One of the most respected professionals on the Westside, Ms. Kurtzman has received numerous honors at her previous firm as one of its top 3% of sales agents nationwide. She is known for her impeccable client service, in-depth real estate expertise and establishment of lasting relationships during the transaction process. Prior to entering real estate in 1984, her career included positions in the arts, counseling and fundraising.

“I often draw on my background in psychology and counseling in representing my clients,” says Kurtzman. “Every transaction is different, challenging and always interesting. I enjoy creating relationships, making sure the transaction is highly successful for my clients and creating relationships that inspire them to call on me again.”

Both buyers and sellers benefit from Kurtzman’s background and skills. Her 13 years of experience as Executive Director of a nonprofit organization has given her unparalleled marketing, fundraising and organizational expertise. “A strong marketing background is essential in the real estate business,” she says. “It not only enables me to create effective multimedia strategies to showcase my homes, but gives me the solid negotiation skills needed to create a “win-win” situation that gives my clients the best possible outcome.”

A native Californian and Santa Monica resident, Kurtzman earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from U.C. Berkeley and her Master of Arts from the University of Southern California. Her interests include travel, cultural events, and active supporting of many nonprofits. She serves on the Photography Council at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the board of directors for PATH (People Assisting The Homeless). She was also on the Board of Directors of her prior firm’s charitable foundation.

“We are truly delighted to welcome Kaaren to our organization,” said company founder and CEO John Aaroe. “Her unique blend of skills in real estate representation, human connection and the nonprofit arena make her an exceptional addition to John Aaroe Group. She will make an invaluable impact in both serving her clients and helping shape our company.” read less «

Reviews

When I started looking for real estate, Kaaren came into my radar. It must have been fate because she found exactly what I was looking for in just one day. I am still there and still very happy. Kaaren listens to what you want, then goes and does her homework and finds properties that you might like without trying to sell you something you don’t want or that is out of your price range. She is no nonsense, very professional, dedicated and all this comes with a very gentle approach. I’ll never use any other broker.

Kaaren was very easy to work with and her communication with us was great, always there when needed. We sold two properties through Kaaren and we would do it again. I highly recommend working with Kaaren.

Kaaren is both knowledgeable and professional. She knows her markets well and is a very able negotiator. I have worked with her and referred her to friends who have reported back a similar experience. Highly efficient and wastes no time….very results oriented.

Kaaren has helped my husband I buy and sell many properties. In all transactions, Kaaren was knowledgeable, professional and highly competent. Some of the situations were complex and Kaaren was a great problem solver. Her expertise and experience make her the agent to use!

Kaaren is the most competent real estate broker I have ever used. My husband and I just sold a property and bought another one in a concurrent sale and the buyer of our home was also doing the same, as was his buyer. So, as Kaaren told us, we were in a “house of cards” transaction with many moving parts. Fortunately, with Kaaren at the helm, all went well and all issues were solved calmly and professionally and at the end of the day, there were many happy people. I would recommend Kaaren to all buyers and sellers, she is a most capable real estate broker!
