Karen is the best real estate agent we have ever dealt with, and we have dealt with a few over the years. Her initial appraisal was well considered. However, it was also Karen's eye for detail, styling suggestions for photos, her enthusiasm, positivity, constant smile, and honesty that helped us make our choice to go with Karen & Laguna Real Estate over five other agencies. We were very pleased with our choice. Karen put in the hard yards, took me shopping in order make the most of the photo shoot, helped with the styling, oversaw the photo shoot, and spent hours on every single open inspection (and there were many of those as the property attracted a lot of interstate and local interest) showing the 29 acre property. We were updated after every inspection, and warmly introduced to potential interstate buyers. The experience of selling with Karen was rewarding and gratifying - although somewhat terrifying, as the property sold so fast! Congrats to Karen. We have no hesitation in highly recommending her as an agent. Karen & Gordon

We cannot thank you enough, Karen, for selling our property in Noosaville. We have had the property on the market for a few years without any success and it was hard work on our end to find out what the real estate agents were actually doing. Being based in Melbourne made it so much harder. Then you come along Karen taking over our property sale and we thought "here we go again", but we were wrong. From the moment you introduced yourself to us, you were always proactive and always provided updates and feedback on inspections conducted. Not once did we need to chase you up to see how things were going. Karen your professionalism and integrity could not be faulted. We would not hesitate in recommending you to our friends that have properties in Noosaville when they are ready to sell or purchase. Thank you again Karen! Terry & Margaret Hirt

Karen Hardcastle sold my property within two days of listing it (after it had been sluggishly sitting with another agent for six months). Karen is motivated, optimistic, enthusiastic and works hard whilst maintaining a strong sense of fairness and professionalism. It was my absolute pleasure to meet her. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Karen to any seller or buyer who is looking for an upfront, honest and hardworking real estate agent. Marina Constanti
