What our customers say

See all

We didn’t choose the agency - we chose Matt and Pauline Karatau because we knew they would do an excellent job! Was an incredibly smoothe process Where to begin - we were delighted with the way Matt handled the full process of our sale. He was efficient, professional, approachable and just the nicest person to deal with. All these comments also apply to Pauline Karatau. Between the two of them we couldn’t wish for a more experienced and professional pair! The office staff who supported Matt and Pauline did a great job.

Richard Kew, New Farm

Matthew was aware of my intention to place my property on the market. He used his real estate connections and market knowledge to match my sales requirement with an appropriate buyer at an acceptable price. This enabled the property to essentially be sold off-market (no need for advertising / open house / showings etc.) which was a value enhancement. He was especially helpful and communicative during the sales process, going above and beyond what was contractually necessary. I would highly recommend Matthew to other sellers in the New Farm / Teneriffe area.

Matt and Pauline were both excellent to deal with throughout the purchase of my property. Matt was always available to assist and provide any information I requested. Thanks to Matt Karatau for making the purchase of my property an extremely pleasant experience :)

Pauline and Matt were outstanding from our first meeting.

Michael Moore, Newstead.

Dear Pauline, I'm compelled to formally compliment Matt. Whilst you were away Matt was truly outstanding. His compassion and caring was above reproach. If there was anything that we needed to clarify or advice us on he was always there. Even after working hours he went the extra mile with professionalism and great enthusiasm. My Husband contracted double pneumonia and Matt constantly enquired as to the well-being and even offered to help on many occasions. With his charming personality and attention to detail he is an absolute superstar and a total asset to your company. As you know I have had a difficult time with my own health but the interaction with your son always lifted our spirits. From the very start it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you and Matt.

Mike and Sharon, Newstead

Hi Matthew, I would like to sincerely thank you in helping us to achieve to buy our unit at Mariner’s Reach. As you know we had been looking for a few years and when the right unit came on the market you kindly showed us round at the earliest opportunity. This put us in a great position to place an early bid. Your knowledge of the complex is unsurpassed and you were well place to recognise that our offer was true to market value. You were most helpful and kept us informed at crucial times in the process and we are particularly happy with how well the negotiations went. You are a pleasure to work with and when it is time to upgrade we will first come and talk to you. Thanks a million.
