With a combined 40 years of experience as real estate professionals, Karen and Tripp Champion are dedicated, full time agents, working with the most respected real estate company in Naples, John R. Wood Properties, established in 1958. The Real Estate Champions’ expert knowledge of SW Florida includes real estate in Park Shore and surrounding areas (Seagate, The Moorings, Coquina Sands and more), along with long-standing contacts with local law firms, title companies, general contractors and service people all of whom provide their professional services to ensure transactions are smooth and done properly for our clients before, during and after the sale. We do not employ a team of “assistants”, rather we have based our success on one on one communication directly with our clients. Clients become friends and as friends we have a shared loyalty that ensures our success.
Tripp, Karen’s son, moved to Naples in 2000 after a career in the insurance business and then on to real estate, selling new construction for a top builder in the Chicagoland area. Tripp saw the opportunities to continue with residential real estate in Naples having seen Karen’s success over the years, and of course to enjoy the tremendous lifestyle that Naples provides. Over the last 14 years, Tripp has gained a loyal following of his own, combined with working alongside Karen to develop a team approach to listing and selling properties in Park Shore and the surrounding beach front communities.
Karen began in Naples in 1989 since moving to the area from the Midwest after a successful real estate career on the North Shore of Chicago where she worked with affluent clientele listing and selling properties along the lakefront and upscale communities located just north of the city. She moved to Park Shore, where she still resides, and continued her successful career working with many of the same Midwestern clients who began to discover Naples as a top destination for their winter homes. As Naples was gaining more and more popularity and as the town grew, Karen found tremendous success as an expert in the local market gaining a loyal following that continues today. These days, Karen is actively involved in keeping Park Shore beautiful and progressive as the current President of the Park Shore Association. She is entrenched in the community and a well-respected real estate agent and proponent of Park Shore and all it has to offer.
