Katie has had a lifetime interest in and passion for residential properties. Her years of working closely with building managers and designers ensure Katie is familiar with home interior trends and section development.
Katie is approachable and genuine, committed to the community through sport, residential care and social services.
“In 2011 I fell in love with the area and purchased a property so I could live here. The area’s beauty and great sense of community really resonated with me and made me feel I had come home. I pride myself on my integrity and going the extra mile to gain the best for you and your property.”
Katie’s natural gift for easy communication with everyone she meets and her knack of styling a property to your best advantage make her a very well rounded sales woman.
November 2020 with the Christmas deadlines looming - out of the blue I decided I wanted to buy a property Katie had listed.
Katie gave me a realistic appraisal of my property & advised the best way to present it to the market. She carried out an intensive marketing plan, rigorously followed up all leads, and kept me fully informed of progress.
Katie’s efforts successfully achieved the sale of my property, and the transactions all happened smoothly. I found her excellent to work with - she is a professional & hard-working real estate agent with a can-do attitude.
We want to thank you for your dedication and tireless work in assisting us through the sales process for your family home recently. Your advice on de-cluttering and presenting our home of 20 years was welcomed and your professionalism in guiding us through the whole process from listing to sale, very much appreciated. We have no hesitation in recommending you to anybody else wanting to buy or sell their property. Thank you.

Katie marketed and sold our property in Bannockburn. It took her less than 2 weeks to sell and she spent a few weeks prior carefully planning and consulting with us. Katie knows the importance of knowing her vendors expectations and processes, how else could she fulfil them?
Having owned many properties and dealt with the best agents in Auckland, Sydney, and Melbourne, I found Katie to be amongst the best. The reason for my praise is measured against my criteria for agent selection. I knew our most important task was to select the right person for the job. From past experiences I knew careful consideration had always paid off in terms of the sale result, time on the market, and would avoid stress and grief. Always avoid selecting an agent who doesn't seek to understand your requirements or worse makes promises they cannot meet!
Below are 10 key attributes of Katie Seymour I enjoyed and recommend:
1. A strong and positive character.
2. Katie seeks, gathers and stores information to help her sell quicker and easier.
3. She knows the importance of planning (marketing, viewings and communications).
4. A very honest and excellent communicator.
5. Intelligence and EQ to know when a buyer presents.
6. Personality and perseverance to keep the purchaser and vendor engaged in the process.
7. A courteous person with a worldly attitude.
8. Willing to think outside the square and will go beyond expectation until the job is fully completed.
9. Creates a caring environment.
10. Provides confidentiality for vendors and purchasers alike.
Katie, thank you again for your kindness, well beyond what was required to do the job. We wish you the best with your plans. I am sure with your personal attributes and work ethic that you will create it.

There are lots of real estate agents operating in Central Otago, therefore I had ample choice when I wished to appoint an agent to sell my property. I was acquainted with a few agents operating under various companies and the choice was difficult.
I was impressed by Katie’s focused and passionate approach to her new career as a real estate agent. The briefing from Katie on alternative methods for selling my property, marketing options, including signage and photography, was comprehensive. Katie listened to my views and took my views into account. This gave me the confidence to appoint Katie to list the property for sale as sole agent.
I knew that with Katie’s friendly energetic nature, her keen involvement with people and the community, her enthusiastic approach and willingness to do the extra yards that I would get good service.
I was very impressed with the marketing material produced, it was of very high quality. The property sold within a few days. Katie kept me informed of all developments relating to the sale of the property and dealt with all aspects from first offer to final settlement in a professional manner.
I consider that I got excellent customer service and as far as Katie is concerned, a job well done.
I am delighted to write a testimonial for Katie Seymour.
My Husband and myself had heard through word of mouth Katie was working as a Sales Consultant for Bayleys Locations. On our 1st contact with Katie we knew we had found the right agent to sell our home.
Our experience with Katie has been nothing but amazing, she went above and beyond helping us sell our house. Katie was at all times professional, honest and always kept us well informed.
Our house was marketed for 5 weeks and successfully sold at auction.
Katie your work ethics, positive personality, kind words and sincerity have made you the best Sales Consultant you could be. We will be recommending you to everyone we know who wants an agent who knows the market, is honest, upfront and professional.
We thank you and your team at Bayleys Locations for the exceptional service we received.
With the kindest regards

We approached Katie Seymour in July 2018 with the task of selling our home in Bannockburn. She was most helpful and conscientious and achieved a very satisfactory result for us after only three weeks of being on the market. We can thoroughly recommend Katie with her positive attitude and helpful, caring manner for the seller.

Katie has high values and is extremely helpful. Katie has the ability of removing all the stress from her clients with her “can do attitude”. Katie constantly followed up and kept us in the loop to ensure the sale of our property went without a hitch. We would have no hesitation in recommending her and working with her again.
