For over twelve years, Karen owned and operated a multi-million-dollar specialty concrete construction business with almost 70 employees. Her business was an integral part of major construction projects throughout Southern California, with companies such as The Irvine Co., D.R. Horton, Lennar Homes, R.D. Olson, Shea Homes as well as several custom home builders.
Karen is now doing what she’s most passionate about. For the past eleven years, she has been involved in every aspect of the exterior hardscape design and installation business for both residential and commercial clients. It was the desire to work directly with clients and the satisfaction of personal contact that led her from her original passion for specialty concrete projects to her current passion: working with people who have dreams for their exterior living spaces and helping them to realize those dreams by providing excellent design, quality product, and professional installation.
As a hardscape design & installation expert, Karen has designed and managed over five hundred residential paver projects; from remodels to new construction, for homes of all sizes, as well as for commercial projects. She has worked for and with several major paver companies in Southern California, and now brings that considerable experience to bear in her own company, Coastline Pavers. Karen is also an ICPI certified installer. (see below)
Upon meeting Karen for the first time there will be a comfortable familiarity & almost immediately comes the sense that this is a person who cares deeply about her customers and lets people know she brings the necessary skills and experience along with a personal investment in each of her customers to ensure their complete satisfaction.
