I couldn’t be happier that I chose Karlene to market my biggest asset. From the get go Karlene was focused on exposing my home/property to as many buyers as possible. She came up with an substantial marketing program and successfully reached a broad audience of buyers actively seeking property on the shore. It was important to me that she reached out to as many other agents as possible to ensure that we had a competitive auction. Nothing was too much trouble for Karlene –she made a stressful situation so much easier! And the end result was that I achieved a result that I am very happy with. I highly recommend Karlene to anyone seeking to sell their property in Auckland. I’d be more than happy to take a call if you have any questions about this testimonial.Bruce Pearson
I highly recommend Karlene to anyone considering selling their home. Karlene adds value from the very first meeting with her vision of how the property should be presented to optimal effect. She continued to sell my property even after we had not been able to get the right offer in the initial period. Even after the sign had come down Karlene was working open homes and pushing to achieve a sale result that meet my targeted price. I was over the moon that Karlene was able to find the right buyer and achieve a great price for me –she is an outstanding real estate professional that will add value to your sale.Gary Brooker
We are extremely happy with the service that Karlene provided. She added value from the get go through her advice on how to present our house right through to practical assistance with builders and painting. She was able to achieve a price for our home that more than met our expectations. Not only that but Karlene also helped us through the auction process to buy our wonderful new home. We unconditionally recommend Karlene as a Real Estate Salesperson when you want to achieve the best price for the sale of your home!Anna McHardy & Cyril Groisard
I'll be honest, when it comes to real estate agents, lawyers, car sales people...I'm reserved and pessimistic about their intentions and their 'sales pitch’. We were going to sell our family home of over 40 years and it wasn't just a low point for us as a family, but I personally felt we were going to have a very stressful time. Kalene was highly recommended to us and I now know why. When we first arranged to meet Karlene, she came incredibly prepared and we were immediately put at ease. Karlene is warm and inquisitive. She has an arsenal of handy contacts at her disposal and she knows value when she sees it. Yet we decided to hear out other agents because she seemed to good to be true, and you can't just go with the first person you see. Right? We ended up wasting our time. Those other agents didn't even compare. We went with Karlene and the entire experience was possibly among the best you could ever have while selling a family home. Karlene gave us invaluable personalized service and alleviated the stress of the situation, for which I will forever be grateful. The striking component of her skill-set is what I can only term as the psychology of attracting potential buyers, genuinely connecting with them and keeping them interested. We ended up with several buyers who had become emotionally invested in the property. Karlene knows how to read people. She knows how to navigate the fickle minds of potential buyers and that is priceless to the seller. She sends weekly reports to you about how you're tracking. She communicates, both to you as the seller and to every potential buyer. She follows-up continuously and keeps on top of the latest positions of interested parties. In short, Karlene works very hard at drumming up the interest needed to create a successful auction. We ended up with a great amount of interest at auction that resulted in a very successful sale. So now the previously 'reserved pessimist' highly recommends that if you're considering selling property, you should definitely give Karlene a call.22 Ward Terrace, Sandringham
We first met Karlene when looking at a property she had for sale –26 Daffodil Street. We were unsure that we could bid the right price at auction for the property. Karlene suggested she come around to our home at 104 Konini Road and do an appraisal to ascertain our likely sale value. When she did this we realised that if we were successful in achieving the appraised sales price we could really have a competitive bid for the home at 26 Daffodil Street. Karlene moved at pace to get our home on the market to ascertain market feedback and see if she could achieve a sale. Karlene was able to achieve the price we wanted and she also guided us through making a successful bid for the home we had our hearts set on. At every point Karlene was proactive, with practical advice on home presentation and a great ability to build rapport with prospective buyers. We would highly recommend Karlene to anybody looking to sell or buy a home –in fact we are now getting ready to sell our rental properties in Glen Eden and we have secured Karlene’s services to achieve the results we are targeting.Philip and Monica
This is my second transaction with Karlene and I highly recommend her to anyone considering selling their home. Karlene adds value with her vision of how the property should be presented, she is very efficient friendly and patient. She went above and beyond in helping me get the house ready for market and she had an offer on my property after the first weekend of open homes - it is such a relief to be sold and ready to go forward with my plans. I was over the moon that Karlene was able to find the right buyer and achieve a great price for me –she is an outstanding real estate professional that will add value to your sale.Bruce Hawkins
Selling our family home was not an easy idea to get our heads around. It had been in our family since it was built in the 1960’s, and it was chock full of memories. However the time came and I am so thankful that we had Karlene to help us through the process. It is a very unique house, so when it came on the market we had over 100 people at the first open home. The interest was overwhelming. Over the campaign it almost felt like Karlene had moved in she showed so many people through – I think the tally is well over 250 potential buyer visits. Karlene was available at all times of the day, evening and over the weekend too. Karlene’s negotiation skills are incredible – not only did she negotiate with buyers but she also had myself and six siblings in the mix as well. She never gave in, she was always cheerful and positive and her perseverance resulted in a sale that we were happy with – she is an outstanding real estate professional and nothing is too much trouble. I highly recommend Karlene to anyone looking for an agent that can truly make a stressful situation so much easier.Anna Ryan - 178 Konini Road, Titirangi
