I can't say enough about Karen Williamson as a competent professional and a person of high integrity. She made our real estate searches and transactions enjoyable. She's happy to do the many parts of her job and also happy to help others understand the complicated world of real estate.
Karen was consistently responsive throughout the long search for our perfect home.When we had questions (and we had a lot of them), she had thorough, honest answers. If she didn't have an answer she found it for us - days, nights, weekends and holidays.
We always felt that Karen took a personal interest in us. She was patient and persistent but never pushy. She knows when to stay close and when to step back and give time to think and talk over our options.
We highly recommend Karen Williamson as a real estate professional and a neighbor. With a lifetime of experience on the island, she knows about all things Maui and is always eager to understand new things. She's an absolute gem.
Wow! Karen is an incredible Realtor! She made our entire transaction smooth and easy. There were several times in the process that she helped us navigate some challenges, and she did it with grace, diplomacy, and consummate professionalism. Her personal attention really provided a sense of care and concern. We give her our highest recommendation!
Karen is one of the most kind, compassionate realtor/brokers I've come across. She is relaxed, gives you time and good solutions. We had a death in the family and had to sell our house. Karen was right there any time we needed her. She has calm integrity and helped us through our difficult situation greatly. The sale went smoothly thanks to her. She kept us informed each step of the way. Felt very blessed having her help us.
I found Karen Williamson's name on the web when I searched for "the best realtor in Kihei". I deeply thank the persons who wrote a review about her services and steered us to her! The reviews were extremely positive and we would experience that they were right on the money.
When I first contacted Karen by email, months before our trip to Maui, she immediately answered. Her pleasant and welcoming message reflected the genuine and kind personality that we would get to know in our 3-month journey, in search of a vacation rental condo in the Kihei-area.
We benefitted from Karen's extensive knowledge of the condo and single-family home market, both inventory and process, and with its Hawaii/Maui peculiarities. Because of her long experience and her pleasant personality, Karen has good rapport with a lot of the local real estate players, which helps with scheduling viewing and with negotiations after making offers.
Karen is a good listener and she took her time to get to know us, and to learn what we were looking for. She is very generous with her time, and she guided us in analyzing our various wishes and options for buying real-estate. She will drive you around to see the listings you may be interested in, even if it is a listing that is an hour's drive away. Karen is very responsive and we could always reach her. She was always willing to talk to us even on her days off.
Karen has been on Maui for a long time and you can tell she cares for the island and the people. She is aware of the hardships that some islanders have to contend with, due to the rising real estate values. She does her best to pay back, by working for the local population, by spreading Aloha.
We strongly recommend Karen to those who are looking for a real-estate agent on Maui. We will remember finding our condo as a journey guided by the most knowledgeable, professional, pleasant and kind agent you can imagine: Karen Williamson. Carolien A
Karen is just awesome. She is a fantastic realtor and just a really great person on top of that who exudes so many positive vibes. We live in Seattle and wanted to look for a house during a relatively short trip, and Karen was so helpful in helping us narrow the properties to look at in person and lined everything up in such an efficient way. We also tremendously appreciated her local market knowledge (from growing up in Maui) about neighborhoods and important things to consider if you intend to rent it at all. She also made the process easy to execute from afar and offered many times to help smooth any bumps when we were not present on island. I highly recommend Karen, and truly can't say enough positive things about her.
Steve and I are soooo happy with our new home made possible by Karen. We live in California so we depended on her for closing the deal -she not only did this very successfully but did so much more-negotiating with the seller, assuring we were well informed and always made herself available!! We met Karen years ago and entrusted her to sell our first property here in Maui 9 years ago! She has successfully established herself as a top, first rate professional realtor and business owner. Congratulations, Karen, on your success- and you do it with so much finesse, professionalism and business knowledge. Cheers!
We recently had the pleasure of dealing with Karen Williamson as we sold our condo in Kihei. We were actually in the market for a realtor and were actively interviewing several on Maui when we received a letter from Karen expressing her client's interest in our property. From this simple letter a completely painless real estate transaction ensued. Karen is many things - knowledgeable, smart, and tenacious, amongst other attributes, but above all else, Karen is a lovely and genuine person. A personable warmth radiates through her, and you just KNOW that you're dealing with an honest and caring individual. What a great package!! We have bought and sold many properties on Maui over the last couple of decades, but my husband and I agree that this transaction was the least traumatic, smoothest process we've ever been through, because of Karen. Please use her services, you will not be disappointed.
What a pleasure it was to work with Karen at Maui Earth Realty, Our home search took us a year to find our perfect home in Maui's hot real estate market and Karen was there with us every step of the way, She was very diligent and asked questions of buyers that I never would of thought to ask. She covers all the details and makes the buying experience stress free! I definitely recommend her for all your Maui real estate needs.
We were referred to Karen through a family friend and it was one of the best referrals we have ever received! We couldn't have been happier with Karen! She works quickly and is very knowledgeable about the real estate market in Maui. She figured out our likes and dislikes very quickly and helped us to find the perfect property. She did a fantastic job on getting all of questions answered (and there were a lot since we were new to the market!) as well as resolving some concerns that came up in regards to the property. Karen has also been a great resource for referrals on the island for insurance, housekeeping & repairs. We couldn't recommend anyone more then Karen!
