“My work as a Realtor has me traveling all across the region where I see firsthand the need that’s out there to help those less fortunate,” said Karl.  “Our company has a rich tradition of community service and giving back and I’m proud to carry on that legacy with a successful fundraising campaign during the month of September.”


Crye-Leike, REALTORS has had a long-standing relationship with United Way chapters throughout the regions served by the company and it’s employees and associates.  Since the year 2000 the company has made workplace giving fun for everyone and raising the much-needed funds to support and sustain agencies that provide vital services to those in need.


Karl is a licensed real estate sales associate in Tennessee working with buyers and sellers in and around Rutherford, Davidson and Wilson counties.  She is a Residential Real Estate Specialist with a focus on first time homebuyers, relocation and new home construction.  Karl is a member of the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors (GNAR) and the National Association of Realtors (NAR).


“This year I’m serving as a Diplomat and Ambassador for the Rutherford Chamber of Commerce, attending new business ribbon cutting ceremonies and helping spread the word about them,” said Karl.  “I’m in a great place with my business and community service to also spread the word about United Way, with the hope of making this the best campaign Crye-Leike has ever had.”
