Karen was introduced to the real estate industry when she was a teenager in London, Ontario back in the 1980s when her stepfather invested in a number of properties by taking old buildings and converting them into student rentals. Karen worked in all aspects of the property management side of the business from purchases, renovations and rentals. Once the interest rates spiked, her stepfather sold those properties and she took a hiatus from real estate. 

Karen went to school and ended up in the Dental industry working as a Dental Hygienist for 15 years. She was reintroduced to the real estate industry by her employer, a Dental Entrepreneur, who was buying and selling dental offices and she would work closely with him on those deals.  

Today, Karen has vast experience in the real estate industry, including but not limited to: 

  • how to purchase property for your own needs
  • how to purchase property for rental income
  • how to complete renovations, building custom homes and purchasing property for investment. 
Her portfolio consists of mainly new builds, though she does have a couple of vacation properties in Florida and in Hollywood, California.

Real Estate is Karen’s passion and she enjoys the freedom of passive income, the leisure of travel and work at the same time, the creative side of financing deals and the creative design putting together a functional home for a family or a design for supplemental income. As the saying goes, when you find something you love to do, it no longer feels like work.
