From My Clients
“Buying a house can be overwhelming, but not with Karen Harberg! She walked us through every step of this process and made buying a home totally stress free. This was our second home to purchase with Karen, and I recommend her to everyone I know. There is no one more knowledgeable in this business!”
West University Buyer
“Karen is simply the best! We have used her to buy and sell our homes in the past. We faced a few obstacles starting with the Covid shut down a couple weeks after we listed our home. Karen and her team handled everything professionally and strategically until our home sold. Karen knows the real estate market inside and out. We definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.”
Tanglewood Area Seller
“Karen has helped our family buy and sell several houses and I just could not do it without her. She has such extensive knowledge of the Houston real estate market across a variety of neighborhoods. She is so adept at pricing real estate to sell for top dollar but not sit on the market to get it. We wanted a set amount for the sale of this house and she got that exact amount for us on the very first day our house was listed. The entire transaction could not have gone more smoothly. Whereas some realtors take a less hands-on approach, Karen will tell you EXACTLY what you need to do to get top dollar for your house. Every suggestion she made had a huge impact when showing the home and absolutely helped us secure our goal sales price. We love working with her and will continue to use her for years to come. I always say she is the hardest working woman in the business - she has an incredible amount of energy and endless tenacity on behalf of her clients!”
“We scoured the market looking for a lease on our own. Once we let Karen take over, we got our dream property almost immediately. She and her team handled everything for us, leaving nothing to chance. The attention to detail and personal service were impeccable. I cannot recommend her highly enough for any and all residential real estate transactions.”
Luxury Rental Tenant
“We had the best experience buying our new home. Karen has helped us buy and sell homes for the past 20 plus years. We definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling. Karen and her team know every aspect of the real estate market!”
Spring Valley Area Buyer
“Karen Harberg is not only a dear family friend, but she is also an exceptional real estate agent. Karen has helped generations of our family (my father and now me) find and secure our dream homes. She is completely professional, utterly supportive, and available at each step of the processes of selling a current home and buying a new one. My daughter and granddaughter live with me in our beautiful new home; thanks to Karen, we have been able to improve our quality of life by transitioning to a better home for our unique multi-generational family. I know my own father would be thrilled to know that his dear friend Karen has had a hand in our happiness!”
“Selling our home was NOT smooth sailing, but Karen Harberg made a very difficult situation bearable. The inspection report yielded some surprising findings (with expensive resolutions), which led to a lot of back and forth with the buyers' realtor; fortunately for my family, Karen is the most experienced and competent agent in her field. She helped us resolve all of these issues in the most fair and equitable means possible while remaining supportive to us throughout. If you need a realtor who will represent, support, and go to battle for you, Karen ought to be at the top of your list.”
River Oaks area Seller
“Karen was recommended to me by a very good friend and I am so grateful for her recommendation. We sold our home unexpectedly and needed to purchase something quickly. Karen worked with our time constraints. She put together a list of appropriate properties and we quickly decided upon one. She was efficient, professional, thorough and knowledgeable. Everything I’d ever want in a realtor. Great experience!”
Spring Branch New Construction Buyer
“Karen has assisted me in selling and buying 3 properties over the past 15 years. I have never been disappointed. She has always worked diligently and been extremely attentive, and has always provided excellent advice and insights. Cannot argue with success! And Perry has been a terrific help and has added greatly to overall capabilities. Thank you!!”
Memorial Park / Glen Cove Seller
“Karen is the best! This was our third transaction with her and we would never use anyone else.”
"Karen and Perry are extremely professional and knowledgeable! They held our hands through the selling process. They’re quick to respond and always on top of it! I would recommend them to anyone in the Houston area!"
"I worked with multiple agents. But none of them were like Karen. She was persistent. I put my house for sale with another agent from very famous agency but she couldn't sell my house and I now know why! But with Karen I had multiple offers. Then I wanted to rent my house, again I had multiple offers. I have to tell you, the agency is important, but the agent is more important. I can not explain how much better she was than other agents. You'll see after you try Karen."
"My Husband and I have bought and sold many homes in our 51 years of marriage. We have never had such a positive experience as we had with Karen Harberg. Karen is the most professional and knowledgeable REALTOR® we have ever used. Her tenacity, positive attitude, and wisdom made our 2 experiences fantastic!"
Phyllis and Jack
"Karen Harberg and Perry MacAdams (Karen's assistant) is my "go to" team for residential real estate. They are professional, communicative, and so knowledgeable about the Houston real estate market. Karen and Perry come totally prepared to the first meeting. And they listen to what you have to say. If you want to sell your house as quickly as possible for the highest price, I suggest hiring Karen Harberg. And you get her amazing assistant - two for the price of one!"
"Karen has helped our family with now 10 transactions over the years. Her knowledge and expertise is exceptional. She is always professional and available to help. She goes above and beyond. As always, thank you!"
Home Buyer & Seller
"Karen exceeds expectations in every aspect. She is the consummate professional and has made this a wonderful seller experience. Karen is the person you want on your team!"
"We recommend Karen Harberg without any reservations. She and her agency are top notch. They did a beautiful job of photographing our home, and had a professional video shot of it as well (including overhead drone footage that really gave a feeling for the whole of the yard). It's been a difficult time for sellers in the marketplace - but Karen helped us through it to a successful sale! Very pleased."
"Karen Harberg is an excellent REALTOR®. She is experienced and very knowledgeable about the market. We were very impressed with her expertise and understanding of all aspects of the sale process. She was very responsive and communicated well. We always felt we were in good hands with Karen as our agent."
"Karen and Perry are extremely professional, knowledgable and caring! They made our home buying experience very enjoyable and easy. Their market, neighborhood and community knowledge is superb and they helped us with every little detail of our home purchase. We always felt like we were her priority as their attention to our questions made us feel like valued clients."
"Karen told us exactly what needed to get done to sell our home. She presented us with materials and comprehensive research to help us make an informed decision about the sale of our home. She and Perry were very attentive when it came to our questions and requests. Everyone should hire Karen to sell their home!"
"Karen worked with us with the purchase of our house, then subsequent sale a few years later. Followed by helping us find our forever home. All three experiences of working with her were amazing. She goes above and beyond in every way. She works all hours of the day and is always available. Working with her has enhanced our friendship and we would never dream of using anyone else."
