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

My passion for real estate and 20 years' experience in sales and customer service makes being a Realtor the perfect fit. This really is my "dream job". Helping my clients find and buy their homes is so incredibly rewarding. Helping them sell and transition to a new home is just as rewarding.  First time home buyers and people new to the Northern Virginia area are my specialty clients. I love the area in which I live and look forward to helping others fall in love with it as well.

I am a mom of 3 and am very active within my community. I have first hand understanding of the stresses and pressures families experience to balance professional success and a high quality family life. Making the right real estate decisions can be one of those stresses and I recognize that as I lead my clients through the buying and selling  process. My personal experiences buying, selling and investing allows me to apply real life experience and valuable knowledge.

My real estate knowledge is broadened by experience gained through positions held in the insurance and mortgage industries. I hold a BS/BA degree from Longwood University  where I held various offices in my sorority and campus clubs. I have served as PTA president as well as other volunteer positions in my community. I am a licensed agent and member of the Northern Virginia Association of Realtors. I most recently obtained the designation of Accredited Staging Professional which has added a very valuable service to my business.  I have also completed the CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert) which allows me to assist those homeowners who have been affected by the down turn in our market.  Distressed property transactions require expert knowledge and training and this designation was specifically developed for that.

      07/10/2012 - user5500681
      Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2011.
      Karen and her Remax team did a wonderful job helping try to sell our house. She was professional, well informed about the market trends in our area, provided great colorful sales and marketing materials and staged our house so well we joked that we didn't want to move!

      She went out of her way to have multiple open houses and generated quite a bit of interest in our house. We ended up fielding several offers, but in the end our circumstances changed and we decided not to sell our home.

      We would highly recommend Karen and her dedicated team of Real Estate professionals, and plan to use her for our future Real Estate needs!

      Sold a home in 2012.
      Karen is an extremely hardworking, knowledgeable and all around amazing realtor. She went way above and beyond to cater to our needs, staging our house to sell (sold in 3 days) and get us the house we really, really wanted. Karen drove all over creation -Gainesville and Warrenton 3 times in one day from Fairfax in rush hour. It was not uncommon for me get emails from Karen at 11:30 pm. and receive a phone call update at 8:00 am. When we were unsure her advice was invaluable. When we finally found our perfect house she fought for us calling the other realtor and getting our offer on the table after being told it was too late! I truly felt our experience with Karen was one of a kind and I would not even think about using anyone else.  MoreLess
