A little about me

Originally from Konstanz, a harbor town in Germany, Karin relocated to  Englewood in 2000. Her travels in the early 1990' brought her and Jan, her husband to Florida. They fell in love with our beautiful area. 

In Germany, Karin worked for 15 years as a pharmaceutical sales representative for Glaxo Smith Kline and Solvey Pharmaceuticals. She brings many years of sales and marketing experience to her real estate career. 

Upon her arrival in Englewood, FL, Karin worked for the largest Immigration Law Firm in Sarasota. After getting her feet wet, she wanted to work independently again; therefore, she decided to run her own business and started a mortgage brokerage from scratch. 

Karin helped many international and relocation clients achieve their dream of owning a vacation home in Florida. She seamlessly guided her customers through the mortgage process from loan pre-qualification to the closing. In 2003 Karin earned her Real Estate License.  Her comprehensive knowledge of the home buying experience from the lending side makes her uniquely qualified to help her customers navigate the home buying process. 

2013 Karin and her husband Jan started their own Real Estate Company and  Bay Breeze Intl. Realty was born. Her commitment to excellence, integrity, and positive customer experience is her main goal. 

Karin offers Mortgage Origination to add value to her existing and new clients. She can help you with your Mortgage Needs.  Karin Heitmann NMLS #2106245 with Rocket Mortgage NMLS #3030.
