Karen Trepton - Lake Country Partners


Real Estate found me. Originally, I started my career in the hospitality industry, working as a sales manager for a large hotel chain. During this time, my husband worked for a large corporation. We moved every 18 - 24 months. After a decade of constant moving, I was encouraged by friends, family, and my real estate agents, to move into real estate as a career. I did, and 25+ years later, I have not regretted it.  Helping friends and family find their dream homes is honorable, satisfying work. I work with young people buying their first version of the American dream, couples moving into larger homes to accommodate a growing family, and empty nesters downsizing into a more carefree lifestyle. I especially love helping clients buy and sell lake property. 

My husband and I met at Luther College, in Decorah, IA and have been married for over 30 years. We have lived all over the country but decided to raise our three boys in our beloved Midwest. We have been so fortunate to raise them in Southeast Wisconsin, specifically in Lake Country. I was fortunate to have been raised in a lake home and to have raised my own children in the same lifestyle. It’s one of the things that makes Lake Country so special!
As a 4th generation native, I share the love of this unique area with all of you who call Wisconsin, home. As a family, we enjoy sailing, skiing, and all things sports. We are fortunate that our sons have all found wonderful life partners and are settled here, in Lake Country.

My goal for my clients is simple, it's to put their needs first, to provide the best service and communication possible throughout our transaction. Whether buying or selling, guiding them through every stage of the transaction in a professional manner that leads to a successful closing is key. 

Together with the number one real estate company in Wisconsin, I look forward to putting my skills and resources to work for you.
