Business Philosophy

Karen Lynch is a Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate Broker who recognizes the changing market trends, adapts her business strategies to maximize her client’s success, and all of Karen’s professional services are provided with honesty, trust and open communications. Karen is dedicated and passionate about helping her clients fulfill their real estate needs whether it is buying their first home or selling a home that they have lived in for many years. She is committed to working with her clients to ensure they are knowledgeable about the home buying or purchasing process by providing them with the information they need to make confident real estate decisions.

As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:

Find Your Next Home
You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home

Sell a Home
When it's time to move, you need someone who will help you prepare your home to sell, advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.

Consult on Home Selling Tactics
Often times buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. As a Certified Professional Stager, I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.
