about me

Karen began her financial career at GE headquarters working in the Corporate Treasury department. After 8 years, she decided to take some time off to raise her 3-year-old daughter and fraternal twin sons.
Reliable and well-experienced with finances, she moved up to the mortgage arena. After a few years, Karen decided she wanted to be a broker and opened her own mortgage company. “A Better Choice Mortgage” in Paradise Green, Stratford, ran for 10 years.
After the recession of 2008, she worked for a variety of clients as a mortgage banker. She began working at Total Mortgage in November 2018. Karen is married with three adult children, and is now the proud grandmother of triplets.

Karen was always there to answer emails or texts. She is very knowledgeable in what she does. If there was ever an instance where she wasn't sure of something that I asked, she was always willing to reach out to get the reaponse for me. I am totally happy to have been able to work with her. She is truly amazing. Thank you for all you do.

Working with Karen was a great experience from start to finish. She was timely and knowledgeable. I really appreciated how she explained everything to me in simple terms, no fancy mortgage lingo I couldn't understand. She made the application process easy and stress-free by clearly explaining what we needed, where to send it, when she would be following-up, etc. Whenever I reached out to her, she would respond within minutes! Karen, thank you for your high level of service!

Karen Karker offered us one of the best interest rate when we applied for mortgage. She was so transparent and honest with us through out the process. With her help we were able to close on our house. Now we can say that we are proud owner of a house in the United States of America. Thank you Ms Kk for all your tremendous efforts.
