has the characteristics of a power house agent. She is insightful on market trends and guides and prepares her clients thoroughly as they look to buy a home. Karen provided a comfortable and smooth buying experience for us in a high demand (4 offers) market. She has surpassed our expectations of a REALTOR!"
"I never would have made it without your wonderful help. I remember the first day you came to my house. You came to me highly recommended. I knew right away that you were the one I wanted to handle the sale of my home of 51 years. Always, you were always energetic, bright, shining and patient. I appreciated you every step of the way, and want to express my thanks for what you did for me. I will recommend you highly."
"Most people believe that buying a house is one of the most daunting events in newly married couples' lives. Karen, you made the process seem very simple and easy. You showed genuine interest in finding our 'perfect' new home, and any question we had during the process never seemed a burden. We are both so happy and loving the time we spend in our home!"
"Thank you for all of the work you did in selling our house. As with your help of our home purchase, you made the sale of the house easy for us although we do know that you worked hard to have it happen within our timeframe. It all worked out perfectly. Thank you again!"
"Karen's abilities were put to the test as settlement approached, when it was clear that the listing agent had lost touch with her client, who had moved out of the country. Working under very tight deadlines she located the sellers in Asia, got their agreement to necessary repairs, then notified their agent of the agreement, along with the new settlement date. Without Karen, the transaction would have become a mess. She is a credit to the real estate industry!"
"When my mother passed away in 2013, I contacted Karen to ask if she would help with the sale of my mother’s house. Karen’s suggestions were incredibly helpful in getting the house ready. Karen constantly informed us of what was happening in the market. When we had an acceptable offer, Karen immediately organized everything for settlement. There was never a moment that we were not kept informed about what was happening and what to expect. I have nothing but the highest regard for her professionalism."
"I will admit that when we first considered contracting with a buyer’s agent I was concerned that we would be 'wasting money' somehow. Luckily, we heard how terrific you were from our friends and you were quickly proven to be a vital asset (and an actual money saver). Your constant updates let us know you were fully invested in our home search. This process helped us find a home, which was well within our price range and one we adore. Thank you so much for your time & boundless enthusiasm!"
"We were fortunate to work with Karen Compton when buying our Silver Spring home in 2001. A few years later we bought a condominium for Debby’s mother and again, Karen worked with us to make the process as painless as possible. When we decided to leave Maryland in 2014, the choice to work with Karen was easy. Her expert advice and guidance on preparing both properties for sale resulted in nearly immediate sales. It was astounding! By all that she did to ensure our success, it’s clear that Karen really cares about her clients!"
"We are being modest when we say Karen's efforts were extraordinary. She was superb in gathering information from us which enabled her to identify several homes that she encouraged us to review and visit. Her ability to identify houses that were attractive to us was uncanny. Karen's performance was simply exceptional, and the help she provided us was invaluable. Furthermore, she gained our trust! That was not an easy accomplishment due to a prior negative experience with an agent."
"Karen Compton has always exceeded our every expectation. Over the past 10+ years, she has sold 2 of our homes for top dollar and protected our interest in the purchase of a new one. All while being incredibly tenacious, supportive, ethical and never allowing us forget our goals. Karen has handled every circumstance with outstanding patience, knowledge, and professionalism. We are happy to enthusiastically recommend Karen to our friends at every opportunity."
"In the last 15 years we’ve worked with several REALTORS. This was far and away the best outcome we have experienced. We thank you for your professionalism and expertise. You educated us about various neighborhoods in which we might be interested and the homes each offered. In addition, you continued to ask us the hard questions to hone our priorities and never displayed impatience. We are delighted with our home and with your services."
