In her early years, Karen Wisdom wanted to be a water meter reader. When she was turned down because she was a woman and not “strong” enough to handle fieldwork, she left for a field that would give her a fighting chance – real estate.
“As an asset manager, I worked on REOs and bank-owned properties, which was often quite emotional,” Karen recalls. “When you give people cash for their keys, it’s a very distressing situation.” She eventually moved over to escrow and caught the bug. When the time came to find work closer to home, she did her research and came across Yelp reviews for Glen Oaks Escrow that had her actively pursuing a position with the company. “After meeting with the management team, I knew I wanted to work here and it’s even better than I expected. Everything is awesome – the marketing support, the computer systems and the people!” Karen’s compassionate streak is highly appreciated by those who’ve experienced distressed home sale situations as well as first-time homebuyers. Her escrow skills and knowledge cover a wide array of transactions including: REOs, short sales, refinance, residential, and commercial.
On the weekends, Karen swings into action on the golf course. Giving her husband a run for his money, she works her way around bunkers and sand traps for those sweet long drives down the fairway. Fore!
