I cannot say enough positive things about Karen! After disappointing experiences with a few local realtors my husband and I truly struck gold with Karen! We found Karen through her reviews here and called her right away to help us find our first home. Karen was immediately very responsive, asking appropriate and direct questions and returning phone calls and emails with lightning speed!
We purchased our first home in Sedona (sight unseen and from out of state!) thanks to Karen! Karen was more than happy to go tour homes for us and provide us with thorough videos and descriptions of each home she was showing us. Karen is very knowledgeable about the area and the process and guided us through each stage of the process in a very informative, timely and thorough manner.
Unfortunately we didn't realize until about halfway through the process that our lender was an absolute nightmare. Karen handled this difficulty with a tenacity that is absolutely commendable! She would NOT less this deal fall through! Karen was wonderful about buffering us from stresses that we did not need to know about at the time and keeping us in the loop when and where we needed to be.
Karen's integrity and tenacity in handling our home purchase goes beyond mention! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Karen as a Realtor AND as a human being! Karen is truly amazing and I assure you that you will not be disappointed should you select her to help you find your new home!!
When we werewanting to buy a home in
cottonwood early this year, Karen spent days showing us home after home. She set up a portal so when a home came on the market that met our paraameters, it would pop up on my cell phone. One day when she had been showing homes to out of state people all day, a home that we thought looked perfect appeared on our portal.we drove by and immediately knew this could be the one. we called Karen and, even though she was exhausted, she made sure we saw the home that day. good thing too, as the home already had an offer. we ended up buying the home the next day and we LOVE it! Karen knows the area and what areas are better than others. She walked us through every aspect of the sale and made sure we were prepared for every step. She is amazing agent. We highly reccommend her.
I have bought and sold other homes, and Karen is the best realtor I have ever used. She is prompt to respond and listens to what you are looking for and really understood what I was looking for in a property. She also helped me to see things from a different perspective in a way that just helped me to think about things in a way that I maybe wasn't seeing. Moving from California to Arizona and learning about the various areas I had been looking at, she just helped give me information about the various areas so I could make an informed decision. Her vast knowledge and personal experience make a winning combination. She will listen and help guide you to your perfect home.
I started out looking for an inexpensive lot in Rimrock to build my retirement home. I selected Karen as my agent based on her excellent reviews. I got the same prompt, informative responses from here when I was shopping for a cheap lot that I did after I decided that I should buy a house instead. She was very helpful and responded almost instantly to emails, text or calls. She was quick to point out advantages to a property that I would not have known about. And she was equally quick to point out disadvantages that I would not have figured out until I moved in. She was enthusiastic but never pushy with me. She kept the process moving and kept my banker moving so we were able to close on time. Working with Karen made the very scary experience of buying a house a lot less scary. She is a great agent and a really nice person.
We were looking for a realtor we could trust and are so glad we chose to sign up with Karen. Our home sale went smoothly and quickly. Karen always stayed ahead of any potential issues. She kept in near daily communication throughout the entire process.
She is well known and well-liked by all the real estate professionals. Karen had key access to the buyerâs agent, buyerâs lender, the escrow agent, and she had reliable contractors at her fingertips. She is knowledgeable of the market and guided us to an accurate listing price. Karen made essential suggestions to prepare our house for sale. She negotiated quickly and brought us top dollar for our property.
The purchase of our new home has just closed and Karen Melillo was my agent. My husband and I called Karen "Doctor Karen" because she was always on the case. The entire time our new home was under contract, I had total peace of mind because "Dr. Karen" was handling it. Karen was so patient with my husband and with me as we looked for our next forever home and she was tireless in helping us find the perfect fit. Her attention to detail, her commitment to keeping us informed during each step of the process, and her expertise allowed me to relax into the process and actually ENJOY house hunting (yes, you read that right!) and to focus on the "fun" part of buying a new home. Thank you, "Dr. Karen"!
Karen was always available to answer our questions. She handled everything professionally and kept in contact with us every step of the way. She knows the area and helped us make decisions based on our needs. The process went very smoothly.
THANK you Max and Diane!! It was a great pleasure working with and for you! Enjoy your new home!
What can I say about Karen Melillo, but that she is the BEST REALTOR I have ever worked with! She represented me as a buyer in 2013 and in just one weekend we were able to see nearly a dozen properties and I found exactly what I was looking for. 4 years later, she represented me as a seller and she was my listing agent. She never lets the ball drop, never let more than a few days go by with contact, and was very PROACTIVE and creative with marketing. My house sold within 7 weeks of listing for a reasonable and closed escrow in January 2017 for a good price and easy negotiations. Most important about Karen is that she is HONEST and on your side - just as interested in your transaction as you are.
Thank you TONS Nadine! You were the best seller I could ever hope for! Your home was always gorgeous and ready to show. Thank you so much for this reference. It means alot!
When we were looking for a home, Karen set us up with the online listing tailored to our needs and wants so that we could look at possibilities first. When we found homes we wanted to look at she was very efficient in making appointments and setting a route. She is very knowledgable about the area we live in because she has spent many years here. Many times we asked to see places more than once and she was patient and willing to help us out with that. She took the time to learn our lifestyle and what we might want in a house and property (we have dogs!) and she was mindful of these things when helping us find places. We found just the right place and are very happy with our home!
Thank you so much Joyce! It was wonderful working with you and David! :-)
I picked Karen to represent me when I bought my first house in 2014 because I read so many glowing reviews online. And boy am I glad I did! Now, almost three years later she just finished helping me buy my second house. Both have been deatressed properties in foreclosure/pre-foreclosure and both have required a higher than average amount of work, skill and knowledge to navigate and negotiate. Whether you are a first time home buyer or a seasoned home owner, with a straight forward or complex sale, I highly recommend Karen for her expertise and determination. She will take great care of you and advocate for your best interest every step of the way.
