Karen Renouf

Licenced Real Estate Agent

Karen Renouf has just been named one of Australia’s leading agents in a national list of top-performing women in real estate. She is the only L J Hooker agent to make the list and one of only five agents from Queensland to position in REB’s Top 50 Women in Real Estate ranking for 2020. This is the second consecutive year that Karen has been recognised in this list. In 2019 she was the only agent from Queensland to be recognised as one of the top 50 agents and this year the ranking also identifies her as the 4th top listing agent in the country.

Over the past 12 years Karen Renouf has worked tirelessly for her clients selling over 100 properties a year. Her values-based approach and insistence that customers interests always come first underpins her success and sets her apart from other agents. Her customers appreciate her determination, professionalism and enthusiasm. Her impressive track record is due in part to her background in executive management and marketing directorships internationally.

As senior vice-president of marketing at an internationally renowned global retailer in England, Karen’s responsibilities also encompassed branding, sales, promotions, public relations and business development. In England, her sporting prowess during her teen years also helped position her for future business success, as the commitment to training and discipline was a staple of daily life when she swam for England and played hockey and squash at county level.

She has set a number of record sales for her clients over the past few months, working with more than 220 groups and selling a remarkable $64,000,000 worth of property in the last 12 months.

Karen has a natural flair for selling property – a talent recognised with a string of awards including ranking as LJ Hooker’s number one agent in QLD, Northern NSW & NT in 2019.

Karen was a principal at both the Professionals in Cleveland and at LJ Hooker, Alexandra Hills, for several years before the Professionals merged with LJ Hooker in Cleveland. The merger helped ensure the agency holds the dominant market share on the Bayside and beyond.

Local knowledge and experience is invaluable whenever you make a decision about your property. It’s what stands between a good deal and an extraordinary deal. Karen’s expertise and local knowledge make her the ideal person to talk to about what’s happening in today’s property market and what to expect in the future.

Karen sold me a house and I was so impressed with her and the team at LJHooker Cleveland, that I had them sell my house at Lota. They were genuinely the best, most understanding, helpful, knowledgeable, honest and supportive real estate agents I have met. All the team, with special mention to Sue and Ian, bent over backwards to help me during what is an extremely stressful period in anyone's life. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Karen and her team were absolutely great. We were kept up to date with the whole sale process and were consulted regularly as to our wishes. Our property was sold at the best possible price. All in all a very satisfying experience. We have since listed another property with Karen.

John Holmes & Sandra Shea

After having dealt with two local agents in the Redlands Shire for more than 6 months, and having very few buyers looking at property, Karen's team had success in just 3 weeks, and within a month an unconditional contract was in place. Peace of mind is what I experienced after many months of stress. More than happy to recommend Karen's team.

Gregory Bahlmann

We found Karen to be very efficient and knowledgeable with a very calm disposition. She made us feel comfortable and safe with her knowledge and background. She communicated and negotiated extremely well and was contactable at all times for whatever queries we had. We sold in 7 days. This was an extremely seamless sales experience.

Sue Watt

Karen executed the plan we discussed to sell our house very well. We had a sale within two weeks. Karen and her team member Mal Windebank did a great of communication and keep us informed all the way. We believe we got the best price for the sale considering the dynamics of the market in this area. Karen and the team were very supportive through the whole process. I would recommend Karen and Mal to sell your house.

Gary Vincett

We asked Karen to sell our house within the very tight timeframes provided by the vendor of our new property. Within 2 weeks we had 2 very good offers and the vendor ended up having to ask us for an extension! It was completely stress free. I would never use another real estate agent now.

Mark Badrick

Karen was very professional, she took all the stress out of selling our property and we highly recommend her when buying or selling.

Paul Kidd

Not only did she sell our home for the listed price, she was thorough in her knowledge on comparison properties, length of time on the market & overall market conditions. She was also able to provide insights into the type of property & location we were looking at buying into. We would highly recommend Karen to anyone & would look to utilise her services again in the future for other property sales.

Margaret-Ann

Karen was both professional and so personable in our home sale experience. Her manner is also calm and she is able with humour to make the sale of our home an almost painless journey!

Hazel & David Osborne

We can wholeheartedly recommend Karen and Mal from LJ Hooker Cleveland for selling your property. Working with them was a pleasure. Karen’s obvious expertise and experience was a delight, she immediately gave us the confidence that we had chosen the right agent. Mal worked tirelessly with numerous inspections and follow-ups, and keeping us informed the entire way. If we had known that selling our house was going to be this easy, we would have sold it a lot sooner!

Karen simply took the worry from my shoulders. The sale took almost 3 months to get the right price which Karen warned me may happen. I received regular updates on interest. The price was exactly what I wanted, it simply ran smoothly. I won't hesitate to recommend Karen & her team to anyone who needs an honest reliable real estate agent.

Karen Renouf and team, unlike many other real estate agents, take their professional responsibilities seriously. They have an acute understanding of prevailing market conditions and with their no-pretence attitude and genuine client empathy, you can trust them to work in your best interests to achieve the best sale outcome. As a retired real estate agent, I would not recommend any other agent in the bayside and adjoining area.

We found Karen to be very professional, always kept us well informed, certainly knew the suburb very well and we felt very confidant dealing with them. We highly recommend them to any future vendors or sellers.
