Who Is Karen Rice, anyway?
Every REALTOR®, it seems, has the same story. “I love working with people. I love houses! I love helping people find their dream homes. I love helping people….” They all say they’re the best, hard-working, the smartest, the top-producing agent…Yada, yada, yada.
As a kid, my dreams were fairly common: a teacher, an actress, or a cruise director (call it my Love Boat phase.) For a while, my crush on Erik Estrada made me consider joining CHP upon graduation. I remember breaking a cheap metal towel bar while doing my Bionic Woman impersonation. I don’t think I ever thought of being a real estate agent…
Shortly before the dinosaurs died out, I worked at one of the only 1-hour photo labs in Wayne County, as a film tech, receptionist, and free-lance photographer. Since the Internet was still a twinkle in Al Gore’s eye at that time, only a few REALTORS® brought their 35mm in to be developed quickly. I remember looking at the pictures and thinking “Man, I could do this!”
Time marched on and I found myself married with 3 kids, working from home creating websites for local real estate agents. Enjoying the business, I saw considerable success as a real estate website designer. I also worked for a local real estate firm as the office admin and internet specialist. Finally, in 2007, I decided to hang up my office worker’s cap and get “out in the field” selling real estate.
It’s been an exciting and interesting journey. I sell real estate full time; this is my career and my “real job.” I am proud to be at the prestigious firm of Davis R. Chant Realtors. Chant is a very exciting, successful, stable, and energetic office.
Karen & Trixie on a Hike
I love my career, working here in Pike and Wayne Counties. I enjoy getting to know people, building relationships, and am having a lot of fun while doing it. In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities: bicycling, kayaking, and hiking with my husband, three kids, or my Labrador retriever Trixie. The abundance of trails, lakes, woods, and scenic areas offer many opportunities for enjoying beautiful Northeastern PA.
No that’s not a typo – it’s just a way to say I will DO my due diligence for every one of my clients. I will strive to provide excellent service for you. I’m not going to brag about how fantastic I am – that’s not my style. I just want to assure you that I will do my best for you.
