"We had the pleasure of engaging Karin for the sale of our house in the middle of the 2020 Corona virus related disruptions. Throughout the sale process we found Karin extremely helpful and professional. She managed all the lockdown related challenges with ease. Her professional and engaging manner made the sales process a real pleasure and we would recommend her to anyone. Karin's extensive experience was very evident throughout the whole campaign and in the end we feel was instrumental in achieving a great result."Alex & Annaclaire Klette - Nihill Crescent
"Thank you Karin for your very professional attention in selling our home of 24 years. We found your vast experience so helpful in the way you handled each stage of the process towards our successful sale. We really enjoyed your personal touch and rapport with us. We cannot thank you enough.Claire & Mal Simpson - Marau Crescent
'We recently sold our apartment in Orakei and were fortunate enough to have Karin Cooper marketing it for us. It was not an easy sale as a number of issues arose during the campaign, but Karin's professionalism and integrity made the whole process so much less stressful than it could have been and we felt we were in very safe hands.
Karin's ability to secure a sale against the odds was nothing less than amazing and I cannot speak highly enough of what an absolute pleasure it was to work with her. Because of her vast experience in real estate in the Bays she is extremely knowledgeable about the area and all that is involved. Her dedication and focus on achieving a sale for us is something for which we will always be grateful."
'We approached Karin to sell our home based on her outstanding and deserved reputation. We immediately had confidence in Karin due to her experience in the local market and her calm, professional approach. The sale of our home was an incredibly easy process and we were very pleased with the outcome. She sold our house in less than four weeks in a slow market. We wouldn't hesitate to use her again in the future.'Melanie & Alex - St Heliers - September 2019

"We first made our acquaintance with Karin about 18 years ago when viewing an open home and several times since at Karin's open homes. We were always impressed with her knowledge and manner and said to ourselves when the time comes to sell our home we would certainly like Karin to be our agent. Having just sold our family home which we built 22 years ago, we could not have been more pleased with the manner with which Karin handled the successful auction. If we need to move again we would certainly use Karin with the utmost confidence"Rosalind and Anthony, St Heliers Oct 2018

We would highly recommend Karin and engage her again in the future without hesitation"Leigh & Tony Jayne 48D Tarawera Terrace - March 2018

Karin is a true professional and we would have no hesitation in recommending her for the sale of your property"John & Nikki McNamara 30 Washington Avenue - February 2018
"We chose to sell our house in Kohimarama in February 2018 with Karin Cooper as our agent. This was after advice from a family member and a friend, both who had bought and sold numerous houses with Karin as the agent. Karin was very informative of the marketing campaign, and everything that she said she would do she achieved, even getting us front page on the Property Press and NZ Herald. During the open home process she kept us informed and had a great eye on the finer details. Karin managed a difficult auction, and trying market conditions superbly and achieved a great sales result for us. We are also impressed with the auction process and procedures at Barfoot & Thompson's head office. We could not fault Karin at all stages of our sale and would highly recommend her to sell your home.Graeme & Karen Beggs 73 Melanesia Road - February 2018
"We found Karin a fantastic agent to deal with; she was very experienced, flexible, competent and friendly. Karin's knowledge of the area and market was a big asset. We were selling our family home of 40 plus years, so it was an emotional time. However, Karin was supportive and made the process stress free and seamless through each step; from marketing, to auction, and after the sale was completed. We would highly recommend Karin as a very knowledgeable and effective agent who was a pleasure to deal with"The Lowe family - December 2017
"Karin Cooper is a most diligent and experienced agent who I felt from the outset was working for us. I would not hesitate in using her again"Kelly Midwood - August 2017
"We have known Karin Cooper for about three years now, during which time she has successfully sold two of our homes, one of which we purchased off plans from her. What we like about Karin is her attention to detail and experience. Selling your home can be stressful at times and based on our relationship with Karin and her years of experience, we are able to turn the process over to her and trust she will do the best job possible for us. She is meticulous with ticking all the boxes and ensuring that we feel comfortable. She has always been committed to a long term relationship rather than just a one off transaction which we value."Claire & Matthew Barnes - July 2017
"We are thankful for the way Karin guided us through the daunting task of selling our home. Her extensive experience in the property market coupled with her knowledge of the building industry was invaluable. From preparation, through marketing, and finally negotiating a successful sale, she handled the task in a calm and professional manner. No problem was insurmountable and she was a pleasure to work with"Lois & Kevin McPherson - November 2016
"Karin Cooper sold our house at auction recently. Throughout our campaign Karin was the ultimate professional. She was always available for any queries we had. Karin had a good understanding of our needs, and was able to read potential buyers to give us accurate and honest feedback. We count ourselves lucky to have had Karin as our agent and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone else"David & Sarah Handley - October 2016
We'd like to thank you for acting on the marketing and sale of our house recently. We thought you were thoroughly professional and did a fantastic job for us from start to finish. We appreciated your advice and knowledge of the market, your regular feedback throughout, and you obtained a great price for us. We really appreciated that you acted to increase the value of the pre-auction offer we received. We particularly felt your great experience in the Bays market and as an agent really showed through. We suspect the difference an experienced and skilled agent who knows her market can make is often underestimated. We would not hesitate to list with you again.
"Recently we sold our home in Mission Bay and our agent was Karin Cooper. We were very pleased with the service we received from her - not least was getting us a very pleasing result. She was at all times thoroughly professional, reliable and helpful. She kept in touch with us during the process and was considerate and encouraging. Selling a much loved home is a stressful business! We would have no hesitation in recommending her to any other prospective vendors.Denise & Peter Bassett - May 2016
"We have worked with Karin as both buyers and sellers and found her to be very professional and pleasant to
deal with. We would have no hesitation in recommending her, in fact we already do!"
"If you are considering using Karin as your agent, then don't hesitate, she has integrity, intelligence and experience. Karin recently sold a property in St Heliers for us, and cannot recommend her highly enough.
From the moment she arrived for the appraisal, we felt we were in safe hands, and we absolutely were. Her performance was, quite simply, faultless, and because we were able to trust her completely, the campaign was remarkably relaxed for us as vendors. We particularly valued the savvy advice she gave us when we were faced with making decisions about pre-auction offers. Karin worked incredibly hard on selling our property.
It was a modest two bedroom unit, but you would never have known that from the energy she put into the campaign - it was as if she was selling an eight bedroom mansion. Ultimately, the price she achieved for us reflected her efforts: it was outstanding, and we are beyond thrilled."
"I purchased a property where Karin was the agent and appreciated her professional approach and her focus on her clients' interests. Based upon that positive experience I asked her to manage the sale of my present house. I found her strategy and services to be of the highest quality - a service that has achieved an outstanding result."Peter Cunningham - July 2015
"Karin's confidence and assured manner enabled us to go through the process of marketing and reaching a successful sale of our home without undue anxiety.

"As a semi-reluctant seller I have been heartened and reassured throughout the process due to the gracious, thoughtful and knowledgeable support and advice from Karin Cooper.

She has made it a comfortable and even humorous experience at times and I am very grateful to her."Kaye Barnett - April 2015

"My wife and I have been sincerely impressed by Karin and her team during the set up and sale of our home in Auckland last month. As we were overseas at the time, we left Karin in complete charge of the staging of our property and through to the auction. Her professionalism and thoroughness meant that we were completely stress free. She kept us fully informed of all that was happening with weekly reports of interest and phoning us regularly if questions needed answering. It was a great relief to feel she was really working for our interests. She really cared and was there for us to fully support us through the actual auction. Her hard work meant that we achieved a very satisfying result. A real professional. Thank you Karin"Max & Lucy Thompson 2/171 Riddell Road - April 2017
