I would like to say how fortunate my wife and I feel to have had Karen Binnarr as our buyer’s agent. At one point in our self-managed lake house search in Anderson, SC, we called Karen’s agency about a listed property, and Karen just happened to answer the phone. By the time I hung up, I was completely impressed by her knowledge of local real estate in the Lake Hartwell area, plus the real estate market on the whole. She was incredibly engaging and helpful without being at all pushy…even to a complete stranger. We quickly arranged a meeting with Karen to engage her as our buyer’s agent and continued to be impressed by her knowledge, guidance, thoroughness, and responsiveness throughout the entire home search process. In the face of issues, she was a stabilizing presence…always knowing how to respond and react when issues or concerns arose. We were relocating from out of state, so it wasn…

By the time I hung up, I was completely impressed by her knowledge of local real estate in the Lake Hartwell area, plus the real estate market on the whole. She was incredibly engaging and helpful without being at all pushy…even to a complete stranger. We quickly arranged a meeting with Karen to engage her as our buyer’s agent and continued to be impressed by her knowledge, guidance, thoroughness, and responsiveness throughout the entire home search process. In the face of issues, she was a stabilizing presence…always knowing how to respond and react when issues or concerns arose. We were relocating from out of state, so it wasn’t always easy for us to come to Anderson to see properties, so she would frequently visit properties herself on our behalf and share her thoughts with us. This saved us so much time (while costing her much time) and is just reflective of the diligence that Karen brings to her job. On top of it all, Karen was also so pleasant and friendly. We enjoyed getting to know her and would strongly recommend her to anyone with real estate needs in the Anderson/Lake Hartwell area.
I would recommend Karen without hesitation to anyone looking for a real estate agent that is a true partner in the process. Karen is very detail oriented. She does her due diligence prior to setting down with the client and continues to work for the client in every stage of the process as a partner and advisor with the client's best interest at heart. She has exceptional people skills and I found her always available, even at times/days that were not the most convenient. Finally, she is smart, both in the business sense and fundamental common sense. Negotiating real estate deals requires more than a license, it requires a passion. Karen's passion for her work and clients are what sets her apart from others.
Let me first start by saying you need to work with Karen if you are buying or selling a home! She is amazing! Coming from a first-time home buyer, yes we were excited but had limited knowledge of the whole home-buying process and the current market situation. But Karen stepped in and helped my fiancé and me through the entire process step by step. She is very educated and makes sure you are as well about the whole home buying process and breaks the real estate terms down to something you understand. We told her what we were looking for, and she went over and beyond to find us our dream home in this very competitive market with have right now. She has wonderful communication, and personality, and overall is great to work with! Would highly recommend it. And when we go to resell and purchase again we will be working with her!
Laura helped my Husband and me with the purchase of our first home in Pendleton. We could not have dreamt of a better REALTOR. She is such an absolute pleasure to work with. She was always available to help with any questions we had. She provided detailed updates and kept us informed throughout the home buying.
I feel like we hit the lottery when we found Karen to help us with our search for a new home. She was patient and helped direct us on our path with professionalism and knowledge of the areas, and knowledge of properties that were beyond belief. She pointed out details both good and bad to help us to make good decisions for ourselves. Once we found a property, she stayed on top of every detail with all parties to make sure the timelines were met. Her arsenal of knowledge, her patience, and her determination to help her customers find a new home is her passions of Karen. If I could find her 100 stars I would! She's the best!
Professional, prompt, expert, caring, dedicated, and energetic are a few words to describe Laura! She is an expert in the field and I highly recommend her! Throughout our home-buying process, she was readily available, accommodating, and genuinely cared about our process. She is the best of the best! Thank you Laura for everything!
Buying a house for the first time is a stressful, frightening, and exhilarating experience. As first-time homebuyers, we needed someone who could hold our hand throughout the process, provide honest advice, and be our advocate when we needed it. Laura wasn't only our REALTOR, she became our counselor, confidant, and champion when sellers tried to shaft us. She rose about the pack, managing all the moving parts, and found us a lovely home we can now call our own. Laura's experience, passion, and positivity are hard to match. We really can't speak highly enough about Laura, she is awesome!
Karen is a fantastic agent, whether buying or selling. Very knowledgeable and super informative throughout the entire home sale process, easy to work with, and is as diligent as can be. I’ve been in the home inspection industry for 17 years, so I’ve met and worked with hundreds of REALTORS you will not find a better one, I promise you.
We have bought and sold +10 homes in the past 40 years, and no REALTOR has been so informative, supportive, professional, and has demonstrated the highest levels of integrity, as Karen. Being 4 hours away during this buying process, Karen went well beyond in helping us identify the right home, and right area and secure a fair purchase. Highly recommend Karen as your REALTOR during your next search, as we have done in recent weeks for other interested parties buying in the Lake Hartwell area. Thank you, Karen!
Amazing! Coming from a first-time home buyer, I was intimidated by the process and Karen helped me through the entire process step by step. Wasn't hard at all! I told her what I was looking for, and she found me my dream property within an hour of it being listed. Great communication, personality, and overall a pleasure to work with! Would highly recommend it.
This is the second time we have used Karen Binnarr as our REALTOR. This second time she coordinated a fairly complicated contingency sale and represented us as both seller and buyer. I cannot say enough good things. She is so good. She is on top of everything, acknowledges every text, advises, comforts, negotiate in the sticky spots, and always had our backs. Thank you, Karen!
I would highly recommend Laura Brammer to anyone trying to buy a house. From our first meeting, I knew she was the perfect match for my husband and me. She took everything from our wish list and helped us find the perfect house. She was completely honest with her opinion when we were looking at houses and we are so grateful for that! We are first-time home buyers and Laura helped make the process easy and as stress-free as it could be. Anyone would be lucky to work with her!
This is the second time that Karen has helped us find a home. She is always very responsive and ready to show any homes you want to see. Her negotiating skills are spot on! This time she also helped us sell our home. We put our house on the market during the winter which is usually slower, however, due to her marketing strategies our home sold in one day! I am sure that if she is still willing to help us we will use her services again!
Laura was amazing! She walked us through our home-buying process so well. She was our REALTOR during a difficult time in the housing market, and she kept us encouraged and hopeful. She was quick to respond to questions, kept us informed of important deadlines and procedures, and she has been available even after our closing for advice. I cannot more highly recommend Laura Brammer!
