    My Client Testimonials

    Karen worked as hard as she possibly could for me. I could call her at 10 PM and she¿d have a contract offer written by 10:15. She is a tireless asset for any buyer and I¿d assume the same for any seller. Karen is and will continue to be the go to agent for my family and I. And I will strongly recommend her to any friend that may be in need of her and her team¿s hard work. ~ Matthew Bavar Sulphur Louisiana
    Karen Barker was referred to us by a trustworthy friend. I am glad I made that phone call. She is now part of the family. She always looked out out for our best interest and went beyond to find what we needed. She now has our complete trust and we will always use her in the future. Trust is a big thing to us especially in this world today. Karen will always do what's right and my family is now glad to call her a friend. ~ Mike Goins Leesville, La.
    When it came time to sell my house I knew Karen was the only agent I needed to call. Her hard work and dedication combined with her extensive knowledge of the area has always proven to be a winning match. Karen had my house under contract in 2 days!! I would not hesitate to call her again should I ever need to sell any other property, residential or commercial. ~ Chris Tumey, Lake Charles, LA
    I think my answers states my feelings and experience with Karen Barker. ~ Albert and Kathi AndrePont, 930 Toulouse Dr
    Karen was a referral from a friend. We were moving from 1000 miles away and desperately needed someone who was not only a go-getter but also very connected to the community and didnt mind going the extra mile . Karen went above and beyond for our family. I never had to ask her to go look at a property. If we sent her one via text or email, she was on it. Even if I hadnt asked her to go look at it, being 1000 miles away, sometime she would let me know a couple hours later that she had already gone and looked at it and knew that it wouldnt fit our family or it was promising and had taken a video already and was ready to do a FaceTime walkthrough. She was knowledgeable, friendly, professional, and fun. Karen not only knows real estate thoroughly but also knows houses. See saw things in houses that we hadnt even considered.. She was exactly what we were looking for. Assertive, go-getter that wasnt bound by typical business hours I cant say enough about this agency and Karen Barker as an agent. I would recommend to anyone and plan on using them in the future. Karen was a belling to our family. We were a difficult sale and Karen never made us feel as such. ~ Tara Wilken, Lake Charles
    Mrs. Karen was, as Tina Turner would say, simply the best! She was extremely knowledgeable in every area, and guided us every step of the way in this buying process. She made sure things were taken care of in a timely manner, and continued to help us after closing to ensure we would be comfortable in our new home. I cant say enough good things about Mrs. Karen, and anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home should give her a call...shes better than all the rest!! ~ A. Moore, Lake Charles
    She has such great attention to detail and she has an I am on it, dont worry attitude. We loved her. ~ Kayla Fairchild - Lake Charles, LA

    My wife and I were new to the area and we were walking at the park one day and it started to rain. Ms Karen saw us walking in the rain with our 6 month old and our dog and offered us a ride. Though conversation we learned that Ms. Karen was a realtor. At that point we decided that when we were ready to buy a house we would use her as our realator because she was so kind to us. Therefore, we knew she would have our best interest in mind. ~ Shannon maheia Lake Charles, LA

    Karen was very patient with me through a long home selection purchase. I was very particular about what I wanted even if I didn't know it yet. She was patient with me throughout the process even when I completely changed what I was looking for multiple times. When we did find what I was looking for she went above and beyond in helping me deal with the contractor through the final stages of construction and even after closing with absolutely everything I needed help with because I wasn't living in town yet. You're in the best hands with Karen! ~ Niel Patel, Lake Charles
    Karen was the best sales agent I've ever had. Her knowledge of the local market, and experience with regards to the sale and purchase of my home was first class. I truly believe that she is the best agent in the Calcasieu Parish area. I will be using her again for my next homes in the future. If you need a home sold, Karen can get it done and she will fight for you on both sides of the deal. Thank you Karen! ~ Derek & Erica Corkran
