Karen began her career in real estate in 1990. She grew up in Chicago proper and has spent the last 39 years living on the North Shore. She speaks both German and Spanish in addition to English, which has served her well over the years. Karen attended Loyola University and DePaul University, and did her research at the University of Chicago. Her dedication to her studies in Research and Psychology has awarded her with many honors from the university, and the knowledge she gained has lent itself to her career, marketing, and data analysis. Researching the properties and market conditions she is involved in is her key to performing the best transaction.
Karen’s previous experience working on the trading floor of CBOT (Chicago Board of Trade) and CBOE (Chicago Board Options Exchange) has helped her in the act of price discovery, as well as the knowledge of how markets work. Her prior experience serving as a public servant in Lincolnshire as Village Trustee has given her insight on how local governments work and any upcoming plans involving multiple communities, as well as negotiation strategies. She does not take the honor of holding people's trust in her lightly. She represents her clients as she represents the residents she was elected by.
Karen is married with 3 kids and lives in suburban Chicago. She is a self-professed artist, gardener, and writer, and prides herself on being creative. Her children have taught her the need for patience and attention that she passes onto her clients. Listening and time are gifts she gives freely to ensure successful transactions as well as future referrals.
Karen is consistently ranked as a top real estate agent in suburban Chicago. She attributes her success to her detail-minded nature and 27 years of experience in every type of market. Give Karen a call to find the home of your dreams today!
