“Karen Dunn did a great job, first by thoroughly pre-approving her Buyers; there was also some additional details that required her to get additional underwriting approval prior to her clients making an offer on my listing. As a Listing Agent, I thoroughly check Buyer's creditworthiness and knowing they have a great Loan Officer who will follow thru, is responsive, pays attention to details, communicates effectively, is seasoned and keeps up with current loan processing requirements is critical for a successful close of escrow for all our clients. It was a pleasure working with Karen, and I would highly recommend her…”

Karen and her team were terrific. They were always available to answer our question or concerns promptly. As many of you know, buying and selling a house can be stressful, however Karen and her team went above and beyond to ensure the process went a smoothly as possible. My family and I would highly recommend Karen to all of our family and friends!

Karen was amazing! My husband and I we're first time home buyers with extremely hectic schedules. Karen did everything possible to work with us including responding to my emails and texts on her weekend and extremely early mornings. She explained every single step and made sure we understood everything! She continues to answer my random questions even a month after the closing. I would recommend her to anyone searching for a home. I couldn't be more satisfied with her service. -Nydia

I was in an extraordinary environment of stress and transition. Karen was patient and detailed. She was absolutely perfect!

-Bill L.

I have worked with lots of loan officers. Some are good, some are better and a few are awesome. Karen is definitely one of the best I have ever had to pleasure of working with. She always kept me updated about our client's loan situation, even if it was after hours or on the weekend. In this very competitive market where sellers receive multiple offers, having the name of a great loan officer like Karen can make the difference between getting that offer accepted or not. She is highly recommended by me and I look forward to working with her again.


Karen Dunn just assisted us in a re-finance of our home. She made an effort to see that we were personally contacted just about every day with an update on the status of the project. If we were going to purchase a home, or re-finance again, we would go to her without hesitation. She made an experience which can be intimidating and confusing easy to follow, and almost fun.

Karen has made every good transaction great. What she does with the clients that need help or need to wait a little bit is amazing. She takes the time get to know the client and walk them through what needs to be done and even if they come back later still not ready. Karen will take the time to talk to them and answer questions. She is a level 5 loan officer and one of my go to sources. Karen gets it Dunn.

Karen was the absolute best! She was extremely helpful throughout this whole process, and was always asking if there was more she could do. Karen answered every single one of my questions (believe me, there was a lot!) and never once made me feel like I was bugging her. I couldn't have asked for a better person to walk me though the first and one of the biggest purchases of my life. Thank you so much Karen!
