Originally from Zimbabwe, Karen lived in several countries in Africa and attended boarding school in England. After living in London for a few years, she moved to South Florida where she attended college and began working as a paralegal by age 21. During her years at the law firm Karen played a key role in the growth of the practice and using her contacts and networking capabilities, later founded and operated an SEC EDGAR filing company as well as a real estate title insurance agency.
For nearly two decades, Karen has capitalized on opportunity in the real estate market, personally with her own multi-state investments, and professionally by helping clients achieve their goals. She's always had a special knack for identifying booms in neighborhoods, spotting potential in a home, and making deals happen.
As one client put it, "The thought of apartment hunting in New York City is slightly akin to searching for the Holy Grail!" With her extensive personal and professional knowledge of financing and legal considerations and the emotional commitment involved in a real estate transaction, Karen successfully navigates through every aspect of a real estate transaction. Creative and tenacious Karen becomes a trusted advisor and a great supporter of her clients’ unique needs. Her clients truly appreciate the integrity, care and professionalism Karen brings to her work - qualities that have earned her exceptional client loyalty over her years in the business.
"As one of the world’s top cities, NYC real estate offers exceptional opportunity," she feels. "Whether you're new to the market or have bought and sold several properties, my job is to guide you through that next important step and help you make sound choices. Proper planning, preparation and execution is essential.”
Outside of work, Karen serves on the board of her condominium and manages her real estate investments. For fun she enjoys traveling, entertaining, and active memberships in the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, the Bedford Barrow Commerce Block Association, and the Porsche Club of America.
