Karen McCarthy: CBDP-Telluride

Karen McCarthy's unique approach in fostering successful outcomes for her Telluride area real estate clients is informed by her extensive financial services and wealth management background and complemented by her knowledge of and passion for the Telluride area and lifestyle.
In her former career, Karen rose to VP positions at such firms as EF Hutton, Kidder Peabody, and US Trust, serving discerning high net worth individuals and families. The skills she garnered in those roles provide her an edge in mining for and assessing real estate values, negotiating large and complex transactions, and successfully marketing and positioning properties (she once launched a successful marketing department for her US Trust team which managed $3B in assets).
Karen believes that a robust and targeted approach to positioning and marketing luxury properties is paramount, especially in today's environment. Her focus and experience in this realm, coupled with Coldwell Banker's powerful Global Network, serves her in utilizing every tool available, including but not limited to targeted social media marketing, superior professional photography and videos, ariel drone photos and videos, as well as features in media publications. Karen's listings have appeared in publications such as Mansion Magazine, Mansion Global, Shelter Magazine, Realtor.com , Global Luxury Magazine's 'Home of the Week", MusicTech, San Francisco Break, Newsbreak and others.

An avid skier, hiker, water adventurer, and active participant in the area's cultural offerings such as the Bluegrass, Jazz, Blues, and Film Fests, Karen is grateful to live in such an unparalleled unique community. Her thirst for the area's rich offerings gives her the insight necessary to properly tailor her client's real estate needs to their lifestyle.
