Meet Karen Joseph

Choosing a real estate agent to sell your home or manage your rental property shouldn’t be so challenging, but Karen Joseph can do both, making your decision much easier. You see Karen has an almost unique skill set in the real estate industry - expertise in sales, property management, auctioneering, and business management.

A lifetime resident of the Northern Beaches, Karen has set sales records on numerous occasions. Her knowledge of the local property market is considered exceptional, even though that’s nothing unusual within First National Manly's team. 

She has established a long-term reputation for property management excellence amongst landlords, and won industry recognition through her National Property Manager of the Year and Business Development Manager of the Year awards.

Nothing influences a customer’s experience like commitment

When you tie everything together, there could scarcely be another agent competing equally for your business.

As a Principal / Dirctor of First National Manly, Karen’s commitment to the success of every customer transaction shines through. Whether you’re a tenant, landlord, buyer or home seller, you’re guaranteed good advice, respectful consultation, hard work, and Karen’s trademark sense of humour as well.

As you might expect, Karen is a licensed agent. She also uses industry leading systems and technologies that bring cutting-edge marketing and communications to the sale of your property. With property management it’s the same approach; a dedication to processes that consistently deliver the lowest arrears, full legislative compliance, risk minimisation, all delivered with a humility that balances everybody’s interests.

Lifting standards industry-wide. 

Not satisfied simply with her own professional excellence, Karen regularly spends time helping others deliver a better experience for their customers. Her participation in First National Real Estate’s training academy is an essential part of this process and raises service standards nationally.

Accolades flow for the difference Karen has made to the professional lives of agents attending her training. That’s not surprising really. There’s a generosity of spirit she consistently brings to personal interactions.

Her vision for First National Real Estate Manly is aligned with the rest of the team’s. To set a leading performance standard over the long-term, the entire First National Manly team must be committed to your satisfaction through hard work, innovation and results. That’s not just First National Real Estate Manly's promise; it’s reality.

" 'Nothing is a problem' attitude "

Karen Joseph managed my rental property in Manly and has always been such a pleasure to deal with. Karen’s ‘nothing is a problem’ attitude and professionalism is a stand out. The tenant was excellent and Karen really did go above and beyond to find the right person for my property. There were no issues at all and it was a great experience- I would highly recommend Karen. Oh and on a side note- Karen has been helping me prepare my property to sell- she really can do anything. Thanks Karen.

" No nonsense and very straightforward. "

Karen and Giulia are awesome. Being a landlord can be stressful, but that's not been the case with Karen and Giulia. The service has been amazing and we've loved working with them. My wife and I rent out an investment property with Karen and Giulia in Manly and they've been a joy to deal with. No nonsense and very straightforward. I highly recommend them.

" What are you waiting for? "

I just purchased a property from Karen off market. the whole process was seamless and she negotiated access for the property to find a new tenant prior to settlement so i had a new tenant and income from day 1. Not only is Karen an #1 sales agent she is also a #1 property manager.she is a one stop shop! Why have your investment property managed with anyone but the business owner. Karen does everything herself start to finish and manages the property like her own. What are you waiting for? Call Karen today!

Karen Joseph has managed properties for me for 10+ years. The only people not having Karen manage their property, are those are yet to have found her.
