Karen Adelson - Barrett Sotheby's International Realty


Karen Adelson has been a real estate agent for over 25 years. She specializes in the markets of the western suburbs. Karen represents both buyer and seller clients, and brings her enthusiasm for the area to her work.

Her passion within real estate is education people, which she feels aids in reducing the stress of the home-buying process. She invests as much time as her clients need in order to feel happy and comfortable with their ultimate choice. Her time has not only developed into long-lasting partnerships, but friendships, with clients. 

Similarly, she invests her time with sellers, making them feel comfortable with the services she provides to market their properties. She feels the home-selling process takes a team and has developed relationships with trusted stagers, photographers, graphic artists, builders, painters and even professional home declutterers. Karen has consistently been a very successful broker in her transactions with both buyers and sellers.
