Sam was excellent from start to finish. He met with me at the house to go over points of interest and get a feel for the home. Within two days he had the home on the market and was able to schedule showings that day. His earnestness and diligence really paid off and he was able to help me close on the home.by Ian H.
Karen is great. She goes above and beyond for her clients. She offered great advise and was always there when we needed her. She helped us sell our home and also helped my daughter and her husband buy a home. She was just wonderful. We all recommend her highly.by Carol O
Looking for an experienced, full-time, thorough, realtor? Look no further and consider the successful track record for Karen Hollon at Fontana Realty. My husband and I lived in New York and were looking to retire in the Ocala Florida area. We interviewed several realtors to help us find that perfect forever home and we awarded Karen with our buy because she was all of the above. Her style of communicating and discussing our needs quickly convinced us that she could assist in the confusing venture of buying a home 1200 miles away. After several telephone calls where she assessed our home buying needs she cleared her calendar for our three day visit to look at homes. She was prepared and tireless in taking us to many well appointed communities often providing insider tips, information, reviews and history on the builders and the various communities along the way. She gave us a great tour of the Ocala community and helped us to see the charm of this historical town. We chose this central Florida area for many reasons, but Karen helped us see beyond the travel folders and feel the history and pulse of the city. Karen Hollon’s information and hard work was pivotal in our final purchase decision, but she wasn’t through working for us yet. To our surprise she’d only just begun. While we waited the six months for our house to be built she was in constant contact assisting with the nuts and bolts of relocating to and navigating a new city. Over the following months, Karen met with us on several more visits to Ocala as we began to transplant our lives from the north. She found us temporary living accommodations, provided contact info for area health and home services, mortgage financiers, suggested restaurants, places to shop and interesting activities. Karen is a full service hands on professional realtor. Karen showed us that real estate is more than just showing houses. It involves understanding how to carefully listen to your clients to turn their often underdeveloped dreams into a reality. She demonstrated what real caring and hard work for the client looks like. She was there for us from beginning to end resolving the big real estate issues as well as the picky lifestyle details. It’s one year since we met Karen and our beautiful home is built and we’ve moved in. As my husband and I enjoy our beautiful home we can’t thank Karen enough for making this process smooth and seamless. In Karen, we not only found an A-1 hard working professional realtor who helped us to get our dream home, but we also found our first friend in this awesome community.by Nina 2019 Stone Creek
