Karen and Ken were the most professional, caring and thorough realtors it has ever been our pleasure to deal with. They walked us through the intricacies of buying a home in the Punta Gorda Isles which is a unique experience. Far beyond the normal requirements of understanding the market and real estate types/availability etc, Karen and Ken also intimately understand the boating lifestyle, culture and the technical aspects of boating in the Punta Gorda area. They made sure we saw homes we were interested in from the water to understand that vantage point. They took us out to lunch by boat to local boating hangouts and clubs to get a feel for the place. While it is a bit of a cliché, we honestly see Karen and Ken as good friends at this point They went well beyond the call of duty during the recent hurricane season when we were not able to get back to our property and they kindly prepped our home by lowering and bolting shutters, picking up yard ornaments and turning off the water. More than that, they gave refuge to our son during the storm and fed him when he was trying to get out of Miami. They are truly great people. Knowledgeable, caring, hard working and good friends.

Karen and Ken are dedicated to providing the highest level of service to their clients. We had a great experience working with them both selling and buying properties. They communicated with us knowledgeably and professionally throughout the process and we were extremely satisfied.

These are Five Star people. Active in the community, professional, responsive, helpful, caring, thorough, honest, smart and good friends. If you want a realtor team that will work their butts off for you, that will represent your best interests and not theirs, these are the folks.

My wife Bonnie and I have been working with Karen and Ken to sell two vacant lots in Punta Gorda. One recently closed and the other remains on the market. Both Karen and Ken have been extremely professional and always on top of the sales process. They also have given us timely and complete information on market conditions. In addition, when we sold the first lot we were out of town but they did an excellent job of handling the negotiations and closing of the lot remotely.
Karen and Ken are Realtors which you can rely on completely in any situation.

Karen was patient, efficient and caring throughout the process and she has a thorough knowledge of the area. Moving from Ohio to Florida, we relied heavily on Karen for information about homes and about living in Florida. She answered all of our questions promptly and made this major transition very smooth for us. I would highly recommend her.

We worked with Karen on both the sale of our house and the purchase of our condo and all phases of both transactions went smoothly with the utmost professionalism. On our house sale, Karen prepared a marketing plan with support materials, visual tour, etc. that generated 26 showings within the initial 60 days in the market culminating in an excellent offer and a smooth, seamless closing. On our condo purchase, Karen presented our offer and concluded a successful agreement to purchase within 48 hours of our initial offer and then, despite some inspections issues, successfully concluded the close by negotiating with the buyer’s agent to resolve all of the issues. Simply put, makes a tireless effort in your behalf to achieve either your sale or purchase.
One of the best in the Punta Gorda market area.

Ken and Karen are a dynamite team that compliment each other with their technical and marketing abilities. They have extensive knowledge of the local markets and conditions that bring results.
Going with these guys, you can't go wrong.

Ken & Karen are dedicated real estate brokers. They know their business and are constantly building on their experience, which is vast. They attend workshops and real estate seminars to be sure they are current on all of the real estate trends. Working with them is like being with your good friends, which they have become since we bought our home. It is through their efforts that my family enjoys the comforts of a great house and neighborhood.
Whether it is buying a home or selling it, I recommend their services very highly!

Karen & Ken possess in-depth market knowledge and have many automated tools to keep the client informed on available inventory that matches the client's preferences. They follow up in a timely manner and are fun people to work with and be around.
The best that we have ever experienced

We came down from Massachusetts looking for a retirement home with no intention of buying at this time. After spending 3 days with Karen & her husband Ken, we have put in an offer and hope our dream home will soon be ours. They have helped us with every aspect...from local contacts for inspections to financing.
Couldn't have asked for nicer people!

They were very helpful, resourceful and kind. They worked many long hours. This property was not an easy sell, very small and not well located. Both Karen and Ken work hard and long on everything.

Thanks so much to you and Karen for helping us find our place in Burnt Store Marina! We love it here and really appreciate your expertise, time and patience you extended us during our search! The best bonus is that we found our first friends in Punta Gorda and look forward to seeing you socially!

Thank you for the successful sale of our house on Aruba. We had it listed with several Realtors over the course of the past 4 years and you totally amazed us with your professionalism, your service levels and your marketing techniques. To have as many showings as we did in this market was unbelievable, and your communication and feedback to us about the showings was outstanding.
We will definitely refer our friends and family to you! Thank you!
