If you want a stress free process go with Karen!
When my husband and I were looking for a realtor we knew that there were a lot of choices out there and we interviewed a few. Karen came to the interview well prepared about the market and with a lot of knowledge about the area we live in. She helped us set a good price on the market and we were able to get many great offers.
During the process of the sale the corona virus epidemic became a big problem and some deals were falling thru. But Karen was very professional and thought ahead, and because of her great actions we were able to close the deal quickly and both the sellers and the buyers were very happy with the entire process.
Karen was available when we needed her and she was always letting us know of the next steps. If you want a stress free process go with Karen!
Karen Kikalo is absolutely the best
Karen Kikalo is absolutely the best. I am not a real estate expert and I have a job and commitments. Karen helped me sell my townhouse and made it all so much easier to understand. She answered every question and went above and beyond ... from marketing, open houses, answering questions about selling and later about escrow, and helping me through the escrow process. And she did this all with grace and a sense of humor. Karen was with me every step of the way and I am eternally grateful that she was in my corner and on my side.
Looking for a good, professional realtor, I would immediately recommend Karen
This is the first time I have written a review for anyone, or anything for that matter, but my experience working with Karen Kikalo could not go ignored. For anyone looking to purchase a home, the realtor you need to call is Karen. From the very start she was there for my wife and I, from our very first meeting at the open house where she explained what we needed to do to get started, which included the name and number of the lender, to signing the final documents. Karen walked with us the entire way, taking the time to explain everything we needed to know and was extremely patient, especially given the fact that we had an endless list of questions and concerns. Whenever we would call, email or text her she would respond immediately. When we sat down to sign all the initial paperwork and documents, Karen explained everything not only in great detail, but in a manner that first-time homeowners could understand, always making sure we knew and understood what we were signing. If someone ever asks me for the name of a good, professional realtor, I would immediately recommend that they call Karen.

Karen was extremely professional
Our realtor Karen Kikalo in my opinion has what it takes to be your future realtor. She listed our home in Northridge on Friday and we had multiple offers by Sunday!!!
We ended up selling $20,000 over our asking price. She was extremely professional and her personality was nothing short of wonderful.
Our home closed Escrow when she predicted and we received our check 2 days later!
What more could you ask for!
THANK YOU KAREN!!!

Karen is the best teammate
Karen is just about as good as it gets when it comes to real estate agents. As a first time home buyer, I knew there was so much to learn and I did not know how to get started. By the time I saw the listings online, the houses I wanted to see were already sold. After I started working with Karen, no listing slipped by without me knowing! I definitely did not know enough when starting this process. There is so much to do and so many things to remember when purchasing a home. However, with Karen's help I felt in control of this process and every one of my questions was answered.
Karen is the best teammate you can find during the real estate search and especially during negotiations. She found my home and helped me convince the sellers to cancel their upcoming open house and go my negotiated offer. She made every step easy and took time to make sure I understood what was happening. As a detail-oriented person, I tend to get hung up on the little things. But Karen was so patient and kind and never was frustrated by my various question during off hours. Look no further, Karen Kikalo is the real estate agent you need to work with, ESPECIALLY if you are a first-time home buyer. I do not usually write reviews, but her exceptional customer service deserves it. I have recommended Karen to my close friends and family. When it comes time for my next home, I already have her number on speed dial. Thank you Karen for making my first home buying experience wonderful.
Always willing to go the extra mile for you!
Karen is without a doubt the best there is! Always willing to help out with the goal of a successful transaction and there when you need her-- as a seller from out of town selling my mothers home, I appreciated her hands on approach and assistance that was necessary. She is willing to go the extra mile for you!
You won't find anyone more experienced, knowledgeable and pleasant
We just finished our 3rd transaction with Karen and we can honestly say that she has made our housing dreams come true... Again! Karen helped us find our dream home and made the impossible a reality for us! She showed us a house the first day on the market, got us in to see it on the 2nd day, and convinced the sellers into canceling their upcoming open house and taking our offer instead. Throughout the entire escrow process, she made things a breeze by helping us with the paperwork or answering any questions, expediting the escrow process on all ends, keeping all parties happy and professional. She even arranged for her people to do the repairs requested from our inspection of our sold home. She was available any time of day and always responded immediately to any questions I had. She was also our best advocate throughout the process. We have already recommended 2 friends to her, who also have had success in finding their dream homes and were so happy to work with her! We plan to use Karen for our future real estate needs, as we intend to buy more rental properties. I'm convinced we wouldn't be able to find anyone more experienced, knowledgeable and pleasant to work with than Karen!!

Karen made the impossible happen
Karen is the BEST, most honest real estate agent I have ever come across! I have purchased four homes and have worked with several realtors. I met her two houses ago and will be a lifelong client. She is extremely patient and prompt with ALL of my questions via email and phone, and is knowledgeable in all aspects of real estate. She is your best advocate- just the right touch of kindness and assertiveness. I wanted a house in a specific neighborhood and had to sell my house before buying a new one. Karen made the impossible happen. She's truly one-of-a-kind!
