She has grown up on the beach and in the hospitality industry, with her family owning a hotel directly on the ocean. After spending 18 years in Daytona Beach and learning the family business, she decided to study Hospitality Administration at Florida State University. In 1993, she moved to Orlando after graduation and accepted a job with The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Hotel and was a resident of Central Florida ever since. Her professional experience in the local Hospitality Industry includes 14 years of working in the Hospitality Industry with exceptional companies like Starwood Hotels and Universal Studios Orlando. As a happily married, mother of three boys, they moved from the hustle and bustle of downtown Orlando to the quiet suburb of Windermere to raise their boys. Over the years, she has acquired personal experience with real estate investments, property management as well as a passion for real estate.

They have over 50 years in the industry with 51 real estate offices through out Florida and South Georgia. Watson is a locally owned, family business that started in Jacksonville Beach. She was inspired by the great Floridian success story of Bill Watson the founder, president and CEO. The Watson corporate environment maintains high standards of quality, integrity and honesty in an industry that struggles with those ideals. It is what attracted her to this firm. Learning from an industry leader with an impeccable reputation was of the utmost importance for her real estate career.

I worked with Karla Ryan from Watson Realty Corp. to sell my house. Her professional advice and experience was invaluable. From start to finish, Karla was knowledgeable and always available to answer my questions. She provided a personalized restage and virtual photography for my home while directing the entire process. The restage transformed my home into a premium property! When it came time to negotiate offers, Karla was a skilled negotiator who helped me get the best possible price for my home. Overall, I would highly recommend Karla Ryan to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

My wife and I wanted to find a second home in the Orlando area. A place where I could stay while working in the area and a place we could be together during the cold months of the midwest. Karla was amazing and very patient with us. She showed us a wide range of options and she kept us informed of opportunities as they arose. We finally found just the right place and are very happy with how seamless the entire process was. Karla’s knowledge of the area and real estate helped tremendously. My wife and I both highly recommend Karla.

Karla was amazing! She is very dedicated and knowledgeable. Karla returned all of my emails or calls quickly and helped us through the process every step of the way! We could not have done it without her! She took the time to show us around and helped us find our forever home. I never felt rushed or like "just another client". Her warm demeanor and willingness to help is outstanding. Highly recommend!

Karla Ryan was a pleasure to have as my real estate agent. I would give her 5 stars. She came to our initial meeting with very helpful information and explained everything in a way that showed her expertise in real estate. Karla had a team that took care of everything I needed to put my house up for sale. She did all the work for me and I really appreciate how seamlessly everything fell into place. My house sold in one day and she was there to help me through it all. I liked her professionalism, immediate responses to my questions, and knowledge of our local real estate market. I would recommend Karla Ryan and Watson Realty to anyone looking to sell their home. She was a pleasure to work with and goes above and beyond for her clients. Thank you Karla for the outstanding service.Geri Biscuiti

Karla helped us buy a new house and sell our current house. She was awesome to work with! She really helped us prepare for the sale and as a result our house sold in a weekend and at asking price. On the purchase of our new house she was able to negotiate a lot of upgrades and closing costs (new construction). Thanks to Karla the whole buying and selling process was so much easier than we anticipated. I would highly recommend Karla!

Karla was such a great realtor to work with. She was not only our realtor but became our friend. We also felt as though her job did not stop when the sale was complete. Karla continued to help us get acclimated to the area and was ready to answer any questions we had. I would highly recommend Karla for all of your house-hunting needs- she is the BEST!

Karla was wonderful to work with. She ensured all details, large or small, were covered every step of the way. From the staging of our home, to the many open houses, to meeting with the inspector to ensure all the qualities of our home were understood, she was there. She also saved us $1000's in the negotiation process. She was very responsive to all of our questions or needs. We highly recommend Karla.
