Hi I’m Karen Russo and I started in mortgage industry in 1986. During my time I have found a passion helping people achieve the dream of homeownership. I specialize in VA loans as well as first homebuyers. Goldsboro has a sweet spot in my heart because I grew up there. To this day I still have a personal connection with family and friends.
For the homebuyers I work with I try to put myself into their position. This helps me better understand the stresses of this process. Most of all, my goal is to make it as easy as possible.
Now for my realtor partners I do my best to earn and keep their trust. Like with my homebuyers I want to make the process easy. Most notably, I strive to close the loans on time. It is very important to me that when I give them a pre-qualification letter it is because I believe in that buyer and trust it will go smoothly for everyone.
For the last 25 years I have been happily married to Anthony. We have two sons who attend UNC Wilmington. I myself graduated from East Carolina University. Now in my free time I escape to the beach.
