As an agent who's an expert in the Niles-Edwardsburg area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. Not only have I been in business here I have lived in Niles for many years. I've raised my family here. I've been active in the Girls Scouts as a Leader and been an active band parent at the Niles High School. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information and knows about the entire Michiana through experience. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
 You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I have been helping buyer's with real estate needs in Indiana and Michigan for over 10 years.  I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home. Having been born and raised in South Bend and lived and worked in the Northern Indiana and South West Michigan area I know Michiana. 

Sell a Home                                                                                                                                                   When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close. Prior to real estate (10 years of experience) I spent 15 years in Advertising  (Radio and The South Bend Tribune) so I am familiar with marketing trends for our area.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics                                                                                                         Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

Sold a home in 2015 in Dailey, Cassopolis, MI 49031.

We were very pleased with the way Karin marketed and represented our property. We knew it would take a very specific buyer to purchase a 7 ac homestead with a 150 year old home. We had numerous offers prior to the one we accepted. She could have pushed us to take the first one at a lower price but was confident we could get a better offer if we waited a little longer. Not only did she get us a better offer but found the perfect buyer for our property. We had spent 5 years restoring this beautiful Victorian and the new buyers will care for it with the same love and respect we have for the property. We would recommend Karin and her team to anyone looking for property in the area.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Niles, MI.

Karin assisted us in finding our home. She is quick to arrange viewings and helped us overcome a variety of home-buying challenges. She was referred to us by a family member who worked with Karin to buy and then later sell their home as well.
