Karen did a fantastic job all through the entire process from listing through closing. I found her to be a seasoned professional with a vast understanding of her field. I would recommend Karen Mitchell to anyone interested in buying or selling property in the Brunswick County market.

Karen is a real go getter. She is so well informed about real estate whether you are purchasing or selling. She has helped me both purchase and sell property and I have been very pleased. She is the only one I would prefer to work with when it comes to selling any more of my properties. She gets the job done!

Donna

Karen recently helped us sell our home at Holden Beach. She was incredibly responsive during the entire process. Very knowledgeable of current and trending market conditions and overall a great agent. We live out of town and she made the entire process seamless. I would definitely use Karen again!

Dee and Al

Without any notice she showed us our place on a holiday weekend. She was warm, friendly, and professional. She made the buying experience easy and stress free.

Conrad

You can tell Karen is extremely passionate about doing the best job she can representing her client. She seems to very confidently deal with the personality of the person she is working with and helps navigate the transaction between individuals so seamlessly that you can see she has been at this quite a while and is very professional and capable of getting you thought stressful events that may occur during the transaction so calmly that she helps you relax when you might otherwise become aggravated with some of the situations that can occur. But the biggest kudo of all is she gets the job done and quickly. If I could, I'd give her 10 stars and will use her again for my future real estate needs for sure.

We had a fantastic experience with Karen! She was responsive, knowledgeable, and had amazing follow-thru. Would recommend her for the new and experience buyer or seller. Looking forward to working with her on future projects. Thank you Karen!

Pete & Jamea

Having bought and sold numerous properties throughout our years, Karen Mitchell is hands down the best realtor we've ever worked with. Her knowledge of current market conditions enabled us to sell our home in record time and for more than we expected. Karen's a great communicator and a pleasure to work with, always keeping us informed of progress along the way and quick to answer any questions thrown at her. Whether you're ready to sell or buy, Karen wll not disappoint. Her title of Super Agent says it all! Thanks Karen!


Sandra

Karen was very instrumental in the sale of my home. Very hands-on, replied back quickly to me. Cannot ask for anybody to be any better at her job. Look forward to working with her again


Nancy E.

Karen has worked nonstop during 2019 and 2020 to market 4 properties for me. Through several frustrating incidents, she remained positive and kept me informed on each step she took to continue her marketing strategies. She is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of selling and/or buying property. She was always encouraging and upbeat that a buyer(s) would present at the right time. She was definitely an inspiration at times I was ready to give up. She is amazing, energetic, and a very “people” person. I would highly recommend her to anyone in search of a real estate agent.'


Anna D.

Karen was a wonderful advocate for us in our search for a family get away. Always willing to meet us at anytime since we were from out of town. She’s very knowledgeable about the processes, and helped use have smooth closing. She knows the areas well and treated us like family! She has really been a breath of fresh air in this negative time we live in!!


Audrey C.

Karen was very helpful in guiding us with out lot listing. She was in constant contact with us throughout the process. Our lot sold quickly and we have Karen to thank for her aggressive marketing. I highly recommend Karen.


Anna D.

We had a great experience with Karen working with us at Holden Beach. Being out of town she was always there to show for us at short notice! Very knowledgeable about processes and guided us to an easy buy and closing. I would recommend her to everyone! Thank you for great experience!!"

I am a 17 year home owner at Holden Beach and have listed my home on a few occasions over that time. I had tried a few other realtors within those listings - all for the same reasons you may considering reading this. Loyalty. Name Brand. Number of Listings. Never did they sell. As a sales person myself, I have my reasons why the house did not sell. It was priced right (most of the time), it had locationX3 and it showed immaculately. The reason why it didn't sell before Karen is that it was waiting for Karen. How did I come by this Monday Morning Shark? I started right at the top - like any great sales person. Since I had listed my home on several occasions, I was on every agency's direct mail list. One kept attracting my attention - and that was Proactive. Even when I went down to the beach, it was clear that they knew how to move properties. So, I emailed the President - Jabin Norris. I shared my saga of failed attempts. I was transparent that I wanted someone who would actually SELL this property - not put it on realtor.com and hope for the best. He put me in touch with Karen Mitchell. The rest is history. But that's not why you are reading this. You want to know about Karen. Here are five words that describe her: Partner. Relentless. Resilient. Gritty. Savvy. If that hasn't grabbed you, I will share more. Karen and I listed my house just before Covid hit. We got an offer within 7 days. Unfortunately, there was an issue found upon inspection that spooked the buyers. They walked. I addressed the issue and Karen went back to work. Less than 3 weeks later (height of Covid), she secured another offer. At this point, the inspection repairs were fully complete, the home sold at the appraised value and we just needed to deal with closing. That was one for the books. I've sold many homes in my life. Karen, 100X more than me. This transaction was truly unique. I won't go into detail, but trust me, I wouldn't wish this onto anyone. What did Karen do? Move from realtor to Sherpa. She guided me through an unbelievably stressful situation, while my own life (work and personal were on defcon 10). She kept everything calm and on track and got us to the closing table. You want Karen on your side. You want to choose her. Trust me. Not only will you sell your home, you will have a true partner working for you. Even in the toughest times. With the toughest buyers. In the toughest markets. SHE is gold. Without a doubt, Karen lived up to everything Jabin said she would do. She is a Monday Morning Shark. That says it all.

Karen Mitchell is an incredible agent and absolutely AMAZING to work with. We just bought our beach home in Holden Beach, and we would recommend her to anyone without hesitation. She is incredibly in-tune with the area and an expert in her field. She consistently gave great advice, and helped us find a place we can love and afford. We came into the market not knowing much of the area or what we were really looking for, but Karen helped us set our expectations and educated us on the area, the homes and the entire process. She really listened to our needs and opinions and offered her expert advice (which was always right). She is also extremely responsive (and quick) and provides transparent communication. If you are looking for the best, honest, hardworking and your personal interest, then you absolutely have to work with Karen.

Karen has all the qualities we wanted or needed in a realtor and she went above and beyond to meet our needs. Her research and knowledge of the homes we looked into was excellent. There is no such thing as a dumb question about a home for Karen, if she does not know the answer to your question she finds the answer quickly!! Our strongest impression of Karen is plain and simple...she wanted to put us in the home WE wanted. After discussing our budget and what we were looking for she showed us several homes. We fell in love with one that was $50K under our budget. There was not one mention of another home once she knew how we felt. She could have easily encouraged us to keep looking at other higher priced homes which in turn would put more money in her pocket, she did not suggest we keep looking. Our experience working with Karen was great. We were very comfortable with her, which was very important to us. Karen is Top Shelf in our book!


Ronniemann68

Karen is and will always be my contact for any and all real estate! She is knowledgeable, focused, and experienced! Finding the perfect home at the perfect price is what she did for me! 5 stars isnt enough, she deserves all the stars in the sky!


Nikkij3505

Karen is the perfect fit for our needs. With busy work schedules, she is very responsive to texts and emails at all times of day. For the few times you need her to answer the phone for a quick question, she is there. She give us walk-through videos of properties prior to us traveling to NC. She even went as far to cover the earnest funds that the closing attorney lost! She is a great person, creative with strategies to get the job done and excellent at her craft!


Bruno Family

Karen is an amazing realtor, and she was so helpful to both my husband and I as we went though the process of buying our home. We highly recommend her and are thankful for all she did for us.


Mmcgee023

Karen was helpful in selling our home. She went above and beyond with negotiations and assistance with the closure of the property. She was always available for questions and assistance.


John R.

Karen is truly a super agent and super star in my book. Very professional and right on top of everything. She will be my go to agent again and again for my future purchases, and my next listing. Always has time for you never too busy to answer any questions. I would give her more stars if there were more listed. Thanks Karen!


Radiorepman

I know what you're thinking...really 5 stars! I RARELY do that on anything! I so glad Karen was the "working agent on weekend duty" when I just happened to stop in. Yep, I challenged her! I interviewed HER before I let her ask ME any questions...needless to say. She passed! In today's crazy busy world, I have no idea how she was able to respond SOOO fast on my questions, concerns, process...and plan ole "am I doing the right thing to sell" concerns. Bottom line...her company markets and showcases using the LATEST digital platforms...along with old fashioned "sweat" to make it happen. When I'm ready to BUY (hopefully soon)..she's the one!


Beachbum0423

Karen truly is a "Super Agent" She made buying our property easy and fast. Her knowledge of the process was bar none. She was always available to answer any questions we had which was greatly appreciated considering we live in NJ - for the time being. We can't wait to be "neighbors" with her- not only is she professional and knowledgeable about the area but she is a sweetheart!


Tim and Karen T.

She is very knowledgeable about the property's at Holden Beach, every request I made she was on it trying to get it resolved. Feel she handled herself in a very professional manner and was most patient with me as it took over a year from our first contact to actually purchasing a property. She is the best!!


Brendatillman0410

Karen was excellent to work with. She assisted us with questions and issues as they came up and helped us work through them. She met with contractors and repair men at the house for us when we could not be there. She was very responsive when we called her and did all she could to help and assist us. I would definitely use her services again with other properties that we may have to sell. And I would highly recommend her to anyone else that needs a realtor in the Holden Beach / Supply area.


Amhnmp0916

Awesome agent through our land buying process, always there to answer any questions we ever had! Would recommend her over and over for all real estate needs!


Cjcooper15

Karen recently guided us through the sale of our property. Her knowledge and expertise helped to price the property correctly, connect with the right people and make the entire process very pleasant and easy for everyone. Our family would highly recommend Karen for anyone looking for a great real estate buying or selling experience.


Mitzie317

I had a piece of land for sale and I was from out of town. She stayed in touch with me the entire time. Extremely helpful and kept me in the loop. She handled all of the leg work. If I had questions, she always willing to talk to me and explain. Was on the market just a few weeks. I know the sale would not have been as smooth if not for Karen.


Waynesparr

Karen's professionalism and great attitude made my home purchase fun! Regardless of time and or questions, she was always there with a smile and support. I would highly recommend Karen Mitchell to anyone considering purchasing a home. Many thanks to her for a great home purchasing experience.


Ken L.

From our first meeting until the final closing check to me, Karen displayed professionalism and friendliness in each encounter. She is top quality and was a real asset to us in listing and selling our property. I could not have asked for me as she was on top of each issue along the way. If I had it to do over, wouldn't change a thing. She has the title "Super Agent" because that's what she is. If there were 10 stars, I would have rated her a 10.


Pkbishop1

When it comes to stars Karen Michelle is worth all the stars in the universe. She is a super first class professional. Her work ethic is impeccable. I'm fifteen hours away yet Karen's communications with updates on the progress of the work done on my house and the key people she brought in to make this sale happen we're top notch. Karen fought the Devil and won. I never worked with a more dedicated person, and always be grateful for incredible she did.


Jcarlan35

Exceptional service. Never a doubt or wonder about what was was happening with the sale of our home. I Highly recommend Karen to anyone looking to buy or sell.
