Karina helped us purchase our first home, and then 4 years later sell that home and buy a new one. I could not recommend Karina more! She is friendly and genuine, it feels like we have known her forever, like a family friend. She looks out for her clients and wants the best for them. She is also extremely professional and has many contacts for mortgage broker, inspector, lawyer etc which makes the process so much easier. Karina is an excellent communicator. If she didn’t know the answer, she would ask and get back to you. She would email document la and send a text to make sure you received it. Karina worked so hard for us over a holiday long weekend to get us ready to list our home and to have our offer on a new house accepted. We sold our home in under 4 days for well over asking. I highly recommend Karina Sanford to get you into the perfect home for your family! - Tristan

Thanks to Karina we sold our house in two days! We found her very knowledgeable, pleasant and answered all our questions. Highly recommend! If you are looking for an Agent she is the one! - Edward Rowe
Reply: Thanks Ed! I was so happy to be able to help you sell your home for the most in your pocket, refer you to all of the professionals you needed for success and in the shortest time frame. Excited about the great success experience for you and Lori!
This is now my second purchase I have done through Karina, and I will always choose her to be my realtor. Karina takes the time to make special bonds with each of her clients so that they know she is there to support them and cheer them on in exciting times like these, even with the current state of the market. She always does her best to take on the stressful moments and leave the good times for her clients to enjoy. Karina went above and beyond for me in both sales and I would strongly recommend her as your realtor, if you are looking for a personable, reliable, hardworking, and dedicated person. Thank you Karina! - Sonya Sanford
Reply: I love helping you find your new home! It's the perfect one for the lifestyle that you have.
Karina was phenominal in leading us through our sale from start to finish. Through her dedication and professionalism, she was able to guide these 'nervous first-time home sellers' through a very sucessful and quick sale. We couldn't have chosen a better agent. We give her an A+ for her caring and empathetic demeanour. Abolutely everything we needed as an agent for our home selling experience! - Debbie Smith
Reply: So glad you had a great experience Debbie and Shawn and we were able to achieve the most successful outcome. Being your Real Estate Agent was was my pleasure.
We knew moving would be emotional and stressful, but we had no idea just how complicated and challenging moving from one province to another would be. Even though we were going home, a lot has changed in 30 years. In addition to handling the selling side of things, Karina was able to connect us with a great realtor in Newfoundland who understood our needs, helped us understand the current market in that province, and helped us navigate the remote closing process. Thankful for Karina and her network in making moving a manageable process. - Ed & Christina Light
Reply: So glad we had a successful result for your next steps. Glad to be able to help connect you to a professional in your new home to help you find a home as well. Wishing you lots of joyful memories made in your new home.
Karina was amazing! I should have listened to her from the beginning. I have bought and sold over 20 properties in my lifetime and I thought I was smarter than my realtor and the market. I was wrong and Karina was right about the pricing. If I had to do it over again I would have listened to the expert. She helped was price the home to sell and guided us along in this unusual market. Then the unexpected happened at the last minute (well 5 minutes before closing) the deal fell apart. We were devastated. Karina picked up our spirts and we put the house back on the market and following Karina's advice sold the house again the next day to a lovely couple. I think it is easy to give praise when we get the price we want and the closing goes smoothly. That was not the case here. But the level o professionalism and caring that Karina displayed as we went on this journey was incredible. Karina rates a 10 out of 10 from me. If you are looking for an agent that will go the distance with you . Pick Karina. Thanks for all you did . - Jim Hanifen
Reply: So happy we were successful in your goal! So glad you chose me to be your Real Estate Agent!
Karina is a star. I was unsure of how to sell a property having never sold a house before. She was so quick to answer any questions, offer realistic views and have referrals when I needed some. She made me feel that she was with me all the way and was as happy as I was when it sold. After it sold she would still check in to see how things were going. Karina is a caring person that wants help you. I will recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell. You won't find anyone better. She is a 5 star agent - Brenda Stroh
Reply: Being your Real Estate Agent was my absolute pleasure! Being there for you was my goal. I was so happy we were successful in your sale and you were able to move forward my friend.
Karina was an absolute pleasure to assist me in selling my home of 12+ years. It was a difficult decision to make, and Karina gave excellent advice all along the way. It truly felt as if I had known and trusted her for years. I would gladly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell ! - Mark Gregory
Reply: It was my absolute pleasure Mark! 😊
Karina is helpful, professional, pleasant, honest and up front. I trusted her to have my best interest. She was quick to respond to my many questions and concerns even during evenings and weekends. Would definitely recommend Karina for all your realtor needs. - Colette Weare

We found Karina was very friendly and easy to communicate with. She made everything very easy for us. It was only on the market week before it was sold. I would reccomend Karina to any of my friends buying or selling. - Florence Daley

I found Karina to be very knowledgeable and easy to deal with. Karina always returned emails and phone calls and answered all our questions. We could not have found our new home without her. - Diana G
Karina did a great job trying to explain what was happening with the market in Halifax as it was so abnormal. We got a great offer based on the unprecedented situation with the market in Halifax. We did get the lowest sale price of three identical homes in our immediate area which isn’t the best but it was all timing. - Emily
Karina went above and beyond to exceed my needs. She truly listened to what I was looking for and fought hard for me to get it even in this crazy sellers market. When we weren’t successful, Karina kept trying until we were. She really cares about her clients and I will always recommend anyone to go to her. She is thorough, and helped me during my first time home buyer experience, made me feel comfortable and kept positive through all of the unsuccessful offers. If you want to have a real estate agent that is real, hardworking, reliable, and passionate about giving her clients everything they want, she is the girl for you. - Sonya Sanford
Karina was knowledgeable and especially patient with me as I had to prepare the house for sale while my husband was at RCMP depot training for the 6 months leading up to the sale. She took care of everything which led to a sale over 60k above asking. Amazing! We also used her to buy our home 8 years prior and she was just as amazing then. We would highly recommend her for buying or selling. - Shannon Olson
Karina is very, extremely knowledgeable, so responsive and helpful. Sold our parents home within 10 days, closed within a month. We could not have asked for better service. Thank you Karina. - Carol Rolfe-Higney
I worked with Karina when I bought my house almost 8 years ago and I am so glad I worked with her again when I decided to sell my house this Spring. She knows the industry, she gave great advise, and was there when I needed her. She is so wonderful to work with. I highly recommend her! Thank you Karina. You made selling my house a much more positive experience than I expected. - Anna Jacobs
Karina was really helpful. We are newcomers in Canada, so we didn’t know too much about the process of buying a house and our English is not very good, but she is so patient and explained us every process twice or three times. She also never told us no to view a house, even when she is so busy and always asked our emails so fast. She is so profesional as well and gave us good recommendation about the neighborhood or houses. We really appreciate her help and thank her we are close to live in our own home. I absolutely recommend her and I would use her services in the future if I need it. - Constanza Navarro
Karina is a bright and positive person as well as professional agent. She definitely is persistent, honest and diligent . I would recommend her for your real estate needs! - Wendy pickrem
Karina was extremely friendly and very responsive. She made the buying of our new house incredibly seamless and as stress free as possible when buying a house out of province. - TINA MCAULAY
Karina offered excellent service on my purchase of a house in Nova Scotia. She went above and beyond to finalize the sale which was purchased from another province. - Wendy McDougall
Reply: Thank you Wendy! It was my pleasure to help you with your lifestyle change to NS. Enjoyed working with you and Tina to get you into your new perfect for you home!
Karina was helpful and encouraging from the very beginnings of our home selling journey. She researched comparable listings, and informed us of each step of the whole process. She answered our many questions with patience and good cheer. She obviously knew the market as the third showing netted us a full price offer, with no conditions. She made the whole enterprise as painless as possible. Much has changed in the 38 years since we last dealt with selling a house. - Sharon Windeyer
Reply: It was a pleasure to help you both with your home selling experience. In a time such as this using safe and professional methods to sell your home on day we went active on MLS. Using my experience to pre market your home to limit the amount of in person viewings resulting in the results exactly as you hoped. Thanks Tom and Sharon!
Excellent work ethic, always available to answer questions. Did an open house the first week. Picture of the house on line were very nice. I recommend Karina to everyone. Awesome real estate agent. - Ghislain
Karina was a pleasure to work with. She listened to our concerns and guided us through multiple offers. Always smiling and listening and very professional. We woul gladly use Karina again and will refer her to everyone we know. - Kimberly Mann
Karina helped us through a home purchase when we were under a lot of pressure (the mortgage rules were changing and we wouldn't qualify unless we bought THAT DAY). We were totally clueless about the whole process. Even though the pressure was immense, and we weren't even sure we wanted to buy (as opposed to rent), she fully supported us through this strange situation, didn't apply pressure, gave us all the facts and was there with us every step of the way. She's as genuine as they come, and she TRULY cares for people. Karina is a gem, and we were (and are!) lucky to have her on our side. Highly recommended! - Brianne Hunsley
Karina was an excellent agent, worked hard to close the deal quickly and to find exactly what we were looking for. She did great in negotiations and in ensuring the deal went through with an offer we were satisified with. - Heather Harman
Karina, is very personable and certainly enjoys being busy with everything she does. She is very social media savvy and knows how to use that to publicize her listings and expand her business to help her clients - Angela
Karina was fun to work with and showed she really cared for us. We heard from Karina regularly to make sure everything was going well and was quick to connect us with the service people we needed in order to close the deal quickly and efficiently. - CHRIS HARMAN
