About Me



I will, whether you are buying or selling, Serve and Represent ALL my clients and customers with the highest Ethical, Professional and Moral Standards.

It is my intention to AMAZE, AMUSE, SURPRISE AND DELIGHT you throughout your Real Estate transaction.

~Karen Carmona



Today’s home buyers and home sellers need an expert real estate professional to guide them through this complicated and exciting process. NP Dodge has equipped me with the knowledge and tools that it takes to assist you through a successful real estate transaction. I encourage you to sign up for an account here on my website. Be sure to download our iPhone and/or Android app so you have access to all area homes for sale. It would be my pleasure to help you find a new home and/or help you sell your current home. NP Dodge was founded in 1855 and for five generations, we have invested in the communities that we serve.

In the beginning, my husband was a Realtor and I was his assistant for five years. Having learned the ins and outs of the business, I became interested myself and decided to pursue my license.

Licensed since 2008, I also work heavily with builders; Mark McKeever's most notably. His primary focus is that of developing and building New Construction Homes.  My current project scope is assisting in closing of lots at Sherwood Subdivision in Underwood, Iowa. Since obtaining my license, I have served on several committees. NP Dodge internal committees, RPAC, and I have previously served on the MLS committee through SWIAR.  In 2017, I was the MLS Chair person.

I am also committed to helping those serving in our military. Having family members in the military has given me a personal passion for this specific group. I understand that there are a lot of moving parts when being relocated and the necessity of finding a home to connect you to your new community. I am excited to work with you and your families

Ken is a past client of mine and I must say, we have become pretty "darn" good friends.  I was most honored when he presented the opportunity to me to sponsor his race car. It has been a very rewarding season. 




A little about my friends....

As an agent in Iowa, I have met so many friends along the way. I also work alongside lenders such as First National Bank. Mary Pauley, FNB loan office of Council Bluffs, invited me to participate in a Round Table discussion regarding how FNB could assist agents. It's all about the Team Work.

View my testimonials, as they showcase the level of professionalism and care I give to my clients...and now my friends.


What a joy Karen was to work with, went above and beyond to make our house hunting a fun experience. We are happy to have gotten to know her!

Karen was amazing. With the market as hot as is was, she was able to find us the perfect home. She never slacked off one bit between looking and closing. She was in contact with us almost daily making sure we knew what was going on and what was next to happen. Even when she was on vacation for a few days she didn't slack off. She was in contact with us or the agent that was covering for her so that she always knew where everything was as. If you want the best agent out there, call Karen Carmona with NP Dodge!! You can't go wrong with her!!!!!

Karen --- I want to personally thank you for the quality service you provided myself and my Family. Being deployed is no easy task, but buying a house from overseas was a piece of cake. From the first walk through to the gift left on the table after closing, your expertise as a Realtor was exceptional. I never had to worry about a thing during the entire home buying process. Really, I've never seen anyone respond so quickly to the slightest request or need. Thank you again for your support as I serve our country. Thank you for assisting my wife with every detail. I wish everyone could buy a house from you! Respectfully, Charles Kistler

Dan (My Broker) --- I just wanted to send you a note letting you know of our great experience working with Karen Carmona. She just helped us purchase our first home and we couldn't be happier. This wasn't the easiest or smoothest process. The other parties involved made it really difficult at times and I'm sure it would have been a very unpleasant experience if not for Karen. With me being 7-8 months pregnant through the process, she made sure she handled everything and anything so I wasn't stressed or worried going into closing. She is truly an amazing person. We would like to thank, both Karen and NP Dodge for making the purchase of our first home a pleasant experience.

- Amanda P.

I appreciate your help so very much. You went above and beyond to help a new agent and am so thankful from the bottom of my heart!

- Debbie Foote, NP Dodge

I would like to thank Karen Carmona for helping us find our beautiful home we purchased through NP Dodge. This is our 1st Home and we had lots of questions as we went through the process. We could call her day/evening. She either knew the answer or would find out the answer and get back to us promptly to ease our minds. So, Thank You, Karen for making the journey with us from renting to purchasing a new home. We could not have asked for a better Realtor.

- Nate W. & Bobbi D.

I worked with Karen during my 1st home buying experience. She always made sure I was taken care and did not waste my time by showing me houses she knew I wouldn't want! Karen made sure I had the 1st time home buying experience, but made suggestions to choose a house that met my needs. She made the process simple, less stressful and even fun. I will use Karen for all future business when if comes to buying and selling a house!

- Rachel F.

We would like to thank Karen S. Carmona at NP Dodge. If you are looking to buy a house I highly recommend her. She has been extremely helpful in the home buying process. There was a lot of things that she helped us through wither it was getting us contacts for inspection, giving us helpful advice and knowledge for things to be careful of when purchasing a home, and she genuinely has your best interest in mind. She has also been very patient and did not give up on us during our period of searching which started back in November and we looked a lot of houses before we were finally happy with one. Thank you Karen so much for all that you have done to get us where we are.

- Austin C.

We were very fortunate to have been referred to Karen from another realtor. As our realtor, she helped us find the right house in a great neighborhood for the right price. She was very patient with us, she made sure we had all of our questions answered and was quick to respond to us. She helped guide us through the process making sure we understood what was going on every step of the way. Karen made us feel like we were in control and never let us feel like we had to make a move that we did not want to make. Karen was nothing but spectacular for us and would highly recommend her to anyone who would ask us.

- Zach O.

Karen helped us tremendously with the purchase of our home in Malvern, IA. She diligently called me frequently and assisted us with finding different homes to tour, went above and beyond by making phone calls and assisting us through the process of paperwork and other issues related to purchasing a home. The home we bought is beautiful in a town we feel comfortable in. We cannot thank "KAREN" enough for her assistance in finding the "perfect home" for us.

- Mary Z.

“Karen was awesome! She was a joy to work with and made buying a home a great experience. She kept us informed throughout the entire process, was responsive to our concerns, and was always there to answer any questions that came up. Karen worked with us from start to finish beginning with the property search, helped us locate a great mortgage representative, and was with us at closing. It felt as though it was personal to her as well as us. Thanks Karen!”

- Thomas S.

Karen is very knowledgeable of her trade. Very responsible, honest, and trustworthy. Did exactly what she said she was going to do. I believe she goes above and beyond to make this experience less stressful and more enjoyable for us. Thanks Karen!
