About Karen

Your trusted guide in Maryland real estate

Navigating the world of real estate is much like telling a story — each home, buyer, and seller holds a unique narrative, waiting to unfold in its own time and way. This philosophy has been the cornerstone of my approach over the past 25 years, especially here in the heart of Howard County, Maryland. My journey through the realms of insurance and legal industries, where I honed skills in resolving major litigation and claims, has deeply informed my understanding of the intricacies involved in buying and selling homes. This background has been invaluable, allowing me to anticipate challenges and navigate negotiations with finesse and empathy.


For over two decades, I've been a steadfast presence in Ellicott City's real estate scene, consistently recognized among the top producers in our local office. These accolades, while deeply appreciated, pale in comparison to the true reward of my career: the relationships built and the community ties strengthened. My commitment to service — both within the office and throughout our community — has been a driving force, earning me not only awards but, more importantly, the trust and respect of those I've had the privilege to work with.


In Howard County, a place I'm proud to call home, no two homes are alike, and similarly, no two clients share the same goals. This is why I prioritize listening, truly understanding each individual's needs and aspirations. Whether you're dreaming of a quaint suburban home to start a family or looking to sell a property that's been in your family for generations, my aim is to make your journey as smooth and fulfilling as possible.


With a blend of extensive local knowledge, a keen eye for detail, and a personal touch, I'm dedicated to crafting successful sales and meaningful experiences. Let's embark on this journey together, with your story and goals leading the way.
