KZA Realty Group, the well-established real commercial estate agency based in the Bronx, has recently welcomed Westchester County, NY based Karen Mayo as the newest Sales Member to their team. Karen has a wide range of client-facing skills that add value to the company’s goal of providing top real-estate solutions for the Bronx and Westchester County.
“We are very excited to have Karen join our team at KZA Realty,” said Kathy Zamechansky, President of KZA Realty Group. “She has experience working in all parts of the real estate market, which will be very helpful when working with clients from all backgrounds and interests.”
Karen’s passion for real estate began with her role at SLH Mortgage, where she served as one of the company’s top Senior Loan Officers. In her role, she gathered valuable insight to the home loan process by getting first-hand experience processing underwriting documents. That, along with her natural aptitude for aiding clients, propelled her as one of the company’s top 10 loan officers for two years in a row.
Shortly after, Karen accepted a role as a Home Mortgage Consultant for Wells Fargo where she continued to oversee all facets of the home-loan process. During this time, she realized the importance of tailoring her products to the financial profiles of her clients, and soon developed a system that identified their long-term goals and matched them with the best home loan option. This system allowed her to specialize as a Private Mortgage Banker for Home Savings of America, where she educated high status clients on solutions to purchase or refinance the home of their dreams.
In 2011, Karen decided to pursue other facets of the real estate market by becoming an Assistant Office and Project Manager for a construction company. During this time, she learned about building construction and potential cost reductions for property buyers – all while simultaneously studying to become a Licensed Real Estate Agent. Fortunately, her hard work paid off, and she became a Licensed Real Estate Agent in 2013, where she showed residential properties and successfully advised homebuyers on purchase procedures for the next seven years.
"After spending time in both residential and commercial real estate, working with KZA Realty has made me realize that I have finally found my passion for commercial real estate,” said Karen Mayo. “Kathy is epitome of a professional and at the same time truly a legend in commercial real estate. I'm excited to break the ceiling at KZA Realty."
