Karen entered real estate following a career in corporate communications training. For many years, Karen traveled across the West helping companies hone their negation, sales, and customer service skills.
Karen became a licensed real estate sales agent in 2010, and obtained her brokers license in 2014. Over the years, Karen has discovered great professional joy in helping families and individuals find their perfect home. For the past four years, Karen has been a part of NextHome as an agent and broker associate. With a longstanding appreciation for NextHome’s business philosophy, Karen was thrilled to have an opportunity to come into ownership and open her own brokerage.
“I just get more fired up about NextHome year after year and it just keeps getting better,” Karen said. “NextHome does not get stale. I am so energized by the fact that I get to share this with other agents now as a franchise owner.”
“NextHome Peaks to Prairie embraces a higher standard across all aspects of our business,” Karen said. “I want everyone to be excited about high standards, from the way we treat other agents and offices with professionalism and respect to how we present and market our listings. As a sales agent, I always bring in a stager and have professional photos taken for each of my listings. For me it’s not just about selling a listing, but setting a standard of excellence that people will recognize. When people see a listing from NextHome Peaks to Prairie, they will right away know that it’s NextHome.”
As her business grows, Karen remains passionate about serving with her local real estate association. Karen is the current Director for the Billings Association of REALTORS®. She also serves on the board’s education committee.
“Growing up, visiting the National Parks and living in Jackson Hole, eventually living in Montana was my dream,” Karen said. “I have been here for 40 years now and raised two wonderful children here. It always feels so good to fly into that airport in Billings and know that I am home.”
