About Me

I grew up and worked in a Real Estate environment as both my parents were brokers who owned and operated a Real Estate Office. After graduating from Florida Southern College with a Bachelor’s of Science in Economics I went on to earn a Juris Doctorate from the University of Miami School of Law. Upon graduation from law school I managed the Real Estate division of a large law firm and four years later transitioned into private practice opening a Real Estate Title Agency. I remained in private practice throughout my twenty plus year career before selling my company to relocate to North Carolina.


As a business owner and dealing with buyers, sellers, lenders and Realtors on a daily basis, I developed exceptional communication, organizational, and people skills as well as building a wealth of knowledge in the field of Real Estate.  Let me put my knowledge skills, and experience to work for you.


When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my daughter, granddaughter, my two mini Schnauzers (Snitzel and Spritzel), family and friends. Favorite activities include, reading, cooking, gardening, golf, and last but not least, watching Major League Baseball--Go Braves and Rays!

Karen Spell was excellent from beginning to end. Although most interaction of our purchase of our new home was directly with the builder and his reps, we knew Karen would have our back if we ran into trouble. We certainly appreciated the fact that we had a knowledgeable and experienced agent on our side.

‐ Judy Brockman, Denver, NC

Karen Spell was one of the most professional real estate agents that we have ever used. She was a pleasure to work with and provided excellent service.

‐ Cindy Martin, Green, OH

Karen was very helpful to us when we first put a contract on a pre-built house in Bailey's Glen then decided to build our own. She attended all meetings with the builder and gave great input to us for our decisions. We enjoyed our relationship with her during the process. She was very professional at all times and is always friendly when we see her at local events.

‐ Ann Brown, Cornelius

Karen is always very professional. She doesn't talk about the buyer except when necessary. I respect her for that. I would definitely recommend Karen Spell. She knows the area and she understands your needs.

Dear Karen, thank you so much for selling my house with such efficiency and care. I'm grateful for you returning my calls and handling all my questions!

We fully expected to be there for the closing. My husband had a heart attack and this made it impossible. There were many complications and Karen was on top of them all. She also provided utilities and other information that helped us along the way. I felt very comfortable with communicating with her. She was very professional and again patient. I even told her that I... Read More

Karen Spell worked with our renters to insure they were kept in the loop and considered their timing for all the open houses. She had a great paper and video campaign also.

‐ C Ludinsky, NC

Karen Spell was incredibly helpful in the sale of our home. She made a point to always be available to show the house, and only let people into the house when she was also there. The home sold quickly so I think she was instrumental in pricing the home properly. We appreciate all of her help in the process and appreciate her expertise in guiding us as to what we needed to...

Karen was excellent and got the job done. She knew the market and was aggressive in getting our property in front of other agents and potential buyers. She was professional and a pleasure to work with. We would work with Karen again and highly recommend her to anyone selling or buying in the area.

‐ Ann Gibson, Cornelius NC

My Dad selected Karen Spell based on the strong recommendations of his neighbors who were impressed by her knowledge of the area and professional demeanor. He wanted to chose an agent so my sister and I did not have to worry when the time came to sell the house. Although selling the house was difficult emotionally, it was a very easy process. Karen Spell is an excellent and... Read More

Karen is very efficient and responsive. I particularly appreciate her strong character and trustworthiness and was confident in her knowledge. My husband and I needed guidance and she was there for us through the entire process, from contract through closing, in the selling of our home.

The micro-markets may perform differently, so, individual zip codes, neighborhoods or even streets may buck the overall trend.
