Karen Kilford - Tall Poppy
Being concerned about the welfare of others has been my lifelong commitment and being involved in real estate allows me to do that as a continuation of my past career. From the time I was quite young I have been heavily involved in caring for elderly, making sure all their needs were met, communicating with families and managing change. It seemed natural to me that when I was offered the opportunity to come into real estate as early as 1993, I could and would transfer these important skills over to assist people to make decisions that are life changing.
I thoroughly enjoyed the responsibility of ensuring needs were met, so moving into real estate meant nothing changed. I ensure my clients are well taken care of, the process of selling and buying property is well managed and that the decisions they are making are not treated lightly. Communication is such an important element of my business that I make it a priority.
Since I first started in real estate in 1993 I have loved the interaction with my clients. I know that most of my ongoing business comes from repeat and referral business and that gives me a great sense of satisfaction. Katikati is home now and has been since 1996. My family is grown up and I have been blessed with two beautiful granddaughters. I enjoy the community and making a positive difference in people’s lives.
