Established in the property industry for over 12 years, Kathryn is experienced and well-networked.
A straight talker, she applies her in-depth knowledge of the Real Estate Act practically and clearly, enjoying an open communication style and ethical business model. Kathryn works hard for her clients and customers, driven by a sense of duty to provide a high level of service.
Prior to property, Kathryn learnt about people, psychology and how to negotiate effectively, from years spent frontline policing in South Auckland. Her attention to detail stems from her time working within a legal office, and her quite resolve and determination from the joys of parenting! Her previous industry experience spans the property spectrum and includes residential sales, commercial real estate (sales and leasing) investment property portfolios, residential apartment development projects, and client management. A large portion of Kathryn’s work is repeat and referral business (evidence of the sound long-term advice she gives), and she is a regular sponsor and donator to local charities, schools and sports clubs. Trusted and well-liked in the industry, her biggest asset is her ability to listen.
Kathryn works closely with a team of professionals able to assist in the ‘going to market’ stage, enabling vendors to step back and trust in the process, or even navigate a sale or purchase remotely. Partnering with the Bayleys’ brand allows for access to total property services across the residential and commercial spectrum.
Having lived in various North Shore locations since primary school age, Kathryn now calls Hauraki home. Her two teenagers attend Takapuna Grammar School, and the family (including French Bulldog Vinnie), are huge fans of the local community, in particular the amazing North Shore beaches!

“I have had the pleasure of working with Kathryn on a previous transaction. I was delighted with her unquestionable integrity and trustworthiness throughout. She was insightful and agile in trying to navigate difficult issues and was totally solution focused. I was impressed with her commercial acumen and her very high service levels. She understands that value can be lost with time and the importance to close things as fast as possible. She is very driven but this drive is balanced by a unique ability to bring parties together and build a relationship through the process. A hugely talented real estate professional. I would not hesitate to recommend Kathryn.”
JOE BIDDLES Director Thompson Blackie Biddles, Lawyers

“Janet and I would like to sincerely thank you for your excellent work in enabling our home to be sold for a most satisfactory outcome. It is a somewhat daunting undertaking for any home owner to place the well loved family house with its treasure trove of memories on the open market. A decision which in our case has taken many months if not years of soul searching to finally decide to sell. We approached you with some trepidation but due to your combined professionalism, experience and excellent communication skills the process of selling our home did not cause us all the stress that we had feared. We have really enjoyed working with you and want you to know we do appreciate all that you have done to facilitate the successful outcome. We realise of course that there is a lot of work behind the scenes involved in getting bidders to actually front up at the auction. Well done! We wish you well for your future endeavours. It has been a pleasure working with you. Again many thanks.”
