When it comes to lifestyle and residential property Michele Mathieson is one of the best.
Over her career she's achieved spectacular success. In 2016 she was the No 1 agent in the Clarks Beach area of Franklin, selling in excess of $75 million worth of property. More recently Michele has been named top agent in the Pukekohe office for 2019/2020 and 2020/2021 and in the top 20 BRE Residential for 2020/2021. She has also made the top 5% of Bayleys Sales People 2020/2021.
Michele offers expertise in all aspects of a property transaction. She bought her first property to renovate in her early 20s and went on to own a nationwide building company with 27 franchises. The combination of Michele’s flair for design, her dedication and her interpersonal skills, means outstanding results for her real estate clients.
Michele offers strong negotiation skills honed from 40 years in the sales and service industry. This has also given her a unique ability to relate to people from all walks of life and she’s well known for her sparkling personality and sense of humour that leaves everyone with a smile on their faces.
If you choose to list with Michele you always come first. She will stop at nothing to get the results desired and is on call 7 days a week if need be, speaking volumes about her dedication and customer service. Michele rates listening to her clients as her number one priority so she can deliver exactly what they want and meet their needs every step of the way. In order to give her clients a truly personalised service Michele works with the assistance of two PAs (one of which is her daughter) who ensure everything flows smoothly. This leaves Michele free to work at the front line alongside her clients.
Michele is heavily involved in her local community and is a member of BNI Pukekohe and secretary of the Clarkes Beach and Waiau Business Association. She also supports the SPCA, Save the Children and Greenpeace and has hosted charity auctions and balls for Air Rescue Trust and Foundation for the Blind. In her spare time she enjoys jet skiing, playing the saxophone and piano and spending time with family.
Michele was born and bred in the Franklin district, giving her grassroots local knowledge that is hard to beat. This allows Michele to offer her clients the best expert advice when it comes to their lifestyle and residential property transactions.
Michele has been so supportive in enabling my partner and I to purchase a property we fell in love with. She seamlessly guided us through the process and no questions was ever too much for her and we asked so many. She's realistic and doesn't waste time! Thanks Michele!
Michele met all our expectations, made the whole process as stress free as it can be. Michele is extremely professional, knowledgeable and approachable, Raewyn and I would use again.
ANNELISE AND BRUCE HARKNESS
We were very pleased with Bayleys as Michele was most helpful on what was needed to make a good sale. She was in regular contact with us throughout the whole process with a wonderful outcome. We cannot praise them enough.

MICHEAL DOUGLAS ALLAN AND MEGAN ALWYN ALLAN
Michele has done several deals for us in the past. We always go back to her because she is committed to her vendors, has a good knowledge of legal issues relating to property and works hard to get the best deal for everyone concerned. Because of Michele's efforts our recent house sale exceeded our expectations.
ALANA VESE SMITH AND KENNY ROGERS AKULU
Purchasing a house for the first time on my own is a scary process. Michele helped me through the process and explained how it works. She was always open for questions at any time of day. Michele comes across as a wahine with warmth and aroha and I am grateful to have met her on this journey of purchasing a new home.
ANTHONY & RICHARD
Michele was always courteous, pleasant, treated all our discussions discreetly and kept the Trustees and my Attorney informed during the processes. Michele has acted for the Trust on 2 occasions and we appreciated all her running round getting the required signatures when required. Michele is very professional, knowledgeable and a genuinely , helpful Sales Agent.
RON & DIANE HOBMAN
Michele Mathieson sold our lifestyle property in Waiau Pa in super quick time. Her professional approach and wide range of potential buyers worked very well for us. It was on the market for only 2 days before she sold it, and was successful in achieving above our asking price. We are very appreciative of her efforts and follow up after the sale was made.
I have dealt with many people and especially real estate agents. I have found Michele to be the most honest and reliable person I have dealt with thus far. If it wasn’t for her honesty and integrity I probably wouldn’t have hired her to work for me to sell my properties at Waiau Pa. It was refreshing to finally find a person who was honest enough to say what she meant no matter what the outcome. I guess I’m old school where you do deals on a hand shake but having said that it was nice to finally meet someone who had the same values. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Michele to anyone.
DEBBIE AND GARY PAYNE
Michele has successfully sold 3 properties for us over the past year. Sha has made what is normally a stressful experience enjoyable and stress free. Everything we asked and agreed to was completed on time and to a very high quality. We believe this made a difference and resulted in the quick sale of two properties. It’s also nice to feel the agent is working for the vendor. This is exactly how we feel Michele has approached things on our behalf. From the time of listing Michele was committed to selling our property. Her absolute commitment was confirmed when we met late one evening to receive an offer. We counter signed and rather than waiting to meet with the purchaser the next day, she drove from Clarks beach to St Marys Bay to get the purchaser to agree to our counter offer. I understand Michele got home that evening at 11:30pm. What Michele does over and above any agent we have dealt with before is she goes the extra mile. We were surprised to hear she was helping another agent sell one of our purchaser’s properties so they could then agree to buy our property. Surprise for us was she was doing this in her free time to make sure our property would sell. Michele has been a dream agent and, more importantly, we have achieved above expectation settlements which has meant our next property has been better than we thought we could afford. Great out come and we are very happy.
