Karen Avallone

Buyers Agent

Karen started her foray into property investment at the age of 21 and in the years since she has accumulated quite a pool of knowledge as she renovated, flipped and developed a number of properties. Each investment has allowed her to experience different aspects of the buyer paradigm and has occurred during various life stages and market conditions.

Prior to becoming a buyer’s agent, Karen had a successful career in IT and on the business side of Management Consulting underpinned by qualifications in the field of IT and Management. But people and property are her first loves and she has not looked back since turning her passion into her career.

Karen attained a Master of Business (Property) graduating with Distinction, specialising in the areas of market and investment analysis, valuation and sustainability and soon after became a licensed Real Estate Agent. Stints on the “selling” side of the equation at some of Melbourne’s premium agencies gave her great insight into the processes of selling. But her passion for helping people had already identified a huge imbalance of power when it came to buyers making informed purchase decisions.

Hence her direction as a buyer’s agent was confirmed.

After many years working mostly in the inner east and bayside areas of Melbourne, Karen has found her niche at Empower Wealth. Karen enthusiastically shares her analysis of the extensive research available to Empower Wealth clients, and coupled with her extensive experience of buying property has helped many owner occupiers and investors make some of the biggest decisions of their lives to achieve their long term goals.

A tragic Saints supporter and foodie, in her spare time you will find Karen sampling the newest local café or restaurant or cooking up a paleo storm. She also is uber mum to her sporty daughter in between her own exercise sessions.

Karen has been amazing. She is extremely professional and her knowledge is brilliant. I can’t speak highly enough about her.

Karen and Laura from the team were both lovely to work with! I appreciate the communication updates and the help/education I got for addressing any of my concerns. I felt supported and they were always there to help in any way possible.

We were very happy with the services of Karen Avallone. She was spot on with her price estimates and we were confident to purchase our investment property without hesitation. She made the whole process simple for us. We really relied on her knowledge and expertise buying in an area we were unfamiliar with.

Everyone at the Empower Wealth team have been absolute superstars. Our dealings with the amazing Brendan initially, who gave us so much knowledge and built our confidence in our own property goals, to then dealing with John and the awesome Mortgage Broker team to secure our loans. We then had the most excellent Buyers Agent team headed by Karen and Laura who were the ultimate team in finding and securing our first investment property, and leading us in the right direction to finding a great property manager and managing team. And finally Liz and her expertise to give us the best insurance policies has truly given us a big insight in to how dedicated and knowledgeable Liz is at her job. And the support from Sid has been excellent. We could not have done this without your team and we truly appreciate each and every one that has given their time and knowledge to us.

Karen & Laura were really good to deal with, very thorough, very clear with their communication, would reply and return phone calls straight away and could clearly explain the reasons why things were done the way they were. From the conversations I had with Karen, I had a lot of confidence and trust in the decisions she was making.
