Karen Izzo


Karen Izzo has been serving clients in the Santa Clara and Santa Cruz counties for the past five years. Karen goes the extra professional mile for clients. She offers a full service menu backed by the strongest team of Bay Area professionals.  For sellers, pricing and negotiating is key.  Prior to listing their home, her clients receive home staging consultation to increase profits and decrease time on the market.  Clean-up-crew coordination, financial guidance, and a team of real estate experts that expedite all seller transactions.  Buyers receive the same professional care and dedication, with benefits in negotiations and complete knowledge of the inventory.

Specializing in the increasingly popular Los Gatos Mountains, Karen brings 20 years as mountain resident, knowledge of county permits and processes, and a comprehensive understanding of the unique mountain attributes.  In addition to her mountain expertise, she has a vast knowledge of the inter-workings of Santa Clara County.  With the exception of 10 years, Karen has lived in the Valley and possesses a unique perspective of the Valley’s sophistication.  Whether clients seek private or public schools, appreciate parks and nearby clubs, require easy commutes, or enjoy a specific style of neighborhood living, Karen is able to direct her clients to the perfect location.

Karen has achieved some of the most prestigious honors in Real Estate.  Making sales happen isn’t new to Karen.  Her focus on exceptional results and expertise to maintain strong relationships began 12 years prior when she entered the sales and marketing field.  As late as 1999 companies recognized Karen for her highest gross sales margins, as well as her skills managing people.  She brings all these abilities now to serve her clients, working sometimes 14-hour days to meet their expectations.  Much of her success rests in her unwavering focus on families.  She understands that whether buying or selling a home, it can be stressful.  Karen provides the experience to make the transition smooth and the transactions trouble-free.  She takes unnecessary burdens off clients’ shoulders, maintains impeccable communications, provides fearless leadership, and possesses the tireless energy to keep the toughest transactions on task.  And, she does it all with sincerity, exceptional professionalism, and a consummate smile.

Beyond professional endeavors, Karen gives back to her community through volunteerism and financial contributions. Since its formation 8 years ago, she has supported the Loma Public Education Fund (LPEF)—a non-profit organization that enriches local mountain schools.  To prove her dedication to her mountain clients and loyalty to her community, Karen has continued to give to LPEF despite her own child attending a private school in San Jose. It’s at St. Mary’s where Karen coordinates the ministry for the homeless at Commercial Street Inn.   In its 11th year, Karen is Board President of Girls On The Run Silicon Valley—a non-profit organization focused on strengthening youth’s character and physical fitness.  Karen not only believes in the quality of life for her clients, but she ensures it through her personal contributions to health, education, and the homeless.
