Karen Garcia knows South Florida. Her family moved here from Chicago, IL when she was only 4 years old and her love for this part of the world is evident in her real estate practice. She grew up in and around Westchester, went to high school in South Miami, attended Florida International University in Sweetwater, started her first business venture in Doral and has lived and / or worked in Hialeah Gardens, West Kendall, Coral Gables, South Miami, Pinecrest, Miami Beach and Brickell.
Karen’s uncanny ability to truly connect with a buyer and / or seller’s objectives is what sets her apart from the rest. She first seeks to understand a client’s needs and desires, then puts a plan together that is detailed, practical and measurable. This attention to detail coupled with her unparalleled customer service is why her clients are loyal and her biggest advocates. These skills were honed through her years as a registered representative in the financial services industry with a fortune 100 company. There she helped hundreds of individuals, families, professionals and business owners maximize their wealth and minimize their taxes by creating strategic financial plans that covered all aspects of her clients’ financial lives: Insurance, retirement, college planning, buy-sell agreements, deferred compensation plans and more. As a trusted advisor, many clients would come to her for advice in all areas of their lives, including real estate purchases. Karen began to advise her clients on their real estate transactions whether it was their primary home or an investment property.
When Mrs. Garcia was ready for a change, it was her clients who recommended she pursue real estate full time. They knew what she was yet to find out, that it was her passion. Aside from her trustworthiness, attention to detail and customer service, Karen’s strength lies in her negotiating skills. Whether representing a buyer or a seller, she identifies the goal, removes her personal pre-conceptions, gains respect and trust from both sides and works towards the desired outcome with an unwavering commitment to excellence.
