***** Stars We can’t say enough about Karen Funk.

This was the second house she has sold for us and we could not be further impressed by her professionalism, skill, and willingness to go the extra mile to close the deal. She worked closely with us throughout the entire process—from our initial contact all the way through the closing—keeping us in the loop every step of the way (even when we were traveling across the country to our new home) and ensuring we understood all of our options. She provided frank, useful advice on how to prepare our home for sale, connected us with a great contractor to make the necessary repairs, and personally ensured that everything was done to her specifications. She made this a very easy process for us. We would not choose anyone else in California to sell a home for us.

*****Stars Apr 12, 2019 Karen is a very energized real estate agent.

She uses her energy and long time real estate experience to make buying or selling a home smooth and stress free. If you are looking to get your home sold fast, I would call Karen.

My wife and I worked with Masson and Ruth.

As first time home buyers, we felt well informed because they walked us through the process in detail and answered all of our questions. They also showed what sorts of things to be wary of when evaluating houses during showings. Although the housing market is super competitive, they helped us find several houses that fit our budget without pressuring us to bid higher than we were comfortable. They worked with us patiently for 4 months and we finally closed on the house that we really wanted!

*****Stars 8 weeks ago Outstanding sells and marketing realtor!

Karen's character was beyond reproach, in providing her unique, personable creative skills in finding the home in which were my personal desires. Karen has great knowledge and understanding of the housing market in positioning me in getting best possible home for my budget. I'm very thankful to have her as my agent and I would hire her again in a heartbeat to sell my current home and in finding my future home! Keep up the good work Karen!

Dear Masson, Thank you for helping us in buying our first home.

I'm sure a lot of other first time home buyers will probably tell you the same, but we've learned a lot about the process from you and Ruth. Thank you for your patience as we were solidifying what sorts of things we wanted in a house and for not pressuring us to raise our budget. We are glad to have worked with you and will gladly refer you to others who are searching for real estate agents!

Best regards, Daniel and Cynthia Tai

"Ruth was amazing!! She kept me in the loop every step of the way, she explained everything clearly to make sure it made sense and didn’t skip the fine lines. She was very punctual and made the process go by smoothly with very little stress. (Not like other agents I’ve worked with) I had bad experiences before her but Ruth changed my perspective on how buying a home should be. It’s very obvious she is well educated in the industry and shared a lot of very important knowledge with me, which to me is very important when making such a huge investment. (You don’t ever want it to be just a pen and paper process, you want to be educated on what your doing when buying a home). She was able to answer questions that most other well known agents I’ve spoken with didn’t have a clue about. I had almost bought a home with a completely different agent, the two loan officers that he had me working with kept me hangin for days and weeks, lied to me about everything and were calling me at work trying to have me make phone calls that they should’ve been taking care of. It was beyond stressful. And if I didn’t read the docs they tried to rush me to sign I would’ve put myself into a really bad situation being they decided to change them at the last minute without telling me. Thank goodness for Ruth and her girls, they had compassion and integrity and were good at making things happen quick. They didn’t have me doing all the legwork like the other loan officers did. They were there to help and definitely went the extra mile to make things happen. I’m beyond grateful I did business with Ruth, She’s one of a kind. My only regret is not going to her in the first place. Thanks Ruth! You’re the best! :)"

"Ruth helped our family negotiate our first home purchase. From the daily search to find a home to handing us the keys to the home we fell in love with. During the process Ruth went from our Realtor to our trusted friend. She's knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and dedicated. My wife and I could not speak more highly of her. Ruth is and will be, our go to person for all of our real estate needs."

"I just bought my first home and literally could not have gotten through the process without Ruth. She was my rock through the whole transaction. She was always the first one to call with updates and exciting news and was even there as a shoulder to cry on when I was overwhelmed. She absolutely went above and beyond for me and would recommend her to everyone!!"

"Ruth is the best agent ever. She goes above and beyond for her clients. She is very knowledgeable about the entire home buying and selling process, much more than other agents I have met and dealt with. She works very hard on behalf of her clients, and deals with any issues head on. She helped us buy our first house 8 years ago and did an amazing job. She most recently helped us purchase a mobile home for our parents and was there every step of the way, even helping after we had already moved them in. We ran into a number of issues during the mobile home purchase, with sellers and parks, all of which Ruth was on top of so we didn't have to worry. We will definitely use Ruth and her team for any of our real estate needs in the future."

"Ruth is the best agent ever. She checks in with you at least once a week making sure that your doing well and see if you have any questions. If something needs her attention she solves it. On properties she's very polite to the occupants, and or other agents.. You'd do worse by selecting a different realtor than Ruth"

"I needed to find, purchase, and move into a house in less than a month. Ruth made that happen. I know that my experience was probably an exception however I know that Ruth will do her best to make your experience a positive one."
