What do Clients Say?

“Thanks for the great work Karla! You go the extra mile to make the deal work. Karla, thank you for helping us. We will definitely refer all of our family and friends to you.”

Henry & Terrie R.

“We give our highest recommendation for Karla to be your Real Estate Advisor. We really enjoyed working with her. She has so much to offer professionally and personally. She offers the very rare combination of being conscientious, patient, professional and yet very warm. Karla makes her job look effortless but we have no doubt she gives her best in every conversation and meeting we had with her. It was a pleasure working with her and there is no doubt she will deliver for you as well.”

Robert & Angela C.

"I am not easily impressed, but it is not every day I – or anyone else I bet – encounters a professional such as Karla. She is very knowledgeable and made sure everything was done correctly. She answered our questions right away and exceeded our expectations. Karla is very pleasant and personable. We certainly feel very confident referring her any chance we get!"

Jim & Christy W.

"Karla was able to sell my home very quickly. I wasn't prepared for the number of offers we received on my house. She said she could sell it fast and boy did she! I highly recommend Karla. She will help guide you to make the best decision when you are ready to list your house."

Tiffany M.

"It was such a pleasure working with Karla. She really knows how to sell a house. Her social media campaigns are amazing and gets people hooked right away. We had so many showings on our house. To accomodate the showing schedule we decided to leave for the weekend. When we arrived back from our mini trip Karla had multiple offers waiting for us. We were so excited to accept the best offer and get ready to move into our new house that Karla helped us select. Choosing Karla as our Real Estate Advisor was the best decision because she got us results fast!"

About Karla

I am a Luxury REALTOR® with eXp Realty in Siesta Key, FL, assisting executives, entrepreneurs, investors and professional athletes with the purchase and sale of high-end residential, vacation and investment properties.  I enjoy helping my clients find the right property for their needs and providing top-notch service while negotiating the best deal on their behalf.
 
What makes me unique is that I'm a Real Estate and Business Attorney who has been representing developers, investors and business owners for over 16 years. I provide counsel and legal interpretation on complex real estate acquisitions, dispositions, development and business transactions, including 1031 Tax-Deferred Exchanges, public and private financing, due diligence, corporate formation and governance, contract negotiation, regulatory compliance and risk management.  I have successfully negotiated the acquisition and financing of over $275 Million in commercial, high-end residential, multifamily, and mixed use properties.

I earned a Bachelors of Science in Industrial Engineering from Purdue University, a Juris Doctor from Washburn University School of Law and a Masters of Law in Taxation from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Law.  My background and education has prepared me for my career and passion in Real Estate.

After graduating from Purdue, I worked as an Industrial Engineer with various Fortune 500 companies for seven years before deciding to go to Law School to become an Attorney. 

I enjoy being active within the community and giving back. I have served the community as an Advisory Council Board Member to the Oak Ridge Youth Development School, a Member of the Board of Directors for the Association of Corporate Counsel Midwest Chapter, a Facilitator for the Couple’s Marriage Preparation Course for the Archdiocese of Wyandotte County, Kansas City, KS, and a Legal Mentor for the Blue Hills Contractor Incubator.  I currently serve as a Board Member of the Children's Guardian Fund in Sarasota, FL, a Board Member of Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, a Board Member of the Purdue Alumni Club of Sarasota, Member of the Fundraising Committee for the EVO Athletics Foundation, Inc., Masala Giving Circle, a Member of the Lambda Omicron Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. serving as the Chair of the Risk Management Committee and I volunteer to feed the homeless with the Blessing Bags Foundation.  

I have been featured in two recent publications: Vanguard Law Magazine and Washburn Lawyer.  My most recent speaking engagement includes BFA Law Network and Woman Up Level Up.  

My husband, Bradley, and I have two boys (18 and 15) and we live in Lakewood Ranch, FL. In our spare time we love listening to jazz music and going to the beach. Our oldest son is a pianist, song writer, singer and music producer. Our youngest son is a competitive gymnast.
 
I look forward to helping you build Wealth with Real Estate and Love living the Florida lifestyle!
