"As a Realtor, I have been creating a social media marketing presence to engage, connect and network to expand my client base and market my listings. Social networking platforms are the lifeblood of how people connect and socialize in today's world."
Prior to her career in real estate, Ms. McKenna held executive leadership roles at luxury fashion brands such as Calvin Klein, BCBG/Max Azria Donna Karan New York and The Camuto Group.

Her marketing and project management skills have transitioned well into the real estate industry and are of direct benefit to her clients.

Karen spent time living in Manhattan and Southern California but has called Greenwich "HOME" for the past 17 years. She is personally a real estate investor and has acquired a portfolio of investment properties with a business partner. "The experience of owning and managing investment properties gives me an in-depth perspective when working with fellow real estate investors."
When she is not spending quality time with family, Karen can be seen about town walking her boxer, Dezi, or volunteering in the community. Karen is a proud sponsor ¿ in partnership with the Greenwich Historical Society ¿ on a series of creative, hands-on workshops. This series is titled "Create in the Barn" and they foster camaraderie and community connection. She has been a judge at The Sand Blast Sculpture Contest held at Tod's Point in Old Greenwich.
