"Karen helped us at every stage of our selling process, and kept both buyer and seller focused on realistically closing the sale. We managed with her help to have the buyer's funds transferred in a timely way so that we could close on our Pasadena home without using our HELOC."

“At last! You found the perfect house for us country mice to migrate down from the mountains to.  I can’t imagine how you manage to focus and remember each of your client’s wishes. Your professionalism is exemplary. We are so grateful for a wonderful job.”

"Karen has been one of the most well-rounded Realtors at Perry & Co. for quite some time. Karen keeps herself educated more than most agents having acquired her CRS, GREEN & EcoBroker designations. Additionally, I see firsthand how hard Karen works on her clients' behalf, always selflessly putting their needs and interests before all others. Besides all that, Karen possesses a strong determination to get her buyers the best possible price on their dreamhome and/or get her sellers top dollar and a smooth transaction. We're proud to have Karen at Perry & Co.”
