Karen Lower is amazing. She came highly recommended to us from three different referrals, and we knew instantly that we trusted her with our most important investment. We had a tight timeline and she worked late evenings and every weekend to accommodate us. Karen isn’t just a savvy realtor, she has a designer’s eye. She and her team helped pretty and clean up the house in days: they swapped out light fixtures, hauled trash, demoed a gazebo, hung pictures, laid rugs, and brought in all manner of decorations. They rearranged our furniture. They made the place breathe. The transformation was stunning. She helped us price aggressively and we sold the house for significantly over asking in one week with multiple offers.
Selling your house is never easy. We had lovingly renovated it, raised our kids in it, celebrated so many major milestones in it. It was painful for our kids to deal with all this change, and Karen guided us through it all, one day at a time, with wisdom and calm and focus.

When my husband and I decided to sell our restored Spanish home in Los Feliz, we met with several real estate agents, but we listed with Karen Lower. Here’swhy: She’s different! Besides knowing her stuff, Karen is highly intelligent; She listens; She cares about your house as much as you and she understands that the realtor and the clients are a team. Karen is formidable. At our initial meeting, she didn’t just show up with a computer-generated list of comparable homes, she had a keen knowledge of how each of the properties compared and contrasted with ours. But what was even more impressive is that she arrived armed with a plan tailored to make our home stand out from the competition. Karen’s suggested listing price was quite a bit higher than what had been quoted to us by others, but she backed it up with data and an inherent belief in our home’s intrinsic value and appeal.
Always mindful of our pocketbook, Karen made strategic suggestions, such as changing the color of the exterior wood trim and moving our furniture and artwork in a way that staged the house and highlighted it’s architecture. She then immediately brought in her crew to do the job. These minor, inexpensive changes eventually yielded mighty results. Within a week, we were on the market and not long after our first open house, we received an offer very close to our asking price.
Los Angeles has many competent Realtors, but if you want an agent who is head and shoulders above the fray and you want to be represented with integrity and grace, you will not be disappointed by hiring Karen Lower and her team.

If you are in need of a Realtor, the only person you need to call is Karen Lower. Her dedication to the entire process is what sets her above the rest. She and her husband Geoffrey,(who is also a Realtor) worked tirelessly to get my house sold. At every juncture, she would go above and beyond what you would expect from a Realtor. I will forever be grateful and thankful to Karen for her hard work. She is passionate about her profession, and also a wonderful, caring human being! Her abilities and awareness were reassuring as she came alongside me through the process of selling my home. I feel truly blessed to have had her by my side.

My husband and I have lived in Silverlake in the same house for over 35 years. Our Realtor Karen Lower made the painful task of selling possible. She supported us emotionally, and she helped us with the myriad of tasks we had to face in selling a lovely but older home. We are thankful that we chose her to be our Realtor.
