Hello, my name is Karl Lawrence and I want to be your Real Estate professional for life. Originally from Queens, NY, Karl’s family moved to the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia metro area when he was in grade school.
I grew up in the Real Estate industry working with my parents who were both Real Estate agents in Maryland. In 1995 I obtained my license to sell real estate in Maryland. I began working initially with Buyers and specialized in helping 1st time home buyers with one of the biggest purchase decisions they can make in buying their first home. Additionally, I have worked with renters and individuals with credit challenges by educating them on the importance of establishing great credit thru home buyer seminars
and positioning them to be able to transition from renters to 1st time home buyers.
“Real Estate is in my blood. I have been surrounded by Real Estate my entire life”.
Having a background in finance, I have managed accounting departments in some of the country’s largest law firms, Shaw Pittman, Wilmer, Cutler & Hale and Latham & Watkins. My affinity for working with numbers increases my value to my clients and my tenacious negotiating skills allows me to always earn my client’s top dollar whether selling their home or investing in real estate.
A proud father of 3 children and 2 beautiful granddaughters. In 2004, Karl relocated his family to the Tampa Bay area for the great weather and closeness to some of the finest beaches and theme park attractions in the U.S.
I am a firm believer in staying educated on new technology and continually seek out the latest technology to assist me in providing the most up to date effective marketing strategies and platforms to maximize exposure for my client’s homes.
Karl gives back to the community with not only financial contributions to United Way but also with sweat
equity in working with Habitat for Humanity. Always putting his client’s best interest first, Karl has adopted the mindset to always treat his clients as he would expect to be treated. Honesty, trust worthy, professional, knowledgeable, caring and compassion are not just words but the principles that guide him to provide the best experience for his clients. Karl
recently joined The Griffin Group within Keller Williams New Tampa office.
If you’re looking to move where many just come to vacation, Karl is the agent for you!
