"Not your typical agent"

Get to know Karen Berling




As an agent who's an expert in this local area, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise about buying and selling real estate here. It's not the same everywhere, so you need someone you can trust for up-to-date information. I am eager to serve you. Here are some of the things I can do for you:


Find Your Next Home:

You need someone who knows this area inside and out! I can work with you to find the right home at the right price for you, including all the neighborhood amenities that matter - not to mention the essential criteria you have for your ideal home


Sell a Home:

When it's time to move, you need someone who will advertise your home, show to prospective buyers, negotiate the purchase contract, arrange financing, oversee the inspections, handle all necessary paperwork and supervise the closing. I can take care of everything you need, from start to close.


Consult on Home Selling Tactics:

Oftentimes buyers don't visualize living in your home the way you do. I can make your home attractive to its ideal audience - which can help you get top dollar. Things like staging the home, making repairs or minor improvements, or even simply painting the walls can be the difference between a home resting on the market and one that's sold fast.



I love Real Estate and working with people, and believe in a high level of customer service. Regardless of whom I'm representing I advocate on behalf of my client. I attribute my success, to the fact that I truely enjoy negotiating for the best deal on behalf of my client(s).

Testimonials for Karen Berling

  • Tom Vinson

    This was my first Florida real estate process, and a foreclosure to boot! Also, I am living in South Carolina so was a remote buyer. Karen showed infinite patience and humor. Since I was coming in from 480 miles away, she was sure to devote her every minute to me while I was in the Melbourne-Palm Bay area. Dealing with a bank as seller takes specialized knowledge and tactics and Karen has both. I recently went through the death of family and am starting a new life. Karen loaned me her extra energy and would not let me quit because she knew what I wanted and kept reassuring me we would find it together. We did.
    I recommend her without reservation and at 67 have lived in 12 states so i have some mileage on me. Thanks, Karen.

    "Best agent ever!!"

  • Jeff Parker

    "Karen worked with my wife and I for more than 7 months to find the right home. That was 2 years ago and if I ever need another realtor I will be calling her. Thank you Karen, still!"

  • Clarence Woodley

    "Karen did an excellent job marketing and closing the sale of my townhouse."

  • Ricky Meléndez

    "Simply the fast and furious realtor in town!!"

  • Debbie Cool

    "Karen is the most pro-active, involved realtor you will find in Brevard County. I met Karen at an open house and within 15 minutes she knew what I liked. She set me up to receive listings on the basis that I wanted. When we viewed a house each one was a distinct possibility for purchase thus we did not waste any time. Once the right place was found she was by my side each step of the way, prompting me when I needed to take care of a matter and staying after the lender, the listing agent, and the closing agents to make things happen! She is truly a person who scrambles for you and has some of the best negotiation skills to ensure you get the best deal possible. If time is something your shy on, Karen is the person for you. I am extremely appreciative of all she did for me and highly recommend her, so she can work the magic for you that she did for me."

  • James Bigbey

    "Karen Berling has demonstrated herself to be very professional and competitive for her clients. I've known Karen since 2008, and her patience with my situation proved to me that no other realtor has those unique qualities of caring for their clients. When I locked in to buy my house in 2009, it was challenging due to changes in the economy to sell my house as a short-sale. Her knowledge in short-sales and foreclosures eased my stress, and after I finally had a buyer that locked in to buy my house, Karen was on top of the mortgage and title companies to set a closing date before any other changes occurred. My accountant was shocked to hear she was able to sell my house as a short-sale, and help me buy another house in the same month. Her eagerness, determination, knowledge level and her aggressiveness to satisfy my needs deserve the highest rating of 5 Stars."

  • Dave Roberts
