Karen has been in the finance industry for 20 years in various roles and worked for three main trading banks. I bring a wide range of knowledge on home & business lending. From purchasing an owner occupied property or investment property, to buying a commercial property, helping your children into their first home or simply wanting to making sure you are getting the deal you deserve from your existing Bank.

Karen makes mortgages easy by acting on your behalf to negotiate a deal, Karen prides herself in delivering excellent service, specific & relevant advice, and solutions from a panel of over 10 lenders. My service is 100% Free.

Rather than being time consuming and stressful, buying property should be exciting, so why spend all valuable time explaining your situation and trying to compare pricing yourself? Putting you the customer first is paramount.

When I'm not working you will find me in the summer at Meremere Dragstrip racing a 482 big block twin turbo chevy roadster. Currently the fastest and quickest female ever in NZ at 6.34ET & 221MPH and always hoping to go faster! I also love to go fishing and travel when time allows.

"You're a legend. Will be sure to recommend you."
