A friend in commercial real estate recommended Karen Spechler to us for residential property because of her experience and very high volume of closed transactions.  Karen was a huge help with vetting properties, weighing options, and navigating the very complicated processes associated with real estate sales.  She listened carefully to our needs, and immediately honed in on the right properties without wasting our time. Other agents, as well as the broker, lender and title reps involved with our purchase had high regard for Karen, which was helpful for moving things quickly and resolving problems.  She compensated for a far less experienced selling agent, who made some poor choices and wasn’t entirely responsive. Her knowledge of the market and quick responses were instrumental in securing an excellent property for us.  Karen Spechler is a highly personable and knowledgeable professional who would be a tremendous asset to anyone seeking an excellent deal and smooth transaction.


We wanted to formally thank you Karen for your outstanding assistance with the recent sale of our home here in Santa Barbara. We liked the fact that you returned calls promptly and explained anything that was unclear to us. Your Pleasant manner was a pleasure to deal with and you kept your cool even when we got a bit “tense.”

Given the emotional and stressful nature of selling and buying at the same time, Karen lent a professional and calming hand during every step of this dizzying process. Beginning as clients, and ending as friends, we will always be grateful to Karen Spechler as we begin to enjoy our most pleasant new home.
