Client Testimonials:

"Karla was outstanding in every step of the process. We could not have been more pleased or had a better realtor!! She is definitely “top drawer”!! Karla kept us informed after every family had seen our home. Our home went on the market on a Thursday, we had showings on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday before the Open House on Sunday. Our first offer came on Thursday (the 1st day). After the Open House, Karla called with 2 more. We signed the contract Monday morning. What more could you ask of your realtor."

"Karla was an absolute pleasure to work with. She was professional and knowledgeable when it came to guiding us through the process of selling our home, and again when buying our new home! She really helped us get top dollar when selling our home, which helped us get our new dream home! I felt like I could call her anytime with questions and advice, and she was always glad to hear from me, no matter how small the question was! I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a top notch realtor!"

"I am truly amazed at the talent, professionalism, experience, proficiency, efficiency, and knowledge of Karla in the real estate business and market. Frankly, I was skeptical at the price she recommended due to the uncertainly of the market at the progression of covid-19; everything went smoothly with her and her team from the beginning. She exudes confidence and devotion of her profession and an aptitude for market research and analysis to arrive at the optimal price. The brochure that one of her team produced was remarkable, awesome and par excellence, and attracted a significant number of visits. Having the deal closed with full price within three days was beyond my expectations and wildest imaginations. It is said that location is everything in the real estate market, but may I add that ‘agent, agent, agent’ is just as critical and important and she is highly esteemed in my humble opinion. Without any doubt, Karla is a blessing to us."

“Karla did an outstanding job! She helped me secure me my dream lakefront lot in Lake Linganore. This was not an easy deal as I was trying to convince the seller to sell me the lot as it had a builder tie in. I tried on my own for 6 months but the seller wouldn’t budge. Within 2 months Karla secured the deal no builder tie in. Would recommend her to anyone and everyone!”


“My mother and I had an absolutely wonderful experience with Karla Pinato. She was friendly, knowledgeable, proactive, and extremely helpful with any questions and concerns that came up during our selling process.
