Karyn McTernan

Specialising in the marketing of residential and lifestyle properties in and around Waiuku and the Awhitu Peninsula, Karyn is dedicated to promoting the benefits of living in this area.

Spending holidays at Hudson’s Beach as a child and later completing her first year as a teacher at Awhitu Primary School, she loves the Waiuku area because of the natural beauty of the bush, beaches and the country lifestyle while still being within easy reach of Auckland city.

An on going love affair with houses attracted Karyn to real estate and fascinated with architectural styles and why they developed, she has researched the history of the New Zealand house for her own interest. DIY makeovers, garden design and computer games are also passions.

Currently living in a re-sited villa, Karyn has trialled many lifestyles; the self-sufficient lifestyle block, building a new home, and buying an established property. Always looking for a challenge she is committed to achieving the best result for you and to making your next move an enjoyable one.


Karyn is friendly and it was easy to make contact with her regarding any concerns. She kept us up to date with queries and informed us with any feedback from prospective buyers.

I found Karyn to be very approachable and professional. She listened to how I wished to market my property and I was very happy with the result and the quality of prospective buyers.
Communication was extremely good and if there were any issues they were dealt with quickly. I would recommend Karyn to anyone who wants the very best marketing of their property and who is realistic about selling. Karyn offers realistic and helpful market experience and will obtain a sale and multiple offers in as quick a time as practical. You know that she is working for you regardless of if she sells the property herself or if one of her associates completes the deal.

The best communication and advice I’ve had from a Real Estate agent ever! Karyn has been totally professional in all aspects of the selling process-she always followed up with viewing and communicated clearly throughout.
Viv Wise

Karyn had to negotiate with quite difficult purchasing clients and their relatives but she maintained a high level of professionalism which resulted in a sale for us.

"I recently had the pleasure of purchasing a property listed with Karyn. We were out of town buyers and ended up bidding via telephone at auction. Karyn advised us of the entire process involved and acted as our ‘middle-man’. I felt completely supported and reassured throughout the entire process, Karyn always answered all our countless emails and phone calls and genuinely shared in our passion of the property. I believe she was truly professional, committed and went above and beyond for us, and contact and manner made it a truly enjoyable experience. I cannot recommend Karyn highly enough, and have no hesitation in encouraging others to meet her."

Paul Atkinson

"As a first time home buyer I could not have hoped for a better agent to guide me through the process. You were always available, friendly and helpful and pleasure to deal with."
