Claire Karnofski brings a philosophy of creative solutions, attention to detail, and honest advisement to her real estate business. In 2020, she joined her daughter Lauren’s team to expand her business and bring success and happiness to every client. Together, the two specialize in residential real estate on the Eastside. Whether bringing a listing to life for sellers or finding the perfect home for a buyer, Claire and Lauren aim to find solutions and ensure the process is as seamless as possible every step of the way. Prior to embarking on her real estate journey, Claire served as Director of Online Marketing at Nordstrom. During this time, she collaborated with her team to bring creative new solutions to targeted online advertising and email marketing, and most importantly, she evolved her approach to client care. In her alignment with the Lauren Jones Team and Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty, Claire leverages the power of the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand to help her clients achieve their goals through hard work, negotiation, and the power of a trusted, global brand heritage. Claire grew up in the Midwest and earned a degree in mathematics and education at Central Methodist University before heading to the Bay area to work in the oil industry—she then relocated to Seattle in the 1980s and fell in love with the Pacific Northwest. When not in the office, Claire may be found biking, swimming, reading a good book, or spending time with her grown daughters and grandchildren.
