Just closed a transaction with Karen and she was AMAZING! Communication and accessibility are high on my priority list and she exceeded my expectation! I also appreciated the time and patience she showed these "first time" home buyers educating them through the process. Highly recommend!

Rachael Bauer recommends Karen Dunn


Karen represented the buyers on a listing I had, and did an INCREDIBLE job. She constantly kept us in the loop on the status of the loan, and regardless if there was something important or not, she touched base with me every couple of days. I felt extremely confident in her buyers and the transaction was one of the smoothest I've every experienced. Thanks Karen!

Karen’s consistent and timely updates were so appreciated and professional. I never had to follow up or check in as she would beat me to it. I was never left wondering where we were in the transaction. It was such a pleasure working with her and her team and look forward to working together again.

Starla Martin recommends Karen Dunn

Let’s be honest buying a home is stressful! Karen made what was a very anxious somewhat confusing necessary evil as relaxed as possible. She was available day and night answering our calls and emails immediately. She was present throughout the whole process and very patient as well. Now that we are homeowners Karen is the only thing we miss about the whole process, in fact I’ve thought about calling her and saying hi! Without hesitation we would recommend Karen and her group at Big Valley Mortgage for your next loan consultant needs.

Realtor, Sales Manager

Michelle was right on top of the process, she reached out to me upon submitting the offer and kept me in the loop throughout the entire process. As the listing agent, I really appreciated being included in the updates, as it allowed me to continually update my clients on the progress. Not only was Michelle's communication excellent, but she also closed early, which was awesome!

Tim Miguel

My husband John and Myself are both super happy with Alexandra. She is exceptional! When we found out we needed to move to San Diego she was a godsend and she helped council us on our options. We wanted to buy then sell our home in Sacramento and she assisted us in finding the best choice to accomplish our goals. Thank you Alexandra, we couldn’t have asked for better!

RE/MAX Gold Realtor

Amy has assisted me in many ways that others couldn't. I needed someone to step in when my daughter & husband were having questions with another loan agent and Amy stepped in to assist my family. She is an exceptional hand holder with FTHB's and knows her programs (FNMA, DPA's, VA's and all other programs).
Thanks for all the good work!!
