About Jeremy

Nelson raised, Jeremy’s international communications career runs broad and deep. Encompassing Television production, ad-agency Art Direction, graphic design, corporate communications and now recipient of the real estate industry’s 75 Million Dollar Diamond clasp, Jeremy’s hallmark as a consummate marketer and negotiator underpins his clients’ frequent testimony as their “agent of choice”.

“What have I learnt from it all?”

That honest endeavor, integrity and simple good manners are essential to success in anything to do with people….and in real estate one must add zest, humour, optimism and professional skill”.

Selling or purchasing a home can be an exhilarating experience.

It must be, because whenever I’m with clients or acquaintances all they ever want to talk about is real estate!

I love this business because guiding the deep forces at work in the process is both privilege and delight to me….few professions can match it.

There are lots of zero’s in the numbers around real estate so it’s not something to trifle with. The stakes are high.

New Zealand purchasers and sellers enjoy robust law, professional boundaries and enforceable Codes of Practice protecting their interests.

But it’s the marketing nouse, the proven reputation, the ability and the depth of understanding in the agent that makes the difference between a result, and a great result for our clients. 

I know Nelson and how it ticks.

I know the nooks and crannies, the delights and the pitfalls.

I know how and where YOU can enjoy the best this stunning region offers.

I run a limited client-book so that my service remains top-shelf and personal.

When it’s your time to make your next real estate decision in Nelson, call me.



"Jeremy Matthews of Bayleys, Nelson, is about as good as they get.

I have been in property for more than fifty years and I place Jeremy along side the very best I have encountered throughout New Zealand and Australia.

Why – Jeremy is passionate, of strong ethics and straight up. He’s intelligent, truthful and hugely professional albeit with an appropriate and delightful sense of humour. 

He is of purpose, undertaking all that he commits to. No waffle, no shallow promises and most importantly he speaks the truth.

Why did I choose Jeremy – he was recommended by another hugely successful real estate agent who said he is the best. They were not wrong – Jeremy is ‘right up there’. 

“Jeremy, thank you for conducting a very successful marketing campaign for us – we funded the campaign – you made it happen like no other”. "

"After researching agents to sell our family home, I chose Jeremy Matthews at Bayleys. I have been patting myself on the back for making an excellent choice ever since. Jeremy has proved to be just the right person for us, every step of the way. He marries strong market knowledge and professional expertise with energetic, unfeigned enthusiasm. Bayleys has the right resources to produce a really strong campaign; it looks great, and reaches deeply into the right markets. Jeremy adds the human touch, making the personal connections, identifying the real interest, following up on the detail and keeping everyone informed and engaged. He never lets the energy flag or the good humour fade. In short, he has made what could be a fraught process a remarkably painless experience.

Stellar effort thanks Jeremy."

Thanks again and all the best,

James Meffan

"I wish to commend you on the professional and enthusiastic manner which you exhibited during the sale of my house.

I have bought and sold a number of houses around New Zealand and I must say I have never experienced such enthusiasm from any other agent.

You were always "Just on the end of the phone" and never failed to answer any queries I had and they were many and varied. Your approach was always calm and reassuring and sensible advice was available when asked for.

Once again thank you and I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any one else who wishes to sell a house."

Kind Regards

Terri Potroz
