Who is Karen Weiner?
Karen was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. She relocated to Vancouver, with her parents and brother, during her university years.
Karen comes from a real estate background; both her parents are retired Realtors living on BC’s beautiful Sunshine Coast. Karen presently enjoys living in the Port Moody area with the 2 loves of her life: her cats, Phoebe & Sweetpea.
Her single life affords her the luxury of being extremely focused on her career which means being extremely focused on YOU and your Real Estate needs! She lived in Vancouver for 12 years before moving to Port Moody in 2003.
Karen’s “earmark” for business is SERVICE, SERVICE, SERVICE and SIMPLIFYING THE PROCESS!! She works with many first time home buyers and home sellers and takes pride in the ability to help her clients make sense of the sometimes daunting task of navigating the real estate market and the actual process of buying and selling. Ensuring that her clients’ needs and expectations are met is extremely important to her, as most of her business comes from word of mouth!

What is the most important thing you should know about Karen Weiner?
Karen takes her work very seriously. Work isn’t just work, but rather a PASSION! Being the people person that she is, she loves connecting with clients. Not only does she have the knowledge and patience to help you through the process step by step…. But she also makes buying and selling your home FUN!
On one of her worldly adventures (during a Safari bush survival course), she was required to eat animal dung!!! Yum yum! Now if that doesn’t give you a good idea of the lengths she will go to, in order to get the job done, then I don’t know what will!
