"From first meeting with Karl we were impressed with his manner and professionalism and were confident he was the right choice to sell our home. However it was at completion where we were truly pleased with chosing Karl. He achieved everything he promised and more, going the extra yard several times to ensure the sale went smoothly for all parties. Don't be put off by the Kiwi accent, he's a good bloke!"

"Thanks again Karl for getting me a new piece of life by relieving me of the old one. I realize that a recommendation needs to be in my own words so here it is. I do hope you have lots of sales in this new financial year and the satisfaction that comes with it all.
In late 2011 we first placed our house on the market with another agent and experienced only disappointment. Two weak offers came and we were encouraged to reduce our expectations.
After a break of 3 months we decided to list with Karl Howard of McGrath who had given us a clear and realistic appraisal which sat well with our goals for a sale. Karl was at all times prompt, courteous and efficient. Through the wide reach of McGrath's marketing we had strong and immediate interest and received 3 good offers within the first 2 weeks. Karl showed himself to be an excellent negotiator and secured a price that we were very happy to accept.
We would both recommend Karl for his professionalism and pleasant, easy manner. Thanks Karl!!"

"We first met Karl in June 2011 when we decided to sell our Balmain house. We found Karl to have a very positive, strong and determined personality which meant that he remained very claim and level headed all the way throughout the selling process.
Karl Howard is a very good communicator and a person that we believe has a very good handle on the local market.
His “can do” attitude throughout the entire campaign meant that the ultimate result of SOLD was achieved!!!
We found Karl to always avail himself to us at any time and the weekly feedback reports meant that we were kept in the loop at all times!
We have recommended Karl to a couple of neighbours who were selling in our street and to our delight his signboards have gone up... and also sold."

"We have worked with Karl for the past few months in order to sell our home in Leichhardt. We have found him to be very pleasant and helpful person to work with. He does everything possible in order to accommodate our needs. One of his best qualities is listening to exactly what we want and answering all of our questions.
Karl has an in depth knowledge of the local market confirming our confidence in the process from beginning to end. Karl’s open communication throughout the sales campaign ensured we were always updated with how everything was progressing. Karl’s attention to detail and service was above and beyond in our opinion which achieved a fantastic result for us.
I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs a kind, considerate, and professional realtor."

"I meet Karl in his capacity as a real estate agent when I was seeking to purchase a unit earlier this year. He was the agent for the vendor. I did not live in Sydney which made viewing difficult. Karl was extremely helpful - nothing was too much trouble even when arrangements had to be changed at short notice. He maintained cheerful, easy contact, without being harassing or intrusive. I Purchased the unit and am very pleased with it. I have no hesitation in recommending him"
