"I have personally bought and sold at least 10 homes in my life time and have lived in 9 countries in the last 20 years. During buying and selling, I have worked with several agents. Karen Baker is definitely the best real estate agent that I have come across and for sure I would never in the future see such a talented, sincere, smart, ethical, ground to earth, responsive and most importantly a nice person like Karen. I loved every moment of working with her. If you want to market your property, please look no further, Karen is the best of the best. I highly recommend her.

"Karen Baker was everything we could have asked for in a real estate agent and advocate. While professional in every way, we also got a sense that she cared about us in a personal manner as well. She represented us in both the selling of our existing Oak Brook home and in the search and purchase process for our new home. We cannot say enough good things about Karen. We were 100% satisfied and very impressed as well. Sandra & Lyle Hill Reposted from Zillow.com, posted 10/05/2015"
