Hello my name is Karen Dibble-Flaherty. I am a lifelong resident of Connecticut and currently reside in Woodbury with my husband Jim and our golden retriever, Gemma. After graduating from Naugatuck High School, I continued my education at Post University where I received a B.S. in Business Administration. I also received a Mini MBA in BioPharma Innovation from Rutgers University and recently completed Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Training.
I am active in the community most recently working as a volunteer at the Woodbury Food Bank. When I do have some free time, I take every opportunity to spend it with my two beautiful grandchildren, Ellie and James. Some of the other activities that fulfill my life are gardening, entertaining with family and friends and experimenting in the kitchen.
As a real estate professional my philosophy is straightforward, my clients come first. Helping individuals and families through life's transitions is a true calling for me. I consider myself particularly adept at assisting sellers as they prepare their home for sale, and am always excited at an opportunity to assist buyers when they look for their forever home.
Whether you are planning on selling your home or are looking for your forever home let my dedication, experience and expertise help you through every step of that process!
Please feel free to call me at 203-217-4940 to discuss your housing needs.
"I am extremely satisfied with Karen who recently sold my Aunts home! She worked successfully with the lawyers involved, dealt with regulations in a different County, explained each offer in detail, and has great insight and is extremely professional. She made this experience run so smoothly it was truly a pleasure having her as my realtor!
When I?m ready to sell my home she will be the first person I call!

"My agent was very approachable and would guide us through the process of selling and buying after being in one location for 34 years. Things have changed in the real estate market and she was kind enough to help us navigate the new."
"Bought and sold a Single Family home in 2022 in New Milford, CT.
Karen must have shown me 30 or more homes. My criteria was difficult
to fulfill? very difficult and yet she was able to find me a wonderful home.
I searched for more than 5 1/2 months and yet she was unwavering. It is a difficult market and having someone on the ball like Karen on my team reassured me that I WOULD find THE ONE. I am forever grateful to Karen
Flaherty and William Raveis for having hired her."

"Karen is a great realtor who went above and beyond! She was very courteous and responsive. Kept me in the loop! Met me at my convenience! I would definitely recommend her! Karen did a great job selling my family member's property!"
Beverly Thulin (Sold a Single Family home in 2021 in Watertown, CT.)
"Karen came to us after we just about gave up on our exhaustive search trying to find a second home outside of NYC. We began our search in earnest this past December 2020 after continually doom scrolling the dire state of COVID infections and loss of life both here and around the world. We braved last summer in Brooklyn dutifully clad in masks while infection numbers soared, ambulance sirens roared and reading the NYT?s tireless reporting of the death toll that would not abate. We were all over the place. Should we escape to Hudson County , The Poconos, The North Fork, or Litchfield County? We did not know what 2021 would bring but we did know one thing for sure.. we needed a respite, a safe haven, nature and each other. We came to the conclusion that all of our desired destinations were lovely but what we lacked was a residential real estate professional ?in the know? with tenacity, patience, local knowledge and last but not least -a sense of humor that could go the distance with us and our two dogs on our fast and furious search to find a home. Having owned five houses together, over the past 20 years, our search criteria was basic? or so we thought. The house had to have a view of a valley, a mountain or some kind of water element. Given the uncertainty of the pandemic, and unlike our previous homes, we also did not want to spend months attempting to renovate or repair a home with the added costs of materials and the burden of finding qualified craftspeople. We found Karen after we made the wise decision of picking Litchfield County and selecting a LOCAL realtor, Drakeley Real Estate. We had the good fortune of being referred to Karen by one of the principals? -Tim Drakeley. During our initial phone introduction in late January I knew that Karen was the one that could help us get it done! We began working with Karen in the dead of winter and would drive up from Brooklyn EVERY Saturday morning with our lunches packed and two mini-golden doodles in tow. Regardless of the weather, our frustration and at times our irrational desperation, Karen remained a steady guiding force with incredible knowledge, unfailing wit and a clever sense of humor that was very instrumental in our final buying decision. At times Karen knew us better than we knew ourselves and the home we purchased was a home that she recommended. We had seen the house online but dismissed it for reasons that don?t make sense today. We closed this past week and couldn?t be happier and feel so grateful that we have a wonderful place to escape to in the secret corner of Connecticut. Not only did we find a home but we also found a dear friend. Thank you Karen!"
Dorian Hansen (Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in West Cornwall, CT.)
"We met Karen at an open house and instantly knew we wanted to work with her. She helped us feel confident about the home buying process even though it was our first time buying a house. She was patient, professional, and helped us ease into the entire process. We would definitely recommend Karen to anyone looking for a great realtor. She went above and beyond and we are extremely happy we decided to work with her. She helped us to filter through all the many options we were considering to eventually find our dream home. We couldn?t be happier with the home she helped us pick"
DanVaichus (Bought a Single Family home in 2021 in Watertown, CT.)
"Karen Flaherty is a very professional, efficient, and helpful individual. When it comes to assisting her customers, she is always ready to help and goes the extra mile. We have worked with her in the past, and feel extremely thankful for all of her advice. Due to all of this work she had done with us, we would definitely recommend her to all of our friends.
If you have any other questions or concerns, do not hesitate to reach out to me via email."
"Karen was great! She was professional and quickly saw what I was looking for in a house. She knew the area and was prompt in scheduling a walk through, and handled the offer/ negotiation process efficiently! As a senior who is a first time home owner, I was very comfortable working with Karen; and best of all, I am now living in my first home! Thanks to Karen!"
"Showed me more than 30 homes. Helped me during the inspections, walkthrough and guided me through till closing. I will use her AGAIN."
