Moving frequently through the military was a way of life for this San Antonio native. As a “military brat” of an Air Force Dad and Marine stepdad, she learned to adapt and make friends easily through her travels. Karen has a great love for our military and is so proud to have an extensive family of service men and women.
Karen graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Journalism and a minor in Spanish. (She knows just enough Spanish to get herself into trouble.) Her “greatest blessings in life” are her husband Mark and their two sons, Dalton and Logan. As a family they love to snow ski, scuba dive & zip line. When on solid ground, Karen loves to have a camera in her hand and shoot sports photography.
After living in San Antonio for the past 18 years, Karen has a keen awareness of this city she loves so deeply, a city rich in culture, history and a great place to raise children and retire. Karen personally understands that buying and selling a home can be a time consuming and emotional experience, her goal is to provide a positive and seamless process for her clients. She is extremely proud to be a REALTOR® and looks forward to assisting her future clients.
Dena’s love of real estate started early. Her father, a commercial contractor, built their first family home in 1985, doing much of the work himself. Evenings and weekends were spent as his helper, handing him hammers and screwdrivers and sweeping up sawdust. She got more and more involved with each house they build, learning to read blueprints helping choose finishes.
She received her degree in Family and Consumer Science with a focus on housing and design from Texas State University in 2004. It was while working as a property locator for a home rehab company, that she found her passion for fixer uppers. She purchased her first rehab property in 2010 and never looked back. After obtaining her real estate license, she jumped at the opportunity to join the Missy Stagers team and looks forward to working with clients to find their perfect project.
Jennifer Rush – Over the past 25 years, I have enjoyed being wife to my husband who, during that time has served in both the U.S. Marines and U.S. Navy, has been a civilian employee, and has been deployed numerous times. I was also proud to be mom and teacher to our wonderful children who were home-schooled through high school and are now sprouting their wings on their own in young adult life.
In 2016 knowing my role in life was about to change I began to wonder and search for what my next life journey was going to be. Real estate is where the Lord led me, and EXIT Realty Pro in Northeast Texas is where my real estate career began as a Receptionist, Social Media Coordinator, and Compliance Officer. Off and on throughout the years I have toyed with the idea of becoming a Real Estate Agent. Working in the industry with and for Real Estate professionals sealed the deal for me.
In April of 2017 I embarked upon my career as a Real Estate Sales Agent and have since helped buyers and sellers make the biggest financial decision of their lives. It has been my pleasure to help them and will be my pleasure to help you as you buy your new home, sell your long-time homestead, or purchase land for your retirement home; whatever it may be, I’m here to help you!
