"My husband and I originally saw Karen with respect to getting our finances in order as we felt like we weren't getting ahead. After talking with Karen in our FIRST meeting, she put us at ease saying that we were in the same boat as a lot of other folks our age, and even better than some! Karen kept the terms she used easy for us to understand and she was very thorough in making sure we understood exactly what she was saying. I don't say it if I don't mean it and I would highly recommend Karen Fenske."


"We paid off our mortgage! Thank you Karen for all your help."
