Founder | Realtor®
What do you get when you combine a love of people and a love of homes? You get a thriving career in real estate, just like Symmetry Real Estate founder Karen Ho’s. Karen’s passion is a big part of how she helps people buy and sell homes. From financial negotiations to renovations and design, she relishes the real estate process from A to Z. Her skill and enthusiasm have taken her far: She’s a Best of Zillow agent, she earned a Grand Master Achievement Award from the BayEast Association of Realtors® in 2020 and the Gold Achievement Award in 2021.
Karen takes the time to understand her clients’ needs and curates her approach accordingly, serving as a caring, compassionate guide throughout the process. But when she’s at the negotiation table, she’s a formidable opponent who fights hard for her clients’ interests. With a background in finance and accounting, Karen also offers clients analytical skills and financial knowledge. Her goal is to ensure that they understand the market, and she’s always available to answer any questions they may have.
A native Californian, Karen knew she wanted to be a Realtor® from the moment she accompanied her mother to her real estate office as a young girl. Growing up, this first-generation American watched her parents struggle and save for a piece of the American dream, and she regards homeownership as a significant part of that dream. She wants everyone to experience the joy of it, and her team spirit helps make the process engaging and highly achievable for every client.
Karen loves real estate so much that she could do it all the time, but she also considers eating a pastime and finds all the best spots — both at home and while traveling. Giving back to the community is important to her as well: She has volunteered extensively and especially enjoys working with children.
