Karen was wonderfully supportive and professional. She helped us find and purchase our home when we arrived in STL and she helped us sell our home when it was time for us to leave.
Thanks Karen!

Karen was an amazing real estate agent, definitely the best I have ever worked with. Worked hard to help me advertise my condo and to get a better price than I had ever imagined.

Karen was fabulous! As an incoming resident at BJH, I needed to find a place to live in a relatively short amount of time. From our first meeting looking at condos, all the way through closing, Karen was on top of my transaction. She is always accessible, familiar with the neighborhoods, and clearly knows what she is doing. She made my first home purchase a breeze!

Karen was a wonder and a wonderful agent to work with. I wanted to purchase a home near BJH. She helped orchestrate a world-wind tour of 10+ homes in an afternoon - none of which met my criteria. After I left town, she stayed in touch and helped me find an ideal home remotely. Even though I never saw the home until after closing, Karen provided me with detailed reports, images, and videos of the property. She helped ensure that the inspection was prompt, pushed for and got the seller to agree to the major repairs, and then ensured that the contractors performed the work by closing. When problems emerged at closing, Karen helped ensure that they were resolved - even though I was not physically present in the city. She was an excellent communication and made me feel very well informed as to what was going on with the sale and with the house. I give her my full recommendation and would plan to work with her again in the future.

Karen worked extremely hard to find us the perfect house! She fought for us during the closing process to make sure that our dream home didn't have any hidden nightmares. She is the agent you need!

She tirelessly provided full service in the selling of our existing home and our new home purchase. She made valuable recommendations and had worthwhile insights. She facilitated access to top notch contractors. With no reservations I would give Karen the highest recommendation possible.

Karen was the best agent we have ever worked with. She cane prepared at our initial appointment. She presented the facts and gave us realistic expectations. She kept us informed of all the activities with our home. She optimized the price for our home. After the sale of our home she made sure we were prepared for all inspections. We would recommend her and turn to her again.

Executive Assistant
I cannot express how great of a job Karen did for us. She made our home shopping experience smooth and painless. We found our home in 2 days. She also went out of her way to bake us a homemade gooey butter cake after closing and it was amazing. All in all we were extremely pleased with Karen and would recommend her to anyone in need of a professional realtor.

Karen did a fantastic job helping us find a great home in Webster Groves 5 years ago. When the time came to sell our house, we again used Karen and easily sold our home within 2 days. She is prompt, responsive, and very knowledgeable. We would recommend her to anyone buying/selling in the St. Louis area.

Karen did a wonderful job helping us sell our former home. She was prompt, response, and brought a wealth of knowledge to the process.

Karen did a solid job selling my Condo. She is professional and does a good job. I felt that I could rely on her no matter what may have arised.

I sold my home within a couple hours. She did a great job guiding me to a fast profitable sale.

National Direction
We've bought two homes with Karen and sold one. And bought two homes out of state
and sold them without her. No comparison. The results alone speak for themselves.

Karen is attentive, efficient, and flexible. She took time to understand what we wanted and show is homes we couldn't find that were just right. The one house of ours she sold went over asking price in one hour! And if all that wasn't enough, Karen brings brownies or gooey butter cake when we had to have the kids along. You simply can't go wrong with Karen.

Karen did an excellent job for us - selling our home in Chesterfield within two days of listing! She was extremely prepared and knowledgeable about the market, and her experience was evident in the guidance she was able to provide us. She was very responsive - great at communicating. Also, the businesses she recommended to us for some required repairs were top-notch. We highly recommend her!

We were impressed with Karen Wagner and Berkshire Hathaway.

This was the third house we bought.

We moved to St. Louis 13 years ago. At that time, Karen was a crucial part of our relocation, helping us select a house perfect for our needs in a city we knew nothing about. When it was time to upgrade, there was no question that we would use Karen again. We were impressed that she remembered us 13 years later. Once again, she helped us find the perfect house for our family. We would recommend Karen without hesitation to anyone in need of a realtor.

Karen responded to all of our questions and requests to see properties unbelievably quickly.

Karen was very familiar with all of the areas we were looking at for our new home.

Excellent communication by phone call, text, and emails when appropriate.

Karen was the best. She was a constant problem solver. In fact, even after the house closed, a utility company was being difficult, and Karen quickly and definitively solved the problem for me.

Karen is a fantastic agent. I would recommend her to any of my friends or family in any situation. In particular, I highly recommend her for new physicians moving in to the area. She has considerable experience in that regard, which will prove to be invaluable.

Karen listened to our needs. We were dealing with a very difficult Seller (a divorcee). Karen went above and beyond to make sure that we were satisfied and to make sure that the results of the home inspection were attended to. She is an excellent communicator and this was crucial as we are an out of state Buyer.

Nov 2, 2015
Karen is an expert in the selling process. We have done several transactions with her during the past 2 decades and we have referred her to family and friends. We are very confident that she always provides the highest level of service and goes the extra mile to make the sale go as smoothly as possible.

You will be spoiled by Karen for she responds normally within 15 minutes. No one else provides such fabulous service.

Karen could teach the other RE agents how to do their job better!


Karen had to point out to the buyers' agent that he had errors in his offer--a timeline that was impossible to achieve. He was very appreciative of her help and he is a seasoned agent.

We have recommended Karen and will continue to do so.

Karen bakes wonderful gooey butter cakes. I think she should make this a side business and sell to other agents for client gifts. She could be the next Cake Boss.

highly recommend any one who wants to buy house

yes yes yes

Extremely sharp and she knows the business

She was always a phone call away, and she was always available. She responded quickly.

It was very obvious that she knew the saleable price of a home and how the market was going. I felt very confidient with the pricing portion.

It was always a joy to work with her. We developed a trust very quickly, and it made the process pleasurable.

She knows the details and she knows how to handle them. At the age of 82 I sometime get nerveous with details. She made the process a very pleasant venture.

A title problem came up, and she responded in a super manner. With her skills it became a small matter, and was resolved quickly.

Yes --- Yes --- YES

What more can I say. Karen did a SUPER job and I am completely satisfied with her work. By using Karen, we had a wonderful exzpierence, that could have gone the other way.

Really went to bat for us. Knew who to call and when to call to make things happen.

Terse and condescending at times but skill and knowledge outweight any negativity

I don't think Karen ever sleeps! She responds very, very quickly.

Walked us through the whole process as first time home buyers.

Karen was available and prompt day or night. She was so great to work with!

Great relationship with the mortgage broker which was very helpful with our physician loan financing.

Yes Yes Yes!!!
