If anyone knows what it’s like to move a lot, it’s Karina. As an Irish native and U.S. Veteran spouse, she has lived on three continents and relocated 22 times. Nine of those moves happened within a 10-year period when she was a military spouse.
Given her firsthand experience as a military spouse, Karina is passionate about helping other real estate agents understand the needs of the military community so they can better serve their military clients. Karina has been and is currently coached by some of the most recognized coaches in the real estate industry. She was selected as one of the top 35 Rising Military Entrepreneurs by Inc. Magazine’s Military Entrepreneur Program in 2015 and 2017. In addition, Karina is a Neuro-Linguistic Programming Certified Trainer, Certified John Maxwell Leadership Coach, DISC Certified Coach, and is certified in Train the Presenter.
Karina identified a huge gap in the real estate industry for careers for Veterans and military spouses, and in 2018, she petitioned Keller Williams for the creation of a division within the company to support both careers for the military community and education to help other real estate professionals better serve the military community. In 2021, Karina served on the Military Task Force within Keller Williams, and brought that vision to life later that year. Karina’s efforts brought real estate careers and education for those who serve the military community to the forefront of the mission for the world’s largest real estate brokerage. Karina served as the first trainer for this program.
With a talent for helping others get out of their comfort zones, Karina helps people work towards their goals with clearly defined plans and action steps. When she’s not working, you’ll find Karina hiking, reading, serving on nonprofit committees, or exploring San Antonio on a date night with her husband. If she’s not doing any of those things, she’s most likely at the beach or spending time with her two rambunctious sons and two Australian Shepherds.
