Broker associate Karen Anderson has been active in South Bay real estate since 1997. She founded The Prestige Team in 2007 and works under the Keller Williams Realty umbrella.

What is your team known for?

We’re best known for being completely full service. We were providing true concierge service before it was a “thing.” We handle everything from beginning to end—repairs, complete remodels, cleaning, staging, packing, decluttering. My team and I roll up our sleeves and handle it all! This all-inclusive approach is appreciated by our sellers who are really busy and can’t get it done or are just overwhelmed by the process. 

Why is working with a team beneficial?

I have an amazing team. Our varying skill sets help our clients in so many ways. Someone is always available to help them. All of my team members have been hand-selected by me and have to maintain a high level of service and be professional and ethical at all times. From expert marketing to the “grunt work” of prepping our listings for sale to the nitty-gritty of getting trash picked up, utilities turned on … whatever is needed, we have someone on it! 

What is your advice for buyers in the current market?

Don’t be fearful! This market is an opportunity. Limited inventory means that current sellers have a need to sell. General nervousness about rates that has others sitting on the sidelines means less competition for you! Take advantage of the lower prices, property taxes and mortgage and your negotiating power. When rates drop and you can refinance, you will be golden! 

Is staging a home worth the cost?

As part of our concierge service, we are so convinced staging is worth the cost and effort that we include it on all of our listings for free! Surprisingly, many buyers don’t have the vision to see how a space can be best utilized, and staging makes a huge difference. Statistics back the theory that staged homes sell faster and for more money.

What do you want potential clients to know about working with you? 

The one thing I always tell both buyers and sellers is that with me, what you see is what you get. I tend to have a very direct approach, but I will always give my very best advice whether it comes to buying or selling. I’ll play devil’s advocate to make sure my buyers consider every facet before making the biggest financial decision of their lives and that my sellers know exactly how to maximize their opportunities for the best end result.
