Meet Karen

As a native of the California coast and a successful licensed Real Estate Agent for almost 20 years, helping clients sell and buy homes from the ocean to the hills is both my profession and my passion. Since my first sale of a single-family residence in San Elijo Hills in 2004, I’ve developed a thriving practice based on helping people achieve their dreams, supporting them through transition, and forming genuine, long-term relationships.
My practice revolves around my clients – I provide enthusiastic, personalized service with proactive representation throughout each transaction and beyond. Clients share their positive experiences with family and friends, and I’ve established a successful and award-winning business almost exclusively through referrals and repeat clients. I am honored to have been named a San Diego Five Star Real Estate Agent Award winner nine years in a row.

I offer comprehensive real estate services from home buying and selling to consulting and project management. The California real estate market is constantly evolving, and clients count on my extensive knowledge of market conditions and past, present, and future trends to help them make smart decisions.
As an Accredited Staging Professional (ASP), I offer complete professional staging with an eye for creating inviting, engaging spaces that make listings stand out and captivate buyers’ interest.

I am also a Certified Short Sale® and Foreclosure Resource Specialist® with an in-depth understanding of distressed sales and investor opportunities.

Before launching my real estate career, I graduated college with a degree in marketing and spent several years in advertising. This early training and ongoing experience have proven valuable in creating compelling, attention-getting listings and knowing the best ways to market them to every demographic.

When I’m not working with clients, I’m usually spending time with my family, including two sons at UCSB and a daughter at San Marcos High School. I served on the San Elijo Elementary School (SEES) Parent Teacher Organization for more than 10 years and have been active in the school community throughout my real estate career. I also enjoy surfing, yoga, and hiking our beautiful hills and trails.
