About Kathy

Contact Kathy for professional service with integrity and commitment to maximising the value of your property.

Kathy was originally awarded one of Bayleys inaugural National Rural Scholarships and previous to that spent over 20 years of farming in the Tararua and Central Hawke’s Bay areas.

Her self-motivated and focused work ethic saw Kathy progress from sharemilking, to forming a dairy equity partnership, and then moving onto farm ownership of both dairy and drystock farms. Having bought and sold properties herself, Kathy understands clients needs, both the excitement and stresses that can be involved and manages this with a calm, caring, authentic and down-to-earth manner.

Kathy has a Massey Diploma in Agriculture (awarded with Distinction and joint top graduate) and is a previous winner of the Hawke’s Bay/Wairarapa Sharemilker of the Year, also receiving the Herd Records and Financial Management awards, and was placed runner-up in the NZ National competition.

Along with having raised two sons, Kathy has had a large involvement in the local community, having previously offered her financial management skills to be Treasurer of various educational organizations. She is a former Fonterra Shareholders Networker and a current member of the Tararua Dairy Womens Network and Hawke’s Bay Orienteering Club.

Kathy’s rural industry experience, knowledge, networks, and her commitment to providing excellent service with confidentiality, integrity and attention to detail, is a great combination together with Bayleys broader resources, reach and contacts.



Being faced with a decision to sell can be a daunting prospect. However, we consider ourselves extremely lucky to have acquired the services of Kathy Young, Bayleys, in the sale of our property, “Seascape”. Kathy has brought an honest and forthright approach to our marketing, meeting all challenges with energy, enthusiasm and drive, despite having to deal with a property that is not on everyone’s agenda. She could not have done more in the promotion, being devoted to the task, and to say we are extremely pleased with all her efforts, would be an understatement. Kathy is fully recommended by us, without hesitation.

“We met Kathy Young when we were thinking of selling our property. She offered to put a proposal together and we decided to go ahead and took her on as our preferred agent for the selling of our lifestyle block. Kathy put a lot of work in the advertising and contacting potential buyers. She is very good in working with the wishes for us as vendors. She follows up on people who have shown interest and is flexible in finding solutions for the vendor as well as the buyer. It is our pleasure to highly recommend Kathy as a preferred agent for your real estate.”

We first met Kathy when we were all on the committee of a community group, Kathy as treasurer. We were impressed with her efficient contribution to this group; with her integrity and willing attitude.

Kathy had joined the Bayleys team, and having decided to sell our farm, we consequently asked her to act on behalf of Bayleys to manage the sale. We were guided through the procedures and protocol and Kathy presented the options for the best outcome as far as advertising and promotion was concerned, carrying these through with her usual energetic, meticulous attention to detail. There was conscientious contact keeping us up to date with the marketing activity and the successful outcome of the sale is testament to Kathy’s dedication and skill.
