CLIENT REVIEWS:

Feel free to request to speak with any of our clients directly! There are many things we can say about the high level of service we provide to our home seller, buyer and investor clients, but none would be as credible as reviews from our clients themselves. So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. We hope they indicate our experience and integrity, as well as make it clear how much we enjoy helping people with their real estate needs.


J.R. Reitman
Buying a house was one of my two major fears in life. After having Karen as our realtor, I am not sure what I was afraid of. She is great!!! Karen is informed and up to date on everything!!! She helped us to have a STRESS free first time home buying experience. I would recommend her to anyone, especially first time home buyers.


Deputy T.W. Lindemeyer
I have looked for houses a few times in the past with other agents but I just wasn't happy with what I was looking at. I was referred to Karen through a good friend. I must say she KNOWS her stuff, takes a lot of time to talk to you about YOUR WANTS, NEEDS AND DESIRES and will make sure she finds it for you. I thought this was going to be a very long, hard and stressful process. I bought my first home back in January, and I would have never believed it was that easy and stress free for me, but thats only because Karen worked so hard for me. I got everything I wanted in a home, and I gained a lifelong friend and a Real Estate agent.  


James & Maryann Woods 
We tried to sell our house FSBO and then Karen rescued us and took care of everything from there. Her marketing skills are excellent as are her people skills. She worked hard to market our home and once sold was very efficient in walking us through all the details and paperwork. She knows her business and thoroughly explains and handles everything to the last detail. I would highly recommend Karen as a professional and would look no further if we choose to move again.    


Elaine Pyszkowski
I found Karen Parr to be a very efficient and knowledgeable Realtor. She always returned my calls immediately and obtained the information I needed to help me make the right decision when I recently purchased a condo in Virginia Beach. Karen stayed in touch with me even after the closing to be sure everything was alright. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!  


Karen & Alan Hosack
After patiently searching for 2 years for our "dream home with a water view", we finally found the right home at the right price. This was a difficult and emotional transaction as the sellers were unfortunately in a divorce situation. Karen walked into what appeared to be a lost cause and brought clarity and order to chaos. Within 30 days, she sold our home and closed the deal on our new purchase! We were so thankful for her expertise and attention to so very many details. We are living in and remodeling or retirement home now. We highly recommend Karen to help you find or sell your new home. She has become a family friend and we have used her services twice in the past 7 years. We will continue to use her for any real estate needs our family and children may have. 


Leigh Thomas (sold estate locally for seller in Florida)
Thank you Karen, for making this sale as quick and painless as possilbe! Start to finish, the sale was completed in 60 days, much quicker than I originally anticipated in this market. Karen coordinated all of the details from security to minor repairs for this out of town seller. She has good connections, good instincts and gives good advice! I felt like I was in good hands all the way through and highly recommend her for the sale of your home! 


Jim & Betsi Hill
Working with Karen was such a pleasure for us! She was patient, professional and very knowledgeable about the real estate market in Virginia Beach. We would highly recommend Karen to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home in the Tidewater area. This was our second home purchase and Karen made the entire process easy and relaxing and pleasurable. Without a doubt we will certainly use Karen again when we purchase or sell another home. Thanks for doing such an outstanding job for us! You are the BEST! 


Bill and Felicia McManama
'Detail oriented, dedicated, very personable, gracious and giving' Those are only a few of the experiences you'll have working with Karen on a sale or a purchase of a home. Feel free to ask her about our home buying experience. We were being taken through the ringer when we were purchasing our home. Karen kept us up to date, fought for items that we should have in our contract and really made us feel like we were special. She won't back down from something you need or she will guide you in a direction that is best for you. Trust us, take her advice. She makes it her job to know what you are looking for. Very pleased clients and friends!


Jennifer Balonek
It is clear when working with Karen that her ultimate goal was to get us the best possible return on our investment. It is refreshing to work with someone whose job satisfaction comes directly from helping her clients meet their goals. She has become a great friend.


Cindy & David Appel
The experience could not have been better!!! OK - Karen did suggest we spend a little more than we had planned in the budget but it was well worth it! Houses around us were on the market for over six months, yet ours sold in less than a week and closed within a month. The same ones around us were still on the market after we closed. We really felt like Karen looked out for our best interest. Her expert advice kept us from making costly mistakes!!!

Thank you so much for helping me to sell my house in 2 days and for making my home buying experience easy. I will not let any of my friends make a single real estate move without you.
