Karen is certified with the Trans National Referral Council and is also a Certified International Property Specialist -- these specialties give Karen the scope and ability to assist with real estate needs beyond just the Big Island, yet she enjoys nothing more than sharing her love of the culture and spirit of Hawaii with her clients.
