Karen Drewek is a native Texan who grew up in a military family that relocated regularly. Her family didn’t live on U.S. Air Force bases, rather they bought and sold homes in each new city. Karen loved the adventure of discovering new neighborhoods, homes, floor plans and amenities, and had no problem making new friends. After graduating from Texas State University with a BBA, she began a successful 20-year career in residential mortgage lending. Karen later decided to transition to a career as a residential real estate agent because she knew her extensive mortgage-lending experience would provide her clients a competitive edge. After all, she had been financing properties, working with underwriters, conveying to agents what would or would not be allowed on the Texas Earnest Money Contract, reviewing property appraisals and tackling title issues for many years. Karen carefully guides each of her clients through their real estate transaction and all its moving parts with comfort and expertise.
Passionate about residential real estate as her full-time career, Karen offers savvy negotiating skills and a comfort level in the industry that is beneficial to everyone from first-time home buyers to seasoned homeowners. Beyond real estate, she co-owns a successful, 30-year-old business, Hardwood Floors By Design, Inc., with her husband Tim. The company’s workmanship is present in homes by Mark Hayes Signature Homes, Huntington Homes and many other builders across North Texas. Karen and Tim are active supporters of Bible Study Fellowship International, where she is a group leader, the SPCA of Texas and Plan International.
