"Real Estate Agent Kari Carnes was referred through a friend at work. The thing that was immediately apparent about Kari, was her attentiveness to my personal situation. I spoke to Kari about what I was looking for and specific needs I was requiring, such as specific school district, access to the turnpike, number of bedrooms and square footage of the home. Within a couple of hours of that initial conversation, she was sending me possible listings which matched my narrow parameters. I selected several homes to look at, and Kari was always on time to these appointment, moreover with her husband being a contractor, she had special knowledge about what to look for in finding a structurally sound home. If I had a question about the structure of the home which she could not answer, her husband was just a phone call away. I never felt pressured into making a decision no matter how many homes we looked at, nor did I ever feel that I was wasting Kari's time. She was always kind and very polite. One house was appealing to me, but Kari said "you buy your neighbors too" and with this little bit of advice I passed. I appreciated this about Kari, because it told me she was looking out for me as a home buyer above her own interests as an Agent. Kari called me one day with "inside" information about a house that a fellow Agent had listed and with one look and Kari's expert opinion, I found my home.
Because of personal events in reference to affairs of the heart, a few months later I was again searching for a place to live. I did not hesitate to call Kari, who was very quick to respond to my new needs. Because of all the ground work which was previously laid on the purchase of the first house, I was able to locate the perfect home within a week.
I would recommend Kari without reservation to anyone who is looking at purchasing a home, as she is the finest Agent I've ever met.

"When I set out to buy my first home I was a little hesitant and more than a little intimidated. I had heard all kinds of horror stories about the long drawn out search, the countless rejected offers, the lack of help from realtors and loan officers.. And then I met Kari. The first time meeting Kari she took the time to figure out exactly what I wanted, she told me exactly what I would need, what it would take, and who to talk to to get it done. She lined out the process step by step and then walked me through it from the pre-qualification to closing. Thanks to Kari I am now the proud owner of my first time home"

"To Whom this may concern,
I wanted to write this recommendation for Kari Carnes, real estate agent that helped us with our home buying experience. Kari brings a wealth of knowledge and experience with her into this field. Kari knows the Oklahoma City and surrounding suburbs very well – the demographics, the school districts, the traffic, home types, market conditions and finer points of living experience and conditions there in.
Kari was patient through our buying experience. She did not demonstrate any high pressure tactics while decision making. We looked at about 20 houses and Kari was very accommodating and flexible of our time constraints and our calendar.
Once we made the decision to buy a particular house, Kari was extremely responsive and speedy with paper work sometimes even working very late in the night and very early in the morning to accommodate our travel schedules. She even navigated some of the back office and logistical work with the bank and closing offices to help us in absentia. Also Kari was very informative as we were negotiating and was very balanced and fair in her approach, which is very important as buyers and sellers both need to “win” in a transaction. She entertained many questions, found answers, helped with inspections and also where needed brought in the expertise of her acquaintances in different trades to help troubleshoot or provide information of any issues pertaining to the house to ensure our decision was toward a sound house with potential to safeguard our interests and investments.
So in short I would say Kari is more than just your agent; she is a resourceful partner that will support you with many challenging aspects of home buying/selling experience/transaction. I would wholeheartedly recommend Kari and her work.

"I have worked with many realtors, and none of them compared to Kari. Kari listened and knew the qualities we wanted in a house. She took the time to show us multiple homes that fit our criteria, and I mean “multiple”. She is very patient and full of knowledge. I trusted in her decisions, personal thoughts, and concerns. I knew that she wanted the best for us which this was a first in all the realtors we have tried. I would recommend Kari to anyone over and over again. Kari stuck with us till the end unlike anyone else, and she found us our HOME. We love it! Thank you Kari!"

"I began my search for a new home on the internet. I visited Remax.com and was interested in many of the homes they had posted. I was paired with Kari Carnes as I began visiting potential homes. As our process of finding me a new home lengthened I became very appreciative that I was paired with Kari. As a first time home buyer I was a little naive going into the process. Kari held my hand the whole way through. She gave me much needed advice, helped me select the perfect home, and is still offering her help even after we have closed. I have already recommended her to a co-worker and will to anyone who is looking for an awesome realtor. Thanks Kari!"

"Our experience with Kari has been excellent. Kari helped us sell 2 properties and was very professional, knowledgeable of the markets, and very active in marketing the properties. Kari was very helpful in pricing the properties, offering suggestions to make them more marketable, and following up on potential buyers.
When a contract was written , Kari was excellent handling all the details associated with closing the deal. In short, we were very pleased with Kari and plan to use her in the future.
- Jay Hammond
"When I contacted Kari, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing or even where to begin. I was a first-time home buyer and wasn't even sure I was really interested in buying a home. Throughout the entire process, I felt at ease. I never felt pressured. She was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the business. She wasn't just a realtor, she was a friend and at times a counselor. I bought my home more than two years ago but still remain in touch with Kari. I wholeheartedly recommend her and fully intend to use her for any home buying or selling in my future."

Testimonial for Kari Carnes
"I have known and worked with Kari for several years, so when it came time to sell my grandmother’s house, I knew Kari was the agent I wanted to list the home with. Kari sat down with me, answered every question that I had and even questions that I didn’t even know to ask. She treated me as though I was her only client, giving me complete attention and personal service. I needed a miracle to happen, I needed the house to sell very quickly, and Kari let me know exactly what I needed to do to make that happen and helped me every step of the way. The first night the house was on the market, we had 5 showings with an offer, the second day, two more showings and another offer, and the house was sold! Kari continued to make me feel as though I was her one and only client throughout the entire process until the day of closing! It doesn’t get much better than that!

Testimonial for Kari Carnes
"My friends recently bought a house and they told me how awesome Kari was and she definitely lived up to that. Since I was a first time home buyer I didn’t really know how the process worked or where to start. After the first day of talking to her she gave me a list of lenders to talk with and sent me a handful of listings to narrow down what I was looking for in a home. She always scheduled the walk through appointments that worked with my work schedule. While we were looking at the potential houses she would point out issues, whether it was chipped paint, pet stains, or possible future issues with the home. I finally found the house I wanted and we had to deal with the world’s worst seller. Kari stepped up and practically did the other realtor’s job, got everything lined out for the roof replacement so I could meet the lenders requirements and close before the end of the month because my lease on the rental house was almost up. I know I left out a bunch but Kari Carnes is definitely one of the best people or realtors you will ever come across. If I ever decide to move, I will definitely have her as my realtor again!
