As a second-generation real estate agent at Coldwell Banker Realty, Karen was introduced to the real estate industry from an early age. Watching her parents renovate homes and then sell them fascinated Karen. Attending open houses in Newton, Massachusetts with her mother was always an interesting process that she enjoyed experiencing.
With a Bachelor of Science in Communications from Northeastern University, she has worked in sales, finance, education, and event planning in Boston and in Manhattan. After leaving Wall Street to start a family, Karen missed working, especially using her strong business and interpersonal communication skills. When she realized the lack of events and programs in Putnam and Westchester Counties, she served as a volunteer on various committees focusing on event planning and outreach programs in local neighborhoods that grew into a successful business. Her warm and energetic personality combined with strategic business sense enabled her to engage and connect with various major companies and nonprofits as well as families who were looking for a guide on what was happening in their town.
Karen has lived in Ridgefield for the past several years and is a mother of three children. Karen has been an active volunteer in various charities in the community (and beyond) including the Annual Fund Captain at Ridgefield Academy, Division Director at SCOR (Soccer of Ridgefield) and the Gala Committee at Friends of Karen; a nonprofit with a mission to help families of children with life threatening illnesses. Karen is always looking for other ways to help and get her family involved.
Having moved during the pandemic, Karen understands the process of going through selling and purchasing a home. Although it can be quite exciting at times, the stress of decluttering, packing your belongings, choosing a home and other logistics can be very stressful on a person and on the entire family. She is a firm believer that you should enjoy the process and let your agent guide you utilizing her expertise. Making new memories in your new home is a very special time and Karen can't wait to find you your perfect home or assist you in getting your home sold!
