Karen McCall

Did you know you don’t have to be a REALTOR® to sell real estate in North Carolina? Not only am I licensed by the NC Real Estate Commission, I’m proud to be a REALTOR® which means I belong to the National Association of REALTORS®, the NC Association of REALTORS® and the Rutherford County Board of REALTORS®. I believe if you belong to an organization you should be involved in it. Over the years I have served as a Director with the Rutherford County Board of REALTORS®; have been Chairman of the REALTORS® Political Action Committee, member of the Finance Committee and have served on the Public Relations Committee. I’ve won several awards but am proudest of The President’s Award for “outstanding” service. This year, I’m a Director and I’m serving on the PR Committee. Marketing/PR is a good fit for me since I spent several years as an account manager with the largest producer of real estate marketing material in the United States (if not the world). I’ve worked as a cover photographer and copy writer with nearly every real estate firm in Rutherford and Polk Counties.  As a REALTOR® I subscribe to the REALTORS® Code of Ethics and a high standard of practice. I strive to provide a level of service to our clients consistent with the competence, fairness and integrity of The National Association of REALTORS® and McCall’s Real Estate.  

I am proud to be the owner of my own business. In my former profession as a job placement professional, I found jobs for people and people for jobs. Finding homes for people and people for homes utilizes many of the same interpersonal and professional skills and I love the work! After more than 10 years as a Broker I still love touring homes, and I love introducing clients to Rutherford County.

From the time I moved from Charlotte to a 200 year old log home in Golden Valley in 1990 I have called Rutherford County home and have established strong community ties and many cherished friendships. I’ve always been a volunteer and when Michael was young worked with Cup Scout Pack 120 in Sunshine; I served as Den Mother and eventually Cub Master. We all helped at Camp McCall where both of my boys, George and later Michael were lifeguards. At Sunshine Preschool I started a Cyber Kids Computer Club which was a lot of fun. Over the years, in collaboration with the Fireside Writer’s Forum, I’ve written extensively about the area and authored the manuscript, “The Incomplete History of Golden Valley”. I run the GoldenValleyNC.com website and have since 2005. I run a community Facebook page with about 400 Followers, and a Golden Valley Blog, all available through the website. Living here has afforded us with a diverse and enriched quality of life I can personally attest to and I believe in giving back.  As my client you will have the benefit of my professional Real Estate expertise and my personal knowledge of Rutherford County and the surrounding area. My motto is “Always Working For You” and I will always endeavor to provide personalized, quality services to you, your family, and friends.
