In 1987, my husband Bill and I moved to Placer County from the Chicago area. We have lived in Rocklin and Roseville, and for the last 20 years we’ve been residents of Granite Bay. Naturally, I’ve grown to specialize in these three areas because of my personal experience and love of these cities; I know their values, amenities and inventory better than most, and my clients can count on it.

Since 1988, I have been recognized as a top producing sales agent with Lyon Real Estate--consistently in the top 10% and is a Senior Executive Associate with Lyon.

Having earned both a CRS and GRI designation in residential real estate, my goal has always been to be a knowledgeable, experienced, and reliable resource for my colleagues and clients alike.  A former educator and graduate of the University of Illinois, it is with great pleasure that I teach and guide my clients through every step of a transaction--it's rewarding for them and incredibly satisfying for me! I am extremely pleased to be a member of the real estate profession.  I LOVE what I do and I especially love working with people!

Karen has sold us 3 homes in this area. We trust her and we value her expertise and experience and her integrity. Karen actively advertised the home. She sold us this property originally. She is great to work with and again her honesty is refreshing and she is extremely knowledgeable of the market and the process.

Karen has been a great resource for all of our real estate needs. She provided valuable and insightful help when we moved to the area 7 years ago and has helped us through the purchasing and selling of a second home. She is professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and efficient. We will entrust all of our real estate needs to Karen. We love working with her.

Karen was recommended to us by our previous agent and she did truly outstanding job. Karen clearly understood our needs and expectations, selected and showed us more than 30 houses in one week, recommended trustworthy and very professional inspectors, did smooth and effortless final negotiation and closing of the deal. We strongly recommend Karen.

You were always time sensitive to issues and remained on top of everything in a kind, smart and professional manner with a "we will get it done attitude"!

I would refer you to anyone buying or selling!


Karen Martin was our agent when we bought our present home. She saw to every detail on our behalf. Had it not been for her diligence, several problems would have been overlooked until it was our responsibility to fix them. She communicated these problems and negotiated resolutions. We are very grateful for her assistance. We highly recommend her. She works day and night to get every detail taken care of for her clients!
