Home Buyers' Representation

As your Buyer's Representative, I can make the home buying process much easier and more efficient than if you tried to tackle the job all yourself.  The benefits to having a Buyer’s Specialist representing you are many and include:

  • As your personal buyer’s agent, we work on your behalf, not the seller
  • We can set you up to receive automatic email notifications on only the properties you want to see, in the neighborhoods you are interested in, and, if needed, provide our opinions regarding the properties relating to your circumstances.
  • Point out the positives and negatives of each property so you can make a fully informed decision about your home purchase.
  • Provide detailed analyses of area prices, so you not find yourself overpaying for a house.
  • Plan an offer strategy, write up and present your written offer to the listing agent and work with you regarding negotiation changes.
  • Provide reliable sources of lenders, inspectors, attorneys, insurance agents, and other professionals all working together to ensure a smooth and seamless transaction.
  • Arrange for your home inspection, and any other inspections you might need to determine if the house will be acceptable to you.
  • Manage your real estate transaction from start to finish.
  • Make sure contingency dates are met or extended from contract to closing.
  • Answer any questions you may have along the way.
  • Accompany you for your final walk through of the house before closing to make sure the house is in the condition it should be.
  • Attend your closing with you so you will experience a smooth and timely closing.
  • Our compensation is paid by the seller; our service is free to you.
  • Anything else we can do to help busy professionals who have little time.

What my clients are saying  

Being new to Florida, we had no idea where to start......Kari was fantastic in helping us find our home, she made sure to show us the homes that had the features we were most interested in, while keeping it in our budget! From start to finish she was always a text or call away; promptly responding to any question we had. Great experience throughout! Definitely recommend


~ Ashley & David D.

Kari became known to us through her website & speaking directly with her convinced my husband and me that she would be the perfect Real Estate Broker for us. Kari was presented with the task of working with us from “out of state”, & with specific guidelines of what we were looking for. Our knowledge of Venice from previously living there; helped us pick the areas we wanted to look in, but to find just that “perfect house” could be a challenge...long hours of searching, daily updates, her honesty & integrity throughout the whole process & her most valuable knowledge in all phases of real estate was so impressive and paid off in the end. Kari went the “extra mile” with helping us in many areas that she wasn’t responsible for, in order to make our dream come true...she is the type of person I would be proud to also call a friend.


~ Judi & Dan C.

Kari was excellent in helping us close the purchase of our new home. Our real estate purchase took a long time to complete & there was a number of problems to sort out, but Kari dealt with all the issues in a quick & professional manner. We would definitely have her look after any of our future real estate transactions.


~ KPSpecht

Kari is as honest and hard working as they come. She made a very difficult process seem as smooth as silk. If you are looking to buy or sell a house in the greater Sarasota area you would be doing yourself an injustice to use anyone else!


~ BrokerByFord

Kari is a remarkable real estate agent. She worked with us on a short sale and never gave up, even when the market was at its worst. She is professional and extremely knowledgable of the area. I have recommeded her to family and friends and will continue to do so.


~ JulieGionfriddoFortune

Kari was terrific in all respects! My particular transaction took quite a while (no fault of hers) and she was patient, diligent and thorough. Ultimately, she "got it done" and I doubt that many other agents would have kept their commitment to me in the same way that Kari did.


~ sjhofmann

Kari is an agent that will go above and beyond..she did just that for us and our sale! She was everything you look for in an agent,a good communicator, great negotiator and very knowledgeable about our current market and the SW Florida area! She always had a calm way of dealing with even the most stressful of situations (even with a difficult buyer)! She always made us feel like she was on our side thru it all! She kept us informed thru out the entire sale process. Whether it was thru email,texts, or a phone call, we always knew what was happening. We were thankful to have such an amazing agent and have recommended her to others already!
