First Time buyersJeannette Karis is very responsive - quick to return email and phone calls and super fast at answering any questions. When my wife and I found a home that we fell in love with she was great for us and quite helpful. I liked her; she was friendly, open and honest to me. As first time buyers Highly recommend!"
Relocating seniors "From the very beginning you accomodated us, first of all by returning our call while we were still in AK. Every single time after that, you never hesitated to be available when we needed you and we are grateful. We have enjoyed our two month association and hope that we continue to have contact. We certainly consider you a friend"
Out of town senior seller "You sold my house successfully in just a few short weeks. I am 76 years old and living 360 miles from the house I vacated. After we first met, you prepared a detailed analysis for me, of the market conditions of the area and what like houses were selling for. We came up with a price that I thought would move the property quickly and give me a satisfactory value. You always answered my phone calls and e-mails promptly and gave me the direction needed to complete the transaction. I was pleased with your professionalism and if I would need to buy or sell property in the future I would be pleased to work with you again."
Relocating buyer to be closer to family"I have enjoyed living in my new house and am grateful every day for your guidance, direction and select choices for choosing a home in the Liberty Lake area. The square footage and floor plan are perfect for me... and guess what? I don't miss climbing stairs or heating empty halls and bedrooms! My children are happy that I live in a safe neighborhood and shopping is close. I look forward to Fall and Winter to see how much I will save in my Greenstone Home (Summer costs were way down)".
Out of town seller frustrated with home not selling "When you list your home with Jeannette, you not only get someone with a perky English accent, but a real professional caring lady. I had my house listed for a year, and 2 different agents. With Jeannette's help, my home sold in a few weeks. Truly a dedicated realtor!"
Spokane Valley long time owners found me on the web after deciding to move to ID "We found Jeannette to be personable, knowledgeable and professsional.Would recommend her service to others"

Spokane seller (prior FSBO) relocating out of town - "I just want to thank you for all you did which enabled us to sell our house quickly. I must admit that I've had to rethink my position on listing agents ... if we had you last year, we wouldn't have wasted so much time trying to sell our home by ourselves. Regarding your abilitites, skills, professionalism and results, I would recommend you without reservation."
Out of town buyers buying new construction in Eagle Ridge - "Jeannette Karis was amazing to work with. My husband and I are very particular and she was very detailed oriented and had great follow up. This was imperative as we were not only building but my husband was half way round the world on an overseas assignment with the US Air Force and I was on the other side of the state!. If it wasn't for her we never would have made it through all the steps of building this new home!"
Out of state sellers of bare land in West Plains - "Debbie and I feel really fortunate to have had your expertise and help to sell our property. We needed to find a buyer right away and you did just that and made it happen in a very short time. We really appreciate all that you have done for us, Jeannette Karis."
Managing broker of large WA/ID land company, buying in Liberty Lake - "After serving as a Washington State Director with Jeannette for five years I knew if I ever purchased a home in Spokane it would be with her. She didn't disappoint us. We shopped hard for several weekends and found the right house for our situation. Jeannette is very competent with her paperwork and knows the Spokane county housing market well. Jeannette remained involved in each of our processes until we closed, ahead of schedule. We have referred her to several friends and family and know they will share the experience we had. Thanks Jeannette Karis, you're the best!"
First time home buyers buying in Nine Mile Falls - "Bryan and I would again like to thank you for all that you helped us with.

Thanks again Jeannette Karis."
Retirees selling rental in Spokane to buyers who said we can just need to move in, no projects"We recently acquired the services of Jeannette Karis as our listing agent for the sale of our rental house. Jeannette was very thorough explaining all the paperwork related to such a sale. Also some small details that we could do to make our rental house more inviting to potential buyers. Our house sold within a week of being on the market. We certainly would ask again for her services as our listing agent and we will recommend Jeannette Karis to all our famiy and friends and to anybody who needs a very good and hardworking real estate agent."
Spokane seller & buyer "Jeannette Karis was recommended to us by some friends that she had worked with previously. We found her to be very knowledgeable about current level of activity and she was able to provide suggestions and recommendations for our house sale that were right on target (even if we did not like some of them). She was very patient and understanding, and responsive to our concerns and questions. Selling (and Buying) a house is very stressful and agonzing experience in the current climate, and we feel that she shared our pains along the way. That is especially true with the purchase of the bank owned house we purchased. We could not have done it without Jeannette Karis's help. Again thank you for your efforts."
Relocating from CA with large extended family"It is a little late but just wanted to say thanks for ALL your hardwork in finding a home that worked for our family. We are all up here now and starting to get settled in. I am hppy in the house and the layout is working well for us. thanks again"
MT seller"I wanted to thank you for your untiring effort in bringing about the sale of our house! There is no reason that this sale had to be such a trial and I truly believe that any other realtor with less sand than you would either have bailed on the project or just dogged us until the money ran out or we died of old age. My only regret is that we didn't use you out of the gate (didn't know of you) and wasted half a year of prime selling time before the market fell!! We are much wiser now and rest assured that we will be reccommending you to everyone we know in the area who needs a tireless, patient and overqualified/experienced realtor."
Spokane sellers leaving town"Jeannette Karis's been a knowledgeable resource for getting out home sold during a buyers market. In fact, the first day the house hit the internet, we had a buyer with an offer! She helped our house stand out among hundreds with her beautifully photographed and well written Virtual Tour.She was pleasant, relaxed and comfortable to be with, and cheerfully works around your schedule. Compared to the realtor who got us into the house we just sold ... well, lets just say he wasn't worth calling back. I'm glad we went with Jeannette instead."
Repeat clients trying to sellin Spokane Valley "Thanks again for all you have done for us, not only this home but on our prior sale and purchase. You are always recommended when I run across someone who needs a real estate professional."
Investors selling rentals "Thank you so much for representing us in the sale of our five properties. From your superb insight into curb appeal, to market pricing during a sticky market, we found your knowledge to be on the mark. As a General Contractor I was impressed by your ability to recognize repair and remodeling projects that brought these houses to a level that two houses sold almost the day they listed. One of them with three offers. Even the home inspections for buyer loans and appraisals sailed through with no problem. I was thoroughly impressed by your advice on what steps to take to prepare for this sometimes difficult process. Again, we cannot thank you enough for sharing your expertise and knowledge to make a sometimes stressful situation flow smoothly."
Relocating from Seattle area"Jeannette Karis was very patient and worked with us for over a year in finding our perfect home."
Relocating back to Spokane's South Hill from CA "You were most professional and knowledgeable in all areas, extremely efficient and friendly (which is important to me). I am having the house painted, removed about 6 trees from the property and getting the yard in order. Thanks again for your help... I love the house."
VA first time home buyer"In the summer of 2008 my wife and I started looking for our home. Being our first home buyers we had NO idea what we were in for, and as such started randomly looking at homes. Lucky for us Jeannette Karis of RE/MAX was the agent for one of the first homes we called to look at. She quickly figured out we didn't have an agent(a wonderful way for first time home buyers to start out, huh?). Jannette laid out the ground rules of her being our agent and because of her straight forward / no nonsense approach we choose her as our agent. I am afraid to think of what our buying experience would have been like without Jeannette.
As our agent she always had straight forward honest answers to our questions. She never tried to influence our decision. She always pointed out questions that not only made us more informed about something we were looking at but also made us think about things that might pop up down the road. Jeannette was always looking out for us even when we didn't know we needed looking after, never once pushing us one way or the other. We were definitely blessed to have found such an experienced agent who had the patience and understanding to put up with two first time home buyers who were full of silly ideas and unrealistic dreams.
Jeannette Karis is a true professional in every sense of the word. Her experience as an agent was INVALUABLE in our search for a home. Her knowledge with current and new laws helped us to avoid a few pitfalls in the bidding process. Her calm approach to explaining things helped keep the whole buying experience virtually stress free for us. If you are looking for an agent who can get the job done right as quickly as possible without all the hassle .... CALL Jeannette now!!!"
CA Broker selling rental"I am a Realtor in California and Jeanette represented us on the sale of our rental property in Spokane. Being in the business for 24 years, I know the difference between a mediocre agent and a good one. Jeanette falls into the GREAT category! Her professionalism, knowledge of the market and superb follow through were impressive. She's also a delight to work with. If you have a property to sell in the Spokane area, or you need to buy a home, don't hesitate to use Jeanette. She's the Best!"
Military relocation / PCS"Thank you so much for all your assistance in our relocation to Spokane. You've gone above and beyond for us. We'll be in touch when it comes time to sell."
Out of town family selling mothers property by short sale, in Spokane."Jeannette Karis of RE/MAX of Spokane is the finest Realtor a person could have! In the summer of 2001 we were looking for a realtor who could handle the sale of our mother's home in Spokane. Jeannette came highly recommended from a realtor in Walla Walla. Selling a home as a `short sale' would be difficult but Jeannette had the attitude and experience to get it done. Selling a house with an owner that was out of town required a dedicated realtor. For most realtors this sale would have been complex enough and would have limited their involvement. But Jeannette is not like most realtors. Driving all over town to pay utility bills on the sellers behalf required a realtor who was willing to go the proverbial `extra mile' to get the job done. Arranging for a contractor to perform lender required work requirements, showed a drive and dedication that goes way beyond what most realtors would exert. Performing last minute inspections, demonstrated to the buyer and seller that Jeannette was professional and dedicated. From my experience, Jeannette Karis has demonstrated integrity and honesty. So if you are in the market to purchase or sell a home, I would definitely call Jeannette first!"

She even made sure we'd gotten into our house ok."

VA buyers moving from Seattle"Your tenacity is to be commended... You persevered through broken pipes, excessive radon, a change in VA policy, a contingency that fell through, an appraisal that didn't meet our expectations, a seller with last minute surprises, a porch that needed painting, water that was turned off and last but not least a lost express package with all of our closing papers. However through it all I never once noticed a change in your level of service, professionalism or demeanor. I will recommend you to everyone I know.
