Market Readiness

Because first impressions count, Karen directs a detailed room-by-room editing and styling of each listing so that the home will “pop” to prospective buyers.


Working with the industry’s best home stagers, Karen creates beautiful environments that attract buyers, both online and in person.

Photos & Video

Karen hires the most talented architectural photographers and filmmakers so that each one of her listings shines in its brightest light.

Global Reach

Through strategic partnerships with Luxury Portfolio International, Waijule.com and Juwai.com, Karen gets her listings noticed by buyers from around the world.

Social Media

Karen makes sure that each listing is posted on Facebook and Instagram, after which she may boost posts or run listing ads targeted to specific audiences of potential buyers.


To keep a listing top-of-mind for buyers, Karen sends them away with beautiful, high-quality printed brochures that detail the property’s unique story and attributes.

Open Houses

Karen hosts open houses – for buyers and for brokers – so that every interested party will experience the unique features of each listing in person.


Understanding how meaningful her connections can be to a client’s success, Karen works hard to develop and maintain strong relationships with other brokers, talented contractors and key community members.


Karen works to make a positive difference in our community and enjoys a long history of supporting organizations such as Boys and Girls Club of Bellevue, LifeSpring, Habitat for Humanity and Hopelink.
