Monarque Real Estate Group
Keller Williams Realty Infinity
Former business consultant Karen Marposon joined the real estate industry in 1997, and for the last 21 years, she’s become an expert in Chicago’s western suburbs. As the principal broker for Monarque Real Estate Group with Keller Williams Realty Infinity, Marposon works with customers from all price ranges. “While many of my clients are in the luxury residential market, I also enjoy the satisfaction of finding a home for a first-time buyer, as well as determining the best return for investor clients,” she explains, adding that as a longtime resident of Naperville, she consistently sells the most properties within the downtown Naperville area.
Originally founding Monarque Real Estate, Inc. in 2003 as a boutique real estate office in the heart of downtown Naperville, Marposon spent three years as the firm’s broker/owner before affiliating with a national chain and opening the first Weichert franchise in Naperville. A year later, she sold the franchise, but remained with the new owners until they decided to close their doors in 2016. “When evaluating what to do next, I discovered Keller Williams and their culture of embracing and supporting teams,” she explains. “Establishing Monarque Real Estate Group at Keller William Realty Infinity was the perfect blending of my past experiences: the autonomy and innovation of a ‘boutique’ office under the umbrella of the largest real estate company in the world.”
Along with her team of five agents, Marposon is motivated every day to provide the best possible service for her clients and ensure that her entire team is familiar with every listing and knowledgeable about the properties’ respective neighborhood. “The group’s incredible support structure, innovative ideas and overall enthusiasm result in a positive energy from which we all benefit,” she says.
Marposon is a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, a member of the Million Dollar Guild and holds the Graduate, Realtor Institute (GRI) designation. While with Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, she earned the Realtors Pinnacle Award and was the No. 1 agent nationwide in 2010, 2011, 2014 and 2015. In her first full year with Keller Williams, she won the 2017 Top Group 3-5 Volume award for her office.
