Local Expertise. Global Connections.
An authority on Austin real estate since 1990, Karen Cunningham’s intimate knowledge of local inventory, neighborhoods, and waterfront properties is only matched by her lifelong passion for helping others. Karen’s experience as a Registered Nurse profoundly impacted her subsequent real estate career, and she credits her exceptional listening ability to her work in medicine.
Genuinely focused on her clients, Karen strives to understand each individual’s unique needs, while delivering a personal and seamless buying and selling experience. She always puts the needs of her clients first, and she believes that listening is the key to building lasting relationships. An exceptional communicator, clients note Karen’s natural ability to negotiate win-win outcomes skillfully.
A Lake Austin resident herself, Karen is keenly aware of the intricacies involved in marketing and selling waterfront homes. She is tenacious by nature and proactively solves challenges by anticipating potential issues before they occur. Throughout her career, Karen has built a network of fellow professionals so that she remains informed of “coming soon” and pocket listings in Austin’s competitive real estate market.
Karen and her daughter, Sonya, are one of the most powerful teams in Austin real estate, backed by the prestigious Kuper Sotheby’s name. Together, they complement one another’s strengths and deliver a five-star experience to each client they serve.
At home, Karen and her husband enjoy lake living, traveling, cooking, being a grandparent, and reading. Several times a year, they escape to Santa Fe where they savor the area’s delicious food and outdoor activities.
