I settled on Waiheke Island in mid 2013, having lived the majority of my life in Wellington.
Up until then my career experience was in the women’s fashion industry. Over the previous decades, with a dedicated and wonderful team, we built a fabulous business and was one of Australasia’s most successful and respected clothing labels.
My love of selling, meeting people plus a new challenge, attracted me to join Bayleys Waiheke real estate in 2015.
I’m really happy to be enjoying a second career. I take it as a privilege to be listing and selling homes here on Waiheke. I feel I’ve made a successful transition from the fashion business to selling real estate.
For most of my clients, their home is their most valuable asset. I take the selling process of this asset very seriously.
My strengths are my enthusiasm, professionalism, integrity and most of all, a person you can trust.
I have known Ashley Fogel for a number of years and have transacted a multimillion property deal with him during that time. Ashley has a well-earned reputation for his business acumen and professionalism. He is a top performer and has an easy mastery of detail which I'm sure has been an essential skill behind his business success. Ashley can relate to any company and is a person who quickly earns the trust of those he deals with. He would be a reliable asset for any aspiring enterprise in my judgement.

I contacted Bayleys in June as I wanted to sell my home in order to pay for entering the Waiheke Retirement Village. Ashley Fogel came to see me and he spelt out all the procedures I needed to follow, very professionally and easy for me to understand - being 81 years old and needing help. Everything went very well - Ashley is a very considerate person, and I moved into my lovely villa on 10th October. I consider Ashley to now be a good friend and would advise anyone to use his such good services.
I found Ashley to be a very dedicated and determined Waiheke Island real estate specialist. He totally understood my guidelines and set about to make it happen. Ashley's tenacity, knowledge and good humour certainly impressed me. When dealing with real estate matters on the island, Ashley is the man for results.

I met Ashley Fogel in early 2016 when visiting New Zealand and Waiheke Island and being completely enchanted by its natural beauty. Waiheke captured my heart so much that I requested Ashley to help me find an escape pad for my family. I had a fairly specific brief to our requirements so as not to waste time. Ashley diligently sent me listings over the next few months and in November it seemed we were successful. As I could not be in New Zealand to view this listing, Ashley sent photos and videos and all the appropriate information to give me the confidence to make an offer without viewing the home, as I knew there would be other offers. If it had not been for Ashley, we never would have bought our property without having been able to see it. I'm now the proud owner of my slice of Waiheke paradise. Throughout this whole experience I found Ashley to be energetic, trustworthy, completely professional and excellent to deal with.

We can highly recommend Ashley Fogel for all residential and commercial property requirements. Ashley has concluded 3 transactions for us (a sale, a purchase and a commercial lease), and all 3 were completed in a professional and timely manner. Ashley is very personable, and took care to ensure that our needs were not only met, but exceeded - he even helped to dress our house for sale purposes. Ashley found a tenant for our commercial building, and was very helpful in negotiating attractive lease terms and conditions on our behalf. Ashley has a great understanding of the Waiheke market - you'll find no-one better.
