“I have used Karma to sell my house and to buy another. She is very quick to respond and did a great job of getting the information I needed to make the right decisions. I would highly recommend her and her team if you are selling your existing home or looking for another.”
“Our home search started in January, we did not purchase until April. Our list of must have’s was huge. Patience needs to be added to the list of qualifiers. Karma had to have a lot of it working with us. We looked at a least 50 homes before picking the one we currently reside in. Karma was extremely knowledgeable of not only neighborhoods in the city of Tyler but also surrounding farm properties and Lake Palestine. She and her team also have a good understanding of the current housing market. This helped us select a home that not only met our needs but has been a good investment as well.”
