    Partnership with Karen was the key to successfully sell my investment property in Lakeside, SF July 1st 2021. Karen timely helped me finding right vendors such as painters, contractors, stagers and cleaning services to put the property in the market on time. This year was crazy in finding right venders on time because of an unusual time, due to Government's Covid-19 stimulus funds so many people didn't work. Karen prepared all the aspects of marketing. On line marketing, photographing of the property and sending AD in mailing. Karen reasonably advised the target listing price of the property. By Right timing of lowering asking price gained a huge attention in the market and resulted in receiving multiple offers. Karen understands market, takes actions when needed, and negotiates for the best price of the property.

    I'm sitting in my living room couch on a sunny, Sunday afternoon all to myself after enjoying a full breakfast with eggs, sausages, toast and a hot cup of coffee...I realize that I'm living in my own home. What a comforting feeling! Buying a home is one of the most nerve-racking endeavors you'll experience because you're really making a long-term decision, looking inside yourself and asking what do you really want. I was lucky enough to work with Karen Mai, as my realtor, when I went through my home-buying process. She is someone who is knowledgeable about the real estate market, listens to your needs, makes herself available, is supportive and works out any kinks in the buyer-seller dialog to bring an outcome that both parties are happy with. She was able to help me make my dream of buying a home come true. The process was smooth. I was given clear communication and instructions throughout. Karen accompanied me to all my signings, was there for my final walk-through to answer any questions I still had and it just felt so easy. I feel lucky every time I have a quiet moment to myself and I look around at this house I get to call my own. If you get a chance to work with Karen, you are making a very sound decision!

    It was a pleasure having Karen as our Realtor. She answered all our questions, replied to our phone calls, e-mails and text messages. Making sure we had all the documents she needed in a timely manner. Karen is not only helping us get a loan to buy our house, she was our Real Estate agent to buy and sell our house. Oh yes, she does it all, just call Karen, I guarantee you she will help you. Thanks, Karen!
