Simone Karstedt was born in Yorkshire, England, and also lived in Frankfurt, Germany, where her Mom met an American from Houston and they settled in Pasadena, Texas.
For Simone, real estate is about relationships and “getting into other people’s world”, the personal time spent with client’s while driving in the car, viewing homes, eating together and enduring the long process of buying or selling a home. Home buying and selling is a process, there is good and bad in applying for loans, negotiating prices and terms. Simone enjoys taking the frustration out of the process and even making it fun at times.
Simone is involved in her church community where she greets regularly at worship and likes to host dinners for families at church. An avid reader and fitness enthusiast, Simone has owned a personal training studio in West University and helped open Fit Athletic Club in River Oaks, Houston. Other hobbies include snow skiing and river floating in the Texas hill country.
Today, Simone, husband David, and two children live in El Lago and enjoy weekend trips to Galveston Island for dining at Mario’s, baked oysters at Nanoo Tony’s, excellent boutique shopping on the Strand, and of course, the beach and sunsets.
