"We met Karen Myhre at an open house, which we eventually bought. She came across as warm and caring and very professional. Since we had not planned on buying a new house, we just happened to fall in love with the house, we did not come prepared with pre-financing. She was very helpful and recommended someone whom she trusted to get the job done fast enough for us to bid on the house. We also did not come with a realtor. She would recommend another realtor for us, but she would not represent both the seller and us as buyers, even though it would mean more commission on the sale for herself. This showed the honesty and integrity of Karen as a real estate professional, which really impressed us. After we bought the new house using a trusted friend as our agent, we decided to ask Karen to sell our existing house. Her experience, dedication, ‘go the extra mile’ mentality and her dynamic personality really shined. She helped us staged the house properly; strategized with us to get the house to sell as quickly as possible; dealt with appraiser, termite inspector, window cleaners and carpet cleaners when we were not able to meet them; kept us informed; returned calls promptly; and worked all hours when necessary. She was always kind, cheerful and energetic. It was always a pleasure to meet with her because we were treated like friends, not just clients, and felt that she had our best interest at heart. We own several rental properties so we have dealt with many realtors. Karen definitely stood out as one of the best we have dealt with. We would highly recommend Karen as a realtor.

"I highly recommend Karen. Working with her to purchase my dream home was such a pleasure. She took such care and effort to ensure we found exactly what we wanted and WE DID. It was the first time we have ever purchased a home and I had heard so many stories of difficulties that people encounter during the search and process. We experienced none. Everything just seemed to fall into place as she guided us through the process. She was there whenever I had questions or concerns. She was very professional and showed a level of caring that I didn't expect from any realtor. Just prior to moving into our dream home, Karen visited our new neighbors and asked them to sign a card welcoming us to the neighborhood. They all obliged and many commented to us later what a great realtor we had and they had wished theirs had done the same for them. It was a lovely way to get to know our new neighbors and great reference to look back when we couldn't remember someone's name. She really went above and beyond. I couldn't be happier with her and our new home. "

"Karen Myhre is an awesome representative for handling all your Real Estate needs! Karen took every consideration of my personal situation in getting my home ready for sale and seeing it through the contract and escrow period. Karen made sure the buyers were fully documented for any loan then stayed on top of their realtor to keep things moving when they decided to use a different lender midway thru the escrow period. Not only did Karen make sure things went as smoothly as possible on the selling end, Karen made sure there was full transparency and communication with my realtor and Title Company on the property I was buying. Karen went above and beyond what most realtors do, to support me in the process. Karen certainly was the hardest working of all the buying and selling realtors I was dealing with, and my two realtors were far and above the better performers compared with the realtors of my buyers and those of the people I bought from. Anyone who has Karen represent them will be well taken care of. "

I would like to take a moment to highly praise KarenMyhre for helping to sell our home in Castro Valley. As you know this was a most difficult sale. Karen was extremely professional and went above and beyond the call of duty to assure this sell went through.
Karen always had a smile and a professional demeanor when greeting and dealing with prospective buyers. When her mother passed she made sure that we were always taken care of and had back-up for any open houses. She always kept us in the loop and returned our calls promptly.
I would definitely recommend Karen as a Realtor to anyone I know who is selling their home or looking to buy.Interno is lucky to have Karen on their team. I not only have met an excellent Realtor, but I have gained a new friend as well.

We met Karen at an open house. She worked very hard and took the time to answer and understand all our questions. She helped us step by step through the whole selling process. She was very knowlegable. I would recommend her to all our friends and family if they mention they are thinking of moving. She treated us as we were the most important people she knew. We are very happy we chose Karen as our Realtor.

**** I would like to describe my experiences with your fellow realtor—Karen Myhre.
When Karen and I met in October of ’07, I had been receiving listings and done some on-site home searchings for almost 2 years with 2 other realtors.
I was presenting Karen with some steep challenges: I was looking for my home-to-be in CA while still living more than 3300 miles away--in FL and NC. I had very specific ideas about the style house I wanted, and I had a lot of rather large furniture which I wanted to keep so the available “wall-space” in the rooms of my-home-to-be was of crucial importance. And lastly, I was a complete novice in buying a home so knew I would need someone who could "lead me by the hand" thru the whole process.
Karen and I spent several hours together in Oct., and altho’ we didn’t find the right home at that time, Karen subsequently kept me fully informed as to developments in the Silicon Valley housing market and kept me well-supplied with email listings of “possibles” which met my complex list of requirements.
I returned to CA for another search in April and, after a couple of discouraging days, on the 3rd day, we were successful! At that time Karen began a series of incredibly kind and helpful deeds which would not terminate as soon as the purchase was completed--as everyone predicted--but have continued since then with amazing (and/(or sometimes appalling) frequency.
Please note that I do say "we were successful" as I've felt all along that this home-search with Karen was definitely a team effort!
Karen, and her husband, Bob, made trip after trip to help me while I was still in CA and have looked after the property since then as if it were their own. (I can provide you with a list of all the things they've done to-date if you would like and it's a lengthy one.) She's done everything from getting small lamps and timers to set in the house so it would look less empty to being the back-up on my security-system, (esp. rewarding when there was an attempted break-in) to "house-sitting" when the window-coverings and carpet were installed this past week!
And they have continued to do so via phone, emails, and photos ever since the purchase was concluded.
The words "awesome" and "incredible" are grossly over-used adjectives in our society today, but these are the very words which describe Karen's actions in this whole process. They are the words which come to mind every day and every time I describe Karen to friends, business acquaintances and family. She has been the ultimate professional despite her own health and family health problems--and the long-ago completion of the purchase. Her kindness and cheering, detailed news-reports from CA have become legendary!
It has been my pleasure to sing her well-deserved praises from coast-to-coast--from NC and FL to CA and everyone else I've written about my experience. And nothing would please me more than for her well-deserved praise resulting in many more property sales and more clients as happy as I am.
I hope you will always treasure her as do I for she more than one-in-500 million!
****"Karen was extremely dependable and honest. These are qualities I think are hard to find in people. We were and continue to be very satisfied with her."
****"Her detailed and efficient knowledge was extremely beneficial in helping me succeed in my home loan and purchase of a home."
****"She doesn't stop until you are completely satisfied. I've used other realtor services in the past - she's by far the best!"
****"Ms. Myhre gave by far the most personal sincere and best service possible!"
****"We'd recommend her to anyone, in fact, any time one of our friends mentions that they are thinking about moving, we give them her card."
Being from the East Coast, we knew nothing about the San Mateo, San Francisco area. My son was starting a new job following his graduation from college and needed to find a place to live. We made contact with Karen through the ReMax website and she helped us find a place in a very short time. We were able to fly to California, spend 3 days looking, decide on a place and get the details accomplished. Without Karen's help, this would have been nearly impossible. She showed us nearly 20 places (apartments) within the San Mateo, Burlingame, San Francisco area in 2 days. She was very professional, courteous, and accomodating to our needs. Even though the financial outcome for her was not as great as it would have been had she sold us a house, she treated us as if we just as important to her. It was a great pleasure to have her in our corner. We would recommend her very highly to anyone searching for any type of accomdation, rental or sale. We could not have been happier. Collin Sanford"
I wanted to thank you again for all your assistance with the short sale of our property. We were a little apprehensive about the process and didn’t know where to begin. You made the process easy and straight forward. You were very well organized and educated about the process and I didn’t feel like we had to provide additional information to the lender or deal with follow up questions. You handled the entire process professionally and kept us up to date on the status. I think that was a real credit to how quickly and easily the process moved along. Thank you again for all of your help during this difficult time, you made it as easy and stress-free as possible.
Hello Karen –
Thank you for making this happen!!! You’ve been great and we absolutely love your hard work and dedication. We’ll definitely call you next time we’re ready to buy our next one . Again … thank for the excellent service. We enjoyed having you as our broker.

****We bought our first condo under Karen's help. It was a great pleasure to work with her. She worked very hard and truly understood our needs and concerns. Since we are first time home buyers and were clueless at the beginning, Karen helped us step by step to get our ideal place to live. She is very knowledgeable and energetic, and always fight for our good. We love working with Karen!Thanks,Ethan & Ivy
