Get to know Karen Montgomery

I went to the University of Michigan playing soccer at the varsity level all four years and graduated with a degree in Psychology.  After graduating I worked in the helping profession...I ran a group home for adults with developmental disabilities in Chicago for two years, taught English as a second language in South Korea for four years, and coached soccer and tennis at the varsity level at Casa Grande Union High school.  Now, I'm helping people find their dream homes. 

My family all lives in Arizona.  My parents live in Casa Grande, my younger brother lives in Tucson, and my older brother, Marc lives in Maricopa with his wife, Carey and two children.  I live in Maricopa as well. 

I'm super active!  Traveling, soccer, running, hiking, tennis, and foosball are just some of the activities I partake on a weekly basis.  This energy translates into every aspect of my life including real estate.

I am a buyers specialist.  What does this really mean?  I've thought about this a lot and this is what I've come up with....As a buyers specialist I help the buyer narrow down what exactly they are looking for in a home.  Then based on their wish list we find a group of houses that are a good match.  Once the buyer finds their dream house it's my job to run comparables to see what a similiar house (square footage, location) sold for in the past 3 months.  We come up with a plan to win and at the best price.  Once the offer is accepted than my job becomes a lot more intense.  I must assist my clients with the paperwork (trust me there's a lot) and make sure that their file is in working order.  One of the major bonuses for me in representing the buyer is I don't have to negotiate my commission because commission comes out of the seller side already predetermined when the house was posted on ARMLS.  I can solely focus on negotiating the best deal for my clients. 

My main target areas are Maricopa, Casa Grande, Queen Creek/San Tan Valley, and Avondale.  These areas I believe have the best prices. I  have also done open houses in the east valley. 

Why pick me?  My team (we like to refer to ourselves as the "Team Realty Force") has a combined experience of 10 years.  We know that the home buying process can be stressful and so we realize that a having a good balance of professionalism and a good sense of humor helps make a winning and rewarding experience.  I do real estate full time and make myself accessible to my clients when they need me.  I will follow-up and will respond to your needs quickly.
