I realize that buying or selling a home is a big decision and can be stressful, as I remember being in that position. I had a great agent that took me through the process step by step and took care of everything and made me feel at ease. I realize how important that is to have and want to provide that same level of service. I enjoy working with people and knowing that I took part in helping someone achieve one of their biggest goals or dreams, is very rewarding. I enjoy interior design, architecture and have extensive experience in customer service. If you are looking for honesty, integrity and dedication in an agent, then contact me and we will work together to achieve your goals!

 Kari was very helpful every step of the way. She is very knowledgeable in real estate, and at closing the seller's agent even said that our offer was chosen in part because of the quality of Kari's work in preparing the offer/purchase agreement documents. Kari was always kind and professional. She was always easy to get a hold of whenever we had questions.  - Tisha Pantaleo

 Kari was awesome! She was so accommodating to our schedules. She kept us informed through the entire process. Answered every question and returned every phone call promptly. She was always pleasant, and we really felt she cared. We will recommend her to everyone. I cant say enough about how much she helped us. She really was awesome.  - Sandy Rock, South St Paul

 She is a great realtor; she's always there and never late. She responds to our questions really quickly and also she checks houses right away.

 Kari was extremely helpful and went out of her way to work with our schedules and help us find our home. She is very professional and I enjoyed the tedious experience of searching for the perfect home because of her help.  - Theresa Schmidtman

 Kari reached out to me at just the right time to see if I was ready to buy a house. She had noticed I had been looking online a lot, but had not taken any action. When I told her I didn't know about getting pre-approved, she provided me with a name and assured me it should be easy enough. Once that was taken care of, we started looking at houses. Kari was very mindful of my family needs and the types of areas and houses that would work for me. She was also patient as I processed what could work and what couldn't. Kari helped me feel like I could really get a house and a good one  She offered excellent customer service, and her knowledge of what to look for in the physical structure of the house was very helpful as well. Kari went above and beyond to ensure all the  fixes  were completed well - even to the point of meeting with the seller on her own prior to closing. From beginning to end, Kari offered excellent service.  - Buyer

 Kari did a wonderful job of showing us many budget houses even in terrible weather. We really appreciated her flexibility so we could see houses when we were in town.  - Ben (buyers Pete & Maryjo) Vandenwymelenberg

Because of her we have the house of our dreams and we are happy and proud of it.  - Luis Moncada

 We loved Kari. She did a wonderful job and went above and beyond our expectations. We thought we would never get into a house, but Kari was right there helping us search for homes. She also did it in a way where we felt she cared as much as we did about finding a home.-Buyer

 Kari was great   - Buyer

 I thought Kari was excellent and I appreciated her help  Thank you   Jamie  - Buyer

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.



"Kari sold our townhome for over asking in just a couple days. Then she helped us find and negotiate our dream home. We are thrilled after working with Kari. She was patient as we looked at many homes. She kept everything organized and in constant communication with both the sale and purchase sides and all the people and companies that are involved from start to finish. We never plan to move again but if we did we would call on Kari for the job. We highly recommend you do as well. -Amanda Source: realtor.com"

"I’ve worked with Kari on three different buying and selling transactions and she has never disappointed me. She is prompt and follows up on every last detail to ensure a successful closing. She had helpful recommendations for inspection and movers. I especially appreciate the level of timely responsiveness. She will be the first person I call if I ever buy or sell another house."

  -Joanne S, Client

"This is my 3rd time working with Kari. The first 2 times were home purchases. This time was a sale. she got an offer for $1000 over listing in a very short time which shows she knows how to value your home and list at the best price to sell. She is so professional and caring. She always answers her phone and text messages or emails promptly. She answers all questions in a timely manner. She kept in contact with the buyer's agent to be sure all was going smoothly for a great closing. I will always recommend Kari to my friends and family."
