Client Reviews

If you need a realtor, you should hire Karen! She has assisted me over the years buying/selling 3 homes in different areas of St. Louis. She’s extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the business. She’s responsive and gets things done on time.

Difficult buyer or seller? No problem – I’ve had both, and she’s handled each situation with grace, resolving the problem so as not to delay closing. She also has a good network of contractors who can help with repairs for selling and after buying. A great all around resource. And she fosters homeless dogs!

This review can by summarized with my saying that Karen Goodman is the most knowledgeable, professional, and ethical realtor I have ever worked with. She recently sold my townhouse in a tough market . She accurately gauged the market and drew up a plan.

She made solid suggestions in staging my home with the furniture I already had, and posted photos so beautiful I started to have second thoughts about selling! She guided me through the myriad of hoops a seller has to jump – from disclosures to inspections to repairs to permits. Easy to talk to with great insight into both buyer and seller, she was calm, even encouraging me to delay lowering my price when I was getting nervous. Who has ever heard of a realtor doing that? I can, without hesitation, recommend Karen to anyone looking for an honest, hard-working, intelligent, and delightful agent.
