To Whom It May Concern,
We hereby state that Karen Berling is a world class real estate agent with
extreme patience. This patience allows her to take the time to get to know clients so
well that she can picture where they would want to live. Furthermore, this patience
allows her to focus on the clients’ desire rather than the quest of a quick sale. Karen
worked with us over a period of one year while we took the time to learn the town and
which side we really wanted to live in. This part of the process was really important to
us as we had made a choice in a different town under pressure from another agent that
turned out not to be the best for us. Thus, we were predisposed to be extremely
cautious, even if we needed to change as many agents as needed. But Karen proved
herself so much to us that we did not need to seek any further assistance. She went as
far as consulting with her networks to discuss our selection criteria seeking further
ideas to help us find what we wanted and where we wanted it. What a patient lady!
In addition to being patient, there is another great quality about her we wanted
to ensure is brought to awareness, that is, genuinely personable, friendly and not
phony. She is so personable that her motto is “I want to have a room in every house I
sell”. That is taking real estate to an all new level, and ooh! yes, she has her room in
our house anytime. We had even offered her a key but she declined politely stating
that she will call if her kids and husband want her to leave her house. Speaking of
her family, she has worked around the clock; around her family activities to ensure
she took us where needed to see within relatively a very short time, each and every
time. She did it even, if she needed help from her husband at times. Mind you that this
process lasted over one year during which she had other clients, but nothing stopped
her from being committed to helping us find what will make us happy. This is putting
the clients’ desires, and needs before quick sale tricks that we have now come to know
too well in the real estate business. What a personable lady!
From July 27th to December 23rd 2011, we have been living very happily in
our house, loving it and satisfied with our choice, while we continue to meet our new
friendly neighbors and get to know them. We finally got some time off from work
and decided to write this reference/recommendation letter for other potential clients to
consider when faced with the opportunity to work with Karen Berling in the purchase
of the most valuable material possession, a house.
