Hi. My name is Kara, and I am a Realtor in Aiken, South Carolina. I am also a SC licensed Broker, and now Broker-In-Charge at International Property Management Group, LLC!
I like to bake cupcakes, rollerskate and take pictures! (not necessarily in that order, and not at the same time!..although I have been known to wear my skates in the kitchen on occasion) I am a football girl, my teams are Kansas City Chiefs and St. Louis Rams :)
I grew up in New Jersey, and lived there most of my life. (pleeeeease--- don't say Joyzey!) Small town. North Western part of the state. I love being a Jersey Girl. Jersey will be in my heart forever. I've been in Aiken almost 20 years and wish I had moved here sooner. Seriously! It is one of the prettiest little towns. I'll have to write a post on 'why I love Aiken'.
I took this picture for a photo contest a few years ago. I won 2nd prize :) How cool is that! (can you see the pic or has it disappeared!?) I also took a picture at New Bridge Polo that ended up on the cover of Farm & Ranch/Country Estates Magazine! Isn't that awesome :) I'll make a separate post with these pictures, in case you can't see them here on my profile.
I've been involved in real estate in some way, shape or form since 1996 - but have been a SC Licensed Real Estate Agent and a Realtor since 2006. I worked as a licensed assistant for many years, surrounded by top producers in the office :) I learned a lot, that's for sure! In 2015 I got my SC Broker license!
A little bit more about me...well, I have a grown child, and I am recently divorced and back doing the dating thing. I have a feeling you will see a blog or two about this, lol. (for those of you who may not be familiar---- lol = laugh out loud) I tell you this, because I use that term A LOT!!
I love my family, friends and I love the beach. I have a very large extended family....tons and tons of cousins. If you think you have a large family, I think mine can beat yours! And not going back 100's of years!! I mean starting with MY Grandparents :)
Aiken is about 2 1/2 hours from Hilton Head Island :) my favorite beach! - and about 2 hours to the NC mountains....and 3 hours to Atlanta, -we're in a great spot.
Well, as you can see, I'm a talker. Guess I'll save all that stuff for my blog. Oh - there will be plenty of real estate tips, news, updates, things to do, etc...... Watch for it!
I like to read blogs...and I am enjoying writing this blog - and the ActiveRain community. :) A bunch of blogging Realtors... how fun is that!! And to be part of this great community of real estate related professionals is just wonderful. Advice - opinions - suggestions - perspectives - comic relief - insight - sounding boards ...... from so many different professionals in so many different locations. I'm happy to be here.
