As we were coming on the close of the purchase of the new house, Kareen met with my son and I about coming up with a strategy for selling Big Ben. I liked that fact that she was not letting the purchase lapse before we starting discussing the sale. Kareen paid close attention to our likes and dislikes, but also guided us outside our comfort zone. Her strategy to "update" the Big Ben house was realistic and very doable. We went ahead with the plan and she was phenomenal in scheduling the workers to complete the tasks we agreed on. She was also instrumental in getting us reasonable prices for the work that was to be done. Kareen worked well, and had a good rapport with Amber, the stager. Between the two of them, the design they discussed with me was very "up-to-date" with the housing trends and made sense with the style of my house. Once the property went "live" on the market, Kareen immediately set up times for open houses. This was very pleasing to me. She also reached out to co-workers and other real estate agents. Getting the word out in every possible way. This was also very important to me in the sale of my house. Once it came down to discussing the offers, she brought my son and I in to the office to discuss the contracts. Explaining to us, the difference in each one and which would be the best. The best offer was from a client who was working with another agent in the same office. Kareen kept her professionalism and loyalty at all times. Truly a commendable practice. My son and I to this day, believe it was fate that brought us to Kareen. We hit it off from the day we met at the open house in Granite Bay. Since that day, and all the days following from the purchase of the new house to the close of escrow on Big Ben, Kareen always had our best interest at heart. She came through finding us the perfect house and made our Big Ben House "as perfect" as possible. We will always be grateful for the "above and beyond" job she did handling both our endeavors. Thanks so much, Kareen, for ALL your hard work and sticking by us.

Called her regarding a sign in a yard and she quickly answered and after informing us that the property was sold, she was friendly and assertive to find what we were looking for. Usually we find the home before our searching realtor, but she knew this home could be for us. Just complete service excellence. I don't see Kareen anywhere they would perform suboptimally. How do you find someone with ALL of those traits? Only by the grace of God. Kareen performed above and beyond anyone's expectations, even our selling agent in Arnold. She kept the ball rolling with our contingency far better than our own agent we started with. We began that sell before we showed much interest in looking to buy. Even our realtor stated in a string of emails, "Don and Cheryl, you got yourselves an outstanding realtor there. So we'll educated and great experience. " They are correct.

I have been singing Kareen’s praises since the first time I met her and worked with her. She is authentic, knowledgeable, and grounded.

Looking to buy or sell a home in the immediate area, or even beyond, then look no further than with Kareen Newman of Lyon Real Estate Roseville. From the time we met her at an open house to the final closing and signing of the documents on our new house, there is no doubt that my son and I made the right choice when hiring Kareen. My son sent her an email asking her if she was interested in taking us on as clients. Kareen responded almost immediately to his request and stated that she would love to meet with us in her office. She set up an appointment to go over what she does and how working with a team of realtors is the best way to go. After two hours, we were sold and told her she was hired. I think that was also a deciding factor is that Kareen is down to earth. My son and I like to laugh and make jokes and we immediately hit it off with her. She liked our sense of humor!!! From that first meeting to several showings and open houses, Kareen carefully listened to what we were looking for in a house. Our requests were proving to be difficult, especially in our price range, but she never gave up and continued with her positive attitude and resourcefulness. She was diligent in her search and reached out to her many peers in the field. I was always appreciative of her constant communication with us. Whether it be by phone, email or text. Even when she was leaving on vacation or going away for a few days, she checked in to make sure we didn't need anything, or if we did, to contact one of her staff members. Love, love, love her dedication to her clients. As it turned out, she was able to get us a showing of an off-market property that would soon be going public. She had mentioned our needs to a peer and through that peer, we found our forever home. Couldn't believe that we would actually find all the things we were looking for in a home already built. Again, that WOW! factor that she showed us initially had come through once more. What touched me most, was that she had listened to what we were asking for and not just interested in trying to sell us any home. Score, Kareen!!! When it came time for the negotiations, Kareen went to bat for us. There were some details in the sale that didn't make sense, and she fought for those details and won! Those are the kinds of things I look for in a genuinely caring professional with her client's best interest at heart. As closing time and the signing of the documents came to fruition, Kareen came and spent that time with us at the title company. If we looked to her for an explanation of what was happening, she graciously offered her advice and/or clarification. We so appreciated that. All I can say is that my son and I would never have gotten this far, this fast, had it not been for Kareen. She held our hands most of the way and always took us down the right path. Both my son and I have said, that most things in life happen for a reason. I truly believe that Kareen came into our life at the right place, right time. There was no looking back once she took over our situation and for that we will be eternally grateful. With all of these things said, I would highly recommend Kareen Newman, to any friends or relatives looking to sell or buy a house. Her unquestionable professionalism, caring and friendly nature make for a great pairing in the real estate world. Thanks so much, Kareen.

Without Kareen’s knowledge and input on the property, I don’t think we would have gotten the appraisal and price we wanted. We had tenants in our residence while selling the home. This could have been very difficult but, Kareen made the entire process go smoothly. She coordinated with all parties involved for the best outcome. Without Kareen’s knowledge and advice we would not have received such a high appraisal and sale price. She was very hands on and worked side by side with us to get the highest sales price possible.

Kareen Newman demonstrates natural leadership ability. She projects self-confidence, authority and enthusiasm in her performance. The quality of her work reflects high professional standards. Not all real estate agents are able to consistently maintain the professional ethics and loyalty to the real estate profession as Kareen naturally demonstrates on a daily basis. During our four month relationship, Kareen was very perceptive to my needs. Trying to find a home that met both my daughter and my needs was a huge task. Her accessibility to meet on the weekends or early evenings was never a barrier. She helped us through the disappointments and celebrated with our success. Kareen is able to communicate with credibility and confidence. For the purchase of my home, Kareen collected the results of the house reports, analyze the facts and created a convincing plan. There were conditions that needed to be addressed. Kareen stood her ground and advocated for my family and me. The final outcome was beyond successful. My daughter and I consider Kareen Newman a very special friend. We already miss our daily phone call and emails. I have and will continue to recommend Kareen Newman to any one who is considering a move or wanting to sell their house.

While during the final walk through, Kareen Newman pointed out areas that needed to be fixed/cleaned that I had not even noticed. Kareen had the selling agent take care of those items for us.

Kareen Newman was an excellent advocate for us in the sale of our home. She saw the value of our small home based on the quality of the upgrades and the location. She was knowledgeable about the neighborhood and was able to market our home in a way that maximized our sale price. When we ran into some snags along the way (of which she was not the cause), she worked with all parties involved to achieve a resolution quickly. Her hard work and communication was critical to keeping the sale on track while we worked out the snag. I can't express how important her role was in helping us keep our buyers after extending escrow and completing a couple of projects on the home. We live out of town and relied on her to communicate with the city and with contractors on our behalf. She was trustworthy and on top of the situation on a daily basis. I would recommend Kareen to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home. Her work is exceptional. I am now happy to consider her a friend.

We were fortunate to use the services of Realtor Kareen Newman, in the purchase of our investment property in Folsom. This was a complex transaction, with environmental and other issues, and Kareen was the consummate professional throughout the process. She was always professional and calm, even under trying circumstances. When we needed advice, if she didn’t automatically know the answer, she would research and get back to us immediately. She was always available, even during off hours, which we really appreciated with our our busy schedule. We highly recommend her due to her professional demeanor and pleasant personality, but also because she was tenacious and got the deal done! Thank you Kareen! Darcy and Dave Johnson


Kareen Thank you so much for all your hard work… you really helped make buying our first home a great experience. Please feel free to stop by whenever to see all the new work we’ll be doing on the house! Best wishes, Tony, Cathy, and Colin Williams
