BIOGRAPHY

Eight years later and Karl’s passion is stronger than ever but his game has changed. Now a father of two: Naomi(aka the Dragon) who is 2 going on 12, and his son Arie (aka the Ninja) have put things in perspective. With a wise old realtor once telling Karl “I hope you become a better father than realtor,” Karl considers those words on the regular and is sure he won’t forget them (well, pretty sure). Karl is proud to be on the Board of Directors for

KARL VANDERKUIP

K

arl made his entry into the Niagara Real Estate

market in 2004 and absolutely loves what he does. Thing is, he was never supposed to be a real estate guy, or at least never thought he was. He was a drifter by nature and while exploring Nicaragua he developed mono. From there, he was Fed-EXed home to sleep for months. In between naps he found the love of his life and now wife, Pauline. Who, he knew she was out of his league and quickly buckled down to establish an education at Brock University while obtaining his real estate license on the side. A growing passion for architecture, the next great cup of coffee and the drive of a honey badger made it clear that this is where he belonged. These intangibles have solidified him as an industry leader.

Community Care and The St. Catharines Club. Along with an active presence in church and volunteering at many community events. Karl loves Niagara and is involved with Community Tours at a regional level. All things history related or ‘latest and greatest’ is what makes Karl tick… the drive to know what is happening can be seen in his eclectic app collection, presence at City Hall, who’s on first, or rumours of the latest addition to the Apple family. Warm and generous and always quick to a joke, Karl ensures that his clients feel valued and appreciated throughout the buying and selling process. But don’t mistake Karl’s kindness for any brand of weakness… this could not be further from the truth. Think of him as a shark in a dolphin costume when it comes to closing the deal.

STAGING

H

ome staging is the act of preparing a private

residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers, thereby selling a property more swiftly and for more money. Staging techniques focus on improving a property’s appeal by transforming it into a welcoming, attractive product that anyone might want.

Karl believes this is so important that he will cover the cost of the in home consolation with a Professional Interior Decorator/Stager. Here are a few reasons why Karl’s homes are staged:

• Look better than others on the market. Competition is stiff. Buyers have high expectations. Leaving your house in “As-Is” condition will help sell the competition.

• You Will Make More Money. The average staging investment can result in a return of 8-10% greater.

• Faster Sale. Staging a home helps it to sell faster… delivering you the best price. Homes average 6% lower in sales price than those sold within the first 4 weeks. Once your home is ready to be showcased and exposed we’ll book a photo and video shoot!
