I felt compelled to write a review for Kara after recently purchasing our first home during the middle of the Coronavirus pandemic. My wife, Hailey, and I moved to Atlanta last year and have been staying in a family condo in Buckhead while we got settled. I was born and raised in Atlanta so while I am familiar with many areas and neighborhoods, a lot has changed in 10 years. Also, my background is in real estate, being a licensed Sales Person in the state of GA. With all that said, we could have never done it without Kara Woodall! What started out as a search for a rental house in Buckhead, quickly expanded into a search for a home and Kara was able to walk us through every step. From defining our search criteria to meeting with lenders, Kara was on top of it. She understood our budget and never seemed to mind our indecisiveness or constant changes. We looked all over Atlanta and Kara didn't miss a beat, knowing the best school districts and the pros/cons both OTP and ITP. She knew the neighborhoods that would be the right fit for us now, in a few years, and in the future when we want sell. Kara has an incredible network of agents and always knew about houses coming on the market days, weeks, and even months before they were officially listed. She would go above and beyond to get photos and videos of house so that we didn't have to waste time touring homes that would not work. When we toured together, Kara offered great insight on the area, the market, the house, and the price. She does her research and stays on top of all the listings and sales to know where a house should be priced and what a competitive offer should be. She was quick to point out things we could or may want to change and the modifications that may require more money or work than we wanted. Kara would also bring to our attention issues that could impact the resale value that we did not pick-up on. The best part of working with Kara was when it came time to put in an offer. We never felt pressured by Kara to put in an offer or offer more than we were comfortable with. She reassured us that we would find the right house. I've done a lot of real estate deals but Kara gave us specific guidance on how to make our offer more competitive in ways I would not have even considered. She knows how to win a deal! After we went under contract, Kara stayed on top of every detail. She hit every deadline, lining up inspections, survey, appraisals, and walk-throughs. She coordinated with our lender and setup the closing. She remained in constant contact with us throughout the process, even when the state was under a shelter-in-place. I will continue to refer all my friends, family, and even strangers to Kara. If/when it comes time to sell, Kara will be the listing agent.

Working with Kara was a great decision for our family. She made an otherwise complex and scary process simple and fun. She strikes a great balance between firmness in opinion and she does not hesitate to tell you the truth even if it’s not what you want to hear which helped to manage our expectations. Our partnership with Kara helped us to realize the right call was to walk away from a house under contract. She was instrumental in helping us to avoid a major mistake even though it was in her interest for us to purchase the home. I work for a large bank and anticipated working with them for lending purposes. By the time we secured a Pre qualification letter from them, Kara had facilitated a letter with a local banker and put in three offers on homes. She knows the local market well and moves faster than larger offices that aren’t as well versed. She is highly charming but will also fight fiercely for her clients needs. As a result she can propose stronger offers on accelerated timelines. This was what got us our house where we won against competing offers. She got our family in first before anyone else. I highly recommend Kara Woodall as a realtor and those who elect to pursue another option are missing out. As serious as her service is, she makes the process fun. I firmly believe we got a good deal on our home and would not have had as much success without Kara.
