"Why I Love What I Do"
"My interest and passion for real estate and architecture started at a young age. I remember going to the job site with my Dad, who was an independent builder in the Oakland hills for over 25 years. He would set me up with a hammer, nails and some scrap wood and let me 'help' build the house. I would love looking at the blueprints with my Dad, and he would try to explain to me how the foundation would be poured and where the stairs would go. I never quite understood it all, but it was wonderful to watch my Dad and his crew build something beautiful from the ground up." ~ Karyn.
Karyn has been a licensed Realtor since 2003. She has become a member of the International Diamond Society (Coldwell Banker), a prestigious award honoring the top producing Agents in the Bay Area, as well as earning a Bronze Award (Keller Williams Realty) in 2017 and 2018. Karyn is a proud Oakland native, and thoroughly enjoys working with her clients to help them achieve their real estate goals.
"I love real estate - period. I love the relationships with my clients. I love the exploration of different architecture. I love good design, and I take great pride in assisting people reach their goals. As a native Oaklander, it's always satisfying to introduce people to the beautiful Bay Area and all it has to offer. And I so enjoy helping a Seller get the highest possible price for their home. There is no 'formula' for perfection in this business, but there are definitely certain qualities that make for a successful Realtor - and I feel I have those qualities and continue to educate myself on the ever changing needs of the industry.
I've built my success of honesty, enthusiasm and innovation. Buying or selling your home is one of the biggest financial decision you'll make in your lifetime - and I strive to make the process not only fun, but as stress-free as possible" ~ Karyn.
