Karin Gillette has been a key member of The Liz Caldwell Group for the past ten years, buying and selling luxury homes in Fort Lauderdale and its surrounding communities. As one of South Florida’s top producing teams, Karin continues to be an essential contributor to The Liz Caldwell Group’s success in generating over $850 million in sales.
It was in 1994 that Karin relocated from the suburbs of Philadelphia to the North Shore of Chicago and first discovered her passion for real estate, launching her career with Koenig and Strey Realtors in Glenview, Illinois. Following a six-year expatriate experience in Asia, where she worked in Singapore while raising her family, Karin returned to the United States and fully recommitted to the industry, joining The Liz Caldwell Group in 2009.
Through a combination of personal experience, natural intelligence, and easy approachability, Karin has earned her reputation as someone who is equally a joy to work with as she is effective. The job is about results, as well as about the people and the relationships, and ensuring a positive experience. Her ability to listen and respond to her clients’ needs enables her to pinpoint their goals to create a strategy to get her buyers and sellers where they want to be! Utilizing her resources and a global network of influence, Karin has all the tools to list and sell your home. She is well acquainted with and specializes in today’s global trend of relocation, first-time home buyers, and the desire for second and third homeownership. A long list of repeat and referral clients that she calls friends is both testament to and reward for her continuing dedication and integrity.
In 2005, embracing the South Florida lifestyle, Karin and her family relocated to Fort Lauderdale’s Idlewyld Community. They are members of the Lauderdale Yacht Club and enjoy boating, fishing, tennis, and the occasional shameless TV binge-watching. Her oldest son graduated from and sailed for Saint Thomas Aquinas High School. He attends Villanova Business School and is captain of the sailing team. Her younger son graduated from and played lacrosse for Cardinal Gibbons High School, and attends Florida State University. Karin volunteers for the Lauderdale Yacht Club Sailing Program and Cardinal Gibbons Lacrosse Program and supports the ALS Foundation, Saint Jude's Children's Research, and Food and Allergy Research.
