Director • United States
Karen Thompson joined Cushman & Wakefield Pacific in 2016, to combine her diverse talents with Team TNT, partnering with Patrick Thompson and his broad marketing and business experience, specializing in office and investments, for over 30 years.
Karen lends her client-focused attitude and growing market knowledge to the TNT office team of Cushman & Wakefield Pacific. The team is well-versed in all aspects of purchase and leasing of offices, including multi-tenant buildings, offering expertise in tenant representation and contract negotiation. Team TNT is committed to providing the most valuable tools and resources to meet your commercial real estate needs... serving the areas of Bakersfield and the Central Coast.
Karen is proud of her local roots as a second-generation Bakersfield High Driller, and graduate at BC and CSUB with concentration on Business and HR Management. Thompson’s family farming experience was beneficial as she started her career with a marketer of agricultural products in the central valley. Her career later turned to the oil industry, where Karen was successful in the corporate energy environment for over 25 years, working as a Supervisor and HR Advisor to operations and management teams.
Karen regularly gives much of her time to support community job development and education projects, and currently serves as Chair of the Bakersfield College Foundation.
