Karen Greenwood named 2018 Michigan Realtors Realtor® of the Year
As a prominent figure in the Metro Detroit real estate market Karen Greenwood has utilized her extensive experience and true passion for the industry to become a top producer for several years running. As a full-time Realtor with Coldwell Banker Weir Manuel, since 2000, Karen attributes her continued success to building relationships, both with clients and other Real Estate professionals. Karen considers education – both clients and other real estate professionals – an important part of her role as a REALTOR®.
As a successful full-time Realtor for more than 20 years representing over 1,100 clients, I have learned the importance of communication. Buying or selling a home is stressful and my passion is to pay attention to every detail and make it a breeze for my clients. From the first time meeting a new client, during the entire real estate process, and for as long as they need, I'm always available and there for my clients.
Named Michigan Realtor of the Year in 2018 and being the No. 1 agent for my firm in 2019, I've had great success working with both Buyers and Sellers. I love negotiating the best deals for all property types: single family homes, waterfront properties, multi-families, land & condos. Whether you're a first-time home buyer or a seasoned homeowner, my experience and expertise make me an ideal choice for your real estate needs.
I pride myself in my service and dedication to my clients. Once you decide to choose me as your Realtor and we begin working together, you'll know you made the right choice. My knowledge and experience can guide you through the real estate process and help you with all of the details before, during and after the sale. The majority of my clients continue working with me for all of their future real estate needs, even after they've left the closing table. Real and reliable services are the reason my clients continue to work with me, year after year.
I look forward to helping you open the door to your new home!

Karen is a wonderful person to work with and an expert realtor who guided us through the purchase of our first home and most recently the sale of our home in Ferndale. Both times she was consistently easy to reach and helped us find exactly what we wanted both times we were in the market. Karen never tried to rush us throughout the process and made us feel like her top priority. Selling your house can be stressful and she is a pro at guiding clients, can't recommend enough. Highly recommend her services if you're looking for a realtor that has your best interests at heart, she helped us hold out for what we were looking for each time we have worked with her. Thank you Karen!
Karen is amazing. My wife and I found our 20 year plus home and Karen did everything in her power to make the sale happen. There were many obstacles with the purchase of our house and she was amazing and doing what had to be done to make it all work. She always looked out for what was best for us and didn’t just try to make a sale. She also sold our house in two days which was amazing. Karen is the hardest working person I know and I understand why she was voted #1 realtor in Michigan. As a small business owner myself I strive to have her work ethic and determination. I will continue to recommend Karen to anyone and everyone I know who needs help with buying or selling a home.
We were so lucky to get you as our realtor. You made our move across the country less stressful for us. Your knowledge of the area, key decisions to consider, and guidance helped make the best decision - we love our house! Without a doubt, we will use you as our realtor for any future purchases in Michigan.
To future clients, Karen is responsive, reliable, and knowledgeable. She ensures her clients are aware of what to expect and is transparent throughout the process. She is one of the best in the business.
