What My Clients Say About Me:


Now I know why they call her "Action Jackson"! Karen worked many hours and many months with us it find our perfect home. It was not an easy 3 month process and sometimes rather complicated, but she took everything in stride, walked us through every step of the process. She is extremely knowledgeable and quite fun to work with! Would recommend her anyway!  Beth

From the get go Karen Jackson was fantastic. This isn't my first home I've sold so being a little more familiar then many on selling a home was immediately impressed with Karen. She was ALWAYS quick to respond to e-mail, great with fielding our questions and she made felt more like a family member assisting us then an agent. It never felt like she had other obligations besides us, and she was extremely focused on helping us sell. I highly recommend Karen and having multiple agents in the past will say with no reservations that Karen stood head & shoulders above them all.    Brian

My experience with Karen was not only very positive but she made it an easy one. As a first time home buyer in a challenging market she broke the process down step by step and made it clear she was always available to answer any questions that might arise. I have a challenging schedule which lead to odd hours for both showings and meetings. I never waited more than 30 minutes for a reply either by phone or email. She checked in though out the process and ensured that I was always comfortable when taking the next step in the process. A very high level of knowledge in all areas of the home buying process and sincerely cares about your home buying experience. Intend to use again in the future.  Elisa

This is the second home i have bought, and Karen made this one stress free! Compared to what i went through the first time. I highly recommend her and will refer my friends to her in the future when they buy a home.I was very impressed. Mark   

I used Karen to both sell and buy simultaneously. Prior to selling, she came out and did an evaluation on my home. I ended up having to wait to sell (about 7 months). She kept in contact throughout that time. Once on the market, she explained how things would go, given the busy market and let me know what to expect. My house sold quickly and I found a new home quickly as well. Overall, great knowledge and a lot of patience! Every little question I had, she responded to. She helped me through every detail. I still call on her from time to time with questions.   Tammy

Karen helped me find a home in Renton in 2008 and listed it for sale in 2016, she was a huge help with the process. She also negotiated a tear down for me which I am now building my new home on. I would recommend Karen highly!  Myra

Karen was very helpful and patient with us throughout the whole home buying process. This was our first time buying a home and she worked with us to help us find the home that what we wanted and that was within our budget. She always got back to us right away whenever we contacted her and was there to answer any questions that we had. She accommodated our work schedule and often showed us homes late in the evening and on weekends. I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for an awesome real estate agent. She goes above and beyond what's expected of her.  Bianca

Karen always returned my calls, emails or texts in a timely manner. Never laughed at dumb questions. In this market I was able to get the first house I put an offer in on and that is just about unheard of. She was a great person to work with!  Susan

We worked with Karen for two house sales and a home purchase. She is knowledgeable and always responds quickly to your questions and needs. She will make your home buying/selling a good experience  Gildyard


"Karen has a great friendly personality and very knowledgeable. She kept looking for housing with my preferences and didn't try talking to me about a different style house or changing my price range. Her knowledge of the area was very good and she stayed in contact with me to let me know how things were going when we finally did find a home, answered all my questions professionally and in terms I understood. I would highly recommend Karen and if I ever choose to sell/buy another home I will definitely call her. She has also stayed in contact with me once a year to let me know how the housing market is doing and just to say hello" Sharon F

"My wife and I were first time home buyers and exited about entering the "buyers market" which existed at the time. We were also a bit naive about what to expect as we began our search. Karen was introduced to us by a mutual friend and guided us through every aspect of the buying experience. Her knowledge and determination during the "hunt", the offers and counter offers, financing and all that encompasses was invaluable and encouraging"  Candi and Bobby T

"My experience with Karen was as a Buyer's Agent and a Listing Agent/Short Sale Agent (while I was out of state). Karen Jackson makes the Real Estate experience effortless and enjoyable. She is highly organized, responsive and professional. I have recommended her to everyone I know!"  Denice R

I"t was great working with Karen. She was on our side 100%, had a whole lot of patience, and found us exactly what we wanted. Her knowledge of the home buying process was excellent and she was always a phone call away. Thank you Karen!" Kendall D

"Karen was always connected to us. She emailed us daily if needed to keep us in the loop about the next steps in the process. If we had questions, she was available. I truly felt like we were in charge of the search and she opened the doors so we could explore options. We highly recommend her for your search!" Paul and Sheri W

"Karen was really easy to work with and was definitely an expert. She handled everything and the process very easy for us. I knew that everything that needed done would be done. I would recommend her to anyone. She is very honest as well." James W

"Karen helped me and my family buy our first home in this area after we had relocated here. Karen is a true professional and knows the local market as good or better than anyone in her field. We are very pleased with the service Karen has provided us with."  Rick and Linda S

"Working with Karen was great. She was so quickly efficient that we enlisted her help on a second property simultaneously! We had multiple offers on both, quick response times from her, and overall, an honest, trustworthy individual to be entrusting big decisions (like selling or buying a house!)". Warren and Jessica K

"Karen was very efficient and found the condo that I wanted and I passed papers and moved in in a short period of time. She was always on time and waited patiently for me once. She seemed very knowledgeable on all aspects of the home." Maryann C

"Very professional, honest and respectful. Karen was able to help me sell my home very quickly when I needed to relocate. She made the whole process easy and smooth." Teri M

"Karen was a pleasure to work with the recent sale of my home. She was professional and prompt in answering any questions I had about the process. I would use her again should I choose to buy another home." Denise K

"Karen has been an amazing realtor!! We have bought our second house now with her and have nothing but compliments to say in regards to her professionalism and friendliness. She is such a great realtor and will bend over backwards to sell your house and/or get you the next house. Anyone struggling to find someone to help you in your home sale or purchase....pick Karen. When we went to sign our final paper work, even the lady working at the escrow office was telling us how on top of things Karen was, friendly, and funny she was. We will be recommending her to all our friends and family. Don't pick her? Your loss really."  Brian and Laura M

Karen did such a great job helping me find a condo. I would highly recommend her for her knowledge and her willingness to show me properties on short notice. It took me months to find a condo I wanted but she was patient and we did it!   Suzanne

I would recommend Karen to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She was very thorough and kept me informed every step of the way. There were a few snags that needed to be taken care of along the way of selling our home but she knew what to do to keep the process on track and running smoothly.   Mark

Karen has been selling homes and working with people to find homes for many years. My clients consistently comment on how well she communicates and how she has exceeded their expectations. If you are looking for agent representation from either side of the table (buyers or sellers) Karen is a great choice. I would highly recommend her services and expertise in this market above any other.  Erin Sweeney
