Get To Know

Karen Turner

As a full-time Realtor®, my approach to real estate is focused on personally getting to know my clients.  I enjoy taking quality care of them from beginning to end.  There is no place like home, and I consider it my top priority to provide you with sound real estate advice.  I take personal care of your real estate assets and will make sure you get the maximum value with minimal involvement.

More importantly, I listen to my clients and that means I find solutions that are tailored to you and your situation. If you are buying, then I appreciate the fact that you will be starting your real estate search with me! If you are considering listing your home for sale, then I am the one of the few agents out there that you can't pass up. My promise is to tell you straight up, I will guide you through the process so that you feel comfortable during the transaction. I am always available to answer your questions, to discuss any aspect of the buying or selling of homes for you.

A little about me…when I am not eating, sleeping, and breathing real estate!  I am a Columbia native.  Columbia is home to me, and I appreciate all it has to offer from festivals, trails, entertainment, sports, universities, hospitals, etc.  Columbia is definitely a unique place to live.

I have two wonderful kids, two wonderful grandchildren and two wonderful puppies.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family, friends, puppies, and traveling.  Before I was in Real Estate, I worked for the University of Missouri for 30 years as a Program Coordinator.  During that time, I managed multiple projects, coordinated workshops, and worked with university faculty and students, businesses, city, state, federal and international agencies.  This has given me a breadth and understanding in working with people and truly being in tune to your needs. 

I would very much enjoy working with you.  My focus is making your next move the best move!
