Here’s what some of my clients are saying about me:

‘Karen and her assistant Mary were great to work with. Very professional and friendly and helpful. Always went above and beyond! We are very happy with our experience! ‘

Heidi & Dan 


‘Karen and her entire team are both professional and knowledgeable.’

Phil Droznika 


‘From planning a listing date to getting our property sold Karen handled every aspect professionally and with great patience and resources. She had a solution for all of our needs and did an excellent job helping us to prepare and stage our property. The marketing was the best we’ve had in all previous sales so when she sold our home in less than a week and brought us a substantial over the listing price offer, we were extremely happy. We would not hesitate to recommend or use her services again. Excellent work Karen and Team’

Barbara Little Meaford Ontario 


‘Although Karen is a friend, I have many friends who are licensed agents. Karen has always distinguished business with friendship and this was very important for me. I would not hesitate to refer Karen to potential vendors and purchasers! It is a good combination to be qualified, have expertise, and have compassion and care for your client. Karen has all these attributes! Royal LePage rates 110 % in my books.’

Maureen Basnicki, Admiral’s Gate, Collingwood 


“Karen is extremely pragmatic and very honest in her assessment of the target properties. Her approach to negotiations was firm and this gave me confidence that we would not over pay. 

She has a very strong sense of the market and was respectful of our “wish list” for the new property. 

Karen was flexible in meeting our availability for viewing the target property on multiple occasions and was very patient in giving us the time to consider all aspects of the deal. She was pro-active in researching issues and questions that arose and clearly focused on delivering for us as her clients. 

We are more than happy to give Karen Willison our total endorsement – and commend her for her (and her team’s) exemplary service throughout our recent purchase transaction.” 

Mike & Gillian 


‘Karen is professional, knowledgeable and super friendly. She works very hard for the seller.’

Elke Christensen, Collingwood, ON 


‘I was very impressed with her follow-up on each area. Very professional and I really liked her zest for life and love for her career. Mary Law – amazing – great team!!!! I will be using Karen and team for purchase of property for my daughter. ‘

‘When our neighbour’s property sold, we inquired about his realtor and he enthused about Karen Willison of Locations North. My wife and I interviewed Karen and were impressed with her knowledge of the real estate market, her friendly personality and overall positivity. We chose her as our realtor and she maintained those high standards, going on to exceed our expectations. From start to finish she stayed in constant communication, remaining always professional, always efficient and personable. Karen was instrumental in turning what could have been a stressful experience into a positive outcome, aided by friendly staff helping to implement a team approach to successful selling. Our listing was stellar, including a stunning aerial video and pictures, as well as a powerful listing blurb, all of which captured what we consider to be the essence of our property. For those seeking their own positive outcome, we recommend Karen wholeheartedly.’

Frank and Patsy Mueller, Markdale 


‘Karen is very knowledgeable about the area, builders, details and partners with some excellent complimentary partners which is a big value added. She does a great job and gives 100%, we would highly recommend her!’  

Bill Girard 


‘Karen knew what we were looking for and had a wonderful way of guiding us through the choices. We were new to the area and she has such excellent knowledge of the area that it really helped us find the right property for us. ‘

MLR – Toronto 


‘Karen was excellent in every aspect of the sale. She was available and responsive, helpful and enthusiastic. We had an excellent experience which is doubly satisfying given the Covid situation. Karen went above and beyond what was necessary. We have recommended her to others and believe that she is and will be very sucessful going forward. She clearly enjoys her job and gives full value to customers. ‘

The Proberts, Lora Bay 


‘Karen Willison is a very hard Working and thorough Broker, who respects her clients and works hard to satisfy their needs and concerns. We would highly recommend her to friends and family. We wish her continued success.’  

Virlie Dainty Collingwood 


‘The deal on this lease-club land was a long arduous journey to get closed. I don’t think it would have happened without the level of professionalism, knowledge, and willingness to go above and beyond displayed by Karen. She even contributed with her expertise and local knowledge at initial on-site meetings with planners, engineers, conservation authority, and plumber. She was very resourceful from arranging meetings with local trades, interested builders and even helping with plans for my husbands surprise birthday! She always thought ahead, and would even bring snowshoes for us, or book meeting rooms and lunch for our meetings in the area. Also when trades/professionals/we needed to access the property, she would coordinate with the ski club or even greet them in our absence. Thank you so much Karen, you were an absolute pleasure to work with.’  

Sarah & Todd 

‘Thanks so much for taking such great care of my Mother throughout the sale process. You went well beyond what could be expected of any real estate agent in dealing with all the details that were frankly not your responsibility yet helped my Mother so greatly in a very stressful time for her.  I appreciate your detailed communications throughout and your professionalism all of which created a very favourable outcome.’

‘If I could rent a “Billboard” I would tell the world how wonderful it was working with you & Royal LePage.  From start to finish (only a month) it was effortless for me. Your attention to detail was awesome. I will be telling all of my friends – if selling call Karen. Thanks a million. ‘

The work done, before, during and after the sale was really impressive.’

You not only sold my home and helped me purchase my new condominium but went way above and beyond helping me co-ordinate with the lawyers, bankers, and movers etc. At my age, moving is a stressful proposition but your kind, patient and caring approach made the process so much easier and less stressful.’

I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in need of an agent. Thank you so much for all of your hard work.’

WOW!!! The MLS listing is absolutely amazing. I am so thrilled with it and you have surpassed my expectations. The pictures are beautiful and the write up is superb.

I’m grateful to you for being your fun, humorous self with me … I’m glad to be dealing with you.’

Patti and I would like to thank you very, very much for your hard work, patience and your extreme experience in finding our dream home for us.
Al & Patti

Although selling and buying is not an easy process – you made it seamless and were available whenever we needed you.
