As part of her college major in economics and international studies, Karina Mejia decided to take a class in residential real estate development that set her on a path to her dream career. Obtaining her license while still a student, she began in the industry as a real estate valuation analyst. While working at a commercial real estate consulting firm and gaining vast knowledge in the statistical side of the industry, Mejia realized her passion for real estate couldn’t flourish behind a computer — she knew she needed to be in the field.
Four years later, Mejia is a competitive real estate professional on an upward trajectory. “I’m passionate about my job, and it shows,” she says. “I truly care about my clients.” Skilled in connecting with her clientele and educating them such that they feel the utmost confidence in their decision-making, she uses her diversified breadth of knowledge to communicate realistic expectations throughout the transaction process. With a focus in new construction and first-time homebuyers, this Boston native serves the eastern and Greater Boston markets with trustworthiness, friendliness and competence.
The recipient of EVO Real Estate Group’s Top Producer award for 2021, Mejia lays claim to $24 million in sales — a growth of more than 425% from the previous year. She credits her membership in a mastermind group of national real estate investors to much of her development, personally and professionally. Mejia, an investor herself, was also featured on the BiggerPockets Real Estate Rookie podcast (episode 133).
Always learning and striving to grow in her craft, Mejia loves helping people accomplish their goals and finds her work extremely rewarding. The child of first-generation immigrants, she’s happy to be living the American dream they envisioned for her while helping people find their piece of that same dream.
