A Listening Ear

For Karen McKinney, real estate is about relationships. “I really enjoy getting to know my clients. It’s all about them: what they need, what they want, what they love, and matching them to the home that fits all three. Helping people and matching individuals and families with their perfect home is the best part of my job.” 

Regardless of the type of property, you’re purchasing, or your budget, Karen is here to help! She has a passion for real estate and can't wait to exceed your every expectation.

A Personal Experience

Karen’s family has moved a lot. Twenty times, in fact. She has lived in Switzerland and all over the United States, from east to west and in between. In the year 2000, her family settled in Ann Arbor and she has called the Ann Arbor area home for twenty-two years. Karen understands the process of moving better than anyone. It’s what makes Karen’s approach to real estate so unique and helpful to her clients. “Living in so many different places has given me a great perspective and understanding about the process and transition that occurs.”   Whether it is across the street, the nation, or the globe, it is both exciting and stressful. That’s why Karen takes the time to listen to how her clients are feeling and does everything she can to make the process comfortable, smooth and successful. 

A Giving Spirit

Karen believes in giving back to the community. She is on the Board of The Ann Arbor Thrift Shop and for several years has volunteered there. She was a team parent for many Skyline High School athletic clubs, an Area Representative for Youth For Understanding, an international high school exchange program, and hosted students in her home. Be it a paid or volunteer position she knows how to be an advocate. She puts her heart, tenaciousness, and positive energy into getting you what you want as smoothly and seamlessly as possible.

It All Comes Together

Karren’s relationship with her clients just begins with the purchase or sale of their home. Karen makes sure her clients are settled in their new home and helps them acclimate to the community. Whether it is a grocery store recommendation, activities for the kids, or referring a great handyman, Karen is there to help you!
