What people are saying about Kari

Kari worked with us in the sale and in the purchase of our 2nd home.

I first “met” Kari via phone and discussed about the possibility of selling our home though we had not completely made the decision.

I would have Kari do every real estate transaction in the future because:

1. Her professional and honest advice based on her knowledge, while acknowledging that she doesn’t have the crystal ball.

2. Her thorough knowledge of the market.

3. She truly wants to do what is best for you. Throughout the whole process, it was about what we wanted. She never tried to persuade us to sell our home or to buy – she simply explained the market and pros and cons of selling now vs later. Same with the purchase.

4. She goes extra mile or many extra miles. She worked with our property manager, got the house ready to sell, organized repairs and showed the house – while we were several hundred miles away. She did all this while keeping us totally informed. Her willingness to go extra miles for us didn’t end with the contract. She took care of any issues that came up during the entire process up to closing. She was even there to help us move and bought a lock when we noticed that a lock wasn’t working. She clearly understands the challenge of selling/buying a 2nd home. She did EVERTTHING possible to make it easier for us.

5. She is extremely thorough and efficient -- from signing of the contract through closing. She studies every detail, informs and reviews every aspect of the closing process. She informs us things that we need to review, sign, return etc; if questions arose, she contacted the appropriate persons to clarify. This was a great comfort to us especially since we were working long distance.

6. She was/is so much FUN to work with! We’ve never had so much fun selling or buying a house.

I could go on for much longer, but I think suffice it to say, that I will be recommending her to all my friends and families - and certainly for any of our future real estate transaction.

Sunny Kang and Hak Choy Dallas, TX

Buying and building a home in Breckenridge, while living in Texas, seemed like it would be an impossible task, but Kari made it easy and fun!

Her personal attention and professionalism and communication made our home buying experience an absolute pleasure.

Karrie and Doug Pennebaker San Antonio, TX

Kari was our realtor when my husband and I bought our beautiful home in Breckenridge several years ago, and working with Kari was a dream come true. She was always prepared, knowledgeable, and on target with the homes she showed us. Best of all, she was a good listener and wonderful at helping us sort through our feelings about the homes we saw. My husband and I have moved a number of times so we know a good realtor when we meet one. Kari is more than good - she is outstanding.

Lynne and Jim Turley, New York

To put it simply, our experience working with Kari Canfield was the very best! Her knowledge about the market and her advice for selling our home was spot on. Kari was readily available for us whenever we called upon her, competent and extremely hard-working. We have used several different realtors in the past but the personalized service we received from Kari was a first for us--and certainly a pleasant surprise! Our only regret about selling our home and moving to a distant area is that we will not be able to use her exceptional realty services again. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through this process.

Jenny & Bobby Murphy

Sometimes you just get lucky. We met Kari as a walk in. Our time in Breckenridge was limited and Kari immediately found half a dozen places for us to see. We did not find a place which met our demanding expectations. For a year Kari sent us updates once or twice a week, and even threw in some of her mountain recipes. Then on another short notice visit to Breckenridge, Kari again made arrangements to see a number of homes in our price range and with our size requirements. She found us the perfect place, helped negotiate the perfect deal and really made things happen. She burned up the phone and email lines checking details; I don’t know how many trips she made to the home to help us with details. Even after closing she was helping with things like getting locks rekeyed. We found the perfect home by first finding the perfect real estate agent. I would recommend her to anyone looking for real estate in Summit County.

Paul Bailey Colorado Springs, CO

I've had 30+ years in the residential real estate business. Kari Canfield is certainly among the best if not the very best broker I've had the pleasure to work with. She's knows her market and can explain easily differences in product. She works hard for and is straightforward with her customer. She's enthusiastic and honest. What more could you ask for? I would hire her in a minute to buy or sell my next home!!

Real Estate Developer

Kari Canfield with Coldwell Banker was the realtor we used in identifying the “new build” home we wanted. She was very helpful negotiating with the developer for terms, conditions and additions that suited us. The same applied to her help in negotiating our final purchase and sale agreement. Then, through no fault of hers, the project was delayed by 18 months due to the death of the original developer and the introduction of the successor firm. She continued to work closely with us through this very extended, delayed project and throughout, gave freely of her time, talent and experience to bring the project to a closing last fall.

Through the 2.5 years from contract signing to close, she availed to us a wonderful, positive personality, knowledge, help and services above and beyond what I would have expected from a realtor. There wasn’t one instance where she gave the impression of impatience with the project and never, to me, showed any concern for her commission.

I would highly recommend Kari to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in and around Breckenridge, Colorado. We will certainly retain Kari and her firm again in all future real estate transactions in this area.

Kevin and Carla Aul Dallas, TX

We met Kari Canfield in 2013 when we began looking for a second home in Breckenridge. Kari actively maintained contact and provided up to date information on market conditions and availability for two years. During a visit to the area in 2015, Kari listened carefully to our description of what we were looking for and directed us to our perfect home. Kari’s energetic character, knowledge of the market and sincere desire to help her clients meet their goals made her a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend her to be your real estate agent.

Lee and Karin Flagg Austin, TX

We are currently working on our third real estate transaction with Kari Canfield and could not be happier. Kari is professional, yet very personable, reliable, trustworthy, smart and a real pleasure to work with. She definitely knows the Summit County real estate market. My husband’s brother is an agent in Denver and could learn a lot from Kari! We have been extremely pleased with her attentiveness, and prompt response to all of our questions and concerns. She always has a timely answer and explanation for us. She has great concern for what we want and need when locating properties for us. We would highly recommend Kari. She is the best!!

Su and Jack Pickenbrock Longmont, CO

My husband and I would like to state that Kari Canfield was truly exceptional as a Realtor! She consistently performed with the utmost professionalism and dedication to helping us get the perfect home for our needs. She worked with us from the beginning search for a home, to the final financing of the home. Her knowledge of the area and her key contacts in the community were exceptional. We would highly recommend Kari Canfield as your Realtor!
