We were very impressed by Karen Grant and started working with with her right away.. she was an incredible resource in helping us to buy a lot in the exact location of our dreams in South Lake Tahoe.
As a buyer's agent, Karen not only specializes in this unique region, (she was born and raised in South Lake Tahoe and is now raising her own children there as well), but she deeply understands the many neighborhoods and pockets within and around it.
She is very reliable and knowledgeable, anytime when we had a question, she was just a phone call away, anytime. She guided us through each step and she was so on top of everything during the deal, and answered every question we had. She worked around the clock to make a quick, smooth transaction.
She answered all of our questions diligently. Her response to our questions was very frequently within the hour, which is a testament to her devotion to her clients. We appreciated that she never tried to sell us a particular lot, but instead guided us in the very fun process of choosing and buying the location of our future Forever Home.
Karen is one of the hardest working people I have ever met. I know she had many other clients but I always felt like she was prioritizing our family first. We found our dream lot fairly quickly but she never pressured us once into buying, and let my wife and I come to our own final decision. She was very helpful in helping us think about the pros and the cons and the market and the timing, etc. She always provided top advice on the neighborhoods, the owners, the selling agents, the value of the lots, and the bidding strategy. Karen always accompanied us on lot visits and responded to questions 7 days a week, any time of day/night.
Not only did she help us find a beautiful lot, but she also helped us get a great deal and close on the lot quickly. We ended up getting the best lot at the best price we possibly could have, that fit us better than other lots that cost more, on the very first offer. Our bid was actually lower than a competing bid, but we won thanks to Karen’s experience and negotiation savvy in constructing attractive offer terms. Her real estate expertise and diligent communication were really helpful in resolving the various questions and issues that came up in a quick close, and her service has been just as attentive even after the purchase. A true professional.
To this day, Karen continues to be extremely helpful, referring us to various service providers (architects, contractors, electric, plumbers, etc). She does that with a smile on her face and a light heart. We cannot think of a more capable buyer’s agent; we are researching the possibility of purchasing an investment property in our future and without a doubt we plan on working with her again.
