 first became acquainted with Karen at an open-house in my townhouse complex. The home was decorated very attractively and I learned that Karen had helped the owners to “stage” it. When I was ready to sell I sought her help in staging my townhouse too. Although it was already clean and attractive, it was in need of a little “tweaking”. Karen’s keen eye for detail and innate sense of style led her to re-arrange a few pieces of furniture and add some colourful accessories. She increased the visual appeal of my home and it sold within days of the open-house. I was very pleased with her service and recommend her as the real estate agent who “sets the stage” for a sale!

Karen is the ideal realtor - knowlegable, ethical, thorough, but not 'pushy'. She is always available and responsive and can provide useful and practical advice. I never thought house-buying could be a stress-free and pleasant experience, but it was! I'm really glad I did it!

We thought we would take our time looking for our new home, but rather unexpectedly we stumbled across the house or our dreams. Because we knew we had to have it, we couldn't take the risk of making the offer subject to sale. So we took the leap and bought the place. It meant we needed to sell our townhouse in Port Moody immediately. Karen had sold us into our present home and she convinced us she could help us to turn it over. We gave her our trust and followed her every direction to ensure a quick sale. We were thrilled with the results. Karen's plan was perfect and at the end of the very first open house we had three competing offers on the table. Our townhouse sold for well over the asking price. It was Karen's energy and enthusiasm, her keen sense of style, her exceptional sales abilities combined with her marketing skills that made it all possible.
We can't tell you how so very grateful we are for all you did to sell our place so quickly.
Best to you,

Michael and Tamar – Point Grey, BC

We had incredible service – warm and sincere. It made the entire process of purchasing a home very easy. We had very personal service – we never had to wait for viewings, they were constant. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Karen again and highly recommend her as a fabulous agent.

I feel that you are one of the best realtors that I have ever used. You listen to what the customer wants and not what you think they should have. You give really good advice and you definitely know what you are doing. I like that you take the time and effort to find what a customer is looking for and you go out of the way to do it and to show them the places. I will definitely recommend you to other people and when I do eventually sell again I will be calling you.

Karen was extremely personable and keen on getting us into a home that met our exact needs. She was great as a confidant in the sometimes daunting task of navigating the real estate market. I wouldn’t hesitate in wholeheartedly recommending her in a flash!

Shamus & Jessica - Port Moody, BC

It was a pleasure working with you, Karen. You made everything seem not so scary for us during our experience as first time home buyers. Thanks for all your patience and understanding.

The Dobers – Port Coquitlam, BC

Hello,
We have been meaning to send you an e-mail expressing our gratitude for the extraordinary service we received from you on both the sale of our existing home as well as the purchase of our new home. As you know we have recommended you to our friends and family, in fact our son may be calling you in the near future to help him buy a Condo.

We had a good feeling about you from the time we first met. Our instincts turned out to be correct because we got top dollar for our house, thanks to your suggestions and hard work. Most importantly you helped us find the house of our dreams using your top notch negotiating skills.

Thanks Karen,

Myrna A. - North Vancouver, BC North Vancouver

“Thank you Karen, for making finding our home possible, thanks to your hard work and despite my very specific demands and a competitive “hot market”. We are settled in nicely and thankful for the new home”

Mike & Melissa - Maple Ridge, BC

We met Karen Weiner while passing through Port Moody, one day, checking out the area. We were considering selling our home in New Westminster and moving into a townhouse. Karen was very friendly and pulled out a map to show us where everything in Port Moody was located. Karen stayed in touch with us by email with information about properties that she thought might be a good fit for us.
When Karen offered to come and do a free evaluation of our home, we accepted. We decided to list our home and Karen was full of suggestions and assistance to help us increase our curb appeal. She even hired a professional photographer to come and take photos of our house, inside and out, for the web and the information packets.

Our Open Houses fell on the Canada Day long weekend, but that did not deter Karen. She enlisted another realtor to give up their long weekend and they spent Saturday and Sunday graciously showing about fifty potential buyers through our home. On Sunday night, we received nine separate offers for our home. Every offer was above the listing price! We sold our home for substantially more than our asking price!

Once the house was sold, Karen was out and about with us finding a new home. She kept us up-to-date on all the new listings and changes to any properties we had shown interest in.
It was a very hot summer to be driving around all day, with a six month old baby in tow, but Karen was wonderful, very optimistic and positive.

Our search began with townhouses in Port Moody and moved from there through Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge. Along the way our focus changed to single detached houses. There were offers written, inspections done -lots of work. Karen was never impatient. She understood what a huge decision this was for us.
We finally choose a beautiful home in a lovely neighbourhood in Maple Ridge. Karen was great. When the former owners didn't move out on time, she was there to deal with it. When we discovered the terms of the contract had not been met, Karen took care of it.

We are thrilled with our new home and neighbourhood! The service we received from Karen Weiner was amazing and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. In fact, we have already distributed her cards to friends and acquaintances. If you are looking for a professional realtor with integrity; someone who will work hard for you while still managing to have a great sense of humour, Karen Weiner is definitely the right person for the job.

Andy & Yvonne – Burnaby, BC

Before we moved from Ontario, we were concerned about living costs in BC. When we mentioned this to Karen, she sent us some BC newspapers ads for houses, furniture and groceries. My husband left for BC alone first, and Karen assisted in finding him a temporary rental basement apartment. I stayed in Ontario to sell our house, and get our mortgage transferred to BC. Karen quickly compiled a list of properties in our price range and the area we were interested in, and my husband was able to find a suitable property within a few weeks. We were able to arrange the sale of the Ontario house and the purchase of the Burnaby house simultaneously, and avoid renting between houses. Karen then assisted with the purchase and transfer arrangements, and we are now happily living in our new home.

Karen's assistance throughout the process made the move across the country a lot easier than it could have been. We really appreciate the extra effort she made to meet our needs, and the way that she quickly understood what kind of home we were looking for.
