About Karen

Originally from the East Coast, I`ve been a resident of the Bay Area for the past 30 years and Marin County for 24 of those years. After graduating from the University of Colorado with a degree in psychology and art, I moved to San Francisco, where I owned and managed a successful small business. My own first-time home purchase as well as an eye for decorating kindled my interest in real estate.

I welcome the opportunity to discuss my methods and marketing plans that will make your real estate experience a positive, successful one. If you are a first-time home buyer or are new to the Bay Area, I will demystify the purchasing process. If you are listing a home for sale, I will help you to maximize your property value & prepare your home for market with professionals in staging, landscaping and many other services through my extensive referral network.

You`ll find me easy to work with, as I am communicative, creative, energetic, and work tirelessly to achieve my clients` goals. I am a hands-on agent and personally will oversee every detail of your transaction.

We selected Karen Neustadt as our overall real estate professional based on her broad experience and good judgment.  Initially we needed to sell our coop apartment in San Francisco and Karen preferred to defer to one of her colleagues more versed in complicated metropolitan sales such as these.  Throughout the sale phase we received dedicated support from Karen and she did not remove herself from this transaction although her activity would specifically be focused on our subsequent purchase in Marin County.  When we were ready to purchase in San Rafael Karen kept us abreast of new properties and kept us striving toward our goal.  We were definitely motivated by her enthusiasm persistence and creative suggestions. When we recently closed escrow on our amazing new home the property turned out to be one she had kept her eye on for over six months in case it came back on market having decided that it suited our needs.  We could not be more grateful to Karen for her expertise patience and generosity which coupled with her savvy in the field makes her one incredible professional!  -Carol M.
