Karen’s life has been a series of big, brave moves. Ask what lessons those moves taught her, and she will tell you that moving is scary, people are wonderful, and you should never make assumptions.
Born in Los Angeles, CA Karen moved to New York a year after graduating from Indiana University, Bloomington where she studied marketing and advertising at the Kelly School of Business and the Ernie Pyle Journalism school. After working for Disney Consumer products in Burbank, CA she moved to New York to work for Nickelodeon Consumer Products. As luck would have it, right before the recession of 2008 she left her stable job and got her real estate license. After practicing in New York for 13 years a life re-evaluation, and the global pandemic, led her to take to the road in 2020 for an aimless cross-country trip to see the country and find her new home. 11,000 miles later she found herself drawn to Park City, UT.
According to Karen, who’s tag line is “leaving no STONE unturned,” she says “there’s always a ‘hurdle’ to overcome. After practicing in one of the most competitive and challenging markets in the world, my experience allows to identify small issues before they become unfixable problems.” The home sale or purchase process can be intimidating. Buyer clients may need help with financing; sellers may struggle with getting their home ready to put on the market.
As a Realtor, I never forget that real estate is not about wheeling and dealing -- it’s about home, community, and helping my clients meet their personal and financial goals.
As an agent at Sotheby’s International Realty, a global institution, I offer the kind of deep roots and market expertise throughout Park City that you need to find your ideal home or market your current property. My vast network of agents around the world also allows me to connect my clients to other markets, regardless of the need and price point.
As a top producing agent in New York City, with experience in rentals, sales and new development, I bring a higher level of expertise and experience to your real estate purchase or sale.
As a homeowner, investor, and landlord representative, I offer the personal service that only comes from working with an agent who’s actually in the market and who understands and shares your goals.
In her free time, Karen enjoys exploring Park City and is working to become a local, including learning how to properly carry her skis. She is the former President of the Metro New York Chapter of the Indiana University Alumni Association and former President of Chapter 24 of Business Network International, of which she was a member for 11 years. Before moving to Park City she regularly performed comedy in Manhattan with other comedians like Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Gaffigan and George Wallace.
