Hi. My name is Kara, and I am a Realtor in Aiken, South Carolina.
I like to bake cupcakes! I am a football girl, I like the Kansas City Chiefs and the St. Louis Rams :)
I grew up in New Jersey, and lived there most of my life. (pleeeeease--- don't say Joyzey!) Small town. North Western part of the state. I love being a Jersey Girl. Jersey will be in my heart forever. I've been in Aiken since 1996 and wish I had moved here sooner. Seriously! It is one of the prettiest little towns. I'll have to write a post on 'why I love Aiken'.
I took this picture for a photo contest a few years ago. I won 2nd prize :) How cool is that! (can you see the pic or has it disappeared!?) I also took a picture at New Bridge Polo that ended up on the cover of Farm & Ranch/Country Estates Magazine! Isn't that awesome :) I'll make a separate post with these pictures, in case you can't see them here on my profile.
I've been involved in real estate in some way, shape or form for the past 15 years - but have been a SC Licensed Real Estate Agent and a Realtor for about the past 7 years. I am surrounded by top producers in our office :) I am learning a lot, that's for sure.
A little bit more about me...well, I have a grown child, and I am recently divorced and back doing the dating thing. I have a feeling you will see a blog or two about this, lol. (for those of you who may not be familiar---- lol = laugh out loud) I tell you this, because I use that term A LOT!!
I love my family, friends and I love the beach. I have a very large extended family....tons and tons of cousins. If you think you have a large family, I think mine can beat yours! And not going back 100's of years!! I mean starting with MY Grandparents :)
Aiken is about 2 1/2 hours from Hilton Head Island :) my favorite beach!
Well, as you can see, I'm a talker. Guess I'll save all that stuff for my blog. Oh - there will be plenty of real estate tips, news, updates, things to do, etc...... Watch for it!
I like to read blogs...and I am enjoying writing this blog - and the ActiveRain community. :) A bunch of blogging Realtors, how fun is that!! And to be part of this great community of real estate related professionals is just wonderful. Advice - opinions - suggestions - perspectives - comic relief - insight - sounding boards ...... from so many different professionals in so many different locations. I'm happy to be here.
