Karena's Biography :

Being a real estate broker is not just a title~ It's a passion beyond the title.  It's about utilizing my skills, knowledge and talents beyond just selling or listing a home. 

I take pride in what I do and enjoy the architecture of each and every home and the possibilies in every home. 

I am a mother of 5 children and a surrogate mother to baby number 6.  I have One girl and four boys. Not only have I raised 5 children with my oldest being 27 years old. 

I started real estate before the spiraling down market back in 2007...The struggle of the business then was not easy and there was a lot of sadness and heartache at that time.  Watching homeowners lose their homes was a really tough business to be in back then. Today I am so thankful to be able to watch the market flourish. It truly is a blessing to help people in need to sell their home in a different light. 

I am a very personable and  take such pride in my profession, I really strive to keep all lines of communication open fully...I hold my cleints hand throughout the entire  buying/selling process. 

My goal is to make this process as stress-free as possible. I know it is hard to believe that moving can be is not, but my goal is to take some of that stress away from my clients. 

I love working with first time home buyers ....making them new homeowners is the best rewarding feeling in the world! I  am also VA certified and enjoy working with Veterans~ Thank you for those that have served our country.

Having a passion and talent in interior design~ I have great visuals and can see a blank canvas with final finished product of the potentiality of a home.

I create a team with who I am working with such as lender, attorney and clients and my main focus is making my cleints happy in the end~

And that is just a little bit about me
