” Karen was a great agent! We were referred to her, and within minutes we were talking real estate. We were on the west coast, and talking with Karen constantly for over a month before visiting the area to look at houses. Karen made it easy by not only answering all of our questions, but also anticipating what we would need. Her vast knowledge of Northern Virginia really came in handy in narrowing down our choice of locations (especially important for out of towners). During home walk throughs she was always there to answer our questions and bounce ideas off. Even after the sale she has continued to help us resolve new homeowner issues. We will continue to recommend Karen to others. “
– Jason & Aileen, Alexandria


” Karen was a fortunate find on the internet by my daughter, who lives in N. Virginia. I visited her at the end of October ’08 to look for property we were up and running. I only had 10 days before returning to California. As soon as Karen knew what I wanted, she took me to various properties which she felt suited me. After several viewings, I found a place which suited my needs and returned to CA. Karen led me through the maze of paper work via email. By the time I arrived back in VA for the closing on 17th December, 2008, the “Walk Through” with my daughter and son-in-law and final approval had been completed. I cannot praise Karen enough for her professional approach and turn around response to my queries via email. I recommend her highly and rank Karen at the top of her profession. “

” Thank you so much for helping us find a house. Your knowledge and experience gave us a first-rate education on being first time home buyers. We learned so much from you and appreciated every minute of your time. We were always so grateful to get straight-forward answers. Thank you again for your support, patience and guidance. Even though it was frustrating to go through nine contracts, we could not have asked for a better experience or for a better realtor. We will never forget you. ”
– Brandon & Ashton, Springfield


” Karen was great throughout the whole process; answering questions, showing us places, suggesting places, being available at all times…and she is so helpful and friendly, not to mention knowledgeable! ”
– S.C & C.C, Northern Virgina


” When faced with the daunting task of moving to a new state by myself, Karen Parker went above and beyond to make sure I found the right place for me. That?s why she was the only person that my husband and I trusted to help us find our first home. She knew how to decipher our rambling wish list and really did a fantastic job at effectively honing in on what we wanted. Not only did she play a critical part in us finding our dream home, but then assisted us in finding our first renters making the entire transition seamless! Beyond her reputation and market knowledge, it was like we were house hunting with a friend! ”
– Ryan & Karen, Leesburg


” We loved [Karen’s] passion for real estate, credibility and knowledge of the market…and [her] willingness to adventure out in the snow on several occasion! Thank you for all of your hard work and effort. ”

” Thank you, Karen for making my first home buying experience such a delight! I wouldn’t have been able to do it without you! ”
– Katherine, Arlington


” Karen-we really loved working with you. Being first time home buyers is so stressful, but knowing you were there every step of the way was a huge relief. We always talk about how lucky we were to find you. We couldn’t have asked for anything more! Thank you for being so great! ”
– Evan & Melissa, Arlington

” Karen was great throughout the whole process-answering questions, showing us places, suggesting places, being available at all times. And [she is] so helpful and friendly! Not to mention knowledgeable! ”
– Craig & Sarah, Alexandria


” My husband and I both really enjoyed our time with Karen. Karen was knowledgeable about all the geographic areas we were interested in,always prepared, extremely well qualified, and got us fantastic results (not to mention she’s plain ol’ fun to be around). We were dealing with a difficult seller, but Karen kept her cool and kept us on top of the bargain. She also listened to our needs and paid careful attention to how we responded to different properties, making the looking experience not only fun and enjoyable, but productive.

Once we had made our offer, she made sure all our ducks were in a row so that nothing was delayed, helped us find qualified experts to inspect our property, and went above and beyond to make sure that our home was ready for us after we signed on the dotted line. Our only regret is that we won’t be working with her again any time soon. ”
– Bjorn & Maria, Alexandria


” As first time home-buyers, we had a lot of questions. Karen always answered our questions with patience and a knowledgeable, helpful response. She took a lot of stress and uncertainty out of the home buying process. We’re so glad she was our agent! ”
– Ricky & Michelle, Woodbridge


” My wife and I were referred to Karen to help us buy in Northern Virginia by a couple that had actually bought through her in Maryland and were very happy with her services. From the beginning, Karen took the time to get to know us as people and understand both our goals and our boundaries (including price). She always managed to show us an appropriate spectrum of options. What was most impressive about Karen was the depth of her knowledge across a wide range of locations, price-points, and property types. Karen also gave us a level of honesty about the trade-offs of different properties and geographies that we found rare in prior dealings with other realtors. Most importantly, Karen delivered the level of service and responsiveness required to make us a competitive and knowledgeable buyer. Our home search was a very difficult assignment because not only were we new to the DC area (and to the suburbs) but our needs changed many times for personal reasons. Karen stuck with is through the thick and thin of a long search and, in the end, helped us find our dream home. Thank you, Karen! ”
– Carl & Rima, Falls Church VA


” Karen is very knowledgeable and great at telling us what we needed to know and answering questions. ”
– Matt & Cate, Manassas


” We just wanted to send a taken of our appreciation. The extra amount of work you have taken on, on our behalf is very very appreciated. Thank you so much for all of your hard work … ”
– Jon & Candice, Reston


” Karen did an outstanding job for us – as both a seller’s and buyer’s agent – over what turned out to be an extended period of time. She took us to look at countless houses and was always upfront with us on what properties were worth our interest. She gave us sensible and accurate advice throughout the whole searching process, and when it came time to move quickly on our house, she was as aggressive as necessary. Not only that, her use of Docusign software kept us from multiple trips down to her office, as we could just sign contract documents online. Then, when it came time to sell our Townhouse, Karen took care of absolutely everything for us! She priced it accurately according to the current market, staged the whole house, and arranged for all our repairs pre and post home inspection. We can’t recommend Karen highly enough. ”
– Jason & Robin, Fairfax


” Karen tells it to us straight. Honest. Excellent judgment. Thoughtful. Understanding and able to put herself in our shoes. ”
– Solomon & Liz, Dunn Loring


” Karen has an unbelievable knowledge base, both about home features/quality/construction and the Northern Virginia neighborhoods. She was patient with us as we looked for our first house, and advised us without putting pressure on us. Cannot recommend Karen highly enough! ”
– David, Vienna


” Karen is very easy going, professional and knowledgeable. I very much enjoyed working with her. ”
– Celia, Herndon


” When I first met Karen, I was anticipating I would be purchasing a home within the next four to five months. However, it was close to a year later until I was able to do so. During this time, Karen kept me informed of listings available and was always responsive to any questions I had. She never was impatient or pushy about my uncertain situation. When it was time to buy, she was knowledgeable and professional in all aspects of the home buying process. Karen really took the time to get to know me personally in an effort to help me find the home and location where I would be happiest. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone buying or selling a home. ”
– Sherry, Woodbridge


” We had the good fortune of working with Karen Parker on our recent home purchase in Northern Virginia. Being in the military, we’ve had our share of moves and real estate agents and without question, Karen is the best. She knows the market, shares her opinion, asks the right questions, and most important to us, is very responsive. Living out of state, we sent Karen our first email and 12 minutes later we were discussing our home needs with her. That type of responsiveness remained throughout the entire home buying process. She is the epitome of the professional real estate agent whose knowledge, experience, and approach sets her apart. She always made us feel like we were her number one priority. If you are buying or selling a home, you want Karen on your team. ”
– Jeff & Patti, Springfield


” Being first time home buyers, we both had a bunch of questions and concerns about the overall process and about selecting a house. Karen, with an exceptional amount of patience (we saw almost every house listed on MLS in our price range), answered all of our questions and addressed all of our concerns. While shopping for our home, Karen demonstrated her wealth of knowledge about the Northern Virginia area, and assisted us in determining what areas we would be able to find a house that satisfies both our needs and desires. If we were to buy a new house, we would be privileged if Karen would act as our agent again. “
– Kevin & Kara , Vienna


” Karen was fantastic! Moving to Virginia was overwhelming and Karen was right there to help in every way possible. Her experience was obvious – she was incredibly familiar with the areas and with all aspects of the home buying process. She made it easy! In addition to helping us find the perfect house, she got to know us personally and made sure we were doing well. When we found the perfect house, she celebrated with us! We would highly recommend Karen for anyone buying a house. We won’t use anyone else in the future! ”
– Sally & Jeff , Vienna


” We are sure that our home would not have sold as quickly as it did if Karen was not our agent. We were competing with 60 new homes for sale in our zip code. Karen’s savvy staging skills and pricing expertise helped sell our home in under 7 weeks, while other homes on our block are still for sale over 7 months later.

When searching for a home to purchase, Karen patiently showed us home after home in our desired zip codes. Karen is so down to earth and easy going, I looked forward to driving around with her each weekend. She was never pushy or impatient, even though she ended up showing us over 50 homes with many of our family members in tow! She noticed important qualities about the homes we were looking at – from the condition of the home to access to major transportation routes – Karen quickly provided sound facts to help us make the best decisions.

When we found our dream home, Karen made the buying process a cinch. She coordinated important paperwork and due dates, making it easy for us to prepare for one of the most important purchases we’ll ever make. We feel confident recommending Karen to any buyer or seller that comes our way – she’s truly the best of the best! ”
– Leah & David, Arlignton & Woodbridge


” Working with Karen was an excellence experience. She made my home buying process relaxed and enjoyable. I continue to recommended her to all of my friends who are looking to buy. I have the utmost respect for Karen because she was honest and ALWAYS had my best interest at heart. ”
– Rachelle, Alexandria & Burke


” Karen helped me find a great place, within a mile from my workplace, and at a price I can afford…all in the middle of the biggest housing boom in history! To top it off, she did it all within a 30-day window! I felt well-informed throughout the entire process and I was confident in my decision when I signed the bottom line. ”
– Amy, Alexandria


” Starting a new job and moving to Virginia was an exciting (and stressful) experience. The need to find housing on short notice made the move feel rather formidable. Karen’s skills as an experienced realtor, however, made the transition far less intimidating. She was very familiar with the area on a large scale, and well-versed in local details such as school systems and community information. Thanks to her professional and timely assistance, we are now comfortably enjoying our time here in Virginia. Thank you, Karen! ”
– Alan & Family, Woodbridge


” Working with Karen was wonderful. She really listened to what I needed and wanted in a home, and was very patient with this newcomer to the Northern Virginia housing market. She’s more than an agent, she’s a friend! ”
– Kristy, South Riding


” Even though I was a first-time buyer, Karen was able to make me feel at ease with her knowledge in real estate, professionalism and positive attitude. Whether or not you’re a first-time buyer, I definitely recommend Karen. ”
– Rich, Alexandria


” You could not ask for a more down to earth, helpful, and courteous realtor than Karen Parker. She participates and guides you through every step of buying a house, by supporting and informing you with all the essential information you need to make an informative decision. Karen Parker went above and beyond to help us purchase our first home together and she took away virtually all the stress that buying a home can bring on. I would highly recommend Karen Parker to anyone who is actively house hunting, for you will not be disappointed. ”
– Lauren & Eddie, Woodbridge


” As first time home buyers, my husband and I were looking for an agent who would guide us through this process – Karen absolutely did that for us! She was very responsive, always cheerful and extremely patient (we saw over 30 houses before we found our perfect match). Based on what we had heard, we expected the home-buying process to be complicated and stressful, but Karen made it very easy. I would definitely recommend Karen to anyone buying/selling a home. ”
– Rucha & Puneet, Fairfax


” Karen Parker is a must in this increasingly precarious housing market. With her guidance, we were able to sell our home in days not weeks and months like our neighbors. She is prompt, thoughtful and always seemed to be one step ahead of the process. It was a very satisfying experience and we strongly recommend her! You will not be disappointed. ”
– Sean & Jayne, Fairfax & Arlington


” Karen Parker is simply the best! We’ve worked with her for over four years on rentals, selling our townhouse and buying our single family home. We had a hassle free sale of our townhouse in record time and above our asking price. Our rentals were exactly what we were looking for in the area we wanted and within our price range. The search for our single family home had a few challenges and Karen found us the right home in the right neighborhood for the right price. Thanks Karen! ”
– Lisa & Eddy, Leesburg


” Karen Parker did a great job for us! She came in to our house; told us what changes needed to be made to get our price and to sell quickly; and even went to Home Depot with us to pick out improvements to put in. It paid off. We thought it would take us months to sell because of the down market. Instead, we sold our house in just 21 days. That quick sale allowed us to get in on a great deal for our new home ? saved us money and got us even more than we hoped for in the new place. ”
– Annie & Gary, Woodbridge


” We dragged Karen to dozens and dozens of homes, and she always made us feel like we were her only clients. When we finally found “The One”, she made it a joyous occasion, as well as completely pain free. We turned our trust over to Karen entirely and it paid off: she guided us through every step of the process, from negotiating the price to landing the mortgage to getting the right inspector. She took care of all the little details so we didn’t have to. Karen became our friend in the process, a trusted ad-visor who also took the time to get to know us and to know what would make our family most happy and comfortable. She even had great suggestions for decorating! Karen does it all, and makes it all feel fun, not stressful. Just can’t say enough good things about her. ”
– Michelle & Satu, Arlington


” As first time home buyers, Karen Parker expertly guided us through the entire process! She was patient, diligent, and thorough from the first house to the last. Karen understood that we weren’t just looking for a house, but rather a home to begin our new family. We have nothing but praise for her professionalism and highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase their new home. ”
