More about Karen Wantuck


Mae West once said, "I've done a lot of places and been a lot of things" and if you live long enough, that does seem to be so.
After years spent in the arts (as college instructor, arts critic, journalist writing on topics as diverse as fertility clinics to housing during the Atlanta Olympics), it became evident that though glamorous, these were not lucrative careers.


It was easy to transition from freelance journalist to marketing consultant promoting entrepreneurs to corporations. Along the way, I co-authored a book called Insider's Guide to Metro-Atlanta which sold in bookstores worldwide.

During all of the above, I saved every penny possible and invested in real estate owning ultimately two twelve (12) unit apartment buildings, numerous duplexes, and single family homes. These properties I managed myself and learned a lot about human nature.


It was through real estate that I was able to achieve wealth. And it is that experience, lo these thirty years of buying and selling, that I share now. I've had the opportunity to work with wonderful people from young singles… to seniors who think young. These folks I now consider friends.

I've assisted in buying/selling property on Longboat Key up to Lakewood Ranch, from South of Clark , to North of University...and even down to Northport and Port Charlotte. On a weekly basis I personally visit dozens of homes to keep aware of pricing vs. product and online on a daily basis I review listings and constantly work with my database of buyers and sellers worldwide to find what works for them financially….making dreams come true along the way.


My clients will confirm that it is more a fact than a boast that working with me provides you with someone who uses intelligence and creativity, education and energy to help you achieve your real estate needs at this moment in time.
An Artist's creativity, a Marketing Consultant's savvy, and a Real Estate Investor's education (and yes, I have educated myself for you), these are the skills I bring to the table.
As your real estate pro I use no guess work, rather research and energy and the ability to work with a diverse group of people when handling negotiations, being creative throughout the process, and having an unfailing desire to make it happen for you be that a buying or selling process.
