Karen and Heidi were professional, knowledgeable and very easy to work with and made the sale of my house a pleasant experience rather than a nightmare.
Having lived in Kangaroo Point for the best part of 30 years I have seen many real estate agents come and go, apart from one true professional who has worked diligently in the Kangaroo Point and East Brisbane area for the past 20 or so years. When I made the decision to sell my much treasured home the choice of agent was easy and I contacted Karen. Right from day one, Karen's professionalism, dedication, knowledge, down to earth nature and vast experience made selling my house a most enjoyable experience and I would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone looking to sell in the area.

Hi Karen We would like to convey our thanks to you for the excellent service you provided to us throughout the sale of our two properties in Woolloongabba. We initially contacted you because we recognized that, as a very active, long term agent in our area, your local knowledge and extensive buyer data base would be highly beneficial during our sale process. We were not disappointed! The first sale of our family home in Qualtrough Street, Woolloongabba took place during a difficult period in the real estate market in early 2012. However, you were able to generate strong interest in our property from the very beginning and a successful contract was achieved within 6 weeks of listing. The second sale was achieved even more speedily! Having just finished a renovation on another property in nearby Lewis St by early 2013, we invited you around to give us your opinion. You were able to match a buyer you had been working with for a number of months to our property and secure an attractive offer in less than a week. Not only did you achieve a totally stress-free sale for us but you were able to negotiate certain conditions which made the whole sale and moving process so much easier for us. Thank you, Karen, for your honest, straight-forward approach and the calm and professional manner in which you always conduct yourself. Regards, Denise & Terry Bowden
Dear Karen, I am writing on behalf of my business partners, Wendy Ribbands, Lindy Kerr and myself to thank you for all dealings over the past eleven years and in relation to the purchase and then later sale of our investment property at 44 Llewellyn Street Kangaroo Point. When we brought the property some 11 years ago through you, you had both happy buyers and happy sellers. This was again achieved by you on 26th of July 2014. Being interstate owners it was always very comforting to us to have you at the end of the phone at anytime to advise, assist and liaise as appropriate. You were instrumental in helping and guiding us in the maintenance of the property and then when we decided to sell, in helping, advising and guiding us through that process to achieve a very good outcome for us. We are delighted with auction outcome and the early settlement of our property. Yours Sincerely Geoff Francis
Karen epitomises the very best features of a Real Estate Consultant.
Nothing is too much trouble for Karen. She did not have an easy sale with our property but not once did she offer a negative vibe. We were very pleased with her commitment to us.
