Karen Paris's Blog Posts
Only the finest will do? I couldn't agree with you more.
As a Luxury Home Consultant, I bring an unflinching eye for quality, an appreciation of impeccable craftsmanship, and a sophisticated understanding of the exquisite subtleties that set the standard for a luxury home. It's what allows me to introduce home buyers to prestigious properties that transcend the typical and reflect a passion for the exceptional.
I've distinguished myself with my clients by delivering the highest level of service, and I'm taking my business to the next level as a member of Luxury Homes by Keller Williams - a leading real estate company in high-end properties.
You see, I've always demanded excellence of myself too. We're going to get along just fine.
Contact me, and I'll begin searching for properties that are a match for your exacting specifications. And don't be surprised when one of those captivating possibilities turns out to be home.
Just think. More money, less time, fewer hassles.
You deserve it.
You've worked hard for what you have. When it comes time to sell your property, make certain your investment is protected and well represented. Put yourself in the hands of an upper tier marketing expert.
As a KW Luxury Home Consultant, I'm committed to getting you the top dollar you deserve. Simply listing a house for sale isn't enough. To yield the highest return, luxury properties must be marketed aggressively and systematically, and that's precisely what I do.
Here's a fact: Homes that sell quickly sell at a higher price than properties that languish on the market.
My proven multi-step custom marketing plan brings my clients great results. Fast. If you're thinking of selling, I'd love the opportunity to set a consultative appointment and share the details of my marketing strategy. And help you receive top dollar too.

As first time home buyers, Karen helped us navigate the complicated real estate world and find the house that worked for us within our tight budget and time line, while carting around a small baby and having limited days to look in a tight market. She is very knowledgeable about all aspects of home buying, kind, has great connections to help home loans go easier, stays on top of things, answers any question (without acting as though it was a stupid one), is readily available, and truly loves what she does. She was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend her to others.

I've known Karen for well over 20 years, as a business client of mine and before and during her real estate career. She's very energetic, cares about her clients and doing the right thing for them. And she's a skilled real estate agent. A very good choice for real estate.
BRANCH MANAGER at MILLS DAVIS TEAM
Karen is very competent and very dedicted to her clients. She is extremely detailed in her support of her clients leaving no stone unturned when representing buyers or seller. She is very prompt with her responses and always works in the best interest of her client.s
Karen became very involved in helping me at every step in the process of selling my home. She was patient but persistent when dealing with lenders, HOAs, and other roadblocks. She was completely dedicated to providing me the best service possible, up to and including shoveling 40 inches of snow off of my sidewalk and out of my egress well! I cannot stress enough her dedication to her clients, her high level of expertise and the integrity and care with which she performs her job. I would whole-heartedly recommend Karen to anyone seeking to buy or sell property.
I am 66, and this is my 5th home. In my past experience realtors don't really listen to you. They show houses that don't meet your needs, or are outside your budget. She actually listened, previewed all homes first, so as not to waste my time, and the third one she showed me was the charm! I am totally delighted with my experience. At closing she presented me with a binder, which had all the info. On the property, what the previous owners had done, home Warranty info., everything I could possibly need. She went well beyond the necessary! She was so professional and organized, I could barley belief it. This is probably my last home, but if I needed to do it again, I would want her! I HIGHLY recommend Her. The best, and easiest buying experience I've ever had! It just doesn't get any better!
Mortgage Planner/Sales Manager at Cornerstone Home Lending
Karen and I have worked together and participated in joint training sessions. We've also consulted with each other on mutual clients and Karen's approach to customer service is outstanding. She strives to exceed the expectations of her customers and I highly recommend her.
As a first-time homebuyer I was extremely overwhelmed with the process of finding my home, but Karen made everything easy and fun! She is extremely knowledgeable, thorough and reliable and it is because of her that I now live in my dream home! I not only recommend her, but I also recommend the lender professionals she referred me to.

She is very knowledgeable about the entire process with the attentiveness that you would expect, but is rarely given. My house sold immediately as well as another family that we recommended her to. Both of us are very pleased with the process that she guided us through.
