Gaithersburg, MD AM:

“As a fellow Realtor who recently worked the other side of a sale with Karen, I think she is a terrific professional who represented her client incredibly well. This transaction wouldn't have happened without her savvy and persistent communication. I hope we can work together again soon!”

Gaithersburg, MD SS:

“Well I'm not sure where to start or if my words can be enough to express how thankful and happy I am to have worked with Karen . She's amazing , professional and vey knowledgeable . You rarely come across real estate agents like her , she truly cares and is very much dedicated . I've talked to few agents but no comparison. Karen made me feel like she's friend that I can trust . She responded to my texts and emails right away and boy I did send her tones of emails and asked her billion questions . I was really blowing away by the experience she delivered . It took me months before I found a house but she never gave up and was always supportive. If you happen to come across her profile and read this look no further she will help you in every way she can with the same smile from start to finish no matter how long the process will take. I am referring family member to her who will be working with her soon!! Thank you Karen for everything you did . You are an asset to any company you work for ”:)”

“Karen was awesome. A real pleasure to work with and very knowledgeable. A last-minute hitch threatened to put a halt to our sale going through, but Karen was prepared to do whatever was necessary to prevent that from happening. Thank you Karen!”

Kensington, MD RL:

“I can't speak highly enough of Karen Parnes - I would insist (even higher than recommend) anyone wanting to buy a house work with her! She was our buyers agent for a tricky short sale property that ended up going to foreclosure. Despite the challenges, she helped us close within one month (unheard of!). Karen conducted her work with a high level of professionalism and extraordinary customer service. Karen is highly responsive, available, thorough, and always followed-up with any action items or requests immediately. We really felt we had a friend supporting us and going up to bat for us whenever the seller's agent or 3rd party bank gave us a hard time. She cared that we get the house! The level of communication, attention to detail, and persistence are Karen's top qualities. She was able to coordinate multiple showings on very short notice when we needed contractors to view the house in order for us to apply for a rehab loan. She was patient with us as we triple checked we did everything that was required. Every aspect of the process went smoother than expected and we felt very informed along the way thanks to Karen and her team. She is an absolute gem!”

Gaithersburg, MD SH:

“We both bought and sold a home with Karen, and she was a pleasure to work with during both experiences. Karen was honest and open and was never pushy during either process. She was willing to accommodate personal requests during the selling process and provided valuable advice when it came time to evaluate offers. In working with her, it became clear that she was interested in more than just making a quick sale. She truly cares about her clients and works for their best interest. She was able to sell our home at a price that we felt comfortable with when another agent said that price was too high. During the buying process, she was very patient and gave her honest opinion on whether houses we were considering were priced fairly. We never felt rushed or pressured to make a decision while working with her. Karen is also extremely accessible and responsive. She responded to all of our communications very quickly and at all hours of the day. Her calm and confident demeanor helped put us at ease during this stressful time for us. We loved working with Karen and cannot say enough good things about her. We would highly recommend her to anyone!”

We ended up being outbid, but we now feel confident in our ability to put in a strong offer when we find the right house again.”

Rockville, MD KN:

“I cannot thank Karen enough for her care and help! This is the second houses she helped me with the buying process and she always delivers the best service.

Gaithersburg, MD AK:

“Karen Parnes is the best in her field! The property we purchased was a short sale. We had no idea that it would take 9 months to get to settlement. During the long wait we always felt that Karen treated us as her #1 priority. She consistently provided us with information on the purchase and market conditions. Karen goes above and beyond. She is a top notch professional. We couldn't have asked for a better representative. She never wavered from championing our purchase with the sellers realtor, short sale negotiator, or short sale attorney. Especially among many stakeholders, Karen was a decisive leader who produced great results. During the entire 9 month process Karen was consistently commitment to representing us. We will always be grateful that she guided us through this long process and helped us get an amazing house at a great price. We have already recommended Karen Parnes to friends.”

She was responding to some unforeseen questions even while being out of office and was working long hours to stay on top of everything. We had no need to remind her or ask twice and were also getting independent feedback on different questions during home inspection and closing.

She was proactive and reacted quickly, which, in this market and from our experience, was invaluable. Thanks Karen !”

“Karen was fantastic throughout the buying experience and really went to bat for us. We had some unexpected water damage that pushed back our closing date but Karen was a pro and went to bat for us making sure not only that all the damage was repaired prior to closing but also making sure that we didn't slip past the lender deadline so that we could keep our rate lock and loan terms. At the start of the process she helped push through a last minute offer late on a Saturday night and really helped us put together a top notch offer that won us the property. She was in our corner when it came to the inspection following up with all the repairs we requested and really had our back throughout the process. When it came down to it Karen was a consummate pro and delivered when it really counted. She was great!”

North Potomac, MD BL:

“Karen is an absolutely fantastic agent. We really wanted to take our time and find exactly the right house, and Karen was never pushy and always extremely helpful and offered great advice throughout the entire (6-month!) process. We had placed a somewhat low bid on another house early on. Karen had warned that we might lose it to a higher offer, and indeed, we did. So when we finally found another place we really loved, we were determined not to lose it. This time, we wanted to go in with a bid that was well over asking, but Karen advised not to pay more than we had to. She very quickly helped us put together a more reasonable but still very strong offer, and it was accepted, even beating out a competing cash offer. We couldn't have gotten it without her - or if we did, we would have ended up paying considerably more. We love our new house, and can't thank her enough for all her help.”
