Like another reviewer I had the challenge of assisting my sister transition from her condo in SB where she lived for 35 yrs. ,to where I live in St Paul over the Spring-Fall of 2017 . Selecting a good realtor was one of the first things on my list of things to do . I did a comprehensive realtor search and inquiry online and Karen rose to the top of the list based on all of the factors that were important to me. We visited with her & signed a listing agreement . Our goals were clearly communicated to Karen, a fair price that was competitive and would sell the property ; an allowance for reasonable cosmetic improvements that would be needed in a home that someone has lived in for 35 years , no surprises or crisis moments throughout the process , a smooth and efficient sale and closing , and good communication . She gets a 10 on all of these factors and then some. She helped us set , and the condo sold for, a price we were very satisfied with that was fair to both seller and buyer , she anticipated problems and dealt with them before they became distractions , cosmetic upgrading was done by competent contractors at reasonable cost, reliably and promptly , and the property sold about 10 days after going public. Closing was seamless and efficient . Most important to me ,being 2000 miles away , she always responded to my email ,text, or verbal inquiries & questions in a matter of minutes/ hours, I was never kept waiting . Less than 60 days after going public ,the new owner was in the condo and the sale proceeds were delivered to my sister. Can’t ask for or expect better service that we received from Ms. Spechler.
Karen Spechler surpassed our expectations during the process of selling our home. We are extremely pleased with her knowledge, vast experience and expertise. We were aware that she is highly respected in Santa Barbara, which was one of the reasons we chose her to represent us. We trust Karen , her judgement and recommendations. Her integrity and work ethic is clearly evident, she worked hard on our behalf. She really is the best .
Can’t recommend Karen more enthusiastically. I had the challenge of living in NJ with the responsibility of selling my parents’ home is Santa Barbara and Karen took charge of the process from beginning to close. That included identifying and overseeing contractors who got the house ready for sale and a company to stage the house so it looked its very best. Karen also proactively managed and solved all of the inevitable “bumps in the road” that can occur during a house sale. My parents’ house sold quickly and at a fair price and that was due to Karen’s knowledge, professionalism and the care she gave throughout the process.
I live out of town and Karen took care of all our problems with selling my condo. I would highly recommend Karen. She answered all my telephone calls and e-mails immediately. Helped me get a gardener to clean up my yard and a person to do the needed repairs. She is a lovely lady.
Karen was wonderful to work with. Her knowledge, expertise, professionalism, communication, follow-through and warm personality are exceptional. I highly recommend working with Karen.
Karen was instrumental in expediting our sale and escrow processing for our move. She was professional in communicating with the new buyers and their delegates, and with us of course. The associates at Karen’s office were also capable and efficient in all their dealings. Berkshire Hathaway Realty is better because of Karen. The only disappointment was that Karen did not play her cello for us.

Karen, I am glad that I got to know you better, and that’s a gift! I always felt that you had heard me and had my interest at heart and you always know what was going on and what was possible and always called back. I am delighted to have participated in your success.

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.
Karen was simply superb! She arranged subcontractors to improve our property. She found a buyer immediately. She got the price we wanted. She was available, pleasant and professional. Karen has my highest recommendation. Thank you!
