Karen Zell-Verhelst- Helping You on the Move

The Homes and Lakeshore brand has a strong history in helping first time home buyers in Fergus Falls, and those buying and selling lakeshore and other property in the region. Homes and Lakeshore consistently ranks high in real estate sales for the 6-state North Central region.

Karen Zell-Verhelst, Trilogy Real Estate

Growing up on the lake, Karen Zell-Verhelst is an expert on our lakeshore communities, finding just the right fit for those desiring the lakes lifestyle. Or, when it is time to find a first home, move up to a larger home or help empty nesters downsize, you can rely on Karen’s dedication and follow-through.

Recently Karen made an important move to Trilogy Real Estate, a company built on the values of Community, Contribution and Collaboration.  “A thriving community is what sustains business so it is vital to give back to the areas we serve,” Karen says. “A portion of each agent’s fees to Trilogy are retained and then donated to the charity or service group of our choice. I also greatly appreciate the third value of Trilogy- the entire group of agents that I work with believe in helping each other and collaborating together. Trilogy clients have an advantage when the whole team supports them.”  

Whether introducing your family to a new community, or providing a free, comprehensive evaluation of your current home value, Karen’s collaborative approach, decades of experience and professional marketing support helps clients make a move with maximum peace of mind.

From Veterans or first time home buyers to seasoned buyers, sellers and investors, Karen takes great pride in relationships building and always works relentlessly on the client’s behalf to help them achieve their real estate goals.
