"My wife and I decided it was time for us to move out of our one bedroom apartment and into our first home. We knew what we were looking for but knew little about the actual process of buying a home. Karen was the perfect agent for us; she provided us with all the knowledge necessary to move forward in the process. We ended up moving very quickly and closed on our home less than 30 days after our offer was accepted. We wouldn't have been able to do any of this without Karen; she was excellent in all areas. We would recommend her to friends and absolutely work with her again given the opportunity."
-Matt & Christy, Chicago, Buyer
"Karen has been more than helpful and has went the extra yard to meet our needs. Great Job!"
-Jeff, Roscoe, Buyer
We first met Karen at an open house she was holding last year. We felt comfortable with her and subsequently looked at some other homes with her. Although that didn't work out we called her again two months ago and this time it did. We especially appreciate Karen's firsthand knowledge of this community and the association that manages the lake. "Things here work on lake time" she stressed to us when we got impatient with the pace of progress. We look forward to making that transition!!"
-D&D, Lake Summerset, Buyer

-Joyce, Lake Summerset, Seller
"Karen helped me every step of the way. Solved all of my concerns about thru out our entire journey. Karen was especially on the job to get the closings to work
I thank the Lord that Karen was my agent
I couldn’t have done it without her"
-Lorna, Huntley, Seller/Buyer
"Karen Pioch was always available through e-mail or phone. She worked very hard promoting the property through open houses and professional photos on the web."
-Shari, Lake Summerset, Seller
"I have recently purchased my first house and could not have done it without the expert services provided by Karen Pioch. From start to finish, Karen Pioch guided me though a smooth and satisfying process. Karen Pioch just gets it. Karen was able to truly understand my needs and make what could be a very difficult and exhausting process into one that is very simple. Karen Pioch is highly motivated, professional and gets the job done so that you don't have to worry about it. I highly recommend that you consider Karen Pioch to lead the way in your next home buying experience."
-Steven, Chicago, Buyer
"Karen took us to see at least 30 houses, possibly more, and each day we went out she had a plan consisting of 5-8 houses we would see that day. As time went on and we saw more houses, Karen clearly understood what we were looking for and began tailoring the suggested showings to our preferences which ultimately led to us buying a house after our first offer fell through on the inspection.
Karen was very helpful inside the house letting us know things that may have to be addressed, how much time/work/money we might have to invest in a house to meet our preferences, comparable listings/sales in the area, a suggested opening offer, and general pros and cons of the houses we were seeing. Karen was also a great person to spend all that time with as she is very knowledgeable, nice, personable, funny, etc. I did not feel pressured to buy a house I did not want to buy.
Karen was also very helpful with the offer, negotiations and closing processes. Karen would always get us documents we needed in a timely fashion including at night, and on Superbowl Sunday, to make sure our offer was in as soon as possible.
Karen is a great realtor and I would suggest her to anyone."
-Patrick, Chicago, Buyer
Karen Pioch represented us with the sale of our home. Other realtors in the area had worked with us and most did little and accomplished nothing. Karen did a great job with advertising, listing information, open houses and continued working until the house was sold. I highly recommend her skills as a real estate agent and her diligent hard work. Please call her if you want to sell your home.
-Elaine Kisser, Lake Summerset
Karen was great. Highly recommended!
-Jim, Elgin IL
"Karen Pioch made us feel comfortable and confident with her. She is very knowledgable of the real estate business. She is professional and at the same time a good friend. She knew we were under pressure to sell because our new house was finished and we needed to close on it. She worked quickly, scheduled two open houses which resulted in a sale.We closed on both houses the same day. We are so grateful for Karens quick work, professionalism and friendliness."
-Jeri & Bob. Richmond, Seller
"She provided excellent comps, was friendly and very easy to work with. My property was under contract in 3 days."
-Stacy, Schamburg, Seller
"I believed her to be honest and capable of handling all aspects of marketing the property. I was not disappointed. Also, she kept me posted on a continuing basis, offered sound suggestions which I followed. Would hire her again and would recommend her to others if the chance arises.
She was tops.
In short, it was excellent."
-Jim, Lake Summerset, Seller
"Karen was great to work with, helping us through the stress of selling. She has a unique marketing approach, different from other local realtors, which helped sell our house. She was always responsive immediately to any communications and we appreciate her hard work on our behalf."

-Colleen, Lake Summerset, Seller
"Karen is an asset to her profession. She is always on top of her game. Her knowledge of houses and real estate, especially of a particular area is one of the best.
