Karen Johnson

Commercial Real Estate Agent

Karen was raised in the Clear Lake/Seabrook area of South East Texas, and eventually established roots in the LaPorte/Deer Park area to raise a family where she continued to be actively involved in the local school district and community for nearly 20 years. She is married and currently living in Montgomery County.

Karen’s career journey began in 1992 when she entered the field of industrial medicine administration. During her 14 years in this sector, not only did she develop a passion for the business side of operations, she learned how to cultivate solid client relationships in which she carried with her when she transitioned to family practice for the following 11 years.

At the onset of her real estate career in 2020, Karen’s focus was primarily on residential and commercial leasing and contract management. After examining what she enjoyed most in her previous occupational roles, she quickly discovered that her true passion is with commercial real estate. Ironically, Karen has always had a unique interest in self storage.

As a member of the National Association of Realtors (NAR), Texas Realtors Association (TRA), Platinum Houston Association of Realtors (HAR) member, and Texas Self Storage Association (TSSA), she is well-equipped with the knowledge and resources to guide her clients through the complex real estate market.

Karen’s 25 years of experience in business roles and client services have been a major contribution in her past and current success in real estate. This combined with the drive to embrace new challenges makes Karen Johnson an excellent partner for clients looking to invest in self-storage or RV park properties across Texas.

Client Testimonials

Great job executed by CRD Realty!! Thank you for the professionalism throughout.

Ken Milstead

Owner | Milstead PC Investments LLC

I cannot speak enough about Ryan as my commercial real estate agent. His professionalism, knowledge of the market, honesty and hard work ethics are very much appreciated.

Ryan listed my storage facility and within 2 days on the market he came to me with an offer. After coming to an agreement on the offer, Ryan made each step of the way a simple process and we closed on my  facility with no issues.

Soon after closing I received a gift in the mail from him to show his appreciation. He is certainly a top notch guy that listens and gets the job done.

I would recommend Ryan to anyone that is thinking about selling their property.

Heath Leax

Owner | My Storage Locker

We worked hard to build and maintain our 100,000 sqft facility over the last 15 years without giving much thought to selling it, but with the recent increases in property values we decided it might be time.

Selecting the right broker for this property was important as we wanted it to be marketed as a Premium facility and the listing needed reflect that.  Ryan exceeded our expectations with his listing and brought us multiple offers to choose from within two weeks of listing the property.

Ryan helped us navigate through the offers to carefully select which buyer to engage with and ultimately sell to.  We can’t thank Ryan enough for the effort he invested into this sale and his commitment to help all the way to closing!

Owner | Corporate Woods Storall

Ryan made this purchase easy. His information package was well organized, clearly presented and insightful. He included a custom area map that communicated what was special about the area and alerted me that this was a special opportunity. Ryan understands how to market storage.

I want to thank you for making a difficult time in our lives a  “relatively painless experience”.  It has been a pleasure working with you!  We appreciate that you have always made yourself available and have shown patience and understanding.  Your kindness, attention to detail and prompt responses will be long remembered.  I know that it took me a couple of years to finally decide to sell the storage facility and hope I didn’t frustrate you too much.

Should the need ever arrive to buy or sell real estate again, I would not hesitate to call on you!!

Thank you, buddy!

Ryan was great to work with, I would highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling commercial property, especially storage facilities. His knowledge of the local market combined with his work ethic took the stress out of selling. He was always honest with us and available for questions at all times.

Ryan Dooley with CRD Realty has been one of the most fortuitus meetings for my companies. Since meeting in January 2020 he has worked with me on the pursuit of several self-storage opportunities. The first investment was a typical deal which came out for sale.

The next deal was one that I had always wanted to purchase and, after many months of contacting the owner, who was already under contract to sell it, when the current buyer fell out, Ryan was able to get the seller to simply write a contract with us without remarketing the deal.

Most recently, on one of Ryan’s best efforts, he bird dogged a deal which was next to a facility we currently own. This deal took quite some time and the seller was never really ready to sell. Then, as is always the case with Ryan, he made a fateful follow up call to the seller and he was ready to retire and sell the property. Because of his efforts a property which we could no longer expand, now has another 2.5 acres and we are already in the site planning stage.

To this day, he continues to pursue market and off market deals which will grow my portfolio. I am confident our next deal is just around the corner.

I have no doubt that he wants to help me. He wants to grow my business. He wants me to be successful. To that end, he helps in any way possible. From gather competitive prices, to phone calls, to proformas, and direct mail campaigns, there is nothing he won’t do in the pursuit of my goals.

And, while I have described deals we have closed, in truth, he has pursued many more deals that have not materialized. But, deal or no deal, it has never changed the way he approaches his commitment.

As for Ryan’s character, you will not find a more thoughtful, honest, trustworthy, and just generally good guy than him. I have come to know him as a God loving family man and I am honored to also call him a friend.

When we decide to sell our portfolio, it will come with the confidence that we have entrusted this sizable transaction to someone who will exceed our expectations.

What is a Broker Opinion of Value?

As a free resource to you with no obligation, CRD Realty can provide you with a thorough Broker Opinion of Value no matter where your Self-Storage facility or RV Park is located in Texas. For select areas, CRD Realty can also provide rental rates for competitor self-storage facilities.

In order to complete a BOV on your behalf there are a number of financial and management reports that need to be shared such as:

  • Profit and Loss Reports
  • Management Summaries
  • Rent Rolls
  • Tax Statements

Obtaining a Broker Opinion of Value (BOV) is usually the first step in the process of determining whether a property is ready to sell. A Broker Opinion of value represents an estimated sale price for a property. It is not the same as the opinion of value in an appraisal developed by a licensed appraiser under the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. A BOV will provide you, the owner, with an accurate opinion on what the market will value your property at based on its historic performance, usually the preceding 12 months, also known as the “Trailing-12”. CRD Realty will not only show a valuation based on historic numbers, but we will also show valuation based on potential numbers using market rates and adjusted expenses.
