"I am writing to express my deep appreciation for the absolute excellence in service I received from Karen Richards during my home buying process. As a newly single woman, the task of home buying could have been extremely stressful and complicated for me but with the care, concern and commitment on Karen Richards part to make sure she found exactly what was right for me and ensure that the entire process went as smooth as possible is a rare example of great quality customer service. I am deeply indebted to her for her friendly, personal attention and for making me feel comfortable throughout the process. She is one in a million and one to be trusted with all the home buying needs. What more can I say, if you want the best help in purchasing your home, see Karen Richards!"

"We were selling our home of twenty nine years in Arizona and needed a realtor in the state of Texas where we were moving to. Karen Richards came to us highly recommended and we did not hesitate having her represent us.
"Moving can be strenuous time normally, but when you are moving from another state and are not present the stress lever seems a little higher. You must have someone you can trust, Karen was just that person, she is honest, knowledgeable, dedicated, caring and truly concerned about your needs. She kept in constant contact with us and was always available for any questions. She constantly sent us homes for sale in the area we were interested in and with her help found a great buy. She handled every step of the closing and made sure all documents were correct.
"We want to thank Karen for making this very stressful time as stress free as possible. She was always there to let us know that everything would be o.k.
"RE/MAX should be proud to have a lady of her character." - M. & H. F.
