Have you ever met someone you instantly click with? That is the way it was with Karen. Karen and her husband Eric stopped at one of our garage sales that we were having to prepare to sell our home of 28 years. My husband, Ralph was talking to them when I came out and Eric asked if we were planning on selling and Ralph said yes. Eric said "Well, Karen is a realtor", Karen said this that is not why she was there.

It was a pleasure to work with Karen Williams-deCastro, realtor on the sale of our Tavernier home. If you are looking to purchase or sell in the Florida Keys or South Florida, I offer you my highest recommendation of Karen at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Destinations. Combined with the seamless professionalism of Coral Reef Title, this was an incredible experience all the way around! In an absolutely insane real estate market, Karen was able to navigate every single part of the transaction with a calm, cool, confident disposition.— Jenn W.
I met Karen almost 13 years ago through Facebook shares about my twins born early. I didn't know then that Karen would make such a great impact on my life then. Just a friend online offering support to a new mother of twins. My husband and I wanted to move from Indiana to Texas. We had no clue where to start looking for our new home. I reached out to Karen to see if she could help us and she did it! I highly recommend Karen no matter where you live! She is a magical realtor that has an outreach to realtors everywhere!— Bridgette G.
We just closed on our house and Karen was wonderful! From start to finish, she listened to what we wanted, and never got discouraged when we didn't even know what we wanted. After 5 months of looking, Karen thought we might like to view a house I had seen previously online but was thrown to the side as a noncontender. Once we got inside, we knew Karen had found the one! Very knowledgeable, kind, and hardworking. Would recommend her to anyone buying or renting!— Erin K.
I couldn't let the day go by without showing appreciation to Karen Williams, a realtor who went over and beyond to help me purchase my home. If it wasn't for her, I almost gave up, but she wouldn't allow me to give up. I'm forever grateful for her motivation and determination to help me purchase my home cause it ain't easy buying in the keys but guess what? I did it. Thanks to that man up above, my sister, and yours truly Karen Williams-deCastro.— Tammie S.
