Waterfront Investment Properties quickly grew beyond its local roots and now serves buyers, sellers, and financial intermediaries throughout the globe.

Karen has worked with me on many investments over the years and I cannot recommend her highly enough. She has a deep knowledge of the waterfront industry and is powerfully connected to everyone. She works harder than most and handles everything with grace and integrity.
