About Karina Duke

My family and I relocated to the beautiful Temecula Valley 13 years ago. In all honesty, we were tired of the high cost of living, the busyness, and the lack of overall safety and security in Los Angeles county. My husband and I looked for a safer place to call home and destiny brought us here! Temecula has become my hometown and my forever home. I absolutely love it here!

Because of my love and passion for this area (affectionately known as Wine Country), I was the founder and organizer of the area's first multicultural Mom's group. I wanted to bring together families that were in the same position as mine. We all were blended in some way, either by race, culture, or age, 36 Moms in total. I’m so blessed to continue to call most of them friends even to this day.

I am also the founder of the highly recognized and popular Instagram blog - @Temecula_Livin. This blog showcases the charm of Temecula, its' local businesses, various destinations and unique experiences. My devotion to welcome newcomers with open arms while providing advice about schools, communities, places to visit and things to do has awakened my desire to continue helping and teaching people on a greater scale. So I have committed myself to the Real Estate community by using my prior banking/mortgage experience and love of the community. I have made the commitment to help entrepreneurs and families make informed Real Estate decisions by walking alongside them.

I believe in supporting and collaborating with local businesses for the sake of the community’s economic growth. A thriving and healthy economy will provide stability and support for all its' residents.
In my opinion, you can never have too much knowledge in one subject. Personal and professional growth is highly important to me to help my clientele reach their maximum success.

Because it is so important that I provide my clients with the utmost service, I have committed myself to acquiring my Home Inspection Certification. Not necessarily to be the one who performs the home inspection, but to be able to advise my clients with accurate facts and not best guesses. My commitment to evolve and educate myself does not end there, as my career continues to grow, my knowledge and expertise in this field will continue to grow with it.

I truly take great pride in understanding the goals and needs of all my clients, friends, and family. I strive to exceed their and your expectations. My goal is as your Real Estate agent, is to bring peace of mind, structure, and success in your home selling and home buyer endeavors.
