There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a South Bay real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the South Bay, San Pedro and Rancho Palos Verdes areas, please contact me.

|You and your team are artists, true professionals. I cannot express how highly impressed I am with you. You rock! Really! You do all these things for your clients that you don’t even mention to us – rather you say, “Don’t worry about a thing, I’ll take care of everything, just sit back and wait for the offers to come in…”, and you sure do just that. You consistently go the extra mile in all that you do Karen – an extra 100 miles! You have done this ever since we met. I appreciate it so very much. I thank you for all that you do from the bottom of my heart.|
|Karen Anderson is the most ethical and knowledgeable person I have ever met. With that being said, Karen has another gift that blesses her other talents, and that is “True Empathy” for her clients situations. You can feel that in her Spirit, see it in her Eyes and hear it in her Voice. Empathy is a gift. Ethics and knowledge are talent. Together you have an outstanding human being and talented agent.|
|Karen was way more available and accessible than anyone I've ever worked with. She took way more than a fair share of abuse with our impatience at the system she had no control over.|
|Karen went above and beyond the normal level of satisfaction across the board!|

|Karen did an excellent job for us. Karen treated us as serious buyers even though she know we could not buy until the home we owned was sold. When we met Karen, our home was listed with another agent. It didn't sell within the listing agreement period. We took it off the market, reevaluated our situation and gave the listing to Karen. It sold right away! Karen is very generous with her time. She listened very well to what we stated we wanted and needed. She paid attention to our nonverbal reaction and off handed comments as well. She clarified out needs very quickly. On the first day of looking at the properties she took us to several properties. One of these was a place very similar to the place we bought. Karen was extremely easy to reach which calmed our anxieties and facilitated clearing up obstacles in the process. Karen has a cadre of contractors available to help prepare a hone for sale/do improvements on newly purchased property. This saved a lot of time and aggravation. Karen worked hard, kept her promises and stayed on top of things so the process moved forward as smoothly as possible. We highly recommend Karen to other buyers and sellers.|
|Karen stayed involved with me for many months and never gave up on me. Karen was always willing to meet me to show property or make offers, no matter the time of day or evening. I appreciate the fact that she was so patient with me. I am happy with the property I ended up with. Good job and much thanks!|
|Karen helped us buy our new house and sell our old house. She went out of her way to help us in a number of areas and we are really grateful to her for her help. She is knowledgeable, hard-working, courteous, and supportive. We couldn't have done it without her.|

I found my lifeline. She listened, acted and provided. If you want results, professionalism, and thoroughness from start to finish then team up with Karen Anderson at Keller Williams and get the results you want.|
|A professional provides you with dedication, professionalism and results! Karen Anderson has all these attributes. She listened, she heard what my desires and wants were and we turned them into an action plan. She found me my “dream house” and walked me through the whole process. Not only did I find a realtor for life, I found a friend as well!|
|Karen had a particularly thorny problem facing her in the sale of my Dodson Ave. property here in San Pedro. The property was very unique, and was sure to appeal to a very small market. On top of that, the home had a lot of deferred maintenance and deferred upgrades. Karen brought in a professional decorator and a team to redo the kitchen and baths. Under Karen’s direction the team put in Travertine floors, refurnished and repainted. Karen then advertised the home using an aggressive multimedia campaign. I was extremely pleased with the quick sale. And I got my price. Karen then arranged the purchase and financing on my current home here in South Shores. Karen has added value to my real estate experiences as both seller and buyer. She found me a great deal on a property that was ideal for my lifestyle. And she arranged better financing than I could have gotten through my own bank, even though I have excellent credit and a long-standing relationship with my bank. I know that because I tried to secure my own financing. Next time I do a real estate deal, Karen will be my broker.|
