Karen Aubrey

Sales & Leasing Specialist

Karen Aubrey joined our LJHooker Commercial team in 2013 and is responsible for all Sales & Leasing transactions within the West Gosford, Somersby and Peninsula market sectors.

Karen has been the most active agent in the Somersby region in recent years with

approximately 40 plus land sales alone being achieved. She has seen a vast growth in pricing in this area, saw the potential and worked hard to make the area expand.

Owners are now seeing massive growth in their Investment with very pleasing results and Karen believes this will continue to increase with the road and tunnel upgrades, including North Connex bringing Sydney businesses closer to the Central Coast due to its immediate location off the freeway and only approximately one hour travel time from Sydney or Newcastle.

Karen saw a great opportunity in this area, being so close to the M1 Motorway and land being offered in other areas of her expertise no longer becoming available. Recommendations to clients of Auction listings along with Private Treaty sales have given owners great results and buyers great opportunities.

The clients Karen works with are very respectful of her and the relationships are mutual.

Karen has resided on the Central Coast her entire life and began in her Real Estate career in 1999 where with her strong communication and negotiation skills, she dealt with all clientele on a personal level showing courtesy and professionalism at all times.

Karen has become very good friends with some of her clients and she is the only one some choose to deal with.

Karen also involves herself in her children’s local sporting community where she has also been praised for her efforts. With a background at a young age in Retail (customer service) and being Branch Manager for the Greater Bank and a good lending history, Karen has the knowledge and understanding to assist people purchasing their first, 2nd or 3rd Investment property or selling their asset.

Since entering the Commercial Real Estate sector Karen has become a member of LJHooker's Prestigious Captains Club in 2015, 2016, 2017 recognising the Elite Performers in the Industry for 3 years and this year qualified for the Multi Million Dollar chapter recognising the top 7% nationally in the LJHooker network.

With hard work and dedication, Karen goes from strength to strength and impresses new buyers, investors, developers along with landlords and tenants within the Commercial Real Estate Industry.

Karen Aubrey recently acted for Lorraine and I to sell a commercial property we owned in West Gosford. She advised us to sell the property by auction, which was not our original preferred method of sale. She was very diligent during the pre-sale process, and gave us very honest and accurate feedback re: the sale prospects, every step of the way. Ultimately, the property sold for a price, substantially above the reserve price. We were very impressed with Karen’s’ advice, acumen, and attention to detail, during the sale process. To prospective real estate sellers, we recommend Karen Aubrey’s services, very, very, highly.

A massive thanks To Karen and the team at L.J Hooker Commercial . Leasing our premises at West Gosford was such an easy process using L.J Hooker Commercial. This enabled me to concentrate on my own business without the added stress of having to advertise and find a suitable tenant myself. We had regular inspections at suitable times from potential tenants. Karen and the team found the absolute perfect tenant in very quick time. I can absolutely recommend using L J Hooker Commercial Central Coast for all Commercial needs. Great job guys , thanks again. Kind Regards Ryan Berry Gosford Branch Manager

I would like to thank Karen Aubrey for her help in selling my property in Kangoo road, Somersby. Karen was very professional in her approach to securing the sale and kept in constant touch. Her advice and expertise were exemplary. There is no doubt in my mind that Karen would be the first person I would call if I was selling again. Thank you Karen

Karen was very proactive and professional. Karen spent a great deal of time liaising with the myself and the landlord to ensure both parties had a fair and successful tenancy agreement. I was lucky to have found a great Landlord and Real Estate to work with which is a pleasant change from previous experiences! I believe Karen had genuine , unbiased interests for both parties, Landlord and Tenant.

Hi Karen, Just a quick note and thank you for the excellent service and positive outcome you achieved with my recent commercial property auction. Your attention to detail and keeping me up to date through the process was a real positive. Have a great day.


Hi Karen Thank you very much for all your assistance with a number of property matters over the past couple of years, especially the recent sale of our property at Barralong Road Erina. The fact that the property was an industrial site situated amongst residential properties made it an unusual marketing proposition and we very much appreciate your marketing proposal, professional attitude and prompt response in dealing with issues as they arose. No doubt your expertise in commercial real estate was a major factor in enabling us to secure a sale price in line with your initial market appraisal. Thank you again for your help, it has been a pleasure dealing with you and I would have no hesitation in recommending you and your agency for any future commercial property sales or purchases. Kind Regards,

Peter McPherson

I Cannot speak highly enough of Karen and her service in the process of finding my perfect commercial space to lease. Right form the start Karen went above and beyond to find multiple locations until we found the perfect fit. Karen helped me step by step throughout the whole process and my millions of questions. Karen maintained a fast response rate and her quality of service. Thank you for being so amazing Karen.

Hi Karen, Thank you for your sms congratulations on settlement yesterday, it was well received. It is a relief to finally sell the unit after being on the market so long. I want to thank you for your excellent work , patience and persistence in getting a sale . It has been a real pleasure dealing with you over these many months if not years and I will miss our regular contact which I enjoyed.

I would like to say that after several attempts at trying to sell that block of land, L J Hooker have finally clinched the deal. Special thanks to you Karen, you showed true professionalism as an agent, which at the end of the day, people appreciate.


I want to give a huge thanks and thumbs up to Karen Aubrey from LJHooker Commercial. We desperately needed a sale or two of units in a commercial complex we finished building three years ago. Despite us being willing to sell them at or below cost of build, they weren't moving. We weren't getting nibbles to speak of, let alone prospective buyers. Karen came on board and from the onset she worked to sell our units. When one strategy didn't work she employed a different one. She continually stayed in touch and worked with us in an effort to get something over the line, and did so despite the fact that the odds were seemingly not in our favour with little hope of sunshine at the end of the tunnel for either us or her. Through Karen's tenacity and care factor we got the sales we needed, and with funds from settlement coming through this last week we are now finally over the hump with this development (a long time coming and a doubtful outcome prior to Karen getting involved and coming up with prospects). Good on you Karen and thanks for saving our butts!
