What They’re Saying...
I have had the pleasure of working with Miss Kara Malkovich in search of a summer rental for my annual family vacation. This year we decided on Newport Rhode Island and Kara has been a wealth of knowledge from the location of the perfect home, to places we should frequent for dinners, shopping, entertainment, and excursions. Kara was also knowledgeable in locating a private chef for our dinner parties. Kara is sweet, helpful, and being raised in Newport, is familiar with many of the homeowners who rent the homes she features. I am extremely satisfied with Kara's expertise and professionalism that I will exclusively request for her whenever visiting Newport Rhode Island.Sincerely, Mauro Cecchetti
We were running out of time to find an apartment that would meet all of our needs, including a dog-friendly place for not one but two dogs. We had already contacted numerous real estate agents and were assured that they would get back to us as soon as possible. However, Kara was the only agent who actually called us back. Not only that, but she had managed to find us several attractive listings that met all of our specifications and were available for move-in immediately. We appreciate that Kara took the extra effort to work with us to find the perfect rental for us and our dogs.
I have bought a sold a number of properties in varied markets and the thing that struck me about Kara was her unbridled enthusiasm. Often real estate transactions can be more stressful then joyful, to say the least. Kara rides the waves like a champ with her very sunny, helpful disposition. It was a pleasure to work with her and we wish her all the best.
Kara is not only a "native" of Newport with her family very involved in the community for years but also a very knowledgable professional about the market and the history of each home we have viewed. Her service is beyond just looking at property - she is instrumental in helping source inspectors, contractors, and property management who are all as delightful as she is. If you are new to Newport and want the best opportunities for your new home, hire Kara! She is amazing!
Kara was our realty agent when we were looking for property in the Newport Area. She's a wonderful person and genuinely cared about finding me and my wife a home. I must admit we are not the easiest people to please but she always showed up with a smile and worked tirelessly on our behalf. When we found an ideal fit in Newport Kara tirelessly negotiated the price to within our budget and then got some key concessions post inspection. She is more than a real estate agent, she is your advocate and we trust her implicitly. And here's the best part..she can make you laugh and doesn't get you car sick when she's driving you around.
Kara is fantastic. After a colleague mentioned to Kara that I and my family would be moving to Newport in a few months, she quickly contacted me to find out my family situation and preferences in a home, then wasted no time in getting to work to find us the right place. She's direct and to the point, which I really like. She listens and keeps the details in mind, such as our need for an energy efficient, pet & child friendly home in a location that suits our needs. We found exactly that. I had inquired with a number of other realtors, but none were nearly as responsive and communicative as Kara. Plus, she's a native of the area and shared a lof of great tips to get familiar with the town. I appreciate the work she did for us and will definitely recommend Kara to others.
Kara is such a pleasure to work with. She is very professional and completely understands her market. She has a great understanding of how to facilitate a transaction and gets to know both buyer and sellers needs. Kara was so helpful in helping to make any moving parts of the transaction far easier to handle. She has a lovely spirit and friendly way that makes her just fantastic to be around. I can not say more good things about her.
We worked with Kara over a period of several months and would highly recommend her. Kara is a wonderful professional—extremely knowledgeable about the market, always willing to go the extra mile on behalf of her clients and an absolute pleasure to work with!
We met Kara a couple of years ago while looking at the possibility of a second home in the greater Newport RI areas. Our search for just the right home had to be put on hold for other reasons, but we would check in with Kara when a home listing of interest appeared on the market from time to time over the next 14 months. We always contacted Kara directly because she had the knowledge, experience, and business linkages that afforded information on properties beyond the standard offerings.
Needless to say, we had an instant connection to her style, personality, confidence and overall real-estate wherewithal. This proved extremely valuable as we negotiated a once in a lifetime purchase of a home we never dreamed possible. A dream that came true, through Kara’s superb guidance and reassurance every step of the way.
