"Enthusiastic, extremely knowledgeable, friendly" and "does whatever it takes to get the job done" are words that Karen's clients have used to describe working with her.

"Seeing my clients smile at the end of a sales or buying transaction and hearing the words, "Well done," is what I strive for. That is why I chose to work for Dream Town, -- we think alike and Dream Town gives me the excellent professional resources I need to get the job done." Karen has found that recommendations from her past clients are her best marketing tools.

Karen brings her real estate skills to Dream Town from having a successful career with other agencies. Prior to that she enjoyed a successful career in specialty toy sales as Owner/ President of Richard Swan Associates, Northbrook IL, managing annual sales of $7 million to high-end retailers. With extensive experience in management, sales, customer service and technology, Karen is at home in the real estate world. Having lived in the Chicago area for most of her life, she is a great resource person.

Knowing her clients are busy people, Karen strives to bring them the best sales or buying opportunities in the least amount of time, with all the details spelled out clearly.

Karen and her husband David love exploring Chicago's diverse communities, taking in concerts at Ravinia and Millennium Park or spending time with their six children. A graduate of Colorado State University, Karen received her Masters of Arts in Speech Pathology from the University of Houston. She and her family attend Willow Creek Community Church, North Shore.

What My Clients Have To Say

  • Lisa Fleming
    Chicago

    Karen was very easy to work with and she came prepared with information to share about houses in the area and gave advise on setting an asking price. She walked thru the whole process with me and made it very easy to understand. I would work with Karen again. She is very patient with you and gives the best advise on the property. She is also a great negotiator. She really looks out for her clients and tries to get the best price possible.

  • Craig Fairbairn

    The help and sincerity shown by you during a very hard time for our family was greatly appreciated. It is never easy to move a parent out of their house and into alternative living. Karen you showed patience and were extremely helpful in providing help in finding repairs to an old house in need of some sprucing up. Thanks again.

    My wife and I did the classic empty-nester thing of selling the big suburban house and moving to a condo in the city. Our agent, Karen Gilbert knew exactly the kinds of questions to ask. This lady knows her stuff.
