Karen Smyth's Reviews & Ratings

Tell us about your experience with Karen Smyth

    • "We chose Karen to sell our home in March of 2010 from a careful screening and interview process. The expectations we set were met with dedication and expertise. The result was a sale of our home in less than 2 months for a top price in our community, closing in May of 2010. Karen knows how to market and list a home to get immediate attention and showings. Every home has the right buyer, but Karen's skills marketed our home to the right buyer, without that there would not have been a sale."

    • My husband wanted to buy our new home on our own. it was apparent that we weren't cut out to handle the negotiations by ourselves. he had mentioned that he could call the wife of a college friend of his. i begged him to call! hiring karen was the best decision we made in the home-buying process. every home purchase comes with its problems, but having karen on our side made the process much less stressful. she takes care of you and your interests like no other!! if you called, she answered. if you emailed, she responded quickly. karen's a no-nonsense agent who gives it to you straight and doesn't waste your time. and the best part is, at the end of the process, i've made a great new friend!

    • My first time selling a house was a wonderful experience because of one person: Karen Smyth!! She was patient, and available with all of my questions and in giving me advice. She gave me the guidance I needed throughout the entire process. The MOST amazing thing for me as a first-time seller in this housing market: the selling process only lasted 8 DAYS......MY house sold in EIGHT DAYS in a horrible seller's market!!!! Thanks again Karen!!!

    • As first time home buyers, we needed someone to guide us through the entire process. Karen answered all our questions and was quick to advise us. Her knowledge of and connection to the Atlanta area is amazing. Without that, we'd still be looking for a new home. Karen was a complete professional who made us feel like we were working with an old friend. She worked above and beyond our expectations. We highly, highly recommend her and will be calling on her in the future.

    • We had the pleasure of working with Karen Smyth and her team on both the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new home. We were interested in moving to Brookhaven and a friend had recommended that we give Karen a call and it was the best thing we did during the whole process. Not only was Karen a complete delight to work with (we felt like we were shopping for our house with a true friend - albeit an incredibly knowledgeable, talented and savvy friend who was incredibly responsive to all of our questions and requests), but we can't emphasize enough what a difference it made to work with someone that had such a breadth of local knowledge about the area, as well as the inherent connections and street smarts that come with being a regional specialist like Karen is. Karen is such a charismatic and sincere 'people person' that can instantly make any person feel at ease and that skill has clearly helped her to be well-liked and trusted by not only her clients but her peers in the industry. With it being such a seller's market with rather limited inventory of homes for sale, we have no doubt that the only reason we were able to purchase the home that we did is because Karen represented us and we had the benefit of her keen insight and experience. Karen also did a wonderful job selling our home which was outside her typical cachment area but she was diligent and dedicated to getting the job done and we were thrilled to close on our old house only a few days after purchasing a new home. We strongly recommend Karen and her team to anyone looking for a realtor -- she is one of the top agents in Atlanta for a reason and you can be assured an extremely pleasant and professional experience if you work with her!

    • A shopping trip to Target one weekend provided us with the good fortune of meeting Karen Smyth. We overheard her in the small appliance aisle working the phone like crazy! It sounded like she was a real estate agent and we liked what we were hearing. She was working hard for her clients and we were looking for a hard worker. We lost her in that huge Target but then low and behold she fell into the checkout line behind us. A few days later she was officially our agent and our short journey began. Short, because Karen sold our house in only 2 weeks! We attribute this to the quality of her marketing materials and market expertise, her relationships in Atlanta and of course a large dose of energy, enthusiasm and hard work. Karen only takes on as many clients as she can effectively manage so that they get 100% from her. The communication channels are always open and she is there for you every step of the way. We didnt have any issues with our closing but know if we had that Karen has the ability to solve any problem. Our house sold so quickly that we found ourselves in need of a rental house and she helped with that too. Thanks Karen! We highly recommend Karen Smyth.

    • "From our first dealings, Karen Smyth impressed me. Shes warm, bright, energetic, passionate and professional. Karen strikes me as the rare individual who will go the extra hundred miles to get the deal done and make her Clients happy.Karen has another quality that is as appealing as it is unique, especially in her hectic profession. She stays in good communication with you. Karen is accessible. If you dont reach her right away, she gets back to you quickly.While most settle for the ordinary, Karen aspires and achieves the extraordinary. That impresses me. Its no wonder shes such a successful real estate agent."

    • When Bob and I first started to consider purchasing our first home (while planning our rapidly approaching wedding) we got numerous realtor recommendations from friends and family, but no one came more highly recommended than Karen. She had successfully sold homes for friends with a continuous reputation for professionalism, exceptional customer service, respect, and a positively aggressive attitude. From our first meeting to our home closing Karen exceeded our expectations. She brought a wealth of expertise to our meetings, recommended our top notch mortgage broker (who got us the best deal in town!), and always kept our interests firmly at the top of her priority list.

      - Patricia and Bob Campbell
    • We chose Karen Smyth to sell our Brookhaven home because of her experience selling homes in our area and because of her technical marketing skills. We were more than impressed with her ability to market the house in many high-tech advertising areas. She is extraordinarily well educated and intelligent yet still has the down-to-earth demeanor which makes everyone feel comfortable and trusting. Her communication with us, other agents, and potential buyers was outstanding. She had our house under contract in a month and closed within two months of listing. In our opinion, she is one of the best agents in Atlanta.

    • Karen was a friend before the househunting began and quickly emerged as an advocate, who patiently walked and supported us through our first home purchase. Her dedication, knowledge and professionalism were always apparent. She has and continues to remain available to us at any time. Our situation was challenging in that we were trying to find and purchase a home around the birth of our second child. Karen was very sensitive to our needs and made it all come together in a timely manner! Her advice around the negotiating process and closing was all most beneficial. For instance, she fought for a homeowner's warranty to be added by the seller and we have already reaped the benefits and saved money when our furnace motor went out a few months after closing. I would highly recommend Karen for either purchasing or selling your home. We will surely utilize her services if/when we are ready for our next move!

    • We originally had our house on the market with an agent who is well known in the neighborhood and sold us on her connections and clever marketing. After 3 months and 3 open houses, very few people had even been through the house, and we were very disappointed with the lack of effort of our agent. Though we couldn't be certain if it was just a slow market or the wrong agent, we decided to switch to Karen because a friend had a very good experience with her, and we suspected she would work very hard to sell our house. That couldn't have been more true. Within 3 weeks of listing with Karen, we had more people view the house than we did in the previous 3 months. While we were on our honeymoon, Karen worked tirelessly, and we came home to an offer the morning after we returned. What a great wedding gift! We ended up getting our full asking price, and I believe that is 100% due to Karen's ability to really sell a property. In this market, that is the last thing we were expecting. We will definitely use Karen again to sell or buy a home. Her work ethic can't be beat.

    • "My wife and I hired Karen to help us sell my condo in Midtown Atlanta after the unit had been languishing on the market for over 6 months with another realtor. Karen walked through the property with us and gave my wife and I very direct and actionable suggestions on how to make the property more marketable. To make a long story short, we had a signed contract in our hands ONLY 13 DAYS after Karen took over as our agent! Needless to say, we were thrilled with the job Karen did for us. We strongly recommend her and plan to use her again in the future. She's great!"

    • "I know Karen from our MBA days at Thunderbird. While I haven't had the opportunity to work with her in her prior capacity in the corporate world or in her current capacity as a Realtor, I have no doubt the determined, tenacious and hard-working ethic that epitomizes her personality will take her to new achievements and goals. I suspect she is already very successful as a Realtor and I wish her the best."
