She has been timely and responsive to all of our requests. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and the resources available to us. We successfully completed our search and are enjoying the property that we recently purchased.

I've been working with Karen for years now. She's helped me through several real estate deals, most recently the purchase of a lot for my personal home that we're now building in Mammoth. Karen has always proven to be responsible and knowledgeable of both the RE business in general, and the specifics of Mammoth, Bishop, and the surrounding areas.

I contacted Karen two years ago to begin feeling the water for real estate in Mammoth. Right away, I could tell she knew the market inside and out. While I wasn't quite ready to buy at that time, Karen was very generous with her time and knowledge. Over the past year, Karen helped me narrow down exactly what I was looking for by showing me properties all over Mammoth Lakes... always patiently, kindly and with so much information. After finding our perfect property, Karen made the purchasing process perfectly smooth and painless. She has gone above and beyond in so many ways from day one and I would recommend her to absolutely anyone. She is not only consummately professional, but an amazing human being who is such a pleasure to know. Thank you, Karen!

Scientist and Customer
Karen Nelson was awesome in getting us to our new home. The single family home market in Mammoth is a bit like if Larry David and David Lynch combined to make a movie together. So often Karen was navigating the craziness for us, "yeah ... that's kinda the way it is in Mammoth. Here's the way we should deal with it ...." Persistent, available, communicative, patient, informative - these are her characteristics. Thank you Karen!

Karen Nelson has been my realtor for the past 20 years. She has helped me sell as well as buy property.
Karen has been extremely knowledgeable about every real estate transaction in which I've been involved. I value her counsel and her professionalism. Her attention to detail is amazing. She's even been available to provide information on other real estate matters I've encountered.

Karen Nelson was the best realtor for us. We bought our condo through her and we loved that condo and our experience with her so much, we decided to have her help us find our new home. She is extremely dedicated to her clients, endlessly adjusts to their needs, has amazing intuition about what you are looking for and wastes no time in getting you into your condo or home. I can't stress her dedication enough, she works so very hard and it's all for her clients. She is incredibly selfless and will work at all hours to get it done. She has an extensive knowledge of real estate and the area and what she doesn't know she will diligently research for you. She is honest, very trustworthy, patient, kind and fun! She truly is the absolute best and my husband and I both feel there is no one better than Karen Nelson. She found the perfect home for us and we plan on living In the home we bought through her for a very long time! THANK YOU Karen!!

Karen was excellent. She was extremely knowledgeable about the market, different neighborhoods and particular conditions of the Mammoth Lakes market. She was thoroughly professional and patient with our exacting pursuit of just the right property. It was a pleasure working with her. She was a tremendous guide for navigating through the different options and evaluating the pros and cons of different types of property (i.e., condo vs. home, etc.). Most of all she was a pleasure with work with and someone we now consider a friend within the community.

General Manager
Karen is one of the brightest, hardest working and most knowledgeable real estate professionals our company has ever had the pleasure of working with. We recently closed a very complicated transaction that would not have been possible without her wisdom, vast network of industry related contacts and working knowledge of the rules and laws of California real estate. Her honest, sincere approach is an invaluable asset for anyone looking to successfully navigate the sometimes complex process of buying or selling a property. We look forward to working with Karen again in the future and highly recommend her to anyone looking for the best and brightest in the industry.

Karen Nelson Just completed a complicated sale for us involving a joint property with a house and business. After a lot of hard work escrow closed. Ms. Nelson gave her best and made what we thought the impossible happen. We appreciate all her hard work.

Karen was an outstanding realtor. She went out of her way and performed tasks for me, and in place of me when I was not able to be present. Shes knowledgeable, honest, and truly drives for her clients best interests. She offers great ideas and options if something should slightly digress off-track. I couldnt be happier, and super glad that I decided to have her represent me. The best experience I've had this far.

It is nearly impossible to write a short review for Karen Nelson and adequately express the level of professionalism and expertise she brought to our condo purchase in Mammoth Lakes, CA. Not only did she patiently and willingly spend many hours over several months showing us properties around town, she listened to our wish list and honestly injected reality when we needed to be set straight. She helped direct us to qualified properties and understand the local market, using her 30+ years of experience in Mammoth. Because of her many years here, she knew most of the selling agents, so was able to get us quick, helpful answers during our search. During difficult negotiations over our chosen property, she held the line for us with the sellers' agent. Once we were in escrow, she didn't slack off, either. There were very challenging questions about the HOA and inspection items and she did not shy away from asking tough questions, even though the sale (and her commission) were at stake. She made sure we were thoroughly informed on every issue, especially the serious ones that could have cost her a sale. Possibly as a result of her leadership roles over many years on regional and CA state real estate boards, she is the most ethical agent we have ever used in 20+ years of buying and selling real estate all over the United States. After we closed, she has continued to give us benefit of her knowledge of the area through honest advice and guidance. I would not hesitate to use her again... although because of her we were able to purchase our absolute dream property-- so we don't plan on selling any time soon! If you are looking for an ethical agent who will guide you with honesty, expertise and professionalism before during and after the sale, Karen is the only choice.
