“Lea is a founding partner of Sterling Properties, which was one of Roslyn’s top agencies when her team joined Daniel Gale Sotheby’s in 2001.  Lea’s contributions to Daniel Gale Sotheby’s over nearly 15 years of market share growth are significant. She will be working closely with Karen through the end of the year and will continue to be an important part of the Daniel Gale family.”

For the past two years, Karen Sharf has worked as an associate broker at Daniel Gale Sotheby’s Glen Head office.  During her varied 25 year career in real estate, Karen has both worked for real estate organizations and owned and managed two agencies in the Roslyn area. Glorious Homes was Karen’s first agency, which she built up over 6 years before selling to a larger agency that wanted a local presence.  Karen later opened Hunt Ashley Group, which concentrated on referrals and development projects. Both her agency and other real estate sales work have given her a diverse experience that includes land purchase, sub-divisions and home restoration.

An Old Brookville resident, Karen is a member of the Long Island Board of Realtors and National Association of Realtors.
