With a career spanning over twenty years in sales and administration, Karen McRae is a go-to real estate agent in Mid Canterbury. Since joining Hastings McLeod Real Estate Ashburton (Property Brokers) in 2002 she has built a loyal client base of repeat clients who appreciate her emphasis on family values, trust and integrity
Karen’s prompt and professional communication style ensures a stress-free experience. Naturally drawn to the buzz and excitement of real estate, Karen has a flair for making connections, and she enjoys that her role allows her to be part of a family’s personal journey
Karen knows Canterbury inside out. Having been raised on a farm near Hinds, she is rurally inclined, but she’s also lived the city life of Christchurch and has been settled back in Ashburton for the last 20 years. This allows her to relate to home buyers and sellers from all backgrounds. Karen especially revels in walking first home buyers carefully through the real estate process.
Karen is a mother of two sons, Cameron who is 21 and Ryan (Guppy), 19. Karen utilizes her flexible schedule to be an active volunteer of the Cancer Society by driving cancer patients to Christchurch for treatment and assisting with fundraising activities. A highlight is her co-ordination of well-known Cancer Society fundraiser – Relay for Life.
In her spare time, Karen enjoys walking, water skiing, tennis and catching up with friends. She also enjoys golf and is a member of the Ashburton Golf Club’s Promotions Committee.
“I would recommend Karen to anyone wishing to purchase a home. She really goes out of her way to meet your needs. She is honest, reliable, friendly and really puts your best interests first. Thanks to Karen, we have the house of our dreams.”
“Thank you for listening to our needs and requests which was important to us, and keeping in contact with us so we knew what was happening at all times during the sale of our home. We appreciated the outstanding service which was very professional. Karen, you’re Simply the Best!”

"Karen was thoroughly professional throughout the tender process arranging convenient open home times and subsequent separate inspections by interested parties. We were appreciative of the programme arranged for the sale of our property. She also impressed us with her caring and sensitive negotiation skills throughout the successful sale process."Julie and Garth Madden
In the last few years we have had the pleasure of using Karen McRae's services as as Real Estate Agent on numerous occasions. She has always made the transactions hassle free and always exceeded our expectations. Thank you Karen for all of your hard work and we would highly recommend you to anyone considering buying and selling property."

As I sit here surrounded by boxes and more boxes, I feel I need to thank Karen McRae for the ‘walls of pain’ stacked in the various areas of our recently sold home ready for packing away our treasures and relocating to our new home purchased also through Property Brokers.
Karen has been our preferred agent for our last two moves in the Ashburton district and we would recommend her as a top selling agent to anyone wanting an effective, highly communicative, professional, friendly agent who quite simply puts a great amount of effort into getting the best for her clients
My only wish would be for the real estate agent to also pack boxes as part of the process!!
