Karen Kern is a hands-on, detail oriented realtor providing concierge service to her clients. A home sale or purchase involves big decisions on financial, as well as emotional levels. Karen uses her experience to help her clients identify and then prioritize their needs and wants. She guides them to achieve their goals in a manner that makes financial sense for them and their families. Over a decade of success in real estate with many repeat happy clients and referrals is something she is very proud of.
Providing “over-the-top” value and service to clients are words she lives by. Karen is very responsive and attentive to her client’s needs. She is a huge believer in having a home be “stage ready” when the doors open for showings and she has a skilled decorator and stager that she provides as part of her service. Home buyers shop on the internet first, and the professional photography she provides is top notch, including videos and 3D tours. Both sellers and buyers are provided with written action plans, and Karen handles as many tasks as possible whether it be recommending and meeting contractors to turning on and off lights for showings. Of course, her signature chocolates at listings are always a big hit! Now in her 16th year in real estate, she is proud to be able to use 100% of her clients as references.
