Dare 2 Dream

helping you sell your home or buy your dream home

Taking care of your real estate needs is what I do best

I started my real estate career in Idaho in 2003. Moved to Florida in 2011 as a new home sales & personal assistant, along with traveling the world as a flight attendant. During my travels I fell in love with the lakes of Michigan. I am a member of NAR, GKAR and hold a Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation, which helps better serve my snowbird clients. I pride myself with searching out higher education to better serve you. I am currently working on obtaining my ABR (Agent Buyer's representative ) & Agent of Excellence designations.

My business is built on communication, dedication, and transparency. My understanding & caring personality can be attributed to the demanding positions I have held over the years. My love of real estate and meeting new people that turn into clients are treated as friends and family, is why I've chosen to be in this great career.

Partnered with the top-performing brokerage of Keller Williams Kalamazoo. Customer service training with Disney's past VP of the Magic Kingdom and a former Disney Institute facilitator, has sharpened my gift of giving my clients an unforgettable experience.

I Love living in the Mitten full time, and sunning in the Sunshine State part- time.

I'm living the dream in both worlds.

Karla is amazing! 2022 was an extremely difficult year, which lead to my husband and I making the hard decision to move from NC back home to GA, closer to family. Karla knew our situation, asked some questions and then interviewed realtors licensed in NC for us. The realtor she chose was spot on and helped us sell for more than we were expecting. I am forever grateful to Karla for taking on the burden of interviewing and picking the best local realtor.

Client Testimonials

Karla was an amazing realtor, since moving to this state, I have used about a half dozen realtors, and their service was in my view, sub-par.

Karla really went above and beyound. From learning what I was looking for in a home ad being able to recommend houses which I would like and advising me on ones she thought I wouldn't like "that I ask to see" saved so much of my time. Karla listened to my price limits and did her best to stay within my desired range. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

-Arren Wilson

Karla is a very dedicated, hardworking, thorough agent. She did a wonderful job of staging my home prior to it going on the market. She was very knowledgeable of the market in this neighborhood and was very instrumental in helping me establish an accurate selling price. My house sold in one day and for more than the market price. When the offers came in the one day it was on the market she worked through each offer with me until I decided which offer I wanted to accept. There was no delay in her communication throughout the entire process. Her skills in working with the buyer's agent was exemplary. She was involved from start to finish at the closing table. Karla is the epitome of a professional and I highly recommend working with her.


Karla to our rescue one again!! We had a realtor in GA helping us look and purchase a home. After a couple meetings and showings, he dropped the ball and left us hanging. I reached out to Karla and once again, she took on the responsibility of interviewing and choosing a local realtor in GA. She picked the perfect realtor again. He was a bulldog, and helped us find and close on a house fast. She will never fully know how much her doing the leg work of finding the perfect local realtor is appreciated more than I can ever say.
