Karen Cifala started her 2nd career as a Realtor® in 2003 after many years as an accountant for various firms in the Northern VA area. Karen uses her background in finances to help her clients achieve their goals for their real estate transactions. She raised her family in Vienna, VA, and after her children flew the coop her adventuresome spirit moved her from the suburbs of Vienna, VA to Baltimore, MD as a Realtor@ to be a city dweller. From there, the west winds called her to Boulder, CO where she enjoyed selling homes from quaint mountain villages to the ecologically green contemporaries and the Front Range farms. Her heart settled down in Clarke County, VA to be near her grandchildren, bringing with her a wealth of real estate experience that welcomes even the most challenging situations. Newly married again, Karen recently moved to Durham, NC to be with her sweetie (and no grandchildren ..... which is sad).

Karen holds the respected SRES designation (Senior Real Estate Specialist), and especially enjoys working with seniors and their families and children. Especially important to her is listening to what her clients want and need in their new homes and making sure their next homes will best serve their current and future needs. Her broad knowledge of residential real estate leads her almost anywhere and her attention to detail will make sure that every aspect of her clients' buying or selling process runs smoothly. Her real estate experience and accomplishments extend to:

  • Both rural and urban residential property matters
  • Foreclosure properties (during the great recession)
  • First-time homeowners and last time homeowners
  • Technically savvy and a good eye for marketing, staging, downsizing
  • Volunteer for Habitat for Humanity
  • Being a great team member and doing what it takes
