I want to thank you for helping with the recent sale of our family homestead in Short Hills. You were very sensitive to some family 'challenges' & realized that having open houses would be too stressful. Despite that, you were able to find a buyer very quickly for a very good price, & get the closing done in short order. It hurts to lose the family house, but you both helped to ease the pain & to do a mitzvah. I highly recommend your wonderful, thoughtful, efficient, thorough, & professional service.
Dear Karen and Dan, I am finally settling into my new home and have a chance to drop you a note to say thanks for closing the deal. I truly had my doubts but it all worked out and I appreciate your efforts on my behalf to get it done! All the best to you and yours as we approach the holiday season! Sincerely, Leslie McCafferty P.S. Thanks for your very generous house-warming gift!
Thank you so much for the dinner certificate to Roots - after all this, what we will need is a night out, so it is very much appreciated! We can not express how much gratitude we have for all your help in finding our first home. We are very happy with our experience, despite the hurricane! Your professionalism and responsiveness is commendable, and we will recommend your services to anyone who is searching for a home in the area. See you around the neighborhood! Best regards, Lillian and Ed Yu

From LinkedIn: “If you need a Realtor who is Everything in One.....then Karen is for you. But she is far more than just a wonderful Leader of a Real Estate Company. Her skills go way beyond helping you with a real estate transaction. Karen has a tremendous heart, fabulous integrity, great passion to help others, and knows how to get the job done. She never says a particular task is impossible, and has an uncanny ability to clear obstacles in the way. But by the same token, she will always be candid, disagree when she believes in something, and give you her honest opinion. I was very thankful that Karen could help my Parents sell their home in a tough economic market. There is not enough I can say the way she handles herself from the beginning to the end of the transaction. Most importantly, Karen is someone you enjoy doing business with, and you know that she truly wants to do the right thing for your Family (not just a person looking to make a buck). You owe it to yourself to speak with Karen....then you make the decision yourself. Believe me, you'll have a smile on your face after you've experienced the Karen Difference!!!!!” April 5, 2011
Dear Karen and Dan, Thank you for all your hard work and real estate professionalism, skill and knowledge in successfully selling our home. I can't even begin to tell you how grateful that we are that we were able to sell fairly quickly adn with relatively little drama. Hal and I both feel that we chose wisely and well when we hired you and Towne Realty Group. Your marketing skills are outstanding! We are most appreciative of all that you did for us in a very difficult market. Please don't hesitate to use our name & number if you need a reference or feedback. Many, many thanks, Mary Ann Moore
Dear Karen, There are not enough words to thank you for all you've done for us. Thank you so much for everything from your advice to your expert negotiations and follow through. We could never have imagined the results that you delivered. You are indeed a very special lady! Fondly, Bee and John Mullin
Now that we have settled into our new home, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your hard work in making it happen. From finding the right house for us and selling our existing home, you were there for us throughout the entire process. From our experience, your deep knowledge of the local real estate market, highest standard of professionalism, and consistent level of personal attention every step of the way distinquish you and your team at Towne Realty. We were comforted throughout the buying process because you always kept us informed and were personally available whenever needed with sound advice. With the sale of our home, it was thanks to your advice and your extensive marketing that we were able to complete the sale process quickly and successfully-no small task in today's challenging real estate market. You exceeded our expectations as our realtors and above all we feel that we have gained two fiends in the community in you and Daniel.
I have been working with Karen for more than twenty years and have the utmost respect for her and her organization. We rely on Karen's expert market knowledge and often turn to her for advice. Karen is truly a "Professional" with integrity, creativity, enthusiasm, honesty, respect and knowledge. We admire her successes as well as devotion to her family. It is without doubt that Karen will remain a integral part of our team. Popolillo Properties, LLC” June 2, 2009
July 10, 2009 Hi Karen and Dan, Now that its all over and I'm in my new apartment (and exhausted), I want to take the time and thank you very, very much for all your hard work in selling my house. I know it was tough at times, even ugly given the circumstances, but you stayed in there with me and you supported me in getting me what I needed in order to agree to the terms of the sale. I realize you did me a favor in working for a lower commission than you normally get, and I appreciate that greatly also. Thanks again for a great job. Sincerely, Michael
"If you are in the Millburn-Short Hills-Summit area and you want to buy or sell a house, you are leaving money on the table and not maximizing your value if you do not use Karen Bigos.

She is an expert marketer, conscientious and follows up and is a delight to work with in every regard.

I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with how Towne Realty Group handled the sale of my home in Short Hills. Several of the most impressive areas included your overall enthusiasm, sensitivity, consulting advice and your continued excellent communication and follow-up. Your assistance with how I needed to prepare my home for sale was right on target and made it very easy for me to focus my efforts towards the most effective tasks that would make my home even more saleable. Lastly, your promotional campaign and marketing materials, which included print and on-line advertising, beautiful color brochures, floor layouts, well planned and advertised open houses, etc., exceeded all of my expectations. As president of a firm that consults in the area of improving the “customer experience” for Fortune 100 clients, I can professionally inform you that from the customer’s perspective, your team has the talent, personality, and expertise to know how to “make the deal” with total professionalism and fantastic service.
After having been given the responsibility of selling my parents home in Millburn, the home I grew up in, I decided to call Karen Eastman Bigos at Towne Realty Group. I knew she had a track record of success and had recently read about her new agency. My parents were local retailers and I’ve always believed that one is most likely to get the best service and results from a local business as opposed to a conglomerate. Karen and her partner Daniel Cannizzo met me at the house. My original intention was to interview several realtors but after a short period of time with them I realized there was no reason to meet with anyone else. It didn’t take me long to see why they were so successful. I felt at ease with them. They were both raised in Millburn Township, were the children of local business proprietors, and obviously knew everything there was to know about Millburn Township. I had a chance to see how they market their listings and was thoroughly impressed. As a result of their marketing prowess, we were fortunate enough to have offers quickly. Karen reviewed each of them with me and guided me through the entire process. Karen and Dan were always available if I had questions or concerns. They also guided me through the process of making sure that everything was in order to complete the transaction. They were patient, sincere, and knowledgeable. Let’s get to the point. If you are selling a house in Millburn Township, or you are looking to live there, don’t call anyone else. Towne Realty will get you the results you are looking for!
"We cannot praise Karen enough for her intelligence, honesty, reliability, and ability to handle what was a very emotional and trying time for us. As senior citizens who had been in our home for 28 years, making the move to a condo was very stressful. You are a remarkable woman whose keen judgement and advice we followed and respected in both transactions. We have never met anyone who works as hard and who was available to us at all hours of the day, any day of the week. Even our lawyer commented to us that in the many years of his dealing with Realtors, he counts you as one of the very few whom he admired. Working with you was truly a pleasure."
I cannot begin to thank you enough for the excellent service which you provided to my mom pertaining to the sale of her home at 35 Sparta Road in Short Hills. Your expert and professional attitude was pervasive throughout the transaction, and you made it easy and natural for her to move from a home where she spent thirty five years. You were always available to help her in any way that facilitated the transaction, and offered an excellent sale price and expeditious closing. I thank you again and look forward to doing business with you in the future
