I can honestly say after 20 years as a real estate agent, I love connecting with people and helping them in any way they need. A Los Angeles native, I know the city well, and understand the subtleties that differentiate the various neighborhoods.
I chose real estate when after many years in retail sales, I decided that if I could sell something small like lipstick, then I could sell something larger, like a home. Clients have found it easy to work with me as my experience, knowledge of the market and energetic attitude has garnered them the results they desire.
I pride myself on my ability to work with any personality type, and have the skill set to guide you through the process, I truly love the Zillow review where the client said it was fun, seamless and a pleasurable experience!
That is what my brand is all about! Creating a positive memory during what can be an emotional and stressful time letting go of the life you had. Whether selling a property, or purchasing your first condo, home, investment or mansion! I find true satisfaction in the joy that my clients feel when escrow closes, and I can hand the keys over to their new home!
Formerly part of one of the largest teams at Sotheby's International Realty in West Hollywood, I was able to incorporate my previous experience in retail sales, marketing and hair salon management into a successful enterprise. My background allows me to connect with my diverse clientele on many levels. I truly enjoy creating long lasting relationships while helping them determine the best fit - be it an individual, couple or family, hence why my clients trust and refer me to their colleagues, friends and family.
Serving Los Angeles and Orange County have a lot to offer, and I am looking forward to speaking to you!

"Where to begin... I bought my house in 2010. I was a first time buyer with not a whole lot of money put away for down payment but great credit. Karen was supportive every step of the way and I will say, I know she deals in some VERY upscale properties, but I never ever felt that my house hunt was less important to her. I got a great deal on my house in South LA and it has nearly tripled in value since then. Karen is energetic, personable, and I I felt really looked out for me during the process. She has tons of resources to recommend should a buyer need them, plumbers, inspector, flooring installers. She went above and beyond seeing that my homes foundation was taken care of, actually showed up on site to make sure the workers were doing their job! I now think of her as a friend, and will definitely call on her again when I'm ready to buy more property." - Bajni Turpin
"Karen was a pleasure to work with. Very knowledgable across the board. She knew how to handle my detail oriented, specific personality. She was able to exceptionally navigate through negotiations and we closed on my house in 60 days. From listing to close took 60 days. I actually loved working with the Aaron Kirman Compass group overall- it seems as though they have a teamwork environment and I was very pleased with all who participated in my open houses and behind the scenes office tasks. So glad I had a pleasant experience this go around. Thank you to all, especially Karen." - Jennifer Gwasda
"Karen is incredible at working with specific needs and getting great options immediately. She knows the market. And is great at working with couples and individual tastes. And has such a positive energy! She makes house hunting fun! She is the best realtor I have worked with." - Juliette Lewis
"I absolutely loved working with Karen Sanchez while searching for my LA condo. She was patient, fun to house shop with and we chatted about all kinds of things as if we were good friends. I felt like I could trust her from the very beginning. She also recommended a wonderful lender named Ubaldo at RPM Mortgage whose team did everything in a quick manner in order to close on time. I highly recommend Karen - she's awesome!" - M Lee

She made the process of finding the perfect condo to purchase simply effortless between her fun, friendly, patient personality and amazing knowledge of the real estate market in Los Angeles.

If the time ever comes to sell and buy something else, Karen will get the listing AND help me find my next dream home! Karen TOTALLY ROCKS!!!" - Stacey Aswad
