Add personality to your profile! Tell the community about yourself, your home, and your profession.

Hello community of buyers and sellers! Are you interested in buying, selling, investing or leasing? Every one of these is very unique in our current market and I can help you analyze your options and direct you to you desired goal. 

I am a realtor that specializes in the southside area for the city of Des Moines. I don't limit myself to just this area but if you need someone who knows the southside market, that is a part of this communtiy and be able to buy or sell successfully, I am your realtor.

I also specialize in helping distressed homeowners avoid foreclosure. If you know someone that is struggling to make their mortgage payment and wants to find other options besides foreclosure or deed in liue (voluntary foreclosure) I have the knowledge and resources available to close a successful shortsale transaction.

I enjoy working with first time homebuyers, sellers, investors and much more.... and I like to have fun doing it!  

Last but not least: I speak both English and Spanish fluently and working on my Laotian... just joking on this one. As an immigrant myself I know the importance of having someone that can be trusted and can bridge the gap between two cultures and still reach the goal of the American Dream and homeownership.

Let me know if I can help you with any of your needs regarding real estate. Hope to meet you soon.

      Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $200K in Bloomfield-Allen, Des Moines, IA.
      I along with my other siblings were born and raised in Southern California. Our parents originally came from Des Moines. Like many, after WW II work became scarce after the war, so my parents relocated to California were they raise a family. In the 1980's, after retirement, they returned to Des Moines. They purchased a primary home and a second investment home. This past year, because of my elderly parents poor health my brother and I stepped in to sell the properties. After doing a search on the web, reading reviews and making a call, I found Karla. We found Karla to be real gem. She made selling our homes almost effortless. She is very familiar with local contractors and services. Living in California, we relied on Karla for almost every aspect. She even brought my father soup, when his health was in decline. To make a long story short both houses sold in less than 45 days at and above what we had thought. Closing was also a breeze. Every step of the way Karla managed the process. I highly recommend Karla!  MoreLess
