Karen Schaefer Specializing in Southern Colorado Real Estate

Client Experiences

was coming from out of state, so only had a few visits to Colorado to find my ideal home. Karen listened to, and more importantly understood exactly what I was looking for and didn’t waste any time showing me homes that didn’t fit a majority of my wish list. She was very attentive to what I liked and didn’t like about each home and within two outings was able to find the PERFECT home for me. She was extremely patient with my questions and super helpful in every step of the buying process (even helping me with questions I probably should have directed at my lender). Karen is friendly, knowledgeable and fun. I have been, and will continue to highly recommend her as a buyer’s agent (she found me such a great house, I may never know how she does as a seller’s agent, but if the time ever comes, she will be my first choice).” Paul Lisowski, Divide, CO

Karen was such a pleasure to work with. I have worked with many realtors over the years and Karen stands head and shoulders above the rest. We were out of state buyers and she able to give us excellent information about the Woodland Park and CO Springs area and was patient with our many specific and difficult requests as well as the many showings she helped us with. She was always responsive to any and all questions and her years of experience really shined through as it came time to close. I highly recommend Karen, whether purchasing for your primary residence, vacation home or investment property.”, Patrick, Woodland Park, CO

“Karen is the most knowledgeable real estate agent that I have met in the Woodland Park area. Although I was not looking for a real expensive home, she treated me as if I was. She truly put my interests first every step of the way. I now consider Karen a good friend and would recommend her to anyone. She was always there after the sale to help advise me on area contractors etc. I cannot say enough good things  about Karen.” Sincerely, Charlie Estes

“My thanks to Karen on an ‘as promised’ deal that she would sell the home in a timely fashion.…she said she would sell the house and within 14 days after contracting her she did. Two Realtors prior who didn’t sell my home, could not compare to Karen’s expertise and loving care she took to sell my home. Thank you, Karen.”
Ron Bennett, Woodland Park Co

“Karen, just wanted to drop you a note to say what a pleasure it was working with you! Wish all deals could be that delightful! Thanks for all of your help and hard work 🙂 “

“Dear Karen, I want to express my sincerest appreciation to you and your RE/MAX® Team for your consummate professionalism throughout the entire sales process for my property. Your total, focused commitment beginning with your initial analysis in establishing the right and fair price to sell, complimented by your exceptional, continuous conmmunication during the entire procedure leaving no stone unturned, and culminating with the final sale and closing in record time, especially in a struggling market, is truly remarkable. Receiving two realistic, legitimate offers, within just a few days after staging and listing the property and concludiing with a final sell price within 2% of the listing price is a clear testament to the proven expertise brought by you and your Team. You answered all my questions responsively and assisted me in making all the right decisions during the selling process. I am very appreciative of your thoroughness and perseverance in addressing every detail making this a very painless process. It doesn’t get any better. You have my strongest endorsement and recommendation for all your potential clients seeking a real estate agent. Thank you so much for all your support.” Pat Lichtenberger, Colorado Springs, CO

”Karen went above and beyond assisting us with our recent home purchase. Besides helping us find our Colorado dream home, she helped with every aspect of settling into a new town. She always was available for phone calls or questions, she spoke personally with our lender and insurance agents. She provides me with community event information as well! We feel we have made a new friend in a small town, not just a realtor, and are so glad we landed in her hands to guide us through this home buying process. Thanks Karen!” Levi and Jennifer Nachbor, Woodland Park, CO

“Karen is straightforward and up front about what you can expect in terms of time frame and price for selling your home in today’s market. She brings extensive knowledge and experience in a variety of types of properties and really knows what it takes to get a home sold through staging and effective marketing. Without people coming to look at the house, you simply can’t sell it! She gets people there! She isn’t one of those people that just sticks a sign in the yard and uploads it to a few Internet sites and waits for someone to show up. I am always impressed by the marketing ideas she comes up with and how to get people through the doors. She is active and aggressive and truly works to get the house sold. If you want someone that takes a real personal approach to selling your house at it’s current value, there’s no one better than Karen… PERIOD. I’ve worked with other agents and even investors, and she’s miles ahead of all of them.” Heather Seitz-Tankersley, Austin, TX

“Karen has helped me with my real estate investments so much over the past years that she is the first call I make when I need advice and help. She is generous with her time and knowledge and helps smooth the process. Real estate can be tricky so having someone I can count on who knows what she is doing makes everything better! The best part is she does it with great smile! Thank you Karen!” Diana Bryan , Manitou Springs, CO
