I knew Karen from previous dealings and liked the combination of her determination, hard work and her local knowledge. I find Karen to be an extremely good communicator. She has built up an extensive network of contacts throughout Cambridge all of which were essential to making the sale of this property happen. I absolutely would use Karen again and I have already recommended her to many people.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Karen on the purchase of our first home. Given our busy travel schedules, we had very limited time to find a property during the summer holidays and needed a responsive real estate agent who could help us negotiate an offer and a contract in less than a week's time. Karen was extremely helpful and patiently discussed all our questions and worries as first time buyers. She was very detail oriented when addressing the various aspects of the offer and helped us find middle ground with the vendor where needed. We signed the sale and purchase agreement with the vendor on New Year's Day, 5 days from starting our search for a home! We would certainly recommend Karen to any home buyer whether they are first time buyer or veteran homeowners.

Karen was absolutely stellar. Super informative, professional and detailed reports about buyer interest and feedback. She sold the property at the upper range of her estimate, having been very careful not to over-promise. Karen also emphasised the importance of waiting for the right buyer who loved the property. If you are serious about selling your property, and finding the right buyer, you can't go wrong with Karen!

We recently sold our house through Karen Grootscholten of Bayleys Cambridge.
We first met Karen a couple of years ago at an open home in Cambridge when visiting from Auckland. Karen impressed us with her helpful nature and the follow ups she did over the next year or so as we prepared to move to a house we already owned in Cambridge. Despite deciding to do a new build Karen kept in contact and it was an easy choice to select her to market our Cambridge home when the time came to sell. The home had a unique layout and was always going to appeal to a set type of buyer. Karen’s patience in finding that buyer and getting the price we wanted absolutely underlined that we chose the right person to market our home for us. Karen is extremely hardworking and ably assisted by her sister Vicki. We felt very at ease throughout the whole process.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Karen to anyone who is considering selling and would definitely enlist Karen when we buy or sell again.

It has been my pleasure to work with Karen Grootscholten to market my most recent home. I have found her to be professional and smart and she crafts a deal as opposed to signing me up and making a sale.
Her preparation is exemplary and everyone wins which is always the best recipe. I find her completely honest, friendly, obliging and communicative. The whole team at Bayleys Cambridge have been great and I highly recommend Karen and the staff at Bayleys.

I really can’t express how happy my family are now that our soon to be home has gone unconditional and words don’t really explain how grateful we are to you and all the efforts you have made to make things run as smooth as possible, even on the past houses we have looked at when you threw on some jeans and crawled into a roof space to check if there was access you’re very awesome and such a pleasure to deal with, thanks Karen, my family rates you very highly and would recommend anyone to purchase their home through you, very professional and always willing to go that extra mile.

Working with Karen in the sale of our property was a complete pleasure, we felt completely at ease with her as our realtor throughout the whole process. She was prompt in all her communication, honest and objective in her professional opinions, and adaptive to our changing needs. She is also a warm, thoughtful and truly kind person, we quickly felt a bond with her. I’d recommend Karen without any reservations and would definitely work with her again in the future.
I have sold and bought many houses over the years and I can say hand on heart that Karen has been the most dedicated reliable agent I have ever had the pleasure dealing with. When she says she is going to do something it is done, when she says she is going to achieve something it is achieved. She has sold for us above market expectation twice in the last year. She has all the attributes you want in an agent, punctuality, courtesy, reliability and above all someone you can trust. A pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend her to you on your journey.

We recently sold our home through a very successful auction program that was run by Karen Grootscholten. We found Karen to be focused, attentive to our requirements and thoroughly professional throughout the process. Her honest straight up approach was just what we were after. Karen gave prompt feedback after open homes, followed up all potential purchasers and provided us with a very informative weekly marketing report. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Karen to friends and family, she was a pleasure to work with.
