Helping people to find a house and make it into a home is what drives Lyn Penney.
As the mother of two children, Lyn understands the importance of matching a property to a family’s needs and the potential it has to enhance their lifestyle.
Having lived locally for more than ten years, Lyn is an advocate of the Counties district and uses this knowledge to inform and advise her clients.
Lyn started working from the Bayleys Pukekohe office, under the esteemed Bayleys Scholarship programme, and is a strong team player and works hard to build trusting and productive relationships with both her clients and colleagues.
With a background in banking, Lyn has developed superior customer service skills and a thorough knowledge of what it takes to finance a property purchase.
As a branch manager at the Pukekohe and Tuakau branches of ANZ Bank, Lyn enjoyed giving her clients the ability to purchase new homes. As a real estate professional Lyn now guides her clients along the rest of that journey to finding a home.
In her role as a branch manager, Lyn was responsible for opening a new branch and growing its customer base from the ground up. Her ability to build customer relationships and local networks is a skill that now proves invaluable to her vendors.
Authenticity is paramount to Lyn, as is maintaining an ethical and reliable approach to her work.
Lyn has a strong sense of community and is a passionate follower of sport, in particular rugby which she played while living in Wales. She is a member of both the junior and senior committees at Karaka Rugby Club and manages the Karaka Premier Rugby team alongside her husband who is the coach.
Her oldest child attends Auckland Grammar school while her youngest child attends Karaka School where she is involved with the PTA and regular fundraising activities.
Lyn looks forward to helping you with your next real estate transaction.
What a wild ride! ... From provisionally agreeing to buy a property & construct a new home in a new city - all on a spur-of-the-moment daytrip to see if we liked that area! ...
To that night deciding we needed to list our property without delay, we chose Bayleys, & then googled Pukekohe agents.
Lyn Penney’s photo radiated warmth & l said to my husband ‘l like the look of her’ (we decided if she didn’t pick up the phone or get back in an hour we would have to choose someone else, time being of the essence).
Not only did Lyn call us back within an hour after a msg first saying she would do so, she rearranged her time while out of area on holiday to visit us the same day spending quite a considerable time with us.
From that moment Lyn has been amazing - informative, very knowledgeable, super efficient, honest & friendly, along with a great sense of humour - great for keeping our apprehensions & nerves at the speed of it all at bay.
Any queries we had were answered by email or phone call without delay plus Lyn kept us in the loop consistently.
And when we requested that we’d like our advertising campaign to begin a week earlier than the 4 week marketing campaign was intended to start - Lyn didn’t hesitate in agreeing, although with all the associated work (photography - which was a fab job, drone included; blurbs & photo choices for the various online advertising media, the ‘at gate’ & end-of-road advertising signage plus the many emails back ‘n forth between Lyn & I) I’m sure we caused Lyn mild momentary panic, especially as the upcoming weekend was a long public holiday one!
Unbelievably Lyn was contacted by a potentional purchaser that weekend & again, she sacrified some of her break away with her family to return a day early to show the people through!
The resultant outcome was that she presented an unconditional offer to us the next evening ... & the rest is history - SOLD in under seven days after the auction was brought forward without even one Open Home
We can’t recommend Bayleys Pukekohe & Lyn highly enough!
Lyn, you have been beyond fabulous ... thankyou so much for everything - we are so happy that we chose you & we feel we have made a lovely friend along the way too

Thanks for a great campaign and ensuring my elderly parents enjoyed selling their pride and joy in a stress free,friendly and professional environment. They now move enthusiastically into the next stage of their lives. Thanks again, Scott & Lyn Penney!
I dealt with both Scott & Lyn and found them both great to deal with. I can't be bothered with the 'fluff' that some agents utter, instead I prefer the more direct approach - Scott quickly recognized this trait and worked brilliantly with me. We even managed a few laughs along the way. Lyn & Scott make a great team!
"Thank you so much for all your help throughout this entire process. You made it very easy to contact you about any questions or concerns we had and were very prompt about getting back to us! You made the experience of us buying our first home that much more enjoyable!!"

"Julie and myself wish to thank you for your professional and dedicated help in the sale of the property at 38 Carlton Road, Pukekohe. You achieved a great result for us and all from a chance meeting with Scott on the roadside. You turned that chance meeting into a very professional and friendly campaign. Once again, we thankyou for your advice your workmanship - and fantastic result."

"We have recently purchased our new home which was being marketed by Lyn and Scott. From the first phone call and enquiries we made all the way until the sale and purchase agreement was signed, Lyn and Scott were professional, honest and helpful. One of the stand out qualities I noticed and personally appreciated was when we were at the open homes - Lyn and Scott would allow us to view the property in our own time and didn't follow us around (like so many agents do), they let us be ourselves and answered our questions after we had been through. They were also very accommodating late on a Sunday afternoon when we made a pre-auction offer, doing all the relevant paper work with us and then following up (as they said they would) later that evening once they had presented the offer to the vendors.
We would be more than happy to work with Lyn and Scott again in the future."

"Thanks Team for all your hard work managing a challenging transaction. The result on the day is testament to your dedication, professionalism and attention to detail. The team project approach meant that there was always someone available to help and turn things around very quickly. Across finance, property and marketing, I felt that you left no stone unturned to give every buyer a chance to view and purchase the property. You made the process a lot easier than it could have been and I would recommend you to anyone."

Thank you both for all your wonderful assistance leading up to the sale of our home, it was a year long journey of finding the next home to meet our needs, which at times felt like we were attempting the impossible. You listened to each request, answered all our questions thoroughly. You were always by our side or just a phone call away. Through the many homes you viewed with us you were very patient and caring. We appreciated the assurance from you not to settle for less as we were giving up hope of ever finding the next home.
As for the sale of our home in a matter of weeks, we are grateful for the experience and skills you both have to negotiate with the buyer to meet our price expectation. The sale went smoothly and the auctioneer was very professional. We were also impressed by a point of difference that Bayleys offers the vendor in that the key is held by the listing agent, after all the listing agent knows the requirements of the vendor and how to present the house at its best!
Thank you both so much for your guidance.
“We decided to list our home for sale with Lyn and Scott Penney, as they had recently sold two other properties in our sub-division. We were impressed with their professionalism from day 1, and throughout the sale process. Scott and Lyn, and their team were very respectful of our young family, and were happy to work around us in marketing our property. In consultation with us, they put together an outstanding marketing campaign. Their communication was first class. We feel Scott and Lyn went the extra mile whenever they could, and exceeded our expectations with the final result we achieved. They were always willing to answer questions and offer advice as the need arose. We would have no hesitation in recommending them as real estate agents. As individuals, they are great, but as a team with the commitment of the Bayleys' name, they are exceptional.”
