WELCOME KAREN ESTUPINAN

                          Terrie O’Connor, President of Terrie O’Connor Realtors, is pleased to announce that Karen Estupinan has joined the Upper Saddle River group of Terrie O’Connor Realtors as a Sales Associate. 

Karen holds a BS in Accounting from Montclair State University. Prior to working in real estate, she worked twelve years in the Title Insurance industry. This experience gave her good insight into the real estate closing process. In addition, she owned her own accounting/consulting business for fifteen years. She saved thousands of dollars for her clients by meticulously monitoring their expenses and recommending various approaches to improve their bottom line. Karen hopes to utilize this level of due diligence to help her clients maximize their buying/selling experience. 

Karen is a thorough researcher, very detail oriented and a patient listener. It’s important for her to have a good understanding of what her client is searching for. She provides the energy and enthusiasm to see that through. This will put the client in the ultimate position for achieving their dream of buying or selling a home. 

On a personal front, Karen has been a resident of River Vale for 23 years. She grew up in Queens, NY. She and her husband have been married for almost 30 years and have three beautiful children.

This scholastic enrichment program consisted of bringing specialized courses to over 500 hundred students during a six week school break period. Karen also voluntarily taught religious education to children for over ten years at our Lady of Mercy Church. 

“Buying and selling a home is an emotional monumental experience for families. As a homeowner for 30 years, I understand what questions need to be addressed about houses. As a mother and active community member, I clearly appreciate the dynamics of good schools and strong communities. Having been a resident and business owner in Bergen County, I can offer advice on a wide variety of concerns that a client may have about these neighborhoods. My proficiency on details and my tenacity for getting a client the best possible deal, along with my business experience offers the client a one stop shopping approach, where their buying/selling experience can be maximized!”
