Karen Sandvoss joined Be Realty in 2019 as the office manager and shortly thereafter obtained her Illinois Real Estate Broker’s license.
Growing up in Oak Park, Karen moved to the California Bay Area in 1998 to be part of the first tech boom, working as a senior art director at SF Media, helping to design the very first websites for companies like Jamba Juice, Pontiac and Domino’s Pizza. She then shifted gears to run the Operations Department at Super Nutrition, a vitamin supplement company. After a decade and a half she saw an opportunity to be part of the newly legalized cannabis industry in California, becoming the finance coordinator at Medithrive, one of the oldest cannabis dispensaries in San Francisco.
In 2019 Karen moved back to Chicago to be closer to family and now brings her operational expertise, artistic eye and cannabis industry knowledge to the team at Be Realty.
In her non-working life, Karen is a musician, comedic improviser and a musical accompanist for improvisational theater.
