    Karie was wonderful to work with. Her response time is lightening fast and she gets the job done right. She is wonderful to talk to on a personal note too, which made our experience far less stressful than anticipated. Her willingness to go above and beyond expectations is what makes her a great realtor. When she was willing to tackle requests after hours, or even on Sundays, it meant a lot to us. We are forever grateful for her pulling this dream off for us. We will definitely ask for her assistance if needed in the future.

    We met Karie by accident. I guess God really knows what He’s doing. We have used her twice in the past two years. She is extremely knowledgeable about the lake. She goes the extra mile, especially with advertisement.

    We happily recommend Karie Jacobs to anyone looking for a house at the Lake of the Ozarks. Karie responds quickly. She is thorough and knows the area well. Karie anticipates issues and avoids complications upon closing by addressing them earlier rather than later. She is trustworthy, personable, flexible and easy to work with.

    I've been working with Karie for approximately 5 years. I lived out of state and during this time she provided me with listings in the Lake area. My dreams of living on the Lake were made effortless once I retired from my job with the help of Karie. I moved to the area and with her help she not only showed me properties in my price range, she provided me with expertise knowledge of the area. Within a very short period of time, I had found my dream home. I closed last week and couldn't be happier. I chose condo living. At nighttime the white and blue lights of the docks are simply magical. I am living my dream. I hope you too will find your soul's desire with the help of Karie. I am forever grateful to her for providing me with her professionalism, joyful spirit, masterful negotiation techniques and friendship.

    Karie went above and beyond in helping us purchase our condo at Lake of the Ozarks. She was very knowledgeable about the entire process and guided us the through the appraisal, financing and closing process. On time and under budget.

    Karie sold a house that was unusual in that it had many levels and a different floor plan. I doubted that it would sell quickly, but thanks to Karie's enthusiasm,professionalism and extensive knowledge of the market, the home sold in a slow market. I would recommend Karie Jacobs without any hesitation. tom marsala
