Real Estate Agent
Karen Springer specializes in real estate sales in the place she loves most, Shelter Island. She has owned investment properties in Shelter Island as well as in Costa Rica and Colombia, and enjoys helping clients find both special homes and value-driven investments.

The current owner of a retail store in Shelter Island, as well as a home there for many years, Karen knows the market extremely well. Her ability to interact well with people, creatively resolve problems and manage any situation with finesse contributes to her effectiveness as a dedicated real estate advisor to her clients.

Originally from Colombia, Karen moved to Costa Rica with her family at age 17. She went to college at U Latina in Costa Rica with a Bachelor’s in Journalism concentrated in Communication and Marketing. Karen subsequently worked as a manager for Britt Company in retail in Costa Rica, Peru and Chile and trained new employees. Her extensive sales and service background is invaluable when walking her buyers and sellers through the complex yet rewarding process of transacting real estate.

Always willing to listen and to help, Karen’s goal is just as much focused on getting the best results. She is honest, positive, determined and organized – all the qualities that ensure a successful real estate experience.

“I love the nature, peacefulness and living quality of Shelter Island, and I couldn’t be happier here. When we work together, my hope is to find you a home you treasure just as much.”
