Karen Jernigan joins Sotheby's International Realty with more than seven years of business development, marketing, and sales experience. She began her real estate career back in the height of the market in 2008, in her hometown of Denver, CO. She founded an integrative design firm that catered residential and commercial staging and design services to top brokers along the Front Range. Karen lived in New York City for eight years before she moved to Laguna Beach, CA, where she became a licensed real estate salesperson and acquired listings with Pacific Sotheby's International Realty in Newport Beach. Her first love is yacht racing, which is part of what drew her to the east end of Long Island to assist top producer, Deborah Srb. Karen joins with aspirations to learn from the best of the best and to eventually help build a bi-coastal team.
