Kara is Managing Partner and a full-time Real Estate Advisor for Engel & Völkers Falmouth. She joined her family business, formerly Foley Real Estate, in 2006 after a seven-year career in the investment industry. After graduating from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications, Kara worked in hedge fund marketing internationally and later went on to be an institutional equity trader for Friedman, Billings and Ramsey.
During Kara’s tenure in the investment banking industry, she worked hard to build a level of mutual trust and loyalty between she and her clients; she feels it is important to spend time getting to know her clients and what their specific needs are, allowing them to make investment decisions that best suit them—being that Real Estate is often ones largest and most important investment, Kara’s expertise in advising her clients to make informed, intelligent and sensical real estate investments has served her clients well over the 14 years that she has been managing her business and selling Real Estate.
Kara’s expansive sphere of influence that she has cultivated over her lifetime in Falmouth, has allowed her to connect her clients and efficiently close transactions, sometimes without even listing a property, publicly.
Born and raised in Falmouth, Kara has chosen to raise her two children here, as well. The waters she once sailed on as a teenager in her 17ft Boston Whaler are the same waters she now takes her children and their friends out boating on. Kara, her 2 children, and 3 dogs are deeply involved in their community through sports, volunteering, The Falmouth Road Race, Falmouth Boosters club and supporting many of her friends and family in their local business endeavors. When not working with clients, volunteering, or attending sporting events for her children, Kara is out on the water boating or out walking along the Falmouth Heights.
Kara’s love for Falmouth and all the natural beauty and adventure that it has to offer has driven her decades of passionate professionalism and success in the Real Estate Market and the local community. To take you back to the beginning, Kara worked for her family business, formerly Foley Real Estate, even as a teenager to earn money to purchase her first boat, and has grown up with Real Estate in her blood ever since.
Kara’s experience in finance and management coupled with her 40+ years living and breathing Falmouth Real Estate make her an experienced and seasoned professional who values her relationship with her customers above all else.
