Karl entered this transaction representing the seller and fulfilling the title/closing transaction. I was the realtor/broker and represented both the seller and the buyer. All of us assumed at the execution of the contract, that this would be a straight forward, smooth sailing transaction. After 2 1/2 months of very challenging negotiations with different parties including HOA boards and their attorneys, two different mortgage companies representing the buyer, a very recent bankruptcy by the seller in a different state, the transaction closed. Throughout the negotiations, Karl was calm, proposed clarity in providing options, thought "outside the box" to obtain action, kept lines of communication open and responded to all. After working with Karl on this transaction, I look forward when I can again work with him and would not hesitate in referring him to others. He is professional and very knowledgeable.
