Born and raised in San Antonio, Karen received her bachelor’s degree from the University of North Texas. Soon after graduating, she began her life long career in customer service, first as a flight attendant with American Airlines. Her flexible schedule allowed her to also help out in a friend’s real estate office, where her interest in this dynamic business was born! After having children and while working part-time, Karen achieved director status with a direct sales company, and later became a certified personal trainer and fitness instructor. In 2004 her family relocated to sunny San Diego and have called Carlsbad home ever since. Her sons are now 17 and 20, and they also have a wonderful German shepherd rescue named Trace.
There is no doubt that Karen is an outgoing “people person”, so it is not surprising that she has accumulated more than two decades of award-winning customer service in the airline, sales and fitness industries. Helping others achieve their goals has always been Karen’s goal and passion, and as a REALTOR®, that means giving 100% to assist a buyer or seller as seamlessly as possible through all steps of a transaction, resulting in a successful escrow closing.
With her children now young adults, Karen can fully devote her energy and efforts to her business and clients. She intends to do that through delivering the highest level of service possible while following the golden rule. With Karen’s knowledge, integrity, respect and care, her intent is to make every client a friend and to create lasting positive and professional relationships.
“Karen’s warmth is apparent to anyone that meets her and her customer service skills are superior. Her commitment to clients shows a dedication to developing relationships and a high standard of service, and we’re delighted that she has chosen to join our Carlsbad team,” says Brian Gooding, co-owner of Windermere Homes & Estates.
