We decided it was time to sell our condo; however, 17 years of renters had taken its toll on our place. Karen McCabe made selling our property a stress-free process. Our goal was to get the unit up quickly. Karen’s strong understanding of market trends and insight on beneficial improvements we needed to make, helped us come up with a plan. Karen helped us find reliable contractors that did excellent work, quickly, and at a good price. Once the unit was ready, Karen then helped us understand and navigate the process of putting our unit on the market. We had multiple offers within 2 days and sold the unit above the asking price. Karen understood our time constraints and we were able to close in under a month. We would highly recommend using Karen McCabe in buying or selling your property.

"This is my second experience working with Karen in a real estate transaction because she is the absolute best! I would not trust anyone else to the job of managing such an important transaction as selling a home. I had everything riding on this home sale, and she delivered above and beyond! From start to finish, Karen significantly reduced the stress of selling my home with how organized, knowledgeable, and invested she is. She knows exactly what she is doing to get the best possible outcome! I Highly HIGHLY recommend Karen McCabe if you want a realtor who is forthcoming, honest, hard-working, communicative, professional, with an exceptional scope of knowledge, and cares deeply above all."

My family has been working with Karen McCabe since July, 2020. I have been putting off writing this review because I cannot figure out how to put into words just how amazing she has been to our family. Before going further in this review, I feel it’s important to call out that prior to July, 2020 we had never met Karen. She had no connection to our family or close friends - yet as you are about to see, she provided us with truly best in class service! As a professional - Karen is very well connected to other realtors and to residents in the Arlington Heights community. Nearly every time a house went up that met our criteria, she acted quickly and succeeded in securing us the first showing. She is credible and upholds the highest integrity. She is also very well informed of the market and current regulations and is careful to abide by them in every situation. As a human being - Karen is all that you could hope for in a realtor.

Karen McCabe of Coldwell Banker & I worked together for over 6 months looking for a house suitable for my needs. Always professional, patient and gracious, Karen was a tremendous help in finding and negotiating the purchase of my new home. Once that was accomplished, we listed my current house and had a signed contract in less than 2 weeks! I credit her advice, knowledge and insight for making that possible. Her help and support was truly invaluable during this process. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

This woman is magical. She finds unicorns on the regular, I swear. We've worked with her personally to find two homes now, both with ridiculously restrictive requirements, and she came through on both in record time. I've sent several friends her way because when people you care about need a new home, they don't just need a good realtor; they need THIS realtor.

Karen did a great job of helping my wife and I clarify our priorities for the features of importance in our search and finally buying a home in Aurora. With a family member with special needs, we had to evaluate each ranch home we looked at in terms of what it would cost to make the required ADA changes for our family member, and the availability of support services in the area. Karen worked with us on locations far-and-wide, including Woodstock and Aurora, and all points in between. Karen also helped us sell our home in Arlington Heights, in our downsizing process. She was always timely and accurate with her responses to our needs, and has a great sense of humor. She has a good network of fellow realtors. I am glad that we found Karen and hired her as our realtor.

My husband and I were first time home buyers and needless to say we required a lot of guidance. Karen was there every step of the way. She was always helpful and worked hard to get us what we wanted in a home. Buying a house can be a tough process, but Karen made it easy and we had fun along the way

Kristen Conrad - Seller

Karen is very knowledgable of the process and is very helpful throughout the whole process. Karen will give you honest feedback and work for you 100%

Mike E - Buyer

"We knew we wanted to move to Arlington Heights and School District 25. We didn't know much else about the area, and we were very fortunate to run into Karen at an open house she was having. We didn't like that particular house, but Karen talked with us for 20 minutes answering our questions, and she is extremely knowledgeable about this area. We decided to go with Karen and we were extremely satisfied with her service, her expertise, and her personal touch in the real estate buying process. We are thrilled with our new house and would highly recommend Karen and her team!"
