Karen helped me buy my first house. I hardly knew anything that I had to do but Karen helped me thru every step of the way. She was very informative and answered any questions I might of had. I will definitely use her when I am ready to buy my next house, and would recommend her to anybody trying to buy a house.

We really had a good time with you as our real estate agent, you were very helpful and patient with us and worked around our schedules to accommodate our requests.
You made everything seem so easy for first time home buyer. I suggested your name to our close friends too.

As a 1st time home buyer who began the process of searching for a home online, I spent a great deal of time driving around neighborhoods and navigating real estate shorthand alone. Several frustrating months later I finally found a home I was ready to make an offer on and had the great fortune of being introduced to Ms. Karen. Saying the process of getting to the closing table was difficult, would be a gross understatement. And I can honestly say either I would have opted out or the entire deal would have fallen apart had it not been for the amazing team Ms. Karen put together and her own outstanding work ethic. I really felt this was more than just her job, it was personal to her. I am immensely grateful for such professionalism, dedication, and communication throughout the entire process. I have rarely been so pleased with a service provided by an individual. And I would not hesitate to recommend her as an agent for buying or selling purposes

Karen Trebes I found was a very honest and helpful agent. My husband and I were first time house buyers, and upon meeting her, I found that she had answers to all my questions before I even had a chance to ask them. It was then that I decided that she should be our agent, as she was the first agent I had met who had this approach, instead of standing there and not interacting with us, expecting the houses we were viewing to sell themselves. She certainly knows her stuff, and to me that is hugely important. If she is given a question she cannot answer, she will go out of her way to find the answer for you. Even though she had to go away for an emergency at one point whilst we waiting on the inspection reports for our house, she was always easy to contact and did all she could to make sure we got everything we needed. She was also very good at calming my fears and giving good suggestions that I hadn’t thought of, as well as negotiating a very good deal for us.
If you are looking for an agent who will really work hard to meet your needs, go above and beyond the call of duty and give you a fair, honest and open assessment, this is your lady. She will really ensure you find the home of your dreams and make the headaches of house buying go away.

My search for a home began in the summer of 2007, prior to relocating to New Orleans from Austin. I had communicated with Karen Trebes through her RE/MAX website about some possible rentals but a friend in New Orleans had found a place for me. In the summer of 2008 I began my search for a home purchase in New Orleans. A friend recommended a realtor, who after six months was unable to assist me, in fact I felt like I was doing all of the research myself. I remembered Karen and contacted her again through her website on RE/MAX. Karen provided a list of homes in good neighborhoods and within my price range.
Buying a house in the latter part of 2008 and early 2009 was no easy task and I had bizarre encounters with sellers and mortgage companies. I believe any other realtor would have given up on me and walked away. Karen went the extra mile with suggestions on other lending options and assisting me in finding a place to board my three dogs when I had to find temporary housing after the first closing fell through.
I closed on my home in April 2009, but Karen has continued to keep in touch from time to time. I recommend her without any reservation because I know that she truly cares for and about her clients – who are more than just a commission.

As far as I am concern, most professional people are knowledgeable in what they do, communicated effectively, and get the best results possible for the customer. HOWEVER, there are a few people who go way above the bar, Karen Trebes is one of these people. Karen loves her job, simple as that. And that translate over the moment you meet her. Her work ethics are reliably and trustworthy. Karen knows the market inside and outside, which means ALL details are covered. Karen's recommendations to me have been solid. She has gone out of her way to sell my home, and the whole process has been enjoyable.- Karen Macon Oregon- Formerly Kenner, LA

We contracted with Karen Trebes to help sell our house in Kenner, LA.. I had contacted Karen by phone from an internet listing of realtors as my partner and I are located in Colorado. Karen had immediately called me back and was able to visit the house that same day! At this time the house was not ready to be placed on the market but Karen remembered several weeks later when we called to list the house. Our experience with Karen was great! She went way above and beyond our expectations.

Karen Trebes did a tremendous job in helping me sell my father's home in New Orleans, LA after his passing. I live out of state and Karen was a tremendous help to me during a very difficult time. She was very professional, supportive, and indispensable to my efforts. She went out of her way to help me take care of everything necessary to prepare my father's home for sale. In the end my trips to New Orleans from out of town were minimized, thus saving me a lot of headaches and money. I highly recommend her services if you are looking to buy or sell a home in the greater New Orleans area.- Diego Menendez Georgia
