Military PCSing from UK Honestly i can't say enough good things about Jeannette Karis. She is unmatched in how she explains the home buying process and spares no detail! Jeannette helped me buy a beautiful home for my large family of 6 even with thousands of miles between us. Chose her and you will NOT be sorry!
Relocating from CA I can without reservation recommend Jeanette. She was very patient with us during our interstate move. She actually did several video tours of homes for us as flying in for each house that came on the market was not possible. She was a great pleasure to work with.
Seniors relocating from CA to join family who relocated earlier this year"Jeannette is great. She is very knowledgeable, professional and works hard to keep you up to date on the latest listings. As such, we were able to purchase a home in a few short weeks. Thank you Jeannette!"
1st Time Buyers out of country for closing "Jeanette was our realtor when my wife and I bought our first home, and we were very pleased with her services! She was exceptionally professional and brought a wealth of knowledge of Spokane’s neighborhoods, history, and current markets. Jeanette was also very responsive to our questions and requests, and was very patient with us as we got to know the home-buying process. I would definitely recommend her! "
Seniors relocating from CA to be closer to family"We had a wonderful experience with Jeanette, she was so professional and very informed on every question we had. Jeannette made a difficult process of buying a home out of state and in an area we knew very little about. She sent very good selections for us to view and when we came to Spokane to look at some of the homes she was excellent at not only showing us the homes, we got to know the area so much better. We look at several homes together and when we found our home to purchase she was very helpful in the long distance offer process. Thanks to Jeannette we have truly found our forever home. Thank you "
Local Sellers on acreage, selling and moving into Spokane"We had a wonderful experience with Jeannette, both in selling our house and in buying our new house. She was knowledgable, responsive, and completely professional. Hiring her as our real estate agent was definitely money well spent -- she made the process as painless as possible and we felt very supported and like all of the details were taken care of. We would work with her again in a second (hopefully we won't need to for a little while, though :)."
VA buyer relocating from AZ"Jeannette was an amazing help to us as we searched for our perfect home. She has her finger on the pulse of the market in Spokane as well as in depth knowledge of specific geographical areas. Jeannette was very responsive to all our questions and quick to offer advice to keep us out of trouble. As a family who was trying to house hunt from another state, I can’t think of another real estate agent I would trust. We plan on having my parents utilize Jeannette next year when they relocate! Thank You Jeannette for a warm welcome to Spokane! "
Military 1st time buyer PCSing from UK "Jeannette is an excellent realtor. She is very knowledgeable about the Spokane market, and she does a good job explaining everything. Her knowledge and advice was incredibly helpful because my husband and I were first time homebuyers and moved here from overseas. We didn’t know anything about buying a house. Jeannette helped us start the process while we were still living abroad, and she went above and beyond by FaceTiming us while walking through the house we loved. After getting to Spokane, we talked to several people about buying a house. Many of the people we talked to said they’ve tried to buy, but their offers were always rejected. They ended up renting instead. Because of Jeannette, we got the house we really wanted on the first offer. Can’t recommend her enough!"
Repeat military client, out of state seller "Jeannette Karis's professionalism, dependability, trustworthiness and many years of “Real Estate” experience was one of the major deciding factors for me as a first-time homebuyer and seller to acquire her “Expert” real estate services. Other factors were Jeannette’s open and friendly personality. Jeannette took all the stress that is normally associated with buying or selling a home out of the equation by simply listening to my real estate needs, keeping me well informed throughout the process, and taking the time to ensure I was fully familiar with all the terminology that comes along with selling or buying a home. I would not hesitate to recommend Jeannette Karis services to my family , friends, or co-workers, she is an expert in her field of work."
First time buyers with VA loan " Jeannette helped us greatly with purchasing our first home! We were inexperienced, first-time, VA buyers, and Jeannette guided us carefully through each step while demonstrating detailed knowledge of the home buying process (especially the VA loan process). She was extremely quick to respond to any questions or concerns which made it easier to navigate the process! We never waited more than a few minutes for a response and she always provided ample detail and demonstrate great knowledge and experience."
Repeat clients, USAF PCSing to UK"We worked with Jeannette in both buying and selling a home. We were very pleased with her experience, market knowledge and responsiveness. We always felt like a priority. Most importantly, she was just a joy to work with. We would absolutely use her gain"
Relocating to Spokane "Jeanette helped us with our home purchase this year. We met her during one of the open houses at the Joel apartment and decided that she is the right realtor for us because she was very knowledgeable, patient, diligent and consentious. Because we live out of town we often needed to look at properties within a narrow time frame and Jeanette would always make time for us despite how little notice she gets. Throughout the entire process we never felt rushed and she was very helpful in providing advice in helping us choose our current home and also proactive in obtaining more information related to the properties we visited. We recommend her highly to anyone looking for a home in Spokane."
Selling and Buying in Spokane "Jeanette helped us purchase a new home while selling our current home. She was easy to keep in touch with, didn’t hound us like some realtors when we first expressed interest in buying, and was very transparent in her role. I liked that she supports a charity with her sales, too. Most of our paperwork was completed online, which made the process very smooth. She showed great care in finding us a home within our means, needs, and style."
Repeat USAF Sellers PCSing to OK"We worked with Jeannette in both buying and selling a home. We were very pleased with her experience, market knowledge and responsiveness. We always felt like a priority. Most importantly, she was just a joy to work with. We would absolutely use her again."
Repeat clients returning to Spokane "My husband and I cannot say enough about the experiences we have had dealing with Jeannette. Her knowledge of the real estate market is unmatched. She not only helped us sell our home at a great price in a buyer's market, but helped us purchase a home for a great price in a seller's market. The thing I love the most about Jeannette is how closely she listens to her clients. She looks at your needs and affordability and will not waste your time showing you unsuitable homes. (However, she has a great knack of sparking interest you may not have known you had!) We are unbelievably happy with the purchase of our new home and we owe it all to Jeannette!!! "
Local Buyer "In every respect Jeannette outperformed my expectations. She made things happen quickly, properly and pleasantly."
Out of town, estate sale seller "Jeannette did A great job ! sold our house in just a few days . The pictures and videos she took were fantastic . I highly recommend Jeanette !"
Repeat client "Jeanette is awesome, she has helped me buy two homes now. I would not use any other realtor, she is nice, professional, and super knowledgeable. You are in good hands with her!"
Out of state investor using 1031 exchange to purchase "My son was so impressed with Jeanette's service when he did a 1031 rollover that he recommended her to me. A son doesn't put his father in the hands of another lightly and my son rarely recommends anyone for fear it will reflect poorly on him! Adding to this, I was a realtor over 35 years and know the business. Like Doctors make the worst patients. Old realtors make the worst clients! But, Jeanette knows real estate and she knows her market very well. She helped me with an out-of-state 1031 rollover to an in-state-purchase. Her professionalism, knowledge and grace allowed her to work seamlessly with an old retired realtor, my selling agent, my 1031 company and my attorney in fact. She had no trouble integrating all that with a sales team that she built and she was able to smooth out all the bumps and fill all the pot holes to make this transition into a smooth and easy purchase."
Home seller in Spokane selling & buying investment property "I can go on and on about how great Jeanette's service was, but the best thing I can say in short is… After working with Jeanette, I knew her capabilities and trusted her so completely that I referred both my Father and Fiancée to Jeanette. - Jeanette gave OUTSTANDING service in all areas except one, and there she went above and beyond!!! - I was looking to make a more complicated sale and purchases than the run of the mill. I was selling a long time rental, to purchase and newer house as a rental. Jeanette knew some of the ins and outs of a 1031 rollover, but where her expertise ended, she brought in a team of people to help complete the task. Ultimately, her team saved me several thousands of dollars as fees constant with this endeavor are normally much higher. Her knowledge and network made this transition painless and cost effective."
Buyer helped with refi "We utilized Jeanette two years ago to buy our house. She was so helpful and walked us through every step of the process. Recently we decided to refinance and when we had been challenged with a low appraisal she stepped up to look up additional comparable sales which led to the appraisal company re-evaluating our home and giving us what we were hoping for. She did this with one phone call and on her own time. Words can't say enough how we appreciated her effort!"
East Coast Seller "Jeannette Karis represented us in the sale of our home. We were doing it long distance and she made it seamless. She had a buyer before it even went on the market. Thank you so much"
Selling in Spokane & Buying in Cheney "Jeannette is always very responsive and gave good recommendations for our strategy of negotiations. She may not agree with an idea and will provide alternative suggestions, however if asked to go in a certain direction she is willing to support your decision as the buyer/seller. She always does her best to be available in the time frames provided and provides updates so you don't feel like you are swaying in the wind waiting for action. My fiance and I used her for four transactions (1 sale and 3 purchases) and will continue to use her in the future should the need arise. Plus her English accent is lovely to listen to. :)"
1st Time Buyer "Jeannette is amazing. I was nervous as a first time home buyer but she put me right at ease. She had great recommendations every step of the way. She showed patience and kindness throughout the process. I now can say that I am a homeowner! Thank you Jeannette!"
Relocating Buyers from MD "Jeannette was a delight to work with. Moving all the way from Maryland, we had plenty of questions about the area regarding everything from local activities and stores to geography and schools. Jeannette was able to answer all our questions or tell us precisely where to find the answers we sought. During the offer and closing process she was helpful, proactive, and highly responsive. She made us aware of everything we needed to know before we needed to know it, and provided or directed us to all the records and documents we needed. And even after closing she lent a supportive hand as we orchestrated and conducted our cross-country move. We highly recommend Jeannette!"
Selling & Buying "My husband and I were hesitant to work with a Real Estate agent at first, for no other reason but the expense. With this being our first time selling and buying a home in the same transaction, we were thinking about selling ourselves to make a little extra money at the end. Let me tell you, I'm so glad we decided to work with Jeannette Karis! I first spoke with her on a property that we were interested in, and she called to give me some details. From our first conversation I could tell she was very knowledgeable and also a straight shooter. She told me all the pros and cons of selling a house by owner, and gave us a few example scenarios of things that could happen which we may not be prepared for. After our first conversation it took my Husband and I less than an hour to decide that working with Jeannette was a smart choice. And boy were we right!! We put our home on the market and had multiple offers within the first 12 hours. Jeanette was very organized about getting us the information, and also explaining timeframes in which we needed to respond. She created comprehensive spreadsheets with all the offers and their details so it was easy to read. We accepted an offer, and about 2 weeks later our biggest nightmare came to life! The family purchasing our home no longer had the funds, and had to back out of the deal. We were so disappointed by this news, and also nervous that our home which we were purchasing would fall through since it was a contingent sale. Jeannette handled the situation unbelievably well. She put our home back on the market the next day, and was able to get another deal very quickly. She made a lot of phone calls, and put in the work to let her colleagues know that our home was back on the market, and why. She dealt with all parties involved to ensure the proper paperwork and communication was there so we were all on the same page. After that stressful incident occurred we were 1000% sure we made the right choice in working with Jeannette. She was available for us all hours of the night, and it felt like she was consistently working on our sale/purchase. I even joked to my husband a few times that I didn't think she ever went to sleep. I would get emails pretty late, and phone calls first thing in the morning. If you are on the fence about using a real estate agent, or are just looking for someone reliable and hard-working, Jeannette Karis is definitely the Agent for you! We love our new home so much :)"
Senior downsizing, repeat client "I 1st used Jeanette when I bought my home in Spokane. She did an excellent job and I purchased a wonderful home with her help. When I needed to sell my home I called on her. With her help, I was able to sell my home in a very short time. I would very highly recommend Jeannette to anyone looking to either purchase or sell a home."
Out of State Land Owner "I found Jeannette to be a sincere, honest, and responsible agent. She got the job done, avoiding any stress on our end; so appreciated. She was the 3rd agent we used and was able to complete the task. Thank you, Jeannette !!!"
Out of town condo sellers "We were out of town sellers and Jeannette came highly recommended by a friend in Real Estate in Kennewick. She was immediately friendly, available and had excellent suggestions. Her knowledge of the real estate marked in Spokane was excellent. Her suggestions were polite, informed and always with our best interests in mind.She has a computer program that made signing of documents very easy on line. She frequently emailed us to keep up to date on viewing activities. In summary, she is pleasant, polite, informed, keeps us informed and makes it easy on us. Overall, this was by far, the nicest real estate transaction I have ever been through--thanks to Jeannette. Both my wife, Lesley, very highly recommend her. She is great! Jim & Lesley/Cove, OR."
Acreage Seller,repeat client "I hired Jeannette Karis to buy a house on acreage in 2000, so when it was time to sell in 2016, I hired her again without even considering anyone else. The fact that she had so many years of experience, including the financial collapse of 2008, told me she knew some things most agents would not know. I was more than a little lost and overwhelmed during the process as my wife had passed away in 2008. I did not know what updates and repairs were needed or advantageous. Jeannette did, met with me for a walk through promptly, and gave practical, workable advice tailored to the market segment. When the contractor I wanted to hire proved unworkable, she provided a reference for better contractor. Moreover, as a realtor, she has superior bargaining power because she can provide a contractor with repeat business. She also knew and recommended a contractor for specialty work that was required resulting from the home inspection. She found a buyer who loved the property the way my wife and I had years earlier. Her wisdom during negotiations and closing was indispensable. While I was traveling as the house was closing, and the specialty contractor ran into weather related delays, she made arrangements to ensure all steps were completed correctly so escrow closed on the scheduled date. Thank you, Jeannette. I would not hesitate to hire you again."
Buyer from HI buying a 2nd home "With the help of Jeannette Karis, I am now a proud owner of a home in the Spokane Washington. I have been watching the real estate market in the Spokane since my daughter moves there two years ago. When I finally decided to shop for a home in Spokane, I realize that I need a realtor with extensive experience dealing with the buyers similar to my situation. After reviewing several options, my wife and I appointed Jeannette Karis to be our realtor. Jeannette had guided us through the entire process professionally and diligently. In addition, she always accommodated my schedule and made herself available when I was in town to check out the homes in the Spokane. In each home visit, she offered her observations of the house objectively. I appreciated her comments and found that the information was extremely helpful and constructive in my decision making process."
Out of state investor "You were fabulous at getting our rental sold especially since we were out of state. You helped us handle the inspection and fixes needed. You were specific about the document signing which made it easier since we were out of state. You were a pleasure to work with!! Thankyou!"
Relocating to be closer to family "Jeannette was a pleasure to work with. She was extremely responsive and quick to reply to our questions. She also went above and beyond to make herself a vailable for showings in a manner that best fit our schedule. She is extremely knowledgeable about the entire Spokane area. If you're planning to relocate to Spokane, Jeannette would be an excellent choice for your realtor."
Active Duty Military PCS "Overall a great home buying experience! Jeannette was outstanding and did a phenomenal job keeping us up to date with every aspect of the purchase. Very knowledgeable of the area and took the time to answer any questions. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking into the Spokane area!"
Relocating from OH "Working with Jeannette Karris regarding finding the perfect ranch home in the perfect locality was a very professional experience. She is very knowledgeable about real estate and is empathetic towards the consumer. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her honesty, concerns, and problem solving skills. I highly recommend any home buyer or seller to contact Jeannette to work with you."
Seniors downsizing "Your services where very professional and knowledgeable, this was the second property you sold for us and if I need the service of real estate agent in the future I will give you a call. Thank you. Roland Poulin"
Senior Sellers relocating out of state "One of the challenges of selling a home is to find a competent Real Estate Professional that (a) knows the region and (b) listens to the client. In finally choosing Ms. Karis, it was clear she was both and performed her tasks excellently on all points. It was helpful that she was able to recommend helpful suggestions to assist in marketing the property that were not cost excessive but added "value" to the prospective buyer (s). The home sold quickly and Jeanette handled all the details of the process with the kind of expertise one would expect and made our tasks a lot easier. WE would recommend Jeanette to any "Spokane area" prospective seller as she is clearly one that knows the market, knows the client and knows the process and system to work within. Thanks to Jeanette for all her hard effort in helping us at a very busy time."
New Investors "Jeannette was a pleasure to have as our realtor. She led us through the process of buying two rental properties within a short time period and when houses were selling in a matter of hours. She was patient and always willing to take us to see a house on a minute's notice. She is professional and has a strong working knowledge of all the processes. We highly recommend her!"
Active Duty Military PCSing to FAFB"Jeannette was very helpful through our first home buying experience. She explained the process in detail and was very quick to respond when we had questions. I highly recommend her if you're moving to the Spokane area!"
1st time buyer/investor "She was very friendly, had great advice for first time home buyers, and was willing to go above and beyond without being asked! We couldn't have asked for a better realtor to work with. We went in a little intimidated by the whole process, but thanks to Jeanette we are confident we got the best deal on the best house for us!"
Retired Attorney representing client "I chose Jeannette Karis as the real estate broker to sell my client's property for three reasons: (1) she came highly recommended; (2) she was familiar with both my client and the subject property; and (3) her resume' was outstanding. Readers should know that I am not new to real estate transactions. I have been an Idaho attorney for almost 45 years, although I am inactive now. As a general practitioner, a good portion of my income came from real estate buyers and sellers. I also represented real estate brokerages and closed more real estate deals than I care to recall. Moreover, I was a two-term elected prosecuting attorney and a magistrate judge for 10 years. A few months before I met Jeannette, I handled an Idaho transaction as power of attorney for my client after selecting a broker in Moscow, ID. This broker was very good, and I didn't have great expectations that I would have two pleasant and successful transactions in a row. As it turned out, I was very wrong. Jeannette outdid herself. She displayed a combination of pleasantness, knowledge and professionalism that I have rarely seen in any real estate broker. She was tireless in her efforts, even emailing me and calling me during the evening hours and on weekends. Within a month, she provided my client with a fair offer, and the deal closed sooner than we could have ever hoped. As a favor to me, since at my age I didn't particularly want to drive and park in downtown Spokane, WA, Jeanette personally drove me to the closing attorney's office and to the title company to record my power of attorney. She also waited while I finished removing my client's belongings from the property on a day which reached a record breaking high temperature. God bless her for her efforts and, most of all, her patience with my temperament, as I am well-known to be a stickler for order and detail and am generally known for my lack of patience (byproducts of my years on the judicial bench). All in all, my client and I were extremely pleased. I would rate Jeanette 5 stars for her handling of my real estate transaction".
Out of state seller "Jeannette went above and beyond as our realtor! I couldn't be more satisfied with how much help she was to selling our home. We live across the country and were selling this house from afar and she went out of her way constantly to be my eyes, ears and suppport in all we needed to do to get our house ready to sell. I would recommend her to any of my closest friends or family!"
Relocating Buyers re-entering the market & moving closer to family "I wanted to take a second and thank you for both your hard work in negotiating and closing this home as well as making this the easiest transaction for a home we've ever had. The entire process was so simple and straightforward, compared to years ago when we last purchased. We're homeowners again, thanks to you!"
Renters buying in South Hill "I was not excited about getting a realtor but my spouse insisted. It is the best decision we've made. Jeanette was very knowledgeable and provided excellent customer service. She worked for us and treated us as if we were her only clients. She responded immediately to our requests for information from the time we started looking at houses all the way through close. I recommend Jeannette to anyone who is serious about finding the right house and then having great support and knowledgeable assistance with the negotiations and financing process."
Relocating from CA"Jeanette Karis is one of the nicest realtors I had the pleasure to work with! I would recommend her to all my friends and family! Thanks You for your time and remember that name ( Jeanette Karis) I know I will!!!!"
VA buyers " I really liked working with Jeanette. She was very knowledgeable and always got right back to me when I had questions. She really made me feel comfortable with the whole home buying process."
Seniors relocating from outside the county "So glad we went with Jeannette when we were looking for a home to buy. Made our experience so much easier as she was always there to answer questions and help us. Loved her sense of humor also. You won't be sorry if you pick her to be your realtor."
1st time VA Buyers "This was my first home buying experience and Jeanette made it a very positive one. She always got back to me right away when I had questions and was very knowledgeable about the whole process. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home."
1st time Buyers "Jeannette is patient, informed, and pleasant and has a great team of people she works with. We first worked with Jeannette for a couple of months in 2012, but were unexpectedly forced to sign a new lease. We put off our house hunt a couple more years. I contacted her again in 2014, and we spent about 6 months looking for a house, before we made an offer that worked out for us. This was not an easy feat, because my husband and I had very specific criteria for a house that really narrowed down the possibilities.As first time home-buyers, Jeannette was great to work with, because she explained the process and what our options were every step of the way. She pointed out details we should be aware of in the houses she showed us. She also had judicious answers for our numerous questions. She was thorough and conscientious throughout the home-buying process. Jeannette had great availability, especially when it counted. When we finally saw the house that we would buy, she acted quickly to show us the house an hour later. It had been listed that day in a lovely neighborhood, and there was another realtor leaving the house as my husband and I arrived. The realtor was looking at the house for her clients who would’ve likely seen it the next day. We called Jeannette to see if she could show it right away and she rushed over. We made an offer after seeing it, and the offer was accepted the next day. I appreciated her suggestions of people to work with, from the home inspector to the closing attorney and others. We are not from Spokane, so her connections have been VERY helpful. They’ve also all been professional and experts in their fields just like Jeannette. I absolutely love my house and neighborhood, and couldn’t be happier with our purchase or our choice of realtor."
"Our one year anniversary in our beautiful home. We are still thrilled with our house, the surrounding area and the view of the lake. You did a great job listening to us and finding what we really wanted in a home. No one does it as accurately as you. Many thanks again!"
Out of state buyers"Jeannette was super helpful throughout the process. I bought a house from another state. She showed us around during our visits. I highly recommend Jeannette!"
Out of town seller"Jeannette helped my wife and I sell our Liberty Lake home. Our transaction went smoothly and closed in a timely manner. We would recommend anyone looking for a professional, knowledgeable, polite agent in the Spokane region to consider Jeannette! We have referred Jeannette to several family and friends in the past few years which ended with happy outcomes."
VA buyer buying first home in US "My wife and I were turned on to Jeannette by a close friend of my wife and from the moment we met Jeannette we knew we were going to be taken care of. She was so honest, knowledgeable and friendly that I knew we would find the right home having Jeannette in our corner. She was always in contact with us and kept us up to date with all the things going on with the house were we purchasing. She is a great credit to realtors and I truly believe all realtors should follow her code of conduct and her ethics. We will miss not seeing her but I am sure we will stay in touch. I highly recommend Jeannette for your next broker!! Thank you Jeannette for everything."
Retirees relocating back to Spokane "It has been nearly 30 years since we last purchased a home, and things have changed to much. Jeanette was very kind and helped us through the process. She provided us a list of what we could expect from her, as well as a list of what to expect for the negotiation and closing process. She was very patient and was always available to answer our questions. I would highly recommend Jeannette for your next broker!"
Military PCSing "Jeannette was absolutely wonderful to work with! We are a military family and we had never been to Spokane before moving here. We knew nothing about the area and being first time home buyers-we didn't know much about what we wanted either. Jeannette was constantly working around our crazy schedule since we only had a few weeks in Spokane before heading to a different city for training. She showed us all the houses we wanted to see and helped get all of the paperwork in order with a great mortgage specialist that she recommended. As first time home buyers we had a lot of questions and she was very patient with us. She was also very direct and up-front. Jeannette works great with military people that are new to the area since she is familiar with the PCS process and she knows a ton of great people to work with along the way. She knows the Spokane area very well, and is always working for your best interest."
First time home buyer"Jeannette's expertise and guidance were invaluable. I had been looking for a realtor for weeks and had been very disappointed by the lack of motivation, poor response, and questionable honesty of the individuals I came across. Jeannette responded to my request within that day, provided me with valuable information during the first phone call, and set up several showings for me to see that weekend. When I was disappointed by the lack of quality I was seeing in my chosen price range, Jeannette suggested I go up another $5000 and the next day I found a house I wanted to put an offer in on. The buying process was unnerving at times but Jeannette did a wonderful job of calming my fears and responding promptly to my questions. I am pleased to recommend Jeannette to anyone looking for a new home, but especially first time buyers."
Seniors relocating back to Spokane"Jeannette Karis was very helpful to us in locating a home. She understood our needs regarding a minimum/no stairs. When asked to view a home, she was readily available. She was able to answer any questions we had, and we would recommend her for your real estate needs."
Out of town Short Sale Seller took 6 months to close "Jeannette is very personable and easy to work with. Highly recommend her as a partner."
First Time Buyers"Jeannette was an absolute pleasure to work with, and is incredibly knowledgable. My fiancé and I are in our early 20's and looking for our first home, and she outlined the process in a very clear and informative manner. Her use of technology was excellent, and her programs enabled us to sign documents without having to run all over town. She's a competent professional, who is also cool."
Relocating Buyer with limited availability "As newcomers to the Spokane area, my husband and I feel lucky to have had Jeannette Karis as our guide and director in purchasing our home. Jeannette is patient and worked with us, building a profile of what we really wanted in a home. When the ones we looked at didn't click she was diligent and open minded to keep hunting with us for the perfect place. After touring many houses we narrowed it down to several likely candidates. Then we walked through the door of the right place and I said, "This is it!" Mrs Karis stepped back and let it glow. She stayed on top of the extra work needed to get the house closed for us, explaining the processes as we went along. We always felt that she was working for our benefit to help get the best price possible. The reputable lenders, inspectors and contractors she referred us to were great. When we could not be there in person to sign papers, she used her technological savvy to keep the ball rolling. She knows her stuff and used her professional expertise to make buying this home a wonderful, successful experience. We highly recommend Jeannette Karis for Spokane area home buyers! Thank you for a job well done, Jeannette!"
First Time Buyer "As a first time home buyer I was unfamiliar with the whole process and steps that I needed to take. Jeannette was very helpful from the beginning to explain what I should be doing to be prepared to look for the home I wanted. If it hadn't been for her helpful advice I may have been set back months to buying a home. Once the ball was rolling she was readily available and knowledgeble throughout the process, finding a home, securing an offer, and closing the sale. I could not be happier with her service."
Relocating Retirees from Puerto Rico "Jeannette Karis was an excellent guide for my husband and I in buying a home in the Spokane area. She has extensive knowledge of Spokane and provided invaluable orientation. She was quick to respond to questions we had, patient in showing us homes, friendly in a professional way. We also appreciated her expertise in the entire buying process and her detailed explanation of the contract itself. I would highly recommend her to anyone buying a home in the Spokane area".
Military family PCSing from UK "We are so thankful to Jeanette! Not only was she amazing in helping us find and buy our home, she was also so personal and involved with our family. Thank you so much Jeanette!!"
Active Duty Military"My wife and I were from Missouri, are both military, and were allotted ten days for house hunting this past June. Jeannette made both of us feel as if we were her top priority over those ten days as we visited literally dozens of homes. We purchased our new home in mid-July and we feel that Jeannette's knowledge of the Spokane area and exceptional attentiveness allowed us to make an excellent home purchase that we are both extremely happy with. Even after our home purchasing was complete, Jeannette has assisted us with questions regarding our new home and has been more than happy to do so returning calls immediately. My wife and I would definitely recommend Jeannette as a real estate agent to anyone purchasing a home in the Spokane, WA area and I honestly cannot say enough good things about Jeannette and our home buying experience with her."
VA buyer "Jeannette is a great real estate agent. She arranged to show me all the houses available to meet my criteria. Stayed with me to the end, assisting me every way she could. Great person. Very professional."
VA Buyer with credit challenges "Jeannette Karis did what no one else could have done in our opinion. She should be given the "SilverStar" for her gallantry in action against the impossible and the IRS. With one attempt falling apart at the 11th hour she moved on, overcoming many obstacles that were not hers to deal with and perservered to endeavout to make two people very happy with their new home purchase. Great job Jeannette! We would highly reccommend you to anyone. Thanks again."
First Time Buyers with 1 buyer out of state "I knew it was a perfect fit from the beginning! Jeannette was not only honest and upfront but made sure everything was 100% clear to us as first time homebuyers. She worked odd and long hours to make sure our schedules matched. She was very timely, professional and knowledgeable. I not only hope to continue our professional relationship with her but also a friendship. If she didn't know the answer to something she knew where to find it! I would highly recommend Jeannette Karis as your professional to handle your real estate needs. She was absolutely fantastic."
Relocating in to Spokane from HI "Thank you Jeannette for your great service from beginning to end. And for setting us up with a great team, from lenders to closing. Everybody we worked with that you set us up with including yourself, went the extra mile for us and were quite fun too work with. Over all a GREAT experience!!!!."

First Time buyers "Jeannette 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!"

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.
