Get to Know more about Karen McDermott

Karen McDermott brings 30+ years of local experience servicing Silicon Valley & Pebble Beach communities. Karen prides herself on intimate, world-class service, unparalleled negotiation strategies, and a relentless focus on finding the competitive edge for her clients.


“The market is more defiant and complex than ever before - traditional strategies and mediocre representation no longer prevail - they continue to result in buyers being left behind and frustrated, and sellers overlooking opportunity to capitalize.  In order to achieve successful results in today’s market, buyers and sellers must be keenly aware of their strengths and opportunities in every transaction.  My mission is to identify these strengths and opportunities, employ creative strategies to capitalize on them, and ultimately gain a powerful COMPETITIVE EDGE for my clients.”


Karen's client list consists of families looking to move up or downsize, investors and developers, as well as first-time homebuyers. Karen has also established herself as a go-to partner for Fortune 50 executives - representing their relocation in and out of Silicon Valley.




Karen McDermott possesses a track record shared by very few real estate professionals globally, negotiating purchase contracts for some of the most prestigious properties throughout Silicon Valley and helping represent one of the largest sales in California history, including a $52 million dollar estate.

Karen’s distinguished clients greatly benefit from her strong negotiation skills, extensive lending experience, and creative deal structuring.  Her creative thinking is described by many as having superior talent in her field of residential real estate. These strengths alongside her high-level of knowledge regarding the luxury real estate market give her clients the edge to succeed in every transaction.

In addition to Karen's dedication to continuing her achievements as a consistent top producer in Silicon Valley, she is also a strong advocate for stray dog rescue, regularly working with leading rescue organizations to find dogs-in-need loving homes.

In 2018, she has decided to make this passion an integral part of Karen McDermott with the launch of project McDermutt’s Rescuewill sponsor 2 dogs into loving homes for every home sold by her.

In her spare time, she enjoys her residence in Pebble Beach where she also represents select clients.
