I am a native from Pittsburgh and have degrees in both Economics and Spanish from Boston University. I have had the fortune to live in Mexico for the past 30 years. Throughout those years, my family and I visited San Miguel on a regular basis, developing a warmth for this colonial city. We have been homeowners here for several years.
Through my years in México, I discovered an entrepreneurial spirit. After years in the banking industry, I began an in-house cooking school called Karen’s Kitchen, where I taught the expatriate community many culinary delights of Mexico for nearly 10 years. A job opportunity moved the family to San Antonio, TX, and I decided it was time to take my creative self out of the kitchen and into the entire home. Thus, a love of decorating began to blossom. I began Beckhart Interiors, a Professional Luxury Home Staging business where I successfully worked with Realtors and Clients staging homes from $100,000 to $4,000,000 USD. I hold two staging designations; a Certified Staging Professional (CSP) and the Accredited Staging Professional (ASP).
Through constant work with Realtors during the Staging process, I recognized that for most people, a home is their largest purchase and biggest asset, and decided to turn things up a notch. I hold a Real Estate License in Texas for several years now. This has helped me both in San Miguel and San Antonio bridging the two cities. Customer relationships are my strong point. I strive to truly get to know my clients and put forth my best effort in finding them their dream home.
I am bilingual and bicultural. I enjoy reading, traveling, continued education, and love to cook and entertain my family and friends.
