Karen Trepton was diligent, insightful, patient and thoughtful. She was flexible in accommodating our home search as new ideas and plans surfaced in our minds. We felt that we were being assisted with consummate professionalism.
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.

What clients are saying...
This was our second move with Karen Trepton and we are as happy this time as we were the first. Karen is always professional, timely with information and help, and she always goes the extra mile in making a move stress free. She stays in close contact and you always know exactly what needs to be done and how to accomplish what needs to be done. We certainly give her 5 stars and would readily recommend her to others.
Karen spent two plus years with us to help us find the right place for us. Her knowledge of the industry and the area is first rate. Plus, her always professional, quick responses and positive approach made the process and ultimately our closing as easy and considerate of our needs as possible. 5 stars!
Karen was terrific. She pushed our sale through and covered all the details. Did a great job. Knows the market well.
Great contact w/all the information - Thank s so MUCH ***
Karen was wonderful. Always supportive through a difficult transaction with an not so cooperative buyer.
Actually, we'd give Karen SIX stars! She was simply awesome. She dialed in to exactly what we were looking for then worked tirelessly to find the perfect match. Karen creatively navigated multiple tricky issues smoothly and confidently, and kept important details in front of all parties to assure the deal done quickly and to everyone's satisfaction. We could not be happier with the job Karen did to find the perfect home for our family.
What a dream come true! In this tough market we were able to secure a lake property in walking distance to downtown. Karen went the extra mile to make sure we were always amongst the first to view a new listing. Now we're neighbors!
Every step of the way, Karen was amazing at helping me get my home sold. From the time she knocked on my door, to see if I would be interested in selling, through the painless closing. Karen is a real professional!
As first time home buyers, Karen led us gracefully and skillfully through every step of the home searching and buying process. Her depth of experience in the field is extremely evident. She responded to our messages and phone calls quickly, and was so wonderful to work with. We feel extremely grateful to have worked with such a seasoned professional during our first real estate venture, and would recommend Karen without hesitation to anyone in need of realty services - she's the best!
