I have had a lot of “buying/selling” experiences over the past 38 years, but never like this one! It has been the best ever! Kara always kept me informed on ever y detail! Her advice from day one caused a smooth, quick sell. Her honesty and integrity is beyond compare.

Alex and I are SO HAPPY! Kara worked so hard with us for months on our long house hunt and when we finally found the place we fell in love with, she worked even harder to secure the deal, make sure everything went smoothly towards closing, and make us feel confident and informed throughout the whole process. What could have been a stressful time was filled with joy and excitement thanks to her knowledge, experience and positive attitude. Big thanks to Mr. Jim for sharing sage advice with us as well! Thank you both for helping make the transition from Los Angeles renters to Nashville homeowners! We couldn't be happier!!

My wife and I have purchased many homes over our lifetime and we recently bought a home in Middle Tennessee using The Laster Real Estate Team andcould not be more pleased with the level of personal service, knowledge, andservice we received from Jim Laster. Jim listened to what we wanted, asked questions to help us clarify our needs and proceeded to show us properties that were exactly in line with our needs and budget.

In very short order Jim found the perfect property. Even though we were living in another state across the country, Jim continued to be a huge asset after helping negotiate the purchase by lining up and attending all inspections required repairs etc., handling paperwork and keeping us fully informed at every turn.

Hopefully,we won’t need to sell or purchase another property anytime soon but when we do we’ll be using the Laster Realty Team.

Following the death of close family members, it was a challenging decision to place 2 homes on the market. Kara made the process calm, easy, and manageable. Her professionalism was impeccable, but her personality made the difference. Kara was there for us emotionally, physically, and mentally. Thank you Kara for helping us visualize the next chapter in our life. We look forward to working with you in the future.

After parting ways from the same real estate company I've used for 17 years, I was introduced to Kara Stokes who sold my house in 5 days! My closing is scheduled for July 5th and I received the closing paperwork today, July 1st! Not only did she sell my house in 5 days, it was 6K more than my previous real estate agency's best offer! After finishing summer school, I was heading to Nashville to get my house ready to sell, thanks to Kara I can now enjoy my summer! I highly recommend Jim Laster & Kara Laster Stokes Realty!

We could not be happier with Kara as she guided and advised us in our downsizing journey. She was patient in finding numerous listings and helped us narrow our choices. Kara found the perfect one-level condo for us. When Kara listed our house, it sold in 5 days and we had an offer for over the listing price.
We are grateful that Jim explained options to us when dealing with the contracts. We feel fortunate that Kara and Jim were with us as we went through our journey of downsizing, buying and selling.

~David and Suzanne Wilson


We had the best experience selling our home thanks to Kara!! We have since sent several people her way and they were equally impressed with how much she went above and beyond she goes for her clients even after the papers are signed.

~Jim & Jennifer Blye


When my wife and I started looking for a home, we had no idea what to expect. Luckily, we found Kara and everything fell into place. She made us feel comfortable. She was super patient and took care of everything. We will never use another realtor. We are proud to say that she and her family will forever be a part of our lives.

~Jason and Jessica Jackson


When we decided to move from out of state to Middle Tennessee, we knew we would need a realtor who had a good knowledge of the area and one we could trust.
We found such a realtor in Kara Laster Stokes. Kara worked tirelessly searching for property, sending us information, pictures and videos of properties we might be interested in. Her communication with us and her attention to detail were excellent. She really listened to us and made it her goal to find what we wanted and she was successful in finding it!
We are so grateful for her professionalism, expertise, hard work and integrity. It was a joy working with her and we highly recommend her!
~Tom and Sandra Ivey


Kara sold our house and helped us to find our dream home! Kara listened to all of our needs and was committed to us being successful. You will not find a more dedicated caring person to help you through the buying/ selling process!!

~Mike and Tabatha Brewer


We had an amazing experience with Kara! She went above and beyond to help us find the perfect house for our family! She never gave up, she pushed harder! We are so thankful for everything! If you are looking to buy or sell, this is the right place for you.

~Brittney and Chris Weese
