Meet My Team

In 2019 Karen partnered with long-time friend and colleague Vicky Noufal to form the Platinum Group Real Estate Team. This high producing team is comprised almost exclusively of women and moms (and 1 very brave man). Our in-house team serves Virginia, Maryland, Washington DC and West Virginia, providing our team members with a high level of service and support with some of the most competitive splits available in the industry. Our national team is rapidly expanding across the US and provides marketing support, systems, training and high-level masterminds for our team members with an attractive split and cap available for all production levels. Platinum Group team members average 10 years of experience each and members see on average 184% growth in their business within 2-3 years of joining the team.

 I have spent thousands in other coaching platforms, but the simplicity and efficiency of this program, coming from Karen’s personal experience and success is perfect for anyone willing to follow a plan and succeed in real estate.
