We never had a chance to express our thanks for the wonderful work Karen Crockett undertook in marketing our property on Charntay Ave, Manukau. This property sold at auction in August this year. When looking for a salesperson, Karen took my call on a Sunday. We were coming to Auckland from Pauanui so needed to meet with her on the following Monday to discuss the proposed sale. The process she proposed was very helpful. We had a tenant who was due to leave. When the tenant left we needed to clean up the property, including lawn mowing and the changing of the locks. Her advice to stage the property, then the open homes that followed resulted in an excellent result at auction. Brett your advice during the auction, when to "put the house on the market" led to a result better than we expected. After auction, in the Covid Lockdown, Karen continued to look after us. We had a burglar alarm that went off, and she arranged the management of that situation. May we wish you the best for Christmas, we hope you have a good break. With sincere thanks .Megan & Kevin McCarthy
The salesperson involved in the marketing of the property was of the highest standard. All aspects were carefully explained and the whole process was stress-free. The end result was a quick sale reaching an excellent price.Norman Hosking
We bought our first home with Karen's help, five years ago. We knew very little about the market and Karen helped us understand the process. When we decided to put the house on the market, it was an easy choice to ask for her help again. Karen is thoroughly professional and very knowledgeable about people and properties in our area (Goodwood Heights). She gave us good advice on organising our energy, time and money so that we were spending wisely, on maintenance and advertising options that would hold value and appeal to buyers. Karen also provided timely feedback, including opinions from potential buyers. We are also very pleased with the final outcome - at 31% over CV. I would definitely recommend Karen to anybody wishing to buy or sell in the neighbourhood.Ying-Jong Shen
We enlisted Karen Crockett to sell our home in Goodwood Heights and she proved to us that perseverance pays off. Karen was very knowledgeable about the real estate market in the Goodwood Heights area having sold numerous homes there in recent times. She was always available to speak with and kept in contact with us throughout the sale and ensured that we understood the process. Karen was very professional and caring in her approach to us and the prospective buyers. She was very enthusiastic and committed to obtaining the outcome we desired. Competent, committed, caring and considerate are four words that describe Karen Crockett. We would recommend Karen to anyone wishing to sell their property.Christine and Wayne Bromley
I just wanted to email you this morning to say thank you for hosting the Everglade team at the Quiz Night last night. Once again, it was such a fun evening - and we all had an awesome time. Nothing like a chance to dress up and have a bit of a laugh - although some of us need to work on our spelling skills today.....!! In saying that, I cannot think of another reason I will ever have to know how to spell pumpernickel!
It really is an awesome chance to get know you all better as well, especially seeing as we are so grateful for all the support you give to our school and the students.
Thanks again to you and the Manukau Barfoot Team - and have a wonderful day.
When Karen Crockett came to our home to ask if we wanted to sell, I knew when the time came we'd ask Karen to sell our home.
Karen was a very caring person, always so happy and with so much knowledge.
Karen made every stage of selling our home so easy and nothing was too much trouble and Karen has become a very dear friend.
Karen sold our home with fantastic results.
Thank you so much Karen. We'd recommend you to anyone. You're the best in the business
We recently sold our cherished home with the fabulous help of Karen Crockett.
She is truly a top land agent and knows everything in this ever more regulated industry. Her marketing and advertising advice, her building trade knowledge and precise searching of the property file, the accommodating of our resident cat at open homes, weekly reporting and auction pre-briefing were just some of the areas she was so good at.
She has integrity and pride in her dedicated commitment to the job along with her personal presentation.
Thank you Karen. We highly recommend her.
Karen was confident, professional, approachable and we felt we had a business friend working for us.
Karen seemed fair and would listen to what we had to say before responding.
Karen is a very dedicated, knowledgeable and extremely helpful agent. She has bags of enthusiasm and is very professional. I would have no hesitation in using her services in the future.Shaun Walker
Karen is a very caring person. She made my Mum feel very comfortable which was my main concern as I live outside of Auckland. Karen knows the area very well as she sells a lot of properties in the area. Thanks again Karen.Chris McTaggart
We think Karen is an amazing real estate agent an an honest and caring person whom we like and respect very much. Karen made us feel at ease which was very important. She is a wonderful person and has been excellent in every way.Trev & Sharyn Dick
Karen Crockett provided an outstanding service when marketing our Mother's house in Manukau.
The advertising programme she recommended worked perfectly and provided the reach we needed to market such a property. In addition, she acquired an editorial segment in the New Zealand Herald's property section which proved invaluable to the sale of the property.
Karen also went the extra mile and provided Mum with assistance to dress her house to show the house at its best. This is something unique to Karen.
The price we got was far beyond our expectations (and perhaps Karen's even) and left my Mother feeling very positive about selling and moving to her new home.
Karen was very professional and caring all through the marketing and sale of Mum's property and we value her expertise.
We would highly recommend her.
Getting Karen as one of my agents from Barfoot & Thompson was the best stroke of luck I could have had in the sale of my house. She concerned herself for my welfare, far exceeding what she needed to do. She kept me informed on all issues and made a wonderful job of presenting my home.She gave so much of her time and energy, that the result was one that was highly successful due to the effort that she put in. Any vendor would be lucky to have Karen on board.May Kelly

"When we decided to sell our house at 29 Goodwood Heights via auction, we did a lot of research on the internet and Karen's name came up. We read the previous testimonials and the feedback was great. When we got in contact with her
we found her very approachable and professional and you could tell straight away Karen knew her stuff.
To be honest we weren't that keen on spending heaps of money on marketing as we had just spent a lot of money getting it up scratch to for the market, but as Karen is the experienced one in the area we followed her recommendations.
Karen's feedback and reporting throughout the sale campaign was great and on the day she delivered and came through with a closing sale that far exceeded our expectations."

"When our family decided it was time to sell our family home, we first agreed it would be with Barfoot & Thompson. Our second decision was who to represent us in the market place.
When browsing through the list of agents in our area, I was particularly drawn to Karen's profile. We requested an appraisal and from the first visit we knew for sure that this is exactly who we want to help us. Karen is in our a opinion a real estate superstar, her amazing enthusiasm and knowledge is second to none. Not to mention her honest and integral character was something we appreciated immensely. "I work for you and I have nothing to hide" a famous Karen quote. We listed and sold with Karen in the short span of three weeks, we are now in the process of buying a property through Karen.
So all said and done you want 5 star service Karen is definitely your women for the job. Thank you so much Karen for everything, we feel like you have become a part of family in the short time we have known you.
