About Karen

With a love of real estate and a passion for the Whanganui community, Karen Bukholt is excited to join the team at Bayleys Whanganui as a residential and lifestyle salesperson.

Like Bayleys, she comes from humble beginnings and has strong family values. Karen has lived in Whanganui most of her life and has enjoyed life in many of our beautiful suburbs and surrounding rural communities.  

Prior to real estate, Karen worked mostly in Financial and Business Management where she focused on the importance of clear and open communication, listening to, and understanding clients’ needs, and developing valuable leadership skills.

Karen prides herself on being very organised and having great attention to detail, two qualities that will help ensure you receive the commitment and consideration that you deserve on your real estate journey. She is committed to providing outstanding service to vendors and purchasers alike.

Along with her husband Knud, Karen will work with you to ensure she fully understands your needs and provide you with guidance and support to achieve your goals. If you are considering selling your property or would simply like to have a chat about your options, please don’t hesitate to give Karen a call.



'You're going to be a FABULOUS agent,

Because you are naturally trustworthy,

Because you will listen,

Because you're an excellent people person - you genuinely care,

You're well organised and pay attention to details,

You have a relaxed and easy going manner which puts people at ease.'

- Sandy McDougal


'I had the pleasure to work closely alongside Karen for over 10 years as her Chief Executive.

During this time, I observed many of Karens qualities. She is extremely well organized, a great communicator, remained calm under pressure and in pressure situations, an absolute team player and has a fantastic sense of humour!

Karen was always professional, competent, and empathetic whilst carrying out her duties. Her infectious laugh always raised the energy levels within the working environment and contributed hugely to our team culture. 

A very loyal, hardworking and trusted team member.'

- Danny Jonas


'If I had a dollar for every time Karen found the right path to the best results, I’d be a wealthy property magnate by now. Seriously though, Karen’s feet are on the ground, she’s someone that exudes trustworthiness and that’s because she is, from top to bottom. Working with Karen was fun, and productive. You know the adage ‘Don’t feel like you’re losing a daughter, think of it as gaining a son-in-law’? Well, I have lost a loved and respected work colleague, but guess what? I’ve gained a great real estate salesperson.'
