Having already purchased a home with Karolyn, we knew we wanted her to represent us in our first home sale. Much like our initial experience, she went above and beyond in ways that we couldn't have expected. We sold our home from afar, and Karolyn made it possible by doing everything from communicating with our tenant to coordinating handymen. Few people have the ability to make such an incredibly complicated process so easy, and her upbeat personality made even the most challenging parts of selling a home enjoyable. We are forever indebted to her and could not recommend her more wholeheartedly. Karolyn is amazing!
We recently sold our Boulder house with Karolyn as our selling agent. We found her through an online search for realtor. Karolyn had impressive reviews so we decided to interview her. That turned out to be an excellent decision.
Karolyn is a superb agent. She has a great team: a professional stager to help us re-arranging furnitures and a first-class photographer who took picture-perfect photos of our house. Karolyn works effectively, planning all the necessary processes within just a few days after signing contract with us. She is also very responsive, always answering our email and text messages right away. We are very grateful for her help in selling our house quickly.
Over the years we had moved many times and had to deal with many realtors. We always thought that the 6% broker fee was too high. But for the very first time—-after working with Karolyn—-we were very happy to pay that commission fee. This time we think it is all very worthy!
Karolyn was very responsive and made herself available at anytime including weekends and late in the evening. She was understanding and worked with our schedule (we have twin 2 year olds) for showings and all of the various discussions regarding properties and home buying process. Karolyn was respectful of our wants and decisions and showed great patience when we had moments of indecision. Karolyn gave her honest opinions but gave us space to draw our own conclusions. Karolyn has a terrific knowledge of the area and is a great communicator and negotiator.
After working with Karolyn in 2015, there was no doubt who to call when we decided to move to the mountains. With many moving parts of selling and buying at the same time, we could not have been happier with the entire process. Karolyn is brilliant at what she does and a great listener. She was very attentive to what our needs were and found the perfect home for us. Selling and buying at the same time could have been very stressful, but with Karolyn's expertise both transactions went better than we could have ever imagined. I highly recommend working with her!
Karolyn Merrill is a true professional. She is personable, listens to your wants and needs, and finds appropriate properties. It didn't take a long time for her to find us a great house in Superior and worked hard with the sellers to get the best price possible. Thank you Karolyn. Brian
Our family moved to the Boulder area from out of State last Summer and we were on a very tight timeline to find a home in time for our daughter to start school in the Fall. Karolyn was amazing to work with. She took quite a bit of time up front to really understand what we were looking for, give us a tour of the area, and help us understand our options, which really helped the process go smoothly for us. Her knowledge of the area and of the local real estate market is excellent and she was able to guide us to the right neighborhood and the right home to meet our wants and needs - and our budget! Karolyn is professional, sharp, and a pleasure to work with. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Boulder, CO and surrounding area!
I very recently needed a crack team of real estate professionals who could work with me as an out-of-state POA, caring for an elderly aunt and uncle with no local family nearby. Their move to a senior assisted living facility gave rise to an immediate need to sell their home of over 50 years and a significant, complicating factor...they had accumulated years of "stuff" of unknown value that needed to be cleared from the house.
Enter Karolyn Merrill and team (Cynthia Hogart and Darcy Barnhill). They introduced me to the concept of senior move management, which helped us understand how the cleanup could be addressed and integrated with the real estate selling process.
The result.......after five weeks of Karolyn and team clearing and cleaning, followed by planning, strategy development and pricing analysis, the property had multiple offers and was under contract within 24 hours of listing.
I attribute this quick success to the professionalism, cooperative teamwork, market and geographic knowledge and communication of Karolyn and team. We could not have accomplished the success that we did without the leadership and local market knowledge provided by Karolyn and Cynthia and the cleanup and move management provided by Darcy and her team.
Karolyn was instrumental in simplifying a potentially complex real estate sale that crossed state lines. As the seller stand-in for my aunt and uncle, I always felt engaged in the sales process thanks to Karolyn's style for open communication.
I would give Karolyn and her team the highest marks as engaged and knowledgeable real estate sales professionals. I highly recommend Karolyn to other prospective real estate buyers and sellers.
I highly recommend Karolyn! She has gone above and beyond for me. She's very professional, kind, wise, fun, intelligent, knowledgable, understanding, and quickly figures out your needs.
Karolyn did a great job in finding and helping us buy our first house in Boulder. We worked with Karolyn based upon the strong recommendation of our pediatrician and are very glad we worked with her. We were unfamiliar with Boulder and the area when we started, and she helped us to get a better sense of the neighborhoods and homes in Boulder and the surrounding towns. Karolyn came to see almost all of the houses (and there were a lot) and gave her helpful advice. She understood what we were looking for, and we always felt that she was looking out for our interests. We ended up making two offers, and she did a great job in coaching us to put together a strong offer that was in our comfort zone. Considering we only made 2 offers, Karolyn was really successful. The first offer was chosen as the back-up offer, and our 2nd offer was accepted, even though a higher priced offer had been made. She is extremely responsive, and took the time to ensure we understood the contract and the closing process. We highly recommend Karolyn.
Karolyn Merrill is a realtor bar none. She is attentive, kind, and works on the behalf of her client. She truly cares about helping and making a typically stressful experience into something pleasant and easy-going. I looked forward to my interactions with her because I was always met with professionalism and sincerity. Clients would be lucky and fortunate to work with her and I know you will love her.
