About Me

Selecting the right home for you and/or your family is a huge decision. There isn't much more important than where and how you live, work and play. Itʼs a big deal! Thatʼs why I take the time to understand you, your goals and needs as they relate to buying or selling your home. My goal is to be a source of information first and foremost and then guide my clients through the buying or selling process. I recognize my job includes much more than sending a listing and opening a door or putting up a sign. I take the responsibility of handling my client's transaction very seriously. Always keeping in mind that buying and/or selling a home is not only one of the largest transactions people make, but it is also a very emotional one. My knowledge of the local markets and ability to negotiate is a winning combination. Let me put that to work for you!

“Karen Sparks rocks! She told us exactly what needed to be done to get top dollar and I think we got the highest price in my neighborhood so far.”
Chase B., Fairfax (Seller)
“We can't say enough about the talent and experience Karen brings to the table, local knowledge, marketing methods, staging, negotiations, she is a sellers best friend. In the end she helped us to weight the merits of multiple offers and accept an offer $10K over asking price on the 3rd day of listing and we were under contract before the weekend.”
Scott T, Warrenton (Seller)
“Karen is kind, patient, knowledgeable, smart and incredibly helpful. She goes the extra mile and never betrays frustration or impatience. It's been a pleasure working with Karen, and I can be a very picky person when it comes to realtors - i interviewed five before I signed with Karen. Karen did an excellent job of staging my house and arranging photographs. As a result, it was under contract in less than three days, which included the weekend. She went to the extra mile in getting my house ready and even making a few home improvements we hadn't tackled. She was always available by text, phone or email and worked diligently through the whole process. During COVID, she was always careful and considerate of restrictions, but it never slowed her down. She is committed and very responsive!”
Eileen Simoes, Alexandria (Seller)
“Karen is a fantastic agent. She goes above and beyond for her clients and really takes you in as if you are family. She is reliable and resourceful and a wonderful advocate for her clients and their property. I cannot say enough about Karen and am so grateful that she helped us find our dream home. ”
Amy Sonderman, Falls Church (Buyer)
“Karen Sparks was a perfect fit for us. She tolerated our 4 year old son and drove us all around the area several times. She showed us 24 houses in total. She was very patient with us and went above and beyond to help us navigate the real estate world as first time home buyers. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a determined professional who specializes in excellent service and local knowledge. We are very happy with our home and feel that Karen really helped us make the right decision.”
Jesse Mink (Buyer)
“Karen is Awesome! She has helped us buy three home and sell 2. Couldn’t ask for a better guide throughout the home selling and purchasing process! Karen helped us understand the current market and get a great deal on our home. We couldn’t be happier with the experience. Karen helped us prepare and stage our home prior to listing and helped us sell quickly while we were contingent on our other home purchase. We also got above asking ”
NJohnson, Warrenton, BA (Buyer)
“Thank you Karen!”
Debra Barker (Seller)
“Thankful that I stayed with Karen Sparks and Century 21 through the NFCU realtorplus program. Would recommend Karen Sparks and Century 21 to family and friends”
Carol Shutty, Arlington (Buyer)
“Karen was so kind and patient with us as we initiated a whirlwind house search after moving from overseas. She helped us out with our kids and dog while we were looking at houses, and even during home inspections and paperwork days. She was so friendly and kind and we appreciated that so much. She was able to glean what we wanted and needed in a home and helped us visualize as we were searching. I also really appreciated her knowledge of the area and her honesty. We would use her again no question!”
Nicolle Bernard, Fairfax (Buyer)
“Karen is very professional and responded to all of my questions and concerns in a very timely manner. ”
Kathleen Lewis (Seller)
“I have sold a few homes before in my life, but I have NEVER had a realtor like Karen Sparks. From the moment I met her I knew that she was the right person to partner with for the sale of my home. Karen was so great at listening to my concerns, helped me come up with solutions for even the silly things, and made the process seamless! Her obvious expertise in the local market was only to be overshadowed by her genuine care and respect for people. Karen Sparks is the reason why I sold my home in less than a week( for more than I had hoped!), kept my smile throughout the process, and felt absolute pride in having chosen her to work with.”
Eileen Jennings Fairfax Virginia (Seller)
“Karen was knowledgeable in all aspect of selling a house,staging, timing and pricing. I felt comfortable with her suggestions regarding staging the home for pictures and showings. She never showed any frustration with me or all my questions during the sale process.”
Marilyn Haight (Buyer)
“Karen is the most professional real estate person I've ever worked with! Her knowledge of the various housing areas, the market, and my requirements -- all came together with Karen so that I was able to buy a house that really works for me.”
Doug Harts, Springfield (Buyer)
