About Karin

I think about Real Estate in the greater Camrose area as “Coming Home.”

I was born and raised in Camrose, and it has always been home to me.  Not saying that I moved far away because I didn’t.  For more than 30 years, I have lived just east of Camrose on a farm with my husband.  I guess you could say I have had the best of both worlds.

I started my work career in Camrose as the Executive Director of the Camrose Association for Community Living at 23.   I “grew” with the organization, learning about business, people, and the importance of giving back to your community.  During my 15 year tenure,  services expanded, the budget increased to over 3.5 million, and staff grew to over 100.  I also worked with a group of fabulous volunteers to raise $2,000,000 to expand the facility—this project connected me to the heart of Camrose and the surrounding area.  I witnessed so much generous giving of time and money.

My pride in our community flourishes.

On the home front, my husband Lee and I were raising two beautiful girls who attended Bawlf school and were actively involved in sports.  Not long after they began school, I decided it was time for a change that gave me the freedom to honor my most important value, family.

I became self-employed as a consultant, educator, facilitator, and mediator.  For the past 16 years, I have been operating Naslund Consulting Group Inc., which morphed into LifeBright Learning across the Western Provinces.  I love to learn and pass on my knowledge to others, and I need to be skilled and knowledgeable in whatever I do. The learning and sharing of information is a natural fit for me.

Through the years, I have learned the skills necessary to work in and on my business, including office management, time management, and organization.  I also teach these skills to others.  Lifelong learning is another value of mine.

My focus is always on improving service to my clients.   So, I learn and strive to do better in whatever I undertake.  In 2010, I completed the Conflict Management Program through the ADR Institute of Alberta and became a Chartered Mediator through the ADR Institute of Canada, experienced in mediation and negotiation – fairness and acceptance. I have a passion for leadership and personal development and have initiated training that aligned with my clients’ needs.  Finally, social media has taken on a life of its own so, since 2018, I have been expanding my understanding of social media engagement and marketing.

I want to use what I have learned to provide quality service and support to the buyers and sellers who choose to work with me as their Realtor.  I am driven and guided by my need to achieve success through hard work.

At the heart of what I do is my life purpose:

To share knowledge and positively impact people’s lives, so they feel empowered and valued.

Followed by my mission:

To empower my real estate clients through education, guidance, and loyalty, so they are confident in their decisions throughout the buying and selling process.

My mission motivates me to find what moves you!

So think of me when you…

→ Are looking for a Real Estate Agent who puts you first?

If you’re planning to buy or sell a home, you want the process to go successfully. If you’re selling, success means getting your property sold quickly and for the highest price possible. If you’re buying, it means finding your next dream home and getting into it, affordably. On top of that, if you’re like most of my satisfied customers, you also want everything to go smoothly, with as little stress as possible.

How can you ensure all that happens? By working with a real estate agent who truly puts you first.

I’m proud to be the real estate agent of choice for those who want a great experience buying or selling a home. My “clients-first” approach means that you’ll be working with a professional who listens to you, provides expert advice, and works hard on your behalf.

When you’re selling: My background along with the support of successful realtors means I know how to showcase your house effectively, market, and promote it so that it attracts qualified buyers and get it SOLD for the highest price. Throughout the process, I’m with you every step of the way, making sure your questions are answered, all the details are handled expertly, and the entire experience is a positive one.

When you’re buying: My expertise in the local market means I can introduce you to homes that meet your criteria – and notify you immediately of brand new listings. I can advise you on what to look for when viewing a home, so you don’t make a catastrophic mistake, and I can arm you with in-depth details on every property you see. When you find a home you fall in love with, I know how to negotiate effectively so you get that property, at the best possible price. In fact, nothing pleases me more than saying, “The home is yours.” 

Whether you’re buying or selling, it’s ultimately about realizing a dream. I understand how much the decision will mean to you. In fact, that’s one of the reasons I became a real estate agent – to help people buy or sell a home while making the process easy and trouble-free.
