About Mikaela

Organised, focused and calm under pressure is the best way to describe Mikaela Pinkerton. With experience well beyond her years, Mikaela has been fortunate to have the ideal back ground with no less than five years of legal and Real Estate administration behind her. When an opportunity to be part of Whakatane’s most successful Bayleys Real Estate team was offered, Mikaela embraced the opportunity with both arms. Mikaela’s youth and enthusiasm has been a refreshing approach to her role within the Bayleys Whakatane sales team. 

With a keen eye for detail and exceptional communication skills, Mikaela brings a reliable, conscientious methodology to everything she does. She works hard to build and maintain strong relationships and takes pride in going the extra mile to ensure the best outcomes each and every day.

Born and bred in Whakatane, Mikaela is no stranger to the district and is extremely knowledgeable in all real estate aspects. Combine this with the very powerful Bayley’s brand, a huge national and international network and the best support systems, any vendor can be confident they will achieve the very best outcome for their property.




Mikaela and Rhys were great to work with on the recent sale of our lifestyle property.  At every step we found them professional, punctual and excellent communicators.  Everything happened when they said it would and they worked very hard for us to achieve a successful sale.  We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone considering listing their property for sale.

Working with both Mikaela and Rhys from Bayleys Whakatane was most certainly a pleasure.

An education to be sure for both Peter and myself they made it informative and easy, as well as helping us to understand different sale processes and how they worked.

Stephen Shale provided videos to us at pivotal times as we moved through the process of showing our home and going to auction. These videos are invaluable and gave us insight into how the process works for you as well as allowing you to be at ease and to trust a tried and proven process that has been successful for others.

While Rhys provided hints at simple things to do while showing our home Mikaela's work helped keep us on track with the lawyer and council.

We were always left informed after open homes, it was not a mystery. The team were never too busy to speak with us and to answer our questions.

On auction day the team that had been working with us shined as they worked for us to get the best possible result. We have had houses sold before, I would work with Bayleys again in future.

True professionals in every sense of the word.

I was given the task on behalf of our family to sell my mother’s home and had the choice of several agents in the Whakatane area.

From the moment I met Mikaela Pinkerton, she made me feel relaxed and that she was definitely the real estate person I should deal with. As I was working on behalf of the family group, Mikaela understood our requirements and guided us through the process with ease.

Mikaela’s approach is friendly and positive, and we felt totally confident in her ability to sell our mother’s house. The whole process was hassle-free, and we were kept informed at all times. Mikaela’s service and commitment to selling our house exceeded our expectations.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Mikaela and her company Bayleys to future clients and would welcome any phone references.

Wishing Mikaela all the best in her future sales career and putting many more people into the house of their dreams.

Mikaela has been a delight to work with whilst advertising and selling our home in Matata. From day one her enthusiasm and professional approach impressed us. Her knowledge of the market and sound advice were invaluable on helping us achieve a speedy sale. Mikaela’s passion for her job and enjoyment of what she does is obvious whether talking face to face or over the phone. Her IT skills are excellent allowing us to receive updates on viewings and enquiries. The range of publications offered to us were all explained and allowed us to realise why Bayleys are the number one estate agent in Whakatane. We would recommend Mikaela and the team to anyone wanting a professional service when selling their home. We have given their details to our son who has signed them up to hopefully sell his house too.

We listed our property with Mikaela through Bayleys Whakatane and found her to be an absolute delight to work with. She was friendly, professional and always communicated clearly and regularly throughout the entire process.  She was also very patient with us and had some good suggestions which lead to a successful sale. I fully recommend Mikaela as an agent and wish her well with her career.

From start to finish of the sale of our property, Mikaela was incredibly professional, knowledgeable of the local market, friendly and reliable.

She kept us well informed throughout the sale campaign and went above and beyond to ensure the best sale price of our property.

Mikaela made the whole process stress free and I can't thank her enough for all of her hard work.

I wouldn't hesitate to work with Mikaela again and highly recommend her if you're looking for an amazing agent who ensures the best for her clients.

My husband and I had the pleasure of listing our property with Mikaela through Bayleys Real Estate in July 2020. We found interactions with Mikaela were very simple and easy. Mikaela was full of knowledge and had great advice throughout the process. Mikaela was very clear and prompt with all communications. We found interactions with Mikaela to be very professional. Mikaela presented us with great information and feedback after each open home and kept us well up to date with what was going on.

Our property was listed previously with another agency for a very extended amount of time, however to no avail.

We very much appreciate that Mikaela gave us her 100% and the extra mile she chooses to go in her approach to all aspects of the selling process. The proof of that, was clear upon selling our property within 6 weeks.

We will happily continue future dealing with Mikaela whether it be selling or buying, the process with Mikaela is made easy and has satisfying outcomes. We wish Mikaela all the best in her future.

We have recently sold our late parents unit at 246A Ocean rd Ohope. Mikaela Pinkerton from Bayleys Whakatane was the agent dealing with the sale process and the interested parties. She responded in all situations in a very professional manner, always polite, prompt and personable in all dealings. I will have no hesitation in recommending Mikaela to any of my friends/colleagues who need the services of a Real Estate agent. I and my family wish Mikaela well in all her future endeavors.

To Whom It May Concern

Recently, we have had the good pleasure to engage Rhys Mischefski and Larissa Reid of Bayleys Real Estate to sell a range of properties for us.

They have worked and continue to work very hard, conscientiously and innovatively to achieve a pleasing level of sales in a relatively slow or quiet market.

Having engaged the services of a number of real estate agents over the years, we have never had any who exhibited the same attitude of loyalty to their clients as do Rhys and Larissa in trying to achieve the best for them. Rhys and Larissa have also had the weight of the nationwide Bayleys network behind them which is a real advantage when trying to market properties nationwide.

They have recently been joined by Mikaela Pinkerton and it is a pleasure to work with them all. We look forward to an ongoing successful relationship with them.
