Karen Taylor embodies the new breed of modern real estate professional who provides substantive knowledge in finance and marketing while taking time to forge solid relationships with her clients. With over a decade in banking Karen was able to safely navigate buyers through the mortgage process. This, combined with two decades of marketing and sales experience, has given Karen the skills to effectively market your valued home and ensure you receive a premium price. Karen knows this first hand “I have been actively involved in buying and selling my own homes. Friends and family were always suggesting that I should enter the industry - I finally made the decision to commence with the study and once I started the training I haven’t looked back!”. Karen’s decision to choose Ray White was an easy one “ With a background in advertising and marketing it was imperative for me to select the right agency. Ray White is a household name, a family business and is locally owned and operated which are all attributes I value. The support and technology Ray White offers is next level - this is of great value to our clients in achieving that ‘needle in the haystack’ price for their property, whether it’s through an auction campaign or by private treaty ”. A proud local, Karen’s enthusiasm for the region is evident in her resolve that she would never consider living anywhere else. “ New Plymouth is the perfect place to live - It’s big enough to provide everything anyone could ever need, but small enough to be friendly and where no one is lost in a big pool - I love the community spirit of Taranaki ”.
