Karen grew up in the Almaden Valley of San Jose, California where her passion for old homes, architecture, and design developed at an early age. She credits her experience, at the age of ten, touring the Winchester Mystery house, a historic landmark and architectural wonder located in San Jose, for setting her course toward a career in Real Estate. Her Intrigue for this old home, and the stories it holds, led to a fascination for all homes and a love for helping people find the perfect place to write the next chapter of their life.
Drawn to the Pacific Northwest, Karen has lived in Olympia for over 30 years where she and her husband Jim raised four children and now have three grandchildren. When not providing excellent customer service for her clients, you will find Karen in an antique shop searching for a new treasure, working in the garden, or ”whipping” up a new recipe in her kitchen.
