"There are some people, that when you meet and find out how phenomenal they are, you just have to tell everyone you know about them. Meet Cindy Karp. Hardest working real estate agent I've ever seen, one of the most fascinating women I've ever met, and all around beautiful person. I'm blessed to now call her a friend!
I'm so happy the other agent flaked out on us, because then I wouldn't have met her. Things truly happen for a reason."
"Man what a day! It started with no deal, and has ended with two signed full cash offers. I haven't even been to bed yet. I've been showing this place all day. I thought I worked hard, but my realtor, Cindy Karp, is the hardest working realtor in Athens! Thank you Cindy! And that earnest money from the canceled deal will help me get on the road! I better get some sleep because tonight is my last day at this job."
"She's great, just all around great! Cindy knows how to broker a deal and does so with tact and professionalism."
"When we lived in Athens, Georgia I always read in the paper about Cindy Karp's accomplishments so when we wanted to sell our house we had no doubt who we were going to call, Cindy Karp sold our home in no time, and we had remained friends ever since!"
"GREAT Realtor and better person, she could represent me anytime."
"Working with Cindy to find a new home was a wonderful experience. She understands the emotional needs of her clients as well as working with the real estate issues. She has taken a great deal of time to talk about the many different aspects and considerations when making life changes and the most important choice of a new home. I recommend Cindy not only for her professional expertise but also for her compassionate nature."
"While marketing our house, Cindy Karp exceeded our expectations in every way possible. I consider myself a pretty good businessperson and yet I can't think how Cindy could have done a better job selling our house. Cindy provided excellent, prompt, and clear communication at every opportunity. She had an active plan for marketing our house and invested plenty of her business' money to make it work. She went beyond the basics at every opportunity. She provided advice when we needed it and we felt confident in her judgement.
I continuously got the impression that Cindy was working for us all day long and wondered how the heck she had time to attend to any one else's business. We did not have the same experience with one of Cindy's competitors. The other agency that first listed our house was friendly enough, but seemed to rely only on the Multiple Listing Service to sell our house. We didn't feel that the other agency had a plan...the only plan was to drop the listing price and pray. Communication was not as easy with this agency.
I heartily recommend that whoever reads this should list with Cindy and watch with satisfaction as her marketing machine kicks into gear. My only regret with Cindy is that we've moved across the country and won't be able to use her the next time we list our house."
"Well, I've just slowed down enough to drop you a line. I want to personally thank you so much for everything you did for me. It was such a whirlwind in that I listed with you one day, then two days later I had a contract and had to be out in 30 days. Panicking a little, we put together the purchase of my new home within another day or two. The information sheet you provided me that had mortgage brokers, utility companies, etc. was invaluable. I just went down the list and everything I needed to do in closing accounts and reestablishing accounts was right there. How do you do it all? You are such a professional, and I consider you a friend as well. Again, thank you so very much for everything. The beautiful gold glass vase has a special place in my new home, thanks. Also, please give my thanks to Andy Thompson for his help in showing me around. He's great.
Once more, thank you for everything from listing to closing, you were there when I really need you. Thanks and keep in touch. Best wishes and good health."
"It has been a pleasure doing business with you. We have become good friends and we'll keep in touch. Come to see me in Charleston. You have helped me immensely after David's death. You were wonderful also to help us find our home in Athens and helped me to sell it five years later so I could retire in Charleston."
Linda Dunning, Athens, Georgia
"Ray and I cannot thank you enough for your help with our recent life changes. I have spent a week on a "high" knowing the OLD house is sold and we are happy in our NEW home. Your support has been greatly appreciated."
Drs. Ray and Holly Kaplan, Bishop, Georgia
"I have known Cindy for about five years, as Manager of a local Restaurant, Cindy was one of my favorite Clients. She bugged me frequently about buying a home. When I was ready to buy, I called her immediately. Her efforts were professional, friendly, no-nonsense and quite honestly - flawless. Cindy made me comfortable throughout the whole process-she was quick with response to any questions and went above and beyond in all aspects. Cindy is a great friend to have in the world of Real Estate."
Robert Cuzzone, Athens, Georgia
"I have known Cindy for over 12 years. During that time, I have bought and sold four houses with her. Her knowledge, professionalism, integrity, and character are unquestionable. My family is privileged not only to have worked with her but to consider her a close friend. She has the patience of a saint and answers all of my questions thoroughly. She is one finest human beings I have ever known. I am grateful for your help, friendship, time, effort, support, and patience. I could never imagine working with or referring any one to anybody but her. My only complaint is that she can not be my CPA, attorney, doctor, pediatrician, and dentist."
Fred and Cay Cay Praeger, Athens, Georgia
"Dear Cindy and John:
You sold our home in just 18 days in December 2003! You were right, all we had to do was let you do the worrying. You, John, and Alter took care of everything. Our home sale went swiftly and smoothly. We're confidant your firm's services were better, faster, and more comprehensive than all your worthy competitors. We definitely recommend your firm to all our friends and colleagues. Thank you again."
Valerie and Scott Sikes
"We knew we would be moving soon, but we didn't know when. We let Cindy know and she went to work right away, finding us an interested buyer before we were ready to list. When we were ready, we let Cindy know, and our house was under contract in 11 days. Thank you Cindy for working with us and our timeline. If you are considering a move, you need to call Cindy."
Mark and Emi Kooyman
"Cindy is the consummate professional. When we listed our home with her, she kicked off a full marketing campaign. Our home sold in 48 hours and the closing went off without a hitch. Now that's service!"
Susie and Kurt Coker
"Cindy was wonderful! She guided us through the sale of our old house and were invaluable as we negotiated the purchase of our new residence. We couldn't be more pleased. Her knowledge, support and friendship made these events entirely enjoyable. Thanks!"
Gil and Barbara Spivack
"Cindy sold our first home within 24 hours after putting it on the market. Then she helped us find the home of our dreams with one of Athens' best back yards. Cindy Karp Realty was both professional and accommodating during our search for a new home."
Jimbo, Beth and Davis Wood
"We have worked with Cindy on four separate occasions and she is the ONLY agent we entrust with our home and our future. She truely gets the job done. We just love her."
Barry, Robin, Walker, Stafford and Hunter Sosebe
I cannot tell you what a pleasurable experience it has been to work with you again. You really made one of life's most stressful events just a cakewalk for us! Cindy, you certainly know how to sell a house!- and to top things off, you completely showered us with such thoughtful and creative gifts."
Cay Cay Praeger
I just wanted to write you a little thank you for your help with our recent condo purchase in Athens for our daughter. My husband I are very grateful for all the hard work and time you put into making this deal go smoothly. Buying real estate is not an easy thing to do when you are not familiar with all the details that go into it. But having you on our side gave us peace of mind. Rest assured that I would recommend your agency to anyone looking to make a real estate purchase in the Athens area. Thank you again from my entire family, especially Layla. Keep up the good work!"
"Cindy has an unusual gift. She can negotiate a sale in record time. I have bought and sold many houses dealing with different brokers. This has been the only transaction I've experienced which has been stress-less. With Cindy both buyer and seller walk away satisfied."
"I hardly know where to begin. To say merely "thank you" does not begin to express how grateful I am for your support throughout the entire process of selling and purchasing our homes.
Your attention to detail, aggressive marketing, and your willingness to support Greg and I emotionally was invaluable. You understood from our first meeting that we were selling and purchasing a "home", not simply marketing a piece of real estate or hoping to make an investment.
While I have no intention of ever leaving my home, I would not hesitate to do business with you again. You are an asset to your profession and a lovely person. I count you among our friends."
Johannah and Greg Sirausa
"Cindy Karp Realty did an excellent job in handling a property we recently had for sale. Cindy listed our property on a Tuesday and had a buyer for us on Saturday of that week! Not only is she very professional, efficient and knowledgeable about the market in our area, but also very warm and friendly. We would highly recommend her services to anyone who has a property for sale."
Mary Ann and Joseph Golub
"Our genuine gratitude and thanks will likely never be truly expressed to Cindy as her expertise, knowledge and warmth not only helped us find our family a house, but a home and a community in which we feel fortunately to belong. As we were transferred from across the country, we relied heavily upon her persistent dedication and perseverance to help meet our needs. As this was not our first relocation, we can attest that her unparalleled professionalism, sincerity and dedication was apparent in each effort she made for us. Unlike any other real estate professional we have worked with in the past, Cindy did not merely show us houses, but by explaining the details of the neighborhoods, the builders and community services so that we understood not only the advantages of the home, but acquired the understanding we would be the happiest.
We know that if we ever buy another house we will turn to Cindy to once again help us. More likely tough, as we are so happy in our current home, it will be our constant recommendation to others to utilize Cindy Karp Realty that will symbolize our unconditional appreciation."
Terry and Ellen Davies
"Purchasing a home is a very rewarding experience when your real-estate agent knows how to navigate the process and look out for your better interest. Cindy Karp is one such agent and is an invaluable resource. We are so pleased with her efforts. She was tremendous. Our time frame was incredibly short and she scurried to provide us many properties to review, established very reasonable requests, and set logical time lines.
Once we settled upon a property, her negotiation skills proved valuable and her organizing abilities were superb as she rallied inspectors, loan officers, and others to efficiently complete the process. Cindy provided us with valuable suggestions and stayed atop all of the proceedings assuring that all items were delivered. We cannot extend our appreciation enough. She is truly top notch and a remarkable agent.
Cindy was a highly efficient, friendly, informative, and flexible professional. She saved us a great deal of time and money. She was a pleasure to work with, and she helped to coordinate everybody involved in the purchase of our home. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is interested in buying or selling property.
PS. I love my washer and dryer and I wouldn't have had them without you. We are enjoying our new house, thanks to your persistence."
