Karen Johnson - CE, Career Development

I was born and raised in Raleigh, NC. I married a Raleigh native and he and I have been blessed to raise two delightful children in the same area.

In 2012 my husband and I purchased some land where we built our "dream home". The process of buying and selling and building was emotional and not always easy. That is the main reason I decided to get into real estate. I wanted to help others get through those real estate transactions with a sense of trust and confidence in their agent.

Because of this latest adventure in life, I am excited to be able to work with clients and agents in Land and New Home Sales Division for Home Coach Realty. I also am BIC Eligible. There is so much to know about building and acquiring land and I look forward to assisting others with their purchases.

I love to learn and look forward to sharing that knowledge with you in our classroom at Home Coach!
