Licensed Principal Broker in the State of Oregon
I believe that being a realtor® is so much more than helping people to sell and buy homes – it’s about building relationships. We treat every client as if they deserve all of our attention – which they do! And because of that, we end up working often with repeat clients and their friends and families. And that’s exactly what makes me love what I do.
And about living in Bend? It’s my nest and the home that I love. In my down time, you’ll find me exploring the Central Oregon outdoors with my family, restoring a cabin at Paulina Lake, skiing at Mt. Bachelor and supporting local charities.
Growing up with real estate in her blood, Karen is a true professional full time Realtor focused on Central Oregon and her clients. Realizing that her appreciation of Central Oregon combined with her desire to be of service could lead to a satisfying profession, she set out to create her real estate career in 2004. “I’m privileged to work with my children who have exceptional insight, knowledge, and expertise in real estate and building relationships. We are a close family jointly focused on our goals, the three of us are quite a force in local real estate.”
Karen graduated from UC Santa Barbara and entered pharmaceutical sales learning sales and service from the ground up. Moving to Bend from Southern California in 1995 was an inspiration and an acknowledgement of how wonderful it is to experience life with so much nature surrounding us.

Licensed Broker in the State of Oregon
Growing up in the real estate industry, I understand that diligence and attention to detail are essential to smooth transactions – you can count on me for both. Whether it’s promoting properties through social media and marketing channels, creating attractive and effective brochures, assuring that signs and flyers are ordered and in their proper place or reviewing paperwork for accuracy. Being a newly licensed broker allows me to update you on listing activity, host open houses and show homes. It’s all very exciting!
Karen and Kristin provide the best service in the business … really a dream team! They were very patient with me during the process. I changed my mind many times on what and where to buy. They were very prompt, professional and know the market very well. I couldn’t be happier with my new home. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a new home in Bend.
There is only one thing I could say about the Nest team; they are superb to any other realty group I have ever experienced. Never have I been made to feel some welcomed and any quirk or odd request I made, they did everything possible to accommodate me; within reason of course! They cater to their client’s needs and wants, they know Bend like no other, and they work tirelessly to get you into something you love! They honestly care for their clients. Choose no one else but the Nest Team, otherwise, you’ll regret it!
Great service and always friendly. Nest Bend is very good at helping clients buy and sell homes. They provide honest feedback about seller’s expectations, as well as helping buyers find the right house in the right location. Their knowledge of the Bend real estate market is unsurpassed. And they took care of all the paper work details helping us negotiate contracts for both selling our home and buying a new one. I highly recommend Nest Bend if you are thinking about buying or selling a house in Central Oregon.
Karen, Just a quick note to say thank you for all the top-notch recommendations you gave me for local resources. I’m now working with Allison Glasier on several items and she is fantastic.
