What do Clients Say?

Karen implemented a great marketing strategy by "leaving no stone unturned" in presenting our property to a variety of potential buyers and in "getting the word out" in the community. Karen is extremely well-organized and tenacious. ­She has always been confident and positive, even when we were discouraged. We are impressed with Karen's multiple skills and with her ability to keep on top of all the paperwork and deadlines, and her affinity for details in marketing, presenting the offer, and closing the sale.­She was regularly in contact with us and kept us properly updated on showings and results. We would enthusiastically recommend Karen Mathison to any prospective buyer or seller. - Dr. James and Susan Turner

Karen worked tirelessly on our behalf to ensure that our home sold in a timely manner. ­Karen's many recommendations were invaluable to us for staging, marketing, and pricing our home.­ Karen's business practices and professionalism were of highest quality, and we trusted her advice and guidance. Because we moved out of state we were unable to be present at the closing, Karen efficiently handled everything on our behalf.­ At all times Karen appeared to thoroughly enjoy her work and we very much enjoyed working with her!­We would highly recommend Karen Mathison to anyone purchasing or selling a home. - Roger and Donna Lang

e have been through the sale and purchase process multiple times and can honestly ­say Karen truly exceeded our expectations. The time she put in marketing our home from­hosting open houses and creating newspaper ads to making phone calls to those in search of a home who might be interested in ours and advising/updating us was so much­more than what we expected. Karen never once gave us the feeling that she was too busy for us­or that we weren't ­as important as the $1,000,000 house she was selling across town. She was happy to answer our questions, provide research, and guide us along the way. We built a friendship, too, which was icing on the cake! ­­ - Ryan and Joy Greiner

Karen is an incredibly resourceful realtor. She continually goes the extra mile to market homes - bringing in a professional photographer, identifying potential buyers and smoothing the way to a successful transaction. When it came to selling our one-of-a-kind home, she was a true partner in the process. - Tim White and Michelle LeCompte

Holy cow! Can you believe it finally happened! You have­ to be­the most patient women in the world dealing with Chase's and my schedules! Because of you, we have the house­­of our dreams! You knew us so darn well and found us the absolute perfect home! There won't be a week that goes by where I won't thank you from afar! We are blessed and­extremely­thankful for how you­guided us through the process­and will recommend you to everyone we see. From the very bottom of our hearts - thank you! - Emily and Chase Moser
