The team as a whole was very informative, quick to respond and very well communicated. My realtor Matthew Forrester was amazing! While house searching he did great in finding what was best for me and my family, he listened to my needs and we found the perfect house that fit us. Any questions or concerns of mine were answered and helped me as a first time home buyer in making my decision. I am grateful for my realtor and all the extras he did in the process!
Adriana Garcia
Karabe is a great real estate representative, she helped me through the beginning and is still helping after the purchase. Karabe is Friendly, knowledgeable and very very helpful. I’m so glad that I got to meet and work with Karabe through my journey to find my forever home.
Melinda Torres
Very professional, kind, and knowledgeable. She helped us with remote FaceTime tours, helped keep us up on the schools and other area necessities. She made herself available to see the house we chose often. Would definitely use her again. Thanks Brenda!
Karabe worked very well with our limited time to view homes. I felt like she really went out of her way to accommodate all of our needs. She was very informative and allowed us to use multiple ways to communicate with it. Always had an answer for all of our questions. I highly recommend her, in fact I already did recommend her to some of my friends buying their first home like I did.
Very helpful/knowledgeable! The home buying process was smooth, and Karabe was always available. Highly recommend.

“Karabe, you truly are great. I do not take for granted the outstanding customer service you provide, and I am glad you are my TEAM! With you in the lead, I believe all will go smoothly. Love and blessings to you.”
Neva Blystone
Karabe was fantastic from start to finish. Always accessible for questions, very thorough in explaining everything. Our listing was very well written and well photographed. We closed 2 months after listing, so that really does say it all! Would absolutely recommend Karabe to friends.
The greatest factors for me was being able to relate to someone that not only knew the location(Site) very well, understood the community nuances, my family needs and being able to match them against the options available. Further, Karabe’s greatest asset is perhaps her genuine commitment towards meeting my needs and having the patience to entertain my many questions as I previously was not very familiar with the process and the location.
Allielleby Sookdeo
Very very helpful and eager to get answers when needed. Matthew without a doubt is awesome at what he does. Anyone who is looking for a new home, would be in great hands. Thank you Matthew, you are awesome man!
Karabe was very easy and pleasant to work with! We had no idea what we were doing going into this process and Karabe made it as smooth and as clear as we needed things to be! She was down to earth, very easy to talk to, and always made herself available, no matter the time of day or night! We never waited around for answers because she was so on top of things. Karabe truly loves her job and it showed in her eagerness and willingness to help and get things done for us ASAP. She is amazing, super …
We didn’t know anybody here in corpus and we chose her KB team to help us with the first home we looked at. After that first home we decided to let her look for other properties for us to view. We hit the jackpot with her team. Everything we experienced from then on was professional and prompt. We moved forward on a townhouse and her team was thorough at every turn. We are super happy owners and we couldn’t thank Karabe enough. If you are looking to buy on the island Karabe should be your f…

Karabe and her team are wonderful people to work with! Karabe helped us to both buy a house and to sell a house. She made both such a smooth and easy process. She answered all of our questions, kept us informed, and walked with us through the whole process from day one to closing. The KB team are trustworthy and reliable and we are grateful for them!
Brenda Garcia, this is your girl, she doesn’t settle for less. You tell her exactly what you want, she goes to war to get it. You would be crazy to use anyone else!
“Someone who takes the time to understand my needs. Where every showing is one step closer to the property I actually want and not me having to say, the same things over and over. Karabe took the time to work with me and customized a listing tailored to my requirements. She always stayed in touch and was never too aggressive to the point where she started to interrupt my work day or become a bother”.
Jeffrey Boodoo
We are absolutely grateful for all the hard work Karabe and her team put in on our behalf to ensure a smooth, happy, stress-free transition from the old to the new! They are the most amazing, determined, and hard-working group of people I’ve had the privilege to work with. I honestly would not change a thing we’ve experienced with them through this home buying journey because that would be changing the blessing the Lord gave us in them! Since we’ve worked with Karabe and her team, we have recomm…
Highly recommend the KB team. My wife called Karabe when we were looking into buying our first home and she was extremely professional and helpful. Absolutely love how she went above and beyond. If I ever decide to sell and buy again I will most definitely be calling the KB team.
Caleb Stevens
My husband and I were looking for a realtor find a house in a new city and it was a huge blessing to find Karabe Baltazar! She was a pleasure to work with every step of the way. Karabe is an incredibly professional and knowledgeable realtor. She seemed to work round the clock in order to find us a property we loved and throughout the process of buying the house. We have nothing but good things to say about her and would not hesitate to recommend her to others looking to buy or sell a house!
We officially closed on our first home Valentine’s Day 2017 and the realtor that helped us do so was Brenda Garcia! From start to finish it took us 3 months. We must have looked at over 20 homes and yet Brenda never once gave up on finding us the perfect home, no matter how small and specific our requirements were. We gave her a list of what we wanted, our budget, and our must haves in a home and she always delivered. But the best part to me was that over time after viewing so many homes and lis…
“Karabe Baltazar was a wonderful realtor. You can tell that she loves her job because she is very good at it. She researched property for us before we came and had everything organized and ready to go when we got there. Since we live out of town, she arranged her schedule to show us the properties at the time and date we requested. She took her time with us and really listened to our concerns. After our first day of showings, she did more research and got back to us in a timely manner. When we m…
Karabe and her team of real estate professionals will surprise you with their ability to sell even the most challenging property. Her kindness and professionalism are the hallmarks of the salesperson you can trust and offer a fair sale to all those involved. Even when my spouse and I needed to depart for our next home, Karabe kept up the pressure in the market in order to sell our property in an expeditious manner.
Norm Black
Karabe and her team are amazing! It was not our first time looking for a home. We had been with her before, but my husband and I chickened out years ago and Karabe was there to let us know that it was ok and if we were ever ready, she would be there. Years later we were ready and called Karabe to help us once again. She helped explain the process to us on how to buy a home, showed us homes during times we were available, helped explain the inspection process and closing process. She was there ev…
Karabe is great! My bride and I were transferred to the area, seeking an upscale rental property. Despite “rentals” not really part of Karabe’s job scope, she helped us. It was identified early on that it would be cheaper for us to purchase, Karabe quickly located a handful of likely houses for us to purchase. This resulted in my spouse and I purchasing a beautiful home in an ideal location and at a reasonable price. Because Karabe is flexible and willing to work with the changing demands of her…
Norm and Deb Black
My mother was looking to purchase a townhome and didn’t know where to start. We contacted Better Homes & Garden Real Estate and Karabe Baltazar immediately came to our rescue. She was simply AMAZING. She was Personable, Professional and Caring. She listed and responded to my mom’s wants and needs. She found her the perfect home in no time. She was always on top of things. When there were bumps on the road, Karabe was always there to smooth things out with no hesitation. My Mom and I are very tha…
Lydia & Sylvia
Andrew was great in helping us find our new home. He was there when we needed/wanted to go look at homes. Responds quickly to questions or concerns we had during this process. Didn’t make us feel pressured or in a rush to choose our home.
My husband and I spent many months looking at homes before we found Karabe. From the moment we met her we knew we wanted to work with her. The enthusiasm and passion she has for helping others find their dream home is awe inspiring. We quickly found the perfect home for us and Karabe helped us through the entire process. She went above and beyond by taking our photo at the front of our new home on the day we closed, and helping us to find a good a handyman for a few projects, etc. Sadly only a y…
Karabe was referred to us through our original realtor, who went on vacation. Greatest referral ever! Our main goal was to find a good investment, and this meant viewing dozens of homes in all different price ranges and neighborhoods. Karabe never hesitated to make herself available and stayed positive throughout, even when we were losing hope. You can tell from the get-go that Karabe loves her job, and you will find that she will bend over backwards to not only help you find the perfect home, b…
Someone I trust recommended Karabe to me and I’m so glad they did. I initially met with multiple agents and decided to go with Karabe based on her extensive research and enthusiasm to sell my home and make sure I was satisfied. She went above and beyond what I would have expected at each stage of the selling process, from talking me through each document to checking on my home as I had already to a new city. She got me a higher sales price than I was expecting and ensured I was comfortable with …
Sam Carroll
Karabe came highly recommended to us from our lender and we could not be happier! She and her team not only helped us sell our home super quick, but they found us a beautiful new home ?? The KB team is knowledgeable, professional, responsive, caring and motivated! She kept us informed and updated every step of the way, making us feel like we were her top priority. We won’t use anyone else!
Brenda and the KB team were excellent. From day one we felt like family. They were enjoyable to work with and always ready to answer any questions. I can’t say enough good things about this team. When I decide to upgrade Brenda and the KB team will be the ones I call.
If I was able to write down every single thing we loved about having Karabe as our Realtor, I could write an entire book!! So I am going to keep it short. Karabe was absolutely amazing to work with from the sell of our old home to the purchase of our new home. The amount of knowledge and professionalism Karabe displayed is simply out of this world!! She made sure we were informed every step of the way. If you are in the market to sell or buy, please save yourself the hassle and contact Karabe an…
Rene Zavala Jr
It’s without hesitation I recommend Karabe and her team. The Kb team was highly recommended thru family members, not knowing much about them, we decided to allow them to list our home. We were taken back by the level of expertise, knowledge, professionalism and talent behind the team. We are so pleased with their negotiating skills and level of customer service. At any given time we had questions or concerns , the staff was responsive and quite attentive. The whole office staff was on top of our…
M Carr
Thank you Karabe! Process of our house being sold was quick and smooth. She was there every step of the way! Can’t wait to have her help us find our forever home!! Every question answered and very helpful and knowledgeable on selling in today’s market!!
Karabe Baltazar helped us sell our house and really has your best interest at heart. She worked really hard in all aspect to make sure our house was sold. She was honest with everything going on with process and if we had questions she never hesitated to answer to the best to her knowledge. It was a blessing to have her by our side during this transition in our life. Thank you Karabe and team for all your hard work!!
Maria Saenz
We couldn’t have had a better team take care of us for our first time buying a house! Karabe was so attentive and answered any questions we had and gave recommendations when we weren’t sure what to do. She’s taken care of me and my two sisters! Couldn’t recommend anyone as completely amazing as this team!
Danielle Stevens
Karabe is by far one of the best agents that I have ever worked with. She took our situation and went above and beyond our expectations. She made us feel like family and I am sure we have gained our first friend in Corpus. She made the buying process very easy for us from afar and helped us with every step along the way. We cannot say enough great things about Karabe. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know buying a home in TX.
The best realtor ever. Karabe would be with you to the end and help you with what is need to close. We had a long pending on our loan, and Karabe had never gave up on us. We work together and found a solution and finally we close. Thank you for your help Karabe.
It is very rare that in this life you find a sales person or (realtor) who cares about you beyond making a sale. But karabe was meticulous, hard working, fun, thorough, and dedicated to finding me and my family the perfect home. She is the perfect of someone who does what they do because they love and it shows. If I were ever to buy or even sell my house I would not consider doing so without karabe by my side.
Stephen Bauer
Brenda is awesome. She found me just the right house and was extremely helpful all through the purchase process with getting everything set up I needed to do. I was buying from out-of-state and was able to complete everything without having to fly back and forth. The whole KB team is just top notch.
Matthew was tasked to help my mother buy her home. He was absolutely fantastic in showing her various homes and helping her decide the one was best for her. This was no easy task as my mother is very specific and being this was her first purchase, had a ton of questions. Matthew handled himself very professionally. My mother felt totally comfortable with him and after a few house showings began to trust him and his determination to find her the perfect home. My mother absolutely loves Matt! We a…
Joe Padilla
I am a new homeowner today because of my realtor, Karabe Baltazar! I had the best realtor! She put up with all my complaints and emotions. She did EVERYTHING possible to make me happy and make this purchase so smooth! If you need a realtor, I recommend her. Thank you Karabe!!
Debbie Davila
“Karabe was an amazing realtor. She always answered any questions I had when it came to shopping around. She had a lot of experience and I valued her input on the properties I saw. Karabe was down to earth, very outgoing and easily to get along with. It was like shopping around with a friend and that’s what I loved the most. I wasn’t just customer, she treated me like a true friend which made me trust her even more. I plan to use Karabe in the future if I ever decide to move or sell. I would rec…

The KB Team sold our house without us ever personally meeting any member of the team. I am active duty military stationed in CA. It was time to sell our Corpus house after using it as rental income for the past few years. The KB Team became our points of contact for getting the house ready for market from meeting contractors to arranging for yard care. Communication with the team was easy and they kept us informed. Once we got the house on the market we had an offer and were under contract in le…

Brenda is amazing! We were first time home buyers and would recommend her to anyone. She was very responsive, listened to us about our likes/dislikes, and helped us find a great home. We will definitely be using her again.
I love Karabe, She made me feel like I was her only customer even though I new I wasn’t. She was always so nice and patient with us. LOVE HER
Heather Watkins
True gentleman, he listened to what we wanted, presented us with multiple homes that not only got us what we wanted, but better than i thought i could find. A home to Fit all of my needs for ever single one of my kids. Never in my mind did i doubt i would find the home we needed with Andrew going above and beyond by our sides.
David Villarreal
So down to earth and eager to get your questions answered! Had an amazing first time buy experience because of him! He is so helpful throughout and after the process! We found our realtor for life!
Karabe Baltazar made our home buying experience (relatively) stress free. She handled EVERYTHING and answered all of our questions immediately. Throughout the process, it felt like we were her only clients because of the amount of attention she devoted to us. Oh yeah, we bought this house sight unseen and relied on Karabe to be our eyes in Corpus Christi. We could not have asked for a better experience and appreciate everything Karabe did for us. We will be recommending her to anyone in ne…
Marques Johnson
Karabe Baltazar was so helpful and patient with me and my home search, I will only refer to Karabe. She worked around my work schedule, kept me informed. This was my first home buy and I put all my trust in her and her team.
Lori Furr
Received a contract on my house in just a few days of being listed! Mr. Forrester was very professional, knowledgeable, and communicated through out the entire process. HIGHLY recommend him and the KB Team.
Mat Thamaravelil
Karabe is excellent. Used for both buying and selling my Texas home and she made the entire process seamless and explained things along the way. Would highly recommend
Mathew Kalapurayil
Being first time home purchasers we relied on Karabe for all and every bit of the information needed to secure the house. She was/is professional, informative, knowledgeable and a pleasant person to work with. We’re grateful and thankful for all the help Karabe gave us.
Smiley and Becca
We loved Karabe! She did a fantastic job of helping us locate the perfect home for us and made the transaction a breeze despite a difficult seller’s agent. We would highly recommend her and plan to contact her when we sell this one.
Leandra Grimm
Karabe provided top level service on all phases of our home purchase. She is highly professional and very knowledgable of the real estate markets. Her team concept works seamlessly and is very efficient. The KB Team is the best.
eg3 centerline
We could not be more pleased with the service we received. Karabe went above and beyond her job to make sure we got exactly what we asked for. She helped us for more than 6 months and not one time did she ever say she couldn’t meet us no matter how far the drive was. My wife and I had her driving from Mathis to Corpus sometimes 2-3 times a week just to show us a home we were interested in. Karabe is the reflection of hard work and customer service and it was our blessing to have been able to wor…
Robert and Jackie Rosenbaum
A Big thank you to Ashley who got us in our new home! Ashley was such a pleasure to work with; she was super encouraging, responsive, and patient during our home search. She goes above and beyond to get the job done, and she does it with genuine friendliness and kindness. We are so excited to be moving into our new home, and we appreciate all of her hard work during the process. You could not go wrong having the KB Team handle your next real estate transaction!  
Christy Robertson
I cannot speak highly enough about Matthew. He held our hand throughout our entire life to Corpus, and handled everything beautifully. He checked in with us and made us feel like family. He helped us find and buy a house without even seeing it in person. His dedication to us made our buying process seamless. He treated us with utmost care and many times dropped what he was doing to tend to our needs. Moving across the country with three children to a brand new city, in the middle of a pandemic c…
Ansley Martin
Brenda Garcia with the Remax KB Team does not settle, give her your marching orders and she goes to war to get exactly what you want. We couldn’t be happier. Sunday 10 pm and you have an idea, SHE RESPONDS. Unreal the exceptional service and care she puts in to making your dream come true. You would be insane to use anyone else.
Kevin and Judy Benton
Karabe was very knowledgeable and helpful. She was easy to get in contact with and always responded in a timely manner. We were able to easily communicate with and trust her during the entire process of purchasing our home.
Debbie Saenz
Karabe is the best realtor I’ve ever worked with. Hands down. She is professional, highly knowledgeable, detail oriented, hard working very organized. What a smooth transition her hard work provided my wife and I in our move. 10/10 highly recommended if you are looking for a realtor.
I am so glad we chose to work with Ms. Kimberly!  She exercised extreme patience with us and understood our goals and didn’t try to sell us something that would not have worked for us in the long run. Many, Many thanks.  She will certainly get our future recommendation!
Karabe and her team came through for us again! First she helped us sell our home VERY quickly and for a great price, then she and Brenda helped us find our newer, better home! I can’t say enough good things about these ladies, from first showing to closing they were constantly available and on top of things. Every concern was addressed promptly, negotiations went exceptionally well, post inspection issues were taken care of within the limitations imposed the tenant, and in the end we ended up wi…
From day one, Karabe provided us with all the information we needed for the home buying process. She made sure our questions were answered and our concerns were heard. It was a blessing to work with someone who has a passion in helping people find a place to call home.
Justine Martinez
Karabe earned the 5 stars that I have given her in every category. She is considerate, classy, and not only is she beautiful on the outside but also as a beautiful heart. And above all she was patient with me.
I was very stressed out about buying my first home. I had talked to a few realtors but didn’t know much about home buying. They didn’t take me very serious considering my age. Since the very first day that I started working with Karabe she was on top of things with no hesitation. We viewed a few homes and even helped me out decide what was and what wasn’t a good deal. She made the experience great and almost effortless. I highly recommend her to anyone that is in the business of purchasing…
We could not have asked for a better agent than Matt. He was tireless in his search for the perfect place for us—and he found it. If we had a question or concern at any time, he was always available and helpful. He has the perfect blend of expertise and personality that made the process so much more enjoyable. We feel that we have not only found a great realtor but also a new friend. We will surely recommend him and his team to others. Many thanks, Bill and Theresa
Bill and Theresa
Karabe helped my husband and me purchase our first home, and she made the experience awesome! nAnd as a first time home buyer, she walked me through the whole process, answered all of my questions, and responded quickly to any emails or texts I sent her. nShe was very professional, and knowledgeable about the real estate market; and very kind and sweet. nI felt like I was in good hands 🙂
Layne T
People like Andrew have made our home buying process so much better. He was easy to access and we could call or text him at anytime. If we saw a house we loved he quickly acted on it for us. We eventually got the home we had been looking for, and even all the way up to the closing process, Andrew was there for us. I would definitely recommend him and the KB team.
I can’t say enough good things about Karabe and her team. As a first time home buyer, I was very anxious and unfamiliar with this process. The KB team was there every step of the way to ease my mind. They are responsive, professional, and help guide you through the process with ease. Karabe’s level of expertise is unmatched! I was blown away by her level of knowledge and experience within this local market. Not only is she kind and professional, but she goes out of her way to make sure you a…
Danielle Odette Alarcon
Big thanks to Karabe Baltazar and her entire team for making this process quick and easy for Adriana L. Garza and I! Great offers… ahead of schedule closing… and an easy process throughout! What more could you ask for?
Chris Garza
Karabe and her team are fantastic! They work hard to help you through each step of the process. They are patient and happy to answer questions. They keep you posted along the way. We just bought a house with them and we couldn’t have ask for a nicer realtor.
