I have lived in the Triangle for 20 years, originally from CT! The weather and quality of life here is amazing to say the least! The people are just as amazing! My husband and I have three teenagers-need I say more! I'm very familiar with the Raleigh Durham area and would love to help sell your home and/or find that perfect home for you. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    My Client Testimonials

    First, we've casually looked for two years prior to working with a realtor in this area, and previously built a completely custom home in another city. Having said that, our wish list was long, specific, and we had yet to find anything that truly checked all the boxes. Upon meeting Kara, she patiently learned about the (long) wishlist, and after visiting just a few houses, taking our feedback on them and refining, we found one that checked all the major boxes. This wasn't because it was easy, it was because Kara was on top of it.... We visited the house the day it went on the market, and had we not, we likely would have missed it! She worked with us through a multiple offer situations, and was patient with our negotiation requests. Kara handled our family (traveling spouses, sick kids, kids needing attention while mom was reviewing every detail in the house, and a picky/demanding wife) pleasantly. She was responsive, prompt, kind, and patient. I never once felt like I was being pushed into buying too quickly (which is not the case with all people in sales). She supported us through and after closing. She was wonderful for us, and we'd recommend! Erica and Matt
    We had a great experience working with Kara. She did an outstanding job showing us homes in the Cary and Morrisville areas and provided an exceptional level of customer service. I look forward to working with her again. Anna and Art
    Kara was wonderful to work with. We were moving from out of state, but she was very accommodating in finding exactly what we were looking for and being open and honest about properties. She was punctual, and always quick to reply when we had a question about a property. During the process we never felt like we were being put on the back burner, and she even made that extra step for us in finding a home. Without a doubt I would work with Kara again. Chris and Chana
    Kara is very thorough and very quick with responses. She is a lovely person and very knowledgeable about the area. She will answer any questions you may have. Amanda and Aubin
    Dear Kara, Thank you again for helping us sell our home so quickly. We appreciate the time you spent on it knowing that it was not going to be a normal sale. We were worried about having to sell from so far away but you made it easy on us. We are considering moving to Raleigh in the next few years and we'd be happy to use your services again. Best, Xitij and April
    From Amanda Weinraub- via Facebook: Kara O'Shea is an absolutely fabulous realtor. She is always on top of everything, on time, an excellent negotiator, patient, excellent communication and knows the area well. I highly recommend her--she stands out among many realtors in the area. Chana Cohen: I second Kara O'Shea! She was wonderful to work with. Hilary Kipp: I couldn't agree more! We have worked with her twice now and she has been amazing!
    Words can't honestly describe how wonderful Kara is!!! She jumped right on in helping us find somewhere to rent! She completely relieved us from so much stress. Not only did she help us but our friends. Both families are leaving Savannah Ga. and moving to NC and she was able to get us a place a cross the street from each other!!! So our two families who know no one. Will have each other close by! Jessica and Stephen Morgan
    From Abigail and Ken Cail: Kara was extremely helpful in finding us the perfect home! She was more than accommodating and very friendly. She made this whole process easy. We highly recommend her!
