Rachel Dovey heads residential sales strategy and market growth for the greater Eastern Bays suburbs.
Located in the Bayleys Remuera office, Rachel manages a residential sales team boasting some of the best-known real estate names in Remuera, Parnell, Newmarket and surrounding areas.
The Eastern Bays residential team reflects the cultural diversity and multifarious needs of its clients, and the culture within it is similarly important to Rachel. Her management style is “open door” and practical with a focus on goal setting; the individual growth of team members; and adherence to compliance.
Rachel’s ability to balance the demands of high-performing sales agents while overseeing the day-to-day running of a dynamic and busy office earned her the title of Bayleys Realty Group Manager of the Year in 2011. In 2015 she received the prestigious Graham Bayley Award for real estate services to Bayleys.
The Bayleys Remuera office houses a purpose-built regional auction facility named, in its first year, as Bayleys’ top auction room from across its nationwide network - thanks, in no small part, to its award-winning auctioneers.
Since the recent Auckland Unitary plan changes, the Eastern Bays team has specialised in quality apartment developments and boutique projects. Rachel’s own development knowledge has contributed to some eight new local projects now being under construction.
Additional to this, Rachel has championed an alliance with The University of Auckland’s Business School to provide students with market-relevant training, driving buddy programmes and augmenting women in the property sector. In recognition of this work last year, she received the Stuart McIntosh Award for services to the Property Division of the Business School.
Other achievements include:

For her own development, Rachel attends to ongoing learning and can be regularly seen at the Australasia Real Estate Conference (AREC). She recognises that physical fitness and wellness are vital aspects in the success of any role, and she is mindful to set time aside in her life for both.
