    We worked with Karen to get our dream home! I truly believe we would not have had our offer accepted with another agent. Karen knows the market and was able to get our offer accepted in one day! She made the process fun, exciting, and easy! We had Karen sell our townhome as well! We had two buyers back out for loan/mortgage issues. Although disappointing, Karen kept us optimistic and still sold our townhome quickly and for over asking! She was in constant communication with us and made sure we understood the entire process through both buying and selling. Overall, Karen is dedicated, trustworthy, and very knowledgeable! She is absolutely great to work with and makes buying/selling your home fun!

    If you just want a real estate agent, don't go to Karen. If you want someone who will knock your socks off working only for you,Karen is the woman for you. The 1st time Karen helped me sell my home and purchase, she was relentless in finding the perfect house at the right price for my husband and I. The next time was after my husband had died and selling the house was way more involved. Karen absolutely rose to the challenge and also found me the home I needed to move into. On June 9th, we did 2 closings miles apart and I moved.. Karen made sure it all went smoothly. To this day she checks in with me. In my. Experience, Karen is the quintessential home Brooker. So if you want someone committed to you and your family, call this woman! You won't regret it.

    We had the pleasure of working with Karen as both our listing agent, and with buying a new construction home. Karen made selling our home stress-free. She was quick to answer any questions we had during the process of both buying and selling. Karen is experienced, knowledgeable, and always has her clients' best interests in mind. Thanks to Karen we received multiple offers and sold our home in less than a week!

    Karen's knowledge and attention to detail are unmatched. She's been our agent and therapist through the buying and selling process and would give her 10 stars!! She answered any and all of our questions and concerns with a personal touch. She talked us through all the steps of our buying and selling process making sure we understand each step. Karen answered all of our calls and emails extremely fast and made us feel like we're her only clients! She totally put our minds at ease at every turn. My wife and I consider Karen more than our agent but a close friend! Bottom line is if you want an agent to pay attention to what your needs/wants are with a personal touch you can't get any better than Karen!! Karen is extremely personable, down to earth but most importantly professional and thorough!! We love Karen and would recommend her to anyone!! Thanks Karen for all your hard work, time and caring about our needs!! Karen we appreciate all you've done for us!! You're the best!!

    Karen is the only realtor I wanted to deal with in selling my house. Her knowledge and expertise in this field are untouchable. Along with this asset her compassion for the needs of the seller of a home is heartwarming! Twenty years ago I was the buyer of a home and now I was the seller and she was the only realtor I wanted to deal with. Karen is a valuable asset to Coldwell Banker beyond compare and I have grown to love her as a human being. Thank you my friend!!

    Amanda gave Karen 5 stars out of 5
    There are truly not enough words to express my gratitude to Karen. This August, I purchased my first home and Karen took away absolutely every stress I had during this process (no exaggeration). I found Karen on a whim as I unfortunately had a poor experience with an agent prior. I called Karen late at night about a listing she represented, she answered the call and spoke with me at length answering my questions and getting to know me better. She met me at the house the next morning, and we were signing an agreement the next day. Karen has such commendable expertise and knowledge of real estate in so many capacities, I felt taken care of in every sense. Her outside referrals were top notch! Not to mention Karen's incredible personality'”down to earth, funny, genuine, and sincerely kindhearted. This experience for me as a whole exceeded my expectations by far, and as I said, I could not be more grateful to have found Karen as my realtor. If you are still considering choosing a realtor, choose Karen! Karen, thank you for being YOU! You are a truly wonderful person and I am so glad to have spent my first-time home buying experience with you guiding me. Be on the lookout for your house warming invitation! All the best, Amanda

    Tressa gave Karen 5 stars out of 5
    BAR NONE, Karen is by far the BEST real estate agent we ever had. We had an offer on our home in a matter of 1 day after a showing due to Karen's wealth of knowledge of the real estate business. Karen was strong in every aspect for us, (the seller). She took it upon herself to go above and beyond everything we needed to do to prepare for the sale of our house. In fact, we weren't living in the area any longer and she took care of things that were needed at the For Sale Property. From the signing of the selling papers to closing, was 6 weeks! Why? Because Karen is very attentive, thorough, and always had her "ducks in a row". She was always there for us, no matter what time of the day or evening, to handle every little "bump in the road". Karen was very prompt in communicating. We never had to wait for a return call or an email. On top of all this, Karen is very personable and very approachable and a lovely person. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Karen for any and all of your real estate needs!!

    I want to give Karen a shout out for being a Wonderful person and Agent. Karen went above and beyond in helping to sell my parents home in Crafton Heights. Karen was very attentive to the needs of an out of town seller, and helped make the sale as smooth as possible. There were a few challenges, as always with an older home. Also with no one in Pgh, when unexpected issues came up, Karen stepped up and helped! In addition she knows her stuff! I can personally can recommend Karen, as an Agent myself, I know how important it is to have an agent that knows the market, and is willing to work hard to get the sale to the closing table. Thank you so much for all your help.

    My mom used Karen Crochunis with Coldwell Banker to sell her home in Cecil, PA this spring (2019) and she was outstanding. We spoke with Karen and then met with her at my mom's home. She spent hours answering our questions and providing tons of info on comps in the area. Karen made the process incredibly easy and took extra steps like taking professional photographs of the home, giving us staging tips, and a lot more. When my mom saw her listing she was blown away. Karen's hard work and knowledge of what it takes to sell a home really paid off '“ my mom's listing looked amazing and knocked out the competition. My mom's house went under contract 4 days after Karen put it on the market and sold for over asking price. My mom accepted and Karen walked my mom through every step of the closing process. It couldn't have been a more pleasant experience. We've recommended Karen Crochunis to everyone we know. She's a true professional and a genuinely nice woman. It may not always be this easy to sell a home, but you would be hard pressed to find a better and knowledgeable Realtor.

    I cannot say enough about Karen. She really listened to my thoughts and needs. The communication was great and thorough. I didn't have any decisions made without an explanation. From listing my house to signing at the closing, Karen showed her knowledge and professionalism. Punctuality is also very important to me. Karen never had me wait for anything. As soon as she received information, I was notified. Karen is a great asset to Coldwell Banker and I would definitely suggest everyone to speak to her about their real estate needs.

    This is the second time I've had the pleasure of working with Karen. She was able to find my family the perfect starter home. When the time came to sell that property she was the only person I would have help us with that. Her experience, professionalism, knowledge, and kindness make her hands down the best in the business. She is there to answer questions and provide assistance long after the buying or selling process is over. I highly recommend Karen for as an agent.

    Karen is a great agent; she helped us buy a new home and sell our previous home. We can't say enough good things about her. She's very knowledgable, approachable and extremely personable. Karen was very responsive and took the time to explain the home buying process and scenarios along the way in great detail with us. Our house sold within 4 days of being on the market, now came the process of purchasing another one in the middle of an insanely difficult housing market for buyers. She reassured us that everything would be ok. After losing out on a couple of homes we started to get discouraged but with Karen's support we found a beautiful home within only 2 months of selling ours. We are very happy with our new home, and would recommend Karen without hesitation..

    I actually went through 2 other realtors before friends recommended Karen and I must say that she is top-notch! The absolutely best realtor that I have ever had the privilege to work with. She has superior knowledge of her business, knows the areas she works, has a wealth of experience but most of all, she listens. She is the first realtor that I have worked with who wanted my best interests at heart, she listened to me and knew what I wanted. She's the best. And aside from being a wonderful realtor, she is just a TERRIFIC person. One of the very best. I am grateful to have met her and worked with her.

    Karen was absolutely wonderful, very personable and extremely efficient. She also kept us updated and informed every step of the way through the sometimes confusing parts of buying a home. She was available for us day and night. We had some challenges throughout the 'process' with an out of the country seller and with that came unexpected issues. Karen was not only on top of everything with resolving issues right away but did her job as a Real Estate Agent above and beyond and did the Sellers RE Agents job as well. All to make us happy homeowners. I highly recommend Karen and will only deal with her in the future for any of our buying and/or selling needs.

    As first time home buyers, my fiance and I were completely overwhelmed. Karen was a dream to work with. I work in retail so my schedule is not the normal 9-5, however, Karen was always willing to be able to work around my schedule. She was extremely knowledgeable within the Pittsburgh market in helping us locate several properties. Her eye to detail helped us look past minor cosmetic issues that would easily be able to be fixed as well as major repairs that would be to much to take on within our budget. Her professional connections helped us tremendous during the home-buying process, in regards to inspectors, loan officers, etc. Having Karen guide us through this process, not only as our agent, but as our friend was a breeze during this normally stressful time. She will come HIGHLY recommended.

    We are the fist-time home buyers and we haven't had any proper direction for the home search until we met Karen. She is excellent and very knowledgeable in the Real Estate field, specifically she has vast experience in dealing with real estate properties in the Pittsburgh region. Originally we were looking for Town Homes and finally ended-up getting the lovely single-family home with the very good deal. Karen was thorough in her process, follow-ups and communications. We interacted with at least 4 - 5 real estate agents before we met Karen and we ended-up choose her as our buyer agent because of her experience and very customer friendly approach. Through out our home buying process Karen never forced us to buy anything in hurry, She takes time and explains all pros and cons of the properties that we visited. This unique quality is very rare to find among the real estate agents, so we were so lucky to pick her as our buyer agent. Any point of time in the whole home buying process we never felt pressurized and Karen always gave us time to make right decisions which really helped us to transparently disclose everything with her. She suggested right people for all of the processes happen during various stages of the home buying process. Which greatly helped us not to run around the market and look for right people and saved lot of our time. We ran into a chaos just before the day of closing, but Karen nailed it very well and made it possible in spite of her personal commitments. With that said, we are another one happy custom for Karen in her long Client list and we highly recommend her service to anyone who is desperate to get the house in Pittsburgh region.

    Karen was everything that I had hoped for in a realtor throughout the process of buying my first house. Buying a house can be overwhelming (to say the least) but Karen made it simple with her knowledge of the area that I was aiming for, her thoroughness in collecting a series of potential homes within my price range and with the desired attributes, and particularly her advice in making sure I was keeping the most important aspects of home ownership in perspective. She has a great network of professionals for inspections or for when work needs to be done. Last but certainly not least, her keen observations led me to get the best deal in a situation where work needed to be performed before the sale could happen. Highly recommended

    I've used Karen for all my real estate needs for more than three decades! She is, hands down, the best agent - more knowledgeable than any other agent I've ever met --- and I'm an appraiser so I've met hundreds --- and no question ever goes unanswered. No matter whether you are on the buying or selling end of the transaction, she works like her only goal in life is to get you to the end with a smile on your face. She sold my mother's house recently. The deal wasn't without glitches and my mother can be brutal. Karen handled everything and everyone with the utmost professionalism and got the job done.

    Karen does a wonderful job ! I have to share this story. I had worked so hard on getting the interior of the house ready for sale that I really hadn't taken note of the outdoor appearance as much as I should. Karen had! She arrived one day with a truckload of mulch and a pressure washer to clean up the front entrance with me. It made a huge difference in the appearance of the house and it definitely helped to sell it. Now that's a realtor going beyond what is necessary don't you think?

    Our experience working with Mrs. Crochunis has been an enjoyable one. She is very knowledgeable of the local area real estate and was always available to answer any questions we had through the shopping and purchase process. We were never misguided when looking at homes, she knew what we wanted. She sold a home for us 15 years ago and vowed we would use her services again. Glad we made the choice this time too.

    Karen is the most knowledgeable and friendly person I have ever meet. Her year of experience definitely shows. If I ever have any restate needs or no any body that does she will be the one. Even though she is not making a big commission on this agreement being a forecloser, she has spent so much time with us and the banks making this deal work. That's amazing, she deserves commended for her efforts. Thanks again Tom & Rhonda Williamson

    Karen really sets the bar for what a real estate agent should be; she is a wealth of knowledge. I really appreciate that she sends the seller disclosures prior to an appointment (when available) so that you can focus on the house itself while you're there and already have an idea what you may want to pay special attention to. You'll feel like you truly have an advocate on your side, someone who has your best interest in mind. Rather than getting caught up in the whirlwind of the process you'll be confident in your final decision.
