Karen really should be your only choice for your real estate needs.
Experts say that real estate transactions rank on the list of the most stressful events in life, among death and divorce. If you have experienced any of these traumas, you know that you will want to be as well prepared as possible. Karen Kern is exactly the agent to meet all of
From the beginning to end, she was a complete professional. Karen is well informed about current trends and the neighborhood market. She is trustworthy and organized. With many years of experience, she has developed strong negotiation skills. Her calm demeanor is an extra benefit. Karen has an arsenal of experts that she can access when the need arises. Believe me and don't be naive, you will need some. We were faced with an extremely unique situation and she wanted to make sure that we were protected. She consulted with legal counsel throughout our journey to ensure that this happened. This was so appreciated! You will never be guessing about the status due to her consistent communication. However, if you do need to get in contact with her, she is easily accessible.
I have worked with other realtors in the past and never experienced such passion and personal investment to make sure all goes well for her clients. Her attention to details was evident throughout the process. Karen even provided staging items when needed. She gave us an action plan and organized notebook, complete with vital documents and information for our records. I've seen her pull weeds and even brought along her own leaf blower for extra curb appeal! Throughout the the process, she surprised me and was a complete delight. Karen really should be your only choice for your real estate needs. Consider yourself lucky, if you get the opportunity to work with Ms. Kern. She will have you and your family packing up and on your way, before you know it!
Karen was wonderful and I will recommend her to all my friends
Professional, always on time, thorough with everything. Prepared. Good Negotiating skills

We just love, Deelyn. Outstanding!
She is our realtor for life.
Showed us many, many, many properties.
Diane was fantastic.....
She was very responsive and was always acting in our best interest as buyers. Diane was very responsive and understanding of our plans for purchasing a property. Having moved to the area from out of state, Diane was a great resource for the local area and the real estate purchasing process.
Rebekah was very knowledgeable and informative
had our interests in mind..everything was very well done.
Julie was great....
Helped me narrow my search and find the right property. Her knowledge of the area and specific neighborhoods were invaluable.
Denise was the best!
This was my first home buying experience. Denise answered all my questions and took care of so many things that I was thankful that I didn't have to do. She was patient with me, as I am somewhat impatient and intense. She was always reassuring and helped me to understand. She's the best!
Anthony & Lisa Garrison
Deelyn was amazing!
She was definitely an advocate for us throughout the whole process and attentive to every question or concern that we had. The best compliment we can give is, after this whole process, we consider her our friend. We would highly recommend her to anyone serious about selling their house or purchasing a future home.
Nick R. Louridas
Gary was always able to reassure us....
during those few times when the real estate transaction was slightly "off course". Cannot think of a single thing that Gary could have done more professionally. We were completely sastisfied & would recommend both Gary Smith & Sally Kerner.
Paul & Faith Sears
Tammy was everything we could have hoped for!
Tammy took care of things for us because we were out of town. Going by the house and suggesting people that could assist in taking care of problems. Tammy was very responsive.
Deelyn has excellent knowledge of current real estate market.
House went under contract within 9 days of original listing! Excellent knowledge of current local real estate market, timely and effective marketing of our home, great networking skills with outside realtor to bring to our home.

Fords Colony, Williamsburg
The fact that our home sold quickly is a testament to our agent
Got the home on the market for the correct buyer. Responded to every question and concern we had.
Doris & Harvey Margulies
Denise is easy to talk with & is a skilled negotiator.
Denise came into my home and photographed the entire house for listing and presentation. While I had a lovely house she was able to make it look much better with her skills in taking pictures and presentation content in the pictures. She is easy to talk with and is a skilled negotiator. I have recommended her to several people and she is currently listing houses as a result of the good work she did for me in selling my house quickly and at almost full listing price.
Diane was a pleasure to work with.
The brochures she made were fantastic! She made good suggestions to ready my house for sale and did print advertising right away which brought some clients into my house. Her photographer took pictures that showed off my house. She was very professional and a pleasure to work with!Everything was done very quickly and efficiently. She always responded right away to my calls/emails/texts.
Deelyn knew the market she was talking about.
Knew how to advise without being overbearing
Gary was wonderful!
He was very good at listening to our concerns and was always responsive to our requests, no matter how last minute. We appreciated his professionalism and it was most apparent when he showed a home, really letting the home "show" itself. He answered our questions honestly based on his experience and knowledge of real estate. This is refreshing for a buyer who is already inundated with choices and needs a realtor who is reliable and doesn't go straight to a "sales pitch."Because Gary has done work on his home, himself, he can offer great tips and ideas on how to go about improving older homes. We were specifically looking for, and ended up purchasing, a home in Queens Lake where Gary lives. Since these are older homes, Gary showed my husband in and around his own property to show the work he had done! Very helpful! Thanks Gary!
Justin & Stephanie Forbes
Karen was amazing.
Easily the best and most competent real estate agent Iâ€™ve worked with. She was the third or fourth agent I talked to on the phone and the only one that seemed interested in finding me a house. She immediately inspired confidence because she was able to talk knowledgeably about properties I had already started looking at. Within the hour she followed up with amplifying information. I was coming from out of town and she was able to work with my schedule and what was most convenient for me. Got me a great price on the home I bought; well below both appraised and asking price. Throughout the home buying process she was always available whenever I had a questioN. She handled everything very professionally and in a competent manner that far surpasses the norm. Canâ€™t say enough good things about her.
I was incredibly impressed at how Tony...
While I knew Tony was doing a great job in helping us find and buy our dream home, it wasnâ€™t until a few months later that I truly appreciated what an outstanding job he had done. Shortly after Tony helped us get into our dream home, I had to go through the process of selling our former home in Northern VA. While the real estate agents up there did an admirable job, the depth of knowledge and attention to detail that Tony had brought to the job really jumped out at my wife and as we worked with other agents. He was able to use his former military experience to really focus on the nitty gritty attention to detail issues while also being incredibly deft and understanding in dealing with clients who are going through an incredibly stressful process. In a perfect world and hindsight being 20/20, Tony could have read my mind and realized that I really wanted a house in Toano and presented my wife and I with that possibility from the beginning.
I appreciate Deelyn...
her quick responsiveness, and incredible organization and customer service. I will always come back to Deelyn. On top of the next piece of the process, always. Quick to communicate, and with top-notch marketing and handouts. Not to mention, she had my townhouse under contract in less than 2 days! She did outstanding, wouldn't change a thing. Deelyn and Christie are a fantastic team. I very much enjoy working with both of them.
Sally was excellent all around!
All around excellent work! Even when we were not approved Sally kept working with us and found a company that would finance us!

Colonial Heritage, Williamsburg
Diane was super responsive.
We never would have found or purchased our dream home without Diane getting to know our tastes, our financial situation and negotiating a deal that we didn't think was possible. There was no pressure and she was super responsive to all our needs. Would definably recommend her to all my friends and family.
Deelyn did a great job !!
She found a beautiful home and sold my house with great service !!!

Villages Of Westminster, Williamsburg
Toby literally took care of everything.
Before I even asked about steps in the process, it was already done. It removes a lot of the worry when the realtor is working on things behind the scenes for you even on the days we didn't communicate.
Gary was very easy to communicate with...
He was extremely available during the buying process.
Deelyn was outstanding on all issues
She put us at ease, knew what we were looking for and found us the perfect house. She is a joy to work with. She assessed our needs quickly and found us the perfect house. She was such friendly person which made a stressful time actually fun.
Marilyn and Ron Newton
Heather was Outstanding
Brandi managed every step of the process
Brandi assisted us through both our home sale and new home purchase. The purchase was a particularly intricate contract negotiation, and Brandi managed the process and negotiations exceptionally well. It was a stressful situation for us, but Brandi remained calm and efficient throughout, which definitely helped our anxiety level. Managed the contract complexities, coordinating between the Attorney and the seller's agent the many litterations. Really, there was nothing she didn't do for us.
Deelyn was awesome in staging our house.
Deelyn is an exceptional realtor.
She has the ability to buy and sell houses within all price ranges. Deelyn promptly answers texts, phone calls and emails. She has many positive working relationships with local loan officers, title companies, and contractors. Deelyn is well respected by her peers and colleagues. Scott and I highly recommend her for purchasing and selling homes.
Amy and Scott Zrakovi
We loved our experience with Deelyn.
We loved our experience with Deelyn. The market was pretty bad and we still managed to get a decent price! In a tough market she was reassuring, and she came in and staged the place, which made a huge difference. She was so professional from start to finish.
Heather was such a joy to work with!
She always stayed upbeat and optimistic about our experience and was available around the clock to answer any and all questions about our buying experience, she truly is a one woman show!! She was very patient, always had ideas and new places to show us. She truly handled all aspects of our house buying experience.
None, West Point
Brenda was lovely in every way with us:
organized, informed, and flexible, she was an absolute joy to work with. She worked on the weekend so we could close on a house in a highly sought after area. If she didn't, I am convinced someone else would have grabbed it up before us!
Grayson was Outstanding!
Tony is an excellent realtor who went the extra mile for us.
The most valuable was that he helped us view homes by working with our daughter.
Cyril gave us prompt communication
Diane was always available.
Diane was always available when ever we had a question or concern.

Andrea was absolutely wonderful to work with!
She is a talented realtor and a lovely person - I would recommend her to anyone/everyone! Andrea is incredibly responsive, intuitive, and knowledgable. I appreciated her straightforwardness and positive attitude in addition to her guidance. The excellent rapport she has with those she works with, as is evidenced by the positive interactions we witnessed during this process, greatly benefitted us as her clients. She did it all!! Andrea is a dedicated realtor, and did everything within her power to assist and advocate for us. We could not be more thrilled at the results of selling and buying homes with her.
