If you're looking for a partner in the journey that is purchasing a home look no further than Karen Close. Her attention to our interests was evident from outset, her insights and knowledge of the area were outstanding, her work ethic was refreshing, and her sound counsel through the process was greatly appreciated. Top marks for Karen.

I previously work with Karen when buying the property I just sold. Her professionalism, assistance throughout the proce ss, kindness, and extensive knowledge made working with her again a no-brainer. Given the experience I had selling my property, choosing Karen and her associates at Century 21 New Millenium was the best decision I could have made. Karen and her associates were excellent in every aspect. I do not believe I would have had such a positive or timely outcome with anyone else. Should I ever need a Real Estate agent in the area again, or should a friend need a recommendation, I will without a doubt go to Karen.

Cathy was amazing from start to finish: she was communicative, understanding, extremely helpful with locating properties and assessing their value, always available, kind, and professional. In the future i will recommend her services and if I have any questions, I know I can trust her advice.

Our agent, Karen Close, is outstanding. She has many years of experience in real estate in the area and knows the marke t inside and out. She was always available, patient and pleasant to work with. Overall she did a great job of negotiating the purchase of our new home and the sale of our house, and knew exactly how far to push to get what we needed. We would highly recommend Karen to others looking to buy or sell homes in the Northern Virginia area.

I've worked with Karen Close on four transactions, and she's simply the best. She's caring, smart, responsive and savvy . We had some difficult housing requirements and Karen was determined to help us achieve them without compromising. She takes the time to understand your needs, your wants, your budget, the market and how to get you to your goal. Best yet, she's fun to work with.

Justin Britt and Stacey Stump, Arlington
Karen helped us sell our house when we were transferred overseas & helped us buy a house when we we transferred back to Virginia. We are now retired in Austin, Texas. However, both our kids work and live in the DC area so we decided to buy a condo in Arlington. Since we had 2 great experiences selling & buying with Karen, we did not hesitate to call Karen again to help us with the purchase of the condo. She's very professional, knowledgeable, a good negotiator & excellent at her job. We highly recommend Karen, she's one of the best agents in the US!!!!!

Karen's ability to connect with the other broker in the transaction was critical, the most important criteria when selec ting a broker. Karen impresses with her rare combination of professionalism and personal warmth.
Review by
Steve Novelli, Arlington
Karen Close is a lovely person and makes you feel comfortable immediately upon meeting her. I met Karen nine years ago when I started my search to purchase a home. I had relocated to VA from MA and was completely overwhelmed! She knew exactly what I was looking for after only a few minutes. I bought the first place she showed me. So when it was time for me to relocate back to MA and sell the house she helped me find nine years earlier, I immediately contacted Karen. I completely trust her judgment and her knowledge of the marketplace. She did EVERYTHING to make the process of selling my home as stress free as possible for me. I wouldn't work with any other broker.

Karen Close was the listing agent for the house we are now selling. That was over 20 years ago and we were impressed wi th her at that time. Karen is an outstanding agent with an extensive knowledge of the local market and provided excellent advice when a bidding war developed on the condo we just purchased. She's always available and consistently pleasant to work with. We have complete confidence in her.

Linda and Alan Rogers Arlington & McLean, VA
Karen Close was superb! She was compassionate and understanding of reasons why I was selling and buying my home. She was my advocate throughout this whole process. I have had agents in the past (for other properties) and KAREN was above all the rest! I am so thankful that she was my agent. She truly had my best interest and honestly, there needs to be more agents like her!

Cathy is a top-notch broker. She is maintains a perfect blend of being extremely professional and warm/caring. I would H IGHLY recommend her to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home. She went above and beyond to make my experience smooth, easy and stress-free. Cathy Medders is a gem! As part of Cathy's above-and-beyond, she had a very professional video made of my town house. She added the 'gorgeous inside' sign to the yard sign. She really did a great job in getting potential buyers and finding the perfect buyer. Top-notch really says it all!

Trish F. Virginia
My husband and I were new to the market and Karen helped us to learn the market and find a home that we will love living in. We looked for close to 8 months and Karen was informative, supportive and patient throughout our process. Then, in a competitive bidding situation, Karen guided us along a path that eventually landed us the contract. We will absolutely recommend Karen to others in need of an agent, and would love to do business with her again ourselves (although we don't plan on leaving our fabulous new home any time soon!).

Courtney and Mike
I found Karen to be a unique blend of pragmatic and professional, on one hand, and warm and personable, on the other. As I mentioned earlier, she was persistently upbeat, which a seller needs--selling a house is more difficult than I had thougt. At the same time, she was frank about the market value of the house and what I needed to do to prepare it for sale. This meant that my expectations were realistic and in line with the outcome.

I don't know if it would be possible for me to put into words how much I enjoyed working with Karen. She helped find me my house and it was a no-brainer when deciding who I would use as my sellers agent. Karen's attitude, work ethic, friendship and overall personality are reasons I loved working with her and if I had been staying in the area would have worked with her again in a heartbeat. She made the process so easy and calmed my always present nerves. She is the gold standard and sets the bar for what anyone would want in an agent. There is no one else I would have wanted in my negotiating court other than Karen. She fought for me and I am more than confident got me a great deal. She also went above and beyond in dealing with my house fixes and closing since I had moved out of state and was unable to travel back. She is a godsend and I wish she would move to Texas so she could find me my new home and the sell it when needed. Karen was amazing to me as I dealt with the process from afar. I was no longer in state but she listened to me every time I would call and explained everything to me clearly and in detail. I always felt welcomed by her and that she genuinely loved what she was doing. I know she does and it shows in every aspect of her job. We should clone her.
