Buyer Services

At Karten Real Estate Services, I understand that a house is not a home because of its wall colors, spacious rooms, and sparkling new appliances. It’s about how you feel the moment you walk through the front door, and whether you instantly envision your future there. That’s why I am committed to helping you find the home of your dreams.

As you work with me, you will find I deliver fast, professional, and courteous service to keep you informed and feeling at ease as I help you find your perfect home. I listen to your needs, whether you’re looking for neighborhoods with performance-driven schools or a bustling shopping area, and I am ready to show you the places that will make your new neighborhood special.

To help narrow your focus and distinguish your wants and needs in a home, I will provide you with several options, from popular properties to listings you may not have previously considered. This range will showcase everything a particular area has to offer. I want to make sure you have explored all your options before making one of the most exciting decisions of your life. Rest assured, I am at your service.


I want to be your Realtor for life. I am here to build relationships and help you plant roots in a neighborhood you love.

There’s nothing quite like witnessing a client fall in love with their home. The excitement, the investment in the future, the life-changing power of this process, all make my job rewarding.

I am passionate about buying real estate and delivering results to my clients. When you trust Karten Real Estate Services to help you find the home of your dreams, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you have an advocate and trusted expert to guide you through this exhilarating journey.

Licensed in New York, our team provides exceptional service in beautiful neighborhoods located in Bayside, Douglaston–Little Neck, Flushing, and Whitestone New York.

Your first meeting with me will be a no-obligation consultation, which allows us to get to know each other and build a relationship. During this initial discussion, I will establish clarity between your wants and needs in a home, including price, layout, amenities, and the type of neighborhood in which you see yourself living.

I will also help you explore optimal financing options, as well as determine your purchasing power. This crucial information will provide me with the details I need to help you purchase a home you love. When you decide to buy with Karten Real Estate Services, I will diligently research to find breathtaking homes and neighborhoods that fit your criteria. Once I have compiled a list of properties, I will provide you with detailed information on each.

After you’ve chosen homes you love, that’s when the fun begins! I will take you on exclusive tours that will illuminate the unique features each home and neighborhood has to offer. Once you’ve found the place you want to call home, it’s time to make an offer, and you can depend on me to be there for you every step of the way.

Closing the Deal

Now that you have chosen your dream home, it’s time to close the deal! Not only will I prepare the purchase agreement and negotiate on your behalf, but I will also work tirelessly to help you through the hurdles of inspections, repairs, insurance, and the financing period. No matter the stage of the closing process you’re in, you can count on me for constant communication and to be a resource to you for anything you may need to help you close the deal on your future home.

When closing day arrives, I’ll complete a final walk-through with you before settlement, so you know your new home is ready for you and your family to begin building the memories of a lifetime. After the settlement is complete, I’ll be there to celebrate this momentous milestone with you! I genuinely look forward to being your Realtor for life, which is why I work hard to gain your trust.

Financing Your Home

To help you save some time, I always recommend securing a pre-approval before you really dive into your home search. This creates peace of mind knowing that you’re qualified to purchase the home you love. Once your offer is accepted, you’ll go through the process of finalizing your mortgage loan.

If you do not have a lender, I am happy to provide you with a list of my most trusted lenders and regular partners. These lenders will help you overcome credit issues, a shortage of down payment funds, and even connect you with available grants and loan products you may not have considered.

By securing a pre-approval, you will feel at ease knowing you can spend most of your time looking at homes within your financial scope. You can count on our team to be by your side, supporting you as you embark on this exciting journey of finding a place to call home.
