" Professionalism & Dedication "

Dear Karen, I would like to thank you for your professionalism, dedication and hard work you showed in selling my investment property. As you were aware the building has defect issues currently in litigation, which made it difficult to sell. I previously had it on the market with another local agent for 2 years and decided to list my property with you. Once listed you had it sold within 4 weeks, which exceeded my expectation. I would have no hesitation recommending your services to any future Vendor/Purchaser/Landlord. All the very best and I hope to do further business with you in the near future.

" 10 out of 10 "

 We recently sold our first property and were lucky enough to have an agent come highly recommended. It was obvious after the first consultation why, and that Karen would be the perfect person to also guide us through selling. Karen was very professional and it was clear that she had extensive knowledge of the market and where we stood within it. She always made sure we understood the steps we were taking and was available through email and phone when we needed. Communication was 10/10. Being our first property we had a lot of questions and she consistently answered them with honesty and professionalism. She lifted a weight off our shoulders from day one and provided us with a lot of laughs and excitement. We are happy to say that we will be HIGHLY recommending Karen to our friends and family, and she will be the one we contact when we look to buy our next property. .

" Trouble Free Purchase "

Hi Karen, just a quick note to say thanks again to you and the FN team for the quick and easy, trouble free purchase, for 1/3 High St Manly. We are delighted with the purchase and look forward to continuing the relationship with yourself as the property manager. Eventually we will live in it ourselves as a ‘downsizer’. The thing we like about it is that it is in ‘original’ condition, with the rose ceilings, etc + the position is ideal.

" Putting the Wow back in Real Estate "

We wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your professionalism, energy and efficiency in successfully organising the sale of my late mothers unit in Cohen Street, Fairlight. You and your “team” significantly reduced the stress associated with getting the unit ready for the sale in such as short space of time and organising for it to be painted, re carpeted, cleaned and for the removal of last minute furniture. We are very grateful for all your efforts and can’t thank you enough for the great job you did. You’ve certainly put “wow” back into the real estate business!.

" First Home Buyers "

"We recently purchased our first home through Karen Joseph at First National Manly (Hooray!!)   Her support, professionalism and attention to detail made the experience - including the auction day - unexpectably easy.  She constantly provided us with feedback and immediately returned phone calls, we really felt like she cared about us. I am a successful business owner and deal with many difference types of people, rarely do I meet people of this calibre and level of professionalism.   I cannot speak highly enough of Karen, I would be delighted for any person to contact me personally should they wish for further reference.  Karen has my permission to give any person my contact details should they wish to do so."

" Unbeatable Culture & Professionalism "

"Karen, Thank you for spending time helping me understand the rental process, it's good to know the ins and outs. You make us feel important even though we are a very small client and one of many. You take the time, you are courteous and respectful when others take us for granted. It's more than just a job, it is obvious you are competent, but more importantly, you enjoy what you do and make it your business to keep innovating and improving. Some of that comes from overall enthusiasm of the team, and that's pretty important to us as well. The interesting part is that you believe it's just the way things should be done, that's an unbeatable culture. I look forward to working together."

" Premier Manly Real Estate Agent "

I recommend you as the ‘premier Manly estate agent’ whenever anyone asks and you are more than worthy of that title!!!  I know I have thanked you in person many times but I wanted to put pen to paper to formally say a huge thank you for the great service that you are providing in managing my Ocean Road property. The tenant match has always been excellent and your swift remediation of any property maintenance issues makes this a painless experience. As I’ve said before, I need you managing the rest of my life!!

" Real Estate Agent to the Stars "

Karen Joseph has been our real estate agent looking after our 2 rental properties for 5 years. 26c Kentwell Rd, Allambie and 1/62 Crown Road, Queenscliff. In both instances, she found us the perfect tenants and made sure our needs and concerns were met. We first said no pets and we have now had the same tenant with a dog for 5 years. She was right, pet owners stay longer. Nothing is ever too much trouble and when the need arises, any problems are fixed decisively and swiftly without any stress to us, as her clients. I have in the past, and will continue to do so in the future, recommending Karen to friends and colleagues. Karen is known as “The Agent to the Stars”. Please feel free to contact me if you require any further information.
