I have been a part of the Lake Eufaula community since 1990.  I started out as a “weekender” spending nearly every weekend at the lake and following in love with it.  In 1996 I moved to Lake Eufaula with my partner and have been here ever since. Lake Eufaula is my home.
Besides real estate, I have a passion for social and community change and spend much of my free time involved in projects and events that satisfy my beliefs and interests.  Acquiring, renovating and bringing 100+ year old buildings back to life is a huge passion of mine.  I love seeing them come alive with businesses and activities that help the community and bring smiles and enjoyment to people.
Customer service is the number one priority in my real estate business.  I know that people come to me with needs and wants about the most important investments of their lives. I take this very seriously. My main goal is to provide professional care services to my customers and clients.
Helping people has been my goal my entire life. Besides my experience in the real estate profession, I have spent twenty years as a therapist, have been director of operations for a national non-profit organization, have volunteered in the community to help organize for social change, and have worked hard to make a lasting difference in my community.
My skills and experience as a counselor, business woman and community organizer gives me a special collection of gifts to offer people help who are selling and buying real estate. I am sensitive to people’s needs; I hear and understand what they are saying and feeling; and possess the business savvy to get what needs to be done in a professional, ethical and timely manner.
I also value education, knowledge and competency and am always striving to improve myself. I have a B.A. in Religion, a Masters degree in Human Relations, and the majority of the hours towards a Master of Divinity degree.  I have earned several real estate designations including the Graduate REALTOR® Institute Certification and the Certified Residential Specialist designation which is the highest credential awarded to residential sales agents and brokers.  I also have earned the Accredited Buyer’s Representative and At Home With Diversity designations.  I am the only Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist in the area.
What ever I take on in life, I put 100% plus of myself into it.  I want to do a great job for people and know at the end of the day I have done my best to be the best REALTOR® I can be for others. I hope if you are looking to buy or sell real estate you will realize it is important to first pick your REALTOR® based on their values, knowledge, expertise, and sales records.  Build that relationship based on trust, respect and loyalty – together you will find just the right home for you and/or be able to sell to just the right family.  I hope you will contact me and let me be your REALTOR®



We chose Eufaula Lakeshore Realty after interviewing 3 realtors in the area. Karen Weldin was very professional in all our dealings with her. When she did her comps to help us come up with a realistic sales price, we felt that she did the best assessment for us. All comps were truly comparable to our property. Karen took COVID 19 seriously from the start and we felt she always had our safety in her mind when showing or allowing our home to be shown. She notified us with as much advance notice as possible of every showing and offered feedback afterward which we did not experience when other realtors showed the home. We did have several other Real Estate Companies show the home and one of them even had an offer on the property, but that agent did not treat us with the respect that Karen did. In the end our home was sold by Eufaula Lakeshore representing both the buyers and sellers and the closing process moved quickly and easily. Karen was always available to us no matter what questions or problems we had. If I were buying or selling a home, we would definitely use Karen Weldin and her team again.
Joan and Bill Wasson, Porum, OK
We were moving and living out of state when we purchased our house. We relied on Karen to assist us in every aspect to include setting up homes for us to see, assisting us in the contract and closing process as well as being present and representing us throughout the inspection process. Karen knows the area since she has been a long time residence as well as actively involved in the well being of Eufaula, OK. We are currently using her to sell our home, which thanks to Karen we had a contract within a day. Unbelievable!!! But based on her experience and knowledge of the area out of town buyers contacted her. We highly recommend Karen to anyone interested in selling or purchasing a home. Thanks again, Karen!
Robin Rager, Stigler, OK formerly Richmond, VA
Karen was very attentive to our needs. She was so knowledgeable and honest. We are so thankful for her and anxious to get to the lake! There was nothing about this experience that was not top-notch. We were very pleased, happy and appreciative of getting to know Karen and consider her the best.
Randy and Helen Mitchell, Stigler, OK
Karen is awesome. If you want to sell or buy Call Karen! Very professional and has all the tools to sell your house. If you're selling or buying you can't beat Eufaula Lakeshore Realty and Karen Weldin.
Charles and Margaret Wright, Stigler, OK
Great service, great patience with us as it took a while to figure out our plans. Smooth process. Can't get any better service. We have been working off and on for a while with Karen as we contemplated upgrading our Eufaula Property. Karen was very attentive as we looked at homes an vacant lots all over Lake Eufaula. It took us a while but we settled on finding property around the Longtown Area. After exhausting home searches, Karen found us 2 absolutely perfect and beautiful waterfront lots at the Meadows of Longtown. we are excited to build a brand new home in our secluded cove. We would have never found this property without Karen's extensive knowledge of the area and her numerous contacts. Karen rates a 10 of 10 in our eyes. This is no one better to assist with your real estate needs.
Jeffrey and Valerie Oakley, Eufaula, OK
Karen, thank you so much for being our very own realtor and friend! This is the 3rd real estate experience we've shared with Karen Weldin: 2 sales, 1 purchase. We are already preparing for another sale and we can't wait to work with Karen again.
Larry and Holly Stafford, Eufaula, OK
We highly recommend Karen. She is a go getter. She will get back with you if you leave a message. Highly qualified to sell your property. We would not think twice to have her sell our property again.
Tony and Dale Randol, Stigler, OK
We are very appreciative of Karen's guidance through the process. She went out of her way to help us with some unique circumstances. Karen walked us through the process from beginning to end. Her professionalism and commitment to our listed property, our questions ,and problems mad the transaction a great experience. So we always knew what to expect. We would recommend Karen and Eufaula Lakehsore Realty to anyone wishing to purchase or sell a home.
Randy and Linda Weise, Eufaula, OK
We had seen our dream home online from California and spoke with Karen, and set appointment to view the day after we arrived. She was very helpful and made our dream come true! Karen was wonderful! Karen kept in touch with us through every detail. She is the best.
Teresa and Robert Howard, McAlester, OK
We both were extremely happy with all the help and service Karen gave us. Karen Weldin was not only extremely professional at the same time we felt like part of the family. No question left unanswered. Always seemed to have all the time in the world for us, always keeping us informed and made suggestions when needed. We would both highly recommend Karen and definitely be using her again.
Betty Kelso and Patty Webster, Eufaula, OK
Karen did an excellent job with a very difficult problem and got the house approved to be sold. Eufaula Lakeshore Realty did an excellent job helping us find the perfect home for our family. We love lake life and Karen Weldin was such a delight to work with. We have the perfect vacation home for all 15 of our family members.
Coats and Jamie Briscoe, Stigler, OK
Karen and her team did what they said they would do. I couldn't have picked a better company or team to work with. Karen by far is a friend and professional team mate. She worked very hard to sell my home that I had built from the ground up. I hated leaving the lake house but she made it bearable and kept close contact with me on the process every step of the way.
Tammy Hutchison, Stigler, OK
Karen was a great help! I would recommend Eufaula Lakeshore Realty to others.
Deborah Hale, Carlton Landing, OK
Keep up the good work! The best realtor in town!
Mallie and Karen Lennon, Eufaula, OK
Karen Weldin is the go to lady for property in Eufaula, and the surrounding area. Pam and I were totally happy.
David and Pam Jordan, McAlester, OK
Karen Weldin is a true professional. She took the time to listen to what I was wanting in a lake place and helped me find exactly what I wanted. She was always prompt and even showed me homes in the rain. I also like her respect and professionalism with other realtors and sellers more than anything I TRUST Karen Weldin. I wouldn't want to sue anyone else. She accompanied me at closing. It was different doing this during COVID but Karen walked me through the process and we made it happen. Thank you Karen Weldin and Eufaua Lakeshore Realty.
Michael Hixson Sr, Porum, OK
When looking for a real estate professional to sell our lake property, we turned to the internet as anyone today would. Eufaula Lakeshore Realty stood out from all the rest with its website design and information available to prospective customers. We were very fortunate in having Karen Weldin come out and give us a market evaluation that exceeded our expectations, and then Karen patiently waited for us to prepare the property for listing. Our property sold two days after listing, for full price. Note: This property was in excellent shape & ready for lake enjoyment. We could not have had a better experience with Eufaula Lakeshore Realty & would highly recommend Karen Weldin to anyone. She is a true, experienced professional, outstanding in her field and a pleasure to work with.
Steve and Lynn Cook, Eufaula, OK
Karen's very professional and great to work with. She's the best!
Robert Gibbons, Checotah, OK
We were looking for a lake house with a dock, we found our house and fell in love. Karen helped us along the whole process and even negotiated extras. We are very pleased with the whole process.
Michael and Amy Sanchez, Eufaula, OK
Karen was very helpful in us acquiring our new home. She went above and beyond what I fell most real estate agents do. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy real estate.
Delbert and Freda Buttery, Porum, OK
Love the new site! It's really helping me to find all the properties I'm interested in!!!
Bill Smith, Oklahoma city, OK
Karen and all, this is an excellent list and it describes our experience working with you to sell our home. You did your homework, shared it with us, discussed options, provided advice and then you worked, worked, worked to get the house sold. Further, when the buyer hit a snag with their lender the day before closing, Karen went way beyond what most Realtors would do and actually drove to the Lenders to meet with them to dig into the problem. Once she identified the snag she again went beyond what most Realtors would do and provided the contacts to the underwriter to get the closing back on track. Without Karen's extraordinary efforts, three families would have lost out. We are forever grateful for everything you did for us to help us live our dream. As far as we're concerned, Karen Weldin and staff are the best Realtors in Oklahoma, hands down.
David and LaDonna Coy, Texas
Steve and I have shared a sigh of relief in knowing that we finally have the "right person for the job". Your confidence and your professionalism are outstanding, and in turn, we are very confident that you and your team will diligently work toward the closing sale of our home. We are very excited about this venture with you because we know we have a very unique property to market---and a very unique person to market it. Thanks for being there.
Steve and Vannean Barnes, Eufaula, OK
"Karen did a wonderful job! She found the perfect place for us. We told Karen what we wanted and she found it for us! When several other agents told us that what we wanted couldn't be found we almost lost hope - then we met Karen. Karen stayed in contact with us, was always available (even after business hours), promptly returned phone calls and handled everything in a professional manner...We highly recommend Karen Weldin - we have gained a friend."
Jon, Vicki and family, Indianola, OK
"Karen, it was a pleasure working with you on the purchase of our new lake home. I have never dealt with a REALTOR that was more dedicated, patient and efficient as you!
Michael & Debbie McKinney, Midwest City, OK
"Karen, thank you for all that you did for the property, you made our dream come true! I cannot think of a thing you could have done to make things better. It was a God thing."
Mike & Kathy Upton, Tecumseh, Oklahoma
"Karen gave three hundred percent, went the extra ten miles, never gave up, did anything and everything it took! We can't praise her enough! I really can't think of anything more she could have done to make things easier or more pleasant."
Chuck & Gayla Simpson, Oklahoma City, OK
"You do the best job of marketing of anyone I have ever seen. If you ever come to Dallas please let me buy your dinner."
Reverse Mortgage Specialist, Certified Senior Advisor, Bank of Texas, Texas
"I just wanted to let you know that we really do appreciate the hustle you have put in this deal. You work like I do and I like that. You always return calls, reply to e-mail and you have been a great help...We realize this is not making you a rich woman or anything but we think you are a great realtor and will let anyone we know looking for something down there what a great job you do! I am betting you will do really well and have a very successful company....!! What sold me on you was seeing your signs everywhere, You had a nice professional look that made me remember you (I advertise like that too) When I called you and discussed how no one was interested in a measly lot and you were so helpful, I knew I had made a match!! Thanks for finding what I really wanted...guess that was just part of a greater plan for us! We appreciate you,
Thanks, Canda and Sam White, Shawnee, OK
"My husband and I have sold and purchased approximately 8 homes between the two of us. Karen Weldin was by far the best REALTOR we have ever dealt with. I have dealt with REALTORS who made you feel like you were imposing upon them if you asked questions or requested assistance. Karen was so friendly and knowledgeable that we were completely at ease with her at the helm of our buying experience, even though the situation was unique in that there is a current renter on the property and there were many additional issues that do not normally apply. She took extra effort to get us any information we requested as quickly as she could. Karen has a very good knowledge regarding the area and the Lake Corps of Engineers' rules and regulations which was also very important to us. I look forward to referring my friends and family to her as a REALTOR and also hope to maintain a personal friendship with her."
Sincerely, Suzy Warner, Choctaw, OK
"Karen Weldin was instrumental in finding us the perfect lake getaway! She worked hard night and day and within just a few weeks found us exactly what we were looking for. We don?t know what we would have done without her. There was just no way we could have found such a great place on our own. We feel so lucky to have her as our REALTOR«! She?s the best!"
Sincerely, Bill & Lisa Hunt, Blanchard, OK
"Dear Karen, Thanks for your professionalism in helping me to sell my Blue Water Oaks property. I have had it listed with another company, but I could not determine they did much (if anything) for me. I was surprised when you sent me the post card that you used to advertise the lots. During my adult life, I have moved approximately 30 times and have owned several homes during that time. It has been my experience that Realtors are typically agents more for the buyer than seller. I have not had good experiences with listing my homes with them. They tend to be all excited about my place until I list, then they begin telling me how it is priced too high and many other discouraging things. I found that you are the exception. You were never once discouraging or negative about my property. In the beginning, you explained pretty much in detail about what I would experience. I realized in the end that you gave me information as accurate as possible. I was pleased that you accurately described how much I could expect to receive for the property. This surprised me. You never changed a single detail from the beginning and I always felt that you were working hard to move my property. You kept me up to date on what was going on during the whole process - very nice! Please know that I consider you one of the most honest and professional people I have worked with in the Real Estate Business. I am forever grateful for your performance. If you ever need a reference, you can be assured that I will have good things to say about you."
Luther Lott, Little Rock, Arkansas
"I have just recently had the pleasure of working with Karen Weldin. I have purchased several homes in the past and never have come across someone that is so professional but personable at the same time. Karen would always inform me of any new developments without delay. In my estimation Karen encompasses the true definition of professionalism. She would always take into consideration my concerns and questions without hesitation, taking every effort to resolve them. I would not hesitate in recommending Karen Weldin to anyone that was looking for a top-notch realtor."
James Peters, Eufaula, OK
"Karen Weldin was a pleasure to work with. She is extremely helpful, a consummate professional and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a REALTOR® who can promptly get things done!"
Rick and Karen Arduine, Oklahoma City, OK
"Karen is the kind of REALTOR« everyone who's "house searching" hopes for. She is a true asset to her profession and will be highly recommended by us to others."
Jim and Cherry Nippert, Eufaula, OK
"Ms. Weldin moved my lake lots in less than a month when others were unable to do so after six months (on 2 or 3 occasions when I listed them). Furthermore she was able to convince the buyers to waive conditions predecent to accomplish the sales. I would recommend her to others."
Rick Healy, Oklahoma City, OK
"Thanks so much for keeping us updated...you are a great REALTOR®!!!"
Toni & Steve Lee, Fairfax, VA
"I would highly recommend Karen Weldin to anyone looking for real estate in the Eufaula area. During our initial conversation by phone, Karen was very thorough in helping me determine my exact needs and wants. This was crucial because I was coming in from out of town and had limited time to view listings. Of the properties we examined, I ended up purchasing the very first one shown. A perfect match! I am anxiously planning to build my vacation retreat in the very near future. Thank you!"
John McKivigan, Pittsburgh, PA
To Karen: "We just wanted to thank you for the wonderful experience of helping us find a great lakehouse. We had little time to look each time we came due to the fact we live out of town and you made the entire process easy for us. We couldn't have done it without you. We will definitely recommend you to any of our friends and family."
Roy and Brandi McFarland, Forney, TX
"Dear Karen, We love our new lake house! What a wonderful experience we had with you. Words cannot express our gratitude to you. Your professionalism is astounding! There are several points we would like to highlight. You were very available, you returned our phone calls immediately, and you kept us informed on every detail. Also, since we are ?out of town? owners, you have followed up and been very helpful AFTER the closing as well as before--this has been very important to us!Working with you has been a dream. Thank you for everything.
Sincerely,Cathy & Mike Cross, Oklahoma City
"On a recent trip (business / vacation) to the mid-west, after doing some research on obtaining some investment properties in the Missouri / Oklahoma area, I ventured into Eufaula Oklahoma. After speaking with various different Realtors, and realizing they weren't very helpful. (especially since I wasn't looking for a million dollar Lake home). I came across one that seemed to show an interest, Her name is Karen Weldin with Creative Brokers...Karen was very good at communicating with me about the transaction and also my future needs. She was always available and promptly returned my phone calls when I had questions. When I do Real Estate in the Eufaula / Eastern Oklahoma area... I would love to have Karen be there with me. Thank You Karen.... keep up the GOOD work."
Henry Johnson, Washington
"My wife and I have dealt with other REALTORS and have never been able to get the service Karen gave us. She helped us with the closing and made sure all things were in order before we closed on our house. Karen also followed up and helped us with other things after her job was done. It was a real pleasure working with someone that was always friendly, knowledgeable and professional as she was through all the processes. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to buy real estate."
