Mrs. Karamales was helpful, knowledgeable, and an overall amazing person to work with. We couldn't of asked for anyone better to help us buy our first home.

Exceptional service! Always available, willing and able to answer any and all questions. Made a difficult process much easier and more fluid than expected. Best possible service anyone could ask for especially selling a property from a remote location. Will reccommend to anyone looking to buy/sell in the Vernon parish area. Thanks so much. Pleasure working with ERA and Mrs. Vickie.

Vickie is a true professional! I have truly been around the world and she is one of the best. She lead me through the whole process , giving me guidance as well as listening to my opinions. You can not ask for a better representative.

For being our first time buying a home we were expecting to be very overwhelmed and stressed out, especially with our tight schedule. But Vickie was able to make the process so seamless and stress less we literally didn't have to worry about a thing. We were able to find a home in three days, and she got us closed by the end of the month! Which totally exceeded our expectations, since we heard it usually takes much longer than that. She was also very informative and dedicated, she would always call or email us as soon as she received information or documents about the home and made sure we understood what we were signing and she constantly kept us updated during the whole process. And if there was ever a glitch or issue that she could fix she would do so immediately and would notify us afterwards to keep us in the loop but also so we wouldn't have to worry about it. She did the same thing with our closing costs, they came back higher than projected so she called and took care of it before we ever had to worry about it. It was clear that she had our best interest at heart and she felt very genuine. Overall, we couldn't have been happier with our experience with Vickie, and we plan on working with her again when the time comes to sell our home. Originally she was referred to us by someone we knew and it's obvious why, so we reccommend her to anyone looking to buy!

Mrs. Vickie really sold us this home even though she was not our realtor. She showed us this home when we first moved to Leesville. She left a lasting impression on our family. We knew if we ever sold this home she would be our realtor. Mrs. Vickie is a hard worker and dedecated to her clients. Thank you!

Mrs. Vickie is a top notch real estate agent. I have had the pleasure of buying and selling a home with her, and she has made noth experience painless! She was able to answer any questions that I had and always kept me informed throughout the sale! I really can't thank her enough, and will definitely be seeing her again with any future real estate needs!
08/12/16
She got my house sold in a perfect timing. Thank you a bunch!

Best real Estate ever. We have bought and sold a home with Mrs. Vickie and have had a great experience with both!! She maintains an open line of communication and kept us in the loop throughout the process. We would definitely recommend Mrs. Vickie from any real estate needs.

Vickie was an amazing realtor to work with from start to finish. She made sure we understood the entire process and ensured we were informed about any changes or updates immediately. We felt confident that our home was in great hands and are incredibly happy we were able to work with her.

I can't say enough good things about Vickie! She is a truly good, good person. Honest, caring, truthful, ethical and very professional. She's extremely diligent in her work. Being your agent is not just a "job" to her. She will be totally honest if you're either buying or selling a house, because she wants you to be happy in the end. Vickie was referred to us as an agent by my best friend whose husband was retired military. Vickie sold my best friend's home in FIVE days. She sold my beauticians home in THREE! She's THAT good. We are a military family and Vickie was our agent when we bought our home and four years later when we had to sell. She was able to get us in our home *very* quickly and smoothly! When we sold our home, the very first day it was listed online we had an offer! In two and a half weeks we had eight showings, three offers and over 800 online views total on all websites our home was listed on! She made the selling process unbelievably easy! She took care of everything & her assistant was also wonderful! She will do her "homework" and give you all the market analysis for the area (she came to our home to see us & had all her analysis paperwork ready!) She also took great photos of our home! With all the stress of this military move, leaving our home for Vickie to close was the easiest part! She assured me several times she would take care of everything and she did! I miss my home so, so much and my friends there, but I can't sing Vickie's praises enough. I wouldn't have considered using another realtor. And when we move back, we'll have Vickie as our realtor again. You can trust her--she'll do a great job for you and your family.

We appreciate all of Vicki's help in selling us the home in 2008 and her helping us to sell the home just now. We highly recommend her.

Vicki Karamales defined the meaning of the phrase "Taking care of Soldiers and the members of their families. She is the type of realtor that will not "Rush to failure" in regards to assisting a family into a home that is suitable for that family. She did not require us to sign buyer agent agreement as other realtors will require. This ensured us the peace of mind that she is a qualified agent who allows her work ethics and dedication of being the BEST agent for a family speak for itself. She also provided us with excellent advice on the Dos and Don'ts of buying a home without pressuring us to make any decisions. We thank you and love you Mrs. K. The Mathis Family (Brian, Stephanie, Breyden, and Micah Mathis).

You have done a great job. You're very professional and knowledgeable about the market.

Mrs. Karamales assisted myself and my wife with the purchase of our first home. We worked with another company before her and we were scoffed at because of our age, race, and the fact that we didn't look like we could afford the homes we were looking at. Ms Vickie not only treated us with the utmost respect she showed us any home we wanted to see. She went way above and beyond to help us become home owners. I don't have enough characters to express how much she means to us. I feel as if we developed a life long friend in Ms Vickie. She is genuine, honest, compassionate, extremely intelligent and knowledgeable. I call her the "bulldog of realty." She constantly went to bat for us on multiple occasions. My wife and I thank God for her because without the anointing on her life we would have never been able to get our dream home. In short, SHE IS AWESOME.

Best Real Estate Agent in Leesville!!! After a ur of paying for two house mortgages and our house sitting for almost a year unsold listed with a previous agent. Ms. Vickie got is sold under six months. She is very knowledgeable in all aspects of the real estate business wether it's buying or selling or renting. The staff at Era are great as well.

I do not think words can express how much I truly appreciate and value Ms. Vickie, not only as our realtor but as a genuine person. Just prior to encountering Ms. Vickie, my husband and I had an uncomfortable experience with a different real estate agent with another company. This previous experience left us wanting to quit searching for our first home. Ms. Vickie is above and beyond what I expect from a real estate agent, she made us feel like family. Her personal values add to her professionalism and gave us strong confidence in working with her. She is always easily accessible and prepared for things that had not crossed our minds. When we contacted her with a question or a problem that she did not know the answer to, she contacted people who would know and provided us not only with an answer, but with possible solutions. Her attention to detail was more than we anticipated and she was every bit of an advocate for us with both the selling agent and our mortgage company. Ms. Vickie impressed us with her wealth of knowledge about the area, homes, the business, and the process of buying a home. Her love for her job truly shines through in her dedication to helping us find/purchase our first home. She showed genuine excitement for our big and small victories during this process. She was always truthful with us and provided us with valuable insight and guidance. She made this experience feel less like a business transaction and more like she was caring for us. Her exceptional dedication has made this experience very enjoyable. I still cannot say enough wonderful things about her.

Vickie was extremely professional and efficient. She made our selling experience very easy!

One of the best realtors I have had the pleasure in working with. Specifically her punctuality and responsiveness was amazing. Was able to sell our house while only on the market for a month .
06/06/16
Hiring Vickie as our realtor was the best decision we made! She is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and reliable. We were so nervous about buying our first home and she made the entire process easy and enjoyable. When we had to sell our house a few years later for a military reassignment, Vickie handled everything expertly. She went above and beyond to ensure that our closing went as scheduled. We simply cannot recommend Vickie highly enough!
06/06/16
I was amazed at Vickie's local knowledge and her commitment to helping us achieve our goal of selling our house. She was professional in everything she did as well as letting you know she was working very hard to fulfill her contract with you.
06/06/16
We selected Vickie to list a house that we wanted to sell. She did a market survey for us and presented a number of similar homes for sell in our market with a comparison to our house for pricing. With her help we decided the price we wanted. Vickie made some suggestions about some minor repairs and upgrades that would enhance the property and we followed her suggestions. When the house was offered for sale it was shown on the first day and the buyer made an offer. After a little negotiation we agreed to a deal with the buyer and closed the deal about 30 days later. Vickie guided us thru the sales process and everything was completed easily. We highly reccomend Vickie and Sarver Real Estate.

We were lucky enough to find Vickie when we were PCSing from Korea to Fort Polk. We were first time home buyers who had to buy a house site un-seen (yes, our families thought we were crazy too). Vickie made this experience go so smoothly and even enjoyable. She worked with us on our time (14 hour time difference), ensured we were able to do all the paperwork digitally, provided us with more than enough pictures of the house, and always got back to us very quickly. We love our home and have no regrets. We wish Vickie could be our relator every time we PCS! Highly, highly, highly recommend Vickie.
06/04/16
Vickie was wonderful in showing us around during a whirlwind weekend when we were looking to purchase our home. Fortunately when it was time to sell our house Vickie agreed to list it. We had an immediate offer within the first week of it being on the market and had it sold well before the military PCSd us to our next assignment. Vickie is a superstar and we would recommend her to anyone to be their realtor if they are buying or selling a home!
