Karen is an amazing Real Estate Agent. She was so professional, organized, thorough and determined from start to the close of escrow. She was supportive and remained calm when we were so nervous. Karen totally knows what she's doing when in comes to effectively showing a home and will work with you when selling your home. She's fair and trustworthy and dependable. We are so glad we chose Karen to sell our property. Thanks again, Karen, we'll remember you always!
My husband and I met Karen Dolce 36 years ago when she helped us purchase our first house in Culver City. Over the years we have had several real estate transactions, and we have always employed Karen. We know that we can trust Karen to be there for us. She always is the ultimate professional, and has the most calm and reassuring presence. Even when we have had to move outside of the Culver City area we have had her help us as we know that she will be looking out for our best interest, and that is exactly what one needs when buying or selling property. We whole heartily recommend Karen Dolce for any real estate transactions!
Karen Dolce helped me buy a house in December, 2014. She was a delight to work with. She showed me lots of houses in the neighborhood I wanted and finally found me the perfect house. I got a great house at a very good price. I will recommend her to anyone who needs a Broker that cares.
Karen is very personable, professional, and was easy to work with. She communicated well with the buyer, in order to get the deal closed. She also provided us the info we needed to understand the process. I would rcommend Karen Dolce without hesitation.
Karen Dolce is truly a professional! Our home was positioned in a well populated area and the thought of selecting an agent among many was overwhelming. Someone suggested we contact Karen and from the initial point of speaking with her, we knew she was the right agent for us. Her calm demeanor and warm personality provided us reassurance of being fully represented.
From the initial point of listing, she provided us tips on home presentation and how to keep it appealing to potential buyers. She remained in constant contact through phone and email, which proved to us that she was a dedicated to her clients. Within the first week, she brought clients to our home and after about 10 days on the market, she came to us with numerous offers. Within two weeks, Karen had secured a buyer.
Karen's enthusiasm is spectacular and her representation of clients has been highly impressive. Without a doubt, I would not hesitate to contact her again for representation!
I have worked with Karen Dolce for over 25 years and with great confidence can say that if you want a Broker who is ethical, will look out for your best interest, has knowledge of the local area, solves issues with skill and closes on time she is the one to list and sell your home or find you the home of your dreams to purchase. I personally have been involved in the transfer of my own home where she sold it in 1 week well over asking price. Knowledge, experience, friendly, problem solving and good communication = "Success" which is Karen Dolce.
Selling our Culver City home of 25 years was a daunting and emotional rollercoaster, but Karen made the whole process run smoothly and we could always count on her for any and all of our needs. She always promptly responded when we called her, 24/7, and we ended up very happy with the selling price of our home. We have purchased and sold quite a few Culver City houses in the past, as investments, and have always gone with Dolce Realtors. No one knows the Culver City market better. It's a comforting feeling to know you can completely trust your Realtor is doing everything in their power for you!
Recently, Karen Dolce assisted me with two real estate transactions. On both, she demonstrated true professionalism which I believe is crucial. She was patient and responsive to all my questions. Her negotiation skills were right on point with the end result being wonderful. With that said, I would definitely recommend her for your real estate needs.
Hi Pat, Thank you so much for making my dream come true and for making this such a great experience !!! Life in the penthouse is beyond amazing and words are not an option in describing my bliss. Thanks Pat. Come by anytime you need a feel good moment or are in the neighborhood. The door is always open and life on the balcony is like nothing else!! xoxo all my appreciation and gratitude will never be said enough but is lifetime felt!
Need a real estate agent? Call Pat Norwine. She was the listing agent for the sale of my condo in Mar Vista. We had several problems and Pat, like a trooper, got us through them all. She always kept me up to date when she would show the unit and gave me feedback on what buyers liked and did not like about the unit. Pat went well beyond what I would have expected from an agent. I would recommend her to anyone that is selling or buying a property.
I am a firm believer in hiring good people and then placing your trust in them. Pat Norwine is one of those people that you can place your complete trust and she will not let you down. We used her as listing agent and she went far beyond our expectations in terms of helping to oversee and hiring contractors and repair persons. We sold our house in two days after listing on mls. I will always be indebted to Pat for her help. If you are thinking of buying or selling a house in the general LA area, talk to Pat and you will not be disappointed.
As a first time home buyer, I was quite intimidated by the whole process of searching, making an offer, entering and hoping to close escrow. There are a million and one t's to cross and i's to dot not to mention property inspections, loan approvals, home warranty plans before one can finally get the keys and breathe a sigh of relief. One of the best decisions I made was to use Pat Norwine as my realtor. Her professionalism, honesty, empathy, and thorough knowledge of the entire purchase process was a huge factor in helping me become a (happy) homeowner. She tirelessly suggested properties, acted as my advocate with the sellers realtor/escrow company/inspectors, you name it. Pat went above and beyond to make this happen for me and I cannot be more grateful. Not only do I now have a superb realtor to recommend, I have made a great friend in the process!
I bought a townhome in Ladera Heights in March 2012. Pat Norwine did not represent me, but instead represented the Seller. However, she went over and beyond the call of duty because she treated me also as though I were her client. She was courteous, helpful, always, repeat always available to answer the phone or to meet me at the property and allow me to inspect, measure, go to peer in the townhouse. One again - she wasn't my agent. I would recommend her to anyone who needs assistance in buying or selling property. Thanks, Pat - you must have a wonderful life - especially if it's based on your respect and treatment of yours. I'll keep your card in case I need it, or someone needs a referral.
I decided to work with Pat after looking through various yelp reviews and I'm very glad I did. As a first time homebuyer, I needed someone patient,knowledgeable, and caring enough to explain the home buying process for me, even if it meant explaining things multiple times. Most importantly, I needed someone that could represent my needs and talk to me truthfully, even it it meant telling me that I should pass on a property. Pat more than exceeded my expectations and helped me find my very first home! It was nice to work with someone that enjoys helping first time homebuyers. If you need someone that has your best interest in mind, I would strongly recommend Pat. I feel very fortunate that I found Pat through yelp and hope that my review helps you decide on your next Real Estate agent. Happy house hunting!
I have been searching for the perfect home for well over a year and half. Pat was terrific and patient throughout the search and offered suggestions and helped me "think of the box," I ended with a wonderful home in a great location. I can always count on Pat to give me her honest opinion and she did not waiver in her advice. She is also very organized and great with follow-up, and even helped me find the contractors to make the home repairs needed. I would recommend Pat, without hesitation. I have learned a lot during this this process and owe much of that knowledge to Pat. I'm glad hat Pat stuck with me and provided the much needed support for me.
Pat Norwine is a SUPERB real estate agent! I can't recommend her highly enough! I'm a novice at selling real estate. I needed to quickly sell a condo that my mother lived in, in order to help pay for her assisted-living expenses. I chose Pat and her business partner, TJ as my real estate agents. Following their expert advice, I spent just enough money to fix up the condo, and IT SOLD IN 6 DAYS AT ASKING PRICE! Pat stays on top of everything to the last detail. She's an expert at selling real estate in a congested market. I'd work with Pat and TJ again in heart beat.
We are so thrilled that we found Pat on Yelp! She moved mountains to find us a fantastic condo in Culver City and helped us close in less than 2 months! What happened was nothing short of a miracle given our price range and desired location. It would not have been possible without Pat's expertise and tenacity. She was a true partner to us during the whole, daunting process. We appreciated her patience and empathy for us as first-time California homeowners. She worked tirelessly to find us options but never pushed us to consider anything that wasn't the right fit. Pat was instrumental in keeping things moving forward and always took the time to explain and re-explain anything whenever we were freaking out or confused about all the details. While it should have been no surprise by the other 5-star Yelp reviews that we would receive exemplary service, Pat still managed to exceed our expectations for a real estate agent. We always felt like she had our best interests in mind. If you're in the market to buy a place (especially in Culver City) and you need a knowledgable, professional, sincere, no-nonsense yet compassionate agent who can anticipate your needs and guide you through every aspect of the purchasing process, then Patricia Norwine is your woman! We highly recommend her.
Pat and TJ sold my 90 year old mom's house of 28 years. Mom did not have any experience in real estate and was terrified of the process. Pat and TJ transformed the process for mom with their kindness and sensitivity. In terms of professionalism, ethics and expertise, they are unparalleled. Mom's house sold quickly and effortlessly. One of the strongest validation of an endorsement is to state "I trust these professionals to work with my mom." I thoroughly and wholeheartedly endorse their services.
As a first time purchaser, I didn't even really know where to start when it came to finding a real estate agent. I tried my luck with "cold calling" a few other agents, but they all seemed too busy for me. Luckily, I was given a referral to Pat Norwine by my mortgage consultant. I didn't know what to expect after being blown off by some many others, but Pat began by asking me what I wanted, the areas I was looking in and what things I could and couldn't live with and without (for example, would I be ok if someone had died in the place, or if carpet was ok.) Right away, Pat sent me selections that were within my constraints and my budget and I eagerly set out on my pursuit. Pat always followed up with me quickly, answered all of my "first-timer" questions and even sent me reassuring emails during the stressful times. When I found a place that was suitable, Pat quickly sprung into action, making the entire offer process easy and understandable, and most importantly, efficient-especially in a multiple offer situation. Even with the competitive market conditions, Pat helped me come up with a strategy that ensured a winning bid in a great neighborhood and within my budget. Thanks Pat!
