Biography

After years of owning an interior design business and being and avid "weekend warrior" of home renovations with my husband, I entered into the real estate arena in 2004. I've seen the extreme highs and lows of the market since then. I have learned so much and continue to learn with every transaction. Each transaction is different because each selller/buyer has different reasons and motivations for selling or buying a home. I have consistently held a top spot as a multi-million dollar producer throughout my career. I attribute that success to listening and understanding my client's needs. Additionally, I have aligned myself with some of the best business partners in Mortgage, Title, Home Inspection, Contractors, Electricians, Plumbers, Landscapers, Photographers etc....Its a pleasure to work alongside these professionals to combine their talents along with my professional experience and expertise. 

I have personally bought and sold many properties. Whether the home was new or old, there was always a project to be done. My husband and I were knocking down walls and buying fixer uppers before it was a "thing" on TV. We got into a pattern of buying, fixing, staging and selling. Each house sold quickly and for top dollar. Real Estate, Staging and Design services compliment each other. I have honed my staging skills and became an Accredited Staging Professional in 2013. I have created a staging options system for my seller clients to implement into their homes. You don't have to spend a ton of money or knock down walls to sell your home. However, it does need to be staged if you want to sell it quickly and for top dollar.

My business has been blessed and has grown through the client relationships and friendships that have developed throughout my career. My clients have referred me to their friends and family many times. Knowing I have helped someone achieve a goal or a dream has been a special experience and I am very grateful for the opportunity. I hope to have the opportunity to help you achieve the same.

Testimonials

I cannot think of one thing to recommend for Karen to improve upon! She is simply amazing as what she does to help, and we've worked with her now selling a house, and buying a house. She is special!

- Brian Sullivan

Karen was the seller's agent for my condo in Nashua and she went above and beyond all expectations! I actually selected her as the seller's agent because she helped me to buy the same condo in 2014 and it was a great experience back then also. She was unbelievably professional and helpful in explaining everything from the very first meeting. She did very careful market research and we priced the property very fairly so that it would appraise correctly. She also provided some excellent staging services that made the property look fantastic and definitely helped get many offers in the Open House. In addition the cleaners and other contractor recommendations were excellent. Karen then guided me in selecting the best offer and to find the optimal one - this is not always so simple in this crazy market. Overall it could not have been a better sale! I highly recommend Karen Sousa for any real estate transactions in N.H.

Karen was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish! As first time home buyers, we didn’t know what to expect from the process but Karen guided us through effortlessly. She took the time to explain things to us in detail, sent us helpful resources and even went the extra mile to connect us with other experts throughout the process to ensure we were fully informed and taken care of. Throughout every step, it always felt like she was on our team and she made sure our priorities were her priorities. Her candor and professionalism were invaluable and made us feel incredibly confident in a process that so easily could have been stressful. We are so grateful to have her as our friend and realtor and would highly recommend you work with her if you are buying or selling!! She truly is the best of the best!

- B Stowell

Karen Sousa is an exceptional Realtor! On the day we met, she came prepared and from that day forward, it was an wonderful experience. She is a true professional. Her knowledge of the process, guidance through it, and kind and caring personality always set the right tone. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with her.

- Janine Hilton

Karen was wonderful in every aspect of the listing, staging, communication and the sale of our vacation cottage. I would highly recommend her and Berkshire Hathaway home services in the future to all my friends who are interested in buying or selling . Great job Karen! You're the best !

- Roland Cassidy

Karen is a pleasure to work with, she takes the worry and stress out of the whole real estate selling process. We have hired her on a few occasions and her passion and understanding of buyers and real estate make her the perfect choice to represent us in our real estate needs. On our last project, she helped us stage the home, it looked so nice we almost decided to keep it.:) We look forward to working with her again on our next project. Scott

- Scott Dionne

We met Karen after we saw one of her properties listed on Zillow. We contacted her and Karen was able to get us a showing that accommodated both her customer/seller and us. From our very first visit we were warmly welcomed and impressed with Karen's knowledge of the property along with knowledge of the homes history. The home was exactly what we were looking for and we made an offer. As we were not from the area we asked Karen for vendor recommendations... Karen so graciously provided some guidance for home inspectors and local banks. We worked with some of the recommended vendors (who were also extremely helpful) and closed on the home within 5 weeks. The entire process was flawless and we owe that experience to Karen's professionalism, helpfulness and prompt communication with us throughout the buying process. We highly recommend Karen Sousa to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home!

- Marcia & Roger Aubin

Karen loves her job, and is always available to answer any question you have. She is only a phone call away, and has always returned her call promptly .

- Robert Desrochers

Karen is exceptional at what she does and the utmost professional. She's an incredibly skilled staging expert, she's knowledgeable, she's patient and she knows how to manage all the little things when you're selling and buying simultaneously. She also operates with the highest ethics and is as friendly as can be. If you are considering a real estate transaction or might need a little staging help, you're not going to find a better realtor. Thanks for making the buying and selling process awesome Karen!

- Chris

Karen helped make selling our house a smooth and easy process. We had to sell rather quickly, and she took care of everything! She went above and beyond and helped answer all the questions we had, no matter the time of day, and took care of all the details. She was more than our realtor, she is our friend, and we trust her completely. She helped us buy and sell, and both times she made what can be a very stressful and confusing ordeal easy and smooth. If we were still in the area, we would use her in a heartbeat when we are ready to buy again, and we HIGHLY recommend her!

- Katherine Lall

Karen was simply amazing. Every step of the way she was not just very helpful but so interested in what mattered to us. And her ability to help us stage the home is what led to several quick offers, including one $10,000 over our asking price. And she is simply a delight to work with. I have purchased and sold 4 homes through the years. She is by far the best agent we have ever worked with.

- Brian Sullivan (agent/attorney in fact)

We worked with Karen nearly 12 years ago to purchase/build our very first home and had a very pleasant first home buying experience. When we began exploring a vacation home in NH we connected with Karen again to help us with this transaction. She did not disappoint! We had a few bumps during the process and she always took the time to keep us updated and suggested alternatives ways to navigate the situation. We would HIGHLY recommend her to others.

- Michelle Cole

'Karen was a steady hand throughout the process of selling our home. When we hit bumps in the road, she didn't panic but was composed and reassuring throughout. She was very responsive and answered our questions. She is extremely knowledgeable, not only about real estate in the Nashua area but she's also familiar with lenders, contractors, home inspectors, the selling process, etc. Karen is experienced and knows what she is doing. On top of it all, she is kind and honest. We're grateful we partnered with Karen in the sale of our home. Ron and Stacey'

Having known and worked with Karen Sousa for more than 10 years, I'm pleased to say that I'm one of her biggest fans. Karen is courteous, thorough, knowledgeable and caring. She gives every transaction her very best effort and sincerely enjoys helping change people's lives for the better. Her background in interior design gives her a definite edge. She offers expert advice on home staging and color consultation so that listings are presented in the most appealing condition. Karen recommends home staging for every home she lists, ensuring that they sell quickly and for the best price. Call her! You'll be happy you did.

I have known Karen for a long time; however, I have never had the opportunity to use her real estate services until this year when my Mom was looking to sell her home. Although she was new to selling in the Town where my Mom's house was located, her persistence to become familiar and more knowledgeable was steadfast. Karen's assistance in getting through the selling process was extremely helpful, from start to finish, for all members of my family. From interior design, staging, contractor referrals, sales knowledge, negotiation skills, patience, persistence and due diligence, Karen works hard for her customer to see them through a successful outcome. I honestly don't think I could have gotten through it without her! I highly recommend her for all your real estate needs, and if you're not sure, just chat with her for a few minutes and you will see it for yourself.

- Patty R

We worked with Karen Sousa on the sale of my Mom's house. Karen was outstanding. She guided us through the process from beginning to end, recommending work we should do in order to get the best price. In the end, the sale was quick and painless. Karen is a true professional and I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thanks for all your hard work Karen.

- Steve

Karen Sousa listened to every comment we had on every place to try to fine tune our needs without taking anything away from what we see, but she could recommend based on what she learned. You will be hard pressed to find someone more patient and caring.

We really appreciate Karen's professionalism and tenaciousness in a very difficult market to successfully sell our home and get us to our target town, neighborhood and dream home. We are thrilled! Karen was always so responsive and willing to do what it takes to get our home sold. She used all the tools available to her to market our home. We consistently had showings and she was always upfront about what we needed to do and when we needed to do it. We really enjoyed working with her and getting to know her.

- Mike and Christine

Karen certainly went above and beyond my expectations. She was always very level headed and gave knowledgeable advice. She didn't just want to put us in a house but rather a home.

- Sean

Karen did a nice job handling a particularly difficult selling agent. She also checked in on some items the sellers needed to complete to get their money out of escrow.

- Brian

Karen was well informed on the renovations that I made to my condo, and communicated this information effectively to all involved in the sale of my property. A job well done. Karen is an excellent communicator and very knowledgeable professional.

- H. Killip

We are extraordinarily happy with Karen. We took all of her recommendations for preparing the house for the market, including using her contacts in construction/contracting and we got an offer after having the house on the market for only a week---and we got asking price. She was fantastic. All of the people who viewed our home commented that it was showing really well and we feel we owe a large part of that to Karen.

- Rein and Dianna

Karen Sousa went beyond what I ever expected from a real estate broker. She worked extremely hard on getting me the price I wanted for my home, and did analysis to back up our price. She also worked very hard on making sure I paid an appropriate price for my next home. She was on top of all the details for buying and selling. I have sold homes 3 other times, and by far she was the best broker I have ever dealt with. She takes her job very seriously, and works harder than any other broker I have met.

- Beth

As my buyers agent, Karen went over and above in helping me and looking out for my interests. She recommended a real estate lawyer, did necessary research, and was very flexible with our meeting times. Her questions and concerns were very useful in assisting me to make the right choices. She was equally as knowledgeable, and efficient as my sales agent. I appreciate all that she did to make my transactions go smoothly. She always conducts herself professionally and kindly.
