About Karen Griffiths
Your Rural and Lifestyle Real Estate Specialist With a background in business and farming and having grown from lower order share-milking through to farm ownership, Karen knows her business – inside and out. “Farming is my passion and that has never changed” Having milked and operated a herd of 180 cows, before buying her first farm, and becoming AGITO certified in Finance and Production Management, injuries took Karen away from her dairy farming duties in 2010. Karen then found real estate and is thoroughly enjoying helping people achieve their next project – be that acquiring a new farm, expanding their current operations or retiring to a nice home by the sea. “It really is an awesome job, helping people realise their dreams and being able to give practical, down to earth advice. I’m really happy to be doing what I do”. Karen enjoys her grandchildren when not working and is often found watching her youngest grandchild perform at Highland dancing. She also enjoys quilting and fishing. If you’re considering buying or selling rural or lifestyle property and would like someone who has and can talk the talk & walk the walk, then give Karen a call. Karen is also adept at helping people find their next residential home too!
Happy Clients...
“Approachable, open, honest and straight forward…” I had definite requirements with what I wanted and didn’t want regarding the listing. Karen took one challenge which I had made and that was to have the property sold within six weeks. She had it sold in 15 days. I found Karen to be approachable, open, honest and straight forward. Very professional.

“The entire process has been less stressful than I ever imagined…” Karen has been handling our sale recently and, in our opinion, she has gone over, and well above, the service we expected. My husband and I had spent a few hours worrying if we would even use an agent, as we have had bad experiences with estate agents in the past. Karen bounced into our lives with her positive and honest attitude, asking what we anticipated from the transaction whilst being very upfront in what we could expect from the company and supporting us in every way possible, with no question unanswered or considered stupid. We (surprising to us) got a price we had not considered, and I found the regular weekly appointments very useful.
“We felt she was always working for us, with our best interests at heart…” We have recently worked with Karen Griffiths to sell our farm property in the mid-north. Despite trying to sell our property in a difficult market, Karen was always enthusiastic and proactive in finding potential buyers. She is very professional and maintained a great level of communication with regular emails, phone calls and weekly progress reports. Our successful sale was conducted well, with Karen’s support every step of the way. We would gladly recommend Karen to any seller or buyer. Her experience as a farmer stands her in good stead to market any rural property.

“Enthusiastic, determined and professional with a great sense of humour...” It is my pleasure to provide this testimonial for Karen following my recent dealings with her that lead to the successful sale of our lifestyle block on the outskirts of Whangarei. Karen struck me as being determined and professional and had the capacity to think creatively about selling our property.
“Valuable knowledge to help us market the property...” Karen recently sold our 20 acre lifestyle block for us. As we are living away from the area we relied on communication via email and phone. Karen kept us informed with weekly reports on recent developments. With her background in farming she had valuable knowledge to help us market the property. We found Karen to be very honest and reliable, friendly and very approachable. We would most definitely recommend Karen to anyone looking at buying or selling a rural property.

“The knowledge you provided us in the process was priceless…” We finally moved to our lifestyle property after years of looking. Time spent with you Karen, and the knowledge you provided us in the process was priceless – you truly are an expert in rural properties.
