Shana Karls

Transaction Coordinator


Shana Karls, Transaction Manager, is a valued member of the Sarah Bernard Realty Team. Shana serves as the closing coordinator for all transactions and steps in as soon as a contract is signed and accepted, both on the buying and the selling side. Shana’s invaluable role is to ensure a smooth and successful closing, working closely with the dedicated team realtor for each transaction, as well as with the title company and any outside repair companies.

She has been in the real estate industry for over 20 years, working in all aspects of the business including lending, sales, and title work. With depth of knowledge in these fields, Shana is very well equipped to handle every side of a transaction from contract-to-close.

The real estate process requires detailed work and extreme attention to timelines. Plus, selling and buying real estate often happens during times of important transitions in our clients’ lives. Shana, with her good-natured and calming personality, keeps everyone on track and stress-free during the crucial timeframe between accepted contract and closing.
