Karen Dorman

Property Consultant

From studio apartments to prestige waterfront homes worth millions of dollars; this popular, fun, multi award-winning sales professional has been selling them all since 2000, with a focus on beachside and western suburbs.

A forever Glenelg resident, Karen loves everything about coastal living and the people who choose to live here.  Nothing beats the village atmosphere… starting the day with a stroll on the beach when all the locals are out early… catching the tram into town… eating out in trendy cafes… popping to the shops and the airport.  Everything is so convenient, just ask Karen!

Karen’s love and knowledge of all things coastal is matched only by her passion for people. She cares deeply about her clients, making them feel comfortable, keeping them informed, and always with their best interests at heart.

“I pride myself on giving straightforward, realistic and most importantly honest responses to all my clients to ensure all expectations are met.”

You too will love her upbeat positivity and knowing you can rely on her tenacity and ability to think outside the square and deliver win-win outcomes time after time.

“I like to think I bring a real energy to the role and will always go that one step further to ensure my clients are happy.”

No wonder vendors keep on coming back for more and are only too happy to refer Karen to family and friends as you will see from all her glowing testimonials.

Operating from Harris’ local office on Jetty Road, you can enjoy a much more hands-on service, with the practical advantage of having Karen nearby when you need her.  This is especially true at the pointy end of the business, when quick response times can make or break a deal.  And there’s the added bonus of being able to pop in for a chat anytime.

Karen Dorman, Jo Wilkin and the team were terrific! They offered practical and informed advice right from our first meeting. Everything was handled smoothly and efficiently so that in the end my property sold before it went to market. This even more remarkable in that my husband was overseas during the sale so we were working across two time zones. There was no question of rigid office hours – work went on, always with a smile, regardless of the time of day or night, to get the job done. Thank you Karen, Jo and all at Harris RE.

Katie Freeth

We appreciated Karen’s guidance and energy in selling our parent’s house at Glenelg North. The home held many memories having been in the family since the early 1960s and Karen’s local knowledge, advice and approach really helped. The sales strategy Karen recommended had the place sold quickly with a minimum of fuss. She mobilised her team to create excellent signage and advertising materials and consulted with us regularly. Karen’s follow through with prospective buyers and related financial matters was exemplary and helped achieve the sale for us. We are very grateful and wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Karen to others especially in the coastal suburbs around the Glenelg area.

The final result was extremely pleasing and has allowed us to move on with a positive mindset. We have no hesitation in recommending the Harris team and particularly you Karen to assist with any realestate needs.

I have known Karen Dorman all my life (that I can remember) and my mother has always been Karen’s (Heart) Aunt. I know Karen better than some of my own sisters and certainly have the upmost respect for Karen as a consummate professional, completely trustworthy, with a great integrity which also carries over in to our particularly special and cherished friendship.

It’s because of Karen we are extremely happy with the process and outcome achieved by Harris Real Estate, thank you.

I would like to thank you once again for selling my property in Glenelg East. I knew that you would be the right person for this, as you had been in ‘game’ for a number of years and lived and knew the area extremely well. You made the whole process from beginning to end easy – much easier than I thought. You have been a delight to deal with and your communication throughout the whole process was exemplary. Your knowledge, advice on strategy and marketing was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. The unconditional sale within two weeks was amazing. I have no hesitation in recommending you and your team to others in the future. Thanks once again for making this so easy for me.

Fiona Hinkley

We recently purchased our new home through Karen Dorman of Harris Real Estate Glenelg and were delighted with the whole process. Karen is a very professional real estate agent whilst also being friendly and very helpful. She was always available to answer questions (even after hours) and nothing was too much trouble even after settlement. Karen went that extra mile to help us out. We visited the office a few times and were always greeted with warm hospitality by the other people we met there. We feel that this reflects in a very positive way on Harris Real Estate generally and would be very happy to recommend this agency. Thank you Karen for all you have done.

Marilyn Reeve

To say Karen was a breath of fresh air in my house search is an understatement. She felt more like a friend helping me navigate my big decision than a salesperson. Thanks Karen – I love my new home!

Selling my property through Karen Dorman and her team especially James  was truly the best decision I’ve made. Their genuine and sincere approach to selling real estate was second to none. Friendly and professional at all times with a real sense of achieving the best outcome for me resulting in my property sellingwithin one week and achieving my full asking price. It doesn’t get much better than that when selling your property.  I can highly recommend Karen at Harris Real Estate.

From our first interview with Karen Dorman we knew she was the right real estate agent to sell our mums house. She runs a very knowledgeable and professional team that kept us regularly informed of how open houses and enquiries were going.  Nothing was ever a problem for Karen.  Would highly recommend Karen and her team.

Pleased to provide a testimonial for Harris RE.   They took on the sale of my property in the Seaford Rise area when their business is Glenelg based. I have to commend James Smith and Karen Dorman and the team for their fine efforts in achieving offers leading to a swift contract on my Seaford property whilst managing my new home purchase as well. I was very pleased with the result. Well done. Sharon Rodriquez
