Please allow me to introduce myself; I am Karen Overstreet, a full-time professional REALTOR. My real estate career began in the 1990s. I have been with Advantage Realty for three years.
I believe that my devotion to God has made my real estate career and life successful.
My family consists of my husband, Luther, 2 wonderful children, and six grandchildren with one more arriving in 2015!
One of the most exciting things about real estate for me is seeing the expression on each individual’s face when we preview a property and they exclaim, “This is the one”!
My years of real estate have allowed me the opportunity to become a Lifetime member of the Multi-Million Dollar Club.
So, when you are looking for that parcel of property, give me a call at Tifton’s most professional real estate office, Advantage Realty!
