Karen says, “I love what I do!” With over 30 years experience practicing real estate in Houston, Karen feels fortunate to have helped some of the most wonderful people find suitable accommodations in Houston. She specializes strictly in the apartment rental market. Karen listens to what her clients want and matches their specifications to the perfect apartment.
Having observed the construction of most of the apartment complexes built in Houston over the last 30 years, Karen has acquired a thorough knowledge of the rental market. Houston is now going through another period of new apartment construction. “It’s been an exciting time to help newcomers to Houston as well as past clients wanting to move into newer accommodations.” She successfully places an average of more than 125 clients each year into apartments.
A large majority of Karen’s personal referrals come from the Texas Medical Center as well as from a number of universities, colleges and various companies. She regularly helps international visitors looking for housing. “I enjoy meeting our international visitors and hearing about their countries and cultures. I try my best to make them feel at home in Houston.” As many of her clients are new to the city, she frequently shows her clients around Houston as part of their apartment home search so they can become familiar with the variety of neighborhoods available.
Karen often works as a team with her daughter, Lisa Reichek, a Martha Turner Sotheby’s International Realty Broker Associate. She feels blessed to have her daughter’s assistance and is so happy to be able to recommend Lisa to her renters when they decide to become homeowners.
Karen was born in Chicago, Illinois and moved to Houston 49 years ago. She resides in Bellaire, Texas. She has two wonderful daughters and three darling grandchildren who all live in Houston. Karen attended the University of Texas, Austin and completed her Bachelor’s degree at the University of Houston. She volunteers on the hospital visiting committee for her congregation. When not working, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, doing Pilates, attending the ballet, and visiting the Museum of Fine Arts.
