Meet The Team

Karen Medved

General Partner

Karen has been a perennial, top-producing, award-winning real estate agent for twenty-one years and counting. After her career first blossomed in both Lake Hollywood & Santa Monica, it organically expanded to everywhere in between as her loyal past clients have insisted on her expert representation wherever they wish to buy, sell or invest.

With an accomplished background in multiple unit restaurant operations as well as private jet catering, Karen’s expertise in developing & executing systems to achieve exceptional client satisfaction from some of the world’s most discriminating clientele was an ideal foundation for a career in Los Angeles real estate. Her approachable, down-to-earth demeanor and ability to negotiate with skill & diplomacy have earned her a reputation as one of the most professional, well-respected agents among her colleagues.

These days, to maintain balance in her busy life with her structural engineer husband and two active teenage daughters, you may bump into her early one-morning hiking near one of her “offices” - up Fryman Canyon or around Lake Hollywood - focused on staying fit for playing or coaching soccer, a lifelong avocation.
