    Karen was very professional and easy to work with. She did a great job.

    Karen was conscientious and hard working. Reorganizing the kitchen was a difficult job, but she handled it well. I am planning to hire her again in a couple days.

    Karen is very nice and responded immediately. However, I asked for additional ideas and paint colors for our house and never heard from her again. Did not finish the job.

    Karen has some good ideas and she is creative. I have issues with her integrity and Customer Care which I find lacking. Karen had her guy "Raoul" do my floors. This was her flooring guy she worked with for years. That is where the problems started. He was unlicensed and that ended up causing me headaches. I assumed since she said she was professional that she'd only send over licensed workers but not the case. Karen made him out to be special and above the rest but he wasn't. He just charged me a lot and laid it down improperly. He also didn't smooth the sub floor. He also left a lot of the work for me to do even though his prices were way above standard. He laid the floor with many of the exact tiles right next to each other leaving repeats all over the place. One section in my house six tiles are all next to each other creating a huge light area. I am upset because I paid top dollar for a floor to last maybe 20 years and now I have to live with ugly repeats. When I told Karen this she just deflected and ignored totally not caring about the results of her actions. This is her guy. Being unlicensed I cannot seek recourse with the contractors board. Karen put me in this situation yet she won't help out. Karen always said she was professional and would save you money. She isn't being profession and I actually paid MORE, much more using her. She didn't tell the truth to Home Advisor either. She said "I told Home Advisor he was licensed" I said "Okay Karen if he is licensed give me his contractors license and I'll take down my review" Silence. It was lie. It would have been so much wiser for her to simply say "I am sorry, I made a mistake" and try to make it up in some way. But no she is stubborn and totally absent when things go wrong.

    Karen is a breath of fresh air with great taste and design! She is professional as well as personable and has a beautiful sense of humor. Easy to work with and is quick with communicating and getting the job done. Mrs. Patterson will go above and beyond to make the design your own!

    Her creativity is beyond. Whatever you are looking for she can do. Used her for 10 years and 3 homes. Not only does she do every day but decorates for parties and holidays and renderings.

    HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information representations set forth in those profiles as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

    HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.
    To find more licensing information for your state, visit our Licensing Requirements page.

    Seal of Approval

    What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
    5. Sex Offender Search
      We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
    6. Bankruptcy Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
    7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
    8. Liens Search
      We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
    9. Identity Verification (SSN)
      HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
    10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
      We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
