Karen Wortman, Biography

Karen Wortman


My husband, Ken, and I moved to Bigfork, MN in 2016 after living in Tennessee for 15+ years. You might still hear the occasional "Ya'll" or I might call you "honey" or "sweetie." I mean no offense; there is still a bit of a Southern Belle lingering inside of me. On a positive note, I am picking up the "You Betcha's", understand that Soda is called Pop, and that folks in Minnesota really are Minnesota Nice. We haven't looked back. We love the people, wildlife, lakes, and yes, even the cold weather. My enthusiasm for the area comes out whenever I speak to someone. I simply love being here.

Being both a military daughter (USAF) and military spouse (USA-Special Forces), I've done my fair share of moving. This unique experience means I understand that buying and selling property can cause a lot of stress and pressure, and I do what I can to ensure you can enjoy your life. I work hard to make sure that you get the best price in the shortest period of time with the least amount of stress.

My clients get full-time attention and benefit from my strong work ethic and desire to be the best. I want to be a valuable resource for you. Whether you are buying or selling, my experience, dedication, and a personal touch set me apart.

In my spare time, I love to fish, hike with my dog and husband, kayak, and spend time with my sons and their families, including my grand children: Tyler (11), Emery (4 1/2), Zander (3) and Abby (1).
