I would recommend our Realtor, Karen Burket, to anyone. Her service was exceptional She was wonderful to work with; always cheerful and friendly, she listened to us and drove us around to many listings, both those she had pulled up and ones I had researched on my own. It is obvious Karen loves what she does. She found us a home we love and can afford. Karen has also assisted us after the sale by letting workers in the house for estimates or servicing; this was above and beyond and we are most grateful. James and Alina J.
