"As a first time home buyer, I was not too sure of what I was getting into. Karen Amaru guided me through the process and was always available. She assisted me in finding a mortgage broker, attorney, home inspector and contractor as well as being there for every step of the way. I would highly recommend working with Karen if looking to buy a home! She is fantastic!"

Robyn Denke

"Karen is caring and committed to her clients. She has helped me and my family to seal two separate deals on our house in 2012 and 2013. I just feel safe dealing with Karen. She took care of our deals from beginning to end to make sure we were happy with everything. It's been a pleasure doing business with Karen."

"Karen is a wonderful partner in finding the best opportunities for you to consider. She really listens to her clients, has great vision and truly does the work to protect her clients interests. She is very responsive as well."

"Karen is an overall terrific broker. She is extremely knowledgeable about Fairfield County as well as specific neighborhoods within each town, with particular expertise in Westport, Weston and Fairfield. She is responsive, personable and engaging. Karen listens carefully to her clients and makes every effort to meet their needs. Her many years of experience provide her with invaluable skills that result in a smooth real estate process for buyers and sellers alike. We have used Karen for multiple transactions and have recommended her to friends."

"Our experience with Karen Amaru was extremely positive. We were selling our home after 28 years, and she could not have been more understanding and supportive. She is personable, caring, and always upbeat and enthusiastic about her work. I believe she was instrumental in getting us the right buyer and the best price for our home."

"Karen is thorough, patient, and a very committed. We looked for 15 months for the right home and she helped us get a retnal until we found the right property(2008) at the right price. We made a good investment and our house has appreciated continually in a rocky economy. She has sold a cousins home in Wilton and just his week helped my parents purchase a home after moving from the west coast. Being a realtor is her passion, it is not a side bar to her life,....she lives and breathes real estate! Case in point, she was showing us property the day before her wedding and probably would've shown us a house on her wedding day(we didn't know this till after) had it been necessary. You can't go wrong with Karen as your guide."

Debra Tobias

"Karen is the consumate professional. Her knowledge, expertise and patience are what seperates her from the rest. She is honest and really has the home owners and/or buyers interest at heart. We have worked with Karen on multiple transactions and have referred her to friends as well."

"From the first moment, Karen was a consumate professional who went above and beyond. From negotiating, to getting lists of preschools and registering us for a train commuter parking sticker...she was all we could ask for and more."
