About Karen Solgard

Karen Solgard was a homeowner and borrower before becoming a lender so brings empathy to each client and transaction.  Everyone has a unique financial situation. To match the right loan to the borrower takes careful attention to detail. Karen guides each person to the best available interest rate when financing a home purchase or refinance.

Past clients say:
  • She was on top of everything, all the time. Efficiency doesn't even begin to describe Karen. It goes beyond that. The entire process was smooth, hassle free.
  • Karen went above and beyond. She explained every step in terms I could understand.
  • We looked to Karen to provide us with honest and reliable information and were never disappointed.
  • Karen is exceedingly knowledgeable in all areas surrounding  our mortgage process.
A move to Southwest Florida in 2011 was a sharp contrast to Karen's growing up years on a farm in Northwestern Minnesota and owning a home in South Minneapolis for 30 years.  She enjoys gardening, sailing, and exploring the back-roads of Florida.
