A. K.      Home Seller​  2017

Karen knows how to market, and how to close a deal - she's the best of the best.  What's more, she made the process so easy for me, managing contractors to repair the house, emptying the house of stuff, communicating well at every step.  Kellianne, on the team, can be like your right hand and most of your left hand - on top of everything and always pleasant.

Aileen A.      Home Buyer​

Karen has been our realtor for over a year now.  My husband and I (and our 3           kids) had specific requirements for a new home.  We almost ended up building a   house because of that.  However, after a year of seeing house after house, and          going through many a bidding cycle, we finally found one.  Karen has been such a huge help, with all her knowledge in the real estate market.  She knows everyone, other realtors, contractors, home builders, mortgage brokers, you name it!  It was like one stop shopping.  The best thing about Karen is her honesty and loyalty to her clients.  I never trusted a realtor until I met her.  It's not a surprise that she is rated one of the top 3 producers in the Lamorinda area.  We were lucky to have had the pleasure of her representation and now her friendship.  Our whole family thanks you, Karen!​​

Rola S.      Home Buyer  2016

I LOVED working with Karen and this is why: 
1- she found our home in Walnut Creek, in no time. 
2- she made the whole buying process as less hectic as possible. 
3- her clients needs and specification are always her top priority!
4- very responsive and friendly. 
5-  she's very knowledgeable  and   confident when it comes to real estate market, especially in Lamorinda  area.

We were thinking of moving across the tunnel from Oakland, and first met Karen at an open house. We immediately appreciated how she was accommodating but not pushy when it came to contacting us or scheduling showings. One of Karen’s best qualities is that she is an excellent listener, and really helped us see only homes that fit our wish list. She was always available for consultation and worked tirelessly on our behalf.  What really set Karen apart was her willingness 

to get the best deal for us, as opposed to the most expedient arrangement.  In fact, we were so happy with Karen’s service that we asked her to help sell our Oakland Hills home. And we were not disappointed, selling it for asking price in an extremely tough market! We would enthusiastically recommend Karen (and we have!). She listens, she works hard, and she puts her clients’ interests first!

For as long as I have worked with Karen, I have always found her work ethic, client service, and knowledge of the real estate market to be top notch. Her ability to help her clients through a transaction in an often hectic environment is consistently shown and implemented with the utmost care. Karen is a true professional and I recommend her with the highest regard.​​

Artem F.      Home Buyer​  2017

Karen helped me purchase a house in Pleasant Hill. She and her team were very professional, prompt, and knowledgeable. We would not be able to get this house without Karen - and she helped us make the whole process a breeze. Highly recommended!

Carol F.      Home Buyer

We worked with Karen for a long time before we found just the right home.  She was always reliable with our appointments and made sure to answer our questions.  It was easy to communicate with her and she answered any phone calls or emails. She worked hard to get us as many viewings as possible.  We came to trust her opinions about the neighborhoods as we were from out of the area.  She ultimately negotiated the purchase of our dream home.  Karen has continued to be a good friend, and I would certainly recommend her to others looking for a realtor. 

Jason C.      Home Buyer  2016

Absolute pleasure to work with. Karen was no only fun to work with she was extremely knowledgeable in all areas from negotiating pricing to knowing good neighborhoods with quality schools. She helped me throughout the whole process. The best part was she was always responsive and helped anytime I   had a question or concern. 10 out of 10 would recommend!

Marc F.      Home Buyer & Seller​​

Karen worked with us for several months trying to find the right home in Lafayette, in a ridiculously hot sellers’ market.  She was patient, never once urging us to break our budget, like other real estate agents might to get a quick sell.  We eventually got what we wanted at a price we were comfortable with, which she worked hard to ensure we got.  She then sold my condo unit in Oakland for the price we wanted, even when the market was cooling and a competing unit was selling near us.  She made the best out of a tough situation.  Karen's coordinator is very conscientious and pleasure to work with.​​

Sharon H.      Home Seller​  2016

I got excellent advice from Karen Richardson.  Her remodeling contacts were fast, efficient, and did a great job!. Her stager did an excellent job getting the house ready for sale.  Karen was recommended by my attorney who was handling my dad's estate.  I would use Karen again, and recommend her and her company.

Judy P.      Home Buyer (Mother), 35 year Lafayette Resident

Karen found my daughter and her family the perfect home, in the perfect location, for the right price.  After two years of going to open houses with my daughter without a realtor, we met Karen.  My daughter told Karen what she was looking for and Karen immediately made some invaluable suggestions.  Within days, Karen helped us find the perfect house, negotiated an offer, and ensured that there were no surprises.  Most importantly, Karen made sure that my daughter was making a sound economic investment. ​​Perfect home, perfect location, for the right price!

Michael R.      Home Seller

Intelligent, honest and confident--what else do you need? I had been forced to fire an incompetent psychopath who bungled my MLS listing and failed to have a successful open house because of numerous inaccuracies and overt laziness.  I called Karen because she sold a unit in the same building we were vacating.  She was the antithesis of the other realtor; Karen was forthright, professional, savvy, and furthermore she knew the market so well that her strategies were successful enough to sell our house in 5 days for the price we were looking for.  Her assistant was wonderful and conscientious as well.

Carol Z.      Home Seller

Working with Karen Richardson made my sale of my well-loved 1950 Lafayette Cape Cod home and simultaneous purchase of a beautiful Rossmoor condo as painless as possible. Karen kept me on track with her well-placed referrals to top fix-up specialists and my home got top dollar. Downsizing mid-life is a once in a lifetime event and Karen and her assistant made all the difference with their vigilance and care. I strongly encourage anyone to work with Karen.

Mark S.      Home Buyer

We worked with Karen last year when we bought our dream home with acreage. Karen was wonderful to work with. She had a great interpersonal skills and handled the few issues that came up with a cool head and can do attitude.  We are grateful to her for helping us realize our dream.

Josephine B.      Sales Supervisor at Wells Fargo

​​I've worked with Karen Richardson with several buyers and she has been an excellent advocate for my clients.  She listened to their needs and wants, allowing my clients to have the confidence that they were in good hands during their search to find their dream home.  She is knowledgeable of the market in her area, quick to communicate to her clients of whats come up in the market, works diligently with her team to assure clients are well informed through the process of buying and selling a home.  I highly recommend Karen Richardson and her team!!

She really goes the extra mile for her clients. Trying to find a home for our family in Lafayette was no small challenge (big family and a budget to stay within). Karen is smart, proactive and knows Lamorinda inside and out. She and her team thoroughly understood our needs/objectives/aesthetic and showed extraordinary patience and creativity to help us find a wonderful house. We are thrilled!​​

Testimonials

Melcor Homes.      Home Seller​ & Builder  2015

I met Karen during a sale of a previous property.  She is professional, personable, and actively makes deals work.  Karen is a sales star!  She brings buyers to the table and represents both party's requirements and value fairly. She was prompt with meetings and communication. I chose to work with her because of her reputation and professionalism. 

Erin M.      Home Buyer​​   2014

I am a lifetime client!  From the day I met Karen it was clear that she builds trust with her clients.  Over the past 18 months she found my dream home for my family and negotiated a contingent offer with several extensions.  In addition, she found an off market property that I purchased as a rental.  Karen continuously goes above and beyond my expectations and is always available.  Her extensive knowledge of the Lamorinda area is invaluable not to mention the close relationships she has fostered within the community.​​

Troy and Eric B.      Home Buyers​

When we met Karen at an open house, my husband and I immediately took to her.  Her professionalism and knowledge is transparent.  She took the time to really understand how we live, and the type of house that would fit our needs.  We were so discouraged when we first met her, and we were about to compromise on what we wanted.  Karen did not bend.  She found us the perfect home in our price range that met all our criterion by making a single creative suggestion.  We wanted to be in Lafayette, but do not have children, so she expanded our search to include homes in the municipality that did not have Lafayette schools.  Her creativity prevented us from compromising on what we wanted.​​

Karen sold my house and helped me find the perfect house to replace it—and we became friends in the process.  She is smart, super experienced and well connected in the Lamorinda real estate community, all of which helped me get a great price for my property. Her team was all over staging my house, plus they were amazingly helpful in dealing with details of the sale and my new-house purchase. Love, love, love her.

Lisa L.      Home Buyer  2015

Karen found us our dream house!! She never once took us to see a house that wasn't extremely close to an ideal for us. From day one, she understood exactly what we were looking for and only contacted us when she found a listing that fit the bill. 
She never wasted our time and made the buying   process stress-free and seamless. 
I highly recommend Karen and her team.
