“It’s all about you”
-Kara and Ron

Whether you’re looking to sell your home quickly and at the price you want through a Harcourts auction or buy/sell your home traditionally, enter the real estate market prepared. Working with Kara and Ron gives you 20+ years of expertise in real estate and risk management, and an experience that’s all about you.

Harcourts Auctions

One unique option to consider when selling or buying your home is through a Harcourts Auction. Unlike other auction platforms, Harcourts only deals in non-distressed properties, ranging from homes, condos, townhouses, multi units, land or commercial properties.

Attracting buyers to the property itself, not the price, all interested buyers submit paperwork and registered to bid before the excitement of the auction begins.

As the seller, you’re in complete control with the ability to accept an offer before auction or choose not to sell if bidding does not meet your reserve. As the buyer, you can be confident that the true market price for the property will become clear and that negotiations are open for all to see.

“Kara has represented my wife and I on a number of transactions. When we were presented with an opportunity to purchase a vacation rental, we immediately called her and she ran the comps for the property and the properties which needed to be sold to make the deal happen. We decided Harcourts Live Auction was a unique method to drive traffic to the homes which needed to be sold and received multiple “auction ending” offers!”

- Sherry Bates and Christie Forman

“I purchased my home in Long Beach with Kara as my realtor in June 2012. Kara is the consummate professional. She is thorough, reliable, trustworthy, and extremely knowledgeable with regard to home selling and buying. Recently, I relocated to New Mexico and with Kara’s expertise, I was able to sell my home in Long Beach without any complications or worries.”

- Barbara Lawrence

“We want to acknowledge and express our gratitude for the excellent, cordial and personalized quality of the realtor service we received when Harcourts Milestone Advisors sold our home for us. In an informal conversation, we described our ideal sale transaction: no hassles, no intrusive hustle and hype. Well, darn if you didn’t do all of that and more. We are happily settled in our new home with its magnificent view of San Francisco Bay and its landmarks.”
