As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.

"Karen sold us our home in Smith Mountain Lake, VA. She is the most professional real estate agent we have ever met. She responds to you quickly and is brilliant in her field. We have recommended her to our friends who have bought property and will not hesitate to recommend her in the future. Furthermore, I would not recommend using anyone other than her as your R.E. Agent. We give Karen an A++ ... Thank you so much Karen for making the purchase of our home here so pleasant! We are so happy! :)"

"Where do I begin? My husband and I were brand new to the area and looking for a unique property (large acreage and small home). From the beginning, Karen was so knowledgeable on the area, ALWAYS available and an excellent communicator, and truly always had our best interest at heart. We had some heartbreaks and frustration along the way with several properties, but Karen encouraged us and always fought for us when it came to negotiation and making sure we were getting the best deal possible. This woman is an ALL-STAR! We are one week away from closing on our dream home- WAY under budget and I know the only reason we got there was because we chose Karen as our realtor. I know she was working with multiple clients at once- but we always felt like we were a priority and that is special. Whether you are looking for a big home on a small lot, or a small home on a big lot, or any home in the area- consider working with Karen. It is clear she truly enjoys what she does. "

  -Sarah Booth, Client

"It has been our honor to have worked with Karen on three real estate transactions. Our association began with the sale of our investment property in Mariners Landing. The marketing of this property took place during a difficult financial period for real estate, but Karen kept a positive attitude, relied on her vast resources and got us a bona fide buyer who closed on the sale. In February 2017, we decided to sell our primary residence and again called Karen. She worked tirelessly, found us a qualified buyer, closed quickly and at the price we were looking for. As a result of this sale we again called on Karen to find our next and “forever” home on the lake and she came through for us again. We closed on our Island of Contentment property in January of this year. To say Karen is good at what she does is an understatement. She is the most honest professional I have worked with. She is hard working, has impeccable ethics and a knowledge of real estate second to none. "
