Karen J. Christie
Luxury Resort Living ™
Karen is a veteran Boston real estate sales professional of over 13 years. She began her successful career with a high-end luxury brokerage firm specializing in the sales and marketing of most of Boston’s major new luxury development projects. She is now associated with the exclusive firm of Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
Counseling clients in the purchase of a home in premier locations in the City of Boston and beyond are Karen’s strong suit. Many of these luxury properties are located within high- end hotel-branded residences that offer white glove services and amenities and maintenance-free resort-style living.
Karen has significant experience with corporate relocation clients assisting Senior Executives, CEO’s of major corporations and businesses to ensure a smooth transition for the executive and family. Many of her clients are from the financial services industry and are investors who seek advice on income-producing/investment properties. Her expertise also extends to working with developers interfacing at all levels to offer consulting services and develop marketing strategies tailored for each property. Her knowledge of current trends and perspective on the market and real estate industry, in general, is invaluable to everyone she works with.
The portfolio of premier buildings where she possesses extensive expertise includes Residences at The Intercontinental, Residences at Rowes Wharf/Boston Harbor Hotel, Battery Wharf, Twenty Two Liberty and Fifty Liberty Condominiums, all positioned along Boston’s Waterfront. In the Back Bay, she has a strong presence at The Residences at Mandarin Oriental in Back Bay, and The Four Seasons Residences, Heritage on the Garden and The Carlton House/Ritz Carlton Residences located in Boston’s Back Bay along the iconic Public Garden. She also travels extensively to locations in warmer, tropical climates, both in the U.S. and Caribbean locations, in search of exclusive properties and potential development opportunities for her clients.
Her accomplishments and accolades from her clients are inspired by the key beliefs that set her apart: knowledge of the market, maintain perspective on the current trends, cultivate relationships built on trust and respect, provide transparency throughout the transaction and always maintain integrity. The real estate industry has evolved into the digital age, but there is a firm belief that the personal bonds formed are irreplaceable!
A New England native, Karen graduated Cum Laude with a B.S. in Business Administration from Northeastern University-University College. Prior to real estate, she was in administration at a major global law firm based in downtown Boston, Washington, DC, and Silicone Valley. This vital experience provided her a natural segue to real estate and a deep understanding of legal aspects associated with a transaction. Karen is licensed in the States of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. She is a member of the National Association of Realtors, the Greater Boston Real Estate Board, Cape Cod Association of Realtors, and Rhode Island Association of Realtors.
