"It was our first year when we were annual members…and when we joined it was a peak for a lot of the clubs and there were not a lot of rentals. It was to the point where if you saw a place and you thought it would work, you didn't think any further than that and you signed the papers and that was that because if you gave it even twenty minutes, it would be gone. We started looking fairly early in the fall and it just wasn't happening. The people I was dealing with weren't getting what we needed with four kids…
I don't know how I found Karen's number, but I phoned her in desperation in November and she actually spent at least an hour on the phone talking with me, getting to know me and figuring out what I was looking for. I didn't know the area [but]…she took the time to get to know me, and then she showed me a few places.
In that short three years [of renting and looking for a property to purchase,] Karen and Russ became [our] friends. They started as our real estate agents…[but] we are now more friends than we are clients…"
"My wife and I used Karen and her partner Russ a number of times with real estate transactions in the Beaver Valley area. Karen was a pleasure to work with and we were delighted with the results. We wouldn't hesitate to use Karen again and recommend her to our friends."
"We first met Karen when we started skiing at Georgian Peaks in the late 1990's. She helped us each year to find rental accommodation for the winter ski season. In early 2001, we decided to buy a recreational property in the area and turned to Karen and Russ to help us. Their knowledge of the area was incredibly useful. Beyond that, what really differentiates their approach is the way they got to know my family. They understood our needs and were able to guide us in making our selection, both of rental properties and our purchase. We have stayed in touch with Karen and Russ. They are now good friends and a continual source of great advice and insight into the area that we now consider our second home. I would highly recommend the services of Sea and Ski."
"Sea and Ski has been wonderful. I would definitely use them again if we were moving. Russ went out of his way. He knew exactly what I wanted and found it. They are very personable and lovely people…In fact, if it wasn't for him, we would have ended up with a bad property. He found the problem and saved us because we didn't know anything about rural living."

"As a first time seller of a property, Karen was a God-send! She expedited the sale of my chalet through her knowledge, guidance and grace. I highly recommend her for any real estate adventure."
"Karen helped us when we purchased our chalet, and provided direction through a very complicated situation.
Her property management group has recently cleaned our chalet and they did a fantastic job. I would highly recommend Karen and her group."
