This lady is a real life saver and I would dare to call her an angel. We needed to short sell before we went into foreclosure and Karen listed our home. The bank ended up not allowing the sale and bought the property at 100k over our 2 best offers. Here it is 2017 and I am trying to buy a home and if it were not for Karen keeping our information the underwriters would not consider us

Karen went above and beyond her duties to help me. This was all a new experience for me and she explained everything to me and helped me to understand the different processes. She is very thorough and honest. This is the lady to go to. Best realtor ever!

This was my first time buying a house and I'm glad I worked with Karen. She was efficient at every step, friendly and flexible with her schedule, and always had precise and quick answers to my questions. Karen went above and beyond, taking the time to educate me on many details of the process and the market that I didn't know about. She was always ready for the next move, but also knew when to step back and give me some time to think about what I wanted to do. Thank you Karen! You're great!

Karen is the Realtor who truly cares about her clients and their happiness! Whether you are a buyer or seller, Karen has your best interests as top priority. She is dedicated to her job and goes above and beyond! She has a heart of gold, and truly feels like a friend instead of a Realtor, she is comforting throughout a process that can be intimidating to buyers/sellers, but with Karen as your agent, she is knowledgeable and professional and is there by your side through it all! I highly recomme

Ok where do I start! My husband and I have been on the house hunt for 2 LONG LONG YEARS! We had worked with other realtors but after a dry spell we were on our own. We came across Karen Cook cause she was the listing agent for a home we were really interested in Atwater. Karen was very honest from the start and said since she was the listing agent and now our new agent, doesn't mean we would get the house. She was right lol we didn't get that house hahaha she did what was best for her selle

I highly recommend Karen Cook if you are looking to purchase your forever home. When we would view homes it was like she became part of the family looking and talking about likes and dislikes. She is very knowledgeable about the homes she shows. Most importantly she never pressured us into anything and is easy to work with.

This is the second property Karen has aggressively negotiated for me in a short amount of time and has brought purchase pricing way below asking price. She has a strong professional team assisting her in providing exceptional service to her customers and keeping them well informed at every step of the complicated process. When I decide to sell she will be the one I will ask for . She is very helpful long after you have closed the sale

Karen worked as a dual agent for my purchase of a condo in SF. During and even after the transaction, Karen was extremely professional and provided tremendous help to successfully close the sale. Karen was able to work so well with the buyer (me), the seller, and even the tenants to make sure everyone was getting a fair share of the deal. I highly recommend Karen for any real estate transaction. I will use her again when it's time for me to buy again. Thanks Karen!

Karen did an exceptional job in helping us sell our condo. Her communication skills are top par and was always quick to provide responses to any inquires. Very professional, hard working, diligent every step of the way. Four stars for local knowledge because it was her first time selling in San Francisco and naturally all the local knowledge was not yet developed. However, Karen picked up on everything quickly. She learned all about the local market by networking and was able to get up to s

Karen Cook has helped us both purchase a home and sell a home. She made the process a breeze both times. She is on top of every detail, deadline, and inevitable problems that arise. She makes sure the other agent is getting things done on time as well. In the last 15 years we have used 5 different agents, Karen is hands down the very best. She is professional, personable, knowledgeable, and goes above and beyond to make every aspect of the transaction go smoothly. We cannot recommend her highly
by Barbara on 8/12/2015
Karen did a wonderful job helping us sell our home. She was great at getting our house listed in so many places that we had about 15 people at our first open house and more at the second open house . It sold quickly after second open house. 18 days on market. She was so good to keep us informed as we then moved to closing time. Everything worked out great but she was very busy behind the scene contacting loan office, other relators, etc..She has become our friend.

Ethical, caring, hardworking, energetic, detailed, flexible, resourceful, professional agent! Karen and I went to high school together, so I knew her on a personal level before we started working on selling my house and buying a new one. But I have learned what a treasure she is as a real estate agent. She combines her knowledge, experience, and expertise with a can-do attitude. HIGHLY recommend!

Karen is a blessing. I had met her through my mom, but didn't really get to know her until I was selling my mom's home. She is detail-oriented, thorough, and persistent to ensure that everything is done correctly and efficiently. She goes beyond what I have ever experienced in a real estate agent. As a seller I totally trusted her and she didn't let me down. Rather, I felt like I gained a friend. She is so open, personable, kind, confident, and looks out for your best interest, but isn't pushy. I was able to make every decision after I was presented with my options. I wouldn't hesitate to call on her again. Thank you, Karen!!!

She is knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy, reliable, and an overall genuine human being!

by Lola Hill on 8/26/2019
I would not hesitate to recommend Karen to anyone selling or buying a home in my area. She makes you feel like you are her only client and always goes the extra mile to step you through each process. We successfully sold our home in one week and she has been by our side as we transition to a new home in a new state. She is one of the exceptional experienced realtors I was fortunate to have found and I will stay in touch.
by Eileen McGarry on 6/14/2019
was a first-time home buyer and Karen was great! She walked me through the entire process and answered all of my questions. She was more than willing to call my loan officer and escrow company to check on things and made sure my experience went smoothly. She was always available via call, text, and email. I would definitely use her services again!
