Testimonials

I think she did more than was normally required of a broker in selling the property. She is a very hard worker and concerned that the seller is taken care of resulting the best outcome of the seller. She is very highly recommended.

Karen Hollingsed helped me find and buy a house for my daughter with me living in California. What could have been a long, messy process ended up being quick and easier than I imagined. My daughter is thrilled with her new home and I was very happy working with Karen.

Karen is very personable and is familiar with the the outlying area. That is helpful in suggesting potential properties that would be suitable for us. Karen was very familiar with the purchasing process. She was very involved in helping us protect our interests and familiarizing us with North Carolina laws and regulations. She was very attentive to our needs and responded to our concerns quickly. She kept us updated frequently as we were mostly dealing with her from Orlando ,Florida. She was helpful in suggesting things to look for when buying a house in Waynesville , NC. Excellent experience. It was productive and fun! She has a great sense of humor, which added to the fun of looking at properties!

Karen did such an incredible job in finding the perfect home for us. What I appreciated most about Karen was her accessibility. I had many questions and at odd times of the day/night. She was never off the clock! No matter when I asked, she was always quick to respond. This, for me, is priceless. Furthermore, it was easy for us to see how much Karen truly cared about our wellbeing. There are some things which just can't be taught. Passion in what she does, and caring for others are just a couple of the many wonderful attributes which Karen possesses. Thank you so much Karen! You're the best!

Karen went out of her way to accommodate our schedule for the short time we were in the area. Then, she tracked down resources we needed and became our "feet on the ground" so we felt connected with all aspects of the purchase process even from a long distance away. She was only a phone call away. I can't think of one quality lacking in Karen. She is an outstanding agent and our first friend in Waynesville. Karen won us over with her friendliness and knowledge of the local market.

Karen was referred to us by a family friend. She was so great through the whole process at answering our questions and helping us narrow down what we needed vs what we wanted and helped us get what we needed and wanted in the end. She was a delight to deal with, and although I hope to never move again, I know if we do she will be the person we call!

Once Karen understood our needs she worked with us to secure the property. Found her to be friendly and engaging. Glad Karen was agent and found that she was good at brokering our offer to the seller. Although the title search slowed the process for the most part the process went smoothly.

Is there a best time of the year to buy a house?

When it comes to buying a home, there are pros and cons for each season. Generally, the best season to buy a home is in late summer or fall. There are still plenty of homes for sale, but without the intense competition found during spring. Sellers are also known for being a bit more flexible this time of the year. Zillow reports that the highest number of listings with at least one price reduction are found August–September. However, the deeper buyers venture into fall, the less choice is available. If you value choice, and you want more buyers competing for the home you are leaving, spring could be your best season. Ultimately, the best time to buy a home is when you’re financially ready to do so.
