Karen helped me with buying and then after 2 years (due to a relocation) selling my house.
There can be no better agent than her. Throughout the process she went above and beyond to consult and support in the preparations to get the house listed (even with organizing contractors). She was very understanding of my situation, totally accommodating, knowledgeable and foremost extremely patient. She was God-sent and if I should ever move back to Michigan, Karen would be my person!!! Thanks so so much!
When I started to sell my house, I was very frustrated with my first agent. I am so glad that I made a right decision to switch to Karen. She was experienced, knowledgeable, responsive and good at addressing my concerns right away. Working with her was such a pleasant experience and she helped us sell the house in a hard market condition. The whole transaction went very smoothly. A few suggestions we took from her turned out working very well. She is an all star agent and I will definitely recommend her to all the friends/family who want to sell/buy the house in Novi/Walled Lake/South Lyon/Commerce/West Bloomfield, etc.
Karen exceeded our expectations in every area. After assessing our home she gave great staging suggestions. She got a lot of traffic into the house in a short amount of time. For every problem we had she had a solution and if it was something that required outside help she had a contact who could solve it. Her experience and knowledge in real estate gave us confidence throughout the process and ultimately produced great results.
Karen was great to work with. We would absolutely use her again and we would recommend her to all our friends and family.
Karen was a pro and was able to help me to identify the things I needed to do that I didn't know I needed to do!
She was a wealth of good information and insights.
She made what was a potentially hard process having moved out of state a very straightforward one.
Karen got us an offer for our asking price in 6 days! What more could I say? She was very professional, available, approachable and easy to work with. We would definitely hire her again and strongly recommend her!
Karen helped us buy our first home and nine years later we called her to sell our home. Both experiences were as smooth and professional as we could have ever hoped for.
Karen was great to work with and I would highly recommend her for selling a home or buying. First, her initial presentation was detailed and thought out. She even provided suggestions that would benefit myself if they did not benefit her directly. It was very obvious that she had familiarity with the lake neighborhoods in West Bloomfield and the nuances of each one. Her assessment was spot on when we listed the home given the traffic and my house had offers in days. She was very responsive to texts, phone calls and emails immediately. Her negotiations skills were apparent as we had some back and forth with the buyer which resulted in a win-win situation. Considering I was moving out of state, the process and professionalism was amazing making my move as smooth as possible. I would highly recommend anyone consider Karen!
Karen was extremely knowledgable, professional and helpful from start to finish! She is very thorough and continuously communicated with us throughout the process of selling our home. I knew with Karen as my agent, I would not have to think of all the details, she covered everything!! Karen is very patient and I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling their home.
Working with Karen was a pleasure. My parents recently passed away and it was a difficult time for my sister and I. Karen helped turn a bittersweet day into a very pleasant day. Closing went very smoothly.
We were so grateful to have Karen on our side during the sale of our home. She is an experienced realtor who has extensive knowledge of the volatile Michigan real estate market. From a professionally produced video of our home which featured drone footage to providing information to us during the appraisal process, Karen was outstanding! She is highly responsive and will stop by in person as needed. As a person who relocates often, I would recommend Karen without hesitation.
Karen Thomas is a creative genius when it comes to marketing residential real estate. She thinks "outside the box" on each property that she lists. Karen is a gifted, talented, and resourceful real estate professional. Savvy, clever, and cunning are words to describe her negotiation techniques and skills. Karen uses many innovative and new tools to do her job and to help her clients. Karen Thomas and Coldwell Banker Weir Manuel are an awesome combination. When it comes to interviewing real estate agents, put Karen Thomas on your list. You will be glad you did.
We called Karen after we tried FSBO and the deal fell through. She recommended a much higher sales price, made suggestions on how to better present the property, prepared a creative and compelling listing, guided us through the process of reviewing offers and was very responsive. We received three offers within a week of the listing. This was our third transaction with Karen over a period of 13 years. She continued to impress us, and we would highly recommend her.
Throughout the entire process, we were delighted with the service provided by Karen Thomas. From the very beginning, it was evident Karen was knowledgeable about the market and well-connected to the community. She made excellent recommendations on how to best present the house to potential buyers. She diligently walked us through the process, patiently and completely answering all questions and addressing all concerns. Karen's communication was flawless; her follow-up was outstanding. Without reservation, we would recommend Karen Thomas. In fact, we have already referred our friends to her.
Karen exceeded my expectations as a real estate professional when I decided to list my condo with her. Her description of my home was so well written it prompted 20 plus showings over the next 3 days from when it was published! I valued her expertise when it came to accepting the offer, and she communicated each step of the way right through the closing process.
She is professional, cordial, knowledgeable, responsive and was a pleasure to do business with!
I highly recommend Karen for anyone looking to buy/sell in the Lakes area. She is a pro's pro!!!!!!!!!!!!
We interviewed others when we were putting our house on the market but Karen came prepared with more statistics and demographics of the homes in our area. She was a true professional through and through! Anytime that I would text or call her, she would respond quickly and if she didn't have the answer, she would find out without delay. This was our 7th move and Karen was the best real estate professional that we have experienced. We would recommend Karen to anyone thinking of buying or selling a home.
Karen is an experienced, ethical and hardworking realtor. When selling my home she showcased it beautifully with professional photography and outstanding marketing.
She kept me updated every step of the way and was very respectful
of my schedule when showing my home.
I'm sure my home sold quickly due to her outstanding work and I was delighted with the price I received.
Her warm personality made it a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend her.
When my husband and I were looking to sell our house in 2016 I took it upon myself to look over reviews of the real estate companies in the area. After narrowing down to two companies I reviewed the agents for each company. I was looking for someone who was detail oriented, who was motivated, and would be up front and honest with all of the particulars of selling a house in the present market. You see, although I am a registered nurse who spent years working in the ICU I sold my house in Lansing years ago, by myself, in one weekend for asking price while adhering to the basic principles of selling real estate. Karen showed that she was proficient in all of the principles of practicing as a great agent: she kept her appointments, was on time, was kind and respectful, approachable, open to new ideas, and provided expert advice for preparing our house (in addition to providing great tips on furniture arrangement) while encouraging us to expedite the process of putting our house on the market at the most favorable time for a seller. For these reasons and many more I would highly recommend Karen Thomas for his/her real estate agent. Thank you, Michelle Risley-O'Dell
I worked with Karen on a very difficult to sell home. I had the house previously on the market with another agent and we seemed to always be going around in circles, no clear path. With Karen it was a different story. Our first approach was to prep the home for sale buy focusing on those items that mattered, then we spent time researching the ideal listing but always with an eye on the bottom line. Well, it did take time but we worked with several potential buyers and she managed them well and in the end we sold the home for more than the bottom line. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose Karen. As a matter of fact she is our listing agent on a rental and will be the one who sells it when I am ready.
We would have never found/bought our home if it wasn't for Karen Thomas! After showing us multiple homes, she knew what we wanted and what we did not and during her standard protocol of checking out upcoming listings, she found our home! If she had not done the due diligence of looking at listings before they go public, we would have surely lost out to another buyer as the homes in our area go pretty quick!
Karen helped us find and purchase a wonderful lake house for weekend getaways. She has a great knowledge of the area and gave us honest and transparent advice about the various lakefront communities and which ones would fit our plan. Karen helped us with every step of the process, including the search, comparable, offer, inspection, financing and insurance. Karen has a great network of contacts. Most important, she listened to what we wanted and helped us make it happen. We strongly recommend Karen to prospective buyers and sellers.
Karen is excellent for all your real estate needs! She is so professional and will listen to you and find homes that meet your needs/wants. She has helped us sell 2 homes and purchase 2 homes, but wish I could bring her out to Arizona to help us here. She is delightful to work with and trustworthy. You will love working with Karen!!
Karen is an excellent realtor, very knowledgeable and well prepared. She sold our home very quickly and helped us find the kind of home we were looking for. She helped us at every stage: inspections, mortgage, appraisal, etc. I give her my highest recommendation (and I am a very critical person).
Karen helped us decide to rent our home, find our tenant and write up our rental agreement. It worked out great. She also helped us find our new home - a foreclosure. Karen was very helpful and knowledgeable dealing with the headaches that a foreclosure can present. She is great to work with and would highly recommend.
In 2016, we contracted with Karen to sell our home. Within 2 weeks, we had a buyer. Before listing, she goes over everything from market analysis, listing, open house, to closing. KAREN IS 100% INVOLVED THE ENTIRE TIME. Whenever we had any questions, she would answer them promptly. Karen guided us through what to expect every step of the way and also reviewed our closing papers with us before the closing, and also attended the closing. We highly recommend Karen to sell your home.
This was my first time buying a home on my own. Karen was very helpful and explains process of buying a home. She was always available to answer questions. I had a great experience w Karen and highly recommend her.
We think it is rare to find a realtor like Karen who truly puts 100% effort into marketing a property. Karen performed a comprehensive market analysis, made suggestions to maximize the appeal of the house, hired a professional photographer for interior as well as exterior pictures including drone video and made herself available at all hours for consultation.
Karen kept us informed of the results of all showings and attended open houses. Her knowledge of the area was certainly an advantage.
We are now located outside of Michigan but would not hesitate to call Karen first if we needed a realtor within the state.
Karen was absolutely fantastic to work with. She helped us buy (and then sell!) our first home. As a buyer, we always felt like we were her only clients, though we know that was not the case! She was always available to reach by phone/text and quick to set up showings of potential properties. As a seller, Karen helped by providing great feedback for staging and tweaking based on feedback from showings. Throughout both processes, her knowledge and communication are what really provided us with exceptional experiences. Should we be in the market in her area again we would absolutely use Karen and have recommended her to several friends!
Karen Thomas is an absolute gem as a realtor. She is extremely professional, knowledgable, honest and committed to taking the time necessary to finding the home that is right for you. Karen quickly sold our home for asking price by marketing it perfectly-professional photographer and staging, research and knowledge of the Novi area. Karen's fantastic interpersonal skills are a tremendous asset for negotiating with other realtors and making her clients feel cared for. She seeks to understand needs, actively listens to her clients and helps educate them through the process as needed. Karen communicates and responds promptly, day and night, which puts clients at ease. Karen's experience and knowledge of the market is exactly what you want when you are buying or selling your home. We are so thankful we had Karen by our side throughout the entire process! She is absolutely outstanding, professionally and personally! Highly recommended!!
Karen pays attention to details and that has really helped us look at the right home. Karen goes above and beyond to look out for us. I highly recommend Karen. I have personally not met a better real estate professional.
Karen was open, honest, helpful & very sharp. Nothing got past her.
We will utilize her talent & expertise when we have further need of a realtor. We have recommended her services.
I was first impressed by Karen Thomas's professionalism. In our initial meeting she presented us with suggestions and 'tips' on staging and selling our house that were very useful. We followed all her suggestions on home preparations, improvement and were very pleased with the results.
Karen worked hard at selling our home offering Open Houses as needed. She seemed to be always available to answer our questions.
I must also add that she was great fun to work with.
Our house sold in a timely manner, for a price we were happy with, and our closing was seamless.
It can't get better than that.
I have used Karen both for buying and selling my home. I referred her to friends and my son and both times she provided excellent service. Her advice and demeanor are quite professional and she knows her business and my area very well. I have maintained a personal relationship with year for years after selling and buying our home.
Karen helped me buy a house in Canton, MI. She is very upfront and will tell you the truth even if that means you might not end up buying the property. I'm impressed with her honest feedback, case and point I wanted to sell my condo recently which was investment property and she explained downside of selling espescially at that location. She could have easily sold and made money. I would highly recommend Karen as your realtor.
I was referred to Karen and she made the whole experience go very smoothly. Communication and follow-up was great. She had good suggestions on preparing for the sale, priced it well, and most of all took all of the worries away. Super smooth transaction and great experience; I would highly recommend to anyone!
