Karen aka Karina by her friends, has been a licensed real estate broker for over 35 years and while the industry and markets have changed significantly over that period of time, she has maintained her focus in helping people finding homes that are not only an investment vehicle that provides shelter and enjoyment, but "seeking sanctuaries" that will feed peoples souls. Houses have always been a vehicle for her to express her passions in art, design, dance movement and living healthy lifestyles. Her experience straddles many facets of the industry including owning a home building company and interior design consulting, and running her own mortgage company for 15 years. Her varied experience and creativity in designing new homes has been acknowledged with many real estate industry awards including the coveted people's choice award. 

  As a useful tool in her portfolio of real estate skills, Karina  holds a certification  from the Golden Gate School of Feng  Shui in the classical eastern philosophy of  feng shui. She has also obtained her  Green Realtor designation. These two  persuasions of philosophy work hand in hand together, creating an abundant and more sustainable lifestyle. Whether you are "green" conscious, subscribe to the ancient art of feng shui, or just wanting to live a healthier lifestyle, Karina can help you find a home that supports these ideals.

Her knowledge of the local mountain markets in Colorado is vast as she has been a successful real estate broker and resident of this region for over 25 years.
