“Karen was such a pleasure to deal with in our move from upstate NY to Wake Forest. Karen was so patient and understanding while she showed us many houses. She answered every call... The first time! Karen always followed through on every thing she said she would. She helped us find a home that we truly love. We are so thankful to Karen for making sure that our move went as smooth as possible. We would always turn to Karen for ANY of our Real Estate needs.”



“Karen is a wonderful person and a great agent. She worked very hard for my wife and I. She made our house selling and hunting very enjoyable! Please give this lady a raise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”



“Karen was fantastic working with. I certainly appreciate all that she did during my house search and closing.”



“I was introduced to Karen through my son in law’s sister which has a Keller Williams franchise in Nashville, TN. Karen turned out to be the absolute best at her job and didn't treat you like a client but as a friend. She is very personal in that she was very easy to approach and discuss what we were wanting in a new home, she made sure she stayed in contact with us almost every day as we went through the search. Even if it were just a text to say good day and she hoped all was well. Even if the search took us many miles from her own territory she was certain to meet us there and have all the information about the home and its surroundings.


I will have to say Karen made our search and the purchase of our new farm one of the most memorable and greatest experiences that we have had the pleasure of having in the search and purchase of our new 56 acre farm. I would recommend Karen to any of my friends and family and think the world of her as she is one of the most professional and caring people in the real-estate profession.”


“Just an amazing experience with Karen. Since we were moving from another state, and we didn't know much about this area in general, we had to look around different areas to truly find what suits us the best. Karen was so patient, and also informed us various points of information and advice that I consider good friends and family would normally share. She is so welcoming and made us feel comfortable from the beginning till the end of the home search. We love our new home and most of all feel really lucky to have her as a realtor. From business side, she is very knowledgeable and has a great network in town, which helped us a lot. From service side, she got that down!!! I don't know if anyone can top that honestly! Attention to needs, prompt to communicate…. endless lists to talk great things about her! Highly recommend, if anyone is looking for a home in Raleigh & surrounding area. Thumbs up!!!”




“Highly knowledgeable and extremely professional. There isn’t a better person in the business!”


“I can't imagine a better experience with a realtor! The house-buying process is stressful, so it is crucial to feel 100% confident in who is on your team. Karen is whip-smart, knows the Raleigh market like none other, and has a heart of gold.” 




“Karen was a "relief" to work with after a horrible experience with a previous agent. She is extremely responsive, I don't know how she gets any sleep, her responses are always quick and at all hours. In the rare case that she didn't have an answer to a question, she was quick to contact her huge team of professionals and respond back quickly with an answer.
We had a very difficult agent of the buyers of our home, but Karen was professional all along the way while their agent was just horrible to her and us. She never lost her cool and represented us so well. We will recommend Karen Machikas over and over again…”



“Karen does an excellent job for her clients. She goes the extra mile at every turn: professional photography, high quality marketing material, etc. If you are looking to buy or sell a home in the Triangle; Karen is the perfect realtor for you.”


“We found Karen by accident. Let me tell you some of the best things in life start out as "accidents". Karen is now not only a trusted business advisor, but part of our family. Her loyalty, diligence and experience are top notch. She genuinely loves her job and enjoys assisting clients. We would recommend Karen for new buyers up to the most experienced buyers. 5 stars!”
