Client Comments for Karla Sartin:

StorageTek, Manager of Product Quality

"Karla: a real team player who keeps the big picture. Deadlines or resistance do not detract her from the ultimate goal of doing what's right for the customer and the business. Sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees, but Karla is always good at taking things to the higher level and keeping the team focused on where we needed to go."

FNF Division 6 IT Manager - South Texas

“Karla Sartin served as Senior Editor to "Perceptions of Value -- Real Estate Appraisal Theory and Application", a real estate textbook I published in 1992 during my years as an author in the education industry. Karla was always improving on the concept of the project and the book. She worked long hours and provided invaluable guidance and support with the book’s flow, editorial and content. Over the span of a year, she remained focused on every facet on the acknowledgment of her desire to help others succeed...and a testament to her patience. Karla understands that genius is in the details, but her soft skills are such that she can adapt to any work environment with ease, finding the strengths of team members and converting those strengths into tangible benefits everyone can see. Karla's smart, hard working and has something fleeting in many industries today...Integrity. I recommend her for any endeavor she's wanting to partake.”
