I was extremely happy with the support I received from Kara both selling and buying real estate in the Chelan community. As a Chelan native she understands the market and was very responsive to all my needs. I appreciated her insight, candid dialogue, professionalism and wonderful sense of humor.  I would not hesitate to recommend Kara to those interested in buying or selling in the Chelan community.



Having worked in the real estate industry for nearly 3 decades, I was incredibly impressed with Kara's professionalism and follow up. She was extremely easy to work with and delivered on everything discussed with a confidence that confirmed we made the right choice in working with her. We  can't thank her enough for everything she did in helping us sell two properties in the Lake Chelan market.


Our experience with Kara was so great! She is so kind and the type of person that immediately makes you feel at ease. She is extremely knowledgeable of the area and a great representative for the Chelan Valley. She understood our perspective and did her homework with clear communication. Our entire  experience of selling our property was extremely positive, very timely, fair and smooth. Without reservation we recommend Kara.



Kara has sold three properties for our extended family within the last several years while other local agents were unable to move them. She is very proactive while others seemed to be the "wait and see if I can just snag something that comes along" type. She recently marketed and sold our 115  year old family home in Chelan, WA which was in very poor shape but located on prime lakefront. Lots of clean up and marketing was required which we as non resident owners couldn't provide. Kara did! Over the years, she has become a personal friend, enforced by too many Emails to enumerate. I would without reservation recommend her for anyone's local real estate needs.
