Karen loves helping her clients navigate the sometimes-complicated world of real estate. Her background as an educator and high school administrator has helped her develop excellent organization, negotiation, and conflict management skills. These skills, along with her strong communication and relational abilities, allow her clients to feel heard and confident as they make decisions related to their real estate transaction. Her approach to real estate is one of education and service. It is important to Karen that each client feel as if they are her only client; relationships will always be valued over transactions. Think "coach" or "concierge" rather than "salesperson."
With all that said, she likes to win and will do what it takes to get the best deal possible for her clients! Karen has a strong commitment to personal and professional growth and aspires to be unparalleled in her real estate knowledge, skills, and passion to serve her clients. She believes in delivering more than is promised and finding unexpected ways to add value to those she serves. Before coming to CHR, she was awarded the Quality Service Award from her previous brokerage.
Karen is inspired by those who work to create community, bring people together and find adventure and joy in just living. She is grateful to those in her life who have pushed her to do what is hard, to dare to try new things, to seek adventure and to believe in herself. At the age of 52 she reinvented herself as an athlete and took up running - a few years later she completed a high-altitude trail marathon and is driven to stay active and pursue new experiences. In addition to being out on the trails, Karen enjoys skiing, paddle boarding, and snowshoeing. She loves travel, the ocean, a good book, the blue Colorado sky and sunflowers.
Karen believes strongly that the acquisition of real estate is a sound investment and an imortant component of building wealth and living an extraordinary life. She excels in matching clients to the home that will enhance their lifestyle and is at her happiest when she is doing just that!
