Karen Johnson has more than twenty years experience in residential real estate and, as a North Carolina native, a lifetime of experience in the Raleigh area. Licensed in 1996, she has assisted hundreds of families with their real estate needs and along the way, earned several prestigious designations and awards from the companies with which she has been associated. But she still counts her friendships with her clients as her most valued asset. Prior to becoming a real estate professional, Karen developed marketing skills as a public relations professional and listening and caring skills as a professional in the long-term care business. She puts those skills to work for and with her real estate clients for successful transactions.

When she’s not working, Karen enjoys spending time with her three extraordinary grandchildren. She also loves reading and traveling. She walks, spends a little time at the gym, and does yoga to keep healthy. She is a bit of a foodie, spending quality time in the kitchen as well as making reservations at really good restaurants and popping in at interesting dives. Family and friends, including past clients, are very important to her and she makes time to nurture those relationships.
