I am an experienced Broker who was raised and currently lives in the Western Suburbs. A 2006 graduate of Lyons Township High School, I attended The College of DuPage and DeVry. I began my real estate career with The Resurrection Project (TRP), a not-for-profit organization (NFP) helping low to moderate income level families realize their dreams of home ownership. In her first 6 months there, I helped 15 families become successful homeowners and conducted “first time home buyer” education seminars. As part of the social media committee at TRP, I conducted multiple interviews with Comcast, ESPN and Univision.
Previously, I was president of an NFP in the Hodgkins community in collaboration with other local community organizations, such as The LeaderShop, Pillars and BEDS, that helped residents relocate during displacement. My additional professional experience includes 10 years in banking.
I am fluent in English and Spanish.
“My first exposure to Smothers was as a client, where I was impressed with their level of customer service, so I’m excited now to join the firm to continue my Broker career,” said Karina.
