My husband, Steve and I own a residential building company in Lexington, SC and have been on all ends of the spectrum when buying or selling a house. Not only do we move about every two years, we have built spec homes within our company to sell as well. Our first professional experience with Karen involved her as the buying agent for the buyer that ultimately purchased our personal home. Because of our positive and professional experience with that transaction, we used her as our next personal selling and buying agent. As our listing agent, she started the process by providing us with a very thorough portfolio of previously sold and current listings in our market. She continuously kept us informed and made sure we had feed back after each showing. She was always available and eager to help! Even when we were in a challenging real estate market, we were very pleased with the entire process and the ultimate sell of our home.
“Karen Chandler was officially the first person I met in Columbia, SC.
When my wife, Mary Kathryn, finished school in Greenville and decided to accept a job offer in Columbia, SC, the first thought that came to mind was that we were once again moving to an unfamiliar place with no friends. Well Karen changed all of that. When the house hunting began, I called several realtors trying to schedule appointments but mainly leaving messages with most. The only realtor who returned my message was Karen Chandler. . . and she returned it the same day I called.
Over the coarse of the next two months, Karen showed us more than 60 houses all over Columbia and Lexington while giving us a grand tour of the cities along the way. She even made time to take Mary Kathryn's parents to visit our top choices. Karen was very knowledgeable of the market and answered all of our questions thoroughly. She was always punctual, kept to her schedule, returned calls and emails in no time, and even accommodated our schedule when in between closings and meetings. On top of being great at her job, Karen enjoys doing her job. She loved meeting us and getting to know us. We loved the days we were going to look at houses not just because we were excited about becoming a new home owner but because we got to look at these houses with a true professional who we loved spending time with. Karen took all of the hassle and worry out of the entire experience. She truly made our only job to decide on a house and she took care of the rest.
Thanks Karen for all your hard, time consuming work. We love our new home and new city.”
