Picture of Kara Brooks - realtor with Premier Sotheby's International Realty in St. Pete Florida

A finance and marketing major in college, Kara was drawn to a career in the law and, after graduating from Boston University School of Law, opted for the highly demanding world of trial work where she quickly became a go-to lawyer at two of the largest law firms in the Northeast. Whether working on a coverage dispute for a major insurer involving hundreds of millions of dollars in claims, a lawsuit against Big Tobacco on behalf of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, or commercial disputes spanning breach of contract, product liability and intellectual property, Kara was renowned for her work ethic and attention to detail, earning the admiration of colleagues, clients, judges and even adversaries in the process.

Kara believes the best way to generate interest in a property is to list it with a professional who has the resources and talent to create world-class marketing.

Kara's career took an unexpected twist when her interests in travel and photography led her to create a website for the island of St. Barts in the French West Indies that quickly became the second-most visited website in the Caribbean and a business in its own right. Kara then authored a cookbook showcasing the French/Creole cuisine for which St. Barts is justly famous and profiling the chefs and owners who have been drawn to the island from all over the world.  


Inspired by the passion of these remarkable people, she then took the plunge and opened a farm-to-fork restaurant on a 27-acre farm she owned with her husband in Connecticut that attracted the interest of the food press, earning accolades such as a rating of Extraordinary by The New York Times, the number one destination restaurant in New England from Boston Magazine and, ultimately, a nomination of Best Chef in the Northeast from The James Beard Foundation.

Kara and her husband moved to St. Petersburg nearly five years ago to be closer to Kara's parents and were immediately smitten by the stunning beaches, amazing wildlife, wonderful restaurants and numerous independent businesses, museums and galleries that are on abundant display in this lovely slice of paradise. Kara would be delighted to share her enthusiasm for St. Pete with you, and, drawing upon the expertise and insights gained throughout her multi-faceted career, guide you through the very important process of buying or selling a home in this market as a seasoned advocate who always puts the interests of her customers first.


Luxury is an EXPERIENCE that all are entitled to - it is not a price point. As a real estate advisor, Kara believes that anything can be achieved through dedication, hard work and tenacity. Whether working on a small house or a multi-million dollar estate, Kara provides her buyers and sellers with extraordinary client service, skilled negotiation and attention to every detail. The key to Kara's unparalleled client representation lies in her legal training and experience as a trial lawyer, exemplary market knowledge, professionalism and tireless work ethic.

“Kara was professional, efficient, and very helpful. As in most closings, there were small issues which popped up - which Kara managed efficiently and professionally. She was very knowledgeable about our market and helped us set a sales price that was realistic and fair. As a result, we were under contract in 36 hours. The entire process went smoothly and efficiently, from our initial meeting to our closing. I would use her again without hesitation."
