Highly professional, highly experienced service is what Karen’s clients have come to expect from her, and she meets or exceeds their goals every time.

Known for her excellent communication skills and sound advice, Karen prides herself on educating her clients thoroughly about market conditions, keeping them apprised of any changes as they occur. By the time a client is ready to buy or sell a home, they have been extensively prepared by Karen, who offers proven strategies for a smooth and successful transaction. When a contract is presented, she is a keen negotiator who oversees every detail with an impeccably trained eye.

She is also distinctively familiar with area neighborhoods, school systems, and local resources. Constantly putting her clients' interests above all else, Karen guides them in the right direction during the multi-faceted process of purchasing or selling a home. Karen also offers her seller clients professional staging and other resources that may be needed to prepare a home for the market.

Karen handles listings and sales in all price ranges with equal care and attention. She earned her broker's license in 2001, an achievement that shows true dedication to her real estate career. A long list of testimonials from satisfied buyers and sellers confirms Karen’s loyal following of repeat clients and referrals. Prior to joining the Oak Brook office of Coldwell Banker Realty in 2009, Karen was a top-producing agent in Morristown, New Jersey.

By representing only what is factual and refusing to sell properties merely for the sake of making a sale, Karen brings unmatched levels of integrity to all her business dealings.  With real estate DNA in her blood as a second-generation realtor, Karen truly understands the importance to put her clients' needs first and foremost and prides herself on getting to know each of her clients unique needs, then matching those needs with a perfect home. This personalized approach has been the cornerstone upon which she has built a successful real estate career.

Actively connected to the community through memberships to the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, The Morton Arboretum, The Elmhurst Art Museum, and the Oak Brook Historical Society, Karen is well-informed about the area beyond the real estate market. Karen has volunteered for charitable and non-profit organizations and enjoys organic gardening and supporting the local Farmers' Markets in the area.

Karen also serves on the Professional Standards and Ethics Committee for the Mainstreet Association of Realtors.

Additionally, Karen is a Certified Global Luxury Property Specialist, a Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA), and a Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES).
