About Me

Credit Check Link


Having 14+ years of real estate experience has allowed me to learn and adapt to a variety of market conditions, a necessary requirement when working with a Broker today. A wide range of issues can affect the outcome of a successful closing. I am extremely pro-active, which minimizes issues from occurring. Knowing that you have a skilled pro at the ready to address the unpredictable makes a world of difference. 

My expertise allows you to feel COMFORTABLE and SAFE throughout your entire buying or selling experience. CUSTOMER SERVICE is my #1 PRIORITY.

Working with buyers and sellers, and other agents comes easily and naturally for me. It must be because I love what I do. Using strong negotiating skills, I make sure you get the BEST PRICE and terms when selling, or JUST THE RIGHT HOME for the BEST DEAL when buying.

I maintain these certifications to best serve your needs:

  • CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert)
  • ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative)
  • SFR (Shore Sale & Foreclosure Resource)
  • Five Star Professional Award 2012,2013, 2014, 2015

A large part of my business is referral based and word-of-mouth, a testimony to the way I treat people… the way I want to be treated. I don't just "hear" my clients, I "listen". My attention to detail and honesty are core premises I bring to the table. I work endless hours to ensure that any deal is sealed in a satisfactory way for my client. Many clients have congratulated me for putting in so much effort on their behalf.

Personally, I travelled all over the world in my previous career as a flight attendant, have family I adore, and enjoy watching sports.

Serving Palatine, Arlington Heights, Mt. Prospect, Inverness, Barrington, Dundee, Algonquin and beyond in the Chicago area, my goal is not a satisfied client, my goal is an EXCEPTIONALLY satisfied client.  

Please think of me as your trusted advisor for your next home sale or purchase, I live up to my credo, “Karen Cares”!

Helped me buy home

Karen was our listing agent and also helped up find our new home. Overall, Karen did a great job! Our house sold fast! Which was awesome, but finding a home was a long process. (We just couldn't find anything that we loved) Karen was great through the whole thing! She never gave up on us as we went through each house. She knew what we were looking for and made sure to send us houses that were great contenders. Thank you Karen for your help through this whole process!!
