Karen was nothing short of professional every step of the way!! We have had an incredibly stressful time leading up to the purchase of our current home, (relocating towns, selling and purchasing businesses and trying to purchase a property here in Christchurch), and Karen made a somewhat "most stressful time of my life" into the easiest and most pain free situation. Karen was always available no matter what the questions were etc, and nothing was ever too hard, or too much of a problem. In the past 6 months of looking at over 200 properties, and continuous trips up and down to and from Oamaru, not one agent shined or went the extra mile for us like Karen did. Buying a house in Christchurch is not easy, with earthquakes etc, and all of the insurance information and EQC info I had to provide our insurance company, she totally took on board getting sorted with the Vendors. Karen is very good at her job, I love her no fuss and calming personality. If I ever sell again, Karen will be the very first one I will be calling!! Keep up the great work Karen.

Karen was really professional in our dealings with her. She was attentive to our requests, she provided answers to our questions promptly. On several occasions when we asked for access to the property for different reasons, she ensured we had quick access to it. She went extra mile by giving us more information about the neighbourhood, the other properties around and some tips on how we could make the property look nicer. Overall, she was there for us from A-Z of the purchase and was really helpful. She made our first home purchase experience smoother and less stressful than we ever imagined it would be.

Karen provided professional friendly service as she always does, pleasure doing business.

Karen was extremely helpful throughout the whole process. She has a genuine desire to assist and please everyone concerned and definitely went the extra mile. Whenever we had queries she answered them immediately and out of all the Real Estate Agents I have dealt with to date she would have to be the best. I hope she is well recognised within your business as she was amazing thanks.

Warrick and Loyis

Karen's professionalism, friendliness and good advice helped us in the difficult decisions we had to make. Her advice and encouragement, when we first approached her about what we could do to make Mum's property more saleable, was just what we needed to hear. We would recommend her to anyone. We were impressed with her effort, the advertising, and her selling ability. To have so many offers in such a short time frame was more than we expected. Thank you Karen


Karen was most professional but very friendly. She made it easy and hassle free for us to buy. I would certainly recommend her.

Geoff and Janet

Karen is very professional and knowledgeable. She is committed to her vendors and will deliver what she promises. This is our fourth property transaction with her.

James & Laraine

I felt she was honest and forthcoming with information. She followed up but was not too pushy.

Scott and Anita

Karen obviously knows how to sell properties in the Styx Mill area, bringing clients to the Country Club to encourage buyers to consider seriously the property on sale. She was always on time with her feedbacks from prospective buyers during the open homes, and that was very helpful. To be honest, we didn't have the chance at all to view the adverts in the different media, as we put our full trust on her.

Len and Rose

Karen was very friendly, welcoming, efficient and professional in her dealings with us.

Robert and Judith

Karen went the second mile in selling our house. As we were living out of town at the time she arranged picking up documents from me at work to get the contract signed

Karen is very easy to deal with and is always professional. She arranged viewings of the property for us and for builders report without any hassle. Karen attended the auction with us and also assisted us with the final negotiations of that auction process.

Phil and Jeanette

Karen is well spoken, friendly and was very competent at doing her job of representing my wife and I in the sale of our property. Her presentations were very professional, she did a wonderful job with clients at the open homes, & her after hours follow-up with interested clients was excellent. Her communications with the purchaser, myself & legal reps was excellent. Well done, Karen!!

Lester & Sylvia

Very nice and friendly person who worked very hard for us selling our property.

Irene Hawkins

"We listed our home with Karen after an unsuccessful period on the market with another real estate agent. My husband and I were thrilled with the results. Suddenly we had good numbers of people viewing the home and it was clear that the change in marketing strategies that Karen had suggested were working well. As a result we sold our property at a great price and in good time. We totally appreciate the professionalism of Karen and her positive outlook. Her cheerfulness and helpfulness made the process much less stressful. She maintained good contact with us, passing on comments from prospective buyers and always left comment sheets after open homes. She followed up on each open home by calling back visitors and then reporting back to us."
