“I highly recommend Karen and David Stevenson for anyone in the market to buy a new home. My boyfriend and I recently purchased our first home and Karen and David did an amazing job guiding us through the process. They didn’t make us feel like we were “just another customer” and Karen seemed to really care about what our wants and needs were. Thanks again Karen and David! We cant wait to move into our new place!” August 21, 2018
Amanda and Mike A.
“Karen’s energetic planning helped to sell our house in a timely manner. Her suggestions and expertise of marketing, staging and providing open houses kept our house in the eyes of many buyers. Karen and David are an amazing team providing feedback and direction to keep the selling process moving. We are thankful to have had the pleasure of working with Karen and her team to sell two of our homes over the past five years!” August 21,2018

“Karen demonstrated excellent marketing and sales skills in selling our home. She was very responsive to our needs and concerns in selling our home that we had built 28 years ago. She had the patience in working with us to make the sales process as effective in negotiating the final sales price. We would recommend Karen to anyone considering selling their home.” August 16, 2018
Kerry and Andrew
“Karen is amazing! She was very knowledgeable and responsive during the whole process! She helped everything run so smoothly and made the process such a rewarding one! Thanks to her we are now on our dream home!” July 16, 2018
“Karen hands down is the best realtor in the state of Maryland ! She help me look for the right home and also helped me with the paperwork. David also help me out when it came down to the home inspection, answer any questions I had about the house or process.” July 20, 2018
“Karen and her team recently acted as brokers in my purchase of a new home. I can’t recommend Karen and her team enough. Karen was truly an advocate for us as clients, from helping us consider what would fit us, then working to find that home, and then getting us to closing on time while impeccably handling all the obstacles we faced along the way. We had very specific ideas of what we wanted in a very seller-friendly area, and Karen diligently accompanied us to many showings until we found our match, and never pressured a sale or gave us any advice that was not in our best interest. During closing, we ran into a few issues, but they were handled perfectly, done with excellent negotiating skills, and because of that we were able to close as scheduled. Karen and her team treated us like family, and their recognition and feedback is a reflection of the fact that this is how they treat all clients. I can’t recommend them highly enough, and I’ve already started doing so to friends and family in the market, and we plan on using their services again to sell our first home. If you’re looking in the Baltimore area or beyond, I couldn’t imagine getting better service from another broker.” June 18, 2018
“Karen is a fabulous and always responsive agent. She will find you the right home for the right price – and fight for what’s right! I highly recommend her and feel as if I could not have been as successful in my search without her help and guidance. She is a tough negotiator and will always do what’s fair and what fits you and your familys needs. She knows a great deal about the area and has many good resources and information to help you along your way. We made the greatest decision by going with Karen and couldn’t be happier with our new home.” June 17, 2018
“I was referred to Karen by a family friend and I am glad to say she did an excellent job. I was moving to Baltimore from Pittsburgh so I needed a realtor whose local knowledge was superb. Karen and David were able to come up with a list of properties for us to view that fit my criteria, budget, and provided an easy commute to work. This was really helpful for me because I did not have many days to come in town to view properties. Once we found the property of my choice, Karen was able to suggest an offer that put us under contract. She had amazing negotiating skills with the sellers agent which got us ALL the repairs we wanted.
Karen and David are a great team and I highly recommend them for anyone looking to buy a home in the Baltimore area and wanting to work with realtors that can get you into the home of your choice.” June 8, 2018
“Karen Stevenson is a very nice person! She is responsible, professional, and kind. I thank her very much for all her time and help that provided to me as a first time home buyer. I was happy that every time I had questions she didn’t hesitate to answer even if she was busy. Thank you Karen for all your help.” June 7, 2018
Matt & Katherine D.
“Karen went above and beyond when helping to buy and sell our house. She took time at the beginning to figure out our goals for the process and gave us a rough timeline to show how we could meet those goals. She and her teams use of technology made the whole process easy and pain free. I cannot recommend strong enough that you should work with Karen and her team.” May 31, 2018
“Karen and David are a great team. Karen priced the house right and it ended up selling quickly for more than asking price. David managed all the inspections and necessary repair work so we did not have to juggle our schedule. They made the process painless.” March 30, 2018
Emily & Jake H.
“We felt so grateful to have had Karen and David Stevenson as our realtors. We knew selling our home would be difficult after owning for less than a year, and needing to relocate. Karen came in on the first day with her team, and assessed and advised on what small upgrades we would need to sell quickly—and she was right. She and David were with us every step of the process, never leaving anytime between texts and phone calls, always reassuring, and personally finding solutions to the small and larger issues that arose. We felt safe with Karen as she negotiated and fought for the best offer. Her open houses were successful and always brought good news. She took time out of her personal hours to run numbers, and was always working. You could not find a better advocate when buying or selling a home.” March 21, 2018
“Karen, David and Tori were wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. Karen was recommended from our Keller Williams agent from California. We are transplants and first time buyers in Maryland.
Karen and company were extremely patient, accommodating and forthcoming with all our reservations, questions and conditions for purchasing. Karen was professional, responsive, honest, candid and our conscious, which is exactly what we required and desired to find the perfect home especially during the holiday season.
Thank you Karen and company, we greatly appreciate you.” January 17,2018
Briana G. & Glyn R.
“My husband and I are so grateful that Karen was recommended to us and that we were lucky enough to have the Stevenson Group on our team. As first time homebuyers we appreciated that she took the time to help us understand the process and was always available whenever we had a question or concern. Even during the busy holiday season, she really made us feel like we were her #1 priority and that she wanted what was best for us. Karen, David, and Tori were super responsive, trustworthy, and overall fun to work with. Can’t recommend highly enough!” January 18, 2018
“Working with Karen and the Stevenson Residential Group was an absolute dream. I am so glad I chose to work with Karen, who was my constant advocate and offered professional guidance through the negotiation and closing process. Her entire team was always very responsive to my many questions. As a first-time homebuyer, she made me feel comfortable and was always a phone call away if I needed her. She and David guided me through the inspection process and were always keeping me up to date on latest developments. Work with Karen and you will be so glad you did!” December 07, 2017
“I searched for my perfect house for 2 years with multiple agents. I then found Karen who was referred by my sister who heard Karen speaking at a conference. Karen provided me with the knowledge, support, and frankness I needed to find my house. Karen was able to get me to focus on what I wanted and then aggressively go after it. Karen provided helpful feedback regarding each house we visited and really had a good sense as to what I wanted and called me on it when I veered off track. Karen was very responsive to e-mails/calls, very professional, easy to communicate with, organized and knowledgeable about the housing market. Karen also has a very supportive team that are very responsive to client needs. I would highly recommend Karen for any real estate needs.” November 15, 2017
“We worked with Karen Stevenson on the sale of two houses. In 2015 she sold my mother’s house. The transaction was not straight-forward due to problems with the buyers’ agent. Karen managed the process in a professional and uncompromising manner. She held the buyers to the agreed to schedule and when they did not comply she worked with their agent to get the deal closed. We received a fair price and we immediately thought of Karen when it was time to sell our own house. This sale was not as complicated as the first sale and once again, Karen and the Stevenson Residential Group team managed every part of the process flawlessly. From evaluating the market, to negotiating the selling price and completion of the sale, we were informed of the status of the progress. Requests for paperwork were completed electronically whenever possible. Karen was firm with the buyers when several issues arose and she provided us the optimal outcome. We highly recommend Karen Stevenson and the Stevenson Residential Group team if you want to buy or sell property. They are completely devoted to obtaining the best outcome for their clients and you will not find an agent who will work harder for you than Karen Stevenson.” November 14, 2017
“Karen was extremely responsive & communicative throughout the process. She kept us updated with new houses that fit our criteria but was also honest about the true value of homes or challenges that might come up with certain housing features, streets, or neighborhoods when we went to view them. For example, she warned us of features that would not be in the best interest of our family or lower the value of the property for resell. I felt that she had our best interest at heart and was never pressured. Ultimately we went with a new build that did not allow realtors to work with them (since we had visited prior to signing with an agent), but I’d recommend working with Karen and we’d use her again.” August 03, 2017
“Working with Karen was great. We needed someone responsive and able to use technology to maintain engagement. Despite traveling out of country for 3 weeks after listing, Karen kept us informed and the process moving. She also has a strong and supportive back office team to facilitate the process. I would work with Karen again to list my next house.” July 30, 2017
“I was looking to buy a home in the area and Karen was recommended to me by a close friend. From the moment I contacted her, she was professional and extremely helpful. This was the first time I’ve gone through the home buying experience and Karen was able to answer any questions I had and also able to tell me about issues ahead of time that I wouldn’t have thought of. She worked with me to find the right home and helped make the process extremely easy and pain-free. I felt like Karen and the people that work with her always had my best interests in mind and were looking out for me. I would definitely recommend Karen to anyone looking to purchase a home!” June 29, 2017
“Very professional and responsive from start to finish. Good initial listing price. Great help throughout negotiations and with settlement and closing.” June 6, 2017
“Karen was so great! I am a first time home buyer and she was so patient with all of my questions and made sure I understood each step of the process.” April 25, 2017
“Karen is friendly and eager to help a buyer find a house that is what the buyer is looking for. She will present other options for consideration. We looked at many houses over a period of many months, and Karen was very patient in helping us to find the house that best matched our desires in the Baltimore market. She is at the top of our list the next time we buy or sell.” April 19, 2017
“We very much enjoyed working with Karen and David Stevenson. As first time home buyers, they went above and beyond to help us through the process. They were extremely accommodating, for example, taking us on a virtual tour of the home when we could not make the first showing. Their knowledge and expertise are easily evident and allowed us to be competitive in the buying process. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the area, and look forward to working with them in the future!” April 9, 2017
“We found Karen after we had trouble selling our house after seven months and no offers. With Karen’s help and state of the art marketing plan, we got the house back on the market and within a month had two offers. She is the one who you want next to you in “battle”. She has a very impressive knowledge of the area and always works hard for her clients. Selling a house can be a very stressful time. Karen helps you remain focused and keep your eyes on the prize. I am sad that we moved out of the Baltimore area as I won’t be able to use her when buying my next home.” April 4, 2017
“Karen was an extraordinary agent. She was knowledgeable, responsive, dynamic, and fun to work with. She knows how to represent the needs of the seller and ensure that we were happy with the outcome. She was confident in her ability to deliver what we were seeking, and she delivered.
Highly recommended!” March 28, 2017
“The Stevenson Residential Group was WONDERFUL to work with. Having been a former real estate agent myself, it was harder for me to step back and let Karen do her job but I am SO glad I did. The process was smooth and very easy. She knew what we were looking for and went to bat for us during every negotiation period. The people she referred were amazing as well. Obviously, we have recommended her to our family and friends and will always call them when we need any residential services.” January 24, 2017
“Karen helped us in both selling and buying a house. It wasn’t an easy task because we had to be overseas during the middle of the selling transaction but Karen and her team found a way to seamlessly work out all the paperwork logistics. And when we were racing against the clock to purchase another house, once again she came through and passed with flying colors. We found her to be knowledgeable, friendly but professional, kept us in the loop at all times and returned our calls promptly. I can enthusiastically recommend her services to anyone considering listing or purchasing a home.” November 16, 2016
“Karen and David are an amazing team. They walked us through every step of the process of selling our home. They made the transaction smooth and arranged for us to pre-sign documents so that we could begin our move out of state before settlement. I highly recommend their services. Your needs are their top priority and your thoughts and concerns are respected. Our house sold in 5 days!!!!” September 20, 2016
“As a first time home buyer, I was apprehensive about the process and wasn’t sure what to expect. Karen was fantastic – extremely responsive and knowledgeable about buying a home and she definitely knows the area. The negotiation process went very smoothly and she was very supportive and explained the whole process (from initial negotiation, inspections, and closing).” September 19, 2016
“Karen always had a professional appearance and was outstanding in communicating with prospective buyers. She provided advise on staging and low cost cosmetic improvements prior to listing the home. It is amazing how the changes recommended by Karen improved the overall look of the property.” September 13, 2016
Paz & Carin G.
“We can’t say enough about the depth of experience and expertise that Karen demonstrated throughout the process of helping us both sell and buy a home (in the same week no less!) From advising us on how to stage our home to helping us choose from the (many) offers that were made on our house. From showing us homes that fit our unique family situation and helping us think through all the details of a contract . . .Karen fielded our phone calls and texts and made us feel like we were her first priority (even as we knew she was juggling many other clients – cause she is THAT good!). She was professional, friendly/fun, and we truly enjoyed working with both Karen and David! We won’t be needing a relator anytime soon since Karen helped us find our dream home. . .but we will continue to recommend Karen to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!” September 8, 2016
Matt, Shannon & Lucas B.
“Karen has made selling our house as smooth and painless as can be. She definitely knows her stuff! We would recommend her to everyone!” August 12, 2016

Billy & Patsy,
” You lived up to your billing that you could sell the house within 2 weeks and you did it. Not only that you sold my house, you have demonstrated your professionalism and excellence. You have done everything we asked of you and we thank you so much for everything. Please convey our sincere thanks to David as well.” May 1, 2016
“Karen is an attentive, knowledgeable and detail oriented realtor. She helped us sell our home and purchase and was there for us through each step of the way. To my husband and I, this was the biggest life change and experience and I am grateful we had Karen by our side to help us through each step. Karen was always available, responsive and provided the information we needed. From the initial listing all the way through the closing, Karen was involved and supportive. I highly recommend Karen for your real estate needs.” March 6, 2016
“Karen helped me with the purchase of my first home in 2014. I would highly recommend her to any other first time home buyer. She was helpful in identifying areas that fit my criteria and budget. She was very patient and explained every step in the process. She was always very responsive and got back to me quickly. My purchase had some complications and Karen handled them extremely well and always looked out for my best interested. During the process of buying my home I was actually under contact on two house. I found a great house the first time Karen took me out to see homes. I decide to put in an offer and after some negotiation they accepted. However, the seller was insistent that deal be contingent on finding another house. They were under contact on another home at the time and expected everything to proceed smoothly, however, their deal fell through at inspection. Karen had my best interest in mind. She had negotiated a time frame for the seller to find another house into the contract, we extended a few times in hopes they would find something but they didn’t. She also negotiated that I didn’t have to proceed with getting the inspection or appraisal until the seller had found a house. We had continued to look at other houses. When I found another house I wanted to purchase she got me released from the other contract and my earnest money returned. Several things were discovered during the home inspection on the house I ended up purchasing and the sellers were reluctant to fix them. Karen handled the negotiations great, and convinced them to fix everything that was important to me. I will use Karen again when I am ready to purchase my next home. You will be in great hands with Karen!” March 2, 2016
“We started our retirement home search nearly three years ago – we weren’t in a rush and willing to be patient to find it. We were very fortunate to run across Karen Stevenson with Keller Williams. She was the perfect agent for us to work with and the ultimate result was our recent closing on the ideal house for us.The words that describe Karen are those that made this partnership just what we needed: Competent, Knowledgeable, Creative, Courteous, and Responsive (regardless of day or time). She was always one step ahead – anticipating and resolving issues as they popped up. For what is typically a high stress event, this was a smooth, organized, and enjoyable experience. Karen said from the beginning that for her, this wasn’t about a commission, but really about building relationships by ensuring her customers are satisfied. Although we don’t plan on buying another home, if we did, Karen would be the person we would call. Use this real estate agent – Highly recommended!!” July 5, 2015
“Karen was wonderful to work with in selling my mother’s home. She helped make the process smooth, and we sold the home quickly. I recommend her highly.” May 16, 2015
“I have had the pleasure of working with Karen on numerous transactions as the mortgage lender, and I can wholeheartedly say that she is a true professional in every sense of the word. Her real estate expertise and knowledge of the area housing market is fantastic, but what really sets her apart is her complete focus on her client’s needs and insuring that every decision has their best interest in mind. Her outstanding customer service, communication, and attention to every detail of the transaction make transactions with Karen run smoothly for everyone involved.” February 12, 2015
“Karen is very reliable, precise, knowledgeable and responsive. I won’t buy a property in the Baltimore area without consulting her. We got a good deal because of her.” February 3, 2015
“Karen is a great negotiator and knows the world of real estate and how other agents work. She was able to help get us past some major bumps in the road and was definitely on our side when it came to contract negotiation and getting things done. She pushes us to entertain offers that I would have disregarded and was able to bring the offer for the home we were selling to something we could work with. We had a lot of challenges when it came to the sale of our old home and the purchase of our new one (none of which were her fault) and I can honestly say that if we had another realtor we may not have been able to end up in the house we own (and we LOVE our house).” December 15, 2014
“Karen knows her stuff when it comes to negotiation and contracts. Our experience as far as selling (and we used her for buying as well) was a challenge for everyone involved, at no fault of Karen. Her contract negotiation skills were excellent and you can tell she uses her experience from past sales and purchases to leave you, as the client, with no concerns as far as having yourself most protected. She really went above and beyond and was able to resolve issues and keep things moving at points where they seemed on the verge of falling apart due to circumstances of the other parties involved in the transaction. Her team, Debbie and Joanna, were also outstanding, responsive in the rare occasion when Karen wasn’t able to be connected (again, that was not a often occurrence).” November 19, 2014
“As a first time buyer (who didn’t actually know whether I wanted to buy or not) I couldn’t have gotten through the process without Karen. Karen was incredibly patient with me, and guided me through the entire process. After making an offer, she stayed on me to successfully make it through the timeline, and was available to answer all of my trivial questions. After settlement, Karen has stayed in contact to ensure everything is in line, and has followed up on any issues. Both she and her EA are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They removed the stress from the process, and made me feel at ease the entire time. I would recommend Karen to anyone looking to purchase a home, especially first time buyers.” October 16, 2014
“Karen sold our home within 3 days of it being listed. She was right on target in pricing it and was great with all the negotiations with the buyer. She helped me to stage it so it looked great. She also helped us buy our current home. Again, great in negotiating the price with the other agent as well helping us through the inspection process.” February 19, 2014
“Karen was our Realtor when we bought our first house a few years ago. She walked us through the home buying and short sale process. She was extremely knowledgeable, professional, hardworking, and personable. When we decide to sell our home we plan on listing with Karen!” October 27, 2013
Helped me buy a home
“Karen has been amazing. She has a good heart and wants to find you the right house for you and not just to close a deal. She is patient, funny, and has been a joy to work with. She has excellent communication skills and gets back to you ASAP. I would highly recommend contacting her to find your next home.” September 27, 2013
“Over the past nine months I have had the pleasure of working with Karen as junior partner/men-tee. Karen is an extremely driven person with a caring, supportive spirit; a combination of characteristics that are most rare in the world of business. I find her to be extremely knowledgeable and her willingness to share this vast knowledge of Real Estate is simply uncanny. She deserves the highest consideration without reservations.” August 10, 2012
“Karen is the consummate professional, an amazing resource and a tremendous agent. Karen approaches questions with an open-mind, and thinks outside the box to create the best outcome for her clients. Karen is timely and offers a great value for her work. Karen is very creative and understands the market second to none. This is a tough market and I know that Karen has her clients best interests in mind. She is thoughtful and insightful and treats her clients with respect. She is an excellent choice!” July 23, 2012
“Karen is one of the hardest working Real Estate agents I’ve met in my 15 years as a Mortgage Consultant. She is extremely professional and proactive for her clients. I would highly recommend her ( and have) to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.” June 12, 2012
“Karen was a wonderful real estate agent to work with. We just closed on our first house, and the entire process was well organized and ran smoothly. Karen had a lot of patience with all of my questions and was more than willing to help out with anything we needed. She was prompt with responses to my emails and always available when we needed her. I hope we can work with Karen again in the future.” April 23, 2012
“Karen was professional and friendly. I would recommend you contact her to assist you with your real estate needs.” January 18, 2012
“Karen is the best! She really cares and it shows. Thank you Karen for Everything! Gregory Plotkin, CEO Digital Video Enterprises” January 5, 2012
“Working with Karen brought us great results as we were attempting to sell our previous home. She is proactive, creative, made great recommendations, knew all aspects of a deal and just an absolute pleasure to work with. I would recommend Karen highly. Her work is in a class of its own.” January 4, 2012
“Karen was my real estate agent in 2010. I cannot say enough good things about her. She helped me find my “dream house” and believe me: I was a difficult client. Not only did she help find it, but she was a real pro when it came to making an offer and “negotiating” the best price. Moreover: Karen is reliable, punctual, smart, articulate, savvy and very trustworthy. She has her clients’ best interests at heart. I can recommend Karen as a fantastic real estate agent without hesitation.” January 3, 2012
