Karen Watson

“I’ve always known real estate. I was explaining 48 hour clauses when I was 10 years old”

Having grown up in a real estate family it seemed only natural for Karen to pursue a career in settlements. Upon beginning her TAFE Cert IV studies at the age of 19 Karen began working as a receptionist in one of Perth’s leading settlement agencies of the time. It wasn’t long before she was working her own files and progressing very quickly to the position of senior conveyancer of the firm within only 12 months … all this whilst continuing to provide assistance to the licensee as well as training the junior staff members! But resting upon laurels is not a path taken by the ambitious. After achieving her settlement agents’ license at the age of 21 Karen promptly took on the position of licensee / director of a small suburban agency. Within a short period of time, she had purchased and begun successfully running the business herself and would continue to do so before taking a short time away from the industry in 2003 to start a family. When she returned to conveyancing, Karen stepped straight into the Licensee role of a large metropolitan agency before again putting her career pursuits on temporary hold for a family focus. But now – she’s back! And we’re so very excited to say that these days, Karen is a part of our growing iSettlements team! She brings an extensive knowledge base that comes with over 20 years of industry experience as well as a bubbly personality to match. The combination is a true asset to both the office and, more importantly, to the many satisfied clients for whom Karen dedicatedly assists through the settlement maze.
