Karen Benvin Ransom

Associate Real Estate Broker
License #:
Bedford/Katonah New York

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for a really pleasurable experience working with your office – esp Karen Ransom “ I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for a really pleasurable experience working with your office. Karen Ransom knows we think the world of her but I also wanted to convey to you that I was very impressed with the level of professionalism and personal service that you, Karen, and every everyone else that we worked with in your office provided throughout the process of buying our new house and selling our old house. BY the way, the Houliahn Lawrence website is head and shoulders above the other brokerage websites out there. Again, I just want to thank you and I will of course recommend Houlihan Lawrence to anyone that I know. — RMC, Buyer & Seller"

"Thank You for what you did for us! On that score I drove down our "old" road the other day and noticed one of the houses like our was up for sale by XXXX. Out of curiosity I looked on Zillow or whatever to see what the story was. Well I knew it was identical in layout to our house and pictures suggested nicely decorated (like ours). But the sales description as presented by XXXX was totally pathetic. I had a copy of the info/pictures you prepared for us with what a descriptive write up should be like ("up a sweep of a driveway, etc etc"!!!) That's a sales description! And I know it helped sell our house. Anyway, you can check it out if you want to see what your competition isn't doing. We're still totally happy with how things worked out for us. Thank you again."
