‘When we were ready to sell our property we had 3 agents out to talk to us, one of which was Karen Wardle. Karen said she would do her best for us to get a good price. Karen went over and above our expectations, always calm and friendly and available to talk to. Tony was available if Karen wasn’t which was great. Karen achieved a marvelous price for us. We are greatly appreciative’.

We live in Sydney and were looking for an investment property in Bateau Bay. Karen Wardle had a property listed which we were interested in and bought. Karen worked well outside of business hours to help us secure the property. Karen was in constant contact letting us know what was happening with the purchase and talked us through all the steps involved very clearly. We were very happy with Karen and her team and would recommend Karen to anyone looking for a professional agent who is a pleasure to deal with.

Karen was referred by my granddaughter who had used Karen in the past and was very happy with her service. I found Karen and her team to be very polite, professional and I was always able to make contact with them. Karen kept me informed in every aspect of the process which made me feel comfortable as I knew I was in good hands. Karen and her team always gave me as much notice as possible when they were arranging private inspections which gave me time to prepare. I never felt pressured during the sale of my home and felt Karen was very honest and open throughout the entire process. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Karen and her team to anyone looking for great service.

We met Karen years ago and trusted her to sell our home. In the past we had a failed auction campaign with two other agents and were reluctant to use this method again. We took Karen’s advice and sold our home via auction. Karen and her team were more like family than agents throughout the whole process and they kept us informed on any progress with our property. They got as many people through our home as possible and arranged a number of private inspections. They always called and let us know how the open home and private inspections went. On auction night our home was passed in however Karen worked until 10:30pm on the night to ensure we sold our property under auction conditions. We found Karen and her team to be very friendly, professional and always contactable throughout the whole process which helped keep us calm during what is a stressful time.

Albert & Gloria Townsend - 102 Eastern Road, Tumbi Umbi

We decided to use Karen as our agent as she has a reputation for getting great results. We had been on the market three times previously with other agents and did not sell. Karen kept us up to date with what was happening in the market but never pressured us about our price. Karen and her teams communication was excellent throughout. They contacted us prior to and after inspections and never left us wondering as to what was going on with our property. We are happy with the result Karen was able to achieve and would highly recommend her.

Mark and Debbie Tullipan - 19 Swadling Street, Long Jetty

Having just sold our home through Ray White Bateau Bay; we cannot sing their praises high enough. From prior to signing an agreement, with support and advice, through to the final sale at auction; Karen and Tony were professional in every manner yet kind, supportive and understanding of our unique situation. We would not hesitate to use their services again in the future or recommend them to others. Thank you Karen, Tony and the whole Ray White Bateau Bay Team.

John and Melissa McSkimming - 61 Lakin Street, Bateau Bay

Very effective and strong communication

Noel - 4/1 Hobbs Close, Bateau Bay

We engaged Karen Wardle to sell our property as we trusted her from our first meeting and she has a great reputation for getting results. We initially tried to sell our property using the auction method however we thought the property was worth more than was offered at auction and decided to pass the property in. Karen never pressured us to sell at auction and supported our view on price. We kept the property listed with Karen and sold it two weeks later $55,000 over the price we were offered at auction. Karen sold our property for a street record which we are grateful for. Karen and her team were committed to achieving the best possible price and maintained her high standards of professionalism throughout the campaign. We would highly recommend Karen and her team to anyone who wants the best possible price and service.

Shaune and Tammy Corrigan - 68 Lakin Street, Bateau Bay

‘It is with great pleasure that I write this reference as but a small thank you for your fantastic effort in selling my home. You have completely exceeded all of my expectations. I needed to sell ASAP!!! And that is exactly what you did. You were courteous, answered all my “dumb” questions and made me feel that I was your only customer. The price you achieved was above the market, I am sure of that and it has now allowed me to have enough left over to help me start again. Thank you so much. I mean that sincerely. You personally saved my bacon and for that I am eternally grateful’.

Peter

‘I had met Karen Wardle previously and I was very impressed with her. I immediately contacted her when I decided to sell. I would find it difficult to find an improvement because of Karen's Professionalism. Karen was most professional in her manner all through the sale of my property which gave me confidence that a good result would be achieved. Karen's efforts left no stone unturned which resulted in a great sale’.

Thelma Cummings

‘Karen Wardle was very professional and personable at all time. We always looked forward to meeting up with Karen every week, as she was always very informative and friendly’.

Shirley Langley & Adele Russell

‘It‘s quite a daunting process buying a home, unless you have someone as professional and at the same time personal as Karen Wardle in your corner. There is no hesitation to follow up all our concerns and she informed us at every stage. Never an “I don’t know” was said, that wasn’t followed up by “I’ll find out and get back to you”. Karen took the time to listen and understand what we are seeking’, ‘The level of service, effort and understanding of the area we received from Karen has surpassed any other agent we have dealt. As Buyers she exceeded all of our expectations and provided us with a service that other agents didn’t come close to. Therefore we would recommend her highly to anybody that is considering selling their property or even purchasing a property’.

Kevin & Heather Madgwick

‘Very pleased with the result and such a quick sale’.

Maralyn Coleman

‘My late mother’s home has recently been sold by Ray White at Bateau Bay. Over the sales campaign, the property was respectfully treated as if it were a palace, and Karen Wardle felt like part of our family. Who would have thought that selling a house could be such a pleasurable experience!’.

Stephen Moon

‘I couldn't have asked for anyone more professional, dedicated, honest and sincere than Karen is. It was an absolute pleasure to have her manage the sale of my home and I will certainly be recommending her to all my family and friends. Karen did an outstanding job with my sale and I appreciated the truly wonderful effort you put in. I couldn't have asked for anyone more professional, dedicated, honest and sincere. With heartfelt thanks’.

June Baker

After speaking with a few agents in the local area, I had decided that the one point of difference was trust and this was something Karen from Ray White Bateau instilled in me from the outset. I was always up to date with potential buyers and market movements. Karen, was genuinely interested in my personal needs and there was never a moment when she did not make herself available. With her personal touch, Karen made the experience relaxed and at times a little fun. I would not hesitate to recommend Karen to any potential buyers or sellers’.

Zac Jones

‘Karen Wardle is honest and I believed her no nonsense approach, there were no lies. She kept me up to date at all times’.

Paul Beradi

‘Karen, I am absolutely ecstatic! You exceeded my expectations in every way. I would highly recommend you to anyone who is thinking about selling. Karen was always available to answer any questions and guide us through the process. Karen’s friendly, calm manner, greatly reduced the anxiety associated with selling our family home and we would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is considering selling their property’.

Eizabeth Oken

‘Karen was always open to our requirements in selling the house and showcasing it. While suggesting what would work and what wouldn't she did not enforce her ideas onto us. She was also very patient in waiting for us to be ready (well over a year I think!) to put the house on the market. Overall my wife and I believe every agent should take a leaf out of her real estate expertise and how to put Vendors at ease when parting with their home’.

Chris

‘Karen pointed out at our first meeting a couple of factors that would make the property saleable. This has now proved to be correct. Her estimation of the sale price was right on the mark and her sale strategy was excellent’.

Corrine & David Brandon

‘Karen worked tirelessly to sell our home. She followed up every potential buyer after each open home and gave us detailed feedback on every single one. She was always available to talk things through and very pleasant and easy to deal with,. Nothing was a bother and no question was too silly to ask!! We would highly recommend Karen to anyone thinking of selling their home’.

Ian & Katrine Hewitt

‘We were very impressed with Karen's commitment to keeping us informed of the progress of the sale from start to finish. Even after contracts were signed she kept in contact with us and was so approachable. She made the whole process much easier’.

Kathryn Schubert & Billy Felton

‘Karen was extremely helpful with the purchase of our property. She is approachable and immediately engaged with us from the first moment we made contact with her. Her professional and friendly nature and her prompt attention to questions and actions ensured the purchase process went smoothly and stress free for us. We found her to be reliable and honest which helped make this purchase a pleasant experience for us. We highly recommend her, she is certainly a top notch agent’.

Deb Chinner & Corinna Esplin-Peters

‘I had a relationship for over a year with Karen following my mother’s death. She was really understanding at where my dad was in his journey without mum and offered information without pressure during this time. When he was ready she came to see the house (one of 3 estate agents that dad chose) and offered her considered opinion. Dad was impressed and contracted her to sell the house. After the first open home (Saturday) there was definite interest with over 39 sets of people through the house. She recommended first and final offers to be presented on the Monday. We met on the Tuesday and the house was sold at $38,0000 over the asking price allowing dad to purchase a villa in a retirement village down in Sydney - one that would take mum's cat!!!! I would recommend Karen to anybody who wanted somebody that really knew the Central Coast market and wanted considered opinions that weren't based on her commission but rather on the client's objectives. Obviously her commission was important but didn't seem to be the centre of discussions’.

Jenny Pitman

‘I would highly recommend Karen Wardle to anybody who is selling their house, as she did a wonderful job at selling mine through a difficult time. A very thoughtful and caring lady’.

Alan Barnett

‘Karen was professional and detailed , I like that’.

Roy Neill

‘Karen was honest and very friendly and kept in contact with me through the whole process’.

Sue Bilton

‘After observing Karen's professionalism in selling a family member's home, and reviewing other local agents, we decided to go with Karen for the sale of our unit. What a great decision! Karen was right on the money when it came to market values, and she was proactive from the very start in keeping us informed of each step in the sales process. Her excellent negotiating skills came to the fore as she had identified several genuine buyers and ran a successful open home. We were thrilled with the prompt sale and the way Karen went above and beyond to see the sale finalised. Karen's assistant Robina was also exceptional throughout the process. Together they are a powerful team and we will certainly be seeking their professional guidance again in the future’.

Darryl and Joanne Darke

‘Karen is always polite, passionate about her work, well informed with extensive local knowledge of the market’.

Michael Grace

‘Karen was very honest, likeable, diligent in following up prospects and keeping the seller informed. She had a very good understanding of the marketing process’.

Adrian Tall

‘I'm so glad we chose to get Karen to sell our property :) she was amazing and so professional and sold our property in 4 days and got us a lot more than what we were expecting for our property which was amazing. I'm so thankful for what she has done for us and our family! Thank you very much Karen :)’.

Stephanie Edwards

‘Karen was conscientious, punctual, affable and hard working’.

Rod Maclean

‘I engaged Karen to sell my villa as I have known her for a number of years and I know she is extremely professional and has a great reputation throughout the community. Karen ran a great campaign for my property which resulted in a price substantially above the asking price. My villa sold on the first day Karen took people through as Karen targeted her database for people who were in a position to buy, which resulted in five written offers and a sale on the first day. It’s a credit to Karen’s negotiating skills to achieve the price she did. From the time I listed and through the short period my villa was on the market I found Karen to have excellent market knowledge and her constant communication with every step of the process allowed me to relax during what I expect to be a stressful process. Karen has a great team supporting her and I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants superior service and result.’

Caterina Salerno

‘Karen’s professionalism and diligence was exemplary in every respect. The marketing campaign formulated by you personally was very effective in achieving sale price over and above our expectations in the current market. During the course of our business relationship we have found your knowledge and “feel” for the market was spot on. We will certainly recommend Ray White Bateau Bay and Karen Wardle in particular to any of our associates should they be in need of your services’.

Frank Pegoraro

In my opinion Karen Wardle handled all aspects of the sale of my mother’s home (an emotional time) in a very professional and friendly manner. A sale price was achieved, which I consider, was above my expectation. All-in-all a very smooth process and I would recommend Karen to prospective sellers.

Thanks Karen for all your work in getting the house to sale - It was a pleasure to deal with you and we were all pleased with the way you handled the case. Our mother was happy with the outcome and we hope the new owners will be pleased with their investment. Thanks once again.

P Wilkins

The property was purchased in 2012 and Karen from Ray White Bateau Bay was the agent we purchased the property through. Therefore I wanted Karen to sell the property for me as she is professional in her approach and I knew that I would obtain a good sale with her. Professionalism was shown throughout the entire selling process. We received friendly service with minimal stress. Thank you Karen for selling the property at a good price and very quickly also.

The price achieved was above the asking price and exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much Karen for all of your help! You have been fantastic and well exceeded our expectations.

Kale & Ashlee Garling

Thank you so much Karen for assisting us with the purchase of our new home. In such a competitive market, it was a tense and pressured exercise but you were wonderful to deal with throughout the experience and were very clear and straightforward which we greatly appreciated. We knew exactly how the sale was being handled and you were open and transparent with us, while also working for the best results for your Vendors. Your follow up after the exchange of contracts continued to be prompt and helpful, as we started to think about our plans for our new home. You showed great care and attentiveness to both your buyers and sellers, and we have genuinely enjoyed working with you.

Mary-Jayne

Thank you Karen for all that you have done in selling my home. I am so thankful that at last I am finally moved and settled in my new home. You did a great job, and always kept me informed of what was happening. I will recommend your services to anyone I know who wants to sell in the area. Thank you Karen so much.

What we liked most about the service was friendliness, strive to get the best price, hard work to get the best sale, and Karen Wardle communicated exceptionally well after every open home... We would recommend Ray White Bateau Bay due to the professionalism and hard work demonstrated by my consultant.

Jim & Shirley Bailey

Thank you so much for your help and patience when I was looking to purchase recently in Anzac Road. You were so genuine, understanding and never made me feel like I was a nuisance in any way, even when I rang to tell you I had chosen another property. Ray White is very fortunate to have you as an employee. I would not hesitate to call you if ever I were to buy or sell again and would certainly recommend you to anyone looking at real estate. Thanks too for the beautiful cold water when my friend and I came staggering into your office on that very, very hot day. I wish you well in your profession.

Thelma Cummings

We would like to thank you for all the helpful information you gave us during your visit last Thursday afternoon. Your explanation re marketing of our property and the costs involved answered a lot of our questions. We feel more confident now in going forward with the sale of our property in the not too distant future. We also appreciated all the time and effort you put in prior to this visit by supplying us with sales information for similar properties, both in the surrounding area and also for our proposed purchasing areas. This will help us over the next couple of months as we investigate properties in our chosen locations armed with up-to-date pricing and availability. It was a pleasure to meet such a knowledgeable, friendly and honest person such as yourself. We feel that once we are ready to sell our property we would have every confidence in you achieving a prompt and profitable sale for us. So we are looking forward to meeting you again, Karen, when we are ready to go to market.

Barry & Kay

It is with great pleasure that I write this reference as but a small thank you for your fantastic effort in selling my home. You have completely exceeded all of my expectations. I said to you, 'I need to sell ASAP!' and that is exactly what you did. You were courteous, answered all my dumb questions, and made me feel that I was your only customer. The price you achieved was above the market, I am sure of that, and has now allowed me to have enough left over to help me start again. If anyone is ever thinking of selling their home, and they don't use you, they need their heads read. I had four agents out to talk to me, all said that they were the best and this and that, but you actually didn't - You just said what you were going to do, why and how, and that is exactly what you did, plus more. Thank you so much. I mean that sincerely. You personally saved my bacon and for that I am eternally grateful.

Mr O'Donnell

We have bought and sold through Karen at Ray White Bateau Bay and could not have asked for a better outcome or experience. Moving house can be a stressful and challenging time but thanks to Karen our experience was the opposite. We were always informed and kept up to date and genuinely believed that Karen shared the same goals as us. The week after Karen sold our house I was asked at a local sporting game who our real estate agent was, when I answered Karen Wardle the response I received was, 'I knew it, she is the best I've come across'. This is exactly the way we feel!

Karen is very polite and well mannered and was always there for you no matter what time of the day it was...\ Karen communication skills are well above anyone I have spoken to in the real estate business.\ Karen puts in all the hard work after the first conversation on the phone about sell a house...
