Client Testimonials - Karen McDonald

March 2017

Amazing Agent

Karen was trustworthy, reliable, honest and did an amazing job of marketing our property. She even gave us interior design tips on how to present the property for both the photographs and open homes. Our first open home attracted over 30 buyers which in turn lead to multiple contracts on our property which sold for over the asking price. Karen was a fantastic communicator even contacting us after hours and opening the office on a Sunday so that contracts could be drawn up and signed. After the contracts were signed Karen kept us regularly updated on how our sale was progressing right through to completion. Karen made the sales process very easy and I would highly recommend her. If you are looking for an agent who can attract buyers to your property and also achieve the highest sale price for your house definitely give Karen a call.

Impressive Service

Dec 2016

Dear Karen,

This is just a brief note to thank you for your impressive service in marketing and selling my home. I could not speak highly enough of your professionalism, market knowledge and well planned and executed campaign. I also appreciated your patience and understanding in the face of some of my challenges leading up to settlement day; not to mention your congenial personality generally which made the entire selling experience a very pleasant one.

Of course most important was the great result. Your advice regarding preparing the house for sale and establishing the right asking price, coupled with your approach with interested buyers, led to the receipt of no less than five offers on the first inspection day and a sale price significantly higher than the asking price; and all that just five days after putting the house on the market. Frankly I was ‘blown away’.

I wish you and your team every success and, for my part, I’ll be more than happy to refer anyone wanting a good experience and fantastic result in selling their home to Harcourts Mudgeeraba.

Attention To Detail

Dec 2016

To whom it may concern,

I had the pleasure of dealing with Karen McDonald of Harcourts Mudgeeraba to purchase my most recent home in October 2016 was so wonderful, fantastic and personable to deal with, especially with her communication. Nothing was ever too much trouble for Karen she always greeted myself even prior to me being the final purchaser in a very professional manner.

Karens attention to detail and remembering the little personal things made the nervous process of making big purchasing decisions a lot easier.

In my line of business, I meet a lot of professionals and from this experience I would be more than happy to recommend Karen McDonald Realtor to any prospective buyer or seller. She displays all the traits you would expect to receive from your agent, and those little extras to make your experience a really pleasant one.

This was our first time selling a house, we had no idea what we were doing! Thankfully Karen made the process a lot less stressful by taking us through everything step by step and being in constant contact with us. Nothing was too much trouble for her, and ultimately she got us the best price possible for our place. She is very personable and has an extensive knowledge within the real estate business. We're extremely grateful for all that she has done for us.

Engaging Karen Was A Great Decision

Jan 2017

Using Karen McDonald to help sell our home of 12 Bernborough Place Mudgeeraba we feel was a great decision. As this was the first home we had sold, we were very unaware of all the procedures required to sell. Karen was wonderful and very patient in helping us understand and put in place what was required for sale. She was always contactable and always returned calls in the event of information she did not know or needed to research. This was always carried out promptly and accurately. Karen's personality and sheer honesty gave us great confidence that Karen could fulfil her requirements as the selling agent on our behalf. We would not hesitate to recommend or use Karen for purchase or sale in the future.
