Karen Sanchez


Get To Know Me

I can honestly say after 22 years as a real estate agent, I love connecting with people and helping them in any way they need. A Los Angeles native, I know the city well and understand the subtleties that differentiate the various neighborhoods.
I chose real estate when after many years in retail sales, I decided that if I could sell something small like lipstick, then I could sell something more significant, like a home. Clients have found it easy to work with me as my experience, knowledge, and energetic attitude have garnered them the results they desire.
I pride myself on my ability to work with any personality type and have the skill set to guide you through the process, I truly love the Zillow review where the client said it was fun, seamless, and a pleasurable experience!
That is what my brand is all about, creating a positive memory during what can be an emotional and stressful time letting go of the life you had. Whether selling a property or purchasing your first condo, home, investment, or mansion! I find true satisfaction in my clients' joy when escrow closes, and I can hand the keys over to their new homes!
Formerly part of one of the largest teams at Sotheby’s International Realty in West Hollywood, I was able to incorporate my previous experience in retail sales, marketing, and hair salon management into a successful enterprise. My background allows me to connect with my diverse clientele on many levels. I truly enjoy creating long-lasting relationships while helping them determine the best fit – be it an individual, couple, or family, hence why my clients trust and refer me to their colleagues, friends, and family.
In my personal life, I am the mother of three children. I love a perfect French martini, the beach, fine hotels, regular exercise, and relaxing in spas. Los Angeles and Orange County have a lot to offer you.
Additional Services Upon Request: Consultation, Decluttering, Staging.
