Before real estate I enjoyed two other careers. After receiving my B.A. degree at U.C.S.B. and a California Lifetime Teaching Credential at U.C. Berkeley, I moved into the La Morinda area and spent the next 16 years teaching fourth and fifth grades in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District. During this time, I was married and had a son, Sean. Driven by my passion to train and show Arabian horses, my husband and I purchased a horse ranch in Lafayette in 1981. For the next 23 years we developed a community oriented Equestrian Center where horse boarding and training along with riding lessons, summer day camps and birthday parties enriched the lives of families in the neighboring communities. Upon the sale of the ranch I continued on for one year, as the manager, to help the new owners learn the business. While transitioning into real estate I began investing in single family homes and multiple unit properties.

Ratings & Reviews

Karen Henson helped my parents find their California home earlier this year. We are extremely fortunate to have been able to work with Karen and be the beneficiaries of her expert realtor skills. Not only did she tirelessly scout out homes meeting all of the features that they were looking for, she was invaluable during the negotiation process. Everything went smoothly and like clockwork during a very tight closing schedule because of Karen's limitless energy, meticulousness, and sharp skills. On top of all of that, she is a warm, personable, and caring individual. My parents and I feel so fortunate to have met Karen. I highly recommend her for all of your real estate needs! <br/><br/>-Kim P. Lafayette, CA

Bought a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $425K in Walnut Creek, CA.

Working with Karen has been a true delight. She has provided exceptional customer service, consistently being available when needed, prompt to address questions or follow ups, and always pleasant, easy going and supportive.

Karen showed us over 2 dozen properties in a small time frame. She never put pressure on us to make decisions and showed the utmost patience with our many questions and our fluid desires around a house. I have sold and purchased many many houses over the years; Karen has been the best of all realtors. She truly cares for her clients and that shows in her every interaction.  More Less

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Walnut Creek, CA.

Karen is an old friend who has helped me buy and sell various properties in the East Bay over the last several years. She is scrupulously honest, and very quick to answer phone calls and find information for her clients. I recommended her to some old friends who were also pleased with her services. Karen is also a fun and friendly person which is nice when you are looking at numerous properties.  More Less
