It was a great pleasure to work with Karen and her team on the sale of our property. Highly recommend Karen's professional and friendly approach. Although our property wasn't sold at auction, Karen was still persistent finding us a buyer and the property was sold in 7 days. Great results, and really appreciate Karen's effort
I definitely recommend Karen to represent you in relation to any real estate matter, her communication was second to none and she always provided a good response to any question I had for her in return.
Karen is very nice and easy going. She has been very patient and provided accurate and useful information for us before and after the sales. She demonstrates professionalism when she's doing her job, besides, her ability to speak both Mandarin and English is definitely a plus.
Karen was a pleasure to work with during the marketing and sale of our villa unit. She quickly contacted us with feedback after each inspection and answered our email queries quickly. Her knowledge of the suburb was also helpful in achieving an excellent result.
Karen was excellent and professional. She was there to prompt when I needed her She was generous with inspection times. She kept me positive when I had given up hope Thank you Karen.
I have been very happy with the market campaign and sales strategy from the beginning. The communication, feedback and recommendations throughout have been spot on. That all culminated in my property selling for above expectations.
Following our sale of an investment property in Mont Albert we then asked Karen to help us with the sale of our home of 30 years in Surrey Hills. Her integrity and willingness to help in any way possible continued through the successful sale of our home as well. Karen is sincere, honest and very keen to be of assistance. She has a lovely manner which is hard to describe - she is gentle but very professional and extremely hard working. Her knowledge of the market, communication and willingness to help is very reassuring.
Karen sold our property in Mont Albert in March. Karen is a lady of integrity. She works exceedingly hard, is friendly but sincere and professional. She was prompt to deal with some post -sale settlement concerns we had including dealing internationally with our purchaser to help us. During our advertising campaign Karen watered our garden for us during a hot spell without us even asking her to do so! I felt very secure in her hands. It is a stressful time and she was very appropriate and caring at all times. She also appeared to work very well with her sales team - they were clearly respectful to each other. I would strongly recommend her and the whole Woodards team to others
I recently bought a property from Karen Chung. She was most helpful and friendly to deal with. She communicated efficiently and in a warm manner and was highly organised with documentation. She made the purchase of my first property seamless and a wonderful process.
Karen was very accommodating in scheduling 2 evening open for inspections for me as I requested. She kept me updated throughout the campaign particularly after each inspection with positive and honest feedback. Karen was very supportive and appropriately answered all questions from prospective buyers which was very reassuring for me. She also quickly attended to any concerns I had to the best of her abilities. Thank you Karen for your attention and support throughout the campaign!
From initial valuation through to affixing the Sold sign, I found Karen Chung to be nothing but professional. Karen gave a realistic property valuation and advice re reasonable property improvements prior to sale, and was always at the OFI as scheduled giving valuable and timely feedback to me on inspections and contracts. Our property advertising was well thought out and brought extremely high viewing and contacts. Auction day was terrible weather, but there was a strong crowd with multiple bidders, which in part is a testament to Karen's thorough preparation and follow through. The sale price exceeded our expectations, due to the multiple bidders and Karen's expertise in marketing the property to the right demographic. I would have no hesitation in recommending Karen Chung if you are thinking of placing a property for sale.
“Due to the professionalism that Woodards demonstrated in the management of my rental property, I approached them regarding the sale. The Woodards team exhibited a very high degree of professionalism and provided a very comprehensive and high quality service in every aspect of the sale. From representing the property to recommending a conveyancer and managing offers prior to auction. This was the first time I’d independently sold a property and therefore I needed to trust that the agent would guide me through the process and support me in what I needed to do and know to get a good outcome. From the first meeting with the Sales manager, I found the team and their industry connections to be experts in the field and committed to outstanding performance. Knowing this meant I could be confident that they would achieve an excellent outcome on the sale. The team worked hard during the month prior to the sale, while I myself was enjoying an overseas holiday! Due to their efforts, we achieved a very pleasing on the sale and the whole experience has been an extremely positive one. I have been very impressed by the service I received from Woodards and would have no hesitation at all in using them again in the sale, or rental of my property.”
Karen was very helpful, through the whole process! She was always there anytime of the day, for me to contact her regarding anything I needed, she is very friendly, and easy to communicate with and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to buy/rent a property !!
Happy to have Karen represent my interests. Sold prior to auction which was a benefit.
Karen was professional and had great market knowledge. The selling process was made very easy and quick. She keeps you informed every step of the way and achieved a great result on my property
Karen's role in managing the purchase of our property was second to none. She took the time to explain the process, managed both vendor and buyers expectations and achieved a successful outcome. Karen's personable approach to people is a rare soft skill which facilitates open communication. I have no hesitancy in recommending Karen to any potential buyer or vendor (particularly those new to the market, like us), she is a competent, approachable professional with unquestionable integrity.
Karen was a professional, positive and a very supportive agent. Her attention to detail and care was outstanding! Highly recommended.
Karen worked tirelessly helping us in getting our place ready for sale and is an excellent agent in marketing and in communicating with buyers. She has a strong professional work ethic and offer a really good selling and buying service. No matter is too insignificant and she addresses every detail and concern of vendors and buyers with meticulous care and competence. We highly recommend her service. Thanks very much Karen.
As a first home buyer Karen has made the process so much easier, she has been easy to contact, knowledgeable about the local market and was so friendly and welcoming the first time I viewed the place . She seemed to actually really care and be excited for me when I found out I got the place. She has made this whole journey slightly less stressful. Thank you Karen!
We are so glad that we chose Karen to sell our home. She is knowledgeable, dedicated and extremely hard working. She was able to negotiate a great price for our unit - we ended up selling before auction! Karen provided a very personalised service. She regularly communicated with us? and gave us tips and advice on how to achieve the best price for our home. We put our trust in Karen and have no hesitation in recommending her to others looking to either sell or buy a home.
Karen, I am glad to have this opportunity to write to express my heartfelt gratitude for your assistance with the purchase of my new property in Canterbury. Although I found it challenging to keep up with the auction, I was glad you were there to keep me up to date and able to bid effectively. I really felt in control. Your attention to the details, which kept everything flowing smoothly throughout the process. Even assisting with preparation of my existing property for rental. I can't thank you enough.
I had the delight of having Karen Chung represent my apartment for sale. The property was sold quickly and without having to be advertised due to Karen's ability to manage a great buyer database. This was perfect for my situation. Karen uses techniques for sale based on the requirements of the seller and the market rather than a blanket one size fits all approach. Karen achieved a great price with a perfect settlement in an unstable selling market. Karen is also very good to deal with and goes above and beyond to achieve a result for the seller, while also maintaining the respect of the buyer. Perfect combination. I would strongly encourage anyone to have Karen represent their property - it will certainly be in safe and professional hands. I won't ever go anywhere else.
Karen always kept us fully informed through out the full selling process. Her knowledge of the area seemed up to date with current trends of the Camberwell market.
Great agent and communicator. We found Karen very thorough, good communicator and we felt very comfortable when negotiating with her.
