We have known Karen for over 10 years. She has helped up both sell and buy homes. She is a perfect blend of authority (strong negotiation skills rooted in many years of experience) and humanity (helping guide client's to make smart, good choices that impact their future). She never compromises her client's needs for her own and has given us advice that has truly impacted us in a positive direction. During the emotional stress of buying/selling, she provided realistic reassurance and made the process more bearable. We think she is trustworthy and solid. We would never sell or buy without her!
Karen is a true professional. She’s worked in the bay area real estate market for many years (especially San Francisco), and the knowledge and connections she’s accumulated always works to her clients’ advantage. She helps her clients navigate through the most competitive circumstances, and she gives honest, unbiased advice, which allows her clients to accurately set their expectations, which I found very valuable. She’s extremely kind and genuine, and lots of fun to work with. I can’t recommend her enough.
Karen is very client-focused, responsive and attentive throughout the process. Her level of commitment and dedication are top-tier and she really takes the time to understand her clients’ sensibilities, preferences and goals. Karen also know the San Francisco market very well and is well connected with other agents. It really helps to have someone that has those types of relationships with counter parties.
Karen did a very nice job of helping us manage our offers, which requires patience and discipline in the ultra-competitive SF market. Once under contract Karen was also able to profile us help with our lender, and with her network of contractors and inspectors, all of whom we liked. We will work with Karen again when we are back in the market and I highly
recommend her expertise. (2 time client)
Karen sold our house and later helped us buy our current home she is truly a person with integrity and her honest approach to her work is what makes her a successful agent, as well as a human being! We trust her completely to recommend close friends to her. She has a unique blend of holding on to her own authority/knowledge while never foregoing her client’s needs.
Karen Gould came to our rescue after we had terrible experiences with two other San Francisco realtors who were unsuccessful at finding us a home in an aggressive real estate market. After counseling us through our expectations, she lifted our spirits and over the years has helped us purchase and sell two amazing properties. (2 time client)
The way Karen has handled this assignment is nothing short of outstanding. Not only was she highly effective and professional as a realtor but she was also someone who had the patience to understand our very specific needs and then respond in a highly personal way. We cannot praise her enough. (3 time client)
Karen sold our house (8 years ago) and several years later helped us buy our current home. She separates herself out from other agents because she cares more about whether you’re getting a fair deal, either buying or selling, than she cares about her commission. (2 time client)
I couldn’t recommend Karen highly enough. She helped us navigate our move to SF (and our first home purchase) from start to finish, giving us a sense of neighborhoods, price points, investment strategies and expectations so that we could align our personal priorities with market trends and realities.
Karen was recommended to us by good friends and we were very pleased with her level of expertise and client service. She has extensive knowledge of Bay Area real estate and is very attentive and involved, which we appreciated as this was our first home buying experience.
In our first transaction, Karen saved us tens of thousands of dollars using her connections and savvy to ascertain the strike price needed to outbid our competitors, which was far lower than the offer we had originally prepared to make.
You were knowledgeable, trustworthy, honest, reliable and certainly worked in our best interest. Your availability and sense of what was really important to us was invaluable. You are a star in all aspects of your profession.
We trust her with our most significant investments, and not just because of her diligent efforts and professionalism. She’s one of the kindest, most thoughtful and pleasant people we’ve ever worked with.
It is rare indeed to meet someone who is not only a true professional at what she does but also has a very human touch to go with it and we feel fortunate indeed that she represented us.
It was Karen’s intelligent market insights, constant telephonic briefs and explanation of options and, finally, rapid execution of decisions that enabled us to land this property.
