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 was very helpful supportive and engaged, which drove the energy levels up through the whole process. I would love to work with her again and was very happy by the support she offered.

It was quick, efficient and great communication. Had some hiccups on the vendor side, but it was solved after. Karen was kind enough to push and keep in touch with the other side, ensuring that it will work out (which it did). Really happy with the team!

I had Karen as my Buyers Agent. She was excellent. Really good communication maintained throughout the process (even taking calls at odd hours where you wouldn't normally expect an answer), great research on areas/properties, good negotiation with the property agent and clarity of steps throughout the whole process. I ended up buying a really good property, which I would likely not have had access to otherwise had I gone down the route myself! Saves lots of time and that alone will justify the cost of doing business with Empower Wealth.

Empower Wealth's Buyers Agents made the whole process easy and relatively stress free, considering this can be a very stressful process. The team were very organised and got the whole process moving very quickly. They were able to clearly communicate what I needed to do along the way throughout the whole process. With choosing a property, I was provided a number of properties and I was able to go through them and work out what I preferred, which they listened to. For someone thinking about buying an investment property, I would definitely use a Buyers Agent and I would definitely recommend Empower Wealth.

Karen was so helpful throughout the entire process of purchasing our investment property. She was thorough with her explanations and professional opinions on how each property option would perform and was honest as well. Karen and Laura's communication throughout was amazing to the point that I managed to have my contract signed while on a cruise with minimal WiFi to communicate. They were both there for my partner and I 100% all the way through settlement and continuing after to set us up with our property manager. We couldn't be happier!
