Karen Cormier

Owner

I’ve been a full time Realtor since 1995, and I work for Keller Williams Realty Metropolitan in Bedford which is the number one real estate company in New Hampshire! I always helped my sellers in getting their properties ready for the market by de-cluttering and de-personalizing their homes. Back then, I didn’t realize the work I was doing was called staging. I now own my own staging business with over $160,000 worth of current trend inventory! I strongly believe that you can’t sell your house the way you live in it, especially in today’s market! I’m very passionate about my job and my sellers and clients as well as buyers, love the end results!

I work with just as many buyers, and I know what they like and don’t like. Buyers today don’t want to do anything but move in. A "lived in" home, limits the possibilities for a Buyer, while a staged home allows them to envision themselves living there. They love walking into my properties that are clean, de-cluttered, de-personalized and staged to look like a Model. No one likes a dated, unkept or very personalized home which is why my properties sell in days to under a month on average.

My background entails floral design, retail sales, interior decorating, and artist and business management. I've taught home staging classes to the real estate industry and published a series of articles on best practices for turning your home into a house which becomes a product for the consumer to buy.

My goal is to sell your house in the shortest period of time for the most amount of money in your pocket!

Photographer

Having been a portrait photographer for eight years, I also joined the real estate business in 2012. I believe my experience as both a Realtor and photographer help to create quality real estate photography for my clients. The images I take are well composed, properly lit, warm and inviting. They depict a true representation of the property. Agents, sellers and most importantly, potential buyers are more likely to be drawn to listings accompanied by good listing photography. I have been Karen's exclusive photographer for two years, and I'm always in awe of her work as a stager. She makes my job easy! When great staging and great photography are combined, listings sell faster. It's proven in Karen's record, awards and reputation.
