Karen Sferra

Sales Associate Oldwick office

With over three decades of wide-ranging real estate experience, Karen provides highly knowledgeable, friendly and finely-tuned service that addresses the specific needs of her buyers and sellers. Before joining Turpin, Karen was a legal assistant specializing in real estate where she gained valuable knowledge about the transaction process. She also has over 10 years of experience handling every aspect of a real estate office. Tasks in that role ran the gamut from compliance with the New Jersey Real Estate Commission to highly effective property marketing techniques. Karen’s thorough understanding of marketing strategies and complex housing regulations, combined with outstanding communication and organizational skills, has earned her a reputation as a respected professional in the community.

Her genuine interest in architecture began in the 1980s when she worked alongside her father, a master craftsman of period construction and renovations whose work was featured in Colonial Homes magazine. Karen quickly developed a trained eye for quality design and superior details in houses. An enduring love of antique homes is reflected in the historic homes Karen has lived in—an 18th century schoolhouse in Mendham Township and a circa 1872 church manse in Long Valley. Renovating a 250-plus year old stone and brick Colonial in Mansfield Township with her husband, Kevin, of 28 years, was a labor of love. Today they live in the Pittstown section of Union Township. As an area resident, she can offer firsthand advice about schools, commuting and a variety of local amenities, events and activities.

In additional to activities such as snow skiing, hiking, antiquing, genealogy, traveling and reading, Karen is a member of the National Wildlife Federation and the New Jersey Audubon Society. So interested, in fact, in her favorite pastimes of birding and nature study, Karen’s property is certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a Backyard Wildlife Habitat. Involvement in many local groups includes Friends of the Hunterdon County Library, Hunterdon County Branch Garden Club, NJ Native Plant Society and Boy Scout Troop 200.

Affiliated with Turpin since 1985, Karen is uniquely qualified to guide home buyers and sellers through the intricacies of the transaction process, from the first home tour to the final signature at closing. She welcomes your call, visit or e-mail to the Oldwick Office, and looks forward to assisting you with all of your real estate dealings.

I am thrilled to be able to highly recommend Karen Sferra. Karen was extremely detail-oriented, which I am too. I appreciated her making sure everything was taken care of to a T! Her personality is a beautiful combination of sweet and savvy. I am very picky when it comes to selling and buying a home. I've done it quite a bit, and she made this house sale and my next house purchase smooth and even enjoyable!!

Karen was a wonderful agent with whom to work and made the process of selling my house effortless and stress-free. Selling/buying is usually a very confusing and maddening experience; Karen took care of everything in a timely, knowledgeable manner and we sailed through our closing. Until you work with someone like Karen, you really have no idea how much it means to have someone handle all the tiny details and really oversee the process. EXCELLENT experience!

Karen could not have been more patient, professional, knowledgeable, helpful, understanding or kind. Here is our situation. We live in a different state 3 1/2 hours away. We hadn’t bought a home in 22 years and that was in a different state. I take care of my parents in a different state 4 1/2 hours from where we live and 2 hours from where we wanted to buy, which at times limited my availability. And if that wasn’t enough, we had no idea what we wanted or exactly where we wanted to look.
Karen guided us through the whole process from start to finish. She kept on top of what options we had and was in constant contact with us, never pushing or trying to force us in a direction that we weren’t comfortable with. Even when we changed that direction, Karen never missed a beat. She redirected her searches and brought us new options. She went above and beyond expectations and found the perfect place for us. She worked hard for us from the first day of contact right through the day of closing. We could not have been happier with the service we received from Karen and highly recommend her!!

"This past fall we decided to relocate from NJ to PA. This was a tough decision to make and a big undertaking for our family. We were referred to Karen who presented us a relocation plan helping us directly with the sale of our NJ home and referred us to an associate in PA to assist us on the purchase. Karen was accessible, knowledgeable and went beyond to make sure we were comfortable with every step of the process. Karen took the time to assist us with preparing our home for sale and ended up getting us multiple offers within 10 days of listing. We appreciate all of Karen's help and friendship with taking this life changing step. We wholeheartedly recommend Weslee and Karen to anyone who wants an experienced professional and with a personal touch team!”

Karen showed us an office space to rent for our business in Lebanon.
She was warm, personable and extremely thorough in every aspect of the transaction.
Returning each and every phone call or email promptly.
Karen went above and beyond for a rental, I can only imagine how hard she will work for a house sale!
I would highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again.
Very Impressed!
