Meet Karen Benner

I love working with people, so I have combined my past experience as a Mortgage Loan Originator with my love of people, houses, and decorating and have found my perfect job helping my clients with all of their real estate needs. Starting my Real Estate Career in 2013, I have helped hundreds of clients buy or sell. 70% of my clients are referral based because of my strong ethics, relationships, and connections, which gives me a competitive edge over my competition.

I am dedicated to my clients and always strive to serve them to the best of my ability. I have an outgoing personality and I work diligently on my client’s behalf to ensure the utmost customer satisfaction whether buying or selling. My goal is to move you through the real estate transaction as seamlessly as possible. I also graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Communications that serves me well when negotiating my clients’ needs.

Before joining Southern Homes of the Carolinas, I was a top agent with RE/MAX Oak Crest Realty. I was the #1 Agent in my area in 2017 and have continually been one of the top 5 agents since 2015. My RE/MAX awards include 2014 – Executive Club, 2015 – 100% Club, 2016, 2017 and 2018 – Platinum Club, and I was added to the RE/MAX Hall of Fame in 2018, when I was also featured in Top Agent Magazine as one of the top 500 agents in the country.

Some of the things that are important to me are:

  • to listen actively to your needs
  • to be open and transparent
  • to focus on what’s important to you
  • to continue a lasting friendship beyond our business relationship
  • to give back to my community through volunteer service

I currently reside in Harrisburg, NC just north of Charlotte after relocating from Indiana. When I am not selling real estate, I enjoy spending time with my fiance and our 7 children combined. I love working out, hiking, and cooking. In fact, years ago I published a cookbook!

My clients are my friends. That is my heart. I would love to help you find your next home, sell your current home, and make all of your real estate dreams become a reality! I serve Cabarrus, Mecklenburg, and Union Counties. From the city to the suburbs, I’ve got you covered! Connect with me today!
