“I love people and feel hugely humbled to assist them during the most joyful times, and the not so joyful times, of their lives. It is an incredible feeling to have a vendor tell me I have positively changed their lives forever after a sale.”
It has been an overwhelming process with Tricia and Kym - overwhelming in the context of thorough preparation; intensive hard work; complete trust and integrity; absolute focus; care and sensitivity; straight talking communication. I wanted experienced, professional, and competitive people working at the top of their game for me. I enjoyed way more than I had sought or expected from Tricia and Kym.
The resulting sale of my property was quite unbelievable. Tricia and Kym had promised to always be at their best for me. Their detailed diligence delivered a 'best' that in fact was simply brilliant.

From the time that we first rang them, to the time we went unconditional with the sale of our property, Tricia and Kym have been amazing. Professional, organised, and caring, we would have no hesitation in using them again or recommending their services to others.
Kurt and Liz O'Connell- Kiwi Street, Oneroa
“We have sold more than a dozen houses on Waiheke Island over the last 25 years, with the help of Bayleys and a number of other real estate agencies.
We are so pleased that this time we engaged Tricia and Kym soon after they started working for Bayleys Waiheke. When we were introduced, we felt an immediate affinity: they are very real-honest, funny, cool and tasteful- and also clearly very confident and experienced in the real estate scene.
We appreciated their style and advice in designing a beautiful marketing campaign. We felt involved and considered in all decisions made over sales strategy. Most of all we loved the way they gave us immediate verbal feedback about everyone who viewed our villa- and detailed weekly written reports. Their incredibly high levels of communication with both us and prospective buyers was unprecedented- and it is the kind of service we believe everyone selling a house on Waiheke deserves. They appreciated the lovely things that made our house special and therefore desirable- and worked incredibly hard to find the right buyer.
In short, the journey of selling a home- a house you have put your heart and soul into- can be an emotional roller coaster- but Tricia and Kym always had our backs. We can’t recommend them enough.”

“Tricia and Kym offer a unique partnership of skills built on years of experience and understanding about the emotional and economic forces at play when buying or selling residential property. In the end sellers seek professional, honest, hard-working and innovative agents, devoid of the negative property agent stereotypes and hyperbole. This is exactly what we experienced, making the selling process a thoroughly enjoyable one”.
Frances Valintine & Willliam McKegg
I have sold three houses over 8 years through Tricia and Kym – each time they have impressed with their energy, commitment and desire to get the right result for me, whether by auction or negotiation. I would unhesitatingly recommend Tricia and Kym to anyone selling their home”.
“Tricia and Kym recently sold our house. They did a tremendous job and we couldn't be happier. They make a great team; know their market and clients well. They are professional, proactive, agile, excellent communicators and go the extra mile to make sure both vendor and buyer are satisfied”.
Michele & Mike Embling
“Tricia and Kym recognise that every sale process is different, engage proactively with clients to develop a personalised strategy that is most likely to deliver the clients desired outcomes, then sweep in with a wave of enthusiasm, an extensive contact list, a targeted determination and a great sense of humor. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending these two outstanding women, the epitome of real estate professionalism, and more importantly amazing, committed and honest people”.
