"Early this year while visiting my mother in Palo Alto I saw a handwritten note she had received from Karen Lemcke regarding the value of local real estate. Karen enclosed her card in the event my mother wished more information.
I kept the note and card, which had been hand delivered, because I thought it was a superb marketing effort by Karen, I was impressed.
Sometime later I called Karen and listing the house with her was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Karen is professional in every aspect of the word. More importantly though she is also friendly and takes a personal interest in the listing and the people.
I know that without her I could not ave transacted the sale long distance as we did. She is the absolute best and I will always recommend her to anyone and everyone. If Karen ever needs a personal reference in her real estate dealings she may definitely count on me.
My dealings with Karen was of the highest quality and I shall be forever grateful."

Here are just a couple references so you can see what I offer in full service to my clients.
I would like to thank you you for the extraordinary effort that you have not only put in to finding me my perfect home in Paradise; but all of the extras. You have gone above and beyond to make sure that the house was ready for me, from negotiating for a new roof and supervising the installation, to making sure that the septic tank was not only checked but cleaned and the fireplace as well.
I cannot thank you enough for all that you have done and I have and will continue to recommend you as the Realtor of choice for all that look for quality and integrity.
"Karen was recommended to us by our mother, whose property we were selling…We approached this transaction uneasily since we were letting go of the house we had grown up in since the 1950s… Karen was at my wife's side…driving her to stores for lighting and other hardware, and assisting actively in hiring the stager and other workers to get the house into final selling shape.
Never pushy but always available, Karen's relationship with V.P. at First American Title helped make the financial aspects of the transaction as smooth as possible…During the escrow period Karen didn't let up, continuing to monitor the vacant house for us, and even keeping up the greenery! During the final days she handled all the details of getting mandatory inspection call-outs completed, and even hauled away an old ladder that we'd forgotten at the side yard. Thorough to the point of perfection!"
"I knew when the time came for me to sell my house, I would ask Karen Lemcke to take the job. I knew I could trust her to be honest with me and with the potential buyers.
The bonus for me was her knowledge of the market and the steps required to present my house with the best possible view. She has a network of quality craftsmen and professionals needed to prepare my property for sale. She spent hours coaching me. She always followed through to complete what we had planned together… even to daily watering of new landscaping while I was out of town. The marketing done by Karen and her firm was world class.
All of Karen's hard work paid off with multiple offers and a great financial outcome for me."
"Karen's the Realtor to Work With"
In April my wife and I began our house buying experience with full force. We had a plan: interview several Realtors, pick one, find a house, move in. Within minutes of meeting Karen I knew she was the Realtor we would work with. Having worked with other Realtors in the past I can honestly say that Karen tops them all. Key areas that makes Karen a superb Realtor: Intimate knowledge of the neighborhoods - technically savvy, e-mail, e-fax, pdf docs, etc."
