I was born and raised in Knoxville, TN and earned a Bachelor's degree from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Although I enjoy traveling, I have never left my roots of East Tennessee, which gives me a great knowledge of the area to help you when buying or selling a home.
I represent both buyers and sellers in residential real estate transactions. Whether you are a first time home buyer or ready to down-size, I will provide outstanding, personalized customer service to guide you through the process and help you make the right move.

"We really enjoyed working with Kara. I could not have asked for a more prompt - on top of our every need - agent! She never made us feel like we were annoying her with ALL our questions. I would without a doubt recommend her to anyone!"- Amanda
"I wouldn't have had this wonderful experience with anybody but Kara, while buying my new condo in German Creek. Everything went so smooth and being here in Michigan she made it even smoother. I'm excited to spend my time in Tennessee. Thank you, Kara. I look forward to continuing our friendship." -Jeanne
"Having Kara as our listing agent was a smart decision! Along the way, we were impressed by her professionalism and the attention she gave to our house. She did a great job marketing our lake house, and we really appreciated the way she kept us informed throughout the process. Best of all, she produced results! Not only did Kara list our house, she also brought us a buyer!" -Tracy
FAIR HOUSING STATEMENT Federal and state fair housing laws were put into effect to create an even playing field for homebuyers in all areas of a real estate transaction. These laws prohibit discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, and national origin. Civil Rights Act of 1866 The Civil Rights Act of 1866 prohibits all racial discrimination in the sale or rental of property. Fair Housing Act The Fair Housing Act of 1968 makes fair housing a national policy. It prohibits discrimination in the sale, lease or rental of housing, or making housing otherwise unavailable because of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status or national origin. Americans with Disabilities Act Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities in commercial facilities and places of public accommodation. Equal Credit Opportunity Act The Equal Credit Opportunity Act makes it unlawful to discriminate against anyone on a credit application due to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, age or because all or part of an applicant's income comes from any public assistance program. THE RESPONSIBILITIES The home seller, the home seeker, and the real estate professional all have rights and responsibilities under the law. For the Home Seller You should know that as a home seller or landlord you are obligated not to discriminate in the sale, rental and financing of property on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin. You may not instruct the licensed broker or salesperson acting as your agent to convey for you any limitations in the sale or rental, because the real estate professional is also obligated not to discriminate. Under the law, a home seller or landlord cannot establish discriminatory terms or conditions in the purchase or rental; deny that housing is available or advertise that the property is available only to persons of a certain race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin. For the Home Seeker You have the right to expect that housing will be available to you without discrimination or other limitations based on race, color, religion, sex, disability, familial status, or national origin.
