This is the fifth loan that I have done with Kara. I have recommended her 10 times and my friends love her. During COVID-19 this has been a very difficult time to do a loan. Yes she did it within the timeframe I needed and went way above the call of duty.

We have relied on Kara for multiple refinances in the past as well as recently. She is very proactive and accessible to answer whatever questions we had. Made the process as painless as it can be! Would highly recommend her and certainly have recommended to our friends.

My wife Jill and I have partnered with Kara over 20+ years including home purchases and refinancing for varied scenarios. Kara is an invaluable resource, she is very professional, detailed, reliable and she is very down to earth. I have referred Kara to friends that have spoken highly of her and I was originally referred to Kara years ago by family. You cannot go wrong working with Kara and I highly recommend her!

Kara has helped us several times with our mortgages. We go back to her because she gets results and is always on top of what is needed. We have referred several other people to her and only have high praise for the work she does.

Kara is amazing to work with! I needed a HELOC during Covid and when all other brokers and banks couldn't help, Kara was able to find me a great deal and get it done really quickly. I've purchased multiple homes and refinanced many times and Kara is by far the best!

We highly recommend Kara. Over the past 20 years we’ve worked with Kara on mortgages for both home purchases and refinancings, and have been extremely satisfied with the services received. Kara is exceptionally knowledgeable, creative, patient and very responsive- always available and happy to answer questions throughout the loan process. You can’t go wrong with Kara as your mortgage broker!

Kara is extremely knowledgeable about the loan market conditions, so is capable of giving pertinent advice about the loan situation. She is calm and reassuring when frustration with the loan company gets to you and she is excellent in communicating with you, even if you are busy and hard to reach at times. Her strong knowledge, patience and ability to communicate exactly what you need to do to get the loan process completed was invaluable to me. I highly recommend Kara.

Wow, where do I start? Kara saved us. Plain and simple. She was the second mortgage broker we worked with after getting an extension on our escrow and not getting anywhere with our first mortgage broker at another company. It was our first time buying a home and we weren't as familiar with the process as we should've been, plus had a complicated file as small business owners. Kara came highly recommended and I quickly found out why. Her level of professionalism, understanding of the market and options really put us at ease. She navigated the stormy waters like an absolute pro. Ultimately got us in our dream home with a great rate. We will without question be working with her again and would recommend that if you're even considering working with Kara, then stop your research and proceed with her immediately. Hands down, no question, the best choice you will make. I wish we would've started with her from day one. That said, she saved the day and got us in our dream home. Thank you Kara!!

I have worked with Kara since 1993 to present. Kara has always listened to my concerns of keeping my loan requests practical, affordable, and within my budget. The real estate market has been challenging over all the years of working with Kara, however, I have been able to accomplish many of my goals and objectives every time I needed to refinance my mortgage with Kara. Thank you!!!!!

Kara is wonderful! She was our lender when we first purchased this home and both times we've refinanced. We would never think of using someone else. She's professional, honest, and down-to-earth and we will continue to refer Kara to our family and friends.

I've worked with Kara since the late 90's. She's an excellent business partner. Kara was originally a referral from family, and she since has assisted me with several purchases as well as refinance transactions. I have referred her to friends as well. All have had nothing but excellent things to say about the service Kara provides.

Kara was referred to me when on one of my deals was falling apart bc we couldn’t get my buyer the loan he wanted. Kara came in and was able to do what two other brokers could not. She’s persistent, creative, and delivers!! I recommended her my best friends who are buying a house. I highly recommend her, thank you Kara!
