Karen Wright has many years of experience in the Real Estate industry. She has a unique ability to remember details from each home she visits. Her ideas and vision for her clients have helped get houses ready for listing and helped buyers see past any minor drawbacks of a home. Karen helps them see the potential in a property. “There is no such thing as a perfect home,” Karen says. “Even after a homeowner builds their dream home, they discover details they wished they would have done differently.”
With her fun-loving, bright personality, working with people was a natural fit, and Karen loves what she does. Her service-oriented approach to real estate sets her apart in her field. She believes her job should be hands-on. “My mission is to help relieve my client’s stress as they buy and sell a home. It’s important for them to know what to expect. I focus on making the paperwork very clear and on preparing clients for any what-if’s.” Unexpected events happen frequently during the buying, selling, and moving process.
Karen says, “It’s important to me to be very up front and open with my clients and to keep them informed about what’s going on in the market.”
Another benefit to Karen’s clients is her consistent contact with lenders and title companies. “I feel that keeping in close contact with all the parties involved in a transaction makes the process go smoothly. We want to avoid any hiccups.”
“Communication is vital in real estate,” Karen says. “When I work with someone, I want to know what their goals are and to make sure we are on the same page.”
Real estate has been a challenging field lately, but changes are on the way. The inventory of available homes has gone up over 50% since last year, which is great if you’re looking for a new place to live. The number of sales has gone down, while the average sale price has gone up over 20%. We are transitioning from a seller’s market into a buyer’s market.
An expert realtor can provide valuable assistance. Hiring a trusted expert in the field is a great idea. After all, we go to our attorneys for legal questions and to our accountants for tax questions. Take your real estate questions to a skilled agent, such as Karen. “I use my experience and negotiating ability to make sure the sale is a win-win for everyone.”
