September 2017 We simply could not offer higher praise for Karen Lanman. Beginning in May 2017, we worked with her for over 4 months through the process of preparing our home to put on the market, selling it and then purchasing a new home. That time frame provided literally hundreds of interactions and she provided exactly what we needed every single time. There were many decisions to be made and it was often stressful for us. Then we would talk to Karen and she always calmed us down, providing not only encouragement but practical help. From our first meeting with her as we were in the process of selecting a realtor, we were impressed with her knowledge of all aspects of this complicated business and she became the clear winner. Karen is the epitome of someone who always goes above and beyond what is expected of them. The next time we need a realtor, there will be no interviewing process, we will choose her in a heartbeat!

December 2016 Letter of Reference: Karen Lanman, REALTOR United Real Estate III Lincoln Center 5430 LBJ Freeway Suite 280 Dallas, TX 75240 Karen Lanman represented us and managed the sale of our residential property in Carrollton in 2016. We have the highest regard for her professional skills, knowledge of the financial and legal aspects of the real estate transactional process and her acumen for engaging people in a friendly, enthusiastic and honest manner. We are very pleased that we chose Karen as our partner in this oftentimes complex and stressful business relationship. She gave us up-to-date information on local market valuations, communicated in a timely, but relaxed manner, through personal meetings, phone calls and email or text messages (we chose our preference) and provided useful tips in updating and presenting the home to prospective buyers. Karen’s energy and positive nature made the process practically effortless from start to finish and resulted in a great outcome for us and for the new owners of the property. We were confident that we had the best representation – and grateful we’d had the good fortune to select her as our agent. Sincerely, Russ and Elisa Berger 2717 North Surrey Carrollton, TX 75006

February 2020 My wife and I decided to make a pretty big life change and move from Kentucky to Texas in 2020. Karen was recommended by our realtor in KY when we put our house for sale there. From the first meeting with Karen through several long weekends and over 70, yes... 70+ homes Karen never once asked to stop for air. She operated like a well oiled machine throughout our open houses, helping us scour any and all leads for what we were looking for. I'll have to admit, I would have fully expected anyone else to complain or at a minimum pressure us to make a decision but not Karen. She diligently worked with us right up until we found a house that both my wife and I were happy with in addition to working with us closely for the multitude of questions and concerns we had along the way. There are few people who are in the work they're truly meant to do, but I truly believe Karen is. We would recommend her to anyone looking for realtor services. - Tim and Cathy McCauley

Are you about to take one of the most important steps of a lifetime, the selection and purchase of some kind of real estate? In the current real estate market, finding what you want might appear impossible, but this decision doesn’t have to be overwhelming. If you don’t have an inside track about what’s for sale and where, it is time to consult a professional. What’s the first thing to do?  Call me so I can help you navigate your market so you can reach your real estate goals.

First, ask yourself some questions:

  • — Is my family still growing?
  • — What are their needs?
  • — Are schools a factor?
  • — Do I want minimum grounds upkeep? Maybe just a garden?
  • — Do I need to be within commuting distance for my job?
  • — Am I a fixer-upper, or a total zilch with a hammer?
  • — Will I be using it as a second home?
  • — Will I keep the property to use for retirement or as investment?
  • — What is most important about the lifestyle I want to accomplish?
  • — Sometimes it takes a few trips to various properties for you to establish the parameters that are appropriate for you and your family. This also helps you determin what is available at this specific time.
  • — Once you are ready to make an offer, I will act as an intermediary between you and the seller. I will help negotiate price, down payment, contingencies, closing dates and anything else needed to bring the sale to a satisfactory conclusion.
