Karin Housley founded Karin Housley Homes in 2003 and has been consistently a Top Salesperson in the Twin Cities market. Karin’s mastery of the St. Croix Valley and East Metro is clear, yet she never stops striving for new knowledge. Karin constantly has her thumb on the pulse of the community, from new developments, school boundaries affecting communities, new and established area businesses, city ordinances and the Scenic St. Croix River protections. Karin attends Washington County meetings and the area's city council meetings to keep up on the future of our growing east metro. Karin prides herself on a deeper level of community knowledge as it affects our real estate market. Karin has received many industry awards for her hard work, dedication and success in the real estate market, but a satisfied client is always her main goal and accomplishment.
In addition to Karin's extensive knowledge, she is heavily involved in the community. From her volunteer work at numerous non-profits and memberships to local chambers and rotaries, Karin is "everywhere." She will often be seen at high school sporting events to Minnesota Wild, Twins and Vikings games. She attends numerous fundraising events in the community and sponsors many, many more. The number one topic of conversation when out and about is, "How's the Real Estate Market?" Karin has local real estate statistics on the tip of her tongue and loves spreading the word of new listings, developments and current sales. Karin and her husband (Phil) were born and raised in South Saint Paul, and raised their own family in the Stillwater School District. Karin proudly represents Senate District 39 in the Minnesota State Senate which only strengthens her understanding and knowledge of the community.
Karin Housley is also very proud to have her two daughters on The Karin Housley Homes Team. Taylor Housley Pass and Reide Housley are following in their mother's footsteps after years of riding along in the car with her to show homes. The team concept works well for the Housleys as you have full time attention, and attention to detail, by all three - making a smooth transition from buying or selling a home, through the inspection process, the status of the financing and appraisal, to the closing table. The Karin Housley Homes Team will hold your hand every step of the way.
Karin Housley has built her reputation on the foundation of integrity. The integrity to put her customer first in every single situation. Karin Housley is highly regarded in the Twin Cities community, by her real estate peers throughout the country, and perhaps most importantly, by her customers and clients. Karin specializes in the St. Croix Valley, both in Minnesota and Wisconsin, waterfront homes, luxury homes and has consistently been recognized as a Minneapolis/St. Paul Super Agent since 2006.
A graduate of the State University of New York with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication, Karin's passion has always been marketing. She sees every home as another opportunity to try new techniques to get your home sold. She does extensive print advertising in home magazines and far-reaching online showcasing of her properties. She is constantly networking with other agents across the state and country and stays in contact with relocation companies in our largest employers. She is always pulling up her listings on her iPad, phone or watch when out in the community. She is constantly on the go, keeping tabs on the real estate market, the community, the latest marketing strategies and the newest listings to hit the market. Karin and her team would love to sit down with you to show our full marketing plan specific to your home.
