A Raving Fan of Karen’s:

“I just closed on a house with the help of Karen Terbenche and wanted to let you know what a valuable asset she is to your organization. She really made selling my home a stress-free process. I have been a part of some very frustrating real estate deals in the past, so I truly appreciate how smooth this one went.
I initially reached out to her expecting to have to do a short sale on my home. We walked through my situation and agreed to do whatever we could to avoid short sale. I was willing to bring money to the table but had limited funds to do so. In the end, we got a cash offer that was a little more than what I needed to avoid short sale. Karen did a great job entertaining multiple offers and explaining my situation to the buyers’ realtors.

I cannot thank her enough for her hard work, dedication, warmth, personable, customer service. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking to buy or sell in the Fort Myers / Cape Coral area.”

Thank you,
