Karen Brooks is an outstanding agent and she is service oriented. Three years ago when we purchased in Lynchburg, Karen was our link to the community. Karen recommended an auto mechanic and also a hair stylist and answered many questions for us. She assisted with the purchase of a washer/dryer and its installation as we were on a tight schedule after closing. This time Karen updated us on the current real estate market in Lynchburg, helped us with setting the asking price and staging our town home. She also pitched in to sell the washer/dryer and the sale/disposition of extra furniture. Karen sold our town home in record time!!! She kept the inspection process on track and quickly solved an unforeseen issue. We closed while out of state and the closing was uneventful. We highly recommend Karen for her professionalism, her real estate expertise and her compassion. Karen Brooks was realistic and accurate about the real estate market in Lynchburg. The whole process could not have gone more smoothly. We could not be more satisfied!
My wife and I decided it was time to move into a condo and sell our house. Karen was, and continues to be, extremely responsive. We needed a three bedroom,one level condo. There was a paucity of units that met our needs. With Karen’s able assistance, we were able to find a unit. Karen arranged for us to see the unit over the Memorial Day weekend. She helped us make an offer then make a successful counter offer. Karen Brooks made great suggestions for financing, closing, moving company, etc. Now that we have moved, Karen is helping us get our former residence ready to be listed. Karen Brooks is a 10 out of 10!
Karen is a very caring a and intelligent real estate agent. She helped us through the entire process step by step. She made me feel comfortable and confident about my home selection I would recommend her to anyone trying to buy a home. Karen was always on top of things and was always willing to work something out with us. Karen is an awesome real estate agent. She was always there for me when I had any questions. She's a very caring and intelligent person. She is also a very dedicated and compassionate person I would recommend Karen to anyone trying to buy a home. She made the process easy and made me feel comfortable every step of the way.
Karen was exceptional and looked out for what I needed in a home. She went above and beyond what I expected. I would use her services again.
Karen staged our home and helped it look like a million bucks. Our home sold within 2 days. If you are looking for the best use Karen Brooks!
Karen was very in tune to our needs. She was engaged and very thorough, engaging with vendors, other agent etc. r/t projects on the property that had to be done prior to sale. Excellent experience, could not have asked for better service. Very professional and personable.
We knew Karen prior to searching for a home in the area, but had not used her expertise previously to purchase a home. Two relatives of my wife had used her and gave her high recommendations, so we did not even consider any other broker/agent. In working with Karen, she understood what we were looking for and was able to show us homes that fit our needs perfectly. I would highly recommend Karen Brooks to anyone looking for a home in the Lynchburg or Smith Mountain Lake areas.
Karen was the first real estate agent I spoke with when looking at houses. She was the listing agent for a home I wanted to see. At that point, I was just starting my search. I knew when I first met her that she would understand my needs and help me find the perfect home. Karen was extremely patient when helping me find my house. She worked tirelessly to find the home of my dreams. Since I was relatively new to the area, Karen understood the importance of finding the perfect location to suit my needs. I highly recommend Karen because you can trust that she has your best interests at heart. She truly understands her clients' needs, is patient and intuitive, and will work/negotiate to get you the best home. I am very fortunate that Karen helped me find my perfect home!
Karen was recommended to us by a work colleague. She was patient and understanding throughout our home buying process. We appreciate her kindness and great service. We had a great experience with our home search with Karen and would recommend her services to others.
Karen was awesome and treated us like old friends and made us feel at ease. She is very friendly and outgoing. She cares about her clients and you can feel that. We would definitely tell people to use Karen and Century 21 and we wouldn't hesitate to also use her services in the future if needed. Our overall experience was wonderful!!
Karen was referred to me by my old realtor who retired from the business. I had a time sensitive and information sensitive situation and she was professional, diligent, and patient in dealing with every aspect. I wouldn't blame her if she would have turned down working with me based on my situation but she took on the challenge and as more than exceptional. I appreciate her working with me and would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sale a home.
Karen was very prepared during our interview, communicating concrete plans for marketing our home. She also followed up with us afterward, offering us more strategy information and showing she was genuinely interested in making our home sale the best it could be. Karen was an excellent advocate for us throughout the process. She went above and beyond to act in our best interest during the negotiations, sale and closing. I can't say enough good things about Karen's interaction with us through the entire process. Patient, encouraging, professional and generous. I would recommend her to everyone I know.
We had previously worked with Karen Brooks when we bought the house. She was wonderful then and we knew we had to use her expertise when selling our home. She is very knowledgeable in her field and went above and beyond to sell our home. We were so thankful to her and the help she gave us to make it a smooth process. I would highly recommend her to anyone of my friends.
I was going to try to sell my home myself. I had sold two in the past. However, Karen made it such an easy process. I loved having her by my side to help in whatever I needed. She had a painter give me a fresh coat throughout. She sent over a repair main to fix a breaker and another to put Freon in the AC unit. An interior designer gave me pointers as to staging. She even brought in her own kitchen table and decorations. My house looked great. It sold within 6 weeks and was so much easier than having to do it myself. Thanks Karen you are the best!
We greatly appreciate the time, dedication, and attention-to-detail that Karen Brooks put into every aspect of the home-selling process. I can honestly say that she always made us feel like a priority. She kept us informed every step of the way, and was always accessible. Those are things not to be taken for granted. She was always professional and polite, and went above and beyond what one would expect. We recommend her highly, and would use her again in the future.
Karen not only does the job you would expect from a professional real estate agent but she goes above and beyond! When I was concerned with an issue with a right of way she sent out a surveyor to look at the property. I was never charged for this. She was by my side every step of the way. She made sure all my questions were answered. She even called the Fire Dept when I had concerns if they could reach the home due to two small bridges. She came for my home inspection and followed up by bringing a repair man to give me an estimate. She communicated with my lender and closing attorney sending them whatever they needed. She is truly a blessing and you would be lucky to have her as your agent!
I have known Karen for many years and her honesty, integrity, and Christian values are what prompted me to choose her as the agent to sell our home. She was easy to talk to during the process and I could always trust her to be honest and have our best interests in mind. She was always faithful to pray for us during the process which was important to my husband and I, and when I would get anxious about anything she reminded me to stay positive and pray. Karen is one of the most genuine people I have ever met and we are very pleased with how she handled the sale of our home.

Karen quickly understood our parameters and helped us find the property we were looking for. She helped us understand why some of the properties we thought would not meet our needs. She provided the information we needed to make our decision. She also was very adept in getting the issues that were identified in the inspection resolved satisfactorily.
Karen Brooks did a great job in selling this property as quick as possible working hard to meet all of our needs.
We contacted Karen Brooks because she had a listing my husband and I were interested in looking at. That property did not work for us, but Karen was great about showing us other houses and was always available when we needed to speak with her. She also listed our current home and was so helpful about what to do to get it ready for sale. She was always willing to spend as much time as was needed to help us through the process. I cannot say enough good things about her. Would definitely use her again if we ever wanted to sell current home. Great person to work with.
Buying a house is sometimes a bear. It can be a really difficult process and somewhat painful. Karen made it as painless as possible. She was a pleasure to work with and put all of our anxiousness at ease. She was super accessible, and always went above and beyond the call of duty. I'd definitely recommend her to friends and family looking to buy or sell a house. Thanks Karen for making our dreams of owning a home a reality.
Karen Brooks helped in so many ways. Her suggestions as to what needed to be done to give the house a fresh look at a minimal expense were always right on. Ron, was always right there working even nights to quickly accomplish the goal of getting the house on the market as quickly as possible. Her expertise completely filled in our lack of knowledge. Always keeping us informed and quickly responding to questions and concerns. We would completely use her again and confidently recommend her to anyone.

Karen Brooks ALWAYS goes above and beyond! She is so friendly and approachable yet always professional. She makes communication a breeze. I will recommend her to anyone in the market to buy or sell! A++
If Karen Brooks is your agent, you have picked "the best".
Karen Brooks was the first agent we met with and she gave me very good ideas and suggestions to make the house more marketable. Although we later met with 4 other agents before being ready to put the house on the market, we chose Karen as our Realtor.
Karen was absolutely wonderful. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the market to purchase a home. She was very polite, friendly, and understandable. She knew what type of home we were looking for. She was very attentive to our needs and I really felt that she had our best interest at heart. She put 150% of her time and effort towards helping us find our dream home and for that we are forever thankful. We not only look at Karen as our realtor, but we look at her as a friend that we will always keep in contact with for years to come! Thank you Karen for everything that you have done for us! Hope you continue to bless other families just like you have blessed ours!
We were dealing with a very short time period (one week at the most) to find a place for our daughter to live while she attends a graduate program at Liberty University. Karen Brooks listened to the parameters we had for our search prior to our arrival in Lynchburg. Karen showed us properties that addressed our concerns and preferences. We started our search on Sunday morning and we saw at least 15 properties. We made an offer on a town home on Tuesday evening, which was accepted. Karen Brooks is professional, energetic and friendly. She was also a great resource for services in the community. We have the highest regard for Karen Brooks.
Karen we are very grateful for the way you work with us. Thank you and keep up your good work

At first we weren't sure where we wanted to live. We pulled Karen from Bedford to Vinton to Goodview and finally landed in Roanoke. She went above and beyond helping us mold our house into a market ready home. We are very thankful for all of her hard work and attention to detail.
Extremely patient, understanding and a pleasure to work with.
Karen was wonderful. She took the time to help us, she cared about our situation and did everything she could to help us meet our needs. From the moment we met Karen, we knew she was the agent for us.
Karen was easy to work with due to her casual demeanor. She was patient through the process and handled everything in the best way possible.
Karen Brooks did an outstanding job! Being a pastor, my wife and I several considerations in finding the right house for us. Karen worked hard in helping meet those considerations. She was always completely honest with us and went out of her way to help settle on a house. We highly recommend her as a real estate agent. You will not go wrong with choosing her.
Karen Brooks is friendly, knowledgeable, patient. We both enjoyed working with her and recommend her to others. Thanks, Karen!
