Karena and Kelsi went above and beyond to find me the perfect home.

They have an encyclopedic knowledge of real estate laws in Mendocino County, as well as deep experience in the area. They were always willing to show me a property around my busy work schedule, and were tirelessly cheerful and upbeat. You won’t find better agents anywhere.

Karena and Kelsi did a wonderful job at helping me find exactly what I was looking for in a home.

Karena is very responsive and very patient. Every property I saw was in a timely fashion and she would go the extra mile to get any information from the sellers that I needed. I hope to work with you ladies again in the future.

I cannot recommend Karena and Kelsi, our real estate agents, highly enough!

We've had the pleasure of working with them in our quest to find the perfect property in rural Mendocino County, and their dedication and expertise have been truly exceptional. One of the unique challenges of our property search was the need for 4-wheel drive. Karena and Kelsi handled this challenge with ease, demonstrating their skill and determination to find us the right property, even taking us on several property tours in their trusty jeep. Their extensive knowledge of Mendocino County, built over a decade of experience in the area, was evident throughout our entire journey. Even though we ultimately decided to put our property search on hold after selling our house, Karena and Kelsi were incredibly understanding and supportive of our decision. They never pressured us or made us feel rushed, which we greatly appreciated. Their professionalism and patience were truly commendable. When the time comes for us to dive back into the real estate market, there is no doubt that Karena and Kelsi will be our first choice. Their dedication, expertise, and genuine care for their clients make them exceptional real estate agents. If you're looking for professionals who will go above and beyond to help you find your dream property in Mendocino County, Karena and Kelsi are the ones to call. Thank you both for your outstanding service!

Kelsi Ryan and Karena Jolley are an amazing team.

They did a ton of research for me, showed me homes that were exactly what I wanted, and had a huge amount of knowledge about Mendocino and Sonoma county, from building regulations to home construction to water/fire/earthquake issues. What was most impressive however was after I placed an offer on the house I ended up buying. They knew exactly which inspectors to bring in, found me contractors do fix some minor issues we found, and were totally on top of all the escrow, disclosures, and other paperwork. They made sure I knew exactly what I was buying and then made sure that the sale went through. I would totally, absolutely recommend working with them. They are amazing realtors.

Karena exceeded all of my expectations of dealing with a realtor.

She had originally dealt with my parents who both unfortunately passed away during our properties time on the market. She was incredibly helpful during the transition of ownership with my sibling, making the process fairly easy on our end. She was always an e-mail or phone call away and would always respond quickly. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a positive selling experience.

Trent

Went above and beyond to see our complex property sale.

Personal and professional, lots of local knowledge.

Don Paul

Karena and her partner are such amazing incredible people!

I’m so glad I trusted the 5 star reviews and I saw for myself why. She is so knowledgeable and informative even about small things that you wouldn’t think of. She takes your needs and really puts her skills to work on finding the perfect fit for you without wasting your time on things that wouldn’t work. She’s organized with the properties and always on time meeting. She went above and beyond to make sure we got into the home we wanted, and I know we wouldn’t have had such an amazing experience if we chose anyone else. If you’re looking for a realtor you can trust, count on and give you a positive experience, you’ve found her here 1000%

"Karena and Kelsi were excellent guides from the first call, showing us homes in the immense surrounding areas of Ukiah and Willits in Mendocino County. They were committed to showing us every home we were interested in, even the ones that we knew were questionable but we still wanted to visit ourselves. Ultimately, they helped us purchase the home of our dreams. We still feel like we're dreaming every day we wake up in this beautiful home with an incredible lot."

"Karena and Kelsi are an amazing team. Karena’s encyclopedic knowledge of the peculiarities of the legalities of the area and the process were invaluable in our particular purchase. But the responsiveness and commitment to our satisfaction of both Karena and Kelsi was astounding. I give them my highest possible recommendation."

"Making The Golden Girls and Will & Grace in Hollywood was great but the time came to find a more peaceful life & a new career. We asked a lot of Karena and her years of experience when we decided to make the change to a rural life in Mendocino but she didn’t let us down. She owns property of her own and understands the range of differences from city living to living off grid. She knows the intricate details of the famously controlling Mendocino County Planning and Building department and navigated our path well, protecting us from the drama of a miss step. In addition to being kind and smart, she became a team member working towards our goals and didn’t try to push us into any property. She is supportive, diligent, patient, insightful, and makes herself available, someone you want on your team. Having grown up in the area she has the network of resources you need. I can say the same things for her partner Kelsi. We had a great experience with them, found the property we hoped for and she managed to lock in the price we wanted, all a great success! Thanks Karena, you two are the best!Peter BeytDirector/Editor"

"Karena is a gift. She knows her market but never once pushed for a sale. I 100% recommend her to anyone looking for a property in the Clearlake, CA area. She's responsive but not overbearing; she goes with your flow. If I sent her an email or left her a voicemail she always replied within 48 hours."

"Kelsi and Karena guided us through the entire process. From the very first tiny fixer upper to the one we fell in love with! They made sure to communicate throughout the entire process and went above and beyond to ensure everything went well with the lender and listing agent. They worked with my schedule and made it easy for me to understand what was happening. I’m forever grateful!"
