Tell Us Your Story

Did Tom and Klara change my thoughts on needing a realtor to buy a home?

? Abso-stinkin-lutely!! Browsing homes online, going to open houses and looking up specs... easy peasy. Negotiating contracts, understanding the fine print and most importantly knowing what the heck is happening during escrow? This is where the dream team really shines! Our new home was not only going to be where we grow our family and build roots for the years to come. It’s also the largest financial asset we own. It is very important that you have someone you can trust, who will advocate on your behalf, for the best possible outcome. Buying a house is very daunting. Tom and Klara were so patient and understanding with our questions, concerns and maybe the occasional irrational moments one can experience, occasionally. We were so grateful to have them on our side of the table. There are many moving parts during the entire process, from offer letters all the way to getting those blessed keys. And no matter how many episodes of House Hunters I watch, I am not an expert in real estate. Tom and Klara were there to answer our questions and even ask questions we didn’t know to ask. We are now in a home we never thought was within our grasp. That beauty with a view at the end of the cul de sac. You know the one, that’s our house! And we have Tom and Klara to thank for that.

Klara and Tom were excellent agents.

They live in the area and know it quite well ,which makes it an asset. They are very much on top with the current housing development in the area and all the on goings in the Encinitas/Carlsbad areas. They are the best all around, very easy to communicate with and will respond back to all your needs in a timely manner. Never really had to worry too much since they were always on top of things. We were amazed that they actually sold our home with a tenant still living there. If they can do that, then they can just about sell any home. I highly recommend them over others and put my trust in them. If we had to do it all over again, they would be the first we'd call.

I am so grateful to have found Klara.

My amazing grandma passed last year and Klara Straus- Henkels & Associates were recommended by a family member to help us with the sale of grandmas home in Carlsbad CA .Our family lives over 500 miles from Carlsbad so it was important we found a competent , and professional real estate company to work with. We knew there could be hurdles, however Klara and her team made every hurdle so smooth. Her team was very knowledgable and also helped us avoid a possibly messy probate by setting us up with the right people . I cant thank you and your team enough Klara!
