Karen McKiernan - Metrowest Realtor
Hi, welcome to my page and thank you for visiting! My goal is to provide the highest level of service to my clients and I welcome the opportunity to represent you in the sale or purchase of your home. But first, learn a little more about me..

I am a full time real estate agent, as well as a full time wife and mom to my husband Jeff and our very busy daughters. We live in Framingham and love the diversity and buzz of our city and all it has to offer! 

I graduated with honors from Lesley College in Cambridge, and began a successful career as a Real Estate Appraiser. Over the last 15 years, I have personally bought and sold many properties, renovating many of them extensively for resale. (Yes, Joanna Gaines is my idol!) I currently own and operate several residential and commercial rental properties as well, giving me the added experience of being a Landlord. 

Now professionally, I having the pleasure of helping others. I understand and appreciate the home buying process as well as finding the right town for my clients, as I believe finding the right community or "your people" is just as important as finding the right house. I also have a keen eye for staging and preparing each and every house for sale in our competitive Real Estate market, i.e, Pinterest worthy!

In any real estate transaction, it is important that the agent you work with is familiar with the town you are buying or selling in. Having had children in both the Framingham and Southborough school systems, and having grown up in Natick (Home of the Redmen!), I am confident in my knowledge of the area to best serve you as a client. 

Kudos: As a Realtor®, I have been recognized as a Top 10 Buyer's Agent and received the Circle of Honor Award, as well as the prestigious 100% award through Realty Executives for my sales production. #hustle

As an Executive with Realty Executives Boston West, my skills and knowledge go hand in hand with a superb marketing team, along with mortgage services, staging consulting, attorneys and the latest technology in real estate tools for my sellers and buyers. In short, I work with awesome people that will help streamline your transactions!

Where you can find me...
When I'm not showing houses or attending a home inspection, you can likely find me at one of our many local athletic fields cheering on my kids or driving them somewhere (Uber Mom), having dinner at a local restaurant, or just hanging out at home cooking and watching Netflix with our pet bunny by my feet and a glass of wine. We also escape to our home in Gloucester as much as we can. We bought our dream home on the water and have been working tirelessly renovating it for the last year! 

If you are thinking of buying or selling a home in the MetroWest area, let's sit down over a cup of coffee and chat more about your specific needs and how I can help you achieve those goals.  I can't wait to hear from you!


"Special shout out to Karen Mckiernan, our amazing Realtor and friend, who not only worked relentlessly to sell our house for top dollar on short notice last year, but pulled a rabbit out of her hat bringing this home to us before it was even on the market and helped us close quickly and painlessly. You're the best Karen, we cant thank you enough!

"And I want to thank my beautiful friend and realtor, Karen McKiernan Kolterjahn, for all her help in this emotional and incredible life changing moment..."

Carolyn Adams Kirk, Natick, MA 2018

Karen did a great job selling our house. Her instincts on staging and pricing were right on, and her team worked like a well oiled machine. She worked hard to market our house and follow up on prospective buyers. Karen stayed involved and kept us informed through the whole process, even taking care of things such as the fire inspection. We had an excellent offer within days of going on the market, and the process went smoothly through closing.
