Anyone can have a good year in an industry. Your realtor, like you, has a profession they are dedicated to and passionate about.

A decade of success is a serious achievement. Almost 30 years is a landmark, especially in an area as rapidly changing as the real estate market.

For buyers, sellers, and investors, Pat Karley’s track record sets a new benchmark for what you should expect from a realtor. Whether searching for homes for sale or looking to make a lucrative investment, you need to know you’re in capable hands.

Pat, an Associate Broker at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties in North Dakota, aims to be the professional you entrust with your future or current home: “I like the challenge that real estate offers,” she says. “It is so satisfying to find the perfect property for each client. I do my best to make that journey enjoyable.”

With experience as diverse as The Peace Garden State’s geography, she shares the secrets behind 20-plus years of gratifying experiences and idyllic transactions.

Early enrichment

Many realtors come into the industry from another sector, but rarely is their skillset so transferrable. Before she entered real estate, Pat was a journalist. The proficiencies she developed proved invaluable when finding homes for sale and connecting with clients.

“My years of experience and background as a journalist make me unique,” she explains. “It helps me and my clients because I am experienced at research and a good listener.”

Journalism invariably involves empathizing with people to discover their true story. A world away, that aptitude thrives in Pat Karley and aligns with her real estate philosophy.

“Buying or selling homes can be a very personal life experience—I try to be aware of that,” she says. “My ultimate goal is to help people get where they need to go.”

Eclectic experience

It’s all good to hear someone’s ambitions, but if a realtor doesn’t have the intuitive insight to achieve them, their career won’t last very long. A crucial factor in Pat’s success is the variety of homes for sale and property purchases she has tackled. She always has a solid starting point for the next home.

“In nearly 30 years as a real estate agent/broker, I have taken care of virtually every housing situation imaginable,” she outlines. “Just ask me about that time I sold a church with bats in the belfry!”

Throughout her storied career, Pat has sold everything from agricultural land and farmsteads to city homes and recreational lakeside properties, consistently achieving Top Producer status within her company. While the homes for sale have differed, her aim to provide high-quality representation that prioritizes client interests has remained the same.

A fruitful future

Every effective realtor needs a corresponding brokerage. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties is among the largest real estate agencies in the region and puts a premium on excellence that transcends a transaction.

“We are a full-service company and describe ourselves as ‘Forever Agents’ for our clients,” Pat explains. “We do our best to make buying and selling as easy and pleasurable as possible both before and especially after the sale.”

The brokerage has perks to complement these high standards. Have you ever wanted to dream up a home and buy it in the same place? Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Premier Properties has a sister company, Heritage Homes, one of the region’s most prestigious custom home builders.

Pat Karley has done almost everything in an industry that continually throws curveballs. She has sold and bought investment properties in her personal life, giving her first-hand appreciation for her client’s journey. One unwavering belief has kept her moving from success to success: real estate can be enjoyable if you have the right realtor.
