Karen O’Donovan

Mortgage Loan Originator


I am an expert in understanding and analyzing the mortgage financing needs of any client. With more than 20 years of experience in the Mortgage and Real Estate industries, I am a strong and reliable resource to have on both sides of a transaction. I’m skilled in: FHA, VA, USDA, Conventional Mortgages, and am a Construction Loan Specialist, which allows me to put my clients in a mortgage that best suits their needs.

After being named Silverton’s Most Improved Loan Officer in 2016, I was also named to the President’s Club in 2017, 2019 and 2020. My dedication to my clients’ interests, as well as my approach to each unique situation, makes me invaluable to have on your team.

I live in Myrtle Beach with my husband of 44 years, Ed. I have one son, Michael (he also works for Silverton!), and two grandsons, Jude & Ezra. I enjoy reading, swimming and beach time. I’ve volunteered with the local chapter of the American Red Cross, also have been involved with Ground Zero, a Myrtle Beach-based charitable organization. Each loan closed with Silverton has a donation applied to The Silverton Foundation for critically ill children, so they may keep their homes during times of illness. I also donate a portion of each loan myself to The Foundation in the borrowers honor.
