We have another agent interview with Karen Agar, our Transaction Coordinator
We’re back once again to have a conversation with Transaction Coordinator Karen Agar, who is here to share her story and talk about why she chose to join the Dave Hooke Team.
Why this career, and why this team?
“I joined the team in October 2018, so a little over two and a half years ago. I’ve been in real estate for probably about 13 years. I was in new construction for a time, and then I got my real estate license. I spent some time with another brokerage but eventually moved over here.”
You’ve always impressed me with your incredible work ethic and attention to detail. You’re one of the backbones of our operations team, so tell us a little about what you do for the team?
“I am our list-side transaction coordinator and our listing manager, so I process all of our listings and make sure everything gets on the market accurately and quickly. I also handle everything from contract to close, whether that be inspection negotiations, coordinator settlement, or anything else.”
What would you say is your favorite thing about your job and the team as a whole?
“About a month ago, we had a crop of empty nesters all in one week. They were all selling their homes here and moving closer to their families. I thought about it like all of my birdies flying away; I just really like helping people get to the next step.
“My favorite thing about the team is our core values and team mentality. Nobody is too big to take a minute and help someone out. It feels like a family all the way through.”
What’s your biggest challenge right now?
“Right now, we’re in a busier season in the industry. There’s a lot of balls to juggle, and I have to make sure that everything gets from point A to Z.”
As you think about the future, what are you excited about for your career?
“I’m excited that I’m on the path to have a career. My past positions have all been jobs; there was not enough traction to move up. I have that here, and it’s exciting to be a part of.”
If you or someone you know wants to learn more about Karen’s story or what we do here on the team, we are an open book, so we’d love to have a conversation with you. Contact us at (717) 216-0860 or Dave@DaveHookeTeam.com.
