Never in a million years did she think she’d stumble into the real estate industry, but you can’t always predict where or when you’ll discover what you’re meant to do in life.    Karen was taught at a young age that if you want something in life, you have to work hard for it.    As the years went by, Karen worked her way from Customer Service at Target to working in an Appraisers office, never wavering in her resolve to become the best version of herself with each career move.    Karen moved to Delaware in January of 1996. Shortly after that move her husband heard about a Real Estate class being offered. He called her to see if she still wanted to get back into Real Estate. You see she had started in Real Estate in Washington State and had put it down to move overseas and start their family. On the phone that day he had told her he had good news and bad news. The good news is there isa Real Estate class that meets on Monday and Wednesdays like you wanted. The bad news is you missed the orientation class and you start tonight! He signed her up and the rest is history.    As her career advanced, Karen found her stride working with Buyers and Sellers in Delaware listing residential homes, with the Military Member, and 1st time home buyers as a focus. Working in an appraiser’s office has garnished new insights to help her customers. She’s an expert in getting the best deal possible for her customers!
