Karen Spires
Strongly focussed on being at the top of her game, Karen has attained AREINZ (Licensee) status. She chose to align her real estate business with industry Leaders, Bayleys, seeing it as a partnership that allows her to thrive and one which adds value to her clients’ transactions. “Bayleys has a proven reputation founded on strong family values, astute business practice and most importantly, results. The leadership, resources, networks, alliances and professional services that are inherent with the Bayleys brand further enhances my real estate business,” says Karen. By her own admission, Karen runs a tight ship. She has a full-time personal assistant to handle the administrative tasks, freeing Karen up to do what she does best - seeking out property to sell, forming tight working relationships with her vendors, marketing property superbly, showing property to prospective buyers and negotiating a sale. Nothing is left to chance. Utilising the specific skills of a professional photographer, copywriter, floor-plan specialist, window cleaner, builder, painter, florist and furniture hire company, a Karen Spires-marketed home is a strategically-managed listing destined to attain the best price in the least amount of time. Much of Karen’s business now comes by way of personal referral or repeat dealings with those who have enjoyed doing real estate her way. Karen lives in Herne Bay with her partner John and their son Jack. Believing that with success comes responsibility, Karen generously supports the local bowling club, Plunket, Breast Cancer Research Trust and Hospice New Zealand. So what are Karen’s five secrets to success, for getting the best price for your home in today’s market? 1. Get as many prospective buyers through the property as possible. 2. Going under the hammer – it’s virtually a must to ensure you get the most from the market. 3. Always do everything you say you will do and follow up with all interested buyers. 4.

She combines experience and wide knowledge with good judgement. Her advice in preparing and marketing our property was accurate and efficient and, most importantly, she got results.
