    Laguna Real Estate is proud to welcome Karen Hardcastle to the team.  Having lived in Noosa for 20 years, Karen and her husband have bought and sold numerous properties during that time, designed and built luxury new homes and completed major renovations on existing waterfront and non-waterfront homes locally.  Karen is an accomplished interior designer who uses her skills to present every property in the best light to achieve the optimum sale price.


    With 18 years renovation experience of luxury holiday apartments and homes from Noosa to Maroochydore, Karen’s proven creativity, flair and expertise enable her to work with clients across all age groups and diverse tastes.  She has a natural flair and understanding of her clients’ requirements and expectations, together with an ability to develop rapport and inspire trust. Karen has many satisfied clients who have entrusted  her with the renovations and refurbishments of their entire property portfolios.


    Karen applies her decorating eye to her vendors’ properties, finding a compatibility with the sale presentation process and the conversion to achieving a sale. Her enthusiasm and hard work ethic is reassuring and constant— her approach is that every property is treated as her own.

  • Thank you Karen Hardcastle for facilitating the purchase of my home in Tewantin. It settled today :) and I love my new home. Excellent feedback and communication contributed to the outcome. Karen provided great advice with local knowledge for the best tradies in the local area, which was invaluable. Karen listens...not just talks.  Alex Baker
  • Our property had been on the market for 18 months with other agents. Karen took over the listing and in just over a week, it was sold. This was due to Karen Hardcastle’s enthusiasm, commitment, honesty and feedback during the sales process. We would strongly recommend Karen to any prospective clients. Ernie and Cathy Harris
  • I hope the words below let you know how much Angela and I appreciated all your help and hard work. We live in Melbourne and were looking to buy a house in Noosa, when I had trouble with real estate agents returning my enquiry calls I phoned a local resort manager for some assistance, they recommended Karen Hardcastle of Laguna Real Estate. What a fortuitous recommendation. Karen has proved to be a kind, helpful and very ethical agent. It seemed that no task was too hard for Karen, responses to emails or phone calls were swift and complete, always quicker than expected. At no time was Karen pushy and we were impressed by her honesty. Our decisions were our own but when asked Karen would provide honest advice never overstepping her ethical boundary’s. As Karen’s client we always felt our best interests were in mind and we would not hesitate to recommend Karen to anyone buying or selling real-estate in the Noosa/Tewantin area. Steve and Angela T.
  • We would like to thank you very much Karen, for your professional, open, helpful and prompt sale of our property. We would have no hesitation in recommending you to any potential sellers. Helle & Christian Linguard
  • Just a quick note to say a HUGE thank you for delivering a 5 star plus service. With all the stress of selling the house but living in a different state, the fact that you were always at the end of the phone, and if not, got back to me as soon as you could, has made this whole process so much easier. Your friendly manner and willingness to go beyond the call of duty to make sure the sale goes as smoothly as possible makes the difference between simply being efficient and being amazingly professional.  I've never sent anyone in real estate a bouquet of flowers before to show my appreciation but you deserve every leaf and petal in the bunch!  Laguna should be proud to have such wonderful staff as you. Once again, thanks for all you have done. Dr Patricia Rawlinson
  • Karen Hardcastle was with us from day one in our journey to sell our property in Noosaville.  She made very helpful suggestions regarding the dressing of our unit, arranging great photography and associated newspaper and internet advertising.  This approach along with several shop front window features led to a high number of possible purchasers on inspection days.  From our first meeting to us accepting an offer was only 4 weeks. Naturally we highly recommend Karen to you for all your Real Estate needs. Pauline & Peter Kirby - Wellington, New Zealand
  • We would like to thank Karen Hardcastle for her help in purchasing our property in Noosaville, Queensland. Karen knows the local market and not only assisted us in the purchase, but gave us good advice with our proposed renovations. We would absolutely recommend her to other prospective property buyers. Carla & Ian Wilson
  • We found Karen's level of commitment, negotiating skills and professionalism to be beyond reproach. She was always extremely helpful, courteous and patient with us, and responded quickly to our questions 24 hours a day. We would highly recommend Karen to any potential buyer or seller. Colin and Donna Symonds, Tewantin
  • Karen Hardcastle sold my property within two days of listing with her (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
  • 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 success. Being based in Melbourne, the sales process is much more difficult. We were nervious when you took over the property and thought 'here we go again' but we were wrong! From the moment you introduced herself to us, you were proactive, 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 all our friends that have properties in Noosaville when they're ready to sell or purchase. Thanks again Karen. Terry & Margaret Hirt
  • Fantastic. You are a gem. I think it maybe best if we jump a plane and come over. We wish to take you out for dinner and knock over a bottle of champy. You are a fresh breath of new air, compared to so many realtors. We contacted two other agents in Noosa and in Maroochydore only one came back to us and that was Cottontree Real Estate, who without a doubt, we would have bought from if he had of come up with a property. It turned out to be your lucky day, because of your amazing service. Thanks again.   Paul Robinson
  • Karen has undertaken a number of building assignments for us over the last fifteen years.  The work has included colour selection and coordination, kitchen and bathroom design and building restoration. From years of consulting and hands-on work on her own investment properties, Karen has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience in all aspects of building.   She is well known and respected in the industry, and can provide referrals to skilled and reliable contractors across the building trades. In all her dealings with us, Karen has demonstrated an ability to provide practical and effective solutions promptly.  Her recommendations are always sound and can always be relied on.  As a real estate consultant, Karen is able to rapidly assess value-adding opportunities for sellers and buyers alike.  Her experience has given her the skills needed to advise sellers on cost-effective ways of maximizing the sale price, and for advising buyers of the opportunities a property presents. We have been more than happy with the outcomes of her work for us, and recommend her without reservation to future clients and customers. Lucy Berry & John Smart
