"Karen is great to work with, very professional with attention to detail. She easily can access clients needs, found this location in a day after I told her what I was looking for. Karen was very  helpful with the entire process and offered contractors to work with some finishing details. I am pleased with the results." 

- Sharon Arthur


“During our MLS Search of properties and realtors, Karen and Andrew’s Website repeatedly caught our attention. Once we decided to proceed with buying a new home, we interviewed several realtors and immediately knew Karen and Andrew were the team we wanted to work with. Karen responded promptly to our requests and provided all answers to our questions as well as some additional information which she thought would be useful to use.

Although it was a sluggish market and selling our house was certainly challenging, Karen and Andrew met the challenge quickly and with complete success.  The marketing was extremely well done, showcasing the features of our home superbly and the advice we received on how to best show our property was always positive and spot on.  We always felt that our questions, input and suggestions were important and were met with patience, assurance and professionalism by Karen and Andrew.  Karen was extremely easy to contact and all correspondence was promptly returned so we never felt abandoned in any situation.  Throughout the entire process, we were kept fully informed of what was happening with the home we purchased and the home we sold.  As a result, we won the bidding war on our new home and had multiple offers on the house we sold.  We couldn’t be happier with the entire outcome of our real estate experience!  We truly have enjoyed our entire buying/selling process with Karen and Andrew and will certainly recommend them to anyone selling – or buying – a home in this area.

"My wife and I just sold our listing through Karen and Andrew Tannous. It has been a great pleasure dealing with such professionals. We had our listing with a different realtor and then decided to go with Karen after an experience that gave us an unfavorable view of the Real Estate world.

Karen has proven that even when the market is unpredictable, her communication and offers of ‘Open Houses” meant that we always were aware of what was going on. We believe her positive attitude made this sale possible. We would definitely recommend Karen to anyone who is looking for a realtor. We will keep in touch with Karen and use her expertise down the road. She really understands her clients and works hard to follow up on showings.

 Thank You Karen and Andrew,

Dal and Hardeep Dhatt”

To Future home buyers looking for a real estate agent:

It is a pleasure to wrtie this letter of reference for Karen Tannous.

For most people buying or selling a house; in our particular case selling, the age old question, "How do we find an agent that we can trust? In our case, word of mouth, asking various people that were selling, or had sold, who did you use and what was the experience and the result?

We decided to meet with 2 different agents. One of the agents had been recommeded by a family member who had recently sold her house, the other agent was recommended to us by an acquaintance who had recently sold her home aswell.

Part of our selection process for the 2 agents was to weigh their experience and exposure in the area we lived. We also wanted to ensure we felt comfortable and could talk frankly with our agent and could trust the individual After all we had a significant investment we would be entrusting them to sell. We phoned each agent and discussed our needs to sell our house. This prompted a personal meeting between us and the agent.

Our final decision, through much consideration, was Karen Tannous. Karen came totally prepared and ready to list our house on the spot. Her "presentation in print was impressive", having pulled up previous information on our house, pictures, detailed information on sales in the area; nothing was left out or overlooked. Our first impressions of Karen SOLD US, both personally and professionally.

After sitting down, discussing Karen's objectives on selling our house, and our expectations, we signed off on what was to be a very "un-stressful selling experience". Karen made a few suggestions on what we could do to make our home ready for sale. A few simple changes made a huge difference. The upside of the house showings is the house never looked so good, the downside, well it's a lot of work. We also had 2 small dogs to consider, and Karen always made sure we had good notice to show in order to have the house looking its best.

The one time Karen could not make showing, Karen's associate, Andrew, was there to show the house. He too was professionally presented and well versed on the home as he prepared the marketing materials for it. We had a flurry of hsowings the first 2 weeks, a number of offers and the SOLD sign went up after 15 days! Karen handled everything with complete professionalism throughout, even the low-ball offers.

The detail of the sale were worked out including closing dates that really worked for us. The odd isuse cropped up before closing, Karen dealt with those issues in our best interests, and there were no issues that couldn't be resolved.

We discussed staying in a bed and breakfast for about a month so we could move into our new home at our leisure; Karen recommended a B&B where we ended up staying which totally suited our needs AND accepted dogs.

Would we call Karen again to sell our house and help us purchase one? "ABSOLUTLEY!" Would we recommend Karen to family, friends and others? "WITHOUT A DOUBT!"

The sale for both Mary Ann and me was the most un-stressful selling experience we ever had, and we bought and sold few homes.

If you are contemplating a real estate agent, you can be "very sure" that Karen is your best choice, one who will work for your best interests, either buying or selling.

Sincerely and with regards!

Ray & Mary Ann Aldus

The Tincklers have had a working relationship with Karen Tannous for six and a half years during which time we have successfully concluded 3 very satisfactory real estate transactions.
 
We believe that one would be hard pressed to find a more dedicated professional realtor to represent you.
 
She always had her clients' interests in the forefront and works hard to provide a satisfactory conclusion to a sale or purchase, as the case may be, always reachable to resolve concerns and to accommodate dates for both parties involved.
  
We feel that we could not have fared better and will always consider Karen a friend and wise counsel.

Sincerely,

Edda & Austin Tinckler

"I want to thank you very much for helping me with the sale of my home in South Surrey.  Also, in finding just the right Condominium for me.  Coming from a fairly large home and lot, I had quite a list of things I wanted in a Condo and I am very happy to say that you found it.  As it turned out this Condo was a foreclosure property, with quite a number of lenghthy and time consuming legal items that you had to work diligently on for me in the purchase of this Condo.  I am so grateful to you that it all worked out and without too much for me to worry about.

In a very short time after our first meeting I felt comfortable with you and I could see that you took your job and profession very seriously.  I was glad that I took my brother's advice to have you as my Real Estate Salesperson.

You were always very courteous and knew the real estate market very well.  There never was any pressure on your part to sell my home at less than I felt was fair nor to buy a Condo above my set purchase dollar value."

Personal Regards,

Mrs Grace Gunderson

"Karen Tannous is a professional who gets the job done.  In our sale, she used everything within her means to get exposure for our property.  she did everything that she said she would do, in a timely manner, and provided feedback and advice to us where needed.  Besides being a professional, Karen is also a kind, friendly person with a good sense of humour.  We were impressed that she introduced who she was and where she came from in her initial introduction to us.

I would not hesitate to recommend Karen Tannous as your realtor, in fact we have already recommeded her to several friends and neighbours.  We were very pleased with her service we received and the manner in which our sale was handled.

Thank you, Karen.  We'll be in touch next time we sell."

"We want to express our heartfelt appreciation for your services in the sale of our home in South Surrey.  We had two other local real estate firms come to discuss the proposal of selling our home and we were very pleased that we agreed to use you as our realtor.  It was quite clear at our first meeting that your professionalism outshone the other realtors we had contacted.  In a very short time your had all the appropriate (and true) property comparisons to our home ready.  We felt comfortable and were able to proceed with an agreed listing price.

You were always very courteous and professional and we felt very secure in the fact that you were looking after the sale of our home.  When other agents came to the house for a showing, you were always there to make sure the house was secure and locked up afterward.

Heather and I also want to thank you for showing us quite a number of homes that we wanted to see in Surrey White Rock area.  You had researched the listings, knew your product and arranged to show us only the type of home we were looking for and always within our price range.  There was never any pressure to buy or look at homes above our price limit.

We would not hesitate to recommend you to family or close friends, wanting to sell their property or that may be looking for real estate in the Surrey, White Rock area."

Personal Regards,

"We both particularly appreciated your ability to remain neutral when we were deliberating over two different home.  Your neutrality made it easier for us to work through our requirements and to choose the right home for us.  You bargained hard on our behalf and we were astonished when our first offer was accepted with no counter offer from the sellers.  Most importantly, your attention after moving in to our new house was truly fantastic.  You called repeatedly to ensure that previously agreed upon repairs were in fact completed.  You pursued these issues until we were satisfied."

"The intent of this letter is to serve as our recognition of the fine work accomplished by Karen Tannous, acting as our Real Estate Agent during a recent antion-wide relocation.  At all times she was friendly, courteous and highly informative, providing us with pertinent information, while respecting our guidelines as to price and locations.  She new we had a limited time (approximately one week) to spend in the area during this visit, and together after only four or five days we had accomplished our goal of finding a new home.  Further, Karen offered to help coordinate the process of interior painting and cleaning to ensure that all was in order for us on time for our arrival in White Rock.  In addition, she helped our daughter and son-in-law find rental accommodation."
