Karen Schwartz is by far the most professional real estate broker we have ever met. She cuts through red tape, explains in a way that educates us about the situation. She is distinctly "on the mark" with timing and very productive in the results department. She has a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyable to work with in any direction. We closed in 30 days on a short sale that we didn't have a clue how to pursue. Thank you, Karen, for using your talents in a respectful and committed approach during difficult economic times.

After my house was on the market over a year, Karen became my real estate agent and within a period of six weeks, the house was sold. She did all the paper work needed, and helped me to prepare for the closing with no complications. She was amazing!

Best real estate broker ever!!! I needed a lot of hand holding thru the process and she was always there for me. Her local knowledge and contacts were extremely helpful. I would use her services again and often call her just for advise.
Jacq May Client, Buyer11/15/2012
If you want knowledge, competence, quick response, advice, attention to your needs, this is the agent for you. She always goes the extra mile to provide information and to assist however needed. She is our eyes and ears on the ground for our real estate investments in the Bradenton area, which we need because we are headquartered in Texas.

We have worked with Karen for two years. She has navigated us through offers on two homes. Although the first home did not pass inspection, we eventually closed on our second offer last spring; a villa in Nokomis. Karen was consistantly meticulous to detail, overseeing important matters when it was time for us to return home and leave the area where we bought our property. During those two years, she was candid in her assessment of potential properties and skilled in narrowing the field for us. She consistently sent us reports on properties and kept in touch with us. Karen researched numerous questions that we had pertaining to the property owner's association, utilities, and other issues that we were unfamiliar with in the area. Her work ethic is excellent. What she promises, she delivers. After the closing, she continued to be very helpful on several issues related to our long-distance purchase. Karen is an A+ realtor and an altogether lovely person!
“As a new Realtor with ERA Wilder Realty- Northeast Office from 2007-2008 I had the pleasure and privilege of working with Karen Schwartz. At the time Mrs. Schwartz was the Broker in Charge for the Northeast Office. She went out of her way to communicate with her Realtors and advise them in any way she could. Her knowledge and enthusiasm helped not only me but all Realtors that worked under her. She went out of her way to ensure we had the proper tools and training that we would need to be successful. Even after all this time and with both of us having moved I still value her opinion and friendship.” June 9, 2011

Carol Hays Client, Buyer04/21/2012
As a recent buyer of a condo, I would highly recommend Karen as a Broker. She is highly informative, loves to please her clients in any way she can, and she is very, very professional. My recent purchase was both pleasurable and she made the paperwork very easy. Karen, you are the greatest!!!

Karen assisted us in purchasing our second home in North Port, FL. She quickly identified what we were looking for and went out of her way to accomodate our needs. We would highly recomend her to anyone looking for an agent.
