Karen was an amazing representative of our interests and concerns. I believe she genuinely valued our preferences and worked hard to make sure the process of buying our first home went smoothly. When disaster struck during Harvey and the first house we made an offer on was destroyed, she worked hard to help us find our current home. We could not be happier!

Karen Sherrill Bio

Karen Sherrill provides exceptional service and care before, during and after the sale. She embraces advances in technology to work efficiently alongside her clients; giving her the ability to close a real estate transaction if you are in Houston, out of state or out of the country with the same personalized service. She is a certified Military Relocation Professional to assist families who have served or are serving. Buying and selling real estate can be very stressful - she takes great care to help clients, listening, providing information with her relaxed humorous style.

Karen came to Houston from San Diego in 2005 with her family. Her experience moving across country, as well as working with families and youth for over 30 years (her husband, a Family Life pastor at a local church), gives her unique insight and skill to assist her clients. Three children went through local schools and Texas Universities (her oldest moved to Houston after college).With all four grown children now living in Houston, and near Austin, two grandchildren and a son-in-law who's a police officer, she understands the changing demographics of a family and type of home that meets their changing needs.

Ask any of her clients for feedback on their experience - or view her client experience rating - many clients have become friends

What do you guys use for electronic signature? Docu Sign or Digital Ink?

I have solely used Docusign for most of my career and have been pleased and never had an issue. My client\'s love it - which is really the most important opinion. Many use Docusign in their business so they are familiar with it already (also a plus). I have not tried Digital Ink, but I know others who have and seem pleased.

Any way to terminate a listing agreement is seller refuses to sign?

It is unfortunate you are in this situation. Paragraph 13, 16 and 17 do detail a seller\'s responsibility to uphold their end of the contract as well as ways to resolve it. Your broker is ultimately responsible and you should definitely defer to their direction and be on the same page. You can also seek guidance/input from the Legal Department at Texas Association of Relators. Since it is a contract any advice on how to handle it would be legal advice and best handled by those with full knowledge and expertise.

What marketing plan would you do if you are an agent new in town or someone who does not know a lot of people ?

Build a strong online presence including social media (Facebook, Instagram, twitter etc). This way as you build your sphere, and when they check you out online, it will build confidence. Work the sphere you have (small as it may be) and nurture and build those relationships. Look for other areas to be involved that connects you with people by volunteering or being involved in groups that will build connections in your target area. Some agents pay for referrals (i.e. Zillow, realtor.com etc) which worked some for my years ago but became too expensive with little results. I now use Buffini\'s method of working by referral to grow my business. You can also connect with the people from where you used to live - Houston and Texas are places many move too so you can often get referrals from out of the area.

Where can I check if any additions made to a home are legal?

If a home has had the additions done legally, the contractor should have pulled permits. You might check with the planning department (or department that oversees permits) in the city it resides to check to see if any had been pulled in the past and the scope of the work. That would be the most direct way to confirm. Of course on the Sellers Disclosure the seller is also suppose to stipulate if they are aware if any additions had been done without the required permits. When in doubt always follow due diligence.

Do I need to talk to a lender to rent a home?

You do not. When you go to rent a home, they will run your credit and also ask for income verifications etc. \n\nYou might want to speak with a lender to see if you can qualify to buy a home, if you are interested. With tight rental inventories it might be easier to buy a home ...and possibly save you some money as well.

Down payment assistance is that a good or a bad thing?

Down payment assistance helps put more people in homes - to me that is a great thing! All programs come with caveats, i.e. higher interest rates etc. You might want to discuss with a local lender to discuss the pros and cons (note: not all lenders participate). I have had many clients utilize down payment assistance, allowing them to move into a home sooner than they anticipated. Below is the link for Texas State Affordable Housing Corporation - they will frequently have webinars that can help you become familiar with programs as well. Some even work with VA loans, thus assisting Veterans even more. The key to any of these programs is a knowledgeable lender and a compliant buyer.

How do I find out exactly what is covered by maintenance fees?

The best answer is to go to the source. Every MLS listing should have the name and contact number for the HOA. You can also frequently find them online. Most maintenance fees cover common green areas, trails, play grounds, pools and recreation as applicable. It can vary subdivision to subdivision. Town homes and condos may include insurance and contingency budgets for exterior repairs and maintenance.

What do you do when an listing agent refuses to have her seller and broker to sign a Release of Earnest Money returned?

All parties are bound by the contract. If your buyer lost their job outside of the parameters of the Third Party Financing, then I believe the seller would indeed keep the earnest money. Regardless, the Release of Earnest Money needs to be signed so the earnest money can be released...to the buyer or the seller. Reach out to the title company and see if they can mediate and get a response for you. You should also get your broker involved at this point. If all else fails, connect with legal at TAR for their input.

How do I contact the real estate agent? He doesn\'t answered my phone calls

If you currently have a working relationship with the agent, I would try texting, emailing or calling his office directly. There might be extenuating circumstances as to why he is not taking your call.\n\nIf you are reaching out to him because he has a listing you are interested in, I agree to connect with a Realtor who can represent you and can make the calls and connections on your behalf. You can use HAR\'s app to locate an agent that works in the area you are interested in. Best of luck

Is it customary for lender to request copy of buyer paid termite inspections report?

If it is a VA loan then yes, the lender is required to have a copy of the WDI report as well as the paid receipt. A VA loan requires a clear termite report as a condition of funding. Conventional and FHA loans do not require termite reports. Be aware, if it is a VA, that any conducive conditions must be addressed prior to closing in order to have a clear report.
