After getting a quick contract to sell my home in South Carolina, I had time for just a brief trip to find a house in Denver. Karen Gustafson helped make that happen. Her realistic approach prepared me for the challenging market buyers faced here this past summer. Karen’s organization made effective use of my time in Denver. She set up a marathon tour of houses that fit my interests. She helped filter out the hype in brokers’ listings, so we ranked them as we moved along, &, at the end of the day, had a short list for second-looks. On Day 2, we used Karen’s laptop to send an offer from the home I liked best, & had a contract the next day.
Karen’s thorough, professional approach exudes confidence of success. She’s personable, easy-going, -- and able to ramp up intensity when needed to prod responses during negotiations. Karen monitors clear, routine steps toward closing the sale, while also aware of complex stories that bring buyers and sellers to the deal. She’s quick to share her great knowledge of the Denver area & keen insights about home features. I saw a wide range of agents’ quality this summer. Considering the money, time, lifestyle, & emotion that’s at stake, anyone buying or selling a home should want to work with the best realtor available. In Denver, that’s Karen Gustafson.
