About Me

Karen Cuskey-Hartman is a 28-year resident of Dallas and has one mission in life – leave the world better than she found it.

Karen first accomplished this mission thru her award-winning philanthropy and marketing. In 2004, she was licensed as a real estate agent, however being an agent and flipping initially took a backseat to her building a well-known advertising agency here in the DFW area. In 2015 though, Karen had a near-death experience and decided life was too short not to follow her real estate dreams. She sold her interest in the agency to join Coldwell-Banker full time and has never looked back!

Karen's marketing experience gives her clients a clear advantage. She sells homes quickly and uses clever tactics to break through the clutter. No 'list it and leave it' going on here. She often partners homes with like-minded, like-hearted brands or charities for the purpose of benefiting both the listing and the brand/charity. For example, Karen has turned an empty listing into an art gallery. The purpose? To cross pollinate high-income databases with the artist. This tactic not only sold the home in less than two weeks (previously on the market for triple digit days), it also sold $40,000 in art.

Karen goes the extra mile for her clients by what she calls 'connecting the dots.' She has been known to find clients not only the perfect home but career opportunities, pets, friends, hairdressers, nannies, house sitters, doctors, lawyers and so forth.

Karen currently sits on the board for Taylor's Gift and volunteers for Big Brothers/Sisters. She is a founding member of Campaign for Kindness, a non-profit focused on igniting systemic change in the way we treat one another. Most recently she has united with five like-minded, like-hearted realtors to form The Live Local Group at Coldwell Banker. Hartman says about the group, 'When one realtor with a great network shows up, good things happen. But when our team of connectors shows up, we can make change and truly help our neighbors and our community as a whole.' Karen and her husband are also grateful givers at Munger Place Church.
