Karen has been outstanding in her support to us throughout the sale of our home. Being in our 70’s we needed someone we trusted to guide us and Karen delivered! She provided us with considered advice and worked tirelessly to achieve a sale above expectation. Karen guided us with professional confidence and absolute integrity – she goes above and beyond without hesitation. She is a consummate professional with unquestionable local knowledge, high standards and strong values. She has been a delight to deal with and we couldn’t be happier with the result. You can trust Karen implicitly with the sale of your home, we couldn’t recommend her more highly to other potential clients. Thank you Karen.

Karen and the Place team did a great job with procuring an off market purchase for us. Karen was professional, courteous and always available to take our calls and answer our questions. Well done Karen!

I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the appointment of Karen for the sale of residential property within her selling area. The sale of our Graceville property was not a straightforward process, however with Karen's consistent and complete commitment, we did secure a sale. Adding further complexity and concern for me was the fact I was working in an international location throughout the listing / sale process, though any initial concern associated with my absence proved completely unfounded, purely as a result of Karen's genuine and unwavering commitment to the sale process. A number of tradespeople were required to be organised throughout the listing period, including those associated with a full (& unexpected!) bathroom renovation; all were engaged by, and professionally managed by Karen.......certainly going well and truly above and beyond without any hesitation whatsoever. Having worked with a number of real estate agents previously, I can honestly say I have not encountered one as committed as Karen. Put simply, Karen proved to walk the talk, while her resilience and professionalism throughout the listing and negotiation process were outstanding. Again, I would have absolutely no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Karen, and would absolutely engage Karen for the sale of any future property I may have within her geographical area. Thanks Karen!

I first met Karen as the agent handling the sale of a friend’s house and subsequent assistance with the purchase of my friend’s unit. I was impressed by Karen’s professionalism, but I was more impressed by her friendly, personal approach during this process. Soon after, we were ready to sell an investment unit and Karen was our first choice. The fact that our unit was a little out of her local area made no difference and she was happy to take the brief. Karen presents as a smart, confident professional but again it is her friendly, personal approach that sets her apart from other real estate agents with whom I have worked. The advice that Karen offered in relation to pricing, presentation, photography and website advertising, (even though we were somewhat hesitant), proved to be exactly the right approach. Karen was attentive, always keeping us in the loop - it was as if we were her only clients. In a competitive and somewhat downward market for units, Karen managed to sell our unit within 7 days of listing at a price well above what was anticipated. Karen suggested the “offers over” pricing strategy (again we were hesitant) and we are absolutely certain it was her negotiating skills that ended with an excellent result. Karen ultimately saved us time and money and definitely provided a service above and beyond what might have been had we gone elsewhere. A true professional, with experience and knowledge, enhanced by a friendly personal approach.

From the moment we met Karen it was obvious that she was different from all the other agents we had encountered. Karen was reliable, informative, honest and extremely friendly. We were interstate buyers, so requested unusual hours in which to catch-up and view properties, Karen took this in her stride and accommodated us without hesitation. As Karen has a family herself, she understood how important it was for us to get the right place in which to raise our children and to ensure that all safety requirements were met. Karen has continued to stay in touch with us to ensure that we are settling into the area without complication, not because she is expected to but because she wants to and she cares. I will have no hesitation in recommending Karen Simons to anyone in the future. Thank you Karen, for making our family very happy and for your continued assistance.
