Karen Barnes

Real Estate Agent

Having grown up in New York State, and after living a few years in NYC, as Assistant Controller for a tech company off Wall Street, I decided to move out West in 1994. This meant Arizona! I knew two people in AZ only! I was offered a starter sales position with MicroAge, then a Fortune 500 Company, in Tempe, Arizona. I became the Top Sales Rep within the next two years, (averaged over 600M in annual sales) and decided to start my own business in Real Estate a few years later after not finding the right company to work for/with. In 2002. I floundered for that time trying to find the right type of business for me. After working with an On-line ad company, and supporting local Realtors ,I became a Realtor with RE/MAX, the largest real estate franchise in the world. My first year, I sold over $5M! I grew a team, and in 2008, went to RE/MAX Excalibur, the #1 RE/MAX franchise in AZ. In August of 2016, after 14 years with RE/MAX, I arrived at Realty ONE Group. With the company, people, support of my brokers, I am truly and happy in my new "home"! Realty ONE Group is outstanding, and growing so quickly!

I have learned so much from all aspects of owning my own business over the years: The love of helping others achieve home ownership, the love of architecture and community, the thrill of a deal and negotiating best terms for my clients, marketing, and the joy of entrepreneurship, and philanthropic community measures.

Whatever needs you may have as a Buyer, or Seller, I will promise excellence in delivering to you the best terms, conditions. communications and professionalism. It's that simple.

Please let me know how I may serve you, your friends, family, or associates now and in the future. You will find me selling homes to buyers and sellers for a long time. It's in my blood, and it's what I am passionate about. Thank you all for your referrals, as this continues to be the lifeblood of my business today!

Committed to serving all!
My best always,
Karen Barnes
