Karen Pokorney is known as the “ENERGIZED” Realtor and if you have met her, you would know why. A real estate agent since 1993, she began her career in Illinois where she was named Top Sales Agent in the state by Realty Executives from 1994 to 1999. In 1999, Karen and her husband, Brad, who recently celebrated their 40th wedding Anniversary, moved to Arizona with their 5 children, leaving behind the Windy City and cold weather.

Karen, now a grandmother of 5, enjoys bowling, Mah Jongg, Bunco, working out, reading and going to the movies when she’s not out selling homes. Whatever your real estate needs, Karen Pokorney with the AZ Real Estate Group and Realty Executives is the real estate professional who can help you accomplish all your real estate goals!

Kimberli Edington





Kimberli was born in a small suburb of Chicago into a world of sales, as her mother has been in Real Estate since she was a year old. She graduated with honors and a degree in Fashion Merchandising while she worked as a wardrobe stylist in sales with a high-end retail company. Deciding to begin a serious career, Kimberli meticulously interviewed her mom to know the ins-and-outs of the real estate world, and knew it would be the perfect way to spend her days. She has interacted with people from all over the world, and easily adapts to the wide variety of their personalities. Kimberli is very excited to find houses for people they can soon call their home!

Ashleigh Pokorney

Assistant to Karen Pokorney



Ashleigh was born in a small beach town in Florida and moved to Arizona when she started High School. She is married to Karen’s son Brian & they have an amazing son Landon. Ashleigh is Karen’s assistant, the Transaction Coordinator for the team & handles our advertising/marketing and social media. Ashleigh is currently in the process of getting her Real Estate license, but enjoys being behind the scenes, so she can still be a stay at home mom!

Brad Pokorney



Bradley (or Brad as he prefers to be called) is Karen’s husband and he obtained his license in 2002 to assist Karen and the team in many ways. Not only does he sell homes, he acts as “bodyguard” for the women when they are sitting open houses so they never have to sit alone. He takes care of signs and lockboxes and the running around we are often too busy to take care of. He is a people person, having owned restaurants in the past. He is knowledgeable about communications after having worked for the telephone company for over 25 years. He was also on the fire department back in Illinois which makes him a very caring, devoted individual. He has a strong sense of humor; at least he thinks he’s funny!  He is a valuable asset to the team!

Haley Dake-Anderson



Haley was born and raised in Parker, Colorado where she grew up showing horses and playing competitive softball. She graduated from Colorado State University with a degree in Agriculture
Business, and then began her own business as a professional reining horse trainer.

She moved to Scottsdale, Arizona to grow her horse business in 2008, where she met Karen Pokorney, while searching for a home. In 2013 things changed quickly, when she had a life changing event, breaking her back in an accident with a young horse, and being forced to end her horse career.

It was then she talked with Karen, and decided to take on the world of REAL ESTATE. As soon as she was cleared from bed rest she went straight to school and started to fall in love with this new career.

Haley LOVES being a part of the real estate world, and finds so much joy in helping clients find the “perfect” home. Haley’s career was not the only change that happened after her accident, in 2014 her husband, Isaac, and her welcomed a baby boy and now in 2017 they have welcomed a baby girl!!

Now in her free time, Haley spends her time being a Mommy, and riding and showing her own personal reining horses.
