Working with Klara has been an outstanding experience. As a competent professional, she is calm, organized and knowledgeable about the neighborhood and real estate in general. She is reliable in answering phone calls, emails, text messages and provides reassurance, which I needed on more than one occasion! I trusted Klara in supporting my best interests as well as her ability to be fair. Klara was instrumental in selling my house in record time for top dollar. I highly recommend that you contact Klara.

"I could not have a found better realtor to help me sell my home. As soon as I signed the paperwork giving Klara the option to sell my home, I was instantly taken care of completely. She helped every step of the way. Klara went over all the paper work with me and helped me understand what I was signing.

She helped me with lots of updates and explanations on what was happening during the sale. It would have been impossible for me to get through the sale without her expert guidance. I could trust her with any help that I needed. She was always by my side and working for my best interest.
Thank you Klara!"

When it comes to purchasing a home, Klara will always be our number one recommendation. She knows the rules of real estate, takes the time to understand her buyers and want they need, and carries out her job with complete professionalism. She does not play games, and will not compromise her integrity to complete a sale. We were first time buyers and she explained everything, answered all our questions, and always returned phone calls and emails immediately. Klara is incredibly personable and easy to talk to. We were thrilled with her and will always plan to use her services in the future! Lindsay & Charles Wheeler

"Being a non-national foreigner relocating from Europe to the US, being without credit history and in the country only on an irregular basis at time of purchase – I must have been one of Klara’s more difficult clients. I have to say, without Klara it simply would have been impossible. One hundred percent reliability, perfect preparation, countless extra miles she walked for us and most importantly her network of collaborators from home inspectors, credit brokers even the carpet cleaners made it possible. Thank you, Klara, you created two more clients for life.

There is truly a separate class of realtors to choose from between the full-time professionals and the part-time pretenders. In my experience, it follows the 10%-90% rule where ten percent of the realtors are doing the bulk of the work. Having bought and sold over a dozen homes, I have worked with several realtors and never felt the inclination to write a review before. Working with Klara Straus-Henkels changed that. I would put Klara in the top 1%. It was a pleasure to work with her. She was professional, knowledgeable, responsive and thoughtful. You will notice the difference immedidately and be thrilled you made the decision to work with her.

"Dear Klara-I am so thankful that a trusted friend referred me to you when shopping for a new home. Working with you through all the complex requirements and details of a purchase was an absolute breeze and a delight. Having the benefit of carreers in technical medical sales as well as real estate myself, I found your timely professionalism and consistent clarity a real treat. Mine was not a very expensive property but you treated the whole process as though it was worth millions of dollars. One could not ask for better service and follow-up than you continue to provide, and I look forward to the opportunity of working with you again and sending you referrals.
Sincerely, Paul"

Hi Klara,
We hope you'll stop in to see the transformation of our new home. We have all of our new furniture and the yard is almost all completed. We are so happy we moved into this wonderful home and neighborhood. Thank you for making it possible. We appreciate all you did for us.
Regards, Steve and Gretchen"

"Dear Klara,

George & I want to thank you so much for being our Realtor. We really felt cared for during the entire process. We credit you for selling our Summerhill home so quickly - especially in this market.
As you know, we absolutely LOVE our new home- the view, the spaciousness, everything. I told George my dreams have been exceeded- and you are a part of our dream coming true.
By getting basically our asking price we've been able to customize our new home to our liking! In addition I have to say a HUGE Thank You for the basket of goodies, I love it ALL. That was so kind and generous. Getting the Mother's Day card was the icing on the cake since it is my first Mother's Day.

Perfection Klara - that's what you did.
