Our sincere thank you to Karen for your professionalism and support you showed us in the recent sale of our home. We have watched and tracked your performance and success in selling real estate on the coast for many years so when it came to selling our home Karen was the standout choice. Your high standards & level of integrity together with your patience, honesty and dedication to achieving the best possible outcome are what sets you apart. You kept us informed and updated throughout every step of the way making it a stress free process, for that we are very grateful. Your results have been proven time and time again, for this reason we would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anyone looking to sell their home.

- Peter & Sandra, Buddina

Karen Jones is a classy lady that epitomises professionalism. She always had time to answer the questions I had about the Qld market (as I was based in Western Australia) and took time to discuss how things were progressing throughout the campaign. I loved that Karen was patient throughout the campaign and not always trying to lower the price for the quick sale. With strong negotiations during the sale process I was amazed that Karen managed to get the price up to an acceptable figure, a credit to her negotiation abilities and the persistence she showed.

- Jared, Parrearra

We interviewed 3 agents to list our house and even considered selling it ourselves for a few weeks, by far Karen stood out by genuinely believing in our property like us. She could see the same potential and had a vision the other agents didn't. Karen's strength is in negotiation and finding the right buyer who will also see the benefits in a property. We definitely didn't make it easy for Karen, with a lot of special conditions my wife and I had. This didn't deter Karen she was happy to mold into the agent we wanted (even if it didn't exist elsewhere). Her professionalism, communication and personality made us feel at ease. In the end we went under contract in a matter of weeks for a price of over 20k more than the top price the other agents were saying we could get.

- Jayden & Tara, Wurtulla

Being a Financial Planner I consider it important to review the return on my investment when selling an asset. When paying a real estate agent you want to be sure they have created value for you. I can say without hesitation that Karen has been able to secure the best possible price on both occasions. In the first instance Karen sold the property in the first week. My most recent property still only took 6 weeks to get a contract. I could not have been happier with the price achieved, service, time and effort that Karen put into selling my properties. Karen was always prepared and available to bring through prospective buyers and provide updates. She provided ideas on how best to present and market my property to achieve the best possible price. When selling what is usually your biggest assets you want to get the best advice and result. Karen will get this for you and I have no hesitation in recommending her services.

- Andrew, Minyama

It was a pleasure as usual to appoint Karen Jones from Next Property Group to sell our property located at 27 Neerim Dve. The property was sold at auction for $4m. Over several years Karen has been given the task to buy and sell properties on our behalf and I have found Karen to be professional, honest, and reliable. I have no hesitation in recommending Karen to anyone buying or selling real estate. I have great pleasure to say that I have a long standing relationship with Karen, and look forward to have Karen on board for future projects.

- Laz Dzufer

At all times Karen operated in an extremely efficient and professional manner. I was constantly updated on Open Day timing, potential buyers resulting from open days, and progress through the negotiating process. I hold Karen in high regard and would strongly recommend her services to anyone considering listing their property for sale.

- Simon, Wurtulla

Our sincere thanks to Karen and Next Property Group for their professional help in making the emotional sale of our old family home as easy as they could, all went smoothly and successfully thanks to Karen and her team.

- Jillian, Mooloolaba

We have dealt with Karen Jones both as a Purchaser and a Vendor. We have found Karen to be a highly professional Agent with in-depth knowledge of the Sunshine Coast residential property market. We would not hesitate to recommend Karen to anyone looking to sell or buy anywhere on the Coast.

- Grant, Alexandra Headlands

Being away from the Sunshine Coast meant that I left everything in the hands of Karen to organise and manage as I had complete confidence in her professionalism. I was not disappointed; Karen kept in touch and followed up with potential buyers, the solicitor and a handyman to keep the yard clean and presentable. I would recommend Karen to anyone seeking to sell property on the Sunshine Coast.
