Meet Karen


With a style and skills that match your needs, I look forward to having the privilege of partnering with you as we find you a new place to call home.

Home is a word that evokes different emotions in different people. I've helped many clients find their new homes and would love to work with you, as I know our process will be unique as I find out what 'home' means to you and help you with your transition.

It goes without saying that real estate is a full-time position for me. I wouldn't be valuable to you without staying up-to-date on the ever-changing market and all the related industries surrounding real estate including banking, insurance, building inspection, appraisals, and government policies and changes in the community regulations where I work. And let's not forget, the hours of many classes that hone my skills and keep me on top of real estate contract trends. Together with my professional tool-kit, I am all yours and eager to hear your needs, hopes, and dreams. As we tour properties, I pick up clues that show me how you feel, and I feed that information back to you in a fluid back and forth process. Then, with that knowledge, I can direct you to properties you may have overlooked in your computer search, and that's often how we ultimately find "the ONE." I possess the qualities you expect from a professional agent such as honesty, organization, and endless communication and negotiation skills, but my secret weapon is my persistence in problem-solving.

Before receiving the keys to your new home, there are approximately fifty people who will examine you and the property from various viewpoints. After we write an acceptable contract that protects your interest while we complete discovery about the property, my ability to be pro-active and avoid problems while working tirelessly to keep all parties – including you – focused on collaboration and forward motion will provide you with a truly valuable asset. It is not an understatement to say that real estate is ALL about solving problems, and I am determined to represent you in all resolutions while helping other professionals find ways to say yes so we can get those keys.

I am a licensed Realtor in Washington; an Accredited Buyer’s Representative; a Certified New Home Sales Professional; and a member of the National Association of RealtorsKitsap County Association of Realtors and the Home Builders Association of Kitsap County.

With a style and skills that match your needs, I look forward to having the privilege of partnering with you as we find you a new place to call home.

"Karen is AMAZING! As first time home buyers, we needed all the help we could get and Karen really covered all of our bases for us! She even bought a hose and watered the flowers at the home we were buying while we waited to close! (We were out of state) She always kept us updated on the home buyingprocess and had our best interests in mind. I can't say enough nice things about this wonderful lady! If we ever sell, we will definitely use her services and we highly recommend her to others!"

"Karen is a real pro and a really warm person. She helped me buy my current house. I was a total stress case about making such a big decision. But Karen anticipated every step, kept me on track, found me a great mortgage broker, scheduled people to give me estimates for work that needed to be done, and gave me referrals to people for various services. She was great at negotiating the house price, too. And all the way through the process, she was always calm and upbeat. Can't say enough good things about her!"

"I interviewed several real estate brokers before putting my home up for sale.  I chose Karen Keefe. She sold my home in less than a day for five thousand more than I was asking. Ms. Keefe is insightful, dedicated, thorough and a superb communicator. She would get back to me within a few minutes by phone, email or text messages. Every question or concern was considered important.

Ms. Keefe is able to multitask her way through complex scenarios with dispatch and select a highly professional strategy that brings the the seller and buyer to a closing both find to be in their best interest.

Karen Keefe is the epitome of the professional real estate broker."

"We highly recommend Realtor Karen Keefe. 

During an overseas active duty mobilization in the armed forces, my wife and I had no choice but to sell our rental house on Bainbridge Island. It was the absolute worst time in which to sell property: the housing market had just imploded and our lender – Washington Mutual – was circling the drain. 

But thanks to Karen, what started out as a potential nightmare turned into a smooth transaction. She quickly took charge of getting the house ready for market, finding all the necessary people to take care of clean-up and deferred maintenance issues. She kept us fully informed on viewings and when the final offer came in, she shepherded it through to successful completion. Through it all, she was diligent, detail oriented and highly professional. Simply put, without Karen’s expert help we couldn't have done it. 

We found Karen to be extremely knowledgeable. She is dependable, warm and personable, open and honest, and most importantly, she possesses the highest level of integrity and loyalty. With Karen, we always knew that she was looking out for our best interest. Choose Karen Keefe for your real estate needs and you will not be disappointed!"

"Karen was a great agent. Listened to everything I said and found homes that met my needs. Gave great insight into the market trends and timing. The only reason I was unable to close any deals was my own trepidation having just been divorced I was undecisive. I would highly recommend Karen to anyone looking for an agent."

"Karen made the difficult process of selling our home smooth and easy. It was always a pleasure to communicate with her. She helped me understand the intricacies and implications of a short sale. Not only did she represent our interests in the sale, she worked with our short-sale attorney and communicated with our lender on our behalf. Karen was an outstanding advocate for us throughout the process. I wholeheartedly recommend Karen Keefe. She is professional, knowledgeable and kind."
