    Elizabeth gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara has been a godsend! We are completely new to NWA, and Kara made the transition here a breeze! She understood exactly what we needed in a home, probably even better than we did! She was always available any time we had questions and gave us so many great recommendations. Everyone she referred us to agreed she is the best of the best! Kara worked around the clock getting us everything we needed on our short timeline. I cannot imagine working with anyone else for real estate needs now! Thank you, Kara!
    Sarah gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara was great to work with! I found her through my companys relocation services and was very pleased with how prepared she came to our first meeting. I truly believed she helped me to get the best sale price I could on my house and I was overall very happy with my experience with her! Would recommend!
    Trevor gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara helped me move to and from NWA, both times tackling questions and challenges along the way with professionalism and flexibility. She was able to understand our needs quickly and actively worked to make our decision easier from 400 miles away during a busy and stressful relocation. After transferring out of NWA she's now helped us sell the same home we purchased with her a few years ago. This time with its own tight timelines, a chaotic market, and now 650 miles of distance! I really appreciate her clear, consistent communication, and willingness to go the extra mile when issues arise.
    Trevor gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara went above and beyond to help me. Being out of town, starting a new job, and a first time home buyer made things stressful, but Kara has answers for everything. I hope to work with her again in the future.
    John gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara was incredible from the start. We were relocating to the area and only had 2 days to see all that Benton County had to offer. Kara showed up ready to go with a list of homes in less than 5 days notice and made the most of our time. While looking for homes we found on across the street from a current listing and Kara had us inside the house within a matter of minutes with our offer sent to them within 48 hours of that. The other piece that I would like to mention is that she didn't just close the sale and move on. Kara continued to check in with us on what we needed, how we were adjusting, and had an extensive list of contacts to make sure we completed everything we needed (blinds lawn care, paint, etc.). I would happily work with her again!
    Jim gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara was a great help to me an my wife in our search for a home. She is knowledgeable of the local markets and spent plenty of time showing us many different homes during our search. Once we found the home we wanted, she was a great resource to us during the negotiation and inspection phases of the home buying process. This is the 4th home that we have purchased, and Kara gave us one of our best home buying experiences. I would highly recommend her.
    Heath gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    We had been looking for a house for months and after many attempts on our own at trying to schedule showings and tours with properties we finally reached out to Kara. We gave her specs we wanted in a house and she went to work. What took us months with no success Kara stepped in and found us our place and locked it down in less than a week! She will always be our agent!
    Alicia gave Kara 4 stars out of 5
    Kara did a wonderful job helping me through the home-buying process! She was very quick to respond to text messages and stayed on top of all the things that needed to be completed! I would recommend her to anyone needing to buy a home. I would say I could have used a little more background information on negotiating before beginning the process and a little more information on properties.
    Aimee gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara was amazing from the word go! We needed to relocate quickly and she did her very best to facilitate that in every way. She was always knowledgeable when it came to any questions we had, stayed in constant communication with us, and worked with us and our relocation servicer to get our house sold and the paperwork processed as soon as possible. Beyond that, she was always so friendly, kind, and willing to go out of her way to help whenever she could. My husband and I were so thankful we had a realtor we could rely on during such a big change, and we can't recommend her enough!
    Erica gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara helped us during the purchase of our first home. She was very professional, patient, and helpful answering questions during this process.
    Kaitlynn gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    We are first time homebuyers, Kara made the entire experience extremely easy. She worked late hours to get our offer in and made sure we knew exactly what we needed to be doing each day. I completely trust her, and I highly recommend her and hope to work with her again some day if we move.
    Christina gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    We were new to the area and Kara went above and beyond for us to find our first home. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
    Caleb gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    I was a first time home buyer and Kara went above and beyond to make it a great experience. I recommend all my family and friends to her and will definitely be buying my next home from her. Very knowledgeable on the area and willing to go the extra mile for you. Thank you Kara!
    Mallory gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara was the perfect realtor to help us in our relocation from TN. She was professional, responsive and happily answered all the many questions we had about the housing market, the NWA area, and even about urgent cares and good babysitters to use. She is just a great person and we had full confidence in her from the beginning to show us the best options available for us and to help us through all the details to closing. I would definitely use her again in the future and will recommend to others! I'm grateful for her.
    Kristy gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara Self helped me in selling my home and purchasing my new home. Kara was absolutely wonderful! She has her heart in what she does and gives it 100%. Not only that, but she knows the real estate business through and through. It is obvious that Kara has a passion for her job and for helping people find what makes them happy. Selling and buying a home is stressful and she was always upbeat and positive about everything. When I contacted Kara about helping me I had no idea she had a 2 day old infant, but she never missed a beat. She was amazing! I can't say enough good about Kara and her work ethic, real estate knowledge, and her passion to help people. She was very professional in everything she did. I highly recommend Kara Self and would definitely use her again. Coldwell Banker is fortunate to have Kara on their team.
    Paul gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    My wife and I were being relocated to NWA, and thankfully, we were connected with Kara Self. Kara really helped us to understand not only the real estate market in this area, but what NWA is all about. She is an expert on the best places to get pizza!! My wife and I were really picky about our new home, and Kara was really patient to help us find the home that best fits our needs. We spend many days touring homes and talking in the evening about others. She always picked up her phone or replied to a text when we reached out to her. Any issue that arose during the process like inspection findings and last minute changes, Kara was always ready to help us address them. My wife and I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone who is interested in finding a home in NWA to work with Kara Self. She really took care of us, made us feel like we were always her top priority, and found us our new home. Kara is an amazing real estate agent, and because of her commitment and passion, she is now a part of our family.
    Jessica gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Love, love, LOVE Kara! She was super helpful, thoughtful, and most importantly, patient in finding us our new home. We were relocating fromnout of state and she made sure to take the time to share about the different areas and answer all of our questions (she knows her stuff!). Althought we decided to rent for now, we cannot wait for Kara to help us when we decide to buy! Thank you, Kara!
    Matt gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Second time working with Kara and she is always there to help and answer my questions.
    Matt gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara was amazing in finding me what I needed in an incredibly short timeframe. She went off of very little information I gave her and I loved multiple listings she showed me. From the pool of listings she showed me I was able to find the house that I truly loved and she helped guide the process every step of the way and it was very stress-free. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home or to rent, she made the process VERY simple.
    Jesi gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara did an astounding job for my family! Through both the buying and selling process she was there for us every step of the way. Her attitude and determination to help speaks volumes! She listened to our wants and needs and completely delivered when looking for the perfect home for our family! We definitely suggest using Kara for your next home buy or sale!
    Quinten gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara is Amazing! We bought our house with her and then sold it with her when we had to relocate again. Through both buying and selling she repeatedly went above and beyond what you would expect from a realtor. If anyone I know is ever needing a realtor in NW Arkansas I am going to recommend her hands down.
    Quinten gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara was amazing! She was always quick to respond to any questions I had. She was always involved in making sure each step from finding a house to signing at closing was progressing smoothly. She gave great advice and listened to any concerns I had.
    Ted gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara was very helpful and informative. She engaged early prior to my arrival to set the expectation for the area tour, was prompt and followed up within the subsequent week.
    Tristen gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara was an amazing relator. She understood the needs and wants that my husband and I were looking for in a home. She was also very quick to answer questions, and to solve problems. She certainly exceeded our expectations. I would most definitely use her again.
    Brandon gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara is a joy to work with. She successfully took a potentially overwhelming situation with a wide range of home options and confidently led us through the process to find our great fit. She was patient as I pushed to look at more and was available to answer any question I had (and continue to have). I would recommend her to anyone and look forward to working with her again.

    Mackenzie gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    We moved from out of town and Kara was so accommodating! She met us whenever we were available and remained in constant communication with us until we were able to in town. She listened to what we wanted and chose great houses that fit our needs. The negotiating and closing process was quick and painless. She's great! Definitely will recommend her to anyone in the area looking to buy/sell their home.
    Yu gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara is very nice, friendly and caring. She listens to all questions, requests and concerns carefully, and response very promptly (no matter it is late night or even weekend). Besides that, she provided great help on finding a temporary living place for us. We are very grateful and appreciate her greatly.
    Nicole gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara assisted my husband and I on our rental house hunt as part of our relocation to the Northwest Arkansas area. She paid close attention to our requirements and ensured we found the best house in the right location to fit our needs. We were extremely impressed with her professionalism as well as her availability and responsiveness. I would highly recommend Kara for any real estate needs and would look forward to working with her again in the future!
    Kelly gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    After providing Kara with a few parameters as to what we were looking for, she took that information and immediately began to funnel properties to us to review prior to our arrival. We flew up from San Antonio, TX for 3 days and were set on finding housing before we left - because of Kara's diligence and organization we were able to view several properties on our first day and ultimately secured housing for our upcoming move. From the initial introduction to days after we'd secured a place Kara was very genuine in her efforts to ensure our relocation is as smooth as possible. I will be contacting Kara again for future real estate needs.
    Virginia gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara was the most friendly and positive person to work with. Although moving is a very stressful time Kara was always there with an upbeat positive attitude that made the situation more bearable. I would recommend Kara to anyone and everyone I know that is wanting to sell or buy a house. What a pleasant experience it all was with her involved and when we were to tired to accommodate the buyers demands anymore, without asking her to, Kara stepped over and above our expectations to perform the last requests dictated by the buyer. Thank you so much Kara, hopefully we will keep in touch!
    Katy gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara was very diligent when it came to searching for a rental property for me on short notice. She kept my interests and requirements in mind, along with pricing. Kara was very helpful, kind, and personable. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone searching for a place to live.
    Chris gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Excellent and quick experience finding our new home thanks to Kara. She answered all our questions, and kept in contact through the whole process. If you need a hard working, dedicated realtor you can trust, then give her a call. My family thanks you Kara!
    C.W. gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    Kara is the ultimate professional. She has a passion for what she does and it shows. Her work ethic will have you feeling like you are the only client she has. In choosing a real estate agent, it is very important to know that you have someone in your corner that has your best interest in mind, someone who will work for you. That's exactly what you will get from her. Looking forward to working with her again!

    Kara is very responsive. She worked diligently to answer all of our requests and schedule showings. Very easy to work with!
    Samuel gave Kara 5 stars out of 5
    My nickname for Kara is "Miss Awesome"! She is a wonderful real estate agent who goes above and beyond the call of duty compared to other agents I have worked with in the past. On my recent cross-country relocation to Northwest Arkansas, Kara represented me on the purchase transaction in Bentonville, which went very smoothly by comparison to the nightmare sale transaction in Chicago. While I was out of town throughout much of the Bentonville transaction, Kara handled most of the local details for me, including contract negotiations with the builder, coordinating with the mortgage banker on the appraisal and loan documentation, and being on-site during the property inspection, punch-list development, and final walk-through. She also handled all of the contract documentation and signatures online, sent me photos of the construction progress leading up to the closing, told me how to contact the local utility companies to get the electricity, water, and natural gas services started, and gave me local referrals for title insurance, home inspection, home & auto insurance, home security, and health insurance. She even gave me pointers on selecting a refrigerator and washer and dryer for the new home! Needless to say, all of this was enormously helpful while I was out of town. Kara clearly has a knack for what she is doing, and she is phenomenally good at facilitating cross-country relocations. I highly recommend her services, and I will hire her again in a heartbeat if I ever move in the future. Thank you, Miss Awesome! You have definitely earned your nickname and my future business. :-)

    Kara Self is a very dedicated real estate agent, very quick to help you in any way possible. She makes sure you are a top priority which is the most important thing when you are buying or selling a home. I highly recommend her and wouldn't use anyone else!
