"Karen is a true professional. Communication is very important to me and as a buyer I appreciate timely responses to be able to make critical decisions, Karen provided that. Knowing subject matter is equally important and Karen knows the real estate business. Your in good hands if you allow her to buy or sell your next home."

Bill and Susan

"It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments on our experience with Karen Nelsen and her team in the listing and sale of our home. While we have bought and sold a number of houses, we have never before encountered such a level of excellence. Karen's in depth KNOW HOW and the numerous professional and personal contacts in the business, places her in an enviable position from where she can take advantage of opportunities for her clients which other realtors can only dream about. This alone sets her apart from all her fellow realtors in the South Bay Area market. If you’re thinking about listing your home and you’re not sure which agent to list with, may I suggest that you list with Karen Nelsen? While it might not seem that the listing agent matters, let me tell you – it does."

Jacqueline Gomez

I promise you wont be disappointed."

Evelina Lopez

"My husband and I bought our first home this summer and let me say it was a great experience working with Karen and her team. A special thank you to Shannon, one of Karen’s assistants. We worked closely with her in finding the perfect home for our family. She was on top of Everything, from searching for homes, sending us emails, and taking us to view the homes. Once we had our eyes and hearts set on one, the process from bidding to closing went as smooth as possible all because of this team! We never felt pressured or lost in the process! I will recommend Karen and her team to anyone who wants to buy a home! We truly appreciate all your help, professionalism, and courteousness."

Brad Gilbert

"Karen demonstrated impressive knowledge and experience right when we needed it the most. She is very serious about making her clients happy, and we really appreciated that she was as committed as we were in finding a great home for us. In addition to her skills in this market we also appreciated her honesty and guidance. I would recommend Karen and her team to anyone who needs the right person to help them buy or sell a home. Thank you again Karen!"

Ryan Sullivan

"Our buying and selling process was a total nightmare. If it wasn’t for Karen Nelsen everything would have fallen apart. She went way above and beyond. We owe the fact that we now live in our dream house to Karen Nelsen. I 100% believe that she is the only one that could have pulled the whole deal off. No matter how bad the process was going, I knew that I had the right Realtor on my side. I will forever recommend Karen to whoever I meet. If you are looking for a driven, compassionate, “get the job done” real estate agent that has the experience to figure out any situation, then Karen Nelsen should be at the top of your list."

Michael Joanis

"After searching for about 2 months for an affordable home, I contacted Karen and explained my situation, that I was looking for a home near my Daughter and two grandsons, that I was retired and on a fixed income. Karen assured me that she could help me. Within a week she had 5 listings she wanted to show me. It all happened so fast and now I am in a 2yr old home and purchased it for under my budget price. Karen thank you so much. A special thank you to Shannan, Karen’s associate, who was always there for me when Karen was with other clients. Karen always got back with me, almost immediately. "

Jaime Patino

"Karen and her team are hardworking kind hearted individuals And always had us the client’s needs and wants at the forefront when home hunting. Karen never made us feel rushed or pushed for anything she felt wasn't a right fit for my family. Karen made sure to make it a point that both her and her teams availability for us is open if any questions are to come up. As first time home buyers we were filled with uncertainty and many questions, Karen is patient and full of knowledge; We were given genuine advice; my family and I are beyond grateful, excited and blessed to have someone like Karen and her team in our corner! Karen treated us like family and still feel we have gained new family with her and her team for a lifetime! Thanks to Karen and her team for finding us our beautiful home that is perfect for my family and I."

"Karen and her team did an amazing job selling my town house. She kept me informed about what was happening at all times and made the process of selling my home completely painless. Karen was able to tell me exactly what my home was worth and the price point to list at in order to get it sold right away. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone wanting to buy or sell their home."

Edward Tolentino

"My wife and I were relocating to Morgan Hill and were very happy Karen helped us get into our home. She was easy to work with, very flexible with our schedule (we were going on a trip to Asia), went out of her way to make sure the process went very smoothly, and was just a pleasure to work with! "

Adele Gallucci-Cevola

"Karen sold my home to me 25 years ago. She was such a pro, I contacted her to sell my home. We met at the beginning of the week and my home was on the MLS on Thursday. Open house Saturday and Sunday. Realtor tours Tuesday and Wednesday. Received an offer on Friday for over list price. Escrow was closed in less than 30 days without a hitch I HIGHLY RECOMMEND KAREN!!!!"

Paul Brady

"This is the first home we have bought in this country and we are so pleased to have chosen Karen (with Lisa and Shannon) for our agents. We did not have a clue how the process happened but these ladies were amazing at keeping us informed along the process; notifying us of our responsibilities in a timely fashion allowing us to do what needed to be done and helping us move in on the day we requested. We have no doubt that our relationship with Karen will continue into the future and we are delighted with that. Thank you Karen, Lisa and Shannon for enabling us to move into this beautiful dream home. "

Hilary & Angelo Gomez

"Karen and her team are top notch. We have bought and sold multiple homes with Karen with success. She knows the market well, is very strategic when placing offers on homes for buyers and similar in setting pricing and making recommendations on how to show homes for sellers. She is someone you want on your side. In our last purchase we had an issue with the financing and she was able to bring in another reputable company to meet the deadlines. She generally has solutions to most issues that arise and is well known in the industry."

Barbara & Bruce Pitcher

"Karen was our listing agent and we sold our home contingent upon our buyer’s selling their home. Karen managed a complex transaction, holding the other agents accountable for their parts of the process, all the while keeping us informed on every aspect along the way. She simultaneously managed the negotiations for the purchase of our new home. Karen is not only very knowledgeable and professional, she really treats her clients with a personal, caring touch. Thanks Karen!"


"Karen and Shawn are an incredible team, they made the disruptive process of selling our home so much easier. They were there for us each step of the way, we couldn’t be more pleased or grateful."

Ken and Lonni Polizzi

"Karen has shown us the value of a true professional. As we moved from selling our home to relocating to a different area, Karen was there for us during the entire process. She has the resolve to find a solution to any road blocks that might pop up during a journey through the increasingly complicated real estate market. I'm sitting in our beautiful new home and I still don't know how she managed to get it all done and on time too. It helps that she has a network of professionals that she has gathered around her to assure they have the same proprietary values as she does. That is what you get with an caring, experienced professional like Karen. "

Tom and Jean Gorndt

"We highly recommend Karen Nelson, who recently helped us sell our home in Morgan Hill. She knew the demographics of our area, had a comprehensive marketing plan for our property, and was always accessible. She provided excellent advice on pricing our house and preparing it for market. She sent us weekly reports on open houses, interested parties, areas of concern, etc., and also emailed us periodic summaries of web traffic on our listing. She and Shawn kept us well-informed throughout the entire process, and were on top of every detail from start to finish. Great service, great results!"

Brian Uyeda

"Thank you Karen, you are simply the best! We trust your experience and honesty, from buying to selling our first home, you made the process a great journey for our family. We wouldn't think of ever using anyone else. One of the most cherished qualities of Karen is that we knew she always cared and had our back. She's confident, energetic, wise and knows how to get things done!!!

We also enjoyed Shawn, as she always had an answer to our questions about all the little things that often pop up during a RE transaction. Thanks Shawn, you are a BIG part of the team, thanks for always helping us in the little (yet most important) ways.

We will miss you both, and if we ever return to the Bay Area, we will call you gals.

Many blessings to you and your loved ones."

Jason Krassow

"I had a hopeless situation, with a ruthless lender....Than I met Karen :) I was on the verge of having to file bankruptcy to deal with a bad loan on a seriously upside down property. Karen worked so hard and aggressive to make a short sale happen for me. Karen even drove all the way to Discovery Bay from Morgan Hill to view the property and to meet with me to address my concerns. Karen was professional and kept me in the loop on everything. No matter what the progress was, Karen called me religiously every Friday to update me on the status of my short sale. Karen's staff is very helpful and they made me feel very comfortable during the process. If things get better for me financially I will be moving closer to San Jose, I wouldn't hesitate to use Karen for a purchase as well. I highly suggest Karen for any real estate needs! "
