About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I am patient with my clients. I take time to understand their needs and earn their trust. My background in Finance and Architecture provide a unique set of skills few in Real Estate have. I work hard for my clients to make sure that they receive the best service, and the highest level of communication. We work together to achieve their goals of buying or selling a home.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love seeing my clients dreams become realities. Whether buying their first home, finding a new home, or selling their existing house, its an incredible journey that I enjoy experiencing with them.

    Karen is wonderful, she's very down to earth and great to work with. She helped us find the perfect house and we couldn't be happier!


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I first schedule a consultation. There we go over the process, talk about goals, determine needs, and determine if we are a good fit to work together.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes! I constantly attend classes, above and beyond required continuing education classes. I need to be up to date on any regulatory changes that can affect my industry and my clients.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I spent 17 years in Banking and Finance. I decided to find something new after working for 4 different banks in 6 years. After some soul searching, I chose to attend real estate pre-licensing classes. Haven't looked back.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Home buyers account for 60% of my business, home selling about 40%.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I go above and beyond for my clients to make sure they are satisfied with their transaction. In a recent transaction (I was representing the buyer), I made sure that repairs to a home were done properly. When finding out they weren't, I contacted a licensed contractor to quote the cost to fix it and then required the seller to pay to have it done properly.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Ask a lot of questions. Make sure they are a full time agent. Ask about their stats: How many homes have you sold? What are your average Days on Market? What is your service guarantee? Make sure they have a detailed plan to get your home sold or to find a home for you.
