Ask Karen LaChapelle


Karen was wonderful through 7 offers. We had to walk away from 2 houses and she was motivated through all of them and I always felt she had our best interests in mind! Third time was the charm and she helped put everything together very quickly. Thanks Karen!

- Tristan McManus

Karen gave us good advice to clear out the unit before putting it on the market. That was a good incentive and we got an offer just a few days after putting it on the market.

- Janet A. Roe

Karen was fantastic for the moment we first met to closing. She was very flexible with her time. She was always quick to respond and answering any questions we had.

- Laura Nelson

Karen was awesome to work with especially in today's market with valuable insights and direction. We are looking forward to working with her again and would highly recommend to anyone!

- Chad Nelson

As new retiree's moving into the area, Karen was a wonderful help in helping us to find just the right house. In a very tight market, she was always responsive, encouraging and enthusiastic. I could not ask for any better or professional assistance in a wide ranging search for a very specific dream. Thank you Karen, you're the best. Frank Beaty

My husband and I are new to NH and one of our house requirements was that it be approximately 1 hr from Boston. Karen connected us to the Collaborate site which helped our search tremendously. Still, Karen was showing us houses from the state line to Manchester to the coast. She was an absolute joy to work with and gave encouragement when our offers were declined. She knew our house was out there, and yes, we found it. Her communication is the best and we would have been lost without her organizational skills. To say she kept on top of things would be an understatement. She was there for us every day and was a text or call away. She knows her business and knows the state. For 2 semi-retired people from North Carolina who don't know the intricacies of New Hampshire, I think we found the perfect person. She is a gem!

- Elizabeth Beaty

Very friendly and professional service

- Donna M Russell

Karen was a pleasure to work with! I am extremely happy with everything that she did for us. Being a first time home buyer was a little nerve racking but she made it easy for us. Thanks again! Brian Russell.

- Brian K. Russell

Karen genuinely cares about the home buying experience and puts forth her best effort to land clients in a home they LOVE. She is very patient and encouraging of her clients to take their time and find the place right for them (can be hard to find in the real estate world). She is VERY communicative and is an excellent liaison throughout the entire home buying process. Thanks Karen for helping put our family in a home we LOVE.

- Shawna Sammis

It was absolutely wonderful to work with Karen. From the first moment we met, we hit the ground running! She was a guiding force the whole way from start to finish!!! Not only did she help us move into our dream home, I think her as a friend. Selling and buying our home(s) was a positive and yet emotional journey. Karen’s style was a great fit for our family! I will, without a doubt, recommend Karen to all!!!
