Buyer’s Agent, Listing Agent
About Karen Samenuk
I am thrilled to bring my passion for real estate, strong knowledge of my community and attorney skills to assist my clients in all of their real estate needs. As a native of North Andover, I experienced first hand the many wonderful offerings of the Andovers. For this reason, my husband and I returned to North Andover to raise our three children. I draw on this personal knowledge of my community, including its school systems, businesses and neighborhoods, to effectively guide both buyers and sellers. I also offer the experience gained as a Massachusetts attorney to negotiate real estate transactions and review the entire process with a keen attention to detail on behalf of my clients.
I have enjoyed volunteering in my community in many ways throughout the years. Most recently, as a realtor, I created a program called “helping homes” which is inspired by the essential role local non-profits have in our community. At every closing, I invite my client to select from one of four local non-profits, and I donate $100 to their chosen organization. I am happy to be able to support my community in this way while engaging my clients in this giving program.
I joined The Peggy Patenaude Team at William Raveis because I share the same high standards of work ethic and professionalism. I am proud to offer my enthusiasm for all things real estate together with my team’s decades of award-winning real estate experience to expertly guide my clients. I strive with each transaction to achieve the complete satisfaction of my clients in their home buying or selling experience.

How Can I Help?
It was a long time coming when my husband and I decided to downsize. I cannot say enough about Karen Samenuk. Not only is she very knowledgeable and very helpful, she stood by us every step of the way during this process. Karen helped us find our new home and listened to all our needs. Her skills are excellent, and she made our journey stress free and very enjoyable to work with. We will be eternally grateful to Karen Samenuk and the Peggy Patenaude Team, without them none of this would be possible.

I highly recommend Karen as I have worked with her on Buying my dream home and selling my condo. Her attention to detail following up with lawyers and the other realtors was top notch. Both transactions went off perfectly and I could not be more pleased. I Give Karen 6 stars!!!
Ed – Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Pepperell, MA
This was the second home we have listed to sell, but the experience this time around far surpasses the quality of professionalism and services from the first sale. Karen and the Peggy Patenaude team is incredibly transparent, comprehensive, and genuine. From the initial sit down with Karen to discuss the market and our home’s worth, we felt in the know through the rest of the process. The staging process transformed the appearance of the home and made it incredibly welcoming. It is no surprise that the house sold after the first weekend on the market OVER the asking price. I would without hesitation recommend Karen and The Peggy Patenaude Team looking to buy or sell.
Danielle – Purchased a Single Family home in 2021 in Easton, MA
Karen worked diligently on my behalf throughout the home selling process. She was very knowledgeable about the real estate market and the entire process. She was very detailed oriented and really listened to what I had to say. She did a great job negotiating effectively and always with my best interest in mind. I would highly recommend Karen Samenuk if you are planning to buy or sell your home. I was so impressed with this first sale that I’m using her again to sell another property.
Cathy – Sold a Multi Family home in 2021 in Chelmsford, MA
Karen Samenuk assisted us with a relocation move from California to Andover MA during COVID. We were so concerned about purchasing a home from 3500 miles away however Karen was there to support us at every step along the way. From choosing a neighborhood to fit our families needs, finding just the right home, coordinating inspections and insurance for us, Karen guided us patiently in all stages of the process from offer to closing. She was very assessable and accommodating to our many questions and special circumstances including time zone difference. Karen has an in-depth knowledge of the market and the area which was especially important to us making this move with children and from so far. We are so thankful we chose Karen to be our Massachusetts agent and highly recommend her.

Ericka – Bought a Single Family home in 2020 in Andover, MA
It was a pleasure working with Karen. She sold our late parents’ home of 60 years, and, during what was an emotional time for our family, remained extremely patient, professional, and considerate. She explained and kept us informed every step along the way (even including checking in with us while she was out of the country and putting up with conference calls with my four siblings and me). Karen is kind and honest, and she worked unbelievably hard throughout the process of selling our house. The fact that she has a legal background is also a huge asset. I hold her in the highest personal and professional regard and recommend her without reservation.
– Sold a Single Family home in 2020 in Andover, MA
Karen recently helped us sell our parents’ home where our family grew up. As you can imagine, it was an emotional time for us, and the fact that Karen had 5 of us siblings to deal which made it a lot more challenging for her. I have to say that Karen did an unbelievable job for us starting with the original appraisal, the listing, addressing our many questions and needs through the entire process, and finally the negotiations. Her level of knowledge, commitment, and involvement were unsurpassed. And, when Karen was away for a few days, she had Peggy Patenaude fill in to create seamless coverage and support. I highly recommend Karen and will definitely have her help us with future real estate transactions.

Ed – Bought a Condo home in 2018 in North Andover, MA
In selling our family home of 60 years we found Karen Samenuk of William Raveis Real Estate to be extremely helpful. She had a very strong sense of what she could do to enhance the interior of our home to make it more pleasing to a prospective buyer. Her warmth and positive attitude assured us from the very beginning that we were on the right track with Karen and in fact the house sold in just 2 weeks. We highly recommend Karen Samenuk and The Peggy Patenaude Team at William Raveis Real Estate.

– HL Plunket – Bought a Single Family home in 2019 in Methuen, MA
I can highly recommend Karen Samenuk. She just assisted us to sell our home and did an outstanding job, negotiating offers above our asking price and closing at significantly above our asking price. Karen provided a detailed analysis of the market and our home value, adjusting the price upwards because recent sales warranted it. She provided advice on staging our house, including bringing in some staging items of her own. She acted quickly and coordinated listing the house and setting up an open house within less than 2 weeks. The house looked great and we got multiple offers immediately with an accepted offer within a few days of the open house. Karen provided great communication throughout the process. She is knowledgeable about the market and the process, conscientious and always had our interests at heart. I would recommend Karen Samenuk at William Raveis if you are looking to buy or sell your home.
