I just received this the other day by email ~ what a nice surprise!

Back in 2008, after accepting a job transfer to Alberta, we listed our house in West Kelowna.  Unfortunately, it was just after the market began to soften, and our house was listed high.  After 2 years had passed, and many price reducgtions, we decided to list with a different REALTOR®.  I then remembered back to when we first put our house up for sale, having received a visit from a VERY pleasant and friendly REALTOR® while working in the yard. Her name was Karen Guy.  We called Karen, and she helped us set a fair market price and quickly went to work.  In less than 2 weeks our house was sold for 99% of asking price.

This winter we decided to invest in a West Kelowna vacation property, so again we called Karen.  With us not knowing exactly what we were looking for, and what the current market conditions were like Karen patiently and courteously again went to work.  We only knew Karen from the sale of our hoouse a couple years earlier, but she had stayed in touch and we felt very comfortable dealing with her.  Enough so that when she found us a great deal, we made an offer and closed the sale long distance without ever viewing the property!

If you are buying or selling proeprty, we strongly recommend you give Karen Guy a call, you'll be happy you did.

Hi Karen,

We just wanted to thank you for the tremendous service. Having you on our team, working on our behalf across 4 time zones made this condo purchase very efficient. That is also a credit to your thoroughness and attention to detail - getting things right the first time and being available always.

We really appreciate the connections you have within the Kelowna marketplace enabling quick and accurate information and the ability to close the deal without issue even while we were traveling. Purchasing real estate from a distance was made easier because of your generous service completing the review of deficiencies and the final walk through.

Your patience and great sense of humour enhanced this purchase experience.

Your are a great ambassador for the neighbourhood. We are looking so forward to our move to West Kelowna!

Merry Christmas Karen! Thank-you so much for the card, calender and chocolates!

I love the calender! I find I really use that style so useful for keeping track of all my daycare stuff. I love my new place and neighbourhood. I'm SO glad I made the move. Everything you did for me helped make things go smoothly so THANK-YOU from the bottom of my heart! Love, Bonna


It was by pure chance that we met Karen, it was whilst viewing a condo at which she was the REALTOR® on duty that day - it was a chance meeting that we were not to regret.  We asked if she would come to our home and give us her expert opinion on a value and what our expectations should be.

Through her expertise, she made the selling of our own home and finding another a most enjoyable experience.  She was there for us whenever we needed her and always with a smile no matter the circumstances we found ourselves in.  She was caring and treated us as if we were family.

She sold our house within a month for 97% of the asking price - astonishing in this economic climate!

We would have no hesitation in recommending Karen to any prospective seller or buyer as she is the most professional and caring person that you will find in the real estate business.

We wish her all the success and happiness for the future.

Working with Karen Guy of Coldwell Banker Horizon Realty was a great experience for the whole family.

We have dealt with our fair share of REALTORS® and Karen Guy was by far the most professional and understanding. She went above and beyond in marketing our West Kelowna home (hiring professional photographer) and was always there to help with things if we needed a little extra help.

She maintains a great website and a caring demeanour and we couldn't have asked for more while selling our home. Karen treated our family with respect and patience, knowing that it was a difficult transition for us leaving what was our last home before we moved into a 55+ condo community.

Thanks so much Karen for your friendship and service!

Sincerely, Ivan & Olive Penn and M. Quinn


Karen Guy was one of six REALTORS® I have had the opportunity to work with over the past five years.

To put it simply- she was the best.

Even though I had many changes to my wants during the search for a new home, she took the time to actually get to know my needs and helped me formulate a plan to acquire a property that was perfect in terms of practicalities and price. She kept me up to date with property availability and saw to it that I had quick access to view these properties.

She was very patient and understanding. She made it a priority to be available for quick consultations and helped me find additional resources when needed.

I also found her business ethics to be superb and her personality very easy going. I have no hesitation in recommending Karen Guy to anyone that is looking for a hard working, personable, and ethical REALTOR®.

We were thrilled with the experience we had selling our house with Karen Guy of Coldwell Banker Horizon Realty. A former resident of our neighborhood, Karen knew the area of West Kelowna Estates (Rose Valley) very well and helped us price our home appropriately. She was innovative in how she photographed our home and constructed the virtual tour for potential buyers to view online. Our house looked beautiful and showed well. She even walked our dog while we were on holiday!

Karen was accommodating and accessible; always easy to reach and provided lots of feedback. She kept the traffic up and conducted tours for REALTOR’S to increase our exposure which resulted in many showings.

Within three months of listing with Karen Guy our house sold at a price we were happy with.

We would recommend Karen Guy for anyone buying and selling a home.

We interviewed several REALTORS® and chose you based on your enthusiastic, professional approach and ability to problem solve. We were not disappointed!!!

It was truly a team effort and we appreciated your honesty when it was needed.

You promoted our Kelowna home constantly and had a great strategy when more than one offer was on the table. Selling in May 09, in less than 90 days and for asking price was a huge victory for all of us!

Finding a new home that met our long list of specific criteria was a tall order. Even though we changed our criteria somewhat, you had lots of patience and were supportive that it was a journey of discovery about what we really wanted.

We were able to connect all the dots and make the big leap! Through your networking, we found that nugget of gold and were able to put an offer on the perfect house, the moment the listing was activated. The result is that, by all indications, we got a fabulous deal and we could not be happier with our new place.

Most of all, we were impressed with your integrity. We would definitely recommend you, with confidence, to our family and friends.

Thank You!

My husband and I recently listed our home with Karen Guy. She was very professional and performed all tasks admirably. Karen was recommended to us by a friend and we in turn would recommend her to other potential sellers and buyers.

Karen did a superb job in all aspects from helping us to determine our listing price to making sure our home received top exposure to both her fellow realtors and the buying public. Karen worked steadfastly on our behalf and we were thrilled when our home sold in less than one month for 97% of our asking price!"

Karen worked tirelessly to help us find and then she succeeded in negotiating a fair and reasonable deal for our new home. We found working with Karen Guy a very positive and stress free experience. Karen kept in constant communication with us and we always felt that we were aware of all matters pertaining to our real estate transactions. Whether buying or selling, we were very confident of Karen Guy’s abilities as our REALTOR®.

We just wanted to thank you for all your hard work and efforts regarding selling our house in Kelowna. We are grateful for all the extra things you did and are glad that you knocked on our door in the spring. You went above and beyond taking care of many extra tasks pulling weeds, being there for shutting down the irrigation, you were there for the mover's and so much more. You were very professional and extremely personable at all times. We highly recommend Karen Guy to all other individuals who are seeking a competent REALTOR®.

You are really a very special person and I could sense that when we first met. Your sincerity, kindness and generosity are appreciated greatly.

I wish you all the success and happiness for you and your loved ones.

Sincere Thanks,

N. & B. Murray
