A little about me

Karin, originally from Konstanz, Germany, moved to Englewood in 2000. In the early 1990s, she and her husband, Jan, traveled to Florida and were captivated by its stunning beauty. She worked for 15 years as a pharmaceutical sales representative in Germany, representing companies such as Glaxo Smith Kline and Solvay Pharmaceuticals. Her extensive sales and marketing background has proven invaluable in her current career in real estate.

After immigrating from Germany to the United States in 2000, she worked for a prestigious Immigration Law Firm in Sarasota. She gained valuable experience throughout her tenure but strongly desired to work for herself again. 

In 2003, Karin acquired her real estate license. In addition, she obtained her mortgage broker license and started her own mortgage broker business. 

This expertise provides her with a unique advantage and significantly enhances her understanding of the financial aspect of the home-buying process. With this knowledge, she can provide her clients with superior guidance and support, ensuring they have the best possible home-purchasing experience.

Her experience has helped numerous international and relocation clients achieve their dream of owning a vacation home in Florida. Karin's proficiency is skillfully guiding her customers through the home-buying process to a successful closing. Whether you are selling or buying a home, she will guide you all the way to closing with experience, support, and compassion. 

Karin, a licensed Realtor/Broker for over 20 years, co-founded Bay Breeze International Realty with her husband Jan in 2013. She is committed to providing exceptional service, maintaining high standards of integrity, and ensuring positive customer experiences. She is also a member of the Sarasota Global Business Council.

Karin and her spouse reside in Rotonda West. They enjoy kayaking, biking, gardening, and practicing yoga during their free time.
