In one word, Ms. Karen Stanko was outstanding! I first interviewed two other realtors, that were supposed to be the experts of our neighbourhood. I then met with Karen who had been referred a friend in the financial industry. Karen was the realtor that came in prepared and ready to earn my business, rather than feeling entitled to it. Right from the very first meeting, Karen handed me her resume and let me know what she could do for me. I must say, when I first met Karen, I believe she was about 8 months pregnant. I showed Karen around my house, or should I say, I tried to keep up with her as she trotted up and down the stairs of my two story house, her energy and enthusiasm was boundless. She was professional, smart, knowledgable, helpful, flexible and well connected. Of the three realtors I met with, Karen quoted me the highest list price, but that was not what sold me on her. When I had questions, she not only gave me the answers, but solid reasons to back them up. She let me know what I needed to do to prep my house for sale and the rest was painless. Karen went straight to work, she kept me informed with all interest in my house and answered any questions I had. Within a week I accepted a top dollar offer, within 2 weeks my house was sold. Many of the homes that were listed a month or two before mine, were still listed when I moved. Thank you Karen Stanko, it truly was a pleasure. I have and will continue to highly recommend you!
We found Karen at a time when we thought we would never find a home. We wanted someone honest, knowledgeable, dedicated and not pushy. Well after a couple of agents we found Karen, she put the work into finding us a home in the community and features we wanted. There was no B.S. involved, just her dedication and hard-work and a great personality too. Anything we asked Karen she got us the answers and not a week later when it’s too late. We now have two great people to add to our list of friends, Karen Stanko and the former owner of our new wonderful home. Thank you Karen for soothing a stressful agonizing time for me and my family!
Buying our first home was such an enjoyable experience thanks to karen. She really understood what was important to our family when looking for a home, and was always there to answer any question we had. Karen made us feel comfortable and supported us through the whole process. She is truly a wonderful person and we are so happy she was a part of buying our first home.
As a first time homebuyer in the market for a condo Karen helped me understand a LOT about the condo industry and how owning a condo is different than a stand alone home. I felt like she had a lot of experience and she was always able to give me knowledgeable answers to questions I had as well as being willing to offer her own opinion in a direct, unobtrusive and effective manner. I appreciated her approach to viewing homes and she was able to see after only a few places what mattered to me and got a good sense of the kind of space I required for my lifestyle. My purchase timeline changed unexpectedly when very motivated selle rs pursued me to make an offer and Karen gave excellent advice on how to manage the offer and negotiation process so that everything could happen on a timeline that suited the buyers, and within a budget that suited me. I was able to save a lot of money by adjusting my expectations and Karen gave great advice throughout that allowed me to feel like I was able to make decisions according to my own comfort level. I would highly recommend Karen for condo or first time home buying purchases.
It felt like my house hunt lasted forever! As a first time homebuyer, I had a lot to learn about what I wanted in my first place. Karen took me all over town to all sorts of homes until I finally figured out what I wanted and where I wanted to be. She cared about me and my home search, always listening to my feedback and respecting my decisions. Karen encouraged me when I felt like I’d never find a place that met my criteria, and made the home search fun. With Karen I never felt pressured. She encouraged me to listen to my instincts and to wait until I found the one. Thank to Karen’s Patience and perseverance she found my dream home. I love my new condo and my neighbourhood; I cannot thank her enough!
Thank you so much Karen, We love our new home, couldn't have done it without you. My husband and I have just recently purchased a home, in the beginning we thought rent to own was the only way to go until we got in touch with Karen.
