Meet Karen

Home is where your story begins

I’m a Real Estate professional, who has travelled the world bringing stories to life. My family and I have lived in many different parts of the country, and I feel fortunate to call Charleston, South Carolina home.

For more than 25 years, I’ve written about people’s lives as an award-winning journalist, author and editor for some of the most trusted news outlets, such as Vanity Fair, Fox News and The Los Angeles Times. I was blessed to have met and interviewed world leaders and famous newsmakers and travelled to many other countries, which fueled my appreciation for architecture, historic homes and gorgeous places.

From early on, I was captivated with architecture, having the unique privilege of growing up at my great uncle’s Frank Lloyd Wright home, My Haven. The feelings that a beautifully-crafted home stirs resonates with me as it does with you.

After a successful journalism career, I was excited to start my real estate business in South Carolina’s beautiful Lowcountry, bringing that same passion to helping clients find their dream home. Like you and your family, I understand there’s an emotional connection to where we live. No wonder that Charleston was ranked as one of the world’s top cities – and the only American city on the list -- for five straight years by Travel + Leisure.

As a Charleston area Realtor®, I’m intricately aware of the economic developments and trends that shape the local real estate market. My communications background allows me to successfully solve problems, handle complex transactions, negotiate effectively and communicate efficiently.

The knowledge and experience I've gained buying and selling numerous homes around the country gives my buyers and sellers a strong competitive edge.

I also have a special understanding of the needs of first responders and those who serve our country including active-duty military personnel and veterans, as my husband is a retired law enforcement professional, and my father-in-law was a decorated war hero who is buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

Let me help you with your real estate needs, whether you’re looking to sell your home or find your place in paradise.

I look forward to serving you! Call me at 843-800-0791.
