For the best part of the last 10 yrs, Karen has been a 'stay at home mum'. Karen’s personal interest in Real Estate came at an early age, as did her interest in Agriculture - which is why she initially pursued a career in that industry, completing her Certificate IV in Agriculture at the Longreach Pastoral College in 2000-2001 and working on cattle stations in north Queensland for a number of years before becoming a mum. Since becoming a parent, Karens values changed as did her pursuit for a better and less labour intense career path, which is what lead her back to the Real Estate industry. Karens Grandfather & her mother, together have bought and sold a number of properties throughout South Australia for a number of years, both rural and residential for investment & personal use. I am also a registered Stable Foreman with TasRacing, to Troy Blacker - Troy Blacker Racing in Longford. Troy is also Karens fiancé and they own a few race horses together as well this being his chosen career path.
Karen loves getting home to her family and animals everyday - Karen enjoys going to races & sports meets catching up with Owners, fellow Mums & close friends.
