We would recommend Kara to anyone that is looking at purchasing a home. She was quick to respond to any of our questions and I always felt like my needs were being taken care of. She is also very down to earth and easy to converse with. She knew what we were looking for in a home and she made sure to find the best matches for us. Kara is very dedicated and will go above and beyond to ensure her clients happiness.

I absolutely would recommend Kara to anyone thinking about buying a new home. She made me feel comfortable right from the beginning of the process. We are so lucky to have found such an honest, fun, and dedicated professional to help us with our real estate needs!

Kara Chen is incredibly friendly and great to work with. She was very helpful and explained to me the ins and outs of home buying, since I am very new to this!

My fiance and I were first time home owners and completely terrified of the process. I contacted Kara to look at a house we were interested in, and she took the reigns and led us to our dream home! We were planning a wedding and working a lot of overtime throughout this time period, and thanks to Kara Chen buying our home was the least amount of my stress. Kara took care of all of the hard work and updated us consistently on the progress. I can’t say enough great things about Kara, and i highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy/sell a house with minimum stress.

Exceptional service all the way!! My wife and I were hunting for a house about a month ago to relocate from NJ to PA. We were very nervous at first as there were so many unknowns. Our best move was to have Kara as our agent. We were off to a good start! Kara offered so much comfort by providing her professional service and impressive local knowledge. She responded to our questions immediately, guided us through the whole process: from house hunting to closing. We’ve closed the deal yesterday and are now in the process of moving into our new home. Thanks Kara! Keep up the great job!

Just wow. I was moving from out of state and cold-called Kara to ask if she could show me houses for a week while I was in town. She made time for me immediately and showed me every house I wanted to see. When I hadn’t found one and went back to my home state, Kara went and looked at houses FOR ME when I was interested in them. She took pictures and facetimed tours for me, and I ended up buying a house I had never seen… because I trusted her. I trusted her because she had really listened to me and gotten to know what was important to me, and she pays a lot of attention to details of a house. I thought I was picky, but Kara will notice every tiny detail about a house and point them out. I loved that. Kara is the most responsive person, too. If she didn’t know the answer to one of my questions, she would call someone that instant and find the answer. She called me at least daily when we were finding a house, and was always available via text and email. I couldn’t have been happier with my experience. Once you meet Kara, you’ll be friends forever.

Kara is amazing! She worked tirellessly to help my wife and I find and buy our first home, and did so with poise and professionalism. She is very intelligent and knowledgeable, and helped to answer any questions we had, but was never too pushy or overbearing. She was always available, and getting in contact with her was as simple as calling, emailing or texting her – she was extremelly promt in getting back to us, which is so very important when trying to buy a house and make important decisions quickly in the fast paced world of real estate! She is very kind and easy to work with, yet also willing to negotiate with the opposite party in order to get the best deal for her clients! She did an incredible job getting us just the right house, and we couldnt be more happy with it. I would highly reccomend her to anyone looking for a house In Hershey or the surrounding area – you wont be dissapointed!

Kara Chen was awesome! She is so knowledgable and helped us find a house that was perfectly fitting in just one weekend! Having to move across country is always nerve-racking and you just anticipate things going wrong.. Not with Kara. Hands down the best realtor we have ever encountered. We would recommend her to anyone! If you want someone who tailors to your needs, is very responsive and super good at what she does, use Kara! We absolutely loved her and give her ten stars. Thanks Kara!

I had contacted Kara because we were relocating 1.5hrs away for a new job. Kara interviewed and selected a realtor local to me and over seen the entire process of selling my house. Her insistence to perfection in the marketing and internet presence of the house directly related to a really fast sale at the end of the season. When it was time to find our new home, Kara was very knowledgeable of the market in the Harrisburg metro area, and she was very prompt in any questions, paperwork, offers, requests, etc. Whwn we found the house we wanted, she was awesome at negotiaiting and keeping us in the loop on what was going on. I would highly recommend Kara to anyone, and will definitely use her for any real estate deals in the future!

I can not even put into words how happy we are that our house is now under contract. We thought that we would never be able to sell it. We even rented it for a while which wasn’t the best of experiences. We to it on the market late in the summer and now in now time she has sold it for us. At the price we where looking for. We had it on the market before, but no offers. It pays to hive the right agent. Thank you again Kara

We requested information about a prospective home on Zillow and Kara responded within an hour or so. From the very start, she was courteous, professional and friendly. Kara quickly became more than just our realtor, but a trusted friend as well. She was on time for appointments and got excited about the things we got excited about with each home we looked at. Every question we asked about each property was answered thoroughly and quickly. Kara gave us a referral for a wonderful mortgage company. She also moved quickly once it was time for us to put in an offer on a house we were super excited about. Another offer came in at the same time and she quickly offered advice on a counter offer that ended up being exactly what we needed to have our offer accepted. Kara is a genuine, kind, spiritual woman who is all about finding people their dream homes. We would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a home or selling a home. She is very skilled and knowledgeable and loads of fun. We have already recommended her to some of our closest friends.

Kara was the EASIEST to work with. She made the selling of our house so smooth and easy. I would recommend her as a realtor over and over again. She is easy to get along with and very accessible at a moments notice.

Having Kara as our realtor has been a true joy. She took over the sale of our home after it had been on the market with another realtor for over a year. We were pretty hopeless and discouraged, our home was in a flood plain. But with in a month Kara had competing offers on our property. Kara always maintained a positive but honest attitude, and she made us feel like our home was truly valuable. This shined through in her marketing and negotiating. When it came time for us to look at our next home, we realized we couldn’t do it with out Kara. We had always thought: “we’re intelligent people, we don’t need a realtor when we buy a home”. Wrong, we didn’t know how much we needed a realtor, until we had Kara. Kara’s attention to detail, market knowledge, and negotiating skills put us at the front of the line in bidding on our dream home. We are beyond thrilled. I would recommend her a hundred times over to any one thinking of buying or selling a home. We just love her!

Kara was wonderful every step of the way. Answers were provided to our many questions with honesty and a precise knowledge of real estate. She kept in constant contact and made process as quick and painless as can be. Highly recommend !

Kara is an excellent real estate agent. She is there to answer your questions and always available. She has an extensive knowledge of current market trends and guides you step by step to get your in the process of buying a home. She has a great team working with her & I would definitely recommend her.

5 lbjlvc

She is an amazing professional that will work with you to find a house. I am really happy with my experience and the result. It was my first time buying a home and had stupid questions that her and her team would respond to quickly and answer in details. There are always things that move fast and change at the last minute because there are moving parts with a lot of people and mistakes happen but the speed and level of professionalism going into resolving issues were stellar. Really happy and will go back when the time for a realtor is needed in the future.

Jaidi and Kara did an awesome job! They were quick to answer all of our questions. They took a lot of stress off of our shoulders. We would recommend them to anyone who is looking to sell a home!

We really enjoyed working with Kara’s Team. From the first phone call we knew that we were in great hands. She was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. She was able to set us up with Joseph, who answered all of our calls and texts no matter the hour–so helpful! We were in a bind to find a home quickly and they definitely accommodated all of our needs. They were able to show us 15 houses in one day on such short notice since we were only in town for one day. We even had to travel to the area again to look at more houses and they did it no sweat. We honestly couldn’t believe how great they were to work with. Once it came down to finding the house we wanted, the negotiations were great. We were in great hands and treated like family the entire time. It was such a great experience and we would recommend them to anyone.

Kara is THE GO-TO realtor. She guided us through the process and saved our skins by helping us realize how much better a specific neighborhood where we were looking to buy was for us. She was even on vacation overseas and we still received immediate response from her…which probably meant she was responding to us at 2am her time. Kara was amazing!

5 djmalm

Kara was a wonderful help in our first experience buying a home. She was very patient with our lack of knowledge and understanding in the process and was skilled at understanding our wants. Her calm competence was very reassuring for us given that we had several significant life events happening in tandem with the home buying process that greatly contributed to our stress. The great experience we had buying a house is all because of Kara and her team. We recommend Kara without reservation.

5 justjenn805

To say she’s one of the best in the business, is an understatement. Her dedication, patience and obvious love for her work is extremely evident. We were first-time buyers and rightfully so, very scared of the process. kara held our hands the entire time, fought for us when required and got us our home at an amazing price! She ruthless when needed, gentle, understanding and willing to go the extra mile (or ten) to guide you towards your perfect home. I am so grateful she came into our lives and you should look no further. She is truly amazing and a wonderful person to boot.

5 zuser20160409063600021

Very helpful and patient with our life events and unique tastes. We saw many homes together but we also reviewed many homes online and got great information on homes so that we could filter some out. it made our searches more effective. Thanks Kara!

5 zuser20170202075655027

Kara expertly guided my wife and I through selection and purchase of our first home. She promptly and knowledgeably addressed all of our questions and worked with our seller and our seller’s agents to ensure that all parties always had current information. Kara always maintains a collected, calm demeanor which is an essential tool for clear communication. I give Kara my highest recommendation without any reservations.

5 dietrichs

Kara earned the nickname ‘hustler’- she seriously helped me to look at several homes, (always quickly and on my schedule, and she was available 24 hours a day as I made life-changing decisions. To say I was completely impressed, is an understatement. She walked me through homes, talked me through pros/cons, problem-solved, laughed with me, and didn’t mind what I looked like or how I dressed throughout the entire process! She’s professional, she’s connected, she’s knowledgeable, patient and sweet. She cares about those she works with – and has a great teammate in Jaida. They are the whole package! Sheila Dietrich

5 mskrsna

Kara and Jaidi were pleasure to work with and especially coordinating across the multiple parties and getting the things done. Most importantly Kara is a great negotiator and represents everyone fairly. Kara is great at using the latest technologies and is very responsive – very much needed for clients who are very busy. Absolutely recommend Kara and team.

Kara Chen was recommended to my husband and I for finding our new home from other local families. From the minute I found her to today, I couldn’t have asked for a better realtor. Kara had my options set out in front of me within hours, set up viewings that I found on Zillow also within hours, and showed us all the houses we wanted to see. She sent me emails of itineraries of which houses we were going to see and when- based on location. We saw houses at 8:30am and 7:00pm. She never gave up on our process and continued to find more options for us. After every showing- she sat down and went through what we liked and disliked in detail. By the end of our process- she could read our minds without even talking. Ultimately- she led us to our dream home for our next chapter in life. The process of negotiating was seamless. She knew exactly what she was doing- told us where to begin (we are first time home owners!) and never once made us feel inferior with decisions. When signing the contract- Kara made the process seem effortless. She made to-do lists for what we needed to get done and when. Any worries as a first time hone owner- went out the window with working with Kara. Kara made my husband and I feel like we were her only clients. Everything was done quickly, scheduled efficiently, and ran smoothly! We would highly recommend Kara to anyone trying to find their dream home!

It was an absolute pleasure working with Kara. Once we reached out to her, she immediately got in touch with us and got us all setup with her listing system so we could rank houses we were interested in. Since we were moving from NC to PA we knew it would tough for us to come up for showings and Kara was very accommodating to us. There was one house in particular we were interested in that had just dropped it’s price significantly but we couldn’t make it up for at least a week to see it so Kara arranged a video walkthrough with us. Even though that house ended up not meeting our needs, it also gave Kara a chance to hear what our thoughts were so that when we came up the following weekend to see a handful of houses she had a much better understanding of what we were looking for. We were lucky enough to find the perfect place on that visit and she expertly guided us through the process of putting in an offer and handling all the negotiations for us. When our mortgage lender started dropping the ball, she had a great referral for us that ended up being the perfect fit and it was a smooth sailing process from putting in our offer to closing. Even when we ran into some issues on the day of closing (a major miscommunication between the Seller’s Agent and the Sellers) she handled it with grace and confidence. I would HIGHLY recommend Kara to anyone who is looking to buy a home in the Hersey area.
